Sony PS4 Paris

Last night’s press conference, was…odd. When it comes to big announcements, E3 normally rules the roost for Sony, creating an electric atmosphere that results in me jumping from my chair and bellowing that I am indeed awake the second I see something related to Batman on the big Sony screen and this is an inside joke so you had to be there to get it okay moving on.

Anyway. The Sony press conference at Paris Games Week was alright. It had its fair share of high and lowlights. Street Fighter V’s Yoshinori Ono’s enthusiasm was adorably infectious as usual, while Gran Turismo’s Kazunori Yamauchi took the to the stage with the enthusiasm of a death row prisoner walking the green mile.

Over a two hour session however, Sony had a ton of projects to announce. Big-name franchises such as Street Fighter V, Tekken 7 and Uncharted 4 dropped new details, upcoming new games showed off more gameplay and Sony big cheese Shuhei Yoshida had a lot to say about PlayStation VR.

Which still looks a tad bit gimmicky so far, but I might only be saying that because even small doses of PlayStation VR featuring people pretending to be piloting Iron Man armour may have given me vertigo. Anyway, we covered a bunch of the content last night. Here’s what you may have missed:

So, yay or nay for you? You down with seeing Sony spread their news over two major events, or do you prefer a more annual stream of Wrestlemania proportions when it comes to showing off some big games?

Something wrong gentlemen? You come here prepared to read the words of a madman, and instead found a lunatic obsessed with comics, Batman and Raul Julia’s M Bison performance in the 1994 Street Fighter movie? Fine! Keep your bio! In fact, now might be a good time to pray to it!

    Gran Turismo Sport? 2020 release date?

    It took 5.5 years to make GT4, Why do they not just remaster that game while we wait? Or is it all about timed car licenses?

    Project Cars FTW.
