    Sure Sony’s keeping the big bombs right till the end, dropping 3 or 4 AAA exclusives incoming!! (Where’s The Order, that really looked nice!)

      I think that’s it bud… Multiplatform titles now. I was really excited about Shadow of the Beast until I realised it looked like a God of War clone.
      Lots of cool indie titles though but most of it’s been meh tbh.

      So far anyway.

      EDIT: and now a Battlefield 1942 clone – we’ve been having it

    WOW, Sony seriously lost all it’s momentum! MS blew them away in half the time non broadcasted event!


    • Wesley Fick

      Microsoft’s event was terribly lackluster, anyhow.

        Hey at least FIFA 14 is free for bone preordering.. lol! Even though, just buying a PS4 with FIFA 14 will come out cheaper than getting a bone.

        Ha Ha Ha! Noticed how all those Indies were “exclusive at launch”?!

    Sony Press Conference sucked eggs. Time to remove that pre-order methinks.


    • Brian

      August 20, 2013 at 20:41

      I’m going to do just that and wait for the X1 to launch.


    • Jakster

      August 20, 2013 at 20:42

      Oh, how the tables have turned.


      • Jim Lenoir (Banana Jim)

        August 20, 2013 at 21:08

        lol -10 for trolling

        The Xbox trolls are just embarrassing themselves now. There is fail, and then there is an xbox troll.

      Fake lans is fake

    Have to say, Sony did a great job here. They kept the information flowing, gave a few liver shots to Microsoft – much deserved, and now I know when I can go pick up my PS4.

    But seriously, I love that Sony is showing Indie Devs some much needed love, and I know I’m going to be accused of being a smelly ass Hipster, but one of my favourite games of the last two years has been Terraria. I’ve probably ploughed hundreds of hours into it.

    Not all the indie games are great, in fact not many are good, but you have these singular titles that carry more heart and soul than most AAA games combined. Where AssCreed 3 left me angry and deflated, it was Terraria that wiped away my tears.

    You get a thumbs up from me Sony! A damn thumbs up! Good show lads.
