Some of us were a little disappointed by the PlayStation E3 Conference, and we wanted them to show a little more and (god help us) talk a little more about what we can expect from them for the future. We might have our prayers granted by the PlayStation powers that be with some interesting things at the end of this month.
Sony will be at the Paris Games Week, and they are bringing their PlayStation Media Showcase. Starting at 8:00 AM PT, Sony “will kick off with a slew of updates and announcements before moving straight into the Paris Games Week 2017 Media Showcase, where you’ll get a new look at some spectacular games coming to PS4 and PS VR”.
That sounds pretty good, but whether that means new game announcements or only new trailers of upcoming games is yet to be seen. We have the Schrödinger’s cat of glasses, so it is both half full and half empty for now. If it is just a bunch of the same trailers with nothing new, we can throw the glass against a brick wall.
We are still excited about the chance to see more new games, especially since the PS4 is in its mature phase. Outside of being able to buy its own cigarettes and rent an apartment, developers have had plenty of time to figure out how to push the hardware to its fullest potential. Until the PS5 is released, we should be in a golden age of AAA games that are visually beautiful and have fewer technical issues.
If we have to put on our +5 Helmets of Prediction, we should have new trailers for The Last of Us 2, Days Gone, Detroit: Become Human, Final Fantasy VII, God of War, and Kingdom Hearts 3 with release dates for Final Fantasy VII and at least one more game. What actually happens is probably still being nailed down for the show.
Whether it has the power to heal the maladies of the sick or is just more of the same, we can all watch together on live.playstation.com, Twitch, Facebook, and YouTube, and be sure to check back here on October 30th to see what really happens, you Negative Nancies and Polly Positives.
Jason became terminally addicted to videogames after receiving the NES at an early age. This addiction grew to include PC gaming and was cemented with the launch of the PS2. From then on, he was afflicted with epic RPGs, tense shooters, and deep strategy games, never becoming skillful, but never able to quit. He continues to play games (poorly) and share his passion for them to anyone willing to listen.
