2018 Playstation titles shown at E3 to release within the next 12 months

Many fans were disappointed with the release windows of all of Sony's E3 titles this year. The wait, however, might not be as long as some had feared. Yes, all of Sony's big E3 titles will be launching next year, but Shawn Layden has clarified that they will release in the first half of 2018. 

Here is what he had to say when asked in a recent interview:

And the stuff coming in 2018, all of that is coming in the first half of the year, so. Is it in the next 12 to 13 months? Most likely. So.

Sony defends decision to not support cross play with Rocket League and Minecraft

As you know, Minecraft and Rocket League will be able to play with each other regardless of what system they are played on... except if that system is Playstation. 

Well, Sony has now defended the decision to not participate with Microsoft and Nintendo. Here is what Jim Ryan had to say when asked:

We've got to be mindful of our responsibility to our install base. Minecraft - the demographic playing that, you know as well as I do, it's all ages but it's also very young. We have a contract with the people who go online with us, that we look after them and they are within the PlayStation curated universe. Exposing what in many cases are children to external influences we have no ability to manage or look after, it's something we have to think about very carefully.

With all due respect to Ryan, that answer was nothing buy BS. It is absurd that Playstation users won't be able to play with Nintendo and Xbox players, and this reasoning is nonsense. 

Sony E3 2017 Press Conference - Quick Impressions

For starters, I was planning on making a "everything revealed at Sony's press conference post", but I decided against it due to the nature of their showcase. Instead, I thought to just write up a short post about my general feelings regarding their show, and also provide a place for anyone else to share their thoughts. 

That. Was. Not good. Don't get me wrong, it wasn't awful. But Sony's E3 press conference certainly did not impress. To be honest, it wasn't even a real press conference due to the fact that they showed nothing but trailers. They had no live demos, no commentary, no talking points, and no reason to have a stage. It made for a pretty boring show. 

Moving on to the actual content. That also did not impress. Nothing outside of their VR section was a brand new game. Yes, games like God of War, Detroit, and others look to be excellent games. But it is hard to get hyped up about these games considering we have seen them already. 

The only huge thing that I believe was crazy awesome is the Shadow of the Colossus remaster. Long time followers of the site know how special that game is to me, and seeing it with those new visuals was incredible. It may be my single favorite moment of E3, and the only game that surprised people at Sony's conference. 

What did you think of Sony's conference? Good, bad, awful? Let me know in the comments below!

Sony files several new trademarks

Sony has filed several new trademarks just ahead of their E3 2017 press conference, which is scheduled for later tonight at 9 ET. The most interesting of them, at least to me, is a new Shadow of the Colossus trademark. Here is a list of the others:

  • Frantics
  • Knowledge is Power
  • Bravo Team
  • The Inpatient

Any guesses as to what these could be?

Unannounced Sony title rated for PS4

As you can see, Knack 2 was also rated. I assume it is very far along in the development cycle, so we should be hearing news about a release date soon. Maybe even before E3!
