I usually enjoy Sony’s press conferences, and this year they teased big Japanese game announcements, so let’s see what they have to show us!

Sony’s E3 2017 Press Conference

As I tuned in to prepare for Sony’s press conference, I caught part of the pre-show… including a quiet announcement of Undertale for the PS4 and Vita. Now, I already played (and loved) Undertale, but I’m definitely interested in the Collector’s Edition at least.

Then the press conference itself began with a trailer for Uncharted: The Lost Legacy.

I haven’t played past Uncharted 2 yet, but it seems interesting enough, as does the game they announced next, an expansion for Horizon Zero Dawn called The Frozen Wilds.

Then they showed Days Gone, which I’m not particularly interested in, discussed recent PlayStation games, and announced Monster Hunter: World.

After that, they revealed that Shadow of the Colossus is being remade/remastered for the PS4. (There seems to be some confusion over whether it’s a remake or a remaster, but I think it’s a remaster.)

(Update: I was wrong. They’re calling it a remake, although the content will be the same.)

Next up was the new Marvel vs. Capcom game, Marvel vs. Capcom: Infinite, which has a story demo already available. It was followed by Call of Duty: World War II.

Virtual reality took over for the next segment of the press conference, with Skyrim VR, an intriguing game called Star Child, a creepy game called The Inpatient, a FFXV fishing spin-off (why?) called Monster of the Deep, a shooter called Bravo Team, and a game called Moss. Moss, which stars a mouse, actually looks interesting, although I’m not into VR.

You know what else looks pretty cool? The new God of War game. I wasn’t sure about it when it was first announced, and I’ve never played a game in the series, but it looks good.

Next up was Detroit: Become Human. The last time they showed this game, it seemed really interesting. This time, it was much more focused on action than I expected, but it still seems interesting.

Destiny 2 was announced next, with a mention of its exclusive PlayStation content, and then they showed a new Spider-Man game that looks like it could be fun.

And then… it was over.

Weirdly, the pre-show had many cool things, like the Undertale announcement, a Ni No Kuni II trailer and gameplay video, a Crash Bandicoot N. Sane Trilogy trailer featuring Coco, and a September 5 release date for Knack II.

But the conference itself felt oddly short and underwhelming. It’s a strange E3 when I enjoy Ubisoft’s press conference more than Sony’s. Here’s hoping Nintendo’s goes well tomorrow!

  1. Quite frankly, it was a bad conference both in terms of production values and content. Nothing interesting! Sad!

    Companies need to stop thinking “LET THE GAMES DO THE TALKING” is a good presentation strategy, especially when your sound quality sucks. <.<
