PS4, Rumors

Rumor: More Game Announcements Coming For Sony Consoles at Tokyo Game Show

by on September 2, 2014 5:43 AM 125

Yesterday Sony Computer Entertainment hit heavily with plenty game announcements at its pre-Tokyo Game Show PlayStation press conference, and many are wondering if there’s more to come.

According to industry insider Shinobi602 who has always been definitely reliable with what his sources tell him, there’s more to come at Tokyo Game Show proper for Sony’s consoles.

Shinobi mentioned that he’s receiving info about “a bit of both” between games that have already been announced and others that have yet to be announced, both from Japanese first and third party studios, and that more game announcements are coming at the show.

As usual, he also clarified that he’s hearing this from his sources. Unfortunately, when asked if one of those new announcements will be about The Last Guardian, the answer was predictably negative.

Of course, despite Shinobi’s usual reliability, you should treat this kind of rumors with a grain of salt, as they don’t equate to an official announcement from Sony. It’s also worth mentioning that Sony Computer Entertainment will kick off the show on the 17th with another conference dedicated to the Asian market.

This year I’ll be running around the show floor at the Makuhari Messe, so whatever is going to be announced or shown, you can count on reading all about it here on DualShockers.

          I like having fun with gifs :D

          • Stranger On The Road

            and to be honest, I do enjoy view them and the memes. They are one of the reasons I enjoy the comment section :-)

      • They Call Me Senpai

        Calm down, they’re just harmless gifs.

        • Miami Prodigy

          Sorry, this fanboy BS is getting really, REALLY old and it is getting on my nerves.

          Loyalty to a plastic box and making fun of the competition…. it’s getting really annoying.

          • Giuseppe Nelva

            While I personally don’t very much care for console war gifs (or the console war in general), I’m not sure if loyalty for a plastic box is much worse than letting a gif in which the personification of a plastic box gets punched get to your nerves.

          • Miami Prodigy

            Wow you really think a gif bothers me that much?

            Check his comment history…. it’s the same crap over and over at dualshockers.

            Make fun of Xbox on articles that have nothing to do with Xbox or MS…. that’s what bothers me the most.

            The fact that you felt that would serve as a comeback kinda indicates they do indeed bother you. A lot.

          • Miami Prodigy

            He said *violin* as if my comment is some sad story or that I’m looking for some pitty when the fact is I have a Wii U, X1, 3ds and Im planning to buy a PS4 when uncharted comes out.

            So if you don’t mind please tell me what bothers me so much?

          • http://www.youtube.com/PathOfJioFreed Danny DeMent

            Aside from the fact that you kinda proved it did when you kept going?

            Not sure how you saying you own other systems is supposed to prove anything to the contrary, bud. In fact, that kinda illustrates WHY it bothers you.

          • Miami Prodigy

            Kept going? Meaning replying back to a comment…. that makes it bother me?

          • http://www.youtube.com/PathOfJioFreed Danny DeMent

            It’s a pretty big indicator, yeah.

          • Michael Norris

            eh they’re harmless.
            Annoying yes, but ultimately harmless.

          • They Call Me Senpai

            I understand what you’re saying, but it doesn’t seem like he’s trolling, just having some fun.

          • Budgiecat

            I dont mind these .gifs but lets not BS here:

            if the shoe were on the other foot and someone was posting XB1 .gifs making fun of Sony, there’d be hella butthurt angst and ‘troll’ accusations being thrown around left and right here…

          • Alter

            Nope, why don’t you try one?
            *boot-up a particle cannon*

          • Delsin Boss

            No it doesnt. we’re enjoying this, if you’re not, the door is open ;)

          • TheFatDeliquent

            No one can escape fanboyism; be it a PS gamer, an Xbox gamer, a PC gamer or a Nintendo gamer. Even if you own all the platforms, you`ll unconsciously prefers one over the other. +I prefer gifs (as long as its entertaining and creative) over texts!

          • Lumego1

            Exactly. Everyone has a bias for a system no matter how unbiased they claim to be. I have both ps4 and x1 as well just prefer playing my ps4 more. The main thing that got out of hand was the fact that someone posted a gif that got so many responses. For whoever didn’t care or wasn’t bothered by the gif, why respond in the first place?

          • Agustin Freyre

            On thing is trolling like a fanboy, another is posting an humorous gif. You need to see the diference. Those gifs are funny even if they are “against” your console of choice. Dont get hysterical over nothing

          • Michael Norris

            Getting mad for no reason,i have seen much worse.

          • phar0ahad3

            Then why are you on dualshockers i mean look at the name dualshockers this site is mostly for PS news if you want xbox news go to ummmmm ummm ESPN or put on Fox News……………….

          • They Call Me Senpai

            The sites name isn’t an indication of bias, I’m not sure how many times that that’s been explained.

          • phar0ahad3

            There is a little bit of sony bias here lets not sugercoat it but at the same time its the good type of bias where they dont bash other companies and they post news for all but sometimes they talk extremely excited for new sony stuff and then just deliver the news for other companies positive news and im a sony fanboy but atleast im being honest thats what keeps this community the best in gaming as long as were honest ……………

          • demfax

            Silly gifs like that are one of the less offensive things out there and they don’t mean loyalty, and you’re a hypocrite for accusing others of “loyalty to a plastic box”.

        • Nordu

          Not sure if his original comment required a “calm down” but his response sure did :O That said I think most people posting these gifs I’m talking bout “fanboys” have only owned the newest gen of consoles, most people that I know who have owned the older generation of consoles or multiple platforms are more classy and don’t really see the need to argue over such trivial things, then again those of who do are likely not teens so…yeah.

    • Anders
      • Stranger On The Road

        wow, even the DriveClub logo is added, that is some dedication!

        that being said, the race should be fair… me think wrong video selected for the GIF :-)

        • Tmfwang

          Thats because this is from a playstation comercial called its such a perfect day, find it on YT

      • Dennis Djoenz

        That one is superbly done! :P

    • Oddsock

      What is this generation coming to?

    • Big Boss

      I have never seen gifs so glorious….

  • Stranger On The Road

    who will you be cosplaying while attending TGS? Cosplaying as a blogger or a reporter or a journalist doesn’t count, especially when that is what you are!

    It is not too late to make the cloth of main character in Bloodborne and wear them while reporting from XB1 booth(es).

    Edit: changed the wording

    • Giuseppe Nelva

      Nope. No cosplay for me :D

  • dranzer1

    Indies or AAA?

    • Giuseppe Nelva

      Knowing Shinobi, he normally doesn’t go “oh shit” for indies.

      (as much as I love indies)

    • They Call Me Senpai

      Doesn’t matter.

      • Delsin Boss

        it does actually.

        • Anarky

          Why does it matter? Games are games.

        • Agustin Freyre

          I enjoyed Transistor more than many super duper AAA games… so…
          It does matter, but not much.

        • They Call Me Senpai

          It doesn’t.

          • Delsin Boss

            of course it does. we have plenty of indies right now, now we want more AAA Games. don’t be like that.

      • Kingdom17

        Did they even announce any new indies at the Pre-show conference? It seemed to me to be mostly AAA and AA games.

        • They Call Me Senpai

          I’m not sure, I couldn’t watch the stream.

  • They Call Me Senpai

    I want to see something from Japan Studio, I’d love to know that they’re working on a JRPG or Puppeteer sequel.

    • Negi Springfield

      You know what I`d want to see from Japan Studio ?

      A JRPG that would rival Final Fantasy , Story , Gameplay , Graphics-wise.

    • Anders

      I don’t think we will see more unannounced games from Studio Japan in the near future.
      They are currently working on Everybody’s Golf, The Tomorrow Children and Bloodborne and possibly more games I don’t remember.
      Edit: Gravity Rush 2

      • Giuseppe Nelva

        Everybody’s Golf and TTC are not from Japan Studio.

        • Anders

          Okay, I wasn’t sure about Everybody’s Golf but Qgames is definitely working with Studio Japan on The Tomorrow Children.

  • Chris Yuen

    oh look another article based off someone’s tweet. Why don’t you guys publish stuff when it’s actually confirmed instead of speculation? The site’s reputation might be higher if you guys just cut down these type of stuff.

    • Giuseppe Nelva

      Hey Chris.

      We publish whatever we feel is relevant. And we feel this is relevant. It’s our call. Not yours.

      If you don’t like it, there are plenty sites out there that will be absolutely happy to only regurgitate press releases for you.

      • Aubrey Graham

        You tell him Giuseppe!

    • They Call Me Senpai

      The site actually has a very good reputation, so don’t tell them how to do their job.

    • Duke

      Coming to this site is far better than going to other sites like IGN, Gamespot and so on. These guys constantly update us with plenty of articles and they provide information before most other sites.

      Most people like Dualshockers, especially for the way they interact with other people and moderate the comment section. You don’t get that at most sites. If you don’t like it, I doubt they will miss you.

    • Black Heaven

      Well, it’s tagged as ‘Rumors’ so clicking this article would imply you’ll take its content with skepticism.

      Regarding its relevance, I trust they have good taste and judgment. I don’t think they’ll report tweets of Sony / MS / Nintendo CEO’s breakast.

      • Giuseppe Nelva

        That said, Kojima’s breakfast always looks yummy.

        Dude knows how to eat well.

        • Duke

          Jeez that guy likes to spam his twitter with pictures of his food.

          • Giuseppe Nelva

            Me too. I made Polenta this morning. It’s yummy.

            https://twitter.com/Abriael/status/506665287660634112

          • Duke

            Looks good, I’m Australian so either cereal, bacon and eggs or vegemite on toast does me.

          • Negi Springfield

            That looks tasty , Can I has ?

          • IncognitosX

            Never seen that before, actually had to google it.

          • Delsin Boss

            can i ask you what it is? i never ate Polenta :D

          • Giuseppe Nelva
        • Spoonyrogdrumps

          A lot of Asians eat well. Americans not so much.

  • Orichalon Hades

    considering Sony first party only announce 1 game ( well, 1.5 if you count The Tomorrow Children) it’s a possibility they’re saving some announcement for TGS.

    • Giuseppe Nelva

      The Tomorrow Children was announced at Gamescom.

      Personally, I’m betting on Gravity Rush 2. It was teased at TGS last tear, so an announcement this year would be fitting.

      • Orichalon Hades

        oh yea, was waiting for GR2 too. Hope it’ll be announce on TGS (along with that-game-that-shall-not-be-mentioned)

        • Giuseppe Nelva

          That game which shall not be mentioned won’t be there, I’m pretty sure :D

      • Budgiecat

        and Shenmue III

        • Giuseppe Nelva

          HAHAHAHAHAHAHA.

          Nice Joke :D

          • Budgiecat

            BELIEVE

          • Oddsock

            NEOGAF

        • IncognitosX

          Wait….there was a Shenmue II? … I stopped looking after the passing of the Dreamcast I guess.

    • Duke

      Gravity Rush 2 and Level-5′s next PS exclusive (fingers crossed for Dark Cloud 3) would do it for me.

      • Orichalon Hades

        >GR2
        >.HACK
        >Dark Cloud 3 ( i had the biggest crush on Monica btw)

        if they show up on TGS, i wud shed manly tears

        • Negi Springfield

          I`m still hoping for that Dark Chronicles and Arc The Lad announcement , Perhaps a remake or a sequel of Legend of Dragoon too….

          • PhantomVash808

            I would flip if they announced Legend of Dragoon 2.

      • Budgiecat

        Level 5 is working on Wonderdflick (much to my non excitement)

        • Giuseppe Nelva

          Level 5 is a big studio. They have 280 employees. They can work on multiple games.

          • Budgiecat

            so desu ne

            However I doubt they’ll announce 2 rpgs which would be cannablizing each other in sales and marketing hype and what not

          • Duke

            Go to their wiki page and just look at how many games they make ad release across multiple platforms at a time. Sony and Level-5 have a long history and good relationship, if Sony funds and produces the game. Level-5 have no issues.

          • Budgiecat

            thats besides the point. I’m talking about Level-5 making a JRPG for PS4 (Wonderflick) that would be competing against a Level-5 JRPG for PS4. Not gonna happen. they’ll focus on and distribute Wonderflick first…

    • MrSec84 .

      We’ve only really had Knack so far from SCEJ, Bloodborne would be a 0.5 announcement considering it’s a collaboration with SCEJ, yeah Tomorrow Children is another 0.5.
      SCEJ has over 400 staff, so they’re like the biggest studio Sony has, which includes Team Ico, supposedly still working on The Last Guardian.

      I’m betting Polyphony Digital will have something to either say or show for GT7, they’re also apparently thinking about developing something new, which was mentioned in a recent interview, they’ve also hired a load of new staff, expanding from like 190 people to 271, so they’re about as big as Guerrilla Games now.

      Lot’s of potential from Sony’s Japan 1st parties, they likely wanted to get the 2nd, 3rd party new announcement stuff done yesterday to focus on their own studios on the 17th.
      Should be exciting.

  • ipot_04

    Still haven’t heard anything interesting about Vita except for the 3.30 update.

  • Pigeon

    I hope Sony release details on a game worth getting excited about this time. Every announcement they’ve made regarding the PS4 has had me like–

    • Duke

      Funny enough, I have the same reaction with comments like these.

    • truthtellerdealwithit

      Its ok. We know you cant handle the Greatness. #10million

    • Lumego1

      Lol, that’s somewhat how I’ve felt about the announcements in general across the systems till Sony started streaming with games, games, games… :)

    • Budgiecat

      what would excite you? someone giving you a donkey punch?

    • cracken

      Why would a Sony hater get excited on Sony’s game?

      • Pigeon

        Currently playing Atelier Meruru on my PS Vita.

  • http://www.youtube.com/PathOfJioFreed Danny DeMent

    Well Kojima walked off stage without anything for MGS so I expect more at TGS then. Same for the games Bamco is working on.

  • foureyes oni

    i think i’m burnt out on my hopes for Sony regarding games i won’t even get my hopes up.

  • drzfr3shboialex

    Still waiting for beyond:two souls to be announced for ps4 and for QD’s new IP.

  • Christopher Gleeson

    Come on now peps – no matter how many times we hear this, we still all hope it will be one of the fabled three? My heart can’t take anymore of this :(

    • Kingdom17

      Fabled three?

    • MrSec84 .

      Oh what if Agent showed up, Rockstar made in collaboration with SCEJ, how awesome would that be?

      Besides TLG what would be the other game?

  • Anarky

    If it was anyone else I would take this with a grain of salt, but since it’s Shinobi I believe it.

  • superkarma

    Wow, that’s some prediction. Sony is going to announce new games at TGS? No way! Thanks for staying on top of things, NeoGAF “insiders”.

    • Kingdom17

      That’s what I was thinking, doesn’t take much to guess that we would get a few more announcements at the actual game show.

      • superkarma

        Yeah, it would be one thing if these “insiders” told us which games they supposedly knew would be announced. Nah, that would mean they could easily be proved wrong. Saying something ridiculously vague and predictable like this pretty much covers their ass, lol.

  • PrinceHeir

  • Faafeu Kapeneta

    Dark Chronicles @ TGS.

  • Spoonyrogdrumps

    Brohei Broshida already said TLG won’t be at TGS.

    • MrSec84 .

      Yoshida said he didn’t think it would be there, not that it definitely won’t be.
      Obviously that makes it pretty unlikely, but he has said that Sony has a time frame in mind for when they will, they’re just for that moment when they know it’s the game they want to show off.

      http://www.eurogamer.net/articles/2014-08-13-its-time-for-your-latest-update-on-the-last-guardian-again

      • Spoonyrogdrumps

        I suppose an “I don’t think so” could be looked at differently. He might have a lot on his plate so he may not know, but I would think he would know.
        It’s not like him or Sony for that matter to Troll the public.
        I really think people just need to let it go. Games that don’t come out are happening for a reason.
        The public just needs to let the game go.

  • MrSec84 .

    The Last Guardian may be unlikely after what Shu said, but that could be a bit of a fake out and as we all know, it’s well overdue.
    As Faefeu said below Dark Chronicles could be announced (it was re-trademarked back in April) and that could be Sony’s answer to The Legend of Zelda this generation.

    GT7 could be a likely prospect as Polyphony Digital have been talking about the game quite a bit lately.
    We may get gameplay and a release window, which after what was said back last September will probably be for 2015.

    My hopes definitely include seeing GT7, maybe something of a new platform style adventure game.
    Western release date for Guilty Gear Xrd would be cool.

    A Japan Studio made fast paced modern shooter (60FPS locked), good story mode, with cool online features, doesn’t have to be open world, but big, destructible environments and vehicles would be awesome.
    Something to show off some of the advanced physics PS4 is capable of.

    External HDD support to be added to v2.0 update, along with CD playback, music ripping to HDD with a variety of compression formats for in-game music in certain titles (like racing titles or games with radio stations).

  • Jerry Hu

    Why are always killing me, SONY!!!

  • TheGodlyGamer

    Of course their is going to be more game announcements from Sony. this was just a Pre show to get some of it out of the way for they can focus on their biggest announcements (that i hope get a western release) at Tokyo Game Show. :D

  • MNFNGamer

    Hopefully most of them hit state side

  • Mintos

    I hit for Gravity Rush 2 and a new Sony Japan Tittle also we haven’t saw anything from Atlus aside of Persona 5 they are a big Studio so they must have something to reveal soon and I still hope for TLG that’s something I just can’t stop believing

  • Хаотикс

    I thought its not a rumor but reality. Was there anyone who thought otherwise?
