Sony’s Paris Games Week event to reveal SEVEN “all-new game announcements”
Sony’s Paris Games Week event to reveal SEVEN “all-new game announcements”:- Sony’s Paris Games Week showing is just around the corner, and today the publisher has announced that it has a few surprise announcements to make.
Sony Interactive Entertainment’s Paris Games Week 2017 PlayStation Media Showcase – which is due to kick off at 5pm UK time on October 30 – will host “an exclusive look at the next wave of huge PlayStation titles,” according to a new PlayStation Blog post.
However, before the main show kicks off, Sony has announced that a smaller introductory livestream that will announce SEVEN new games for PS4 and PS VR.
“We’ll begin with an introductory livestream featuring 21 game updates, including seven all-new game announcements for PS4 and PS VR. You won’t want to miss it,” reads the blog.
According to an accompanying tweet, the official PlayStation Twitter account teases that, “E3 was only half the story.”
However, it’s the sub-header for the blog post that’s got everyone talking. With Sony promising “big new game announcements” at the event.
Hopefully, that’s some proper big game announcements and not the disappointing ‘exclusive’ announcements Microsoft bored us all with at Gamescom.
Here’s the full announcement:
“On 30th October, starting at 3.00pm GMT/4.00pm CET, PlayStation Live From Paris Games Week 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 look at some spectacular new games coming to PS4 and PS VR.
“And stick around after the Showcase – we’ll have further details and info to share in our post-show debrief.
“Here’s the best part: you can watch all the fun from the comfort of your home, office or… home office, via playstation.com/pgw, Twitch, YouTube, and Facebook.”
We’ll find out more next week.
We know Sony has got something BIG in the pipeline to show off this Winter, based on comments Sony Worldwide Studios boss Shuhei Yoshida made earlier this year.
Yoshida previously said Sony chose not to reveal some triple AAA games at E3 2017 as they were saving them for later.
Speaking in June, the Sony Boss said: “There are things we have held [back], Yoshida said. “We chose not to show those at E3 2017, but there will be some more news coming out from our teams later this year. No question.”
Sony could be saving an announcement on the Final Fantasy 7 Remake for PSX so they end 2017 on a high note and set things up for a great 2018.
