    Got to put in mind not everything comes out of the conference's, some release little news after the show including game trailer's & screens that wernt mentioned during that show, like Driveclub screens - looking stunning I must say, Killzone:SF screens also look awesome an announced after the show the DLC maps are free, an news that PSN+ will cost $6.99/5.99 a month. ect ect there days left to go yet I assume more will come out during there time there I believe.

    PS4 Interface = Raises Eyebrows

    Indies = Cool

    Playroom = Falls Asleep

    Vita = Yawn's

    PS3 Games GT6, GTAV, BTS = Great

    PS4 Games = Seen them Before ffs, Where's My Fav AAA games???

    Minecraft - Spills coffee...................................... naa not really its not for me tbh but good for fans :P

    Release Date = Smiles at last

    I have to admit it was pretty boring. But they answered my #1 concern which was release date so I'm happy

    I don't know about boring. To me (NFL threaders will relate to this) it was like the Patriots offense - efficient, paced, short & quick plays but results in lengthy drives due to the amount of plays (announcements) run. In the end, it got the message across, not flashy, but does the job.

    #IndieStation4 and proud of it.

    I got my date and a tonne of cross buy games, borderlands 2 Vita got quite the reaction.
    I think PS4 has a decent enough line up, now it just needs to release.

    Rime, rapture and shadow of the beast looked good. Bunch of indies and theres still SCE presentation on 9/9 and the tokyo game show to go.
    Its still the cheaper, stronger machine. Releasing in more countries, more preorders. And all its features arent behind paying subcription like xbox. Only online gaming. Stream, multi media, browser and movies arent behind paywall.

    Xbox has been doing 180's and catch up the whole time and how can you trust them after the drm and get a 360 for offline gaming. Plus they wanted to force you with kennect. How much changes are they making to sort all this out? Its not even playable out the box offline, needs an update lol

    I hope a couple more games will be announced for vita at 9/9 and TGS. Theres still that non port, non indie game shahid mentioned on twitter.
    But after the price drops and few games, im definitely picking one up at ps4 launch. Remote play will be good too

    I thought it was decent, but like. SO many indie/PSN games. I know they are important and fun and all but they aren't what is going to ship units

    Yes, that's my take on it all too. Indies and retro style games aren't the type of games that will ship units. Now, before it's released they need to show more impressive titles, titles that show what the PS4 is capable of.

    Disappointed with both press conference from Sony and Microsoft. Where are all the exclusives they promised us?

    People should not have expected much for a launch as launches never have the best o most exciting games. Also MS did not announce any block busters either. I would love if Uncharted 4 could have been a launch game but we all knew that would not happen. Also most people will buy watch dogs, cod and assassins creed anyway so what difference will it make?

    Tell that to the people who are preordering the PS4 making it stay in the top 10 on amazon and other retailers. This is better then he ps1, ps2 and ps3 line up by far and TGS has not even happened.

    I'm probably nit-picking but i really didn't like the start how there was nothing but a guy sitting in a chair facing away from the crowd, playing the PS4 for a while. Don't know what they were trying to do but i found it highly rude.

    And the upbeat, latest hits music to introduce the speakers only to have them talk in monotonous tones. Really killed the energy the built up.

    I skipped through a lot. Just didn't do anything for me.

    Probably the Samsung Galaxy S4 reveal was the first one in a while that has actually made my private parts twitch.

    I know, two different platforms.

    Agreed, the only interesting things were the Vita price reduction and the Vita + games bundles, and the PS4 release date

    I know it's great supporting the little guys but indie games put me off. And indie movies while we are on the topic.

    This conference is not about pleasing you by announcing new games that you like. It's to inform the world about what the company is doing, how things are standing, etc.

    You found it rude? Why? They just wanted to create some mystery about who was playing and what was going on. I actually quite liked it.


    I think it's great they showed indie titles. Seriously, you will get your AAA titles and these titles will get enough publicitiy by themselves, two things that can't always be said of indie titles.

    Pshh Sony has had so many events this year and still have more to come. By god they can't come out swinging on each one. I think it was a perfect blend of indie, Vita, and PS4! I can't wait to see TGS. I'm not saying it wasn't boring, however, when Sony showed off the Ps4 they didn't have to do that event. That was a bonus for us, the fans,I think they did more this year than any other launch. I'm proud of Sony.

    Remember that i'm going to die is the best way I know to avoid trap of thinking you have something to lose, you're already naked, there's no reason not to follow your heart.

    In a way, boring isn't really the worst outcome. They didn't have any BAD news, so in that sense, I don't know why OP claims that Sony wants to hand a victory to MS. One could almost say they played their conference conservatively in order to not hand MS any ammo going into TGS.

    What they did do, was not turn their backs on the Vita. Not only are there a lot of games coming to it, they lowered the price and (more importantly to me and just about every other current owner and would-be owner) they lowered the price on the memory cards. A Vita costs as much as a 3DS now. That's going to help momentum a bit.

    On the PS4 side of things, KillZone multiplayer looks better than anything on any other console, so there was some serious delivery there. 1 million units pre-sold and they had to stop taking preorders and demand is still out-stripping production. A grab-bag of online feature support to kick off the generation in the face of the Swiss Army entertainment competition. Then, as if on que, an AMD spokesman let loose the news that PS4 has hUMA support while XBone does not. Overall, if the conference was boring, the news coming out of GamesCom is anything but!

    Next year's Gamescom will probably be more interesting anyway, as that's when they really show the future for PS4 and gaming.
