Originally, my plan was to do what I’ve done the last couple of year and treat the PlayStation conference as something that I do a write-up for and a video page. This year, though, things changed. First and foremost, Sony paradoxically shifted attendees between venues to change the mood, which resulted in a panel of people buying time as they shifted. Couple this with streaming woes across Twitch (it went offline at one point) and YouTube (shoddy sound) as well as a lack of Sony flexing the quantity of its quality exclusive titles, and the PlayStation conference wasn’t its usual highlight. That said, there were still some strong entries to like. Scroll on to check them all out.
You can check out the full conference below, but mind the lengthy gap during that aforementioned venue change.
After what feels like an eternity of waiting, Sony didn’t disappoint when it came time to show off the first ever gameplay for The Last of Us Part II, which mixes intimacy with savagery.
PlayStation owners are getting what hopefully amounts to timed exclusive access to some of the best Black Ops multiplayer maps in Call of Duty: Black Ops IV.
A story trailer for Destiny 2: Forsaken was also revealed during the venue shift.
Sadly, this epic-looking Ghost of Tsushima won’t be making its way to PC screens.
Unlike Ghost of Tsushima, Remedy Entertainment’s next game, Control, isn’t exclusive to PS4, even if it was showcased at the PlayStation conference.
It’s the same dealio for the Resident Evil 2 remake. Considering I missed a bunch of the earlier Resi games, I’m hella keen to take this for a spin on PC when it launches 25 January 2019.
The very Rick & Morty-esque Trover Saves the Universe is coming to PlayStation VR (fingers crossed it’s a timed exclusive).
Just when you thought Kingdom Hearts III was all Disney’d out, along comes the Pirates of the Caribbean.
This Death Stranding trailer won’t answer any of your questions as it expertly shifts between walking and mind-bending simulator.
Nioh 2 is coming, even if this video doesn’t reveal much more than that.
Last but not least, Marvel’s Spider-Man, an exclusive Sony affair, expertly splices the best of Batman: Arkham with the pace of Spidey in this action-packed gameplay trailer.
And that’s it for the PlayStation conference. I’ll be writing up coverage for whatever Nintendo reveals tomorrow but, in the meantime, if you’re still hanging out for more E3 coverage, jump over to this ultra-convenient hub page.
