Sony Gamescom Press Conference Recap

After being about 10 minutes late, the Sony press conference finally started.  Boy did they have a lot to cover. The Vita and it”s expensive proprietary memory cards got a price cut. They announced so many exclusive debuts for both the Vita and PS4, that I no longer know which way is up.

They also covered the long awaited release date of the Playstation 4, which will be arriving in Australia and Europe on November 29th, as confirmed by the retail listings on EB Games shortly after.

But instead of reading through Paragraph after Paragraph of what was announced, here is a handy dandy Bullet point list.

  • Tons of Indie Games coming to the PS4 and Vita
    (Such As Hotline Miami 2, N , The Binding of Issac: Rebirth and more. Full list )
