    Update

    The conference has now ended but you can watch the recorded version in English here: :arrow:here.

    For a full breakdown of the announcements check out the following spoiler box:
    Sony's TGS PRE-SHOW ANNOUNCEMENTS
    Original Post

    Hey, remember Sony's Tokyo Game Show press conference last year? If you don't, it was the conference with ton of Japanese game announcements such as Phantasy Star Nova, Natural Doctrine, Yakuza Ishin, Monster Hunter for Vita and PS3, Dangan Ronpa Another Episode, Gundum PS4, and of course, the PlayStation Vita TV (PlayStation TV in the west) which was basically a Vita that could be played on your TV.
    Now, Sony is preparing to bring us another conference on the first of September!
    If you don't know already, this year's conference will be all about the the PS4. No Vita or PS3, just PS4. Which makes sense since obviously PS4's sales are horrible in Japan and with the lack of appealing Japanese titles, it just makes the situation worse over there. So what do many of you expect?

    I would ponder whether Sony's conference would be better than Nintendo's directs but I think that would be similar to comparing the taste of dog shit to a basic service station sandwich.

    I'm kind of glad I haven't bought a Vita yet since it's starting to look like even Sony is letting its market collect dust. I did contemplate buying one at one point, but a lot of the games I want on it are already on other systems. The only games left that I want are Ys:M, SSD, and maybe DR2. None of those however, justify a purchase at the moment.

    I already got my entertainment's worth out of the PSVita and I still have some games I haven't tried or only played demos of, such as Future Wars or Ragnarok Odyssey: Ace, so I'm not too worried about the system. If they announce anything, great - if not, I can't blame them, the PS4 needs as much publicity as humanly possible if they want another PS2-level success. I suppose a localization of Phantasy Star Online 2 or Phantasy Star Nova would be nice, but I'm not expecting those as they're entirely up to SEGA. Some more info on Monster Hunter Frontier G would be great too.

    Why not releasing titles on both, Vita certainly needs more support, it needs a game that would be an instant hit.
    If they made a partnership with Capcom to release another Monster Hunter,
    or a partnership with Square Enix to release a new Dissidia Game, a new Kingdom Hearts game,
    a new Final Fantasy spin-off similar to Crisis Core or a remake of Final Fantasy 7 or Chrono Trigger.

    It's much harder (and more expensive) to convince developers to develop for a platform that's not selling well then one that sells better than cure for cancer. ;)

    Yes it is, but if they want to sell Vita they'll have to do something and those things I said could boost easily the Vita sales.

    It's not like they didn't try - they released a barrage of titles for it initially. We can't pretend Uncharted: Golden Abyss, KillZone: Mercenary, Soul Sacrifice, Gravity Rush, LittleBigPlanet Vita or Tearaway (which is now getting a PS4 version) never happened.

    But none of these titles is a system seller, if they want to sell Vita they need a game that would be an instant hit.

    What would you consider a system seller? Uncharted, KillZone and LittleBigPlanet are easily three of the most recognizable Sony IP's, the only thing that's missing is an exclusive God of War title or a portable The Last of Us. I'll take any PSVita criticism to heart, but I'll never agree that the system didn't get a barrage of quality first-party titles - Sony gave it its best franchises and even invented some new IP's, there's only so much push they can give a system and that snowball just wasn't rolling the way they imagined.

    A PSV Infamous game would have definitely been great IMO.

    As for the press conference: Probably mostly stuff that we'll never see over here considering it's by SCEJA, so eh.

    The only thing preventing me from buying a PS4 is the lack of Turn-Based RPGs.....
    No ManĀ“s Sky/Bloodborne looks awesome though.
    I hope they show something like Kingdom Hearts or Final Fantasy.
