Anything Else? Sony Set to Make PS4 Tokyo Game Show Keynote
PlayStation Vita TV appeared out of thin air, and now gamers are wondering if Sony has any other tricks up its sleeves. Starting tonight (September 18) we’ll find out.
Sony is set to make the opening keynote to kick off the 2013 Tokyo Game Show with a presentation titled, “Life with PlayStation 4.” And even if tonight’s address is The Last Guardian- and virtual reality-free, well, there’s always tomorrow. Sony has a second TGS presser scheduled for September 19, “The World Created by PlayStation 4.”
Tonight’s presentation is set to begin at 9 p.m. Eastern (6 p.m. Pacific) and it will be live-streamed via Nico Nico. Sony notes that tonight’s presser will be catered to Asian territories, so it’s unclear if that stream will include an English translation. Tomorrow, though, is a different story, and that’s when we’re likely to see anything new.
SCE president and group CEO Andrew House will lead “The World Created by PlayStation 4″ address, and here is how it’s billed by Sony: “PlayStation 4 is the next generation computer entertainment system which will be released by Sony Computer Entertainment towards the end of this year, 2013. Detailed specification of this latest system and its exclusive software titles and the new gaming experience that can be realized with the PlayStation 4 platform will be introduced together with the latest information.” This presser starts at 9 p.m. EST tomorrow and will also be live-streamed by Nico Nico.
Aside from sharing secrets, TGS is the last chance for Sony to make a formal pitch for the PlayStation 4 ahead of the console’s November 15 release. Microsoft has tweaked its product and its message quite a bit since its controversial Xbox One presser in May and its E3 presser in June. We’ll find out exactly how Sony plans to counter it starting tonight.
