Is Sony Planning Any Shocking Announcements For TGS 2012?
The Tokyo Game Show is this month and everyone is wondering if we'll see any super huge surprises.
Perhaps the most common question is whether or not Sony will show off the PlayStation 4. That seems exceedingly unlikely simply based on various company statements throughout 2012 but you never know, maybe they've just been playing possum this whole time. But beyond a PS4 unveiling, what else might Sony do to shock the crowd?
It's obvious that Gamescom was all about the Vita, as the portable enjoyed quite the monster showing. New software, PS3/Vita cross-platform compatibility, the firmware update that would deliver PS1 classics, etc. However, there was no mention of a price drop, which is the one thing consumers really seem to want. Although Sony boss Shuhei Yoshida has been quoted as saying it's still too early for a price cut, Vita sales have been lagging, so... But beyond that, it seems like Sony tackled the majority of new Vita news at Gamescom.
That mostly leaves the PS3, so perhaps we should look out for the following: A finalized release date for The Last Of Us, a PS3 price drop for the holidays (or a few bundle packages), and perhaps the unveiling of a next-gen project of some kind, without specifically mentioning any PS4 details. With so many developers apparently working on next-gen projects, it's going to be harder and harder to keep those games under wraps, especially when huge shows like TGS come around. So what do you think we'll see in a few weeks time?
