I'm guessing you were missing out on Jeff Gerstmann on Giant Bomb for the past few days since he's been in New York. He defected to Rev3 Games...no wait.

Jeff Gerstmann of Giantbomb (and guest of Good Morning America) got to talk with Adam Sessler (former G4TV) and Chris Morris (Variety) about all things PS4. Adam Sessler already appeared on the bombcast, and if you follow game coverage, you'll need no introduction to his bald head and mutton chops.

I wonder if they will wait till April or if Microsoft already has some sort of event in the works?

Adam Sessler's voice is nails-on-a-blackboard to my ears. Still, great video!

Oh cool, thanks for the link.

It would've been cool to see a video with Jeff and Alex talk about the announcements after the conference but I guess their opinions are sufficiently expressed in the video above and Alex's write up.

I believe there's decent reason to think that they already have an event planned. Something sooner than E3. These things take time to come up with, and so, an announcement isn't just going to pop up. They may be adjusting plans or even the date a bit, but it's most-likely already well on its way to happening.

I'd say April at the latest, considering they are probably going to be launching first in the Fall; so, some combination of purposeful leaks starting later this week and an announcement of an event to overshadow Sony's time in the sun is likely.

I'd be surprised if there isn't a special bombcast going up shortly. As far as I'm concerned, yesterday was more exciting than last year's E3.

Neat video by the way. I was in the mood for just that.

I really prefer Adam now that he can drop his G4 type persona. He is much better when he isnt forcing joke out every few seconds.

Jeff does really well on camera, again.

Big Jeffery seems optimistic about PS4.

Which is weird considering how cynical he is, but he's been starved for this stuff for a while.

It's been mentioned enough that I suspect Microsoft or other industry types who would know, have a late april event planned for the Durango reveal. Say these things enough times and they usually come true. If they waited until E3 people would start questioning their strategy.

#21 Posted by ImmortalSaiyan (4676 posts) -

I want to see what Microsoft has to compete so bad. It best not take until E3.

Judging from twitter, Sony was speaking his language with what they were announcing. If it all comes together next gen will be pretty exciting.

No question, this blew E3 2012 out of the fucking water.

If the PS4 run turns out to be even half as good as the 10 years of PS2, next gen is going to be amazing.

Doesn't get much better than Gertsmann and the Sess together. And holy shit Jeff is tall. Can't really get a sense for how tall that dude is from Jar Time I guess.

Hardware announcements are always more exciting that anything else. So no surprise this was better than last E3.

Wow...Jeff is very tall.

The PS4 is gonna rock, I was completely wow'd by the conference.

#32 Posted by GalacticGravy (545 posts) -

Really like where Sessler's been lately. I have to admit that I never saw X-Play as "real" gaming news/review outlet. Maybe I'm just skeptical of things on TV. It was unfair of me to write him off as just some talking head with an Xbox controller. I enjoy Sessler's...Something on rev3 a lot.
