Playstation Meeting Waiting Room

#1 Edited by Azurath (305 posts) -

It's almost time folks!

What is turning out to be the most (over?) hyped gaming event of the last few years is upon us.

How/Where will you be watching the event? I sadly have gone over my data cap, so it looks like I need to watch at the library...

Might as well throw in predictions for the event, too:

Gran Turismo, Uncharted HD, Ratchet and Clank, maybe three new Vita games, and then Gaiki talk for about a half hour. I feel the HD collection will be perfect because side by side shots of how much better games can look on the machine compared to its predecessor is going to be a big selling point. I also wouldn't be too surprised if we see a PS4 + Vita bundle announced.

@damisterchief: Sadly, I have to agree. While I love my Vita, no one seems to want it bad enough to drop the money for it.

Packaging it in would be a great way to move software, and make developers more interested.

Gran Turismo 6 prologue with rear view mirror on the Vita or no deal.

Can't wait for this!

Oh man, I'm stuck doing group work for class for like 3 more hours... ugh

#9 Posted by Grilledcheez (3947 posts) -

It's a shame they are waiting to have it during my only class of the day!

#10 Edited by TyCobb (1972 posts) -

I hope it goes smooth and doesn't run too long. I have a meeting an hour and half after it starts (if it starts on time).

That was my first thought. I do not approve of this topic since it blatantly ignores an age old tradition. Boo I say, boo.

You know what to do then. Set your priorities straight!

Also, AHHHHHH PLAYSTATION!

@zaccheus: Sorry, I'm still rather new here, you're going to have to elaborate.

@tycobb: Apparently my library is only open for about a hour and a half after the start time. It would really suck to have to stop watching mid-way through it.

@zaccheus: Oh god, I'm sorry!

Mods change my title, somebody do something while there is still time!

I actually didn't even notice that typo, and I have been in the most current Bombcast Watiting Room multiple times.

I think that's really the beauty of it.

Packaging a Vita in with the PS4 would definitely improve my chances of buying it. I already have a dozen games to play on it thanks to PS+

#20 Posted by FluxWaveZ (19339 posts) -

I've been waiting for this.

#21 Posted by Winternet (8018 posts) -

They should open early. Like now early.

#22 Posted by Dauthi693 (130 posts) -

Woot thread name change ftw.

Got your wish, the topic is saved.

I'm pretty excited. I think I'm going to suffer through it even though the "meeting" starts at 2 am my time. Never seen a console launch live. Well the Wii U maybe, but you know...

#24 Posted by Funkydupe (3318 posts) -

If it doesn't have at least six cores I'll cry.

don't worry i don't think the GPU will be that under powered :P j/k
Is this conference is overhyped? Yes
Do I care? No
I just want to scratch that upgrade itch.

#26 Posted by Tarsier (1064 posts) -

lets all pray for the next 3 hours straight that this isnt some touch screen motion control gimmick bullshit

#27 Posted by Getz (3007 posts) -

I know it's not very likely, but it's going to be soooo funny if this turns out to not be about Playstation 4. They way every news outlet is gearing up with Playstation retrospectives and hype makes it ripe for delicious irony.

#28 Edited by 49th (2756 posts) -

I'm so excited! The idea for the controller seems pretty nice so I'm curious to see what they do with it, also I think the share button or whatever is really cool.

That will part of the fun watching every ones reaction especially on top of Bungies *cough cough* reveal of Destiny

Could happen. :) But I doubt it, hehe. Sony has been reserving Playstation 4 cloud domains like madmen lately.

#31 Posted by SMTfan123 (9 posts) -

I'm really excited for this. I really really hope this is a PS4 announcement, though...

Also, I'm waiting for that PSN $10 "loyalty" credit still. Do I need to own a PS3 or a PS Vita for it (I own just a PSP)?

#32 Edited by Branwulf (406 posts) -

Are they streaming it here along with a live show?

#33 Posted by MachoFantastico (4684 posts) -

Excited, don't care if I'm disappointed. The simple fact that it as me excited in the first place is enough, after last years E3 which felt stale, dead and a clear indication how desperate we were for something fresh and new.

#34 Posted by TheManWithNoPlan (5490 posts) -

My prediction is?..... It's gonna be the new PLAYSTATION ya'll!!!

I just hope they don't pad it out with something wholly uninteresting, al la Wonderbook, instead of what we're actually watching for.

#35 Posted by Funkydupe (3318 posts) -

I just want it to have hardware that shows that they intend for it to be around for a while. There's been some concerns on the memory side but what the hell do we know, really.

I think you might have to double stream it. There is probably some legal bullshit that might prevent the crew from broadcasting it. Let's hope that's not the case.

#37 Posted by Azurath (305 posts) -

@zaccheus: I am glad I can change thread title names, that was a close one.

Just out of curiosity, how many of us here have a Vita already? Someone at Sony said earlier today that they are going for a huge Vita push this year, specifically regarding software. If this event focuses even 15 minutes on Vita, I would be super happy.

#38 Posted by SMTfan123 (9 posts) -

Oh, what is everyone doing while they're waiting for the stream? I'm just playing some Corpse Party.

#39 Posted by Funkydupe (3318 posts) -

@zaccheus: Its listed on the front page schedule as a Live Show, so I'm hoping for both video stream+chat.

#40 Posted by SMTfan123 (9 posts) -

@azurath: Nah, I don't have a Vita. I got a 3DS instead. But the Vita has P4G, so that's pretty cool.

Also, did anyone else get the $10 credit? I don't know how to check if I got it, as the PSP doesn't have an "inbox" or something... :(

#41 Posted by Zaccheus (1793 posts) -

I mean they are going to be shooting themselves watching the stream, I hope they can just overlay the Sony stream but you never know.

#42 Posted by JoshS (415 posts) -

My only hope is to hear what they are doing with PSN. I want to know if it will remain free to play online. I personally only play games online maybe two weekends out of the year. I don't see a point in paying for a service that I use for four days, and never for the other 361 of the year.

That is almost entirely my deciding factor this coming console generation. The current generation, I got a 360, and was a Live subscriber for several years. These days, I don't have time for it, but there are rare occasions where a friend or family member from a different state ask if I want to play a game with them.

One can only hope they don't turn PSPlus into a requirement to play online.

#43 Posted by Funkydupe (3318 posts) -

@zaccheus: Why would Sony want to limit the stream in any way? Sounds counterproductive for an announcement event.

#44 Edited by Scroll (598 posts) -

I don't see why they wouldn't have the stream, most other places are hosting the live stream as well.

#45 Posted by Morbid_Coffee (955 posts) -

Look forward to graphs. Lots of graphs. About two hours of graphs. An hour and a half of it talking about sales numbers.

Then maybe a new system or something, I dunno. It'll look like a parabola or some shit.

#46 Edited by PillClinton (3291 posts) -

Kingdom Hearts and FF X through XII (minus XI) HD collections.

*Puts my hand up* I have a Vita, love it, and equivalently don't want to see a single second of Vita news tonight.

I just want PS4 all over my everything - I will rue any time not spent upon it at the conference.

#48 Edited by Azurath (305 posts) -

@smtfan123: The $10 is for PS3 owners only I believe, sorry.

#49 Edited by SMTfan123 (9 posts) -

@azurath: Augh, that's utter crap...I guess my thought of random members getting it was wrong >:(

And I was planning on getting Parasite Eve, too :'(

#50 Edited by thegoldencat7 (1497 posts) -

So exciting. I've never seen a console launch live before. Think I might watch it in PSHome for the sake of novelty.
