@darji: Wow, that game actually looks pretty interesting.

Also....I don't mean the be " that guy ", but I remember the first trailer they released for this game looking kind of a lot better than that one graphically speaking.

The tech demo? Yeah but this is still early footage So I bet they will come to this graphical level or at least close to that.

Is there a stream with subtitles or a translator, like the last time?

No this is "just a launch event. not a press conference. If you are lucky someone will announce a game but I doubt it.

edit: This fake clapping is kind of awesome xD

Is this just going to be mostly a montage of tarento telling people how much they love the Playstation platform?

'Cuz that's what it's looking like at the moment.

Yeah, there's probably not gonna be anything other than that and a couple demos of games that were already released here. I'm still slightly hopeful for something FFXV related, though.

The event will feature a number of notable guests, who will touch upon the appeal of PlayStation 4 with gameplay exhibits and video letters. Guests include:

  • Hideo Kojima (Metal Gear Solid V director, game designer, and producer)
  • Shinji Hashimoto (Final Fantasy XV and Kingdom Hearts III producer)
  • Naoki Yoshida (Final Fantasy XIV: A Realm Reborn producer and director)
  • Toshiro Nagoshi (Yakuza series general director)
  • Mayuko Kawakita (female model)
  • Viking (comedian)

But do not expect anything big or new. It is just a launch event.

Hashimoto, the producer for both FFXV and KH3 is listed as one of the event guests at least, so can always hope!
