Well, this was cute. It's not really a game or anything to look forward to in the future, but after sitting through the conference for a while it was kind of nice to listen to something other than big words and sales talk. It's certainly nothing all too impressive, though...I could see this technology maybe being used for minigames, but that's about it. Oh well. Does it remind anybody else of Wii Music?


Square's been catching a lot of flak for withholding titles recently. Between Final Fantasy Versus XIII and Kingdom Hearts III, most of their fanbase is a little peeved. Tonight's certainly not going to help at all; aside from vaguely announcing that there would be a Final Fantasy for the PS4 (no duh) Square showed a tech demo to showcase their abilities with the new console. Unfortunately, it's just a tuned-up version of Agni's Prophecy, a tech demo they showed less than a year ago. Classy, Square. Taking the laziest way out as possible again.

When Capcom took the stage, many were expecting to see something regarding Monster Hunter; however, we received something entirely unexpected instead. The major studio is launching a new Dragon's Dogma, called Deep Down, and showed us a snazzy new trailer right off the bat. Only time will tell if this succeeds, but Capcom could sure use a good title right now to help curry favor with its somewhat disappointed fanbase.

InFamous, by Sly Cooper studio Sucker Punch, is one of Sony's most popular exclusives in recent years; after the events of InFamous 2, many were curious if we'd see another installment in the series. Well, today those questions were answered, with a trailer showing us a new protagonist and a decidedly more political slant. Looks like Second Son is going to feature a lot of destruction; something that gamers can't get enough of.

Quantic Dream is known for pushing boundaries with their games; heck, the efforts they put into Heavy Rain is proof enough. Still, there was a very clear line between their game and reality, caused by the limits of technology at the time. However, David Cage shows us that with Sony's new console, their ability to showcase emotion has improved vastly. It's hard for me to find complaints about the demo above, and it'll only get better as they learn to use the system more effectively.

At today's PlayStation meeting, Ubisoft displayed Watch Dogs for PlayStation 4. The game appears to be heavily inspired by the Assassin's Creed franchise in style and gameplay, but it features a modern, cyberconnected world and a story taking place in the lovely city of Chicago. Check out the action-packed trailer to see stealth, chase sequences, and exploding trains! What's equally exciting is that the end of the trailer confirms rumors that Watch Dogs is coming to the Wii U, in the form of a cute little logo at the bottom of the screen. Keep your eyes peeled for more Watch Dogs information as it comes!

Knack is one of the most original titles showcased at Sony's PlayStation meeting tonight and one of the more interesting concepts we've seen in quite a while. Knack features a little robot aiding a human army against alien invaders. Knack himself seems to be made out of some sort of stone and can grow and shrink his body with more material present. You can catch the full trailer here. It's going to be exciting to see how the release of this game plays out — I know it's on my watch list.

At tonight's PlayStation meeting, we received news of a new racing game called Drive Club, which focuses on highly detailed models, team-based gameplay, and smartphone integration. You can click here for more information or check out the full trailer for the stunning game above.

At tonight's PlayStation meeting, we saw several game trailers alongside the reveal of Sony's PlayStation 4. One such game trailer is for Killzone: Shadow Fall. First we see a cinematic of the futuristic city in which the game takes place, and then we have a hefty load of gameplay. You can check out the gorgeous trailer above and let us know what you think in the comments.

At the end of the PlayStation 4 meeting, after a quick video recap of all the announced games, Sony revealed that the PlayStation 4 will be available "Holiday 2013." When, exactly, this means is unclear, but at least we vaguely know it should be available in time for Santa to wrap a nice one up and tuck it under the tree, menorah, festivus pole, or other holiday symbol of choice. It's not exactly a surprise, but it's nice to have confirmation that the PlayStation 4 will be available by the end of this year. As we get closer to the holiday season, we'll naturally hear more exact details, so stay tuned!

Blizzard Entertainment has historically been very close with the PC gaming market, but tonight, Blizzard and Sony have come together to announce a partnership through which they will "take over the world." Not only is Diablo III coming to PlayStation 3 and PlayStation 4, but Blizzard will likely continue this partnership in the future. Having Blizzard's titles on only their consoles is going to be a huge boon to Sony's stance in the console wars, assuming the partnership is exclusive to Sony and PCs, as implied. I wonder how this could play out.

We saw a new trailer for Watch Dogs on the PS4 tonight, and this one was definitely more action-oriented. We saw a chase scene and a lot of parkour, and it was very, very pretty. It's shaping up to be a Cyber-Assassin's Creed in Chicago, and if you're a fan of Ubisoft's other titles this just might be one of their most tightly crafted.

At tonight's PlayStation meeting, Square Enix revealed that they are working on a Final Fantasy title for PlayStation 4. Whether it's a remake, spin-off, or a completely new game is not yet announced, but let's hope that they can bring us a high-quality Final Fantasy experience like they did in the good old days. More information will be revealed at E3, so be patient, everybody.

Above is the list of developers working on games for the PS4; basically every big-time developer is seen, along with many smaller companies. Not much in the way of exclusive developers, but it's still a massive list, and we'll be seeing a lot of games coming Sony's way at this rate.

Square Enix has been closely tied with Sony and the PlayStation brand since Final Fantasy VII was released sixteen years ago for Sony's first console. Tonight, Yoshihisa Hashimoto, CTO of Square Enix, has come to the stage to discuss their support of the upcoming PlayStation 4. They reveal a trailer running in real time, beginning in a desert with terrain and garb that looks almost biblical if not for the vans and electrical shocks. The same trailer was shown last year as a PC tech demo, but now we see it running just the same on PlayStation 4. It's unclear yet whether or not this is a new game or merely a tech demo of Square's new engine, but it looks exciting. Did you catch the trailer in the stream? What did you think?
