PlayStation Experience Keynote - A Round Up

The PlayStation Experience kicked off with a keynote that lasted 90 minutes and there is certainly plenty to tell you about.

Before the show even started the sign up's for the closed beta of Planetside 2 on PS4 went live. So sign up here.

As for the conference, Sony kicked off by showing a video of gamers who play PlayStation, be it dedicated gamers to casual gamers, before showing us a montage of games from Mortal Kombat to Tearaway, Batman, Metal Gear Solid, The Order and more. It also showed a number shooting up towards 15 million.

Shawn Layden came on to the stage wearing a God of War T-Shirt, telling us that the PS4 is the fastest selling console ever, though didn't confirm the sales number.

So on to the games and Uncharted 4 which looks quite incredible. The video showed Nathan Drake looking around before heading into a cave, putting on his torch and showing us what the PS4 is made off with impressive water tech, lighting and just about everything really. We'll let you watch the video below and see for yourself.

Next up was San Diego Studio who showed us a little of MLB The Show 15, not such a huge game in the UK and Europe, but the small teaser we did see looked great.

A new game was announced from the same studio. It's called Killstrain and is a top down free-to-play title. It's fast paced, highly addictive and a 5v2v5 team structure game. It'll be on show at the show floor in a pre-alpha state.

You can sign up for the beta at killstrain.com and it'll launch next year. The studio also has another title which it says it'll talk about soon.

Bloodborne was next up, showing off the new procedurally created dungeons. The dungeon shown had three levels, filled with tricks, traps and plenty of variety. Everything about the game just looks incredible. It may be a little tough for some, but by the looks of things you may just want to buy it to look at it anyway.

Adam Boyes came on the stage next, telling people all about the show and everything there is to play together. He then talked about Destiny, the exclusive content that'll come with the new DLC, The Dark Below and he hoped that he'd finally get past level 29.

Next there was an sneak peak of the Undying Mind Strike which is exclusive to PlayStation. Check it out below.

Ultra Street Fighter IV is debuting exclusively on PS4 this spring for the first time on console, although there was no mention of any other Street Fighter at this point in the conference.

Killing Floor 2 was next to be announced, once again coming first to PlayStation.

This was quickly followed by Darkest Dungeon, another PlayStation exclusive and The Forest, which is also making its debut on PS4.

Moving on to PS Vita, we also found out that Geometry Wars 3 is coming to the handheld this Spring, Persona 5 is coming day and date with the Japanese version, meaning we don't have to wait long and Bastion is also on the way. 

Orcs Must Die has also been confirmed for release.

Peter Moore of EA was next to say that you can get free copies of NFS: Most Wanted for PS Vita, Mirror's Edge for PS3 and Plant's vs Zombies: Garden Warfare for PS4. All for free until tomorrow night at midnight.

More new games next such as Enter the Gungeon, Shovel Knight (with Kratos), Dungeon Defenders 2, Skytorn and lastly Severed for PS Vita.

Batman: Arkham Knight was next up, giving us a look a the final part in the Batman Arkham series of videos that we have posted over the last few weeks. There was also a look at the exclusive content which is being released for PlayStation.

Street Fighter V was finally confirmed, yes it's console exclusive to PlayStation. Here's the video.

Yoshi OnoChin confirmed the news, saying the game is exclusive to PS4 and PC. It'll have cross-platform play between PS4 and PC. Sony confirmed it's total console exclusivity as both studios have been working together on development. 

Next up we found out that Sony is bringing a title from its building the list campaign. Yakuza 4, Yakuza Dead Souls and Yakuza 5 will all come to PS3 in the West. In fact the latter two are available today.

The Vita also got some love. Suikoden 1&2 are coming to the Platform and PS Vita. Towerfall Ascension is also coming to PS Vita, as is a new expansion pack. Octodad is also coming to PS Vita. Supertime Force Ultra is coming to PS4 and PS Vita too and Shuhei Yoshida is a playable character in it. Awesome.

Continuing the games on Vita, The Banner Saga is coming and finally Resident Evil: Revelations 2 is coming to PS Vita.

Gang Beasts was also announced. It's a fantastic little game which we have already had hands on with thanks to it being playable at Develop. It is so good. Keep an eye on that one.

Tim Schafer was next on stage to tell us that Broken Age is coming to PS4 and PS Vita, with act 2 hitting day on date with the PC version.

Grim Fandango was also talked about and given a date of January 27th, exciting.

So what else are Double Fine remaking? Day of The Tentacle: Special Edition, which is coming to PS4 and PS Vita.

Studio Santa Monica was next up to tell us about four new games. So what was the first? Fat Princess Adventure, a new game in the series for PS4. It looks pretty cute and the first game was a lot of fun. 

Next up was a new game from Funomena, the guy behind Katamari Damacy and Noby Noby Boy. The game is called Wattam. Here it is.

Giant Sparrow showed off their new game next, showing off a new title, What Remains of Edith Finch. It's a collection of four stories and looks quite interesting.

Here's the trailer.

The Order 1886 was next up, opening with the trailer we saw last night at The Game Awards. New gameplay footage was also shown, showing behind cover fire and some close range combat.

It looks pretty great to us, but judge for yourself in the video below. 

Media Molecule was up next, showing us Tearaway Unfolded. It's essentially the PS Vita version remade with new controls and features for the PS4.

Until Dawn was next up. It looks very scary. One minute a poor lady was in the bath and the next, well I'm not sure we want to say. It's pretty frightening stuff.. run Samantha, run.

Metagon time? 

Final Fantasy VII is coming PlayStation 4, but how, what? You're joking right? Well sort of, it's a port of the PC version. Oh well.

Oh well, nevermind, here's a video celebrating 20 years of PlayStation.

No Man's Sky was next up. The game still looks incredible and Shawn Murray of Hello Games was as humble as ever. He looked delighted to be on the stage as he was discussing the game, telling us how everyone starts on the edge of the galaxy, with the aim to explore the huge universe.

A new video was also shown. Check it out.

PlayStation 4 exclusive Drawn to Death, from David Jaffe's studio looks different. You seem to be in a colourless world, well apart from your equipment, explosions and blood of course. Check out more below because it's easier to understand when you see it.

And that was it.

What do you think? There sure was plenty of games shown.

Presuming final fantasy will have trophies. Is suikoden coming out over here it wasn't very clear sounded a bit like it was just the U.S.

The best announcement by far is Yakuza 5. I wish I watched it now so I could have gotten that info first hand

I wont hold my breath for Suikoden being released here but it would be nice. Uncharted looks nice but it is what I was expecting. A couple of the indie games look quite nice, still dont know how I feel about the horror game though I want it to be good but will wait and see. The one thing I don't understand is why the internet isn't losing their minds over Street Fighter being exclusive like they did Tomb Raider.

Plants Vs Zombies being free is nice - after playing it for a few hours I believe this should have always been a F2P game - its multiplayer only with unlock cards which could (dont think they are at the moment) have been microtransactions like in Mass effect 3. Fun game - but multiplayer only with no story :(
