PlayStation Experience was my favorite convention of the year photo
PlayStation Experience was my favorite convention of the year
by Brett Makedonski

I've been to a lot of videogame conventions this year. From the relatively small BitSummit to the monstrosity that is gamescom, I've pretty much seen them all. I didn't think this past weekend's trip to Las Vegas would result in me saying this, but for better and for worse, I think Sony's PlayStation Experience was my favorite convention of the year.

Part of what makes that so surprising is that the event itself was surprising. Nobody really knew what to expect from the PlayStation Experience. How big would it be? What would the booths look like? Would third-party publishers show up in force? Would it be a ghost town? No one knew.

The doors to the show floor opened up just as Saturday morning's keynote ended, and we finally got a glimpse at the mysterious PlayStation Experience. At first, it was bustling. Everyone coming off the high of the keynote, and they just wanted to play some games. Attendance was probably at its peak in those moments. It didn't feel packed, but there was certainly a steady flow of people at all times.

LittleBigPlanet 3 celebrates the PlayStation Anniversary

LittleBigPlanet is a pretty special franchise to me, and I'm glad Sony has allowed it to stay around for so long. Compliments of LittleBigPlanet 3's new engine, you can get a quick look at some other Sony franchise...

Fat Princess Adventures is coming to the PS4

Sony has announced that Fat Princess Adventures is the next piece of the Fat Princess saga. It will appear on the PlayStation 4, and no real release date was given. It seems like it's no longer solely based on cast...

Catch 15 full minutes of Uncharted 4: A Thief's End gameplay photo
Catch 15 full minutes of Uncharted 4: A Thief's End gameplay
by Chris Carter

Sony started off with a bang with a live demo for Uncharted 4: A Thief's End, which you can check out above. It's a full 15 minute demo complete with live gameplay, which includes a fateful encounter with Drake and the floor.

It looks...very Uncharted, which is both good and bad, I guess. You'll see lots of stealth gameplay and full-on shooter sections alongside of the beautiful new engine -- but I've always thought the games were pretty impressive visually, so I feel like it's just par for the course.

I was pretty disappointed by Uncharted 3, so I'm hoping for an improvement with A Thief's End.

Sony's 'EMAGON' sure doesn't look like a game

As Steven pointed out plainly in the announcement for EMAGON, it spelled "No Game" backwards. In what seems like an elaborate troll from Sony, the PlayStation Espana YouTube channel has revealed the secret. It's...an explana...

When Sony announced PlayStation Experience, I didn't pay it any attention outside of a cursory glance, but in the weeks since, the Las Vegas event has shaped up nicely. It kicks off on Saturday, December 6 with a keynote at 1...

Poll: Final Fantasy VII most wanted remake, Dragon Quest V favorite PlayStation game

Limited run, 20th anniversary PS4 is a PS1 throwback photo
Limited run, 20th anniversary PS4 is a PS1 throwback
by Steven Hansen

Just for a second I thought this was colored like the silver PS2 I always thought was kind of sucky (or the recent Dragon Quest PS4), and then I saw those PlayStation Japan live stream pictures (via Kotaku) with that matte gray look, that PS1-colored logo on the console and its controllers' PS button. Yeah, good stuff. 

Sony is only producing 12,300 of these individually numbered consoles (globally), which go on sale at Sony Stores in Japan tonight for 49,800 yen ($418). It comes with a vertical stand and that camera I forgot about, too. PlayStation Blog Europe has more, including a €499 price point, nice comparison shots, and no details yet on how to purchase this in that region. 

North American folks (US & Canada, at least) will be able to "pre-order" from a "very limited supply" on Saturday, December 6, says our PlayStation Blog. The PlayStation Experience keynote at 10:00am pacific will apparently give up details on that process, but Sony's Adam Boyes has said the console will be on sale at the event itself.

If you can't drop the cash on it, maybe check out the 20th Anniversary Theme for your regular old PS4. It comes with the PS1 start up sound.

Also, yes, you can buy me one of these for Christmas.

Shake your head 'yes' to this footage of the Tekken team's Project Morpheus game

"What did you do this summer?" I always hated that first-day-back-at-school question. Perhaps the children of the future can answer, "Well, the heat outside made me fell all melty so I just stayed indoors all summer and hung...

Sony teases 'best kept secret,' insanely pretty EMAGON photo
Sony teases 'best kept secret,' insanely pretty EMAGON
by Steven Hansen

PlayStation's Spanish website has upped this new teaser for something called EMAGON, which we will learn more about on December 5, this Friday, likely at those new Game Awards

It looks dope and I want to see more. I hope it's a videogame, but I'm not sure. The extent of weird-name-sleuthing I did was note that EMAGON is "no game" backwards. It sure looks like a game, though. A real pretty one.
