Sony E3 Conference Recap: All the Announcements and Reveals

Days Gone

Zombie hunting at its finest and grittiest.

Monster Hunter World

After years of fan begging, Capcom finally deliver on the biggest fantasy the world of Monster Hunter has had: “big” console support! Monster Hunter World is coming to PS4, Xbox One and PC in early 2018. Check out an article with screenshots, trailer and artwork here.

Star Child (VR)

This trailer is creepy as fuck and should scare the pants off of anyone in VR.

Monster of the Deep Final Fantasy XV (VR)


This quirky VR title puts players in the shoes of the fabulous foursome and expands upon the fishing mini game.

Moss (VR)

God of War

This iteration of God of War is taking on the distinct Playstation feel and seems to capture the vibe of games like Horizon Zero Dawn and Uncharted. It’s set to release in early 2018.

Detroit: Become Human

Destiny 2

The sequel to Bungie’s mega franchise got a longer story look and some Playstation exclusive news  of a Strike, Exotic Weapon and PvP map for the PS4.


Spiderman is getting the Playstation treatment and it’s vibe is very Batman Arkham Asylum meets Infamous.



That’s a wrap from Sony’s press conference. Thoughts on the news? Let us know in the comments!

More from E3 2017

    as much as I was craving for a FROM announcement, I must say that not having a new game from them this early is also kinda of reassuring on the level of dedication to quality they are showing for their next games.
    Spider man looks freaking dope too ^^

    Ni No Kuni 2 is the only yet unreleased game of 2017 that I’m anxiously awaiting. I’ll get the God of War because it looks like a huge departure from the prior games, Uncharted Lost Legacy, Detroit Become Human looks groundbreaking, Skyrim VR is tempting. Will get the remastered remaster of Shadow of the Colossus, having not played either the PS2 or PS3 versions.

    I was yelling at screen: oh, for F’s sake: Demon’s Souls for PS4 is the only remake I crave! :00008:

    I liked a good many of the reveals, but this always is a good reminder for me how much money and time I don’t have for gaming.

    Still saving up for PSVR (not being super successful at it either :) )

    I have PSVR and never use it. This conference didn’t do much to make me think I will soon. :-/

    There’s some games I definitely wanna play with VR (Moss, GT and Inpatient all look really good) but that prompts the money debate again. Once I have enough for the headset, I then need to save more to get games. Basically it’s like owning two consoles which I haven’t had the resources for in a long while.

    Fairly disappointed in the Sony conference. There were so many exclusives that they didn’t even talk about. Of the games they showed, Days Gone and the Shadow of Colossus were the only ones that had me interested. The Horizon Zero Dawn DLC looked good as well, but I’ll just wait for a GOTY edition to play the whole thing. I had an interest in Detroit: Become Human when I saw the announcement at e3 2016, but this year, I was turned away from the game. The new God of War looked great story wise, but the combat looked very hack and slash and boring which is the whole reason I stayed away from the entire series. Overall, a bad showing for me.

    As interesting and full of possibility VR is, it’s still out of range for a lot of people.

    Plus all the games seem to be updated versions of older games, with a few new ones scattered in. I don’t feel a need to buy Skyrim or Fallout AGAIN just to play in VR.

    Remastering Shadow of the Colossus is ok by me. It’s an older game that’s actually worth doing again.

    God of War looks interesting, going in a different direction than the last games, but I’ll wait to pass judgement until I’ve seen actual gameplay.

    A few of the videos had broken links for me, so I’ll have to see what’s up with that. Days Gone and Detroit were the two that I remember not working.

    Lol, speaking of technical difficulties with Days Gone, the audio feed had some issues at the beginning of the theater experience. We couldn’t really hear anything from Uncharted. Days Gone was similarly quiet at the beginning…

    By that time our crowd was having some fun with it and when the PC gets on the motorcycle I’d estimate half the audience made "Vroom" noises

  9. Avatar theotherMittens says:

    The audio was the same for me, streaming at home. I thought I accidentally hit the mute button for a bit.

    Virtual reality has come a long way since the ‘Lawnmower Man’ looking era, but I don’t see myself getting into it anytime soon.

    I don’t know. I just don’t see myself putting on a full helmet to play a game. That is until BTLs (Better than Life) from Shadowrun become a reality. In which case, I’ll be a BTL junkie for sure.

    None of the announcements really did much for me except the Xcom2 dlc.
    Monster Hunter is cool though. I’ve always wanted to try it out. So I’m sure I’ll get that one too.

    i have an interest in vampyr but i won’t be holding my breath.
