Paris Games Week

Paris Games Week
0.0 0


Sony has confirmed its PlayStation conference at this year’s Paris Games Week will take place on October 27 at 9am PT / 12pm ET / 5pm GMT.

This is the first year the company has decided to hold a press conference at the show, after it opted not to have a presence at Gamescom due to the German event’s proximity to E3 this year.

“We’re delighted to announce that we will be hosting an international media briefing at Paris Games Week,” it said at the time. “With the changes this year of E3 taking place a week later and Gamescom taking place earlier, we feel that both PlayStation and the wider industry would benefit from a major news milestone later in the year, during the most important period for gaming.”


Please tell me that FIAT SON SHOW means fashion show in French? If so, I’m in!


Here’s some hype. This show wasn’t really on my radar until today.

First, we have a verified insider on GAF post this (he called The Last Guardian at E3 a month before the Guardian news broke):


How? How is that even possible? So, something will somehow top TLG, Horizon, Shenmue 3, FF7R and Uncharted 4 footage?

Then we’ve got this series of Tweets…


Which seem to be hinting at Gran Turismo 7 with Bugatti’s new car, the Chiron.




I can also confirm some of the games set to be playable at PlayStation Experience this year. Just look at this list!

Assault Android Cactus
Cosmic Star Heroine
Crypt of the NecroDancer
Darkest Dungeon
Death Tales
Death’s Gambit
Dungeons & Dragons Sword Coast Legends
Invisible, Inc.
Kerbal Space Program
Killing Floor 2
Life Goes On: Done to Death
Lost Sea
Manifold Garden
Moon Hunters
Night in the Woods
Nuclear Throne
Ray’s the Dead
Revolver360 RE:Actor
Salt and Sanctuary
Soft Body
Space Dave
Stories: The Path of Destinies
Strike Vector
The King of Fighters XIV
To Leave
Viking Squad

Of course, this is only the beginning of the games you’ll be playing in San Francisco this year — we’ll have more info to share soon. We’ll also have panel details (!), gift bag contents (!!), and on-site activities (!!!) such as the big keynote presentation on Saturday morning. You won’t want to miss that!


We have a few things to show you.
Starting today, on the Housemarque homepage you’ll see a giant countdown and five question marks. Each day next week one slot will unlock revealing something we prepared to celebrate the Paris Game Week and our 20th anniversary.

Stay tuned and don’t forget to buy some popcorn!
