Shu Yoshida: You can look back at what we did for Gamescom in the past (for PGW)

In the latest podcast episode of PS I Love You, XOXO, Shu was asked by Colin Moriarty on the "scale" of their PGW event and what to expect out of it.

To which Shu replied : "In terms of positioning of press conference for PGW, it is exactly the position that we used to have for Gamescom. So, you can look back at what we did for Gamescom in the past." (for PGW)

Question and response starts at 1:26:10 in the podcast.

While many of us have long correctly guessed that PGW is basically just a reshuffling of their Gamescom show, this is the first time a Sony executive confirms it.

For me, 2013 Gamescom was depressing. But 2014 was lit, so I guess it comes down to what's the goal this year.

Totally forgot Paris Games Week was still coming. Games wise the year feels pretty much over for me after Mario Maker and MGS somehow.

Hmm sounds smaller than some were expecting but still a cool event. I hope the stuff they announce doesn't take forever though. I'm still waiting for Rime and Wild :-(

Good news, Sony's GamesCom conferences have been usually better than E3 but this year is the exception.

Past GamesComs they announced price cuts, redesigns and the first reveal of the PS4 hardware.

Also where is the hype thread for Paris? TGS had one running for weeks.

I am expecting Media Molecule, Quantic Dream and possibly Ubisoft with Far Cry Primal. Then Horizon as well.

I want to see Rime, WiLD, The Tomorrow Children, The Witness, etc. Load me up with all the goodness from last Gamescom.

Fudge that. Zoetis said this will be better than E3 and that's exactly what I'm expecting. My hype is basically through the roof right now. I can only be disappointed.

Paris
First time I can't attend PGW (I went every year since it started) because I'm out of the country and fucking Sony is hosting a conference...

Can we expect this as well then?



In all seriousness, I'm eager to see what they bring to Paris.

Dount we'll see more of Hellblade, given how they're taking it in a different direction.

Still, give me more surprise announcements ala WiLD and I'll be happy.

I thought this was expected. Sony specifically said that they wasn't going to have a GDC conference this year because it was too close to E3, so they picked PGW instead.

So, a spiritual successor to Silent Hill by the original team?

I know it won't happen, but let me dream, people!

Time for more small game announcements that dissappear into the ether never to be seen again!

In all honestly though the games that are showed at Gamescom are cool, but it's crazy that this is the 3rd one (in a matter of speaking) and Rime is still not out or even seemingly close to release.

That's just nonsense. A conference can never top Sony 2015.

I feel like PGW is too close to TGS and PSX. Feels like any megaton (to me) would have been announced at TGS already or saved for PSX.

I'm lacking hype right now, maybe it's for the best.

TGS is a Japaneese show for Japanese devs. This is a European show for European devs. You wouldn't see things from Quantic Dream, Sony Bend, etc. announced at TGS. Shows like E3 and PSX are anything goes for the most part.

Gamescom has never had "big" game announcements?
Depends on your definition of big. Usually we get more mid-tier first party games like last year's Tearaway and Until Dawn. If we're talking legit AAA games, I think the last one was Resistance 3 in 2010.

I wouldn't completely write off the possibility of Gran Turismo 7 but I think expectations for it have dropped.

I still think we're going to see Quantic Dream's new game as the big announcement of the show.
