Not really sure what to expect from the event. Wondering if they have any surprises in store, though to be honest I won't be getting the PS5 anywhere near launch so whatever games they do have available early on doesn't really matter that much to me. Of course, if they announce a sequel to/remake of The Legend of Dragoon (which won't happen, but one can always hope), then I'll have to reconsider my stance against getting a console at or near launch.

Around the Network

First party, run down:

-Sony Japan: a huge studio with multiple teams hasn't published anything major since 2018

-Polyphony Digital: Been 3 years since Gran Turismo Sport.  So I expect something in the next year.  

-Insomniac Games: They're a crazy productive studio.  Releasing multiple decent sized games a year at time. 

-Naughty Dog: still working on TLOU 2, but they almost certainly have another team or two.

-Bend Studio: Made Days Gone in 2019, not likely to have anything for a few years.

-San Diego: MLB will happen this year.

-SSM: I believe they have two teams.  Last title was 2018, but I wouldn't expect anything soon.

-Sucker Punch: still working on GoT.

-Pixelopus: early days for their next title.

-GG: Horizon was 3 years ago, come February it'll be 4 years since their last title.  I'm pretty sure they have a second team as well.

-LS: Last game was 2019, early days for their next title.

-MM: Dreams was just pushed out this year, but during Dreams production, they released Tearaway, so it's possible they have another small side production.

Overall:

Safe bets:

-GG with Horizon 2 seems pretty likely.

-Sony Japan with something.  Silent Hill has been heavily rumored for a while.

-Polyphony Digital with GT7.  

-Insomniac Games with something.  Ratchet and Clank seems most likely. 

 

Probable non-new titles:

-Dreams

-TLOU 2

-GoT

Possible, but relatively unlikely:

-MM with new IP

-Sony Japan with a second IP

-Insomniac small title

-SSM showing something



Thread News!

Aaaaaand we're back. I decided to close the thread temporarily while I worked on the OP, here's a quick rundown;

- First is the poll, it's back! I'll be attempting to change the poll every week or two, it's basically whether or not I remember at this point, lol. 

- Second, I made new banners for the OP, upcoming games and community sections... also threw a random picture of the PS5 into one of the posts which I still have no idea what I'll be doing with... please be excited for the PS5 I guess? *shrugs*

- Third, the upcoming games section is back, I picked five first party games to pop in there, since we're all looking forward to the PS5's release... I'm wondering how many trailers it'd be fine to put there considering there's gonna' be a lot of games coming out, but I don't want it to be too cluttered, I feel like more than five will be fine, but not sure where to draw the line with it... maybe other games can just be in a text list? I'll let you guys decide.

- Fourth, in the community section I've now put a place called "Community Screenshots?", I'm really not sure what to call it, but basically as it says, if you've taken some snaps of games (Let's face it, tons of games these days have photo mode) that you're particularly proud of, feel free to post them in here, I'll pick my favourite to put there, and it'll remain until something else comes along!

- Fifth? So as those of you who've been with this thread since I first made it, I've always struggled with maintaining it myself, which is why originally I had @Aura7541 helping me, well unfortunately due to his super busy schedule he wasn't able to help maintain the thread, but thankfully I've recently had @Hiku offer to help out when and if possible, which is great news as it means we should be able to see more news and such in the thread, meaning more traffic for a busier and healthier nation thread... yay!

That's all for now guys, feel free to leave any feedback, if there's anything you'd like to see in the OP or what you feel I could be doing better with the thread, cheers!

It seems like I need 50 posts before I can create my own thread. This means I will post the leak here.

SPOILERS:
- Big digital Playstation event is planned for early/mid June.
- Sony will fully reveal the Playstation 5 there, they will present us the features of the DualSense (functionality, haptic feedback...), the new Create button will be explained, the new Playstation Assistant system will be shown (big part of the show) and plenty of other new features will be announced. The most important thing is that we will finally see the final design of the PS5. However, the price will most likely not be revealed. 

Game announcements:
- New Gran Turismo game will be announced + gameplay will be shown. This will be one of the big PS5 launch games.
- Demon's Souls Remake will be announced + trailer will be shown. This will also be one of the big PS5 launch games.
- Silent Hill Reboot will be announced, Sony is teaming up with Konami to develop this (SIE Japan Studio is the main developer). They will probably only show a teaser for this one.
- New Call of Duty game (Black Ops developer) will be fully revealed, one of the big PS5 launch games. Playstation will extend their partnership with Activision, PS5 owners will be the first ones to have access to DLC content. This game will be available for PS4/PS5, the PS4 version supports a free cross-gen upgrade.
- New Crash Bandicoot game will be announced, coming to PS5 holidays 2020.
- Horizon 2 will be announced with a big trailer, release is set for early 2021. This game will demonstrate how powerful the PS5 is and how good the upcoming Playstation Studios games will look in the future. Seriously this will be the biggest thing at that event imo.

There will be more minor game announcements but these are the major ones I heard from my sources. 
Originally, a similar event was planned for April 2020 but plans changed after the whole coronavirus situation. There is another event planned for August 2020, the price of PS5 will probably be revealed there.

Here are some other interesting things:
- Sony's initial plan was to release a Remastered version of The Last Of Us: Part II (4K/60FPS) for PS5 next year. The plan was to include a multiplayer mode in that version and resell that game again for $60 (Naughty Dog's excuse would be that the PS4 is to weak for the multiplayer mode). However, the announcement of Microsoft's smart delivery feature completely ruined this plan. Sony doesn't want to be seen as the greedy company, they had to change the plan. One possibility that I heard from is that The Last Of Us: Part II on PS4 could support a free cross-gen upgrade to PS5 but the multiplayer mode could still be locked to an exclusive PS5 version that will be released in 2021.
- Spiderman and God of War successors are in development for PS5.
- New crossover fighting game (similar to Smash Bros. and Playstation All-Stars) is in development for PS5. Many people have great hopes for this game and want this game to compete directly with Smash Bros. Sony is putting a lot of work and money in the development of this game (Nathan Drake, Kratos and Crash Bandicoot will all be playable characters in this game), however you shouldn't expect an announcment soon as this game is still very early in development. The aimed release right now is 2022 but 2023 seems more likely.
- Playstation Now will be revised in some ways for PS5. It will play an important role throughout the PS5 life cycle, this is the exact reason why we won't see full backwards compatible with PS1/PS2/PS3.

You missed a few things on your list man. You even mentioned several times that the CoD partnership was still ongoing and it was a no show. Thoughts on the presentation?

Has anyone taken note of how Star Wars Battlefront 2 and Call Of Duty were presented in the store as PS+ games? There's something rotten going on and I hope I'm not too lazy to outline what has happened when I get home. Have to get images from my PS4, to USB, to image hosting site, to Vgc and I find it so tedious I might just eat more pizza instead if doing it. I WILL say that the option to "add to library" was removed, or more accurately, never present with Call Of Duty. You only have the option to download it, which is utter bullshit. The situation with SWBF 2 is more convoluted, but also complete BS.

I got them both when Battlefront 2 went up and I was able to add them both to library without any problems... then I downloaded Battlefront 2 and I'm glad I did since I'm having a ton of fun with it, lol... no idea why it won't let you add them to library though o.O



I've seen some games in the past only having the download option but it was quite rare. It might have something to do with these games as a service as they are listed in the service list as well. Either way, it's not that big of a deal as you can cancel the download after clicking on it and the game will be in the library afterwards. That's what I did because my external recently died and I wanted to limit storage on the main.

A friend from Finland, and another in the UK, told me the same thing. Seems like it's only North America where these 2 games have weird rules applied to them.

That's what I ended up doing for Call Of Duty a few days ago, but the option should still be present as it normally is, instead of starting it and futzing around with download lists. And the Battlefront 2 situation is completely different. A picture show accompanying the explanation is basically required. Well, at least I think it is. Unfortunately, I have to attend to some housework shortly.
