Sony had 'too many' announcements for Gamescom, TGS reveals hinted

PS4 games to be a focus of the Tokyo Game Show

Sony has so many games to announce that it had to hold some back from its Gamescom conference, says SCE Worldwide boss Shuhei Yoshida.

Sony brought an end to Tuesday's official Gamescom activities with a press conference packed with new game announcements, from Tearaway for PS4 to confirmation of a DayZ release on the new console. Games were a focus of this year's show, said Yoshida.


"This time, the theme was to introduce first-party games, as well as a number of third-party games," Yoshida told Famitsu in an interview, as translated via Gematsu.

"But to be honest, in selecting the games we wanted to introduce, we realized it wasn't possible to fit everything into the frame of the conference, so unfortunately there were some games we couldn't introduce this time," he went on to reveal.

"That's one of the reasons we had the new The Order: 1886 and Bloodborne trailers before the conference," he added.

This means Sony still has more revelations to come soon, Yoshida later hinting that new PS4 games will be a "very important point" of its Tokyo Game Show plans.

"On the subject of PlayStation 4 in the Japanese marketplace, more content is necessary in order for it to gain ground. If the games made by Japanese developers further multiply, game fans will gradually begin buying PlayStation 4," said Yoshida.

"From here, we're working with publishers to increase the PlayStation 4 user base."
