PlayStation State of Play September 2022 live report

saber says: Ronin looked great

It looked great – I know there will be some disappointed that we didn’t see Silent Hill or Metal Gear, but these new IPs look great, plus Project Eve they’re bringing the kind of over the top stuff. show that I love.

martin robinson

Not a terrible show, all in all.

martin robinson

Tekken 8, Rise of the Ronin, and Yakuza Ishin are finally making their way west. Oh, and you shouldn’t forget the PSVR2 showcase with Demeo and Star Wars Tales from the Galaxy’s Edge.

martin robinson

Thick, even.

martin robinson

So, that was weird; however, by my count, we got three pretty good reveals.

martin robinson

ChrisOTR says: Thanks for today’s coverage Martin, great job. Appreciated.

Thanks for your coarse comments.

martin robinson

(I’m not being very subtle there)

martin robinson

ChrisOTR says: Hmmm, well, some good stuff for other people I guess. Personally, I was expecting more for PSVR2.

I was expecting a bit more anyway, but what was there looked splendid. And here’s hoping we can get more details on that in the days to come.

martin robinson

Ah well, it looks like we’re wrapping up with a God of War Ragnarok trailer.

martin robinson

I guess they’re really digging into that style of play right now.

martin robinson

So it feels Nioh-esque, just like Wo Long: Fallen Dynasty, which is also in the same lineage.

martin robinson

Rise of the Ronin, by Koei Tecmo, available in 2024 and exclusive to the PS5 console.

martin robinson

VektreX says: Stellar Blade looks like it could be Platinum, looks thick

Can we make the chunk happen? Even if it’s just for tonight.

martin robinson

An action game that looks absolutely spectacular.

martin robinson

But this will be Project Eva.

martin robinson

Sorry, that’s not exactly the kind of information you’re coming to Eurogamer for.

martin robinson

I don’t know what this is, but it looks great.

martin robinson

This is what TGS used to be for: a mech-action game told with real weight and drama. It’s what I guess you’d call a ‘chunk’.

martin robinson

Here’s a PlayStation Clubcard now, or something like that.

martin robinson

It’s wonderful that Yakuza has gone from being a super niche to a series that is now drawing worldwide attention. And with good reason: it is one of the best big-budget series.

martin robinson

There will be more Yakuza news, of course, during tomorrow’s live stream.

martin robinson

That’s amazing though: there’s been a lot of demand for a localization of this.

martin robinson

This is a long-awaited dream: Yakuza Ishin finally gets what looks like a remaster and western release at last!

martin robinson

Sbandy says: “looks thick” Is that what the kids are saying now?

martin robinson

Demeo, a first-person board game, is also announced for PSVR2.

martin robinson

So yes, there is Tekken 8. Now in PSVR2 games, starting with Star Wars Tales From the Galaxy’s Edge.

martin robinson

Tekken is the game that was included with some of the original PlayStation bundles.

martin robinson

I also can’t think of a more PlayStation fighting game than Tekken.

martin robinson

I have a blind spot for Namco fighting games, I’m afraid: I’m a fan of Virtua Fighter. However, this looks thick.

martin robinson

It’s straight to Tekken.

martin robinson

Okay, really here we go.

martin robinson

Sony always manages to be late somehow.

martin robinson

Well, here we go… shall we?

martin robinson

Give us Gradius 6.

martin robinson

And hey, let’s dream big.

martin robinson

kami says: What was the last Armored Core game? (Oh God, was it the horrible Kinect?)

I love that Kinect game! It’s a cookie and has some hilarious scenarios, like the angry apple riddle. Great game.

martin robinson

Maybe even a new Silent Hill!

martin robinson

After seeing that Pikmin 4 was finally revealed today, I’m now thinking anything is possible.

martin robinson

What I would really love, and this is a doddle, is to see FromSoft’s new Armored Core. You imagine?

martin robinson

There’s also promise of more in PSVR2, of course we know very little at this point.

martin robinson

So we’ll see a lot, I’m sure, from the likes of Koei Tecmo, Square Enix, Capcom and maybe, just maybe! – even Konami.

martin robinson

Well, it’s time for the Tokyo Game Show and many of these announcements and reveals will be ready for the show.

martin robinson

Oh, do you mean what to expect tonight?

martin robinson

baritone says: Hello Martin. What’s the word on the street?

It’s ‘PARKING RESERVED’ on mine but that’s an overzealous neighbor who was upset people were parking in his spot so he painted it himself so it’s not official or anything.

martin robinson

Here in Lewisham it’s all pouring rain, and I’m very comfortable in my shed with a beer waiting for everything to start.

martin robinson

Well hello, hello and how are you?
