E3 2015: Sony Conference and Trailers

E3 2015 - Sony Conference 2
Shawn Layden opened the press conference with a standard corporatey “we are so proud and excited” speech. Then a game happened.

The Last Guardian

  • Shuhei Yoshida is very excited to finally be able to talk about the game. Or at least, show us a trailer.

Horizon: Zero Dawn

  • Post-apocalyptic Earth is overrun by sentient robot dinosaurs
  • There”s a human woman who hunts them with a bow.
  • There”s a giant robo-dinosaur battle in open-looking world.
  • It”s from Guerilla Games.
  • Nice landscapes.

Street Fighter 5

  • Nice art style.
  • Beta on PlayStation 4 from from 23rd to 28th July. US players need to pre-order. In EU and Asia, go to and follow the steps there to win beta access.

No Man”s Sky

  • It”s a universe-sized sandbox full of choices.
  • They showed a boundary war between 2 factions in space. You can join in and take a side, or choose not to.
  • Every star in the displayed galaxy is a sun with planets and ecology. There are millions.
  • Everyone is trying to get to the centre of the galaxy, for some reason.
  • Sentinels guard planets from explorers.
  • All the scenery is destructible, which seems like a good reason to guard planets from explorers.


  • Media Molecule have been working on an “open dreamiverse”.
  • You can create any kind of weird dream-like scenarios you want.
  • I”m not sure if there”s anything more to the game than watching other people”s crazy dream scenes but with a decent filtering system, that could be totally okay.


  • Couple of people having a chat as they wander through the forest before HORROR ENSUES. Sort of.


  • New expansion is called The Taken King.
  • More supers.

  • Another co-op strike.
