Fresh from NY, Sony keeps its conference season going
Despite a New York event hosted a few days earlier to formally reveal new PS4 hardware (see p8), Sony was the only hardware manufacturer to deliver a conference alongside TGS. It began by reiterating its plans for PS4, before announcing a special Final Fantasy XV edition of it console, plus the handsome, Vita-bound SaGa Scarlet Grace. After news to delight fans of Japanese eccentricities, the conference climaxed with a cameo from Hideo Kojima who continued the dripfeed of details about Death Stranding, saying it will be an open-world action game that can be played both competitively and cooperatively.
