With next week's PlayStation Showcase now confirmed, Sony executives have started to put out their hype tweets. Case in point: Christian Svensson, the head of global third-party relations at the firm, says we can look forward to "some great games, big and small, from all over the world". Since Sony hasn't provided any guidance as to what specific titles will be at the show, Sevensson's open-ended tease could cover pretty much anything and everything.
Marvel's Spider-Man 2 seems like a very safe bet — gameplay along with a release date is likely — and The Last of Us Multiplayer is another good option. Outside of those two, though, the floor is essentially being left to Sony.
Of course, there are strong rumours a Metal Gear Solid 3: Snake Eater remake is in the works, and all the signs point to it getting announced during the PlayStation Showcase. And when Svensson mentions smaller titles, promising indie projects like Little Devil Inside and Pacific Drive come to mind. Can you think of much else? Share some predictions in the comments below.
I totally forgot about the little devil inside, just re watched the first trailer and regained my hype lol hopefully it comes out this year and will bet any money it's on playstation plus extra day one.
Also there will be a Honkai star rail release date without a doubt, does that class as a smaller title.
Little Devil Inside has been on my PS Store Wishlist since it was announced, maybe now is the time lol
Must be some new big game announcements, looks a bit quiet for the rest of 2023 post FFXVI
Gendesign, gendesign, gendesign..
I will faint.
Also any Naughty Dog project.
Everything else, doesn't matter.
But also many cool options. Like Rise of Ronin.
Everything below that (like Spiderman 2 or something), zzz
Greatest week in years.
There will also be the Fuji Summit (Xpro4?!)
A Post Rock concert in Munich.
Planet of Lana release.
I hope for Dino Crisis Remake and Parasite Eve Remake.
I want to see Stellar Blade and hopeful for Ghost of Tsushima sequel.
Bloodborne 2 and Patapon 3 remaster is all I want. But I guess it will be more horizon and things like that.
A new trailer for FF7 Rebirth is likely. Personally, I really want to see what Bluepoint are doing.
@Snake_V5 I'd love a parasite eve remake but I'm sure square lost the rights to using that name, so maybe a fresh reboot of the series under a new name would be better.
They're going to announce a 2 part MGS collection, mark my words.
One of the volumes will have the 3 Solid Snake games and the other will have the 3 Big Boss games.
Nice, can't wait for the games, I hope most of the games are true next-gen (current-gen) games 😃
I’ve seen the Gear word being thrown around a lot. Dunno if it’s Metal Gear Solid or Gears of War!
@nessisonett well... even if MGS remake is just a baseless rumour, that's still more likely than Gears of War releasing on PlayStation
I can’t wait for this. I’m hoping that we get some Ps+ drops and an outline for the rest of the year. A few more games trickling in for August and beyond (and before 2024) would be nice to have since the release schedule looks barren.
Maybe we'll see a Pragmata update? Or possibly Deep Down?
There will be no hype control.
Here's some predictions on what we will most likely see :
First Party :
Spiderman 2 Release date set for Sept .
Bluepoint- Brand new Single Player AAA IP
TLOU Factions - Releasing Q1 2024 with open beta set for this fall
Helldivers 2 from Arrowhead - Coming 2024
Twisted Metal from Firesprite - Releasing Fall 2023
First Person Shooter from Firewalk - Coming 2024
Ghost of Tsushima 2 - Coming 2025
Brand new Astro AAA game ( Compatible with both PS5 and PS VR2) - Coming 2024
Santa Monica new IP from Cory Barlog - 2025
Show closes with Marvel's Wolverine gameplay trailer - Coming 2024.
Metal Gear Solid 3 Remake - PS5 Console Exclusive ( 2024)
Silent Hill 2 Remake Release date - Q1 2024
Final Fantasy VII Rebirth First look - Coming Q1 2024
Mortal Kombat 1 - Releasing Fall 2023
@nessisonett definitely Gears of war 6, console exclusive on PS5.
Small games Big games
“ Brand new Astro AAA game ( Compatible with both PS5 and PS VR2”
I really hope not! If you’ve played both Rescue Mission (VR) and the flat game, they are fundamentally different in how the levels are constructed, with the former being designed around being placed in the 3D environment. It would be a lesser game if it had to play flat too.
I can get behind this. Your predictions are realistic.
It's been years, and I swear I've given up but still every time I see a MGS thumbnail on a news article, I click as I reach for my hopium capsule.
Please be real, please!
I'm not keeping my expectations in check. I'm going full hype train, as it should be! I believe Uncle Jim "We're gonna let the games do our talking" Ryan will deliver.
Keeping my expectations low. I'm not gonna expect any MGS remakes or anything Bloodborne related but if either one happens, then I'll be screaming of joy
@thefourfoldroot1 Could be it's another VR game but I recall one of the expectations from PS VR2 internally at Sony was to have games that are both playable on console and VR. ( Think GT7, , RE 8, Hitman 3 etc)
I usually keep expectations in check but I’m really excited for this. It’s gonna be something good.
@JSnow2. Thats the way to do it.especially we have not had a PlayStation showcase for a long time.word up son
@jimbouk good call I forgot all about Cory's new game, this would be a great place for it
Probably get a preview of the next Destiny season too, you know Sony wants to wave it's Bungie flag around a bit
Half life Alyx !!
I think with Spiderman 2 wrapping up, Sony is going to tease something about the Wolverine game.
Been awhile for a playstation showcase I'm expecting a massive blowout, as in can't close my mouth from awe type thing, trying so hard to lower expectations but man it's hard
I hope a good chunk of these big and small games are from japanese developers
Can I hope for those leaked new Jet set radio game and persona 3 remake?
@Grimwood if we got a new gendesign game AND ghost of tsushima 2 my head would pop.
I’m also holding on to the dream that maybe a Xenogears remaster or remake could happen. All my hoping finally paid off for the suikoden remasters so I will continue dreaming for the time being.
WipeOut VR or else!
I’m gonna change it up a bit and post which PS studios I anticipate hearing from:
Last game: Days Gone
Released: April 2019
Last game: Blood & Truth
Released: May 2019
Last game: Dreams
Released: February 2020
Last game: The Last of Us Part II
Released: June 2020
Last game: Ghost of Tsushima
Released: July 2020
Last game: Astro’s Playroom
Released: November 2020
Insomniac was left off because we know Spider-man 2 is slated for this year. I know some of these studios were also releasing compilations, updates, dreams games, and PC releases. However, I believe that these studios will be the ones we hear from.
Based on rumblings I'm expecting more remakes. Hard pass.
I'm looking forward to 45 minutes of indies, Final Fantasy, a pair of Sony's own games, and the rest of the show will be dedicated to something nobody wants, like the Suicide Squad State Of Play.
Jesus not another remake
@DeathlySW I hope that's not true, but we'll see next Wednesday.
I don’t think it’s coincidental we’ve had this announcement today and we know Santa Monica Studio got a visit from Herman yesterday…
I reckon GoW DLC en route.
after reading the comments either some people are way too unrealistic , and some people seem more grounded , but i feel like we'll get a few surprises. i'm saying metal gear 3 remake , maybe new uncharted reveal , a few other surprises.
if we are throwing out completely random guesses would be san monica announces a partnership and corey is working on an exclusive castlevaina game for ps5.
@BlueWeezer I honestly hope not as well. Like I’d be fine with the snake eater remake and then a couple new IPS or sequels. But I really don’t want the video game industry to mimic Hollywood.
@twitchtvpat I feel like they will save Spiderman 2 for like a hour or two after Xbox big live event.
This show case should focus on new IP and let them breath.
@knowles2 maybe a spiderman 2 trailer and offical release date , but i feel like they are going to save game play and more info for a dedicated spiderman 2 state of play
edit: but i agree reveals would be nice , we all know they are working on a bunch of games , time to show the world what they've been working on.
I say it every time a showcase or state of play is on, give me socom reboot or remake you cowards lol
Also hoping for GenDesign news!
Any MGS remake would be amazing also...only been able to play Phantom Pain having no way to play PS3 gems
As long as we get a healthy mix of 1st party titles, 3rd party, brand new IPs, and some remakes I'll be happy.
I'm going in with no expectations, just as I do with every showcase, but I really don't need a whole lot to please me, honestly I'd be happy just seeing Spider-Man 2 & whatever Bluepoint has been working on, everything else will just be a nice bonus.
@UltimateOtaku91 Just wait until Squeenix announces the 4th Birthday.
@Snake_V5 “i hope for Dino Crisis Remake and Parasite Eve Remake”
Now that would be awesome. I really enjoyed Dino Crisis back in the day and always thought Parasite eve to be vastly underrated.
@Green-Bandit Yeah Parasite Eve was very underrated, it was like a cross of Resident Evil and Final Fantasy. Its a shame that more wasn't done with it since it had quite a good story and characters. It needs to come back someday.
MGS2 sons of liberty remake should happen before MGS3 snake eater remake.
@Snake_V5 i agree with that. It really was a fun game. I can still see the front cover art in my head. I bought it and beat it only once, but would for sure support a remake, reboot or sequel.
