Are Sony not bothering to show anything or have I missed it? Bizarre that they'd not be having a headline presentation at TGS with a new console weeks away.

 

I hope Namco (I still can't bring myself to call them Bandai Namco) show something for the next gen. I don't think they've announced much PS5/XBSX stuff have they?

Sony skipped TGS last year too.

I could understand that with the PS4 showing its age and the shadow of the next gen looming but their new console is out in weeks.

It's as if they hadn't planned this year very well, or are now in full on complacency mode.

 

Maybe they'll just do a surprise standalone press conference stream to show off some of the UI etc.

Ridge Racer please.

 

Optimistically hope Sega decide to kick off next gen with a new Virtua Fighter.

 

Capcom are unlikely to show any of Street Fighter 6 if the rumours of the additional year of development its been given are true. They'll show Dan in Street Fighter V just for me though (optimistically a next gen port/patch too).

I think there’s a big difference between getting a third party game signed as an exclusive and getting a publisher to develop a game for you, revisiting a franchise after losing almost all of the associated talent. The only high-resolution voice assets for it belong to Nintendo so I guess they’d have to re-record the dialogue a third time?

 

I guess Bluepoint have to do something now but this seems like someone trying to one-up the rumours that some of the earlier PC ports are getting re-released.

H'amaze if true.

 

DualSense Stealth Action.

I'd love this to be true but I reckon MS is more likely to buy Sega than this happening... Sony not at TGS is insane... maybe they've got some live stream in coming, they certainly need to do something at this point. The Zenimax deal can't have blind sided them as they were also looking to buy them last year. Seem the content wars have begun!

Are either of those companies reputable and likely to actually have stock? Never heard of either of them. I have now managed to secure pre-orders with two titans of the gaming retail industry, Gamersheek and Fashion World. I dont have any faith that either of them will be able to fulfil the order!

Sounds legit enough, if not exactly synonymous with games retail.

I'd imagine many online retails are diversifying their product lines to maximise any potential revenue, PS5 is hot so it's an easy win and once you've got an account you might by some shoes or something ;)

This is weird. I've just had an e-mail from Currys with my pre-order number, boasting that "You're in!".

 

I never paid the £5 deposit when I went through the order process as I couldn't use vouchers. I got one from Argos instead.

 

I'm confused, the e-mail looks legit.

No, I actually think that looks legit. I was going for a “You’re in” / ‘urine’ pun that totally didn’t work via the medium of hastily typed forum post :hat:

 

I gather Curry’s have been all over the place with people’s orders though, there’s been confusion and controversy and uncertainty over who’s preorders have been confirmed or not.
