As has become a tradition over the past couple of years, Sony’s PlayStation Experience followed on from last nights Game Awards (If you’re British it did with those time zones). As always the hype leading into this event had reached fever pitch with leaks appearing to hit just days before the show. Prior to this show Marvel vs Capcom 4, The Last of us 2 and Wipeout HD collection rumours had been doing the rounds.
Here’s how 2016’s rendition of PSX went:
Firstly, the show started bang on time which is a first as PlayStation shows are notorious for starting late.
It’s a trailer we’ve not seen before. And it’s got us all guessing? Chloe Uncharted 4 DLC? The Last of us 2? Tomb Raider? We’re 6 minutes in with the trailer and we still don’t know yet.
It’s Uncharted: The Lost Legacy, It looks like an Uncharted Spin off rather than DLC.
Shawn Layden is onto the stage after the trailer finishes, and discusses that December 3rd (today) is PlayStations Birthday. The first PS1 sold in Japan on this day in 1994.
Oh and Shawn’s wearing another nice teaser t-shirt this year. A Wipeout T-Shirt. Hold on tight folks.
Next up we’re onto Capcom logo on stage, and then we see Megaman, he’s assisted by Ryu, then Iron Man Shows up. Marvel vs Capcom 4 is real and the crowd are going nuts on the live stream. It’s called Marvel vs Capcom Infinite and it’s out in 2017. The crowd are seriously going ape shit.
Shawn’s back. Confirms first gameplay footage will be at the Capcom Cup. Ultimate Marvel vs Capcom 3 is available to download exclusively to PS4 TODAY.
Shawn says he doesn’t want to stay on the stage too long, but announces he’s got a lot of love for old classic PlayStation games, He then leaves to reveal WIPEOUT.
The crowd are seriously losing their shit. It’s a Wipeout collection coming in 2017.
Next trailer is for Destiny Dawning.

And back to Shawn Layden after that trailer. He tells us there is one more thing today. The game is in early development. It’s The Last of us Part 2. The crowd are going insane.
And that’s the show. An absolutely insane amount of content shown today. Literally one thing after the other. Unbelievable show. Looking back over the post adding the trailers in, it reads as a PlayStation fan wishlist, what an exciting time. Not forgetting God of War, Spiderman, Shenmue 3, Final Fantasy 7 Remake & Red Dead Redemption too. Wow, just wow.
