Of course, in the framework of this event, games are announced and demonstrated, which are of particular interest to the Japanese. But among the tons to the core of the “anime” and very niche projects, there are sometimes extremely interesting games that can appeal to Western players. We are glad to share with you the impressions of the press conference of Sony, which ended just a couple of hours ago.
The conference started with the music video “Boost Your Play”, which shows the upcoming releases for the PlayStation 4 console.
