No trailers, no fluff, just a list of everything announced and confirmed at the PlayStation Experience Keynote in Anaheim.
It was packed keynote, no doubt helped by the absence of any significant news at this year’s Gamescom. The headline acts are The Last of Us Part 2 and Uncharted 4: The Lost Legacy but there were also impressive showings for Ni No Kuni 2: Revenant Kingdom, and Resident Evil VII.
It was also nice to see PlayStation embrace and package up its history, with classic games like Wipeout, Crash Bandicoot and PaRappa the Rapper all getting PS4 remasters. In fact, the only real grumble we have about the keynote was a rather slim PlayStation VR line-up.
