Sony took to the stage in their usual late time slot on Monday night to share a cavalcade of exciting software.
No release date was announced, but returning God of War II game director Cory Barlog has bee a little sheepish on the subject. That likely means it's coming sooner, or later, than we think.
The latest 'game' from David Cage and the folks at Quantic Dream, Detroit: Become Human, followed with a trailer that drew from both Heavy Rain and Beyond: Two Souls whilst showcasing the game's detective sleuthing.
Another story of man vs. machine morality, point your peepers at the trailer below.
Final Fantasy XV also revealed a PSVR experience, the announcement accompanied new footage of the main game that somewhat redeemed the dodgy gameplay demo that had appeared on Microsoft's stage earlier that same day.
Another multiplatform game with exclusive PSVR support is the freshly announced and ingeniously titled Resident EVII. It's the return to survival horror we were promised that, let's be honest, owes a lot to the cancelled P.T. Played from a first-person perspective and with no weapons on show, it takes the series in a totally new and fresh direction.
Releasing 24 January 2017, in a move that further apes P.T., there's a demo available now on the PlayStation Store. Whilst you wait for it to download, why not watch the trailer:
Whereas most didn't want to see CoD take the stage, fans had been clamouring for what followed - in part, anyway. Crash Bandicoot will return to PlayStation in remastered versions of the first, second and third games, as well as appearing as a guest character in Skylanders.
Just as Resident EVII channelled P.T., so to does Hideo Kojima's giant middle finger to Konami. Emerging to a hero's welcome, Kojima exclaimed "I'm back!" before sharing the reveal trailer for Death Stranding. Once again starring The Walking Dead's Norman Reedus and a fetus - Norman Fedus, as some have dubbed the duo - the bizarre footage is best seen for oneself.
It definitely has that distinctive Kojima flavour...
It had been rumoured going into E3 that Infamous developer Sucker Punch might be working on an exclusive Spider-Man game, and whilst that didn't pan out, that's only because Insomniac are bringing it to fruition instead! Likely carrying their experience with Sunset Overdrive to the table, it looks like another superhero is finally getting the video game treatment they deserve.
Sony's conference closed with a gameplay demo of debuting Days Gone, in which you play a biker caught up in a World War Z scale zombie apocalypse. It looks very Last of Us again, which after Uncharted and God of War heading in that direction does raise the issue of diversity in the PlayStation line-up.
Regardless of that, it does look pretty stonking.
Sony had a great showing this year, with an enthralling conference full of pleasant surprises. You can read up on EA and Bethesda's efforts now, whilst Ubisoft and Microsoft round-ups are still to come.
