Gamescom 2014: the ultimate trailer and news round-up


Sony kicked things off by revealing the impressive figure of 10 million PS4 consoles sold to date. 

It also announced the version 2.0 firmware update which brings some tasty new features to the table, including Share Play - a feature that lets friends join your game, even if they don't own a copy themselves.

The PlayStation TV micro-console was also given a European price and release date - €99 on 14 November. The PlayStation Now streaming service received a vague European release date of '2015', with a beta set to roll out in the UK first. 

Games-wise, there was plenty to get excited about. We saw the first ever gameplay footage from PS4 exclusive Bloodborne, while horror fans were also treated to announcements for Until Dawn and P.T. - and it turns out the latter is itself a sort of playable announcement [SPOILER ALERT] for a new Silent Hill game by a dream team consisting of Metal Gear Solid legend Hideo Kojima and movie director Guillermo del Toro.

Zombie survival favourite DayZ was also revealed to be making its way from PC to the PS4, while a new Destiny trailer showed off snippets of explosive multiplayer action.

Sony's conference had a phenomenally powerful indie line-up, the most interesting (and weirdest) of which was The Tomorrow Children. We have no idea what it's about, but watch the trailer below and you'll understand exactly why we want to get our hands on it as soon as possible.

WiLD, from Rayman creator Michel Ancel, also looks very interesting - although we know very little about it apart from the fact that you'll be able to play as any living creature in an area that's the size of Europe.

Hideo Kojima himself also made a surprise appearance, showing off an insane Metal Gear Solid V: The Phantom Pain video in which the trusty cardboard box gets used in bizarre (and juvenile) ways.

Anyway, enough talk. Here are all of the trailers from Sony's Gamescom showing this year:
