While E3, gamescom and the Tokyo Game Show are all focused on showing off new games and products to the press and public, Destination PlayStation is all about retailers. SCEA has announced that they’re holding another Destination PlayStation in 2013, but because of its retail focus don’t expect to see any official reveals.
Luckily, it’s likely at least some announcements will leak, just like how this year we found out about LittleBigPlanet Karting and the next God of War. Games like Ascension, Beyond and The Last of Us are basically guaranteed to be there, as are casual titles like Wonderbook‘s Diggs Nightcrawler and Walking With Dinosaurs. The Vita will certainly be a huge focus for Sony as better retail support is vital to its chances at success.
It’s possible that the PS4 will be shown, but probably only to the bigger retailers who are less likely to leak things or accidentally announce them. As for Gaikai, don’t expect Sony to announce anything to retailers about it, considering its whole point is to basically put them out of business.
We’re excited to announce the 13th Annual Destination PlayStation event, hosted by Sony Computer Entertainment America, February 25-28, 2013. This year’s destination brings us back to the picturesque Sonoran Desert and the luxurious Fairmont Scottsdale Princess resort. As our guests, you’ll be treated to food, drink, play, and a first look at all the amazing new releases coming from Sony Computer Entertainment America Entertainment in 2013.
Destination PlayStation will run from February 25th to 28th and we’ll let you know what gets leaked.
