If you are planning to tune into coverage of this year’s Tokyo Game Show, you’ll be interested to hear that Sony has just announced details of their press conference at the event, which is obviously one of the main highlights taking place.

It seems like the Tokyo Game Show has come up on the gaming calendar out of nowhere as the electronics giant confirmed that their PlayStation press conference will be taking place on Wednesday 14th September – yes, next week.

Those of you hoping that Kaz Ridgeee Racerrr Hirai will be fronting the keynote are going to be slightly disappointed, as it has been confirmed that Sony Worldwide Studios boss Shuhei Yoshida will be handled the company’s main speech in Tokyo this year, as reported from VG247.

Highlights of the show are obviously going to include a detailed segment on the PlayStation Vita, as the successor to the PSP is finally ready to launch in Japan and other Asia terrorrities before the end of the year – in November if our previous article this week is to be believed. Hopefully Sony announce some surprises too, such as some new game announcements, possible exclusive content on upcoming titles and maybe even some new footage of highly anticipated titles such as The Last Guardian and Shadow of the Collossus since they are both being handled by the same Japanese studio.

Don’t forget it is a waste of time getting your hopes up on seeing Final Fantasy Versus XIII at the event, as Square-Enix has already confirmed that the infamous RPG won’t be shown at the event – much to our disappointment.

However, on a much more positive note, Sony has also confirmed that there will also be a live stream of their event, so you’ll be able to catch everything live as it happens – click here for the link. Are you expecting any surprises from Sony’s press conference this year or not?
