Sony’s Gamecom conference confirmed for August 20th, 6pm GMT. 24 first party PS4 games & 8 new IPs left to reveal?

Sony’s Gamecom 2013 conference has been confirmed for August 20th, the day before the main show, at 6pm UK time. It should be interesting as Sony previously teased PS4 games have been held back. Uncharted 4 teaser? It’s got to be Uncharted 4.

SCEE president and CEO Jim Ryan said a while back that the plan was to space out announcements, following it up by adding: “There’s a lot coming. I’m sure you heard from Shu [Yoshida] that he has, just his studios, he has 30 games in development. 20 are going to ship within the console’s first year of life, and of those 12 are new IPs… There’s a lot going on, it’s just we need to keep stuff back. We’ve Gamescom for us Europeans, and we need to have something to show at Gamescom don’t we?!”

Assuming that the so far announced first party games are part of the 30 strong line up (Driveclub, Hohokum, Infamous: Second Son, Killzone: Shadow Fall, Knack, MLB 14: The Show, The Order: 1886 and Super Stardust HD 2) that leaves 22 new Sony games in total. Of those, 8 will be new IPs if Hohokum, The Order 1886, Driveclub and Knack are part of that 12 Ryan mentions (and Sony aren’t including The Playroom as a full game).
