By on

Here are some of the announcements that were made at the press conference on the Tokyo Game Show: Sony kicked off with a bang on their special press conference way before the Tokyo Game Show was even starting, but this gives it enough hype for PlayStation fans to be excited on the upcoming games and reveals for the gaming console giant.

One of the big reveals was Sony?s name change to the VR headset Project Morpheus into the PlayStation VR, as well as a list of games that will be supporting the VR gear, some of them include Final Fantasy XIV. Another big drop on the press conference was the announcement of a price drop for the PlayStation 4 console, the new price will be at 34,980 yen, which at around $292 compared to the original $334 price tag, and this however does not signify that other countries like America and Europe will follow suit on the price drop.
