Well, that was quite a TGS conference, some announcements were excluded from this article because they’ve been already covered by other authors on this site (Like the Assassin’s Creed new DLC or Kingdom Hearts 2.8 HD Remix).

So fellow 4-One community members, do any of those announcements interest you? Share your thoughts!
