Sony has announced (via the PlayStation Blog, naturally) that they’re bringing 26 PS4 games to this year’s PAX East convention.
By giving attendees more than two dozen demo options, Sony will be able to showcase a wide variety of titles at their booth including AAA blockbusters (Gran Turismo Sport and Crash Bandicoot N. Sane Trilogy), highly-anticipated indie offerings (Cosmic Star Heroine, Tooth & Tail, and What Remains of Edith Finch), and a few PlayStation VR curiosities (Psychonauts in the Rhombus of Ruin and Farpoint).
Here’s a full look at the 26 PS4 games Sony will bring to PAX East 2017 (though a few of them are also in development for the Vita):
The 2017 PAX East convention will open its doors this Friday, March 10, at the Boston Convention and Exhibition Center.
PlayStation Europe definitely kicked the year off right after they unveiled a new video highlighting the many exclusives coming to the PS4 in 2017.
In addition to games such as Gran Turismo Sport, Horizon: Zero Dawn, and the PaRappa The Rapper remaster, the sizzle reel also includes a glimpse of Quantic Dream’s Detroit: Become Human, which had previously been tagged with a “TBA” release date.

The first big event of the 2017 “Video Game Calendar” will be PAX South, which will be held in San Antonio beginning on January 27. We’ll surely hear more about at least a few of these games then.
Twin-stick shooters are everywhere nowadays, but Housemarque is going back to the genre’s roots with Nex Machina, which was announced this weekend during the PlayStation Experience. Building on their previous games including Dead Nation and Resogun, the developer is also teaming up with Eugene Jarvis, the creator of Robotron and Smash TV, to create a game where robots have enslaved humanity:
In a world where humans have become more and more addicted to technology, machines have evolved from simple helpers to replacements for unwanted jobs — conscious entities with their own feelings. Robots surpassed mankind’s abilities, becoming the superior being, and started to refuse to serve us.
After the singularity, the rise of the machines was inevitable — and unstoppable. But nobody even noticed. Mankind’s best and brightest were too busy updating their status on social media. When all seems lost, out of the blue a mysterious hero appears: you. Who sent you? Will you save humanity from itself once again? And last but not least, are your skills sharp enough to confront an army of fiendish robots out for blood?
Writing on the PlayStation Blog, Housemarque’s Mikael Haveri said that Nex Machina (which means “Death Machine” in Latin) will be a “true arcade experience” that also serves as something of a spiritual followup to Robotron and Smash TV.
Nex Machina doesn’t currently have a release date.
