Isnt this those awards PS Japan gives to the most selling games of the year? Weird that they're showing it on the english Playstation Youtube though.

Yeah the PlayStation Awards is an annual ceremony where PlayStation Japan gives awards for the best selling games of the year in Asia plus some user awards, but I'm not sure the ceremony was ever streamed on the western channel like here. There is usually no announcement during the event, before anyone ask. You can find the results for the 2018 edition here.

For sure, December 3 is also a special date, so who knows if they wont give us a little something.

This is an annual SIE Japan event for sales milestones in the Asia region.
HOWEVER , seems like this year's event is going to be streamed globally, unlike previous years, might it be just SIE globalization processes? Celebration of PlayStation's 25th anniversary? Probably those too reasons actually, yep, there is going to be absolutely nothing interesting about this.
Seriously though, you will be hella disappointed if you expect literally anything out of this.

Are you saying they will finally release PS1 games on PS4? Because I'm hyped.
I was commenting on PSErebus hyping up Sony doing something on Dec. 3 as if only an insider could guess that Sony would do something, anything (since the tweet is super, ultra vague) on the 25th anniversary of the Playstation.

I'd like to see them add PS1 on PS4, and that would be a good time to do it. But so would when they put out the 20th anniversary PS1-themed PS4.

Maybe Sony cares about BC now, who knows. If they're working on full BC for the PS5, they should have the PS1 emulator ready by now and it should run fine on the PS4. But they might want to save it all for the PS5, if they're even bothering to go back past the PS4.

tldr; I agree with modiz, it's most likely just Playstation consolidating regions, and PSErebus being able to read a calendar.

Nice music video opener though.

I wish I could read Japanese. I should have stuck with it in college (dropped the course after a week like the moron I am).

These nostalgic sounds though, getting me.

Oh yeah it's the PSP and the Vita
Monster Hunter Portable heh and Persona 4 Golden, yeah those are quite appropriate for those two.
Also could make out Dragon Quest, Atelier series, Revengeance and FFIX, plus a bunch of others as they cycled through.

EDIT: aw yeah my baby Vita
Is it going to be?
Edit: Oh guess that's a yes
