I watched over an hour of video game trailers from the Playstation Experience for you. Here's a barely useful list of games that were mentioned by name that I caught, augmented with details from Kotaku. I probably missed a few, and there were trailers of indy games where nothing was named. Also, it now occurs to me that there was no PSN update this week because they were saving it for tonight.
Uncharted: Lost Legacy (no date) Marvel vs. Capcom: Infinite (late 2017, Ultimate Marvel vs. Capcom 3 returns to PSN tonight) Wipeout HD (collection of previously released ames, summer 2017) Destiny: The Dawning (12/13) Crash Bandicot (all three games remastered "plus", 2017) Resident Evil Biohard VII (2017, new beta out today) The Last Guardian (next week) ParappaTheRapper, Patapon, Locorace (remastered, demo out today) Knack 2 (no date) Gravity Rush 2 (a free DLC for a character's backstory) GT Sport (2017) Ni No Kuni II: Revenant Kingdom (2017) Yakuza 6 (summer 2017) Yakuza Kiwani (remake of original, early 2018) DanganRonpa V3 (2017; PS4 and PSVita) Nier:Automata (March 7th, demo "soon") Xs Origin (Feb 21, 2017; PS4 and PSVita) Dreadnought (2017) Pyre Vane Absolver What Remains of Edwin Finch Nex Machina Let It Die (free for everyone in NA/EU today) Mother Russia Beleds (available today) Mark of the Wolfs (avaialble today, PS4/PSVita) Surgeon Simulator (available today) Tomb Raider: Lara Croft Go (available today, PS4/PSVita) Windjammers (rerelease with online play) Starblood Arena (PSVR) Nioh MLB The Show 2017 (with a Retro mode which looks like the original Griffey game) Horizon Zero Dawn The Last of Us: Part 2 ("in super early development")
If you like anime cut scenes, this was a presentation for you.
Of the two Naughty Dog games, Uncharted (featuring Chloe and Nadine) looked like gameplay footage, though a section of the game where you were along for the ride a lot. It could possibly come out in 2017. The Last of Us wa prerendered cut scene and there's no guarantee it'd be out even in 2018. The scene was really well done (maybe I'd rather watch the game as a movie than finish playing it?)
As someone who bought Knack on release day and loudly didn't like it, I was surprised a Knack 2 existed at all. It looked exactly like the original game, except with two players, and no more fun than the original. The crowd didn't boo, but it wasn't the love they gave to the other games, and they carefully positioned it so they didn't have to talk about it.
On the other hand, I have no idea what Vane is, but it looked beautiful. And Nex Machina is by those who did Resogun. It's a different game, but looks like it has the same frantic pace that made Resogun fun.
Retro mode in MLB The Show is a nice node that people will enjoy for a few hours, but no sign of a Story mode is glaring.
Uncharted: The Lost Legacy turns out to be the single player add-on for Uncharted 4, which means both it's probably not as deep as you'd hope and that single player add-on isn't coming for a long time even if you bought it on day 1. It'll also be sold seperately, which sounds similiar to the Last of Us add on.

I finally got into Mad Max weekend and could not get myself out. I spent a lot of time driving around dirt roads, thinking I was driving to one way point but sidetracking myself along the way. Exactly the game I was the mood for.
Maybe no store update this week because of the holiday? Still, last week for December PS+ games, new games up on 01/03.
PS+ Full lineup: Day of The Tentacle Remastered, PS4 (Cross buy on PS Vita) This War of Mine: The Little Ones, PS4 Blazerush, PS3 The Swindle, PS3 (Cross Buy on PS4 and PS Vita) Azkend 2, PS Vita Titan Souls, PS Vita (Cross Buy on PS4)
I'm going to split out the DLC into it's own post starting Thursday, so it's not sitting in my unread pile for half a week. Checking in from last week: consensus says MLB The Show '09 > MLB 2K9. On the Shelves:
