With Comic-Con currently underway, today Sony has announced that SCEE will be holding their Gamescom 2011 press conference on August 16, 2011.

From VG247, to quote: The event will begin at 7pm and end at 8pm.

Expect this to be heavily Vita-focused, with worldwide dates - or at least, a European timeline - possibly announced. Press will also be allowed to try the handheld after the press conference has finished.

Also expect showings of Uncharted 3 and Resistance 3 during the presser.
