Live Sony E3 PlayStation Conference Finished

The Sony E3 2011 PlayStation press conference has ended.

What happened? The headline announcement was NGP becoming PlayStation Vita and getting a €299.99/$299.99 price (3G + Wi-Fi) and autumn (holiday) date. The standard Wi-Fi model will cost €249.99/$249.99.

We also finally saw cross-platform Vita to PS3 play in action in new title Ruin.

Irrational's Ken Levine confirmed a Vita version of BioShock and Capcom's Yoshinori Ono confirmed a Vita version of Street Fighter x Tekken.

Sony also made much of PlayStation Move, which has now sold 8.8 million units. A Star Trek game was outed for the PS3 wand and will come with a phaser-styled Move controller. Even BioShock Infinite will have Move support.

Sony revealed Sly Cooper 4, gave the much awaited Ico and Shadow of the Colossus HD (and 3D) bundle a September date and revelled in EVE Online sister-game Dust 514 becoming a PS3 exclusive.

Uncharted 3 looked absolutely brilliant, and Sony unveiled two new PlayStation products - a 3D telly and a pair of 3D glasses. They'll be cheap and Sony hopes will get more people into 3D gaming. Whether they'll head overseas to the UK and Europe we don't know.

Oh, and Sony US boss Jack Tretton apologised for the PSN hack and identity theft.

What follows is the full blow-by-blow account of what happened.

    best of the bunch imo MS have gone no controller mad.
  • toa_boa 4 years ago

    what a massive cool show; core, core and more core.

    Even the Move-stuff was pushed for the core for the most.

    PSV will most likely be a fantastic gadget, games look sweet!
  • Darren 4 years ago

    Almost as underwhelming/rubbish/predictabl
    e as Microsoft's conference IMO. The highlights for me being the announcement of Sly 4 as practically every thing else was known about before E3. The Vita doesn't interest me either although it looks like nice tech but will it have plenty of decent games unlike the PSP?
  • vizzini 4 years ago

    +1 IronGiant: The mood was appropriately established by Jack's Elephant in the room comment, and pushing too much content (even Last Guardian) would have been too much and appearing arrogant. UC3, PSV Modnation, PSV Price/features/games, 3D support were my enjoyable parts. So, so wanted to see Sega announce a VF5 update for consoles and/or PSV version, and wanted the visor 3D headset (2x 720p native OLED lens) they showcased with a prototype in February (for £200); as I really can't buy any more TV screens in our house, and do want UC3 in 3D.
  • GamesConnoisseur 4 years ago

    Mmm

    Yippee re Vita but tired of the bitter DLC exclusives on the both platforms, though pleased re Move enabled games but was hoping for more.

    Now up to Nintendo to see who got the best showing of the three, no worries I m not going to rank MS above 3rd!
  • morriss 4 years ago

    @woodnotes Agreed
  • betrayerofhope 4 years ago

    that playstation vita is so mine!
  • woodnotes 4 years ago

    Sony's conference was no better than the MS conference as far as exclusives etc were concerned, which surprised me a little. The only new game they announced was Sly Cooper - although we already knew about that last year and unfortunately it isn't being developed by Sucker Punch. Vita looks good but I'm still not sure it'll be enough to win most people over from sticking with their smart-phones on a casual basis.

    Both conferences were a big let-down IMO, let's see if Nintendo delivers.
  • TheEarlOfZinger 4 years ago

    Microsoft have been smashed to bits this E3. Sony now just need to sort out their security once and for all.

    Can't wait to see what Nintendo have got.
  • IronGiant 4 years ago

    Well the bitter xbots are out in force. Launching new hardware at a great price with decent games not enough I assume, you were the ones dribbling over kinect last year tho.
  • coolbritannia 4 years ago

    Hardly any exclusives, focus on casual movement games, damn this Microsoft conference. I mean, Sony conference.
  • morriss 4 years ago

    Don't care about 3D, don't care about handhelds. Don't really care about Sly 4.

    No new IP. Sony Fail. Ms Fail.

    Ninty? Pretty please?
  • RodHull 4 years ago

    I've just skimmed through the commentary and is it true that Sony only announced 2 new PS3 exclusives: Sly 4 and Dust 514? Are they trying to copy MS in their utter lack of exclusives from now on?
  • RodHull 4 years ago

    I'm not sure whether I'm more underwhelmed by Sony's or Microsoft's presentations. The TV is old hat when you consider there's been similar tech in Land Rover Sat-Navs for the past few years, allowing the driver to watch a route map and the passenger watch a film.
  • DawnrazorDCLXVI 4 years ago

    I'm wetting myself. Oops, again. Anyone complaining about Sony after the split screen announcement and NGP pricing point needs to stop, drop, and roll, because they're a flamer. Oops, third time.

    -Bedwetter
  • Kami 4 years ago

    @coomber; sort of agree. I mean, there was some nice games there, but the PSTV was easily the biggest announcement aside Vita - which is looking tasty but seriously, anyone really expecting this not to be £250/£300? I'm as hopeful as the next person, but Sony have pulled this one on us before...

    Still, it is cheaper than I expected it to be. Not by much - but cheaper. So yay for the Vita, and yay for a good looking 3DTV which hopefully will be a great entry level product into the market.
  • coomber 4 years ago

    That full-screen/split-screen 3D telly was the single biggest thing announced in all of that by a mile. Astounding.
  • SpaceMonkey77 4 years ago

    I don't know MD. MS have recently teamed up with Nokia, so I'm reading into why MS would do that. One thing Nokia do well, is good portable tech. Now, MS have no knowledge in that area, so imagine if they teamed up on such a secret project. An MS handheld I'm not going to rule out seeing, especially if they can match PSV, and bring Live along too.
  • MDL199 4 years ago

    I don't think Microsoft will jump into the handheld scene just yet but maybe after they've released a follow up to the 360 it's possible.
  • Ahskay 4 years ago

    Still, the reaction on AT & T and the look on KAZ's face is priceless ^;^
  • MDL199 4 years ago

    @bleaseboxx

    Well, what the hell did you want?!

    There were lots of great exclusives for PS3 and a simply stunning handheld on show with equally stunning games and at a great price.

    Can't see how any genuine Playstation fan couldn't have been impressed.
  • SpaceMonkey77 4 years ago

    Well, I'm console agnostic, I go where I can find the best experiences. At home, that's still 360 IMO. Portable wise though, I'd be happy with iPhone and PSV. The big question beckons though. How long will it be before MS choose to create their own handheld to rival Sony and Nintendo? Win Mo phones are a step in that direction already. Problem is, people upgrade their phones often, so phones aren't best for games with this in mind, unless they are as consistent as iPhone.
  • MDL199 4 years ago

    On the PS blog they've got some stunning looking girl doing interviews wow
  • spongebob 4 years ago

    The next three hours = game journos and industry types getting wasted
  • MDL199 4 years ago

    @bleaseboxx

    Of course you really are a PS3 owner and not just a 360 fan boy on a wind up.

    The Sony conference had way more on show than Microsoft's and I don't see how anyone can argue with that.
  • chessboxer 4 years ago

    All 5hrs are being broadcast in PS Home. The Wrap Up Party just started.
  • SpaceMonkey77 4 years ago

    Certainly an interesting Sony con. I'm certainly sold on the PSV, (that's what I'm gonna call it). The price is okay and the beggar has freaking trophies too. Bioshock, Uncharted and SFxT in my pocket are not to be passed on.
  • Ignatius_Cheese 4 years ago

    I thought the DJ had more energy than all the presenters combined! More of that shit please!
  • gamotakon 4 years ago

    agree! I'd rather be sleeping 2h ago and read the few nice (not great) news in the morning...
  • spongebob 4 years ago

    Good idea Ignatius_Cheese :)
  • MDL199 4 years ago

    Great show by Sony I must say although can someone kill this fucking DJ.

    Nighty night all
  • Ignatius_Cheese 4 years ago

    Will have to find some other way to go to bed with a smile on my face. Perhaps waking up the other half?
  • Anufea 4 years ago

    2 1/2 hours of talking and trailers, albeit with a sprinkle of awesome here and there. Phew, good night guys.
  • betonos 4 years ago

    To sum up: I wish I went sleeping 2hrs ago...
  • spongebob 4 years ago

    Night everyone :) Ninty better have a proper press conference.
  • evarofzentral 4 years ago

    3:00, uh I'm so tired. Night everyone.

    Night all
  • 32768Colours 4 years ago

    Ah well I'm off to bed. Night night everyone!
  • chessboxer 4 years ago

    The DJ is fitting.
  • Burkey123 4 years ago

    Vita looks great but no last gurdian??................. at all?
  • Braincleaner 4 years ago

    so, is that it? can i sleep now? no GTA V?
  • FuzzyDuck 4 years ago

    Free bobblehead dj with every Vita?
  • Marshall2008 4 years ago

    that was a pish ending
  • kamps09 4 years ago

    Thank you all and good night!
  • spongebob 4 years ago

    As a press conference this was not better than Microsoft's. Just the content was better. E3 is probably not important enough anymore for the companies.
  • betonos 4 years ago

    The price is right. The hardware seems promising. The name... Well, you can't get everything.
  • MDL199 4 years ago

    249 is staggering just compare the stunning graphics to the 3DS which is no better than the current PSP. Ninty will surely have to slash the 3DS to around £129 to stay in the game.
  • Fudce 4 years ago

    Get Monster Hunter on that puppy and you've got Japan dominated
  • zythe 4 years ago

    3DS for £99.99 soon then?
  • Mattattattatt 4 years ago

    3am though... agh
  • Marshall2008 4 years ago

    Fat chicks wi drums
  • 32768Colours 4 years ago

    @Marshall2008 No chance of it being £153 for at least 8 years.
  • Mattattattatt 4 years ago

    Vita came off well there I think.
  • betonos 4 years ago

    By Sony standards ?249 = £249
  • Ignatius_Cheese 4 years ago

    @MDL199 - Because they want to make money rather than risk selling at a loss. Vita is a risky prospect. I hope it does pay off but it has far higher to fall.
  • Marshall2008 4 years ago

    Come on Sony, what you finishing on
  • Anufea 4 years ago

    @viper_h US$ dollar price is usually without tax
  • Marshall2008 4 years ago

    $249 = £153
  • carlosdfn 4 years ago

    $249, wow...
  • MDL199 4 years ago

    Well that's a sell! How the fuck can Nintendo carry on charging what they are for their puny under powered handheld with a poor 3d effect tacked on?!

    can't wait to get my Vita!
  • darkos87 4 years ago

    hmmm 249 sounds alright actually for Uncharted and other games.
  • Marshall2008 4 years ago

    £222.24 at current Euro GBP exchange rates
  • 32768Colours 4 years ago

    So £249 and £299 respectively. $1 = £1 in console land.
  • Mattattattatt 4 years ago

    Better deal than the PSPgo
  • Jmog 4 years ago

    249£ for the wifi model? Sold!!
  • viper_h 4 years ago

    Wow the euro is 1:1 with the dollar now is it? *sigh*
  • Marshall2008 4 years ago

    Based on those prices we get fucked for £222 for the wifi one
  • Braincleaner 4 years ago

    £215.
  • evarofzentral 4 years ago

    £249 then
  • Ferral 4 years ago

    Wow, what a great price. Sure I seen something that looked like Tenchu in that vid

    @32768Colours I actually prefer LBP on the PSP... feels a bit less floaty.
  • Flynn 4 years ago

    Sony really are doing a lot of things right. Yet I can't get as excited for what they do like I can with Wii/360.
  • damusk 4 years ago

    better than microsofts but still pretty dull
  • zythe 4 years ago

    LBP Looks bloody awesome!
  • Mattattattatt 4 years ago

    Is this actually the Go! Team playing or just a cheapo song in the style of?

    Please sort out the super-floaty jumping in LBP and I'll be all over your otherwise fantastic games like a rash :)

    @Marshall2008: indeed. i think they hired big handed guys for the show (and the snake-handed bloke in the white shirt). Though it turned out, guys with big hands kind of lack speech abilities.

    Wipeout 2048 sold the Vita to me....it's just too brilliant a game series (hell, I thought Fusion was good...)

  • spongebob 4 years ago

    I wonder if Sony could have made this press conference a bit more professional. All of the presentations and speakers are somewhat unrehearsed. Yeah, MS might not had as much interesting content for core gamers but their conference was very compact.
  • Marshall2008 4 years ago

    They are all nervous incase their presser gets hacked.

    Next up ANONYMOUS posts on their big screen, lol
  • evarofzentral 4 years ago

    I'm guessing that track's not going to be one of mine
  • Mattattattatt 4 years ago

    I'm hoping you can use Vita as a dualshock... take that, Café!
  • Marshall2008 4 years ago

    do they all have huge hands? makes the vita look small.
  • viper_h 4 years ago

    LMAO turns it off just as he fucks up completely.

    This guy needs to take a few deep breaths too. Sony must have a good stash of amphetamines backstage?
  • zythe 4 years ago

    Seems Mod Nation has some loading issues -- taking a good few seconds before the game catches up with the commands.
  • kirby2096 4 years ago

    So does this mean the PSVita won't have DualShock 3 pairing like the PSPGo so you can play it on tv like a home console?

  • KD 4 years ago

    six-axis dual analogue sticks and touch screen front and back, I'm interested.
  • 32768Colours 4 years ago

    Considering its being viewed over someone's shoulder, the screen quality looks amazing.
  • MDL199 4 years ago

    Wow, i'm watching the live stream via playstation blog and those who scoffed at Sony's claim that the NGP or Vita was almost on par with PS3 graphically will have to eat their words. The Vita Uncharted game is as stunning as anything i've seen on a home console!
  • mr_pink 4 years ago

    looks like a nice use of touch for the ledges, though you could almost just let the game play itself for that bit
  • Stepharneo 4 years ago

    point and click games would be pretty swish with the uncharted control set-up...and really can broken sword ever be re-made too many times?
  • viper_h 4 years ago

    Looks like you're just taking the gameplay out of the game. Draw a line, watch the guy do the level for you.
  • Marshall2008 4 years ago

    seems to be choppy, pausing to load maybe?
  • Ahskay 4 years ago

    I wonder what kind of obscure Japanese tentacle games will be released for the Vita, you know with the touch screens and stuff...
  • whatsthecoo 4 years ago

    Touch looks shoehorned in- glad it's optional
  • 32768Colours 4 years ago

    You can touch the enemy to take him out? Surely you should buy him a drink first?
  • chessboxer 4 years ago

    Holy shit, that looks sick.

  • Eraysor 4 years ago

    @Fudce Good job they're making one right now...
  • Chufty 4 years ago

    It's hardly generic. How many generic FPS games share the same world with massive PC MMOs?

    Finally, TITS
  • mr_pink 4 years ago

    dull generic sci-fi story. wish someone would adapt an Iaan M Banks novel, if that's even possible
  • zythe 4 years ago

    BIOSHOCK!
  • Eraysor 4 years ago

    I assumed the slightly poor graphics was because they would want it to be scalable to low to mid-range PCs, as EVE does. Obviously that's not true and it just looks a bit pants.

    yeah @kamps.... sounds like halo N+1

    ok, that different angle stuff is a cool way of doing splitscreen
  • Miths 4 years ago

    Great to hear about the GOW and ICO/Shadow collections in 3D. Unlike many of the "modern" 3D games, that should also ensure better performance without severe graphics trade-offs.

    I gotta admit that Killzone 3 proved quite a disappointent to me as a 3D showcase. It looked like it was running at DVD resolution or lower.

    Tom, does that mean we'll get a full live blog of the after show event?
  • Cocytean 4 years ago

    perhaps they could also mention when the HK store will come back online
  • Mattattattatt 4 years ago

    @nuanimal I expect us to hear how PSN is stronger, improved, and how many great titles are planned. Not sure about an apology...

    @nuanimal: Hacks? What hacks?
  • nuanimal 4 years ago

    Will be interesting to see how Sony gloss over the recent hacks...
  • Mattattattatt 4 years ago

    @kamps09 the software support for PSP has felt on the wane for years, but it's still shifting a surprising number of hardware units worldwide (particularly in Japan). I'm not entirely sure how they've manage it. I'm sure Sony will want to keep that going as long as possible.
  • JBlokeUK 4 years ago

    ''We keep hearing rumours about what's going to be shown, the most compelling of which is that Howard Stringer is going to personally give his credit card details to everyone in the audience as a final all-encompassing apology.''

    PSP is almost dead now. If NGP Vita is backwards compatible, then there is no more PSP.
  • 32768Colours 4 years ago

    @silentbob

    Maybe you're right. It probably hasn't aged well. Perhaps a sequel to Tombi then instead? (Or just a euro release of the original on PSN would be nice!)
  • solidSnake04 4 years ago

    @I fear that
  • Fudce 4 years ago

    So, how long until some hacker hacks the conference?
  • Mattattattatt 4 years ago

    It'll be interesting to see if the PSP gets much attention in the wake of the NGP. I'm sure Sony will want us to know it's still alive. I wonder if they'll remind us that the PS2 is still doddering along too.
  • smelly 4 years ago

    Lets hope its less boring than the microsoft one. Or at the very least has kevin butler to make it more fun like last year.
  • Entilzha 4 years ago

    Was hoping for MS to perhaps announce a little price cut which may have forced Sony's hand... if they had no plans on doing so. /sigh

    @FuzzyDuck agreed, or even just as expansions to HD/Fury

    @JBlokeUK
    Yeah, nothing to heavy, but a price drop none the less would be great...and perhaps a new el cheapo bundle.
  • Ferral 4 years ago

    Sony are REALLY going to shine here I think. They will light up with Uncharted 3 and who knows, maybe even Resistance 3. Its going to rock!

  • JBlokeUK 4 years ago

    @entilzha

    Good point. Hasn't been a price drop for a little while now, and could tie in nicely with their big apology over the whole PSN hack fiasco.
  • silentbob 4 years ago

    As in the tedious, 2.5D platformer? Really?
  • Entilzha 4 years ago

    Price drop on the PS3 would be nice. What's the chances? I've held back an extra few days on buying just in case. Looking forward to seeing what suprises Sony have for us :)
  • 32768Colours 4 years ago

    I'd like Crystal Dynamics to announce a new Pandemonium! After they've finished Tomb Raider of course...

  • looy1 4 years ago

    TBH if Rockstar are to show anything I'd rather see the ever elusive Agent, given R*'s track record it should impress. Being an exclusive too I think it could turn out to be something special ... if it's ever going to be made :p
  • MeBrains 4 years ago

    hello... hanging out in a small city in Belgium with weather not quite as good as it was before. Wish you were here... err... ok, not really.
  • MeBrains 4 years ago

    @negotiator1: forza 4 headtracking as in GT5 years ago? ghost recon & me3 voice recognition?! I wonder how well that will work in my Dutch native tongue or double dutch english... hahaha... laughing already! 10 million. Just the exact number they sold back in december - nothing more, nothing less. Looks like sales stalled a bit. Halo 3 in 2007? You are forgetting the major fuzz about ODST in 2008 and reach in 2010 then... how convenient... :)
  • frunk 4 years ago

    Well according to Nintendo "affordable" is £230... so anywhere between £199 and £249 is "in range" of reasonable for NGP/Vita. Any higher and they are in trouble.
  • 32768Colours 4 years ago

    I'm hoping for some more original games. So far almost every major announcement has been a sequel. Perhaps its just me, but its hard to get as excited about a game when its pretty much a given anyway. Surprise me Sony!
  • JBlokeUK 4 years ago

    NGP pricing will be key too. Will it really be ''affordable''? Probably not.
  • frunk 4 years ago

    Sony need to be humble & apologetic - The latter they are good at... the former they seem to be re-learning.

    And of course a little humour would help. But could go wrong if they seem to "make light" of recent events. Kevin B *could* pull it off.

    Should be fun to see how a mega-corp like Sont deal with it at E3
  • carlosdfn 4 years ago

    This better be good.
  • frunk 4 years ago

    Intrigued by the Dust 541 announcements - it is likely multi-platform but interesting to see why it may being shown at this conference rather than elsewhere.
  • JBlokeUK 4 years ago

    Could we see some new Playstation Move software?
  • Kano-11 4 years ago

    Sony need to up the level here. I want me some GTA V. NO shitty casual games please!
  • frunk 4 years ago

    MS conference was underwhelming to say the least. Too many kids on stage and whooping "football" players for me. It is painfully obvious MS are chasing the Wii crowd and will leave the hardcore to 3rd parties. Well apart from throwing a bone in the last 5 mins for a game still 18 mths out. I for one am glad to be multiplatform. At least Sony/Ninty have some new hardware to shout about. And if you can't see that Negotiator I think you are a little blind to reality.
  • JBlokeUK 4 years ago

    So what negotiator is saying is that MS showed a lot of voice recognition features that nobody cares about and a few 'core' games with Kinect features tacked on, then finished off with the further milking of a familiar franchise?
  • MeBrains 4 years ago

    @Negotiator1 - glad you liked it then. ;)
  • lucky_jim 4 years ago

    @Grayfox2011
    The MS do was pretty poor, but "worst ever at E3"? Still some way to beat hitting enemy crabs' weak spots for massive damage.
  • JBlokeUK 4 years ago

    So, starts at 10am my time. Living in Australia has it's advantages.
  • Andrefpvs 4 years ago

    After Microsoft's arguably poor showing, Sony and Nintendo have all the conditions to steal the show. Will the former succeed? My prediction is "hell yeah".

Our live coverage has now ended. Here's what you missed: Updating...

00:14 By Tom Bramwell

Hello! We're hanging out in the achingly cool bar and food truck disco out front of the LA Memorial Sports Arena, getting ready to queue up and go see what's happening in the world of PlayStation.

00:16 By Tom Bramwell

Sony will have to go some to beat the DENSITY of Microsoft's announcements earlier. Based on previous years this will probably be a longer, deeper-diving affair, and we expect it to centre around NGP and Uncharted 3 - Sony's big hitters for 2011.

GrayFox2011 says:

You know what would be nice, a new PS3 exclusive from Quantic Dream (heavy Rain) I've already seen enough games at this E3 that look like mindless shooters. Lets have some decent story lines for a change.

JBlokeUK says:

NGP pricing will be key too. Will it really be ''affordable''? Probably not.

00:46 By Tom Bramwell

And now we're inside! Staring down at a huge central screen flanked by a trio of circular vid screens on left and right. There are three podiums underneath the main screen, two of which look like demo setups. It's all bathed in cool Sony blue in contrast to the sun-soaked funk party outside.

00:52 By Tom Bramwell

We keep hearing rumours about what's going to be shown, the most compelling of which is that Howard Stringer is going to personally give his credit card details to everyone in the audience as a final all-encompassing apology.

00:54 By Tom Bramwell

Only joking - he's going to hack into Xbox Live on stage instead.

00:56 By Tom Bramwell

They're now flashing blue spotlights in my eyes, possibly related to the last comment.

00:59 By Tom Bramwell

Haven't been told anything about a delay so let's cross our fingers for three minutes' time eh?

01:01 By Tom Bramwell

While we wait, I'd like to waste some of your time by thanking Bertie, Tom Phillips and Eurogamer TV's Johnny Minkley for working basically non-stop from 8am UK through until now in order to keep the magic flowing. I will make special Viva Pinata gardens in their honour on my return.

01:03 By Tom Bramwell

There are still people filling in so I doubt we're ready to go just yet. The place is pretty full though.

01:07 By Tom Bramwell

"Good afternoon ladies and gentlemen and welcome. We shall begin in 10 minutes."

01:10 By Tom Bramwell

"We shall begin in five minutes."

01:12 By Tom Bramwell

"We shall begin very shortly. Also, please put on your Real 3D 3D glasses at this time." F*** that noise.

01:14 By Tom Bramwell

"We shall begin in one minute." 59, 58, 57...

01:15 By Tom Bramwell

Here we go!

01:16 By Tom Bramwell

Something's happening on screen. There's a lot of rumbling against a black backdrop. Loud cheers from the audience. PS logo. It's a spinning PS3 and some dance music.

01:17 By Tom Bramwell

And there's NGP. And Move. They're dancing. This is the most erotic thing I've ever seen. Now we're getting a montage of games - Uncharted 3 and friends - while dubstep (what else) rides along the top.

01:18 By Tom Bramwell

There's a montage of NGP games including WipEout 2048 and what looked like Hot Shots Golf. And now a Move montage with Resistance 3, Cars, MLB and others.

01:19 By Tom Bramwell

There's more games in these reels than you can shake a Move at - mostly third party. It's all pretty snapshotty and hard to follow. I think the point is meant to be that there's lots of different games on PlayStation platforms.

01:20 By Tom Bramwell

That's the end of that. "Ladies and gentlemen, please welcome Jack Tretton."

01:21 By Tom Bramwell

HI JACK TRETTON. "Wow, what a crowd. There are a lot of people here."

01:21 By Tom Bramwell

You're welcome Jack. There are 6000 people here apparently. Jack's got a wicked blue tie on. Very on-message.

01:22 By Tom Bramwell

"This isn't the first time I've come into an E3 press conference with an elephant in the room. Of course I'm referring to the PlayStation Network outage. This is my first chance to address it a bit."

01:22 By Tom Bramwell

"To all our esteemed members of the press I say 'you're welcome'."

01:22 By Tom Bramwell

"To our partners... I know the network outage was costly to you. What's been incredibly inspiring is your support and offers to help us get back up to speed."

01:23 By Tom Bramwell

He's also thanking retailers for their support.

01:23 By Tom Bramwell

But the audience he's most interested in addressing is consumers. "You are the lifeblood of the company. Without you there is no PlayStation. I want to apologise personally and on behalf of the company for any anxiety we've caused you."

01:24 By Tom Bramwell

He says they're humble and amazed at the dedication gamers give to the PlayStation brand. "Network activity is currently at over 90 per cent of what it was before the network outage, and that is something we absolutely do not take lightly."

01:24 By Tom Bramwell

"We hope the next 90 minutes will go a long way in convincing you the PlayStation brand is stronger than ever." Apparently everything we see will be playable directly after the conference too.

01:24 By Tom Bramwell

"PlayStation 3 is the most connected device available today, and it's powered by the PlayStation Network."

01:25 By Tom Bramwell

PS3 apparently generates more than 30 per cent of Netflix' streaming usage, which he says is a good example of how much entertainment shizzle goes through PSN. CinemaNow is coming later this year too.

01:26 By Tom Bramwell

"Our commitment to you is that we're going to continue adding industry defining experiences to PlayStation and PlayStation Network each step of the way... The value of the platform is exponentially greater than it was a few short years away."

01:26 By Tom Bramwell

"One franchise that's become synonymous with beauty, perfection and the power of PlayStation is Uncharted..."

01:27 By Tom Bramwell

Naughty Dog co-presidents Evan Wells and Christophe Balestra are on stage to show us a live demo of Uncharted 3.

01:27 By Tom Bramwell

They've brought single-player and multiplayer content with them apparently. The SP demo we're seeing kicks off with Nathan Drake struggling against the wind and rain on the swaying deck of a ship at night. The choppy sea looks epic.

01:28 By Tom Bramwell

"Nice day for a boatride."

01:28 By Tom Bramwell

He heads inside to the ballroom of the ship where huge chandeliers sway. There's a guard at the top of some stairs who he grabs in a stealth kill and yanks over some crates. And another one he grabs from behind and sleeper-chokes.

01:29 By Tom Bramwell

He goes out on deck again and admires the undulating masses of water over the boughs. As he moves up he comes to a guard under a spotlight whose neck he breaks. Then he sees another guard creeping by observing his shadow from a wall-light, and takes him out.

01:30 By Tom Bramwell

Drakey's racking up quite the bodycount as he moves deeper into the ship below decks.

01:30 By Tom Bramwell

Platforming! He's just leapt onto something and descended into what looks like the main storage area... but aha, his enemies have pinned him down at gunpoint.

01:31 By Tom Bramwell

Nice! A guy strolls up to him to take him into custody or whatever and he disarms him with a slick takedown and starts cover-firing at enemies on gangways above him. But whoops, a car rolls along the deck and punctures the hull. Now the room is slowly filling inexorably with water and the ship is capsizing around him.

01:32 By Tom Bramwell

Good grief. The boat's now on its side and he's had to swim to the surface and clamber up crates to escape. Whoops, now he's fallen down a corridor (everything's sideways - it's a bit disorientating) and is getting knocked about by debris and rising water.

01:33 By Tom Bramwell

Something's pinned him down underwater but he manages to dislodge it with some button-mashing. He swims to the top of the flooding room to get some air, but now he's properly underwater and ripping at hatches to find a way out.

01:33 By Tom Bramwell

He makes it and coughs up his lungs in celebration. Now he's running towards camera as water chases him up a corridor. And that's it! Uncharted 3: Drake's Deception. Big applause.

01:34 By Tom Bramwell

Balestra says they want to bring that sort of experience to multiplayer too and we'll get to try a beta on 28th June (or possibly 20th, it was hard to hear).

01:34 By Tom Bramwell

28th we reckon. Now we're going to see another demo of UC3, this time in 3D. We see Drake in a suit lying in the gutter with a woman taunting him.

01:35 By Tom Bramwell

"I wonder what you're really afraid of. Not bullets or blood. You get off on this." Then someone shoots him.

01:35 By Tom Bramwell

They're looking for "the Atlantis of the sands" apparently - we hear Sully chatting to Drake about it.

01:36 By Tom Bramwell

Lots of cool-looking gameplay, including an amazing bit where he's leaping onto a moving plane on the runway. All the love interests are intact (Chloe!) and he's hanging out the back of a plane and and and. Looks stunning.

01:36 By Tom Bramwell

November 1st innit. That's the end of that. "Pretty amazing guys," says Jack Tretton. "We're going to sell a few copies of that bad boy."

01:37 By Tom Bramwell

He's now introducing Insomniac Games - "creator of some of the most iconic franchises on PlayStation". Marcus Smith is here to demonstrate "their next great masterpiece", Resistance 3.

01:38 By Tom Bramwell

"The Chimera have won the war, humans face extinction, and everything looks pretty bleak." For this demo, our hero Joseph has just embarked on a last-ditch journey to take the fight to the Chimera. We're seeing stuff from St. Louis tonight.

01:38 By Tom Bramwell

Joseph's going to join forces with local resistance to take down a Chimera dropship. "Put on your glasses," says Smith.

01:39 By Tom Bramwell

Right then, big old FPS in a street. Dropship, flying debris, a knackered bus, etc. Joseph's shooting at floating drone things in the sky, firing shotguns at guys in buildings, legging it around...

01:40 By Tom Bramwell

He's using a gun to fire through walls using infrared, and to bust the little portable energy shields the Chimera are using. Now we're going to jump ahead in the demo - apparently the ambush has gone bad and the player has to pick up a power core and leg it.

01:40 By Tom Bramwell

There's a big old Chimera walker thing with spindly War of the Worlds legs stomping around the level as Joseph ascends ramps made from the rubble of shattered buildings. The WOTW monstie skewers one of his pals.

01:41 By Tom Bramwell

That's that. That was "three minutes of Resistance 3 in 3D".

01:42 By Tom Bramwell

Back to Jack. "The combination of Move and 3D creates a completely new gaming experience," he says of Resistance 3. Today he's announcing a Resistance 3 Sharpshooter bundle - Sept 6 $150 - with Eye, Sharpshooter, Move, the game and the navigation controller.

01:42 By Tom Bramwell

Another couple of special collections being announced. God of War Origins Collection is a remastered 3D version of Ghosts of Sparta and Chains of Olympus.

01:43 By Tom Bramwell

We'll also get The Ico & Shadow of the Colossus Collection. Remastered in High Definition. Both that and the GOW thing will be out in September and in 3D.

01:43 By Tom Bramwell

"Content has just been one of the barriers for consumers with 3D. The other is price. We're going to make the entrance into 3D more affordable for everyone." Two new 3D hardware products being introduced.

01:44 By Tom Bramwell

Introducing a PlayStation-branded 3D display. 24-inch display "developed specifically" so there's a cheapish entry point to 3D content. Perfect for dorm rooms, etc, reckons Jack.

01:44 By Tom Bramwell

Ooh, it does a clever thing where you can do split-screen... without splitting the screen. Two players watch from different angles and see a different image.

01:45 By Tom Bramwell

As in, full-screen.

01:45 By Tom Bramwell

They're also doing an affordable pair of 3D glasses, which will be bundled with the special 3D TV, Resistance 3 and a six-foot HDMI cable - and the whole bundle will be for $499.

01:46 By Oli Welsh

01:46 By Tom Bramwell

Time to talk about PlayStation Move. It's "adding more value and deeper engaging experiences" says Jack. 2K Sports are here to show how it's doing that. Wotcha got boys?

01:47 By Tom Bramwell

We're seeing NBA 2K12. Apparently the response to 2K11 was "overwhelming", with over 5m copies sold.

01:47 By Tom Bramwell

New feature we're being shown is called NBA on the Move. You target a player you want to pass to with PS Move.

01:48 By Tom Bramwell

The idea is to make accessible basketball simulation so anyone can pick it up. Heh, they're bringing out Kobe Bryant to demo it.

01:49 By Tom Bramwell

"Which team are you?" says Kobe. "I'm the Heat, man, what do you think?" says the developer. Kobe says that's "rude" and takes the remote off him.

01:50 By Tom Bramwell

He concedes a point. "I ain't worried about it. It's part of the game." Kobe runs up the other end and fouls someone.

01:50 By Tom Bramwell

"You know what, man? This game looks a little too real." The dev does a three-pointer as the Heat. "That's just not realistic at all. Forget everything I just said."

01:51 By Tom Bramwell

Kobe runs up the other end and scores. "All jokes aside, this is so realistic it's frightening. When I got here I went in the back and played it, and it's actually running the triangle offense better than we were last year. So kudos to you."

01:51 By Tom Bramwell

Game's out on October 4th. "NBA 2K12 will change the game." That might be helpful as I have no idea what just happened.

01:52 By Tom Bramwell

Jack's back! He's introducing a new Move title from the makers of Sports Champions. Here's Medieval Moves: Dead Man's Quest.

01:52 By Tom Bramwell

It's a fantasy action adventure game played with Move. Swordfighting, archery etc.

01:53 By Tom Bramwell

There's no inventory system and weapon selection - you select your weapon based on Move gestures. For example, when he wants to switch from sword to bow he just reaches back into his quiver for an arrow then pulls it out and does a bow gesture.

01:54 By Tom Bramwell

Now he's opening a door through some convoluted mechanic I didn't listen to the description of. No idea what's going on really. It's in 3D though.

01:55 By Tom Bramwell

Still wandering around firing arrows at skeletons. The art style is pretty cutesy, almost Maximo-esque.

01:55 By Tom Bramwell

He reveals a secret path by shooting explosive barrels. He could use his grapple hook to go through the secret path.

01:56 By Tom Bramwell

That'd be nice.

Marshall2008 says:

Poor Tom, maybe they will get something exciting on to wake him up.

01:57 By Tom Bramwell

Medieval Moves: Deadmund's Quest is out this autumn. Enough of that.

01:57 By Tom Bramwell

Jack's back and rabbiting on about PS Move some more. Loads of games support it, doncha know!

01:58 By Tom Bramwell

We're going to see inFamous 2 now, which is out tomorrow in the US and Friday in the UK. You can read our review elsewhere on the site.

01:58 By Oli Welsh

01:59 By Tom Bramwell

Lots of shots of Cole running around flinging electricity at gangmembers in New Marais. This does look awesome, although it seems odd to be spending a few minutes with a game that's out tomorrow...

01:59 By Tom Bramwell

I'm only kidding. The UC3 demo was wicked - can't wait for them to wrap up so I can go play that.

MeBrains says:

a strange comment to single out tom...

02:00 By Tom Bramwell

This autumn we'll get a unique UGC experience for inFamous 2 - create online missions using PS Move.

02:01 By Tom Bramwell

We'll get more Move support for LittleBigPlanet 2 later this year - September.

02:01 By Tom Bramwell

Now they're going to show us Starhawk from Lightbox Interactive and Sony Santa Monica.

02:02 By Tom Bramwell

A dude is trudging through a post-apocalyptic-looking desert. "Every day is a fight to survive." Lots of men shooting one another. Driving buggies around. Transforming robot hawk things.

02:02 By Tom Bramwell

It's all CG but demonstrates the concept pretty well - warfare from planets out into space.

02:03 By Tom Bramwell

Jack says there's one Worldwide Studios title he gets loads of emails about...

02:03 By Tom Bramwell

A Parisian-looking cityscape. Woo it's Sly Raccoon!

02:04 By Tom Bramwell

He's leaping around rooftops at night perching on spires, running from cutesy helicopters, riding down ziplines and generally being awesome.

02:04 By Tom Bramwell

Sly Cooper: Thieves in Time!

02:04 By Tom Bramwell

Coming 2012. Woo! Give me that!

02:05 By Oli Welsh

02:05 By Tom Bramwell

Jack's back and introducing CCP, the guys who made EVE Online. Hilmar Petursson is here. "I come from Iceland, a place known for spewing volcanic dust that disrupts your transatlantic flights." Dust 514 is a PlayStation 3 exclusive, he says.

02:06 By Tom Bramwell

"We're taking a console shooter and connecting it directly to a PC MMO. Together Dust and Eve Online will connect... and share the same supercomputer."

02:06 By Tom Bramwell

They're also extending the experience to NGP. "How about I show you what you will be doing next summer?"

02:07 By Tom Bramwell

Here we go then. We're in a dropship holding a gun staring out at some sort of military installation on a grey planet. We move down and hide behind cover, firing at sentries among crates and dropships.

02:08 By Tom Bramwell

"They told us we had no chance," says a gravelly voiceover. "That we were fools to even try." The game is flicking between various ships and objects and saying how much their ISK value is. Out in space we see regular Eve.

02:08 By Tom Bramwell

"On this battlefield, one shot can change the course of history - and you're going to be the one who takes it." A planetary cannon just fired at a ship floating past in space. "One universe, one war," is the motto.

HI JACK. Dust closed beta later this year and a full release in spring 2012.

02:09 By Tom Bramwell

2K and Irrational Games are up next with a BioShock Infinite demo. We're talking to Elizabeth - she asks us to promise that if it comes to it we will not let HIM take her back, whoever he is.

02:10 By Tom Bramwell

God this just looks more beautiful every time I see it. Lots of screeching, sky rails, beautiful architecture, those blue skies, zeppelins...

02:10 By Tom Bramwell

Lots of applause for that one.

02:11 By Tom Bramwell

Ken Levine is on stage. "We've been doing a lot of press for BioShock Infinite recently, and I did an interview a few months ago, and I kind of tend to speak my mind... And let's say I expressed some scepticism about the very concept of motion control, and I may have said some uncharitable things about PlayStation Move."

02:12 By Tom Bramwell

Then a few days later, he says, Sony called to speak to him about it. "I expected a lot of gnashing of teeth and nervousness, and instead what they said was, 'Ken, we want to make you a believer.'"

02:13 By Tom Bramwell

Sony told him that they just wanted to remove the barrier to entry for a world like BioShock. "What if they could play your game? What would you wager if you could get them on board... without sacrificing anything?" And he replied that he wouldn't wager us - the people who play with real controllers.

02:13 By Tom Bramwell

But once he got past the initial anxiety about it, he realised there were other ways to interact with the world. "We're going to have PlayStation Move on BioShock Infinite, and the exciting part is we're just starting to get our head around what that can mean."

02:14 By Tom Bramwell

Ooh, he's talking about another game they're kicking around... "and recently we found the right home for it". He holds up an NGP. So Irrational's making an NGP game then, but no details yet. Bye Ken.

02:15 By Tom Bramwell

Jack says consumers who buy BioShock Infinite on PS3 will get the original BioShock on the same Blu-ray disc.

02:15 By Tom Bramwell

They're also doing an exclusive game mode in Saints Row The Third, he says, switching to THQ.

02:15 By Tom Bramwell

Next game is the Star Trek game from Paramount and Bad Robot. A co-op action adventure timed with the next JJ Abrams film next year.

02:16 By Tom Bramwell

Not sure Jack or anyone's actually said NGP out loud yet - I've just been using it.

zythe says:

"NGP" being used a lot... maybe using it as a full name?

02:16 By Tom Bramwell

There's going to be a Move-enabled prequel on PSN too for Star Trek.

02:16 By Tom Bramwell

Let's see some footage. OK.

02:17 By Oli Welsh

02:17 By Tom Bramwell

This looks pretty swish but quite dark. Lots of nice set-pieces. "Coming 2012."

02:18 By Tom Bramwell

Sorry, yes, the NGP Irrational game is also in the BioShock universe.

02:18 By Tom Bramwell

Now we're switching up to EA Sports and SSX, which has an exclusive level on PS3 based on Mount Fuji with 10 runs.

02:19 By Tom Bramwell

Need for Speed: The Run will come on a special Blu-ray disc featuring seven exclusive supercars - including the Bugatti Veyron.

02:19 By Tom Bramwell

Battlefield 3 on PS3 "will be bigger than any other". You'll get Battlefield 1943 on the same disc.

02:20 By Tom Bramwell

"And of course EA will be supporting our Next Generation Portable as well." Jack's introducing Kaz Hirai next.

02:20 By Tom Bramwell

"How about that tie he's wearing? Round of applause for a tie."

02:21 By Tom Bramwell

Hirai is talking about the connected experience across a bunch of platforms. "We learned a lot during the recent outage of PlayStation Network, and one of the most important things we learned was about the trust and support of our consumers."

02:21 By Tom Bramwell

"We thank you for that." He says the network experience is also vital for the mobile gaming experience, as they learned with PSP.

02:22 By Tom Bramwell

"The question is, how do we deliver a PlayStation level experience to a wider audience?" The answer is PlayStation Suite, he says. It's the thing that spans other platforms inc mobile.

02:22 By Tom Bramwell

We'll get more information on PS Suite "in the very near future". Hirai reckons it will be a gateway drug for people on cellphones etc to get into PlayStation consoles.

02:23 By Tom Bramwell

PlayStation Portable "has been a home console-like experience in the palm of your hand" and so too will NGP be. He's listing its various features.

02:24 By Tom Bramwell

He's going to show NGP next. "What you've come to know as NGP is officially known as PlayStation Vita."

02:24 By Tom Bramwell

"So, what does Vita mean? Vita means life, and we're confident that PlayStation Vita will be the first product that truly blurs those lines between PlayStation entertainment and your real life."

02:25 By Tom Bramwell

Things are getting pretty blurry for me too Kaz. Can you get on with it?

02:26 By Tom Bramwell

He's still recapping the console's features. "Of course... this requires the nation's fastest broadband network." He says they're partnering with AT&T as an exclusive partner in the US... and loads of people laughed! Eek.

02:26 By Tom Bramwell

Kaz looked a little surprised by the reaction there.

02:27 By Tom Bramwell

There's a feature called Party where you can chat together over PSN whatever game you're in.

02:27 By Tom Bramwell

There's also a social networking feature called Near for comparing trophies and doing other "social connection" bits. We'll get more specifics on them in "the very near future".

02:28 By Tom Bramwell

Here's Scott Rohde from Worldwide Studios to show some games on NGP - sorry, Vita.

02:28 By Tom Bramwell

"We believe this device will change how people think about portable gaming," says Rohde.

02:29 By Tom Bramwell

We're going to see a brief demo of Sony Bend's Uncharted: Golden Abyss. They started working on it around two years ago, says the developer.

02:29 By Tom Bramwell

They're showing it using an over the shoulder camera shot of the developer holding a Vita, rather than direct-feed. So yes, we're getting a shakycam demo of Uncharted Vita...

02:30 By Tom Bramwell

Still, it does look very good. There's dynamic lighting and sexy water, and Nathan Drake looks and moves like Nathan Drake.

02:31 By Tom Bramwell

We're seeing how the game uses a mixture of traditional controls and touch. "We wanted to make sure fans of Uncharted could pick up and play it using controls they were used to, but in places where it made sense we've incorporated PlayStation Vita controls."

02:31 By Tom Bramwell

You're not locked into either set of controls. When dangling from ruins you could use the stick to cross or drag your finger on the touch-screen. Same for jumping - use the X button, or tap on the ledge for a cinematic leap.

02:32 By Tom Bramwell

Ooh, that's nice - if you drag your finger across a series of stones and ledges you can "paint" them to store up some movements, which Drake then performs smoothly without further input.

02:32 By Tom Bramwell

Here's some combat now, really benefitting from dual analogue sticks.

02:33 By Tom Bramwell

Drake's in cover, leans out with left shoulder and fires with right. Ah dual analogue, how we love you.

02:33 By Oli Welsh

02:34 By Oli Welsh

(Check it out - they colour co-ordinated the entire stage with Kaz's outfit.)

02:34 By Tom Bramwell

Big cheers for that demo, and fair play - Uncharted looks great as ever.

02:34 By Tom Bramwell

Now we're going to see a "social action RPG" which is "directly compatible with PS3". It's called Ruin. Idle Minds and Sony San Diego are on stage.

02:35 By Tom Bramwell

Not all of them, obviously. Ruin is an RPG, says the dev, and their goal was to offer everything you'd expect - loot, multiple character classes and things like that. But they started with combat.

02:36 By Tom Bramwell

Ruin's a sort of isometric game where the character's hacking and slashing away on a bridge. Looks a bit like Diablo.

02:36 By Tom Bramwell

"In Ruin, other players are your rivals." You can "help, hinder or even harm them" and you interact with them through PlayStation Network, Twitter and other social channels.

02:37 By Tom Bramwell

On-screen we're attacking a rival's lair, which is protected by a dungeon. A player's success in the game enhances and improves their lair and dungeon.

02:38 By Tom Bramwell

Sounds like the idea is that you are constantly digging out your Vita to fend people off. Now we're going to see the PS3 version, which allows you to pick up exactly where you left off. Lots of applause for seeing this in action.

02:39 By Tom Bramwell

The idea of taking the experience with you from the coach to your commute seamlessly by storing data in the cloud has been doing the rounds for years - hopefully Ruin will make a success of it. It did look fun, although the demo was a bit stilted on stage.

02:39 By Tom Bramwell

Now we're going to see some ModNation Racers action for PlayStation Vita. "It's an entirely new experience. It's not a port of ModNation PS3 or PSP."

02:41 By Tom Bramwell

You can use the touch-screen to draw the route for your track. He does a little doodle and jumps straight in. There's also a more detailed 3D editor with touch controls. He's laying down jumps and stuff really easily.

02:41 By Tom Bramwell

It also uses the back touch panel - touch it and it inserts terrain depth variation, sprouting up mountains the longer you hold it. You can then depress the land by pressing the front panel.

02:42 By Tom Bramwell

And now he jumps into the race on his track.

02:43 By Tom Bramwell

Round of applause. "We have a ton of great features we're going to share with you in the months to come... But owners of ModNation Racers on PS Vita will have access to the more than 2m tracks and cars" made by ModNation Racers' PS3 community.

02:44 By Tom Bramwell

Scott Rohde's back. "We are very proud to show that cross-platform interaction is functioning in so many different ways so early in the development of PlayStation Vita." There'll be lots more of this, says Rohde, including the cross-play feature with WipEout 2048.

02:44 By Tom Bramwell

WipEout will be at launch and the cross-play functionality is being demoed here tonight - as it was when we saw the game a little while ago. Check the preview elsewhere on the site.

02:45 By Tom Bramwell

LittleBigPlanet on Vita, meanwhile, will use a bunch of the system's unique features in unison, including touch and so forth. The trailer's up now.

02:46 By Tom Bramwell

Touch controls in the games you create, Sixaxis tilting, rear-panel object-manipulation, new MP modes (a sort of turn-based table footbal), multi-touch for two players on the same screen, and online stuff. In the editor someone draws a bridge with their finger. You can also snap photos and use the things you photograph.

02:48 By Tom Bramwell

We're going to see a demo of Street Fighter X Tekken for Vita next. "OOOOOH," goes a large section of the crowd.

02:48 By Tom Bramwell

Woo, it's Yoshinori Ono! I love this guy.

02:49 By Tom Bramwell

"I'm sure most of you are aware of the SF X Tekken project, which we announced for development last year. I'm here today to give you the latest info on this game. Today's announcement is that we have also decided to move forward with a PlayStation Vita version of SF X Tekken."

02:50 By Tom Bramwell

"We're also happy to announce that in collaboration with Sucker Punch, Cole from inFamous will be joining the fighters of Street Fighter X Tekken."

02:50 By Tom Bramwell

"Since we're all here, why don't we check out what kind of damage Cole does in the game?" Cue the on-screen demo. "Here's the latest version of the game running in real time."

02:51 By Tom Bramwell

Ono loads it up. Cole is tingling with electricity. "We feel that Cole's unique electrical moves and flying attacks will fit nicely into our game." You can do simple touch-screen controls or obviously play with the buttons. Ono is giggling because he's getting kicked around.

02:52 By Tom Bramwell

"So you have a good idea here of just how development is going..." Applause. "So as you can see, we already have the game up and running on the PlayStation Vita. It won't be long before you're able to play the game for yourself and get a feel for what it's like."

02:53 By Tom Bramwell

Scott Rohde's back and saying thanks. "This is just a sample of what's coming to PS Vita. In all there's more than 80 titles in development."

02:53 By Tom Bramwell

We're going to see a montage video of Vita games before Kaz returns. Will he announce the date and price?

02:54 By Tom Bramwell

Uncharted! WipEout! Little Deviants! LittleBigPlanet! Sound Shapes! Project: Gravity! Hustle Kings.

02:54 By Tom Bramwell

ModNation Racers! Super Stardust! Project: Ruin! Reality Fighters!

02:55 By Tom Bramwell

Hot Shots Golf! Shinobido 2: Tales of the Ninja! Virtua Tennis 4! Dynasty Warriors.

02:55 By Tom Bramwell

Dragon's Crown! And that's it for the montage. Time for Kaz.

02:56 By Tom Bramwell

Here we go... "The holiday season this year."

02:56 By Tom Bramwell

Two models at launch - WiFi and 3G/WiFi. WiFi-only will retail for $249 / 249 Euro, 24,980 yen. Mad cheers.

02:57 By Tom Bramwell

The 3G/WiFi model will retail for $299 / 299 Euro, 29,980 yen.

02:57 By Tom Bramwell

So we don't have a solid date yet, but at least we have a price. Perhaps the opposite of what some people expected.

02:58 By Tom Bramwell

"With PlayStation Vita, the whole world is in play," says Kaz. "Thanks for your time."

02:58 By Tom Bramwell

Not over though. Jack Tretton is back. "Great news on Vita but I can't believe Kaz made fun of my tie. I was tempted to bust out that Ridge Racer line but I like my job too much." OH ZING.

02:59 By Tom Bramwell

He's wrapping up. "Thanks for your time and attention, but the best is yet to come."

03:00 By Tom Bramwell

And we're out, by way of yet another montage of game footage. Thanks everyone! See you tomorrow at 9am PST / 5pm BST for Nintendo and Project Cafe mentalism.
