Sony's Gamescom 2011 press conference Finished

Sony's Gamescom 2011 press conference has come to an end.

A global PS3 price cut was announced, as was a new, cheap, entry-level PSP.

Sony's PlayStation 3D telly - the one that can display two pictures at once - is coming to Europe.

PlayStation Vita dominated the conference. Ubisoft's Vita line-up was revealed, as were Vita games Resistance: Burning Skies and Escape Plan.

Skype and Foursquare will definitely be on PS Vita, and all Vita games will be sold from the PS Store as well as in shops.

Sony even carved some time out to focus on PlayStation Move, which will welcome exclusive new first-party games Move Fitness and DanceStar Party - made by the SingStar team.

Predictably, Uncharted 3 wowed, courtesy of a new, aeroplane-focused on-stage demo. But Sony did manage to surprised us with Infamous 2: Festival of Blood - a gory, vampire-themed PSN game that may or may not require Infamous 2 to play.

We even got to meet new Sony Europe boss Jim Ryan, who was introduced and welcomed to the stage by the man whose job he inherits on 1st September: Andrew House (he's moving higher up within Sony).

Eurogamer's full, blow-by-blow account of the conference is below.

    With that price cut, I'm going to make a fortune at the bureaux de change!

    PS3 badly needed a pricecut.

  • Claudiov1.0 3 years ago

    @CraugMcG just checked it.. it comes with a game the tv, pair of glasses and hdmi cable... your right
  • God_Octo 3 years ago

    Well, I thought the games were alright, but Sony's pricing is becoming ridiculous. I take it that when they said Europe is an important region, it was because we pay more than everyone else.
  • CraigMcG 3 years ago

    pretty sure its just the tv glasses and game...no ps3, fantastic deal if your right though
  • Claudiov1.0 3 years ago

    @CraigMcG yeah my mistake it doesn´t come with a ps3... your right man..!

  • Dark_Era 3 years ago

    @estell
    looking at the fact you get 2 glasses i think its ok
    though would be better if it was cheaper
  • God_Octo 3 years ago

    Really, 1:1 for the 3D telly? That's not going to happen. I would have said that £349 would have been a better price.
  • JGCypher 3 years ago

    @andijames I have yet to meet someone who actually played Resistance, so, no. Looks like such a generic franchise to me.
  • X201 3 years ago

    That's miles better than some boring cutscene of gameplay video
  • Claudiov1.0 3 years ago

    RESISTANCE 3 is gonna be so awesome...

    @AaronTurner. From the initial point of view, it's obvious you go for the 130 one, but if you dig deeper you'll notice there are more hidden costs with that model (online play is with a fee, no lithium batteries in controllers, the cheapest model is useless for core games who'll want to have a harddrive bigger then 4 gig, ...)

    There is added value on PS3 that the 360 hasn't, from an unbiased consumer point of view, if you take the time to look. And from gamers point. More AAA exclusives coming

  • Claudiov1.0 3 years ago

    sony gave them water.... xD it's for the big suprise and the WHATTTTTTTT after spiting out scene xD
  • kassmageant 3 years ago

    i just wonder WHAT THE HELL takes so long with this last guardian - are devs spacing out looking at the griffon and thinking " DAWWWW, so cute!"?
  • Bertie 3 years ago

    Will it be called David's Cage of Emotion?
  • Claudiov1.0 3 years ago

    BF3 exclusive content..... cmon!!!
  • Chufty 3 years ago

    You buy the more expensive one, because you get what you pay for, right?
  • digoutyoursoul 3 years ago

    yeah tgs for guardian imo. i think we may see david cages game in the form of a teaser
  • Bertie 3 years ago

    Try a CTRL-R refresh if both columns aren't updating. That fixed it for me.
  • Bagpuss 3 years ago

    I know the reasons for the £200 cost, but its still ridicously overpriced for what it is now...

    Lol..do you remember when new consoles launched @ £200 and got cheaper...
  • AaronTurner 3 years ago

    If you look at it from an unbiased consumer point of view, you walk into a shop and you can pick up a console for £130 or £190, both play pretty much the same games, which do you buy?
  • Bertie 3 years ago

    A release date for The Last Guardian would be sumptuous. Something tells me Sony may wait for the Tokyo Game Show for that, though.
  • Chufty 3 years ago

    @Bagpuss

    If you look at it from an unbiased and mature perspective (if that's possible from the internet), you'll see that £215 is good value for what you get from a PS3.
  • AaronTurner 3 years ago

    Right hand column is refreshing, left hand column isn't.

    Boo.
  • BluShock 3 years ago

    *hands up*
  • Dark_Era 3 years ago

    @bagpuss

    i think at this point in time we all know sony over spec'ed(made up word) the ps3, hence why it's still kinda costly. though it being over spec'ed(lol) wasn't and isn't really a bad thing, especially seeing as rival consoles look like they're on their last legs.
  • skowhegan 3 years ago

    Hands up who just googled "proscenium".
  • BluShock 3 years ago

    @Bagpuss - no successor for 360/PS3 is launching imminently so no £100 console from MS/Sony.
  • digoutyoursoul 3 years ago

    @bagpuss yeah but the cells and the blu rayz
  • Claudiov1.0 3 years ago

    @Kassmageant... reminds me of A.... oh wait that's really old...xD
  • Bagpuss 3 years ago

    Still £200 for a PS3 six years into its lifespan....crazy.

    PS2 was what?..£99 at a similar stage..
  • kassmageant 3 years ago

    @Dark_Era



    ok, capcom is completely diffrent story! it almost seems like their thinking something in the lines of: " OK, lets see how little effort we can put in before these idiots stop giving us their money!" : ))
  • Claudiov1.0 3 years ago

    @AaronTurner... well from their stanpoint sony doesn´t do that much profit with current prices, most of the pofit comes from software, so if they did that it would not be good for the company...
  • Dark_Era 3 years ago

    @kassmageant

    I see what you mean, thats hopping publishers like capcom don't ask sony to charge an arm and a leg, lol
  • digoutyoursoul 3 years ago

    @osahi i want one as a pet and i will love him and pet him and stroke him and...
  • digoutyoursoul 3 years ago

    @dunbain i know what you mean but i cant help but feel it would not do the system any harm in attracting potential owners
  • Osahi 3 years ago

    Let's hope we see that cute little gigantic beast from The Last Guardian again. I kinda missed the fella at E3
  • Claudiov1.0 3 years ago

    @Dark_Era... you just saved the world xD

    @digoutyoursoul.... xD
  • AaronTurner 3 years ago

    PS3 prices are still too steep, need to be £50 or £60 cheaper.
  • Dark_Era 3 years ago

    @claudio

    well if it helps. Amazon just let rip that there's gonna be a price drop. lol
  • kassmageant 3 years ago

    @Dark_Era - vita could be good start of new era of downloadable games, something that psp go never became - AAA games on-demand for adequate price - it's all about price system that thy gonna pursuit



    @dunbain



    well, true, after all these games will be only dumbed-down versions of big console games - but vita have lot of interesting hardware features, it's all about what devs gonna pull out with it

  • digoutyoursoul 3 years ago

    no
  • dunbain 3 years ago

    @digoutyoursoul
    Though I think the Vita will have exclusives by default (what other handheld will they release upon), exclusives by and large are bad for the industry and should generally be discouraged.
  • jonbwfc 3 years ago

    Given Battlefield went big at the EA show and this is the only other high profile keynote at GamesCom, surely there's likely to be new Modern Warfare 3 footage?
  • Claudiov1.0 3 years ago

    is anybody feeling slihtly murdery because of the wait xD
  • dunbain 3 years ago

    @kassmageant
    Not being a troll at all, I disagree. Uncharted and Ridge Racer are not enough, and I'm sure we'll see the big guns here, but IF not, it won't be a pretty sight.
  • Dark_Era 3 years ago

    @mumbly

    lol kick off
  • digoutyoursoul 3 years ago

    i am hoping more multiplatform devs take a chance and make exclusive games for vita not just easy ports. mass effect spin off, gta spin off etc
  • Dark_Era 3 years ago

    One thing i am hoping for when VITA is launched is a varying price range for the games. As in from about say £1.99 for ios/android type games to £29.99 for AAA games.(though i doubt AAA games would be that cheap on the vita)
  • mumblyjoe 3 years ago

    Pretty sure kick off is not @ 6pm. Facebook countdown still has an hour too go
  • digoutyoursoul 3 years ago

    i cant wait to get a vita
  • kassmageant 3 years ago

    @Dubain



    after 3ds launch, sony would have to reaaaaally try to make worse launch line-up : P
  • dunbain 3 years ago

    @Dark_Era
    I think people would say, I don't have money yet, and the launch games look crap.
  • Claudiov1.0 3 years ago

    @jassmageant... yeah i mean if the interactivity is part of their strategy, that would probably be a very logical move... dnt worry :)

    @ Dar_Era... that would be awesome... but if they pulled an aplle it would probably cost 999 dollars or something xD
  • kassmageant 3 years ago

    sry for double post ; p
  • Dark_Era 3 years ago

    i wonder what would happen if sony pulled an apple and said, "oh by the way, u can pick up the vita next month at your local retailer"
  • kassmageant 3 years ago

    @Claudiov1.0 - sounds sweet, some good game using inteconectivity and im sold
  • kassmageant 3 years ago

    @Claudiov1.0 - sounds sweet, some good game using inteconectivity and im sold

    @king2001

    so would i, heck i'd put down a full price pre order today
  • dunbain 3 years ago

    Oh man, I'd love a PSThree. Holy shit, I'd buy that in a second.
  • Claudiov1.0 3 years ago

    "anyone" srry :)
  • Claudiov1.0 3 years ago

    Has anybody considered a pack with both the ps3 and the vita??
  • kassmageant 3 years ago

    sony needs to put CD-I emulator in this to remain competitive with 3ds
  • king2001 3 years ago

    @CharlieStCloud

    I'd live with that!
  • Dark_Era 3 years ago

    might be off topic at the but just booted up the bodycount demo and i have to say, i haven't been wowed, that a bad thing????
  • CharlieStCloud 3 years ago

    @king2001:
    I would be a fairly happy chap to see Sony say, 'hey guys, the PlayStation 3 will be £199 (with a first party game) as of today and the PS Vita shall be £199 (for the Wi-Fi model)'.
  • neosalad 3 years ago

    if Vita had Shenmue 3, then SOLD!
  • Dark_Era 3 years ago

    Thx for the heads up DOLLY, if i leave now i might just get there in time to grap one. lol
  • king2001 3 years ago

    Could both the PS3 and PSVita get a £179.99 price tag?
  • dunbain 3 years ago

    I do wonder what system-sellers they're going to unveil. Sony certainly has bought time for a better launch lineup. Otherwise, it'll be a very ugly game of catchup.
  • Dolly 3 years ago

    Oh and Shenmue 3 obviously.
  • Dolly 3 years ago

    Free Vitas for everyone at EG EXPO!



    You know it makes sense! :D

  • dunbain 3 years ago

    Perhaps they'll lower the price even more (it'd look like desperation, but nonetheless pretty competent damage control at this point.)
  • mumblyjoe 3 years ago

    anyone know if there is a video stream anywhere?
  • Hindle 3 years ago

    I reckon we could get details on David Cages next project.
  • skowhegan 3 years ago

    Prediction: We'll get another Uncharted trailer, another Resistance trailer and Vita for Q1.
  • skowhegan 3 years ago

    At about £20 more than a 3DS, Sony could make Vita sound like good value. Now it's about £100 more, Sony has completely lost that edge.
  • jonbwfc 3 years ago

    or in psHome, I will take a look in psHome first and if quality unwatchable will go to blog
  • markyHD 3 years ago

    Not to detract from EG's coverage, which is always good, but this can be watched LIVE on SCEE's Blog if you prefer to see it unfold as it happens
  • Lee_Morris 3 years ago

    The hardware in the 3DS wasn't worth £230 but the PSV is worth that. The PSV will more than likely launch with a hell of a lot better launch line up as well.

    For reference I bought a 3DS at launch and will line up to pick up a 3GSPSV at midnight.
  • Hotel_Moscow 3 years ago

    wait what are you talking about

    3ds proved that it was a mistake to launch a handheld with
    1.high price point
    2.no games
    3.same name and look as its predecessor


    at such a high price point
  • Lee_Morris 3 years ago

    I thought this kick off at 18:00 BST. Good job I finish at 16:00.

    The question is, do I dare watch this with my new gf coming over for tea tonight? Such bad planning.
  • Bertie 3 years ago

    Sony has got to cut that PS Vita price down. 3DS has just proved what a mistake a high price point is. Put a UK RRP of £170 on it and it'll float. Go lower and it may fly.

    I'm desperate for Sony to make good on the PS3 to PS Vita potential. That unique selling point needs to be aggressively driven; buy a PS Vita game and get the equivalent PS3 game for free so you can take your save on the move.

    Get aggressive, Sony!
  • lcmnick 3 years ago

    I'm prepared for Rip-Off Britain to strike again with Vita.

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

17:38 By Martin Robinson

Hello from Germany! We're all seated in the Gurzenich Köln, which has - I think it's safe to say - the most dazzling light fittings I've seen so far in Cologne.

17:38 By Robert Purchese

Amazon may have leaked the rumoured PS3 Gamescom price cut. £215 for 320GB PS3, £192 for 160GB PS3.

17:41 By Martin Robinson

So, it's Sony's Gamescom conference. After a somewhat underwhelming performance from EA, here's hoping for some genuine news.

17:43 By Martin Robinson

Here's some odds I've made up! 2/1 that Sony announce a price cut for the PS3 (and it looks like Amazon has already jumped the gun on that one), 5/1 that we the PS3 gets some Battlefield 3 exclusives and 10/1 that we get a release date for Vita.

17:44 By Martin Robinson

1000/1 that Gabe Newell saunters on stage to Basshunter's Dota and announces some PS3 exclusivity for the soon to be unveiled sequel. I live in hope.

17:45 By Martin Robinson

Pounding Euro house dims briefly as we get the 15 minute call.

17:47 By Martin Robinson

Every seat in the conference hall had some bottled water on it. Thanks Sony!

17:49 By Martin Robinson

As you've asked, the proscenium in the Gurzenich Köln is one of the better ones I've seen at a games conference venue - just behind the one at this year's Ubi conference at E3.

17:49 By Martin Robinson

Oh sorry, you didn't ask, did you?

17:51 By Martin Robinson

This'll be new SCEE boss Jim Ryan's first conference under the spotlight. Good luck Jim!

17:52 By Martin Robinson

He's been in intensive media training this past week. Imagine it's a bit like that Rocky montage, but more Power Point.

17:55 By Tom Phillips

17:57 By Martin Robinson

Who wants to play a drinking game! Take a shot every time you see a trailer with a gritty dubstep soundtrack.

17:57 By Martin Robinson

I'll play along, but I've only got this bottle of complimentary water to sip.

17:59 By Oli Welsh

I've got some Coke. *burp*

kassmageant says:

if they will confirm diablo 3 for ps3 i swear im gonna smack my xbox, kinect, and ds lite in rage

18:00 By Martin Robinson

EA's John Riccy-tic is standing at the front of the auditorium, scanning the crowd like the sexy fox that he is.

18:01 By Martin Robinson

I think he'd make my list of top ten gaming hunks - keep an eye on the site for that feature soon!

18:02 By Martin Robinson

Ken Levine's number one, obv.

TonyCB says:

no .....'sexy fox' doesn't scan right...will have to remain 'silver fox'

18:06 By Martin Robinson

He's silver and sexy, like a spoon.

Dark_Era says:

OMG lady GAGA, really?

18:07 By Martin Robinson

I can confirm reports that Lady Gaga is being piped out right now. Johnny's trying his hardest not to dance, and this live feed gets camper by the second.

18:08 By Martin Robinson

10 minute delay just announced.

18:08 By Martin Robinson

Go take a slash or top up that whiskey bottle. Or both at the same time, if you're that way inclined.

18:10 By Martin Robinson

At Claudiov0.1's request it's time for some trivia to ease the pain of waiting.

digoutyoursoul says:

what type of wood was the atari 2600 made from?

18:11 By Martin Robinson

Some say mahogany, but I'm not sure. Could anyone who's on something more reliable than a 3G dongle go and ask Wikipedia?

skowhegan says:

Ken Kutaragi, Jack Tretton, Kaz Hirai.
Snog marry avoid?

18:13 By Martin Robinson

Not exactly trivia, but an important question nevertheless.

18:13 By Oli Welsh

I'm pretty sure it was a veneer. Not real wood. I'm sorry.

18:14 By Martin Robinson

Take your seats! It'll be starting shortly!

18:16 By Martin Robinson

One final update on sexy as a spoon silver fox John Riccy-tic - he's deep in conversation, and from this angle and with those over-sized frames he's wearing he looks like a total hipster.

18:17 By Martin Robinson

I'm not just calling him John Riccy-tic because I can never spell his surname. Honest.

18:18 By Martin Robinson

Disembodied voice and a request to switch our phones to silent. Exciting stuff.

18:18 By Martin Robinson

And we're go!

18:19 By Martin Robinson

Uncharted 3, Journey, AC: Revelations and F1 2011 feature in the sizzle reel. No dubstep yet, but you can have a drink anyway.

18:20 By Martin Robinson

Moving on to Vita now - which will play a big part in this conference.

18:20 By Martin Robinson

It's Andrew House!

18:21 By Martin Robinson

Discussing the importance of the European market. Rocking a smart casual look, but he just misses out on the top ten hunks list.

18:22 By Martin Robinson

"We're continually challenging the industry in our connectivity." Indeed.

18:23 By Martin Robinson

An overlook of the services available on PS3 - lovefilm, BBC etc. It's an impressive lot.

18:24 By Martin Robinson

And now on to 3D - perhaps we'll hear some more on the PS 3D TV we first saw at E3.

18:25 By Martin Robinson

"And with a dynamic industry comes a change of leadership." It's the changing of the guard.

18:26 By Martin Robinson

Jim's been a part of PlayStation for 17 years, so he's a good candidate. I'm genuinely excited to see him take the stage.

18:26 By Martin Robinson

Jim Ryan takes the stage!

18:27 By Martin Robinson

Rocking an open-necked look with what's an audacious choice of shirt. He could be troubling the top ten list if he keeps this up.

18:28 By Martin Robinson

Vita's up next - and a look at it's social networking capabilities.

18:28 By Martin Robinson

Reiterating that two SKUs will be available - wi-fi and 3G.

18:29 By Martin Robinson

Near: text chat with friend. LiveArea: comment on your friend's updates etc.

18:29 By Martin Robinson

And now the established social networks - Facebook's got a bespoke app which looks smart, and Twitter and Foursquare feature.

18:30 By Martin Robinson

All Vita games to be available on PlayStation Store.

18:30 By Martin Robinson

Finally, the browser - which again looks clean and smart, making the most of the touch screen.

18:31 By Martin Robinson

In terms of connectivity, the Vita does look impressive. Pity those without 3G though.

18:32 By Martin Robinson

Hmm, that screen does look great for browsing.

18:34 By Martin Robinson

Michael Denny! Not to be confused with lounge musician Martin Denny, who a friend named their cat after.

18:34 By Martin Robinson

Denny's gone for the standard distressed jeans and pale blue shirt look. Standard.

18:34 By Martin Robinson

Doesn't make the list, btw.

18:35 By Martin Robinson

Resistance Burning Skies - the first time we've seen the name.

18:35 By Martin Robinson

Developed by Nihilistic, who are taking to the stage to demo the game.

18:36 By Martin Robinson

We're down to see this later in the week, so expect some impressions soon.

18:36 By Martin Robinson

You play a New York fireman. And that means you get an axe!

18:37 By Martin Robinson

"All the buttons are where they should be, and you can just pick up and play."

18:38 By Martin Robinson

Well, it looks like Resistance. A good looking game, if understandably not as handsome as the PS3 outings.

18:39 By Martin Robinson

Quite an epic skybox as the action moves outside. That reminds me: Resistance 2's skyboxes were gorgeous, weren't they?

18:40 By Martin Robinson

True to Resistance tradition, the weaponry's novel. A few new Chimeran guns show the same kind of imagination that Insomniac bought to the games.

18:41 By Martin Robinson

Short but sweet demo - as I said, we'll be bringing you a full preview later in the week.

18:42 By Martin Robinson

LittleBigPlanet's perfect for the Vita and it's touch controls, says Denny as he stares blankly at the rafters. I think he's distracted by the proscenium.

18:43 By Martin Robinson

Oh, that's really cool - taking photos and using them as textures/objects in LBP Vita.

18:44 By Martin Robinson

It does look charming, but I sense some LittleBigPlanet fatigue out there.

18:45 By Martin Robinson

Reality Fighters now, the game from the Invizimal's devs.

18:45 By Martin Robinson

A very heavy focus on ARG for this game, which we'll see demonstrated now.

18:46 By Martin Robinson

And we'll also get some over-enthusiastic commentary. It's Denny vs. Ryan - they've both been scanned into the game. Who'll win? Place your bets now!

18:47 By Martin Robinson

My money's on Jim Ryan. He's well tonk.

18:47 By Martin Robinson

The fighting's simple stuff on a 2D plane, but the ARG elements are pretty impressive.

18:48 By Martin Robinson

A new IP for Vita now.

18:48 By Martin Robinson

Escape Plan being introduced.

18:49 By Martin Robinson

A black and white aesthetic that's part street art and part bondage gear. Saucy.

18:50 By Martin Robinson

Lil & Laarg are the two main characters, and you've go to help them escape various rooms.

18:50 By Martin Robinson

Cue lots of slapstick puzzling.

18:50 By Martin Robinson

So, is this what happened to Little and Large then?

18:51 By Martin Robinson

Jim Ryan's back on stage now, waving around his mighty hands as he talks about third party games.

18:51 By Martin Robinson

Assassin's Creed game, a new story.

18:52 By Martin Robinson

And FIFA.

18:52 By Martin Robinson

And! BioShock, Dust, Call of Duty, Star Drone and loads more!

18:53 By Martin Robinson

Virtua Tennis 4, by the way, is supposed to be shaping up really well, using the touch screen controls well. Will be having a look later this week.

18:53 By Martin Robinson

And here's one from the leftfield - a new PSP.

18:53 By Martin Robinson

A value model of the old PSP, priced at 99 EUR.

18:54 By Martin Robinson

It's the old pill shape, and it's got slightly cleaner lines. I'd buy that for a dollar. Or 99 of them, anyway.

18:55 By Martin Robinson

Now Move, which Ryan claims has built incredible momentum since its launch last year. I'd beg to differ on that one.

18:56 By Martin Robinson

This'll be a shot in the arm though - FIFA will support Move. How will it work? Here's hoping it'll be like the brilliant Wii versions of PES.

18:56 By Martin Robinson

Move Fitness announced! Coming later this year.

18:57 By Martin Robinson

Lots of bright, breezy and bloody strenuous mini-games, so a little like EA Sports Active. Will it trump the unstoppable Zumba Fitness though?

18:59 By Martin Robinson

Staying with Move now, and looking at the support it's mustered so far. Resistance 3 and the Move pack for LittleBigPlanet are the big-hitters coming in Q4.

19:00 By Martin Robinson

Another sizzle reel, and still no dubstep, sadly. You've probably polished off that bottle of whiskey by now though.

19:01 By Martin Robinson

Ninja Gaiden made a brief appearance in the reel, which could be interesting. Could not be, though.

19:02 By Martin Robinson

Another new game, and it's a casual one this time - DanceStar Party, from the SingStar bods.

19:02 By Martin Robinson

Like SingStar, it'll feature music videos and will be supported by acres of DLC on the PlayStation Store.

19:04 By Martin Robinson

And, like SingStar, you'll be able to upload videos. And watch ones that have been uploading, should you be into that.

19:05 By Martin Robinson

The dubstep has arrived! I'm going to down a bottle of meths to celebrate.

19:06 By Martin Robinson

Um, I don't think this is related to a game in particular. More a dance performance that embodies the possibilities of Move.

19:07 By Martin Robinson

When they first showed off the Atari 2600, did they have to convince people with a conceptual dance routine like this? Send me a video please!

19:07 By Martin Robinson

If you like brown, your time has come: Resistance 3's about to get a showing.

19:09 By Martin Robinson

A trailer, inspired by the Olly Moss designed boxart for the game. It's stylish stuff told in the colours of Soviet propaganda.

19:10 By Martin Robinson

7th September release for that one, in case you'd forgot. Gosh that's come round quick.

19:11 By Martin Robinson

A look at a Sucker Punch game - is this more infamous?

19:11 By Martin Robinson

Yes it is. And guess what! It's zombie DLC!

19:11 By Martin Robinson

Called Festival of Blood, it's out later this year. And it's vampires, not zombies. Sorry!

19:12 By Martin Robinson

Jim Ryan onstage again, flexing his oak-like neck as he tells us about Uncharted 3.

19:13 By Martin Robinson

Always nice to have an excuse to sit and watch some Uncharted. Here's hoping it's something new.

19:15 By Martin Robinson

Which it kind of is. This level was shown behind closed doors at E3 earlier this year. SPOILER: there's a wicked bit with a plane in a minute!

19:16 By Martin Robinson

And Naughty Dog's Olly Maier, if you're keeping score, is wearing a big carnation. He's also got a moustache, the big dandy.

19:17 By Martin Robinson

Interesting bit of trivia which I might have nicked from a site I used to work for: Elena's been spotted wearing a wedding ring in the trailers for Uncharted 3.

19:19 By Martin Robinson

Predictably, it looks amazing. Drake involved in a punch-up in the cargo hold of a plane. This is the bit I like!

19:20 By Martin Robinson

Rousing applause for Uncharted 3, and well deserved.

As seen at E3, it's a 3D TV which can do split-signal gaming for two players.

Coming out this year in Europe, 499 EUR and comes with two pairs of glasses. I'd buy that for a dollar etc...

The PS3 price cut, as predicted. 249 EUR, 249 USD.

As Andrew House points out, with the new budget PSP, the 3D TV and the cheaper PS3 it's a great line-up Sony has. I agree Andrew!

And that's a wrap! I'm off to hunt down Jim Ryan and see if I can give his hulking thighs a squeeze. Thanks everyone!
