Sony E3 conference Finished

Hold onto your hats, ducks, and giant enemy crabs! Tonight is the night that Sony takes a bow at the Culver City Studios in Los Angeles to reveal its future plans to the packed auditorium of slavering videogaming hounds.

This time it's Ellie Gibson who will be on hand to take down every last noteworthy utterance of Phil Harrison and co. as they try and make up for last year's rather regrettable performance.

This year is very much a new era for Sony, being as it is the first post-Kutaragi E3 for the company. At the very least it'll be interesting to see what it has in store after taking an awful lot of flak from certain quarters in recent years.

Having spent the last two pre-E3 conferences talking up what the PlayStation 3 has to offer, now is definitely the time for Sony to deliver on some of its promises.

Of all the three major conferences, this is definitely the one with the biggest weight of expectation upon it. Will Sony buckle under the weight, or come out all guns blazing to answer the doubters?

We'll be there from 19.30 BST to see what the company has in store. Release the hounds...

    @Vandrius: Good point there, and if Gears doesn't demand Windows Vista, I just might get it for PC.
  • SeesThroughAll 7 years ago

    @smoothn00dle:



    By simultaneous worldwide release, they mean it's going to be released at the same time in Japan, US, Australia and Europe. And exclusive means it's exclusive to the PS3.
  • smoothn00dle 7 years ago

    Did kojima said "simultaneous released". Simultaneous mean - existing or occurring at the same time. Sounds like there is two version of MGS4 release. Would Jack Tretton mis-interpret Kojima? Is MGS4 really exclusive?
  • icelt 7 years ago

    Where's the GD status update on F1?!



  • Vandrius 7 years ago

    Okay, I'll state it again for the slightly silly people out there.



    A game that comes out on ONE CONSOLE /and/ the PC is not an exclusive.



    Bioshock is not a true exclusive, for example.



    Now, consider:

    A significant number of the 360's supposed exclusives are also on PC, albeit not PS3.

    The majority of PS3 exclusives are PS3 only - no PC.



    So, personally, I think people like myself are in the best position:

    PS3+PC



    I get everything I want, bar Halo, and that's questionable given the number of good PC shooters (for reference, I don't like shooters on consoles as a rule)



    That said, I won't deny it cost me a pretty penny, but I save on a HDTV because I use my nice widescreen monitor. :-)

    In Japan Nintendo is the king, undoubtedly, on software and hardware fronts, I agree and apologize for the error in my deep analysis :)



    However, I am not sure if PS3 will outsell Wii anytime soon. Maybe after couple of years.



    @old skool



    Definitely a question of lost in translation. My native language is not English.
  • old_skool 7 years ago

    @spongebob



    Erm, my bad, I guess it was lost in translation ? :-o



    Anyway, the Wii won't shift more hardware units than the ps3, but I guess that wouldn't matter to Nintendo as they'll probably still make more money than Sony at the end of the day.
  • CallousB 7 years ago

    " Wii is currently selling like hotcakes, but the software sales are bad."



    I'm not sure about the west... but it was announced last week in Japan that the Wii has the highest software attach rate of any console since 1996.
  • Xerx3s 7 years ago

    Nearly 100 games in the works and more to come. "Epic's Unreal Tournament 3 is confirmed as a PS3 exclusive this year."



    Midway PR seem under the impression that it will launch on the pc. Guess the where last to know.

    @Steroyd



    Your internet suck man.



    Buy a new one.

  • spongebob 7 years ago

    @old skool



    How are you disagreeing with me? You are basically repeating what I just said, which is that Wii is currently selling like hotcakes, but the software sales are bad. The thing you're wrong about is the claim that the so called hardcore gamers are the core customers of Wii at the moment. That's not right. That might have been correct for the first few weeks but currently Wii is selling best to families, kids and young audiences. Sure, hardcore gamers are there as well, but they don't make the figures Nintendo has managed to come up with Wii or DS.



    I also stated that people who are looking for casual gaming experience (say, Wii Play or Wii Fit) will be the ones who don't buy that many other games. So, even there our views were the same from the get go. From my first-hand personal experience many families with kids buy games consoles (say PS2) and a few games (maybe Buzz or SingStar) and the kids treat them as any other toy. They play with them for a while, go back to them every once in a while, but they're not so keen on collecting 100 games that rack up great scores on Metacritic.com. This is why Wii sells. It's the ultimate, cheap family console gaming toy solution. You get a few minigame collections for the kids and you're golden. It's easy to understand and it's lots of fun.
  • Steroyd 7 years ago

    The trick in Microsoft's bag is that they haven't revealed all they have for the year 2008 unlike Sony did to some degree at the conference in E3 this year.



    I think Sony announced all their titles that are coming in this fiscal year i.e till March 2008, such as the ommision of a few titles, like 8 days, Getaway, Afrika, Socom 4, Wipeout next gen and a bunch of others.



    Although saying that i missed a chunk of the conference because my internet crashed. :'(



    I think Socom Confrontation got announced as did Wipeout HD, man i need trailers for these quick.
  • Vic 7 years ago

    Blue Dragon was flop in Japan (the market it was focused on). It'll be interesting to see if Lost Odyssey is the same.
  • ronuds 7 years ago

    "And that's a good thing all of the sudden because....? "



    You took my statement completely out of context. Good job.



    I was making a comment on top of someone elses comment that the ps3 has so much to look forward to next year and the xbox doesn't.

  • old_skool 7 years ago

    @spongebob



    Well , I disagree because:



    1)The Wii is initially selling well because of its low price, the people buying it NOW mostly are the HARDCORE

    2) Eventually interest will fade because of its lack of processing power and small library of games

    3)I hate to say it and I'll probably be labeled anti-Nintendo for this but fitness games are a fad, just like cooking games, you get tired of it and you won't want another

    4)Because of point number one it will saturate the hardcore market very quickly

    5)There isn't much 3rd party support

    6)the 3rd party games are mostly multi-format and looks a bit crap

    8)The casual gamers are playing , guess what, the ps2!



    As for Microsoft they shot themselves in the foot with their hardware failures. The fencesitters will wait until the revised hardware comes out, so from now till whenever that happens they won't shift alot of consoles. They'll come 2nd in North America but everywhere else they'll end up 3rd.

  • spongebob 7 years ago

    The trick in Microsoft's bag is that they haven't revealed all they have for the year 2008 unlike Sony did to some degree at the conference in E3 this year.



    So, let's not underestimate their power of bribing people to do exclusives for them. And by the looks of it Halo Wars, Alan Wake and few others are going to be released in 2008.



    Sony needs to concentrate on what they did best on PS2 and what eventually led to their dominance on that generation: diversity. They had basically the best titles (except FPS, which went to MS) on all fronts. They had quirky, weird titles. Experimental titles. RPG, sports, driving. Games with gimmicky controllers. They were bold and developers loved that.



    If they try to outplay Microsoft in their game of "games for big boys" they will fail. They should have a go at that, but not try to make it their new motto. Microsoft has carved a rather nice marketplace for themselves, something along the lines of "male PC gamers who converted to consoles". They are playing their field extremely well, even if it's getting boring from a gamer's side. Well, from a gamer's who likes some variety.



    Nintendo is too arrogant after inventing the perfect casual gaming hardware (both home and handheld) and they can't be bothered with diversifying their software line-up. They just blindly believe (and probably rightly so) that they have their own marketplace, just like MS has theirs with X360, and they just need to concentrate on few safe franchises to keep investors and stockholders happy.



    All in all, Sony is the only company that can really make a difference and also make many gamers with more varied gaming taste happy. It's just up to them to play their cards right. Currently they're trying too much and shooting in all directions at the same time instead of keeping things more simple in some areas and concentrating on things that really count. New PSP that's lighter and has video output? That's rubbish and waste of time. Home? Looks way too cumbersome.
  • GamesConnoisseur 7 years ago

    X360 has the best exclusive this side of christmas in my view, I am just glad that I also have PS3 especially more so for the other side of christmas!



    'Its all about the games, stupid!'

    Consumers will be mainly not so aware of E3, it is the hardcore who analyse the news, vid and screenshots but these are not what win the console superority. Wii will do very well, if X360 continue to edge PS3 in USA for sales up to next year then it will be tough for PS3 to really dominate as it have for PS2. But Blu-ray as observed by many others was the millstone is now the holy grail for PS3, in that when Blu-Ray wins the format war then it will be seen more as cheap next gen player.



    This gen you really can't miss one platform at your peril!
  • Avaloner 7 years ago

    @Vic so you consider only sequels as being good games? Microsoft has Halo 3, Blue Dragon, Lost Odyssey, PGR4, Mass Effect, the next Splinter Cell and Bioshock coming in the next few months. Now its a race to the holidays and half the games you mentioned will not be appearing before Christmas.



    @ Varsity Nah it would be more realistic to believe that they did not mention it because it has not been modified. Its like saying that 'increasing battery life' implies that current battery life is crap.
  • ronuds 7 years ago

    "If that was Sony "not saying much" then Microsoft whispered and Nintendo said nothing !"





    I said Sony's was the best, but that none of them were that impressive overall... especially when you think back to past E3's.



    @ Penguin - please stop gushing over the ps3. MS only showed 1 game they had slated for 2008... that doesn't mean there aren't a million more on the way. MS concentrated on '07 only. Plus, half of the so-called "exclusives" for the PS3 are only timed exclusives... mostly because they would run up against games like Halo and GTA4 on the XBOX.



    Let's at least stick to the facts here.

  • Vic 7 years ago

    FFS! How long is 9 months?!



    PS3 will be dominant in 2008, for the simple fact that there are a ton of system sellers scheduled for the beginning of the year.



    Nintendo needs to get a move on also.
  • SeesThroughAll 7 years ago

    Just filter out whoever refers to others as fanboys, that'll make it easy to see who keeping the discussion reasonable.
  • Varsity 7 years ago

    It's very instructive looking in the profiles of people posting questionably-reasoned comments. Forum activity and Friends say a lot. :-)
  • penguin_overlord 7 years ago

    There are too many fanboys on this discussion already. The problem is they keep calling others fanboys as well.
  • Vic 7 years ago

    @Avaloner



    Over the next 9 months. Sony has all the major franchises - FF XIII, MGS4 and GT5, while MS only has Halo. Plus Sony also has more first-party games in development. Personally, I'm interested in Hard Rain, Wipeout, The Getaway, Afrika and SOCOM.
  • penguin_overlord 7 years ago

    @Hansi320



    I think the PS3 is expensive if you just want a games machine but amazing value of you want a hi-def DVD player as well. Hopefully, tomorrow's price drop will go some way to fixing this. I already have a PS3 so need no convincing.
  • old_skool 7 years ago

    "Anyway, conference wasn't bad... best of the 3, but that's not saying much."



    If that was Sony "not saying much" then Microsoft whispered and Nintendo said nothing !
  • penguin_overlord 7 years ago

    @spongebob



    I sort of agree with you. I do think the Wii will be the biggest seller because of its mainstream appeal. I also agree that game sales for it will be low as the mainstream audience are not as likely to buy a new game every month like hardcore gamers. Many are more than happy with 2-3 games.



    But I don't agree that the 360 will dominate for a few years before the PS3 overtakes it. I think the PS3 will overtake 360 sales by Christmas 2008. Microsoft are pinning a lot on Halo 3 this year but what do they have next year? At least the PS3 has Killzone 2 and FFXIII and there will be others.
  • Varsity 7 years ago

    "But I would have much rather seen a vast improvement in the controls (especially that ghastly thumb stick) rather than all the other fluff such as TV out (which should have been there since day one)."



    Who says they haven't been improved? It's not like Sony would admit that the current version is bad.
  • 7 years ago

    @penguin_overlord



    I don't think the PS3 is too expensive. It's a lot of money for a gaming console, yes.



    But if you look at the whole package it reallt is kida cheap. At least I think so.

    There is so much that is standard on the PS3 that are add-ons on other consoles.



    But, ofc if you don't need the PS3 standards you're paying for stuff you don't use.



    Anyway, in 2-5 years time people will be happy the PS3 standards are included. ;)

  • ronuds 7 years ago

    How will Sony have MGS4 for this holiday when it's not coming out until '08, Penguin? You sound more intelligent when you're not a brainless fanboy. And nobody knows how most of the games you're mentioning will fare seeing as they're original franchises, so it's hard to predict PS3 coming out on top this holiday - and certainly more difficult to claim it as "fact".



    Anyway, conference wasn't bad... best of the 3, but that's not saying much. I'm still a bit disturbed about all of the rubbish "exclusive" talk, but I'm guessing that will all be sorted out shortly.



    I think out of all the games shown, CoD4 stood out the most for me.
  • Avaloner 7 years ago

    @penguin you keep alluding to facts but you mention none. Sony has a good line up this holiday season. I would describe Microsoft's as great.



    And what is with the PSP redesign? Lighter and smaller is good. Faster loading and better battery life is awesome. But I would have much rather seen a vast improvement in the controls (especially that ghastly thumb stick) rather than all the other fluff such as TV out (which should have been there since day one).
  • SeesThroughAll 7 years ago

    it'll become the PSP of home consoles and sell feasibly, but never become what it was supposed to.



    Best analysis ever, well done. :)
  • Hughes. 7 years ago

    FIFA appears on absolutely every format except ones that weren't even on sale, it's an MS exclusive! Fatal fucking Inertia slips on PS3 and "This is as good as exclusive now!!111". Sony has timed exclusives, and "they're not exclusives at all".



    There was plenty of good stuff on show.



    GT5 will melt peoples eyes, just like GT3 did. All the FUD in the world can't stop PS3s flying off shelves when that shows up. Wipeout HD will tickle my tits. Warhawk and SOCOM can be launched from the HD without even needing to put a disc in the machine. Heavenly Sword looks every bit as good as I hoped. MGS4 isn't going anywhere in a hurry, if it ever goes anywhere at all (and let's not forget the XBox version of MGS2 suffered serious slowdown at times, on hardware with twice the power of the PS2, which ran it flawlessly) LBP still looks great. Apart from rather too much multi-platform stuff shoved in the middle there's nowt to complain about there



    And, come September it's a new PSP for me, as well.
  • spongebob 7 years ago

    Here's my analysis of the console gaming future. Morgan Wedbush or whoever can contact me and hire me if they want :)



    Wii will outsell or has outsold all the competitors with their hardware. They can't compete with the software because it's so lackluster at the moment. X360 rules currently the software game. PS3 will eventually play catch up, Wii will do what it can with the inevitable franchise instalments (Mario, Metroid, Zelda) and then it's back to the third place for them (with software sales)



    Wii might win this generation by hardware sales because it's a direct-to-tv family-fun-fitness-multi-toy. It won't shift too many games though because most people are satisfied with the few gimmicky games Nintendo puts out (one of them shipped with the console itself, mind you).



    Second place will go to PS3 if Blu-Ray wins the HD format war, but that will take a few years. In the meanwhile X360 will dominate the second place of hardware sales and completely dominate the software sales.



    PS3 might either do a PS2 eventually and with great exclusives and good conversions (plus the added benefit of Blu-Ray) will claim the second place in hardware sales and the number one position in software sales. Or if all fails, it'll become the PSP of home consoles and sell reasonably well, but will never become what it was supposed to.



    End of analyst transmission.

    This was the quality conference of the three. I'm almost sorry I wasn't posting here, but there was a really good EG Gabbly going on, and it distracted me from E3 comment-thread duties.
  • penguin_overlord 7 years ago

    @Avaloner, this penguin is no fanboy. I'm just looking at the facts. I've owned consoles from all the manufacturers over time and have enjoyed games on each. I was a big fan of Halo 1 and 2 on the Xbox but I'm not going to buy a 360 just to play the third game.



    The fact is that the PS3 has a great line-up this Christmas. It's still too expensive but the new price bracket will help it a lot. One of Sony's strength is that it has a lot of brand loyal customers and if it can convert even a fraction of the huge numbers who buy PS2s than it's going to continue to be a success.
  • Avaloner 7 years ago

    Vic are you serious? Better exclusives this year?!?!
  • SeesThroughAll 7 years ago

  • Vic 7 years ago

    They're waiting for the public reaction on the other announcements. If the games (of which 99% we all already heard about anyway) aren't enough, then they'll have to drop.
  • Calgon 7 years ago

    SeesThroughAll hang on how often do I have to tell "Sony Lovers" and "MS Haters" (such as you) the same thing, this happens once a year for me(well not very often atleast), I think its fair I should have a bit of fun ;) (I agree they are just expensive toys at the end of the day... just the 360 is better value ;) )
  • penguin_overlord 7 years ago

    Microsoft's lead is not so great. Nintendo are proving that already with the Wii. Within 12 months of launch, the Wii will outsell the 360. I don't expect the PS3 to achieve the same because of the price and the fact it doesn't appeal to the Wii's mainstream audience BUT there is every chance the PS3 will sell more than the 360 this Christmas. The 360 has Halo 3, Bioshock, MSR and Mass Effect sure but the PS3 has Lair, Haze, Unreal Tournament, Ratchett, Warhawk and MGS4. That's a big line-up and MGS4 alone will see the PS3's sales rocket in Japan.

  • Avaloner 7 years ago

    penguin_overlord is a fanboy because:



    1) He criticized one system and praised the other without making any arguments to substantiate his claims.



    2) He used agressive words like 'vengeance' and 'beat'



    3) He used the word 'fanboys' to refer to those who do not agree with what he is claiming.



    4) He did a statement which heralds itself as the absolute truth while describing his opinion as fact.
  • spongebob 7 years ago

    Who cares who beats who in this silly thing we call "console war". Ideal situation would be that all consoles had huge piles of awesome games. The situation right now, however, is that only X360 has a small pile of good games, Wii has a few and PS3 has couple.

  • penhalion 7 years ago

    Infamous looks like a darker version of Crackdown. In fact that's pretty much what it is even down to the increase your powers and do good or evil stuff. The killzone trailer looks less impressive with each watch sadly, though to balance it out I should say the Halo 3 trailer started out looking less than impressive to begin with.



    New PSP sounds ok but what's the betting they shaft europe on the price. 199 dollars should see us getting it at 100-120 pounds. I bet it clocks in at nearer 200 for some stupid reason or is 199 euro.



    Kotaku guy raving about GT (thats Gran Tourismo not Grand theft) so presumably he hasn't heard of Forza then! The two are equal in quality so why rave one over the other. I'm starting to think Sony paid them off or something. Earlier they had the killzone story deliberately miss labled so that it stayed top of their site for hours even after newer stories came in.



    Ok then disapointed by all three press conferences :)

  • y2rich 7 years ago

    A hell of a lot of games that are either very close copies of games on other systems (Infamous looking like a cross between Crackdown and any generic be good or evil game and Killzone 2 looking like an FPS Gears of War), and a lot of the exact same content from the 360 presentation.



    MGS4 did look good, but for how long will it be a PS3 exclusive. Konami have already hinted at the fact that with the current PS3 userbase they're going to struggle to make back their developments costs with a PS3 exclusive.

    I love how the director of KZ2 was dragged onstage holding the pad as if he's been playing the game. We all saw the fucking trailer hours ago, we know it wasn't been played live.



    Wait wut?



    That Killzone bit was running through the level, the trailer hours ago was chopped off into tiny bits showing different parts of the gameplay.
  • Avaloner 7 years ago

    Overall quite a good show from Sony. They have some interesting things coming up although I feel that the 360 trumps PS3 in terms of exclusive games at present. Very few of the games appearing exclusively on PS3 really pique my interest. I am sure that will eventually change. Killzone 2 looks extremely good and I guess its more fun to play than Gears of War, which was a let down for me all things considered.



    In my opinion they should have left the news on the PS3 price cut for E3. That would have made one kick ass key note. But I guess they had to divulge the news earlier than planned after news of the price cut leaked.



    They should have expanded more on how Home will have trophies and achievements. Having Kojima reaffirm his loyalty towards Sony was a good move but it would have been nice to see some actual gameplay instead of another trailer for MGS4. Will have to wait for the demo in Tokyo next week.

  • Calgon 7 years ago

    I found it very boring personally and alot of the games were "meh"(atleast MS's conference had games that made me excited as a gamer)... I cant beleive people actually care about Killzone2 "its highly anticpited" is it fudge, they just keep going on about it is the only reason its getting attention. Less gimmicks and more games Sony, better than last year, but all three have scaled back on E3 by looks of it.



    Oh and have they actually bought the developer NCSoft or is it just a publishing deal?

  • Varsity 7 years ago

    "Lot's of great exclusives there. Good times for sure!"



    Don't be fooled. Most of them are only exclusives in a very stretched sense of the word.
  • Instinct 7 years ago

    Amazing conference, just amazing. I don't know if this will get treated negatively by some people (the conference, that is) because I'm too tired (it was oddly mentally exhausting ;)) to check the impressions, but that was a flat 11/10. They really knocked it outta the park. Insanely good conference, best I've seen.
  • SeesThroughAll 7 years ago

    It was OK, if not really amazing. Not much better than Microsoft's, to be honest.



    I got fed up of the hosts using Home all the time, not funny at all.



    Main issue a lot of people will complain about: No rumble in sixaxis.



    But, MGS4 confirmed as exclusive, and with the guarantee of worldwide release as a good excuse for the delay was good.



    KZ2 looked very good, almost as good as the infamous 2005 trailer.



    Infamous sounds like the PS3s answer to Crackdown.



    For the most part, hardly any surprises, and I'm shocked that they even bothered to show (shitty) third party games that are already out. WTF?



    If anything, the only surprise was the confirmation that MGS4 is a PS3 exclusive.

    And yes, Hideo, it looks fab :)
  • onyxbox 7 years ago

    you're all miserable bastards, that was a great showing.



    as an owner of all 3 systems I'm chuffed as f'ck about all these games.



  • old_skool 7 years ago

    sorry for the double post :-/
  • Kiigan 7 years ago

    @zuljin



    ah fair enough i thought it was the same.
  • old_skool 7 years ago

    nah, Sony scored an 8, psp-lite, big 1st party games , good support for ps2,psp and ps3 , nice variety, very little financial hoogabaloo, some nice timed exclusive, NCSoft and mods for UT3.
  • 7 years ago

    OMG!



    I'm getting a PS3 tomorrow!!!



    Oh, I already got one!!! Lucky me!!!



    Happy to have one, Sony are awesome!



    Lot's of great exclusives there. Good times for sure!
  • Eighthours 7 years ago

    Monkey. MS easuily have the best line up this xmas, but as they didnt show any exlcusives coming next year we know nothing. Sony did, therefore we have to assume MS have nothing of equal stature for next year. IF they had shown stuff for next year it might have been a different story.



    No, Microsoft just wanted to make sure they nailed this Xmas.



    I expect to see new games at X07.



    Sony's conference was the best, but they missed a bit of an open goal. Most of their good stuff's out in 2008. Very few live demos of games. Terribly gameplay-free MGS trailer. GT5 nowhere near coming out. Not good.
  • old_skool 7 years ago

  • spongebob 7 years ago

    Killzone 2 looks VERY intense. Probably not something I'd enjoy, but it really looks like it might challenge Gears Of War, at least graphically and atmospherically.



    My take on the whole Sony conference



    Negative: Too bad there was no rumble Sixaxis talk, nothing resembling ICO on PS3 and most of the games we had already seen in a form or other. No talk of the new pricing policy in Europe, if there is any.



    Positive: Presentation itself was slick (nice music, too). Jack Tretton was proficient and didn't come feel like a infomercial spin doctor like some of the rival PR people. Liked the announcer voice for the games. Infamous and that PSP/PS3 puzzle game looked great. UT3 timed exclusive deal might ship some units. NCSoft deal sounds brilliant.



    Neutral: Killzone 2 trailer was long overdue, but fine. Home is still uninteresting and feels like too much work to get into.
  • Psychotext 7 years ago

    I don't get that GT5 at all... and I certainly don't know how much of that trailer was render and how much was real. They certainly didn't say it was realtime before it started like they did for the other things.
  • GiantHaystax 7 years ago

    Im sure they do have things but they never showed them, so im basing this purely on the 3 shows.
  • Yossarian 7 years ago

    the closing speech was even humble! good job, Sony, best conference of E3. same as Microsoft in that they just rolled out lots of games, but there was less fatigue about it all. I think Microsoft hampered themselves by focusing on 07 alone.
  • Psychotext 7 years ago

    @Monkey_Puncher: Nah, there's tons coming next year. All they did this E3 was prove they had the strongest lineup this year.
  • Steroyd 7 years ago

    Sweet mother almighty. O_O
  • JediMasterMalik 7 years ago

    KZ2 looked fucking incredible, and so did GT5.
  • Khanivor 7 years ago

    Anyone reckon they will put some AI in KZ2 before they release it?
  • Monkey_Puncher 7 years ago

    Why does it look Microsoft are in trouble next year? They only focused on what's coming out this year at their conference.



    Killzone 2 looks technically impressive, shooting and AI is gonna need a serious upgrade though. Still more impressive than the Halo 3 footage though.



    I'd say Microsoft and Sony pretty much had equal conferences. Neither were amazing and both had their boring bits, but at least they had games to show even if very few of them were actually new.
  • lennon 7 years ago

    @Kiigan - Indeed. He looked a bit embarrassed!



    Oh well nothing great but some nice things all the same. All three neck and neck for me with the fact that I can play all of the games for MS this year perhaps just shading it for me.
  • drumbaby 7 years ago

    That was pretty good. Certainly their best E3 in ages.
  • Malek86 7 years ago

    Over.



    Well, a bit better than MS, and much better than Nintendo... but still lackluster. Oh well, I suppose this is the new E3. Only thing left is that Konami surprise tomorrow.
  • GiantHaystax 7 years ago

    Looks like a purchase next summer then.
  • LeD 7 years ago

    Use of cover? Lack of colour? How very Gears Of You!
  • Psychotext 7 years ago

    Well, they could have earnt a pre-xmas purchase from me (especially with the rumble) there but it's looking like the gold is next year.
  • zuljin 7 years ago

    Kiigan - Might have been a trailer, but it wasn't the same as one released earlier.
  • Everblue 7 years ago

    So, whats EU's new price for a PS3?
  • Psychotext 7 years ago

    Bleh
  • Kiigan 7 years ago

    I love how the director of KZ2 was dragged onstage holding the pad as if he's been playing the game. We all saw the fucking trailer hours ago, we know it wasn't been played live.

  • m0thr4 7 years ago

    No driving games.. apart from GT5 Prologue and what is that exactly?
  • FunkyRenegade 7 years ago

    The envionments are incredible in KZ2, but the gameplay just looks like generic post-apocalyptic FPS #102675
  • dr_zoidthrob 7 years ago

    I thought the original Killzone was hampered by the PS2 controller - I can't see the PS3's being any better
  • Psychotext 7 years ago

    Oh... wait. Has a controller.
  • zuljin 7 years ago

    Effin hell, KZ2 is some of the nicest animation blending I've seen in a long time...
  • Kiigan 7 years ago

    KZ2. He's emptying bullets into the baddies and they barely flinch until they run their dead anim.
  • Psychotext 7 years ago

    Actually doesn't look as good as the other footage though. Maybe should have stuck with it.
  • GiantHaystax 7 years ago

    Do they have the most exclusives? Most of the MS stuff was third party. Sony win for me in terms of the show itself anyway. Obviously 360 wins the xmas. Looks like they are in trouble next year though.
  • Psychotext 7 years ago

    More footage than the other vids, good.
  • Varsity 7 years ago

    I love the colour (or lack thereof) in this game. Very bold move.
  • m0thr4 7 years ago

    Hope there's a proper cover system in Killzone 2... then it will be awesome.
  • spongebob 7 years ago

    Nice ass-shooting there, Rico.
  • Jaded 7 years ago

    The best conference for sure, but not the win they could have had.

  • LeD 7 years ago

  • m0thr4 7 years ago

    No Ratchet and Clank? Or did I miss that while I went and topped my wine glass up?



    Killzone 2... I just don't know who different it's going to be from countless other FPS games I've played.
  • richardiox 7 years ago

    Wonder if Killzone 2 will be out in 2007? At least one big exclusive must be, surely?
  • twinbee 7 years ago

    Disappointing finish.

  • spongebob 7 years ago

    It's now obvious what has changed with E3. This is more about convincing stockholders and investors that the companies are really on top of their game. It's not about unveiling new franchises or games. That's why we're seeing just montages of games we already know about.

  • SniperWolf 7 years ago

    What's wrong with me?, Wii has become a gimmick for soccer moms and PS3 is showing off real games like Unreal, Killzone 2, MGS4. I think Sony have done well at this E3, more so than MS and Nintendo who've done nothing.



    There is nothing wrong with me, there is plenty wrong with Nintendo and it's Wii fitness /cooking/ brain training. dog training bollocks.

    MGS4 and KZ2 to end it all then.

    Well, like I said over an hour ago, it was all a bit predictable wasn't it?
  • richardiox 7 years ago

    They just nicked MS's trailer reel obviously. As someone said, much of that footage was from the 360 builds.
  • Dire 7 years ago

    Dire, 'fraid not!



    But jack said all these games were exclusives?!
  • LeShin 7 years ago

    UNREAL TOURNAMENT 3 this November???!!! WOO HOO lol
  • Malek86 7 years ago

    This is so dejavu. Ah, the troubles of having similar platforms.
  • Varsity 7 years ago

    "He must have said it by accident as these are all on 360 and as far as I know not even timed exclusives."



    That's the charitable explanation...
  • Calgon 7 years ago

    Kain and Lynch hasnt even started development on the PS3 yet, according to Dev interview a few weeks ago, they are concentrating on getting the 360 and PC version completed first.
  • spongebob 7 years ago

    COD4 is a timed exclusive on PS3?
  • el_pollo_diablo 7 years ago

    They're going to have to roll out something better than this lot...
  • Psychotext 7 years ago

    "NFL 08 - some sort of rugby inspired title presumably." - =D
  • Shinji 7 years ago

    He's throwing around the word "exclusive" where he really shouldn't. Not really a surprise, Jack Tretton only ever opens his mouth to change feet.



    The timed exclusives could be a good move though, if they've actually got Haze and UT exclusively until next year. Doubly so if UT has mod support on PS3 but not on 360 - that'll be an interesting one to see.



    Also interesting to see Resi 5 in the trailer reel, there'd been talk of that going 360 exclusive a while back.
  • Psychotext 7 years ago

    It even feels like this third party trailer is in the same order as the MS one. lol
  • captainrentboy 7 years ago

    Dire, 'fraid not!
  • dllord 7 years ago

    I doubt COD4 will be a PS3 exclusive!!!!! As Live has the MP Beta!
  • lennon 7 years ago

    @Dire - none of this is exclusive
  • richardiox 7 years ago

    So just Killzone2, Little Big Planet and MGS4 then?



    Unless they are saving it all for the very end...
  • lennon 7 years ago

    Resi 5 does look great.
  • GamesConnoisseur 7 years ago

    MS have the most important exclusivity, the one on Jade Raymond appearing for em and not at Sony Conference?! That kill it for Sony!!
  • LeShin 7 years ago

    Unreal Tournament 3....with mods.....this november on the PS3??????

    lol better start saving up for this onslaught of good games!!!
  • Dire 7 years ago

    shit all this stuff is exclusive. xbox 360 is owned.
  • Psychotext 7 years ago

    Enough of the non exclusive shit... sell your more expensive console sony.
  • spongebob 7 years ago

    Again I want to commend Capcom for the RE5 scenario and graphics. It looks inspired.
  • Malek86 7 years ago

    My spider sense tells me MGS4 is coming.
  • zuljin 7 years ago

    Ooh Resi
  • Calgon 7 years ago

    Most of the ingame footage on that real is running on a 360... how funny is that? and he says exclusive? :D
  • lennon 7 years ago

    He must have said it by accident as these are all on 360 and as far as I know not even timed exclusives.
  • GiantHaystax 7 years ago

    IT isnt the best conference ever but the general presentation of the previous 2 put this one well ahed, in terms of the actual show itself i mean.
  • richardiox 7 years ago

    No, they are not even timed exclusives. They are just coming to PS3. That AC trailer has already been said to be from the 360 build.



    Differentiation?
  • Dire 7 years ago

    it's more sony bullshit. get used to it.
  • captainrentboy 7 years ago

    How many shooters are only be held off the 360 for a while because of Halo 3 though?

    I'm guessing pretty much all of these timed exclusives.
  • Malek86 7 years ago

    COD4, Assassin's Creed... come on.
  • FunkyRenegade 7 years ago

    Show some real exclusives!!!!!

    I don't give a rats ass if I have to wait 1 week longer for Haze.
  • Kiigan 7 years ago

    Tretton talks such shit.



    "Only the Playstation Network can support the type of game play that NCsoft is known for"



    Er really? Because their games have been running just great without the Playstation Network.



    Also, some VERY misleading comments about games like Call of Duty 4, Haze, Assassin's Creed, and Unreal Tournament and their "exclusivity". They are all coming out on 360.
  • Dire 7 years ago

    thats a nice old assassins creed trailer.
  • spongebob 7 years ago

    At least the Assassin's Creed trailer still kicks ass thanks to UNKLE :)
  • Monkey_Puncher 7 years ago

    Not suprising UT3 isn't on 360 this year, wouldn't stand a chance against the Halo 3 fanboys
  • lennon 7 years ago

    Is he saying every game is an exclusive or did I miss hear?
  • GamesConnoisseur 7 years ago

    games for window build into UT3 engine and now its exclusive to PS3 this year?!!

  • Devious_Droid 7 years ago

    I'm guessing these are timed exclusives.
  • richardiox 7 years ago

  • LeD 7 years ago

    UT3 another timed exclusive? According to the "this year" bit...
  • spongebob 7 years ago

    I want more stuff like echochrome. Less noisy, big shooters for boys. Give me a good story, give me good dialogue or just give me some innovative design like in echochrome.
  • Dire 7 years ago

    UT3 isnt a big loss tbh. it's never been the most popular online fps in the pc world. I think most people will be playing halo3 mp anyway.
  • Varsity 7 years ago

    zuljin, I'm pretty damn sure it was just the seven days.
  • spazmo 7 years ago

    Ctrl V

    YAWN........another effing bog standard shooter
  • Psychotext 7 years ago

    I assume that it's still on the PC this year though.
  • zuljin 7 years ago

    LOL! Same trailer as MS!
  • captainrentboy 7 years ago

    What? AWWWWWW, I wanted UT3, this year too.

    Ok that's one for Sony:)
  • lennon 7 years ago

    Unreal another limited exclusive then?
  • richardiox 7 years ago

    Wow, optimising an engine for your machine. Unheard of.

    Unreal Tournament 3...PS3 exclusive (this year). Show us some real exclusives.

  • GiantHaystax 7 years ago

    Mods on a console that is a big announcement.
  • Psychotext 7 years ago

    @Monkey_Puncher: I'll take what you're smoking. I love the idea of the story but the graphics are nothing next to killzone and halo.
  • zuljin 7 years ago

    Varsity



    I thought it was a year and 7 days?
  • Malek86 7 years ago

    UE3 optimkized for PS3. Duh. It was the least they could do.



    Wait, mods? That's actually a good announcement.
  • Devious_Droid 7 years ago

    mods? neat
  • Varsity 7 years ago

    UT3 exclusive my arse.
  • Psychotext 7 years ago

    Yup... UE3 optimization... they pretty much had to.
  • captainrentboy 7 years ago

    twinbee, it's coming, it's coming, surely to God it's coming.
  • Varsity 7 years ago

    Haze is "exclusive" for seven days, you bloody liar!
  • Monkey_Puncher 7 years ago

    Haze looks better than Halo 3 and Killzone 2
  • spongebob 7 years ago

    Horrible voice over on that Haze trailer. I hate horrible voice over dialogue. It makes me puke.
  • spazmo 7 years ago

    YAWN........another effing bog standard shooter
  • twinbee 7 years ago

    Where is my Metal Gear Solid 4 trailer? :(
  • Shinji 7 years ago

    NCsoft are the guys who run the biggest MMOGs in the world, after World of Warcraft. Lineage, City of Heroes, Guild Wars, all that stuff. It's quite a big deal to get them onto consoles actually - some of their upcoming stuff looks amazing.
  • captainrentboy 7 years ago

    And Shane could be the least threatening name ever. It reminds me of the that fuzzy haired cunt Mr Richie.
  • zuljin 7 years ago

    why was he shooting teammates in that trailer?
  • LeD 7 years ago

    How fast does krudster type that's what I'd like to know...
  • Psychotext 7 years ago

    Actually... watching more it looks bad compared to a lot of games.
  • Psychotext 7 years ago

    Haze looks graphically poor compared to killzone.
  • spongebob 7 years ago

    Haze. It's about action. It's about shooting and hitting people. It's an FPS. Colour me not excited.
  • captainrentboy 7 years ago

    And if you want to play it in January when you're finally done with Halo 3 and Bioshock......
  • Malek86 7 years ago

    Timed exclusive.
  • Deacan 7 years ago

    Attack of the killer Lemons
  • Psychotext 7 years ago

    and yeah, who are ncsoft?
  • Dire 7 years ago

    james wood!
  • lennon 7 years ago

    Lol. Ncsoft. Nice.
  • richardiox 7 years ago

    (Exclusive) games please....Haze doesnt count ...note the wording "if you want to play it this holidays"
  • Psychotext 7 years ago

    Haze confirmed time limited exclusive. You should have moneyhatted it Sony.
  • spongebob 7 years ago

    On that note, could we have City of Heroes / City of Villains on PS3, please.
  • Dire 7 years ago

    quick jack. mention splinter cell!
  • captainrentboy 7 years ago

    What do NC soft do then? I'm not big on PC online games.
  • spongebob 7 years ago

    NCSoft joining PS3 camp. Well, that's good news. I am virtually clapping for that announcement.
  • zuljin 7 years ago

    ncsoft? Nooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooo
    oooo...
  • Devious_Droid 7 years ago

    checks watch
  • Dire 7 years ago

    oh no ncsoft :(
  • Malek86 7 years ago

    Third parties, uh? They gonna talk about MGS4, I bet.
  • m0thr4 7 years ago

    15 1st party exclusives... I'll believe it when I see it.
  • Psychotext 7 years ago

    180 games only available on PS3? BULLSHIT. That has to have been a screwup.
  • LeD 7 years ago

    Somehow I don't think MS and Ninty are going to lose any sleep over this right now.
  • spongebob 7 years ago

    @zuljin

    Thanks for clearing that.
  • GiantHaystax 7 years ago

    Have they ran out of games thennow? nice stat but its lagging now.
  • zuljin 7 years ago

  • zuljin 7 years ago

    @spongebob

    You can launch games on your console with it (HD + BR). I think in future you can download from home too tho.
  • Dire 7 years ago

    *yawn*
  • Psychotext 7 years ago

    They reckon it'll be announced tomorrow.
  • Devious_Droid 7 years ago

    booooooooooring
  • Monkey_Puncher 7 years ago

    Very best in next gen technology, but where's the fucking games?

  • m0thr4 7 years ago

  • richardiox 7 years ago

    Would they annouce the Euro price cut at this keynote or will they be later or tmrw? They've said its coming. Now show me the games to make me part my cash.
  • Psychotext 7 years ago

    @zuljin: Someone trying to get laid? =D
  • GiarcYekrub 7 years ago

    @zuljin

    Thats just perverts with multiple accounts and teenage girls
  • spongebob 7 years ago

    So I can access the game that is inside my PS3 Blu-Ray drive from Home or I can download the game from PSN using Home? If it's the former, big deal, if it's the latter, not bad.
  • captainrentboy 7 years ago

    Are they running out of material or what?
  • zuljin 7 years ago

    @Psychotext

    crack jack!

    Jack's just had another doobie
  • Varsity 7 years ago

    They're making a huge deal about launching games from Home. Haven't they heard of these "shortcut" things I think Windows has?
  • Artemus 7 years ago

    A car crash. How appropriate.
  • captainrentboy 7 years ago

    Motorstorm? MOTORSTORM??? I want to see something of the upcoming 80 PS3 games.
  • Dire 7 years ago

    why are the fucktards clapping?
  • zuljin 7 years ago

    GiarcYekrub"

    I'm afraid plenty of pp on MySpace Facebook etc beg to differ.
  • lennon 7 years ago

    So now were watching Phil play a game that has already launched. Im confused! Are we going back in time?
  • JaysonG 7 years ago

    You suck phil!
  • Psychotext 7 years ago

    Mmm... grass clipping through car. Nice. =)
  • Monkey_Puncher 7 years ago

    Why are we watching Motorstorm? We've all seen Motorstorm before....
  • Devious_Droid 7 years ago

    get on with it
  • malteaserhead 7 years ago

    groupal
  • spongebob 7 years ago

    With MS they were too concentrated and there was not enough hype, ie. their conference was boring. Nintendo's presentation was wacky and crappy. Sony's is all over the place.



    So far MS' conference was the most cohesive of the lot, even if the games are all so similar on that platform.
  • Psychotext 7 years ago

    Motorstorm... seen it.
  • m0thr4 7 years ago

    Phil Harrison really is a complete nob. I mean, I'm happy with my PS3 and my PSP and everything, but Phil's still not really selling it to me. To much business bullshit bingo phrases for my liking...
  • Malek86 7 years ago

    Why should we see some guys playing a launch game? The NEW games! Where are they?
  • GiantHaystax 7 years ago

    HA HA anyone see that woman cwith the short skirt called "PETE - E32007"
  • Monkey_Puncher 7 years ago

    You can actually launch games on PS3? That's amazing...
  • GiarcYekrub 7 years ago

    Social Networking is crap can't sum1 tell them
  • Psychotext 7 years ago

    Ummm... so what, of course you should be able to launch a game from home.
  • richardiox 7 years ago

    Singstar, a console Kareoke game really is just like a cross between "itunes and Myspace". That's why I'd play Singstar.



    And it's pretty usefull being able to send photos from my mobile to a wall in my Home. Again, when i'm playing on my console i want to be just "hanging out" in my VR home.



    Just...gimme...games.



    edit - and im sure the quickest way for me to play a game is to join it from my PS3 Home space somewhere. Whats the point?
  • Calgon 7 years ago

    I prefer the no nonsense Xbox Live approach... its more direct, simple well laid out menus are a faster way of doing things, home does look snazzy but I bet people will get bored with it fast and want something less gimmicky.
  • GiantHaystax 7 years ago

    blogging about what you do in home? Totally pointless.
  • twinbee 7 years ago

    Why not just load the Blu-Ray with lots of song?



    How will they be able to milk you dry like that?
  • Psychotext 7 years ago

    @captainrentboy: Mainly because there's been a few things we haven't seen before.
  • lennon 7 years ago

    Smug twat clapping himself
  • Psychotext 7 years ago

    Oh god... there's gonna be dicks on walls all over the place.
  • captainrentboy 7 years ago

    How is it the best of the three?

    The criticism at MS was ''There were no surprises or excitement''

    This sounds like a whole lot more of the same.

    We all guessed a big focus on Home, and here it is.

    Surely this is only appealing to girls and emos right :) Not big burly men like myself!
  • Malek86 7 years ago

    "iTunes meets MySpace"



    I'll remember to stay clear of it, then.
  • Dire 7 years ago

    omg photo in game!!!! phil was so shocked.
  • GiarcYekrub 7 years ago

    God this generation is boring
  • Monkey_Puncher 7 years ago

    Jesus this is dull...
  • Malek86 7 years ago

    Why not just load the Blu-Ray with lots of song? They've got the space.



    Man, this is getting stale.
  • Dire 7 years ago

    singstar yes !!
  • malteaserhead 7 years ago

    games games games dammit

  • spongebob 7 years ago

    Home looks great, but I don't know why I would want to use it. Although I don't want to use mySpace, Slickr or YouTube either, so I guess I am just a geezer who's not getting on with the program.
  • Artemus 7 years ago

    When's the MGS4 trailer on...?

    I wonder if Home come pre-loaded with all that wonderful porno music?

    watching the gamespot feed here and it's just as boring as it sounds.
  • GiantHaystax 7 years ago

    ITs the better of the 3 so far i think.
  • captainrentboy 7 years ago

    Fucking hell , I don't know if it's the live feed text not doing it justice, but this sounds fooking boring.

  • spongebob 7 years ago

    It really IS cool that you can play PSP games on a telly. Good stuff, really. But I hoped they had put a bigger in-built flash RAM in it and maybe even second analogue stick. Although, if the new model is cheap, it'll be all good, I guess.



    (ps. I am sure the new model is unhackable :)

  • DanMW 7 years ago

    Best thing about E3 so far, conferences starting on time :D
  • penguin_overlord 7 years ago

    I think Sony are going into E3 with a lot of optimism. The Killzone trailer has been the talk of E3 so far, the PS3 price drop has seen sales rocket upwards, the Microsoft press conference was not very inspiring, the 360's reliability is still in question and sales have levelled out and, finally, Nintendo seem very much to be going after the mainstream audience only.

    Let's see if they gonna cut the Euro PS3 price. If they do, I might actually start saving money.
  • captainrentboy 7 years ago

    Yes, I was one of the ones continuously giving 'em jip on here, but all of that fanboy shit, even if it is jokey, gets sooo boring after a while, so even though lil ole MS have a special place in my heart, I'm willing to give sony a chance to impress :)
  • Psychotext 7 years ago

    @captainrentboy: They've had it hard because they acted like an utter bunch of pricks with their arrogance, pricing and overall strategy. They've earnt kudos with the price cut, and now they have a chance to show us a little bit of humility and that the PS3 is more than just a blu-ray player with a couple of games.



    So lets see if they can impress.
  • DanMW 7 years ago

    I hope Sony put up a strong show, MS's one was rather predictable and Nintendo's didn't really offer anything impressive.



    What's this Konami BIG news I hear about?
  • captainrentboy 7 years ago

    Thanks chaps, saved me a lot of reading.

    So Sony should have this in the bag yeah?

    I hope they do blow us away actually, they're due some praise as they've had it particulary tough over the last few months.

    Killzone 2 looked sweet, a couple more like that, maybe some surprises, and they'd have 'owned' E3.

    45 minutes yacking about Home and LBP isn't going to cut it for me though.
  • GiantHaystax 7 years ago

    Having a while to mull over the MS one it wasn't too bad. I mean the presentation itself was, but if you watch the montages up on the marketplace everything does look impressive. The Nintendo one really did no have little/no content bar wii fit.
  • JediMasterMalik 7 years ago

    Shit! Completely forgot about the new MGS4 trailer, that MUST be in there. Can't wait.
  • El_MUERkO 7 years ago

    you know you want too
  • Psychotext 7 years ago

    @captainrentboy: MS one really showed us nothing new and no demo of halo like a lot of people were expecting. Presenters sucked and Moore screwed up Rock Band. It was solid, but boring.



    Ninty once again showed us nothing particularly new and spent 75% of the time patting themselves on the back. Gamers concerned that they're moving their focus away from traditional games and into non games.
  • Malek86 7 years ago

    captainrentboy: MS's conference was uneventful and unsurprising, while Nintendo's conference was like a bad fitness program advertisement.
  • captainrentboy 7 years ago

    As I can't be arsed to read 700 odd posts, can someone give me the general gist as to why the MS and Nintendo conferences are being widely regarded as shite.

    I didn't think the MS one was too bad, could have done with a few surprise announcements sure (That Green monstrosity doesn't count) but I thought they pretty much focussed on what people wanted to hear, which is the remainding big games left this year :/
  • reddevil93 7 years ago

    @psychotext

  • Psychotext 7 years ago

  • Nostromo13 7 years ago

    oh please, microsoft bashing is far to prevalent around here and why? face it, nintendo has done fuck all since launch for the wii and even then look at the same old crap, another metroid, another mario and another mario kart, talk about sequels and these fuckers have been doing the same shit for decades. Sony, wow no games since launch of the ps3 and still no love for ms, arg, all clowns around here.
  • Steroyd 7 years ago

    MS is going to clean up this holiday season, halo3, GTA, Eternal sonata, Ace combat, Blue dragon, the games are limitless.



    Because Sony's got no games this holiday season rite?

    Look, Sony... as long as you don't turn up on stage and start executing puppies then you've won this.



    So leave the puppies where they are.
  • SniperWolf 7 years ago

    Sony win by default, the competion failed to turn up at E3...



    Cookies go to Capcom for RE5, Bioware for Mass effect, Infinity ward for COD4, Guerilla for Killzone 2,



    The biggest flop of the show goes to Nintendo and the underwhelmiing Halo 3. I want Sony to be amazing just to keep me from feeling utterly depressed about the road Nintendo has taken this gen. It's like losing a old friend...

  • SeesThroughAll 7 years ago

    You're gonna watch Sony's conference on a Wii? :D

  • Kenshin001 7 years ago

    Sony should take Kojima's family hostage and demand he make a statement that MGS4 will be eternally PS3 exclusive. Sony wins.
  • macksed 7 years ago

    can someone link to me the gamespot streaming page like the last gamespot "nintendo player"? its much better than the normal GS player
  • SeesThroughAll 7 years ago

    I'm having the impression that they'll do something similar to Microsoft's conference, talk a lot about Home probably, with the extra that at this moment they can still brag about MGS4 being exclusive.
  • JaysonG 7 years ago

    Ooooh E3 I forgot!
  • groovychainsaw 7 years ago

    Seems so far that actually there is a dearth of new games.. wonder if sony has been holding anything back for this...
  • Steroyd 7 years ago

    STA i'd rather this conference not be all about how close to the trailer KZ2 is neither would I want them to flaunt MGS4 all conference.



    Sony is the biggest manufacturer publisher out of the 3 and they will have totally lost it if they cling onto past success (ala Nintendo) or re-iterate what we already know (MS).



    Sony showed glimpses at GDC so take this sucker all the way Sony... for my sake please.

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

19:17 By Robert Purchese

And so it begins! Or nearly does. Looks like the last few people are taking their seats for Sony's E3 conference.

19:17 By Robert Purchese

We're in a giant warehouse, with four huge screens up the front. So far all they're displaying is the swirly wavey thing that you see on the PS3's main interface.

19:19 By Robert Purchese

There's music playing, obviously - a bit more dark and dramatic than Nintendo's chirpy selection and not quite as thumping ROCK as Microsoft's. It's all jolly contemporary.

19:22 By Robert Purchese

There's just been an announcement - it's all starting in 10 minutes. There's a weird glass table on the stage that looks too short for a podium. Is it going to act as a display stand for something exciting?

19:22 By Robert Purchese

If so we predict it probably won't be a Halo-themed PS3.

19:25 By Robert Purchese

Ubisoft boss Yves Guillemot is here, as he was at the other two conferences. We had a short chat before - he was very impressed by Nintendo's event, particularly Wii Fit.

19:26 By Robert Purchese

The conference is starting in five minutes, according to the latest announcement.

19:28 By Robert Purchese

Wonder if Phil Harrison will be first on stage? He's probably polishing his nice blue trainers as we type.

19:31 By Robert Purchese

The lights are down...

19:32 By Robert Purchese

First up, it's PSP - a big montage of swirly images is on the big screen.

19:32 By Robert Purchese

Now there's PS2 - but no sign of PS3 yet.

19:32 By Robert Purchese

Ah, there we go. Lots of flashing symbols, the shape buttons, pumping music. Sony goes House!

19:33 By Robert Purchese

It's Jack Tretton, the president and CEO of Sony America. He's not on stage though - his Home avatar is on the screens.

19:33 By Robert Purchese

Home Tretton is wandering out of his apartment and into "Home square".

19:33 By Robert Purchese

"Good morning ladies, looking good," he says to some passers by. They look unimpressed.

19:34 By Robert Purchese

And here's the real Jack Tretton, looking very smart casual.

19:34 By Robert Purchese

"Incredible crowd." He's really pleased to see us!

19:35 By Robert Purchese

"I'm more of a Power Point guy, and this is more Kaz's style, to have the wide open style."

19:35 By Robert Purchese

"I'm hoping if we get to some exciting news I'll be able to moonwalk across the stage." We hope so too, Jack.

19:36 By Robert Purchese

Everyone at Sony is extremely proud of Home - "Over the past 13 years, SCE has strived to deliver not only great innovation but great entertainment."

19:36 By Robert Purchese

So today, they're going to show us "games, games and more games".

19:36 By Robert Purchese

Along with "a few other surprises..."

19:36 By Robert Purchese

He's talking about the 80GB PS3 now - USD 599 with MotorStorm packed in the box.

19:37 By Robert Purchese

We'll be seeing almost 50 titles for Sony consoles.

19:37 By Robert Purchese

"Once you've seen the scope... You'll understand why we feel we're in a very strong position."

19:37 By Robert Purchese

"We're confident we'll continue our industry-leading role in this generation and beyond."

19:37 By Robert Purchese

PS2 first. Has it really been seven years?

19:38 By Robert Purchese

118 million installed base - that makes it "the most popular console of all time, worldwide".

19:38 By Robert Purchese

10 million units in 2007.

19:38 By Robert Purchese

God of War II is on the screen - it's on the way to becoming a USD $200 million franchise.

19:39 By Robert Purchese

Buzz! and SingStar now. Wonder what he thinks of Scene It?

19:39 By Robert Purchese

160 new games are coming to PS2 this fiscal year - in North America, it says.

19:39 By Robert Purchese

And now it's PSP. "Our goal is to continue to build on the strong momentum following the recent price move."

19:39 By Robert Purchese

Apparently everyone loves the price cut - weekly sales have been up 90 per cent since they did it.

19:40 By Robert Purchese

UMD sales are up 35 per cent since 2006. Gosh.

19:40 By Robert Purchese

9 million PSPs have now been sold worldwide, and 140 games are coming to the US this fiscal year.

19:40 By Robert Purchese

Oops - that 9 million figure is a goal, sorry.

19:41 By Robert Purchese

SOCOM PSP - lots of dramatic music and fightiness.

19:41 By Robert Purchese

WipEout Pulse now. Zooom.

19:41 By Robert Purchese

Syphon Filter Logan's Shadow - there's our Gabe, stealthing it up again.

19:41 By Robert Purchese

NBA 08, and now God of War Chains of Olympus. These are all getting very short footage clips and pumping soundtracks.

19:42 By Robert Purchese

Silent Hill Origins - good grief that's disgusting.

19:42 By Robert Purchese

Patapon - little figures mashing and bashing down structures, it's all a bit LocoRoco.

19:42 By Robert Purchese

Tiger Woods PGA Tour 08. Will it feature his new baby?

19:43 By Robert Purchese

Sonic Rivals 2 - Tails is going mental! Frame rate interesting.

19:44 By Robert Purchese

Sims 2 Castaway, and now SWAT Target Liberty. More top down gunning fun.

19:44 By Robert Purchese

Final Fantasy Tactics: The War of the Lions. Aslan vs. Simba?

19:45 By Robert Purchese

Castlevania - Dracula X Chronicles - and that's it. Applause. No whooping.

19:46 By Robert Purchese

Home Tretton is back to show us his "tricked out apartment" .

19:46 By Robert Purchese

There's a lovely view from his balcony. "Hey Kaz what are you doing here?" Kaz is on the balcony! "Are you playing Riiiiiidge Racer?"

19:46 By Robert Purchese

Kaz is ignoring the Ridge Racer jibe and waffling about burgers on the grill.

19:47 By Robert Purchese

He wants to talk about PSP. Their avatars are talking without moving their lips, miraculously.

19:47 By Robert Purchese

Oh, the real Kaz is here! Bold.

19:47 By Robert Purchese

He's here to share some very exciting news about PSP.

19:47 By Robert Purchese

Something in his pocket...

19:47 By Robert Purchese

"The latest version of PSP will come available worldwide in September."

19:48 By Robert Purchese

Doesn't look much different - still has same size screen and UMD.

19:48 By Robert Purchese

"But when you have it in your hand the difference is clear."

19:48 By Robert Purchese

It's 33 per cent ligher and 19 per cent slimmer.

19:48 By Robert Purchese

The battery is more efficient too, and games load faster.

19:48 By Robert Purchese

"But the coolest feature is the ability to output high quality video."

19:49 By Robert Purchese

So you can use your PSP on the road and also hook it up to your Bravia so everyone can "enjoy the content on your PSP".

19:49 By Robert Purchese

He's hooking it up to show us. Really does look very similar to the current PSP - same colours and all.

19:49 By Robert Purchese

He's playing a trailer for Spider-Man 2 on his PSP. Now he's going to press the display button - and now it's playing on the big screen.

19:50 By Robert Purchese

You can obviously control what you're seeing using the PSP's buttons. Clapping.

19:50 By Robert Purchese

"The good thing is, you can do the same thing with all the stuff you have on your PSP" - games, photos.

19:50 By Robert Purchese

PS3 and PSP connectivity and remote play now. Isn't it good, says Kaz.

19:51 By Robert Purchese

It's all about the ability to do things on Sony platforms you can't do on others, says Kaz.

19:51 By Robert Purchese

"The updated PSP comes in piano black, and SCEJ and SCEE will soon be announcing models for their markets."

19:51 By Robert Purchese

But for now, Jack's going to show us some of the colours coming to the US.

19:51 By Robert Purchese

Go on Kaz, do the Riiiiidge... Oh he's gone.

19:52 By Robert Purchese

Tretton again. "It also comes in ice silver". He's holding it up; shiny indeed.

19:53 By Robert Purchese

It will come in a PSP entertainment pack in US, including Daxter and a 1GB Memory Stick, and The Family Guy Frickin' Sweet UMD.

19:53 By Robert Purchese

Will retail for USD 199.99 from September.

19:53 By Robert Purchese

One more colour. Trumpeting! It's Chewbacca!

19:53 By Robert Purchese

Whoops! Chewbacca looking well. He's clearly brushed.

19:53 By Robert Purchese

It's going to be a Star Wars BattleFront entertainment pack.

19:54 By Robert Purchese

It's a white PSP with Darth Vader on the back.

19:54 By Robert Purchese

USD 199.99, again. Chewies doing some groans. Now we're seeing Battlefront in action.

19:54 By Robert Purchese

Star Wars Battlefront Renegade Squadron will let you customise your character, weapons and abilities.

19:55 By Robert Purchese

"This fall - only on the PSP."

19:55 By Robert Purchese

Chewbacca's off. Tretton pleased to have been hugged by a wookie.

19:56 By Robert Purchese

Time for a PlayStation Network update. He's waffling about remote play, Home, free play etc.

19:56 By Robert Purchese

2 million registered users now. 950k in North America.

19:56 By Robert Purchese

20 million downloads.

19:57 By Robert Purchese

It's Phil Harrison. No trainers!

19:57 By Robert Purchese

Phil's going to show off downloadable games. He's talking about how tip top it is having a big hard drive in the PS3.

19:58 By Robert Purchese

"Two of the games I am about to show you will be available both on Blu-ray and as a download."

19:58 By Robert Purchese

80 first party games in development worldwide.

19:59 By Robert Purchese

"Every generation has a defining puzzle game," says Phil. Sony's designed one that has "the least graphics and most gameplay of any title you'll see this week".

19:59 By Robert Purchese

It's called "echochrome". Japan Studio have made it.

19:59 By Robert Purchese

An artist's wooden figure model is walking up some stairs and round some blocks. It's very simple black on white line drawing.

20:00 By Robert Purchese

The figure walks into a hole and falls down, now he's projected into the air.

20:00 By Robert Purchese

The blocks he's walking on are getting more complex; it's all a bit Escher.

20:00 By Robert Purchese

So black circles make the figure fall down, and white circles project him up. This way he can move between blocks.

20:01 By Robert Purchese

"How cool is that?" says Phil. Clapping. "And that's the easy level."

20:01 By Robert Purchese

Four more games to come - the first is a PSOne franchise originally. Now coming in "eye-blistering" 1080p with full online multiplayer - WipEout HD.

20:01 By Robert Purchese

The second is called Pain. It's about how misfortunes can be amusing.

20:02 By Robert Purchese

Next there's the two on Blu-ray and PSN - WarHawk and SOCOM US Navy Seals Confrontation.

20:02 By Robert Purchese

WipeEout HD footage - looks very sharp indeed, but the tracks and ships seem to be still in the traditional style.

20:02 By Robert Purchese

As you'd expect it's very fast. Has anyone got any plasters for our eyes?

20:03 By Robert Purchese

Pain footage. Looks a bit Jackass - a man is being catapulted off a rooftop and into a plate glass window, onto a bus, crashing into a bicycle.

20:03 By Robert Purchese

RoSPA is going to have fun with that.

20:03 By Robert Purchese

A bloke's talking about WarHawk now. Shots of the flying bit and the driving around bit.

20:04 By Robert Purchese

Footage of David Seymour talking about SOCOM. "The game runs completely of PS3's hard drive."

20:05 By Robert Purchese

Says fans spotted Crossroads when the game was first unveiled - this was to show the comparison with the PS2 graphics.

20:05 By Robert Purchese

It's not being developed by Zipper, but by Slant 6 Games.

20:06 By Robert Purchese

Hello again, Phil. Plenty more amazing things to come, he says. But for now he's going to talk about Home. The beta is "progressing exactly as planned for our fall rollout".

20:06 By Robert Purchese

They've made some important new additions he's going to share. "We now have the Home client running on a mobile phone."

20:07 By Robert Purchese

He's showing us his Sony Ericsson. "The ultimate 3D experience is only on PS3... but the touch features are extending sideways". Or something.

20:07 By Robert Purchese

He's taking a photo of the audience, just like he did at GDC.

20:07 By Robert Purchese

Now we're going to Home Square - which will replace the current lounge lobby. It's an open air space that looks like a town square.

20:07 By Robert Purchese

"We'll be launching new spaces all the time."

20:08 By Robert Purchese

In the Home Square there are lots of casual gaming elements. Also some nice trees and a fountain.

20:08 By Robert Purchese

Montage now of Home stuff - a city balcony at night, a Japanese style water garden, people dancing outside an apartment.

20:08 By Robert Purchese

Here's Phil's avatar, at a ski lodge in Norway, wearing a red MotorStorm racing suit.

20:09 By Robert Purchese

He's got SingStar set up in there. More than 10 million units and 300 million songs have now been delivered.

20:09 By Robert Purchese

SingStar on PS3 will push PSN "to new heights". It will ship on Blu-ray, but of course you'll be able to download songs.

20:09 By Robert Purchese

BOZEK! Not in the flesh, though.

20:10 By Robert Purchese

"It really is like iTunes meets MySpace."

20:10 By Robert Purchese

You forgot to mention YouTube, Bozek.

20:11 By Robert Purchese

She's gone, Phil's back in his Home, and the photo of the audience is displayed in a frame on his wall. So you can take pics on your phone and send them straight there.

20:11 By Robert Purchese

Phil's taking a digital photograph inside Home and pushing it out to a PC website. It's the social networking site for Home, shown for the first time.

20:12 By Robert Purchese

Key goal to "an integrated and cohesive space for gamers to meet, socialise, talk about games and play them".

20:12 By Robert Purchese

You will be able to launch any PS3 game from inside Home.

20:12 By Robert Purchese

So Phil and his Home mates are going to have a go at MotorStorm. Someone's bringing him a controller.

20:13 By Robert Purchese

11 people around the world - "one of whom is rubbish at the game" - are going to play.

20:13 By Robert Purchese

Straight into the multiplayer lobby. It's a brand new track, Eagle's Nest, which will be available for download next month.

20:13 By Robert Purchese

And we're off. Phil's in 6th place.

20:14 By Robert Purchese

Track looks like what you'd expect - rocks, ramps, all a familiar style.

20:15 By Robert Purchese

Any games can be launched from Home, not just multiplayer. When you're finished you quit and you'll go straight back to Home, "Delivering on our promise to deliver a fully integrated platform."

20:15 By Robert Purchese

You'll be able to visit specific lounges for your favourite games.

20:15 By Robert Purchese

Bye bye Phil, and hello again Jack.

20:15 By Robert Purchese

PS3 update - they want to broaden the installed base and "deliver a very wide selection of game services that offer something for everyone".

20:16 By Robert Purchese

The 80GB model is part of this plan. He's talking about the price and the date again...

20:16 By Robert Purchese

Yes, the price cut, we do remember that...

20:17 By Robert Purchese

"Since Monday, sales of the 60GB PS3 have doubled at our top five retailers."

20:17 By Robert Purchese

11 million units of PS3 to be shipped worldwide this year.

20:17 By Robert Purchese

"We never wavered in our belief that Blu-ray was absolutely the way to go."

20:18 By Robert Purchese

It's all about massive capacity. Not damage, then?

20:18 By Robert Purchese

"PS3 success has contributed greatly to Blu-ray success, to the tune of 2 to 1 sales margin over HD-DVD."

20:18 By Robert Purchese

Over 200 Blu-ray disc games due this year, as Kaz said.

20:19 By Robert Purchese

"Support from game publishers is nothing short of outstanding."

20:19 By Robert Purchese

So we're on to the third parties now.

20:19 By Robert Purchese

"NCsoft will be joining the PlayStation camp," announces Tretton.

20:20 By Robert Purchese

NCsoft will create "online games for our platforms accessible through the PS Network that will be found nowhere else".

20:20 By Robert Purchese

Based on current intellectual properties and new IPs.

20:20 By Robert Purchese

He's going to talk Ubisoft now. This autumn...

20:20 By Robert Purchese

Haze.

20:21 By Robert Purchese

"If you want to play it this holiday, you'll only be able to do so exclusively on PlayStation 3." Time for a trailer.

20:21 By Robert Purchese

"The name is Shane Carpenter. I was trained to handle anything."

20:21 By Robert Purchese

He's blasting away and strangling enemies.

20:22 By Robert Purchese

Shot of man walking through the rain. Looks like video footage?

20:22 By Robert Purchese

Now back to the game, exploding oil barrels, a jeep leaping over a ramp.

20:22 By Robert Purchese

Melee attacks, getting on board a helicopter.

20:23 By Robert Purchese

"That looks great," says Jack. "Thank you, Ubisoft."

20:24 By Robert Purchese

Unreal now. "Sony has signed a multi-stage deal with Midway and Epic." "The full optimisation of the Unreal engine for PS3 development."

20:24 By Robert Purchese

It's to help developers speed up game creation.

20:24 By Robert Purchese

Nearly 100 games in the works and more to come. "Epic's Unreal Tournament 3 is confirmed as a PS3 exclusive this year."

20:24 By Robert Purchese

You'll be able to bring mods from the PC version you've created to the PS Network.

20:26 By Robert Purchese

A trailer - "This November, the tournament for the next generation". Looks like the same one we saw at the Microsoft conference earlier.

20:26 By Robert Purchese

Time for other exclusive "hardware driving games" for PS3 - Call of Duty 4 Modern Warfare.

20:26 By Robert Purchese

Night vision looks like fun.

20:27 By Robert Purchese

Assassin's Creed. No sign of Jade, though. More shots of the combat in slow motion, and there Altair goes jumping off the roof again.

20:28 By Robert Purchese

Kane & Lynch Dead Men - it's a bank heist, now a rooftop shooting on a helicopter pad.

20:28 By Robert Purchese

Resident Evil 5 - looks like the same trailer we saw at the Microsoft conference earlier today. These all look very similar.

20:28 By Robert Purchese

Burnout Paradise. Not so much with the crashing, just the zooming, it seems.

20:29 By Robert Purchese

NFL 08 - some sort of rugby inspired title presumably.

20:30 By Robert Purchese

Harry Potter and the Order of the Phoenix. Five out of ten says Eurogamer.

20:30 By Robert Purchese

The Simpsons Game. Marge is running around beating up the police it looks like.

20:30 By Robert Purchese

Guitar Hero III. It's all pretty familiar stuff.

20:31 By Robert Purchese

Medal of Honor Airborne.

20:32 By Robert Purchese

Rock Band. And that's it - back to Tretton.

20:33 By Robert Purchese

Time for a new third-party exclusive. It's MGS 4 and here comes Hideo Kojima.

20:34 By Robert Purchese

He's on stage with a translator. "I safely made it again on-stage to this E3."

20:34 By Robert Purchese

"Well the game, Metal Gear, known as a stealth game is celebrating it's 20th anniversary this July."

20:35 By Robert Purchese

"This Metal Gear Solid 4 is the finale."

20:35 By Robert Purchese

"It will be a stealth game but with new elements. Stealth in the battlefield."

20:36 By Robert Purchese

"I promise you all my skills are going into Metal Gear Solid 4." He's got some real-time footage to show us, the first we've seen.

20:37 By Robert Purchese

We're in the battlefield learning about the mission no one can know about. War is the pillar supporting global economy, apparently. But no one wants to do anything about it.

20:37 By Robert Purchese

It's a hired hit Snake is needed for.

20:37 By Robert Purchese

Looks very atmospheric. Same desert-like battlefield. Trailer wasn't far off before. No HUD so far looks like a cut scene.

20:38 By Robert Purchese

The soldiers are coughing and collapsing. Something's in the air.

20:39 By Robert Purchese

The soldiers are going mental now, beating each other up.

20:39 By Robert Purchese

Snake's coughing and falling to the ground.

20:39 By Robert Purchese

A solider grabs him - he pushes him off.

20:39 By Robert Purchese

He's pointing a gun at Liquid, who's trying to escape on a helicopter

20:39 By Robert Purchese

"Snake, if you won't be a prisoner to fate, then go, fulfill your destiny."

20:39 By Robert Purchese

"I just don't fear death."

20:40 By Robert Purchese

Cyborg chopping off limbs in ninja fashion.

20:40 By Robert Purchese

He's pulled a spike right through his chest and out the other side! Now there's lots of snipping in the air and flying about.

20:41 By Robert Purchese

This is an epic battle. Cyborg pushes his own sword through his stomach and then that of his rival, who has grabbed him from behind.

20:41 By Robert Purchese

"Could you be the one to finally finish me?"

20:42 By Robert Purchese

Simultaneous worldwide launch, spring 2008.

20:42 By Robert Purchese

"Exclusively on PS3", Tretton says again.

20:42 By Robert Purchese

Kojima asks how it was. Everyone claps and cheers.

20:42 By Robert Purchese

"This is real-time footage and you'll be able to play in this quality," says Kojima.

20:43 By Robert Purchese

"Sorry, because of time we only have the trailer, but next week in Tokyo I will play a demo."

20:43 By Robert Purchese

There he'll show more about how to operate on the battlefield. "It will look a little crazy and I think you'll like it, and I hope that everyone can come to Tokyo next week." 17th July at PlayStation premiere event.

20:44 By Robert Purchese

Kojima's off, and Tretton's handing over to Phil Harrison again, who's also back in Home wearing a Ratchet costume.

20:44 By Robert Purchese

Ratchet and Clank Future Tools of Destruction now. Where's Afrika?

20:45 By Robert Purchese

Footage of an Insomniac chap talking. Ratchet sees the destruction of a city and encounters a new villain who wants to destroy his entire race.

20:45 By Robert Purchese

"This is where some questions about Ratchet's history come up," he says. "Something we've never explored before in the series."

20:45 By Robert Purchese

Ratchet is grinding on rails, lobbing grenades, avoiding giant blades.

20:46 By Robert Purchese

It all looks very Bladerunner and frantic.

20:46 By Robert Purchese

Phil's going to give us a sneak peek at Folklore now, which he describes as "a stunning work of art" - from Game Republic and Japan Studios.

20:47 By Robert Purchese

More developer talk. "It's got a good mix of a lot of different genres, whether it's action, fantasy, or RPG."

20:47 By Robert Purchese

Nice laser whip, sexy lady with shiny bottom, bloke going all evil.

20:47 By Robert Purchese

Heavenly Sword now. They've built a special Home theatre for it - a bit stone pagoda type structure.

20:48 By Robert Purchese

Tameem Antoniades of Ninja Theory is on screen. "It aims to emulate the experience of the big summer blockbuster."

20:48 By Robert Purchese

"It's very story driven and really tries to raise the bar in terms of dramatic performance."

20:49 By Robert Purchese

Everything looks sharp, fluid and super fast. Millions of enemies on a battlefield - "Without Blu-ray, we wouldn't have been able to create Heavenly Sword."

20:50 By Robert Purchese

NBA 08 now. "The first sports game ever to achieve 1080p visuals at 60fps," says Phil. A lot of very tall men jumping around.

20:50 By Robert Purchese

You'll get to go online and challenge people, including one on one matches. "You're only going to be able to do that on PlayStation 3," says man on screen.

20:50 By Robert Purchese

Ahh, LittleBigPlanet! A new version of Sackboy with a chintzy pattern.

20:51 By Robert Purchese

"The essence of LittleBigPlanet is play, create, share," says Phil.

20:52 By Robert Purchese

Alex Evans of Media Molecule is on. Characters building wooden structures - oh, it's a tree - now a cardboard tank, which is rolling down a ramp.

20:52 By Robert Purchese

Bowls of chillies used to create obstacles.

20:52 By Robert Purchese

Building steps now, and then cutting holes out like the shape buttons. "Play, create and share" mentioned again.

20:53 By Robert Purchese

Oh, is that all? Oh well, it's Naughty Dog's Uncharted: Drake's Fortune now.

20:53 By Robert Purchese

"The Cell processor is allowing us to do things we were never able to do on PS2," says Evan Wells from Naughty Dog.

20:53 By Robert Purchese

That includes realistic facial animations. "Uncharted is going to be the best game Naughty Dog's ever made."

20:54 By Robert Purchese

The footage is of Drake running round temples, gunning and jumping. Back to Phil. Six of the 15 games Sony is bringing exclusively to PS3 this year.

20:54 By Robert Purchese

Now Harrison's announcing a game from Sly Cooper developer Sucker Punch. "An organic and open city" where you choose to be a villain or superhero.

20:55 By Robert Purchese

It's called Infamous. We're seeing a US city at night.

20:55 By Robert Purchese

Helicopters flying over a bridge, again at night. The camera swoops down into the street and on to one man.

20:55 By Robert Purchese

"Some would call him an anomaly," says a women in a voice over.

20:56 By Robert Purchese

Now the action. Our hero is leaping over cars, blowing stuff up, fighting some kind of robot.

20:56 By Robert Purchese

Due 2008. And that's it. Interesting - and clearly nothing like Sly Raccoon.

20:57 By Robert Purchese

On to Gran Turismo 5 Prologue now. Trailer up and it looks shiny. Look at the reflections on that.

20:58 By Robert Purchese

A shot of a silver car in London to end on. "Truly a beautiful game," says Phil.

20:58 By Robert Purchese

That's the last we'll see of Phil, it seems.

20:58 By Robert Purchese

Oh dear. He's talking to Tretton's Home avatar. "Hey Phil, didn't you forget one thing?"

20:59 By Robert Purchese

He did. "Everything you're about to see is real time." It's Killzone 2.

20:59 By Robert Purchese

A hellghast's eyes stare down from the big screen.

21:00 By Robert Purchese

A group of soldiers loading their weapons on a flying vehicle. Wonder if this is the same footage Tom saw last night?

21:00 By Robert Purchese

They're swooping over an industrial landscape now. There's an explosion and the ship seems to be going down.

21:01 By Robert Purchese

They've landed and are leaping into the action. There's a close up of the hands of the guy demoing the game.

21:01 By Robert Purchese

There are explosions and gunfire sounding everywhere. The player is taking out enemy after enemy. Nice blood splatters on the floor, smoke and fire all over the place.

21:02 By Robert Purchese

Snippets of gameplay. All very busy and cinematic. Very immersive. Moving into a building now, again very dingy and run down.

21:03 By Robert Purchese

The general consensus of those who were at the Killzone 2 event last night seems to be that it's looking better than they expected. This trailer is backing that up. Using sights on gun to zoom in and splatter enemies.

21:04 By Robert Purchese
