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...

Our live coverage of this event has finished

Coverage

19:17

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

19:17

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

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

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

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

19:25

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

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

19:28

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

19:31

The lights are down...

19:32

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

19:32

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

19:32

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

19:33

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

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

19:33

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

19:34

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

19:34

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

19:35

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

19:35

"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

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

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

19:36

Along with "a few other surprises..."

19:36

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

19:37

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

19:37

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

19:37

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

19:37

PS2 first. Has it really been seven years?

19:38

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

19:38

10 million units in 2007.

19:38

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

19:39

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

19:39

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

19:39

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

19:39

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

19:40

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

19:40

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

19:40

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

19:41

SOCOM PSP - lots of dramatic music and fightiness.

19:41

WipEout Pulse now. Zooom.

19:41

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

19:41

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

19:42

Silent Hill Origins - good grief that's disgusting.

19:42

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

19:42

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

19:43

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

19:44

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

19:44

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

19:45

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

19:46

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

19:46

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

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

19:47

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

19:47

Oh, the real Kaz is here! Bold.

19:47

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

19:47

Something in his pocket...

19:47

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

19:48

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

19:48

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

19:48

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

19:48

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

19:48

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

19:49

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

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

19:49

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

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

19:50

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

19:50

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

19:51

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

19:51

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

19:51

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

19:51

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

19:52

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

19:53

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

Will retail for USD 199.99 from September.

19:53

One more colour. Trumpeting! It's Chewbacca!

19:53

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

19:53

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

19:54

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

19:54

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

19:54

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

19:55

"This fall - only on the PSP."

19:55

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

19:56

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

19:56

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

19:56

20 million downloads.

19:57

It's Phil Harrison. No trainers!

19:57

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

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

19:58

80 first party games in development worldwide.

19:59

"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

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

19:59

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

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

20:00

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

20:00

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

20:01

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

20:01

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

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

20:02

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

20:02

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

20:02

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

20:03

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

RoSPA is going to have fun with that.

20:03

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

20:04

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

20:05

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

20:05

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

20:06

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

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

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

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

20:07

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

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

20:08

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

20:08

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

20:08

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

20:09

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

20:09

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

BOZEK! Not in the flesh, though.

20:10

"It really is like iTunes meets MySpace."

20:10

You forgot to mention YouTube, Bozek.

20:11

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

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

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

20:12

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

20:12

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

20:13

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

20:13

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

20:13

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

20:14

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

20:15

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

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

20:15

Bye bye Phil, and hello again Jack.

20:15

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

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

20:16

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

20:17

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

20:17

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

20:17

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

20:18

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

20:18

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

20:18

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

20:19

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

20:19

So we're on to the third parties now.

20:19

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

20:20

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

20:20

Based on current intellectual properties and new IPs.

20:20

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

20:20

Haze.

20:21

"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

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

20:21

He's blasting away and strangling enemies.

20:22

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

20:22

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

20:22

Melee attacks, getting on board a helicopter.

20:23

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

20:24

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

It's to help developers speed up game creation.

20:24

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

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

20:26

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

20:26

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

20:26

Night vision looks like fun.

20:27

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

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

20:28

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

20:28

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

20:29

NFL 08 - some sort of rugby inspired title presumably.

20:30

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

20:30

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

20:30

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

20:31

Medal of Honor Airborne.

20:32

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

20:33

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

20:34

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

20:34

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

20:35

"This Metal Gear Solid 4 is the finale."

20:35

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

20:36

"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

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

It's a hired hit Snake is needed for.

20:37

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

20:38

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

20:39

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

20:39

Snake's coughing and falling to the ground.

20:39

A solider grabs him - he pushes him off.

20:39

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

20:39

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

20:39

"I just don't fear death."

20:40

Cyborg chopping off limbs in ninja fashion.

20:40

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

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

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

20:42

Simultaneous worldwide launch, spring 2008.

20:42

"Exclusively on PS3", Tretton says again.

20:42

Kojima asks how it was. Everyone claps and cheers.

20:42

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

20:43

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

20:43

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

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

20:44

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

20:45

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

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

20:45

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

20:46

It all looks very Bladerunner and frantic.

20:46

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

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

20:47

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

20:47

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

20:48

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

20:48

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

20:49

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

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

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

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

20:51

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

20:52

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

Bowls of chillies used to create obstacles.

20:52

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

20:53

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

20:53

"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

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

20:54

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

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

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

20:55

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

20:55

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

20:56

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

20:56

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

20:57

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

20:58

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

20:58

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

20:58

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

20:59

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

20:59

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

21:00

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

21:00

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

21:01

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

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

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

21:03

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

The trailer's over, and Phil's back and thanking the Killzone 2 director for the demonstration. And now we're truly going back to Tretton to wrap it up.

21:05

He's banging on about being dedicated to new entertainment experiences and consumers.

21:05

Summing up - the new PS3 price, the new PSPs, 500 games for PS2, PSP, PS3 and PSN over the next few months.

21:06

"We look forward to a bright future together. Thank you very much."

21:06

And that's it. So, Sony, Microsoft and Nintendo have all done their conferences now... FIGHT FIGHT FIGHT!

    @Vandrius: Good point there, and if Gears doesn't demand Windows Vista, I just might get it for PC.
    SeesThroughAll 11 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 11 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 11 years ago
    Where's the GD status update on F1?!

    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. :-)

    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.

    " 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.

    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.

    old_skool 11 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.

    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 11 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.

    "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 11 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.

    @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.

    @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 11 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 11 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).

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

    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.

    penguin_overlord 11 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.

    penguin_overlord 11 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.
    Steroyd 11 years ago
    Fair enough. That's still less than half of what was claimed though...

    They even said they showed 7 of the 15 titles, in the conference.

    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.

    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.

    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.

    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.

    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.

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

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

    Effin hell, KZ2 is some of the nicest animation blending I've seen in a long time...
    Kiigan 11 years ago
    KZ2. He's emptying bullets into the baddies and they barely flinch until they run their dead anim.
    Psychotext 11 years ago
    Actually doesn't look as good as the other footage though. Maybe should have stuck with it.
    GiantHaystax 11 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 11 years ago
    More footage than the other vids, good.

    Wonder if Killzone 2 will be out in 2007? At least one big exclusive must be, surely?

    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.

    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.

    "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.

    Psychotext 11 years ago
    Ummm... so what, of course you should be able to launch a game from home.
    richardiox 11 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 11 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.

    Well after the KZ2 trailer I think Sony will be feeling pretty pleased with themselves, finally a killer game.

    MS is back on track... best console just got more reliable and has the best games out this year... have it! :D What more good news do they need aside from a price cut?... which is never good to announce too early.

    Go Sony GO.!!!

    Hope it goes right after lackluster MS and just plain horrible Nintendo one!

    Best thing about E3 so far, conferences starting on time :D
    penguin_overlord 11 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.

    Begins... almost.

    Let's see if they gonna cut the Euro PS3 price. If they do, I might actually start saving money.
    captainrentboy 11 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 11 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 11 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 11 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 11 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 11 years ago
    Shit! Completely forgot about the new MGS4 trailer, that MUST be in there. Can't wait.

    Psychotext 11 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 11 years ago
    captainrentboy: MS's conference was uneventful and unsurprising, while Nintendo's conference was like a bad fitness program advertisement.
    captainrentboy 11 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 :/

    Holy shit.. I did the MS conference, I did the Nintendo conference... not one fanboy that I could see. Clearly they've all been saving themselves up for this one.

    F*ck off back to your cave you sad wankers.
    Nostromo13 11 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 11 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?
    Psychotext 11 years ago
    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 11 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...

    To think that was a bad conference, from the MS and Nintendo ones we don't have anything we can take from the conferences at least Sony's ones you get at least one meme be it:

    Hopefully, this won't be as bad as the Nintendo one. As long as they at least show something new, it will be better.
    captainrentboy 11 years ago
    I think there's going to be a whole lotta 'HOME' love in the upcoming conference. That and MGS4, if it's still exclusive.

    Sony should take Kojima's family hostage and demand he make a statement that MGS4 will be eternally PS3 exclusive. Sony wins.
    macksed 11 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 11 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.

    Steroyd 11 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.

    Can't be any worse than Halo 3 flop at MS show, and Nintendo's conference aimed at soccer moms.

    If they go and do anything as bad as last year's, yes it can.
    freedumb 11 years ago
    C'mon Psygnosis (I mean Studio Liverpool). Give us a new G-Police! I'd also like to see how Wipeout PS3 is coming along, I don't care what anyone says, Fusion was the best. End of.

    Would be cool if they showed us a glimpse of what Team ICO are doing next as well.
