Sony quiet on leaked info rumours

PS3 price cut, Uncharted 2, LBP for PSP?

Sony Europe has declined to comment on the supposedly leaked contents of its staff annual briefing, dismissing the D+Pad report as "rumour and speculation".

The information, provided by an attending "source", included plans to be "more competitive" with PS3 pricing from March 2009.

Sony Europe boss David Reeves also said there will be technical innovations to come for both PS3 and PSP, although no details were given.

The source claims to have seen footage of Uncharted 2 and God of War 3, the latter of which apparently looked so pretty the mole couldn't tell if what he was seeing was CGI or not.

The trailer, we're told, showed Kratos destroying waves of skeletons and Cyclops with his trusty chain-swords, before hopping on the back of an eagle, killing it, and then staring into an immense cavern thought to be Mount Olympus.

Uncharted 2, on the other hand, was said to look much the same as Uncharted 1, which looked rather good anyway.

The source went on to say that Sony showed footage of LittleBigPlanet PSP, which Media Molecule has apparently been hard at work on for four months. Target footage of MotorStorm PSP was shown, too.

Apparently Sony Europe is also the pride of Sony Computer Entertainment, for the region has a higher PS3 installed base than Xbox 360.
