Sony E3 Conference

Live report, story index. Portal 2! GT5! Twisted Metal! Move date and price! Killzone 3 date! Exclusive DLC!

It's all over! Sony wins the E3 prize for managing to break our web servers, incidentally - apologies if you experienced any difficulties accessing images. Tons of announcements though! Here's a full rundown followed by Ellie's chronological live text coverage of the two-hour Sony conference:

- PlayStation Move priced and dated
- Portal 2 coming to PlayStation 3
- Gran Turismo 5 out in November
- Twisted Metal for PS3 in 2011
- Sony unveils subscription PSN option
- Sony announces 3D line-up
- Killzone 3 due out in February 2011
- Heavy Rain receiving Move controls
- Single-unit surround system for PS3
- Sony ties up DLC/pack-in exclusives for MOH, Dead Space 2, Brotherhood, more

Original introduction: Sony's E3 conference last year may have lasted for 17 hours, but you could understand why if you were a fan of exceptional-looking games, with the likes of Uncharted 2: Among Thieves - later a Game of the Year candidate for virtually everyone - each receiving a deserved and lengthy runout.

This year's "slate" is full of known quantities by now, so we can probably expect similar demos from games like inFamous 2, Killzone 3, MotorStorm: Apocalypse, Gran Turismo 5 and LittleBigPlanet 2.

PlayStation Move should be out this year too, so a date and some confirmed software seems likely after its GDC showing. It'll be interesting to see how close it ends up to Microsoft's Kinect (or won't be interesting, depending on your hardcore gamer rage threshold).

There should be some surprises as well. Last year we had news of Final Fantasy XIV and Rockstar North's Agent. Granted, FFXIV turned out to be on PC as well, and Agent is about as tangible as an invisible cloud in another dimension, but keep your chin up.

Look out for Sony's conference to start at 12pm PST / 8pm BST, and for Eurogamer's Ellie Gibson to provide commentary.

Our live coverage of this event has finished.

Coverage

Right then.. The last platform holder conference of E3 2010 is about to kick off and we're ready and waiting, sitting in a big old auditorium full of big screens and blue lights.

Tom Bramwell

On the screens are images of falling PS3s, PSPs, 3D glasses, DualShocks, first-party games and Move controllers. It's raining technology!

Tom Bramwell

The lights are going down. People are clapping.

Tom Bramwell

Who will it be? Jack? Kaz? That giant enemy crab man? Ah, how we miss him.

Tom Bramwell

A montage! Iron man, bowling, Move Party, cars, PS3 slim, DualShocks, games, all that sort of nonsense.

Tom Bramwell

Please welcome Jack Tretton! Welcome back Jack.

Tom Bramwell

"Wow. Check out this stage, I feel like I'm at a U2 concert."

Tom Bramwell

He's warning us that we're going to get a lot of action and great product. Product. No need for ponchos though. Haha.

Tom Bramwell

Jack reckons Sony has momentum on its side and is starting to hit its stride.

Tom Bramwell

10 years ago, Sony wanted to build a home entertainment device that was futureproof and constantly evolving. "Less than four years into this lifecycle, we're living that vision."

Tom Bramwell

Jack reckons it's the only console with something for all the family - Blu-ray, gaming, rumble. Lest we forget.

Tom Bramwell

Jack's introducing Kaz Hirai. Kaz is smiling broadly, probably because he's now president of almost everything at Sony.

Tom Bramwell

First PlayStation is about innovation and second about content, says Kaz, and it's going to take both to the next level this year.

Tom Bramwell

He's talking about 3D - everyone in the audience has 3D glasses. He wants PlayStation to do for 3D what it did for Blu-ray.

Tom Bramwell

Having an installed base of more than 35 million PS3s that are 3D ready will be helpful, reckons Kaz. Doubt they have 35 million 3D TVs to be fair.

Tom Bramwell

20 titles created natively in 3D by the end of March 2011.

Tom Bramwell

"There is nowhere where 3D is more defined than with PlayStation 3." Now we're getting a 3D demo of Killzone 3 from Hermen Hulst from Guerrilla Games.

Tom Bramwell

On screen is a Helghast with all blood coming out of him. Nice.

Tom Bramwell

"Players will have access to dynamic new weapons" and face "tougher and scarier enemies than ever before".

Tom Bramwell

Plus you'll be able to play in 3D. Time to put on our 3D glasses!

Tom Bramwell

We're fighting some flying sods in the bowls of a tanker which is open to the icy elements. Apparently we're in the north of Helghan. Blood splatters the screen, muzzle flare lights everything up kaleidoscopically. Yep, it's Killzone.

Tom Bramwell

This is mental, it has to be said. It does feel as though you're looking into the screen. Particularly impressive to look up and see a smoke trail as if it's going right over your head.

Tom Bramwell

It seems as though everything is a little out of focus to me, but I might just be a bit tired.

Tom Bramwell

Now we are wielding two weapons and apparently using some kind of jetpack to hover around an icy environment. The water's surging around the ice floe. Very cool.

Tom Bramwell

Moving inside again and past flapping tarpaulin and through snow floating on the wind. You can see the individual flakes at different distances in 3D.

Tom Bramwell

More blasting now. The front of the screen is spattered with blood as we take hits, reminding us we're looking through a screen, which is a bit odd.

Tom Bramwell

It's quite disorienting with all the running, jumping and blasting. Time to prep some sort of bomb while being shot from behind. Boom! Stuff blows up. Fade to black Applause. Time for the second demo.

Tom Bramwell

We're riding one of the dropships with a big old gun mounted on the front. Blasting away at some metal structures which collapse and explode accordingly.

Tom Bramwell

Dogfighting now. But only for a few seconds - and the demo's over.

Tom Bramwell

Killzone 3 will be available worldwide this February.

Tom Bramwell

It's exclusive to PS3, says the man, as if this is exciting news.

Tom Bramwell

It will have Move functionality at launch. An American in the audience just yelled "THANK YOU".

Tom Bramwell

Bye bye, Dutchman! Hello, Kaz! "How about that?" How indeed, Kaz! And we've had our first Sony mention of the word "experience". That's the 893282th time we've heard the word in two days.

Tom Bramwell

The Sly Collection - "Remastered in high definition."

Tom Bramwell

Crysis 2, Mortal Kombat, Shaun White Skateboarding, Ghost Recon, Tron, NBA 2K11 - all in 3D. What no Hannah Montana?

Tom Bramwell

Experience count: 2.

Tom Bramwell

Make that 3. "it's the closest thing you will ever experience to being in the game itself." Unless you take loads of drugs and play the Mario Kart Rainbow Road track.

Tom Bramwell

3D demo again now: telly. Football, whale sharks, bears. Not making it up.

Tom Bramwell

Images of the Move and DualShock now. Soundtrack nicked right off BattleStar Galactica. Actually come to think of it the PS3 looks like it was made by Cylons.

Tom Bramwell

Montaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaage! EyePet. Cars. EyePet again. Now you can see the weird catmonkey in 3D!=

Tom Bramwell

Baseball. The Fight. Killzone 3. What no Just Dance 2?

Tom Bramwell

Tumble. Looking not unlike Boom Blox.

Tom Bramwell

Mortal Kombat. Someon just got sliced vertically in half. Marvellous,

Tom Bramwell

Gran Turismo, Sly.

Tom Bramwell

The audience is whoooing and cheering. Jack's back. He looks a bit like he might be sick.

Tom Bramwell

It's not about life cycles any more, says Jack - it's about "how many ways you can be relevant in people's lives".

Tom Bramwell

Continued growth and expansion blah blah. Come on Jack, graphs out for the lads.

Tom Bramwell

"Since last year we've had a huge influx of consumers" diddly diddly dee.

Tom Bramwell

"Consumers are appreciating all the ways it connects to their lives." Kinects? Perhaps not.

Tom Bramwell

"The difference comes down to one word: realism." Move can replicate every subtlety biddly biddly bing bong.

Tom Bramwell

Peter Dille is on stage now. He's going to tell us more about Move. His hair is the same colour as his suit.

Tom Bramwell

"PS3 is defining and introducing leading edge technology."

Tom Bramwell

It's about "a new level of precision". Experience count: 4.

Tom Bramwell

Precision and Experience are Peter's favourite words. He probably called his children after them.

Tom Bramwell

Whether you're casual or hardcore, you'll go batsh** crazy for the Move, says Dille. (Paraphrasing.)

Tom Bramwell

A video. Developers talking about Kaz's magical wang while waving one around.

Tom Bramwell

It's all about precision and one-to-oneness. And firing imaginary bow and arrows, looks like.

Tom Bramwell

The comedy suit guy is having a bit of a dig. "It's got buttons, which is great for people who enjoy shooters or platformers or anything which doesn't involve catching a big red ball."

Tom Bramwell

That nice man who invented the EyePet is on-screen now. He's so nice and French. I hope he doesn't know how much his weird catmonkey frightens me.

Tom Bramwell

The video's over. Dille is going on about the buttons on the Move now. And the casual hardcore thing again.

Tom Bramwell

"When you combine motion control with a new level of precision" OH SHUT UP ABOUT THE PRECISION

Tom Bramwell

Sorry Peter it's been a long day.

Tom Bramwell

In summary: Blu-ray + Move + 3D = MAX FUN whether you're a hardcore gamer or a little girl, says Dille. (Paraphrasing.)

Tom Bramwell

"We're not here to show the same games over again." Ooh burn.

Tom Bramwell

But thank goodness, obviously.

Tom Bramwell

A Sorcery logo is on the screen. It's a first-person action adventure game for Move.

Tom Bramwell

You play a sorcerer's apprentice who must save the world from darkness.

Tom Bramwell

The producer is on stage. He's going on about total sense of immersion etc.

Tom Bramwell

"Enough talking, let's see Sorcery." Sexy.

Tom Bramwell

On-screen is a magic gate, out of which steps a boy in a cloak. We're in a castle. All looks a bit Fable.

Tom Bramwell

There's a cage hanging from the ceiling with a squawking monster in it.

Tom Bramwell

The producer man waves his arm around and the character waves his wand. He flicks it and a shower of sparks fly out.

Tom Bramwell

A frog starts leaping towards it but he splatters it with the wand.

Tom Bramwell

Now he's freezing frogs, then flicking the wand again to make them shatter.

Tom Bramwell

Into the next room, where there's a polymorph potion on a table. This turns our hero into a rat so he can reach new areas.

Tom Bramwell

The ball changes colour to let you know when the potion is ready to drink.

Tom Bramwell

Oh, they're not frogs, sorry, they're goblins. Easy mistake to make.

Tom Bramwell

He casts a whirlwind spell to sweep all the goblins up, then sets fire to them.

Tom Bramwell

You can also create walls of flame to keep enemies at bay.

Tom Bramwell

Could do with one of those for the comments threads.

Tom Bramwell

He charges up another spell and takes out a huge group of enemies bounding towards him at once.

Tom Bramwell

Now Harry sorry The Main Character walks into the next room. A huge gobline bursts out of the grand and lurches towards him. Sorcery is coming in spring 2011.

Tom Bramwell

Dille is back. He's welcoming Andrew Wilson from EA Sports on stage.

Tom Bramwell

He's talking about Tiger Woods and Move. One to one precision blah blah.

Tom Bramwell

Andrew has gone for the well-ironed shirt, smart jeans, shiny shoes look. Bet this is what he wears on Casual Fridays.

Tom Bramwell

Andrew is showing how you get feedback on your movements. You can see how you're doing via an arrow on-screen as you line-up your shots.

Tom Bramwell

Andrew needs to pay more attention to the feedback on his movements. He just failed to hit the ball.

Tom Bramwell

A palpable hit! Not a very good one though. Let's try that again.

Tom Bramwell

The ball goes soaring into the sky... And the bunker.

Tom Bramwell

"It's about feel," says Andrew. That's what Tiger said.

Tom Bramwell

Why isn't Andrew doing any Tiger Woods As Sex Maniac jokes? Missed opportunity.

Tom Bramwell

"Again, it's all about feel." What about hitting the ball well?

Tom Bramwell

"It's all about feel." This is like Caddyshack. Be the ball, Andrew. BE the ball.

Tom Bramwell

Putt Preview - when you've got enough Focus, you can take a closer look at the shot you're lining up. Andrew lines up another shot. Cinderella story.

Tom Bramwell

It's in the hole! Well done Andrew. All the best for the future.

Tom Bramwell

"Have a great show and happy golfing."

Tom Bramwell

Dille is back now. He managed five whole words without saying "precision" this time.

Tom Bramwell

"Key franchises play a big role in the plan for PlayStation Move."

Tom Bramwell

Heroes on the Move is being revealed. Sly, Ratchet, Jak and their sidekicks all on screen.

Tom Bramwell

"When great heroes assemeble, there unfolds a brilliant pageant of style and grace... But not with these heroes."

Tom Bramwell

Footage of all six characters in platform environments - some futuristic sci-fi, some rural, some rustic.

Tom Bramwell

"Coming soon." Heroes OTM is a working title. Looks top.

Tom Bramwell

More than 130m packages are going to highlight Move and PS3.

Tom Bramwell

Packages of coke, that is.

Tom Bramwell

Packages of cocaine, that is not.

Tom Bramwell

"This is going to be one of the biggest brand partnerships we've ever had." Coming this autumn.

Tom Bramwell

PlayStation Suit Guy is on the stage!

Tom Bramwell

"Hey Peter, you look like you could use a coke." Or some.

Tom Bramwell

"Don't believe everything you read on the internet," says suit guy.

Tom Bramwell

"Pew pew pew," he adds.

Tom Bramwell

"So am I crazy or did I see a hundred French acrobats prancing round an arena the other night? I hear there was a sale on ponchos."

Tom Bramwell

"I say it's time we focus on what really matters." The situation in the gulf? "The games."

Tom Bramwell

"I love headshots, I love drifting the corners at a hundred miles an hour... Gaming is having a ridiculously huge TV in a tiny one-room apartment."

Tom Bramwell

"Staying up till 3am to earn a trophy that isn't real... But is."

Tom Bramwell

"And it's girls who know that the way to a man's heart is through a melee attack." What's a melee attack?

Tom Bramwell

"Millions of people are pretending to work while they watch this at their desk."

Tom Bramwell

"PS Move, your Mom can make your Mom jokes after she takes you to school in table tennis."

Tom Bramwell

"We can box using game characters which have important features like arms and necks." OOOH buerururururn!

Tom Bramwell

Swelling music. Image of suit guy with virtual bow and arrow on screen. "Every gamer is a true gamer."

Tom Bramwell

"We all serve one master, one team, and his name is GAMING. FOREVER MAY HE REIGN."

Tom Bramwell

"Butler for president," shouts a man behind me.

Tom Bramwell

Oh. Peter's back.

Tom Bramwell

Shame. That was brilliant.

Tom Bramwell

Not that we don't like you, Peter. It's just that if you say precision one more time I'll be unable to type anything but a series of 1s.

Tom Bramwell

Move launch details: Sept 15 in Europe, NA on 19, Japan on October 21st.

Tom Bramwell

Plus: Toy Story, Resi, Heavy Rain - will all get Move updates.

Tom Bramwell

Time for another video. A man holding a Move swings a wireframe golf club.

Tom Bramwell

He's playing TIger Woods, obviously. Just like Tiger played his wi- never mind.

Tom Bramwell

A woman launches a virtual volleyball in Sports Champions. Later on she's going to watch the Sex and the City movie again and maybe order a pizza.

Tom Bramwell

A little girl waves a wireframe paintbrush. Move Party now called Start the Party. Ain't no party like a magical wang party.

Tom Bramwell

EyePet, TV Superstars.

Tom Bramwell

Soundtrack is now I Like to Move It Move It. Had to happen.

Tom Bramwell

Time Crisis Razing Storm, Resident Evil 5 Gold Edition.

Tom Bramwell

Aragorn's Quest. Lord of the 7/10.

Tom Bramwell

Tron, Sorcery. Excitable child.

Tom Bramwell

Jack Tretton is back on stage. He's not sweating much this year. Maybe he had his glands removed.

Tom Bramwell

"The living room is no longer an actual space, it's a concept." No it isn't.

Tom Bramwell

It's PSP time. "PSP allows any serious gamer to step up your game." This is turning into The Apprentice.

Tom Bramwell

We're getting a sneak peek at Sony's new PSP advertising campaign. Well worth flying half way around the world for.

Tom Bramwell

It's that cute kid out of that film. You know the one. No, not Annie. The rude kid.

Tom Bramwell

"I consume a healthy amount of suckers online every day," says the kid. He's awesome.

Tom Bramwell

Marcuspsp.com if you want to see more.

Tom Bramwell

Jack: "The core gaming on PSP starts with the industry's best content." Yes yes Metal Gear Solid very nice. Next

Tom Bramwell

Invizimals now. At least we got all those frequent flyer miles.

Tom Bramwell

God of War: Ghosts of Sparta teaser trailer. Rain falls on stony ground. Kratos reflected by lightning in the puddles.

Tom Bramwell

Turns out he's standing on a cliff, looking towards a big citadel. A red flame leaps out from a castle. Kratos draws his sword and the teaser ends.

Tom Bramwell

"There will be mroe than 70 new titles coming to PSP by December." MONNNNNTAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAGE

Tom Bramwell

God of War. Ace Combat. MGS. Battle Raper II. Maybe not the last one.

Tom Bramwell

Gravity Crash. Then one of those Japanese games where the kids with spikey hair kick seven shades out of each other.

Tom Bramwell

Invizimals. Is Invizimals the new Hannah Montana?

Tom Bramwell

Fat Princess. Some old Tetris rip-off. EyePet. Kingdom Hearts.

Tom Bramwell

Jack is standing in front of the screen, watching the montage avidly, as if he's never seen it before.

Tom Bramwell

Montage end. Jack again.

Tom Bramwell

More than 50m registered PSN accounts. "PS3 is the most connected console on the market."

Tom Bramwell

Casting call for The Tester Season 2 begins today.

Tom Bramwell

He's showing off about all the telly you can get on PS3 now. IF YOU LIVE IN AMERICA.

Tom Bramwell

Home now. "We have replicated our booth completely in Home," so you can visit it if you're not at E3. At least the films on the flight were good.

Tom Bramwell

"From hardcore to family friendly types," badadadadadadddaaa

Tom Bramwell

ModNation Racers now. Yes thank you Jack we are familiar with your work.

Tom Bramwell

"Here to show us LittleBigPlanet 2, please welcome Alex Evans."

Tom Bramwell

"In LBP2 we're staying true to the play create share ethos, but we're also massively expanding all these areas," says Alex.

Tom Bramwell

New community and share features, etc. But it comes down to making fun games, says Alex.

Tom Bramwell

Puzzlers, shooters, driving games... You can make the lot.

Tom Bramwell

We're seeing a simple game now where you just press the circle and x buttons to make shapes fall through a tube. Looks simple, indeed, but fun.

Tom Bramwell

"Each player gets their own score which can be set by the creator." At the end of the game you see how everyone did on a map.

Tom Bramwell

Game called CrashyCrash now - sackboys trying to bump each other off a platform. Top-down view. Bit Fuzion Frenzy.

Tom Bramwell

Lastly - multiplayer competitive action. Characters floating round with jetpacks, firing projectiles at each other, using rocket hats. ROCKET HATS!

Tom Bramwell

Never mind the Move, where's my Sony Rocket Hat?

Tom Bramwell

They invited some top game creators to the MM offices and gave them 24 hours to run wild with the LBP tools. We're seeing footage of what they created. Top-down shooters, sumo-type game.

Tom Bramwell

Top-down racers, real-time strategy title with multiple units, a psychedelic 3D shooter. None of these look like your typical LBP platformer.

Tom Bramwell

That's it from Alex. Jack's back on stage.

Tom Bramwell

He's going on about how PSN is free, not $50. OOh burn. "That will remain the case."

Tom Bramwell

PlayStation Plus - PSN users get options to new features and content. It's a subscription service.

Tom Bramwell

You will get early demos, party invitations, beta invites, discounts on products in the PS Store. "It's a full product offering." HOW MUCH, JACK.

Tom Bramwell

One year sub - $49.99, three months - $17.99. Starts later this month.

Tom Bramwell

Trial for InFamous, two PSP Minis, plus other DLC including map packs and avatars up for grabs when you buy a sub.

Tom Bramwell

Also you'll get Qore. Core.

Tom Bramwell

"It's a great choice to help elevate your PlayStation gaming experience."

Tom Bramwell

More Electronic Arts stuff now. They're supporting all PS initiatives, including network, 3D and Move.

Tom Bramwell

John Schappert is on stage now. Alright, Schappers.

Tom Bramwell

"15 years ago, EA and Sony locked horns over the launch of PSone." Is this going to be like at a wedding when the drunk uncle does a speech about how they're all over that funny business Mary had with the milkman?

Tom Bramwell

Medal of Honor. Exec producer Greg Goodwin is here. "This year MOH is moving out of WWII and placing gamers in the boots of today's soldier in Afghanistan," says Greg.

Tom Bramwell

They've been working with the US military to create a truly authentic modern war experience. Haven't the US military got better things to do?

Tom Bramwell

Video. Soldiers jumping out of helicopters, running across deserts.

Tom Bramwell

Quad bikes and jeeps racing through mountains.

Tom Bramwell

A series of videos will be unveiled on 28 June, in which the operatives who worked on the game will share their experiences.

Tom Bramwell

DICE has been working hard to create a rich multiplayer experience and personalised weapons.

Tom Bramwell

You also get unlockable beards. UNLOCKABLE BEARDS. AND ROCKET HATS. TAKE THAT RIVALS!

Tom Bramwell

More footage. Machine guns blast the business out of an army camp and everyone in it.

Tom Bramwell

Play the beta 21st June.

Tom Bramwell

Not quite enough time to grow an actual beard then.

Tom Bramwell

Limited edition to include high-def remake version of Medal of Honor: Frontline.

Tom Bramwell

Next up: Dead Space 2. Live demo from exec producer Steve Papoutsis.

Tom Bramwell

It's business as usual - space, monsters, running through corridors.

Tom Bramwell

Blam blam biddly bong let's all go to space and have a fight.

Tom Bramwell

Schapperrrs! Dead Space 2 limited edition pack - you get 2 and Extraction, now with PS Move support. Exclusive to PS3. Well, yes.

Tom Bramwell

3D Crysis yes we know, Madden, FIFA, NHL, NFS all coming to PS3, yes Schappers, also can you tell us what colour the sky is.

Tom Bramwell

He's gone off to find out. It's Jack Tretters again!

Tom Bramwell

Conference interrupted by an Aperture Sciences announcement. Yes, it's Portal 2.

Tom Bramwell

Gabe Newell is on stage.

Tom Bramwell

"I've been pretty outspoken in my comments about next gen consoles, so I'd like to thank Sony for their gracious hospitality and not repeatedly punching me in the face."

Tom Bramwell

"It's not just about rendering pixels, it's about giving gamers a complete social experience." Oh, not you as WELL, Gabe.

Tom Bramwell

Portal 2 will be coming to PS3.

Tom Bramwell

It will have Steam features. "That will make the PS3 version of Portal 2 the best version on any console." OOOOOH BURRRN BURRRRRN HELP EVERYONE IS ON FIRE

Tom Bramwell

Trailer. "It's been a long time. How have you been?"

Tom Bramwell

Says GLaDOS.

Tom Bramwell

"We can leave our differences behind us for science, you monster."

Tom Bramwell

Super-fast clips of portals and robots and that.

Tom Bramwell

Tretters: Squenix have been working on FFIV. Yes fine good. Oh look a trailer.

Tom Bramwell

Little wizards, Robin hood types, spiky hair, eye patches, soaring strings, dragons, syringes. Maybe not the last one.

Tom Bramwell

Tretters talking Mafia II now. Exclusive day one content for PS3. "Loads of new missions and hours of additional arcade gameplay."

Tom Bramwell

"Oobisoft" now. Ass Creed Brotherhood - exclusive pack of missions only available on PS3.

Tom Bramwell

Multiplayer beta will only be on PS3.

Tom Bramwell

World premiere look at the multiplayer now. I.e. a video.

Tom Bramwell

A man chases another man along a rooftop. One leaps to another, the other follows.

Tom Bramwell

Another character comes out of the shadows and knifes him.

Tom Bramwell

Basically it looks like you can stalk people and murder them. Brilliant.

Tom Bramwell

November 16th 2010 innit.

Tom Bramwell

Tretters: "Exclusive has become my new favourite word." And we thought it was experience.

Tom Bramwell

Imagine the board meetings between Tretters and Dille: "Precision." "Experience." "Precision." "Experience." "Precision." "Experience."

Tom Bramwell

Time for the nine thousandth montage of the conference.

Tom Bramwell

All the shooters we've seen today. American Football. Basketball. Tiger. MotionWiiSportsKinectChampions or whatever it's called. Catmonkey.

Tom Bramwell

Echochrome. Ratchet. Sly. Clank. Gran Turismo. ModNation. Hard to tell the difference. If you're me.

Tom Bramwell

True Crime. Street Fighter - looks like Ryu fighting Wolverine?

Tom Bramwell

Castlevania. Sorcery. Again.

Tom Bramwell

DC Online. Sly. Final Fantasy XIJIVICXIVJUIZIXIXV, LEGO, Spider-Man. Ow my eyes.

Tom Bramwell

Jack has another announcement for us... GT5...

Tom Bramwell

Video first. Shiny shiny shiny cars. Cars so shiny they look like they've been made fo mirrors and drizzled with olive oil.

Tom Bramwell

Rally cars. Sports cars. Red cars. Black cars. Roads. Top Gear: The Test Track on show. The Stig driving a car. It is shiny.

Tom Bramwell

Brrrrrrooooooooooooooooooom.

Tom Bramwell

Sebastian Vettel recording things in a studio. Adrian Newey and Kazunori nodding. November 2 2010.

Tom Bramwell

That's North and Latin America. Will be playable in 3D then too.

Tom Bramwell

"Raise the bar" tick.

Tom Bramwell

InFamous now. Or rather the sequel, obviously. Video of a man running along a rooftop. Again.

Tom Bramwell

Creeping along ledges, hanging off telephone wires.

Tom Bramwell

A bloke called Bertrand is giving a speech. Looks like an evil dictator of some kind.

Tom Bramwell

Montage of our hero running round, hitting things, avoiding explosions. He appears to be able to make ice come out of the ground. Great for barbecues.

Tom Bramwell

Giant horned boss just seen in the distance. 2011.

Tom Bramwell

It's the home stretch, says Tretters. One last surprise.

Tom Bramwell

Live action video. NYC taxi drivers having a chat about some great game with speed, strategy and skill.

Tom Bramwell

Car combat games, they're talking about. Is it...

Tom Bramwell

Taxi man throws his cigar on the ground and drives off. Camera pans around cigar. Feet walk up to it. Gloved hand picks it up. Spotty trousers.

Tom Bramwell

Yep... He sets fire to the hair on top of his clown mask. Behind him, dozens of similarly coiffeured chaps are standing. Twisted Metal then.

Tom Bramwell

A truck dirven by the clown just drove on the stage. It's probably Tretters under that mask. David Jaffe gets out of the van.

Tom Bramwell

Twisted Metal is the longest-running series in PS history. Didn't know that.

Tom Bramwell

Titled Twisted Metal, coming in 2011. Online team deathmatch mode being demoed today.

Tom Bramwell

Looks like you can drive helicopters, motorbikes, jetpacks?

Tom Bramwell

16 players online, 2 to 4 players online split-screen.

Tom Bramwell

Looks like you can even drive an Ecto-1.

Tom Bramwell

On-screen we can see a gritty, dirty old city, burnt orange skies and gunfire everywhere.

Tom Bramwell

New mode: Nuke.

Tom Bramwell

Another dilapidated city, but this one's all grey and rainy.

Tom Bramwell

You can fight your way up huge skyscrapers.

Tom Bramwell

It's all about fighting factions. The Sweettooth faction and the Dolls, inspired by Dollface. More will be revealed this year.

Tom Bramwell

Giant statues carried around by helicopters. You must destroy your rivals' statues before they destroy yours.

Tom Bramwell

Now we see Sweettooth and Dollface manning fixed gun turrets.

Tom Bramwell

Looks like a variation on capture the flag.

Tom Bramwell

You can drag people behind your car and watch them flip about.

Tom Bramwell

You can charge up vehicles to launch missiles, and human sacrifices.

Tom Bramwell

Sniper rifles look handy for taking out enemies. So do the motorbikes, which you can drive while wielding chainsaws.

Tom Bramwell

That's it for Twisted Metal.

Tom Bramwell

Sweettooth and his van are still on the stage now, looking sinister while Tretton bangs on about the future of entertainment. Odd.
