8:30pm Eastern (show starts at 9pm)
Hey guys. Im just getting setup now. I have multiple windows open. Im playing my moves in Pure Chess. I’m being a snarky dick on twitter. It’s good stuff.
I’m going to try to update this thread several times through the conference. If you are following the twitter stream it will be mostly repeat info.
Here’s some last minute predictions (that aren’t coming from rumors I’ve heard… just actual real predictions)
Sony pretends the Vita is selling well.
Killzone is announced but either isn’t dated or is dated 2013.
Some PSN game they show quickly looks cool as heck.
We feel moderately better about Sony after the conference is over.
They show more Vita games than Microsoft did 360 games (number to beat: 6 – haha).
More to come.
Sound Shapes being shown on stream at the sony blog. $15 for the ps3 and vita versions. Can’t see anything on the screen.
Dated: Aug 7th
Everyone is excited to see The Last of Us. Shocking stuff. This is why you need this live blog.
Still “pre-show” but they are showing Sly 4 on the ps3. I’m not thrilled that the majority of the Vita stuff we’re gonna see is going to be on both platforms, but this is definitely a game that i definitely would prefer to have on the Vita.
Waiting for the show to start. Waiting… waiting… hmm, ok, one more move in Pure Chess…
Started with a montage. Can’t believe it!
Here comes Tretton.
Cage coming on stage. Quantic Dream’s newest is up first.
Game called BEYOND. Greg Miller just pooped himself.
Actress playing lead role is Ellen Page.
Looks like supernatural Heavy Rain with better performances. Amazing stuff.
Date not given
Playstation Allstars Battle Royale is up.
Looks fun but not really my thing. Vita person won the fight though.
PSN+ has lots of free stuff, nothing mentioned for vita.
PSone games coming to vita this summer (its going to be august)
Assassin’s Creed Vita shown off very quickly.
Going to be a pack in sold. October 30th. Has 4gb memory card.
Showing off Ass Creed 3 now…
Ubisoft showing off PS3 games.
Ass Creed stuff on boats – looks amazing.
Far Cry 3 has 4 player co-op. Looks awesome.
When did ubisoft get so good?
Sony doing move stuff. Showing off a book peripheral aimed at kids. Good time for a snack.
Wonder book works with a Harry Potter something or other. Will sell millions. Not to me though. Sorry, I can’t get any hype going. I don’t mean to be dismissive if you’re excited.
Finally, now they are talking about the playstation suite. Not once do they mention the vita. WHAT. THE. FUCK. SONY!
God of war up now. Looks like god of war. Feels like the air has been let out of this conference.
This demo of the game just won’t end….
Dated: March 12, 2013
Last of Us is up now. Looks incredible.
But… the Vita feels like a no show at this thing.
Last of us demo is full gameplay. Is jaw-dropping,
Conference over. Sony doesn’t seem to notice that it has a new handheld.
Gonna write up an editorial-ish recap after I take the shotgun out of my mouth.
