Me too, I've had a good feeling about it for a while now! Can't wait!

all star battle royal cross play...yes
FlashXIII  +   1270d ago
Well it generated more excitement in me after their very first game announcement than the whole of the Microsoft conference. Onwards and upwards!

Think most of the more vocal people at E3 are more psyched for this too.. the amount of cheering for Sony is far superior to anything we've heard so far with the possible exception of after the Watch Dogs footage.

OK enough of this "Wonder Book - Book of spells"

Blacktric  +   1270d ago
Eventhough currently, it is the best conference of E3 2012 thanks to Beyond and The Last Of Us, to me this year's Sony conference was still lackluster due to not having any kind of big surprise reveals just like the last year's E3. They really need to stop revealing all of their announcements before the show. Not counting Beyond of course since it got leaked but still... There was no excitement to watch the conference since it is all about the stuff we already knew...

Agreed, Sony have to stop revealing all their games before hand.. it's a real buzz kill. However Beyond's announcement is definitely a highlight outside of Watch Dogs and the footage of the last of us was just so brutal.. both games are day one preorders for me.
darthv72  +   1270d ago
highlights...for me
god of war, all star battle royale, last of us.

I think the beyond game looks really deep and story driven.

Im not to keen on the wonderbook but my kids might like it. I never got into farcry like I did resistance and killzone.

Overall it was a pretty good showing. Especially the god of war footage.

That 10 minute WatchDogs video made me crap my pants. I am so burnt out on FPS and hastily thrown together games. This is what I have been waiting for. Take the graphics of Heavy Rain, add the map of GTA and add the ambiance of Deus Ex.

sikbeta  +   1270d ago
TLoU = Best of The Show
GOW:A = Brutal and Graphical Beast
PSBR for Vita + PS3 = what I was hopping!
Move stuff = hated it!!!

I want to know more about Beyond, like the premise :D
MaxXAttaxX  +   1270d ago
Beyond: Two Souls, GOW: Ascension and The Last of Us were excellent.
Dee_91  +   1270d ago
Scott Rohde wear that shirt ever e3... i dont think he ever take it off
SockeyBoy  +   1270d ago
Yeah I think Sony are going to focus on what matters to gamers...games! Best of luck Sony :D
CryWolf  +   1270d ago
Sony better Announce and show off the PS4 at there press conference for E3 2012, release new hardware in Q1 or Q3 of 2013 to be first beat MS failing Kinect/X360 Next Year.

The first game that should be on the PS4 is GOD OF WAR Ascension with Next-Gen graphics.
YOUGOTOWNEDLOL  +   1270d ago
Playstation Is going to win E3
I have a good feeling about it.
Simon_Brezhnev  +   1270d ago

laoboy_Smoke  +   1270d ago
Sony just makes u feel good about Ur business. The Last Of Us FTW!!!
InLaLaLand  +   1270d ago
Probably be underwhelming unless they show some Yakuza 5. Show some Vita games that won't be PS3 ports. I don't care about timed exclusive DLC content for games such as AC 3 and EA games.

I don't own a 360 and don't give a flying fuck about the MS conference.

Super Smash Bros clone, meh. God of War might be interesting. LBP Karting meh, create that shit on LBP 2. Last of Us, Uncharted 3 became sloppy at the end.

Most of the Vita stuff will be a TGS, Yakuza 5 too.

No I know what to expect from Last of Us.

you finished last of us?

was it good? Despite the sloppy ending?

"Last of Us, Uncharted 3 became sloppy at the end."
Oh how great was it?
Sgt_Slaughter  +   1270d ago
So what if SONY Battle Royal is a SSB clone... I love the idea! I hope they have something Portal related in the game... a Portal gun as an item would be the biggest troll weapon ever XD
gatormatt80  +   1270d ago
InLaLaland how much do you want for your copy of TLoU?? Name your price.
dark-hollow  +   1270d ago
Even in theory if we assumed that Sony and Nintendo shows gonna be plain, anything they will show will looks 1000X better after MS mediocre press.
Sandmano  +   1270d ago
Vita ports? There hardly been any dont worry I doubt there will be any ports.
Hoje0308  +   1270d ago
There are plenty of games to be interested in for the people that don't care about a shit series like Yakuza.
InLaLaLand  +   1270d ago
lol Yakuza is much better than the overhyped PS3 exclusives. Yakuza 3 had much more content than God of War 3. The reason I own a second PS3 is because of Yakuza (40gb PS3 blu-ray failure).

Yakuza 5 will shit on FF Versus XIII.

So GTTV wont stream Sony?
Surfaced  +   1270d ago
Might as well watch it directly from Sony.
AgreeFairy  +   1270d ago | Well said
The reason? Gametrailers/Spike are biased towards the 360 (and COD for that matter).

If you watched Microsoft's conference on GT then you may have noticed that they kept restarting the meter to the right when the COD video was shown. Why? Because everyone was hating it so they restarted every few seconds. People were aware of this and still kept hating on it. By the end of the conference when they talked about the ratings they said that Microsoft finished strong with COD (despite everyone hating it) and they didn't show the data from the COD part of the show.

Also, they had another poll after the show.


They didn't like this either so they altered the votes too.

forevercloud3000  +   1270d ago
OMG!!!! I thought it was only me that noticed these things. I had my meter firmly on nuetral at the begining but then once all the kinect crap and Multiplat games came I put on Hate. I noticed that entire part pretty much was bottom lining on the meter. Then close to the end of the show when COD showed up the meter kept "rebooting" my choice of HATE but the hype STILL never went above just mid and stayed relatively low. I figured most were spamming the HATE in disgust just like I was.

And I saw the Love or Hate one too. It was definitely one sided and if they altered it to make it look less impactful I will never trust them again. That conference was AWFUL, plain and simple.

Its funny that they thought they could even use this method to tally popularity when the only real contender of the show they won't be covering. How does that work?
jack_burt0n  +   1270d ago
Had no idea they were not even airing the sony conference that is just turd turd turd spit on them.

BubloZX  +   1270d ago
awful? that was good!
A white ps vita with a 4 gig memory stick and Assasins creed 3 liberations for $249, A ps3 Assassin's creed bundle. Vita now gets full ps1 support,Youtube, and hulu. Plastation allstar crossplay for vita and ps3. a COD with a different story on vita. far cry and AC3 exclusive dlc. AC3 cross play content. Playstion suit(mobile) is coming to HTC! we knew about the ps3 games but comeone the only thing that could have made that better was the annoucment of the PS4 and a few other exclusives we haven't heard from in awhile. But overall it was good. And besides that book it sees=ms they're trying to work the Move back into the game.
koston3647  +   1270d ago

does anyone know if the live stream to our PS3s will be in HD?
Surfaced  +   1270d ago
It's roughly the same quality as posted above, but with a slower framerate.

The best option is to watch it from the PlayStation Blog (above) or http://us.playstation.com/e...
Qrphe  +   1270d ago
An minute ago, realizing the quantity of games to be shown, I was expecting this to be a great E3 for Sony. A few moments ago, I realized that I hadn't accounted for all the Vita stuff. Oh man oh man, this is going to be SO enjoyable to watch :D
MattyG  +   1270d ago
How long do you think the press conference will be?? 40 mins in and havent even shown half the games
kma2k  +   1270d ago
Im just happy this wont be going on until after i get home from work!
Sharingan_no_Kakashi  +   1270d ago
Meh. I'll watch it on cable... in hd.... on my 40inch.
sandman224  +   1270d ago
Sony for the win. I hope they take a pooh on the Xbox.
smashcrashbash  +   1270d ago
@ InLaLaLand. Good thing you played everything in advance for us and told us how it will be. Now we don't even have to watch the conference. Thanks man. Time not wasted

I really do hope Hideo-the-man-Kojima will announce something exciting at the Sony presser.

Will it be a teaser for Project Ogre? hmm...

I am mostly looking forward to The Last of Us, but also curious if Agent is actually showing at the presser... Beyond games, I am very curious to see what this rumored cloud partnership might bring if its real.
