IGN - Sony's E3 2012 PlayStation 3 Conference Review

IGN - Mercifully, Sony finished off the show with The Last of Us, a far better exit than Microsoft’s earlier reliance on Call of Duty: Black Ops 2.

Sony showed flashes of brilliance as always, and its two stars could well figure in many folks' lists of top five games of the show.

The old company is weighed down by its own troubles, under-performers like Move and Vita and a crappy stock-price. This 2012 showing demonstrated its positives and negatives. Sony, ultimately, is all about shifting hardware. Note the crucial difference between its laudable plan to connect its own Vita with PS3 and Microsoft’s plan to connect any tablet or smartphone with Xbox 360.

We may soon forget this event as, next year, a new generation of hardware unfolds. But we’ll always have two games that promise much, standing out against the year’s host of meat-headed shooters. (E3, PS Vita, PS2, PS3, PSP, Sony) -

everything was fine except the the almost complete lack of new PSV software to show off.

I mean, they have Gamescom to continue rolling out console exclusives, but they really needed to strengthen the image of their handheld now.

I think having an all new CoD and Assassin's Creed that arent ports is going to be great for Vita sales this holiday
Pixel_Enemy  +   1343d ago
Even a trailer showing little to no gameplay of the COD vita would have been enough to wet the mouths of gamers and the media. A logo and mere mention of the game we already knew was coming but knew nothing else about just pissed us off and left us hanging.
NewMonday  +   1343d ago
its called Black Ops disclassified, so we know the campaign is standalone, but i hope the MP is cross-play with PS3 BO2
MaxXAttaxX  +   1343d ago
The highlights were
* GOW: Ascension gameplay
* The Last of Us gameplay
* Beyond: Two Souls reveal
* PS1 classics on Vita, along with unique COD and AC.
* Free full PS3 game downloads monthly for PS Plus!
* PlayStation Mobile for new Android devices.

I think this was just as good as MS' conference. Both companies topped the dogshit that was E3 2011.

But I think Ubisoft have won E3 so far. Waiting for Nintendo.
jeseth  +   1342d ago
Loved how Sony brought the games again. I agree above how it would have been nice to see more for Vita, especially gameplay. But God of War and The Last of Us did not dissapoint!Beyond looks interesting, will be fun to follow this games development.

Couldn't believe how brutal The Last of Us was! And how gorgeous it looks!

I was surprised there were no price drops. Its been a while and PS3 needs to be $199.
darthv72  +   1342d ago
so far
what I liked about e3:

MS - halo 4, gears spinoff, forza and the smart glass/ie9 announcement.

Sony - all star battle royale, last of us, god of war and the playstation mobile announcement.

Ubisoft - rayman legends and I just watched the watch dogs this morn on ign and was really blown away at what I saw.

Last of us had great gameplay footage but watch dogs is the one to watch.

Sony did okay; but with twenty games coming out, I wish they would have showed the games and not the non-game stuff that no one cares about. That book thing looked interesting for me to give to a kid, not for an adult. Save that stuff for another day when you have Games like Dust 514 that you need to put the word out on and games like The Last Guardian that needs a status update on, Sony.

Microsoft didn't do a bad job, they just didn't do a good job; they focused too much on services, which made me almost turn their conference. That Black-Ops footage was 100% animated, by the way. I'll be talking about that in my blog this week, Lord willing.

Nintendo won't be much better, if not worse; the Wii U is just an animated controller and I don't care for that much, although I did hear about the Wii zombie game so I'm excited about that.

I'm looking at the webpage ad on the left of this page with Bud Bundy talking.... Who the $*#* says "pwned" anymore?

Yup, Sony really dropped the ball, but I can't say I'm too surprised. When it came time for them to make or break the Vita and instill consumer/developer confidence in their Vita support, they failed. Getting ready to put mine back in the box until Persona launches...Very expensive paperweight.

Nintendo dropped the ball even further with the Wii U
They were supposed to convince gamers as to why we should get a Wii U soon instead of waiting a year or so for the next PlayStation or Xbox.

But they showed older multiplatform games and new games that can already be played on current PS3 and 360s.
They needed at least 1 or 2 big Nintendo exclusive announcements to make me want to buy a Wii U. The whole time I was like "where's the big reveal!?".

Not many that I'm interested in that have a release date/timeframe, unfortunately.

Gravity Rush-6/12: Might get at some point.
MGS HD Collection-6/12: Own the PS2 collection.
Lego Batman-6/19: Nope
Sound Shapes: No thanks
Madden 13-8/28: Bought this 7 years ago.
Fifa 13-9/17: Not a soccer fan
Persona 4-Fall: Atlus Fanboy
LBP-??: Will buy
Silent Hill BOM-10/1: WTF is this Konami?
Assassin's Creed 3-10/30: Need to see more first
Call of Duty-Fall: Hate
PASBR: Need to see more, but I already have Super Smash Brothers

Moving on past my release date analysis, I think the current release list is pretty lackluster. None of those games are going to bring the Vita sales out of the dumpster either.

Let the hatred begin, my Uncle Frank is calling me.

This generation is running on reserves as it is. Consoles are maxed out, PC is blowing away the competition when it used to lag behind. The time for new consoles is NOW. Nintendo know this, MS and Sony are too stuck up thier own ass in this console war to see that it's been SIX YEARS since we saw the 7th generation. I want an update and more importantly, I want cross-game chat and in game music for ALL games.

Of what I seen the wii u just showing another gimmick with the LCD controllers just like what wii did with the wii remote

Console war between Sony and Microsoft? The console war was not created by neither Sony or Microsoft, it was created by fan boys like you
Sony, Microsoft and Nintendo are in this for profit not for a console war
lelo  +   1343d ago
In all honesty, Sony's conference was even worse then Microsoft's. Severely lacking. I think Sony and Microsoft are pointing their guns to their next console, leaving PS3/X360 behind.

The middle of the conference was a snoozefest. Battle Royal crap (i don't get the appeal in this game). Hardly any PSV software (not a good sigh for the future of the console). God of War, Last of Us and Beyond: Two Souls look good, but too far away. Sony has no big exclusive for the rest of 2012.

What? It was much better than MS's. Last of Us really has me sold, just hope it presents a good difficulty. I was never really hyped for it as much as others until seeing that gameplay. Beyond also looks fantastic, those two alone make it better than whatever MS offered.
nik666uk  +   1343d ago

EVILDEAD360  +   1343d ago
I agree. Sony had a chance to destroy MS and honestly dropped the ball. All of the critiques MS took after their the last two E3s were on display with Sony last night.

Both had games that catered to their install base, I just feel like Sony's show overall was not better than MS this year.

It's a shamde because Last guardian would have parted the seas..

Lucretia  +   1343d ago
wtf? worse than MS's? all MS did was show 2 old IP's and make usher dance.

sony atleast showed off 3 of their new ip's. thats infinite times the amount MS has shown us in 3 years since MS hasn't had a new IP since the mediocre alan wake.

Sony's conference was fine, stop whining
Eamon  +   1343d ago
lol no. Regardless of how you found Sony's conference, NOTHING can be worse than Microsoft's.
jeseth  +   1342d ago
I think Sony's conference was better simply because they have tons of great games!

I liked MS's press conference but they are focusing so much on non-gaming features that I am wondering what audience they really care about. There are tons of options for entertainment in today's age and while I like that they are moving the 360 towards an entertainment hub like Sony has done with the PS3 ... I don't buy gaming consoles for movies, music, or internet. I have a game console to play games.

Like Halo 4 a lot, but after that I think Sony showed the reason we even care about E3 ... Video Games. Looking forward to see what Nintendo brings today.
EVILDEAD360  +   1342d ago
Lol @ pretending just because you have a new IP that proves your show was better. The move book game is a new IP and if Microsoft had spent the same amount if time on that fame that Sony did the entire outcry on N4G would have been that it was the worst E3 conference in history.

Again both had highlights and games to look forward to, but as for overall show, MS won IMO..

Mystickay86  +   1342d ago
@Evil - You sir are delusional. If only you didn't had that blatant "360" at the end of your name, I think I wouldn't term you a "360 fanboy".

I observed both conferences with no preferences in mind, and I saw Sony was better than MS. Ubisoft though dominated both.

Looking forward to Nintendo conference.
ronin4life  +   1342d ago
I can't really decide who was better content wise, but I know this:
Microsoft was better than I expected.(yes, I expected that little)
And Sony was worse than I expected.(although I wasn't expecting much.)

I think we all need to admit that Sony had a powerful setup and completely dropped the ball. Microsofts conference was better than last years, even though it wasn't great, and Sony's was worse.

Ubi topped them all so far though AND was a major factor at both ms and Sony's conf.

Ubi topped them all, though
beerkeg  +   1342d ago
Apart from Beyond and The Last of Us I wasn't impressed. It was pretty boring otherwise, GOW and Playstation Allstars were a bit of a yawn tbh.

And Wonderbook? My God, if MS had came out with that there would be memes for months based on it. Why it needed so much conference time I don't know.

Not a great E3 for Sony whichever way you spin it. It was slightly better than MS, but that's not something to jump for joy over.
morganfell  +   1342d ago
Sony brought games. Right off the bat it was games. It was about games. They didn't spend half an hour discussing programming, nor did they feel the need for celebrity endorsements or Grammy performances. It was about the games.

E3 floors open today in full and we'll be seeing more about a great many things, including Vita titles that were not in the presser.

It's also laughable to hear people discount Sony because Sony didn't announce a rumor into which a poster here placed far too much stock. Not that the person actually cared about the rumor being true, rather they are grasping any straw going over the cliff which they can throw at Sony.

The industry that has been so hard on Sony this generation on the whole acknowledges Sony fared far better yesterday than did Microsoft. However some people are so devoted they are going to say and believe anything.

Case and point:

As publicly requested, words were marked.

So let me get this straight..I'm 'delusional' because I said that in MY opinion Micrsoft had a better conference than Sony?

GTFOH..I at least back up my opinions. Take off the fan goggles and back up yours. If not keep it moving.

@ DK

I've been saying the same thing. Sony did show a couple of cool games, but the actual games that meant something didn't have release dates. Naughty has been upfront from day one that the game might not make it this year. But then what does that actually leave for the holiday season?

Lol, you can't be serious? Although, Sony didn't have the best conference they've ever had, it was surely better than Microsoft's. All we got from Microsoft was crappy Xbox apps, more Fable, more GOW, more Forza and more Halo. At least Sony made an effort with some new IP's.

This is coming from a neutral standpoint. I don't think anybody won E3 this year unless you include Ubisoft.

I see DK and Evil have the Microsoft goggles on again.

Halo 4 - second E3 appearance
Fable: The Journey - second E3 appearance
Ryse - had it's second E3 appearance last year
Gears of War 3 - announced early 2010, released fall 2011
Fable 3 - announced August 2009, released October 2010
Halo Reach - announced at E3 2009, released in fall of 2010
Star Wars Kinect - announced at E3 2010, released a few months ago

That's the bulk of MS's major releases, and almost all of them had two E3 appearances.

Of course, you guys spin it to sound like Sony is the only one that does it. The only two games you mentioned were Beyond and Last of Us.

Funny that you ignore PS Allstars, Ascension, LBP Karting, all of which were announced in the past few months and releasing this year, but could have just as easily been announced at E3. Or two years ago when Socom, MotorStorm, Infamous 2, Killzone 3, and LittleBigPlanet 2 were all announced in the few months prior to E3. Or Uncharted 2 and 3, which were announced under a year before their release.

Yeah, Sony probably does show more games at E3 that are further off than Microsoft does. Probably due to the fact that Sony offers more games, period, and spreads their other announcements out throughout the year. Sony doesn't need to hold back all their announcements to pad their E3 showing.

'I see DK and Evil have the Microsoft goggles on again.'

LMAO @ Beatkiddie that was sooo original after I used it as an earlier that all you got? See not only are you STILL wearing the Sony goggles, but now it's apparant you graduated to the entire helmet and visor. But came in here and started it

Let me school you on E3 appearances..

There is a difference between making an TRUE appearance on the E3 stage and merely showing a slide that shows the title of your game or a quck teaser that simply gets the announcement out there.

Halo 4 had a quick teaser last year with the announcement of Holiday 2012..guess when it going to be released. as advertised.

Fable: The Journey got a demo last year on the E3 stage and Micrsoft just simply showed the trailer and it will release this summer

Ryse was originally Codename: Kingdoms an announcement..then it got a teaser trailer announcing the new name..then it was announced that it would skip this gen entirely.

Gears made the stage twice because it got pushed back from it's original slot to the Halo September slot.

Etc Etc ETc..

BUT the TRUTH about EVERY one of those years..those games were NOT the big game Micrsoft was pushing for THAT particular year.

Micrsoft has almost perfectly executed it's huge releases and promotion of them at every single E3.

The only game that got killed was Alan Wake getting killed by Red Dead deciding to change it's date to match Alan.It ended up still doing a million plus.

This year it is a FACT, that Beyond, God of War, and Last of Us got some primo stage time at the show..All great games ..but NONE will be coming this year.

If you REALLY want to hype the fact that Super Smash Sony or the Little Big Karting game are coming instead then missed the point entirely.

See what is amazing is that those two games are casual games no matter how you slice it. But, NOW it's ok to say that it's oool to release casual games after non-stop hardcore hardcore hardcore is all that was heard from the rafters of the MS haters.

This post E3 is classic..

Only you would need to make up rules about what qualifies as a "TRUE" E3 showing and treat it as if it's fact. Just mindblowing. Only you would find a way to knock Sony on the basis that when they show games, they actually SHOW THE GAME.

Wheres the damage? You jumped in the convo tried to call names because you predictably were so b-hurt as usual at ANYONE daring to say ANYTHING that isn't negative spin like yourself.

But when someone direct that same negative right energy back at you and shows a counterargument you can't even come up with ONE point to back up your originl claims.

More childish names. Sad.

Are you even capable or carrying on an adult conversation without resorting to name calling even grade schoolers would find lame?

I don't need to dispute your little excuse arguments individually Evil. As I said, you made up your own little rules, and each one of them is irrelevant because only you want to play by those rules. Publishers don't. Gaming media don't. Gamers don't. Well, at least the logical ones.

When a game is revealed, it's because the publisher wants us to know about it. They want us to anticipate it and ask about it. If they want us to care, it counts.

But no. You act as if major announcements are non-existent, because they are revealed with a crappy teaser, or even worse, are revealed without a name attached. Like I said, only you would spin a substantial reveal as a negative. Because without those rules you've conveniently invented for yourself, you have to play by rules that the rest of the planet plays by, and you don't want that because you're desperate to find one more way to prop up Microsoft.

But, if you simply tease his lameness he the cries wolf on N4G to try to iply he's sooo insulted..but ignores thst FACT that he always starts it.

'Are you even capable or carrying on an adult conversation without resorting to name calling'

LOL..look my original point stands, I could care less what this lamde thinks. He will go on and on and spin negative but when you respond he puts his thumb in his mouth and literally tries to claim you are doing exactlty what HE'S been doing from day one.

Nuff said point original point still stands

MrBeatdown  +   1340d ago
You're posting in a public forum Evil, and more importantly, in response to the comments of others. Or was it too difficult to comprehend the meaning behind the "REPLY" button you clicked when posting all six of your comments? Of course you spin it to make it sound as if you're "minding your own business". More BS from you designed to warp reality. If it was your own business and you weren't putting it out there for everyone to see and comment on, you wouldn't be posting it, let alone directing it at the people you replied to.

It's amazing what nonsense you come up with.

And don't get me wrong. I'm definitely not insulted by such zingers as "beatkiddie" and "fan girl" that you've thrown out there. I find it more amusing, and indicitive of what kind of person it is I'm talking to. Name calling speaks volumes about a person's maturity.

It's also quite ironic that here you are saying "your original point stands" yet you were the one telling me I couldn't dispute what you replied to me with, even though I did.

You've invented rules to play by, because the logical, reality-based approach the rest of the gaming world takes doesn't give you the opportunity to sing your praises for Microsoft.

It's also kind of funny that thus far, I've listed nine games that Sony will or have released in under a year from release, in addition to seven recent MS games that were announced over a year ahead of time. Both lists represent the majority of Sony and MS's releases in the past two years or so. In two ways, I presented factual evidence the proves both you and DK wrong and even portrays the opposite of what you and DK suggest.

The best you could do in response was make up excuses about what qualifies as being shown to prop up MS. Like I said, only you could twist and warp the showing of actual game footage and an abundance of details surrounding each game into a negative that counts again Sony, while treating the announcement of a game but being unable to provide any information, footage, or in some cases, even a name, as a positive.

Ironically, you accuse ME of spinning things into a negative, but all I pointed out was that both companies do it. Only you would percieve being on par with Sony as a negative.

Of course, I wouldn't ever expect you to budge from your ridiculous stance. You never do because you're out to either fool the people reading your comments, or fool yourself. I'm not sure which, but it's pretty depressing either way.

Sony's was wasn't great or spectacular in any way.

It was disappointing was hoping they would reveal couple of new games besides just beyond, still was way better than Microsoft, the major low point of the show was they dragged on too much on the story book games.
Lazy_Sunday  +   1342d ago
They waited until the last minute on next generation hardware. That's mind-numbingly dumb. They're not going to get the up on 360 if they're going head to head next year. I knew they weren't going to announce anything spectacular and play it safe--the fact that they followed through on that shows me Sony doesn't care enough to keep it's brand afloat and take the first step.

Without the jump on Microsoft, you think people in the US are really going to take a risk like Sony over Microsoft especially after the network fiasco that happened last year? Not unless they can make up for it--and they're not even doing that. Loyal fanboy or not, you've got to be an idiot to disagree. We're late into next gen, devs have been gnawing at the two giants to move up and they're just playing it safe. I don't care if Sony's had a big falling out with the tsunami, 24FPS is not okay for new $60 games. Remember when we were saying CoD:Black Ops was "visceral 60FPS?" That was 40-59FPS. Well, this is "visceral 30FPS;" or 20-30FPS. From Crysis 2 to Skyrim, The Last of Us, FarCry 3, Assassin's Creed 3, and the list continues! The hardware is simply not good enough for the games.

Here is the thing. We have Playstation all stars, Gravity Rush, MGS Collection, LBP Vita, Sly, Assasins and COD (oh well my first COD purchase). The line up is not that bad. AC Liberation is the stand out because any AC game After AC2 gameplay wise minus mini games is phenomenal. I think that Gravity Rush is our Precursor legacy for the Vita and that we should all show support for this type of game. AC is the Zelda of the bunch and LBP is the Mario. The Vita should be just fine and there is a PS Direct from Japan either later this week or next week so we should relax. Ragnarok is coming too.

For Sony, you can only fit so many games into E3. It's obvious that Sony could've announced more games at E3 (which simply couldn't be said for Microsoft). But they chose to show that "Wonderbook" crap because they know that's what will NEED the most coverage for it not to fail.

No they didn't. Are you blind? Multiplats like Watch Dogs and Tomb Raider were the most impressive visually this time. GOWA looks like GOW3 and The Last of Us looks more or less like Uncharted 3 graphics. That's not to say they weren't impressive, but Halo 4 looked really impressive as well.

it was a decent show, at least i didn't felt like i was watching a advertisment program (like that george foreman grills or things like that), although i was thoroughly offended by book of spells, that shit don't have the right to be in E3.

luckly for them, the last 5 minutes or so of the show was good, so they could finish the show with a good touch, unlike microsoft that i just closed the tab with the feed when Black Ops 2 started...

still, they did best in the past, this one was so-so.

My summary:

-Vita got left out in the cold big time (good thing that they are in L.A.).

-The PS3 games looked amazing, but weren't all of them previously announced?

-Wonder Book kept me laughing the entire 15 minutes or so. It will be great ammunition against Sony fanboys from now on.

in my opinion it was good but not great

Good: The gameplay demos shown were really good.
Good: Even though we had seen videos of AC3 and FC3, they showed new footage to make up for it, though the visual diference from the PC version at Ubisoft conference was a little "shocking:
Bad: Not too many games shown, only one was a surprise (maybe 2 if you count AC Liberation)
Great: Beyond and The Last of Us footage.
Decent: Playstation All Stars BR and GoW Ascension(not bad by all means, but nothing surprising since it still was good'ol GoW
Terrible:Wonderbook demo, the tech looks interesting, but the demo dragged on for too long.
Terrible:Almost complete disregard for the Vita
Meh: Playstation Suite presentation.

So overall, a good show for the PS3, terrible for the Vita

Yeah, especially when that person couldnt even draw a number four on the move. Made it awkward.

Why would anyone be convinced to buy a Vita after today's showing from Sony. The Vita has no momentum and unless Sony does something soon its unlikely to start gaining any. I appreciate if you already have one you'll defend it, like I did the Go, but something needs to change otherwise its doomed to fail.
NBT91  +   1343d ago
I have one and it sucks, the system is awkward, having proprietary chargers and memory cards etc.

As well as that the only game worth playing on it is still only Uncharted GA, got it the day it came out and still not finished it. I am quite far into it, mind you, but still...

I do think that LBP coming to Vita will be the next game I buy for it, and im looking forward to that to some degree. Other than that though, the E3 conference did make me decide to buy a PS+ subscription (once the games start being offered later) and was like "Cool there is still a good few decent quality PS3 exclusives coming."

But as for the Vita, I am a PlayStation gamer and have been actually considering selling the Vita, while it is still worth something.
macalatus  +   1343d ago
My fellow Sony gamers, once again Sony's E3 conference showed that Sony is committed to delivering high-quality entertainment to an audience known for their core gaming values of classiness, maturity, and intelligence: The Sony Gamers!!

After watching an awesome demo gameplay footage of The Last of Us, I can't help but see the symbolism of Joel and Ellie (the game's protagonist) with that of the worldwide Sony gaming community. The struggles of Joel and Ellie to survive in a world gone decrepit greatly parallels the struggles of the superior and civilized Sony gamers fighting for true, traditional hardcore gaming in a gaming world gone casual. The savage, bestial foes in the demo represents the gamers who have degenerated themselves into allowing a certain "motion gaming" destroy the beloved Star Wars franchise; and for letting "Big M" rape their wallets for an ever increasing online access fee (for no reason at all but for greed). In all, the premise of The Last of Us symbolically represents the Sony gamers' fight to keep traditional gaming alive!

However, since E3 is an event for all gamers, including the Nintendo, PC, and Xbox gamers, I will not say anymore statements of ill intention. I'll admit that I'm happy for our 360 gaming brethren as it is rumored that Microsoft have an exciting, Kinect exclusive game called "Rear End Pump Action" where the 360 games get to play a gritty, British character called Ben Dover. For once, the classy, mature, and intelligent Sony gamers should be happy for them, and rightfully so!

Sony Gamers Lead the Way!

I'm just a little dumbfounded by what it is you people were expecting. They pretty much covered what they plan to do in the coming months. They covered the ps3, vita, and their network. They only get an hour and a half to wet people's appetite so they can't throw ALL the games within that time frame. That's what the rest of E3 is for, you all know it's 3 days long right??...

So what are you expecting from nintendo tomorrow?? Mario, more wiiU specs, WiiU demo, revamping their online community and the usual suspects of 1st party games...if that's all they show will you also say they sucked??...and you call yourselves gamers?

Agreed. I know that I'll get AC, Black OPs, and Royale for the Vita when they are released. But, I wish they had concentrated on the console a bit more than they did. Perhaps we will see more about Vita games at other 3rd party booths and presentations. There are at least 5-10 potential quality games coming out for the console before the end of the year, so its not all doom and gloom.

But the Sony conference began strong and ended strong and I can't begrudge that. More surprises would have been nice, though. Well, there's always Gamescom.

I don't care about tablet shareing or handhelds, I don't wanna watch tele or listen to music through a console. My consoles are for playing games, & from what I've seen there's enough coming to both my consoles especially with all the multiformats shown. But saying Sonys was any better than Microsofts is just yet another mines better than yours arguement. Grow up people.

No last guardian but wonderbook was shown. Unless you are a fanboy both ms and sony conferences were pretty even. Ms announced a lot of stuff butits not all necesary fo gamers and that's what e3 is about. I did however enjoy ms halo4, gears, horizon and the 3 new ips they announced look promising. With sony I enjoyed the beyond. And lastofus demo. Other than those and a few multplat games that both ms and sny showed the rest of the conferences were very mediocore. I would have said Ms beat sony since I seen more games and nice functionaliy being added to live but usher blew that for me. Overall tie. The real question did Usher beat Wonderbook with dance central 3 lol ....I kind of think he did as it was one song vs 15 to 20 minutes of child actors and bs.

Microsoft only showed halo and splinter cell with game play.both looked great but all the rest were videos not real time and usher dancing, not even showing the game he was dancing for, and plenty of new sports channels and Mexican bing search and Kinect angry birds.

vortis  +   1342d ago
@garos82, little butthurt much, bro?

I agree with Jazz4108. I actually thought I seen more games from MS? They had the Loco Cycle, Matter and that cool game Ascend. Maybe they just paced their conference better around features vs games. I nearly tuned out with all that Windows tablet talk.

Sony started strong, too, but the problem was that everything other than Beyond and that murder-worthy Move game were things we'd already known about. Still, Last of Us finally gave us a view of what the game will be like, and Beyond was a potential show-stealer.

I agree with everyone else, though, if PS Vita is supposed to hold people over until PS4 or is supposed to be an extension of the PS3, they didn't really showoff or announce anything memorable for it. They had an opportunity and squandered a lot of it on that terrible spellbook game.

I'm sorry but on the Molyneux scale that spellbook game was an 8/10
ceedubya9  +   1342d ago
Yeah, I found them about even too. Sony maybe slightly ahead because more of the exclusive games they showed were actually interesting to me. Both consoles will have their multiplats and casual offerings. Sony's would have been more exciting if they had revealed mostly all of these games well before e3. Most of them aren't even coming until next year. Microsoft's tried and true franchises will more than likely do well, but there aren't any real surprises there either. Nintendo has a good opportunity to really impress as their competition kind of just seemed to phone it in.

Those games were good but not huge blockbusters that i come to expect from E3. they could have shown those games at any confrence.

MS made their confrence way to much like CES.

showed a small amount of games and then mostly crap. My logic is sound give the trailer a chance if it bores me move on and tbh they bored me. Gametrailers top ten what we want from microsoft summed up the whole confrence in number 8 before it even aired.

So is this news that Sony has abandoned the Vita? They didnt announce any many new games for it and there's was no mention of a price drop anywhere so that leaves me thinking that Sony doesnt want the Vita to succeed. I wont sell my Vita but if Sony doesn´t do anything soon i will be forced to buy a 3DS then next year Sony will probably discontinue the Vita. I find that to be sad because its an excellent handheld and it deserves to reside in the market as the sole competitor of the 3DS to prevent Nintendo from having a monopoly and controlling the market.

The conference was decent with some really good games shown but at least it was much better than Microsofts.

i dont understand all the hate for the wonderbook thing it is aimed at YOUNG KIDS not GROWN UPS and from what i saw young kids will love it, also remember the harry potter is the 4th biggest selling franchise in history so it is guaranteed allot sales and dont forget this means sales of ps3's and Move's and more sales means more games to the rest of us.

as for the sony conference i was very happy with what they showed THE LAST OF US is a day one purchase for me and all the other games they showed and yes they could of shown more psvita stuff but i am sure there will be more shown on the show floor and there is other shows to come and they do need to show some new stuff there or everyone on here is going to say that that show sucks because you are all trying to get information about new stuff before the shows and they cry that there was nothing you did not know about just like this conference.

its is sites like this that spoil shows like E3 for all of us
vickers500  +   1343d ago
"i dont understand all the hate for the wonderbook thing"

Because it took up WAAAAAAYYYY too much of the conference and overstayed its welcome. A simple 2 minute trailer would have sufficed, but instead, we get about 10+ minutes of a painfully boring and akward gameplay demo that nobody except mothers who are looking to get their 3 year olds to play games cares about.

Almost anything else would have been better. How about some Last Guardian footage? ANY footage from some upcoming PS VITA games like killzone? Some information on The Agent? Any extra footage from Far Cry 3 like they did with AC3? A name or trailer from the new game sucker punch is working on? Any multiplatform footage where the dev has some kind of deal with sony (EA, Ubisoft)? Some Overstrike footage? There are tons more rumored and confirmed things they could have shown or announced in that time they wasted on that wonderbook crap.

This was a pretty disappointing conference. I love ps3, but I wasn't impressed by what I saw with God of War Ascension or The Last of Us. As for "Beyond", well the premise looked pretty interesting, and I like the fact that Ellen Page is the main actress, but we still don't really have a clue as to what kind of game it is or how we will be playing it. Is it a complex quicktime event game like Heavy Rain mostly was? Is it a third person game? Is it something new entirely? I don't demand gameplay from them, but I'd like some details at least.

I don't think there was a single thing that actually shocked me at this E3 other than Watch Dogs.

Microsofts conference managed to suck even more.
ceedubya9  +   1342d ago
I think what many of us need to realize is that we diehard gamers are an important, but small part of the plans of these companies. They want their respective consoles to be the center of the living room, and they can't do that by just focusing on the hardcore crowd. They want to provide options that involve families and make their consoles every day items. I'm not all that interested in these things, personally, but I have a wife and daughter and I appreciate the content that would be available for my family to be involved.
brolik86  +   1343d ago
Ok not to hate on MS but QUIT YA BITCHIN!!! I can't believe that everyone is really saying Sony had a piss-poor or meh show. Ask any game developer about how the industry as a whole works now, ANY one of them will let you know that unless your working on an established or heavily backed 1st party IP...the only way to get in is catering to casuals. Its not about blockbuster franchises as much as you think: cause while we 'hardcore' gamers are no doubt the reason the big 3 have lasted so long we all know for DAMN sure we will be the same arseholes not spending money on a title cause of a stupid reason while causual gamers dole out cash like for weaksauce titles.

In tht sense Sony rocked it, they def stood up for ppl that have been gaming since the good ol days, and cattered to the massses to get more paper for their company over all.

Pls pls PLZZZ stop comparing the MS Conf to the Sony one, there was no contest.
abc1233  +   1343d ago
I thought the conference overall was alright - Beyond was announced which looks pretty interesting, the last of us gameplay blew me away, GOW, new info on battle royale, new vita games (although not quite as much as I would have thought) so yeah overall it was good. Though tbh I was cringing when the wonderbook rubbish just wouldn't end, they placed way too much emphasis on it, but they have been trying to break into new markets since the Move and who knows, maybe it'll actually be a hit with the kids.

Have to say, very disappointed that the Last Guardian and vsXIII weren't shown. Once they actually show these games it might be too late, what with the next gen being around the corner and all.

I am pleased and disappointed at the same time. Beyond looked really great but when they start the show with something like that you expect more new ip announcements to come. That Book crap took to much time. I was hoping to see what Sucker Punch or Media Molecule or Guerrilla Games are working on.

God of War and Last of Us looked fantastic though. Especially Last of Us. When I saw that the guy playing the demo has no ammo left I thought now he's going to get killed but then Ellie comes and throws something in his face so that he can crush his head on that commode. I mean wtf? That didn't look like it was scripted.

This entire E3 has been bleh so far (not just SONY)...don't get me wrong, SONY had a good E3 but didn't show off anything really new...most likely because all the devs are working on PS4 games now.

So far we haven't seen HL3, GTA5, AGENT, and numerous other games. The nicest surprise was Watch Dogs which looks fun and interesting.
