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. -
