Did Sony Just Top Their E3 Press Conference?

Yes, yes they did. Sony at Gamescom 2012 blew every expectation anyone had from them out of the water. (Assassin's Creed 3: Liberation, Call of Duty: Black Ops Declassified, Killzone Mercenary, PlayStation All-Stars Battle Royale, PS Vita, PS3, Puppeteer, Tearaway, Until Dawn, Wonderbook: Book of Spells)

The only thing that killed their E3 conference was Wonderbook kill momentum. They timed it better this time around
iamnsuperman  +   707d ago
E3 was also missing vita stuff but I agree. Too much time was spent on wonderbook. At E3 is should have been announced but then advertised aggressively outside these conferences because the people who watched these conferences are not really the market for wonderbook

thing is that EU is now sony's biggest gaming market. So sony is now putting more focus into EU oriented events.

wondercrap is STILL awesome for the kids if they keep making deals like they did with that chick that wrote harry potters it ca nbe good...now a deal with tolken and other famous ppl like that could make them profits.

but anw from the big three sony had again the best conferance..nintendo was the must boring to date
m$ well no surprise another gaylo,gears and more kinect hello kitty craps deja vu move along.
Unexpecta  +   707d ago
Yep, Sony won it again this time.

Wonderbook Walking with Dinosaurs will be freaking awesome!

A well balanced show. CoD just was disappointing but Killzone made up for it.

Well, Sony said that E3 was the Superbowl of gaming. I guess that Gamescon is the World Cup of gaming. XD
Whitefeather  +   707d ago
I agree this was way better than this year's E3.
acidbrn  +   707d ago
Not too hard considering how bad their E3 press conference was. Nice to see that they at least learned from their mistakes.
MysticStrummer  +   707d ago
You must have really despised E3 then, since Sony's presentation was the best of the big 3.
acidbrn  +   707d ago
Yeah I thought pretty low of the E3 press conferences. Which is why I find it so refreshing that Sony took what ever criticisms they received and improved on them.
ProjectDeputy  +   707d ago
what mistakes nap ?

sony had the best conferance from the 3
sony-ubisoft owned this E3
acidbrn  +   707d ago
I agree they did have the best out of the three, but come on you have to admit they could have done better.

So i'll state it again, yes Sony had the best E3 press conference, I don't disagree with that at all.

lots of new games and no downtime, it was much better
iamnsuperman  +   707d ago
Yes they did. They showed a lot of stuff for the vita which is a bonus. I personally do not like the idea of shelling out X amount of money for a portable gaming dedicated handheld but they did show off some stuff that makes me more inclined to buy it. There was a lot of nice new ips as well. Overall the conference was good(especially considering it was gamescom which a lot have questioned its relevance and usually there isn't much revealed at Gamescom)
MrBeatdown  +   707d ago
The E3 show saw more time spent on the big PS3 games and was longer. This one seemed to move a lot faster because they touched on a little bit of everything in less time.

So I'd say this was better, both in terms of presentation, and content. Moving things along seems to work better. More variety and less time to get bored when a segment drags.

It was a fantastic conference for sure

In the Vita department for sure!
SonyNGP  +   707d ago
Vita wise, definitely!
jonboi24  +   707d ago
Two words sealed the deal on this being better than E3: Cross-buy! *Drops the mic and walks of stage*
TrendyGamers  +   707d ago
That was definitely a great announcement.
smashcrashbash  +   707d ago
I agree. Gamescom was way more exciting then E3. I already love Tearaway and Rain even though I have only seen the trailers. Spike being in PASBR has made my day and Puppeteer and Until Dawn has me interested in seeing more and PS1 games for the VITA makes me happy plus a new trailer for Last of Us. And the cross buy concept will be good incentive for VITA sales. Only low point was the delay of Sly Cooper Thieves in Time. So yes this has made me happier then E3 did.

I wanted to see a lot more from Rain, it looks really interesting.
srcBFMVBMTH  +   707d ago
Why yes they did. I also can't wait for what they will show at Tokyo Game Show.

Killzone: Mercenary, Tearaway, Rain, Until Dawn, and Puppeteer all look awesome!

And I seriously need to renew my PS+.

RD Redemption for free and more free games soon to come.
Upgrade from 150mb to 1 FREAKING GB for cloud saving.
Upcoming beta for both Dust 514 and God of War Ascension.

Hell yea!
BringingTheThunder  +   707d ago
i doubt tokyo game show will be as exciting
jonboi24  +   707d ago
TGS rarely is. They mostly talk about numbers and japanese related games that may not get to leave Japan. Though if my memory serves me right this is the first year Vita is at TGS. Hopefully we can see some awesome JRPGs. One game I really want that would be perfect for the Vita, Dark Cloud 3. The vibrant colors would melt your eyes.
srcBFMVBMTH  +   707d ago
True, a part of me just really hopes that we get more news or perhaps even gameplay of The Last Guardian. lol. An announcement for Type 0, Valkyria Chronicles 3, and Gods Eater Burst 2 coming to the west and being compatible with the Vita would also be cool. Except those aren't up to Sony

Easily a better show for the vita, hopefully this is the stratergy going forward. Use e3 for ps3 and GC for Vita.
SandWitch  +   707d ago
Gamescom fixed E3 PS Vita lacking like a boss

Still feeling hype from the Killzone Mercenary awesomeness
Skate-AK  +   707d ago
I wonder if US will get RDR for free too.
sprinterboy  +   707d ago
Awesome conference, but did I miss something. No announcement of the super slim.
Protagonist  +   707d ago
I loved the attention PSVITA got at Gamescom, Go Sony!
Denethor_II  +   706d ago
Where's Microsoft? I've been gaming on PC for a few months, have I missed something? All I see is Sony.
mayberry  +   705d ago
The gaming world has moved on. ms's poor showings at previous e3's and now Gamescon has proven beyond a shadow of a doubt that ms is focusing on timed dlc and kinect games from now on, so gamers that are looking for more content have moved on.
