by IGN PlayStation Team: Your one-stop shop for all things Sony. Though Sony is keeping this year's GDC a little more low-key than what we saw last year, there's still plenty of stuff for PlayStation fans to drool over.
Sony knows what they're doing. They're saving the big announcements for E3 and TGS. GDC's never been anything special. E3 and TGS = Sony's territory.
Home and LBP so your assessment is somewhat flawed. And I suspect as was done with Resistance 1 this year will be more of a tech demo than an intro to the game itself, well it being a Game Developers Conference and all. But who knows maybe there will still be a surprise waiting for us. Wont get my hopes up to be disappointed, I would rather be pleasantly surprised. Edit: someone disagreed with no stated reason why, I really wish they would keep that crap on the open side.
expect more tomorrow.
But i think Sony only showed stuff last year cos everyone thought they had nothing. They showed Uncharted, Heavenly sword, LBP, and Home. I don't think they have much to prove this year. This is a developers conference so i reckon a lot of integration with home will be shown. Maybe R2. I'm hoping for more. Expect Sony to own at E3 though.
yup I don't think GDC has been a place to announce big stuff. It's a game "developer" conference anyway. LBP fitted perfectly for that part (in some ways at least). And who knew it was gonna be that big. Also info about Home was leaked out thanks to Kotaku. So I guess that's why Home was shown at such an early stage.
go shag queen kaz
sony's been really quiet so far EDIT: for those who disagreed with me, can you please tell me what, if any, announcemetns have been made by sony
wait, doesnt insomniac have a presentation soon?
where is resistance 2 ????
All the info will come on sony gamers day as for gdc they are focusing on developers not gamers which is why they hold a conference on developing items, location etc for home and its roadmap to the future. While new games and all gaming related info will be presented on Sony gamers day.
when is that exactly? does anyone know?
If Sony has been so quiet is because they have something big for tomorrow or friday
They dont have a keynote
I guess they were right Microsoft's stole the show. They confirmed that Gears of War 2 was coming. And everyone was shocked, I'm sure.
@Anything but Cute They don't have a key-note, but they will do presentations tomorrow. From 10.30 if I remember correctly.
I thought they have?.
Someone know anything about a futur Sony Gamer Day ?
of thing sony could show off at GDC: Wardevil Afrika Infamous 8 days(if it's still un development) more footage of HOME Resistance 2 footage Wonder why they would stay quiet.
seriously there are so many PS3 Exclusives in development....just show something. I think AfRIKA is gonna be something HUGE with Home. But Sony IS playing smart. E3 is where u really want to blow people away. Microsft is being FORCED to show Gears 2... and that all they had lmao.
We'll see alot of Sony stuff tomorrow from GDC.
So far it's been pretty lack luster. I hope they don't loose their humility and their current momentum. That "In Shirt XMB" thing really did not sit well with a lot of people. Its been a year now HOME needs to be released.
I hope so as Sony has been really quiet regarding their announcements.
'That "In Shirt XMB" thing really did not sit well with a lot of people.' To be fair i expect sony will annouce something on this very soon, i don't think they would have pulled off that prank and left on that note
I feel you. Still ... Sony haaaaaad to come out strong last year at GDC to help them build some sort of interest and momentum in last years drought. They don't have that need this year. Sales have increased to levels past the 360. BD's victory helps to solidfy a PS3 purchase and will only help more. Most of the games coming out this year are already known to us anyway. Some of them are shorwded in secrecy but, we still now there's a lot of kick ass stuff coming to regardless. I do agree that Home and ingame XMB are stuff that should have happened within the first year though. Hopefull we'll hear something about that. As far as games are concerened ... I'm not worried like I was last year asn I know that great things are to come shortly.
i been saying this on every forum i dont think sony has much planned for gdc 08 they are going to show exclusive stuff at a later date sonys not going to lose anything by not having a keynote
yeah, maybe they want to give everyone one of those "OMFG" moments. let's hope so. I have a feeling it will be a news worthy presentation.
TGS is where its all at...
agree with you rice
Dark Sniper is pregnant with the 360's baby.
am expecting them to reveal a few more details or announce something about PS3 features like in-game XMB
You gotta remember this is GDC....not E3 or a gamers day. Of course Sony isn't going to bring up their big news till then.
Why are ppl saying Sony is quiet I havent heard anything from MS besides Too Human. Every1 knew gears was coming out and they didnt show any gameplay/info about it. Also this is not E3 if games are shown off they are shown off for technical reasons to display engines and what not. This is not a game convention where every1 shows off their new titles and things. All i expected from this is info about Home/In-game xmb.
Sony might be saving big guns for bigger shows, but its very important too for them to keep their momentum going. Taking the foot off the gas now could be a mistake, they have to keep peoples attention now that they've got it. It doesn't have to be much, just throw us a few bones Sony. Releasing rumble and a LBP demo would shut us up till E3 easy.
calm down people sony goes tommorow!
Which hits soon after GDC, so the big annoucment will be there when they dont' have to compete with anyone for coverage. they can get a week of constant coverage instead of some new IPs getting drown by other things.
but Sony's Gamer's Day is coming soon anyway, so i expect them to have announcements there, building hype for E3. Insomniac also has a presentation tomorrow or Friday, i can't remember, and the Eat, Sleep, Play people have a panel also. in either case, i'm about as pumped as i can get for owning a PS3 with all the awesome exclusive games hitting throughout the year, i don't know if my heart could take anymore surprise announcments (well, just a few more, like what Team Ico has been cooking up).
But my wallet , 10 games last year with 7 blu ray movies...It looks like its headed that way again this year .
dont u bye many games now?
