CES 09: What Did Microsoft And Sony Bring To Vegas?

Games! Or, I should say, games. Mostly older games, but games nonetheless. CES isn't the place for four year-old tech like the PlayStation 3 and Xbox 360. But that doesn't mean they're totally absent.

Killzone 2, for example, is playable in Sony's big booth, as is Resistance: Retribution. Microsoft brought pre-release builds of Warhammer 40,000: Dawn of War II and Halo Wars. While much of what Sony has in its booth shows off fancier tech - like PSP and PS3 connectivity and a massive stereo system - Microsoft seems more content to just give Lips and Banjo Kazooie floor presence.

The full list of games brought to CES by the big boys - there are plenty of booths with Rock Band and Guitar Hero set ups scattered about - is after this. We're off to go play some of this stuff!

The story is too old to be commented.

I don't expect much moving and shaking coming from the consoles. Many years ago the CES was the big videogames show but with E3 it became an afterthought. I was impressed with SONY showing off 3d as I hope that becomes the future of gaming...

.. in short.. i think MS babbled on about how much they like to milk Halo..

And Sony just showed us what that KZ2 is the best FPS ever created..

in short...

Sony brought Killzone 2.

Microsoft brought Halo Wars with RROD console. (yup just read that article a minute ago)

If you look at Sony's key notes and other shows they brought a lot, not much video game stuff but looks of new products and innovations, Microsoft brought windows 7 and talked about a few games, I would say CES was pretty good this year for me.
