It's obviously part of what was on the Playstation.Blog last weekend. Games like White Knight Chronicles, Uncharted 2, and other ("super secret") games were going to be previewed for press.

Can't wait to find out what they are.

Lol!!

Here you go, Fishd. Article doesn't really reveal much, although being under NDA one would expect that. Interesting that he briefly mentions L.A. Noire...

The Super Secret Seattle Sony Press Event convinced me to buy a PlayStation 3

"Earlier this week I attended a two day long super secret Sony press event over in Seattle. After I got back to Kitsap I headed right to the store and purchased an 80-gigglebyte PlayStation 3 and a copy of Little Big Planet. I can't say what I saw yet but it made me want to go buy a PS3.

It was hands down the most money I have ever spent on videogames at one time. After sales tax it worked out to $499. It is still cheaper than getting a gaming PC but not by much. I don't see there being much chance of a significant price drop at E3 besides there are games I want to play before then.

It is sort of a business decision since I need a PS3 system to review PS3 games for this site. I'll have to save the receipt and see if I can deduct it as a business expense on my 2009 taxes.

I was a little surprised to see that it did not come with a Component AV cable and I used the Component cable I was using with my PS2. It took over half an hour to update the firmware before I could use it. It was nice to be able to get on my Wifi right out of the box without having to buy a separate Wifi adapter like the Xbox. I was glad to see it detect my D-link home media server and all the content I had on it looked great. It was also a lot quieter than I had expected. I would have preferred a system with hardware backwards compatibly with my PS2 games but I have my PS2 hooked up right next to it. One fun thing is that my PSOne games play perfectly through my PS3 on my HDTV. My fickle HDTV used to glitch out on PSOne games leaving them totally unplayable. I heard you can use the PSOne games on the PS3 and play them via remote play on your PSP. I'll give it a shot.

I after logging in to my PlayStation Store account I had set up to use with my PSP I re downloaded Crash Bandicoot 3 and Tekken 2 that I previously purchased for the PSP. Rag Doll Kung-Fu, Nobi Nobi Boy and Wipeout HD looked like to much fun for me to pass up so I bought them. I'll probably get Valkyria Chronicles this weekend. I installed Little Big Planet and ran all the updated but I have not had a chance to play it yet. Glad to see 8bitjoystick.com looked OK on the PS3 web browser.

I can't wait to get Fat Princess, InFamous, MAG, L.A. Noire when they ship and I have my eyes on Uncharted, Disgaea 3, Killzone 2, and Ratchet & Clank Future.

I'll probably get cross platform games for the Xbox 360 but there is a bunch of PS3 only games that I want to play. I might want to get Brutal Legend and King of Fighter XII on PS3.

Update: Brutal Legend has a multiplayer mode so I am going to get it on 360 for Xbox Live. Also I remembered I have good fighting game controllers for Xbox 360 so I'll get KOF 12 on Xbox 360

I really hope that Sega brings over Ryu Ga Gotoku 3 as Yakuza 3 with subtitles. I have yet to buy any Blu-Ray movies and I am not crazy about having to buy movies over again.

I can't wait to hear what all the people that called me an Xbox loving Xbot in comments on previous articles have to say about it.

At the press event I told they Sony guy that I was going to buy my first PS3. He pointed at the Xbox jacket I was wearing at the time and said that I was thinking like an Xbox 360 owner in needing multiple system.. Once you buy a PS3 you will never need to buy a replacement. Oh Snap!"

http://www.n4g.com/ps3/News...

Or maybe he saw L.A Noire?!why did he even mention it?!Imean we have like zero info about that game,hmmm...Rollon E3!

BkaY3192d ago

the thing "i know something you dont... and i cant tell you..."

seriously WTF!

peace

shawnsl653192d ago

499 for an 80 gig + lbp? #_#

I would tell him to go buy it from dell for $316 or $341 (tax+ship included already), but he already bought it.

ChefDejon3192d ago (Edited 3192d ago )

i just got the yellow light of doom last sunday, and that was my second ps3 that i got back from sony.

FarEastOrient3191d ago

@Shawn

A $341 Dell computer will not even be able to play Medieval Total War, you'll be wasting your time and money thinking that buying a PC at that price will get you a decent gaming rig.

leyego3191d ago

wow learn how to read
u can buy a ps3 from dell for cheap
i got my bundle from them and it cost me 100 dollars less then if i got it from the a retail store

@chief
go back to ur xbot forum ur not welcome here

JackBauerIsHIGH3191d ago

LOL

Chef has never had an XBOX 360 in his entire life.

I love it when people on this site assume the stupidest stuff. He actually did get the YLOD on Sunday.

Jake11113191d ago

I dont think I believe this guy. I have both systems and I cant believe that any person who has that type of access to non public events would not realize the AWESOME games on the ps3 before someone showed him whats coming....???

Like come on! How can one go to any outlet and see MGSIV, MS2, RFOM2, and now KZ2 demos playing and not realize the games are miles above anything on the market????

This seems fishy.....

player9113191d ago

"I'll probably get cross platform games for the Xbox 360 but there is a bunch of PS3 only games that I want to play"

That article was funny. He says its so awesome but says he'll buy all multiplayer games on the 360 for LIVE.

He also says he spent so much time updating the thing that he didn't even get around to playing the game he bought.

The disagree fairy is out in force anyway.

Godmars2903192d ago

Now only if Sony could bottle that and force it down the throat of the ad division.

macalatus3192d ago

My fellow Sony gamers, this is truly a great moment as we now have a gamer who truly belongs to the real gaming enthusiasts which is us. I'm sure the author will appreciate the intelligence and maturity of PSN users who talk about quality games.

The people who will oppose this (including those who will hit the disagree button) are people who can't stand the idea that people can be smarter than them. We certainly hope that the 360 people, aka "misguided children of the video game industry", will also see the light and shed the idiocy imposed upon them by Microsoft. The author speaks the truth when he says that he won't be needing a "replacement" soon, a clear allusion to the PS3's reliability. Remember folks, MS has a very simple strategy in making people buy the 360s, which is shamelessly exploiting the low intelligence of people.

GiantEnemyCrab3192d ago (Edited 3192d ago )

As a PS3 owner who is also a proud 360 owner I find your comment offensive. You are basing intelligence on what plastic game toy they purchase? You are the kind of people they talk about when they say PS3 fanboys are the worst to ever grace gaming. You should be proud Mr. Intelligent.

I've had some of the best gaming ever on my Xbox 360 and I've owned systems back to the Atari 2600. So please excuse me when I say take your bullsh*t to the leper zone that away --->>

- Ghost of Sparta -3192d ago

ROFL @ macalatus. Here, have a bubble. :)

xabmol3192d ago (Edited 3192d ago )

I don't like the way MS does business, but GEC does have a valid point.

Do you remember that 1 question test you took when you first became a member here? Macalatus failed it. xD

baodeus3192d ago (Edited 3192d ago )

@malacatus

12 people who agree with u are either: you and your multiple accounts, or there are actually 12 idiots.

U are a disgrace to the gaming community, not only to your self but to your fellow Sony fans. U made gamers look bad and also to those who support Sony gaming console. U redefine the meaning of idiot.

And I thought that only MS brain wash people......

This stupid console war is really getting out of hand. It is like a religion now for some reason. Game consoles are only for playing games. I don't get where these fanboys get their pride from. Does owning one make oneself better? Go out and do something more productive that could help you, *looking at malacatus*, to grow a brain.

God, most epic fail preaching ever.

leyego3191d ago

i more i see it the more i laugh

for some reasons i keep relating hardcore fanboys to ppl who live with there parents, still go to highschool, no job (or have a crappy job), and have nothing better to do then argue about whos pen15 is bigger.

get a life, fanboys are not popular here and there not popular in real life either.

MicroSony4Life3191d ago

Sh!t dude, get out of your parents basement, stop stuffing your face with Burger King, Stop watching so much porn, go school , get a job, get girlfriend and while you are at it get a life.

macalatus3191d ago

My fellow Sony gamers, the people who responded to me above except Ghost of Sparta clearly are "misguided children". As you can see, they love to attack the mature people as having no life at all simply because Sony gamers tend to be smarter than them.

Take for example badeous and leyego...two people who claim to be "smarter" than a mature and intelligent Sony gamer. What is ironic, my dear Sony gamers, is how "ugly" was their use of the English language. Badeus spells "you" as "U", while Leyego failed to capitalize the first letters in his sentences. MicroSony4Life is another example of the low depravity of Xbox users. He has the avatar of a homeless looking person, and yet he accuses us of living in the basement, jobless, and doesn't go to school. Where did he get these ridiculous ideas? Simple, my friends, MicroSony4Life DOES the same thing in his own real life, and he can't bear the idea that others are better off than him. Hence, he believes that Sony gamers should be like him in that we are jobless, no school, no girlfriend, and no social life whatsoever.

So my friends, whenever you feel sad about your own life, or have doubts about being a Sony gamer, feel free to look at the examples above like GEC, Xambol, badeous, and MicroSony4Life and I confidently believe that you'll be happy that you aren't one of them!

leyego3191d ago

wow just wow...
first of all ur opinion is just that. stop forcing it onto others. just because ppl buy a lesser quaility machine doesn't mean they're stupid. theres tons of smart ppl (atleast smarter then u) who have 360s. y u ask? because there REAL gamers, unlike u.

How is this my ignorant fellow? Is the how you want everyone to type on the internet? To be able to use proper sentence structure, and top class spelling?

if u think ur better then us ur not. your the type of guy that pisses me off the most, u think everyone should agree and follow u because u claim to be one of the "better" ppl in the world when ur just trash. only low class trash compares there lives with others just to make themselves look better.

this is the internet my friend, typing it unique, its an art, it makes you you in the sea of voice.
join the mainstream and shutup.

gvie me a braek

xabmol3191d ago

Get a life, Dude. You clearly posted in the wrong section.

You basically said that anyone who owns a PS3 is smarter than anyone who owns a 360. That in it self is just ignorant.

So don't try to rag on me, Fanboy.
