The North American PlayStation Network store has just been updated, with the expected demo of Heavenly Sword, a Metal Gear Solid 4 gameplay demonstration, and a few new trailers.
Talk about turning about turning up the heat, PSN FTW !!
Definitively next-gen kicking in. Sure there's still little things here and there, but so many very neat combos. Very smooth transistion from cinematic to in-game. Sound is awesome, you can hear noises and voices from all your speakers. Pre-order, pre-order, pre-order. Two long months to wait... And yes, the demo is extremely short. Way too short. I need more. But at least we can pratice those combos until we get them down solid.
An hour left at work dammit! Arrgr!
If you have a PSP you can remotely start downloading everything from any place in the world that has a live connection. Very cool.
That's what I did...too bad I have 3 more hours of work. :( The trailers are keeping me a little company...
One of the best list so far.
Awesome !!! but very Short !!!
New gripshift, heavenly sword, resident evil 5 trailer, mgs4 demonstration, WOW! THIS IS LIVING.
Long day at work .. I need some PS3 time!
one word 3 syllables "AMAZING"
It was however very nice to finally get to play it. The controls feel very familiar to anyone who has played GOW, and combat is very interesting with so many combo's. A must buy.
The mgs4 demo is amazing, I got it from Japan last night. Great sound on my Sony wireless headphones! Even though its a demonstration (with background audiance noise) As for heavenly sword, I'm kind of disappointed, it has huge tearing especially on the first scene, plus no complete camera control and its so short you barely get into it. Graphics are great don't get me wrong, but it is the same level we have seen a million times and there are allot of issues to be ironed out. Lets hope this is an old build of the game, because right now, I would not buy this game.I'm also not a fan of 'neutral' blocking. Call me old fashioned, but that's for the noobs if you ask me.
It's an old build, the one showed at GDC07 iirc... The tearing had been sorted in time for E3 and the graphics had some new bells and whistles as well... So I don't think we have to worry about that at all for the final game tbh
Heavenly sword looks beautiful even though theres a slight screen tearing but again this is from the build they showed way back on Heroes, hopefully its been fixed, and also the move sets in this game owns! I love it.
MGS4 in the flesh(gameplay) on my HDTV tonight.
The Sony E3 Press Conference Video was also added in the category E3 2007 box. It's a whopping 1.2 GB video.
Now I gotta go back to downloading again. Just got done with HS. Bubbles for the info, bud.
Serious :0 full conference HD????? and is the MGS4 demo subtitled or dubbed in english
"and is the MGS4 demo subtitled or dubbed in english" English subtitles.
It says SD = Standard Definition....so I'm guessing the HD version is coming later as that will probably be around 2-4 GB
@AznSniper Thanks, im downloading it now. Give me something to watch tomorrow lol.
I thought only Japan gets all the love from Sony. Good that they had the MGS4 demo on PSN. I can finally watch it in a bigger screen and not from my 17" laptop one. And also the HS demo was short but almost 1gb big. Imagine how big this game will be when it releases.
is pre-order material. Yes, it's that good. The demo was short, but I'm sold. What I like best, believe it or not, is the cinematic quality of the whole damn thing. It feels like you're controlling the lead actress in a movie. The motion of the characters' faces is amazingly realistic, better than any other game I've seen (including Half-Life 2). It's not just kill 5 men, move on, kill 10 more men, move on, repeat. The presentation and cinematic quality of the game really makes you care about what happens next to Nariko. September can not come soon enough.
Heavenly sword demo, mgs4 demonstration, RE5 trailer ,and the entire Sony Conference .. whoa
Guys stop downloading.. so i can finish my download faster hahahahaa
i finished earlier.so that should give you some speed.lol. mgs4 looks even better on TV.HS is just great.i seem to remember hearing about someone else doing the demo while the main devs finished the game. but it's great.DEFINITE purchase.all nariko needs is the mitsurugi soul calibur chest stab and pull out to really seal the deal.
man...the demo was short...oh well...I can go back and play another 10 times..
...with how short the demo was. Ha! Got you there didn't I? Seriously though, the demo was awesome. I spent more than 1 hour to download a 5-10 minute demo and it was worth it. I have played it about 3 times so that makes it more like a 30 minute demo for me. :-D
WOW you guys already got a AAA demo on your network, nice.
Heavenly Sword: short demo but indicates an above average game. Not the God of War with a chick I was expecting. MGS4: I say a let down. Above average graphics mixed with complicated controls. Now-gen but not ground breaking. RE5 Trailer: sweet. This game has promise for sure. Haze: old trailer. Not the best way to pump up this promising game.
