7 things Sony must do to win E3

PSN APOLOGY: KEEP IT SHORT
We've all been hurt by the massive PlayStation Network hacks. You remember, the ones that resulted in the personal details of millions being stolen. Or maybe you remember the SOE hacks where pretty much the same thing happened. Again. (PS Vita, PS3, PSP, Sony, Tag Invalid)

PSN APOLOGY: KEEP IT SHORT>>> why would they do otherwise?
UPGRADE THE PSN >>> I agree
SAVE PLAYSTATION MOVE>>> sorcery and that flashlight game
NGP: PRICE IT, DATE IT>>> uh yeah thats the plan
LET THE EXCLUSIVES FLOW >>> uh yeah thats the plan
GIVE US AGENT>>> uh yeah last guardian and FFv13
AVOID THE GIMMICKS>>> KB wasn't time filer, sony did a fan service by bringing him out
Sunhammer  +   1062d ago
I can't remember the last time Sony DIDN'T win E3. They always over-deliver and this year they'll do it again. PSN was down for 20 days and the no-lives cried over their only social connection to the real world. Hopeless.

Get ready for more Sony domination. The RROD > PSN (a free service) being down for 20 days.

How can you win something that isnt a competition you fool
jke82  +   1062d ago
exactly omni
since when did they determine a winner of a games expo... i mean its a giant PR event whos giveing points and whos reffing (and not fan boys lol)

i really want to see those ps move core titles (esp that horror flashlight first person view game)!!!! just got my move today! bow chika bow wow~ :D
DarkFantasy  +   1062d ago
E3 IS NOT A CONTEST!!! it's a expo -_- it's just a show for company's to show off what there doing and announce new products,no one is going to win any thing i don't remember there being an award ceremony after e3 stop making it out to be some thing else,some companies may have better products but still they don't win any thing.

I am really looking forward to E3 just as i do every year,it's one of my favorite events i can't wait to see what games are announced.
trounbyfire  +   1062d ago
shut the hell up, EVERY website has best of E3 so STFU. Im sick of you, every year we decide which was better so stop BSing
LOGICWINS  +   1062d ago
^^Theres a difference between being the best and winning something. Sony can have the best conference as far as fan service, but its not like they get a trophy towards the end of E3.
sikbeta  +   1062d ago
The only way to "win" E3 is with GAMES, also New HW and/or price-cuts for current HW
subtenko  +   1062d ago
This article is dumb. They already apologized multiple times about psn, STOP TALKING ABOUT IT, dang..

Playstation move doesnt need saving, its already a success and has more potential than M$ Kinect.

By naming and pricing and dating a console, how exactly does that make someone "WIN".. they could call it the "Mitchodrian portabl, $1000, 2012" is that winning?

They already have more exclusives than any other competitor

Agent should be shown I agree

Gimmicks...Gimmicks? what gimmicks? And Kevin Butler needs to come out cus he's been MIA!
DragonKnight  +   1062d ago
Ummm, didn't Sony already apologize for PSN SEVERAL times, including a video with Kaz Hirai? Why would they need to apologize again? People need to get over it and place the blame where it belongs, the hackers.

A PSN upgrade announcement won't help them in any way at E3.

"Save" Playstation Move? I see we've moved on from save the PS3 to save it's motion controller.

NGP Pricing and dating won't be a clincher either.

Duh to number 5.

It's not up to Sony when Agent is released.

And as trounbyfire said, KB isn't a gimmick. E3 is a showcase designed to grab attention. KB did just that and presented Sony with flair. It was universally accepted as a great move by Sony, so why would they not want something that can do that for them again?

This article is fail.
dboyc310  +   1062d ago
I just need them to upgrade psn network(new fully design XMB)..it came out in 06 and yet the INTERFERANCE hasn't changed one bit. But nonetheless I'm quite excited for what they're going to unveil >=D isnt there conference going to last longer this year? They're bound to show something interesting

Really there doesn't need to be a PSN apology, I'm sick of this anti-sony bias crap all over the games press - get over it; I'd like to see the day MS apologizes for RROD.

I dont understand, why does the biased media expects Sony to apologize? Did Sony let their own network getting hacked? Was it Sony's fault?
claterz  +   1062d ago
Well they better at least mention it. Otherwise it's as if they don't even care. And maybe they should reassure us that it won't happen again by giving details of how they have made PSN more secure.

Anyway, all I'm hoping for is a 15-20 minute single player demo from Uncharted 3, and that's pretty much guaranteed so I'm happy :) Anything else is a bonus.

I'm sure they'll mention it, but the last thing they want to do is draw more focus to it. They'll be trying flood the media with all the new things they have to offer, and it's looking like they'll have a lot to show in that 5hr conference.
claterz  +   1062d ago
Well, the Sony conference isn't 5 hours, it's only 1.5 hours. I'm not saying they should spend half the time talking about it, but just 2-3 minutes would be fine at the beginning. Then by the time the conference is finished people will forgotten about what they said about it anyway, so it's all good.
IRetrouk  +   1062d ago
no its been confirmed that sony are doing a five hour conference
claterz  +   1062d ago
You got a link? I'm not saying you're wrong but according to this link, the conference itself is only 1.5 hours. The rest is spent on other events.

Uh.......what?

Maybe in your twisted mind Sony didn't fail.......but to the rest of the business and technical world, they fudged up big time.

Quit with the fanboy appeal. If you're really as "die-hard" of a Sony fanboy as you seem, you would want them to apologize and reassure their customers that everything is better. Otherwise, why waste money on a company who doesn't care about the quality and experience for their consumers?
kikizoo  +   1062d ago
éwhy waste money on a company who doesn't care about quality and experience for their consumers"

Like who ? microsoft, or even nintendo (gamecube, wii library) ?

best hardware, library/exclusives, bluray, free online, best motion controler etc = quality for consumers.

20 days without hacked psn = the last thing dumb fan boyz have enjoyed, after loosing all the battle (exclusives, graphics, and even sales)
DragonKnight  +   1062d ago
Uhh, where's your proof that the business and technical world have that opinion.

If you look at the FACTS, Sony was truly a victim. Their security was fine, it's been proven. CC info was encrypted, it's been proven. Basically, Sony had happen to them what happens to hundreds of online services all the time. So no, Sony didn't fail. They were hacked.

I can't believe people show all this hatred towards Sony when the hackers are the one that caused this B.S. Oh but "if Sony didn't start none, wouldn't be none" right? The hackers are valiant crusaders fighting for our rights to enjoy a lack of PSN. Because that's what we want right? /s
AdvanceWarsSgt  +   1062d ago
And I can't believe how delusional you Sony fanboys are to even believe that Sony DID NOT fudge up.

You know damn well if this was Nintendo or Microsoft you guys would be saying the exact same thing I'm saying right now. But because "ITZ DA PRESHUS SON-EE" its OK to turn a blind eye. Jesus christ you make APPLE fanboys look decent.

And tell me, how is getting your service hacked AND notifying your consumers a week later that personal data has been leaked/stolen NOT constituted as failure? Are you ****ing kidding me?!?!
DragonKnight  +   1062d ago
AdvanceWarsSgt: "And I can't believe how delusional you Sony fanboys are to even believe that Sony DID NOT fudge up."

And how exactly did Sony "fudge up?" By not creating and impenetrable, hack proof fortress of an online service? Ok, if that's case, send your outrage to the Pentagon, every bank in existence, all online shopping stores, and the entirety of the internet. Because EVERYONE GETS HACKED!!!

"You know damn well if this was Nintendo or Microsoft you guys would be saying the exact same thing I'm saying right now. But because "ITZ DA PRESHUS SON-EE" its OK to turn a blind eye. Jesus christ you make APPLE fanboys look decent."

WRONG! If Nintendo or MS were hacked in this manner, I would continue to blame the DAMN HACKERS! It's their choice to pull this crap, and they are responsible for all the consequences and fallout. NO ONE can make a hackproof system. It is NOT possible. So get over this idea that Sony should have been impenetrable and that because they weren't they are to blame for some losers with too much time on their hands breaking in where they had no right to. Sony didn't frickin' hack themselves.

"And tell me, how is getting your service hacked AND notifying your consumers a week later that personal data has been leaked/stolen NOT constituted as failure? Are you ****ing kidding me?!?!"

Getting your service hacked is NOT a failure on Sony's part. They were victimized. Telling people anything when they had next to no information would have been STUPID. They didn't even know that personal information may have been compromised for a week. Read the facts and stop spewing media B.S. And for the record, this "personal data" you mention is all a matter of public record to begin with, as it has been CLEARLY ESTABLISHED that CC info WAS ENCRYPTED hence NOT stolen OR "leaked".

I swear to any deity that exists, this gen is filled with the most blind, irrationally hate-filled "gamers" I've ever seen. Only now can one say they have seen individuals blame the victim of a hack instead of the hacker itself. And with all the OFFICIAL information around, it's mind boggling that NONE OF YOU decide to actually READ the FACTS and instead go on media sensationalist B.S.
AdvanceWarsSgt  +   1062d ago
So, because CC info WASN'T compromised but more important details such as names, addresses, phone numbers, and e-mails were, that makes it OK? Are you being serious right now?

And how can you say Sony DOESN'T deserve any blame when nearly every report about Sony's network defense was that it was laughably bad AT BEST? You mean to tell me a multi-billion dollar corporation couldn't invest a couple million to insure that their network defenses are at the very least decent?

But sure, this is all just "Sony hatred" and media conspiracy to rid of Sony. At least Xbox fanboys aren't blinded by loyalty so much that they can actually admit Microsoft's shortcomings and failures.
DragonKnight  +   1062d ago
"So, because CC info WASN'T compromised but more important details such as names, addresses, phone numbers, and e-mails were, that makes it OK? Are you being serious right now?"

News flash, all those things you just mentioned are PUBLICLY AVAILABLE via MANY different methods. Your name, address, phone number, and email address are SOLD on a daily basis to hundreds of online companies. Point against you.

"And how can you say Sony DOESN'T deserve any blame when nearly every report about Sony's network defense was that it was laughably bad AT BEST? You mean to tell me a multi-billion dollar corporation couldn't invest a couple million to insure that their network defenses are at the very least decent?"

What reports? Do you have links to OFFICIAL reports? Or are you going on what every media outlet reported? Which is the word of hackers and a supposed "expert" who read reports from months back and admitted that he had no idea what Sony's CURRENT security measures were? Did you forget that a user of Beyond3D discovered that Sony's Apache software was patched with the most up to date software that was out? Oh yeah, I guess you did because it places the blame off Sony. Show actual proof that Sony had lax security, and not recycled media B.S. that holds no weight.

"But sure, this is all just "Sony hatred" and media conspiracy to rid of Sony. At least Xbox fanboys aren't blinded by loyalty so much that they can actually admit Microsoft's shortcomings and failures."

Xbox 360 failure rate at 34%

360 Fanboy: I don't care, I'll just get it repaired for free. No problem.

Yeah, they aren't blind at all.

MARKUS_MAX1MUS  +   1062d ago
I dont get it, Is there some kind of "prize" for winning E3?
mastiffchild  +   1062d ago
No, because you CANNOT in a press event/junket. It'sentirely subjective and totallpointless as a result.I can remember EVERY console maker beuinbg saisd to have won last year FFS how's that even possible when e're looking for a winner overall to so,mething where there's ZEROchancof quantifying the shows and measuring a true "winner" anyway.

It's also a massive expense to reveal games which get a nanosec in the limelight and would be much better served by their own smaller but longer to showcase features individual events-even if it's an online presentation for each game it could be timed for them and focussed totally on them and what they need to get across without the menace of live show foul ups and(GEC/BAM!?/WiiMusic)the incredibly wasteful(time and cash should be better spent making games, doing R&D and not dragging half the industry round the world toLA)nature of E3 and the way it;sjust not enough time to go into any depth on nearly enough of the things they all show.

Honestly, I don't see any point in E3 and all it means is a month before where leaks and guesses crowd the news and a month after where the same sites argue over who "won" something that can never be any kind of competition to begin with.Sod E3 and sod it as a "winnable"event. It's all BS and all that interests us are the reveals. Half of which we can guess, a quarter of which are not shocking and a quarter mildly a surprising but, again,shown in a shallow way that leaves us knowing precious little anyway.

cut the expense and months of lazy writing and scrap E3.Do it better without the crass over expenditure, please. I USED to think it had a real purpose but it's a mere chance for Tretton and Reggie and Shane(is he still there?) to flex their virtual pecs and it's Bollox. Say "no" to E3. Say "EFF OFF" to "winning" it too!
Kee  +   1062d ago
You can win at E3.

The gamers win every year. Loads of announcements and gameplay and all sorts. The excitement about these events for a gamer is similar to a kid at christmas.

They need to show some must have triple A Move Games, designed from ground up for PS Move Controller like Socery, because Microsoft will show a massive amount of some new realy cool Kinect Games.

And of course Gameplay Trailers and Live Gameplay on Stage: Uncharted 3, Last Guardian, Starhawk, Socery, God of War 4, Sly 4, Syphon Filter Next, quantic Dream Next Game, Gurillia Games Next Game,....

Cant wait E3 ! is comming !
Xof  +   1062d ago
1. E3 is not a contest. It's a trade show.

2. The only thing Sony "needs" to do for E3 is to have the PSN fully restored by the time it rolls around, or they'll look too obviously incompetent.

Thanks for that.

...Of all the posts I've made on N4G, I would have thought that one the least likely to generate hate-mail.

Guess I was wrong.

How fucking stupid do you have to be to think E3 is a contest? It's a press event. It generates publicity for everyone involved. The only people that "lose" E3 are the moron gamers who invest themselves emotionally in the public images of their favorite megacorporations.

It'd be nice if the whole interface looked a little bit fresher in a future update. It's obviously not going to be a priority at this point but it'd be nice.
About the X game chat, it may be something Sony have had up their sleeve all along in case something went tits up then they could bounce back with something like that.
It's not a feature that I'd necessarily use but it'd make a lot of the fans happy.
JellyJelly  +   1062d ago
NGP might be a showstopper. Sony's exclusives will be enough for them not to be "saved" but at the same time it's impossible to say what they need to do before we've seen what MS and Nintendo are showing.

KH3 exlusive for ps3

and it done
Grannyvukka  +   1062d ago
Just keep there exlusives coming and stop canning games like The Agency, The Getaway 3, 8 Days & such. Announce more games from inhouse studios instead of canning more.....Unfortunately thanks to turds like these hackers that brought down psn, more games will get canned due to these anuses costing Sony so much money.

Sony just need to make people confident there security is up to scratch, hammering out games, getting 3rd parties to offer Sony more exclusives (whether content of games).
TacoTaru  +   1062d ago
I hope they don't spend the entire time pushing 3D gaming again in some pitiful attempt to sell 3D TVs and telling us how their systems "only do everything". I remember hoping for something exciting and delicious last year and getting bombarded with "3D is the great and so are we", instead.
