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.

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

Sunhammer2674d 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.

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

DarkFantasy2674d 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.

trounbyfire2674d 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

LOGICWINS2674d 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.

sikbeta2674d ago

The only way to "win" E3 is with GAMES, also New HW and/or price-cuts for current HW

subtenko2674d 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!

DragonKnight2674d 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.

Thatguy-3102674d ago (Edited 2674d 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.

Spitfire_Riggz2674d ago (Edited 2674d ago )

I think that might be it right there

Istanbull2674d ago

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?

claterz2674d ago (Edited 2674d 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.

Hairy Chewie2674d ago

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.

claterz2674d 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.

IRetrouk2674d ago

no its been confirmed that sony are doing a five hour conference

claterz2674d ago (Edited 2674d 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.

This is the problem with relying on N4G "news articles" lol

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?

kikizoo2674d 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)

DragonKnight2674d 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

AdvanceWarsSgt2674d 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?!?!

DragonKnight2674d 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.

AdvanceWarsSgt2674d 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.

DragonKnight2674d 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.
