Sony’s Biggest E3 Announcements Ever

The general consensus among gaming media and fans alike is that E3 2011 could be Sony’s biggest showing in the history of the PlayStation brand.

Before E3 begins, and Sony takes the gaming world by storm, PSLS takes you on a trip down memory lane by giving you a recap of Sony’s biggest E3 showings of the past. (E3, PS Vita, PS2, PS3, PSP, Sony)

hopefully more will be added after this e3.

Hmmmm....I really hadn't considered that. I have an eye toy just collecting dust....it'd be really cool if Sony has some cool Move titles coming down the line. Maybe that's why the Sony event is scheduled to take five hours. Sony has a good amount of stuff to cover this year.
BulletToothtony  +   1640d ago
you're gonna be able to use you your Eye toy with the all new

Riiiiiiiiiidddggee Raaaaacer!!

omg if Kevin Butler said that i would totally pee in my pants.

If sony says anything about a price drop, that alone will win E3 and the console war.

But to me having Uncharted, Resistance and hopefully The Last Guardian, that will be it. That is all i will need this year.

I believe we will see a pricecut. There are so many great PS3 deals coming in from almost every major retailed like Target, Walmart and even Amazon. I won't be surprised if Sony cuts PS3 cost by $50-$100.

The whole network breach tragedy has left a lot of gamers angry and well, a little disappinted and maybe pushed potential buyers to the fence at least for a while. A pricecut will defenitely help and if they decide to lower the cost by $100 that'll be simply awesome! It'll be hard to find a PS3 on shelves if Sony cuts the cost down by that big a margin.

In terms of software, I think we will see Agent (if it is not dead already) and perhaps a couple more announcements? And as for the hardware, I realllyyy doubt all these PS4 announcement rumors. It will be an epic fail on Sony's part if they decide to overshadow the NGP by announcing PS4!

PS4 im telling you they're trying to 1 up nintendo....copying the wii remote....now nintendo has a new console that is gonna threaten sony cause from the sound of it nintendo is gonna be serious....they're also on a 2 front war with them cause of the NGP and 3Ds....so it'll be interesting can't wait to see what all of them have up there sleeves
Focker420  +   1640d ago
Wayyyyyyyyyy too early for the PS4... Just look at how many flagship titles Sony is releasing this year. They wouldn't just drop ship and head into next-gen like that. There is plenty of breathing room for the PS3 left and I can guarantee there will be no PS4 at this years E3. I'm betting they will announce it next year and have it set to release in 2013.
blumatt  +   1640d ago
Yeah, I can see the PS4 being announced next year maybe and then release in 2013. The PS3 has tons of good games coming out for it this year and next and the PS4 is not necessary just yet. But, I'd still love it if they announced it this year. haha Would be cool to see 1080p and 60fps in every game. lol
AAACE5  +   1640d ago
I don't think Ps4 will be announced this year, but it probably will next year!

Ps3 does have life left in it, but once new consoles hit, the old ones just feel... OLD! So Sony will have to have the Ps3 and Ps4 on the market at the same time.

Anyone who believes they will battle new consoles with old consoles for long is just nuts!
Nicaragua  +   1639d ago
Thats pretty much what the PS2 did against the xbox.
skyblue14213  +   1639d ago

My prediction for a ps4 announcement is 2014 at the earliest. Ibm just announced recently that they have just produced the next generation cell processor, and when sony was questioned about the ps4 sony commented that it will be way cheaper to produce the ps4 in terms of cost(adjusted for inflation) than it was to produce the ps3.

By the time 2014 rolls around the tech for the ps4 would be much cheaper than it would be now, releasing the ps4 any earlier than at least 2014 would kill off the playstation brand due to cost. Besides sony has stated many times that the ps3 has at least a 10-year development support cycle so the ps3 is not going anywhere anytime soon as sony's flagship console.

Imo 2014 would be the most logical and likely candidate for a ps4 announcement, that would give sony enough time to gradually phase out the ps3 as their flagship console and in turn bring in the ps4 as the flagship console. Don't worry though the ps3 will still be in production for at least a few years after 2016 if history tells us anything.

I am looking forward to it but the conference is half an hour shorter then the last 2 years and with NGP showing they have a lot to squeeze into an hour and a half.

Gamescom is in August and they announced a few good games there as well.

Really? So that 5 hour thing was just a rumor?

Anyway I wanna see HS2, Agent, Resistance on ngp, Resistance Retribution remaster, more on Sorcery, FFV13 stage demo (I know it's not likely), Kingdom Hearts 3 announcement (refer to last parenthesis), Sony's new FPS, and some new ps3 features.


Thx for clearing that up.

no s..t was a rumor. Who's going to sit for 5 hours?
Lucreto  +   1640d ago
We saw the break down.

The first hour and a half is the conference.

The rest is media only.


3:30-5pm: Pre-show reception with world renowned DJs and LAs best food trucks including Empanadarama,Yappy Dog, Cheeseball Wagon, Komodo and more.
5-6:30pm: Press Conference
6:30-8pm: Enjoy hands on time with almost all of the press conference content on over 120 PS3 and NGP kiosks. Arcade to include special appearances and musical talent.
8-9:30pm: Special performance

Its roughly a 2 hour conference and then afterwards a 3 hour event. That is where the 5 hours came from.
sinncross  +   1640d ago
the 5 hour thing was never a rumour, just a completely misunderstanding.
the original media release for the Sony event clearly said that the 5 hours include the conference and a special event. The latter is like a play session for people at the conference.

FFvii tech demo was my biggest sony shocker Since i believed it was going to arrive fully 3d in that form.
DiRtY  +   1640d ago
just to bring in some logic:

How can it be bigger than 1995 where Sony entered the business?
subtenko  +   1640d ago
"Sony shows off its "matrix-like technolgoy" on PS4 for the first time". Thats how it can be bigger.

Some more logic: we didnt have everything back then we have now adays.

if you die in the game,you die in real life.

That will the major selling point of the new ps4

LMAO! Could you imagine that. I'm modding the hell out of my sh!t then.

What if they introduced a thing called playstation store? Where you could purchase DLC and other goddies? That would be swell.
Siesser  +   1640d ago
I think few announcements had as much of an impact as "$599." Partly because of how much it affected Sony's sales/brand dominance, and partly because it revealed to us just how much we'd be willing to shell out for a new piece of tech (no 3DO fiasco here).

they bought microsoft to shut them down na wish it would happen but maybe cross game voice chat to shut the 360 fanboys up

Sony is huge but can never afford MS.

MrAwesome  +   1640d ago
To be their biggest annoucement ever I wouldn't expect a new game, one turned exclusive nor a new feature, it would have to be that they bought a big company or something like that, which would probably be leaked by now so that's a pretty bold statement.
Wikkid666  +   1640d ago
What if not a purchase... but strategic partnership.

Can anyone please give me the rundown on when E3 is and what time (EST) it starts? Thanks!

On topic: Honestly, anything can happen at E3. Sony can go all out announce a Kingdom hearts 3 or something, announce ps4 and show tech demo of a few games for release. (which I do not want them to announce). We would just have to wait and see.
ThePsychoGamer  +   1640d ago
Spike will start with MS confernce at 12:30PM to 2PM. G4 will then start there coverage with Sony's confernce at 3PM. G4 coverage should last till 10 PM. Tuesday G4 will start there coverage at 11AM, and will have Nintendo's confernce. That's about as much as I know.

Sharingan_no_Kakashi  +   1640d ago
The article is stating Sony's biggest PAST E3 announcements.
Dlacy13g  +   1640d ago
I was just commenting on the first line of the description: "The general consensus among gaming media and fans alike is that E3 2011 could be Sony’s biggest showing in the history of the PlayStation brand."

Even here at N4G where Sony is king I dont get the vibe the masses feel this could be their biggest showing ever.
Pyscho_Mantis  +   1640d ago
nintendo automatically wins even if it turns out to be the worst cuz they have a new console. A new console= automatic win.
Aloren  +   1639d ago
The article also starts with "The general consensus among gaming media and fans alike is that E3 2011 could be Sony’s biggest showing in the history of the PlayStation brand. " , so I can see why Dlacy13g asked about the PS4... cause really, that would be great if this E3 was sony's biggest, but I'd hardly say there's the general consensus about that.

EDIT: Damn, I didn't even see the replies... I'm getting old :D

Title is misleading. "Sony's Biggest E3 Announcements Ever" sounds like this article mentions them, however in the intro it says "could be Sony’s biggest showing". The article contains a synopsis from previous E3 showings and nothing about the current one. I think the writer could've chosen a better fitting title.

So the only thing you want from your PS3 till June 2012 is a better web browser? no new games? no changes to psn? no information about NGP? Or Move?

...just a browser :-/
lazertroy  +   1639d ago
Ofcourse not but I could say yes because alot of the big annonced PS3 exclusives have not even come out yet last guardian,twisteed metal,uncharted 3,scorcery,infamous 2,resistance 3,ico/shodow of the colosos etc.

People are afraid of Sony having the best E3. I really dont know why. I mean everyone knows that Sony will have a good E3 but so what? Microsoft and Nintendo will have good E3s as well. So stop attacking Sony if you are not interested in them.
Machioto  +   1640d ago
This is how Sony can have the biggiest e3,first Jack Trenton comes on stage and as he speak the lights go out then as they return you see Jack held hostage by a locus theron guard, as he struggles to fight him off kb walks on stage and shoots the Theron guard through the head then Jack warns kb about a locust grub, being caught off guad he stalls,then you hear a sound of a chainsaw rang out and the locust is cut in twain and its kaz with a lancer saying" gears3 is coming to ps3."
As the people start to relax a car comes crashing through and a guy gets out and takes out an Uzi screaming "gta 5 is coming exclusively to ps3", then helgast and locust rush The conference room then at that moment the roof blows off and it's an ISA cruiser to rescue everyone, they get every last person and pull out the hammer of dawn and blow up place and that's how the conference ends.

Sorry, Sev, but you are at the mercy of poor reading comprehension on N4G it seems.

I think there were a few good game announcements after the PS1 and PS2 that you didn't mention, but they weren't as big as they are now considering the rapid growth of the gaming populace in the last 10 years.

Grannyvukka  +   1640d ago
Sony should announce that they will no longer be allowing Activisions COD dlc milkage on PSN, until it is deemed to be good value for money.....as a few new maps, a map or 2 from the last game, & a zombie map are just not worth the $15us ($23au) that they charge every 2-3 months until the next game hits.

With Activision doing the whole MS c%#ksuck too, it would be a ballsy move for Sony to just say, "take your dlc & shove it, & if you release your games, fair enough, but if you decide not to, then see ya & don't let the door hit you on the way out......oh, & if you try charging a fee to play future iterations of COD online, then we will charge you to do so & make sure you make nothing from our system, then we will give EA extra funding, internal development help & whatever else they need to make the M.O.H. series kick the s$#t out of your over rated series, as well as pay for exclusive content for the BF series".
