Sony's Last Pre-Launch Presser

We've heard the rumblings for quite awhile now, but it wasn't official until today. Sony is holding one last press gathering before the launch of the Playstation 3.

The Gamer's Day event, an invitation to "preview the beginning of the next generation", will take place on Thursday, Oct. 19 in San Francisco and feature a round-table discussion, executive presentations and a half-day of hands-on gaming time.

should of held it in europe.

Antan6358d ago

Eseeing as us brits are not getting it till March, this would of been a waste of time, though i would hope they hold a similar event in Febuary, in europe.

Daewoodrow6358d ago

wait, they're still saying they represent the start of next gen? Without the 1080p card, how can they still back up these claims?

THE TRUTH6358d ago

Nice move Sony I think this is where EVERYTHING will be put out in regards to the PS3! If it's open to the public I will go there! (I live in Las Vegas) BRING IT ON!!!!!!!!

PS360WII6358d ago

even sony knows TGS wasn't enough to sell the ps3, so they need to have 'one more' show to tell people this console rocks

zypher6358d ago

however, after a disastrous E3 and an unrevealing TGS, they better have SOMETHING worthwhile to announce. maybe a real-time, gameplay-footage demo of Killzone 2 with graphics that equal E305, the coup of key franchises as exclusives (Res Evil, Mercenaries, Ninja Gaiden...something), plus online-service demonstrations...anything. cause the way things are going, Microsoft is in this for a bloody brawl. they've managed to lock up just about every new and worthwhile IP.

Will There Ever Be A New Rayman Game?

Ubisoft barely have a leg to stand on lately, so do they need to crack open the vaults and return platforming royalty to glory for some goodwill?

We need Rayman 4, they could make a great platformer game if they wanted. With the open hub levels and the like.

Better than relying on Rabbids and Assassins Creed all the time

Profchaos21h ago

Yeah agree id love a Rayman 2 style 3d platform game over another 2d platformer I know people loved legends but it never gelled with me same as Rayman 1 back in the day on PS it just felt like a average platformer with sonic and Mario offering something better on what was then last gen hardware

Terry_B1d 11h ago

Yes..but I am sure it won't be the Rayman game fans want. Not from the company that is Ubisoft today.

mastershredder1d 10h ago (Edited 1d 10h ago )

Ancel is retired from games. His hoodlum/rabbid team are doing their own thing. It would not be the same if Ubisoft did.

Profchaos21h ago

Probably far more profitable to make low effort Rabbids games aimed at kids over a next Rayman

Chocoburger1d 4h ago

Experience points, skill trees to fill up, level gating, endless menial tasks and side quests, constantly scrounging for resources. Always having to upgrade your gear. A.KA. "The Ubisoft effect".

No thanks, don't ruin Rayman's legacy.

Sure there will be it'll launch right alongside the next splinter cell

PS3 Update 4.91 Released and Does What You Expect This Feb. 27

You read that headline right! It's not a typo, as Sony has released PS3 update 4.91 this Feb. 27 2024, and it does what players might expect.

darthv722d ago

It says it is for an updated Blueray key but we all know its to also try and patch the exploits that were found in 4.90. And soon this one will be exploited and released as CFW 4.91

One day the PS3 is gonna be the most STABLE OS every created.
I think I might as well look into some Homebrew at this point. There's probably a cool scene on it.

aaronaton1d 18h ago

I play my PS3 on a CRT @576i. There is a clear bug that Trophies aren't popping up once earned, you hear the noise, but they do not appear at the top right.

CobraKai1d 1h ago

You hold on to that CRT for as long as you can.

anast1d 6h ago

They are still supporting the PS3 that's one reason why people prefer Sony gaming.

FinalFantasyFanatic21h ago

I only finished Xenogears on it in January, nice to see it's still getting the ocassional update.
