These are the things Kotaku thought Sony would or should mention at their E3 2009 press conference.
Oh Kotaku... *facepalm*
LOL i thought that aswell
Good thing for me (& Gamers everywhere) they brought what I wanted to see which was a bunch of G-A-M-E-S............. GAMES! A pricedrop deosent affect me i have a PS3, besides thats a PS myth the system being expensive. After you buy every thing you need for any of the big 3's consoles you will be over 400$.
how are ppl still complaining about the price of the ps3, it cost that much because it is expensive to make its a blue ray player! and the built in wireless is a $100 value whatever i already got mine a few years ago.. these ppl must own that other system.
Built-in wireless is hardly a $100 value. Wireless hardware is super-cheap. Heck, the DS Lite has it and the price of that is only $129. More like a $10 value. I didn't see where this article was anti-PS3 at all. It just shows who likes to jump on the bandwagon here at N4G. Mostly the points are valid. I would have expected to see Metal Gear Solid: Rising in at least the footage reel that played, but no mention at all.
I believe he was comparing to the overpriced 360 accessory that provides wifi. In the end announcing a price drop before it happens is stupid.
Announcing price drop AND slim now would be stupid. In that case, they'd have to discount the current model even more, taking a huge loss on existing inventory. Pretty obvious why that didn't happen. But other then that, I think there was more stuff that did not fit into the press conference. Unless they'd made it 3-4 hours. We know about it anyway, and I'm pretty sure those were on the floor (like R&C, etc). I hope GT5 will make it out this year. This game seams to be massive.
Really wanted a date for Gran Turismo 5......!!!!! :(
I hope it's Christmas. That would make me a happy person.
Yeah honestly, after seeing the upgraded graphics.. the damage.. the new tracks, cars, ect - i really want it! If it doesn't come out this year, looks like i'll have to just settle for forza 3..
might be enough for me to buy a new one.
where are you?
I was certain Heavy Rain would be demoed on stage at E3. It had been rumored the game has slipped to a mid to late 2010 release but I still expected to see the game given some stage time. I expect more release dates. A release date for Uncharted 2 would have been nice but I still expect the game in the fall. Had hoped Grand Tourismo would have been demoed indicating the game was near completion. I was surprised Insomniac did not have a presence at the show showing Ratchet and Clank Future: Crack In Time. They've been a Sony mainstay. I was surprised at how much MAG underwhelmed. The interface seem cluttered and the demo was a poor showing. I was shocked at the price of the PSP Go. Relaunching new hardware is difficult but Sony seems to have no direction as the what the market can and can't bare. They recently redesigned the PSP making it smaller, lighter and with better battery life. The PSP Go will retail for more than the XBox 360 arcade and Nintendo Wii.
I mean I respect your opinion but sony has already delivered 3 exclusive AAA titles this year with Killzone 2, Infamous, and MLB The Show 09 which is conidered the best baseball game ever made. Add White Knight Chronicles, next Ratchet and Clank game, MAG, Ninja Gaiden Sigma 2, Valkyria Chronicles, Yakuza 3, Uncharted 2 which I really think has the best chance to be GOTY and u add in all the awesome multiplatform games like Prototype, CODMW2, Bioshock 2, and other big multiplatform games I forgot to mention. I think its a good thing alot of the PS3 exclusives slipped to 2010 is a good thing or i wouldnt be able to buy all these games. And besides your remark about the psp go being more expensive then the wii or 360 arcade is being picky because I can turn around and also be picky and say well the psp go might cost more but it has more space then the wii and arcade sku put together and thats embarrassing if u ask me especially when its a handheld vs consoles. See where im getting at? :)
I thought the point of the PSP go was a cheaper version... They save money by shrinking the screen a half an inch and take out the UMD drive to make it more affordable to people... I could be wrong but thats what I understood. i just checked and if the prices are true thats just stupid...
It seems Sony forgot to make it really crystal clear to the bots on this site that they have in fact 35 ps3 exclusives confirmed for this year!
that they just OWNED E3 and that the xbots should just stick it and jump out.
The commenters on Kotaku consist of whiny children. Bleh.
I know. They are just like the writer themselves. Always whining and b*tching. It's 1up 2.0.
Just hang around and see how whiny the comments on this page become.
If people dislike Kotaku, then why bother reading their news. I read the article and I don't understand why people are complaining, its not negative in any aspects. They are only commenting on the things that weren't mentioned under Sony's briefing. Hell, even I expected things mentioned on their list, however I thought their briefing was good enough.
must just be the N4G bandwagon
PS3 Slim: Late this year/early Next year Insomniac: Most recent Sony E3 press conferences have included some sort of appearance by Insomniac Games' developers to play a Ratchet or Resistance game on stage. Even though a Ratchet game is slated for release later this year, footage was relegated to a compilation reel and no special attention was given to Insomniac. Just like they didn't show Heavy Rain, they ran out of time. Heavy Rain: Sony hasn't been hiding Heavy Rain from the press. The game was included in its pre-E3 media event. But this hyped game, which has been built with the intent to attract a wider audience interested in more mature storytelling, only got the trailer reel treatment. See above^^^^ Starhawk: We thought some things were brewing for the Warhawk series, including a journey into outer space. Guess not for E3. It's not over yet. Metal Gear Solid Rising: Unless we were supposed to think that Metal Gear Solid Rising was an Xbox 360 exclusive, then why not mention or show clips or even a logo of Kojima Productions' newly-announced game? Tonight. Price Drop: No? Not yet? Soon Did Sony omit anything you were expecting? EU video store, eyepet/twisted metal. more cool new games. more actual release dates than Fall, Spring what ever.
Time was limited and short. IMO Sony found a very nice balance between its two major platforms. They wanted to relaunch the PSP (bad thing we were spoiled by the leaks) and it took its time. Worth of it, btw, the PSP lineup is out of this world. I could be playing the whole year just on my psp. However, PS3 got its fair share of love. Amazing footage was shown, new exclusive games announced, new tech demoed. I think they did all they could to pack as much as possible.
I was really hoping that Mass Effect 2 was coming the PS3...
i was just wanting cross game chat and the ps3 would be perfect. What is taking them so long with that?
A Microsoft Patent.... for the last time
How ridiculous someone can patent cross game invite/chat. Please Sony, Just call it cross application (as it does have a browser) invite/Chat, or just license a ps3 specific version of Skype.
Kotaku would find fault even if Sony announced that all Kotaku staff would be given a free gold bar at the E3 conference and that Jack Tretton would personally lick the sweat from their armpits. Seriously, E3 is an exhibition for the publishers and developers of hardware and software. From a gaming point of view it should be a celebration of new and exciting hardware and software that we'll get to play with over the next year but too many sites put a negative spin on things and pitch fans of one system against another.
Sony showed nothing worth giving them my applause. I turned off my television with anger. They didn't balance anything. They rushed and went in depth with a engineering prototype motion controller which was fun to watch but not anywhere near as shocking as MSFTs Natal presentation. They decided to leave the Ps3 in the back this E3 and not example any effort of them trying to push the Ps3. The Ps3 is in the same position it went into E3 a third place system that needs to show its potential before it can get the ball rolling. This E3 just showed that Ps3 may have the worst holiday season ever for there company and it hurts to see Sony treat the Ps3 as some back of the bus product. When in fact it is the best piece of technology under Sonys wing. I do not understand how people can accept this.... I learned nothing new and wasn't interested with the 2hour Sony Conference besides the showing of Uncharted2 and Assasins Creed2. If this is what you people want to call Sony "balancing" then you need to raise your standards.
