After learning that Sony's GamesCom conference will last a whopping 3hrs GamesRaid asked Aaron Greenberg if Microsoft's conference would last as long, he responded that the conference will not share the same length.
"3 hours WOW, I hope the seats are comfortable…and no we are not doing anything like that." Smooth Aaron Greenburg...smooth.
But Greenberg has improved a lot, and has become a much more likeable man
I hope their laptops have long battery lives. Or they have a lot of plug sockets in the hall. Good of Greeny to not say "3 hours? LOLOLOLOLOLOLOL" or something similar ;)
Well 3 hours is too long if you ask me. It's like sitting in a classroom listening to your professor go on with a lecture for that amount of time. Gets boring and tiring
I actually like long conferences. Nothing better than a lot of interesting graphs. The sad thing is, i'm not being sarcastic
What the hell are they going to be talking about?
3hrs worth of game announcements, price cuts and release dates, but that would be to much to ask for, it will probably be mainly boring, but with some great bits in between
he's a hell of a lot better than steve ballmer...that guy always pisses me off http://www.youtube.com/watc... that just annoys me...idk about anyone else. I know he's just getting them excited but c'mon a CEO???
you'd be jumping around like a giddy kid in a candy store?
If you spend 3 hours watching concept videos or listening/watching people on stage that has nothing to do with gaming rather than live stage demos of games with the developers then yes, 3h is too long
that sony had saved the GT5 release date for GamesCom or Leipzig! Europeans are the craziest about GT games.. also i wouldn't be surprised if GT5 sold less than Forza 3 in the US, while in the EU and Japan, Forza 3 would sell less..
They enter the stage, show Gran Turismo 5, announce a release date and save 2h57min for applause.
lol, I can imagine that happening. would make for a funny video if you think about it. bubbles for you!
He should have say. Sony got a lot of exclusive games. 3 hour is not enough for them to cover all their exclusives.
They always use the same pic of aaron greenburg for every article about him stating something.
But at least they are announcing a new game at ComicCom
he is a tad cheeky, but at least he is being honest and is not massively attacking Sony
I remember when he used to really lay in to Sony and do it at every possible instance
But he was becoming embarrassing. Not just to MS or humself but to the industry-and lets face it whether you like Aaron or not he wasn't alone in this kind of badmouthing just more prominent. I've winced at some of the things he's said to attack Sony by ignoring the world outside the US and I suppose someone told him that , actually, people from other places buy our consoles Aaron and they don't all come from cultures where your kind of rhetoric is seen as fair play. Oh, and that they pobably don't take well to you thinking their territoyu either doesn't exist or matter to a high ranking MS exec! Whatever, the one liners are much less annoying than the thought out NPD data BS that he used to spout as gospel. Lets hope that his change of character isn't isolated and all the other industry gobsh1tes wise up a bit too. He's still fantasatically ugly, mind, and I gope he's been working out since that damn photo that makes it look like he grew that demi-beard(not a real mans grizzly adams , is it?)to hide his second or third chin!
I can't imagine how Sony or anybody can take up 3 hours. In college classes the professors make us get up and do 15 minute presentations and people usually get done in 5 minutes. 3 hours is Lord of the Rings status right there. My only guess is that 3 hours would be taken up to demo hardware, and so I assume Sony will have a polished presentation of their Motion Wand technology. And probably a couple new game trailers to show and maybe some more news about Agent. I don't want start any arguments about whether their will be a PS3 slim presented here but it could be a possibility.
Hopefully Sony wont go on and on about the Psp-Go coz i really dont care about it i want Ps3 related stuff (new games)
but to be honest I would be happy with just expanded news of what was previously shown plus one or two new things
I doubt that they'll show that much, but it should still be fun. Off topic - Whats happened to N4G's approvers, this topic still hasn't been approved and the whole place is being filled with unnaprived posts
"My only guess is that 3 hours would be taken up to demo hardware, and so I assume Sony will have a polished presentation of their Motion Wand technology." Exactly what I'm thinking. Some of their E3 presentation seemed rushed. I think we'll also get more information on the PSP Go's bite sized mini games and non-gaming related apps.
Maybe some more info on PlayStation Cloud?
Nevermind. I'm tired and shouldn't be posting. Honestly, I just hope Sony spends 95% of that time talking about games and hardware rather than sales figures.
You're assuming it's all going to be about the PS3, PS2 or PSP and games. They could very easily spend an hour talking about their upcoming movies eg 2012, District 9 etc. All of which would interest people at conference.
remember e3 ? it was about 2 h long and it was shoooort .. they didn't even show rest of their titles... and gt5 was about 2 minutes trailer....
except it's called GamesCon, so why would they be talking about movies?
Its not about who has longer conferences its more about who's will be filled with fluff or info and content.
but having a longer conference makes it easier for there to be more info and content
MS better fill me with a lot of fluff after there`s. No Natal... booo
That was MS' conference if anything. Having 2 members of the Beatles on stage. A tech demo. Millions on lights and stage presentation. Of course all you see is grandeur from MS.
MS had more "fluff" at E3 than Sony did and even at the time I said that 2 hrs wasn't nearly enough for either to do things properly but, again, two 1 and a half hour shows with a break would be best. The time wating from Sony at E3 was the 15 mins of sales talk that we didn't want or need whereas MS wheeled out the disinterested celebs clueless to the fact that they were only there for the cash and nobody watching actually cared anyway. Who wants to see Yoko onstage with the surviving members of the band she killed off? Not even big Beatles fans would want that even IF they were likely ro be gamers-which they aren't. I realise that the TB Beatles stuff is a big deal but it isn't exclusive and one Beatle might have been a bit better than cluttering the stage with an awkward moment that they should have foreseen. Also both Sony and MS failed to seem like they even finished so why either asted rime is beyond me. Ten again if T10 just cut out half th times Grenawalt said the word "definitive" MS ight have had an extra ten mins anyway! Sony and SCEE must just have a lot to say I guess but I really expect a long motion contro tech demo again, reiterations of the PSPGo stuff and gamesand some Eyepet/Eyedentify showings as well. GT5 might be the big surprise element as the EU REALLY buys GT.
poor rushin guy (lol, love that :D ) bubbles!
Just because Microsoft had better presentation showing what they will offer doesn't make their conference full of "fluff". Microsoft showed plenty of AAA games with plenty of them coming out in 2009. Microsoft also showed a wonderful LIVE update and Natal, the company did not even have enough time to show all they had wanted. I don't get it I thought Sony was showing graphs and talking about charts to kill time.
It's not like the 360 has any games to show off. They may reveal some more DLC for a game that game out a year ago or maybe some new Netflix features cause that's all the xbots use anyways.
Sony has a bigger supply of games to show off because they keep delaying them. -_-;
That's true lol.
your console of choice is loosing to a system with no games and netflix.. sucks
And both consoles are loosing to the Wii. Go figure.
...ChatBots SH*TTING themselves again!!! ;-D 3 Hours for them to WORRY about if SONY do a price drop or bring out a cool New XMB update!!! ;-D
^^^^ Hahaha... Agree with Ken...... If they still could think then make Live Free!!!! Then maybe I will pick it up. Oh wait why buy 360...... Multiplat games i could play on PS3 with D-PAD controller!!!...
Of course Microsoft is not going to have as long of a conference. It is not like they have any new games to show off. Plus, their list of delayed games is growing by the month.
Go Aaron GO Aaron Go Aaron GOOOOO. http://s3.amazonaws.com/twi... lol
Every time you post that picture I think of potato.
from what i hear, 3 hours isnt uncommon for sony at these, its like 1 hour of actual conference and 2 hours of food and drinks hopefully somebody asked him his thoughts cause otherwise he needs to shut the **** up
and this was his response
Uncharted2, and.......killzone2 DLC and... thats it for the rest of the year.
Ratchet & Clank Future: A Crank In Time, Ninja Gaiden Sigma 2, M.A.G., Demon's Soul, Uncharted 2, Fat Princess, Gran Turismo 5, Agent... Now please man, don't try to fool yourself with lies. Here is the list for those that don't believe: http://ps3.ign.com/index/re...
GT5? Nope, 2010... MAG probably 2010, Agent will be 2010.
ROFL such sh!tty no namer franchises. Agent = 2012 This year its Uncharted Mag Ratchet and Some other PS turd no namer. buahahahhahahahaha PS3 is gonna get SMOKED this holiday season.
We already have Ninja Gaiden 2, and you also listed a PSN game that keeps getting delayed. Fail.
Dnt act like u know cause u really don't. Go look at Gamestop.com and look at the release date for GT5. It says ships December 1 st in U.S and November 27nd in Europe.
"Ratchet & Clank Future: A Crank In Time, Ninja Gaiden Sigma 2, M.A.G., Demon's Soul, Uncharted 2, Fat Princess, Gran Turismo 5, Agent..." 4 of those games have 2009 release dates. You listed 8.
hmm I wonder what AAA games has the 360 released so far in 09? I can't think of one.
@Obama : just checked, the answer is "zero'. There were 2 AAA PS3 exclusives though.
That is why the 360 owners have so much time to come in here and talk about ps3 games. It is not like they have any decent titles to play this year. At least they are going to have twitter.
i like how xbots say the web browser on the ps3 is useless and not needed but they drop their panties for twitter and netflix on xbox live, yet we can already do it
Which all come from the PS2 platform. And the PS3 has is producing it's own AAA titles. The 360 has Halo and that's it.
oh boy and pay $50 to use twiter. It's free on everything else.
At least things will get interesting with all the leaks and speculation of what Sony will show :)
I think we will see gran turismo this year. If I get uncharted and gran turismo. I'll piss myself.
"Kazunori laughed at the notion of a 2010 release date for Gran Turismo 5, and said it will be released sooner than expected." Source ~ http://www.gtplanet.net/kaz...
the Highlight will definitely be the motion controller, some games from Sony's London studio. Also, Heavy Rain was confirmed to be shown and will reveal a new character that you will play, and Insomniac also confirmed a new preview of ACIT. Its highly likely we hear things on the PSN front, since history shows us in the past the summer is when sony really kicks thing off with PSN. Other than that, the rest will be about the PSP (and GO). Current Rumors: GT5's first preview, Agent shown, PS3 Slim shown, Jaffe game announcement, PS Cloud, and MAG delay, and Saints Row PSP.
OK so MS isn't taking as much time, what's the big deal? Sony's doing their own thing and showcasing what's to come for those who identify with the PlayStation brand. Personally, I liked what they're doing with the dual wand thing and I'm interested to see where it will lead. If the Natal project from MS turns out well then so much the better for them. The point is that we gamers come out ahead no matter who we choose to follow. Sony might take some more time, but so what? If great things are coming for us gamers, then who are we to critcise?
Sony, don't put so much graphs in your presentation with numbers of the past that no one wants to see, like you did on E3! That way you can fill 4 hours but its bbbbooooorrrrrriiiinnggggggggg Its not quantity, its quality Sony. Do you never learn? EDIT @ MA below Dude, have you seen this years E3? Graphs, graphs. Have you seen last years E3?Graphs, but that time it was a bit fun with LBP. I've been at the Leipzig Games Convention 2 years ago, graphs graphs, boring stuff. Thats why they never learn. They keep doing the same stuff. Taking 3 hours for a press conference is too long for just showing the goods. It'll be graph filled again...
The presentation hasnt even happen yet and you are already saying "Its not quantity, its quality Sony. Do you never learn?" Can I have your time machine @Mart I thought this E3 was more game oriented than graphs, unfortunately it was mostly PSP, I think this conference will focus on the Go and motion control....and maybe the Slim but there will probably be graphs, they have to save stuff for TGS
