Sony's 2011 E3 Press Conference: The Good, The Bad and The Ugly

XMNR: Sony had a lot on its plate coming into its 2011 E3 press conference. On top of new handheld hardware and a line-up of games it had to deal with the Playstation Network outage which thankfully was resolved just a week prior with the return of the Playstation Store.

How did Sony do? Like last year, we took a day to ruminate and think so let’s look at the Good, the Bad and the Ugly plus some missing stuff.

The Good: Exclusive content/Games. PS Vita Price tag.
The Bad: No official release date.
The Ugly: ATT partnership! yuck

Just wondering why the AT&T partnership is considered bad? (I'm just curious, cos i dont live in the U.S so i dont really know about the differences between verizon and AT&T)

Some customers have bad experiences with AT&T. Same complains when iPhone was first released. Doesn't matter to me since I live in Asia.

dktxx22781d ago

Its considered bad if you don't have at&t. At&t users like myself are fine with it. Verizon users aren't.

The Bad

No video out!

Sony did not mention how you can integrate the PSV with the PS3 and its games & use the PSV as wireless PS3 controller.

I wan't remote play version 2 where any game running on the PSV can be read/played by the PS3 at the same time. Therefore displaying the game on the big screen & having the option to make your PSV your second screen while playing!!!

Remember the Dreamcast VMU & Pocket Station?

The good:

Vita price is gold
Vita games look great
LBP looks to work great on Vita
Sly 4
Uncharted demo was awesome

The bad:

The Move demoes were pointless and offered nothing for core Move gaming
No announcement on battery life
No new IPs for PS3 worth noting (JRPGs are lacking, too many shooters)
No new PS+ features
No noteworthy new games for Vita just yet

The ugly:

Tretton's dress code

more good

lbp vita looks great

vita and ps3 multiplatforming (its essentially cutting both libraries in half ie dragon crown, vanillawares platforming jrpg shown at the end is multiplat. so why would I get it for both? someone is getting shafted, same with tekken, bioshock, more or less most of the third party stuff)

that con is my only issue with vita

"No new IPs for PS3 worth noting (JRPGs are lacking, too many shooters) "

Everything is lacking. Not just jrpgs. But you wont see that till tgs. dragon crown was one jrpg but thats multiplat

lol, what was wrong with his suit? Kaz said the tie was pretty slick, and I agree.

Klaykid1232781d ago

Oh god, don't get me started on that Move game with the Skeletons and dungeon thingy... The guy was calling "Jeremy" or whatever like he was a 5 year old. "Good job Jeremy, see if you can shoot it at the correct time to hit the target!"

The target was sitting still... Lol. It was painful to watch, along with Kobe playing 2k12.

At least RE3 is getting move support.

I hope the battery life for PS Vita could last 1.5 to 2 hours. My nightmare would be that when playing the PS Vita, we have to wear a backpack for the battery.

No rpgs and besides PSV I considered it a fail.. sorry

I was counting on seeing stuff that I didn't already know about

but imo Sony had the better of the 3

edit: and remember just my opinion but I was really expecting to see some info on FF13 Vs and FF14 which Sony announced last year.. Also no info on the Last Guardian and WKC2 and no trailer for FF13-2

How can I not be disapoint? I'm a huge rpg fan despite my name and avatar(I really like the helghans story :P being invaded by the ISA and all)

VampiricDragon2781d ago

nintendo I felt was better in terms of games and the new hardware. But sony was close.

Both great though

E3 is over now

so it doesnt matter

miyamoto2781d ago (Edited 2781d ago )

That's where TGS 2011 comes in my friend. So please wait.

Next to the PSP the PSV will be the next WRPG & JRPG King!

The only thing I am sad about is you can't play the 780p video resolution of these games with a video output cable on the big screen. What a waste.

Offtopic a bit:
A lot of people will disagree, but wow, Sony makes really good montages.
