Nintendo/Sony Conference Bomb Drop

Bullet Points from the Nintendo & Sony conferences today.

Nintendo Bullet Points



Sony Bullet Points


  • PSP Go! is Sony's new handheld. It will cost $249.99 and be wifi enabled with a 16 GB flash drive. You'll be able to direct download games, movies and TV shows onto the device. It is 40% lighter then the original PSP unit.
  • Gran Turismo PSP will be a launch title for the PSP Go!
  • Big releases for the PSP Go! include Resident Evil and Metal Gear: Peace Walker. Peace Walker is a true sequel in the Metal Gear franchise and will be set in the 1970s.
  • Sony is working on a motion control device that while still in the early stages, looked like it might be stiff competition for Natal.
  • God of War III was presented through a gameplay demo that looked pretty epic. Certainly the bloodiest game yet.
  • The Last Guardian is a new PS3 game from the maker's of Ico. It includes a Bird/Dog/Rat creature. Hard to explain :)
  • Final Fantasy XIV was announced and will feature some online components. It, unlike XIII, will be a Sony exclusive title.
  • Assassin's Creed 2 was shown with gameplay. Involved some high flying action in DaVinci's flying machine.
  • Rockstar North is working on an exclusive title for the PS3 named Agent. Not much is know.
  • You'll be able to download Final Fantasy VII on PSN.
  • ModNation Races is a PS3 kart game that allows you to build virtual tracks and share with friends. Think LittleBigPlanet for racing.
  • Sony will still continue to support current PSPs.
  • An Uncharted 2 trailer was shown. It included a pretty impressive fight with a helicopter.
  • MAG was demoed for the second E3 in a row. This time live with a 250 person game being played. It is due "This Fall"

Posted by Tebbit

a.k.a. Nintendo awesomeness, currently at 10%. Increased from 0% previously

Posted by Aeterna

COP: The Recruit isn't for the WII, but for the DS.



Posted by Aska

Isn't C.O.P. a DS game?

Posted by DannyJ

That lady trying to sell us the DS made me want to kill myself out of boredom.

Posted by MasterSplinter

I think C.O.P. is a DS game.

Good attempt to save face with Mario and Metroid.

I'm still convinced the vitality sensor wasn't completely serious.

Posted by Rio

damn, finally a new Golden Sun.  I have been waiting far too long for a new one.

Posted by Wicked_Wumpus

What!!! No news on the Nintendo On?!!! Wtf

Mario Galaxy 2? Metroid? c'mon man

Also I doubt Dave appreciates your name
Posted by Scooper

I don't know, a few interesting RPGs comming out this year, I always like a funny and quirkey Mario game like this new Bowser thing. They should of shown some Zelda though to get some excitement in there.

Posted by Winternet

Vitality

Posted by snide
@Aeterna: fixed, thank you.
Posted by ElectricHaggis

Super Mario Galaxy 2 stands out to me as the most exciting thing. Crystal Bearers also looks interesting.

Posted by CelticKrush

4 player super mario looks like a lot of fun.

Posted by Crash_Happy

I said it before, that vitality thing looks like a pulse oximeter. I guess it'll be used like one of those sports watches that supposedly monitors your pulse.

Posted by thefiretemple

Surprised about no new Zelda, but otherwise quite pleased.

Posted by PosableActionFigure

Mario Galaxy 2, AKA the map pack.

Posted by HatKing

Holy shit...I have no idea what Women's Murder Club is but it sounds both amazing and terrifying.

Posted by adidas1984x

sony and microsoft need to join forces and make nintendo join them and make the ultimate one and only console

Posted by Gigaman

Disappointed. Mario Galaxy 2? There has never been a Mario sequel.
No, not that type. You know what I mean.

God its hard to appreciate nintendo fans
Nintendo gave a great show 2day and i'm please
Posted by Darro

There's a new Final Fantasy game called Crystal Bearers coming out for the Wii.

I wouldn't say that its new since that game was announced for the Wii before it was ever released.  Galaxy 2 announcement was great though and the new Metroid Game looks interesting.

Posted by killdave

"Try again! And this time, try not to embarass yourselves!"
Posted by Oriental_Jams

There conference can quite easily be summed up by that vitality sensor.

Posted by UncleBuck

Ohhhh Nintendo.  I'm glad your making money hand over fist but your still not delivering.  I'll be honest.  Mario is getting stale.  I'm just not that excited for a new Mario game or two.  Galaxies was awesome but to keep stretching out your titles is boring me.  Galaxies 2 should have been out this year at least.  Ohhhh I hope Sony can do better.....

Posted by The_A_Drain

Wait what... Crystal Bearers? March of the Minis? Unless i'm fucking clairvoyant and didn't realise, this is all old stuff...

Posted by TerraDelu

Anyone else think that Nintendo is blowing their Mario wad? I am looking forward to Mario Galaxy 2, but maybe some pacing would do some good. Instead of loads of Mario games at once, maybe one Mario game and one other Nintendo IP.

Oh, and Wii Vitality Sensor?! Really? R-R-Really?!

Posted by Castro

Yeah, I kinda wish that they had done something a bit different with the new 3D Mario. New Super Mario Bros looks cool. Mario vs Donkey Kong will be good and what's up with the new Metroid? Crazy. Gotta go! Sony press conference is starting!

Posted by Serger989

I just really wanted a new Zelda game being announced, Golden Sun, Mario Galaxy 2 and Metroid: Other M look great, but really, if they busted out a new Zelda at the end that was refreshing, my eyes would bleed and I would enjoy every second of it.

Posted by Nzwei

Not impressed. 5 games in the Mario universe ? Common Nin, really ? Every original IP sucked big time. I wonder how long can they milk this Red-Blue cow. But than again their target ( 12 year olds ) does not mind. Sticking to my PSP for the future.

Posted by Linkyshinks

Great games were shown, but I think how they showed them was shockingly bad yet again.

Nintendo seem totally oblivious to what kind of people are watching E3.

Edited by Kohe321

No new Zelda? A new Galaxy is awesome, though. A bit let down by nintendo this year (last year wasn't great either).

Edited by Milkman

Just quickly skimmed through the Nintendo press conference and it was pretty alright. Super Mario Galaxy 2 definitely has me the most excited. Metroid: Other M (or whatever) looks pretty cool too. Though Nintendo didn't come anywhere near Microsoft and I doubt anyone will.

Definitely a huge improvement over last year.

Posted by Vaancor

Am I the only one whose starting to think poor Samus is going to have a massive boob job and bounce physics now that Team Ninja is working on Metroid?

Posted by Video_Game_King

Haven't they done Vitality before? You know, that Japanese Bio Sensor thing that plugged into the ear? Either way, seems kinda....well, innovation for innovation's sake.

Posted by MichaelBach

This was the most boring press conference yet, extremely meh... Microsoft is #1 so far!

Women's Murder club: a series by  James Paterson, the main character being a woman cop in the homicide department named linsey boxer.  THe club also consists of a reporter, a lawer, a woman who works at the morge.  THey work together to catch serial killer.  read them somtime they're great thrillers
Posted by dirtyfootprints

it wasnt a terrible showing. i wasnt expecting a mario galaxy 2, which should be great. i thought that metroid was done for now, but they seem to ruin my love for the original primes by giving this one a terrible name and probably ruining the continuity of the series just to make more money. but they seem to have some interesting ideas, like crystal bearers which should interest me if it is turn based.

Posted by HoldSteady828

I hate to say this, but even worse than last year. I dont know if I've outgrown what they offer, or if it is the offerings themselves that are bad, but Nintendo's games are, in general terms, clearly not for me anymore. 

Posted by ddensel

Not a bad press conference, they definitely showed off a lot more interesting stuff this year. But, where's Star Fox, F-Zero, Kirby, Pikmin and Pokemon?

Posted by Sparky_Buzzsaw

Some cool announcements.  Totally liking the idea of the new Mario games.

Posted by TekZero

Not enough Tween focus.

Posted by NormanOfTorn

No new Zelda?  That stinks... But two new quality Mario games is pretty cool.  New Metroid should be good.  It's a heck of a lot better than last years press conference... all we saw out of that was Wii Sports Resort.  I guess we'll just have to wait a little longer for Zelda Wii.

Posted by Halberdierv2

Golden Sun 3 FTW!

Posted by samsaturday

A new Golden Sun might be fun. While I liked the first Mario Galaxy, I can't say I'm excited about another one.
