E3 2009 - Sony Press Conference Discussion

#1 Edited by Hamz (6899 posts) -

Winning banner by BrickRoad, congratulations!

Welcome to the Sony E3 2009 Press Conference Sticky!

Ladies & gentlemen E3 2009 is upon us and as always that means the 'big three' will be having their traditional conferences for our viewing pleasure. So to make things a little easier for everyone we've created a sticky to cover each conference. In this sticky we ask that the community come here to discuss their general opinions, thoughts and feelings on the Sony press conference.

Keep Discussion On-Topic!

  • This sticky is created solely to discuss the Sony press conference. So please keep discussion about the other two conferences contained to their respective stickied topics.
  • Try to keep discussion on-topic at all times. If you want to discuss what you had for breakfast with another user then do so via PM or wall comments. If you want to express your like / dislike / other opinions about the Sony press conference then do it in here.

Specific Announcements!

E3 always brings with it numerous new announcements, some mind blowing and others soul crushing, and we understand some people will only want to discuss one particular announcement made during the conferences. So if you want to discuss a specific announcement made during the Sony press conference then we urge you to create a topic about it within the relevant page in our Wiki Database. Below is a simple example detailing the steps to help you figure out how!

  1. In the top right hand corner of your screen you'll see the search bar. Type in the name of the game, platform, company etc the announcement is relevant too and click the page you're looking for in the drop down menu.
  2. Once you've loaded the relevant page. Look to your left and locate the 'Forum' tab in the list of tabs. This will take you to that page's specific board.
  3. Look to your right and click the red 'New Topic' button and you're ready to create a new topic!

Please refrain from dumping topics about a PS3 game in that particular platform's board. Try and create the topic in the game's specific board and if you cannot find a page, then how about creating one? That way you'll help expand the site's database, help inform the community and grab yourself a few extra points as well :D !

Game Forums

Rules & Guidelines

As usual the site rules apply, even during E3 shenanigans, so please if you are not familiar with them by now head on over to the

Defusing the Bomb

sticky and read the

Forum FAQ

guide and make sure you memorise those guidelines and rules laid out within it.

As well as forum specific rules and guidelines it would also be worth everyone's time to sit down and read through the

Wiki FAQ

guide and make yourself familiar with how the system works. As I'm sure a large number of you will likely want to begin editing new information into the Wiki Database as said information becomes available during E3.

No but seriously. I am really excited for this conference. They have a lot of potential with their line up. God of War 3 will be their biggest game, I'm hoping to see some Infamous DLC and some gameplay for Uncharted 2. I think this will be a good press conference.

#11 Posted by RedSox8933 (2501 posts) -

Sony doesn't have very many exclusives though. That might change this conference.

#12 Posted by Drebin_893 (3080 posts) -

Intro is awesome, purely because of the music.

#13 Posted by Hairydutchman (1041 posts) -

#24 Edited by MrKlorox (11142 posts) -

nobody's applauding the multiplatform games, except batman which has exclusive dlc. that is funny

#25 Posted by AltDimension (283 posts) -

Hah, I guessed they'd still be talking of the PS2. Still despite not really being a Sony fan I do expect good things from this conference

#26 Posted by RedSox8933 (2501 posts) -

Good way to start off the conference. PS2 is the shit man.

#27 Posted by Hairydutchman (1041 posts) -


#28 Posted by tekmojo (2362 posts) -

no graphs and pie charts yet, although lots of numbers

#29 Posted by RedSox8933 (2501 posts) -

Mispronounced Uruguay. I hate it when people do that.

#30 Posted by Vinchenzo (6464 posts) -


#31 Posted by BrockSampson (317 posts) -

Why the fuck are they spending time talking about the PS2. Only so they can say they have 3 successful gaming systems at once. At least they did not spend too much time on it.

#32 Posted by RedSox8933 (2501 posts) -


#33 Posted by MrKlorox (11142 posts) -

they always start off with numbers. the activision one was pretty much nothing but such.

#34 Posted by Spiritof (2280 posts) -

Tretton does not drop "GiantBomb's" name!


#35 Posted by Drebin_893 (3080 posts) -

I like Evan Wells. Nice man.

#36 Posted by Dethfish (3780 posts) -
@Vinchenzo: I know, what a jackass.
#37 Posted by Vinchenzo (6464 posts) -

Not sure about you guys but I'm already enjoying this conference. Tretton is just a good talker.

#38 Posted by TwoOneFive (9786 posts) -

wasting no time, UNCHARTED 2 sweett!

#39 Posted by RedSox8933 (2501 posts) -

I'm gonna be all over that beta.

#40 Posted by BrockSampson (317 posts) -
@Vinchenzo:  Why would he mention Giantbomb again?
#41 Posted by Demo (272 posts) -


#42 Posted by Hairydutchman (1041 posts) -

The audience is really annoying.

#43 Edited by MrKlorox (11142 posts) -

*climbing*, *cheers*

#44 Posted by Spiritof (2280 posts) -


I loved the first one.

#45 Posted by tekmojo (2362 posts) -

oh man uncharted 2!

#46 Posted by Dethfish (3780 posts) -

Is it just me or does this look like one of the best games shown at E3?

#47 Posted by RedSox8933 (2501 posts) -

Oh man, this is a sick demo.

#48 Posted by Warfare (1677 posts) -

Uncharted looks good.

I think this could be a console seller.
