E3 2010 - Sony Press Conference Discussion

#1 Edited by CitizenKane (10504 posts) -

Welcome to the E3 2010 Sony Press Conference Discussion!

Welcome my fellow Giant Bomb comrades! Unless you have be living under a rock that doesn't have internet access, you know that this week is E3 2010. As with tradition, this means that the "Big Three" will be giving press conferences to discuss their past, present, and future in the video game industry. To make the community less chaotic and easier to navigate, we have created a "sticky" thread for each conference. in this thread, we ask that you come here to discuss your general feelings/opinions/thoughts on the Sony press conference.

Keep Discussion On-Topic!

This thread is dedicated solely for general discussion of the Sony press conference. What this means is:

  • Only discussion of the Sony press conference is allowed. Please keep the discussions of the Nintendo and Microsoft press conference in their respective stickied threads.
  • No off-topic discussion at any time. Want to talk about the World Cup or interleague play in MLB? Do so in other threads.

Any posts/discussions found in this thread that do not relate to the Sony press conference will result in the guilty user(s) being sent a PM by one of the moderators.

Specific Announcements

As with every E3 press conference, there will be specific announcements that you most certainly want to talk about. While we love your enthusiasm, we want this thread to only be about the overall general discussion of the Sony press conference. Therefore, we ask you to discuss the specific announcements in the forums of their respective Wiki pages. You can learn how best to do this in our

E3 2010 and You!

thread.

Game Forums

Like with specific announcements, we would like you to not get into discussions of individual games in this thread and instead post your topics/discussions in their respective forums(again, you can learn how to this in the aforementioned

E3 and You!

thread). Also, please refrain from loading the

PS3

and

PSP

forums with discussions of individual games. Breaking either rule will result in the user(s) being sent a PM by one of the moderators.

General Rules & Guidelines

Even during E3 tomfoolery, the general rules and guidelines of the Giant Bomb community still apply. You can refresh your memory about them in the

Site Rules & FAQs

thread. There you can learn about all of the rules of not only the Forums, but also the Wiki, which I am sure many of you will be heavily involved with this week. The sequence of punishments for infractions against these rules still apply as well.

KILLZONE 3! 

#4 Posted by Milkman (16527 posts) -

Infamous 2, please.

#5 Posted by MattyFTM (14342 posts) -

Anyone expecting Sony to announce a competitor to the 3DS? They have to be cooking something up on the handheld front, but is it too soon for them to be showing it?

A hard act to follow, but as long as Sony doesn't have a bunch of awkward acting it should be pretty good since they have a nice list of games coming. I hope they showcase them as in-depth as Nintendo did. 
 
@MattyFTM: I think they may quietly exit the handheld business after seeing what the 3DS can do...

Sony just has to be better then microsoft. That shouldnt be too hard. Oh god nintendos line-up was so amazing.
#8 Posted by mosespippy (4034 posts) -

There is going to be so much 3D at this thing. GT5, KZ3, probably Motorstorm Apocalypse and Infamous 2 as well.

#9 Posted by Marz (5642 posts) -

hoping for more Last Guardian gameplay

#10 Edited by FateOfNever (1814 posts) -

I'll be looking forward to seeing if they do announce anything relating to the PSP or the PSP2; especially with those big PSP game sales that they started recently.  I definitely think they've got to do something big though - between Nintendo's press conference with its abundance of surprises and Microsoft revealing both the slim and showing off Kinect in action as much as they did, Sony will have to do something more than just show off the Move even more than they already have.

#11 Posted by Steve_C (1750 posts) -

Hard to beat Nintendo. They surpassed all expectations.
 
I'll expect a completely solid conference at the very least. Hopefully there'll be a few surprises.

#12 Posted by Cube (4366 posts) -

Kevin Butler. Do it. 
 
Other than that, Sony should announce PSP's successor. Sony revealed huge games before E3, they need something up their sleeve.

They'll be better than microsoft, by far; I dunno if they'll be able to beat Nintendo though.

The mods picked.

Will Gametrailers have a live stream of this or does Sony have their own stream as well?

I really hope that is the case. Giving some good news before E3, then actually having surprises at the conference. What's the point of E3 if not for new developments and surprises?
#19 Posted by Brunchies (2484 posts) -

I would like some Little Big Planet 2 gameplay and a PSP2 might be announced with better piracy protection since the original PSP was easily cracked. I'm mainly looking forward to gameplay footage of Sony's major games. 

#20 Posted by damswedon (3175 posts) -

I just want another Last Guardian Trailer. Sony Doesn't need to show any game-play or give it a date just a Trailer. Hell say it is move compatible and you have a sale.

#21 Posted by Crono11 (1640 posts) -

I'm hoping to see a PSP2 ( I really like my PSP even if I don't play it much anymore) and a sequel to the Legend of Dragoon (which won't happen). I'm not saying those two things are enough to "beat" Nintendo, but it would make me happy.

#22 Posted by TwoOneFive (9459 posts) -

I have a feeling Sony is going to impress us the most once again folks.  
 
MS sucked big time this year, Nintendo was surprisingly very good!!! and Sony is just going to show off the most impressive stuff, and the most stuff too probably. 

#23 Posted by MrGetBonus (782 posts) -

Don't let me down Sony! I'm expecting good things.

#24 Posted by Blueman (753 posts) -

Nintendo were amazing this year, but Microsoft were terrible. If Sony announce a few good games and bring on Kevin Butler, they should have a good one.

#25 Posted by ProfessorEss (7281 posts) -

I'm picturing a lot fo time wasted on 3D.

...and perhaps a PSPhone?
To do battle with, and fail to the iPhone.

#26 Posted by SirBlimE (167 posts) -

Bring the Butler!

you're making me cry because that sounds very plausible
#28 Posted by Steve_C (1750 posts) -

From Keighley's twitter:
 
"Btw I am hearing that Sony has some killer surprises for their briefing coming up. Live stream at noon."
 
Absolutely stoked!

#29 Posted by TurboMan (7401 posts) -

I just hope Sony delivers with some Kevin Butler action... the surprises other than that would be icing on the cake.

#30 Posted by Cube (4366 posts) -

Sony could very well fail though. Sometimes they're kinda dumb, huh? They had an awesome show last year. I hope they come out with a simple, effective handheld focused only on games, and not on media. That killed the PSP. Of course, media is their entire mission statement.  
 
Here's hoping for some new IP's and displays of already announced new IP's (Agent and Last Guardian plz).

It would be like the N-Gage all over again!  Though, honestly, seeing all the stuff they had designed the PSP to do, somehow them wanting to add a phone to the mix doesn't sound that crazy. 
#32 Posted by Titl (539 posts) -

I really want to see some infamous 2, and some new IPs, that would satisfy me.

I agree. I think it's a shame that they have that whole 3D thing to talk about as well as an hour to waste on discussing the Move.
#34 Posted by PS3RG (424 posts) -

I am very very excited for Sony's pc. All they have to do is show new footage of The Last Guardian and announce a release date and I'll be happy.

#35 Posted by Tactical_Kill (1695 posts) -

Sony better bring their A game after Nintendo's press conference.

#36 Posted by Cube (4366 posts) -

Just a note: People said MS won E3 last year before Sony took the stage too. Sony can win very easily.

#37 Posted by TurboMan (7401 posts) -

Anyone else feeling that Last Guardian will steal the show? 
 
I hope Sony announces something else besides all sequals, I hope there's atleast one more original IP besides Last Guardian.

#38 Posted by PS3RG (424 posts) -

what if Sony announces Portal 2 and Half Life is coming to the PS3.........

Agent should make a showing IMO. Sony's been pretty good with the new IP's, I don't think we're in trouble there.

@CitizenKane: Infamous 2 should be unreal

That would be pretty decently big... I wouldn't say that they were stealing an exclusive from Microsoft though.... it would be more like Valve got off their ass and started making PS3 games.
#42 Posted by bolognarock (169 posts) -

Most excited about Little Big Planet 2. Also, Last Guardian seems pretty cool, another trailer would be nice.

Exactly.

Hope Move is shown to be more than just wiihdplus :/  Not a big fan of kinect either but at least it's slightly different.
 
Biggest change that would make me happy would be online changes and a new controller.

#45 Posted by Pie (7055 posts) -

Am I the only one who wants to see some Move action? 
That swordplay from last year looked pretty sweet.... 
Also is it way too early for a uncharted 3 teaser?

#46 Posted by Rhaknar (5939 posts) -

he said the same yesterday for MS and nothing happened, but still:

Btw I am hearing that Sony has some killer surprises for their briefing coming up. Live stream at noon. 

#47 Posted by Cube (4366 posts) -
@bhhawks78: This is a good point. They'll most likely talk about PSN+ for a bit.
#48 Posted by Rhaknar (5939 posts) -

If they only showed Infamous 2 gameplay, it would be enough for me

#49 Posted by m1k3 (1325 posts) -

I was waiting for these press conference to surprise me. Microsoft didn't do it since we knew about what they talked about already. Nintendo announced some pretty good first party games. Sony... lets wait and see... Nothing big from their press conference has been leaked.

#50 Posted by HypoXenophobia (1045 posts) -

My predictions. Kevin Butler not host, but be in a ridiculous amount of videos. 
The PSP2 will be announced and be backwards compatible with dual analogue at 249.00 
The PS3 will receive crapload of bundles to make it appear cheaper. 
PS2 Backwards Compatibility/ Cross Game Chat/ PS3 OS Redesign/ and PS3+ will be addressed
Kojima will announce something.
Epic Games will announce something
I Am Alive will be shown off. 

The last 3 are reaching, but I figured the first four were tame.
