Welcome to the E3 2012 Sony Press Conference Discussion

Welcome my fellow Giant Bomb comrades! Unless you have been living under a rock trying to avoid the zombie apocalypse that is sweeping the east coast of the United States, you know that E3 2012 is here! Keeping with the tradition, each of the three platform companies along with EA and Ubisoft will be holding press conferences to discuss their company and what they will offer the video game industry presently and in the future. As you know, this will create apocalyptic chaos across the Internet and, more importantly, the Giant Bomb community and forums. In order to help control the madness, we will have an official "sticky" thread for each of the conferences. This thread is dedicated to the discussion of everyone's general feelings/opinions/thoughts of the Sony press conference.

Keep Discussion On-Topic!

This thread is dedicated solely for the general discussion of the Sony press conference. What does this mean for you? Well, let me tell you with my patent-pending bullet points!

  • Only discussion of the Sony press conference is allowed. Please keep discussion of the other press conferences in their respective stickied threads.
  • No off-topic discussion at any time. Want to talk about the NBA or Stanley Cup Finals? Do so in other threads.

Any posts and discussions found in this thread that do not directly relate to the generality of the Sony press conference will result in the guilty parties (i.e. users like you!) being sent a PM by one of the moderators (pray that yours won't be sent by MB)

Specific Announcements

As with every E3, there will be a lot of specific announcements of games/hardware/devices that you would like to discuss with your fellow comrades in the Giant Bomb community. We all certainly love your ethusiasm (it's what makes Giant Bomb special!), but this thread is only for the general, overal discussion of the Sony press conference. We ask you to direct all threads/posts/discussions of specific announcements in the specific forums where they belong. You can learn best how to do this by ready my fellow mod Marino's E3 2012 and You! thread.

Game Forums

As with specific announcements made at these press conferences, we would like for you to not get caught up in deep discussions of individual games in this thread. We direct you to take those discussions into their respective forums (again, you can read more about this in the aforementioned E3 2012 and You! thread). Again, please do not overload this thread with discussion of individual games. Breaking this rule will, again, result in the guilty parties being sent a PM by one of the moderators.

Some Sony press conference related forums you might want to use:

General Rules & Guidelines

Even during the week of full throttle shenanigans knows as E3, the normal rules and guidelines of the Giant Bomb community still apply. You can update yourself on the forum and wiki rules by visiting the Giant Bomb FAQ thread. In there, you can learn about all of the rules and proper instructions for the forums and Wiki. The sequence of punishments for breaking this rules still apply as well.

Live Streams

I want Last of Us gameplay and surprises like Watch_Dogs, otherwise it'll be a pretty boring like most of the conferences thus far.

Does anyone think it's even slightly possible that we get Sony next-gen news now that Microsoft didn't give any?

Sony exclusives have been killa (thank you for reminding me how awesome that phrase is Aisha, future wife) the last few years, and I hope that trend continue and they won't focus a lot on the Vita and Move.

Will my Ellen Page fetish be satisfied? I guess it's not a fetish though. She's just cute.

I'm interested in seeing more of the Last of Us.

#17 Posted by EvilTwin (3324 posts) -

Is there any chance we're getting a Star Wars 1313 debut at Sony's presser, or is that staying behind closed doors for now?

As am I. That's mainly why I stoked for Sony's show.

#20 Posted by RandomInternetUser (6789 posts) -

I'm pretty excited to see more of the Sony Allstars game or whatever it's called. It's been since Gamecube that I've played a Smash Brothers game.

#21 Posted by NegativeCero (3026 posts) -

I'm ready for Vita news. There seems to be a lot a buzz for The Last of Us, so it should be a good show.

Okay, I've lost the plot of this montage.

Sony always did love their montages.
