General Opinion of Sony Press Conference

#1 Edited by grhud5194 (166 posts) -

Hey everyone, I was wondering because I personally thought it was pretty damn good, but I'm pretty unaware of what the general consensus is on Sony's press conference?

I thought it was a little better than par for the course.  They did what they should have done and they did it well.  The Move stuff was good for what it was.  Kevin Butler piece was pretty entertaining.  Twisted Metal reveal was probably my favorite part.  I wants me some online twisted metal.

i was mostly indifferent to it but it wasn't terrible.

they did a great job overall, but there was room for improvement and i couldve done without some parts. def better than MS, since they showed stuff WORTH showing in regards to motion controls.

They need to shorten it a bit, less PSP promos might have worked.

Hour 1 was insufferable. I don't give a fuck about your corporate image rebranding.

There were a few moments in that conference where I, by myself at home, verbally responded to what had just happened.  When Gabe Newell came onto the stage and started specifically addressing what he has said about the PS3, my jaw hit the floor.  And Kevin Butler was great, which surprised me that he pulled it off live.  But, I could have done without the Move developer interview videos and the PS2 chunk, but overall I would say pretty solid.

It was hardly a PS2 'chunk', when they first said PS2 my heart sank but it was probably less than 1 minute.

I didn't like it but I didn't like microsofts either.

Excuse my exaggeration, but you know what I mean.

Best of the 3, nothing can top the ubi trainwreck BATTLE TAG however.

Arguably better than the Microsoft conference in just about everyway. 
 
Oh. And Kevin Butler.

Troll? 
 
I can't flag, can someone flag that dude's post? 
  
I thought it was ok, a bit too much of a commercial paraded as a press conference, but hey, that's the direction that they are pushing it, at least there wasn't any just awful Riiiiiidge Raaaaacer moments. 
 
 
Although, Giant Enemy Crabs do rule all.

Didn't really like Marcus the PSP Kid. Way too annoying with none of the charm that Kevin Butler has. Also, I was disappointed that there wasn't time spent on DC Universe Online other than the 2 seconds it took to say it's coming soon. Other than that, not a bad show.

I thought the conference was good, but I'm confused. Will the PS3 support 3D games now? I know Sony's making 3D TVs now, so are they going to push for all PS3 games to be 3D?  And are the motion controlled games in 2D or 3D.  Sony presented so many games that I got lost in all the information.

They still need to work on tightening up the conference, I love Jack but he was up their for 2 1/2 hours. Next year hopefully they won't push MOVE so hard and can trim some time down.

I'm concerned about the overall functionality and overall fun of Move in games like SOCOM 4. I will have to wait to see it myself or reviews and/or insight from people I trust. Like, oh I don't know... Giant Bomb.
