Sony To Stream GDC Press Conference, Watch Here!

Posted by Jeff (3660 posts) -

This is set to jump off at the top of the hour, 4PM Pacific time. It'll be Sony's press conference for GDC, where we're expecting to hear a whole lot about the publisher's new motion controller, which I secretly hope isn't called "Arc," unless a big chunk of the conference is devoted to making that name make sense. 

Also, games! Expect to hear a few announcements and, well, maybe we'll even get a trailer or two out of it. Brad and Drew are on the scene, as well, as we understand there will be some playable games on-hand once the presentation is finished. So expect to hear from them later on.

@Manhattan_Project: Wow that was poor, my bad. I even remember reading that then forgetting it after a couple of minutes of that music had played. I blame sleep deprivation, I suppose I will just catch the archived version in the morning!

"I heard da graphicz on it was crazy" wrong type of conference, wrong year, ack!

I bet if you could see the working drawings for how the camera calculates where the wand is, 'Arc' would totally make sense.  I mean, it's no 'Spacecream Cone' obviously, but it's still a pretty good name I think.

#38 Posted by DrWhat (291 posts) -

wellll here we go.

#39 Posted by NoXious (1353 posts) -

Man - I think it's great that they are doing this but the Playstation Fanboyism is just retarded...
Now on to the good stuff, give me some good news for the PS3!

Lets play a drinking game. Anytime someone says "Playstation" or "Sony" take a shot.
If anybody mentions crabs, we take 5.

#43 Posted by sizu (391 posts) -

for a minute I thought Iwata had jumped ship before the camera zoomed into the dude talking on stage.

#45 Posted by Rockanomics (1150 posts) -
