Sony's E3 Presser To Be 5 Hours - 5 Hours of Numbers and Stuff

#1 Edited by KaosAngel (13765 posts) -

Sup fools, 
 
I was eating at Subway today with my amazingly healthy friends while we were surfing the internet on our tablets, we noticed an article saying that Sony's presser will be 5 hours long.  Our jaws dropped. 
 
Five hours is a long time.  It's from 5 p.m. to 10 p.m., and will take place BEFORE the Apple event taking place the same day. 
 
Seriously, what do they need for 5 hours?   
 
Link (Not the Zelda Link) 
 
Also, who the hell in their right mind will sit through that when Apple's biggest event of the year will take place a couple hours before, all the media outlets are hyping up Apple's event that day as the re-birth of technology pressers.

....5 hours? 
 
I can't see myself surviving this, but I'll sure as hell try!

Hope I don't fall asleep during it.  I guess AE will keep me awake during it.

Sup Son!
 
I feel bad for the media.  Five hours is going to be awful.

Hour 1 - Montage 
Hour 2 and 3 - PSN Suck Up 
Hour 4 - PS3 Games 
Hour 5 - NGP 
 
Success...and by success I mean failure as Apple, Google, Microsoft, and even Nintendo know the term pacing.

You forgot about Ridge Racer and Giant Crabs.

Ohhh, hyperbole. Or taking things at face value. Or naivety. Or all three. 
 
I wouldn't be surprised if it included hands-on time for the various journalists there (because, gasp, NGP doesn't demo well on a big screen, maybe?). 
 
Also, as an apology for the PSN outage Sony will give every attendee and viewer on the stream a performance by Cirque du Soleil, free of charge.

This is pretty misleading. It just means that they will have playable games available to attendees after the conference is over. Not the first time they've done this.

@Jeff: Oh shit, did not know.  The other sites are saying it's 5 hours straight.  My bad.

Who in their right mind would sit through this? Just read about it the next day and save 5 hours of your life.

I always find it funny when you drop Kaosangel down a couple of pegs.

Yeah that is the time of the whole event. The presentation will probably be few hours like always.

Is....is this some sort of sideways joke about hipsters because only assholes would do that, right? 
  
Calling us "fools" makes it seem even more unreal.

@Zabant: It's his thing. He's always at some diner or a restaurant when he gets a revelation or discovers something mind-blowing.
Seems Jeff has become a fan.

@Zabant: ...you know, never gave it much thought but sure, it's a stab at hipsters.

I don't know how but you managed to make me grimace in anger through words.

I am pretty sure not many people are looking forward to the Apple Press conference since it has been agreed upon by the media that no new iPhone will be there.  The biggest announcements will be iOS 5 and the new Macbook Airs.  Not earth shattering news.  Although news nonetheless because Sony will show new games off and the NGP has already been shown and played.
