Here's a handy bullet-point list of all the trailers and announcements coming out of the Sony camp. We'll update this page regularly with the best stuff they release this week. 

Top 10 Trailers/Demos


Sony Bullet Points


  • PSP Go! is Sony's new handheld. It will cost $249.99 and be wifi enabled with a 16 GB flash drive. You'll be able to direct download games, movies and TV shows onto the device. It is 40% lighter then the original PSP unit.
  • Gran Turismo PSP will be a launch title for the PSP Go!
  • Big releases for the PSP Go! include Resident Evil and Metal Gear: Peace Walker. Peace Walker is a true sequel in the Metal Gear franchise and will be set in the 1970s.
  • Sony is working on a motion control device that while still in the early stages, looked like it might be stiff competition for Natal.
  • God of War III was presented through a gameplay demo that looked pretty epic. Certainly the bloodiest game yet.
  • The Last Guardian is a new PS3 game from the maker's of Ico. It includes a Bird/Dog/Rat creature. Hard to explain :)
  • Final Fantasy XIV was announced and will feature some online components. It, unlike XIII, will be a Sony exclusive title.
  • Assassin's Creed 2 was shown with gameplay. Involved some high flying action in DaVinci's flying machine.
  • Rockstar North is working on an exclusive title for the PS3 named Agent. Not much is know.
  • You'll be able to download Final Fantasy VII on PSN.
  • ModNation Races is a PS3 kart game that allows you to build virtual tracks and share with friends. Think LittleBigPlanet for racing.
  • Sony will still continue to support current PSPs.
  • An Uncharted 2 trailer was shown. It included a pretty impressive fight with a helicopter.
  • MAG was demoed for the second E3 in a row. This time live with a 250 person game being played. It is due "This Fall"

MAG looks amazing.... that's a sweet demo they did.

#7 Edited by TOYBOXX (310 posts) -

Sony had an impressive showing of games. And because of that they stole the show, in my opinion. Let's just say that my 360 will be collecting dust for the most part of 2009.

Doesnt it!!! Im kinda tempted to see whether this works back towards pc platforms though  -i mean the pc online gaming infrastructure is much more suited to this kind of thing - maybe after seeing the risk/success of MAG maybe we'll see similar scale on the pc?
#9 Posted by coonce (1429 posts) -
@OmegaPirate: completely agreed. i think its incredibly how many people they have in the match and how great the gameplay looks.

Indeed :D 

I mean admittedly, there are a lot better looking titles out this gen - especially in the FPS department -but i'll be goddamned if they manage to pack this much strategy- polish and style into a game featuring a stupendous amount of players 

Although i feel a little unnerved by everyones staple fear with this title- even in halo, Killzone or call of duty- one laggy guy can kill a feel good game - god i hope the netcode is up to scratch for this

I wonder why not many media make lists like this, I like it.

#12 Posted by get2sammyb (6412 posts) -

Agreed with everyone on the MAG demo. I thought that was mighty impressive. It looks super deep aswell - like I can't imagine playing this and doing well on my first few matches. It looks like there's a tactical thing going on with it.

its a F'ing GRIFFIN!!!!!!!!!!!!!

I was so hoping they'd announce/put out AdHoc party for the US at the very least. I mean, that goes hand-in-hand with the PSPGo! announcement, and all the games they showed had some AdHoc multiplayer.

Day 1 purchase for me buddy -we'll help eachother through it :D

Sony had a lot of cool stuff but, the show sorta felt a little disorganized and sloppy. But overall all cool stuff, definitely looking forward to getting a PS3.

A few points:

  • ModNation Racers is currently named incorrectly as ModNation Races. I requested a rename yesterday, but it has not yet been performed. Maybe you could do it and then fix your link.
  • Final Fantasy XIV's link goes to the Final Fantasy IV page.
#18 Posted by snide (2413 posts) -
@LordAndrew: As usual your attention to detail is impressive. Fixed.

Great Conference this year from Sony, in ReTarDedFisHy's opinion.

#20 Posted by gunslingerNZ (1901 posts) -

Mag looks pretty wild to me, it's like a full on war sim. Uncharted 2 and GOW were awesome as expected and Modnation looks like cart racing but actually fun!

So excited that GT5 is going to include WRC and Nascar, should mean there's heaps of variety to the title and there was damage ;)

New motion control looked super tight and actually here and now realistic instead of pie in the sky. The only problem for me was the lack of new heavy rain and ratchet info/footage and no release date for the last guardian...

#21 Posted by Kohe321 (3523 posts) -

Sony was great this year!

#22 Posted by RenegadeSaint (1536 posts) -

The Sony motion controls looked like they work quite well, but I can't help feel that it's basically the same thing as Wii Motion Plus.  I'm excited to see how it pans out, but I remain skeptical.

#23 Posted by Media_Master (3283 posts) -

I want to actually touch the GO

#24 Posted by handlas (2671 posts) -

meh...MAG looks amazing?  I thought it looked pretty bad tbh :(...sadly.

Uncharted looks amazing.  And playing the beta, the MP is fun as hell.

GOW3...bought.  Heavy Rain looks like it could be very kewl and different, but I'm still skeptical.  I've watched that same scene with the FBI agent like 4 different times and the dev gets all excited saying "OMG OMG don't die!" when you get into the fight with the big dood.  Yet I've never seen the scene play out differently.  The FBI guy always gets beat up a little and then the badguy gets crushed under the tractor.  Thought the scenes were suppose to be more dynamic.

Looking forward to other games like Lost Planet 2 since it is announced for PS3 as well.  Also Demon Soul's...waiting on that to come to the US.

Still the most impressive thing I saw was Alan Wake.  Cannot wait for that.

@Snapstacle: Ah good call! I had forgotten about adhoc party, Definitely would have been a nice announcement, I've gotten decent at using the japanese one but its still rather annoying sometimes, not to mention a total pain to download. They could have totally said they were launching ad hoc party as a new feature to launch with the PSP Go! and made a big deal over it or something.. Its still pretty unknown so people would eat that shit up.
#26 Posted by JukeboxJoe (242 posts) -

I can't find anything that I'm not looking forward to. Going to get all the previous GOW games and get ready for 3.

'As expected, that guy was a pushover' cracked me up

Greg Kasavin is my hero.

#28 Posted by Duckbutter (412 posts) -

i gotta give crazy props to Sony cuz they have the lowest install base, PS3 costs double than the other two systems, and Sony has 3 systems to worry about and STILL they have the same amount if not more games than Tendo and Soft this year. impressive.

so its like all the odds are against Sony but a PS3 owner wouldn't know it. where were other systems like the original Xbox or the Sega Saturn when the odds were against them? game-less, that's where. in NoGame Land where the mayor has a human body and an empty game case for a head and their country's flag logo is a sad kid holding a controller with nothing to play :( and the townfolk go to movies and its 2 hours of a screen saying Disc Slot Empty and they watch it and eat popcorn. and the trailers before the movie are the same and the security guard has a flashlight for people that try to sneak in. its like why does Microfsoft have the same amount of games as Sony when Micro only has one system to deal with and a Qaudrillion dollar budget?

How did they coordinate 250 to play one game?

#36 Posted by radion_null (160 posts) -

I'm excited about Uncharted 2, heavy Rain, and R&CF: Crack in time  oh, and GOW III!

not really into Sony's motion solution as much as I am with Natal. Having said that, they were both impressive.

Thinking really hard as to whether I want a PSP Go. Right now I am saying no.
