    created by buzz_clik, winner of the Sony E3 Banner Challenge!

    Welcome to the E3 2010 Sony Press Conference Discussion!

    Welcome my fellow Giant Bomb comrades! Unless you have be living under a rock that doesn't have internet access, you know that this week is E3 2010. As with tradition, this means that the "Big Three" will be giving press conferences to discuss their past, present, and future in the video game industry. To make the community less chaotic and easier to navigate, we have created a "sticky" thread for each conference. in this thread, we ask that you come here to discuss your general feelings/opinions/thoughts on the Sony press conference.

    Keep Discussion On-Topic!

    This thread is dedicated solely for general discussion of the Sony press conference. What this means is:

    • Only discussion of the Sony press conference is allowed. Please keep the discussions of the Nintendo and Microsoft press conference in their respective stickied threads.
    • No off-topic discussion at any time. Want to talk about the World Cup or interleague play in MLB? Do so in other threads.

    Any posts/discussions found in this thread that do not relate to the Sony press conference will result in the guilty user(s) being sent a PM by one of the moderators.

    Specific Announcements

    As with every E3 press conference, there will be specific announcements that you most certainly want to talk about. While we love your enthusiasm, we want this thread to only be about the overall general discussion of the Sony press conference. Therefore, we ask you to discuss the specific announcements in the forums of their respective Wiki pages. You can learn how best to do this in our

    E3 2010 and You!

    thread.

    Game Forums

    Like with specific announcements, we would like you to not get into discussions of individual games in this thread and instead post your topics/discussions in their respective forums(again, you can learn how to this in the aforementioned

    E3 and You!

    thread). Also, please refrain from loading the

    PS3

    and

    PSP

    forums with discussions of individual games. Breaking either rule will result in the user(s) being sent a PM by one of the moderators.

    General Rules & Guidelines

    Even during E3 tomfoolery, the general rules and guidelines of the Giant Bomb community still apply. You can refresh your memory about them in the

    Site Rules & FAQs

    thread. There you can learn about all of the rules of not only the Forums, but also the Wiki, which I am sure many of you will be heavily involved with this week. The sequence of punishments for infractions against these rules still apply as well.

    Anyone expecting Sony to announce a competitor to the 3DS? They have to be cooking something up on the handheld front, but is it too soon for them to be showing it?

    A hard act to follow, but as long as Sony doesn't have a bunch of awkward acting it should be pretty good since they have a nice list of games coming. I hope they showcase them as in-depth as Nintendo did. 
     
    @MattyFTM: I think they may quietly exit the handheld business after seeing what the 3DS can do...

    There is going to be so much 3D at this thing. GT5, KZ3, probably Motorstorm Apocalypse and Infamous 2 as well.

    I'll be looking forward to seeing if they do announce anything relating to the PSP or the PSP2; especially with those big PSP game sales that they started recently.  I definitely think they've got to do something big though - between Nintendo's press conference with its abundance of surprises and Microsoft revealing both the slim and showing off Kinect in action as much as they did, Sony will have to do something more than just show off the Move even more than they already have.

    Hard to beat Nintendo. They surpassed all expectations.
     
    I'll expect a completely solid conference at the very least. Hopefully there'll be a few surprises.

    Kevin Butler. Do it. 
     
    Other than that, Sony should announce PSP's successor. Sony revealed huge games before E3, they need something up their sleeve.

    I really hope that is the case. Giving some good news before E3, then actually having surprises at the conference. What's the point of E3 if not for new developments and surprises?

    I would like some Little Big Planet 2 gameplay and a PSP2 might be announced with better piracy protection since the original PSP was easily cracked. I'm mainly looking forward to gameplay footage of Sony's major games.

    I just want another Last Guardian Trailer. Sony Doesn't need to show any game-play or give it a date just a Trailer. Hell say it is move compatible and you have a sale.

    I'm hoping to see a PSP2 ( I really like my PSP even if I don't play it much anymore) and a sequel to the Legend of Dragoon (which won't happen). I'm not saying those two things are enough to "beat" Nintendo, but it would make me happy.

    I have a feeling Sony is going to impress us the most once again folks.  
     
    MS sucked big time this year, Nintendo was surprisingly very good!!! and Sony is just going to show off the most impressive stuff, and the most stuff too probably.

    Nintendo were amazing this year, but Microsoft were terrible. If Sony announce a few good games and bring on Kevin Butler, they should have a good one.

    Sony could very well fail though. Sometimes they're kinda dumb, huh? They had an awesome show last year. I hope they come out with a simple, effective handheld focused only on games, and not on media. That killed the PSP. Of course, media is their entire mission statement.  
     
    Here's hoping for some new IP's and displays of already announced new IP's (Agent and Last Guardian plz).

    It would be like the N-Gage all over again!  Though, honestly, seeing all the stuff they had designed the PSP to do, somehow them wanting to add a phone to the mix doesn't sound that crazy.

    I agree. I think it's a shame that they have that whole 3D thing to talk about as well as an hour to waste on discussing the Move.

    Agent should make a showing IMO. Sony's been pretty good with the new IP's, I don't think we're in trouble there.

    Hope Move is shown to be more than just wiihdplus :/  Not a big fan of kinect either but at least it's slightly different.
     
    Biggest change that would make me happy would be online changes and a new controller.

    I was waiting for these press conference to surprise me. Microsoft didn't do it since we knew about what they talked about already. Nintendo announced some pretty good first party games. Sony... lets wait and see... Nothing big from their press conference has been leaked.

    My predictions. Kevin Butler not host, but be in a ridiculous amount of videos. 
    The PSP2 will be announced and be backwards compatible with dual analogue at 249.00 
    The PS3 will receive crapload of bundles to make it appear cheaper. 
    PS2 Backwards Compatibility/ Cross Game Chat/ PS3 OS Redesign/ and PS3+ will be addressed
    Kojima will announce something.
    Epic Games will announce something
    I Am Alive will be shown off. 

    The last 3 are reaching, but I figured the first four were tame.

    This edit will also create new pages on Giant Bomb for:

    Beware, you are proposing to add brand new pages to the wiki along with your edits. Make sure this is what you intended. This will likely increase the time it takes for your changes to go live.
