PS3 News at GDC |

So this keynote by Phil Harrison. You know the one. At the upcoming GDC conference? Yeah, that’s the one. Everyone’s thinking that Sony’s had so many opportunities recently to give up some goods on the PS3 and they haven’t done it. Why should the GDC be any different?


Because GDC Director Jamil Moledina says so!! That’s why!

BIZ: What can you tell us about Phil Harrison’s keynote? Will we finally get some new information on the PlayStation 3?

JM: The answer is yes. In general, platform providers have a unique opportunity at the GDC to share knowledge with and inspire the people who will make or break their consoles, namely the game developers themselves. With that in mind, this GDC keynote, along with the Nintendo keynote by Satoru Iwata, have both been in development for several months, and contain significant editorial value and developer takeaway. I strongly encourage you to attend both platform keynotes.

Let’s just hope it’s real news like release dates, games, price, controller. And not things like how many transistors the RSX will have. – Talkin’ GDC with Jamil Moledina

    YEAH BABY!!!!

  • Gary

    I’m not getting my hopes up. Time and time again I’ve been expecting some new info from Sony at a new event and time and time again nothing has materialised.

    I feel numb 🙁

  • They better, because I hereby swear that if they break my balls one more time i’m buying an xbox360 !!

  • Black Guy

    GDC is not that significant compared to the other other events that Sony could unveil its news. Sony will opt to drop the word @ an exposition in league of E3 2006. If they r not ready by then or show nothing but more “target” videos, iDon’t c the PS3 coming this way until 2007.

  • Black Guy


    Just get the X360 now. U’ll feel better.

  • Yeah to be honest I was a little surprised that any new info would be in the offing at GDC, but I realize that whatever it is, it’ll probably be small potatos.

  • Michael

    Henning: I really doubt that it’ll be “small potatos” if they want to launch in “Spring” of this year. I expect Phil Harrison will announce all the of the ps3 features like online, what the final console and controler will look like, a quick look at their online plans, release date, and price. I also expect to see new video footage of games. but not playable. With his keynote only lasting a hour, I don’t think that he can fit in anything else. I expect E3 to be a real blow out continuation from GDC, with more indepth info with the works. I’ve been waiting anixiously like everyone else, and I decided to to get upset until I found out if we’d find out anything new at GDC; now that I know it is, I have strong faith that the Spring 06 launch is definitely possible.

  • Matt

    I think we will hear about their “Live” plan and a conformation on 2006 release (Holiday). They will probally anounce some of the games in development for launch window.

    E3 is when they will blow the doors off and show the final design which will be playable. That is also when they will announce and show a game we don’t know about for launch. They will need something to throw gas onto the hype fire.

    I am sticking to my feeling that if they don’t show much at GDC there are problems. Attendees should throw rocks if they just regurgitate the same old crap.

  • Yeah!
