What did you think of Sony’s E3 2009 keynote?


Some of it was already known, like the new PSP. The last Kojima mystery was Metal Gear Solid Peace Walker for PSP. It takes place 10 years after Metal Gear Solid 3 in the 1970′s. He said it’s a true sequel and Kojima himself will be involved in the game. It’s coming in 2010. I was hoping for a PS3 version. But I’ll pick it up at some point.

They showed off more of Uncharted 2 and it’s looks amazing. That’s a must have on my game list. Just a reminder the Uncharted 2 Multiplayer Beta starts tomorrow.

Final Fantasy 7 will finally arrive on the PlayStation Store, and speaking of Final Fantasy. Final Fantasy 14 Online will be exclusive to PlayStation 3 and be released in 2010.

Then from the makers of Grand Theft Auto comes a new game called Agent. No video on this one, but it’s exclusive to the PlayStation 3 as well.

Assassins Creed 2 looks great too, and you can unlock items in the game from the PSP version of Assassins Creed. Pretty cool feature.

Sony finally showed off their motion controller which has true 1 to 1 motion capture. It can track movement on a millimeter scale! I think it’s more accurate than the Wii too. It’s still in the alpha stage, so all they had to show is basically tech demos and they where very impressive. I was hoping they had some “real” games to show off with the motion controllers. But oh well. It’s set to be released in Spring 2010.

ModNation Racers is another “social” game like LittleBigPlanet. It’s a cart racing game. You can create your own racers, cart, even your own track. The track creator is very cool and seems simple to use. I think this game has huge potential.

Other games they showed are The Last Guardian and Gran Turismo 5. GT5 finally has car damage, which I know a lot of people have wanted.

And last but not least God of War 3. They showed off a demo and it looks great. It would be nice if they released a demo this week on the PlayStation Store. The game is due in Spring 2010.

Overall I think it was a good conference. Not their greatest though. What did you think?

    I didnt get to watch the whole show yet but Iam glad to hear about FFXlV online game (We will see how long it stays exclusive). Iam getting bored with FFxi lately so iam looking forward to upgraded graphics and gameplay. Where is KingdomHearts 3? Or is M$ saving that for the next 2010 E3? But MGS for the PSP? No price drop and no fancy update for PS3? Thats really WEAK!!

    Oh I forgot about MAG, they showed that off too. The idea seems great, they are letting people test it out on the E3 floor. So it will be interesting to see what people think of it.

    Overall good. I hope Sony puts it up on their Store for me to download and watch tonight.
    The motion controller looks very good. Best archery demo of the day.
    The Last Guardian looks even better.

    Nice to see that they are getting more video content but they really need to keep working on that.
    And nothing was mentioned about future updates to the system OS. Maybe we’ll hear more during the show.

    Now to wait for more gems to show up on the floor.

    A busy and expensive year ahead! Uncharted 2, MAG, Last Guardian, LBP PSP, Motorstorm Arctic Edge, GT PSP, GT5 (hopefully), ModNation Racers. Snake ‘stays at home’ in MGS Peace Walker, and a new Resi PSP game.

    Not interested in GoW3 or AC2. Did I forget anything else?

    I thought it was pretty good. A decent mix of new and old stuff to combat MS’s stuff from yesterday.

    In response to Trieloth’s complaint about a lack of price drop, the fact that it didnt happen earlier this year means that if its going to happen its going to happen this autumn. Doing a price drop in the middle of the year doesnt make any sense because the summer is usually the low point of the gaming calendar. So better to stick it out and get as many sales as you can on your releases during that period and then drop the price in late august or september (like with the X360 last year) to get maximum effect for the holiday rush.

    Trieloth. The PS3 update and price drop is coming, but Sony still has to move current systems out of stock. Releasing a cheaper unit in the fall just before all the big games hit doubles the marketing hit. Right now there’s little reason to purchase a PS3. Come Uncharted2 and R&C

    Some of the show was quite interesting. But I kept waiting for a big announcement that never came.

    I guess my favourite thing was ModNation Racers.

    The four great surprises from the Sony show:

    FFXIV MMO
    Agent Rockstar North
    ModNation Racers
    The Wand tech demo

    I’d assume that a PS3 price drop would coincide with the newer, cheaper-to-make, slimline model which hopefully will hit this fall. Dropping the price before then would be ridiculous (save the sales surge until after manufacture costs are way down rather than blow it shortly before).

    Overall great show.

    Uncharted 2 looks awesome. I’m gonna die alot.
    MAG looks boring. Not my type of game.
    GOW looks wickedly bloody.
    FFXIV Online?? Better not just be a rehash of FFXI.
    Nice to see FFXIII is coming along well, even though I’ve lost complete interest in it. Versus will be @ TGS I guess
    No release date for WCK. :|

    That should be WKC*

    uncharted 2
    the last guardian
    gt5
    agent
    they impressed me the most along with the PSP go and all its features.

    nice to see motion tech that actually looks usable in game.

    Enough AAA games to keep me busy for a year.

    ModNation racer seems very cool, but I was hoping for a “Little Big Racer” type of games with LBP characters and accessories.

    I did not buy a PSP game for a long time, Metal Gear Solid Peace Walker will be the next.
