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?
