Sony’s E3 Show

I will be sitting here hunched over my keyboard to give You the first full list of Sony’s show. Well a comprhensive list anyway. But first lets take a look at what Microsoft stole off Sony (and if you believe all the doomsayers declaring the end of the PS3).

 

Yesterday. The show got off to a great start. Microsoft showed great innovation to give Xbox gamers a game entitled Lips. Great concept, but Microsoft will sue anyone who calls it a Singstar™ rip off. They produced an exciting show off, for this, umm. (DONT SAY IT) game, duffy sang her own song which will feature in said game. Which she failed to hit the right notes much of the time. I in particular thought it was a great show.

This brings me to the end of the show, (i really dont want to put to much of MS in here) Where they brought out the president of Square-Enix, to showcase the exclusives that they have tied up to he Xbox. 1 of them is an exclusive only for the Xbox. The Last Remnant will be coming to the PS3 a little bit later. So he thanked the and Yoichi Wada walked off stage. Then as they were about to wrap it up. He came back into shot and tapped Don on the shoulder and with a big smile on his face declared he has one more big announcement. And thus millions of PS3 owners hearts sank. They knew what it was. The camara panned out to show the entire audience and the big screen to showcase Final Fantasy XIII. After 2 minutes or so. The trailer stopped. Light came on and with shock and awe the audience clapped hard. I will agree it is a major coup for the Xbox. Bu not one to destroy PS3 as many are saying. They have not even wanted to know about today at Sony’s show. No all that is happenig to them is the slow demise of their once cherished consoles.

I say this is to be expected. Third party companies spend millions on their games so it makes sense they release it multi platform. This is the reason so many projects get canned. This is the reason so many (albeit small) companies collapse. What most forget is that the PS3 will still have the game. And the PS3 version was in development way before the Xbox version. So this could be the first port to Xbox from PS3. As we PS3 owners have had to put up with so many ports thus far. It’s about time Xbox gamers had our ports. And hopefully it will be the first of many as more and more developers harness the capacity of the PS3 then port it over to the Xbox. With the boundaries pushed more we will see many more great games on the horizon.

This brings me to the show in 20 minutes. A lot of people are hoping news on the much tired of hearing about Home™. Yes about time they did give us a time frame on this. And then the romours are awash of God of War 3 at the show. Plus the PlayTV. And future firmware updates. Well all i can say is watch this space. As i believe it will be something special. Only if they can get Rick Astley to do a rick roll on Microsofts arses. Now that would be something special.

  6. Next up is talk on user generated content. Yes it is Little Big Planet. They will tie up the social experiance with gaming with the game with an exclusive level they make. And with Alex Evans playing it for us. And the features. The options are great with their own basketball outfit on. And a gimmicky show off with tables showing the figures on the gaming industry. Yes it does look like a cool level. Included in the level is the first line up for the PS3 platinum titles which include Resistence fall of man, Motorstorm, Oblivion, Warhawk, Call of duty 3, assains creed, Ninja gaiden, Fight night round 3 and rainbow6 vegas. And going by the Little Big Planet. If this is what we can do it is going to be a great game indeed. Coming october.

  28. inFamous. Giving us an in-depth look at the world of the city. Kill or help it’s up to you. An ordinary Joe consumed by his own power.
  29. One more game for us. The secret game. Zipper Interactive the developer. Exclusive. 256 server online games. 8 player squads. You grow into the leading role due to the growth of your character. TRAILER. This is what online gaming should be. Titled M.A.G.

So that was an impressive Conference. If the doom and gloom continues. Then these are just fussy people. Before you saw the line up for releases for the PS3 note he said exclusives. Weather they are timed or not. Thats one heck of a line up of exclusives for us. The M.A.G game looked like a system seller.

 

And then God Of War 3. Like i said nuff said. That’ll be your system seller. And it looked awesome. I truly can not wait for the future. Doc fire up the DeLorean.
