You can watch a live stream of the conference via Home (contain your excitement, I dare you ), and there will be an icon under the 'What's New' category of the XMB, which will pipe the entire show through to you. What Are We Expecting: Vita, Vita and more Vita. Saying that, there's been plenty of buzz about Sony upgrading their Playstation Plus service with cloud streaming and a more tiered price offering. Plus will also be announced for Vita. There's also going to be a host of games of course. Sony has the habit of revealing many of it's upcoming schedule ahead of E3, and this year has been no different. So far we've had: God of War: Ascension Ratchet & Clank: Full Frontal Assault Sports Champions 2 The Last of Us The Last Guardian Sony Allstars: Battle Royale Sly 4 Ni No Kuni Dust 514 The Witch & The Hundred Knights Warrior's Lair Little Big Planet Karting Papo & Yo The Unfinished Swan Also hinted at, are new games from Quantic Dream and it's high time we hear what Guerrilla Games and Sucker punch are up to. The real meat of the show will be Vita though. Already it sounds as though Sony are going to be pushing the platform hard, with recent announcements/leaks including: Sly 4 Assassins Creed 3: Liberation Medal of Honour: Warfighter Sony Allstars: Battle Royale Ghost Recon: Final Mission Need For Speed Jet Set Radio Little Big Planet: Karting Call of Duty Bioshock Metal Gear Solid: HD Collection Lego Batman 2 Oddworld: Strangers Wrath Little Big Planet Killzone Phantasy Star: Online 2 Soul Sacrifice Urban Trials Rayman: Legends Retro City Rampage Sound Shapes Gravity Daze Guacamelee ...and a multitude of other smaller titles I'm also keen to see if they have any serious Playstation Suite announcements, and how much support that's getting. What We Got: Take a look at that list above, take a good look and then ask yourself why Sony chose to talk about just 5 of them... five.....F.I.V.E....fyyyyvvvvveee, God of War, Last Of Us, Sony All Stars, Assassins Creed Vita and Beyond (New Quantic Dream). No talk of cloud gaming initiatives, no remarkable new services for either PS3 or Vita announced, no Vita price cut (although an Assassins Creed bundle is planned), no shake up of the Plus service (although current NA subscribers do get Infamous 2, LittleBigPlanet 2, Just Cause 2 and Saints Row 2) and no surprise exclusives. The only big surprise was a JK Rowling partnership on a new initiative called 'Wonder Book', which is a Move compatible children's book, which features plenty of AR tricks. Last Of Us was the star of the show, and shows that this is a surprisingly violent but markedly different game to Uncharted. Looks awesome. Overall though, this was a huge disappointment, and based on their release schedule, it didn't need to be. I honestly don't know what they're playing at, but to be frank, it was a waste of a great stage. Gutted. 31 Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
