You can watch the live E3 stream live, right here! Turned up a little late, missed the first few minutes or have you missed it completely!? Fear not as below we’ll be updating this page every few minutes throughout the press conference.
If you missed Sony’s E3 2011 Press Conference then you can watch it again here. If you’ve been living under a rock and aren’t sure what’s announced, be forewarned that below is our live feed from the show and contains a lot of spoilers.
Sony E3 2011 Press Conference Live Feed
Update: It’s now 1:06 AM UK time, and the press conference has yet to start – there is apparently a delay as Sony are still getting the members of the press seated.
Finally at 1:16 AM in the UK (16 minutes late) Sony get their show under way.
Jack Tretton comes on stage and damn near craps his pants after realising people have actually turned up to the conference.
Tretton comes out and tells the press “You’re welcome” for the PSN Outage for giving everyone something to discuss. Start with a joke, it’s a bad joke… but it’s still a joke.
The PlayStation Network is running at around 90% of what it previously was running at before the attacks.
PlayStation plan on giving free access to CinemaNow, adding to their current group of HuluPlus, Netflix and so many more.
Uncharted 3: Drakes Deception
They kick off the show with a brand new trailer for E3. The video is a gameplay trailer showing Drake on a ship that seems to be in a horrific storm. The visuals in this trailer are beautiful, we’ll be hosting this one up later on so definitely keep an eye out for it. The video shows off a lot of new technology here, it’s almost a tech demo from Naughty Dog – it’s got dynamic lighting, water effects, physics… they’re just getting cocky here. Uncharted Multiplayer will begin on June 28th, and during October Uncharted fans can visit any Subway in the US and get a sneak peak of the full multiplayer version of Uncharted 3. Finally we’re left with a second trailer (also available in 3D) which ends with 11/1/11, the release date of Uncharted 3.
One of the developers from Insomniac Games comes on the stage with possibly the campest looking PlayStation controllers I’ve ever seen.
Set a few years after the events of Resistance 2, Resistance 3 picks up right where we left off last time. The Resistance 3 trailer is 3 minutes long and it looks incredibly similar to Resistance 2.
Resistance 3: Doomsday Edition for $150 was announced, meaning you get the game plus a PlayStation Move bundle.
God Of War series, ICO and Shaddow of Collosus HD Remakes
Yep you read that right, all three of those titles will be remade in full HD on PlayStation 3.
PlayStation Branded 3D Displays
This is a first “Wow” here, Sony have announced a new television set that will be PlayStation branded display. You can play two player multiplayer without splitscreen, the monitor will split the screen visually so the each player will see an individual screen – no more coop split screen gaming! The bundle will be available as a bundle including Resistance 3, 3D Glasses, HDMI cable and the monitor for $499.
A new feature has been added called “NBA On The Move” giving gamers the ability to play NBA 2K12 with their PlayStation move whilst still “delivering the best NBA experience ever”
2K Games announce that “anyone can play this”, to prove it Kobe Bryant comes out and actually shows that not anyone can.
2K Games claim that on “October 4th NBA 2K12 will change the game.”
Medieval Moves: Deadman’s Quest
Next up is a decent looking Move title. As you may have guessed it’s a dungeons based “PS Move” style gameplay. It doesn’t look like it’s on rails (compared to damn near every Kinect game in Microsoft’s press conference earlier) and has an awful lot of different annimations for you to pull off.
A preview trailer for one of PlayStation’s biggest titles starts this segment. Quite why they’re showing a title that is pretty much already available at E3 is beyond us here.
PlayStation Move compatability is coming in a future update, and will allow gamers to create their own Move titles for others to play.
Santa Monica Studios and Light Box debut a brand new “run and gun” (yes Jack Tretton used that phrase) title. A great looking debut trailer for the game, it shows very little gameplay but goes from FPS based gameplay to air combat all the way to space combat. We want more…
Sly Cooper: Theives of Time
A fun looking title, again no gameplay here at all but a decent short and funny trailer.
