Goddamn Ustream crashed my porn.

But seriously, the conference was okay. They really should have had Bloodborne gameplay showing. We've seen it, it exists and it looks every bit as good as Demon's/Dark Souls (i.e. the best games of last gen). No Man's Sky and Batman Arkham Knight looked good and I'm still interested in The Order too.

I wasn't annoyed with them talking about making exclusive shows/movies for PSN because Sony Pictures makes great stuff: Breaking Bad, Justified, Waltz with Bashir, The Illusionist (2010), etc. But making shows based on "gamer's interests" is a bad idea. Powers didn't look good at all.

I loved the mini heart attack everyone had when "This is the last new game of the night"

They ruled E3 though, hopefully nintendo will take the cake though tomorrow.

Conference felt bloated as usual - I really wish they trimmed down on some of the filler and kept a decent pace.

As far as highlights go, Abzu and No Man's Sky were the best looking from the indie section. I've already seen the MGSV trailer, so maybe that's why it didn't feel as great. I'm personally interested in Let it Die just because of Suda51, and Grim Fandango was pretty neat.

Bloodbourne is pretty much the best game though - Or at least the one that interests me. Too bad I've already seen it lol

Abzu and No Man's Sky were definitely cool.

I'm especially excited for Abzu.

But I couldn't bare to watch the conference the whole way through. God, it was so boring.

Microsoft had a much better showing.

The highlight was Grim Fandango.
Really going to get that.

But as a sole Vita owner and a prospective PS4 owner, this conference did nothing to A. Alleviate my concerns for Vita support, or B. Convince me to purchase a PS4. It was, as someone mentioned earlier, bloated, and this was especially noticeable halfway through.

Other positive points were No Man's Sky, liked the look of that, and Uncharted 4 wasn't too bad looking. It's also hilarious how The Last Guardian wasn't mentioned.

All in all, Sony did a sub-par job, so I rank their conference below MS and slightly worse than or equal to Ubisoft.

Still have to see it, but somehow i can't seem to find much of a energy to put it on and watch it. It's just that sony doesn't offer much new and exiting anymore lately. It's just more of the same games with a different paint layer.

All the buzzwords and pr nonsense that mostly gets thrown out just pushes me away from it these days.

I probably will watch it at some point.

Just fastforward through all the bs.

It was such a bloated presentation it would only take 15 minutes to watch all the relevant info.

Few too many zombie games I think. Order 1886, Dead Island 2, Diablo DLC, The Last Of Us, and I'm sure another one I'm missing. In short the conference was "nice" but I think Microsoft did a little better (Plus I didn't really want to see a Battlefield Hardline trailer when Microsoft and EA had already showcased it)

Although I find the Playstation TV a very convincing product. Streaming PS3 games and playing Vita/PSP/PS1 games is nice, but having the option to remote play your PS4 nearly anywhere in your home is the single reason I'd buy one. Ultimately I'd want them to offer Remote play from a PS4 onto a PS3 (essentially save the need of buying a PlayStation TV for PS3 owners), but I don't think it will happen. Although I will be sad if they don't offer remote play from PS3 onto the Playstation TV without going through the online streaming service.

Really disappointing they didn't bother showing a gameplay trailer for Bloodborne, because it looked amazing from what I've seen (framerate issues and all)

Their marketing's really bad at times. Like with The Order, the conference demo got a bunch of flack but on the floor, when people were playing a different section and using the thermite gun, the impressions I've read are positive.

But I get why they didn't show the leaked trailer at the conference because it looks like a PS3 game compared to the new footage. And people were complaining about hitboxes (even though the enemy gets clipped on his side/leg), screen tearing and framerates in the new footage.

A video of Miyazaki giving details about the game and showing off these screenshots after the CGI trailer would have been good enough for me.






At least that leaked trailer's nothing like Namco's overproduced DkSII trailers.

Yeah this is most likely the reason we saw a CG trailer instead. I still loved it though!

Speaking as someone who thinks the Souls games are okay and didn't necessarily love them, as much as I don't like showing CGI trailers over gameplay, I'd... probably be more interested if I hadn't seen the leaked gameplay beforehand. The CGI trailer sets up some cool themes and environments and left a decent enough amount to the imagination, but when I look at the gameplay, I kinda just see... more Souls, but with guns. I recognize that I'm probably in the minority as far as this goes, and I do feel bad about saying I'd be more interested if they obscure what the game actually is. But... I suppose that's the truth. And I guess that's why CGI trailers are so prominent in general and I'm part of the problem, heh.
