Sony Recap
« on: June 17, 2010 12:30 PM »
Sony decided to take a different approach to its competitors, saving all of its major game demos for last. Instead, they chose to headline their press conference with 3D compatibility and Move, introducing the new game Sorcery along the way.
Major surprises include Portal 2 and Twisted Metal, the latter of which is exclusive. Sony also announced plenty of exclusive limited edition exclusives for games like Medal of Honor, along with the new PlayStation Plus.

Here's the complete rundown.

PS3 3D: Killzone 3 in Action

Kaz Hirai was Sony's first speaker, and he started off by talking about 3D while various supported games were shown in the background.

"2010 will most likely be remembered as the year the PlayStation brought 3D to the gaming industry," he said.

The centerpiece of the demonstration was Killzone 3, which was given a live demo on stage. Helghast troopers were shown attacking with jet packs on an ice planet. After the foes are dispatched, the main character grabs the jet pack for himself. There's also a rail shooting segment that puts the player behind a chaingun.

After the Killzone 3 demonstration, Sony confirmed that Gran Turismo 5, MotorStorm Apocalypse, The Sly Collection. Crysis 2, Mortal Kombat, Shaun White Skateboarding, Ghost Recon Future Soldier, Tron Evolution and NBA 2K11 will all feature 3D support.

Killzone 3 will be available February 2011, and will be fully compatible with the PlayStation Move at launch.

The PlayStation Move: Sorcery, Tiger and Heroes on the Move

Having shown off the Move, Sony's Peter Dille came out to talk about the PlayStation Move. Dille's emphasized that it will appeal to both casual and core gamers, bringing new experiences for both.
One of the new games introduced by Sony is Sorcery, which pits a younger sorcerer against the "Nightmare Queen." The demo is spent exploring a large dungeon, with actions with the wand affect spell power and trajectory. Sorcery is due Spring 2011.

EA Sports head of worldwide development Andrew Wilson demonstrated the Move's compatibility with Tiger Woods PGA Golf. Unfortunately for Wilson, his shots kept going in the sand bunkers, so his primary focus was demonstrating the peripheral's 1:1 motion support as he tried to save par. Support for the Move will be added as a downloadable update when the peripheral arrives later this year.

Finally, Sony showed a trailer for Heroes on the Move. Designed specifically for the Move, it features Jax, Sly Cooper, Ratchet and others working together for the first time.

Move will be available for $49.99, with the Navigation Controller being available for $29.99. The bundle will include the controllers plus Sports Champions for $99.99, with standalone games being priced at $39.99.

Look for Move on September 15 in Europe and September 19 in North America,

The PSP: Invizimals, Ghost of Sparta, Patapon 3

After unveiling an ad campaign starring "Marcus," Sony announced Invizimals, which will use a special camera to introduce a new layer of interaction.
They also unveiled a new trailer for God of War: Ghost of Sparta, which strongly hints that it will be an origin story for Kratos, putting it even further back than the original Chains of Olympus.

Sony is promising to continue its support for PSP, releasing more than 70 games by December. They include Valkyria Chronicles 2, The 3rd Birthday, Patapon 3 and a PSP version of EyePet.

Little Big Planet 2

Alex Evans demonstrated Little Big Planet 2, showing off the competitive scoring mode. Examples include an Air Hockey-like minigame, which was created using the physics and tools within the game. Another game lets players put a hat on Sackboy, allowing him to shoot things like rockets.
Media Molecule also invited the top creators and let them run wild over the course of 24 hours. The result was everything from a Tempest-like 3D shooter to a full real-time strategy game. It's also possible to create custom HUDs and other mechanics using the in-game tools.

Little Big Planet 2 is due this fall.

PlayStation Plus

The new subscription package will be called PlayStation Plus, giving users an exclusive suite features. They include early demos, full PSN games, themes and minis, discounts on the PlayStation Store, and automated downloads that will send a continuous stream of content to the PS3.
The subscription will be priced at $49.99 for a year, or $17.99 for three months. In addition, the first three months will be available free, with the first month featuring WipeOut HD, a trial for inFamous, Field Runners, Age of Zombies and Rally Cross for the PS1. You will be able to keep all of the content for the duration of your subscription.

It will be available later this month.

Portal 2 Coming to PS3

Portal villain GLaDOS was on hand to make the next announcement -- Portal 2 will be coming to PS3. Gabe Newell then came on the stage to introduce the game, and address some of his previous comments.
"I've been pretty outspoken in my comments about next-generation game consoles. So I would like to thank everyone at Sony for their gracious hospitality and not repeatedly punching me in the face," Newell joked.

Newell said that the PS3 version of the game will be the "best version on any console," featuring Steam cloud support.

It will be available in 2011.

Twisted Metal

To finish off the show, Sony confirmed what has been speculated on since last year -- David Jaffe is indeed making a new Twisted Metal game, and it will be available exclusively for the PS3.
After an intro trailer, mascot Sweet Tooth actually drove onto the stage as Jaffe introduced his game. It will feature air combat for the first time, and will throw in elements like motorcycles.

The centerpiece was the new mode "Nuke," which is team, objective-based mode. The factions that were featured were based around characters Sweet Tooth and Dollface, with the goal being to capture the faction leader. The new game will also feature a full campaign mode. It's scheduled for release sometime in 2011.

With Microsoft, Electronic Arts, and Ubisoft out of the way, all that was left for the press conferences today was Sony. The Japanese powerhouse showed off Destiny as its first trailer of the night. We saw a far more polished look at Bungie's new title, and Sony was quick to boast that the game would have exclusive content on the PlayStation 4, and the beta would begin on July 17th, only on PS4. Alongside the standalone release of Destiny, Sony will release an Arctic White PlayStation 4 bundled with the game. Both purchase options will be available in September.
