Here's the first PSP remaster game they're talking about. GoW games. In 3D.

Clever to release a cheap 3D PS3 branded TV. Entry-level stuff is smart.

The monitor is trying to attract the college crowd. I guess they did some kind of research and found out that college dorms are dominated by the Xbox 360.

that resistance/move bundle is pretty sweet. That's closer to $250 worth of products aint it?

Decker
06-06-11, 08:55 PM
My AV guy messed up the installation of the USB cable in the wall and my camera doesn't work anymore. Don't know if I'll ever get my Move to work again. :sad: Not sure if this game will be any good, but playing Resistance 3 would be fun.

BTW wasn't MS supposed to announce 3D gameplay as well during their conference?

DGibFen
06-06-11, 08:57 PM
Ah, I remember this game when it was called "The Legend of Zelda".

Decker

that resistance/move bundle is pretty sweet. That's closer to $250 worth of products aint it?

Camera $40

Move $50

Sharp Shooter $40

Total seperately = $220. They have the same deal right now with SOCOM 4, but this is certainly a better game.

Have you ever noticed that when Sony gets exclusive content, it's free stuff added on, and when MS gets an exclusive deal with a multiplatform deal, it's the right to buy DLC sooner?

I was really interested in the new PSP.. but At&t? Pass.

Before Kaz Hirai or any other Sony officials announced the actual price of the recently renamed PlayStation Vita, the company's PR wing tipped us off to the price and release date: PlayStation Vita will launch worldwide "by the end of 2011," and will arrive in two models starting at $249. SCE detailed the two separate PSV models as a 3G/Wi-Fi version running $299/€299/¥29,980, and a Wi-Fi-only model for $249/ €249/¥24,980.

Nice price...but it's still a Handheld. Pretty much over those. I think Nintendo has the right idea gearing their handhelds towards children, as most adults couldn't care less.

Michael Corvin
06-06-11, 10:03 PM
Just getting caught up. So Bioshock Infinite's draw on PS3 is Move and a copy of Bioshock that can be had for $10? rotfl Yeah, those don't add up to ditching a 360 controller. Same goes for Battlefield.

Nice price...but it's still a Handheld. Pretty much over those. I think Nintendo has the right idea gearing their handhelds
towards children, as most adults couldn't care less.

I think you're right, but pricing this the same as the 3DS is a good move.

Nice price...but it's still a Handheld. Pretty much over those. I think Nintendo has the right idea gearing their handhelds towards children, as most adults couldn't care less.

I have to agree with this. I think the price point will help, but I just think in general portable gaming doesn't lend itself to hardcore gamers. The iPhone games are so popular because of how simple they are to pick up and play.

Uncharted: Buttons, Dual analogue sticks, d-pad, front touch screen, back touch screen

Tiny Wings: Touch the screen

I know the touch controls are optional but to me if you have 2 ways to play you have none.

Well, I caught myself up and only the Uncharted Demo was entertaining. Sly 4 could be good, but I honestly only played Part 1.

While both shows were less-than-stellar, I think Microsoft wins so far. Better exclusives (2 new Halos), good system enhancements with Youtube/Bing etc, and finally some use for the Kinect.

Setzer
06-06-11, 10:54 PM
Definitely sold on the Vita for $249. Was even considering it at $299.

UncleGramps
06-06-11, 11:12 PM
I found Sony's conference to be much, much more entertaining than Microsoft's. Very little about Microsoft's presentation impressed or surprised me. Meanwhile, Sony had an impressive Uncharted 3 demo, an awesome Sly 4 trailer, the $500 3D TV bundle, Vita games, and a pretty awesome price for the Vita. No contest for me.

tlwizard
06-06-11, 11:15 PM
Do we know yet if the 3D co-op tech is proprietary? Or will that be functional for anyone else with a 3D TV? And do both players get a 3D experience, or does it use the 3D tech to give each player their own 2D screen?

Decker
06-06-11, 11:16 PM
While both shows were less-than-stellar, I think Microsoft wins so far. Better exclusives (2 new Halos), good system enhancements with Youtube/Bing etc, and finally some use for the Kinect.

Agree to disagree. Using Bing to find Marketplace content is stupid at best, money-grubbing at worst, Halo re-do was known about for months (and really no different from the oodles of PS2 remakes already out for the PS3) and Halo 4 is a long, long way off (though the trailer was cool). Can't compare to Sony showing lots of new, E3-playable games, having a new handheld introduced with many cool features and a surprisingly reasonable price for the content it provides. Plus some good exclusive bonuses on multiplatform games.

Wow, new Sony 3d tv doing split screen gameplay full screen at the same time. Both utilizing different glasses that superimpose the images on top of one another. no one watching will be able to know what the hell is going on likely, but if you're playing then that's pretty awesome.

500 bucks for a 24" display, 1 pair of glasses and Resistance 3

I found both Micro/Sony to be crap outside the Vita...so Sony wins with that...

I mean, Gears and Uncharted are both going to be amazing...but we already knew that...I did not need to see them play that....

Most of what made E3 great today was showing stuff that was for both platforms.....so that is a wash...(LOVED THE GRAW STUFF!!!)

Vita looks sweet though...

Last week was the first realization of what their drop from DirecTV actually meant. The loss of their E3 and SDCC coverage. Granted, you still had to listen to their staff of mostly morons, but hey, at least it was on TV. (Apparently I have been unencumbered in getting my fill of Cops on the other 12 channels airing 4 hours worth of episodes a day.)

Wait, everyone is excited about the Vita now? Really guys? It's basically the 2011 version of the PSP.

Maybe the best question is, why, if you weren't interested in the original PSP, are you interested now in the Vita?

I got a Phat PSP when it was released, then upgraded to a PSP-3000 and I will probably upgrade to a Vita some time in the future.

Any of the other companies really. All Nintendo has to do is flash another Zelda or Mario Kart and the entire world seems to think it's the greatest idea ever.

There are only so many game types. Would you rather they come out with a platformer not using Mario?

A racing game without the characters?

Do you want new types of games, or just not the same characters used?

I will definitely give them credit on the consoles for innovation, it's not always for the best, but at least they try.

So the big wins for MS were Halo 4 and an Uncharted-like Tomb Raider, and the big wins for Sony were a PSP that added a touch screen and a few sequels. Where's the innovation again? I don't mean to start a debate, I just don't see the kind of innovation you want anywhere in the industry, most new IPs seem to do terribly and we have sequels after sequels after sequels.
