[E3 2013] Gamer UK Liveblog: Sony Conference

TIRED.
E3 2013. Sony. PlayStation 4.

Okay team, we made it. 2AM is not far away and with it comes the Sony E3 Press conference. It has been a long day, and all this time spent staring at screens has caused heavy tiredness, especially on my part.

So what do do we expect to see? The PlayStation 4 console and Bungie’s Destiny are two confirmed items, but more than likely we will see some more Killzone 4, some God of War and if we are lucky they will spend way too much time on sales figures from last year.

Join us very soon, and remember to comment through the show: we have live discussion enabled!

To get in contact, comment below or send us a tweet @gameruktweets!

Alex Bullock June 11, 20133:23 am

Thanks for those who stuck with us through the day, I hope you got some kind of masochistic pleasure out of our blathering, and I hope Nintendo will be the icing on the cake.

Tom June 11, 20133:22 am

Well with all todays news I think It is bed time!
See you all later at 3PM for the Nintendo Direct Stream Liveblog!

Night All!

Tom June 11, 20133:20 am

Microsoft and Nintendo drop out of the console market, begin to solely develop titles for PlayStation.

Microsoft titles non-transferable.

Alex Bullock June 11, 20133:19 am

Part of me is thinking ‘poor Nintendo’, part of me thinks this will benefit them hugely. Early days last gen it was the Wii60 combo, this time the WiiS4?

Tom June 11, 20133:19 am

I feel like the TV segment was there just to fuck with everyone

Alex Bullock June 11, 20133:18 am

That was a technical hiccup in an alpha game build, I wouldn’t read too much into it. There was the TV segment too. I think they made up for those

Tom June 11, 20133:17 am

The DRM and price news have overshadowed a lot of news… especially the AC Black Flag fail

Alex Bullock June 11, 20133:16 am

Let’s just consider, too, that the PS4 is MORE GRAPHICALLY CAPABLE and has more RAM than the Xbox One, and is selling for almost £100 less.

Alex Bullock June 11, 20133:14 am

I must have missed several things

Alex Bullock June 11, 20133:13 am

Tonnes of indie exclusives, The Elder Scrolls Online, Kingdom Hearts, Final Fantasy XV, exclusive content for multi-platforms. This is all before we got the DRM revelations and prices

Tom June 11, 20133:13 am

So… feel sorry for Dew and Doritos right now.

Alex Bullock June 11, 20133:11 am

You get Drive Club for free. That’s a full priced title. PS Plus is fucking fantastic already, there’s no reason not to have it on PS3 right now. It was underhanded but I can take it.

Tom June 11, 20133:10 am

People are complaining about PS online charge.
Why are the bothered, pay for it with cancelled XBL Gold!!

Alex Bullock June 11, 20133:09 am

This is where I am right now

Tom June 11, 20133:09 am

Elder Scrolls Online
Destiny
DRM-Free
The INdie Games
You can sell your games
You can lend your games
£349 Price tag.

Oh you Sony <3

Tom June 11, 20133:08 am

SO.

Tom June 11, 20133:07 am

Very difficult to let that bother me at all!

Alex Bullock June 11, 20133:06 am

Hard to feel aggrieved, isn’t it

Tom June 11, 20133:06 am

Yeah, still less than Xbox One for a better console.

Alex Bullock June 11, 20133:05 am

£349 is still a rip off when you convert it, but it’s still considerably cheaper.

Tom June 11, 20133:05 am

Did someone shit inside every model? Why is this all too good.

Tom June 11, 20133:04 am

£349… Sony you glorious bastards. You brought a tear to my eye

Alex Bullock June 11, 20133:04 am

I have to believe that. Nobody who can’t afford to buy every console would actively choose the Xbone, and I say that as someone who has a 360 and not a PS3.

Tom June 11, 20133:04 am

The thing is Microsoft signed their own death warrant when they didn’t have to.

Alex Bullock June 11, 20133:03 am

They’ve won it.

Tom June 11, 20133:02 am

I’m not there yet
BUT SOLD.

Laura Ash June 11, 20133:02 am

PS4 TO BE $399

Tom June 11, 20133:02 am

Shame to lose all my Achievements though, could Sony accept them over haha!

Tom June 11, 20133:01 am

So I know what console I will be buying Destiny for

Alex Bullock June 11, 20132:59 am

@SgtPooptickler: MICROSOFT TOLD STATUS:
[ ] NOT TOLD
[ ] TOLD
[x] FUCKING TOLD

[x] KNIGHTS OF THE TOLD REPUBLIC

Tom June 11, 20132:59 am

Thats cool, public events

Tom June 11, 20132:57 am

Referring back to the DRM news.

Tom June 11, 20132:57 am

So its basically DriveClub with a free years worth of Plus
Or Plus Year Subscription with a free copy of DriveClub

Alex Bullock June 11, 20132:56 am

Oversimplifying a bit but it’s a fair point

Alex Bullock June 11, 20132:56 am

@PhillipCostigan: By the way, your entire first year of Plus will be paid by the free copy of Driveclub, so it doesn’t matter that MP is behind a pay wall.

Alex Bullock June 11, 20132:56 am

Halo crossed with Borderlands is what I’m seeing

Tom June 11, 20132:54 am

I’m majorly hyped for Destiny, but the DRM with PS4 has over hyped me!

Laura Ash June 11, 20132:53 am

That video is hilarious.

Tom June 11, 20132:53 am

My god thats hilarious haha

Alex Bullock June 11, 20132:53 am

Looks nice this. It’s almost irrelevant. Could you even imagine this beforehand? People not really caring about Destiny so much as the stuff before it?

Alex Bullock June 11, 20132:52 am

@Cheesemeister3k: Sony to Microsoft: “Just let it happen, it’ll be over soon.” #PS4NoDRM #PS4 #XboxOne #JumpOut

Alex Bullock June 11, 20132:51 am

haha oh this is just cruel http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=kWSIFh8ICaA

Tom June 11, 20132:51 am

Listen to the music. Its Marty O’Donnell 😀

Alex Bullock June 11, 20132:49 am

It’s kind of amazing that they haven’t showed The Last Guardian yet again, and people are still totally stoked

Tom June 11, 20132:49 am

I can hear Marty’s soundtrack already…

Tom June 11, 20132:48 am

DESTINY!

Laura Ash June 11, 20132:47 am

I don’t think they really have to mention a price. It would be good if they do though.

Tom June 11, 20132:47 am

That doesn’t matter. People will pay for online with their cancelled Gold subscriptions

Alex Bullock June 11, 20132:47 am

It seems like you have to pay for online now, but that will still include Plus. You don’t need to pay for media services though

Laura Ash June 11, 20132:47 am

They’ve already belittled Microsoft, they can pretty much do what they want now.

Alex Bullock June 11, 20132:45 am

Laura’s right, the price is still the biggest factor for most people. They might not even announce it here.

Tom June 11, 20132:44 am

No periodical checks HAHA
DESTROYING MICROSOFT

Laura Ash June 11, 20132:44 am

Just waiting for a lower price now 😛

Alex Bullock June 11, 20132:44 am

He’s Xboning Microsoft

Tom June 11, 20132:44 am

Best conference ever. of all time.

Tom June 11, 20132:44 am

Announce a price for under £400 and you’ve got me Sony!

Alex Bullock June 11, 20132:44 am

Is this the best E3 conference ever?

Alex Bullock June 11, 20132:43 am

WHAMMY

Alex Bullock June 11, 20132:43 am

NO ONLINE REQUIREMENT

Alex Bullock June 11, 20132:43 am

It’s kind of sad that he can effectively milk this for applause. We won’t steal your money! CLAP CLAP

Tom June 11, 20132:43 am

OMG THOSE CHEERS

Tom June 11, 20132:43 am

Alex Bullock June 11, 20132:42 am

I love Jack Tretton all of a sudden. Forgive me Jack

Alex Bullock June 11, 20132:42 am

This is massive. I didn’t expect that at all.

Laura Ash June 11, 20132:42 am

PS4 supports used games!!

Tom June 11, 20132:42 am

Right, can we Destiny now.

Alex Bullock June 11, 20132:42 am

NO USED GAME DRM

Tom June 11, 20132:40 am

Ah the wasteland and Bathesda lured me into Fallout

Alex Bullock June 11, 20132:40 am

IT’S MAD MAX

Alex Bullock June 11, 20132:40 am

MAD MAX

Tom June 11, 20132:39 am

Is….is this Fallout?

Tom June 11, 20132:39 am

ESO BETA exclusive for PS4

Alex Bullock June 11, 20132:39 am

hello there, what’s this

Tom June 11, 20132:38 am

So the forces of Oblivion are the enemy

Alex Bullock June 11, 20132:38 am

What are the odds on him doing 10 mins of voicework and dying

Alex Bullock June 11, 20132:38 am

This is the Elder Scrolls Online, spring 2014, on PS4.

Tom June 11, 20132:38 am

Yeh Gambon did a previous trailer I beleive

Alex Bullock June 11, 20132:37 am

Gambon?

Alex Bullock June 11, 20132:37 am

Who is that doing the voice over? Definitely recognise them

Tom June 11, 20132:37 am

Well done Sony, you have just won.

Tom June 11, 20132:37 am

I thought it would be PC only

Tom June 11, 20132:37 am

Wait wat?

Alex Bullock June 11, 20132:36 am

Talking of Skyrim…TESO

Tom June 11, 20132:36 am

I’m not sure, I think so, to the same extent as GTA I would expect

Alex Bullock June 11, 20132:36 am

Linear narrative, you have areas you can partially explore

Alex Bullock June 11, 20132:35 am

It’s not open world, is it? Not completely

Alex Bullock June 11, 20132:35 am

Actual in engine footage though, unlike Xbox One, unless I’ve forgotten already

Tom June 11, 20132:35 am

I imagine that would be like getting 15 more min in Skyrim…

Tom June 11, 20132:34 am

In an open world title, that isnt too impressive

Alex Bullock June 11, 20132:34 am

Now we are talking about sports, hohoho

Tom June 11, 20132:34 am

And now we are in a boat!

Alex Bullock June 11, 20132:34 am

An extra hour of exclusive gameplay on PS4, that is pretty impressive

Tom June 11, 20132:34 am

Me neither D:

Alex Bullock June 11, 20132:33 am

How did he go bullet time? I can’t see the text

Laura Ash June 11, 20132:33 am

It looks insanely good

Alex Bullock June 11, 20132:33 am

This chase looks a lot better, absolutely

Alex Bullock June 11, 20132:32 am

@KazHiraiCEO: You need to save T-Bone from the enemy, XBONE #PlaystationE3

Tom June 11, 20132:32 am

This is actually quite a nice little gameplay segment!

Alex Bullock June 11, 20132:32 am

Sections like this seem a lot less dynamic and spontaneous than I first imagined. Pick a thing to interact with and interact with it

Tom June 11, 20132:31 am

Just get Destiny on now!

Alex Bullock June 11, 20132:31 am

yeah it seems like a strange way to pad out a big 2 hour reveal

Alex Bullock June 11, 20132:30 am

Another seizure warning

Tom June 11, 20132:30 am

Its not an asset to one console. Its a next gen asset. Let Ubi show it themselves.

Alex Bullock June 11, 20132:29 am

This is exactly how I feel @JimSterling: Kind of burned out on Watch Dogs. One of those games where I’m as confident in it as I’m gonna be. Seeing more won’t change it. #E3 #PS4

Tom June 11, 20132:29 am

Watchdogs just looks gorgeous. You can really see the details when your stream freezes.

Alex Bullock June 11, 20132:29 am

I’m wondering if you drive like a lunatic, will you get spotted and pulled up?

Tom June 11, 20132:28 am

Nice to see driving in Watch Dogs!

Alex Bullock June 11, 20132:28 am

Aveline confirmed for Black Flag though, that should be great. I gave them a bit of flak for not considering a female protagonist for that one

Tom June 11, 20132:28 am

Ah shit 😐

Laura Ash June 11, 20132:27 am

Gameplay of watch dogs.

Alex Bullock June 11, 20132:27 am

When the AC demo lagged out and died, they basically had to run away under cover of darkness

Tom June 11, 20132:26 am

I missed alot

Tom June 11, 20132:26 am

When did we get to Watch Dogs?

Alex Bullock June 11, 20132:26 am

And now Watch Dogs guys are on. Couldn’t just go well could it Sony :(

Alex Bullock June 11, 20132:26 am

And actually died to the extent they’ve had to stop and play the theme music

Alex Bullock June 11, 20132:25 am

It’s not just me, the game froze, three times.

Alex Bullock June 11, 20132:25 am

I’m not sure if it’s just my stream but they had a mid air freeze when jumping onto a ship

Tom June 11, 20132:24 am

I’m having an absolute ball ache with streams right now!

Alex Bullock June 11, 20132:24 am

Okay this looks great

Alex Bullock June 11, 20132:23 am

Two guns, now that’s just not playing fair.

Alex Bullock June 11, 20132:22 am

You’re not alone there @ultrabrilliant: Nooo, show the open seas and exploring. This makes it look like every other AC.

Alex Bullock June 11, 20132:22 am

@JimSterling: Assassin’s Creed IV NPCs confirmed as the supporting cast of Hot Fuzz, apparently. #PS4 #E3

Tom June 11, 20132:21 am

Looks like your usual affair, I’m much more interested in ocean travel and underwater swimming

Alex Bullock June 11, 20132:20 am

Liberation’s protagonist involved in Black Flag? or did he just mention that at random?

Tom June 11, 20132:19 am

HEy Finally Assassins Creed Black Flag gameplay!

Tom June 11, 20132:18 am

I missed anything to do with Final Fantasy XV

Tom June 11, 20132:17 am

Me too :/

Alex Bullock June 11, 20132:17 am

Unfortunately I’ve missed half of that with net problems. Looked nice though, sounded better.

Tom June 11, 20132:17 am

Kingdom Hearts 😀

Tom June 11, 20132:16 am

AMG DISNEY and SQUARE ENIX

Tom June 11, 20132:16 am

Yes it is. I really am sturggling to work out how it links to the current FFXIII story

Alex Bullock June 11, 20132:15 am

ID’D @JimSterling: Fabula Novella Crystalis Numero Humerus Stankmasterson Finalus Fantasus #PS4 #E3

Tom June 11, 20132:15 am

If only Curt hadn’t wussed out and gone to bed!

Alex Bullock June 11, 20132:14 am

I am so not the person to speculate on that

Tom June 11, 20132:14 am

Wait…. is this Final Fantasy Versus XIII ?

Alex Bullock June 11, 20132:13 am

Not much info yet, but we do get a trailer

Tom June 11, 20132:13 am

Square Enix dropping a FInal Fantasy trailer

Alex Bullock June 11, 20132:13 am

Square Enix video message. They need good games more than Sony do

Tom June 11, 20132:11 am

Great news :)

Alex Bullock June 11, 20132:11 am

but they are also making a new one, so this bodes well

Alex Bullock June 11, 20132:11 am

Oddworld remake was already happening but not confirmed for PS4

Laura Ash June 11, 20132:11 am

Enjoying this too much to comment.

Alex Bullock June 11, 20132:11 am

You can tell from the amount of caps

Tom June 11, 20132:11 am

Oh Oddworld remake

Tom June 11, 20132:10 am

Did not expect an Oddworld title!!

Alex Bullock June 11, 20132:10 am

I am loving this indie segment, loving it

Alex Bullock June 11, 20132:10 am

YES ODDWORLD

Tom June 11, 20132:09 am

Secret ponchos? is this where Master Chief was off to?

Alex Bullock June 11, 20132:09 am

NO GIANT ENEMY CRABS. A demon has been exorcised

Tom June 11, 20132:09 am

OH MY FUCK OCTODAD

Tom June 11, 20132:09 am

Scott Pilgrim game devs creating new ip

Alex Bullock June 11, 20132:08 am

Lots of big indie names being bandied about. It’s only fucking Octodad

Tom June 11, 20132:07 am

Sony confirms self-publishing for Indies!

Tom June 11, 20132:07 am

Just like Microsofts conference, quite a lot of 2014 releases

Tom June 11, 20132:07 am

Looks like it is so!

Alex Bullock June 11, 20132:06 am

Do we have another female protagonist for the tally? Maybe several by the looks of things

Tom June 11, 20132:06 am

I can’t recall

Alex Bullock June 11, 20132:06 am

Transistor. This rings a bell, named at the PS4 reveal?

Tom June 11, 20132:06 am

Transistor

Alex Bullock June 11, 20132:05 am

Bastion’s Super Giant on stage!

Alex Bullock June 11, 20132:03 am

It was technically very impressive, I’d concede that much

Tom June 11, 20132:03 am

May have to give the entire thing a watch!

Tom June 11, 20132:02 am

Hahahahahahahaa!

Alex Bullock June 11, 20132:02 am

It’s not a game. It’s a masturbatory David Cage tech demo.

Alex Bullock June 11, 20132:01 am

@geoffkeighley: David Cage wasn’t joking earlier today. 12 minute Quantic Dream PS4 demo now showing at briefing. Not a game they say.

Tom June 11, 20132:01 am

Hey its Mr. detailed face from the PS4 reveal!

Alex Bullock June 11, 20132:01 am

did we know about this one??

Tom June 11, 20132:01 am

Quantic Dream tech demo, very wizardy

Alex Bullock June 11, 20132:01 am

The Dark Sorcerer from Quantic Dream

Tom June 11, 20132:00 am

The power of spellcheck!

Alex Bullock June 11, 20132:00 am

I love that you keep using the accent

Alex Bullock June 11, 20132:00 am

Viva Piñata is based in your heart

Tom June 11, 20131:59 am

IS that where Viva Piñata was based?

Tom June 11, 20131:59 am

;D

Tom June 11, 20131:59 am

Hahah whats a seattle?

Alex Bullock June 11, 20131:59 am

So another fictional city. :)

Alex Bullock June 11, 20131:58 am

People noting that the first two Infamous games were set in fictional cities, and this one is in…Seattle.

Tom June 11, 20131:58 am

here we go, Knack. THis looks to be Sony’s new Ratchet and Clank style game

Tom June 11, 20131:58 am

I only played a little bit of the first, seems quite a lot more character driven story- and NIrvana.

Laura Ash June 11, 20131:57 am

This looks interesting..

Tom June 11, 20131:56 am

is this Drive Club?

Tom June 11, 20131:56 am

YEAH MORE CARS

Tom June 11, 20131:56 am

Killzone Shadowfall does look good

Alex Bullock June 11, 20131:55 am

@leighalexander: IS THIS SERIOUSLY A KING ARTHUR THEMED STEAMPUNK WEREWOLF SHOOTER? SOLD PS4 DAY ONE PURCHASE OK IM DONE

Tom June 11, 20131:54 am

It won’t look this nice, but good to see a new game
“The Order”

Alex Bullock June 11, 20131:54 am

The Order 1886

Alex Bullock June 11, 20131:53 am

These guys ported Okami to the Wii. Just remember that as you watch these people shoot laser guns.

Laura Ash June 11, 20131:53 am

This is all in-engine.

Tom June 11, 20131:53 am

I’m very intrigued

Tom June 11, 20131:52 am

Steampunk alternate Victorian england setting

Alex Bullock June 11, 20131:52 am

It’s set in London!

Alex Bullock June 11, 20131:51 am

Santa Monica, Ready At Dawn, yesyesyes

Tom June 11, 20131:51 am

OH

Tom June 11, 20131:51 am

PS4 exclusive new IP!

Alex Bullock June 11, 20131:51 am

he said brand new IPs, we might be in luck

Tom June 11, 20131:50 am

I love Goatse designs like that, you know whoever created it was laughing so hard while making it and then seeing their creation on screen!

Laura Ash June 11, 20131:50 am

I want to see some games.

Alex Bullock June 11, 20131:50 am

That goatse stage again, for your viewing pleasure.

Tom June 11, 20131:49 am

and then I went back to being bored again.

Alex Bullock June 11, 20131:48 am

Yoshida takes the floor

Tom June 11, 20131:47 am

Cannot unsee!

Tom June 11, 20131:46 am

GOD DAMNIT!

Alex Bullock June 11, 20131:46 am

OH GOD @ultrabrilliant: Goatse stage.

Tom June 11, 20131:46 am

Which came BEFORE the game department

Tom June 11, 20131:46 am

At least Sony already has a section dedicated to film, tv and music unlike Microsoft.

Alex Bullock June 11, 20131:45 am

He has a point, it does have angles.

Alex Bullock June 11, 20131:44 am

@ultrabrilliant: Xbone is a big, square, sexless block. PS4 has angles. ANGLES.

Alex Bullock June 11, 20131:44 am

You missed nothing.

Tom June 11, 20131:44 am

I missed all of that, stream broke.

Alex Bullock June 11, 20131:43 am

haha he said Jack White twice because it was the only thing anyone cheered

Tom June 11, 20131:42 am

I refer back to this image:

Alex Bullock June 11, 20131:42 am

I am an equal opportunities offender. Give me a reason not to hate your machine Sony

Alex Bullock June 11, 20131:42 am

Oh look, Sony are doing that thing everyone railed Microsoft for doing

Alex Bullock June 11, 20131:42 am

Tom confirmed for buying a Wii U

Tom June 11, 20131:42 am

Sony Pictures Entertainment eh?

Tom June 11, 20131:41 am

Great two black generic boxes to go under my TV.

Tom June 11, 20131:41 am

Alex Bullock June 11, 20131:40 am

Has the same part gloss part matte thing going down as the Xbone

Laura Ash June 11, 20131:40 am

It looks awesome!

Tom June 11, 20131:40 am

Also stream crash

Tom June 11, 20131:40 am

Looks like a PS2

Alex Bullock June 11, 20131:40 am

It doesn’t look that bad. Very angular.

Alex Bullock June 11, 20131:40 am

It isn’t.

Tom June 11, 20131:40 am

Here we goo…

Laura Ash June 11, 20131:39 am

PS4 revealed!!!

Alex Bullock June 11, 20131:39 am

They need this to be the sexiest thing ever designed

Tom June 11, 20131:39 am

No, we are getting very impatient mate.

Alex Bullock June 11, 20131:39 am

Sorry Andrew, but you know it’s true.

Tom June 11, 20131:39 am

Bit of Daft Punk to bring him on with!

Alex Bullock June 11, 20131:39 am

it’s House, but not the cool one

Laura Ash June 11, 20131:38 am

Now on to the PS4

Alex Bullock June 11, 20131:38 am

dat Midnight Club 3 DUB

Tom June 11, 20131:38 am

This is PS3

Tom June 11, 20131:38 am

GTAV bundle includes GTAV branded headphones

Tom June 11, 20131:37 am

GTAV exclusive bundle revealed

Alex Bullock June 11, 20131:37 am

@JimSterling: If that 60s Batman skin doesn’t come with an Adam West voiceover, Sony loses #E3 FOREVER. #PS4 #PS3

Alex Bullock June 11, 20131:36 am

It does, and I do have high hopes. The developer interviews at announce were encouraging

Tom June 11, 20131:36 am

No thats my issue as well. Who is voicing the Joker this time?

Alex Bullock June 11, 20131:36 am

Quality dialogue. Shouldn’t judge, but I don’t see how this game can be better than Rocksteady’s

Tom June 11, 20131:36 am

It looks like a Batman Arkham game

Tom June 11, 20131:35 am

Batman Origins trailer

Alex Bullock June 11, 20131:35 am

nananananananana Batman

Alex Bullock June 11, 20131:34 am

I don’t even know any more

Tom June 11, 20131:34 am


Or THIS kind?

Tom June 11, 20131:34 am


This kind of Magic?

Alex Bullock June 11, 20131:33 am

I thought she was magic

Alex Bullock June 11, 20131:33 am

Was anyone else completely baffled by why Ellen Paige was fighting terrorists, by the way

Tom June 11, 20131:33 am

I have seen so many car games today, I jut feel no hype.

Alex Bullock June 11, 20131:33 am

mwhahaha

Alex Bullock June 11, 20131:33 am

Technically Rayman Legends had a female protagonist

Laura Ash June 11, 20131:32 am

Mine’s working perfectly

Tom June 11, 20131:32 am

Gran Turismo on screen

Tom June 11, 20131:32 am

Suddenly my stream is fine haha!

Tom June 11, 20131:31 am

First female protagonist of E3!

Tom June 11, 20131:31 am

I would just like to point out.

Alex Bullock June 11, 20131:31 am

Tom you’ve infected me with your stream curse

Alex Bullock June 11, 20131:29 am

A few game trailers being chucked at us now, not really doing service to any of the games. Puppeteer, Rain and Beyond

Tom June 11, 20131:28 am

I have a PS3 but no money, and Lovefile keep sending me the shite around it

Alex Bullock June 11, 20131:27 am

I might just be annoyed because I don’t have a PS3

Alex Bullock June 11, 20131:27 am

Surely they don’t need to sell The Last Of Us any more, you’d think everyone slapping GOTY on it was enough

Tom June 11, 20131:27 am

Oh good a trailer for a game thats already out! (The Last of Us)

Tom June 11, 20131:26 am

Playstation Nation

Tom June 11, 20131:26 am

At least they are, Jack Tretton is like a non-comedy Jack Dee

Alex Bullock June 11, 20131:26 am

Or better paid

Laura Ash June 11, 20131:25 am

Crowd seem to be more lively.

Alex Bullock June 11, 20131:25 am

Wasn’t most of this already announced or heavily rumoured? Yes, Walking Dead port

Tom June 11, 20131:25 am

Show a trailer please. Walking Dead: 400 Days

Tom June 11, 20131:25 am

Did he just say Walking Dead?

Tom June 11, 20131:25 am

Flower on Vita I can see working well

Tom June 11, 20131:24 am

Tom June 11, 20131:23 am

VITA-VISION?

Laura Ash June 11, 20131:23 am

Desperately trying to revitalise the Vita.

Alex Bullock June 11, 20131:23 am

Big Vita push straight off the bat, expected as much

Tom June 11, 20131:22 am

This bollocks is the reason no one likes your conferences Sony.

Tom June 11, 20131:22 am

I miss Don Mattrick

Tom June 11, 20131:21 am

Tretton is not a hype building guy.

Alex Bullock June 11, 20131:21 am

maybe it’s the insincerity

Alex Bullock June 11, 20131:21 am

He always reminds me of Bill O’Reilly and I have no idea why

Alex Bullock June 11, 20131:20 am

Tretton takes the stage, let’s do this

Laura Ash June 11, 20131:20 am

Maybe a cheeky reveal of the PS4?

Tom June 11, 20131:19 am

There we go! and instant freeze again

Alex Bullock June 11, 20131:19 am

Clips of games we saw last E3 – the dungeon crawler, Watch Dogs etc. wubwubwubwub

Tom June 11, 20131:19 am

I would love to see it

Alex Bullock June 11, 20131:18 am

Classic inspirational gameplay montage

Alex Bullock June 11, 20131:18 am

Strange electronica fuelled light show, commence

Tom June 11, 20131:17 am

And instantly my stream freezes

Tom June 11, 20131:16 am

1 minute to go!

Laura Ash June 11, 20131:15 am

Sony aren’t expected to release a price.

Alex Bullock June 11, 20131:15 am

This is almost bigger for the Vita than the PS4, they have to talk about it. If they said nothing about the PS4 people would still buy it. It’s almost better not to know about it.

Tom June 11, 20131:15 am

Minecraft PS3/4 ?

Alex Bullock June 11, 20131:15 am

I can’t wait to see how they’ll keep it consistently interesting over 2 hours. A fair few journalists and devs hinting at big surprises and new indie games.

Tom June 11, 20131:15 am

I honestly hope they don’t talk numbers or Vita.

Alex Bullock June 11, 20131:14 am

They’ve got the jump on Microsoft twice now. it’s ultimately a big game of Battleships, playing blinds and guessing what people want, but it’s Sony’s to lose.

Laura Ash June 11, 20131:13 am

They do have the advantage, presenting after Microsoft

Tom June 11, 20131:12 am

Haha, I wouldn’t be surprised
“Ohhh, so they don’t want $599” again!

Alex Bullock June 11, 20131:11 am

People joking on Twitter that Sony are editing their presentation to change the price

Tom June 11, 20131:11 am

I was generally expecting Crash to implement into Skylanders in some way after Crash left being a Sony exclusive

Tom June 11, 20131:11 am

Also, don’t make plans to go to bed. The conference is expected to last 2 hours.

Alex Bullock June 11, 20131:10 am

CTR CTR CTR CTR CTR CTR CTR

Alex Bullock June 11, 20131:10 am

There hasn’t been a Crash Bandicoot game for five years, although it’d need an exclusivity deal.

Tom June 11, 20131:10 am

As a huge Microsoft gamer and massive Halo fan.

Please save me Sony.

Tom June 11, 20131:09 am

It may be some sort of CG reveal or tease like Star Wars Battlefront or… Halo 5.

Alex Bullock June 11, 20131:08 am

One interesting one is Naughty Dog – people always thought they would only work on one game at a time, until The Last of Us overlapped with Uncharted. Obviously The Last of Us isn’t even out yet, but they could easily have a new game ready to show.

Tom June 11, 20131:06 am

Jet Set Radio please. Just going to say it until it happens.

Laura Ash June 11, 20131:06 am

5 more minutes to wait before the Sony conference begins!

Alex Bullock June 11, 20131:06 am

I’m still banking on Parappa the Rapper. Any other games they could bring back?

Alex Bullock June 11, 20131:05 am

I’m not sure you can even take Geoff’s fuck-ups seriously

Tom June 11, 20131:03 am

It is known GT Geoff always knows everything before the shows

Tom June 11, 20131:03 am

Uh oh, Geoff slipped “Will you be excited when … I mean if.. Last Guardian is revealed”

Alex Bullock June 11, 20131:02 am

The Last Guardian is the one we’ve been expecting for several years and continually disappointed on. That would be absolutely enormous – SotC is the one game people point to as art.

Tom June 11, 20131:02 am

GameTrailers usually has a lot of love for Xbox so thats quite interesting.

Tom June 11, 20131:02 am

Conference to be 3 minutes late

Alex Bullock June 11, 20131:01 am

GameTrailers say insider sources feel it’s distinctly better than Xbox One. Take that as you will.

Laura Ash June 11, 20131:00 am

I hope it looks good!

Alex Bullock June 11, 20131:00 am

It’s really what they show us today, and what they hold back on for the Sony dev conference post-E3. We’ll definitely see what the PS4 looks like, and surely find out how much it costs. Games are all up in the air apart from Destiny.

Tom June 11, 201312:59 am

PlayStation 4 console said to be “gorgeous” says Sony staff…on Spike GT.coverage

Tom June 11, 201312:59 am

I think this is the one everyone expects to be the saviour or the destroyer (in terms of DRM)

Laura Ash June 11, 201312:56 am

This is the one I’ve been looking forward to

Tom June 11, 201312:55 am

No, in seriousness. We know that there will be some more Killzone 4 shown, along with Bungie’s Destiny (which I am super excited for)

Alex Bullock June 11, 201312:55 am

Seizure warning for photosensitive liveblog viewers

Tom June 11, 201312:54 am

I predict Sony will reveal some games

Alex Bullock June 11, 201312:54 am

Right after I make a cup of tea. Start predicting things Tom

Tom June 11, 201312:54 am

Alex Bullock June 11, 201312:52 am

Last episode of Game of Thrones watched – I am ready to party.

Tom June 11, 201312:45 am

15 minutes to go!!
