While watching the Sony Press conference, it was a complete snorefest until the last 15 minutes. Ken Levine gave us an early look at the NGP before finally Kaz stepped out and let us know the name would be call PS Vita. Then Sony decided to punch Nintendo’s 3DS in its face by announcing the same price for the PS Vita when it releases this holiday.


  • Uncharted 3 Live Demo
  • Uncharted Golden Abyss
  • Mod Nation Vita –The track builder appears to be very easy to use. The presenter used his finger to draw out a simple track with his finger and then edited it to add a jump.
  • LittleBigPlanet Vita – Yes for sharing costumes and content between the ps3 version of LittleBigPlanet 2.
  • $249.99 for the Wifi Playstation Vita – It’s an obvious marketing attack on Nintendo. Well done Sony, you love to lose money on hardware to gain a market share.
  • Cole in Tekken X Street Fighter – the image of Cole mashed between the two universes was awesome. The only time I honestly laughed.
  • Unnamed Create Your Fighter game on Vita. It seemed like you could take a screenshot of yourself and then choose the fighting style type.


  • Resistance 3 – The three minutes of gameplay felt extremely bland to me. The game engine is back to a grayscale look with yellow accents. The visual theme and gun movements look very similar to Killzone 3.

2K Basketball Move with Kobe Bryant - Kobe got his ego hurt by being booed and a snarky comment. Then he says he is going to show us “how it’s done”. Kobe ends up directly turning over the ball to the other team and takes about two minutes before he scores with the Lakers. What a waste of a celebrity appearance when Kobe seems to not be familiar with the Move controller and the game.

The best part of the Sony conference was Vita gameplay and price information. The most exciting trailer was for Sly Cooper 4 1 minute in when we think it's Sly Cooper being the thief when it is really "I'm not your cheesy-macaroni Sly Cooper, you got DIMIIIIITRIIIIIIII!" What an unexpected surprise which made me laugh out loud and I don't even play the Sly Cooper series.
