E3 2012: Sony Press Conference (Live Blog)

Sony

Just like I did for the E3 2012 Microsoft Press Conference, I figured I’d live-blog my reactions to the E3 2012 Sony Press Conference. Here we go.

 

Initial Thoughts

I haven’t followed Sony much in recent years. You could attribute it to me being more of an Xbox guy and finding Nintendo to be a wasteland of constantly recycled games sporting mediocre graphics. However, in the past six months or so, I really fell in love with Sony. I upgraded to PlayStation Plus and have reaped tons of benefits from having done so. I got a PlayStation Vita and own a PlayStation Portable. What I am hoping for in this conference is a focus on the Vita, since it has not had many games available for it (at all). It has a ton of potential, but it is being wasted, and I want to see it exploited instead. I want more cross-platform games (ie, ones I can play on both the PS3 and the Vita). I also want to see what the PS3 itself has in store. It’s home to great indie games and it also will be getting Final Fantasy XIV late this year, and I hope to see that at least mentioned. Overall, I hope for great Vita announcements and some good PS3 announcements as well. I know nothing beyond this of what is to come. So let’s find out…

Final Thoughts

Well this was a lot of fun. To be honest, I was wowed and loving every bit of this conference up until the PS Move stuff chimed in. I feel like, for me, the presentation lost a bit of steam there. As innovative as Wonderbook is, it’s not really something that excites me. Still, I really do like the fact that game companies are willing to try all kinds of random ventures, just in case one sticks and becomes the hot new commodity. Will it be Wonderbook? I doubt it, but I’ve been wrong before. The last part of the conference that showcased the new God of War and The Last of Us seemed to do really well with the audience, and I’m sure fans of those games/genres will eat those games up, regardless of my own personal take on each of them.

Overall, I have to say that I think the Sony press conference was better than Microsoft’s, as I easily was more excited about the future from Sony than that of Microsoft altogether.
