    Lets hope this one has a bit more charisma than the E3 effort.
    Lets face it, the contents of the conference will be leaked all over the media long before the conference even begins so why not just spend 10 minutes confirming all the recent leaks and save us the pain.

    There was of Liepzig, as far as I remeber.

    Oh no, wait, I downloaded it from the PS store. Glad David Reeves is gone. I can imagine him collecting used womens underwear.

    ANYWAY. The fact that there’s a Sony conference this long, means there will be lots oof coverage. Shit! E3 at Cologne. Love two E3′s per year.

    Proabably no Last Guardian news :/

    But maybe there will be. Or maybe it will all be slim news.

    I bet they give the PSP at least an hour of that, btw. Don’t forget they’re relaunching that too.

    They’ve probably been saving up all their graphs and charts for this one. I’d imagine there’ll be at least an hour of sales numbers, projections and talk of demographics.

    Other than that I’m expecting the official reveal of the slim PS3, a price cut for the original model, talk of new services on the horizon — namely the video store for Europe — and one or two surprises that’ll end up being leaked before the show, such as a former 360 exclusive finding it’s way to PS3. The PSP will get a lot of stage time, too, and rightly so for once.

    They are probably going to explain to everyone what Z-vertices and G-bufffers are. ^.^

    I hope you bring a long a few batteries for your laptop. ;)

    I’m sitting here writing a list of things to buy.

    #1 – A laptop with a proper battery.

    The battery in my MacBook lasts about 5 hours while connected to wireless internet. ;)

    It should be good hopefully someone will have live coverage I think David Jaffe will announce the rumored new Twisted Metal title I heard he was announcing his project soon and that was just a couple of days ago! Maybe the slim too but I hope not I hope that will be revealed at the Tokyo Game Show! and maybe something on a new Syphon Filter or Angels Rings(AKA rumored Legend of Dragoon 2), but then again they will need stuff for next years E3!

    Yeah, get a Macbook Pat, and especially now they’ve got longer batteries.

    Best purchase you’ll ever make, guaranteed.

    This sounds like an evening soiree. I think it’ll be the press conference and then schmoozing time with drinks and stuff. That’s why it’s 3 hours, not cos the conference itself will be that long.

    If you hear of my death afterwards, be that of exhaustion or suicides, you’ll know why.

    If I get to do it that is. :|

    Anyways, all I wanna hear from that is a price-cut (even if I already have one), PS3 slim, Gran Turismo 5, Twisted Metal PS3, £200 price (at least) for PSP Go and a possible revival of Eight Days (I pray for it to come back each event ala E3, Germany or Tokyo XD)

    I do agree the Macbook is the best decision i have made in my life! Pat you have a month to get one :P

    Hmm. I think I’d have Mac panic. I’m so used to Windows. Probably end up turning it off by accident, or something.

    Five hours is great, though…

    #26 5 years ago
  27. Jonathan Cullen

    I actually thought of an idea.

    Instead of doing a livetext, try doing a livestream instead Pat. It’ll be a while before GameSpot get the conference live online anyways.

    Seriously, once you start using OS X, you’ll wonder how you ever used Windows.

    I can’t use Windows now…it’s so amateurish and slow compared to OS X.

    There’s loads of laptops with that sort of battery life… you just need to stop taking your gaming spec one away with you. :D

    Oh yeah, do a Live stream..

    The hits will be unparalleled. Or atleast I’ll hit it 5 or 6 times xD

    They better be spending a few minutes on the announcement of PSN cards for Europe.

    Awesome. 13 days.
