    Typical Sony – by the time they start talking about new tactics for 2009, it’ll almost be 2010 already!

    2010 will be the year of PS3!

    I hope this speech’s subtitle will be: “Why do you moan so much Japan? We need to shake shit up!”

    I think there is a major hint in that title.

    If it doesnt show in Cologne, I reckon they’ll show the PS3 Slim and a price cut there.

  13. Syrok

    And a Sony TV with built-in PS3. \o/

    Maybe it’s about addressing the fall of 09, since it will just have started.

    With 3 horus though, you’d have to assume it will be in Cologne… With GT5 (I can dream). And The Last Guardian at TGS… I am just too excited, it’s disgusting.

    “With 3 horus”

    What do Egyptian gods have to do with this?

    #15 5 years ago
  16. Retroid

    Anubis Tactics for ’09! \o/

    #16 5 years ago
  17. Psychotext

    “Bow to your true god!”

    Actually, that sounds like it would fit right into a Sony keynote. :D
