Blimey where do we begin?

Read the full round up of Sony’s conference after the break.

Kevin Butler was on stage, David Jaffe came on stage and perhaps the biggest surprise of all, was the appearance of Gabe Newell from Valve.

In fact, you’re lucky you got this round-up so quickly because we all had to go have a lay down in a dark corner to recover from this press conference of rather epic proportions.

So let’s start at the beginning.

First up from Sony was news that Killzone 3 will be releasing in February next year, with full Move and 3D support. Not bad for starters, however much more was to come.

It was probably one of the funniest things ever seen at E3, with pants being wet with laughter all over VG247 towers.

After that madness, came news that 40 developers and publishers are working on Move, 70 PSP titles are coming to PSP by the end of the year and also news that Sony are to release PlayStation +, a brand new subscription service.

The Megaton’s were still to come though, and when Sony announced exclusive content for EA titles Medal of Honor and Dead Space 2, as well as exclusive content for Assassin’s Creed: Brotherhood and Mafia II  – the crowd when into rapture mode.

Once everyone calmed down, they were at least safe in the knowledge that Sony couldn’t top what had just happened.

Oh how wrong they were.

Out steps Gabe Newell to introduce Portal 2 complete with Steamworks on PS3, followed soon after by David Jaffe to announce a new Twisted Metal.

Oh – and Gran Turismo 5 was finally dated in the US for November 2. Finally.

Here is the full round up:
