Sony GDC 2010 Press Conference
The above is the stream for the Sony Press Conference that is 1.5 hrs away. I will probably be blasting twitter with updates. But feel free to chat in here with what we see. So what is everyone expecting?
4:42 pm – Event over. Now to see what the gaming press thinks of it. How does this compare to a Wii Remote.
4:41 pm – 3D gaming news coming this summer. All the lucky people there get to try the Move out.
4:40 pm – Peter Dille back out to wrap things up it looks like. “Virtually all 3rd party devs are behind Move”.
4:39 pm – I hope the “subcontroller” gets a new name.
4:36 pm – The “nunchuk” is called the subcontroller. SOCOM 4 being shown.
4:34 pm – Motion Fighters up next. This one looks promising. Wii Sports Boxing, but with real HD graphics and more dirty street fight moves. Finishing moves too he says. Spinning backfist he pulled off was nice.
4:33 pm – I really hate this overplayed Fireflies song. EyePet stuff is just more games to play with the Pet. Looks like it is coming to North America this holiday season.
4:32 pm – EyePet up next. LBP demo had one player controlling things in the environment and the other player moving SackBoy.
4:29 pm – LBP Move demo up next.
