So here we go again. Sony has announce its new console with more of the same.; trailers for games that will probably never come out and killzone. I would not have started with a trailer of a game that looks like every other FPS shooter on the market for the last 5 years. The shadows look impressive and the lighting is off the chain but every thing else is the same shoot.shoot and throw grenade, corridors and terrorism.

The only thing that really impressed me was the demo of Watch Dogs, has been seen but still consists of the most innovative gameplay so far. Its hard to tell what percentage of this game is just quicktime events but the environment and pedestrians are the best I have seen in any game.
The new controller is more of the same - no need to change it really. It has advanced rumble. The touchpad may be useful for throwing grenades but little else. It has a headphone jack which is good but kinda pointless with bluetooth being available everywhere. Pointless share button - you could always press start or the playstation button.


The rest of the presentation was pretty much full of random demos of random pretty stuff. The whole conference is best summarized below;
My guess is 700 dollars at launch.

  1. It does not have reverse compatability, which makes it USELESS.
