Plethora Of Sony Related News In Here – The Full Quencher

by Ernice Gilbert on September 16th, 2010, under Hot, News, Sony

Sony’s presser’s in full swing folks, and we won’t miss a beat. Below the break, a ton of PlayStation related news are yours for the reading, drinking and quenching.

The notables we’ll give separate posts, let’s dance.

First, the giant started out with some sales figures, boasting of how the PS3′s sold 38 million hardware units and 310 million games, and then a brief presentation of PSP and Move followed.

Move is an extremely important part of the company’s strategy and at the presser, an armada of Move titles were on display. They include Start the Party, The Shoot, Sports Champions, Tumble, TV Superstars, The Fight, Heroes on the Move, High Velocity Bowling, Echochrome II, Tiger Woods, Resident Evil 5, Virtua Tennis 4, Time Crisis, Killzone 3, LittleBigPlanet 2 and Ape Escape.

35 games are being made for Move by 13 companies, with Sony releasing the motion control device in Japan on October 21st, with a slogan that says “Let’s Play, Move”.

3D’s also big on Sony’s list, and the company made a show of displaying some of the big name titles with said functionality.

The E3 MGS: Rising trailer was also shown in 3D, as was footage of Disaster 4: Summer Memories and Polyphony’s GT5. There was also a 3D version of Final Fantasy XIV, and Everybody’s Golf. To complete its 3D full circle, Sony announced that Firmware 3.5 would hit PS3 with 3D Blu-ray support on September 21st, 2010.

On the hardware side of things, Sony said a 320Gb PS3 would release in Japan on October 21st, 2010.

There was a special edition PSP to compliment a third Monster Hunter title to be released on December 1st.

The Quencher Continues: Software

Capcom, Square-Enix and Level 5 were all present at Sony’s presser to show off their offerings.

Capcom’s been showing off Asura’s Wrath and the Devil May Cry reboot, while Square-Enix released a trailer for PSP sequel The 3rd Birthday, but refused to allow it to be seen on the conference’s live video stream.

Following the disappointment displayed by fans today concerning the new Devil May Cry trailer, Inafune said there was no “taboo” in working on DMC and that Capcom and Ninja Theory will do whatever’s needed to make it work.

Castlevania: Lords of Shadow was also on display, with Konami describing it as a “rebirth” of the franchise. A terror-filled trailer then followed. (We’ll post that up once it goes viral).

Straightway following Konami’s Castlevania was Sega’s Yakuza 4. The game’s taken a drastic turn to the survival horror genre, but I must admit it looks thrilling. Here’s to hoping to turns out great.


Following the showing of Yakuza was a brief trailer of Team ICO’s HD remake of Shadow of the Colossus and ICO, however no date was given, only “coming soon”.

Then one of the big moments of the show: a brand new trailer of the Last Guardian was unveiled and in the most intricate mathematics, it equals beautiful. We’ll bring the trailer live as soon as it’s available.

Ace Combat: Assault Horizon saw an unveiling and brand new trailer that’s rather mental. No date for the game has been set.

Up next came From Software showing something called Project Dark. However we couldn’t see nothing, as the stream was apparently blocked – don’t know why.

Now, GT5. A brilliant new trailer was released, with cars dragging, speeding and disappearing into the night. Next Polyphony Digital boss, Yamauchi Kazunori is seen talking to his development team, seemingly talking GT5 related issues. The trailer’s something for the books.

He then took the stage to chat for a bit.

Following Kazunori’s speech, more gameplay footage was shown, this time with weather effects on display where the player’s seen driving through rain and snow and night.

Koei Tecmo came out next, showing off a video compilation of the last ten years’ worth of Dynasty Warriors games then it announced Dynasty Warriors 6 as a PS3 exclusive. More info will be released next month.

    see people now THIS is how we do a gaming conference!
    heaps of news on wanted highly anticipated games, and a few unannounced titles, none of that ranting crap from E3!
    so far this year TGS has been my favorite gaming convention, E3 was crap, gamescom was ok, pax was sweet but only because of DNF, TGS is really the only one that had shocking announcements and lots of them!
