Conversation of Sony Live Press Coverage E3 2011

D O'Dubhslaine 7:06 pm
I wonder if Sony is going to give us a massive apology
for the PSN super hacked

J Wellington Rommefeller 7:07 pm
i have no idea
the press conference won't even start

D O'Dubhslaine 7:07 pm
it hasn't started yet

D O'Dubhslaine 7:08 pm
just some beatnik hippies talking outside

D O'Dubhslaine 7:09 pm
shut up hippies! I don't care what you think, your minds are already ridden with poisons

J Wellington Rommefeller 7:10 pm
I grow tired of this boorish preshow

D O'Dubhslaine 7:10 pm
no kidding my friend
I could've cleaned my rifle by now
...with a napkin

J Wellington Rommefeller 7:11 pm

D O'Dubhslaine 7:11 pm
while writing an opera

J Wellington Rommefeller 7:11 pm
in a rainstorm

D O'Dubhslaine 7:12 pm
covered in honey

J Wellington Rommefeller 7:12 pm
Yes! Cut to the actual event in mid sentence
Classy work, Sony

D O'Dubhslaine 7:12 pm
especially to watch a dimly lit audience
and ONLY a dimly lit audience
so what do you think about this game J?

J Wellington Rommefeller 7:13 pm
this game is Darkheads

D O'Dubhslaine 7:14 pm
Darkheads: The Returns of Darkpies
I really need a pie...
also Sony better not spend half the conference talking about the new handheld and how innovative it is

J Wellington Rommefeller 7:16 pm
I'm watching it on G4 TV

D O'Dubhslaine 7:16 pm
as am I
I got sick of my streams crashing

J Wellington Rommefeller 7:16 pm
It's quiet
....too quiet
then the raptors run in

D O'Dubhslaine 7:16 pm
with Samuel Jackson riding the Alpha Raptor

J Wellington Rommefeller 7:16 pm
starting off with some very unnecessary techno

D O'Dubhslaine 7:17 pm
Good to Sony form, it's a collage of things to come

J Wellington Rommefeller 7:17 pm
I believe they call this Dubstep

D O'Dubhslaine 7:17 pm
Because all games directly released off a movie are wonderful

D O'Dubhslaine 7:18 pm
I hope to see an grand announcement much like last year's Twisted Metal

J Wellington Rommefeller 7:18 pm
Some of these games you have to wonder if Sony didn't just put together footage from games coming out this year, good or bad

D O'Dubhslaine 7:18 pm
unexpected and spine tingly
they were running of fun things to talk about, so just put footage of literally everything they have
Oh maybe Final Fantasy 84: No We Aren't Giving Up will be announced!

J Wellington Rommefeller 7:20 pm
As long as Nathan Drake is doing something fun, I don't care

D O'Dubhslaine 7:20 pm
this is just procrastinating

J Wellington Rommefeller 7:21 pm
Jack's looking beefy

D O'Dubhslaine 7:22 pm
oh here we go

J Wellington Rommefeller 7:22 pm
Haha, outage

D O'Dubhslaine 7:22 pm
also known as "we were super hacked because we're dumb"

D O'Dubhslaine 7:24 pm
so we're 23 minutes into this spotlight
we've only heard about this "outage"

J Wellington Rommefeller 7:24 pm
They seem a little sorry

D O'Dubhslaine 7:24 pm
at least Mr. Stocky CEO came out to say it himself
instead of just saying "SORRY FELLOWS" in big letters in their video collage
are you really bragging about Netflix on the PS3?
it's great, sure

J Wellington Rommefeller 7:25 pm
Yes, he is

D O'Dubhslaine 7:25 pm
get to the games already!

J Wellington Rommefeller 7:25 pm
He's bragging about something that's on all major consoles

D O'Dubhslaine 7:25 pm
you small headed lilypad!

J Wellington Rommefeller 7:26 pm
Yes! Thank you!

D O'Dubhslaine 7:27 pm
I need to play Uncharted

J Wellington Rommefeller 7:27 pm
It's very good

D O'Dubhslaine 7:27 pm
and doesn't even need sound

J Wellington Rommefeller 7:28 pm
The shifting around on the ship is very nicely done

D O'Dubhslaine 7:30 pm
it is
I'm impressed, it was just the right amount of reaction to maintain balance

J Wellington Rommefeller 7:30 pm
Look out Drake, you're on a ship. everyone knows ships can't be trusted

D O'Dubhslaine 7:30 pm
At least it's spacious
compared to Frigate in Goldeneye

J Wellington Rommefeller 7:31 pm
Haha, yes

D O'Dubhslaine 7:31 pm
...that's twice I've referenced that game today, I apparently need to play it again soon

J Wellington Rommefeller 7:31 pm
I suppose so!
Nice grenade move!

D O'Dubhslaine 7:32 pm
did he just take the pin off the grenade attached to that guy's belt?

J Wellington Rommefeller 7:32 pm
Yes he did

D O'Dubhslaine 7:32 pm
I should remember that one...

J Wellington Rommefeller 7:32 pm
Don't drown, Drake!

D O'Dubhslaine 7:33 pm
it's ok, he can hold his breath for 9 minutes flat

J Wellington Rommefeller 7:33 pm
Very enticing! Great first game offering

D O'Dubhslaine 7:34 pm

J Wellington Rommefeller 7:34 pm

D O'Dubhslaine 7:34 pm
are they really advertising getting access to full multiplayer early by going to Subway?

J Wellington Rommefeller 7:34 pm
So you can play the entire multiplayer game by going to subway
Yes, they are

D O'Dubhslaine 7:35 pm
I like a good submarine sandwich as much as any other lad or lass
but wow

J Wellington Rommefeller 7:36 pm
This trailer is pretty standard

D O'Dubhslaine 7:36 pm
This trailer looks like one you'd see in a movie

J Wellington Rommefeller 7:36 pm
I'm no less excited about playing this game, but by the same token, I'm not more excited either
Haha, Uncharted has some great humor
Resistance has always been an underwhelming shooter, but I've played both of them

D O'Dubhslaine 7:38 pm
I didn't because I've heard they're underwhelming

J Wellington Rommefeller 7:40 pm
Wow, he's not very good is he?

D O'Dubhslaine 7:40 pm
he's terrible

D O'Dubhslaine 7:40 pm
aparently the best way to avoid enemy fire is to take two steps back and one step to the left
what, does he think he's a chess piece?

J Wellington Rommefeller 7:41 pm
Do you have evidence proving he's not
See, it looks like Halo, but worse
Not my cup of tea
or brandy

D O'Dubhslaine 7:42 pm
not my cup
oh no
don't do this Sony

D O'Dubhslaine 7:42 pm
don't talk about 3D games

J Wellington Rommefeller 7:43 pm
Oh, remaster collections of the GoW games on PSP and the ICO team games
And they'll be in 3D
That's interesting
I'm interested in the ICO pack

D O'Dubhslaine 7:44 pm
you do realize the only remaster that anyone cares about it Final Fantasy VII

J Wellington Rommefeller 7:44 pm
I'm still not convinced about 3D

D O'Dubhslaine 7:44 pm
I'll be convinced for 3D

J Wellington Rommefeller 7:44 pm
A Playstation TV?
That's the silliest thing I've ever heard
and it's only 24"

D O'Dubhslaine 7:44 pm
it's a 24 inch TV with the Sony brand

D O'Dubhslaine 7:44 pm
Ok that's actually clever

J Wellington Rommefeller 7:44 pm
That feature sounds good

D O'Dubhslaine 7:45 pm
the glasses showing only your game in split screen
so it's not actually split screen

J Wellington Rommefeller 7:45 pm
You'll need that if it's only 24"

D O'Dubhslaine 7:45 pm
that's...really clever

J Wellington Rommefeller 7:45 pm
That's not a bad price

D O'Dubhslaine 7:46 pm
for a small TV, sure

J Wellington Rommefeller 7:46 pm
I'm getting good vibes from their prices

D O'Dubhslaine 7:46 pm
my computer monitor is 23inches and cost 150 dollars
oh here we go, Playstation Move

J Wellington Rommefeller 7:46 pm
It doesn't have a TV tuner in it though :-P

J Wellington Rommefeller 7:46 pm
They're trying to push Move so hard

D O'Dubhslaine 7:47 pm
and to do so this year, they're relying on a basketball game
this'll be successful

J Wellington Rommefeller 7:47 pm
Of course it will be
Okay, that's a point and click game.
This is the worst use of the Move I've ever seen

D O'Dubhslaine 7:48 pm
even the announcers sound bored talking about it
I love the PS3 but my God they need to let go of this Move

J Wellington Rommefeller 7:49 pm
It's Kobe!

D O'Dubhslaine 7:49 pm

J Wellington Rommefeller 7:49 pm
He's gonna screw everything up

D O'Dubhslaine 7:49 pm
Even I know who Kobe is

J Wellington Rommefeller 7:49 pm
The Lake show?

D O'Dubhslaine 7:49 pm
I want him to accidentally throw the Move remote

J Wellington Rommefeller 7:49 pm
Really Kobe?

D O'Dubhslaine 7:50 pm
he's not moving the remote
or he is barely
he's just standing there like a bloody goon and looking bored
"This game is..c-crazy..."

J Wellington Rommefeller 7:50 pm
Kobe is talking trash and not playin correctly

D O'Dubhslaine 7:50 pm
this is just pathetic

J Wellington Rommefeller 7:51 pm
tell another joke Kobe

J Wellington Rommefeller 7:52 pm
October 4th
If I cared, I'd write that down

D O'Dubhslaine 7:52 pm
remember that date
so we can promptly sleep in and drink brandy all day

J Wellington Rommefeller 7:52 pm
Medieval Moves
I think it's cool that almost everything is in 3D

J Wellington Rommefeller 7:54 pm
Why aren't they going to the screen?
Much better
I'm glad the graphics are cartoony
That makes me take the game less seriously

D O'Dubhslaine 7:54 pm
I can't take it at all
it just looks bloody boring
absolutely boring

J Wellington Rommefeller 7:56 pm
These puzzles are very simple
This is definitely not a game for hardcore gamers

D O'Dubhslaine 7:56 pm

J Wellington Rommefeller 7:58 pm
Again, the move should be ditched
I'm excited about Infamous 2, but not on the Move

D O'Dubhslaine 7:58 pm
is it a move exclusive?

J Wellington Rommefeller 7:59 pm
No, it's just like a kinect game, you can play it either way
But the game is notorious
INFAMOUS you may say

D O'Dubhslaine 7:59 pm

J Wellington Rommefeller 7:59 pm
for being very over the top about the right vs. wrong thing being insanely overdone

D O'Dubhslaine 7:59 pm

J Wellington Rommefeller 8:00 pm
Ah yes, gamer created missions and levels
Nobody doesn't like Little Big Planet

J Wellington Rommefeller 8:01 pm
I haven't heard much about StarHawk
This may be interesting

D O'Dubhslaine 8:01 pm
I'm intrigued

J Wellington Rommefeller 8:02 pm
Seems interesting
I'm just interested enough to keep investigating it

J Wellington Rommefeller 8:03 pm
Is this Sly Cooper?

D O'Dubhslaine 8:03 pm
of course it is J
you silly man
ack brb dude, ma's calling m
uh, write up Sly real quick

J Wellington Rommefeller 8:05 pm
Sly Cooper Thieves in Time looks to be a faithful follow up to the series' previous works. Sly's new adventure will be out in 2012

J Wellington Rommefeller 8:05 pm
Hilmar is from Iceland
I can't tell what he's saying
Is it Durst?
Oh, Dust
Yes, Dust is an FPS that's direcly connected to EVE Online

D O'Dubhslaine 8:06 pm

J Wellington Rommefeller 8:06 pm
And apparantly the first game to do that

D O'Dubhslaine 8:06 pm
NOW it makes sense

J Wellington Rommefeller 8:06 pm
One Universe, One War
Very interesting concept, though that was unveiled before E3

J Wellington Rommefeller 8:08 pm
This part of the trailer reminds me of the Ghost Recon Future Soldier trailer

D O'Dubhslaine 8:08 pm
except with nebulas instead of pistols

J Wellington Rommefeller 8:09 pm
Dust looks impressive!
Dust 514 is its official title

D O'Dubhslaine 8:09 pm
I can't wait to try it on the Move
cause the move is great
Playstation Move is amazing

J Wellington Rommefeller 8:09 pm
and it's a PSN exclusive

D O'Dubhslaine 8:09 pm
Playstation Move

J Wellington Rommefeller 8:09 pm

D O'Dubhslaine 8:09 pm

J Wellington Rommefeller 8:09 pm
Bioshock Infinite!

J Wellington Rommefeller 8:10 pm
Everytime I see something about this game, I get even more excited
If there's an excitement plateau, I haven't reached it yet
Exclusively from in game footage, nice!
Mr. Levine, hello!
Uh oh
Levine is copying Gabe Newell
He's apologizing and then saying that it will actually be good

D O'Dubhslaine 8:12 pm
and lying to everyone about a game never coming?

J Wellington Rommefeller 8:12 pm
Haha, no, not that one

J Wellington Rommefeller 8:14 pm
Uh oh, I sense a big announcement
Yes! The new PSP
A new Bioshock game will be coming to NGP
That's wonderful

D O'Dubhslaine 8:15 pm
are you planning to get an NGP?

J Wellington Rommefeller 8:15 pm
Oh my yes
Saints Row seems like a silly GTA, so I've never played it

D O'Dubhslaine 8:16 pm
a Star Trek game?!

J Wellington Rommefeller 8:16 pm
A new Star Trek game along with a movie

D O'Dubhslaine 8:16 pm
what is this ballhoo?

J Wellington Rommefeller 8:17 pm
Hmm, the graphics don't seem up to snuff
Oh wait, perhaps I spoke too soon

D O'Dubhslaine 8:17 pm
yes you did
that looks simply appetizing

J Wellington Rommefeller 8:17 pm
I regreat that sentence

D O'Dubhslaine 8:17 pm
and yes
I will eat it

J Wellington Rommefeller 8:18 pm

D O'Dubhslaine 8:18 pm
I will buy the game, slather the disc in 10 sauces
and eat it

J Wellington Rommefeller 8:18 pm
Now we're into games that are multiplatform

J Wellington Rommefeller 8:19 pm
I suppose they needed to get this out of the way before their NGP announcements
Battlefield 3 plus Battlefield 1943?
Not bad
I'll still buy it on PC

D O'Dubhslaine 8:20 pm
I still have 1943
so no need to get hte bundle

J Wellington Rommefeller 8:20 pm
Kazuo Hirai
He's a great guy

D O'Dubhslaine 8:20 pm
he looks sexy
I don't regret saying that either, he is a handsome gentleman

J Wellington Rommefeller 8:20 pm
Hah, a tie joke
Finally, getting to NGP

D O'Dubhslaine 8:21 pm
I'm not covering the NGP in the highlights
cause I don't care :-P

J Wellington Rommefeller 8:21 pm
You're mean
I'll do it
Since you won't do your job

D O'Dubhslaine 8:22 pm
Oh calm down J
I'm just twisting your pantalones in a knot

J Wellington Rommefeller 8:22 pm
Oh you
I should have known
Playstation Suite is essentially Playstation phones and tablets

J Wellington Rommefeller 8:24 pm
He's essentially saying that the NGP is going to be wonderful
Playstation Vita
It's not like we didn't know that yesterday

D O'Dubhslaine 8:24 pm
Vita means life
and life
is Vita

J Wellington Rommefeller 8:25 pm
All of this hardware talk was covered earlier

D O'Dubhslaine 8:25 pm
but we're looking at it with pictures now!

J Wellington Rommefeller 8:26 pm

J Wellington Rommefeller 8:26 pm
Why would you choose AT&T?!

D O'Dubhslaine 8:26 pm

J Wellington Rommefeller 8:26 pm
They are the worst service provider in the USA!

D O'Dubhslaine 8:26 pm
see why I don't care about NGP? I knew they'd screw up somehow

J Wellington Rommefeller 8:27 pm
I'll still buy one

J Wellington Rommefeller 8:29 pm
More Uncharted, just what I've always wanted
The graphics are amazing for a handheld console
and the two thumbsticks look very necessary

D O'Dubhslaine 8:31 pm
but it's a 5inch screen!
that's so tiny!
and the device looks so fragile

D O'Dubhslaine 8:31 pm
I could drop it and it'd completely shatter

J Wellington Rommefeller 8:32 pm
Sounds like you need smaller hands, old boy!

D O'Dubhslaine 8:32 pm
that's not something to brag about chap ;-)
I have a man's hands
not the hands of a Barnum and Bailey circus midget

J Wellington Rommefeller 8:33 pm
Circus little people, Colonel

D O'Dubhslaine 8:34 pm
I don't care J
like the NGP
I just don't give a rat's behind

J Wellington Rommefeller 8:34 pm
Social action RPG?
Having not seen Ruin, it seems exciting already
But I'm reserving judgement

D O'Dubhslaine 8:36 pm
You'll be the only one as you'll be one in about 20 in a thirty mile radius of your location to buy this handheld
no I'm not letting this go my friend ;-)

J Wellington Rommefeller 8:36 pm
You'll be eating those words next year, my friend
I like the idea of fighting through friends' dungeons to get to beat them
Oh wow, cloud save, then PS3 game

J Wellington Rommefeller 8:38 pm
If it's a good game, that's a killer feature

D O'Dubhslaine 8:38 pm
only if the game supports it
which, I'm sure, about 3 will

J Wellington Rommefeller 8:39 pm
Probably to start with

D O'Dubhslaine 8:39 pm
I'm waiting for it the Vita's awesome 3D capabilities too :-P

D O'Dubhslaine 8:42 pm

J Wellington Rommefeller 8:43 pm
Hah, sorry, Modnation Racers looked fun
The only thing I'm worried about is the load time
He accidentally called it a crap platform
I should start submitting my resume for his job

D O'Dubhslaine 8:44 pm
I wouldn't
then you wouldn't be attributed to the device

J Wellington Rommefeller 8:45 pm
Please tell me there will be Little Big Planet news
Oh yes!
Oh! neat functionality

D O'Dubhslaine 8:46 pm
is this full on LIttle Big Planet 2?
or just a Vita version?

J Wellington Rommefeller 8:46 pm
I'm not sure
Could be full

D O'Dubhslaine 8:46 pm
I meant LIttle Big Planet 3

J Wellington Rommefeller 8:46 pm
Ahaha! they made legs out of hair
I love Little Big Planet
Little Big Planet Fingerprint

D O'Dubhslaine 8:47 pm
So apparently it's LIttle Big Planet *fingerprint*

J Wellington Rommefeller 8:47 pm
Please announce the price and release date

D O'Dubhslaine 8:48 pm
Street Fighter/ Tekken eh?
oh this should be interesting

J Wellington Rommefeller 8:48 pm
Oh yes!
This looks fun
I'm not a fighting game guy, but it looks cool
Oh okay, whew! Translator in the room

J Wellington Rommefeller 8:49 pm
Yes, it's okay people
you can cheer

D O'Dubhslaine 8:49 pm
NO! Don't!
you know saying it'll be on the Vita will be the death of it!

J Wellington Rommefeller 8:50 pm
Cole's in this

D O'Dubhslaine 8:51 pm
it looks choppy

J Wellington Rommefeller 8:51 pm
Oh my, his arms are weird
Yeah, parts seem a little slow

D O'Dubhslaine 8:52 pm
here's a thought

J Wellington Rommefeller 8:52 pm
I hope it improves before release

D O'Dubhslaine 8:52 pm
is only one letter away from Vista

J Wellington Rommefeller 8:52 pm
At least the graphics look great

D O'Dubhslaine 8:52 pm
let's talk success with Vista

J Wellington Rommefeller 8:53 pm
Vita is also one letter away from Via
As in
Your mine being blown via the Vita :-P

D O'Dubhslaine 8:53 pm
that's what my mines are supposed to do
you silly man

J Wellington Rommefeller 8:53 pm
my fingers will not listen to me

D O'Dubhslaine 8:54 pm
sorry old chap, too slow this time

J Wellington Rommefeller 8:55 pm
Obviously, they don't have very many big name titles

D O'Dubhslaine 8:55 pm
what gave it away?
the incredibly action of the billiard game?
or the mind-knumbing excitement of hand held tennis gaming?

J Wellington Rommefeller 8:56 pm
Holiday season 2011 for Vita!

D O'Dubhslaine 8:56 pm
yeah I'll cut that too

J Wellington Rommefeller 8:56 pm
Wifi only model

J Wellington Rommefeller 8:57 pm
250! same price as 3DS

D O'Dubhslaine 8:57 pm

J Wellington Rommefeller 8:57 pm
Only 50 bucks more for 3G?

D O'Dubhslaine 8:57 pm
don't have one of those either ;-)

J Wellington Rommefeller 8:57 pm
That's incredible!
That's true
Now I'm excited. The price is competitive with Nintendo's next generation device
You know what that means

D O'Dubhslaine 8:58 pm
they'll still undersell?

J Wellington Rommefeller 8:58 pm
This generation of handheld gaming devices is going to be incredibly interesting
You're so negative about this console and I don't know why

D O'Dubhslaine 8:58 pm
yes, that I can agree on

D O'Dubhslaine 8:59 pm
I just feel the Vita is going to be like the Kinect and Move
it's overhyped and not really impressive

J Wellington Rommefeller 9:00 pm
I can see where you're coming from, but it's an entire console with graphics almost as good as a PS3 for the same price as a 3DS

D O'Dubhslaine 9:00 pm
that I almost know they won't push the limits of
just hope it sells and get a few spin-off games

J Wellington Rommefeller 9:01 pm
I can see that, yes
However, I firmly believe Vita will get the most momentum behind it

D O'Dubhslaine 9:02 pm
I, sir, do hope you prove me wrong
I like your optimism

J Wellington Rommefeller 9:03 pm
I like where Playstation is going with its new console

J Wellington Rommefeller 9:03 pm
I'm calling Sony as the winner of E3 today

D O'Dubhslaine 9:03 pm
Today? Yes

J Wellington Rommefeller 9:03 pm
Nintendo has a chance to usurp Sony

D O'Dubhslaine 9:03 pm
but wait until Nintendo tomorrow

J Wellington Rommefeller 9:03 pm
and I believe they will

D O'Dubhslaine 9:03 pm
with a new overall console

J Wellington Rommefeller 9:04 pm
a new home console announcement along with Zelda may push them over the top
I will see you here tomorrow morning?

D O'Dubhslaine 9:05 pm
a NEW Zelda, not a remake
and yes sir
11 o'clock

J Wellington Rommefeller 9:05 pm
Good night, ol boy
