After skimming through the live blog
that Chuck and Nathan did of the Sony Press event, it appears they covered almost all of the important topics. I know we saw clips of God of War III
, Heavy Rain
during the press event (and one other 3D game), but Sony really skimmed over gaming for the most part. This is despite the fact that around 20% of their booth is taken up by gaming related displays.
Sony did mention that the PS3 would be getting a firmware upgrade in the future that will allow it to play 3D Blu-Ray and (probably) games. There was also a brief mention regarding the PS3 and PSP in the role of device connectivity.
Something else worth mentioning was the decision by Sony to support SD and SDHC. This is a huge concession for them, and one that was apparently swayed by the consumer. They plan to sell SD and Micro SD cards that range from 2 – 32 GB in size. Let us hope that in the future PSP versions, they switch to the more common and cheaper Micro SD instead of the Pro Duo and Micro.
I will take a closer look at the new Bravias, home theater systems and of course the 3D gaming and other games on display when I take my booth tour on Friday.
Update(Chuck) - Pretty sure Dan meant God of War III
