This was the conference that many of us were really looking forward to and I am happy to say that we were not disappointed.
The conference was heavily focussed on the Vita which I think may were relieved to see, given that at E3 we did not see much if any news regarding the Vita, well it appeared Sony had taken aboard comments regarding that and wanted to put it right.
It was initially revealed that we are to see an LBP wifi Vita bundle priced at 249 euro, after all who doesnt love Sackboy right.
Am sure most have heard of the upcoming PlayStation All Star Battle Royale, well if you buy the game for the PS3, you will get the VITA version for free.
Next up we got to take an exclusive new look at Assassins Creed Liberations, which just looks excellent, although we could be slightly biased given that we finally see an Assassins Creed with the main protagonist being female.
Then we got to learn a little more about the highly anticipated Black Ops Declassified, another exclusive Vita release. With an story mode which is set between the time of Black Ops and Black Ops 2, this game also boasts 4 v 4 multiplayer over wifi, with modes such as team deathmatch and kill confirmed.
This game will also be released as a Vita bundle, however price was not confirmed.
Next up was a surprise for many a new game from Media Molecule the developers of Little Big Planet, Tearaway. This game looks extremely exciting and innovative as you would expect from them and also appears to really use all the features of the Vita.
Some great new for Killzone fans that the Vita will be hosting a new Killzone game created specifically for it, Killzone mercenaries.
The we got to hear about PlayStation mobile, small games made by large and Indie developers, with these games you but them once and they are supported across all supported platforms.
Next up more Media Molecule news, with the announcement that LBP2 cross controller DLC will be coming later this year, which will allow us to play some levels using PS3 and PS Vita screens and controls, this for me screamed Wii U and appears to be really innovative way to use your systems.
For those of us that don’t have the Vita we were not forgotten, first PlayStation Plus, we are going to see 5 new games over the coming months and it was confirmed that the excellent Red Dead Redemption will be the game for September. Really cant believe that this will be free, Plus seems to just be getting and better.
Next us was the Wonderbook and an announcement that Sony have partnered up with Disney on this one, although it was not hinted at what games we would be seeing from that partnership. We got to see some kinds enjoying playing it. I know this is really exciting technology but for me it does nothing.
Then we got to see Fifa 13 working with the Move controller, you will be able to use the move controller to select to run your players, pass the ball and to mark other players. Think the move could work quite well with this.
Then we got to see what for me was the highlight of the conference new and exclusive games coming to the PlayStation.
First up Until Dawn, a new game for Move, was described as “just like your favorite teen horror movies.” You play as seven different teens, facing unspecified terrors out in the woods overnight, with the goal of keeping them all alive.
Next up we got take a Rain you play as a boy who is invisible until it rains, sounds a little odd but looks beautiful and breathtaking.
The last new title we saw was Puppeteer which looks completely crazy and such good slightly dark fun, as you play as a young boy on a terrible journey.
Last up we got a new trailer for the Last of Us which by now needs no introduction.
All in all it was an enjoyable conference from Sony and seemed to be received really well, it was very heavily focussed on the Vita but that can only be a good thing given that some were beginning to consider whether it was really being supported by Sony and it was exciting to see some new releases in the pipeline both for the Vita and for the PS3.
