The Show

Sony’s conference was quite good, they started off strong, kind of petered out in the middle but hit home at the end. I wasn’t a huge fan of the whole services and such and kind of got bored at that point as I believe that it went for a little bit too long – but honestly other than that the conference was very enjoyable.

Final Thoughts

I guess every PlayStation and Team ICO fan would say that they’d wished that Sony had unveiled something about The Last Guardian, but who knows where that is in its development abyss. I absolutely loved the LittleBigPlanet 3 reveal, the Far Cry 4 gameplay, GTA V going next-gen and of course, the (proper) unveiling of Uncharted 4: A Thief’s End. I think it was a very solid conference and I believe it absolutely lived up to the hype that was surrounding it after Microsoft’s excellent conference. Both consoles have an excellent library of exclusives coming out and I can see this being an incredible couple of years for gamers.
