E3 2009: Sony

Out of the big three, Sony is the one that needs to step it up a notch to impress those that don't have a PlayStation 3 and give them a reason to purchase one. With no mention of a price drop, Sony is banking on God Of War III and a few other titles to persuade those without a PS3 to spend a huge chunk of change on their console.

(still being updated as videos become available)

-A live gameplay demo of Uncharted 2 was shown.

-MAG had a recorded demo video shown, which included 256 real players. So many players. Hopefully its performance holds up for retail. Lag is not fun.

-Sony is releasing a revised PSP called the PSP Go. It will retail for $249.99 and be released on October 1 of this year.

-There is another Metal Gear Solid gaming coming to the PSP. This time, it looks like you and up to four friends can enjoy the Snake goodness. The game is called Metal Gear Solid: Peace Walker.

-All of that waiting through the Ubisoft disaster of a press conference and we didn't get any Assassin's Creed 2 gameplay. Thank Sony for giving us what we wanted. Assassin's Creed 2 will be out this holiday season.

-Microsoft tried to show up Nintendo with their own innovation called Project Natal. Sony also wanted to get in on the motion control goodness. Here is a tech demo of Sony's motion controller.

-The PlayStation 3's big daddy, God of War III. Sony showed a live gameplay demo and it was pretty much what you would expect from a God of War game. Enjoy the horse guts. The game will be out March 2010.

-Never Ending Story: The Game. No, I am kidding. This is The Last Guardian. It comes from the minds that brought us Ico and Shadow of the Colossus.

-I never got into the Gran Turismo series. I hated the idea of having to get a liscense just to play the races in the game. Gran Turismo 5 is coming out for the PlayStation 3. Enjoy this trailer.

-Love customization? You will love Modnation Racers. Customize your kart, your character, and your own tracks. Coming in 2010.
