E3 2014 Sony Press Conference, Caine's Notes
« on: June 09, 2014, 07:00:43 PM »
Warning, all these notes were taken during watching the conference and are very rough, I attempted to gather as much relevant and important information as possible, the format is very rough, and I may have missed some things, otherwise enjoy. There is a possibility I'll clean it up later but don't count on it.

Open Planet Mars, 3 astros with balistic weapons walk on surface, zoom out, speak of terraforming, bulding galaxy for the better etc, great darkness, it finds us, end of everything, until a halo cube looking thing "found you", Only a few "carry the light" and "have the strength to fight the darkness", "You are our last hope", "of you fail we're fucked" tropes, flashy action sequences, looks somewhat MMOish in play, firefights/fps stuff as well,

747: One last thing, Trailer Captured using PS4, Naughtydog presents, Uncharted 4: A Theif's End, looks the way one would expect it would, meaning damned fucking good Coming 2015

749: Game Montage Out

Sony was highly unfocused, while they did have to talk about PSNow (and failed to tell us what we really wanted to know about it), and it makes sense to speak briefly about Project Morpheus, it just seemed so damned unfocused, when they were in game mode, they were stronger than MS, however, much of the show was disjointed, lots of exclusive content deals, not a lot of exclusive games coming out before 2015, this conference has me puzzled as to what to grade it, the others were very cut in dry in my mind what they were, I'm going to have to go with a C. The way they portrayed their message was just too all over the place. They could have covered all the same content they did in a much better way.

Final Word, Grade: C

I wanted to but I never had the extra cash. And then I traded in my 360 for XB1 games and stuff.
