- Uncharted 2 multiplayer beta starts tonight
We're going to show you more Uncharted 2 singleplayer today. "Here is Uncharted 2: Among Thieves." Drake is in a city like vista. Game looks phenomonal. So colourful. Draw distance is unreal. Cheers from throughout the auditorium. A helicopter chase ensues. The cinematic elements to this game...
- 24 Million on PSN
Moving away from sales. inFamous is pretty awesome. 35 exclusives on Playstation this year. Naughty Dog built up.
- Talking about Playstation 2
Hopefully they'll get it out of the way quickly. 100 new titles for Playstation 2 this year. PS3 install base grew by 40%.
- "2009 will be our best year ever
Even better than 2008." Playstation has grown lots. "This is the best lineup on Playstation to date." Heavy Rain gets big applause. "In 2009, you need Playstation 3."
- Jack Tretton makes a joke about the PSP Go leak
"We're industry leaders at press leaks." "My heart-beat is beating really fast." "Biggest problem is doing justice to the 364 games we have coming out."
- Spotted a ton of games in Sony's intro
Uncharted, White Knight Chronicles, God Of War, LBP, Heavy Rain. Interestingly different logo. PSP Games. LittleBigPlanet. PSN games. I think perhaps Sony are showcasing the range of content they're going to have here.
- An amazing CGI intro for Sony's conference
We are go!
- Music has stopped
I guess we'll be off pretty soon? Now worrying my computer has crashed. Music is back. Nothing happening yet. 2 minutes UP Sony. sigh.
- Just so you know
2 minutes until things kick off. "Find your seat".
- We're still waiting for the conference to start
2 minutes late right now. No doubt something to do with the Nintendo conference over-running. We'll take this time to apologise for typos in advance!
"Just a reminder to turn your cellphones off
" It's kicking off in literally, minutes. Oh-em-gee!</ul>
As is traditional, Sony have some sparse tech-rock spinning in the conference room
Helps to keep everyone quietly anticipating. And how we're anticipating - quick predictions: Assassin's Creed II, DJ Hero, all the pre-announced exclusives, PSP Go, loads (LOADS) of PSP games, Team Ico, Kojima. Calling it!
Following the leak of the PSP Go today, here are some Sony press shots of the new console Looks really snazzy when in its closed position. These shots are courtesy of Eurogamer. Thoughts in the comments.
Sony will be hitting the stage in under an hour. We're practically bubbling with excitement. You've heard our predictions, you've heard our ideas for the perfect conference and you've probably followed Nintendo and Microsoft over the last two days. The pressure is firmly on Sony's shoulders to be abrupt, concise and decisive. And we'll be...
Many were bemused at the lack of Assassin's Creed II content at the Ubisoft conference yesterday
After all, it's their biggest title this year. Perhaps it's because Sony want to show the game off? GTTV host Geoff Keighley thinks so:"If you're looking for the first demo of Assassins 2, look to the Sony briefing later this...
Final Fantasy XIII was announced for Spring 2010 at Microsoft's XBOX 360 conference; but the Japanese version is still on its way on Playstation 3 this Winter as confirmed by Square Enix's E3 line-up listings
There had been mumblings of a delay but it seems like the game is still on track. Thankfully.
As part of a trio of reveals from press site GamesPress we now have details on Metal Gear Solid Rising's platform origins, Metal Gear Solid's romp on the PSP with Peace Walker and also a new Castlevania game entitled - Castlevania: Lords Of Shadow
Lords Of Shadow was a game originally pitched as an "action IP" by Madrid-based Mercury...
Ubisoft's press conference was a strange beast
It seemed to last approximately seven years in length and, well, there was very little in the way of Assassin's Creed II - which we think everybody expected to be a big deal at the show. Especially when it launches on November 17th. That's, what, five or so months away? We've barely seen anything of the...
Here's the E3 trailer for Tecmo's upcoming Playstation 3 exclusive Quantum Theory
We suggest if you're reading instead of watching you stop right now and watch the video. Ok, we're now happy you've stopped reading and are instead being dazzled by the trailer, thus we'll continue to talk to ourselves about how amazing this game looks.
Microsoft announced a weird Eye Toy-esque gimmick last night with the terrible name "Natal"
With Nintendo already prominent in the motion control department, it seems just Sony are left to make the jump. Cue rumours coming out of E3 about Sony's "Wand"; a new controller which will allow full motion tracking. After the uproar Microsoft's...
So much for being done with the Metal Gear Solid franchise, eh Kojima? Not only do we have Metal Gear Solid Rising, but announced via the very same press site we posted about earlier is a listing for Kojima's PSP game - Metal Gear Solid: Peace Walker
The game is scheduled for a 2010 release.
Hideo Kojima may have announced Metal Gear Solid Rising is in development for XBOX 360, but, hey, you know what? It's multiplatform
We already assumed that after Konami dodged the term "exclusive" and Microsoft's John Schappert clarified no exclusivity. But hey - a press listing for the game on PS3 and PC has pretty much confirmed things...
.. If you can call this a Crysis 2 trailer at all. It just looked like shards of floating glass on a black background to us. But hey, different strokes for different folks - no doubt the Crysis fanboys are already screaming "game of the year".
Following up the introduction trailer, the first The Beatles: Rock Band trailer shows off the game's harmony system, graphic style and range of career spanning tunes
Awww man. This is actually the first time we've been sold by a rhythm game. This is going to be big.
For your viewing pleasure, The Beatles: Rock Band's packaged Ludwig drum kit which kinda doesn't look anything like the real kit but is designed around being used in a video game so we'll let them off
What do you need to make your heavy metal video game even better? A better initial idea? Well, yes, that - or the Prince Of Darkness himself Ozzy Osbourne
Ozzy Osbourne will be playing an unnamed character in Brutal Legend who looks a lot like Ozzy Osbourne. Funny that. We hope he can manage to read his script ok.
At their conference last night, EA's Peter Moore announced an entirely new game for the "consoles" - EA Sports MMA
The game will feature "multiple fighting techniques" and looks like a martial arts style affair. We assume more details about the game will appear at some point soon.
Fight Night Round 4 is shaping up to be one of the most visceral and graphically pleasing sports games of all time
At EA's press briefing last night they announced that the game would be available 5 days earlier than expected, releasing on June 25th. Expect a review on PushSquare around then.
Microsoft may have invited Hideo Kojima on stage to announce his new Metal Gear Solid game; but there was no mention of exclusivity
Why? Because it's not exclusive."You know, we didn't say that it was exclusive," clarified Xbox executive and corporate VP John Schappert (he was the guy hosting most of the event) during an interview with me...
Konami has declined to comment on the platform of Metal Gear Solid Rising; neither confirming XBOX 360 exclusivity, nor denying a Playstation 3 version
Kojima surely won't deny the platform that has made his franchise a success?
The image is blurry, but those of you with apt enough eyesight will spot what appears to be a small "trophy unlock" icon appearing during a demo game of SOCOM Fireteam Bravo 3
This is something we've been wanting for a long, long time, so hopefully Sony announce it at their E3 conference tomorrow. Naturally it could be absolutely anything, so...
What you see above is what happens when you take CGI, a classic novel and craft it all together into one sub-3 minute trailer with sole intent of getting people excited for your game
Dante's Inferno looks amazing in our opinion.
Evolution Studios have just announced two entirely new content packs for MotorStorm: Pacific Rift giving players a slew of new tracks, vehicles and trophies to play with

Zephyr: Rise Of The Elements is a new game for the PS3 in which you'll guide a tornado in its path of destruction
Looking at the image above, we're guessing Zephyr's going to be a pretty tongue in cheek experience. It's the first game to come from Loose Cannon Studios, a new team consisting of Sucker Punch veterans. We'll have more as we know it.

In traditional style, Sony's E3 conference will span a full 2 hours tomorrow night
For comparison, Nintendo will speak for an hour and Microsoft for around 95 minutes. The news has broken from Geoff Keighley's Twitter page, who incidentally, likes to make sure his Twitter page is never too far from the gaming press. He wrote:To those asking about...
Since the beginning of time, BBC technology editor Darren Waters has spoken about a "secret game" Sony showed him a while back that led him to hype a "step change in what games consoles are capable of in terms of story-telling and immersion"
And now he reckons it might finally be shown to the public. The game, which has since taken on its own title...
Here's the trailer to Square Enix's recently announce Front Mission Evolved
There's a pretty cool explosion in the video. There are also some nice looking robots. It's hard to assume much else though, because, well this is a cinematic trailer. There's zero gameplay in here. Hey, it all looks like it would probably be quite good though. Right?
The PSP Go may have leaked, but SCEA's PR man Jake Osuwah reckons it matters diddly squat
Speaking on Twitter he claimed:<span class="entry-content">Pre-E3 annoucements or not! There's still lots of shockers planned for you guys @ E3, stay tuned...</span></blockquote> <span class="entry-content">So there...

LEGO Harry Potter has been on the cards for a while
But today, Warner finally released the first trailer for LEGO Harry Potter: Years 1-4 — which naturally will document the first four years of Harry's time at Hogwarts. The trailer looks suitably rough but, alas, the game is not due until next year. Press release after the jump. WARNER BROS...
Quantum Theory may have been delayed for a little while, but when the game is already looking this good, we're almost frightened to imagine how the delay could make the final version look

According to VG247, those interviewing Polyphony Digital's Kazanori Yamauchi have been asked not to mention Gran Turismo 5
