Closed the lid of my computer without paying much attention as I was dashing off to work this morning, opened it up again tonight to see Crunchyroll paused on this.

Sony Steps Up in a Big Way at E3
Sony came to E3 prepared. They’ve been touting for months now that the PS4 will be the place for gamers, and today, Sony backed up that statement. But they weren’t without entertainment offerings like their direct competitor. The first thing to mention though, is that the PS4 will be out this holiday season in the US and Europe at $399. (Phew!)
Sony spent a little time discussing their entertainment features on the PS4. Their services included original programming from Sony Pictures and Sony Music. PS4 will also include access to Music Unlimited and Video Unlimited on day one. All of the video services on PS3 (Netflix, Hulu Plus, Amazon Instant Video, MLB TV, NHL Center Ice, etc.) will be present, as well as Red Box Instant, Flixster, and Live Events Viewer.
Sony also gave some love to the PS3 and Vita, highlighting games coming out on both systems within the next year. On Vita there will be:

Batman: Arkham Origins Blackgate


Final Fantasy X & X-II HD


God of War 1 & 2 HD


Dead Nation


Tearaway


The Walking Dead: 400 Days

The Vita will also see a The Walking Dead/Vita bundle.
On PS3, Sony highlighted:

The Last of Us


The Puppeteer


Rain


Beyond: Two Souls


Gran Turismo 6


Batman: Arkham Origins Blackgate


Grand Theft Auto V

The PS3 also will be getting a bundle with GTA V.
The Playstation 4 was next on deck, with Sony unloading all their guns. To kick off the games, Sony showed back-to-back trailers for the following first-party exclusives:

The Order: 1886 (A fantasy steampunk game set in London made by both Santa Monica Studios and Ready At Dawn Studios, the creators of God of War)


Killzone: Shadow Fall


Driveclub


inFamous: Second Son


Knack


The Dark Sorcerer (which is rumored to be merely a tech demo by Quantic Dream)

Sony then showed their indie support some love, first showing off The Witness (an exclusive by the creator of Braid) and Transistor (an exclusive from the creators of Bastion). Next, Sony went rapid-fire, listing off games that will either be console exclusive, or debuted early on PS4. The games shown were:

Don’t Starve (Klei Entertainment)


Mercenary Kings (Tribute Games)


OctoDad: Dadliest Catch (Young Horses)


Secret Ponchos (Switchblade Monkeys)


Ray’s the Dead (Ragtag Studios)


Outlast (Red Barrels)


Oddworld: New and Tasty (Oddworld Inhabitants)


Galaxy (17-Bit Games)

After the indie developers, Square-Enix took the stage to announce that Final Fantasy Versus XIII was still in development and has been renamed Final Fantasy XV. Square-Enix also revealed that the long-awaited Kingdom Hearts III is finally on its way.
Sony showed more third-party support by showing off more in-game footage for Watch_Dogs, Elder Scrolls Online (as well as announcing early beta exclusivity to PS4), Destiny, and announced a new Mad Max game.
After the games talk was done, Sony clarified that the PS4 will have no restrictions on used games, will have no online requirements, and that games will require no authentication; completely differentiating themselves from Microsoft and the Xbox One.
With a strong showing of games, support for gamers with its lack of restrictions and more affordable price, it’s hard to argue the strength of Sony’s presentation. It all ends up coming down to the individual consumer and what games you want to play, but in a worst-case scenario for Sony, the playing ground is even. How do you feel about Sony’s E3 briefing? Will you be buying a PS4 or an Xbox One? Stay tuned for any more announcements from E3 and a recap of Nintendo’s Direct video tomorrow on VGN.

In case you need some context for the sick burn Sony just laid on Microsoft, this is a great summary of the press conference. Really, now that the PS4 was revealed to be less expensive than the Xbox One, it’s all over. Not that I think Microsoft could really have done anything to outweigh the negative public opinion at this point, but man. Toast.
It’s a shame because I’ve very much enjoyed gaming on 360 this gen and vastly prefer that type of controller design, but that’s hardly enough to breed the kind of brand loyalty that would be necessary in this situation. Next gen is going to be a repeat of the PS2 era, with Sony on top.

The other exclusive most of you guessed this nendoroid! It’s Nendoroid Hatsune Miku Yukata Natsutsumaki Ver! She’ll be available for sale at Anime Expo this July!

-Mamitan <3

The balloon yo-yos are such a great accessory! I’m loving the candy apple drool-face, too!

Everyone ready to rush to the Good Smile Booth and buy this cutie? I’ll race ya!

At this point, Miku figures have really transcended &#8220;things I don&#8217;t need more of&#8221; territory into &#8220;I will probably die an ironic death by being buried in these or something&#8221; land. But UWAH, isn&#8217;t this just the cutest?!
