Riff's Quick Notes: Sony E3 2010 Press Conference

Killzone 3: i know there are a ton and a half of people who love this series, but I just can't get past the blandness of it all. The new jetpacks add a bit of new gameplay, but it's just not enough for me.

LOOOOTS of 3D talk: Not gonna do anybody any good if they can't fork over the thousands of dollars for a 3D tv. Sly Cooper collection looked nice though.

Sorcery: The first game played on-stage using the Playstation Move. Preety much a Harry Potter ripoff, but looks a lot better than anything that was played with Kinect.

Tiger Woods Golf with Move: hitting a ball with an imaginary stick. Yay.

Heroes on the Move: More Move stuff, but a super collection with Ratchet, Sly Cooper, Dax, and their buddies. Just a teaser, though.

Kevin Butler brings the AWESOME!! Then my connection craps out.

Move launches in the U.S. on September 19 in several configurations. Just a cntroller for $49.99, or a full-on starter kit for $99.99. Cheaper than I thought.

Invizimals: Fucking hell, guys! Little late to rip off Nintendogs, isn't it?

God of War Ghost of Sparta: Damn it, just a teaser trailer.

Little Big Planet 2: Knew this one was coming. Still not interested, as I have no design skills for the life of me.

Playstation Plus: Uh oh, a tiered pricing for additional PSN content. Not too bad pricing, as it mirrors Xbox Live. Plus, on-line playing remains free. We'll have to wait and see if the content is worth the price.

Medal of Honor: Hey, a single player video! Looks much better than the multiplayer demo from last night.

Dead Space 2: A continuation of the demo from last night, with a boss character and the announcement of a special edition. Extraction for the Move? Intriguing.

OH SHIT!! PORTAL 2!!! FOR PS3!!! Well, I'm hard.

Final Fantasy XIV Online: I don't care how pretty they make it look, I'm not playing an MMORPG.

Mafia II and Assassin's Creed Brotherhood: Exclusive crap for the PS3. Looks like I'll have to change my AC:BR reservation.

Gran Turismo 5: Finally coming out. Go nuts, car racer fans.

Infamous 2: Crap, I gotta get to work. Why do they have to show the good stuff when I have to bail out the door?

Twisted Metal: With David Jaffee!! Woo!!

Final thoughts: Sony get the middle position. Better than MS, but not able to beat Nintendo in big announcements. Portal 2 was a jaw dropper, as was Twisted Metal, and the Move is looking a lot better than Kinect right now.
