E3 2009: Uncharted 2, MAG, God Of War III Thrill The Crowd

Sony's E3 press conference has just drawn to a close, and while we have a few more things to update you on - that insanely innovative motion sensing technology, the PlayStation Home update, etc. - we've got you pretty well covered.

Not surprisingly, the three titles listed in this headline really stole the show (not counting the super huge announcement of FFXIV being a PS3 exclusive); they kicked things off with a long Uncharted 2: Among Thieves trailer, which was so gorgeous it almost hurt to watch. Then there was an in-depth gameplay presentation of MAG, which - if we're assessing that video correctly - is everything you've ever heard and twice as much again. But they saved the best for last: a God of War III demo that was both long and wonderfully satisfying. This dude stood up there and played the demo in question for quite a while, and the diversity and fluidity of the combat, not to mention the stunning backdrops and visuals, dropped our jaws. It was the single best way to draw their conference to a close, and it seems clear to us that Sony has proven their dedication to producing top-quality and groundbreaking titles. There's little doubt that GoWIII will be an absolutely humongous title when it releases next year, and yes, it's still set for March 2010. Any other rumors you may have heard to the contrary are clearly untrue.

Anyway, there were plenty of other games on display during the Sony conference as well. We didn't see Heavy Rain, unfortunately, but we did get another sneak peek at Gran Turismo 5! I mean, man...talk about comin' with the hot software!

i just watched it and some of the guy in the chat actually think M$ took it this year. talk about delusional. only thing M$ took was peoples hard earned money. the team ICO game looked sick so did GOW 3, and uncharted2 as well. the only thing i didn't care for was the motion sensor. i function better than the wii though

I want to know when that God of War III demo is coming. Surely it will be out before next year, yes?

Don't forget The Last Guardian Ben! It may of been a familiar trailer but the drastic improvements made it just as special (more to me) as the rest. The mare mention of it got the crowd cheering.

They didn't show any Heavy Rain, but I guess they have nothing more to show since we already watched those exclusive trailers from GT.

I got one from FilePlanet and one from the Infamous preorder. I think you'll need to wait till Jun 3rd - it won't be valid till then. One of my friends had indicated he might want the extra beta code that I have. If he ends up not using it, I'll post the surplus one here for someone to use.

Don't cheer me yet - I'm also hoping that the codes will become active come June 3rd. If not, I'm gonna be tearing a horn off some beast and shoving it in it's face a-la Kratos too! :))

Played the beta today morning, it's so good! Great graphics too. I noticed a slight lag in my character's motion-there's a slight time difference from the time i move the joystick to when my character moves. I'm sure they'll polish all of that for the full game though! I suck at multiplayer, so got fragged majorly today, but it was still fun!:)

I watched it on Gamespot and man I do not know why fanboys exist.All they did was bash everything that Sony showed.I mean if you don't like the console that much then why even bother to look at the event.

I was not very impressed because of some things that had leaked,but we already know the great line up of games already.I don't care for the 360,but I did not bash their conference either or Nintendo's.

I mean what is the point of being a fanboy? On the bright side,I enjoyed the extended Last Guardian Trailer,The GOW3 gameplay and some new GT5 footage.At least Sony did announce a new exclusive The Agent.

Thanks for the update, downloading it now.

Also, I like the new sound of PSN. It sounds different to me but it might have changed earlier and I didn't notice.

Have to admit, the exclusives look incredible... going to download the conference again in HD to see all the footage clearly :)

But please, don't discount Project Natal, I think M$ will bring out some amazing stuff for it; that is my feeling anyway. Liongate will use it in a Fable game, I am sure of it.

Q!

Molyneux must have been the most boring part of the MS show. Some insane women making friends with a little boy on screen? Telling him to do his homework? I could hear the 'plop' sound from that turd.

Uncharted 2 (about a million times better than expected)
GoWIII (my brain was exploding)
The Last Guardian (These guys are geniuses)
Assassin's Creed 2 (looks even better than the first)

I'll be standing in line for all of them.
