There, now that THAT's out of the way.

Radiata stories

http://www.gamespot....ries/index.html

The developer behind Valkyrie Profile and Star Ocean teams up with Square Enix to produce this new fantasy role-playing game.


----------

Fake Edit: Haha Scorch, no way man. I think people are competant enough to find mass-update-lists on their own. These threads are just to post the late-breaking-announcements, and any new updates. I was just sick of everybody waiting around, wanting somebody else to do it because they didn't want to update it.

It's like the trashbin that everybody keeps stacking stuff on, because they don't want to take it out. Well, kind of like that, but not really.

LoL poor gizmodo guy got left out

E3: Sony Gave Me Cancer
Home Entertainment filed under Home Entertainment : Playstation

So despite the fact that I can provide all the press credentials they need, Sony has cockblocked me from the PS3 press conference. I’ve done everything I know how to do, but they’ve left me out to roast in the overcast oven of the Sony Pictures Culver City production lot.

At this point, I have two options: wait for a few hours while Brian writes about fucking finger-sized hot dogs and hope that my RSVP at the Xbox event isn’t boned; book a ticket back to the New York and kill everyone who I’ve ever loved (currently in the front running); take the video camera and bum rush the line, yelling insults about SCEA and the asshole PR firm flunkies who have the gall to let reporters from print magazines but not an internet superstar. The third option would be the most entertaining for you (I hear the LAPD make for great video), but since we don’t have a way to host video, it’s probably all a waste.

I want to go home.

Flipnic: Ultimate Pinball looks surprisingly good.

I've been kind of soured on Pinball games (because they mostly suck), but this is Capcom and not some lame bargain-bin company. I want to see this in action.

since no one is updating these, dont link to these threads if someone makes an individual post. because these threads will still be a clusterfuck. (this rule does not apply to the xbox thread)

Conference should start in a few minutes...No live feeds though, videos should come after the conference is over.

You can always buy the over-priced DVDs from Gamespot (and others) a month or so after the fact. It'll almost be like you were there but didn't have to stand in line. :D

I bought a set of the E3 2004 DVDs from Gamestop earlier this year for $5 new (4 DVDs). I forget what company made them, but they included the three pre-E3 press conferences plus a load of trailers, interviews, etc. Buying them new right after this year's E3 will probably run you $20 or more though.

The presentation started with a little game history. “PlayStation 2 defined digital enterainment…. PlayStation Portable, the next revolution!” The chest thumping was accompanied by thumping speakers.
First up: Kaz Hirai. “Are you guys excited about E3?” The audience barely cheered, so he had to try again. C’mon, show us the goods, then we’ll be excited… maybe.

He does the numbers: 190 million units of hardware, 2 billion units of software. He does the backwards compatibility thing. These are the Sony strengths, so he reminds the audience that these are the goods that Microsoft can’t match.

Queue pointless interlude of flashy CGI graphics (not sure what that was for).

Ken Kutaragi introduced, and he proceeds to give the audience another lesson on the history of the PlayStation consoles. From “Real-time 3D-CG” to “Emotion Engine.” He confirms backwards compatibility of the PlayStation 3, eliciting the first audience applause since he took the stage.

Cut to a video of an IBM dude woodenly reading from a teleprompter (his eyes dart quickly left-to-right) about the cell processor system. “Even though at times it seemed like an impossible journey, the entire team overcame impossible challenges to meet the goals…. We are very excited to look forward to see all the entertainment this chip will help create.”

Highly technical performance overview given, including the following slides:

Sony also laid out the technical specs of the device. The PlayStation 3 will feature the much-vaunted Cell processor, which will run at 3.2 Ghz and feature 2.18 teraflops of performance. It will sport 256mb XDR main RAM at 3.2 Ghz, have 256MB of GDDR VRAM at 700mhz, a detachable 2.5 inch HDD slot, six usb 2.0 ports, Memory Stick Duo, a SD slot, a compact flash memory slot, Compact flash slot, 2 hdmi outputs, 1 av multi out, 1 SPDIF optical output, and 1-gigabit Ethernet built in port


I'm suprised that they'd use non propreitary memory formats, that's pretty cool ;). no DVI ports eh? I guess that's ok since I can get those from HDMI.

What's been confirmed so far: Re-writeable UMDs for $25, Kojima is writing the script for MGS4, the next GTA will be an exclusive launch title and finally the wireless controllers for the PS3 will be charged by resting them on the system itself.

So are the PS3 specs substantially better then the XBox 2 specs?
Also re-writable UMDS, does that mean we can finally burn movies to our PSP outside of putting them in the memory stick duo?
