missed most of this, but looking thru Joystiq...

New Games Announced

  • Beyond: Two Souls (Heavy Rain-ish?, same developer) - no ETA
  • Playstation All Stars (PS Super Smash Brothers) - "later this Holiday" - Vita/PS3 cross-play; newly announced characters are Nathan Drake (Uncharted) and Big Daddy (Bio Shock)
  • Assassins Creed 3 + Special DLC will be part of new hardware bundles for PS3 and Vita; you'd have to get them both to get everything (or wait until they release it)
  • Far Cry 3 co-op add on; free DLC for PS3 version
  • Wonderbook, an augmented reality book platform using the Move
  • God of War: Ascension demoed - out March 12, 2013
  • The Last Of us demoed. Ellen Page doing voices for this and Beyond: Two Souls


Add-ons/Others

  • PS+ will be getting Infamous 2, Little Big Planet II, and Saints Row II free starting tomorrow. Space Marine, Rachet All 4 One, Sideway, Lara Croft all teased as upcoming free giveaways - more full free games is the emphasis.
  • Vita will get PS1 classics "this Summer"; unclear if all games
  • LBP2 add on will turn the Vita into a controller.
  • HTC will is the first non-Sony Playstation Suite (now Playstation Mobile) partner


--------------

Sucks to be if you just bought Infamous 2 in last week's sale. Maybe I'll get back on PS+ when Rachet All 4 One comes out.

The Move still exists! Targeted clearly at the casual young gamer and not force-fed into every major release, but they're still doing something with it. Compare it to 3D, a major emphasis last year and apparently not even mentioned this year. Vita is still a major emphasis.

Like Microsoft, Sony's not even hinting at the next generation hardware we know they're working on. Probably don't want to harm current sales by hyping something that's still 18 months away, but not only is it an elephant in the room, but it almost means whatever they're holding back for it (the next Uncharted/Infamous for me, but maybe something like Resistance for you) can't be mentioned quite yet. This seemed shallower than usual, depending on how you feel about the Last Of us.

Actually, this is kind of a funny topic of conversation amongst gaming circles.

"The Last of Us" features a young girl that looks and sounds a lot like Ellen Page, but does NOT feature Ellen Page.

Beyond: Two Souls features a character that doesn't really look all that much like Ellen Page, but actually IS voiced by Ellen Page.

That should clear up any confusion.

The Last of Us seems really cool. Kind of like The Road: The Game.
