Insomniac is heavily involved in the movie.  Remastering the original game for PS4.  Movie and game coming first half of 2015.  The Last of Us remastered edition July 29th.  That game was so good.  The trailer they showed makes me want to play again.

Time for PlayStation Plus talk.

Talk about Powers.  New show based on the comic book.  Brian Michael Bendis comes out on stage to talk about Powers.

Jab at Microsoft and their Kinect bungle.  Talk about Project Morpheus.  2 new demos at E3.  Now it’s time for Shawn Layden to come out and talk.

Console debut on PS4.  No Man’s Sky.  Looks like it will be completely insane in scope.  Hello Games will have a crazy popular product on their hands.  Looks like different players will find new species and planets.  Completely Procedural, Infinite Universe.  Every player will start on a different planet at the beginning of the game.  No loading between planets and space from the looks of the trailers shown.  Massive space battles.  The promise they’re making on this game had better deliver, because it will be truly amazing.

Abzu.  Looks like more of that beautiful artsy type stuff that is completely captivating.  Tons of game titles shown on screen that are coming to PlayStation.

9:11 – Another new IP only on PS4.  Super creepy looking.  I believe this is in engine.   Oh, it’s The Order 1886.  The bit about the power being out threw me off a bit.  Looks pretty scary.  Really good atmosphere.

9:04 – Looks like we’re underway now.

9:03 – Classic Sony late start.  Stay Tuned.

8:53 – We are about 7 minutes out now.  Grab the popcorn.  I’m looking forward to seeing Destiny.  I want to get hyped for that game, but recent news on it has made me concerned.  I trust that Bungie can pull it off, but certain things about the game have worried me.

8:15 – Under 45 minutes until Sony hits us with their best shot.

 

Anyone?  No?  Ok.
