I wouldnt go expecting this topic to be as big as the E3 one. Mostly because Sony is the only one of the big 3 participating in a conference this year, much like last year. Fortunately, this year brings less Ken Kutaragi talking about how awesome he is (probably because he no longer works at Sony) and more, y'know, announcements. Good announcements? Weeeeeell... New PSP in October Revision #3: This time with a "more vibrant LCD screen" and an in-built microphone! And probably even more anti-custom firmware measures. 15th October in Europe for 199 Euros, in a choice of eight bundles (FIFA, Harry Potter, Buzz, Go! Communications and presumably some others). And as a result, the slim and lite model will become 169 Euros for "a limited period of time". Too bad you cant do that with your PS3's eh? 80Gb PS3 model launches early; new 160Gb model announced The E3-announced 80Gb PS3 will launch in Europe this Friday as opposed to next week as originally planned (although Australia and New Zeland only get the new model on the 28th), priced 399 Euros. And on October 31st, they'll be launching a 160Gb model for 449 Euros with 70 Euros of additional downloadable content "to be announced closer to the release date". Great Sony. How about a, y'know, price cut?!? Wireless Keypad for PS3 Which totally doesnt look like the 360's chatpad. Completely different. Uh huh. No release date. VidZone announced Some sort of free service to offer "easy access to music on demand". You'll be able to build your own music library and download ringtones for your mobile phone "for a very small fee". I wont pretend to understand it, though I do know it is completely seperate to the video store that was announced at E3, which is still coming to Europe. New SingStar products SingStar Vol. 3 and SingStar Disney announced, plus the ability to play your PS2 SingStar discs on the PS3. Which is really what they should have done from the beginning. They'll also be doing 5 song "packs", which I assume is similar to the setup Guitar Hero has been using for so long. EyePet revealed Looks like some sort of cross between Nintendogs (except without, y'know, dogs), and... Mario Paint? I dunno. Some kid drew a car, the weird monkey thingy coloured it in game, and casual gamer dad pressed a button on the gamepad to make the car 3D. I am assuming psychotropic drugs were used heavily in the production of this title. All in all, Sony's conference this year was weird. And you've just wasted 10 minutes of your life reading about it.
