Uncharted 2: Among Thieves announced and demoed. Looks good.
MAG unveiled with gameplay. 256 players online!!! Ridiculous!

PS3 Motion controller on display on stage. It works with the Eye Toy/Camera. Tech demo shown. Eye Camera seems outdated. right? Lauching in spring 10.
Sackboy/LBP on stage.
ModNation Racing Cart Game. Looks way too similar to Mario Kart. The only difference is a track/character creator.

Gran Turismo 5 trailer. No gameplay. sad.
God of War 3 FINALLY takes stage. Gameplay demoed. Video soon. Might get a PS3 this fall. Kratos can fricking fly! This game is Brutal!! Shipping March 2010. damn
That’s it. Closing time
Overall: Good conference. Better than the Nintendo by a mile. Honestly, it fells a bit short behind Microsoft. The motion controller is nothing new and is not really as huge and the PSP Go was leaked and took away the surprise of it all. No gameplay shown of Gran Turismo 5 was a huge letdown. Announcement of Final Fantasy Game was great and was the gameplay shown of Assassin’s Creed. God of War 3 was the best highlight of the show. This game is a must buy. You have to be crazy not to buy this.
Judging the press conferences, you have to see Microsoft was somewhat the winner. They kept more of their products under wraps. The announcement of Halo Reach as well as Project Natal were hugh. Nintendo did not impress at well. The hard core Nintendo fan will be disappointed this year i think. Sony kept up pace with Microsoft with the God of War 3 gameplay and Uncharted 2. Overall, Project Natal from Microsoft came out the big winner and so Microsoft walks away with this year’s conference. Plus, they had more celebrities (Ha Ha).
Video gameplay of God of War III
