You can stream the Sony Press Conference live from E3 now on Ustream!
It has just kicked off with your run-of-the-mill introduction and it is currently showing footage from the next Quantic Dream game - Beyond. Another PlayStation exclusive from the team that brought you Heavy Rain, Beyond stars Ellen Page as the protagonist in what looks like another story/character driven extravaganda. "Beyond will be unlike anything you've ever experienced before", says David Cage.
11:20am: Launching into PlayStation All-Stars Battle Royale. It'll be available for PS Vita and cross-compatible with PS3. Doing a live demo of it now. Apparently Big Daddy will be a playable character.
11:28am: PS Vita cross-controller support via DLC for LittleBigPlanet 2, allowing people to play the game together on PS3 with other players using PS Vita as a controller. "...will enhance your gameplay and create completely new experiences."
11:31am: PlayStation Plus offering more free games starting soon (possibly only in NA?) - Saints Row 2, Infamous 2, Little Big Planet 2.
11:35am: Just cracked 80,000 people live streaming this. Pretty awesome. Talking about Hulu Plus, which I assume isn't available for Australians.
11:36am: Call of Duty: Black Ops declassified coming to PS Vita.
11:37am: Brief demo reel of Assassin's Creed Liberation on PS Vita. Can be linked with PS3, which will offer some special unlocks. Available on October 30th; there'll be a bundle with a new crystal white Wifi Vita (...applause...?).
11:38am: Assassin's Creed 3 first look on the PlayStation 3 with Alex Hutchinson. Showing some new footage of them at sea and how you can take the revolution to the high seas, doing some neat naval warfare stuff. Unleash wicked broadsides!
11:44am: Assassin's Creed 3 bundle w/ PlayStation 3.
11:48am: Far Cry 3 co-operative multiplayer action live demo.
11:50am: PlayStation Move's turn. Wonderbook announced to bring stories to life, using Move and EyeToy. Looks mostly for the younger generation of gamers. Wonderbook: Book of Spells in conjunction with J.K. Rowling and Pottermore. Doing a very long presentation of this title, but it's really hard to stay interested. Wrong demographic for an E3 presentation!
12:06pm: HTC will be first partner to share in PS expertise to roll out PlayStation stuff to their Android phones as part of their mobile/tablet stuff with PlayStation Suite - renamed to "PlayStation Mobile".
12:09pm: God of War: Ascension gameplay demo on the PS3. Brutal and bloody.
12:18pm: Last of Us live demo. Looks brutally awesome.
That's it - stay tuned for trailers.
