SCE Annual Staff Briefing Information Blowout

Sony Computer Entertainment held an annual staff briefing yesterday in London. A tipster who goes by the name of ‘Legends’ has alerted D+Pad on everything that happened at the event. There is a lot of information, so I suggest you brace yourself then hit the jump.

The PlayStation 3 will be receiving a price cut in March 2009, assuming from what SCEE President David Reeves stated at the event talking about how SCEE is going to get more competitive on pricing from March 2009 and onwards.

Reeves has also stated that the PlayStation 3 has a bigger install base than the Xbox 360 in European territories and that the install base will increase in 2009.

The PlayStation Network will continue to grow in the future. This year the PlayStation Network has made Sony £150m on content.

Next, LittleBigPlanet and Motorstorm for the PSP is indevelopment. LBP PSP has only been in development for four months, some footage was shown.

Finally, Uncharted 2 was shown. The footage displayed Drake being shot at, followed by an explosion. ‘Legends’ spotted a wall with a line of 4 or 5 Aztec masks. He says the game’s visuals “Looks the same as Uncharted 1, no bad thing”.

God of War III was at the conference as well. It was “masterfully shown at the end” of the show. He said it looked so good he couldn’t tell whether or not it was CG.

The trailer showed Kratos fighting hoards of skeletons and Cyclops, then catching a ride on an Eagle, and killing it after he dropped off. Kratos looked up into a dark, deep cavern.

“Some of it looked like it could be in-game action because of the camera angles, but it all looked so good that it couldn’t be. CGI or not, everyone was pumped up by this. The anticipation is growing. God of War 3 could be amazing.”

Now, can the public see God of War III and Uncharted 2, Sony?
