sony-playstation3-40gb-game-consoleLast year they lost Final Fantasy 13. This year they lost Metal Gear Solid. They’re last place int the gaming arms race. Did they save face this year? Well, you tell me. Here are the highlights from Sony’s press conference.

Heavy Rain – Not much info was given about the game. Only a trailer was shown.

New Ratchet and Clank – See above.

Uncharted 2 – This game looked very nice. I personally can’t wait to play this, the original was amazing.

MAG – Maybe it was just a bad demo, but this look dull as hell. I can’t say I have any interest in this.

PSP Go! – The much rumored update to the flop known as the PSP was unveiled. This thing will be 250 bucks. Really, Sony? You guys know we’re in a recession, right? You also know one could buy a Wii for the same price?

Gran Tourismo PSP – Chris said he thought this game was three years too late. I agree. Regardless, this is set to be released October 1st, 2009.

Metal Gear Solid: Peace Walker – Well, the PSP is getting one cool announcement. This game looked to be a definite buy. The trailer was very cool.

Resident Evil PSP – Not much info was given besides the name.

Final Fantasy 7 – This will be available today (6-2-09) on the PSN.

Guitar Hero: Van Halen – You know how these games work. If you’re a fan of Van Halen, no doubt you’ll buy this game.

New Katamari – Not much info was given. Just the announcement.

Final Fantasy 14 – This surprised the hell out of me. Final Fantasy 13 isn’t out, but lo and behold, he we are with a Final Fantasy 14 announcement. This one will be PS3 exclusive.

PS3 Motion Controller – Nintendo should sue over this. This thing was a WiiMote with a glowing orb on top. A blatant rip-off.

Agent – This game will be PS3 exclusive.

ModNation Racers – Much like LittleBigPlanet, this will be completely customizable by the player. It’s basically LBP if that was a kart racer.

The Last Guardian – This is the third installment in the Ico/Shadow of the Colossus trilogy. Looked really beautiful and had a great score.

Grand Tourismo 5 – I didn’t catch a release date for this, I may have not been paying attention.

God of War III – Of course this is what everyone wanted to hear about. A bit of gameplay was shown, definitely looks amazing. It will be a must buy when it is released in March 2010.

So there you have it. Nothing big from Sony. I would say Microsoft won the show, as much as that pains me (yes, I am a Nintendo fanboy). Really shocked that Sony didn’t announce a price cut for the PS3. I don’t don’t look for them to come out of last place anytime soon, if ever.
