Sony-E3 Stimulated Boredom

Sony Playstation E3 2014 Conference

After Sony stole the show during last year’s E3, brilliantly capitalizing on Microsoft’s higher price tag for the XBox One and controversial “always on” requirement – along with the subsequent (and loud) backlash from gamers and media alike – many have been wondering whether Sony would be able to repeat the achievement and continue the strong momentum that the PS4 has enjoyed.

Since last year’s E3, we have seen a complete reversal of Microsoft’s policy regarding the requirement that their console had to be connected to the internet at all times, along with a new price drop and Kinect-less bundles now being offered for the XBox One… but the damage may have already been done.

The PS4 has enjoyed a healthy sales lead in this new console generation (7 million, compared to the XBox One’s 5 million), especially in the all-important sold-through (actually sold to gamers) Vs. sold-in numbers (sold to retailers, where units are counted as ‘sold’ but many units still remain on store shelves).

Anyway, back to this year’s Sony E3 announcements:

Uncharted 4, Grand Theft Auto V on PS4, Bloodbourne and LittleBigPlanet 3 made their debuts, as did the announcement of new DLC for InFamous: Second Son and Resogun.

There was also brand new footage shown for the eagerly awaited Destiny, Far Cry 4, The Last of Us Remastered, Batman: Arkham Knight and Mortal Kombat X.

If you missed it, or simply want to relive the magic again, here is the full conference in its entirety.
