E3: Sony Conference Live Report

Going to be noting all the important and unimportant points from the conference. All times are CST.
- 8:10 New Project from Quantic Dream (developer of Heavy Rain) called Beyond: Two Souls
- 8:13 Trailer for Beyond is shown. CG looks really lifelike.
- 8:20 PlayStation All-Stars Battle Royale trailer. Uses music from Justice. Love those guys.
- 8:21 PlayStation All-Stars will also be available for Vita. Cross compatible between the two versions.
- 8:25 They're playing a match on stage while someone commentates on the match. Cute asian girl on stage, that must be noted.
- 8:27 Hey! It's Big Daddy. What a surprise.
- 8:29 LBP2 will be getting DLC that adds all sorts of new things like STICKERS and "Cross-Controller" functionality where you can use the PSVita as a controller for the PS3. Sounds familiar, don't it?
- 8:31 PSN games and PS+ talk.
- 8:32 They're giving out a free year of PS+ to everyone at their conference! Sounds familiar!
- 8:33 PSOne Classics coming to Vita such as Tomb Raider and Final Fantasy (Why wasn't this a thing already?)
- 8:35 Call of Duty: Black Ops: Declassified for Vita. Move over Peace Walkr, Portable GOTYAY.
- 8:36 Trailer for Assassin's Creed Liberation. When you link Liberation and Assassin's Creed 3 on PS3, you will unlock skins. White Vita bundle that comes with Assassin's Creed Liberation announced.
- 8:40 Pirate's Creed Assassin's Creed 3 gameplay shown. Boat simulation.
- 8:44 Assassin's Creed 3 bundled with PS3. Exclusive content for it.
- 8:45 Far Cry 3 has four player co-op and the guy demoing this game has a super deep voice.
- 8:47 They're really into this co-op thing. Nice.
- 8:49 Here comes the PlayStation Move games.
- 8:51 Well that was quick.
- 8:52 "Wonderbook" uses the PlayStation Eye for AR type games or something. Seems neat.
- 8:54 I honestly don't know what to call this but "Book of Spells" is a story in collaboration with J.K. Rowling come to life through the magic of the Wonderbook and the PlayStation Move controller.
- 8:59 Oh boy, this is embarassing. The lady doing the live demo is having problems casting a spell to open the gate.
- 9:03 This might be cool for the kiddies and that second girl is cute but this is a seriously awkward presentation. Glad it's over now.
- 9:05 They will be bringing some sort of PlayStation functionality to Android phones. That's totally new.
- 9:07 PlayStation Suite renamed to PlayStation Mobile.
- 9:09 God of War: Ascension gameplay. Looks like God of War alright.
- 9:18 Room is dark. Eventually voices are heard. Of course, it's a trailer The Last of Us since they haven't showed that off yet.

- 9:20 If Ellen Page is also in The Last of Us, is that game also MOVIE OF THE YEAR?
- 9:25 Demo makes it seem the guy isn't even playing the game. The voice overs were way too situational. At least you knew they were actually playing the Wonderbook because they were screwing it up live.
- 9:28 Show's over. Final Fantasy Versus XIII wasn't shown. We've got a new Duke Nukem Forever, ladies and gentlemen.
