    Sony has their E3 Press conference set for 6PM Monday.. let the speculation begin! They've officially said 40 titles will be shown or detailed.
    Games we know for sure will be shown (and maybe playable): Destiny (Bungie), DriversClub (Evolution), The Evil Within (Tango Gameworks) Infamous: Second Son (SUcker Punch), The Last of Us (Naughty Dog)

    There is now rumor of an updated EverQuest exclusive to PS4.

    I am trying to get into this event. Regardless, I'll be covering E3 for HTF all week, posting the latest news and a complete wrap-up at the end of the week.

    I have to say, I'm a little disappointed by the console design. It's like the Xbox One but a little more of an attempt at being unique. Not bad, just not great, whereas I think the One is kind of bad.

    In terms of games (they're at the Watch_Dogs demo right now) I like that they're really saying "We have every kind of thing you could possibly want." MS was pushing "MGS5 is no longer a PS exclusive" while Sony is pushing "look at all these exclusives we have." Definitely a better/more diverse lineup thus far. And having indie devs play their games on stage was great.

    Indies make a difference. PixelJunk Monsters was one of my first, most loved ps3 games. These demos are taking too long, but they get the point across.

    No online checkin, ever. Sony explains their used game system.

    That video was good for a chuckle. Any pics of the console? And $399? Say good night, DeadBoX. Hard to believe, but MS managed to make all of the same mistakes for DBoX1 that SONY committed when they launched PS3; although, PS3 in the long run turned out to be the better value for the money. I won't say the same for DBoX1, nothing they integrated into that machine is worth any price, let alone 500 bucks.

    Saw a couple of pics of the system on the Amazon link provided by Sam. Kind of a conservative, boring look but still better than the MS design. Both units look like they will integrate easier into a home entertainment environment without standing out too much.

    XBOX fans are using the XBOX forum and referring to this as "The Red E3" in likeness to "The Red Wedding".. it's mayday over there..

    At times I have had a pretty low opinion of SONY and some of their practices. In this case, though, I have to say they learned something from their PS3 launch debacle and were locked and loaded for bear. They focused on games, not whether you could turn your television on and off with voice commands. They avoided the DRM pitfall and they brought the console in at the preferred price for gaming systems. I also like that on the Amazon link I could actually see what the specs for the PS4 were, everything except the HDD size. The XBOX1 specs were totally vague.

    SONY really delivered a one/two punch to MS's gut with their presentation.

    There is a real contrast to their philosophies it seems at this point. Sony seems to be saying we're here for gamers and we support developers, this is what we've heard you want, and we're going to give it to you, and MS is saying this is what we say you want, and your going to like it because you have no choice in the matter. I'm not saying Sony is an altruistic company and MS is evil, but boy if Sony didn't seize their opportunity and absolutely obliterate MS in the process. Sony FTW.

    I was at the show last night, and I have to say that the PS4 has won the next-gen console contest by not only beating Microsoft on its entry-level price point ($399 vs $499), but also putting to rest the used game controversy that Microsoft avoided mentioning earlier in the day. Jack Tretton's speech on used games brought the crowd just short of a standing ovation.
