    E3 2006

    Alright, the annual E3 (Electronic Entertainment Expo) has started, and your friendly neighborhood Hermie is here to bring you the latest news!



    First up: Sony's giant press conference.


    For the most part, it was unveiling of different games for the PS3, including a ninja game that caught my eye


    Then, it is unveiled that it will cost a whopping 499$ for 20GB version and 599 for 60GB!



    Next, the most shocking event of them all.

    The controller features motion sensoring, Wii style.





    Read a summary of the press conference here

    That's not all (taken from joystiq)
    if you choose not to upgrade...

    * You lose 40GB (20GB base vs. 60GB)
    * You lose HDMI output
    * You lose MemoryStick / SD / CompactFlash slots
    * You lose 802.11 b/g wireless

    But yeah I like the "yugiou" style card game thingy as well as how the controller is motion sensored. The new FF has caught my eye as well.... but other than that not really that interesting . I'm looking forward to the wii though...

    I can't wait!!! It looks MUCH funner than FFXII... and that game has already taken 100 hours of my life...

    Couldn't they wait until Nintendo's "oh so brilliant" innovation had at least passed the "play three hours without stop without tiring your arm" test? I wonder if this "future of gaming" will prove to be entertaining enough... ( on this aspect that is ).

    "As for date and price, we think its best to keep those details quiet a little longer. You will play Wii in the fourth quarter of 2006."[br]Posted at: May 10, 2006, 12:48:30 AM_________________________________________________Twilight Princess--"It is by far the best Zelda game we have ever made, also the most beautiful." Zelda will launch alongside Wii. First look coming right now. Nate and Bill from NOA going to play Zelda on the Wii. Movement on Nunchuk. Weapons, items are mapped to d-pad on remote.
    [br]Posted at: May 10, 2006, 12:53:54 AM_________________________________________________ When you shoot an arrow, you'll hear the bowstring twang at your ear from the speaker in the remote. Other developers also have a lot of ideas for how to use this speaker. There's a built-in rumble feature. Sony gave this up for their six-axis motion detection.

    [note]it was announced a little while ago that the 'mote will have a speaker for gun shots, whip cracks, and such effects.[br]Posted at: May 10, 2006, 12:57:01 AM_________________________________________________Link's iron boots return too, this time used in combination with magnets. They show Link using the iron boots and a magnetic ceiling to travel around a room.

    As for the PS3's new motion-sensitive controller? "We tried that five or six years ago with the Freestyle Pro," he said. "It worked well for a few games, but it wasn't a general purpose controller. It seems as though they were taking a page from Nintendo's book [in reference to the Wii's controller], but Nintendo is more innovative."
    Thanks for the compliment, mr microsoft representative ^^, you are very right
    ( though that first part is exactly the point where i am not that happy about the Wiiiiiiiiiiiiii's controller... )

    Why would you need a keyboard/mouse for RTS games? Other consoles never had any problem with using only a controller...

    Of which most were announced a long time ago ^^[br]Posted at: May 09, 2006, 09:14:55 PM_________________________________________________Small correction, i believe the game was Yoshi's Island 2... but i could be mistaken ( i've watched a part of the conference )

    RED STEEL looks just AWESOME... and i must admit the Wii tennis game looked quite nice, even though i was a bit skeptical at first. I wonder if people have enough space to multiplayer though... ( without breaking things in their livingroom )
