Sony Gamers Day 2007: The big stuff

2:04 AM on 05.17.2007 // Robert Summa

For the past two days, I have been stationed in San Diego for Sony's Gamers Day 2007 -- a major Sony event showcasing what the company has in store for all of us this year. And believe me, with the amount of new announcements, footage, and impressions that will be unleashed throughout tonight, you'll understand why it took two days to do.

I will be breaking down my impressions of each major title I played (some of which you have never heard of) and do a wrap-up of the event as a whole, but before I do, I wanted to share some major announcements to come out of the Sony camp that you should be well aware of. Here are a few and I'll have more after the jump:

• Sony will release SOCOM Confrontation as a multiplayer-only title for the PlayStation 3. It will support up to 32 players online with full clan support, etc.

• Sony is developing a bowling title that uses the SIXAXIS -- much like Wii bowling.

• Nearly all major first-party titles will be coming out in the fall.

• A Warhawk public beta will begin on May 25 with sign-ups available now. 

More news after the jump. 

Other important announcements:

Warhawk will be available to download over the PlayStation Network but will also be available at retail on Blu-ray. The retail package of Warhawk will include the game with extras such as developer interviews and demos. The pack will also include a Bluetooth headset for the PS3. 

• The PS3 version of Stranglehold will include the original movie, Hard Boiled. 

• A Resistance: Fall of Man add-on pack with two maps will come this fall; More MotorStorm content will also be on the way. 

LittleBigPlanet will have a demo released this fall with a planned final release for just after Christmas. 

• There are more than 90 titles coming to the PS3 from 3rd-party developers this year, with half being for the PlayStation Network. 

• Peter Dille, Senior VP Marketing for Sony, said that Devil May Cry 4 was developed for the PlayStation 3 and is being ported down to other formats. 

• PSP hardware sales are up 40%, with software sales up 150%. There will be 140 PSP games coming out this year with nine being 1st-party exclusives.

Robin secretly controls the boobs of Nintendo characters. She stole the Xenoblade boobs and took the Fatal Frame lingerie for herself. #DammitRobin [img][/img]

I was just playing Skyrim and wondered if anyone has come up with Fallout 3/New Vegas weapon mods for Skyrim? Fighting dragons with assault weapons sounds almost necessary. [img][/img]

For an early Christmas present I got my girlfriend Wooly World to go with our new Wii U. I've gotten more joy out of how adorable all the character designs are than I'd like to admit.

And so I purchased not just Hyper Dimension Neptunia, but also its sequel and Grim Fandango Remastered in the Steam Sale, and it isn't even the end of the first day. God damnit. At least refunds are thing a now.

I'm currently writing a review for a mobile game, but only because I'm enjoying the hell out it. I'm honestly enjoying it far more than Puzzles and Dragons.

Damn, I think I'm Bruce Willis from Unbreakable. Just fell of a 12-foot ladder and all I got was a little scratch on my finger.

After I finish Fallout 4 I'm thinking of 100%ing Skyrim and then installing a TON of dinosaur mods on it.

4 hours into Hotline Miami 2 and I'm finding it just as fun as the original. So far it's a good balance between frustration and satisfaction. Still have no idea what the story is about.

1. Start playing Ocarina of Time again. 2. Start having fun. 3. Discover fishing area. 4. Stop having fun.

A 2-d hovercraft platforming exploration game just came out today. Have fun collecting the coins! My record so far is 140.

Holy shit the new David Bowie video/song is just lovely.

So many people angry at Play-Asia right now. Totally not exactly the kind of backlash Tecmo were trying to avoid by not releasing the game here in the first place.

If you're a UK kid there's a Wii U 32 GB Wind Waker Premium Pack on Amazon for £240. It says sale... I dunno how much of a saving that is. You tell me.

Community Question: Not strictly speaking video game-related, but screw it. Team Captain America or Team Iron Man?
