Tidbits from today's SCEE PlayStation Day [update]

1:46 PM on 05.06.2008 // Samit Sarkar

If you’re reading this and are anywhere near London, why aren’t you at The O2? Sony Europe is currently holding its “PlayStation Day” there, so — oh, wait, never mind; it’s press-only. Apparently, they’ve got a number of upcoming PS3 games playable there. Anyway, the press conference that kicked off the event ended recently, and we’ve got a few juicy morsels of Sony-related information for you, courtesy of Eurogamer’s liveblog.

Up above, you can view the first trailer for EA DICE’s Mirror’s Edge, a first-person action/adventure title. It’s got a female protagonist who reminded me of Jade from Beyond Good & Evil at first glance. I’m worried about running and jumping around a city without being able to see where my feet are (unless I look down), but it certainly looks impressive so far — according to the trailer, it’s all in-game footage.

Unfortunately, there’s also some bad news. Trigger-happy PS3 owners will be sad to hear this: Reeves offhandedly announced that Guerrilla’s highly anticipated FPS, Killzone 2, has been delayed yet again; it will now be out in February 2009. Another PS3 exclusive title that gamers have been waiting for with bated breath is LittleBigPlanet. Sadly, we’re going to have to wait just a tad longer; it’s been pushed back a month into October.

Early on in the show, Reeves introduced Kaz Hirai; he talked about a number of things, including PlayStation Home. He stressed that he would not release the Second Life-esque online world until he’s “completely happy with it.” Apparently, Home will be “open to the public towards the end of the year” — I just hope he’s talking about the full product as opposed to a public beta.

Hit the jump for more.

[Via Eurogamer — thanks, wardrox!]

[Update: As a clarification, there’s no official word yet on whether the LittleBigPlanet delay applies to Europe only, or is a worldwide delay. For now, we’re just going to assume that it’s being delayed in Europe alone.]

Reeves also brought out Insomniac’s Ted Price, who gave an in-depth discussion of the multiplayer component (60 players!!!1!) of Resistance 2. The idea, he says, is to create smaller, more intense pitched skirmishes within the larger scope of the battlefield. MyResistance.net will also be upgraded with “the kind of social features you'll find in sites like Facebook.” Next up was Paul Hollywood, the creative director of MotorStorm 2, who hyped up that game pretty well. For a link to the first screens of the game that aren’t scans from a magazine, as well as an interview with the game’s director, hit up Nick’s post from earlier today.

Here’s one last intriguing bit: Reeves announced that more PS3s have been sold in Europe than 360s, which is pretty impressive when you consider the fifteen-month head start that Microsoft’s machine had. As for the delays, they’re sad to hear about, but as Dtoid tipster extraordinaire Joe Burling puts it, “I always welcome a delay if that means it will be a better game.” What do you guys think?

Cam you believe that hot dog's with cheese in them exist? That is the grossest monstrosity to ever grace the market. The cheese belongs on top of the dog people! All over it!

Holy cow, Final Fantasy VII was actually REALLY good! The PS4/PC "cheats" really helped my enjoyment. Check out my Cblog for extended thought, and what do you think of FFVII with a 2016 outlook?

Hope my Flash Sale sense is correct this week. I was hoping for more than a Ubisoft sale. Also, is it just me, or does it seem like Ubisoft games are on sale every damn week?

Just started Pillars of Eternity and I'm elated I can play as a treeman druid! Which brings me one step closer to a game that lets me play as an Ent. Besides that walking tree simulator and WoW, are there any decent games where you can play as an Ent?

Overnight, I dreamed Destructoid existed as an old-timey collectibles shop. Quickposts graced the shelves as paintings, available for purchase; the number of faps on a post directly equaled its price. Video games and VG accessories also were up for sale.

Usually I'm not comfortable showing stuff off like this, but this is something I've been working on for college work, and it's the first thing I feel like is at least halfway worth showing.
