SPOnG caught up earlier this week with the good people of Sony Computer Entertainment Europe for a quick chat about all things PlayStation and we are pleased to let you know that the frustrating post-E3 wait for proper information on our PlayStation future is just about to end, with the first in a series of major announcements being made this coming Monday from Leipzig.
We can assure you that this first unveiling will, shall we say, be something you are very unlikely to have foreseen, coming from way out of leftfield. Suffice to say it brought a smile to our face as we think it will do yours. Check in here first thing on Monday when we’ll be able to disclose the full details of this announcement, as well as picking up the first tasty news droppings from all the other publishers at Leipzig.
It would also seem that Sony has seriously taken on board the many criticisms targeted at the company following a poorly received E3 PlayStation 3 showing and done what it does best – gone into lockdown mode whilst its development and marketing teams get on with the serious, hard work of ensuring that both the PS3’s technical offering and the marketing message are both spot on for the looming 17th November launch.
Be here to first to get the latest news on all things PlayStation – including the ways in which SCEE is planning to communicate the PS3’s (much-maligned) pricing strategy and the advantages of Blu-ray to the masses of still-to-be-won-over consumers.
Plus, and most importantly, the games. SPOnG will have all the news and latest opinion from our guys on the ground regarding the PS3’s all-important launch line-up of games.
Oh, and what about the PS3’s online offering? Last we heard there was some bizarre idea to call it PooS (P-infinity-S)
. We're still not entirely sure if this wasn’t just a little joke Sony cooked up as a dig at Nintendo’s daftly named Wii console. Again, watch this space for full, detailed news on the future of PS3 online gaming as we get it.
