GamePron Feature Sony Keynote E3 2011

Sony‘s pre-E3 conference started off on the right note, with President Jack Tretton apologising to gamers and fans for “the elephant in the room”. By addressing that bit bright and early, the stage was set for the NGP to finally be revealed properly. The codename was lifted, the lights dimmed and Kazuo Hirai officially named the PlayStation Vita as the follow-up to the PSP. Sony also showed off new bits and pieces for both Uncharted 3 and BioShock Infinite for PS3, but – somewhat predictably – all eyes were on the new handheld. Coming in the next year or so is a new action RPG called Ruin, as well as a collection of PS3 favourites making the leap to the Vita. ModNation Racers looks very cool indeed, and it should be no surprise that everybody’s favourite mascot – SackBoy from LittleBigPlanet would also be popping up in portable mode in the not-so-distant future.

Player Attack News

Everybody has a voice, but everybody's talking about the same thing. There's a lot of noise out there, but Player Attack aims to cut through the fluff - or, sometimes, fill you in on the fluff you might have missed. We like indie releases, breathtaking concept art, and tie-in book launches. We love cheap thrills, a good soundtrack and finding innovative uses for gaming technology. All of that is reflected on the site, updated each day with stories and details about what is going on in the games industry, always paying attention to stories other outlets ignore.
