Sony, fresh off a security breach and launching a brand-new portable, had a lot to address at Monday night's event. They certainly answered a lot of it.
Their portable, codenamed NGP, finally has a real moniker: the PlayStation Vita. It also has a price, and it's lower than most thought: $249 for the WiFi-only model. Sony showed off many of the launch titles last week, but they added a few to the list: a dungeon-crawler codenamed Ruin, versions of LittleBigPlanet and ModNation Racers and Street Fighter X Tekken. They've made an exclusive deal with AT&T to carry the $299 3G version of the device. You probably have an opinion about that.
For the PS3, the company revealed it's working on more than just Ratchet & Clank: All 4 One, Uncharted 3, Resistance 3, Twisted Metal and The Last Guardian. (Though that lineup alone is impressive.) The PSP God of War titles, as well as PS2 cult hits Ico and Shadow of the Colossus, will get HD remasters. The space-based sequel to Warhawk, Starhawk, promises a varied selection of battle environments. A fourth Sly Cooper game, dubbed Thieves in Time, was teased for a 2012 release.
The company doubled down on its Move peripheral, announcing Medieval Moves: Deadmund's Quest, a swordplay/archery title and showcasing a slate of games with supplementary support.
In an interesting surprise, Sony also announced a special 24" PlayStation-branded 3DTV. The monitor, which will cost $499, includes a pair of glasses and Resistance 3, and will support a special mode where two players can play locally seeing different images on the full screen.
The event also included an appearance by Kobe Bryant (promoting NBA 2K12).
