E3 2010

SCEA Talks Lack of The Last Guardian

One game absence that was definitely noticed during Sony’s E3 press conference yesterday was The Last Guardian. The latest title from legendary game creator Fumito Ueda was entirely missing, so far, from this year’s E3. To address the noticeable concern among the Sony masses, two representatives from the SCEA spoke today, and explained why Sony decided to withhold any new information or media.

Talking to 1UP was SCEA’s Scott Rohde. Within the comment, Rohde cited Sony’s philosophy of withholding media and information until they and the development studio feel comfortable with the progress of the game.

“The best way I can answer that is something that Sony does — and we’re very proud of this — is that we’re going to ship a game when we feel it’s ready.

“When it’s fully baked and when it’s ready. And with everything else that we’re showing at this show, we announced a million different things at this show, we just didn’t feel that the timing was right to show that product at this show.

“We’re going to show it when it’s ready, and when we think that it’s worthy to show based on everything else that developer has done.”

Don’t fret! That doesn’t mean there won’t be any new information coming out this year. There is still a strong possibility something new will come up at this year’s Tokyo Game Show or gamescom, according to SCEA’s Ron Eagle:

“And there’s more dates on the calendar than just E3. Read into that what you will. There’s nothing official that we can tell you other than The Last Guardian continues in production and we can’t wait to show you what Ueda-San has been up to. The game looks fantastic.”

We here at PlayStation LifeStyle are sadden about the lack of The Last Guardian at E3. However, given Sony’s response and reasoning to the ‘crisis’, it is perfectly understandable and we would rather Fumito Ueda and his team take all the time in the world, so that they truly create a spectacular title.

Sony Pledges Extensive 3D Support

With Kaz Hirai on the stage, he announced to the eager E3 audience Sony’s unflinching 3D support. By the end of March, 2011, the PlayStation 3 will have 20 natively 3D-designed titles. That’s right, designed with 3D in mind, not just patched on later. This is quite significant as it goes to show Sony is truly supporting this new evolution of the industry.

IronStar Movement was the outlet to catch the famed developer. There is much significance in this sighting. First off, Jaffe has repeatedly claimed he, or his game, would not be coming to E3. So, why would he be at E3, if he wasn’t there to show off his new game?
