  • Awesome! Can’t wait to listen to the podcast! Will there be a lot of surprises at E3 this year?!

  • That was a quick week!

    AND WOAH! WE HAVE MR PLAYSTATION: Brad Douglas!

    Seriously is he PlayStation or was that a typo?

  • bouncingsoul217

    The E3 anticipation is killing me. It’s the most wonderful time of the year here in LA.

  • so excited can’t wait till e 3

  • ALL I want from E3 is a PS4 price point and the release date ;-)

  • CoffeeKillquest

    No June ps+ listing? :(

  • CommandingTiger

    @6, that will be announced at e3, most likely.

  • CommandingTiger

    Can’t wait for E3, can’t wait to see what Sony will do with Gaikai and stuff.

  • CommandingTiger

    For Gaikai:
    You go online and view all the games available, select the game, try it out, buy it, or rent it for a limited amount of hours. You would get different prices for different play time.
    Say you rent for 10 hours or 35 hours, you could play it anytime until your play time is depleted.
    That being said, you could play it anytime during a year with a limited amount of play time.
    People with Work may not have the time during a week to play the game, that way, they could play it whenever they have the time.

    PS plus members could also get either additional time or a discount.
    You already know that PS Plus members gets a 1 or 2 hour free trial, that would stay there.

    The game developpers would decide the price and time lenght rental of the play time.
    They could give the opportunity to rent the games online while giving the developpers a cut of the cash.
    That way, it would support the gaming industry, while respecting the gamers

  • @ #6 The reason, I’m guessing, there was no PS+ talk is that Morgan Haro is over in Europe on vacation.

  • E3 will be were the gloves come off GO PLAYSTATION

  • Im checking the blog so much now waiting for any info on how to attend like last year. I’m coming from Toronto and already purchased flight. DO ITTTT

  • I have a question…What do you guys think Sony should do to boost the sales of the Vita because as it stands the sales aint that great for the Vita. Besides the Indie titles Sony has had crap for advertisement and hasn’t made much effort in supporting the best titles.

    Call of Duty: Black Ops Declassified bombed horribly, still no zombies on Vita thanks to Activision. Resistance failed..Killzone’s controls don’t sound that great for the Vita. so far it seems indie titles are the only thing standing in the way of the Vita’s demise…I own one myself and don’t want to see it fall off the face of the earth.

  • @CommandingTiger

    Interesting. But that GaiKai is pure speculation. If your comment was to @CoffeeKillQuest for wait to E3 for PS+, that would be too late, for their usual timeline. Monday would be the typical release of the Retail PS3 title, if they wait until E3 it could be possible for a surprise that they will replace the old titles all at once. But who knows.

  • i think the online gaming service should be subscription based with unlimited all game access. u could sell it two different ways:

    1. Charge $20 or $30 for the service alone

    2. You could tie it in with PS Plus and just add $10 to the price of a year or $5 to the 3 month package.

    See SONY, i’ve got this all planned out for you perfectly.

  • You guys should say all the releases that are coming out and THEN talk about them …. because i kinda get confused when you stop saying whats coming out and start talking about it and other things in between :(

  • i’d love to know who at sony thought that making a death ray manta game in order to troll people who don’t want DRM on ps4 was funny or a good idea. trolling your customers is the dumbest thing i’ve ever heard of a company doing. the one thing you forgot about trolls is that most times people have no real way to get back at them but that’s not the case this time. i have a vita, 4 ps3’s, and got the first on launch day as i was planning to do with the ps4, and ps plus and that “joke” pissed me off to the point that i don’t care what’s on your system as i will not buy a single product you make ever again. goodbye.

  • Dear Brad Douglas: Your Kaneda jacket makes me ridiculously jealous!

  • sad to hear nothing good is coming out on psn store next week (not interested in Remember Me). Please Sony stop with the psp games already. Vita won’t grow if you are still supporting the other dead format.

    I hope the June PS Plus games are as good as the E3 PS Plus game collection lineup from last year.

    P.S. wish there was a timestamp on where the psn store release talks start and end on the blogcast. Its the only thing i care about. Its kinda frustrating hearing Brad’s boring japanese stories in between the release lineups. It just gets in the way.

  • Good episode like always guys, keep it up. Might I suggest for the E3 ep. getting the ol’ gang (Sid, Jeff, Rey, and Nick) back together?

  • Where’s the plus update? A heads up would be nice since you all made a big production of that gimmek awhile back, when it was introduced. Feel cheated a bit

  • @sid will there be a playstation meet up like last year for the sony press confrence?

  • just wanted to enter Spec Ops The Line as my gem. i started playing the first chapters and i just couldn’t feel connected to the game. i remember what one of you guys said on a previous pod cast which was to continue playing the game and it would get better. best advise ever. i have to say that this game had one of the best story in a game that i have seen. i would also like to say that my favorite game of all time has to be red dead redemption. as always, keep up the great job.

  • LordKingMushroom

    Hey guys, is the PlayStation blog gonna have a E3 Sony press conference meetup this year allowing fans to attend, it would be cool. its Sony’s Big reveal !

  • SHOEMAN! WHERE is today’s podcast? you can’t deprived us of our blogcast just days before E3! unless you’ve saving all your ammunition for the big reveal, but it would’ve been good to get some tidbits days before the event.

  • jesus my grammar was terrible, I guess it just further highlights this pre-E3 tension running through my veins.

  • Que nos traera playstation en esta E3???
