PlayStation at E3: 2001

26 0

Ask most people for their favourite E3 and they’ll likely pick one that was dominated by a single memory, be that the Metal Gear Solid 2: Sons of Liberty trailer or the unveiling of the PlayStation 3.
However, for sheer breadth of PlayStation games, E3 2001 is hard to top; the SCEA stand was burgeoning with titles that would go on to earn classic status.
From first party studios we had Naughty Dog’s latest project, Jak and Daxter: The Precursor Legacy; SOCOM: Navy Seals, which was one of the first online enabled PS2 games; and a stylish little action adventure known as ICO.

Third party publishers brought Final Fantasy X, Devil May Cry, Silent Hill 2, Tony Hawk’s Pro Skater 3 and Grand Theft Auto III.
It’s this incredible line-up of exclusives still early in the console’s life and its multimedia functionality that helped take the games system out of the bedroom and put so many PS2 systems in lounges worldwide.
