Behind the scenes at SCEA Judges Day

Jeff Rubenstein's Avatar Posted by Sr. Social Media Manager

For much of today, the people who will determine E3’s “Best in Show” awards are holed up in the penthouse of Hollywood’s Roosevelt Hotel. They’ll spend hours with some of PlayStation’s top upcoming titles – and you’ll be reading about their impressions starting later this afternoon.

today's menu

Much like last week’s PlayStation Day in Europe, games like Resistance 2, LittleBigPlanet, Killzone 2, SOCOM Confrontation and Motorstorm Pacific Rift will be on display. In addition, some eagerly anticipated PSN titles are playable, like PixelJunk Eden and Siren: Blood Curse.

Unlike Europe’s PlayStation Day, E3 Judges’ Day is a much more intimate affair. Therefore, we’ll do our best to pull back the curtain on the event. Throughout the day we’ll be posting Twitter updates and pointing you to coverage you’re sure to find compelling.

Attached are some pics I took this morning – if you’re a gamer and the sight of these future titles doesn’t get you drooling – kindly check your pulse.

Motorstorm Pacific Rift

See you this afternoon.

@Money1 If you think you look crazy on 36 and 37 then you probably don’t want to look at what is 48 at the moment. XD

I have one question…is Motorstorm PR going to be in 1080p….unlike motorstorm 1? I don’t have motorstorm partly because of this (and because of no split-screen), so i just hope that full hd goodness will be included! Thanks!

Hello Jeff! I’m glad to see you hear responding to so many comments, very cool of you.

I know you can’t reveal any specifics to us yet, but I was wondering if you know anything about what Naughty Dog might be working on right now? I imagine it’d be a sequel to … something. When do you figure we can learn more about their project? Hopefully E3!

Also of great importance to me is InFamous! I am a huge fan of all the games made by Sucker Punch, in particular the Sly Cooper series, so if you know anything at all about when we’ll be seeing more of their game, please, do tell!

Thanks a bunch.

    Um, Feb 9 2008 has passed us by. 2009.

Yes, Ladies and Gentlemen, EvoAnubis is back! I sent you all postcards from Liberty City; did you get them?

Anyway, looks like I missed a lot during my vacation. Siren: BC looks amazing (I got the demo from my JPN account) and I never got to play it on my PS2, so I am looking forward to this a lot.

I agree with Phoenix; Linger in Shadows, judging from what I’ve seen thus far, looks to be a very beautiful and interesting game. Can’t wait to hear more about it.

Jeff, any word on when we’re going to hear something about inFamous? Or more specifically, Sucker Punch? I’d love to hear that they’re wrapping up the inFamous project and starting on a new Sly Cooper game, and also I REALLY want to be playing inFamous.

What is today? lol ;)

Anyway, PJ:Eden looks cool but I also dont get the concept of the game yet. Anyone know of any trailers or anything to see what you do? Thanks

    For the record, I shot a video with two of the producers today. Seeing a trailer of the game really doesn\’t explain much. It\’s really frackin\’ cool and I hope the video we\’ll publish next week will make that clearer.

SloRacer1080 said:

Nevermind there is one on shacknews.com I should search first ask questions later.


May 16th, 8:19 pm

Jeff me good buddy, how she cuttin? Pretty good I hope. These shots are sweet. Please try to get a new Socom Confrontation screenshot or two. Need something to fill my 40inch till the real thing. Keep up the great work. Wish I was there to be a Judge. Oh yeah. More Canadian contests please.


May 16th, 8:22 pm

pardon me for double posting. But “Frackin”, now who’d ya steal that one off of hmmmm? C’est Moi.

Hey Jeff,
Any word on a LBP demo down the road.That title is going to be a big seller.

Also,will there be any video of the event downloadable on the psn store next week.I downloaded all of the video content from the SCEE reigon and it was very informative.

“Today is all about the games mentioned (the full list is in that shot I threw up on flickr this morning).”

Ah, too bad. Well, it’s all good info anyway! Insomniac looks like they’re once again going to show why they are the best small developers in the business with Resistance 2, MotorStorm: PR is looking very, very nice (I just played the first one 3 weeks ago, and was blown away), and KZ2 . . . well, hell: just LOOK AT IT!

Not to mention my most anticipated game this fall, namely LBP. It scares me knowing the hours I will pour into that game.

Well, my Whiz Mobile phone is alerting me that I have a text message, so I think my presence is required in Star Junction. Be cool, all. And thanks for the reply, Jeff.

any word on when Linger in shadows is coming out?

They really need to fix the camera on Siren: Blood Curse. It is terrible and will ruin the game. I don’t know who does the testing on these games but it seems they are too close to the project to see its serious flaws. IGN also commented on the terrible camera in their preview. I really hope this kind of feedback from the blog gets back to developers while games are in the development cycle.


May 17th, 8:08 am

will there be any gameplay footage realeased for motorstorm 2?
I am so stoked for that game

pdias_92 said:

You can check out IGN, they got like 4 offscreen gameplay vids

These are just the already announced 1st Party games. I cant wait until E3 to find out more about the future of PSN and future games.
