CES 2009: See Sony’s Booth

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

How big is Sony’s booth at the Consumer Electronics Show this year? So big they’re filming episodes of Jeopardy! on-site (no Trebek sightings for me yet, but that will hopefully change today).

While the vast majority of the acreage is packed with Bravias, VAIOs, Handycams, and awesome audio setups (find out more at, a number of current and upcoming PlayStation titles made the trip to Vegas. Here’s a quick tour we shot last night during a preview event for those of you not among the 140,000 projected CES attendees:

In addition, colleague Brian Dunn snapped lots of pics of the Sony booth at large last night as things were being set up – you can see
the full gallery here.

Better yet, developers Guerrilla Games (Killzone 2), Sucker Punch Productions (inFamous), and SCEA Bend Studios (Resistance Retribution) are also in Vegas for CES. I’ll be grilling them on their presentations for you in some future posts, so keep an eye out for those.

As far as that PlayStation Home announcement Jack Buser mentions in the video – you’ll find out about that soon.

Wow – you guys really know how to put on a kick a** setup! Wish I was there but the video and photo gallery is awesome!

Hope you guys can elaborate on not just Playstation items but any new HDTVs or accessories that will complement the PS3!

@ 36

Are we talking about the same console? The PS3 does a lot of cool things but you are exaggerating way too much. I love my PS3 but what Sony promised when first they announced the PS3 still haven’t been seen. Third party softwares looks identical or worse to our console due to poor porting. And yes the first video of Killzone 2 was CGI. As for PS HOME only like 3-5 people on my friends list logs into Home every now and then. Home has some incredible potential. They need a lot more activities in order to make it a success. Not being able to launch directly into any game at any given time is a major problem. I love my PS3 but, I’m not sure where you are getting your facts from. Sony has a lot of work to do. Two years after the PS3’s launch Sony is now starting to build a face for PSN. Now we have eight more years to go. Where do you get PS3 and Netflix from?

Check out this comparison video of what Sony promised when the PS3 was announced to what they’ve delivered so far. Let me know what you think.

So these OLED tvs, the ones I’ve always seen are pretty small. It wouldn’t be a good choice to get one, and use it for gaming just yet, would it?

Great job Jeff! I wish I could be there.

P.S. I’m really looking forward to the 3D surprises in tomorrows press event :D

@58 you even have to agree that killzone 2 look alot better then any game on the 360 ? and am not going to bring up lbp or gow 3. so if you a sony fan you should be celebrating what they did over the two year . 1 360 only soild 8 million more console then ps3 and it took them 3 year and a price cut to have that small lead. 2 xbl and psn have the same amount of online member this will be bad news for ms because more and more people see psn if not the same but better then xbl. if sony do what they did last year by selling more console then ms untill they drop the price sony will be second in console sell by the middle of this year . am not trying to start stuff or a crazed ps3 fan but you have to realize that with no killer line up any time soon and you all ready show us your hand and price cut your system there nothing else ms can do to compete that being saied i dont think sony or ms happy being second . also if anyone waiting for a ps3 price cut you may be waiting and may happen in late 2010.

I hope you are going to do a special event in home maybe too late for ces but e3 or any major event, like they did for the japan server of home when they recreated the TGS booth. I liked playing the game launching feature for GT5 in the arcade driving seats.

Dang, you guys were showing a lot of stuff off with the PS3. Can’t wait for KILLZONE2 and Fat Princess! Wish you could have showed some of the 3D GT5Prolouge and WipEout in this vid, it definitely seemed like some pretty cool tech. How come you couldn’t have made a bang like this at I/ITSEC in Orlando!!? =p

I don’t think 3D should be done unless you can do it without some sort of mask or glasses. Besides, people who already wear glasses would be screwed because they would have to choose to either see clearly or see in blurry 3D vision.

Thanks for keeping us informed Jeff! Please grill Guerilla about why they didn’t include OFFLINE MULTIPLAYER. Thanks again!

Mitsugeta said:

Jeff, please, pleeeeeeeeeeeeease make it so this: is apart of the TV Ad campaign for Killzone 2.

T_T Or at least put it up on Playstation Store in 1080p. Personally I think thats the most compelling video of this game I’ve seen yet and has totally sold me on getting the game day 1.

“Please grill Guerilla about why they didn’t include OFFLINE MULTIPLAYER.”
And also, announce the KILLZONE2 Collector’s Edition already!! =]

Not really any useful innovations at CES this year. Sony’s Home Audio just keeps going south. I remember when big bad Billy said game consoles will be a thing of the past only years latter launching a console, lol. I always though that the receiver would replace the home PC and link all mobile devices and components together. Now it’s look how easy it is to upload this. Transfer it here to here, double back, erase, triple back, where the hell did it go now. One device to rule them all.

I would be really nice if SONY would let us see this booth in HOME!!! Hopefully they will for E3 2009.

SONY im angry at the fact there not been any new visualizations. i waited in the cold when PS3 came to WALMART in la. i love it and the fact theres been alot of really good updates. im a true SONY fan i own a SONY ERICSSON w810I HDTV 51inch a PSP a CYBERSHOT CAMERA and also a SONY LAPTOP. SONY is the best. please for the love of god add new visualizations revise the web browser to adapt to web pages better. and kick the other competition in the butt.
