E3 2011: It’s An Exciting Time to be a Member of the PlayStation Family

Over the years on the E3 stage, we’ve talked about the “PlayStation family” – our enthusiastic fans and loyal supporters around the world. This year, “PlayStation family” has taken on an increasingly important meaning. I personally want to thank each and every one of you for your patience during the recent PlayStation Network outage. We are extremely grateful for your passion and loyalty. The PlayStation community is stronger and more vibrant than ever and, as detailed a few minutes ago during the E3 press conference, we’re going to thank you for your loyalty with new gaming and entertainment experiences on PlayStation and PSN that will continue to affirm our leadership.

When we raised the curtain on our next-generation portable device this past January, we felt the waves of excitement that rippled throughout the industry. As Kazuo Hirai just announced onstage at E3, the official name of this revolutionary portable entertainment system is PlayStation Vita. PlayStation Vita with Wi-Fi will be available starting at $249. AT&T will be the exclusive U.S. wireless provider for PlayStation Vita, ensuring that you remain connected to content and your friends on the go. We also revealed a plethora of exciting new software titles, including Hot Shots Golf, Hustle Kings, LittleBigPlanet, Little Deviants, ModNation Racers, Reality Fighter, Ruin (working title) Sound Shapes, Street Fighter X Tekken, Super Stardust Delta, UNCHARTED: Golden Abyss, and Wipeout 2048. It’s a fantastic lineup…and that’s just the beginning. Take a look at the new PlayStation Vita.

The era of 3D has officially arrived and there are over 50 million PS3 units around the world that deliver the true 3D experience across games, movies and TV. Our 3D gaming portfolio is rapidly expanding with nearly 40 titles worldwide, including the upcoming UNCHARTED 3: Drake’s Deception that promises to take 3D immersion to new heights. Today we also introduced a new PlayStation branded, high definition 24-inch 3D Display, which will be available later this year. The 3D Display comes with 3D glasses, an HDMI cable and the highly anticipated Resistance 3 game, to give you everything necessary to jump into the world of 3D, at a very affordable price. The monitor features advanced technology that allows two people playing a game to see individual, unique, full-screen images of gameplay rather than a split-screen image. We know PlayStation fans are always at the cutting-edge of innovation and we think you’ll love this immersive 3D experience that is optimized for gaming.

Last year, we introduced you to PlayStation Move and the reception was phenomenal. To date, we’ve sold 8.8 million units globally and there will be nearly 200 Move supported software titles available globally by the end of this year. And we keep adding to the experience. The Sharp Shooter attachment has been flying off of the shelves and has quickly become a must-have for anyone wanting to be placed into the thick of the battle playing one of our first-person shooters like Killzone 3, SOCOM 4 or, later this year, Resistance 3. PlayStation will also continue to expand our Move software line-up for the casual gaming enthusiast, including our latest title for your next party at home with friends – Everybody Dance.

Our publishing partners really help set the PlayStation experience apart with amazing exclusive content only on PS3. For the army of fans of the popular first-person shooter Bioshock franchise, Ken Levine was onstage to announce that Bioshock Infinite will support PlayStation Move and that they are working on a Bioshock title for PlayStation Vita. We also unveiled exclusive content on a number of new games on PS3, including Battlefield 3, Dust, Need for Speed: The Run, Saint’s Row: The Third, and SSX: Deadly Descents.

The PlayStation brand has become synonymous with interactive entertainment and today we’re delighting more consumers across more platforms than ever before. Across hardware, software and PlayStation Network, our platform is stronger and more relevant than ever, delivering breakthrough experiences that consumers crave. There’s a lot to be excited about in 2011 and we look forward to sharing more news with you in the months ahead as valued members of our PlayStation family.

For those of you who were not able to join us at the Los Angeles Memorial Sports Arena this evening, you can download the full presentation. Once again, thank you for your support.

  • The_Johnny_Rome

    I loved the presentation this year, way better than xbox! But I did miss a cameo from your very special VP Kevin Butler!

  • Just wanted to say that Sony is back to being my *only* source of entertainment (after a recent “diversification”)

    Not only am I getting the PSVita, I’m also getting a 3D Sony TV for when Uncharted 3 comes.

    Good show!

  • Playstation FOREVA!!

  • OVERDOSE665

    Great job SONY!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

  • Touchscreen tech needs to die off already.

  • Apple screwed over Iphone owners for years by AT&T now sony? didn’t you all learn anything from their screw up!

  • nocrodracul

    i was hopping for more but this shall do !

  • Did you guys name it Vita just so you could pair it with your PS minis? Vitaminis?

  • Cygnus-Saga

    AT&T?? HUH? :(

  • Where’s Agent, Final Fantasy Versus XIII, and The Last Guardian? These games have gone MIA.

    Anyway good conference guys, I would have put something at the end to blast it away though. Looking foward to Uncharted 3

  • We’ll see how it part takes…..But I might get the PS Vita.

  • Trucidation

    Anything north of $200 is too much for any handheld, sorry.

  • @Shuklar No they named it Vita because it meant “life”

  • A couple questions:

    1) will the Playstation Party feature that was shown on the vita come to the PS3?

    2) How much will a 3G only plan for the vita cost (from AT&T)

  • Let me get this… Cross-chat for psVita but not ps3?

  • Still no PS3 cross game chat ugh

  • RecklessCracka69

    ITS BEEN ON THE FRONT OF THE BLOG SHARE FOR TWO YEARS AND YOU DO NOTHING!!!!!!!!!!!!!

  • xbox failed and nintendo 3ds got pwned

  • Great job Sony. Much better than Microsoft’s presentation.

    Two Questions:

    1.Will we be seeing any new MW3 footage today or in the next few days?

    2. Will you be implenting the cross-chat feature from Vita to PS3

    Will be definately picking up the NGP…. erm PS VITA!

  • FYI Jack,
    SOCOM is not a First Person Shooter.

    And while on the topic, do us a favor and listen to the fans on your PlayStation Share site and make a SOCOM 2 HD Remake OR some sort of multi-player compilation (SOCOM Legacy).

  • blueDragon666

    Im just disappointed to not see Kevin =(

  • They planned cross-chat on psVita not on PS3 that’s why!

  • A 24 inch TV? uhhhhhhhhhhhhh

  • Jack,
    Great show, but no info on HOME? VERY SURPRISING! Also, no MW3 footage, or G. Recon, or even GTA 5….feels very odd not hearing Rockstar’s name at all the whole night

  • SONY I think you are making it way too cheap for the customers at 249.99 seriously you cant just release console with a ten times better processor and graphics than the project cafe, and add 5,000,0000 more features to it and then say its only 249, well i think its plausible because sony does everything

  • Arcadian_Rebel

    Good stuff! Just one question: why is there cross-game voice chat for the PSP2 but not PS3?

  • starfox_6456303

    Don’t like the name “Vita” but awsome device regardless

  • R3DhairDNTcare

    Sony i love you and im forever loyal! haaa

  • Motion_Blue

    Did its job, excited for the PSV. Dust514 looks really interesting too.

    Not sure how i feel about the 3G in Vita. I’m not in America, and don’t feel like losing an arm and leg for access.

  • Hallo Jack,

    i really love the playstation and i also love gaming, but im a little bit disappointed about the E3 conference.

    Where is cross over chat ??? :(

    If you can’t do it on ps3, than please say it please !

  • thepatriots

    Sony what were you thinking with AT&T… just makes no sense. Also what about 4G? 3G is too slow for gaming. And will be old tech in 2 years. What about that 10 year life cycle… slipping…

  • 名誉 ~ Honor

  • dragonleader33

    Seriously though PS3 needs Cross Game Chat now…you have it to the Vita so no excuses at this point.

  • Find it hilarious that this machine have cross-game chat but the PS3 don’t.
    The price point is a lot less than what i was expecting.
    Why At&t? People actually boooooed you guys on stage when you announce that.

  • Guardianwar

    why do we get a party chat (cross game chat) for plastation vita and not for the ps3, yah your giving it to the fans that want it but not on the console they want it on, to experience this I must buy the vita?? I find that lame and Im kinda heartbroken its not on my home console.

  • cali_bulldog

    LIKE WTF!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! WHERE’S THE MW3 PREVIEW OR DEMO!!! ALL UR GAME PREVIEWS U SHOWED ON E3 SUCKED… MW3 GONNA MAKE MORE MONEY THAN ALL THOSE PUT TOGETHER.
    VERY DISAPPOINTED PS3

  • Why weren’t there anything for RPGs? No Dark Souls, WKC2, not even a final fantasy game mentioned (only one split second clip). Seemed like nothing but shooters/ps move games. Also, game chat for vita but no mentioning of the service for the ps3? Looks like there’s been another elephant in the room.

    No KB :(

  • xxnike629xx

    Aw Jack Tretton… Why the hell is Sony teaming with AT&T for PS Vita’s 3G version? You guys needed to make the right choice and should have gone with Verizon.

    I can’t wait for Uncharted 3 and God of War Origins.

  • CrimsonGhost

    Cole in TekkenXStreet Fighter= I have to buy that game just because. As well as the PSVITA to play it but you get the idea. Great job sony.
