    So, possible OnLive acquisition, and probably Valve appearance? That plus [endless] excuses, and a few Vita announcements?
    Sony sure is gonna give Microsoft a run for it's money.

    How come you're doing this specifically for Sony and not for like every other conference?

    This seems more General Gaming Discussions than anything else. If you want to stay constantly updated I'll just watch the conference.

    Plus I don't want the famous "soulx charm" over my Sony news, sorry.

    EDIT: Oh yeah and giant images are bad. UNAPPROVE BUTTON HURRAH.

    Because Sony's conference is more notable than the other ones. We're sure to get some better info out of this.

    As for my charm, calm down. I'll just report the news without opinions. ;)

    Regardless I moved this to General Gaming Discussions since it seems more discussion-y than news-y. If a mod disagrees then move it back and if anyone here REALLY objects than just report this post and complain about it or something.

    But GGD seems right.

    It was spoilered, and there was relevant material in the post. Clearly Reggie's face was too much to your extreme aversion to all things non-Sony.
    Reggie weeps for you. Reggie loves you. Reggie knows best for you.
    Accept Reggie.

    Back on topic, as I said before I was rudely censored, I'm anticipating that Sony will pull some kind of surprise (and Final Fantasy) out. Probably the acquisition of OnLive, as rumored, or a surprise appearance by their newest lapdog - Gabe Newell.

    When I unapproved it it was just the image.

    I can't see it now but I suggest PMing a mod or something about it if you want it to return or reposting.

    I'm loving how you didn't deny anything. This is excellent progress, and Reggie is pleased. Very pleased.
    Anyway we're now done here. Reggie out.

    Eh, the visuals were good (apart from those hideous faces).

    Still don't know much about the game, though (Beyond).
