A recent event held at the Sony Style Store in New York City showed off the latest and greatest games the PlayStation 3 has to offer. Uncharted 3, SOCOM 4 and InFamous 2 all look great, but they look just that much better on high-end Sony televisions. Games like Killzone 3 and Gran Turismo 5 were also at hand, but those we have all already seen. Every game at the event had its capabilities maxed out. If it could be run in 3D, it was running in 3D. If it could be played with the PlayStation Move remote and navigation controller, it was being played with it. I got to check out Uncharted 3 and SOCOM 4 very briefly, and I have to say that these games are looking pretty darn promising.
Uncharted 3 was unplayable, but the folks at the Sony Style Store did have it running on a 3D TV. The gameplay was what you all have already seen before, Nathan Drake and Sully working their way through a burning building. It looked good for what it was, but wasn’t the most impressive thing in the world. Maybe it’s because the demo was being ran on a TV bigger than 60 inches. It exposed a lot of the unpolished areas of the game, which I’m sure is because I was looking at the game in its earlier stages of development. I think the important thing is the fact that this epic series will be running in 3D should excite everyone. Looking forward to actually playing the game soon.
SOCOM 4‘s release is approaching very, very soon, and I got a chance to play the campaign a little bit with the PlayStation Move controller, navigation controller, and sharp shooter attachment. The game was also running in 3D, and it looked amazing. Aiming down your weapon and shooting enemies was a whole lot of fun, especially in 3D. This was my first time playing a first-person shooter in 3D with a motion controller, and this felt like the closest thing to virtual reality. I don’t know what virtual reality feels like, but I’m sure this was pretty close to it. Look forward to a full impressions write-up from the Deputy Editor, Joel Taveras, sometime next week.
That’s all I got, folks. Wish you all could have been there.
