When Sony says that their main priority has and always will be the gamers, they totally meant it. Tonight Sony not only dropped the mic on Microsoft, they did a roundhouse kick on them as well. During a two hour long E3 press conference, it was clear that Sony knew it’s competition and was ready to fight. Not only will the PlayStation 4 (PS4) be backwards compatible but it will be $100 cheaper and won’t require an always on internet connection. Couple that with a few other highlights and it’s clear that the Xbox One has a lot of explaining to do to justify it’s stance on always on internet and the high price point.
So let’s go over the highlights again:
Used games support
PS+ Membership will carry over (PS3, PS4, Vita)
No Online restriction
Cloud service coming in 2014
Sony Pictures developing their own content exclusive to the PlayStation Network
Addition of Redbox instant by Verizon, a new live events viewer, Gaikai and Flixster

Today, I’ll run through all the highlights from the press conference and hopefully you’ll get a better sense of what the company is and has planned for 2013.

Surely, the Galaxy III is pretty mainstream amongst a large chunk of Android enthusiasts, and the Note 10.1 and II have been out for some time now. Still, wouldn’t you rather hear Samsung themselves talk about it? And you can comb through the almost 50 minute conference with ease with these handy-dandy cliffsnotes!

San Diego Comic Con came and went and I’m still here pumping out coverage! In case you weren’t aware, this Comic Con I teamed up with long-time friends at TheCinemaSource.com.
