Sony launched the show with a keynote about their "true HD" products. Stan Glasgow, President and COO of Sony Electronics stated firmly: "1080p is TRUE HD! Microsoft is the sux0rz!!!!1"
Look at the smug look on his face as he shows off the publically playable PS3...
Of course, winning "Best of Show" will make anyone seem smug.
Sony picks up their trophy.
The Electronic Arts keynote was easily the best one of the bunch. Bing Gordon, CCO of EA, spoke about the future of games, and its convergence with Web 2.0, television and movies. Even if you hate EA, it's hard to disagree with their vision of the future: one in which games become more episodic, and feature more external community-driven interaction, as featured in The Sims
, and the upcoming Spore
One of the panel discussions featured at the show was "How to be a Professional Video Gamer," something I'm sure every Joystiq reader would be interested in. The PMS Clan spoke about the long hours of training each member must go through in order to win tournaments. Gaming is considered a sport
to these people, and GGL is working hard on making video games an official part of the Olympics in China
One of the many
competitions that took place on the show floor. Simply blinking would cost these players victory.
Microsoft had a really awesome Xbox 360 booth, featuring new and upcoming Xbox Live Arcade games.
