It’s evident that Sony is  coming out packing with content starting a five minute montage of a games for the PS3 along with the Move, the PSP and NGP. As the montage ends, Jack Tretton makes his way to the stage where public apology over the PSN outage and hacking is given.

From there we move onto the games. Without a doubt, one of the most anticipated games of 2011, Uncharted 3, is shown in trailer form and live demo. The demo takes Nathan Drake through what looks like a cruise ship being flooded as he tries to escape. The game is set to release November 1, 2011 (11/1/11).

A Resistance 3 demo was then previewed alongside a trailer. God of War Origins is bringing the PSP God of War titles to the PS3 in one collection. The Ico and Shadow of the Colossus HD collection was also mentioned and both are slated for September release.

Sony went on to unveil the PlayStation 3D Display, a TV display made specifically for the PS3 and it’s HD and 3D capabilities. There will be a bundle for $499 that will include the Display, a pair of 3D glasses, Resistance 3 and an HDMI cable.

NBA2K12 was shown off by none other than Los Angelos Lakers star Kobe Bryant, a game that now features Move support. The Move controller also featured off another exclusive game to the PS3, Medieval Moves: Deadmun’s Quest, a game which looks to be an updated version of “Sorcery”, the highly praised Move game from the previous E3. LittleBigPlanet 2 is headed for an update sometime this year that will add Move functionality.

Infamous 2 was given a proper trailer with the game scheduled to be released tomorrow.

The follow up to Warhawk was revealed as “Starhawk”, and Sly Cooper: Thieves in Time, a game that hasn’t seen a new title sin the main series since 2005, was announced shortly after.

DUST 514, a MMOFPS set in the EVE universe, was unveiled with a trailer and set for a 2011 beta release. A Star Trek game was also shown and slated for 2012.

Now for some exclusive content. The PS3 version of SSX will feature a Mount Fuji track and Saints Row The Third will feature a yet to be named exclusive mode. Battlefiled 1942will come packaged in with Battlefield 3 and Need for Speed: The Run will feature seven additional cars not available anywhere else.

Bioshock Infinite got itself a new trailer and a Bioshock for the PS Vita was even hinted at.

Speaking of the PS Vita.. the NGP name was dropped in favor of the PS Vita, with Vita apparently meaning “life”.  The press conference went on to highlight some of the major games to be released for the Vita.

First off, we saw a demo of Uncharted: Golden Abyss, a game that looks too good to be true for a handheld. RUIN, a top down, action RPG that features cloud syncing, allowing for the same saved data to be used on the game on both the PS3 and the Vita. ModNation, Wipeout, LittleBigPlant, and Street Fighter X Tekken were also shown.

As the press conference was coming to a close, the PlayStation Vita was once again brought to the light. This time it was announced that the system would would come in two models; $249 for Wifi, $299 for 3G. And with a shocking revelation, Sony went on to begin their E3 after event with a bang.
