The Sony news conference lasted two hours today, focusing exclusively on the PlayStation 3. The majority of the conference was dedicated to technical babble that few but the most dedicated gamers would care to hear. The most interesting parts of the show came as game demonstrations were shown in video form. HereÃ¢â‚¬â„¢s a breakdown of what happened:
Sony announced that 190 million PlayStation brand products have been sold worldwide since the launch of PlayStation. 2 billion software titles have been sold across the PlayStation platforms during this time period. With over 13,000 titles released worldwide on PlayStation and PlayStation 2, it was self-evident that the PlayStation 3 would be fully backwards compatible. Sony confirmed this.
