PlayStation E3 Round-Up – Day 3
On the third and final day of E3 2012, there were no signs of anyone slowing down as keen fans flocked to discover some more brand new titles.
In the morning, we got a taste of some of Capcom’s upcoming titles, such as the blood-curdling Resident Evil 6 which is proving just as terrifying as you can imagine. DmC (Ninja Theory’s upcoming take on Devil May Cry) is also shaping up nicely with its mix of fast and furious combat.
In the afternoon we were treated to a look at the title that has really got the show talking – Watch Dogs – which was definitely living up to expectations. It’s a futuristic action adventure title that allows you to manipulate electricity, hack into phone conversations, change traffic lights at your own convenience and monitor other citizens via CCTV cameras – other people are no longer individuals, they’re just numbers and statistics at your disposal.
Hong Kong Island is the hustling, bustling epicentre of the expansive Sleeping Dogs. It’s the tale of an undercover cop who forms deeper links with the Triad mob he infiltrates than he anticipated, and features a range of fully formed play styles including responsive vehicle handling and brutal hand-to-hand combat.
One title that we couldn’t resist was the music-based title, Rocksmith. It feels satisfying and realistic as you get to play an actual electric guitar, and the game teaches you everything from tuning your instrument to performing chords, riffs and solos.
We’ve had a fantastic time at E3 2012 and we hope you’ve enjoyed our coverage. It’s not over yet, though – we still have a few interviews and features to publish here on PlayStation.Blog and over at eu.playstation.com/e3, so stay tuned.
