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, so stay tuned.

hi orton131 – I believe Andy Stewart has just put a post up about this


Watch Dogs and Beyond: Two Souls were the best of E3 for me.

Them and also the gorgeous but unmentioned here – Ni No Kuni: Wrath of the White Witch.

I just wish we had the KH Collection to look forward to, afterall it is the 10th anniversary. 3DS owners get an anniversary package and it didn’t even begin on Nintendo platforms…

I know first and second party are the most important but franchises like that you can’t really let slip away, but it seems Nintendo has gotten hold of KH now.

I’m just trying to point out that you have a brand new handheld console that needs to been shown off to PS and gaming fans.
Not to mention to those that have invested in a Vita and want to see whats coming!

@1 int gonna happen you need to work for a game company to goto E3 they dont let anyone in


Very impressive, but the question is, will this game beat the others?

@ CoolRichy008UK

You don’t have to work for a game company to go to E3 LOL! You can purchase a ticket but they sell out within minutes of release!

You really think game company employees went to the SONY conference & received a Years free PLUS? LOL!

Funniest thing i’ve heard in a long time lol! ;)


Actually sorry, you can purchase 3 day EXPO passes to play the DEMOs etc! but the tickets were ridiculous at $400!!!
