How'd I Do on Sony's Conference?

So, I missed the live stream of Sony's conference, but it allowed me to fast-forward through the boring shit, like Tretton's opening monologue. Find out more about my predictions on the original post:

  • New Move Bundles : YES : Starting it off with a Resistance 3 package, Sony announced new Move bundles.
  • Move Price Drop : NO : Nope. Sadly.
  • New In-House IPs : YES : StarHawk, Dust 514, Ruin (Vita/PS3 cross support),
  • Sequels : YES : Resistance 3 was the intro child, but Sly Cooper: Thieves in Time was the first true announcement shown. Uncharted: Golden Abyss (or Uncharted Ø), was shown running on the just-prior named PS Vita.
  • HD Collections : YES : God of War's Origin Collection (Chains of Olympus/Ghost of Sparta) was announced, and Team ICO was reaffirmed.
  • PS4 Teaser : NO : Sadly, no. Not surprising, as the main focus was Move and Vita.
  • Steam Integration : NO : Unfortunately, no.
  • NGP Renamed Vita, Combating 3DS Price Point, Holiday 2011 : YES : Confirmed as PlayStation Vita ("vee-tah"), available in either 3G/Wi-Fi (on AT&T) or Wi-Fi only models with cross-platform saves, allowing you to start on the Vita, save, and pick up on the PS3 at home, or vice versa (only on supported titles, of course). Pricing starts at $249 for the Wi-Fi (now that's competitive) and $299 for the 3G/Wi-Fi model, coming Holiday 2011. Fuck. Ing. Called it. Nintendo needs to drop the price on 3DS. NOW.
  • KB : NO : Fuck. Where's the humility?

Not bad, actually. 5 out of 9? Pretty good.
