Sony's GamesCom conference just over an hour long, new schedule details announced
By now every Sony watcher knows that they've booked three hours for their conference at next week's GamesCom event in Cologne. As it turns out, though, the guys from Sony won't be spending all of that time talking on stage and showing off whatever new stuff they've brought along.
An SCEE rep recently confirmed to gaming blog VG247 that the actual Sony conference will clock in at "just over an hour." All that extra time is apparently allotted "for people to sit down... before we get started."
They've also sent out a press release saying that the conference on August 18, 2009, Thursday, will last from 6:30 PM to 8:30 PM CEST instead of the 6:00 PM to 9:00 PM timeslot they mentioned a while back. The conference itself will start at 7:00 PM. In the US, that's 10:00 AM PST, 1:00 PM EST. In the UK, that's 6:00 PM BST.
I just wish they use maybe ten minutes of that time to announce a price cut, say something official about the PS3 Slim, and confirm that Adhoc Party is finally ready to come out of Japan. Oh, and a lower price point for the PSP Go. Just ten minutes, Sony. That's all I ask.
