Sony to announce PS3 info at Games Developers Conference
Sony is set to announce new details about the Playstation 3 in a keynote at this years Games Developers Conference (GDC). In a speech titled “Playstation 3: Beyond the Box”, Phil Harrison, President, Worldwide Studios, Sony Computer Entertainment, is expected to reveal information about Sony’s next-generation console.
The keynote will cover Sony’s ‘innovative’ plans for the PS3 and look at the opportunity it presents to game developers around the world.
Jamil Moledina, Director of the GDC, was asked in an interview with GameDaily whether Sony would release new information about the Playstation 3:
Mr Moledina replied:
“The answer is yes. In general, platform providers have a unique opportunity at the GDC to share knowledge with and inspire the people who will make or break their consoles, namely the game developers themselves.
With that in mind, this GDC keynote, along with the Nintendo keynote by Satoru Iwata, have both been in development for several months, and contain significant editorial value and developer takeaway.
I strongly encourage you to attend both platform keynotes.”
There is no word yet on whether the Nintendo President, Satoru Iwata, will present any details about their new console, codenamed Revolution. In his keynote titled “Disrupting Development”, Iwata will discuss “…his thoughts on the role Nintendo’s video game systems will play in expanding the market and widening the possibilities for developers.”
All will be revealed soon when the GDC kicks off on March 20 in San Jose, California.
