Livin' la Vita loco
Tons of titles are heading to the handheld, including Drake's reprisal in Uncharted: Golden Abyss, hybrid punch-'em-up Street Fighter X Tekken, much-loved motorshows Wipeout 2048 and ModNation Racers, as well as the groundbreaking gore-fest Bioshock.
However, it's the cross-platform functionality that really raises eyebrows, which titles such as the RPG adventure Ruin and family-favourite LittleBigPlanet will embrace, allowing users to continue their PS3 games on the handheld, whether sat on the tube, or squatting over the bum-bowl.
Sony did put time aside for motion-gaming though, showing off some future PlayStation Move content, with Bioshock Infinite, NBA 2K12 and Star Trek, the standout titles. The latter will even launch with a phaser-style Move controller, set to play.
A PlayStation telly was also on show and will come bundled with a copy of Sony's exclusive shooter Resistance 3, also compatible with Move.
Other Sony-only titles include the anticipated FPS Dust 514, a return to Twisted Metal and the popular classic Shadow of the Colossus, set for reprisal this September following some HD remastering.
Sony certainly has enough up its sleeve to emerge relatively unscathed from the recent hacking fiasco. It could all depend on the success of Vita, though. Can Sony afford another kick in the knackers? Vita could be the codpiece it needs.

Hope i'm wrong
I so wan't BF3 to be a gfx and game-play upgrade to the PC BF2, but who are we PC owners kidding... it's just one more xbox game... small maps, low ram usage, low CPU/gpu usage, but will struggle on my i7 960 :(
Mirror's Edge 2??!!
I really hope there is a Mirror's Edge 2 in the works, the first is one of my favourite games of this generation. Hopefully switching the engine won't change the over-saturated and colourful look of the first.
Errrr . . .
. . . BF3 announced something akin to Call of Duty Elite ??
Surely you mean "EA announced that BF3 will have the same statistical analysis available as BF2 did 6 years ago".
Or even that some of us have been ripping the log files from our CoD servers and creating Elite style databases for a number of years.
Star Wars Kinect?
I know I haven't seen much of it, I just saw a video of two guys playing Star Wars Kinect...but it looked really quite dreadful to me. Maybe I missed something but where was the motion beyond silly 'pushing'-type arm waves? One guy only seemed to be able to move by headbutting the air.
Maybe I missed something, but it looks like a dreadful waste to me.
Here's waiting for the non-Kinect remakes of X-Wing and TIE Fighter.,,
