E3 2008; Sony keynote wrap-up
What a day to have a technical problem!
Instead of being able to 'live blog' the Sony press conference at E3 2008 like last year, we ended up being able to do absolutely nothing. Zip. Nada.
So, for those of you who don't already know what was discussed, here's a headline quick wrap-up and links to other stories from people who didn't have their equipment fail on them yesterday!
