E3 2012: Sony E3 Media Conference Live Blog

News E3 2012 PS Vita Playstation 3 Sony

On Monday June 4 (or Tuesday June 5 if you live in Australia), Sony will be the last of four media conferences of the day. This won’t deter Capsule Computers from covering the conference. This is the live blog, where you will be kept up to date with the conference. In addition to that, you can have a say while the conference is running in the comment section below. Maybe you have a prediction, or just want to say hi. Speaking of predictions, Capsule Computers have their own predictions with Sony’s E3 conference, which you can check out here. For our coverage of the event itself and other conferences, then follow this link.

The live blog will be conducted by myself and will start 30 minutes before Sony starts their conference. While the conference is running, I will offer my own opinions, hopefully on top of any opinions you may have. The blog will start at:

  • New Zealand – 12:30pm NZST Tuesday June 5
  • Australia – 10:30am AEST Tuesday June 5
  • United Kingdom – 1:30am BST Tuesday June 5
  • USA East – 8:30pm EDT Monday June 4
  • USA West – 5:30pm EDT Monday June 4

I do have to note that this will be an old fashion blog, so a refresh every now and again is necessary. Enjoy!

Josh is the name, writing is my game... well my degree will say that. But, when uni gets me down (and it does), there is no better way that to grab a chair, sit back and slicing up some Darkspawn I started my gaming interest back in the good old 16 bit era with the Sega Mega Drive and Sonic The Hedgehog 2. I was roughly five years old. To this day I still try to fire up the dusty companion and speed through the wacky and bright levels, jumping on some Badniks, collecting those damn Chaos Emeralds. Then I moved onto Sony's disk based console the Playstation (thanks to my uncle). Since then I have picked up each of Sony's consoles from the 5th to current generation that has been released in Australia (with more to come). In terms of writing about games, I am quite new to the field. I started out late last year with my own blog before deciding to move to greener pastures. I have written a few reviews for the Playstation 3 and Playstation Portable. Features as well. I hope I can flex my muscles while writing with Capsule Computers. If I'm not gaming, however, I'm writing narratives. I am currently trying to kickstart a high fantasy novel (which, hopefully, turns into a complex RPG) that I want done in five years or so. My passion of writing has been there for a long time and has flourished as I grew. I'm into the fantasy genre, both games and novels, and thoroughly enjoy a deep and complex RPG, whether it comes from the East or West. Oh and anime is awesome!
