Insomniac's Resistance 2 was the first game shown, with the on-screen player climbing to the rooftops to battle a 300 foot tall Leviathan in the streets of an alternate 1950's Chicago. A new trailer - showing a level taking place in Twin Falls, Idaho - was also shown.
This fall, all PlayStation users will have a single sign-in for the PlayStation Network across PS3, PSP and PC. Tretton said that the PlayStation Network's focus will still be the delivery of games, and towards that end he announced a new title: Ratchet & Clank Future: Quest for Booty - a continuation of Tools of Destruction. The game will be available this summer for USD 14.99.
"We're not interested in filling up our store with titles nobody wants to play just so we can say we have the most games," Tretton said - taking a swipe at Microsoft before showing a video of PixelJunk Eden, Fat Princess, Flower, the new Pain amusement park level, Siren: Blood Curse and Ragdoll Kung Fu: Fists of Plastic.
Sony Pictures, Fox, MGM, Lionsgate, Warner, Disney, Paramount, Turner and Funimation are participating in the new video download service on day one. TV show episodes in standard definition or HD will be priced at USD 1.99. Movies will be priced at USD 2.99 - 5.99 for rentals and USD 9.99 - 14.99 for purchases. The content, once downloaded to the PS3, can be put on the PSP.
According to Lempell, it will take about an hour to download a two-hour film - although, with progressive download, it appears that viewers will be able to start watching a film while it continues to download.
Update: Although Valkyria Chronicles was indeed shown in the PSP montage, SEGA has since indicated that this is a mistake. The game is in development for the PS3, with no PSP version planned. 2b1af7f3a8
