Nintendo, Sony, E3, etc…

Sony and Nintendo both had press conferences today. The only thing I thought was particularly interesting from the Sony conference is that a redesigned PSP (Gamespot via Slashdot) is on the horizon, it’s smaller, has better battery live, and has the ability to hook directly to your television to play games. Kind of neat, though hooking it up to your television makes it substantially less portable.

On the Nintendo front, dates for Super Mario Galaxy and Super Smash Bros. Brawl have been announced (Nov. 12 and Dec. 3, respectively). I’m not so sure about Galaxy, I was pretty let down by Super Mario Sunshine, but Brawl? Yeah, I’ll have one. I need to remember to take a paid vacation day that day, or that week.

Also mentioned was some ridiculous light gun accessory. Probably won’t be picking one of those up unless it makes its way to the bargain bin.
