Check out Sony’s E3 on… ahem… PSN

A recent post to the Sony Playstation Blog notes that fans will be able to “experience” E3 from PlayStation Home. This seems important for a couple of reasons: Sony is ready to welcome back gamers, presumably en masse, to their online services. Second, it also means that more of Sony’s services will be restored by the time E3 rolls around — certainty a wise strategic move in order to put all of that nasty mess behind you and focus gamers on new hotness. And as long as were talking about new hotness — how about native support for Amazon VOD, just saying. We all know it’s never coming to XBox as long as you can buy movies through Zune, and if you want to give non-gamers a compelling reason to buy a PS3 other than blu-ray, this might be it… just a tip… you know, from a friendly consumer.

In the meantime, let’s see what happens when everyone tries to download their free games simultaneously. Either way, competition is good for consumers, so welcome back. Read the full post here.

Hi, I’m one of the founders of Nerd Appropriate and the Rated NA podcast. I like good and bad sci-fi films and tv, pho, and the retrofuture. I am primarily an Xbox gamer, but also do some PC and Wii U gaming as well. By day, I am a research scientist, mostly in topics related to human-computer interaction and user experience. Before all this, fellow NA co-founder Matt and I played music together in various bands. I also used to make "comedy" videos for my high school morning news program before there was a place to post them online. Favorite Star Wars character? Admiral Ackbar. Best Bond era? Timothy Dalton (Craig a close second). Game of all time? Maybe System Shock 2. Thanks for being a part of this labor of nerdy love with us.
