Sony's press conference was good but, it was lacking in some areas. The biggest Playstation event that occured this year was the PSN outage and it was lightly talked about by Jack Tretton. He thanked developers and gamers for their loyalty but, didn't mention the welcome back program or if that Sony would further compensate gamers in some way. There was also a lack of anything about the current PSP and PS2, no new games or news were mentioned. It was nice to see that the conference didn't push motion gaming nearly as much as Microsoft's conference.
