I didn’t watch the Ubisoft press conference in its entirety, but from what I saw, it was just as embarrassing to watch as last year’s. Okay, maybe not that bad, but it wasn’t very good either.

I did watch Sony’s press conference and enjoyed it a lot. I’m giving it an A+. They showed of lots of games and announced the right price for the PlayStation Vita. $249.99 makes the new Sony handheld such an attractive piece of kit — especially when you consider all the games coming for it.
