Porta-movie

Standard-definition movies can be viewed on all generations of the PSP. The PSP's store looks much like the one on the PS3, minus, of course, the eye candy.

Livin' on the edge

Sony staged its launch at a swanky house overlooking the ocean in Sydney's eastern suburbs. Alas, the weather refused to play ball, so the only things enjoying the infinity edge pool were a bunch of PlayStation symbols.

No news

With the E3 gaming convention just around the corner, Sony had no new news regarding 3D on the PlayStation.

Motoring on in 3D

Despite the lack of 3D-related news, Sony wheeled out a few of its 3D televisions. These were hooked up to PlayStations running MotorStorm in three dimensions.
