Well, no PS3 at CES. I’d say I was surprised but….I think Sony is dropping the ball on prelaunch hype. While the news I saw is predicting a June/July release date for Japan and a September launch for N.A. there has been absolutely no playable content demoed for consumers. Maybe there are some videos out there of gameplay but, if there are I haven’t seen them. PS3 is, at the moment, standing only a single notch below the Phantom and maybe two beneath Duke Nukem Forever. (Shacknews)
