Sony's president Kaz Hirai was gracious enough to give the San Francisco crowd what it really wanted. "Rrrrrrriiiiiiidddddddgggggeeee Rrrrraaaaacccceerrrr!" he exclaimed while showing off the PlayStation 3 and, frankly, all was right with the world.
There wasn't a tremendous amount of news given out at Sony's gamer's day, held in San Francisco's Potrero Hill. Sony announced 22 titles for PlayStation 3 from the console's launch until the end of the year and promised the first 500,000 PlayStation 3s will come boxed with a Blu-Ray copy of Talladega Nights: The Ballad of Ricky Bobby. There was some news on pricing ($59.99 for Sony's first party games; $49.99 for a wireless controller; $14.99 for a memory card adapter to transfer PlayStation and PlayStation 2 game saves to the PlayStation 3).
(Ludacris is the one on the right. Here, he's saying "Luda," and I'm pretty sure the crowd was all, like, "Chris.")
