The centrepiece of the launch was a demo from the upcoming Killzone 3, which Sony described as a "technological showpiece". The fast-paced 3D action shooter was displayed on a giant screen.

Kazuo Hirai, Sony Computer Entertainments chairman, said the combination of 3D gaming and its new motion controller would result in "the closest thing you will ever experience to being in the game yourself."

"What Avatar did for 3D movies, titles like Killzone 3 will do for games," he said.

3D has been one of E3's most talked-about technologies. While Sony's games require users to wear 3D glasses, Nintendo has announced that it revamped 3D DS handheld will not.

Sony also announced a slew of forthcoming 3D titles for the PlayStation 3, including Grand Turismo 5, Crysis 2, and Ghost Recon, in addition to re-mastering of some old classics, such as Wipeout 3DHarsh critic

The other big announcement was about Sony's new motion controller, PlayStation Move, which is to be released in Europe on 15 September 16 dedicated titles will also go on sale the day of launch, with another 40 slated to go into retail in the months leading up to Christmas. But the real surprise of the event was at the end, when Valve announced that it was to release Portal 2 for the PlayStation 3.

Three years ago, Newell was one of Sony's harshest critics. In an interview with Game Informer at the time, he said that the PlayStation 3 was a "total disaster" and predicted Nintendo would win the next-generation console war.

"I was one of the platform's biggest critics," said Mr Newell. "Now, I am delighted to announce Portal 2 for the PlayStation 3 and believe the Steamworks support included will make it the best console version of the game."

I'm not too thrilled about 3D. Doesn't interest me at all. Just playing my PS3 on my HDTV is good enough for me. Although I'am looking forward to Killzone 3. Killzone 2 was a masterpiece. Still pop it in every once in a while and play it.

Now Portal 2 coming to PS3 was a huge surprise.

I am a hardcore gamer, I believe that 3D is the next step, and I happily accept it. As for wearing the glasses, that doesn't bother me since it is the first console to go 3d for such advanced games, it isn't expected to be perfect. Eventually though, the glasses will be unneeded.

As for Portal 2....Portal is one of my favorite games, so when i heard that Portal 2 was coming to the PS3 i was excited.
