Down Lakeshore Boulevard a ways lies a wonderful venue called Palais Royale, which in English translates to the Royal Palace, which in terms of the 2012 Sony Holiday Preview event translates to awesome fun times!
Amidst a large open space with a small stage on one end and two bars at the other, were rows of televisions with a wide range of first and third party titles to play and gawk at. If you’ve read Eli’s article you’ll already know a good chunk of what was being shown, and man were those games ever cool. Assassin’s Creed 3, DmC: Devil May Cry, God of War: Ascension, Metal Gear Solid Rising: Revengeance, Call of Duty: Black Ops Declassified, Injustice: God Among Us, Playstation All Stars: Battle Royal. The list goes on!
What differs from what Eli and I experienced is that he attended the public portion while I was there during the more intimate media only component. We had delicious hors d’oeuvres (mini poutine, bite sized crab cakes, spring rolls, yum!) to stuff our faces with while gaming, as well as an open bar, where the bartenders performed death-defying bottle-flipping stunts, and some awesome SWAG. It was most excellent!
