Sunday, September 24, 2006  
here's the IGN staff's experience at the gameshow in tokyo, and i can completely understand how that feels (source:

IGN: "So, so the point here is that this demo running on this PSP was downloaded from this PS3 here, right?"
Booth Babe: ""HAI! YES!"
IGN: "OK cool, I've been wondering when they were going to get busy connecting up PSP and the consoles. Let's see it"
Booth Babe: "OK, here you are!" [Hands me PSP running PS one version of Ridge Racer.]
IGN: "I'm sorry, I meant I'd like to see the demo please."
Booth Babe: "Yes, please play!"
IGN: "What?"
Booth Babe: "You can press boo'ton for gas, and..."
IGN: "No."
Booth Babe: "Hai!"
IGN: "No, I've already played Ridge Racer for PS one already. On a PS one. And the PSP last year at E3 for that matter, but never mind that, I'd like to see the demonstration."
Booth Babe: "Ummm ... We have Ridge Racer and Loco Roco!"
IGN: "They're already downloaded on the PSPs, though. Can you reset, I'd like to see the interface."
Booth Babe: "Ah, it's not ready yet!"
IGN: "W.T.F. [*edited for language*] I'm sorry, excuse my language, but ... or, do you understand what ... never mind, are you telling me you can't actually show me the PSP downloading a demo from the PS3."
Booth Babe: "You can play it here!"
IGN: "Yeah, but the whole point of the demo is that this game came from that big machine to run on this little machine."
Booth Babe: "Um ... Technical Demo for PlayStation 3 and PSP!"
IGN: "But do you understand that it's not really a demo if you don't demonstrate anything."
Booth Babe: "I'm sorry."
IGN: "No, I shouldn't be getting mad at you, it's not like you made the demo. Can I please maybe try to find the interface since I know both machines?"
Booth Babe: "Oh, only PSP is playable, please."
IGN: "You know that this is a six hundred dollar machine sitting here, right? $600. This Sony, they spent 600 dollars to build a machine to convince me ... no, make that make me convince myself on the principle that there'd be no reason for Sony to lie about the world's most powerful gaming platform being capable of moving a game demo file onto a PSP."
Booth Babe: [smiles, cocks head in confusion, and tries to deflate my misdirected rage with her femininity.]
IGN: "And your boss, he told you to make wave motions with your hands, gesturing from the PS3 to the PSP, and call it a technical demonstration?"
Booth Babe: "Hai! Ah, yes!"
IGN: "And other people have passed by here for two days now without questioning this?"
Booth Babe: "Hai!"
IGN: "...Please marry me anyway."
