Slim Down for Summer with That's Fit

G.A.M.E.: PSP presence merely okay

GameSpot held their much publicized event, called the Games and Music Experience, over the weekend in San Francisco. Billed as a mini-E3 by some, the three-day show featured not just the usual game kiosks and random smattering of tight-shirted promo girls (and one cosplayer sighting on Saturday night), but also DJs, bands, hip-hop acts, and an appearance by the site's editors, who entertained attendees with B-list celebrity interviews and Guitar Hero matches.

As expected, Sony's PSP was present at the event's Games On The Go section to show off a range of titles, although the games on display were less spectacular than anticipated. But while most have already been widely available in the market for some time now, a few titles set for release in 2006 did make an appearance, namely SOE's Field Commander, Untold Legends: The Warrior's Code, and Namco's Bounty Hounds.

Just across the way was a rather large booth from Nokia for their N-Gage, which was surprising considering they had already admitted they would stop creating new versions of the gaming phone and redirect their attention from mobile gaming to music and television. Can't say we blame them for trying to eke out one last hurrah, though.

[UPDATE:] Joystiq has a report from a disgruntled gamer about the event here.
