It’s time for Sony to reveal what they have up their sleeves for the PlayStation at this year’s E3 – and you can watch it all unfold right here LIVE…
So far, the console wars have been in the palm of Sony’s hypothetical hand. Their gamer-centric positioning has worked to their favour compared to a “jack of all trades” approach by Microsoft to the Xbox One.

While many of you will see this as a “glass half empty” lack of willingness to show their full hand, I see this as a “glass half full,” because they’ve realistically got A LOT to talk about.
You can be sure of a new load of coverage around Playstation VR, and an intro to a whole host of games to play for it.
In terms of games, we have a lot to follow up on from last year: Detroit: Become Human, Horizon Zero Dawn and, of course, The Last Guardian to name only three. AND there have been some rumblings about a new God of War, which I can’t help but get excited about.
In terms of completely left field predictions – Naughty Dog comes out to celebrate the Crash Bandicoot easter egg, announcing a remastered version…
