E3 2016: Watch the Sony press conference livestream here

It will finish out the long day starting at 6 p.m. PDT / 9 p.m. EDT.

82

Sony will be the finale of the E3 press conferences again this year, and as in the past, you can expect them to take note of what happened in the earlier briefings and perhaps adjust accordingly. The event kicks off at 6 p.m. PDT / 9 p.m. EDT and should have quite a lineup.

Among the goodies expected are Horizon: Zero Dawn, which has already gotten a trailer and release date, as well as Gran Turismo Sport. Nioh, Harmonix Music VR, The Last Guardian and Destiny: Rise of Iron could also get some stage time. Hardware should be on display as well with PlayStation VR, although we likely won't see the new Neo unveiled. We can probably expect to see Call of Duty: Infinite Warfare as well.

If you are up late on the East Coast, join us in the viewing. We'll be popping out news quickly.

        I suspect a bunch are cross platform (CoD obviously, Spiderman probably) or they would've made more noise about it. Still a very impressive showing.

          The Spiderman thing ended with #SPIDERMANPS4 indicating at least that one is an exclusive.

            I'd be surprised only because I assume it's tied in somewhat to his movie roles and those games always try to go as wide as possible

              maybe they won't tie it to the movie this time so it doesn't end up being a piece of shit, would be pretty nice if Spiderman got its Arkham Asylum moment

                oh Spider-Man confirmed exclusive, from Insomniac themselves: "Marvel and Insomniac Games team up to create a brand-new, authentic Spider-Man story exclusively for PlayStation 4. Take control of an experienced Peter Parker who is more masterful at fighting crime."

                Spiderman 2 was awesome. I don't think the plot tie in is what's holding back a Spiderman game, they just failed to do the open world Spiderman thing well again after 2.

        Many are cross platform but it definitely has more interesting exclusives than the XB1

        I want to know if that Spiderman game is exclusive. If it is, what;s the story behind that? Was it part of the deal to get Sony to give the rights back to Marvel?

      That whole VR block seemed kind of underwhelming to me. Too many $20 dollar demos billed as "experiences". The gameplay video for Days Gone soured me on that too. Having a ton of zombies on screen isn't enough for me. Honestly, the whole thing started out super strong and kind of petered off after a bit.

        And fairly ambiguous. Like showing what looked a like motion tracked gun without really saying or showing it.

          Yeah not enough people coming out before or after the trailers to explain what the hell they even are.

      VR is still at tech demo stage it seems but the other games were all pretty rad. I'm way more interested in God of War than I have ever been for sure.

      Sony give 0 fucks about the all in one home entertainment solution which I like. Adding entertainment features should be a press release.

        E3 is all about the games. The other stuff is for the many other conferences throughout the year!

      Bit of a snooze fest in the end.

      The show had some good stuff, God of War is interesting in how they're changing up the gameplay, Horizon Zero Dawn looks amazing, even Spiderman has promise with Insomniac at the helm.

      But overall I feel like it was mostly unimpressive stuff, lots of VR "experiences" and surprise announcements that they present poorly and mostly fall flat eg. Crash Bandicoot, Batman VR

        I'm just catching up since I slept through it, but so far have to agree. Only Horizon Zero Dawn and God of War had my interest. Detroit looks cool in theory but will probably be another pretentious snooze fest from David Cage and co.

        Horizon Zero Dawn and Last Guardian were cool. The show had a great pace but the content itself was kind of meh. They really needed to end on Kojima and not the gameplay demo of that zombie game.

        I really want to like God Of War but I'm not sure about the Naughty Dog influence. We'll see though, we've seen so little of the game and maybe there's more HULK SMASH combat. Definitely not enough to judge. Pretty though!

      So many games attempt the open world zombie thing, but none of the zombies are the least bit threatening. He was mowing them down like nothing. And he even ran through them and bumped them away.
