So, E3 is nearly upon us! That glorious week every June when the biggest and best video game creators from around the world gather in Los Angeles to show off the fruits of their labours is just days away.
Once again, we’ll be streaming the show live, right here on PlayStation Blog, for four days. Things kick off at 1.30am BST/2.30am CET early on Tuesday 11th June with the PlayStation E3 2013 Press Conference, where we’ll be showcasing the future of PS3, PS Vita and, of course, PS4. Trust me, you won’t want to miss it – but if you’re not much of a night owl, fear not, you will be able to watch it on repeat later in the day.
Then, from 8.00pm/9.00pm on Tuesday evening, we’ll kick off three days of our PlayStation LiveCast show, featuring gameplay demos and developer interviews for zillions of upcoming PS4, PS3 and PS Vita games.
Expect to see BEYOND: Two Souls from Quantic Dream, Destiny from Bungie, DriveClub from Evolution Studios, The Evil Within from Tango GameWorks, Gran Turismo 6 from Polyphony Digital, inFAMOUS: Second Son from Sucker Punch Productions, Killzone: Shadow Fall and Killzone Mercenary from Guerrilla Games, The Last of Us from Naughty Dog, Tearaway from Media Molecule, Wolfenstein: The New Order from MachineGames and many, many more. All told, we’re planning to showcase more than 40 games across PS4, PS3 and PS Vita.
My esteemed colleague at SCEA, Sid Shuman, will be hosting all the action, but you might see me pop up here and there too.
You’ll find the livestream right here on PlayStation Blog, and at PlayStation.com, Ustream, PlayStation Home, Facebook or Google Plus. You’ll be able to watch E3 live directly on your PS3 too — look for the icon under your XMB’s What’s New section.
