Sony plans to showcase over 40 games at E3

Sony is planning to showcase over 40 games across PS4, PS3 and Vita at E3 next week, according to a PlayStation Blog post. The platform holder will kick off proceedings with its press conference, which will be livestreamed from Monday June 10 in the US at 5:30pm Pacific/8:30pm Eastern (that’s Tuesday morning in Europe at 1.30am BST/2.30am CET). Perhaps most interestingly, we’ll find out more about PS4 and actually get to see the hardware itself, if a recent teaser video is anything to go by.

Following its conference, Sony plans to run special livestreamed events for three days, with each show featuring a mixture of gameplay demos and developer interviews for upcoming titles. The company said to expect to see the likes of Destiny, Beyond: Two Souls, DriveClub, The Evil Within, Gran Turismo 6, Killzone: Shadow Fall and Tearaway, plus “many, many more”. A teaser trailer for the conference can be viewed above.

    Predictable just to counter Microsoft's "15" and i cant blame them. We have to take into account Multiplatform games and the games between PS4 and PSVita, even then im pretty sure they are gonna be better than Microsofts. Both of them look like they know people just want games and they are grasping to show it, the conferences will show it all and frankly all this game wanting and hyping and is just making this E3 better than ever to happen already
  • ZeeCaptain - June 7, 2013 11:22 a.m.

    Pretty much what you said. They'll be pushed for time, showing off their console, and the large number of games they (rounded up?) on.

    Games we know(or at least highly expect) are going to be there: Beyond: Two Souls Puppeteer Gran Turismo 6 inFamous: Second Son DriveClub Killzone: Mercenary Killzone: Shadowfall Until Dawn Rain Tearaway InVisimals Knack And not forgetting what the 3rd-party are going to show: Diablo III Watch_Dogs Assassin's Creed 4 Destiny Final Fantasy XIV: A Realm Reborn Deep Down The Witness

    Eh, just like the "15 exclusives" promised by Microsoft, I'm gonna go ahead and take this number with a grain of salt. Doesn't sound too unreasonable though if it's combining all of sony's platforms. But still, I'll be happy if at the least 10 of them turn out to be new, and promising experiences, mainly for the PS3 and PS4. XD

    By 'showcase' they probably just mean that small clips will be shown in the ridiculously long intro video they have every years at E3 to remind you that you are at the Sony PlayStation press conference :P
  • LoboMau - June 6, 2013 11:54 a.m.

    Quantity over quality! Always a good strategy.
  • McEd - June 6, 2013 3:38 p.m.

    How do you figure Sony is going to skimp on quality? More developers be developin' of PS4
