The Rumor: Sony’s packing some serious heat for E3 this year, according to reports. Among numerous rumors pertaining to Sony’s E3 press conference, it is claimed that a number of major titles, both currently announced and unannounced, will be showcased, including Uncharted 4, a new God of War game, a new WipeOut entry and, most far-reaching of all, a teaser trailer for a sequel to The Last of Us.
Our Take: It’s hard not to get all bouncy and excited over the prospect of so many awesome reveals in one E3 briefing. Uncharted 4 was confirmed for PS4 in November 2013, so Naughty Dog could be easily ready to show more. It’s been over a year since the last God of War game, so a sequel is possible. WipeOut’s been dormant on home consoles for while. As for a The Last of Us sequel, well, that’s a big claim and one we’d take with an almighty pinch of salt. If it happens though, Microsoft will have a hard time topping Sony this year.
