Sony’s late night showing is set to conclude an incredible day of E3 2013 press conferences – and we’ll be bringing you unprecedented coverage from the big show right through the night. Expect the publisher to come out swinging as it attempts to topple Microsoft’s offering from earlier in the day. The platform holder’s already promised a first look at the PS4 itself, but we suspect that there’ll be plenty of new game reveals to go along with it.

Thanks for watching everyone. Keep your eyes on the site for tons of reaction.

And that's a wrap. The price and DRM policies were the real megatons.

£349 in Europe. Out this holiday season.

I thought they were going to close on Destiny. Still time for The Last Guardian?

get2sammyb

get2sammyb said:

Does anyone talk like this when they play games?

Destiny sure looks pretty, doesn't it?

get2sammyb said:

I think that this will be a free-to-play version of DriveClub. Note he keeps saying 'DriveClub PS Plus Edition'.

PlayStation Plus subscribers will get DriveClub day one.

Sony focused on expanding the benefits of PlayStation Plus. Accounts carry over.

This is the most incredible middle finger at Microsoft. They're milking it, too.

You don't need to go online to play games if you don't want to.

You can trade games, share them, do whatever you want. Crowd erupts.

get2sammyb said:

Haha, that was an amazing reaction.

PS4 supports used games. Crowd erupts.

Mad Max with exclusive content for PlayStation platforms.

140 games are in development for PS4.

Exclusive betas aren't really exciting...

The Elder Scrolls: Online is coming to PS4 next year.

Good to have Bethesda on board.

Watch Dogs continues to look really cool.

Seriously, that was a fun mission. PlayStation owners will get an extra hour of content.

get2sammyb

get2sammyb said:

I quite like the idea of this mission.

Watch Dogs sure looks pretty in the rain.

Everyone behind the scenes has their fingers crossed that it doesn't crash...

get2sammyb

get2sammyb said:

I bet this guy demoing Watch Dogs is even more nervous now...

get2sammyb

get2sammyb said:

That wasn't good, was it? At least they were playing live... Right?

Oh dear, it's crashed...

Whoops.

get2sammyb said:

I like Assassin's Creed and will play this.

Assassin's Creed IV: Black Flag is getting a gameplay demo on PS4.

get2sammyb

get2sammyb said:

They would have said if they were exclusive... I don't think they are.

Final Fantasy XV and Kingdom Hearts 3 coming to PS4. Not exclusive, though?

Kingdom Hearts 3... Is... Happening.

Square Enix dropping some bombs.

get2sammyb

get2sammyb said:

Oh my goodness. Kingdom Hearts....

FINAL FANTASY XV has been worth the wait.

Diablo III will have exclusive content based on PlayStation games.

More exclusive items from Blizzard in the future.

All featured indie games making their exclusive console debut on PS4. Great stuff.

Oddworld New 'n' Tasty is coming to PS4.

So many indie games... Pretty impressive.

Oddworld!

get2sammyb said:

Called this indie section. Just sayin'.

Sony's running through tons of indie games.

Some bonkers stuff. Octodad is coming to PS4.

Transistor will make its console debut on PS4.

That was a nice tune, wasn't it?

Adam Boyes is up talking indie. Supergiant Games are up.

Anyone remember Greg from GameSpot?

Cage just trolled everyone.

The Dark Sorcerer is on show from Quantic Dream right now. Nice twist.

Did not expect that from David Cage!

get2sammyb

get2sammyb said:

That's the right release date for inFAMOUS. Avoids a drought.

Killzone: Shadow Fall, Knack, and DriveClub will be launch titles.

inFAMOUS: Second Son will launch early next year.

get2sammyb

get2sammyb said:

inFAMOUS: Second Son looks as rad as expected.

Troy Baker continues to be boss in inFAMOUS: Second Son.

Sony's running through the PlayStation Meeting games.

This is the right way to handle this section.

The Order: 1886 had tons of atmosphere. Could have done without the monsters.

The Order: 1886 is in development at Ready At Dawn.

Exclusive for PS4. Steampunk title set in Victorian London. Looks like a co-op shooter.

get2sammyb

get2sammyb said:

This looks hot.

20 first-party PS4 titles set to launch in first year. 12 are new IP.

That's good news.

Haha, the IGN PlayStation team just got a spot on the big screen.

Shuhei Yoshida is such a boss. Glad he got a segment.

Yes, Shuhei Yoshida is up on stage.

Finally, save us, Shuhei!

And we're back onto games. Hopefully...

TV, Music, Movies, Sports...

Redbox Instant is coming to North America. The announcement you've been itching for.

Does anyone use Music Unlimited?

get2sammyb

get2sammyb said:

No matter how many times he says gamers, that doesn't make this segment ok. Did they have to use the Sports Champions 2 soundtrack, too?

New programming plan available on PS4. Exclusive content.

...

Sony Pictures is up on stage talking 'entertainment'. D'oh.

get2sammyb

get2sammyb said:

No. Don't do movies.

get2sammyb

get2sammyb said:

I think I like it.

It looks a bit like a book.

There's your first look at the PS4.

It's big, it's black.

Andrew House is up on stage now.

Time for more talking...?

get2sammyb

get2sammyb said:

That Vita section sure was short, wasn't it? Worrying.

Jack Tretton's moving onto the PS4 now.

Grand Theft Auto V will have an exclusive PS3 bundle.

There will be an exclusive GTA5 themed Pulse headset.

Batman: Arkham Origins will include exclusive content on PlayStation.

Downloadable content and 1960s TV show skin.

Troy Baker's take on the Joker sounds pretty good.

get2sammyb

get2sammyb said:

Feel like Sony hasn't learned from Microsoft with regards to pacing. Slow start.

PS3 really is having an incredible year, isn't it?

The Last of Us, Puppeteer, Rain, Beyond: Two Souls, Gran Turismo 6. Impressive.

Beyond: Two Souls looks unbelievable for a PS3 game. Ridiculous.

rain looks lovely.

get2sammyb said:

I'm so excited for Rain.

get2sammyb

get2sammyb said:

The Last of Us was always going to get an advertisement. Called it.

"Vita is the ultimate companion device for PS4," says Tretton.

The Walking Dead coming to Vita with new episode.

God of War HD 1 & 2 coming to Vita. Flower and Dead Nation, too.

Sony starting off with PS3 and Vita.

Makes sense. Hopefully, there's some big new content on the way for Vita.

get2sammyb

get2sammyb said:

How much do you reckon that watch is worth?

get2sammyb

get2sammyb said:

Let's keep the talk to a minimum, Jack.

Jack Tretton's up on the stage. Lapping up the applause.

"What's up everybody?" he shouts. He's looking confident.

Haha, Sony does love its epic montages, huh?

That's one hell of a screen.

Starting with a spot of The Unfinished Swan.

Sony's always late. Don't panic.

inFAMOUS: Second Son looks hot. Just caught a glimpse on the big screen.

Sony never starts its press conferences on time. How long will this year's show be delayed?

Just a few minutes to go. Grab a drink, empty your bladder, and strap in. #TeamBlue

Colin Moriarty from IGN says that the games on the screen are being played live.

Five minutes.

There's now just 15 minutes to go until the big show.

Sony's running its pre-show right now.

Currrently so hyped that I'm doing press ups in a fervent manner. Feel like Mr. Muscle.

We're less than an hour away from the show now. Shoot us a retweet if you're hyped.

Just to clear up some confusion: the press conference will begin at 18:00PM PDT and 02:00AM BST. So, two hours from the time of this message.

We know it's early, join us on Push Square for some live chat!
