I'm a little disappointed it's not closer. Was hoping for an early February launch.

inFAMOUS: Second Son launches 21st March.

The trailer showed off Delsin's new neon powers, which look great.

Nate Fox from Sucker Punch is up next. "PS4 is spectacular," he says.

He's talking up inFAMOUS: Second Son. We're getting a new trailer showing off his neon powers.

Greatness arrives in 45 minutes. Are you hyped yet?

We're taking a tour of the Standard Hotel for the PS4 launch event. There are lots of light shows, video games, and high-profile execs. What more could you want?

Sony's already dropped the Naughty Dog bomb then. Do you think it will have any major announcements left for the rest of the show?

Phew, we're getting a little breather after Naughty Dog dropped that megaton.

"We're going to be pushing story-telling," Balestra says. "We're going to push the visuals, too."

That was unexpected, huh?

Uncharted PS4 was just teased. Megaton?

The Last of Us: Left Behind launches soon. You play as Ellie. How about that?

The Last of Us single player trailer opens with dead bodies and a fairground ride. Ellie's in it, alongside another young girl. You play as the former. It's due out in early 2014.

Naughty Dog are up now, about to reveal The Last of Us' single player add-on.

"The launch lineup is the strongest in PlayStation history," says Mark Cerny.

Do you agree?

We're taking a look back at the announcement of the PS4 and Sony's lead up to launch.

"The highlight of the year was seeing the final two hardware designs in my office," says House.

Unsurprisingly, Tretton enjoyed E3 the most.

"PlayStation Nation energises me," says Tretton. "I'm appreciative of every fan."

"Lots of big surprises on the way."

Jack Tretton and Andrew House are first up. "We couldn't be happier to be here," says House.

Geoff Keighley promises E3-esque announcements.

And we're off. Geoff Keighley is talking up the show.

Greatness awaits, y'all. Let's do this.

Greatness arrives in just around an hour. Join us as we countdown to PS4.
