Bombs Incoming! Sony's E3 Press Conference Will Be Held on 9th June

Posted by Kell Andersen

Greatness awaits

Batten down the hatches, fire up the rumour mill, and prepare your bodies, as Sony's finally laid out its plans for E3 2014. That's right, the Japanese giant has announced that its pre-conference presser will be taking place on Monday, 9th June at 18:00PM PT (21:00PM ET/02:00AM BST) in the Los Angeles Memorial Sports Arena.

There have been some pretty crazy rumours about the event circulating the Internet recently, so it's nice that we finally have something genuinely concrete to say about it. Unfortunately, all that we know is the date. However, we think that it's pretty obvious that we can look forward to dazzling reveals, stunning trailers, and absurdly awkward stage demos. The Last Guardian would be nice as well.

If you're hungry for some more juicy speculation, though, never fear, as we'll be sharing our outlandish predictions for the presser in the weeks to come. In the meantime, let us know some of your E3 hopes in the comments section below.

As expected, the Sony press conference takes place at the worst possible time for Europe. Groan...

2AM UK time?!?! I wish SONY would do it earlier in the USA. Oh well.

It certainly does seem a little strange that they would seemingly ignore the European market in this way yet again. Surely they could have scheduled the conference a few hours earlier to keep everyone happy. I can't really complain, though, as it'll be airing around midday over here. My biggest concern is making sure I don't get lunch crumbs all over my keyboard while I'm typing furiously.

It may be awkward, but you have to expect this since USA and European times are very different. If the time is good for Europeans, it's going to be bad for Americans. Since it's held in Los Angelas it's like only an hour or so difference for me since I'm central time. hehe I believe it's 6pm



get2sammyb said:

@Demi_God Yeah, you can't really please everyone. I think Microsoft's slot is probably the best one - it's early for US granted, but it's nice and early evening in Europe. I'm assuming that one doesn't work out well for you, though, @k_andersen?

I hope Ustream is up for the task this time around... last year it was not.
How will E3 be without Jack Tretton?




Demi_God said:

I really don't see why everyone praised jack tretton, he was with the PS3 the whole time I believe but only 5 years later did people praise him. I personally don't care about Tretton. The new guy has a much bigger background and I think he'll do just fine.

I'll be making sure to mess with my sleep schedule a week in advance and get coffee hooked into a drip for this one.

Hey my European PS Family,

I know the time for you is not good. However, I think it is smart strategically because it gives Sony a few hours to adjust their conference based on MS conference. I hope you can see that as a huge positive. It worked for Sony last year and I believe it will work again this year.

Imagine if MS announces a permanent price cut to $449.99 US, then Sony comes out in the evening an announces a permanent price cut to $379.99 or $369.99 US. That would be like "Boom". Also it would be smart to drop the price of the new Vita Slim to $149.99 (with only a 4GB card) and drop the price of the memory cards as well.



P.S. I hope they some news on Planetside 2, H1Z1, Everquest Next, and Little Big Planet Hub.

Won't be the same without Jack, he's always been good at E3. At least he went out of his last Sony E3 in s blaze of glory, hopefully the new guy isn't a disappointment.



GrafUlrich88 said:

Wouldn't be cool if they invite Jack Tretton to the stage and present him a plaque and allow the audience the chance to thank him for all he has done for Sony and video gaming.

Considering ps4 is selling better in the EU than elsewhere it is a little daft but no biggie, news is news, I'd rather read the juicy bits later.



darkhairwarrior said:

Hoping to see Ratchet & Clank. Hell a PS Vita game would be enough to hold be over until the duo jumps to PS4 (Which I'm pretty sure it will due to the movie).

I'd also love something of Resistance to appear, even if it's unlikely.
