Crash Bandicoot PS4 PlayStation 4 1

We tend to ban the word 'E3' here at Push Square Towers until at least May, but that's not possible if you work at PlayStation HQ. In an interview with SCEA president Shawn Layden on the latest PlayStation Blogcast, the animated suit alluded that the company's been planning for the Los Angeles-based event for three months already – and it's still got a further three months to finalise things.

"It eats up about half a year to get ready for that show," he said, refraining from sharing any specific details. Last year, the PlayStation maker hosted arguably the greatest E3 press conference of all time, so it'll be fascinating to see if it can come close to matching that in June. A Crash Bandicoot reveal would bring the roof down – but Layden did hint that he's banned from mentioning those two words.

Banned until he utters them up on stage this summer, eh? Eh?
