Sony has historically pulled out all the stops when it comes to its E3 presentations, and we're expecting no different this year — the company will present from a position of power, with the PlayStation 4 thus far holding a strong lead over Microsoft's Xbox One in the current generation console wars. And there's a ton of ground to cover this year, from upcoming games like Uncharted 4 and No Man's Sky (not to mention dozens of cross-platform titles) to Project Morpheus, the company's big bet on virtual reality. With Microsoft partnering with Oculus just a few days ago, we expect Sony to have a lot to say to help convince consumers that its vision of VR is the one they should buy into.
And there's even a shot that The Last Guardian might finally, finally be ready to be announced as an actual game you can buy with real money. We're not going to hold our breath, but stranger things have happened. Either way, it's a presentation you'll want to follow along with, and fortunately there are a multitude of ways to do so — starting with our up-to-the-second live blog.
