In addition, Sony premiered "Abzu," a submarine journey from the inventors of the prized "Journey" and "Entwined," a mind-altering three-dimensional airborne game. This Innovative highlights stemmed from the steampunk suspenseful story "The Order: 1886" throughout its yearly demonstration at the Electronic Entertainment Expo in Los Angeles.

The corporation says it will bring in PlayStation TV along with its video- and game-streaming devices, to the United States and Europe this fall. The $99 device lets operator’s stream filmed, older PlayStation labels and games for Sony's hand-held Vita system to any TV.

Fox news reports, “The "micro-console," which debuted in November in Japan as PSVita TV, also lets PlayStation 4 players send the action to a second TV.

On July 31, Sony will launch the open beta of its cloud-based PlayStation Now service, which will allow players to stream classic games from Sony's older consoles onto newer devices such as the PS4, the hand-held Vita, Xperia cellphones and Bravia TVs.

Sony is also demonstrating Project Morpheus, its virtual reality headset, at E3. That project, however, won't be available to consumers for at least another year.

Sony has led Microsoft Corp. since both companies began selling their latest consoles in November. Sony has sold 7 million PlayStation 4 consoles to Microsoft's 5 million Xbox One units. However, both companies have outpaced the sales of their predecessor consoles -- the Xbox 360 and PlayStation 3 -- during the same amount of time. And Sony's lead is far from insurmountable.

That makes exclusive titles like the just-announced "Uncharted 4: A Thief's End" and "LittleBigPlanet 3" more important. But one much-hyped PS4 exclusive, the racing game "DriveClub," was conspicuously absent at this year's E3 presentation. Many of the games Sony showcased Monday -- including Ubisoft's "Far Cry 4," Warner Bros.' "Batman: Arkham Knight" and Deep Silver's "Dead Island 2" -- will also be available on the Xbox One, although Sony promised exclusive content or early beta access for each.

One exclusive that will appeal to comic book fans: A live-action drama based on Brian Michael Bendis' popular series "Powers" will begin airing on Sony's PlayStation Network in December."
