The Playstation E3 2014 press conference will take place Monday, June 9 at 9 p.m. EST/ 6 p.m. PST, according to a Twitter post from GameTrailer’s Geoff Keighley. A location and streaming options have not been announced yet. However, given that the announcement comes from Keighley first, GameTrailers TV will be one option possibly along with streaming straight from the PS4 and/or PS3. We’ll update this post with full details when they become available.
A supposed leak about what is to be presented during the Playstation E3 event made the rounds yesterday but it should be considered the highest of rumors and taken with a very sizable grain of salt. That said, you can pretty much guarantee appearances by “Uncharted 4,” “Driveclub” and “The Order: 1886.” The big question is if “Gran Turismo 6” for the PS4 will be announced along with new games from first and second party developers such as Guerrilla Games, Quantic Dreams, Media Molecule and others.
With the Playstation 4 already selling seven million units and in a commanding lead in the console wars, expect Sony to press its advantage during their E3 press conference. This includes not only first party titles but to continue to build on the momentum it has gained with being perceived as very indie developer friendly.
Microsoft will hold its E3 press conference earlier the same day at 12:30 p.m. EST / 9:30 a.m. PST. The presentation will be all about games according to Microsoft’s announcement with “Halo”, “Sunset Overdrive” and “Quantum Break” all playing significant roles along with “Call of Duty: Advanced Warfare,” “Gears of War” and other older IP that Microsoft will attempt to revive.
Meanwhile, Nintendo is skipping an official E3 presentation for the second straight year. Instead, it will host a digital event to detail its upcoming new offerings along with a “Super Smash Bros.” tournament and the chance to play the Wii U version of the game at Best Buy.
