Sony has arguably been the big shot at E3 throughout the past several years, since they first unveiled the PlayStation 4, really. While many would probably argue that Nintendo stole the entire show, last minute, last year with the showing of The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild; Sony has pretty much brought at least one or two things every year, for the past several years, that has made the crowd go absolutely insane.
With that all aside, this years E3 is definitely going to be something different, and each company is going to have to step their game up if they want to be able to properly compete with each other. With Microsoft readying to fully unveil their Project Scorpio console, and with Nintendo not only having the HUGE success of the Switch on their side, but also the 3DS still kicking it as well, a simple big-title announcement could in reality win them the entire show, despite them not actually holding a Press Conference themselves.
Sony on the other hand will still be sticking with the traditional E3 format, and will be holding a Press Conference of their own at the show. Sony has recently announced that their Press Conference will take place during their usual Monday slot, on June 12th at 6pm Pacific Time. Software is likely to be Sony’s main focus at this years show, as they will more than likely be going more in-depth with big titles they announce in 2016, such as the new God of War. Sony and Naughty Dog have also revealed The Last of Us 2 back in 2016, and aside from us receiving a small teaser trailer for the game, we have not received all that much information for the title; expect The Last of Us 2 to be a major focus during this years Sony Press Conference. A new Killzone game and Resistance game are also possibilities for announcements at the show, as it’s been awhile since both series have received new entries.
The speculation could go on for day’s, as ultimately; Sony has quite a few inactive IP’s that are deeply cherished among both their casual and hardcore crowd. Only one could hope that one or two of those franchises can be revived with a new entry on the PlayStation 4, with a reveal at E3.
