Sony PlayStation E3 2014 Press Conference

Sony will share what's next for the PlayStation platform -- the PS3, the PS4, and the Vita -- at its press conference that kicks off the E3 gaming show. Stay with CNET for complete live coverage.

  • Scott Stein 6/10/2014 2:08:18 AM
    No, just reminding us to go play Project Morpheus games here at E3. Demo-style. No further info.
  • Scott Stein 6/10/2014 2:08:36 AM
    Project Morpheus mention is more hardware-related talk than Microsoft had in its whole E3 presser.
  • Ian Sherr 6/10/2014 2:08:36 AM
    More than 1 Billion multiplayer sessions have been played on PS4 since launch, Layden says. The Share Button on the PlayStation has been pressed 220 million times, he adds. And it will likely be pressed even more when YouTube is added this year.
  • Scott Stein 6/10/2014 2:08:38 AM
    Share button pressed 220 million times, but not by me unless I was trying to call a time out in Madden.
  • Josh Miller 6/10/2014 2:08:48 AM
  • Jeff Bakalar 6/10/2014 2:09:24 AM
    Don't forget. YouTube bought Twitch.
  • Josh Miller 6/10/2014 2:10:20 AM
  • David Carnoy 6/10/2014 2:11:54 AM
    25 Free to Play games coming to PSN this year.
  • David Carnoy 6/10/2014 2:12:20 AM
    "Free to Play" really means free.
  • Scott Stein 6/10/2014 2:12:42 AM
    A lot of free to play shown for Vita. Competition against phones.
  • Josh Miller 6/10/2014 2:12:57 AM
  • David Carnoy 6/10/2014 2:13:12 AM
    "Certain features are available for a fee." Not surprising.
  • Jeff Bakalar 6/10/2014 2:13:13 AM
    PlayStation Now time, here we go
  • Josh Miller 6/10/2014 2:14:06 AM
  • Ian Sherr 6/10/2014 2:14:07 AM
    Shortly after, PS Now will become available on PS3 and Vita as well.
  • Josh Miller 6/10/2014 2:14:18 AM

  • Josh Miller 6/10/2014 2:14:38 AM
  • Ian Sherr 6/10/2014 2:14:39 AM
    Layden says later this year, PS Now is coming to select Sony televisions. All you need is a PlayStation controller and you can play the games.
  • David Carnoy 6/10/2014 2:15:00 AM
    July 31st for the open Beta on PS4...
  • Ian Sherr 6/10/2014 2:15:17 AM
    During the open beta, gamers get access to over 100 games, such as "Dead Space 3, "God of War: Ascension," and "Ultra Street Fighter 4" among others.
  • Scott Stein 6/10/2014 2:15:30 AM
    SFIV via PlayStation Now...that's a high-twitch game. Ambitious.
  • Josh Miller 6/10/2014 2:15:38 AM
  • David Carnoy 6/10/2014 2:15:44 AM
    Over 100 games will be available during open beta...
  • Jeff Bakalar 6/10/2014 2:15:58 AM
    Ahh, but there doesn't seem to be any kind of pricing structure just yet.
  • Ian Sherr 6/10/2014 2:16:08 AM
    Layden says PS Now on Vita is proof that Sony is dedicated to the platform.
  • David Carnoy 6/10/2014 2:16:13 AM
    No word on pricing...
  • Josh Miller 6/10/2014 2:17:12 AM
  • Ian Sherr 6/10/2014 2:17:15 AM
    There are more than 100 Vita titles in development today, Layden says, including "Child of Light," and "Tales from the Borderlands." "Minecraft" is also coming to Vita, he adds.
  • David Carnoy 6/10/2014 2:18:37 AM
    Here's PlayStation TV.
  • Ian Sherr 6/10/2014 2:18:53 AM
    Now, Sony announces PlayStation TV. It allows gamers to remotely play PlayStation 4 on a TV elsewhere in their room. It will also play most Vita titles, as well as some older games. "Disney Infinity" is also coming to the device. More than 1,000 games at launch, Layden says.

    It will be available for $99, he says. (Going right up against Apple TV.)
  • Josh Miller 6/10/2014 2:18:53 AM
  • David Carnoy 6/10/2014 2:18:59 AM
    Sony called it Vita TV before.
  • Josh Miller 6/10/2014 2:19:19 AM
  • Scott Stein 6/10/2014 2:20:00 AM
    It's like a Chromecast for your PS4. But it's also a micro console. Pretty interesting. Expensive, brilliant, affordable? Can't make my mind up on it.
  • David Carnoy 6/10/2014 2:20:14 AM
    $139 with PS3 controller. Same price as Amazon's Fire TV.

  • Jeff Bakalar 6/10/2014 2:22:56 AM
    Mortal Kombat X does an interesting job of showing fighting action in a 2.5D fashion. Digging it.
  • Josh Miller 6/10/2014 2:23:53 AM
  • Josh Miller 6/10/2014 2:27:48 AM
  • David Carnoy 6/10/2014 2:29:08 AM
    Powers TV show coming to PlayStation. In production now.
