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.

  • Ian Sherr 6/10/2014 12:36:10 AM
    Hi everyone, we're live at Sony's #E3 press conference, which starts in 24 minutes.
  • Scott Stein 6/10/2014 12:38:05 AM
    We're sitting down, getting ready. This morning was green, now everything's blue.
  • Scott Stein 6/10/2014 12:38:41 AM
    Wi-Fi is an interesting mess right now.
  • Scott Stein 6/10/2014 12:41:11 AM
    connectivity in this arena is always a mixed bag. Mixed being kind.
  • Scott Stein 6/10/2014 12:42:12 AM
    As opposed to Microsoft's E3 presser, which just focused on games, will Sony do more? We're expecting PlayStation Now details, and maybe more on Project Morpheus. And Sony has two consoles to manage: the PS4 and the Vita. Should be fun to watch.
  • Scott Stein 6/10/2014 12:43:54 AM
    No glow bands here.
  • Scott Stein 6/10/2014 12:46:35 AM
    But, as always, lots of people outside milling before event started. Hot sun in the parking lot.
  • dan.ackerman 6/10/2014 12:46:52 AM
    There's a real difference in the feel of these press conferences every year. Microsoft is very precise and ordered, almost militaristic. As one might expect from a buttoned-down software and services company.
  • Scott Stein 6/10/2014 12:47:17 AM
    This is the classic E3 party atmosphere, moreso than Microsoft.
  • Scott Stein 6/10/2014 12:47:42 AM
    Then there's Nintendo, which has backed out of these types of events completely.
  • dan.ackerman 6/10/2014 12:48:51 AM
    On the other hand, Sony is always bigger and broader, but also messier and less organized. Much as one might expect from a giant multinational media company with very varied divisions that don't always work well together.
  • Scott Stein 6/10/2014 12:50:10 AM
    I would do anything to change this arena venue.
  • Tapquad 6/10/2014 12:54:45 AM
    I am looking for more Air Display type but not from PSVita devices, from every room that you have a PS4-X (Extender) what do you think guys?
  • Tapquad 6/10/2014 12:54:51 AM
    PS4 should be a hub, a game server and connectivity no only from TV's but also with Tablets, Imagine playing COD on your iPad or your Nexus 7, iPhone etc etc...
  • Ian Sherr 6/10/2014 12:55:05 AM
    Ok, we're up and down, and up and down again. It's a seasaw of Internet connectivity. A roller coaster. A rolling sea. An unhappy ship. Whatever metaphore you choose, it's not an easy ride.

    It's all a long way of saying I don't know how long we'll be connected. But I'll keep it up as long as I can.
  • Lord_Guice 6/10/2014 12:57:54 AM
    I really want it to become the media Hub that the PS3 was, DNLA and video playing capabilities all codecs and where I can stream my stuff through!
  • Jeff Bakalar 6/10/2014 12:58:31 AM
    There are so many "The Last Guardian" rumors now that it's laughable. Everyone's in on the joke. Kinda hilarious.
  • John Falcone 6/10/2014 1:00:02 AM
    Folks: if we lose connectivity with L.A., David Carnoy will be jumping in to provide updates from the live video stream.
  • Jeff Bakalar 6/10/2014 1:03:36 AM
    I mean, 2 minutes!
  • David Carnoy 6/10/2014 1:06:14 AM
    OK, folks starting now.
  • Desiree DeNunzio 6/10/2014 1:06:54 AM

  • Josh Miller 6/10/2014 1:08:34 AM
  • Jeff Bakalar 6/10/2014 1:08:47 AM
    So, both Sony and Microsoft start things off with multi-platform games. Not a big stage-setter.
  • David Carnoy 6/10/2014 1:08:52 AM
    Well, there's Destiny. Not a platform exclusive.
  • Josh Miller 6/10/2014 1:08:56 AM
  • Ian Sherr 6/10/2014 1:09:00 AM
    Sony's event starts with "Destiny," the first mention of this game today. Sony has some sort of special deal with Activision over the title, so we'll likely hear about that.

    In the mean time, Andrew House, head of PlayStation, is on the stage.
  • John Falcone 6/10/2014 1:09:26 AM

    Sony's Andrew House

  • dan.ackerman 6/10/2014 1:09:47 AM
    Already, Sony is taking a different tack, talking up community and social features, rather than wall-to-wall games (yes, in the context of a game, but still).
  • Josh Miller 6/10/2014 1:09:48 AM
  • Josh Miller 6/10/2014 1:10:16 AM
  • dan.ackerman 6/10/2014 1:10:22 AM
    Interesting, both Destiny and Battlefield Hardline betas are coming to PS4 first, Xbox later, if at all.
  • Josh Miller 6/10/2014 1:10:23 AM


  • Josh Miller 6/10/2014 1:10:46 AM
  • David Carnoy 6/10/2014 1:10:52 AM
    July 17th for Destiny Beta. PS4 users get it first.
  • Ian Sherr 6/10/2014 1:10:57 AM
    House says his commitment is to the highest visual quality and of choice, as well as the ability to play with friends. "Destiny will help define this next generation of game."

    Destiny will be first on PlayStation, House says. The beta for the game launches July 17, first for PlayStation fans. And until then, PS4 customers can play the "first look alpha" starting Thursday.
  • Josh Miller 6/10/2014 1:11:00 AM
  • dan.ackerman 6/10/2014 1:11:27 AM
    And, a mention of hardware, even if it's just a white PS4 console. Microsoft hardly even mentioned the name the Xbox One console during its press conference.
  • David Carnoy 6/10/2014 1:11:27 AM
    You can play the Alpha even sooner.
  • Jeff Bakalar 6/10/2014 1:11:29 AM
    So does "playing it first" mean exclusive access to the beta?
  • Ian Sherr 6/10/2014 1:11:30 AM
    Next comes a white-colored PlayStation 4, with an exclusive "Destiny" bundle for when the game launches this fall. "Destiny looks stunning on PS4 and I know you'll love playing it on PlayStation."
