E3 2015: Sony Dates PlayStation Press Conference, Will PS4 Surprise?

PlayStation 4

Sony is the last of the big three console makers to announce its E3 2015 plans. Microsoft is set with the Xbox One as is Nintendo with the Wii U and 3DS. The PlayStation 4 plans finally came into view Friday though the picture of what will be on display is murkier at the moment.

The E3 2015 PlayStation Press Conference will take place on Monday, June 15 at 9 p.m. ET / 6 p.m. PT at the L.A. Memorial Sports Arena, per GameSpot. That puts it well after Microsoft’s Xbox showing that same day at 12:30 p.m. ET and before Nintendo’s Digital Event on Tuesday at noon ET.

Major publishers will be on hand as well with their E3 press conferences with Bethesda, Electronic Arts, Ubisoft, and Square Enix all hosting media events between Sunday and Tuesday along with a PC Gaming Show put on by graphics card maker, AMD.

So what does Sony have planned for E3 2015? That’s a very good question following the PlayStation 4’s stellar debut at E3 2013 followed by last year’s solid showing. The answer right now is nobody is really sure what is up Sony’s sleeve.

More news and footage on Uncharted 4: A Thief’s End is definitely expected despite its delay to early 2016. Meanwhile, God of War III Remastered is a given with its planned release for July 14.

Sony hasn’t talked much about the PlayStation 4’s upcoming exclusive games lineup though, especially when it comes to AAA level titles. In fact, one Sony executive recently touted Tearaway and No Man’s Sky as reasons why the company isn’t worried about its fall lineup. The former is a remake of a PS Vita game that didn’t sell well while the latter is an intriguing, but still largely unknown commodity even if Sony says it is treating it like a first-party title.

“I won’t go into any detail now,” Sony’s Fergal Gara told MCV. “There is plenty for gamers to get excited about already, such as Tearaway for PS4 and No Man’s Sky. That’s just the start of what is on the table right now. So I don’t have any concerns that we will have a lack of strong software for PS4 this peak.”

The Project Morpheus Virtual Reality headset that works with the PS4 may get a full showing. What games will be on tap is an unknown quantity though for both the console and the headset.
