Watch Sony’s 2013 E3 PlayStation 4 press conference live at 6 p.m.

June 10, 2013 | 4:12 p.m.

Gamers can get a first look at the upcoming PlayStation 4 video game console during Sony’s media briefing this evening at 6 p.m. PDT.

Sony is also expected to discuss the future of the PlayStation 3 and the PS Vita handheld console at the event, which comes before the annual Electronic Entertainment Expo, or E3, the largest video game trade show in the world.

Hero Complex readers can watch the media event, streamed live from the Los Angeles Memorial Sports Arena, in the video above.

Although E3’s doors at the Los Angeles Convention Center won’t open until early Tuesday, heavy hitters such as Microsoft, Sony, Electronic Arts and Ubisoft were holding arena-sized conferences Monday to get ahead of – and control — the media cycle.


For Sony, the stakes are high after the company avoided showing the new console at the PlayStation 4’s reveal event in February, instead offering a slick 30-second teaser featuring close-up video of the console’s edges and vents.

Sony is also expected to unveil gameplay footage from the highly anticipated first-person shooter “Destiny,” from former “Halo” developer Bungie and distributor Activision. “Destiny” lets gamers plays the role of a guardian tasked with protecting the last safe city on Earth and reportedly features some massively multiplayer role-playing elements and online capabilities that will enable players to experience the aspects of the universe in real time. A part-CGI, part-live-action trailer directed by Jon Favreau (“Iron Man”) was released in May but did not feature any gameplay footage.

Sony no doubt has several surprises up its sleeve, and the presentation, which follows Microsoft’s media briefing this morning, will push the PS4 vs. Xbox One console war into full swing. Both next-generation consoles are slated for release in time for the holiday season.

Check out Sony’s media briefing at 6 p.m. PDT in the video at the top of the post, watch a trailer for Sony’s event in the video directly above and take a look at the February PS4 unveiling in the gallery below.

    I'm the first poster on this board!! I already saw Microsoft's earlier today and I am so excited for Sony's!

  2. eMK-xNOS-x1 says:

    Being a PS3 supporter and laughing at the first Xbox One reveal event, I was actually impressed with the Microsoft E3 event. Sony needs to open up with a bang.

  3. Will says:

    Whats the name of the song playing on the video?

  4. michael says:

    which one to buy ps4 or xbox one preordering tomorrow help me choose

  5. Ben T. says:

    MS screwed up as soon as they said $499. If Sony can push the PS4 at $450 or preferably $400 it's going to be a real a$$blast for the Xbone.

    I don't own either current gen system but I'm pulling for Sony this go around.

    • Joe says:

      Hey man, last time Sony was more expensive then XBOX, largely due to a blueray player which Microsoft has included this year. Do you think a price point that is less then the purchase of one game is really going to make a big difference? People are much more likely to buy what they feel will have the best games. If they are a big Halo fan I don't see them going Sony no matter what.

  6. @mrbum21 says:

    eMK, I do agree that MS did a great job showing their games, but the didn't address any of the confusion that is still floating around their system.

  7. colin says:

  25. jordan says:

  26. Joel says:

    PS4 Just announced they will back user based games, and back USERS RIGHTS. Very important word. NO DRM!!!!!!!!

    NO FEES!

    No check Ins!

    Won't stop working if you haven't authenticated.

    No kinect either… Privacy more guaranteed any attachments OPTIONAL. (User Choice!)

    All perks with this thing!

    Will have access to all games across VITA, PS3, and PS4

    Price: 399 PWNED

    I never though I would say this, but later Xbox! You didn't address this today and you should have.

    12 years loving Xbox and after an EA move of your bottom line taking precedence over me you alienated us. Not the only one either it is blowing up all over the Web.

    True Consumer ownership! And Consumer trust! They have earned it!

  27. abbrim says:

    seen the new ps4 …yes a crown holder!!!

  28. Xerses says:

    Ps4 destroyed Xbox One microsoft even with THEM controlling what we can do want 499 for their console yea and ps4 wants 399 ps4 earns next generation for their as like to call affordable freedom playstation four

  29. Vaughn24 says:

    I'm honestly a hard core Xbox gamer, but I like what both of these platforms have brought to the table. If you look up the specs for both systems, their performance don't differentiate much. When it all boils down to it, most people choose a Playstion or Xbox series over another because they have such biased attitudes for the systems they already owned. This guy here does not. I'm going to give both consoles a shot and buy them both.

  30. Max says:

    The Xbox cost more due to the fact that it can do more its m,ore user friendly and it's got more in it

  31. Kato Luna says:

    Well, personally, I think that both the Playstation 4 and XboX One, the Playstation has more advantage in spoken use, on the other hand, the XboX One, for all, is required to use the kinect, well, apparently there will be no backward compatibility for the Playstation 4, but hey, I agree that is the most wanted, by what they say.

  32. Kato Luna says:

    Playstation 4, the winner!!
