Last Guardian as a PS4 launch title would probably sell me the console on day one.

I would like to pre-pre-order it if possible. It would make me feel more comfortable to know that my pre-order will be secure.

They should allow people to pre-order immediately and then keep changing the delivery status to ambiguous terms such as "despatched", "sorting", and "collating" during the entire year leading up to the release date, just to fuck with people.

Rumors about Diablo III being annouced as a PS3 console exclusive are doing the rounds as well. Take with a grain of salt and all that.

If even half of the rumours flying around are true, it's going to be megaton central on Sony's stage. Surely they can't have anything left to genuinely surprise us with. Also, these publishers are going to have to figure out how to tighten up the multitude of leaks which seem to gush from retail.

Woud love that! Especially if game saves can come over from PC.

Presumably making Diablo III a PS3 exclusive would involve Blizzard having a big button that deleted all existing installations.

Is there an iPhone friendly stream for this conference by any chance?

I think the Gametrailers one is. They're good quality streams as well.

I often wonder about this. If they wanted to keep the games secret, they'd tell retailers after the announcement. Retail leaks create chatter, chatter increases interest. Maybe Sony just like to have people talk about a potential leak and then drop the details a few days later. There is certainly a pattern for Sony's HD classics for example, they almost always leak out from retail and Sony sit on it for a day or two before confirming with details. If they wanted to stop this, they'd have stopped informing retailers.

It's the old Yes Minister routine. Half of the leaks are probably done purposely while maintaining a air of it being accidental. Hardware is the exception. Software leaks are often beneficial, hardware leaks are almost never helpful.

I don't put much stock in retailer listings, personally. Sometimes they're on the money but there have been just as many of instances of complete inaccuracy. Those Vita listings mentioned earlier, for example: the RE listing is no doubt back from when the PSP game was announced, whilst MGS was likely born of the tech demo at NGP's announcement event; they've a similar listing for Lost Planet 2.

That said, I'd totally buy Diablo 3 if I could play it with a controller/on Vita. This might seem sacrilegious but I hate using a mouse for that type of game, especially with ranged characters.

If Diablo 3 is an exclusive I'd imagine that it's because Sony are willing to make concessions regarding always online DRM and the real money auction house.

Sony already have that DRM available to use. A few Capcom games used it.

Annoying that they chose such an awkward time for us Europeans. Can't imagine how shit I'd feel staying up til 4 or 5 if it's anything like Microsoft's conference.

So what are we expecting from Sony? They have so many games that they can't show them all and they have to focus on both the PS3 and Vita. They'll probably show AC3, their new IP (The Last of Us and Beyond), the new God of War and perhaps some character reveals for Battle Royale. That alone would make it way more varied than the MS one.

Not staying up for this, actually depressed after MS's and I doubt this will be much better. I guess it's just to be expected at the end of a lifecycle.

Sony's show could be infinitely more interesting just by showing a crapload of games. I can't believe there was so much Kinect and lifestyle rubbish in the MS conference.

I'm really hoping for ports of Uncharted 1 + 2 on the Vita. I know its not a huge thing, but I would love to be able to play U2 on the train - without any of the touchscreen guff from Golden Abyss, of course.

No wonder Naughty Dog wanted to change Ellie from The Last of Us to look less like Ellen Page.

This is the first time I will say this in years:

Sony, please save mainstream gaming. I don't want to have to go back to join the master race. I like playing games sat on the sofa, and I don't mean on my phone.

So what are we expecting from Sony?

The only people staying up to watch it are deparate Vita owners looking for consolation of future games, so I expect when the rest of us come in to check what's announced tomorrow they'll have teamed up and tell us a bunch of madeup stuff that we can't verify. Ken Kutaragi was there via Tupac hologram! Shenmue 3 Vita! Apple going 3rd party! etc

If they don't do that now I'll be disappointed.

It says on their blog "

The live E3 broadcast begins this

Monday, June 4th at 5:30pm Pacific/8:30pm Eastern

with the PlayStation E3 2012 Press Conference" so is the time here wrong. Should it be 1:30pm or 2:30pm?
