PlayStation E3 2013 Press Conference: Live Blog

PlayStation E3 2013 Press Conference: Live Blog

PlayStation are set to unveil the PS4 console.

We're bringing you the big E3 2013 press conferences - straight from Los Angeles, direct to New Zealand.

In addition to this live blog, have a direct video stream of the conference - you can find that here.

PlayStation will be unveiling the actual PS4 console - their previous reveal event only showed the controller and detailed the tech-specs. What will it look like, and are there any other features we don't know about yet?

The Vita should also make an appearance, no doubt there'll be new games announced for the handheld platform.

The PS4 is set to have a raft of first and third-party titles - let us know in the comments below what you're looking out for!

Live Text Updates Follow. (Showing newest first):

3:04 - And that's the PlayStation conference done! There's a lot of talking points here. Stay tuned for our full coverage.

3:03 - Big applause for that pricing. Andrew House wraps things up and thanks everyone for coming.

3:02 - The PlayStation 4 will be available for $399 USD. 399 Euros and 349 Pounds in the UK. Standby for New Zealand pricing!

3:01 - PlayStation's cloud gaming service will be available in the US in 2014, which will allow gamers to access a huge catalog of games via Gaikai. That'll be for older PlayStation titles to be playable on PS4, PS3 and Vita.

2:59 - Andrew House announes that they have established some sort of exclusive deal for PS4 and Destiny. But it doesn't appear to be a full-title exclusivitiy. Perhaps just DLC.

2:58 - They take down a giant tank. A cinematic takes over. We see some of the storyline elements. It's a gorgeous looking game.

2:56 - We emerge on the other side of the wall. Player 3 enters the frey, and all three of them work to take down even more enemies.

2:55 - There's loot on the enemy when they get taken down. And weapon customisation/upgrades. FPS-RPG?

2:53 - One of the guys die, however the other continues and eventually revives the other.

2:52 - A bit of action. Enemy robot-alien-creatures appear. A few well placed shots and they're taken down.

2:51 - Two players walk through pipe-laden walkways. It's very dark. We're trying to get through a massive wall. What did it seperate..?

2:51 - The demo is stuttering again, similar to the Assassin's Creed IV one. Have they tried turning it off and on again?

2:47 - A robotic/alien creature appears. The first-person shooter is set in a futuristic Russia that looks a bit beat up.

2:47 - From Bungie and Activision. It's the gameplay premier of Destiny.

2:46 - Jack lists of some of the PS4 titles that will come to PS Plus for free; Driveclub, Don't Starve, Outlast and Secret Ponchos.

2:45 - PS4 gamers that aren't PS Plus members will be able to play all their single player games. Does that mean online multiplayer requires PS Plus?

2:45 - "Members will have access to all the benefits across PlayStation 3, Vita, and PlayStation 4 for one price."

2:45 - "I'm pleased to confirm that your PS Plus membership will carry over to PlayStation 4."

2:44 - They're really putting the digs in to Microsoft. And the audience loves it.

2:44 - "PS4 won't require you to check-in online periodically. And it won't stop working if you haven't authenticated within 24 hours."

2:44 - "In addition, PlayStation 4 disc-based games don't need to be connected online to play. Or for any type of authentication."

2:43 - "When a gamer buys a PS4 game disc, they have the right to trade in, sell to another friend, leave it or keep it forever.". Another massive cheer. A "Sony, Sony, Sony!" chant starts up.

2:42 - Seriously. The crowd is going wild.

2:41 - "PlayStation 4 won't impose any new restrictions on used games." MASSIVE applause for that one.

2:38 - Jack Tretton takes the stage again.

2:37 - In a new trailer, a man lies face down in a desert. Another man drives up to him. "Kill me" the dying man says. The other has one shot in his gun, but he doesn't pull the trigger. He drives away... then turns around and drives the man down. Mad Max.

2:35 - The Elder Scrolls Online is heading to PS4. The trailer shows gameplay footage, and it's coming in 2014.

2:34 - A short presentation from 2K for NBA 2K14.

2:33 - PS4 owners will receive an "exclusive hour of gameplay".

2:32 - The police are back on Aiden. A helicopter is called in. Aiden is running. He fakes surrender before taking out power to the entire city to mask his escape from the police on boat. Yes, that sounds epic. It is.

2:31 - Aiden sets up a few distractions with his mad hacking skills for the police. T-Bone escapes.

2:30 - He meets up with T-Bone. They've got to get out of here without being spotted by the police.

2:29 - People inside go about their business as the TV news reporter talks about how Aiden is wanted by the police. Very timely.

2:28 - The protaganist, Aiden, is racing about in his fancy-pants car, skidding around corners. He reaches his destination and walks inside.

2:26 - The objective in this demo? Reach T-Bone. The HUD displays a map with various indicators on it.

2:25 - Time for Watch Dogs. Jonathan Morin from Ubisoft is here to show off a demo.

2:24 - In probably one of the more cringe-worthy endings to a game demo, the logo comes on screen as the developer hangs his head.

2:23 - The game freezes for a few seconds. Awkward. Edward slices and dices and shoots what we assume are the bad pirates. The game freezes again. Uh-oh.

2:22 - He's been spotted. Get out the guns! He walks to a ledge to see incoming ships from the sea. The village is ablaze as he runs and jumps through, eventually taking control of a ship.

2:20 - The main character, Edward, walks through and out into the woods. He creeps beneath the shubbery, and climbs about. The gameplay demo appears to keep stuttering, which isn't a great look.

2:19 - Gameplay footage of Assassin's Creed IV. There's a village of pirates, busy doing piratey things.

2:18 - Final Fantasy XIV (note, that's 14 not 15) will be coming exclusively to consoles on PS4 and PS4.

2:17 - Kingdom Hearts III to be exact. Brief battle action is shown. "Now in Development".

2:16 - One more trailer. It's Kingdom Hearts! Sora is back with his keyblade.

2:15 - Apparently Final Fantasy Versus XIII is now known as Final Fantasy XV. The logo smashes and the new one is displayed.

2:13 - The battle system looks more like Devil May Cry than Final Fantasy of past eras.

2:12 - People are running across a field. "A fantasy based on reality". A man convinces his son (?) to eat his food. This is Final Fantasy Versus XIII.

2:12 - Square Enix has a video message for us. A trailer.

2:11 - Diablo III will have exclusive items on PS3 from PlayStation franches, like Drake's amulet from Uncharted.

2:09 - That's a huge load of indie games coming to PS4.

2:09 - Galak-Z from 17-bit Games.

2:08 - Oddworld: New and Tasty (a remake of the original)!

2:07 - More indie games to be available on PlayStation are shown. Don't Starve. Mercenary Kings. Octodad: Dadliest Catch. Secret Ponchos. Ray's the Dead. Outlast.

2:05 - They've made a game for the PS4. It's Transistor. It's a top-down, platforming, carton, action game.

2:04 - Another team is partnering with PlayStation. Supergiant Games. They're the creators of Bastion.

2:03 - Third-party games are about to be shown. Adam Boyes, VP of third-party relations takes the stage.

2:02 - The full demo will be shown at the E3 show tomorrow.

2:01 - Hah! It cuts to a green-screen where the sorcer and elf are just actors and they're acting out a scene on a set. It all looks stunning.

1:59 - A tech-demo trailer called "The Dark Sorcerer" is shown. As tech-demos go, it looks impressive. Great fire effects. A Dobby-like elf creature is hanging out in the background. The sorcerer is yelling all kinds of things.

1:58 - Killzone, Driveclub and Knack will be coming for the PS4 launch. InFamous will be availble Q1 2014.

1:57 - Knack. This is a more animated looking game, but we barely see a few seconds of it.

1:56 - inFAMOUS Second Son. Two brothers argue while a world is in ruins. "You're not a normal bio-terrorist". We see the superpowers in actin. It looks like a lot of fun.

1:55 - Driveclub. Cars race around bends, drifting, kicking up dust. Racing through the forest-laden roads.

1:54 - Killzone: Shadow Fall is up first. It's first-person-shooter-tastic.

1:53 - "Next, I'd like to share with you the latest updates on the four new titles we announced in February,".

1:51 - The first new IP is from Santa Monica Studios and Ready At Dawn. It's exclusive to PS4. We see horse-drawn carriages and soldiers with impressive guns. It appears to be set in London. It's called The Order: 1886.

1:50 - Over 30 PS4 titles in development. 20 of them will launch within the first year. 12 of them are brand new IPs.

1:49 - He tells us they've been looking at how gamers play games. A whole lot of tweets fill up the screen.

1:48 - Shuhei Yoshida, head of Worldwide Studios is here to talk new games.

1:47 - "At it's core, the PS4 is about bringing breakthrough gaming experiences".

1:45 - Andrew House is back on stage. Music Unlimited and Video Unlimited will be available on launch day. Plus things like Netflix, MLB TV, Redbox Instant by Verizon (US only).

1:44 - "Cutting edge programming that is developed with gamers in mind. "

1:43 - Sony Pictures is hard at work on original progamming plan for the PlayStation 4.

1:42 - He's talking about how Sony Pictures and Sony Music will work with PlayStation to make everything awesome.

1:41 - Sony Pictures CEO Michael Lynton takes the stage. He's here to talk entertainment.

1:39 - It's a slightly skewed black box. Half matte, half glossy. There's a horizontal line that appears to split it in two.

1:38 - "We know gamers can't wait to see the PS4 product design. It is a design that is sleek and visually impactful wherever it is placed. Ladies and gentlemen, I'm thrilled to introduce, the PlayStation 4."

1:37 - PS4 time! Andrew House, SCE president and CEO takes the stage.

1:36 - There'll be a Grand Theft Auto V PS3 bundle available on September 17th bundle which will include a headset.

1:36 - There'll be exclusive content for PS3, including a 1960's style batman skin.

1:35 - Batman Arkham Origins is available 25th October worldwide.

1:34 - A trailer for Batman Arkham Origins is shown. It features Bane, and he "wants the Bat dead".

1:33 - "Not too shabby for a platform in its seventh year huh?" Jack Tretton is back on stage.

1:30 - Gran Turismo 6! We don't even need to tell you that it looks incredible. But we're going to anyway; it looks incredible.

1:29 - Now onto Beyond. It reminds us that it stars Ellen Page and Willem Dafoe. It's a mix of moving narrative, and hard-hitting action.

1:28 - Next up is Rain, from Japan Studio. A short wet, rainy, trailer.

1:27 - Onto Puppeteer, the LittleBigPlanet-esque platformer. The E3 trailer for this has been released already, check it out on our homepage.

1:26 - We're taking a look at The Last of Us, which releases this week on PS3. We gave it 9.8/10 in our review.

1:25 - "We're making Vita the ultimate companion device for PlayStation 4".

1:24 - Games heading to Vita: Dedad Nation, Final Fantasy X Remaster, God of War Collection, Flower, and Telltale's The Walking Dead.

1:23 - "The platform will only get stronger in 2013, as the indie community continues its support."

1:22 - "Vita is just beginning it's lifecycle". There are more than 125 dedicated games.

1:22 - We'll be covering PS3 and Vita before the PS4 news.

1:21 - "In February we unveilved the most advanced gaming system ever created". "Tonight we look forward to revisiting why those of involved in creating this groundbreaking entertainment can't wait to bring it to you."

1:20 - Tretton is thanking all the fans for being.. fans.

1:19 - Jack Tretton, SCEA executive takes the stage.

1:18 - Various PlayStation games are shown on screen. We see Tekken, a dance game, Grand Theft Auto V, Gran Turismo and more. All very brief glimpses.

1:17 - Here we go! The PlayStation shapes and things are shown on the screen.

1:16 - "We're going to begin in one minute!" a booming voice tells us.

1:15 - We would promise that things are going to start shortly, but we're not in charge of things around here. We live in hope.

1:09 - Still waiting for things to start. We don't expect it to be much longer.

1:00pm - We're just about to kick things off! Stand-by.

At least Playstation came up with a name for the next console that isn't counting backwards like Xbox did. I hope to go to E3 one of these days, for real.

AkSys Games have revealed that they will be making a couple of announcements at E3 - I'm hoping that at least one of them has something to do with Guilty Gear.

That said, AkSys publishes more than just Arc System Works games these days, so it could be anything.

Going to be interesting on how much Sony reveal. Sure we will get to see the hardware finally and alot of games, but wonder if they will go into detail about all the features and be upfront with them... i expect some similar features like the xbox one ie used games/game sharing restrictions... be interesting whether they disclose it upfront or stay out of it for now... M$ Xbox One opened a can of worms so look forward to how Sony will deal with it :)

Sony's first chance to make sure they get a better pre-launch story than MS...
Sounds like the base hardware is very similar, so it's going to be down to what happens around the edges to differentiate these two... (a more imaginative box design would go a long way...)

I was trying to decide out of the PS4 and the XBox One which I wanted to buy when they get released. Since I haven't ever bought a new new console when they've come out, and probably will have lost interest in buying one when the next models come out. But I'm just going to save up for a PS4, they just sound more interesting at the moment. =)

+1 for everybody!

These might sound like minor things to you guys, but all I actually want from PS4 is one good driving game and the ability to plug my logitech wheel into it.

Also no online requirements, second hand sales blocks, camera restrictions and all that other BS. Mainly the car game thing.

- The spotlight beaming down from the stars, revealing a gleaming Kazuo Hirai, holding aloft with outstretched arms, the brand new, as yet unseen Playstation 4 console in all of its glory!

Hmm, I can't help but think the two major corporations worked in conjunction with each other on these designs!

I mean, that's pretty crazy how similar the concept is :)

I assume it's PC and PS4?

PS3 and PS4 probably, since PC isn't a console :P

I'm sold on PS4, Xbone doesn't even come close. I'm even tempted to save up and get one on launch, despite my general belief that launch console are riddled with early life cycle problems and lacklustre libraries. We will see.

Seems that way. They tactically talked their way around it. I guess there had to be a drawback on that release price. Although Xbone will still require their subscription service.

PS Plus is actually a pretty good deal. After my complementary access via the competition NZGamer ran, I will be subscribing. If they continue to offer up exclusives, free titles etc via PS Plus in the future, then paying for online access won't seem as much of an issue.

But it remains to be seen.

Yeah that's how I took it too which is a bit of a bummer. BUT PS+ has offered incredible value for money so far so I'll be continuing my sub for sure.

$399! that’s $500nzd, less than half of the PS3′s launch price! I think this’ll be the first time I’ll buy a console at launch. Biggest disappointment would be that multiplayer is for Plus only, but that's not so bad as most people already pay for IGC alone. Adding Drive Club free at launch just sweetens the deal.

Was expecting to see some of The Last Guardian, guess they're saving that for TGS 2013.

MightyApe have been told $649 will be the launch price.
....
@Mightyape - "our gorilla at the Sony E3 conference spoke with SonyNZ boss - PS4 confirmed for $649 NZD, will launch for Xmas in NZ "

Still cheap, that's what i paid for my PS3 some 3 years after its launch lol

I'm really impressed with the price of both consoles this year. Comparing them to the prices of last generation consoles on release, it is a huge improvement. May even consider buying them both, only a couple hundred more than I was expecting to pay for one.

From what I can gather certain multiplayer online games will require a Playstation Plus Membership, and honestly if they keep it like it is now (Playstation Plus that is) it's worth it. My only slight gripe with Plus is both my partner and I have to have a membership to use the cloud storage to use between both our consoles where as we only would need one membership if it was purely about getting the content.
