Sony confirms a new app is now online on the PS4 PSN store doe download which will have all sorts of things such as streaming of Sony's conference, pre-show events and all sorts of interviews after the E3 show.

This year we thought we’d make it a little easier to get a taste of the experience with our new E3 2014 app on PS4.

Through this app you’ll be able to watch our E3 press conference live from the comfort of your couch (or hammock, if you’re really cool). Once we’ve announced everything at the press conference and the show floor opens on June 10th at 12pm PDT, you’ll be able to check out some screenshots and trailers of the games at our booth. You’ll also see some other things we’ll be unveiling, and an overview of our current and future services, like PlayStation Plus and PlayStation Now.

This app isn’t just for browsing though — you can also unlock some perks by using the app. To start, there are gold and silver challenges you can complete in the app that will grant you up to 250 Sony Rewards points – these points will be available to unlock until June 24th. You can get other goodies through the app too, including an Amazon Prime 30-day trial and a Music Unlimited 30-day trial. For the early birds out there, during the show we’ll have 6,000 invites per day for the PlayStation Now Private Beta on PS4, starting June 10th at 12pm PDT. Make sure to log in early to secure your invite!

I believe you'll also be able to party chat while using the app to watch the conference ( which i think is pretty neat ).

Shame it's just for the PS4 :S I'd love seeing the E3 stream on my HD TV. Ah well...

pretty sure most of E3 will be on spike TV. also MS will have it on the xbox one as always. I'll be at work though so can't make use of any apps. I'll just stream it from some site.

You can always make a U.S account and download it from there by using the PS4 itself or a PC browser

That's cool. I'll wait for a video compilation of the announcements. It takes too long.

They've been doing it for the last couple of years I believe. That's how I watch it last year. It'll be on Spike TV anyways and I don't think there will be any commercials.

It's been available on Playstation through PS Home for a few years too.

They are building that hype. They are good at it. Behind the facade though is a desperate, dying company that will barely have a show worth watching.

Well food stamps will only take you so far nowadays.
