Sony's E3 2017 Press Conference Dated

Mark your calendars for June 12.

84 Comments

Sony has begun sending out invites to the press for its E3 press briefing, confirming the event's time and date.

The PlayStation E3 Media Showcase, as it's officially called, will take place on Monday, June 12, at 6 PM PT/9 PM ET (2 AM GMT on June 13). Sony is headed back to the Shrine Auditorium and Expo Hall in Los Angeles, the same location as last year's event.

No Caption Provided

This is the usual timeslot Sony has occupied for its E3 briefing, just ahead of the conference's start later in the week. Microsoft, on the other hand, has moved its standard Monday briefing back to Sunday, June 11, when Bethesda will also have its now-annual briefing. EA's EA Play will be taking place from June 10-12.

Sony didn't provide any word of what it'll be showing, but you can expect it to be the usual array of upcoming games for PlayStation 4 and (hopefully) PlayStation Vita. There's no indication that it'll talk about new hardware amidst a recent rumor that it will introduce a next-gen PlayStation system in 2018.

As always, GameSpot will bring you all the news from Sony's conference--and all of E3--in June.

New console next year!? Haha, well that's ok. Judging from the ps4 it'll take probably until 2021 to justify a purchase of that new console. That's how long it took before it made sense to buy a ps4. 1st year had nothing (i wanted to buy it, but i couldn't because of the lack of games), 2nd year had Bloodborne (my reason to finally buy the console) and the Witcher, 3rd year had Dark Souls 3 and Uncharted 4, 4th year..., well we're at the beginning of May and there were already more interesting games than the last 3 years combined.

What exactly are they thinking?

This would be the perfect opportunity for them to release the world premiere trailer for the Resident Evil 2 remake!

Make it happen Sony!

@Simulator_Shock: It's the one i'm looking forward to the most as well. But why would it run during Sony's conference? Hoping for an end of this year release.

@lonesamurai1: I think they go after Microsoft so they can have a good laugh before their event, think it will help calm the nerves.

@lonesamurai1: Undeservedly?

If anything, that shows how much they do deserve gamers' business with intelligent marketing and reacting to their competition, appropriately.

Bloodborne 2 fellas, the rumors are running wild.

A man can dream.

@nadsat-77: Don't know. They barely had enough ideas for weapons in the original game. Or do you think it was on purpose?

I loved Bloodborne and played the hell out of it, but i was fed up with it much faster than any other Souls game. The two main reasons for that were from my perspective: lack of weapons and therefore lack of builds, AND barely any incentive to start ng+ cycles (yes the game got harder like other Souls games, but unlike other Souls games the content got smaller on ng+ cycles, because bosses didn't drop anything that felt like a reward anymore, if you already got their badge on ng, they drop a madman's knowledge, tsss, and there were no new items or new enemies).

I'd rather see a new take on Souls, just like Bloodborne was, but then not Bloodborne 2 and instead a completely new setting like Space Souls.

@RaveNRolla: I adore Bloodborne but i can't argue with your points, gameplay wise it's way more straight forward than Dark Souls that's true, but on the other hand nothing can beat its visual style and atmosphere in my opinion.

Other high points to me are the music, the world/story and the fast paced combat.

You are absolutely right on the lack of content though, but maybe its because it was a new IP and a exclusive, now that it has a solid fanbase maybe things can turn out differently. I can't deny i'm excited anyway.

@nadsat-77: I can't argue with your points either. Bloodborne was a blast to play and the (Cursed) Dungeons you had to farm for the best Bloodgems were tough as hell (oh those red spider summoners, still haunting me).

Needless to say i would get Bloodborne 2 day 1, but i would also like the Devs to explore some new ideas/directions for this style of Action-RPG.

@Rambolike: I thought it already came down lol

Matter of fact, it's been coming down since E3 2013 xD

Announcing a new Playstation console would mean the PS4 Pro is a totally Flop!

So much of it being a mid-gen console.
