Hopefully, Sony will have a lot more to show off at its E3 press conference on Monday evening.
In February, Sony managed to hold a launch event for its next-generation Playstation 4 without actually showing off the console. The presentation, which touted the gadget's online capabilities, a new controller, and a lot more processing and graphical muscle, raised a lot of questions.
Maybe Sony will reveal more during its E3 event, which kicks off at 6 p.m. PT. Our live blog will begin 30 minutes earlier to field reader questions. We will also embed the E3 presentation into the live blog itself, so you won't have to go anywhere for your total Sony video game fix.
CNET editors Jeff Bakalar, Eric Franklin, Dan Ackerman, Scott Stein, Josh Miller, and myself will be on hand to provide live news updates, commentary, and photos.
Sony is expected to unveil the hardware for the PlayStation 4, as well as go through its early lineup. The pressure will be on to outdo Microsoft, which holds its Xbox One E3 presentation earlier the same day. As with the Xbox One, the Playstation 4 launches at a time when mobile gaming has exploded in popularity and some question the need for more consoles.
The company, meanwhile, could also slash the price of the Playstation 3 in anticipation of the launch of the next-generation system.
CNET will use ScribbleLive to bring you live text and photos, blow by blow. Check back in Monday evening for the latest news.
