Sony isn't waiting for E3 2018, will reveal 3+ PlayStation games early

Here's where to watch.

When his parents denied him a Super NES, he got mad. When they traded a prize Sega Genesis for a 2400 baud modem, he got even. Years of Internet shareware, eBay'd possessions and video game testing jobs after that, he joined Engadget. He helped found The Verge, and later served as Gizmodo's reviews editor. When he's not madly testing laptops, apps, virtual reality experiences, and whatever new gadget will supposedly change the world, he likes to kick back with some games, a good Nerf blaster, and a bottle of Tejava.

I'm not going to the Electronic Entertainment Expo (E3) next week. I'm following my own advice. And today's news is already making me feel justified -- because Sony has just announced that it will be revealing some of its game announcements before the show even starts.

Starting Wednesday, June 6, the company will spoil one announcement each and every day for five days in a row. Sony is being tight-lipped about the details, but those announcements will include:

  • Three brand-new PS4 games (including two with PlayStation VR support)
  • One "eagerly anticipated game" that's now coming to PlayStation VR as well
  • One release date for "an upcoming Worldwide Studios title".

Each announcement will arrive at 8 a.m. PT / 11 a.m. ET at live.playstation.com, and presumably also where this news was announced: Sony's PlayStation Blog.

By the way, CNET as a whole most definitely will be at E3. We might even see you there in person.
