“Well, it’s here: E3 is just two days away and I’m packing my bags as we speak. This year’s PlayStation press conference should be very interesting and I’m happy to say that you’ll be able to watch it live here on PlayStation.Blog. However, you’ll need to either stay up quite late or get up very early; the press conference begins at 1am BST/2am CET/10am Sydney.
As the week progresses we’ll be bringing you some exciting video broadcasts live from the show floor. I’ll also be bashing my fists against a keyboard, taking pictures and tweeting like a Justin Bieber fan to try and bring you as much news as you can stomach. Here’s your recap.”
