PlayStation Neo and PSVR expected to be Sony’s E3 focus.

Sony’s E3 2016 Press Conference – or strictly speaking, Media Briefing – is now confirmed as taking place on Monday 13th June at 6PM, PT. It will be held at Los Angeles’ Shrine Auditorium & Expo Hall, which is a hop and a skip from E3’s home at the Los Angeles Convention Center.

Sony’s media briefings are never short on spectacle, although one might argue they are occasionally short on substance. Last year’s briefing saw the announcement of Final Fantasy VII Remastered, Shenmue III, Horizon: Zero Dawn and a full reveal of The Last Guardian.


This year we expect to hear more about the games coming to PSVR and details of the rumoured PlayStation 4 upgrade.

Earlier on 13th June, at 9:30AM, Microsoft will hold their press conference which will detail the latest game announcements and news for Xbox One and Windows 10.

We have a favour to ask

Thumbsticks has a couple of main aims. We want to write interesting articles and cover games that most outlets won't, and we want to give opportunities to new writers and new voices. And right now, with the current state of online publishing? It's tough! We hate to ask, but if you want us to continue writing what others won't, or to keep covering weird indie games, or to be able to give opportunities to new writers – and only if you can afford it – then please consider supporting us on Patreon.
