Three down one to go! I'm about to head downstairs to Easy Hours - it's at times like this you realise why Rupert decided to set the EG office above a 24-hour convenience store. Can I get anyone anything?
Last but not least (in every sense - PlayStation events are about 800 hours long), Sony rounds off Monday's pre-E3 press conference schedule, hopefully with a bang loud enough to keep us awake through the early hours of Tuesday morning back in the UK and Europe. Festivities begin at 2am BST / 3am CEST.
We'll be blogging and watching live here from that time and we hope those of you with exceptional stamina will also join us. Sony has its own questions to answer about second-hand games and game ownership, which may or may not happen during its conference, but we should see more of games like Killzone: Shadow Fall and DriveClub as well as new delights for PS4, PS3 and PS Vita.
Will we see The Box and will Sony tell us The Price? £429 to beat.
Jim Ryan, with one too many shirt buttons undone.
Or one too few, from my perspective.
Meanwhile, here's Jack Tretton and a Chewbacca.
I love how he's keeping it real with Chewbacca. Probably about to show him a picture of the kids.
"Not my kids, Chewie - our kids."
Mark Cerny and Yu Suzuki together, all but confirming Shenmue 3 as a PS4 exclusive.
Also it's Yu Suzuki's birthday today. Happy birthday sir!
What you can't see from the cropping is that they're both sat in forklifts.
Days gone by.
Mark Cerny demonstrates his wistful look. He calls it "Marble Sadness".
Tretton's early days.
Naturally you're waiting to hear how PlayStation Home will survive the generational transition. Christian, why don't you tell us?
I logged on once, made a very bruised-looking avatar, and then it crashed when I tried to delete everything. Then I chilled on the deck.
I wonder if Sony has any special guests lined up. It's a long-shot but what about DayZ's Dean Hall? That'd be a turn up for the books.
Know it's a port, but I hope they date Spelunky Vita. It's going to look so good on that screen.
We're hoping to see a PS4 game made by Naughty Dog - maybe Uncharted 4. It'd be nice to see something by Sony Santa Monica, too.
@Schmove She has! I have instructions to phone her in twenty minutes.
Mark Rein takes his only shirt to California.
Expect to hear plenty more on Knack!
Hello! Ready for yet another press conference, having had an hour's sleep and too much caffeine. It's just like actually being there!
They're going to have to pull something pretty special out of the bag to top Just Dance 2014.
Not to mention that whale.
Conference is delayed slightly - will be another minute or two.
Everyone ready? Got your Kendal mint cake? Been to the toilet?
I bet Dean Hall likes Kendal Mint Cake. (He climbs mountains and stuff.)
Tense scenes backstage as Jack Tretton practices his lines. "ConnectIVity... ConnECTivity... Connectivitedness..."
Meanwhile, Kaz Hirai's personal ironer puts the final touches to his hair.
Another five minute delay.
You're all welcome re: pee reminder. Obviously, as a professional, I'm using a commode.
@Supaaafly Oh you know Sony, you've probably time to kill a pig before they've even gotten through the graphs.
Dammit though. As always, you're one step ahead. Wish I'd thought of adult nappies and rum.
Maybe they're still arguing over the script. "$599." "No, $549." "Call it $625 and throw in seventeen Move controllers, we've got to clear that warehouse anyway."
Calm down everyone. This is going to be terrible.
I think that was the original slogan for that World War 2 poster.
If they show Tokyo Jungle 2 I'm going to need another commode.
Wes just said, "Are they waiting for Ueda to finish The Last Guardian?"
This year's Sony conference is brought to you by Derek Jarman.
We're on: Jack Tretton had a slow puncture.
All fixed now.
Pretty sure they borrowed most of those graphics off of ITV2.
It's a montage montage!
Tretton was the original star of LA Noire, apparently.
Jack Tretton loves eating up news. Eating it all up. Umnumnumnumnum more please thank you.
If he drops that watch he might kill a child.
Looks like we're headed for PS3 and Vita first off.
Ah, PS Vita: the iPad for people who didn't realise they'd invented the iPad.
They've sold almost 650 of those babies.
Tretton's starting up slow - a stats burst on Vita that only smacks a little of desperation.
I sense we're on the cusp of a graph.
85 titles launching on Vita by the end of the year.
Destiny of Spirits, Doki Doki Universe, Counter Spy, Tearaway.
Yeah, I've only heard of half of those too.
Walking Dead 400 Days is coming to Vita this summer.
If you didn't go to the toilet before we began, there's still time.
And a new bundle will launch with the first episodes plus access to the new batch.
On to PS3 now. There's still GT6 and Beyond to come on that platform. Oh, and a certain Naughty Dog game that's out this Friday.
Ah, The Last of Us. Why not check out Oli's review on Eurogamer and mine on Gameological.com while you're waiting for Sony to say something about something new?
And Rain, I guess.
Clair de Lune! I want this played at my funeral. Just so you know in case I die of old age before this press conference is over.
Puppeteer and Rain are also inbound. If you were wondering what Studio Japan's been up to while The Last Guardian festers, well, this is it.
David Cage *may* have seen Silence of the Lambs.
For ages I thought Clair De Lune was a person. :(
That's my pretentious clown name of choice, Chris.
A new trailer for Gran Turismo 6. Well, I'm excited. The Deltawing's in it!
Mine is Monserrat Bigtrousers.
Do you think that really is a matching hankie poking out of Jack's jacket, or did he just cut a slit in the lining and pull a bit of his shirt through?
Dinner dinner dinner dinner.
He was in it.
"Holy downloadable content, Batman!" "It's only exclusive for launch window, Robin."
PS3 bundle for GTA 5 - it comes with a branded... headset?
$299 in the US. Which seems steep.
And we're on to PlayStation 4, at last.
Once, just once, I'd like one of them to say they're trying to make everything a bit less immersive.
Big fish little fish Andrew House!
Tiny, tiny hands.
Straight into the reveal of the unit itself.
It's... a black box!
It looks.... like the Xbox One!
"We were inspired by a very old, very knackered phone book."
World's first sandwich-inspired games console.
It's a shame that in that picture Andrew House looks like he's going "Sorry."
Check out our amazing new piece of technology! You will be able to use it to watch six year-old films!
Microsoft's decision to get the boring stuff out the way a few weeks back is starting to make a bit more sense.
Redtube instant's coming to PS4 exclusively.
Meanwhile, for our UK users, we've got Housesitter and Caddyshack 2.
Oh, sorry, Redbox.
That's that out the way. Now they're moving on to the games, with Shu Yoshida leading the way.
Shuei! Surely he's here to announce Tokyo Jungle 2. He wouldn't get out of bed for less.
Sony has 'the largest first party network in the world'.
30 PS4 titles in development at Worldwide Studios.
20 of them coming out in the first year of PS4's life. And 12 of them are new IPs.
A new game from Santa Monica Studios, delivered with Ready at Dawn - they that did the God of War PSP games.
A steampunk game, set in London.
This is what South East London was like before they extended the overground.
from hell, the game?
The demon rocket launcherer of Fleet Street.
They're named after Arthurian characters. And it's called The Order.
Guns: tick. Cars: tick. Wait what's this? Marc Ecko is BACK???
Seattle represents. Great Frasier cross-over potential.
Knack, Killzone and Driveclub are launch titles, Second Son coming early 2014.
If you say "emotion" three times at a press conference, you summon David Cage.
Here we go. Rubber ducks, Cage David style. "Quack quack boo hoo sob sob"
They've never really forgiven Phil Harrison for going over to the other side.
"This game was inspired by my trip to a Tolkien theme restaurant."
Jive talking trolls. We've hit a new low.
Ooh! Supergiant Games!
So this is what the battle for next-gen supremacy will come down to. Drivatars versus jive trolls.
Transistor will make its console debut on PS4 early next year.
Lovely argument against the need for photorealism there.
Blend in as an octopus! It's one of the classic game ideas.
Secret Ponchos is my absolute favourite new game name so far.
Lorne Lanning is the Errol Flynn of games - just not as evil.
Cripes - a new game from 17-Bit, too. The makers of Skulls of the Shogun. Now they've got a new side-scrolling space shooter that looks beautiful.
You can never have too many Journey-inspired shoulder braces.
@20GOTO10 Wouldn't you like to know?
"Yeah, just put our company logo right across his face while he's talking."
The second series of Broadchurch definitely appears to be going in a new direction.
Kingdom Hearts 3 is big news - shame there wasn't more of it to see, but it looked nice and pastelly.
Nice to be back on Melee Island (TM).
I wonder what the BBC will do now Ubisoft has poached the cast of The Archers.
"I'll let myself out." (Archers joke.)
Assassin's Creed V: Usha's Revenge
This may genuinely be a live demo for once.
Did anyone see Patrice just run off the stage?
Just a reminder that these freezes are pre-alpha and will be significantly upgraded to proper, console-breaking disc grinders when finished
Assassins Creed: Black Lag
Is there a pirate driving this car? I've lost track.
Did someone just mug Peter Molyneux?
I smashed your phone and ran away. Take THAT!
Boats are the new cars.
A special outfit? What, like a sexy one?
Sorry, drifted off for a minute there. Chicago! And PS4 owners get an exclusive hour, apparently.
Did I miss The Last Guardian?
Everyone misses The Last Guardian.
Do want a price, or do you want to hear about The Elder Scrolls again?
Next gen mushrooms.
Is that Gambon? Doesn't sound quite nose-blocked enough.
Maybe they paid him in Vicks.
This doesn't sound like The Last Guardian either...
Coming exclusively to PlayStation 4: The Last Gambon.
By heck, this must be the Avalanche game?
They're doing Babe next.
Like Aliens, another movie that's been thoroughly raided by games already.
Tretters! Fresh from a quick botox top-up.
No restrictions on used games.
Biggest cheer of the night.
Also, there's an EG user called Pynchon?
That was a good minute and a half.
What a nice next-gen feature: ownership.
Not since Martin Luther King addressed the Lincoln Memorial has a nation felt so moved.
No online authentication.
"PS4 games will not cost any money. In fact, Sony will pay you to play them."
"And it won't stop working if you haven't authenticated in 24 hours."
Bless Tretters. So pleased with himself. And his new role as the Santa Claus of gaming.
Sounds like online multiplayer is now PS+ exclusive.
"And to top it all off, PS4 will be available this holiday for just $19999999."
Bungie: King of the skybox.
Just enjoying the wikipedia entry for Lionel Richie hit My Destiny.
"In the music video, Lionel is singing in front of 4 dancing supermodels with his shirt unbuttoned (although the top button was buttoned in the first scene then in the second scene it's all unbuttoned)."
"My Destiny" (lite mix edit) – 3:50
"Do It to Me" (rhythm method single edit) – 4:35
Reached number 22 in the Austrian singles chart.
@Supaaafly Party, kalamu, fiesta, forever
Thunderlord is an excellent name for a gun.
Thunderlord - and another favourite baby name bites the dust.
I'll also take a lightningbaron and a rainduke, please.
I'm sure my mate's got a thunderlord in her bedside drawer.
This banter is a bit laggy.
The gaikai fan is at E3! Lucky him.
Come on Andrew. Show us the money.
"True consumer ownership". It's kind of sad that this is now something to get excited about. But still...
Well. Well well well.
Don't worry everyone, I have tweeted Shuhei to ask him where was that big game we've all been looking forward to for so long.
Goodnight everyone! Good luck with work tomorrow.
More news on Tokyo Jungle 2 as soon as it comes in.
Thanks for tuning in. Goodnight!
Just one more thing: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=kWSIFh8ICaA
