the 5 Things To Expect From Sony At E3 2014
 
 

E3 is almost upon us! For Sony and its ascendant PS4, it’s going to be hard to top last year’s show stopping performance, where both a $100 price difference and a total lack of controversial DRM policies delivered a knockout punch to Microsoft and the Xbox One that it’s still reeling from. That doesn’t mean the company can rest on its laurels, though: Microsoft will be coming out swinging, and Sony still has to put on an exciting show to stay on top. Here are a few things we can expect they’ll be bringing to the table on Monday:

Uncharted 4: The unflappable Nathan Drake was the standard bearer for the Playstation 3, and we can expect him to get a fresh PS4 makeover on Monday. Like Halo 5, this game won’t be out until 2015, but we’ve already heard a lot of chatter that the graphics are going to blow our minds, and this is Sony’s chance to do just that. Expect a cinematic preview with a bit of gameplay to follow, maybe even a live demo. Even if the game isn’t far enough along for that, Sony and Naughty Dog want to remind us all that it’s coming.

Morpheus: Virtual Reality is that great swirling strangeness on the edge of the videogames horizon, tantalizing us all with vague promises of an entirely new world of play. We first saw Morpheus at GDC, but we don’t know much about it aside from the fact that it exists, and it works about as well as the Oculus Rift. We’re a ways off from a commercial product, but it behooves Sony to keep this fresh in our consciousness. Expect Shuhei Yoshida to look absolutely charming as we watch him wave his way through an unannounced Morpheus title.

Some Vita, Not Much: Sony makes a handheld! It’s called the Vita. It’s actually quite nice! Though strange. The Vita isn’t exactly Sony’s proudest product right now, but it can’t ignore the fact that it exists. I’d expect the company to play it up as a PS4 peripheral through remote play, probably by announcing a new Vita/PS4 bundle with a few cross-play games thrown in. The Vita also gets some attention in our next bullet point, which is…

Playstation Now: I’m torn on what we’ll see about Playstation Now: I assume we’ll get an update on how the beta is going and what magic we can expect from the program in the future, but aside from that it’s hard to say. I doubt we’ll get an actual launch date or prices, but I wouldn’t be surprised if we get a small list of confirmed games (even ones that don’t start with Uncharted) and a relative timeline. Either way, this feature is going to be very important to the Playstation ecosystem going forward, and Sony will need to spend some time on it.

More Games: The Order: 1886 got delayed, but it’s still probably the farthest along in Sony’s first party stable, so I’ll bet my hat (a tasteful dark straw panama) that we’ll be seeing more of that. Assassin’s Creed is a Sony stand-by, so expect to see something from Unity. Aside from that, Driveclub will definitely make an appearance, as will a smattering of Indies. Other than that? There’s always room for surprises.
