E3 2011: Sony will run the Longest Press Conference in E3 History

Posted May 25, 2011 by Jay Wheeler in PS3, PSN, PSP

It is fair to say that 2011 has not exactly been Sony’s year of triumph up to now; the lawsuit controversy with Geohot, the online attack from infamous hacker group Anonymous, and not to mention the month long outage of the PlayStation Network due to an illegal intrusion made by hackers, who have to this day kept their identity hidden. However, things can only look up for Sony and their fans for the forthcoming future, as it seems that E3 2011 is the start of that.

E3 is like Christmas for gamers, and it looks as though Sony is really going to deliver the goods this year, after it is confirmed that their press conference will last for a record breaking five hours. This is due to the brilliant array of games that are sure to be covered by Sony officials and third-party developers, as well as a major focus on the PSP’s successor, the NGP (Next-Generation-Portable). Sony’s E3 website also hints at games that are yet to be announced.

Many other predictions have been swirling around on the web in regards to what the press conference will mention, including;

– Information on another God of War title
– The release of a Metal Gear Solid Collection bundle, as well as a PS3 port of MGS: Peace Walker
– The PS3 system and the PlayStation Move both seeing a price drop
– Development of a partnership between Sony and Google

We can speculate all we want, but at least we don’t have to wait long now for what is arguably the biggest gaming event of the year.

It is also being noted that Sony has a “special event” to reveal as part of the conference. What exactly this is referring to is yet to be made certain.

The Sony E3 2011 press conference will commence from 5:00pm until 10:00pm at the Memorial Sports Arena in Los Angeles on June 6th. For us in the UK, thats 1:00am until 6:00am on June 7th, so get your cans of Red Bull ready.

Push-Start will keep you updated as the news arrives.
