Did we get reveals from this event last year? Figure they'll save most stuff for the PS Experience.
In 2015 they announced Detroit, GT Sport, Robinson: The Journey, Until Dawn: Rush of Blood, Matterfall, Driveclub Bikes, first Uncharted 4 multplayer gameplay, first Dreams gameplay, and a few other things.

They didn't hold a press conference in 2016.

Interesting, I had a feeling they might have a European conference this year.

Obvious guesses to appear are Wild and Detroit. Maybe Dreams...

Too close to PSX don't you think?
With GT Sports out on the 17th, I'm really interested to see what will be the EU focus for this conference. Maybe Dreams and Wild? Hopefully they go all out with Detroit and announce a release date.

Of course it's going to be GOW since it's being made with special love for EU ;)

Here's Polygon's summary of 2015's announcements just so people don't start imagining BBII (which was definitely, definitely going to turn up at E3) is going to turn up here.
Already predictable:
-Detroit's Release Date
-New Wild Gameplay (Possible Release Date?)
-Shadow Drop MM's Dreams Beta (or at least a date)
-VR titles.
-Horizon DLC Trailer
-Third Party Stuff
-Maybe a reveal from Sony London to end the conference.

Why have this event when you had next to nothing to announce at E3. Save it for PSX.

Probably a focus on European devs and franchises that are big in Europe, so I expect something similar to 2015. Dream, Wild, Detroit, The Frozen Wilds, GT Sports, etc.

PSX will get The Last of Us 2, God of War and Death Stranding.

Why have this event when you had next to nothing to announce at E3. Save it for PSX.
Because there is lots of European stuff they haven't touched upon in a while. Wild, Dreams etc.

Snubbing Gamescom? Isn't Gamescom the much bigger and important event?
This is "business management from my ass" but it's possible Sony have moved to an event that's slightly later in the year as more AAA/Exclusive games launch in the Spring rather than the Fall. If you look at past announcements from PGS, they concern games that are releasing near enough immediately or in the Spring. Maybe having a conference in October time allows them to show more or different things that have been shown at E3?

Watching their last Paris show was a complete waste of time; with how close this is to PSX, I don't expect an improvement this year.

Truth be told, when gaming companies are hosting big press conference with a sizable amount of new announcements, it doesn't matter whether they do it next to any gaming event, or do it randomly any other day.

If there are big announcements there, it'll receive major coverage from press outlets/etc, regardless of whether or not it's a Gamescom, PSX, PGW... or say, a hypothetical PlayStation Direct.

So you wasted 0 second of your life watching Paris Game Show last year?



Anyway since this E3 was a news refreshment for last year where we got an update for Spider-Man, God of War and Days Gone, hopefully this time we will dive into new games.
Just how us what Sucker Punch is working on already.

Jim Ryan will walk on stage with both middle fingers up in the air.

Other than that, not sure what Sony's going to show or announce.

Conference might not good but stay for the Jim Ryan PR and interviews afterward, the meat of the show.

All them stars would really tie a new COLONY WARS announcement together. Just saying...
but I've been wrong before ;)
