Sony E3 press conference will be televised by G4

Posted by Mark Raby

Even though it seems Spike TV will not be airing Sony's E3 press conference next month, G4 will be.

It had been reported that Sony was closing off access to the live direct feed of its annual media event where it shows off all the things gamers need to be excited about for the rest of the year.

However, G4 has confirmed that it will be airing the press conference, live, in its entirety, on June 4.

What Sony will reveal during its presentation remains a huge mystery. Last year, everyone knew that the company was going to talk a lot about its new portable gaming system, as well as address the massive disruption that plagued the Playstation Network in the preceding months.

Because it needed as much good press as possible, Sony went all out last year, treating the media to enough free food and drinks to feed a small country and inviting nearly everyone to the event who asked for an invitation.

It seemed like all that glitz was in the hopes of quickly covering up the disaster that resulted from the PSN debacle, but Sony will be holding the same kind of shebang this year so hopefully it has something interesting enough to meet that level of excitement.

Microsoft, which kicks off the E3 press conferences, will be airing its event live on Spike and G4 as well as other streaming channels online. Nintendo has not announced one way or the other, which at this point means it is probably in the same boat as Microsoft.
