E3 2016 is just around the corner, with the main show starting on Tuesday 14 June.

However, the press conferences run over the couple of days beforehand and many eyes on what the big two, Sony and Microsoft, have to say before the conference starts proper.

That's why you should make sure the Sony PlayStation E3 press event is in your calendar. If you're up and about, you might even want to catch a livestream.

We've received an official invite, so will report from the briefing, so here's what we'll be looking out for and some of things to expect.

SonyE3 press conference

Sony will host its annual E3 press conference on Monday 13 June in a new location to usual, the Shrine Auditorium & Expo Hall that was used by Electronic Arts in former years.

Registration for the event starts at 4.30pm, but the press conference itself doesn't start until 6pm (PT). That's 2am in the UK, sorry.

It traditionally runs for two hours.

There will be several places where you will be able to watch the PlayStation E3 conference live. And the good news is that we're hosting it here on Pocket-lint. The video directly below will be live when the event starts.

It will also be streamed on live.playstation.com.

For the first time, Sony will also be screening the event live in over 80 movie theatres in the US and Canada. You can get your tickets from playstation.com/e3experience, but we're not sure how many will still be available in your area.

This is the biggy everyone was expecting, but Sony's own president has said that it definitely will not be making an appearance at the show.

In an interview with the Financial Times, Andrew House confirmed that an upgraded PS4, with 4K Ultra HD support and greater graphics capabilities is indeed in its short terms plans, but it will not be unveiled at E3.

According to rumours, it will also have more RAM on-board and an octa-core CPU. House himself even suggested that games released for both it and the standard PS4 will offer more when run on the Neo - most likely in a graphical sense.

That'll definitely be of interest to gamers who are willing to pay for a better experience, but surely alienates the 40 million plus owners of existing PS4s? However, we'll have to wait a bit longer to find out for sure.

Considering it's coming out in October, there will no doubt be a big focus on PS VR this year too - at the event and on the E3 show floor.

The hardware is already established so there might be more news on alternative controllers or the like.

Like the Xbox Media Briefing earlier in the day, the Sony conference will have plenty of third-party publishers showing their games on stage exclusively.

There will also be a number of key PS4 exclusives and first-party titles.
