All eyes are on the Sony E3 2016 press conference this year.  As much as tech junkies are excited to know what the company has planned for its supporters, many are anticipating what noteworthy releases will be announced this year.

While Sony has kept mum on what they will be showing at the event, sources are claiming that the PlayStation VR will most likely take the spotlight as its release has been slated for later this year.  Sony’s press conference is scheduled on June 13, 2016, at 6 PM PT/9 PM ET (June 14, 2016, at 11 AM AST), right after Ubisoft’s showcase at 1 PM PT/3 PM ET (June 14, 2016, at 6 AM AST), Forbes noted

Since Sony has been very quiet about its E3 2016 participation, many are speculating that they could be on to something.  As fans remember, Sony announced “Shenmue 3,” a game no one knew was in development, at the E3 2015.

Since talks about a PS4 upgrade, the PS4.5 Neo, has surfaced online, many are expecting to get more details at the Sony E3 2016 press conference.  The rumoured upgrade boasts of noteworthy improvements that will heighten any gaming experience.

Eurogamer was one of the first ones to report on the alleged PS4 upgrade. The site also questioned Sony’s move on “calling time” on the PS4. However, it also shed light on the direction the tech company wanted to take in line with Microsoft’s move to continuously innovate.

“We see on other platforms whether it be mobile or PC that you get a continuous innovation that you rarely see on console,” Microsoft Xbox Division Head Phil Spencer said recently. “Consoles lock the hardware and the software platforms together at the beginning of the generation.”

Despite the PS4.5 Neo being an improved version of the well-received PS4, not everyone is excited about the upgrade. According to a report from Playstation Lifestyle, some game developers are wary of supporting the upgrade since it requires added work from their end.
