Highlights of Sony's E3 2013 press conference included the PS4 hardware reveal, the announcement of the console's launch price, and the gameplay premiere of Bungie's Destiny.

Sony's event will follow Microsoft, Electronic Arts and Ubisoft press conferences. Titled 'Game On', Microsoft's E3 2014 media briefing will begin on June 9 at 9:30am PT / 12:30am ET / 5:30pm BST.

EA's annual E3 showcase will kick off at 1pm PT (4pm ET / 9pm UK) on the same day, while Ubisoft's E3 conference will follow at 3pm PT (6pm ET / 11pm BST).

Nintendo will once again forgo a traditional E3 press conference, instead opting to conduct a digital event to showcase its new games and announcements. On Tuesday, June 10 the platform holder will hold a special Nintendo Direct to share "further detail on the gaming experiences on the way for Nintendo platforms in 2014 and beyond".

E3 2014 will take place from June 10-12 at the Los Angeles Convention Center. Event organiser the Entertainment Software Association said E3 2013 drew a record number of attendees.
