The wait is over folks. Sony is set to thrill or horribly disappoint all of us. This is the event where we’re expecting to see the PlayStation 4, cloud gaming and maybe even a Vita price drop. Follow along with us in our live blog for all the information the moment it happens. Also, pop open another tab and check out our PlayStation event Bingo card and see just how accurate the rumors are. Alright then, let’s get this thing started!

Maybe this is why Sony sent some PSN users $10 earlier today. Here's $10 - don't ask when the PS4 will be out, how much it will cost or what it will look like.
This makes no sense. Ok. Fine. Don't announce a price. Don't announce a release window. But at the very least, SHOW us the SYSTEM.
Thanks for tuning in everyone. We'll see you at Sony's funeral very soon after the public murders them.
Oh. It's Activision. So I guess this means we'll either hear about a Call of Duty game or Skylanders SWAP Force?
So exclusives so far: The Witness, Killzone Shadow Fall and something with PlayStation Move that involves sculpting.
They're running through an alley like in Sleeping Dogs. The suspect is tackled while the main character makes a run from the cops.
He now draws a weapon and is watching an argument between a man and a woman. He intervenes and is chasing the man.
The lead character is walking down a street in Chicago very casually. This is actual gameplay footage.
Well. That was anticlimactic. He just came on stage to say they're working on a new Final Fantasy title.
Come on Square Enix! Our memories aren't THAT short! I saw this exact same demo/preview run three times while I was waiting for the E3 2012 Tomb Raider meeting that fell through because too many people wanted to see it. Shenanigans!
Aw. We're seeing a real-time, cinematic demo using Luminous Studio. Perhaps they were afraid of the riot that would stem from a PS4 Final Fantasy Versus XIII announcement?
Deep Down is the new game. There was a message from Blanka at the end of the trailer, which is kinda weird.
A new IP will use this engine. It looks like a medieval fantasy game. I say it looks similar to Dragon's Dogma. The trailer is running now.
Virtually every major 3rd party partner will support the PS4. Yoshinori Ono from Capcom is on stage now.
From Sony's Twitter feed, they are aware some people are having problems with the stream. You'll be able to watch the whole thing after the event's conclusion.
So, Media Molecule is gonna work with the Move to make the Move 2.0? I don't know if even Media Molecule can make me love it...
Media Molecule wants to help us record our dreams? I don't know if this is a good idea. Last dream I had, I was facing alien, human-sized poodles and helping them adapt to life on Earth.
You know, no disrespect to Mr. Cage, but I'd really rather see more actual games or get a launch date/price. Thanks!
Self-publishing will continue for indie devs! Braid creator Jonathan Blow and his team are making a PS4 exclusive called The Witness.
You know, I bet this trailer right here would look really awesome if the video feed wasn't so choppy on my end.
4.2 million security cameras are around Great Britain. 1.3 million cell phone records seized in North America. - I guess this is going to be a conspiracy game next.
.... This is all well and good, but I'm gonna be upset if I don't get a RPG announcement. I want a RPG for my PS4.
Touting the social features of racing title Driveclub. They really want me to interact with other people this console generation.
Evolution Studios is making Drive Club - a team based racing game. They always wanted to make this game and trademarked the name 9 years ago.
Please tell me the share button does something other than just "share." I don't want to be social all the time.
I'm counting "remote play" for Vita for the "Vita can be used as a PS4 controller" spot on our bingo card. Same difference!
My friends would still wanna just come over and play instead. It's so much more satisfying to steal someone's controller away in person
So I guess this is how demos will work on the PS4. Gaikai network will let you actually let you sample it. And share it with Facebook and uStream
It's going to download a game and then suggest I buy it? PlayStation 4, like an electronic crack dealer..
Vita and tablet apps will let you connect with people over the PlayStation Network away from the PS4.
Friends lists will allow people to have profiles, pictures of themselves and their real names in games with friends.
Cerny thinks loading will be a thing of the past, and people will be able to load one game while playing others. Downloadable games are playable immediately once you purchase. They'll download as you play.
Knack looks interesting. His ability to grow and shrink could lend to excellent puzzling/platforming.
He's going through live demos showing how pretty the PS4 looks and how powerful it is atm. Which is nice and all, but show us REAL games please?
X86 CPU. PC-GPU graphics processor. 8GB of high speed, unified memory. ... Ok. Yadda yadda yadda. Tell us launch date/price/hard drive size/launch games!
Goal 3: Wanted to hear from developers, know what was important to them and make them happy.Goal 3: Wanted to hear from developers, know what was important to them and make them happy.
They want to expand it and make it useful in the livingroom ...but won't talk about it until later this year.
We're seeing a video of people playing PS games and a montage of Sony gaming goodness from over the years.
We're seeing some soundless visualizations on the official PlayStation Meeting broadcast page. If you're not there, you can see it here
We're 10 minutes away from the PlayStation Meeting's beginning. That is, if it starts on time at 5pm CST, 6pm PST, 3pm EST
I think we'd have to see a picture of Trico being locked in a cage and shipped to Hades with Kratos as his escort before we'd really believe The Last Guardian is gone.
Yeah that's one game we're all expecting. I wonder how long it'll take for people to stop caring about it?
While we wait, you should check your PSN messages because Sony has been giving away $10 vouchers. It's not a scam!
If the PS4 is revealed, we're hoping Sony keeps the price to under $400. I think even $450 would be pushing it.
