With Microsoft and Nintendo pitching up at this year's E3 on a mission to sell the appeal of new - and newish - hardware, Sony just had to keep the games coming. Though there were no huge new announcements for the platform, games such as the horror title The Inpatient were certainly interesting and offered hope that the PS VR won't be resigned to a similar fate to the Vita, as had previously been suggested.

Earlier this year at the annual DICE Summit, Marvel Games Creative Director, Bill Rosemann, revealed that the teams at Insomniac, Sony, and Marvel were driven to show players why this character is so compelling and awesome. Numerous action sequences were scripted events, but the gameplay itself looked smooth and precise.

Sony's PlayStation E3 2017 Press Conference live stream starts Monday, June 12, 6pm PDT, 9pm EST, which is actually 2am Tuesday BST for anyone in the UK.

What should we expect to see from Sony at E3? After witnessing some signature Peter Parker quips, we immediately get a look at some neat stealth gameplay - Spidey can sneak up on enemies from behind, web them to high-up poles, and set explosive web traps in case he gets spotted and needs to run away.

Unlike many previous Marvel games, this title appeared to be based on the Spider-Man comics of the last ten years. The most recent game Spider-Man starred in before Spider-Man PS4 was the mobile game Spider-Man: Unlimited with the lead role voiced by Yuri Lowenthal.

Rust made it 2-0 just 6:43 into the game with a nasty backhand flip over Rinne's glove. "It's about going back and forth". Yet there's been no question that Rinne, who has never won a start in Pittsburgh, will be in net Sunday night.

The Lost Legacy is the first Uncharted game to not star Nathan Drake, but our new heroes - Uncharted 2 treasure hunter Chloe Frazer and Uncharted 4: A Thief's End mercenary Nadine Ross - don't seem to be straying too far from the series' roots.

Before the press conference, the publisher will have a pre-show at 5pm PT.

Appearances from Square Enix's Kingdom Hearts III and a Final Fantasy VII remake could provide the nostalgia hit required to fill the void left by an absent Shenmue III.

At E3 2017, Sony again took to the stage for some more detailed arachnology with a length look at gameplay. Unfortunately, this doesn't exactly make for a particularly compelling show.
