Keep your eyes open this afternoon, PlayStation fans, as SCEE will hold its 2008 PlayStation Day press conference at 4pm: it’s gearing up to be a whopper.

In the absence of E3, companies are now trending towards showing their end-of-year line-ups to the trade in April and May at their own events, and from what we’ve been told in private you can expect today’s reveals to be significant.

Details:

  • 15.30 – Venue open
  • 16:00 – Press conference
  • 17:30 – Play time with games

We can’t tell you where it’s going to be held, but it’s a huge London venue and the guest list is described as “substantial”. We know a good portion of what’s going to be shown and all we can say is that it will be worth your while to keep watching for updates.

Kaz Hirai and European boss David Reeves will both be giving talks at the event, and there’s a heap of rumours circulating about what’s going to be shown. It doesn’t take a rocket scientist to work out that you’re about to hear pretty much everything about Sony’s 2008, so make sure you’re paying close attention at 4pm BST, when – God willing – we’ll be bringing you live updates from the venue.

It’ll probably just be Kaz talking about “brand equity”, a few PSPs and some warm beer, in reality. Don’t let us down, SCEE.

    Are you going to be ‘live blogging’ the news as it happens? I can’t be arsed hanging around until half five. :-D

    Assuming the magic happens, that’s the plan, yep. I won’t be blamed for it going horribly wrong.

    No doubt they’ll all be pretty smug about this kind of thing:

    Yeah, no doubt. I think they’re going to have an awful lot to talk about, tbh.

    What’s funny about Chips? I’ve never even heard of them. Unless we’re talking about the slightly gay biker cops.

    Blerk: I think that’s the point.
