Sony E3 2013 Live Blog


By the time the Playstation conference begins it will be 2AM BST. It also will not finish until 4AM BST. Why am I saying this? I’ve been up since 8AM yesterday morning, with sporadic sleep inbetween, so if a) this live blog starts to make no sense it’s because I’m sleep deprived and b) if I stop updating, it’s likely because I’ve fallen asleep. Please don’t hate me for sleeping, I’m only human, not a live blogging machine.
