Sony, similar to other big names in the market such as Microsoft and Ninetendo, has been gaining a lot of traction much before the start of the E3 event for the current year. The company was already in the news for its new PlayStation 4 console that goes head to head primarily with Microsoft's Xbox One console.
Sony took the stage at this year's E3 event with a number of things waiting to unfold. Sony's PS4 press conference also came as an opportunity for the company to show its mettle among all other names also present at the event.
"To ensure that PlayStation is above all else the best place to play," explained Andrew House, Sony Computer Entertainment president and CEO, of the PlayStation strategy since last year's E3.
"We know what best means: It means the best visual quality, it means choice, it means not being a lone gamer but part of a extensive community of rivals and friends."
However, apart from a host of game trailers, confirming release dates, and showing off of a number of previously unannounced titles, Sony also managed to present its first refreshed PS4 hardware.
Apparently, the first white version of the console will be bundled with Destiny and will hit store shelves with the sci-fi space shooter on September 9.
So what exactly happened at Sony's E3 presentation? What were high points of it, and what did we learn? Let's take a closer look.
