So, at the very least, we expect Sony will finally take the wraps off the PS4 at E3 and we can finally see what the gadget looks like. You can expect more details on the console and an early line-up of games, too.

The PS4 will, of course, go toe to toe with Microsoft's Xbox One which has been announced already. Price is important but with the PS4 not due to arrive until the Christmas period we would be surprised if a price was announced but you never know.
