Sony Interactive Entertainment are bringing the heat, PlayStation 4 for the players 

This year at E3 2018, Sony Interactive Entertainment wanted to do something different for their press conference, Shawn Layden and the other presenters and entertainers put on a show for all the global fans of the PlayStation brand to marvel at, in my opinion the showcase this year was great, they really honed in on their skills they did not waste time and show us too many video games we did not want to see, the good people at Sony Interactive Entertainment, we did see a lot of musical shows live on stream from flute players, rock bands and other shows which also enhanced the theme of this year’s E3 2018 press conference which was for some games an asian theme.
