It’s been a rough couple of months for Sony – and the company is no doubt looking to turn the tide with their 2011 E3 Press Conference. Sony has confirmed that the keynote will prominently feature the PSP-successor, NGP – as well as plenty of first party PS3 titles including Uncharted 3: Drake’s Deception, Twisted Metal, and Resistance 3 – but what surprises lie in wait? Could Sony surprise fans with a new God of War title or mention of the next generation console, PS4?

2011 was supposed to be “the year of the PlayStation3.” Let’s hope Sony pulls out all the stops – because they still have an enormous PR nightmare on their hands. Join the Game Rant crew live from the L.A.
