It’s 2 am in the morning here in the UK and we are sitting, perched and shaking with anticipation, or that could just be the numerous double espresso’s we have consumed to keep us awake!
The time has come for Sony PlayStation to deliver their press briefing for E3 2018 and all eyes are on the big 4 titles already announced for the showcase: The Last of Us 2, Death Stranding, Ghost of Tsushima and of course, everyone’s favourite webslinger, Spider-Man.
