Sony live at Gamescom Noon EST with PS4 launch plans
Sony's Gamescom press conference from Cologne, Germany, begins at noon EST (9AM PT, 6PM CEST). We're expecting another rockin' roller-coaster of announcements from the PlayStation 4 manufacturer. We'll share our analyses and hopes from the front row in a liveblog, right here, right when it starts. At least we hope it's the front row, with Ritter Sport chocolates placed delicately on the cushions. We dream big.

Sony will share its "release plans" for the PS4 during the conference, and the presentation will touch on news for the PS3 and Vita, the PlayStation Europe Blog reported last week.

The Sony E3 press conference was one to remember – your move, Germany.
