Sony had a lot to show off in its almost two hour presentation. As with the Microsoft conference, this roundup is not an exhaustive look at the conference, but a report on some of the highlights. Visit the E3 2014 thread for more E3 talk.

Like the Microsoft conference, Sony had its own exclusives and "first available on" titles. Destiny will be coming first to PlayStation 4 (PS4) with an alpha look this coming weekend and a beta look on July 17. Sony will be releasing a White PS4 Destiny bundle on September 9. An undersea game called Abzu will make its debut on PlayStation 4 first, as well as E3 2013's darling No Man's Sky. Disney Infinity will be giving the Hulk and four other unrevealted characters (!) PlayStation exclusivity.

Grim Fandango is making a return to consoles, on PS4 and Vita. Rachet and Clank, The Last Of Us Remastered, and Grand Theft Auto V are also making the trip to PS4.

PlayStation Network (PSN) will be getting new content such a playroom and many free to play games. Sony also brought out Brian Michael Bendis to promote the Powers TV show which will be exclusive to PSN.

PlayStation Now will be coming to Sony TVs; you won't need to have a Sony console to play many PlayStation games. PlayStation TV (in Japan Vita TV) hardware will be headed West as well. Project Morpheus was shown off again along with two new previews: Jurassic Encounter and Street Luge.

Only on PlayStation will be The Order: 1886, Little Big Planet 3 (with new characters), Bloodborne, Magicka, The Talos Principle, and Uncharted 4: A Thief's End.
