As E3 inches closer, Sony has revealed the date and time for its E3 press conference, which will take place on Monday June 12 at 6 p.m. PT / 9 p.m. ET.

This is the usual time slot for PlayStation's E3 briefing, happening ahead of the main conference. It will take place at the Shrine Auditorium and Expo Hall in Los Angeles, which is where it also took place last year.

In comparison, Microsoft has detailed that it is having its press conference on Sunday June 11, marking an earlier date than normal for the company.

Stay tuned for more details as we get closer to E3. The main event runs from June 13 to 15.
