Sony kicked off the Electronic Entertainment Expo, or E3, on Monday with a pre-event press conference at the Los Angeles Memorial Sports Arena.
The multimedia conglomerate began the show with a new “Destiny” trailer before announcing its plans to launch a white PlayStation 4 console. Destiny’s release in September will bring PlayStation TV to the U.S. and finally give players “Grand Theft Auto 5” on the PlayStation 4.
Sony also revealed the PlayStation TV mini console/streaming device will come to the U.S. sometime this year. Previously, it was only available in Japan, but buyers will have the ability to purchase the product for $99, or as part of a bundle for $139 with an HDMI cable, memory card, controller and a voucher for a “Lego” game. The mini console will play thousands of games.
The company confirmed action-adventure title “Grand Theft Auto 5” will come to the current-gen PlayStation 4.
Demand for the title on the Xbox One and PlayStation 4 has been high since the consoles’ launch late last year. Although rumors in the gaming realm have speculated Rockstar's latest "GTA" installment would one day launch on one of these platforms, the developer just confirmed the open-world title will be available on all three platforms in the future.
Sony announced that "Destiny," which will launch this September for the PS3, PS4, Xbox 360 and Xbox One, will be available in a bundle pack with a white PlayStation 4. The game's beta will open this July.
