Watch Sony's PlayStation E3 2017 press conference live here

Every summer, the biggest video game developers, publishers, and console manufacturers converge on Los Angeles for the Electronic Entertainment Expo. It's the best place to get a handle on where games are going and the state of play.

June is Christmas for gamers.

We're expecting much of Microsoft's focus this year to be on their new Project Scorpio console, which should be fully unveiled for the first time.

Another definite is PS4-exclusive Spider-Man, which will also double as a promo for the new Marvel movie coming from Sony Pictures next month. That console will come out later this year and we should learn a lot more about the launch details and games for that console at E3 early next week.

Many are expecting to see on stage some anticipated titles such as the virtual reality version of "Fallout", a sneak peek of "The Elder Scrolls Online", an expansion of the "Dishonored 2", more preview of the "Quake Champions" and more. This confirmed news can be noticed on the pre-order page of the official webpage of Federation Internationale de Football Association 18, players purchasing the "Icon Edition" will receive $155 worth of Jumbo Premium Gold Packs, also Cristiano Ronaldo and Brazilian striker, Ronaldo will be playable as loan for five games. Also the new FIFA 18 have upgraded their graphics range which will let fans play on even more smoother grounds and experience a real state of football gaming. Super Mario Odyssey will be shown off at E3, but just as many eyes will be on non-Nintendo names and their Switch games. E3 may be best known for massive product unveilings - including both hardware and new games in blockbuster franchises - but it's also where the companies behind these products make deals, taking the opportunity to network with associates from other parts of the globe while striking software publishing and licensing agreements behind closed doors. And there are a lot of fun rumors flying around. Product delays often occur in the tech industry, so it's impressive that Microsoft will be able to live up to its originally promised release window. In this reading, "DirectReality" would mean that a game offers certain gameplay options, rather than being an API for developers to use to improve their games.

Checking in with VR: The industry group that runs the show said there will be 128 exhibitors showing off their VR work at the show.

EA are hosting the first conference of the show this year. Nielsen recently reported that awareness of VR devices has gone from 28 percent in 2016 to 51 percent this year, but that adoption hasn't followed.

Microsoft is one of the custodians of gaming, as one of the three major console manufacturers- so it has an added responsibility to not disappoint its fans, many of whom have extra expectations from it this year, after Microsoft has clearly been building up to it, and the reveal of its upcoming Xbox Scorpio.

Bethesda is expected to live stream their press conference on Twitch and YouTube.
