At Sony's E3 2017 keynote presentation, the tech giant revealed new gameplay footage of a variety of titles, starting off the show with a stream of reveals and in-game trailers.

It not only showed off some of the most anticipated PS4 game titles but one-upped Redmond by teasing game titles coming to the company's PlayStation VR platform.

The game "takes place some time after the events of Uncharted 4: A Thief's End", says Polygon, and there will be absolutely no sign of Drake at all.

What we saw of the sandbox game, which shifts direction and tone as players make choices, bodes well for its release next year.

It closed out its media event with a sneak peak of an upcoming Spider-Man game, set for release in 2018, from partner studio Insomniac Games. This fighting game is also scheduled to release in 2018, with no definite date in sight.

Earlier this week at E3, Microsoft made the big announcement that Minecraft will support cross-play with the Nintendo Switch version of the game. The gameplay of the upcoming Spiderman game by Insomniac games, Marvel, and Sony Interactive Entertainment has wonderful acrobatic abilities and web-slinging in the open world. Though the game was already given an HD re-release on the PlayStation 3, this appears to be a full-blown remake for the PlayStation 4.

Sony is also getting on the VR (Virtual Reality) bandwagon, showing plans for their brand new PSVR with an interesting Zelda style game called Moss, which is about the adventures of a mouse. The game is now slated to arrive on PlayStation 4 sometime in 2018. This section showed off the scale of the game and real Spider-Man moments that we have seen and loved from the comics and recent films.

It's somewhat inevitable. Over the last two years, these events have focused just a little too much on games too far off to justify the kind of excitement their reveals and trailers have been met with.
