Live Coverage: Our liveblog of Sony's big E3 presser.

--> Sony's big E3 2009 Press Conference is scheduled for Tuesday at 2:00 PM (Eastern Time) and will take place on the first day of the E3 expo.

The conference will be starting shortly, so be sure to keep this page open as Gaming Target editor Matt Swider twitters live from the show and John Scalzo follows along at home.

What will Sony have on hand to show us this year? The smart money is on the PSP Go!, Metal Gear Solid: Rising, the latest Team Ico game, Heavy Rain and maybe a little on Gran Turismo 5.

Ready? Here... we... go...
