How To Watch The PlayStation ‘Neo’ Launch Event In Australia

It’s happening. Following Microsoft’s Xbox Scorpio announcement at E3, Sony is preparing to reveal its own super-charged console at its PlayStation Meeting event in New York City tomorrow. If you want to catch all the action live, here’s what you need to know.

Tomorrow’s PlayStation Meeting will take place at the PlayStation Theatre in New York City, which means an early start for Aussie gamers. In addition to the Neo, it’s also likely Sony will officially “announce” the PlayStation 4 Slim to compete directly with the Xbox One S. (The Slim has suffered one of the most spectacular leaks in recent memory, with photos, unboxing videos and even customer reviews appearing online before Sony has even acknowledged the product exists.)

We also wouldn’t be surprised if Sony made some additional announcements for its upcoming virtual reality headset, the PlayStation VR. Here are the PlayStation Meeting 2016 details:
