If you're looking to upgrade your PlayStation 4 or PlayStation 3, then you can use those consoles to see what Sony has in store.

There's a chance that Sony will bring out an app for watching the livestream on the PS4 (as it has done in the past), and if so all you'll need to do is open it up on the day to watch.
