Insomniac Games' Spider-Man is swinging its way to PS4 sometime next year. Basically, this was a keynote regarding the software line-up of the company.

Let's see what Sony did at E3 this year, shall we? It is the first Uncharted game to not feature Nathan Drake as the headliner. This time it seems that they are behind an ancient treasure in India, probably the Ganesha's tusk. The Japanese technology company said on Tuesday that it has sold 60.4 million PlayStation 4 game consoles, maintaining a steady pace since it launched in November 2013.

The event also unveiled a version of the hit fantasy role-playing game "Skyrim" tailored for play on PlayStation virtual reality gear. While the VR market is still embryonic, Sony's VR strategy offers it a key differentiator beyond the multi-platform timed exclusive games which represent the traditional battleground between Microsoft and Sony. While you wait for Spider-man to release, at least we have Spider-man: Homecoming to look forward to in the meantime. The new God of War is slated for an early 2018 release.

Bear in mind that not everything in the game is based on combat and also lets us see how we will take advantage of the abilities of Spidey to explore the city and escape a catastrophic accident involving a devastating ball. It is set in the high desert of Pacific Northwest. Not just this, it will be coming to PCs also, but later.

Not only does it look like the leaked roster for Marvel vs Capcom Infinite was correct, we also got a look at the story mode.

Days Gone is Sony's upcoming open-world zombie survival game. This game is set for release in 2018 and for now, it's a Playstation 4 exclusive.

The 2015 and 2016 shows in particular were fantastic, creating enormous momentum for PS4 - sales of which have topped 60 million - and PlayStation VR - which recently passed the one million mark and has exceeded expectations.

On the software front, PS4's portfolio will continue to expand this year with highly anticipated games including Destiny 2 (Activision Publishing, Inc.), Star Wars Battlefront II (EA), Gran Turismo Sport, and Uncharted: The Lost Legacy (SIE WWS).
