Sony has confirmed it will host a Gamescom press conference on Tuesday, August 20 at 6pm BST, reports MCV.

The event will be held at the Saatenhaus am Rheinpark in Cologne and is expected to reveal further details on the PS4.

Microsoft is also expected to host a press conference, whilst EA's will kick off just three hours before Sony's begins.

Previous Sony conferences at Gamescom have announced the original slim PS3 and price cuts, but this year everyone will be hoping for news of the PS4's release date. There's also a chance we'll hear something positive about the PS Vita.
