E3 o’clock is almost upon us, and to mark the occasion editor Ben Wilson and the team make their predictions for the big show in this month’s Official PlayStation Magazine podcast. No, Kane & Lynch 3 does not make the shortlist.

Thrilling stuff. We’ve also got verdicts on Crysis 3, God Of War: Ascension, and Tomb Raider. Plus, Meiks laughs a lot at the word “pawn”, because he’s an immature child. Enjoy!
