With each successive year, Sony Computer Entertainment America's E3 web site has grown in terms of content and presentation. Last year's site offered shots of the show floor throughout the massive games convention's three days, as well as a few choice details on upcoming games. Those with keen enough eyes were able to spot a mention of SOCOM: US Navy SEALs, a game that hadn't even been mentioned until it appeared on the site in a list of games as if it had been batted around as a title for months.

This year, Sony is rumored to have more games unveiled during the show than ever before, something that should appease PS2 gamers complaining that there just aren't that many high-profile titles due out for the system this year, especally when compared to last year's hype-chocked E3 performance. Indeed, this year will have a great deal to live up to. Games like Maximo, Jak & Daxter and Splashdown were pleasant and unexpected surprises, and with AAA releases like Grand Theft Auto 3, Gran Turismo 3 and Metal Gear Solid 2 already released, there's a noticable lack of high-quality games on the horizon compared to last year.

For the time being, however, we'll just have to speculate on big titles. The short teaser that plays on the site right now doesn't offer any teases, flashing known and already released games like Hot Shots Golf 3, PaRappa 2, Twisted Metal: Black, GT3, Drakan, Frequency and Jak & Daxter. Rest assured, though, when the full site does open, we'll be scouring it for clues as for what to expect come May 22.
