PlayStation’s E3 press conference is once again coming to theaters this year, live from all 50 states, five in Canada, and some theaters in Latin America.
The PlayStation E3 Experience is on Monday, June 13th, and will show in more than 85 theatres free of charge, as opposed to the 75 last year. Any person who is in attendance will get a Coca-Cola E3 Experience cup, a PlayStation collectible card, and some digital goodies that are sure to be revealed before E3 Experience concludes.
Tickets are free and available starting tomorrow at 10 AM Pacific at Playstation.com/e3experience. When tickets run out, you’ll be placed on a waitlist, which does not confirm a seating arrangement.
If you don’t feel like going or just don’t have the time, you can pop on over to your PS3 or PS4 and hop into Live Events Viewer to watch the press conference from the comfort of your couch.
My Take: Having gone to the inaugural PlayStation E3 Experience in 2014, I’d highly recommend seeing Sony’s E3 press conference in a theater. During my time at that E3 Experience, I got to see trailers for games before the press conference even started, talk to fans about their hopes for the conference, scream at the top of my lungs without fear of judgment, and got free stuff, like a poster, lanyard, a beta for Battlefield Hardline, the Destiny Alpha, $5 for PSN, and a 30-day trial of Music Unlimited.
Unfortunately, I couldn’t stay for the 30 minute post-show with Geoff Keighley, but from what I read of the post-show, I won’t miss it again.
Alternatively, I’d like to see Microsoft do the same. Take Xbox FanFest to Microsoft Stores, nationwide, rent out movie theaters, whatever the Xbox version of this is, do it. Everyone that’s gone to the PlayStation E3 Experience that I’ve talked to, at least, seemed ecstatic that PlayStation was thinking about their consumers. I’ve even heard of people coming back to PlayStation E3 Experience, that’s how good it is.
So, I’ll be at PlayStation E3 Experience 2016, now will you? Ultimately, that decision’s yours, but I wouldn’t miss it for the world.
Pro tip: You’ll probably want to bookmark that ticket page, and arrive there 10 minutes early, and hit refresh constantly. Just a tip.
