If you weren’t able to make it to E3 last year, Sony and PlayStation did you a solid. The PlayStation Experience let fans see the Sony E3 press conference in glorious HD from the comfort of their local movie theaters. People took well to it, and Geoff Keighley has announced today on the PlayStation Blog that they’ll be doing it again this year:
“This year I’m happy to announce that the PlayStation E3 Experience will return on Monday, June 15. Due to the quick sell-outs in 2014, we will be staging it in significantly more theaters — and yes, it will still be free. Last year tickets in most markets sold out in 15 minutes or less, so for 2015 we are increasing the number of theaters by more than 150%, with at least one theater in every state across the US — including Hawaii and Alaska — plus 3 cities in Canada.”
For those who attend the PlayStation experience, you’ll receive special bonuses at your local theater. After the show, Keighley will have an exclusive 30 minute in-theater post show with extended footage, developer interviews, and digital codes for things “they can’t disclose yet”.
Uncharted 4 beta codes, maybe? Free tickets will be made available starting next Wednesday the 27th at 9 AM PT right here. Most of theater capacity will be for ticket holders, while the rest will be for the people on the wait list, which will be on a first come, first serve basis. So if you miss the chance to grab a ticket, hurry to the theater! Finally, the Blog discloses that the PlayStation LiveCast show will return! It’ll kick off with the PlayStation conference on June 15 at 5:45 PM Pacific time with game demos, new trailers, and developer interviews for the next three days. You’ll be able to watch them on your PS4 or PS3 via the Live Events viewer app.
