With a mere two weeks to go until E3, Sony has announced on the PlayStation Blog (via. NeoGAF) that the PlayStation E3 Experience will return, taking place on Monday June 13 in a selection of theaters across the US, Canada and Latin America.
PlayStation Experience was first introduced back in 2014, in which Sony broadcast their E3 Press Conference Live to select theaters across North America, in partnership with Fathom Events. According to the blog post, Sony has since “doubled our seating capacity” to accommodate a wider audience than ever before.
There’s just something special about watching the news and excitement of E3 together with fellow PlayStation fans that makes this an event I look forward to every year.” said Sony Brand Manager Michael Steranka,“Between the loud cheers that, honestly, probably ruin movies for people in adjacent theaters (sorry not sorry), and the camaraderie felt in the air from being surrounded by the PlayStation Nation, there’s no better way to experience E3.”
Attendees of PlayStation Experience will be able to watch an “HD simulcast” of Sony’s E3 Press Conference, and receive a selection of PlayStation goodies to commemorate the event. Trinkets include a Coca-Cola E3 cup and a card from the PlayStation Collectible Card series announced by Sony at last year’s Experience Event. According to the post, fans will also receive a “digital gift basket”, although its contents for this year remains currently unknown.
As usual, tickets are free and will become available to book on the official Experience website at 10am PT today, Monday 31 May 2016. Once tickets run out, Sony will add names to a waiting list, for whom the company have a limited number of seats reserved. Sony reminds however that these seats will be available on a “first-come, first -serve basis”.
A list of theaters participating in Sony’s E3 Experience can be found on the PlayStation Blog. Fans based in Latin America, according to the blog post, can find ticket and theater information “soon” via the PlayStation Blog Latin America.
