Experience E3 LIVE From Your PS3 With Streaming Keynote, Virtual PlayStation Booth


Locust_Star's Avatar Posted by on May 31, 2011 // PlayStation Home Community Manager

With the E3 Expo just around the corner, the PlayStation Home team is happy to announce that you’ll be able to be part of the convention excitement — right from your PS3!

For the first time ever, PlayStation Home will host a live public video stream of the Sony E3 press conference on Monday, June 6 at 5pm Pacific Time in a special screening room. You can watch SCEA President and CEO Jack Tretton reveal all of the big E3 announcements and watch never-before-seen footage of tons of upcoming PS3 and NGP titles.

We’re also happy to confirm that the PlayStation Home E3 Virtual Booth is making a triumphant return! The virtual booth was visited by a lot of people last year (five times more people than physically attended E3 2010!), making it huge success for us and hopefully for you as well. If you visited the booth last year, you’ll remember that we enabled you to explore a virtual recreation of PlayStation’s E3 booth. Expect the same this year, with a few new surprises — including a 3D-rendered NGP to inspect from every angle.

PlayStation Home: E3 2010 virtual booth

Images taken from the E3 2010 virtual PlayStation booth; check back next Tuesday to see what’s awaiting you for 2011!

Be sure to visit the E3 Booth in Home at the start of the show on Tuesday, June 7 at 12pm Pacific Time and earn exclusive virtual items as you visit the different areas in the virtual E3 booth. Once you unlock all the virtual items, you’ll be able to check out Home content in the VIP area and play the first level of Scribble Shooter – an upcoming top-down, shoot-em up game featuring hand-drawn enemies that is being designed to look as if you’re playing on a notepad — as well as a Heavy Water package with active virtual items. Why spend money on a plane ticket to LA when you can attend E3 right from your PS3?

Additionally, the PlayStation.Blog team will be streaming live game demonstrations straight from the show floor into PlayStation Home, so you won’t miss a single beat of all the excitement of E3. They’ll be scouring the show for any exciting new titles to show off, and you can watch it all within PlayStation Home. LIVE!

We hope you come visit. See you, virtually, at E3!

This has been the worst month and a half in gaming ever.. hopefully E3 can make up for all that and give gamers something to look forward to,.. it would be nice to see something new and not just a bunch of hype for sequels and triologys of games


+ zabelzerolp on May 31st, 2011 at 5:37 pm said:

Thanks for the extra effort. :)


+ ARC_Stig on May 31st, 2011 at 5:43 pm said:

This will be the first time that I use Home since the Killzone 3 thing. :) WOO! :)


+ Dariusness on May 31st, 2011 at 5:51 pm said:

um so what happen to the psn blog will not be updated until the psn store is back up and working for business

psn you are about to lose another customer like seriously this is aggravating


+ liquidypoo on May 31st, 2011 at 5:51 pm said:

Can we have a stream that doesn’t force us to use Home or the horrible internet browser? Home is an absolute waste of space, and we all know the internet browser is completely worthless, so what’s the alternative for those of us who’d like to watch E3 on our PS3s?


+ BLAZ3DAFUNK on May 31st, 2011 at 5:54 pm said:


You can download it too,usually… but that isnt live.


+ MonkeyGibber on May 31st, 2011 at 5:59 pm said:

@81 I have no problems using the browser on most sites, it’s leaps and bounds better than the browser on the crapbox (oh wait that’s right there isn’t one on the crapbox).

Also, Home has plenty of value that’s why the crapbox is trying to create their own “arcade space” for their xbox-mii’s to roam around in.

Anyway, I’ll be there watching the feed.

Hey a bit off topic but sombody needs to get terraria ported over to ps3 and psp its sweet but computer controls arent the best for it plus id love to play it on my psp


+ Link01 on May 31st, 2011 at 6:04 pm said:

Are you guys streaming live as in like GameSpot coverage live, as in as it happens you see it live? If so, THANK YOU.


+ wizardpsx on May 31st, 2011 at 6:11 pm said:

Hooo Wooo Thanks!! To give Us Direct Info. Ps Fans Will Love It!!! Keep it COming Sony!!!

+ LightningZombie on May 31st, 2011 at 6:14 pm said:

Funny how they respond to these questions but not the questions about the security package or the store


+ mitch099 on May 31st, 2011 at 6:23 pm said:

Well at least we know for sure that it will be back up before Monday.

Sadface :(… i move to texas that day will be in the rode so wont be able to watch…


+ Train1999 on May 31st, 2011 at 6:35 pm said:

I’m looking forward to 2011’s E3 event. I would love to see what Sony has in store for us gamers out here. I’ll be staying tuned. I wonder if the NGP will change its name to something else or will that be the name. That’s my only question to this point. I hope Playstation’s Home E3 Booth will be interesting.


+ Jarel88 on May 31st, 2011 at 6:41 pm said:

To Reiterate @#5 + nin513 “Hopefully new item freeze is fixed by then”

Especially if this year will be as intense as I’m sure it will be.

I had no problems with rewards until I was rewarded the Lv 50 Item in Aurora. I believe it was Lv 50 I reached. I don’t know, if I enter either Public or Personal Spaces I have to Hard Boot and Delete my PlayStation®Home file from Game Data Utility.

I have to use Home,,,, *sigh*. :(
