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!

+ sciroccopsn on June 1st, 2011 at 8:41 am said:

it would have been enough just to watch the presentation here on the blog, this is just too much, you guys should focus on the infrastructure, so we don’t have this downtime again.

Exactly how long will the Home virtual E3 booth be up? Will it still be up (with all the same reward items) through the weekend, by any chance?

@Locust_Star Is this live stream gonna be the same as what is being broadcasted on G4? If it isn’t then that gives me a good reason to come cause I want to see the entire E3 event (I’ve already scheduled to record what’s happening on G4).

“You can watch SCEA President and CEO Jack Tretton reveal all of the big E3 announcements”

Sorry, but that only confirms that I WON’T be watching. I can’t stand that guy. He’s way too full of himself and is so condescending that it disgusts me.

Thanks for going to such great efforts to broadcast the event to people who can’t go in person, but I’d much rather get the news later in text form than listen to Jack Tretton speak for 2 hours.

What channel on TV will PlayStation press conference be on?


+ burningwind on June 6th, 2011 at 8:15 am said:

Right around the time I will be getting Infamous 2. I will have to try to get all the stuff quick so I can get back to electrifying people.


+ Kinko-fa-la on June 6th, 2011 at 9:32 am said:

@molinaroa200 As far as I know E3 is on G4 this time around so if I were you I’d check there.


+ baroda on June 6th, 2011 at 12:45 pm said:

Great News!
First time I am experiencing E3 live stream!
Thank you Sony for working hard for this event. Can’t miss tonight!

Why won’t it work?


+ JWSThree on June 6th, 2011 at 5:51 pm said:

No press conference in Home today. You shouldn’t let your mouth write checks that your *ahem* can’t cash.


+ theUgly_Dukling on June 7th, 2011 at 12:12 pm said:

First the press conference doesn’t show in the theater. Now the option to go to the booths aren’t working. Get your damn act together, Sony. Don’t advertise what you can’t deliver. I take time off work to go into your already dumb Home space to try to experience some special events, and you choke. Getting on my nerves…


+ EyeSeeYew on June 7th, 2011 at 4:31 pm said:

I keep getting errors too! I got the same errors yesterday when I was trying to watch E3 from Home. Can’t even connect.
