This list has a distinct lack of a date in FL. I’ll wait for that.

    There are still a lot of events to be announced! Stay tuned for some updates on that front in the coming weeks.

How about Philadelphia?


+ AriesWarlock on April 24th, 2014 at 10:20 am said:

Agreed with #1. In Doral, FL or somewhere around the international airport of Miami would be great.


+ jgrizzle358 on April 24th, 2014 at 10:21 am said:

The closest one to me is in Wisconsin. I know Summerfest admission is $18. Will it cost anything extra to get into the PlayStation event?

    There’s no additional cost to get into the Road To Greatness event. Look forward to seeing you there!

That is a RANDOM collection of locations…


+ MakoSOLIDER on April 24th, 2014 at 10:25 am said:

Yup! No New Jersey!


+ JMBlakk on April 24th, 2014 at 10:26 am said:

No east coast love, at least you our doing this until November. Hope you guys come to South Florida, everywhere in Broward would be nice.


+ JoGam on April 24th, 2014 at 10:33 am said:

Yes Philadelphia. Every time you guys have an event, Philadelphia is excluded. Last Year Microsoft Xbox One had an event in Philadelphia and had a great turnout and only 20% of Philadelphia attended. The other 80% are PlayStation fans. ;-) Lets book Philadelphia.


+ Deadpoolian on April 24th, 2014 at 10:34 am said:

Sounds cool! Nothing close enough to where I live at the moment, but here’s hoping Las Vegas is added to the list down the line~ :D


+ luvtoseek on April 24th, 2014 at 10:39 am said:

Hark! Yes, Philly, Boston, & I’m in NYC- confirmed East Coast is all Microsoft & Nintendo peeps? Haha, I kid… but if ye can fit us in your roadmap, include our Canadian friends too!


+ Thwip on April 24th, 2014 at 10:50 am said:

Hey Michael. If you truly want to drive the “Road to Greatness”, turn that bus towards Canada, specifically Vancouver. :)


+ Nightmare142 on April 24th, 2014 at 10:55 am said:

I agree with JoGam Philadelphia never gets any love… now i have to search on ebay for the PlayStation prizes i missed out on :(


+ ExpiredWindex on April 24th, 2014 at 11:02 am said:

You seem to have forgotten about us Canadians again, eh?
We got good pancakes and maple syrop.
We once had a bird as a president as well :D
Come see what the fun is all aboot!

WHOA………………… No New York ??????

I need to speak to your Manager kind sir.


+ CommandingTiger on April 24th, 2014 at 11:12 am said:

How About the East Coast? NY? Toronto? Montreal, capital of gaming?


+ snakeeyes211 on April 24th, 2014 at 11:17 am said:

I hope we get one in Miami Florida


+ iM_soWAVY416 on April 24th, 2014 at 11:22 am said:

It sad to see it always in the US, what tick me off is how it says “across the country” more like “within US” or “across US” . Don’t mention “across the country” if it’s only within US. When someone tells me “across the country” I’m thinking all over the world

Please come to Canada/Toronto!

Man, I wish this was coming to Atlanta, but I’m excited for others!

Aww… we never get anything cool happening here in Los Angeles. :(

Just kidding!

Is The Order going to be one of the playable games?

Yes, a Tampa or Orlando FL would be amazing. I’ll keep my fingers crossed.

+ wilfareus on April 24th, 2014 at 12:00 pm said:

This sounds exciting!

But hey, some of us are really sad that the PSOne and PSP Compatibility turned out to be a bug/glitch

the point is we are not trying to blame Sony. as many have already said, Sony doesn’t and can’t control the entire license agreement. but with all the downloads from this glitch + if we make ourselves heard, I think Sony does have a good case to negotiate with the publishers to rethink about this

“hey look, gamers want this, people are willing to spend money to buy older games, shall we work things out?”



+ Evilspacecow on April 24th, 2014 at 12:29 pm said:

You do realize the NASCAR Sprint Cup Series is at the “Kansas Speedway” which is in Kansas City, Kansas not Missouri.

HA. It says beautiful Indio, CA. I grew up in Indio, the only way it can be considered beautiful is if you enjoy dirt.

Darn you New York! Why you so far from the PlayStation’s????!? :( I’d love you guys to come nearby here. Maybe even more local out on Long Island. ;) Pssst…Nassau Colosseum! Pssst…


+ Sammyv17 on April 24th, 2014 at 2:28 pm said:

Do we have to have tickets to these events? I want to go to the one in Kansas City but I don’t want to get Nascar tickets to play new ps4 games. Does anyone know?


+ lunchbox206 on April 24th, 2014 at 2:32 pm said:

Please could NYC be a place this comes to, you know New York does like, maybe love. you guys

Don’t forget Tucson, Arizona! Lots of gamers here in the desert.


+ BlueBl1zzard on April 24th, 2014 at 2:39 pm said:

@iM_soWAVY416 umm….not hating on Canada or anything, but when I hear “across the country” that’s exactly what I think — across the country. Not sure where you got the entire world from….

But anyway, yes, some Florida love would be nice ;)


+ XDkakashiDX on April 24th, 2014 at 2:45 pm said:

Summerfest! Heck yeah, I don’t think you guys were there last year, and it kinda sucked. Nothing like playing playstation in between seeing bands! And the first day of Summerfest is my birthday!


+ xClayMeow on April 24th, 2014 at 3:11 pm said:

Nothing in NY? Really?

Long Island would be preferable, but I’d hop on the train to Manhattan if need be!

Sorry, but Greatness Awaits Next (Next) Gen cause what we are handed right now is awful!!!

no Orlando, Tampa, or Jacksonville Fl?

Coming to Charlotte is a MUST! Also, there’s plenty of events you could host you guys!

Never any love for Puerto Rico :(


+ midnightshade on April 24th, 2014 at 4:57 pm said:

I give a vote for Philadelphia, please!! We have convention centers here too you know.

You guys took out your Sony store from the Philadelphia Premium outlets after it was there for at least 7-8 years… do you guys just not like Philly? I know Sid is from that way and so was Jeff (before he left to work for the other guys).

Would love a Philly event!
