Experience E3 2015 Live in Theaters on June 15th


Geoff Keighley's Avatar Posted by on May 21, 2015 // Host, Producer

UPDATE: Since we’ve received a lot of comments asking which movie theaters will be participating, we’ve added the list to the bottom of this post. As a reminder, tickets will be made available at tomorrow (Wednesday, May 27th) at 9:00am PT.

Whenever I interact with the PlayStation community I’m always struck by their passion and excitement for gaming. I saw this firsthand at E3 2014, when I teamed up with PlayStation and Fathom Events to bring the E3 Press Conference live to over 10,000 fans around the country as part of the PlayStation E3 Experience in movie theaters. It was amazing to see fans line up all across America to experience the news and announcements live with others in the community.

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.

You and fellow members of the PlayStation community will get to see the full PlayStation E3 press conference in HD on the big screen, plus there are special bonuses for those who come out to the theater experience. I’ll be hosting an exclusive 30-minute in-theater post show with extended footage and interviews with developers, and everyone who attends will take home a PlayStation surprise, which will consist of PlayStation goods and digital codes we can’t disclose yet. (Last year attendees received early access to the Destiny Alpha and Battlefield: Hardline beta, along with a great poster and VIP laminate).

To make it fair to everyone in the community, this year we are giving you advance notice of ticket sales. Free tickets will be made available on Wednesday, May 27 starting at 9:00 a.m. PT at Eighty percent of theater capacity will be reserved for ticket holders, with 20% of the theater held for those on the wait list, who will be admitted on a first-come, first-served basis. We saw the big lines last year and want to make sure that everyone has a fair chance to be in the theater.

The PlayStation.Blog guys also tell me that their big PlayStation LiveCast show will be back again in a big way, kicking off with the PlayStation Press Conference on June 15th, starting at 5:45 p.m. Pacific Time. They’ll have plenty of game demos, new trailers, and developer interviews over the next three days – and you’ll be able to watch on your PS4 or PS3 using the Live Events Viewer app, too. Stay tuned for more details.

    We are releasing the theater list on the morning of May 27, next Wed. There will be at least one theater in every state in the US, including Hawaii and Alaska even.


+ Ejsponge61 on May 21st, 2015 at 7:10 am said:

I went last year and I had a great time! Not too often when a bunch of Playstation fans are all put together like that! I will definitely be trying to go this year, but since I’m already taking off of work for MomoCon next week, I will be really lucky if I can get one more night off so close. But here’s hoping I can make it!


+ XwingVmanX on May 21st, 2015 at 7:11 am said:

It was fun last year, got to meet other PS fans. I hope they have a theater in providence,ri so I don’t have to go all the way to Boston. The only downside about going was we kept losing connection. Luckily most of it was fine, but that definitely needs to be addressed.


+ Ejsponge61 on May 21st, 2015 at 7:12 am said:

I agree with @Tidusfanboy. A list of theaters would be appreciated! Just so I can try to plan out that day as far in advance as possible.

Yeah, I agree with #4, I’d love to see a list of theaters in advance, so I know if I need to be pining near my computer next week!

I enjoyed the one they held last year, hopefully I’m able to attend the one this year too.


+ mixedkidbx on May 21st, 2015 at 7:30 am said:

Please tell me NYC will do more than 1 thearter this year. Last year the 1 place got filled up instantly. I would have been up in there but when you got over 8 million people (just in NYC and not counting other areas outside NYC) tickets go very quick


+ dkarlowicz10 on May 21st, 2015 at 7:31 am said:

Please don’t forget the Vita. Original Vita AAA game announcements would be welcomed. If not, ico, shadow of colossus, San Andreas (from 2K) .


+ JohnVVayne on May 21st, 2015 at 7:33 am said:

I’m interested, but it’d help if I knew what theaters this was coming to. Is there a list somewhere?

I’d love for this to come to Europe! I know Sony generally plans their press conferences in the middle of the night for us, but that doesn’t stop us from watching ;)

Can’t wait for E3!


+ gohan16ken on May 21st, 2015 at 7:37 am said:

I am looking forward to your presentation at E3. Please announce a 1) 2TB PS4, 2) that those who brought games digitally on PS3 will get it on PS Now at no additional cost, 3) that you will be removing the 10% OS reserve for PS3, 4) that external HDD support for PS3 and PS4 to individually backup and loan games, 5) the ability to link Ultraviolet to PS Video, 6) a PS1, PS2, and P3 emulator, and 7) 2 step verification for PSN. Thanks.

Please make the giveaways valid for more than 24 hours. Last year there were a lot of people who went to this and then didn’t have a chance to enter their code to download the giveaways before they expired. Some people can’t be online 24/7. It would have been nice to have had a mention of the expiration date somewhere too.

+ krae_man on May 21st, 2015 at 7:48 am said:

Any reason why the number of Canadian cities didn’t increase? 3 is the same as last year(I’m guessing Vancouver, Toronto, and Montreal) again.


+ gus_xl on May 21st, 2015 at 7:49 am said:

I went to this last year and it was a lot of fun. The stream lagging out is better when there’s tons of people to boo with you.

+ Skater_Ricky on May 21st, 2015 at 7:52 am said:

Please come to Springfield, Missouri. Last year I had to drive to Kansas City, Missouri and that was 4 hour’s away and I didn’t get the appreciation I needed for going so far out of my way. Even dragged the Wife with me. We have a IMAX and many many theaters here in Springfield. After all it’s the 3rd largest city in Missouri. Please come here.

Will this be shown at any theaters in Detroit, MI?


+ bleedingwicked on May 21st, 2015 at 7:56 am said:

Sort of disappointed with the announcement first. As someone that visits the Blog multiple times a day, I wish it was the same as last year. If you thought tickets ran out fast last year, they are going to go even faster this year. While the Playstation goodies last year weren’t bad, how about something a little better. Maybe give out a free Vita or PS4 to one fan at each theater. With the way sign ups are, It’d be really easy to do a lottery at each theater.

Regardless thanks Playstation for doing this again!


+ Mercenary09 on May 21st, 2015 at 7:58 am said:

Thanks for doing this for the Playstation Nation again Geoff! Last year I drove 4 hours to the one in Birmingham, AL. I hope you’ll have one closer to me this year so I don’t have to drive so far.


+ TwinDad on May 21st, 2015 at 8:00 am said:

Went to Seattle last year, had fun. I might go again this year, I understand the desire for fairness, however it would be nice to list a list of locations prior to the signups. I’m not sure I can get to the theater, and with the mad rush on tickets, I might not be able to get there and either signup and take a place of somebody who could or plot my transportation and miss out.

I hope a theater is near where I live so I can lose my mind with a bunch of other Sony fans! Can’t believe E3 is almost here already!


+ spacedelete2 on May 21st, 2015 at 8:31 am said:

lets hope Sony actually has some good games and features to show. Sony’s E3 2014 was complete trash. we need PS1 and PS2 emulation for PS4, DLNA and folders. there also needs to be alot more brand new games. i’m having regret from buying PS4 at launch so this E3 needs to satisfy me or else i stop giving money to Sony.

I hope I get to go again this year. Last year was a blast. Almost like being at the real deal! The whole theater cheering together. What an amazing vibe.Thanks for doing this again.
And please, if the goodies are going to expire within 24 hours again, would you note it somewhere or mention it in the theater? I was crushed when I found I couldn’t redeem stuff. I hope it’s coming to a theater close to me. Hard to get anywhere in LA @ 5:45.
Thanks again for the heads up.
