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

Locust_Star's Avatar Posted by 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!

I Mean… When You Show Up With Pieces Of Toilet Paper Stuck To Your FACE From Nicking It While Shaveing, EveryBody Kinda Knows…Right? But…Seriously… When Your Co-Workers See That Your Ass Has Got Pieces Of Tissue Stuck All Over It… THEY ARE GOING TO TALK ABOUT IT, You Know.

I would expect for my ps3 YLOD and I don’t have the money right now to buy a new one and I’m not sending it to Sony that would cost almost has much and I haven’t found anyone around here to fix it for me

JLPfreak said:

Jak and Daxter? – new game for ps3, or a trilogy? How about a new sly cooper game, or Parasite Eve 3, or even a new Ape Escape game!!!!! Come on, don’t let it go to nothing!!!!! Anyways, can’t wait to see the new games coming for the system and for the network!!

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

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?


May 31st, 5:54 pm


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

MonkeyGibber said:

May 31st, 5:59 pm

@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.

mitch099 said:

May 31st, 6:23 pm

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.

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.
