PlayStation Experience on Tour Now

PlayStation Experience

I’m excited to announce that the PlayStation Experience is back on tour for 2012 and we have some awesome games and experiences planned for you, our community. For those of you new to the PlayStation Experience, every year we tour the country’s biggest concerts and festivals to show off all of our latest games and gadgets. This is your chance to meet other local PlayStation enthusiasts, compete in your favorite PlayStation titles, and most importantly, get your hands on unreleased games! I guess there are also the live performances to check out too, but who goes to music festivals for that? Especially when you can play:

…and that’s just the list of games that I can share with you! To top it all off, we will be giving away loads of PlayStation prizes everywhere we go. Trust me when I say, if you love video games and PlayStation, you will definitely want to make your way to the PlayStation Experience. Here’s a list of our confirmed stops:

Date Event Location
May 18 – May 20 Rock on the Range Columbus, OH
May 26 – May 28 Movement Detroid, MI
Jun 2 – Jun 3 Free Press Summerfest Houston, TX

You mean Detroit Michigan right? How do I find out where exactly you guys will be here in Detroit?

I would like to go but what should I expect when I show up ? Other than what is listed above.

May 18th, 1:26 pm

y’all wont b back in texas until November -_- im sure most of these titles will b out by then, can u squeeze Austin residents in earlier the November???

tho i am curious about the titles you cant talk about yet…so there might b something playable that still wont b out during that time.

And nothing for North Carolina. Ah well, big stuff like this always tends to hit places where they can get the most people, at the expense of those who can’t travel.

    We’re super, mega excited to get these games to you guys before they even come out! Be sure to let us know what you think!

Well, no Playstation Experience for THIS Mainer. Try coming a little further northeast next year. At least Boston, come on!

ReptileHand said:

May 18th, 3:11 pm

Would love it if it came around New England. I like free stuff and free gameplay. But again it’s probably only near the festivals with a lot of numbers up there.

You guys are adding more stops? If so, please try to make your way to Atlanta, GA. I finally have the freedom to drive to these type of events by myself, so I could be pretty much any day in the summer. And thanks for even having events like this in the first place.

I’m glad theres a PA stop, I was afraid I’d have to travel really far to make it. I don’t even know what Musikfest is but I’ll be there! I can’t wait, there’s a really huge Playstation lineup coming! I’m really excited.

You guys need to come to the pacific northwest. It would be great!

BigTallChris said:

May 18th, 3:32 pm

Nothing west of Albuquerque, NM?!?!?! What about all of the West Coast Playstation gamers? I live in Alaska, so I don’t expect you to come all the way up here (maybe Anchorage)…but nothing at all on the West Coast…that just seems ridiculous!

Playstation All Stars looks incredibly fun!!!! I hope it has a story mode. E3 is only a couple weeks away, can’t wait to hear more.

Nikocity1 said:

May 18th, 3:53 pm

SephTiger said:

May 18th, 4:07 pm

So are we going to have to pay to get into FunFunFun Fest in Austin just for the PlayStation Experience or what?

The5rozos said:

May 18th, 4:13 pm

Really? No California? :(

Darn, I really wanted to get my hands on LBP Karting and All-Stars.

no NY :'(


May 18th, 4:55 pm

No LA? I guess we get E3 so I can’t complain even though E3 is not open to the public. I am really hoping Jeff, and the Sony crew is putting something together for us LA people before E3!! Still happy people around the country get to try out these games before they come out. I already have Journey, and Starhawk, and I am enjoying them! I am looking forward to almost every 1st party Sony game they have announced so far!!

Thank you guys so much for finally coming to Kansas City! I’ve been wanting a PlayStation event here for years! I’m just about to buy some All-Star Fan Fest Tickets. They’re $30, but it’s worth it. Would there be any reason to come two separate days, or would one be long enough to play everything?

B-Real206 said:

May 18th, 6:33 pm

No Seattle love?? Why no west coast stops at all?????

angelspawn77 said:

May 18th, 7:15 pm

Why no Las Vegas? This is one of the most popular cities in the world, seems like a no brainer to me, last time this tour happened there was no Vegas either :(

DarkOne_PR said:

May 18th, 7:30 pm

No Puerto Rico again….. sigh…. Might as well open a special PSblog PR so at least we can participate in at LEAST ONE thing the ps blog does… disappointed in the US PS blog treating us like we are not customers and fans… :(

some of the ppl here are complaining but at least they live there in the states and can get trains and shlt but WE are fu^%$# up in here.

I am at Rock on the Range right now. I did NOT see LittleBigPlanet Karting, PlayStation All-Stars Battle Royale, 4am, Journey, Madden, FIFA or NBA. I played Twisted Metal, Mortal Kombat and Street Fighter vs Tekken last night.

So what gives? Are you rotating the games daily or what? I really wanted to play LBP Kart, Battle Royal and 4am!!!

Junbo79 said:

May 19th, 6:44 am

Oh and how do I get free stuff? I pay for tons of stuff, but I love free stuff even more! When I was in the truck, I thought the registration computers were to register for PSN? Is it to register to get hooked up with freebies? All I got was people asking me what they thought of the games I was playing.

Nates4Christ said:

Oh my gosh thanks so much for showing the much needed respect for the gulf coast. I really want to meet you guys in Pensecola Florida. This is soooo great nothing ever comes down here and I have been sooo excited to play LBPKarting and Playstation Battle Royal!

Nates4Christ said:

May 19th, 8:52 am

I see that the pensacola fl is going to be at deluna which I looked up is a concert. How am I going to find you guys? Do I have to pay for admission to the concert or can I just go straight to you guys? I don’t know where or who to ask this so if someone would help me find out where I would be very grateful. I would like to start making plans now.

May 20th, 8:55 pm

Try to spread out where each location is per state next time. As for Texas, Houston and Austin are so close to each other. Try Dallas/Fort Worth next time.
