Cade Peterson's Avatar Posted by Community Manager, PlayStation Digital Platforms

This week in PlayStation Home, we open the Virtual PlayStation E3 booth for pre-registration, earning you an exclusive BEYOND: Two Souls PS3 theme and other Home rewards. Code Mystics surprises us with a retro-style arcade personal space, Game Mechanics introduces a horse racing game, and summertime is here in the Granzella Teahouse. Also, don’t forget to register for the Paradise Springs Poker Tournament —it’s on Saturday, June 8th!

Virtual PlayStation E3 Booth Opens for Pre-Registration

The biggest video game event of the year, E3, is almost upon us! Following tradition, we’ve taken the actual schematics of this year’s physical PlayStation booth and recreated it in PlayStation Home, right down to the finest details. Few are fortunate enough to attend the real event, but we love sharing the experience with all the PlayStation fans out there. This E3 is shaping up to be an extraordinary one — you don’t want to miss it.

Starting later today, everyone who pre-registers in our virtual E3 booth will earn exclusive rewards, including a Beyond: Two Souls PS3 theme. This is only available for those who pre-register this week!


Log into PlayStation Home later today to pre-register and snag this exclusive bonus!

When E3’s doors open on Tuesday June 11th at noon Pacific (3:00pm Eastern), the virtual doors open too.

This year, we have even more awesome rewards, which you can snag by completing various quests. Here are a few:

Exclusive The Last Of Us PS3 Theme


Two free PlayStation Mobile games: Rymdkapsel and Haunt the House


Free trial of Music Unlimited


Exclusive Destiny PS3 theme


Free trial of PS Plus


Exclusive first wave beta access to Killzone: Mercenary, available later this year on PS Vita


Jump into PlayStation Home before Monday night and pre-register to earn your Beyond: Two Souls exclusive PS3 theme, then get ready for opening day, June 11th. See you there!

I found the RED comments from the moderator to be very informative. thx for that!!

I hope it isnt a limited event since I am planning to check when I get home. It would have been nice to atleast get a ball park timing of when we should be there.

@98 I already talked to LOOT , last week and they said they have NO SAY in what Music channels get put into the Radios, so then I talked to RADIO IO and they said Sony is the one that can Fix it , Its on their Part, and so Here I am .

Where’s the E3 thing? I can’t find it anywhere! I’m EU.

tj_martins said:

June 6th, 11:58 am

@104, the E3 thing is the biggest gaming event of the year. It is usually held on the West Coast of the US. (I think it is always California)

EU would prbably have to settle for viewing it on streaming or in Playstation Home, or on the Vita (for the first time ever)

TBV121 said:

June 6th, 12:12 pm

So, for the Killzone Mercenary Beta, how will we be able to access that? Also, I heared the E3 conference will be streamed to the PS Vita. Will there be an app for that?

sebastianseb said:

June 7th, 3:48 am

@94 I’ve been through all the navigators menues, no E3. I’m in Sweden, don’t know if we get it later? Been checking in home a few times the last days.

The_Dukenator said:

June 7th, 7:15 am

@114 June 11lth.

Proteus581 said:

June 7th, 11:22 am

Will the Beyond Two Souls theme only be available after the 11th or is it available now?

I’ve never used Home but this seems like a really good use of it.

alaskafogorhom said:

X – Go to, loading, and i’m redirected to hub. Is this correct? I need make some combo X -> O ->->?

blueice604 said:

June 7th, 1:18 pm

Can someone tell me how to sign up?

I just got in Home for the first time and automatically agreed on a few things and saw a msg saying thank you for pre reg…but I haven’t done anything! Does it auto pre-reg you once you go into Home?

HELP plz…

blueice604 said:

June 7th, 1:37 pm

I became a lady (why?) standing there, so how do I pre reg?

Auto-saver said:

June 7th, 5:15 pm

I think you’re automatically pre-registered when you logged in to Home. You can’t access the booth until E3.

RobDirtDTA said:

June 7th, 9:41 pm

Ok so don’t know if I’m the only one confused about this but, i preregistered and got the shirt and saw the message that said thank you for preregistering but how do i get the BEYOND theme?

Ra_The_Sun_King said:

June 8th, 7:41 am

Can Someone Fix all the M-10 errors, I even try to go to my Personal space and it says The Lobby Is Full and it sends me back to my Studio . And NO , it is not my Internet connection .

Would anyone be able to tell me when the Virtual E3 booth will be over? I’m on vacation the week of E3 and all I have is my Vita! I would love to get Haunt the House and all the other rewards.

wilfareus said:

June 8th, 10:18 pm

I can’t find the booth

The_Dukenator said:

June 9th, 4:08 am

@124 I think after E3 is over.

@122 You’ll receive a voucher for it.

@117 On the 11th, you’ll get a voucher for it.

Kasaix said:

June 9th, 8:53 am

How do you actually get the dynamic theme? I can’t find it. When it said I pre-registered, I just got a shirt with a badge that said E3 2013. That was it.

nussplistulle said:

June 9th, 10:46 am

I don’t even know where to register. When I use the navigator, all I see is a sign that I can’t enter.

IDivineMyth said:

June 9th, 1:46 pm

I try access de activity board,but appears an erro
(anable to access server,try again later) :/

The_Dukenator said:

June 9th, 8:06 pm

@127 Did you miss the part about the voucher?

@129 Hmm. Might be fixed when E3 Booth opens. The last quest was the Pirate one as I recall.

punjabiboy14 said:

June 10th, 12:24 am

Macello said:

June 10th, 5:48 am

I do not have a Playstation 3 but I have Playstation Plus. How can I get the Vita content on my Vita? Thanks.

NorakD said:

June 10th, 2:10 pm

So I just logged in to PS Home to pre-register, but it just goes to the screen that says it opens tomorrow and redirects back to the Hub. Does that mean I’m pre-reg, or what? I’d hate to miss out just because it’s closed and it’s still not past time yet.

NorakD said:

June 10th, 2:55 pm

Well, I guess not…since after further research apparently it was supposed to be an actual booth…*sigh* Once again, false dates, “June 5 – 10” and NO times posted when it actually ends. So then I’m assuming it was June 5 – 9, NOT the 10th. Since today IS the 10th and the booth is closed…

Zion546 said:

June 10th, 3:31 pm

Hello, I have a quick question. I logged onto PlayStation Home today (I never used it before) and I was wondering how do I pre register for the Virtual PlayStation E3 booth, do I just log on? Or am I suppose to look for something because I couldn’t find anything. Sorry if someone asked this before, and thanks for the help!

Zigsta29 said:

June 11th, 7:15 am

I am so glad I was messing around with PS Home yesterday! I didn’t know anything about the free theme and other stuff until I installed it! Is this the only time when PS Home is really active?

dspoon187 said:

June 11th, 11:22 am

I’m a little confused. Will quests become available once the doors open? Because I keep getting a Cannot Connect to server message.

bth718 said:

June 11th, 1:08 pm

Sony shouldnt assume that everyone has their original wireless controller. Mine worn out so thanks to this assumption i cant complete a quest that requires a wireless controller with six axis. so thank you sony for showing me how useless my wired controllers are.

sammy9005 said:

im confused ive not recieved a download code for the 2 psm games it just says you have recieved a voucher code on both the game pictures and i also can’t find the killzone mercenary beta please help and whats going on with the 2 psm games

CTguitarguy said:

June 11th, 1:26 pm

I finished the quests to get the destiny voucher code for the dynamic theme, and every time i try to load the code at the kiosk it says “failed to download voucher code” I am really upset :(.

kotec123 said:

June 11th, 1:32 pm

I feel REALLY let down as well. PS plus 30 day trial code says “failed to load”. I spent all this time doing quests, and will probably just give up now because whats the point if we won’t get any goodies in return?

Sir_Voodoo said:

June 11th, 1:34 pm

i cant bring up the voucher code for the destiny theme its says “failed to download code” and im upset cause that’s the reason why i did the e3 quest…

CTguitarguy said:

June 11th, 1:37 pm

This kind of hiccup and connectivity issue is what I associate with ps3, psn, and this is my first time using home, and sure enough issues here too. Come on guys…..I want my themes. We all do.

wash4156 said:

June 11th, 1:41 pm

im have the same problem with “Failed To Download Code” for beyond two souls them and that shirt

GuiltyBlaze said:

June 11th, 1:48 pm

I did all the quests up to the Last of Us quest, tried to get my voucher code so I could redeem the dynamic theme and it refused to give it to me no matter how hard I kept retrying. I thought it was a bug so I tried to quit out of psn home and back in only to see that ALL MY QUEST PROGRESS WAS ERASED. What is going on guys?

RobertRobbins said:

June 11th, 1:49 pm

the voucher codes are not working for many people at the E3 booth

wash4156 said:

June 11th, 1:50 pm

@ GuiltyBlaze same thing for me but i still have all my rewards from them so this is a small bug
