Road to Greatness Returns, Tours Across the U.S.

Michael Steranka's Avatar Posted by Sony Interactive Entertainment

The Road to Greatness tour is back for 2016, bringing the latest and greatest in PlayStation gaming to festivals and conventions across the United States by way of a badass 16-wheeler truck that unfolds like a Transformer.

We’re hitting a different city every week from now through November, so don’t miss your opportunity to go hands-on with some amazing games and experiences. Some highlights on the truck this year include:

PlayStation VR

Road to Greatness, 2016

For the first time ever, we’re taking PlayStation VR on the road with us with a number of different games to play. If you haven’t had a chance to try this yet, you definitely should find a way to make it out to one of the Road to Greatness stops.

We will only have the capacity for a few dozen people each day to play PlayStation VR, but we’re giving PlayStation.Blog readers a little “cheat code” for priority access. All you have to do is send a tweet to @HeyPlayStation declaring that you want to try PlayStation VR and show that Tweet to a staff member. It’s our way of saying “Thank You” for being such die-hard PlayStation fans.

“King of the Couch” Tournaments

Every day you’ll have chances to earn some awesome PlayStation games and collectibles through the “King of the Couch” local multiplayer lounge.

Prizes range from PS4 games to PlayStation swag. This is your chance to prove that you’re the king of your city and have something to show for it.

Exclusive Giveaways

Throughout the tour we’ll be giving away a ton of amazing PlayStation items that can’t be obtained anywhere else. In addition to PlayStation shirts, hats, sunglasses, and drawstring bags, the Road to Greatness tour will be the only way to get your hands on #36 in the PlayStation Collectible Card Series that launched at PlayStation Experience 2015. This gold foil card will be one of the rarest to date, so nab one while you still can!

Attendees who register at the truck will also receive an exclusive PlayStation Store offer related to the various games on the tour. If you plan on checking an event out, don’t forget to register!

PlayStation Vue

Road to Greatness, 2016

Also, for the first time, we’ve added our cloud-based live TV service, PlayStation Vue, to our Road to Greatness Tour. So be sure to check out the PlayStation Vue service at the registration tent, where you can explore the innovative UI, participate in trivia contests, and win prizes for this sweet TV experience. It’s also a great way to watch the big game and catch up on your favorite shows in the lounge.

We’re excited to be on the road again, bringing PlayStation goodness from coast to coast. If you’re interested in more details about the Road to Greatness tour, check out our website. It will be constantly updated with the latest routing information and playable games. We hope to see you soon!

I really hope this shows up near my city, even though it’s a pretty small city. Buy I mostly want the prizes and I want to get to play the PSVR. This is amazing you guys. This is why PlayStation is the best.

Winning this last year was the greatest thing ever! I have never had so much fun in my life. PlayStation really knows how to treat it’s fans at these events.

    SilentNova said:

    April 30th, 11:05 am

    I live in Wake Forest. Pretty sure it is not going to be that close unfortunately since Raleigh would not be that bad depending.

No where near Ohio :(

    cowmamba said:

    April 29th, 8:48 pm

    I feel your pain, haha! I’m in Indiana, it seems like Ohio and Indiana always get passed on for all the cool stuff.

    PanTheMan16 said:

    April 30th, 3:57 am

    Both of which I’m sure are far better than Southern CA and NY. (not being sarcastic)

    drd7of14 said:

    April 30th, 12:13 pm

    …But it’s not even coming to New York, at least so far. Last year’s didn’t, so I assume it will sadly be the same.

cowmamba said:

April 29th, 8:47 pm

Bummer! Skipping Indianapolis again. Hopefully one day I’ll manage to get to one!

Trendy_Kid said:

Hitting Saint Louis but not Kansas City….whaaaaaat?!

    Squadren_64 said:

    April 30th, 8:52 am

How much are the Tickets do we have to pay for a hotel

JanusDS said:

April 30th, 5:27 am

Man, y’all need to hit up the southeast US, more specifically central NC! We never get any love from Playstation shows and tours and we’ve shown PS mad love for over 20 years! Well, at least me and a lot of my friends have, lol. :D

JaymeSpengler201 said:

April 30th, 7:30 am

Would be fun to see the tour hit alamogordo, new mexico!!!

Squadren_64 said:

April 30th, 8:50 am

Gosh, I wish you guys would come to Kansas City instead of St. Louis! There’s already enough to do in St. Louis!

Squadren_64 said:

April 30th, 8:54 am

And of course they’re stopping in California twice for whatever reason. I wish you guys would branch out more to your ENTIRE fan base. Not just where all of the rich people are. lol

That’s a depressing looking road trip so far. Sucks for the driver.

BladeX777 said:

Chicago!!!!!!!! Lets!!! Go!

drd7of14 said:

April 30th, 12:11 pm

It would be nice if something like this came to New York for once. These tours never stop by here. Heading to PA or NJ is never convenient.

RPGZieg said:

April 30th, 4:10 pm

Please come to AZ Tucson or Phoenix would love to have this swing by! :)

    ccanfield1 said:

    April 30th, 9:19 pm

Asumos666 said:

April 30th, 8:31 pm

kingdomkiller3 said:

April 30th, 9:40 pm

xXGOD_OF_GUNSXx1 said:

No Love for Florida either, head scratcher. I understand Miami is as far southeast as you can get, but nothing in Florida at all?

My last pay check was $9500 working 12 hours a week online. My sisters friend has been averaging 15k for months now and she works about 20 hours a week. I can’t believe how easy it was once I tried it out. This is what I do…

Not even one confirmed date for a New York State, man I really hope Sony will schedule a date somewhere on Long Island or New York City.
