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:
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.
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!
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!
