PlayStation Experience 2016 Hits Anaheim, CA this December

Sid Shuman's Avatar Posted by Director, Social Media

Update: PlayStation Experience attendees now get a special bundle ticket offer for The Game Awards, taking place on December 1 in Los Angeles, just two days before PlayStation Experience 2016. The Game Awards tickets can be purchased as an add-on to PlayStation Experience tickets for just $10 extra. If you have already bought your PlayStation Experience tickets, you may log into your account to retroactively add the bundle to your purchase. Supplies are limited, so get them while you can right here. Offer is only valid through 11/21/16, while supplies last.

Here we go again! For PlayStation Experience 2016, we’re honored to be setting up shop in the fine city of Anaheim, CA this December 3 and 4. Inside the Anaheim Convention Center, attendees will get hands-on time with the PS4 Pro on 4K TVs and dozens of PlayStation VR demos, PlayStation Showcase, developer panels, merchandise, and a whole lot more.

The show will kick off at 10:00 AM on Saturday with the PlayStation Showcase, and from there, you’ll be let loose to play all weekend long!

Capcom Cup will also be returning to PlayStation Experience this year, with the finals taking place on Saturday at 6:00 PM. Watch the top qualifying players from the Capcom Pro Tour compete for more than $250,000 in prizing and the chance to be crowned the Street Fighter V world champion.

Neat. I live nearby Anaheim and I’ve been to that convention before several times.

$40-75 (plus $15 parking) though.

    Lucky, I wish Sony would have a convention closer to where I live at least once, rather than always having them in California, the other side of the country! Since I live in MA I would have to either skip class and drive for 48 hours straight then rent a room or buy a plane ticket/ rent a room. It looks sooo cool, kind of makes me want to move to California after I graduate.

Well this is the first I’ve heard of this!

Post lists early bird-2-day pricing at $65 but the site had them for $60? Just an FYI.

krae_man said:

September 27th, 5:03 pm

Seriously though.

Thank you for not having the regular price and early bird available for purchase simultaneously this time.

Step in the right direction.

    krae_man said:

    September 27th, 5:35 pm

    If you make a decision to increase the early bird capacity again this year, make the decision before it runs out in the first place.

    Way easier then what you did last year.

SWEETNESS. Thank you guys. PlayStation Experience 2016 will be year three of the tradition.

    I missed Vegas.

    Owned… :) it ok dude. Second one was better. Vegas was good but definitely like San Francisco more.

Any hotel specials?

    Sid Shuman said:

    September 29th, 2:26 pm

    Yes! This is a late breaking update, but we do have some discounted hotel options. Sorry for the delay: http://arestravel.com/9078_hotel-list.html

    jefXfree said:

    September 27th, 7:18 pm

    If you’re not from the area but plan on driving in i’d definitely look at areas just outside the city…

    jefXfree said:

    September 27th, 7:19 pm

    It’s literally across the street from Disney, so hotels can be expensive.

    krae_man said:

    September 29th, 5:12 pm

    Hi Sid,

    Date is wrong at the top. Says Dec 4-5 instead of 3-4.

    en-ca version of the playstation experience website still says $65 for the 2 day as well.

viceforce said:

September 27th, 5:07 pm

Can we finally get a PS Experience in the east please. Like NYC

    mixedkidbx said:

    September 27th, 5:14 pm

    Right…. but this being the 3rd year and all 3 have been in the west coast, i dont see PlayStation ever changing.

mixedkidbx said:

September 27th, 5:08 pm

Oh look! Another WEST COAST event! I guess it too much hassel for you to go 3 hours into the future and have it on the east coast. Ugh…

    jefXfree said:

    September 27th, 7:10 pm

    When a majority of those staffing the event, paid by Sony, are located on the west coast they’re going to save money where possible.

    I understand your frustration, but it makes financial sense for Sony to keep it on the West Coast.

krae_man said:

September 27th, 5:10 pm

Are you going to offer discount hotels this year?

    Sid Shuman said:

    September 29th, 2:27 pm

    Yep, sorry for the delay: http://arestravel.com/9078_hotel-list.html

    krae_man said:

    September 27th, 5:23 pm

    Never mind I see the confirmation page reads:

    “Reserve your hotel room today. Rooms will fill up quickly, so we encourage you to make your hotel reservations as soon as possible. Click here to reserve your room today!”

    And the event page doesn’t have hotel info on there yet. Sorry.

    jefXfree said:

    September 27th, 7:20 pm

    It’s also worth noting that this convention center is literally across the street from Disney, so you’re going to want to stay a little bit away from the convention center if you can… If you’re driving in.

    kudoshinchi said:

    September 28th, 6:20 am

    where you see the page about hotel info? I register and I don’t see it on my confirmation page

    krae_man said:

    September 28th, 7:39 am

    It was at the bottom of the confirmation email page. They may have removed it since.

    Spectrum said:

    September 30th, 9:02 am

    @jefXfree I’m stay right across the street at the Hilton, and I’m driving In. Will I be ok. Lol

elpecas said:

September 27th, 5:12 pm

Can’t wait! i went to the last two and they were amazing. hopefully i get to be first in line this year as well.

StingrayX said:

September 27th, 5:14 pm

Saweet! A little farther drive for me, but no biggie. I can’t wait!

chaindrive30 said:

September 27th, 5:14 pm

Booked, see you there!

D-Squad3 said:

September 27th, 5:16 pm

I can’t think of anything they can show that will blow my mind this year other than ND new game or Sucker Punch’s new game. Hopefully we’ll see more God of War as well but I doubt it.

PS_ihh said:

September 27th, 5:19 pm

Can´t attend since I live way too far, but I´ll be waiting for the pannels and streams schedule. Those are very cool.

Dead-Sync said:

September 27th, 5:22 pm

Nice! Although…it’s wishful thinking that PSX will ever come to the East Coast considering SIEA is HQ’ed out of San Mateo. I guess one year I gotta save up for a vacation in Cali and swing by during a PSX one year.

That said, in the meantime I’ll be checking it out via the interwebs from home this year. haha. Pretty excited to see what’s coming out of this event!


September 27th, 5:27 pm

Went to the one last year in San Francisco and had a great time. Will be going again this year.

ShadowStar83x said:

September 27th, 5:29 pm

The ticket isn’t expensive, but getting there is…well, always next year.

FearMonkey said:

September 27th, 5:29 pm

I guess Sony was listening to PS I Love You XOXO this morning and realized “OMG we forgot to tell people about this! Quick make a post on the PS Blog!” :p

    Xcaligamer1 said:

    September 27th, 5:45 pm

    Had to lol

    Surreal said:

    September 27th, 6:51 pm

    Was thinking the same thing lol.. Finally PSX is in my woods of the neck!! Hopefully we’ll see Colin & Greg there

Tjoeb123 said:

September 27th, 5:41 pm

Any chance you can work on moving the Experience eastward? Preferably in Atlanta? (not my city, but I do live in Georgia)

DuanCSusa said:

September 27th, 5:41 pm

It’s at my home! Must go this time lol

Crotin said:

September 27th, 5:47 pm

Registered, can’t wait!

Xcaligamer1 said:

September 27th, 5:47 pm

Whish it was closer. As said already…psx badge isn’t pricey but trip is.

NAMEK said:

September 27th, 5:48 pm

AWESOME! This will be my second year in a row, hope to make this an annual ritual. Do hope my fellow gamers in the East get some love too though.


    September 27th, 8:09 pm

    Yes, it will be awesome!

OvidiusPrime said:

September 27th, 5:53 pm

It was about time man! Definitely not missing this one! Thanks Sid, see you guys there!

Andy10003 said:

September 27th, 6:02 pm

Does the Saturday ticket include a seat at the press conference?

    quikblend said:

    September 27th, 6:06 pm

    As long as the press conference is during saturday (which is usually is) then yes.

    criperro said:

    September 27th, 7:09 pm

    If it’s going to be like last year, then it will be limited space. First in line, first in. The rest will watch from outside in screens.

    jefXfree said:

    September 27th, 7:12 pm

    Last year the opening conference was just in a first come first serve room… No special badge required.

Ethereal said:

September 27th, 6:24 pm

Closest it has been yet! I have been every year and this year will be no different. See you there!

ero619 said:

September 27th, 6:28 pm

So hyped for the Capcom Cup!

BariBaby said:

September 27th, 6:33 pm

how do we get media badges?

INeedIceCream said:

September 27th, 6:35 pm

I’m want to go never been but don’t know if my kids can go and if so price or if free to certain age does anybody know thanks

    TimCreed said:

    September 28th, 7:02 pm

    You must be at least 18 years old to attend.

drd7of14 said:

September 27th, 6:42 pm

I do have that the East Coast, like New York, can one day Experience the PS XP one day. It feels like all the events are always on the west coast or over seas.

We only sometimes get press releases, PS Meeting.

    You have PAX East… :)

YES!!!!! My favorite time of year!

zombie9 said:

September 27th, 6:55 pm

AH the Indy game SHOW. last year that was all they showed!! I do want to see some 4K though……

criperro said:

September 27th, 7:07 pm

Yes! Been waiting for this post since August, this will be my second PSX. I remember last year to be in the line at 4am

krae_man said:

September 27th, 7:30 pm

The confirmation emails still say pick up at Moscone West.

Disgorge44 said:

September 27th, 7:32 pm

Well, announced a month and a half later than last year. Assumed it wasn’t happening. Can’t afford a trip in 2 months…

verasan said:

September 27th, 8:03 pm

Did anybody could create an account to buy the tickets i was trying but i couldnt buy the tickets because i introduce differents pass works and the system didnt accept them.

can anybody help?

jab__661 said:

September 27th, 8:10 pm

Bought my tickets!

OC_KID said:

September 27th, 8:25 pm

Can I bring my little brother he’s 17?

jab__661 said:

September 27th, 8:41 pm

Keep it in the west coast, and I’ll go every year. :)

cowmamba said:

September 27th, 8:54 pm

How about some dang VITA! Come on Sony!

FordSoldier84 said:

September 27th, 9:12 pm

What exactly do you get with the early bird ticket???

xXPerson99Xx said:

September 27th, 9:24 pm

Hi Sony. My 17 year old wants to attend with me. If he’s old enough to buy an M rated game, why can he not attend PSX? If he can’t get in, I’m not flying out.

AizawaYuuichi said:

September 27th, 10:35 pm

I really hope this year isn’t as disappointing for me as last year. PSX Year 1 was a great show, but PSX Year 2 (ending with the double fail of Ninoonana 2 and Paragon) was a huge letdown.
They better finish with something big from first-party this time. Preferably Sucker Punch, as that’s the only studio I can really think of that we don’t know what they’re working on.

Sonic-Boom said:

September 27th, 10:39 pm

i already booked my ticket .
is there going to be a conference like past years ? just wondering and thank you very much

Shadowbhiemes said:

September 28th, 12:37 am

Why do we have to pickup badges at a seperate location? That’s really dumb. I’d buy a ticket otherwise

ccanfield1 said:

September 28th, 2:31 am

Oh man, I can’t wait ! I had such a great time the last 2 years at PSX. I especially enjoy having the chance to interact with people from the company and all the great Playstation fans. The last couple of years I had been especially excited to try out VR. Now that it will be out before this years event, I wonder what will be the thing I can’t wait to play ? Horizon Zero Dawn is my guess, for now, but hopefully it will be something unexpected that is announced at PSX.

rafael_martines said:

Plz Sony, ask Capcom to bring back Ingrid to Street Fighter V on Season 2 :) She was the poster girl of Capcom games on PSP *_*

Plz plz #IngridForSFV #RiseUp

NO_FEAR said:

September 28th, 4:09 am

… West Cost PlayStation Experience. Should we talk about the city lights at night map again, you know the one that show where most of your market base lives. The event is a fun weekend but it doesn’t justify anual round trip cost to cost air fare and hotel for the patrons or exibitors. This creates a situation of limitations and diminishing returns. Moving the event around other regions opens possibilities of unique experiences with local patrons and developers.

Your PSMVP.org community is here to help. Come by and let’s chat about this stuff.
