5/31 Update — Some changes and updates on ticket and seat availability:

  • Ticket registration will open today, Wednesday 5/31/17, at 1:30PM PT.
  • There was a brief system test last night which allowed a small number of tickets to be claimed. As of this morning there are still plenty of tickets remaining at each theater.
  • If you received a ticket confirmation email you are guaranteed a seat at the event if you present your valid ticket at least 30 minutes before show time.
  • We will be admitting those without tickets on a first-come first-served basis after all present ticket holders are seated.


E3 is almost here and I’m excited to announce that the PlayStation E3 Experience is returning for 2017! Join us on Monday, June 12th in over 85 theaters across the United States, Canada, and Latin America.

This is the fourth year we’re broadcasting our E3 Press Conference live to theaters across North America and I can’t wait to bring the excitement of E3 straight to you. Watching the announcements and news alongside other members of the PlayStation community is an experience like no other.

Attendees will take home an exclusive poster and #76 from the PlayStation Collectable Card series. This will be the only way to get your hands on these, so don’t miss out! Want more than just limited edition swag? We’ve got you covered — everyone will also get a digital gift basket chock-full of goodies from PlayStation Store.

  • You haven’t created the Canadian version of the site yet. That link redirects to the 2016 page for Canadians.

    Doesn’t look like the 2017 page exists on en-ca yet.

    • The canadian 2017 page is up now.

    • iamtylerdurden1

      Last yr was an incredible experience in Hamilton NJ and i anticipate the same this yr.

      2016

      God of War
      Days Gone
      Spiderman

      2017

      Sucker Punch new IP
      Bloodborne 2 or “Phantom Wail”
      Sony Santa Monica AAA VR game

    • Gotta love when every Platstation fans get online and crashes a website every year. . .

      #gofobo2017 #RIP

    • Gofobo site link isn’t working in the US.

    • WHY CHOOSE GOFOBO?! SITE IS DOWN IN U.S.

    • To the Tyler Durden guy/girl – I was also at the Hamilton viewing and it was indeed incredible. I will hopefully be there this year pending this site working properly.

    • Lauren-Senpai

      This will be my first year attending PS Experience at Hamilton, NJ. Granted…. if the site loads properly. Hopefully, it will be fixed soon.

    • HIS616infernal

      The fact that i may miss this year after going to the previous 3 is unfortunate ! Every year you guys have issues with how you deal out tickets and it never seems to get fixed. I hope i can manage to find someone to actually get me a pair today while im at work.

    • All that talk about voiding ALL tickets is rubbish. I was here since the start (1pm to 11:35pm) and I got the tickets fair and square just like the earlier people. We ALL had the same rng doing this, and dealt with the same issues. You want to take that away because people on reddit got in too? It’s not a good situation but come on that wouldn’t be the right way to go either.

    • HIS616infernal

      Thank you Sony for not allowing me to get tickets ! Thank you for ruining my streak thank you for using a half backwards system that claims I’m not of age to receive tickets I’m friggen 29 really… Dropping the ball yet again i had two tickets in my hand and the damn site errors out and asks for a code …. Oh geese thanks

  • What about the UK?

    • @bradleykit – What ABOUT the UK? It’s 2:00am there at the time of the conference.

    • E3 is a North America focused event; just like GamesCom in Germany is European focused and Tokyo Game Show is Japanese focused.

      Hence, why this theatre experience is for North America.

      Well, that and what Vocor_Kane said; timezones.

  • SephyRocks88

    Yes, I’m happy to see my hometown added again and I will definitely go this year again! Question though, in the past a single person was able to purchase at least 2 tickets. For this time around, do both individuals need a Gofobo account or should each person register and obtain their own ticket? Many thanks!

    • Tiane Bella
      Tiane Bella

      You will be able to register for two tickets with a single Gofobo account.

  • As always Georgia gets only 1 venue……

    • Yeah, I can’t afford to drive 3+ hours to Atlanta just for this.

      Now if they had more venues closer towards Savannah, I’d be happy.

    • Sorceressvampire

      Can you please reply back to me how much are the tickets and can my brother take his two daughters his youngest one is gamer ?

  • DragonSpear2462

    You mention that tickets are limited, but then you also mention that getting a ticket doesn’t guarantee you a seat? Why not just limit the amount of ticket sold until max capacity?

    • In previous years of these events, they had a line for ticket holders and a separate line for people that couldn’t get tickets. After like 15 minutes, they started letting people in from the wait line in order to fill seats. In case people ordered tickets and didn’t attend. It gives dedicated fans that couldn’t get tickets for whatever reason a second chance at attending.

    • DragonSpear2462

      Yeah, but I find it unfair that even though we order our tickets first, we won’t be guaranteed a seat.

    • DragonSpear2462

      I know previous years they have guaranteed seats tickets and then they make you get waiting list tickets. That would be more fair.

    • If you get a ticket and are there on time, you get a seat. You only lose your seat if you’re late. Completely fair considering the tickets are free.

    • iamtylerdurden1

      Exactly, u are guaranteed a seat if u order a ticket and are at the event on time. If they reserved every seat for a ticket holder and those ppl never showed then ppl who couldn’t get a ticket who showed up to the theater would get screwed and the theater wouldn’t be full. If u were concerned enough to get a ticket, which is actually not easy, then u should be concerned enough to get there on time.

    • DragonSpear2462

      Are you guys sure? When I read it, it seems like they are saying that you also have to get in line early to make sure you can get in even though you got your tickets early….

  • I’m glad you guys are coming to Canada. But please come to Ottawa also next year. If the main factor behind the selection of cities is population, don’t forget to also include Gatineau’s population with Ottawa’s, as the cities are only separated by a river.

    • I second this. Please include Ottawa next year!

    • KaiserWilhelm

      I third this. Please consider Ottawa, lots of demand here. Larger population than some of the other Canadian cities listed

    • I’d also like to add my support for Ottawa!

  • TheCraZyCloWn

    Can we still get 2 tickets per account or must we create two seperate accounts on Gofobo?

  • Damn nearest theater is 35mins away, I’ll still do it just to meet people and see E3.

    • thanextjordan

      I live in Arkansas and the closest theater to me is 2 hours and 38 minutes away. So I’m pretty bummed. It sucks to be in a part of the country that no company ever thinks is important enough to reach out to.

    • That’s cute, the closest theater on this list to me is about 6 hours away.

  • Hey PlayStation, Have you checked a world map lately? There’s a lot more countries than Brazil in Latin America.

    • iamtylerdurden1

      Are u kidding? This costs Sony a lot of money, it’s a free event with free gifts. We’re lucky they are doing any theaters and that they aren’t just New York, LA, and Chicago. The fact there are any theaters in South America is awesome.

      Canada has 5 theaters, California has 6, Florida has 4. Heck, even Alabama, Virginia, Colorado, Ohio, Washington, Arizona all have multiple theaters. There are upwards of 100 theaters, which is amazing. I doubt Microsoft would ever do something like this, and if they did they would not put theaters in Topeka Kansas City or Newington New Hampshire.

      I’ll be going for the third year. Buffalo NY, Hamilton NJ, and this year Hamilton NJ again. Last year in Hamilton was THE best experience i have ever had in a theater. Sony’s E3 was megaton after megaton and the place was electric with everyone collectively erupting when things like God of War and Spiderman were announced. Those two games brought the house down. Ty Sony, for treating fans to this awesome experience.

  • EmperorKorea

    “Receiving a ticket does not guarantee you a seat.”

    What…

  • I can’t wait this will be my 4th time going to the PlayStation E3 Movie Theater Experience thanks Sony Interactive Entertainment (^_^)

    • SOMARvelous1

      they’ve only done it 3 times… this will be their third year lol.. where did you go for the fourth?

  • I love that Winnipeg is getting it again. :D But I’d still rather stay home and livestream it haha.

    • Exist2Inspire02

      I was a bit worried that they’d be skipping over Winnipeg this year (despite having a showing last year) since a lot of events love skipping us. But I was super happy to see that they’re coming back this year!

    • Yeah for sure! I was hoping to come across another Winnipegger here! ;)

  • Dionysus-Jones

    Soooooo… No VR support for the keynote again this year?

    Sony was the first to talk about non-gaming experiences on VR, and aside from interactive music videos & YouTube, PSVR owners aren’t seeing much in this category. Geoff Keighley managed to organize VR support for The Game Awards, so I’m not sure what the roadblock is; there are third party companies that specialize in setting up public events for VR support.

  • CrimsonDream24

    I would LOVE to take part in this but my province doesn’t seem to be listed. I’m guessing there just isn’t enough demand for Nova Scotia, Canada? It’s a shame, but understandable.

  • Awesome! This will be my fourth year in a row attending the Union Square NYC theater for E3. Had a feeling this would be announced last minute. haha

  • It’s hard to imagine this E3 showcase topping the last two years, but I hope it blows us away yet again :-)

  • morris_family

    I love these things. However, traveling 4 hours (8 hours round trip) to get there is a bit absurd, We need to get Fathom Events to add Spokane WA to the list. There’s a untapped market when there’s 3 major colleges here and we all know students like to game too.

  • Actually Tiane, this will be the 4th consecutive year you guys have hosted this event in a theater. :)

    I’m so excited! I look forward to this every single year! Can’t wait!

  • Serial_Killa94

    Death stranding

  • Crazymanwalking1

    I have waiting what seems like an eternity for more info on this years event, kinda late compared to other years

    If I get in this will be my 3rd time attending, hopefully I get to see my friends from last year again

    Cant wait for june 12th! (fingers crossed for BB 2)

  • I’m excited to attend again this year. I’m wondering if it’s better to create a Gofobo account right now, instead of waiting until tomorrow morning. I do want to get timed out attempting to register. But, the theater I went to last year had several vacant spots, even after the wait list was fulfilled. I’m confident I’ll get in again. Should be fun.

  • Wondering why redirect Latin America people to the Brazil blog rather than the Latam one, mmmh…

  • Zealous-Champion

    Do we have to create two goforbo accounts to register for two tickets. The last couple of years it’s been easy to bring a plus one, will that change this time around?

    • Tiane Bella
      Tiane Bella

      You’ll still be able to register for two tickets with one account.

  • UghRochester

    FeelsBadMan They took away Robinson Twp in Pittsburgh. That was the theater for the past 3 years, why the change? Man, now I won’t be able to go.

  • Dam I live in CT and its been at Waterbury every year. That was like a 40 min drive for me which isnt bad. But now its in bloomfield which would be like 1hr 20 mins at least. So idk if i would be willing to go or not.

  • mustplaygames

    Please come to Cleveland!!

  • I have gone every year and it’s been a blast. Can’t wait to go again. The very first year gave out Destiny alpha codes, so I’m pulling for Destiny 2 alpha codes at this event.

  • AizawaYuuichi

    Okay, good, it’s not just me. I was pretty sure they’d already done this three years in a row, so this will be my fourth time going (as long as I can get tickets again). Kind of annoying that they keep waiting closer and closer to E3 every year to announce/make the tickets available. Also annoying that they’re using a different site that requires a bunch of personal info just to register in order to get the tickets. I can guarantee I’ll never use this site, gofobo, again after this event. Whatever…

  • Zikesokone1

    Nice to see MIA Miami back again keep it up next year same sunset theater had a lot of homestead people come so if you can add one there

  • NeutralChaos

    Question!

    In years past we had to go to the “Playstation E3 Experience” page, pick a theater, give the needed information, and wait for e-mail conformation.

    Why is it we need this “Gofobo account” now compared to how it was done before?

  • UberCactuar

    Not a fan of Gofobo! Eventgrid worked just fine despite the site crashing, for the past few years. I can’t expect this site will handle any better under the weight of potentially hundreds of thousands of people trying to get tickets, considering it’s outright malicious ads littered all around, and generally low quality otherwise.

    All the same, excited to go, hopefully I get there early enough to get a seat. Been there for the 2015 and 2016 shows so far, let’s make it a threepeat!

  • goddessbunny42

    Sweet… Totally looking feed to attending the Sony Presser in Lansing, MI for a second year in a row. :)

  • New handheld please

  • Thanks for the update Tiane! Can’t wait to see what Sony has to show off this year for E3. This will be my third time me and my friends are going to the event.

  • jairtheshadow

    This is a bit sad because me and a bunch of friends got there on time last year but there was this mean old guard stopping us from getting on the main ticket line and had us on the waiting line for an hour..we got in but had bad seats..not to mention there was an older lady screaming at us to get on the back of the line :\

  • SagittariusX159

    can anyone attend any location or is it a resident of that state exclusive?

  • No news for UK showings?
    Like a lot of Uk gamers, I’ve had every single playstation console from time. Still got them aside from the PSOne.
    I recall a time when My PS3 conked out for some reason. Sony collected from my house and gave me a replacement. Same with my PSP.
    How times have changed.

    • @TheSil – Of course there’s no UK showings. The time of the press conference is 2:00am in the UK.

    • @SagittariusX159 – The only requirement is that you have a valid form of ID to prove you’re 17+. You don’t need to be from that state.

    • E3 is a North American focused event.

  • Hmm I don’t see Grand Rapids MI posted, which is where I have gone in the past. Is this list final and complete?

    • goddessbunny42

      I was surprised to see in my hometown and NOT drive to GR last year. Maybe they may add GR, but it’s likely that they chose the Capital City because we’re in the center of the state (and I feel sry for those in PlayStation Nation in the UP or further upstate).

  • strangephish

    Why no love for VT, nearest theater is 2+ hrs away. Can any previous attendees let me know if the digital gift basket would be worth the 2+ hr trip

    • I would certainly go for the experience to see all of the announcements with like minded PlayStation fans. The digital goodies are usually things like Beta access for an upcoming game (possibly Alpha access for Destiny 2 this year), a theme, and $5 or $10 in PSN cash.

  • Maelstorm1226

    I would love to go to this, but the closet theater to me is an hour and a half away. I’ll just watch E3 from the comfort of my home. Oh well, maybe next year!!

  • Danny_J_420

    My wife and I LOVE PlayStation and we’ll be checking this out at the Rockville, MD location. Wouldn’t mind seeing a 2nd option for your MD fan base, but no biggie.

    Question, can minors come if accompanied by an adult? We want to bring our kid but don’t really see anything clarifying this.

    • @Danny_J_420 – Nope. Kids are not allowed (thank God).

      “Must be 17 years of age or older to attend this event. A valid form of ID proving age will be required to enter.”

  • @Tiane Bella – This is actually the fourth year, not the third. I would know since I’ve been to all of them.

  • Wheres the theater info for brazil?
    There’s nothing on Brazilian blog site yet.

  • This might be a little off the subject, but I remember back in the good ol’ days you could download all of Sony’s E3s on the PS3 and watch at your leisure. I wish that option was available again.

  • It’s 11:27am I have my Gofobo account. registered.
    Your we blink still says Available 5/30/2017 10:00AM.
    https://www.playstation.com/en-us/campaigns/2017/e3experience/

    Can’t to access to get a ticket.

    thanks

  • How do I register for tickets?

  • Is the link up yet?

    • link is not up at this time, I’m just hitting the page refresh and not seeing anything.

  • tickets up yet?

  • Not yet. And the gofobo site just crashed.

  • Nothing yet sadly
