Hello hello! Hard to believe, but PlayStation Experience 2017 is right around the corner – starting with Friday night’s PlayStation Presents. Gulp!
Speaking of PlayStation Presents! The show will commence at 8:00pm Pacific Time Friday, December 8. If you’ve got an Early Bird ticket, you’ll be able to join us on-site in Anaheim, California.
Though PlayStation’s biggest 2017 announcements were revealed at E3 and Paris Games Week, we’ve saved a few stocking stuffers for Friday night. Expect to listen in on candid discussions with some of PlayStation’s top developers, get updates on key titles, and be a part of some special announcements. Even Kinda Funny’s Greg Miller is dropping by!
If you can’t join in on the fun in person, you’ll be able to watch the show at live.playstation.com and earn rewards, or stream on Twitch, YouTube, and Facebook starting at 8:00pm Pacific Time Friday night.
Then, on Saturday AM at 10:00am, PlayStation Experience will kick off proper. And boy oh boy it’s set to be something special. But we’ll share more details about what’s in store soon.

3:30pm Saturday, December 9
It’s been a month since we announced our newest title, Ghost of Tsushima. Here at Sucker Punch, we’ve watched so many reaction videos and read many of your comments with smiles on our faces, so we thought PSX was a great opportunity to share a little more with you all.
Join us on Saturday at 3:30pm as Nate Fox (Creative Director), Jason Connell (Creative/Art Director), Billy Harper (Animation Director), Ryuhei Katami (Associate Producer, Sony Interactive Entertainment) and moderator Brian Altano (IGN) discuss how we approached making the debut trailer and what inspired us to make this game. We’ll share epic concept art that’s driving the tone and visuals for the game, and share a little about our reference trips to Japan and working with new team members that are helping make Ghost of Tsushima even better. Also be sure to stop by our signing session after the panel and come say hi. Stay tuned for more info on time and location.
