The Moscone West Convention Center in San Francisco, CA will fill up with fans this Saturday, December 5th and Sunday, December 6th with gaming fans for the PlayStation Experience 2015. It will kick off with a special keynote presentation by Sony starting at 10 am PST/1 pm EST/6 pm GMT. Live streaming will be available on Twitch, YouTube and live.PlayStation.com.
"New announcements from the world of PlayStation" will be given- including the announcement of new games and also updates on games already out there, according to PlayStation Lifestyle. Seating space is limited in the keynote auditorium. The PlayStation blog suggests in his complete guide of the PlayStation Experience conference that seating space in the auditorium is limited, and fans should plan to show up bright and early- long before the doors to the keynote speech open at 8 a.m.
After the keynote, livestream viewing of the PlayStation LiveCast will be available on Saturday from 12 pm to 9 pm PST and again on Sunday from 10 am to 4 pm PST on Twitch, YouTube, and PlayStation.com. The LiveCast will provide game demos, interviews, developer panels and other things in case one is unable to attend the event. Anthony Carboni and Meredith Molinari will be joining the LiveCast.
Those who are able to attend(and tickets are still available) in person, more than 100 games can be played on the show floor, and fans will be able to experience PlayStation VR for themselves. Members of the World Wide Studios community team will join and conduct some interactive activities and gameplay sessions in between live segments.
A handy tool for those attending the conference is the Experience PlayStation App. It is available now for free on iOS and Android devices. This app offers a lot of handy features like a trackable program guide that details all of the booths and activities and PlayStation Experience. The user can RSVP for PlayStation VR demos on it. There are exclusive PSN voucher codes and rewards that can be unlocked by checking in at various places throughout PlayStation Experience as long as you have your PSN ID. There will also be a list of PlayStation.Blog articles coming out of PlayStation Experience, and an interactive map of Moscone West to make the convention more easily accessible.
Panels that will take place on Saturday on the 3rd floor of the Moscone West building include PlayStation VR and The Future of Play, Uncharted 4:Stories from the Performance Capture Set, Call of Duty Black Ops 3:Unlocking the Potential of A.I., PS I Love You XOXO, The Future of Storytelling, and Fighting Games:The Next Generation.
