Sony has changed the time of its main presentation at the upcoming PlayStation Experience, and is saying it shouldn’t be referred to as a keynote.
Previous PSX showcases took place on a Saturday morning, often attracting big queues for those hoping to attend. Next month’s event, however, has shifted the ‘special presentation’ to Friday night. – which is actually just one night after The Game Awards.
“On Friday night, we’ll have a special presentation with opening remarks, special guests and game updates to talk about,” SIEA social media director Sid Shuman said on the PlayStation Blog. “We’re not calling it a Showcase given that we’re coming a few weeks off of Paris Games Week, but we’ll have some cool content to share.”
The fourth annual PlayStation Experience event with take place at California’s Anaheim Convention Center on December 9th and 10th. PlayStation Worldwide Studios chairman Shawn Layden will at the presentation “provide an update to attendees… meet some special guests [with] with a few surprises and game updates”.
This year’s show will be physically about 50 per cent larger than in 2016.
Added Shuman: “In addition to hands-on gameplay with the next wave of PS4 and PS VR games, attendees will dive deeper into some of PlayStation’s biggest games by means of immersive interactive experiences that blend the world of game and reality. I’m dying to say more… but it’s a bit too soon to share details. Stay tuned!
“In addition, we’ll be featuring a new slate of panels that reveal more developer insights into some of the biggest announcements coming out of Paris Games Week and beyond. We’re still finalizing the full list of participating developers, but you can count on some of Worldwide Studios’ biggest and brightest making an appearance, including Sucker Punch Productions, Media Molecule, and more.”
