Experience E3 LIVE From Your PS3 With Streaming Keynote, Virtual PlayStation Booth

With the E3 Expo just around the corner, the PlayStation Home team is happy to announce that you’ll be able to be part of the convention excitement — right from your PS3!

For the first time ever, PlayStation Home will host a live public video stream of the Sony E3 press conference on Monday, June 6 at 5pm Pacific Time in a special screening room. You can watch SCEA President and CEO Jack Tretton reveal all of the big E3 announcements and watch never-before-seen footage of tons of upcoming PS3 and NGP titles.

We’re also happy to confirm that the PlayStation Home E3 Virtual Booth is making a triumphant return! The virtual booth was visited by a lot of people last year (five times more people than physically attended E3 2010!), making it huge success for us and hopefully for you as well. If you visited the booth last year, you’ll remember that we enabled you to explore a virtual recreation of PlayStation’s E3 booth. Expect the same this year, with a few new surprises — including a 3D-rendered NGP to inspect from every angle.

PlayStation Home: E3 2010 virtual booth

Images taken from the E3 2010 virtual PlayStation booth; check back next Tuesday to see what’s awaiting you for 2011!

Be sure to visit the E3 Booth in Home at the start of the show on Tuesday, June 7 at 12pm Pacific Time and earn exclusive virtual items as you visit the different areas in the virtual E3 booth. Once you unlock all the virtual items, you’ll be able to check out Home content in the VIP area and play the first level of Scribble Shooter – an upcoming top-down, shoot-em up game featuring hand-drawn enemies that is being designed to look as if you’re playing on a notepad — as well as a Heavy Water package with active virtual items. Why spend money on a plane ticket to LA when you can attend E3 right from your PS3?

Additionally, the PlayStation.Blog team will be streaming live game demonstrations straight from the show floor into PlayStation Home, so you won’t miss a single beat of all the excitement of E3. They’ll be scouring the show for any exciting new titles to show off, and you can watch it all within PlayStation Home. LIVE!

We hope you come visit. See you, virtually, at E3!

  • nifty!

  • cant wait to find all the goodies! and play scribble shooter

  • Ya gotta relaunch the services first, right? ;)

  • just one more week

  • Hopefully new item freeze is fixed by then

  • Estranged on how that one God of War video looks like a movie of like Jarhead.

  • I suggested the Gamer’s Lounge should look like this years ago, (including real time leader boards across PSN ) along with an interactive Playstation history museum, instead of that bland waste of space that It has been. You know, it should be an actual game lounge.


    coool but i want the store in moment im with u sony 4 the E3 sony make believe ! i want a job in sony ! please sony give me a job

  • yeppy

  • Is there going to be a Playstation Blog up at E3 this year?

  • ahh, this is again.

  • Awesome, looking forward to this. Hopefully Sony emails me concerning the E3 passes :)

  • Is Sony’s E3 on Monday the 6th or Tuesday the 7th?

    • The press conference is at 5:00pm PT on Monday, June 6th. The virtual (and real-world) booth will open at 12:00pm PT on Tuesday, June 7th.

  • Virtual booth is worth a look but for watching the presentation I’ll stay right here on the blog.

  • Nice :) I actually remember someone asking for that on another post, so way to deliver guys :)

  • err… that should have been “meet up”… so we can meet all the wonderful people that work so hard to give us the blog.

  • Can’t wait!

  • Don’t care about PSN Home freebies any of that just want store back……………………………………………………………..

  • @16
    nah cuz sum ppl would just yell at the bloggers about the psn being down, when their not responsible for it anyway

  • This is nice. Can’t wait. I have a feeling that I may have trouble streaming since I don’t have a fast connection. Will it also be available as a download off the playstation store like previous E3s?

  • I sure hope it runs quicker then last year. Took FOREVER to load a video.

    • We’ve tested it extensively and it’s been performing very well. You should see a dramatic increase in performance this year.

  • Very cool Thanks!

  • tres cool!

  • Please clear us this:

    NGP – PSP2 – Vita ????????

    also what about the rumor that you are nerfing the PSP2????


  • Get this to stream to ps3 without the need of home and youll be rocking. Home has so many bugs it makes me uneasy about trying to watch it there

  • FREAKING SWEET!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!AHHHHHHHHHHHHH TOO MUCH GOODIES!!!!!!!!!!

  • Is there a way to watch it outside PS Home? Like in some kind of streaming video from the PS Store?


  • lostinplainsight

    can i still watch it on g4?

  • LOL KILLZONE on the GOW screen, was that image simulated?

  • Is it the same set up from last year?

  • Excellent! Last year’s booth was very cool, and this sounds even better. I’m looking forward to this!

  • Dear Sony,

    I am one of the people who won your trip to E3 2011 from the PlayStation Rewards Beta. Can someone please send me a ticket for the Press Event. I’m already scheduled to land in LA with plenty of time to get there.

    Thanks, For the trip & see you on the west coast

  • @26 it is streaming here on the blog!

  • Cool! I’ll be watching the stream here on the blog and then playing inFAMOUS 2 the day after, so I’ll have to check out the space at some other point.

  • It would be awesome if Games Demoed at E3 could be downloaded on PSN.
    That’s the only thing that could make this better.

  • 30 I’m so jealous

  • Sony coming back with a vengeance! Looking forward to tour the virtual E3 Booth!

  • Why cant you make it possible to be able to just watch the press conference right from the PS3 XMB? If you can stream live to the blog and into PS Home, why cant you just make it possible to stream right on the PS3 thru the XMB?

  • just awesome!!!!

  • LovesJapanManga

    Will you allow us to earn what we missed from last year?- I am referring to exclusive virtual items from E3 2010? I mean I’d like to earn them along with this year’s E3 2011? Please say yes… Please? Please? Thanx.

    Oh by the way, when will we hear more about “new” updates on PS HOME? This week or next week? Will you make the list of announcement regarding which free items you will be handing out for limited time? Thanx.

    • Sorry, we won’t be bringing back last year’s rewards. However, I think you’ll find this year’s rewards to be bigger, better, and badder than before ;)

    • And, yes, we will be providing more details regarding the Home portion of the Welcome Back package very soon.

  • Hey SONY if there are any left over prototype gadgets or discs or even a cardboard cutout of anything Playstation related, can I have it please? :)

  • Now this is what Home should of always been. Great job guys. :-]

  • Sadly, this is probably gonna be a joke this year. I don’t even own an Xbox right now and i’m more interested in MS after this PSN disaster that can’t even support cross game chat.

  • Guess i’ll d/l Home again and check it out lol

  • sony ur best u may my day. Thanks so much and keep up the great work i love u guys.

  • It would be cool to see some sorta behind the scenes stuff incorporated into the home game specific rooms through either puppet style enactments i’m thinking of like fallout 3 vault tour in the museum or like bioshock 2 when the puppet people act out stuff or plain ole video

  • Sounds cool! Thank you Sony!

  • Cool….This can be fun

  • NGP Model.. I can’t wait!

    Similar “game” like last year?

    Try telling us what is confirmed (we can expect) in an update! But only what you can!
    Twisted Metal, Uncharted 3, Last Guardian?
