At PlayStation, we’re incredibly thankful of the service our troops provide each and every day. As a way to both honor and entertain our service men and women (We all need a bit of R&R sometimes!), we’re pleased to announce Salute To Our Troops, an upcoming event held in Kansas’ Fort Riley military base. Fort Riley has a huge gaming community — the base even has its own dedicated gaming area in their Warrior Zone recreation center.
In an effort to bring a taste of E3 to the troops, we’re kicking off the event on Monday, June 9th, which is the same day as our Press Conference. Our big PlayStation truck — currently travelling across the country for our Road to Greatness tour — will be on the base to offer hands-on time with upcoming PS4 games, and we’ll have contests and giveaways throughout. The event will culminate with a concert from country music singer Brett Eldredge. If you can’t attend but want to see the concert, it will be available for free on our Live Events Viewer app.
The event is both free and open to the public, so if you live nearby, feel free to come! And if you don’t live in the area, you can still get hands-on with upcoming PS4 games as part of our Road to Greatness tour. Check the schedule to see if we’ll be in a city near you.
And thanks again to all active and retired military personnel. We are honored by your sacrifice.
