There Will Be Much To Take In At The PlayStation Experience 2015 This Weekend

Sony has revealed the full list of what to expect at PlayStation Experience 2015 this weekend in San Francisco, and whether you are able to attend or have to watch from afar, Sony has plenty for you to take in at the event.

The Playstation Experience Keynote will kick off the weekend at 10am PT on Saturday, December 5. For those hoping to attend in person, the auditorium will open at 8am, but Sony suggested lining up sooner than that as space will be limited. For everyone not in attendance, the keynote presentation will be broadcast live on Twitch, and Sony suggested sticking around after it concludes. The company has over 30 live game demos and developer interviews planned throughout the weekend, in addition to a handful of panels to take in on Saturday afternoon.

If you will be attending Playstation Experience 2015, you’ll want to be sure to get the Experience Playstation App, which is available for iOS and Android devices. Sony said the app features a trackable program guide with details of all the booths and activities found at the event and an interactive map of the venue so you don’t get lost. The app can also be used to RSVP for Playstation VR demos, of which there are quite a few.

Sony revealed the list of “currently announced” playable Playstation VR titles on the show floor, insinuating that there could be some further reveals this weekend with playable demos at the event. So far, we know there will be at least 15 titles to try during Playstation Experience 2015.

There’s far more than just PSVR games being shown off during PlayStation Experience this year, though. Sony revealed that there will be over 130 playable titles for fans to explore.

On Sunday, starting at 10am sharp, the Capcom Cup 2015 Street Fighter world championship will kick off and run throughout the day. At the end of it all, the world will have a new Street Fighter champion, and that talented player will take home $120,000. Sony said this is “an event everyone should experience at least once in their lives.”

Sony will be broadcasting Playstation Experience 2015 on Twitch and live.playstation.com throughout the weekend. The keynote starts at 10am on Saturday, and the official event stream is scheduled for noon and will run until 9pm. Sunday’s broadcast resumes at 10am Sunday and wraps up at 4pm that evening.

    Considering just how lacklustre the gaming on the PS4 has been with exclusive content and features I'm disappointed that so much money and effort has been poured into this pseudo VR....fad.

    let's wait for 2016 before we start making these type of comments. we'll get a much better view of how VR truly works when we have the final hardware and a few good games.

    There's nothing pseudo about the virtual reality technologies about to hit the market. These are the real deal, and having had the chance to try PSVR I can tell you this isn't some half baked attempt. In many ways Playstation VR is ahead of Oculus and HTC with its headset, especially when it comes to proper games.

    I do not believe for a second that VR will amount to a fad. The technology is here to stay from here on out. VR and probably even more so, AR, will have huge impacts on our lives in the coming years. This is just phase one. It's not going away any time soon.

    I applaud Sony for really addressing the concern of how you share the experience with others. Then again, VR for couch-sitting console players should be pouring money into this direction of gameplay.

    I agree. The first step is telling the general public that its cool and perfectly normal to be interested in and wearing VR gear. We're already seeing this popping up in completely unrelated advertisements. The real turn for the gaming industry was when it became socially acceptable to play video games. These stereotypes vary by region, of course, so ymmv. You have to tell people what's good, or cool, etc, and we'll see a lot more of that soon.

    We'll see. Sony has provided the canvas. Now they just need to get out of the way and let developers see what they can do. Just depends on if developers step up to the plate.
