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.

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.
