The Sony E3 2017 press conference will be broadcast in theaters across the United States, Canada, and Brazil. 2017 marks the fourth year in a row that Sony has chosen to show its press conference in cinemas.
Sony has today revealed that fans across the Americas will be able to get in on the company's E3 2017 experience, enjoying all of the announcements and surprises alongside other PlayStation fans. Almost 100 locations will be broadcasting the press conference live on Monday, June 12, from Alaska to the New York in the United States. In Canada, theaters in British Columbia, Manitoba, Ontario, Alberta, and Quebec will be showcasing the event, and in South America, Brazilian PlayStation fans will also be able to see the press conference in theaters, though locations have not been revealed yet.
Tickets are "100% free" and will be available at playstation.com/E3experience from Tuesday, May 30 at 10AM PT. However, Sony warns, "Attendees who have registered for a ticket will be seated on a first-come, first-served basis until the theater reaches capacity," but receiving a ticket "does not guarantee you a seat" which some have called disappointing. Demand for tickets is expected to be high, but those lucky enough to snag them will also bag themselves an exclusive poster, #76 from the PlayStation Collectable Card series, and "a digital gift basket chock-full of goodies from PlayStation Store."
While the prospect of watching the Sony press conference on a massive screen with friends and fellow fans is exciting enough, everyone else can get hyped over the big announcements and reveals. Days Gone will be at E3 in a "big way," but other first-party PS4 titles such as God of War, The Last of Us: Part Two, and even Knack 2 may make an appearance as well. Having drip-fed fans with information, Hideo Kojima's Death Stranding may also get a new trailer, or the creator may continue to torture fans by releasing another cryptic teaser.
More information about Destiny 2 (which has PlayStation exclusive DLC) is expected, along with more details about Call of Duty: WW2 (which will get DLC on PS4 before other platforms). These are all incredibly safe bets, but Sony seems to have done a good job of preventing leaks in the lead up to its event. So, there will also be plenty of surprises during the press conference, too.
Sony's E3 2017 press conference will be held at 6:00 p.m. PT on Monday, June 12.
