This weekend Sony is putting on the PlayStation Experience, a community based event that will reveal new game trailers, as well as details on recent games and discussions with developers. The event takes place December 6-7 in Las Vegas at the Sans Expo and Convention Center. Those that will not be able to attend the event can still live stream it for no charge, schedule and trailer below.
The PlayStation Experience kicks off Saturday with the keynote at 10:00 am and goes all day until the closing event at 9:00 pm, which is none other than a demonstration of the eagerly awaited No Man’s Sky. Apparently the keynote is going to be big, although specifics have not been released yet. The event gives Sony an opportunity to show off all kinds of information with fans as well as entirely new announcements. The community event takes place over 400,000 square feet of video games and will play host to more than 110 independent developers. One-day passes cost $55.50 and two-day passes cost $95.50.
Sony has been so excited about the event they have not only been making short videos, they have also been encouraging game developers coming to do the same. Yoshinori Ono from Capcom released a video where he stated how excited he was to be apart of the event, Iron Galaxy Studioes Dave Lang did the same and Josh Mosqueira of Blizzard was noted as attending as well. Tim Schaffer put a video on his twitter about the event, but it was quickly changed to private. Even Atlus has announced that they will be revealing new trailers for games to be released in the future.Those attending will have tons of panels and games to play, plus, both days of the event will also feature Ultra Street Fighter IV tournaments.
The schedule clearly has listed many of the events, such as gameplay from Amplitude, No Man’s Sky, Grim Fandango Remastered, and the upcoming expansion for Destiny, The Dark Below. Who can say what trailers will be revealed? Rumor has it that Capcom might officially show off a trailer for the next Street Fighter game, Street Fighter V.

The PlayStation Experience is coming in after a very memorable day in the history of Sony. December 3 marks the 20th anniversary of the original PlayStation. As a result many individuals on social platforms have been making use of the hash tag, #20YearsofGaming. The PlayStation held classics like Crash Bandicoot and Spyro, which were the first games some gamers got their hands on. Regardless, the system has many games that people still look back and smile at, whether it be due to the game itself, or the atmosphere that surrounded the event. The PlayStation Experience is proud of such memories and wishes to continue moving forward with gamers all over the globe. Depending on how well the event goes, Sony may decide that every December deserves game coverage and transform The PlayStation Experience into an annual event.
