PlayStation Blog To Livestream E3 Conference

We were just chatting, you know, whether to go to the extremes of setting up a livestream here on TSA for the big conferences so you can witness our wit and charm alongside the big announcements as they happen.

But it seems that, for the Sony conference, that might be a bit of a waste of time, as the official Blog will be – for the first time ever – livestreaming the thing direct, in video form.

“You’ve been requesting it,” says our Jeff, “so for the first time, we’ll be broadcasting the entirety of the PlayStation press conference directly into this Blog.” It’s a nice gesture, watching from the comfort of your own home with a beer is actually probably not a bad idea.

“Additionally, we’re setting up a mini-studio in the PlayStation booth,” says the blog, “and we’ll be bringing in developers while the show floor is open for interviews, live demos and to answer your questions via a built-in chat module.”

Sounds pretty groovy – we’ll be there at the show, so if we get the chance to give a cheeky grin at the back window, lips pursed and tongue drooling, we’ll tweet first so you can get the chance to check out the stream in plenty of notice.

Ahem.

  1. What about the store????!

    … :D

    Nah seriously though, good move by Sony, so you don’t have to scour the net for a working laggy stream.

    • Crap I just realized it’s pretty late >_> 02:00 CET, which is 01:00 BST on June 7th.

  2. it might be replayed in [email protected] too…

    • Hope so, only way I’ll be seeing it.

  3. I will actually watch E3 this year. I think some of members were talking about watching this together over skype. I am surpised that there is no plans for it to be streamed in Home. I wonder who is getting sent over there this year?

  4. Watched it live on Youtube last year and that was surprisingly stable. I’ll probably go there again this year considering how well it ran last year, but the Blog will be my plan B.

    • I also watched it, problem is I may watch it but I go back to college on Tuesday 7th, conference day.

    • I didn’t realise YouTube was streaming it last year, I may look into that if the blog is overwhelmed. Or just wait until the morning by which time it’ll hopefully have been edited and uploaded somewhere anyhow.

  5. I’m really looking forward to E3.

  6. Sweet! Looking forward it!

  7. Guess we know when the next DDoS is probably going to happen, then…

    • Well, I can’t see the blog coping under the strain regardless. Although Sony of all people should manage to stream in it decent quality.

  8. However it will be at some ungodly hour in the middle of the night for me in the UK? yes? Anyone have specifics btw? I would watch it, but if it’s 3-4 in the morning there is no chance..

  9. That is very cool, can’t wait. Also looking forward to TSA’s reports.

  10. nice looking forward to it last year was a nightmare trying to get the streams to work.

    • Agree :)
      I seem to have that trouble every year :P
