Sony dropped the word on Sunday that for the first time ever, the PlayStation Blog would be streaming Sony’s E3 press conference this year. Now, just a couple of short days later, they’ve announced that there will be another, possibly more convenient way, to watch the conference for you PS3 owners. PlayStation Home is going to have a dedicated ‘special screening room’ where you’ll be able to watch a live stream of the conference with your fellow Home users.
If memory serves, E3’s conference from last year was watchable via Home but only after the conference had ended. This year marks the first time you’ll be able to watch it live inside Home.
At the same time, Sony also announced that the hugely successful virtual E3 booth that gamers could access via Home last year, is also returning for 2011. Just like last year’s version, the booth is slated to be an accurate recreation of Sony’s layout on the E3 floor.
By visiting the virtual E3 booth and watching the conference, you’ll be able to earn exclusive digital items for your Home space and avatar, play demos that aren’t available anywhere else outside of E3 and have a look at a 3D-rendered NGP.
Pretty spiffy, eh?
