Sony Will Stream Gamescom Presentation In Home

Watch this space.

Sony have let it be known that they will be streaming the entire Gamescom presentation live in PlayStation Home. The return of the Gamescom space will mean that Home-goers will get to enter the area and watch Sony’s European presentation live, as it happens.


The space will be available from the Home Navigator and the What’s New area on the XMB from 5PM, Central European Time (4PM, UK time) on August 16th. The live show starts streaming from 7PM CET (6PM, UK time) onwards and will loop every hour from them onwards, for those that missed it.

They’ve also promised video edits later on for people who just want to catch the highlights.

  1. I’ll just have to cancel my anniversary for this then. Aha, just joking but I am a bit disappointed that I won’t get to see what this will be like. I heard the E3 one didn’t go very well but I never tried myself so couldn’t tell. Enjoy :)

    • Sad Times.
      But still, at least you get anniversaries, haha. :P
      But then again, there’s always the loop (Sony were prepared for busy people like you).

  2. You know watching live would be nice, but whats the chance of it being mostly shooters again like with E3.

    I think I’d go for the highlights, hope there’s new Rayman footage.

  3. Hope it works better than the E3 live streaming in Home did – a group of us got together ready to discuss whilst sat in a theatre and nothing happened. Ended up watching on the PS blog.

    At least it’s not on at stupid o’clock like E3.

    • Worth having a nosey, if it’s smooth i’ll probably stay (stay, it’s a virtual space lol.) Same happened to me with e3, ended up watching it between here & the blog.

    • Times listed in article(sociable ones.)

      • opps sorry manky. misread your comment as “At least *if it’s not.” There i go again cluttering the place up.
        (insert blushing face.)

  4. Someone remind me on the night. I may well pop in and see what it’s like. Great news, though.

  5. Arghh… all the good stuff happen when I don’t have my PS3… missed the Uncharted 3 beta…

  6. The problem with replays is that if there I a big shocking announcement at the end, there’ll always be the idiots going around spoiling it.

  7. nuke errr I mean mute the spoilers option in home please

  8. I still won’t log into Home.

  9. Yep I posted this in the news thread. Odd. Home doesn’t normally make the front page. What about the weekly updates? The rather cool new mini games? How good the Audi mini game has become. The current competition to win a personal space? Ah well I’ll be there.
