How to watch the PlayStation Experience 2015 livestream this weekend

Tune in for game announcements and updates live from San Francisco

This Saturday, 5th December, our colleagues at SCEA are hosting the second PlayStation Experience event, this year at San Francisco’s Moscone Centre. Obviously that’s a long way to travel – so fear not, we’ll be livestreaming the keynote address in full, for your enjoyment.

You can watch the feed live on Twitch or on YouTube from 6.00pm GMT/7.00pm CET on Saturday.

Following the keynote, stay on the stream for game demos, interviews, developer panels and more, throughout the evening and on Sunday too.

KING OF FIGHTERS XIV 50 CHARACTERS OMG THE RUMORS ARE TRUE OMGOMGOMGOMGOMG YEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEES!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Yakuza 5 AND YAkuza 0 aree comiong!!!!! Holy Christ on a tuna biscuit YES YES YES YES YEEEEEEEEEES~!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Such a shame that I won’t be able to watch it live :/

PS experience might be very big for PlayStation. And that comes from someone who is most of times negative about various stuff.

Time for some new VITA games boys ✿ヾ╲(。◕‿◕。)╱✿・゚

Hahahahahahahahaha *takes a breath* hahahahahahaha.

I had some good laugh, thank you.

Imho 2016 might be best time to be Vita owner. It’s shame that there is no Type-0 on right platform or other bigger games…. but there are quite a few smaller games worth buying.

Such a shame that SCEE/SCEA doesn’t agree.

@Archachus

It is indeed a great time to have a Vita, as I believe the console is in an “evergreen” state, with the focus on 2D/Classic style gaming.

Previous PSX was also (indeed, malistix) the last great Vita shows, with about a dozen games announced that were not on anyone’s radars. Maybe (just maybe), Sony hasn’t told the whole story with Vita yet, who knows… ;)

@oldmess
Oh I don’t mean 2D indies.

I mean full retail games (because that’s the only thing I’m interested in):

Stranger of Sword City
Trillion God of Destruction
Aegis of Earth
Odin Sphere
Zero Escape 3
Danganronpa V3
Atelier Escha Logy – NA version though it depends on whether VGP will get their hands on it.
Trails of Cold Steel 2 – not to mention first part that will be released very soon.
Mighty No.9 – it seems that some of EU countries will get it with full retail
Muv-Luv
Dead or Alive Extreme 3 – english R3 version
Mobile Suit Gundam: Extreme VS Force – english R3 version
Moero Crystals – english R3 version (though I would say AVOID as previous part was god awful)
Deemo: Last Recital – english R3 version
Civilization Revolution 2+ – english R3 version

And that’s just a tip of an iceberg. We still will get probably around 5-6 games from NISA alone, and maybe some from IF. Also I’m keeping my fingers crossed for Yoru No Nai Kuni physical release on Vita… I can’t imagine playing ...

For the first time… SONY can actualy make with NO EFFORT make whole conference about Vita alone. Like PS Vita Direct that we begged for…. like…. 2 years ago when it was still a good time to try to do anything with Vita. We all know that they won’t do anything like that, but still it’s very good time to be Vita owner. And the best of it is… it’s happening DESPITE Sony being Sony with all their bad decisions about Vita.

Fred, is anyone ever going to address questions in the store posts?

4.1

Apologies for the recent silence – I’m very conscious of it and we’ve been working to get back on track. If all goes to plan, we’ll have a new Store expert online for next week’s update and beyond.

Its not a recent silence… It’s been like this for months and months. Hope that the next person really answers our questions and give us feedback every week.

Cool. I’m glad that it is on a Saturday with a reasonable time for us Europeans nonetheless. I’m definitely watching it live.

Wait, it’s not being streamed through Live on Playstation?

6.1

Let me check in with my colleagues across the seas and get back to you on this.

You can use the YouTube app on PS4 (just follow PlayStation) you can also use Twitch via the PS4 browser.

6.3

You can watch through the Events app on PS4 – I believe registration is open now.

Fred hi, I tagged you in a post on twitter last night about Kings Quest my id is Link1709 could you take a look. It’s time sensitive. Thanks :)

7.1

That’s a tough one. I’ll see what I can find out…

It had been asked multiple times in store posts if anyone could have been bothered to look. Basically you have not just given a demo, but given a demo that stops us from getting the full experience. There is nothing for the gamers about you anymore.

This might make a bit too much sense for some, but… ever tried contacting CUSTOMER SUPPORT instead of trying to get in contact with the people running the EU playstation blog? It’s not their job to handle issues tied to games, the store or whatever.

Go through the proper channels and you will both help them and yourself better.

PSX = new games from Santa Monica, San Diego and Bend.

Any news about Afro Samurai refunds yet Fred?

Any news for Vita owners? No? I’ll just keep playing Freedom Wars then thank you.
Don’t mind me.

There’ll be plenty of Vita love at PSX. Last year they showed MLB 15, Darkest Dungeon, Geometry Wars 3 Dimensions, Bastion, Severed, Shovel Knight, Suikoden, Suikoden II, Towerfall Ascension, Octodad: Dadliest Catch, The Banner Saga, Super Time Force Ultra, Resident Evil Revelations 2, Broken Age, Grim Fandango Remastered and Day of the Tentacle: Special Edition at the keynote alone.

I wonder if they will address the price increase of the Bloodborne DLC in the UK/EU we the Playstation experience #EUcashcowsforsony… I mean #fortheplayers….

Alas, I’ll be working until 6PM and then going out for my birthday. Sunday though = catch up on PSX and the Doctor Who finale. (^_^)_b

Shame to miss the live show, but I’ll watch the archive anyway. Go Gio! =D

12.1

Happy birthday for Saturday sir

I cant wait for it to come

I’ll miss the first half hour as i finish work at 6 but i am looking forward to seeing some announced release dates maybe for No Man’s Sky from Hello Games and Dreams from Media Moleclule.

14.1

Noooooooooo, Tracey, say it ain’t so!

6pm UK time? COOL :P Makes a change from the (to) late E3 times :D

No PSN Event to register to? I would like to watch the stream through my PS4.

16.1

Been there for days.

18

Really counting on some more SEGA localizations – Yakuza and Valkyria Chronicles series have still many titles to be translated with some very important ones. Yakuza 1&2 HD Edition, Y0, Y6, Valkyria Chronicles: Azure Revolution, VC3, remakes from both…

Also, some Vita love will be most welcome.

19

Is the a countdown timer?

20

You know, guys, you really should start making countdowns for things like that instead of just giving some GMT/CET. Not everyone lives in this timezones or uses them with any regularity, so finding out when exactly will the presentation begin can be way harder that it should.

20.1

Countdown is up now.

GMT/UCT is 0 and a global standard so you should know what your local time is in relation to that.

21

My body is ready.

Well, I’m looking forward to it.

Hoping for some awesome “This is available right now” moments.

i hope they bring out Ni No Kuni 2!!!

23.1

that would be amazing, but i highly doubt it :P that would come out of nowhere :P

23.2

Yea that would be awesome! I think I read rumors about a sequel sometime ago :o Fingers crossed.

All our prayers answered

I’m not at all impressed that 2k put back release of civ rev 2+ on vita until late January with 1 DAYS NOTICE before it was actually due for release. Bad form!!!
Even tho Asia countries still got it on 3Rd December

If only there was a Twitch PS4 app that us Europeans could watch it through..

25.1

I don’t understand, the Live from PlayStation app allows you watch and comment on twitch streams…?

“Live from Playstation” let’s us watch PS4 streamed games. Twitch app let’s us watch the entire site. I’m tired of having to switch on a US account to watch. Just release it here already…

AlucardTepes_DE 05 December, 2015 @ 18:22

Probably only western games will be shown there…
If this was any close to tokyo games show, would be so much better.

Finally some Vita love. Geez Thanks Sony! Where’s that Basting for 2.99 ?

27.1

I’d hardly call a couple of cross-buy indies and the guy taking the Vita out of his pocket a couple of times to give off the impression that our complaints about the lack of support for Vita are ridiculous and overreacted “Vita love”, but ofcourse, that’s just my stand on it.. Maybe I just got the wrong impression because the guy wasn’t all too serious but that’s how it came across to me atleast.. GTA, GT, God of war on Vita, to name a few, I would consider Vita love. But those times are long gone. First portable with 2 joysticks and most we got to play on it are Dpad games.. -_-

Any idea when today the Final Fantasy VII PS4 port will be available on the PS Store, please?

28.1

Probably after the show so midnight for you :).

Mardolina: Here’s hoping. :)

29

All those VR games look so disappointing so far, also way too much indies, even for Sony show.

30

This was just as funny as watching paint dry. …..

Golem looked alright. The zombie taxi game looked terrible.

Hob looked pretty sweet. Sort of had a Legend of Zelda feel with the movement & grace of Wind Waker. Possibly a dash of Super Mario Sunshine’s Noki Bay. Definitely a big Nintendo vibe there.

Once KOFXIV and Yakuza 0 make it to PS4, I’ll finally buy one. Two of my favorite series are back! Such a relief to hear, I thought Yakuza was dead in the water after the poor sales of the first 5 games.

But man, KOFXIV will have 50 fighters! This hype is just too much. Gotta clear my backlog in 2016, then I’ll truly be ready for the next generation!

32

Only 2 decent looking games were confirmed. I was desperately waiting for God of War 4 (which I was expecting) and Metal Gear rising 2 (which I didn’t expect) and I am really disappointed, maybe PlayStation is dead….

33

That was really kind of boring, to be honest.. Opened great with amazing campaign footage from Uncharted 4 and some FF7 remake gameplay, then it just couldn’t keep me interested until the very end and the Ni no Kuni 2 announcement. Undoubtedly the highlight of this keynote. And Ratchet&Clank still looks amazing too. But yea, for me, probably one of the worst shows I can remember in general:(

Yakuza 0 is not confirmed for the EU. Wow, just wow…

Need to know, but is the FFVII PC port coming to the EU PS Store today? And also is the PS2 Emulated games coming today?

35.1

both are available right now :)

Just got FF7 downloading now (mainly for the theme tbh), found it to hard to find the ps2 classics but clicking on the names in the blog post about tthem will take you straight there (not for all but I was only interested in dark cloud and rogue galaxy, never expected them on ps store!)

Disappointing keynote really. It already started badly when I tried to watch the livestream on Live from Playstation. The loading bar would get to 50% and then get stuck. When I then pressed a button to back out to the main menu my entire PS4 froze (and this happened twice …). I missed the first 15 minutes because of that. Could you please make sure that the next time you have an event on Live from Playstation it actually works Sony ?

The only things I liked about the keynote itself were the Uncharted trailer, Ratched and Clank (never played one but this looks awesome!) and perhaps Ni no Kuni 2. I was convinced we were going to see God of War 4 but that didn’t happen. After an amazing E3 and Paris Games Week press conference this one was definitely dissapointing !

36.1

Exact same thing happened to me

That was such a disappointment…

Bastion – £6 in UK, $3.75 in America? This a joke?

Thought they said 2.99 on the stream for US. But once again it shows how incompetent Sony EU are

39

Appreciate you linking the video here btw, Fred. When I try to watch on Youtube itself it gives me the content warning and I don’t have an account. Worked great again.

All these new articles being uploaded about all the various indie games, but not a single one about the game that was demanded the MOST by the fans, Yakuza 5, being released next week? Or is that release date just for America and we will be met with a wall of silence again?

Also, is Yakuza Zero coming to Europe as well? I would assume it is, but just want to check. Not overly fussed if not, currently learning Japanese and managed to get through Ryu ga Gotoku without struggling so if it doesn’t i’ll just import Zero as well :)

I can confirm that Final Fantasy VII is now on the EU store! I LOVE the Midgar home screen theme. :D

42

Seemed like they were really struggling for new big budget announcements…was a bit of an anti-climax tbh. Some things looked cool and good to see the FFVII gameplay but other than that I kept drifting off…

43

Remember back in 2011 when Sony were good and making good games?

44

If they wont talk about firstparty at psx when the hell Will they ? This presser was pointless

45

This made me realize that console gaming is TRULY dead

46

Please consider bringing Yakuza 0 to the EU!!!
