Hello hello! Hard to believe we’re just over a week away from the kickoff of PlayStation Experience 2017, starting with Friday night’s PlayStation Presents. Gulp!
Speaking of PlayStation Presents! The show will commence at 4am GMT/5am CET next Saturday morning, 9th December. Though PlayStation’s biggest 2017 announcements were revealed at E3 and Paris Games Week, we’ve saved a few stocking stuffers for the show. Expect to listen in on candid discussions with some of PlayStation’s top developers, get updates on key titles, and be a part of some special announcements. Even Kinda Funny’s Greg Miller is dropping by!
I’m also pleased to share our panel schedule. Panels will take place on Saturday, 9th December and will stream live on live.playstation.com, Twitch, YouTube, and Facebook starting at 7pm GMT/8pm CET on Saturday. We’ll broadcast game updates, previews, and interviews in between, so don’t touch that dial!
Read on for full details. See you in Anaheim!

Ghost of Tsushima: From concept to reveal
11.30pm GMT/12.20am CET Saturday, 9th December
It’s been a month since we announced our newest title, Ghost of Tsushima. Here at Sucker Punch, we’ve watched so many reaction videos and read many of your comments with smiles on our faces, so we thought PSX was a great opportunity to share a little more with you all.
Join us on Saturday at 3:30pm as Nate Fox (Creative Director), Jason Connell (Creative/Art Director), Billy Harper (Animation Director), Ryuhei Katami (Associate Producer, Sony Interactive Entertainment) and moderator Brian Altano (IGN) discuss how we approached making the debut trailer and what inspired us to make this game. We’ll share epic concept art that’s driving the tone and visuals for the game, and share a little about our reference trips to Japan and working with new team members that are helping make Ghost of Tsushima even better. Also be sure to stop by our signing session after the panel and come say hi. Stay tuned for more info on time and location.
