PlayStation Experience 2015 Announced, Moving to San Francisco
Sony's own PlayStation-oriented convention returns, and it's heading over the Golden Gate bridge this December.
The PlayStation Experience is saying goodbye to Las Vegas and heading to the Bay Area for a weekend of PlayStation-filled gaming on Dec. 5-6. Last year, thousands of PlayStation fans and members of the media swarmed the Sands Expo and Convention Center in Las Vegas, NV in order to attend Sony's own miniature version of E3. Sony unveiled all kinds of new info, trailers and news pertaining to current and future PlayStation 4, PlayStation 3 and PS Vita titles, and you may have even seen a PlayStation TV somewhere in the building if you were lucky.
Unfortunately, scuttlebutt says that the attendance numbers were nowhere near as grand as Sony wanted them, and most third-party developers already fired their biggest guns at E3 and Gamescom in 2014 and were saving their next set of unveilings for the Game Developers Conference a few months later. Moving the event to San Fran is likely to cheapen the costs, as it's probably more expensive to rent out another Las Vegas convention center and cheaper for attendees overall. Sony is selling slightly cheaper tickets in order to try and promote a higher attendance rate. You can now buy two-day passes (in limited quantities) for $60. After those run out, you can buy two-day passes for $75 or single-day passes for $40 on the PlayStation Experience's official website.
