Sony to stream E3 presentation to movie theaters

Playstation-E3

In the past, there were two ways to enjoy E3.  First, was actually being there to experience gaming’s grandest spectacle.  Second, there was sitting on your couch with your laptop, praying that the video stream doesn’t crap out.  Now, Sony is giving you a chance to do something a little in between.  They’re giving you the chance to watch their press event in a move theater.  Yep.  Read on for the details.

Sony announced the event earlier today on their official blog, which will be taking place in 40 to 50 theaters across the United States and Canada.  Sorry, rest of the world.  Guess you’ll just have to deal with the convenience of watching Sony’s press conference from the comfort of your own homes.

For anyone in North America who thinks that packing themselves into a movie theater to watch a corporate press briefing sounds like a great time, here’s the details.  The event will begin at 8:30pm ET, 5:30pm PT on June 9th, thirty minutes before the press conference begins.  This extra half hour will feature extended game footage and interviews, and will be hosted by gaming’s Uberjournalist, Geoff Keighley.  Check out the video below to learn even more about what Sony is calling their “E3 Experience.”

The event will be free, but space is obviously limited, so Sony is asking anyone who is interested to RSVP online here.  You’ll be able to search for the theater nearest you on the website, or just take a look at the list below.

Joe

Joe was born in a time of war. A console war. Two electronic titans were locked in a heated battle for the living rooms of America. Which titans, you ask? Well, the Fairchild Channel F and the Atari 2600 of course. You see, Joe is old. So many of his favorite games tend to be on the older side as well. But that hasn’t stopped him from developing unhealthy obsessions with such modern franchises as Halo and Mass Effect. Just don’t tell him how long it’s been since the original Metroid was released. His aging heart can’t take the shock.
