PlayStation Experience 2017 dates

Sony announces PlayStation Experience 2017 dates, along with an extra Friday night treat.

The PlayStation Experience is Sony’s winter extravaganza, where they gather fans together for a big old celebration in sunny California.

They also trot out trailers for games in the works that get people very excited, like last year’s The Last of Us 2, or 2015’s Final Fantasy VII Remake. Or you know, ones that really disappoint people, like 2014’s Final Fantasy VII PS4 re-issue (with the accompanying audience reaction that’s nearly as negative as Valve’s recent Artifact flop).

It’s also a bit of punctuation at the ‘other’ end of the year, with most of the big announcements and trailer reveals falling in the summer months, between E3, Gamescom, PAX Wast and EGX.

And now Sony have confirmed the dates for the PlayStation Experience 2017. It will be held at the Anaheim Convention Center in Los Angeles, on December the 9th and 10th, 2017.

Tickets for the weekend event are on sale now and cost $75, but if you get in for an early bird pass they’ll only cost you $65. There’s also a special bonus for early bird pass purchasers: an additional event, on the evening of Friday the 8th, where you’ll “you’ll have a chance to get up-close and personal with game developers and PlayStation personalities”.

A new event this year will be a high-level Street Fighter V tournament – called the Capcom Cup – with a $250,000 prize purse.

Of course, there will also be lots of consoles and games for players to get their hands on at the PlayStation Experience 2017, including this year’s big ticket item, the PS4 Pro and Sony 4k tellies, and last year’s fading star, the PlayStation VR.
