Full PlayStation Experience 2017 Schedule Revealed – “Special Announcements” Expected
Sony’s PlayStation Experience 2017 is just around the corner, which means announcements, closer looks, panels, and all sorts of gaming goodness are almost here. Even though they have already revealed quite a bit at this year’s E3 and Paris Games Week, they do have a few tricks up their sleeve for the upcoming event. Or, as they say, “we’ve saved a few stocking stuffers.” Speaking of which, Sony has just dropped the full schedule, with things kicking off on Friday, December 8th at 8pm PT.
Those with an Early Bird ticket will be able to attend the showcase next Friday. For those not able to make it out to Anaheim, California for PlayStation Experience 2017, Sony’s got you covered with a livestream on their website, Twitch, YouTube, and Facebook. Fans can “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.” What could they possibly be planning for Friday night’s PlayStation Presents?
After the festivities on December 8th, PlayStation Experience 2017 officially kicks off the next morning at 10am PT. “Boy oh boy it’s set to be something special,” Sony says. After the mysteries of Saturday morning are revealed, panels will fill the rest of the day. These will also be livestreamed on the aforementioned platforms. Check out the full lineup below to see what’s going down on December 9th:

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.
