1200 People Expected at Sony's PlayStation 2013 Event

When Sony wants to make an announcement, they need only post a message to their Twitter feed, Facebook page, or their own blog. But why drip that information when they can make a splash? With that in mind, Sony will be having an event. For 1200 attendees.
Twelve hundred people for an announcement is quite a spectacular number... (Industry, Next-Gen, PS4, Sony)

Prcko  +   1009d ago
i think 1200 press only,not public

I'll bet they'll be another 1000 standing outside the building though. Does it have a jumbotron? I'll bet that too. They pretty much invented the thing anyway.

chadwarden  +   1009d ago

That is 1,200 sources of info to gather date from.

Also 1,200 people who could potentially be let down if they don't actually reveal the PS4.
majiebeast  +   1009d ago
1200 thats what 4x the size of a E3 presser?

I doubt it. But you could try your luck Sony always lets some fans in at there E3 pressers mostly those who have been standing in line for a day.

Darn. How'd you get it? :/
Crazay  +   1009d ago
He's so full of crap that if you dried it out you could fertilize the lawn with it.

On another note, did I see that this would be broadcast somewhere?
WeAreLegion  +   1009d ago
It will be broadcast on many websites, including IGN, CVG, 1UP (I think), and the PlayStation Blog.

Here's one link:

brandonb21  +   1009d ago
yes. and 6 million or so watching the live stream
Soldierone  +   1009d ago
There were over 60k people watching that video for Vita yesterday at one point, can't imagine what the streaming numbers will be for this too.
GiantFriendlyCrab  +   1009d ago
Liquid_Ocelot  +   1009d ago
Where I was watching it, it said 90k(+)
Can't imagine how big this meeting will be.. Sony should play "All Eyez on Me" at the event (kidding) :P

Let's hope this next gen brings even bigger and better things than the one before it, can't wait.. just a few more hours. God the wait for this and F1 Season is killing me.
WeskerChildReborned  +   1009d ago
Well if the hype for PS4 is true, their should be quite a bit of people.
Ultr  +   1009d ago
totally here in switzerland the bigggest online newspaper streams too directly, this is going to be huge
porkChop  +   1009d ago
1200? But didn't they reserve a 2200 seat venue? Seems like a ton of wasted space...
BitbyDeath  +   1009d ago
Some need more than one seat.
Reverent  +   1009d ago
They are pressers after all.

They needed room for Kojima's security detail.
porkChop  +   1009d ago
Kojima just arrived in Paris today, so I don't think he'll be at the Sony event lol.
superterabyte  +   1009d ago
@BitbyDeath Will Gabe newell be there?
cannon8800  +   1009d ago

Dude, a fat joke a day keeps half life 3 away.
GraveLord  +   1009d ago
Breathing room is always nice. Plus there'll be jizz all over the place so the further apart, the better.
cannon8800  +   1009d ago
LOL I would keep a safe distance from everybody else. I would bring an umbrella just for added protection.

This is going to be the greatest thing in videogames ever or the biggest fail ever.

It is going to be BIG, whatever it may be a good or a bad thing.
brandonb21  +   1009d ago

Zefros  +   1009d ago
I heard that Kojima is going to be there too, is that true?
baldulf  +   1009d ago
He flew to the US just today, I guess he'll be there.
TheOneEyedHound  +   1009d ago
And if he's not?
porkChop  +   1009d ago
No, he flew to Paris. He said it himself and he posted pictures of Paris that he took.
TheOneEyedHound  +   1009d ago
I expect this to be big, bigger than the super bowl, a 2.8-3.2 billion viewers at starting point I say.
strigoi814  +   1009d ago
Sony better not to troll this 1200 individuals in attendance or else....doomed
NateCole  +   1009d ago

taco_tom237  +   1009d ago

Some have asked Sony this and they've just replied that details will be going out soon.

Hopefully Home will be covering it.
Goodfella78  +   1009d ago

Before I watch the live stream I'm going to beat my meat just so I'll be more relaxed and not all crazy and stuff. Gotta prepare for the big day!
khimoney  +   1009d ago
Ill be doing it during the announcment
WitWolfy  +   1009d ago
If this announcement is so massive as people claim it will be then they would've streamed it in HOME as well.
Hicken  +   1009d ago
Well, it can't be SMALL, as you don't invite 1200 people and stream the event through dozens of sites just to make a small announcement.
urwifeminder  +   1009d ago
All vita owners in the one place awesome. <S
