James Gallagher, content producer for SCEE, has officially revealed through a reply to a comment on the EU Playstation.Blog that the SCEA press conference will be available to watch in Playstation Home.
Bad a**. Being able to see the conference in a virtual environment makes me a happy camper. Don't have the money or the means to see the conference in person I'll take the next best thing. Better than seeing a YouTube video any day.
You can use Gametrailers too, they're streaming it in HD, but the servers could break down due to too many users.
@1.2 - Yeah GT is doing live streams too, but their servers are really good, I'd be very surprised if the website crashes during the conferences.
Just saying, why not use the best avenue to view the conference. Of course, if you are at work and can get on GT, use them by all mens.
...I just hope it will be up for download on PSN after the live feed or semi-live feed in HOME.
It would be even better if they remade their whole E3 floor in Home. My avatar would be able to attend.
@ locos Yea I agree. We should be able to walk around in a virtual E3, walking up to a booth, playing demos, watching trailers/demonstrations.. THAT would be the bomb, this video of the sony conference is kinda 'meh' imo.
if i could do that id run up to greenberg and virtual dropkick his nose.....all in good fun though. Who would you drop kick??? @ locos I heard that that was the direction home would end up at eventually and I believe they could pull it off somehow
Ummm apparently no one hear has G4.
Thats where it will all go down in that new space, and what a space it is OMG! was made just for E3 i bet. if you havent seen it yet go take a look, like wow..
yes i was expecting this. i really hope they model the conference and e3 booths for us to visit virtually
YEAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAA AAAAAAAAAAAHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHH HHHHHH!!!!
Don't worry you can use your vaunted party chat to talk about E3 as you watch it from another source.
@ 36T It's funny that you are saaaadd.. BTW nice !
@ 36T I know !!!! CRAAAAAABB PEOPLEEE CRAAAAABB PEOLE CRAAAAB PEOPLE... xD http://www.youtube.com/watc... but seriously to the point. Finaly HOME is delivering something, with HOME thropies for virtual home (RE5 for eg.), that we thought it would be part of it from very beggining, and now you are trying to despise it. You think that posting on N4G is cooler than HOME live E3 show ? Both are the same. Both must be gay in your mind. So why are you doing this ? Because it's fun ? Yeah HOME is fun to more people that you think.
So Home is lame you say? Then what does that say for the Miitoo ripoffs that just stand there with those goofy poses? In my opinion its bad enough that you have such lame little Avatars, no what's worse is that MS makes it MANDATORY to have a silly little Tree-atar. Home is evolving and is getting better every week. The R2 mini-game is very addicting. My avatar can go where ever he wants in an constantly expanding virtual world. Your avatar just STANDS there. Yeah, you are right....Home sucks and MS's Avatars are the superduperdupidistastical bestist MANDATORY interface evaaaaaar. You silly little man.
totally yeeeeaaaaaahhhhh!!!! That is f*cking awesome!!! Watching the press conference together with all the other people.. And you can talk about the games, while watching it, thats just ingenious!
It only makes sense....I am surprised that they didn't announce this earlier.
ya I've just been waiting for this announcement since i first tried Home. really cant wait to see what they do.
I'm SOOOO gonna be there!
someone save me a seat and some popcorn. :) this is good real good.
good reason to visit HOME
goes with what hiphop gamer was saying except he said that you could walk around in a virtual sony booth and download demos that are on the show floor through playstation home. :(
right now you'll see a LINK function that isn't active yet. This LINK will be the thing that kicks you into the Store.
they really do their best for their customers!!! i can now watch E3 from my home thousands of miles away???????????????? daaaaaaaaaaaaaaaamn!!!! i never went to any game conference and now i will get to see E3!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! thank u so much sony!!!! Home FTW!
Ah, nice. It'll be in the middle of the night for me (Eu), but I still might check it out.
If it's a good stream I'm there!
I'll be victory dancing all over home.
I can just imagine everyone doing he running man after a bad a** announcement.
@locos haha yeah, can't wait for this
Home do something like this before, except they actually created a Home space of the trade show, where people could walk around the Sony show area and see the conference live? They did it in the closed beta.
floor of TGS last year but it was only accessible to those on the TGS floor if I remember correctly.
Is this for EU only?
the space is available both in the EU and US servers so it's safe to assume it'll be available in both ...
sounds interesting, might check it out :D
What the point if you are watching it with your friends if you can not voice chat? Seriously? Hopefully the enable voice chat in this area so you can talk to your buddies rather than typing and having 50% of what you are going to say censored. ENABLE voice chat for this area and this might not be a failure. If voice chat is enable, then they only way this might fail is what the other users might do. If you have some idiots pulling out their bubble machine and bubbling up the area, that is going to piss a lot of users off. Sony should disable the bubble machine for this area because it is annoying. I had it happen to me when I was playing in the arcade and some idiot put a bubble machine next to me and [email protected]#ked my screen up.
Ya thats a good idea, that way you can listen to everyone talking but can't hear the conference.
that why there is an option of mute people. Mute everyone you don't know and just leave you friends unmuted.
hundreds of people screaming over each other at the same time about something? painful
the last thing i wanna do is hear the opinions of the idiots who clicked something by mistake if u wanna talk to someone call them on the home menu.
You know if they are on your friends list, you can "call" them through your home menu and do voice chat in public spaces. It will only work if you have them on your friends list. Also I am not sure if you can or can't do this with multiple friends at once. But that should help you out so you don't have to cry about it.
You can only call one friend at a time. And I wasn't crying about it, I was just stating something a lot of people let slide on the matter.
I understand, I personally like it better now that retarded people aren't running around screaming profanities and racist nonsense.. Along with anyone who blasts music that no one else wants to hear. The thing is, so many people did it that muting them would tend to be tedious. Ever since I bought the wireless keypad for the controller home has been more enjoyable. I do wish that you could phone as many friends as you wanted at once like a voice chat room in home. Also it is kind of cool that you can phone friends even when they are in different home spaces than you.
sorry but: it's more important to watch the conference than to be able to voice chat with +50 people at once .. it's chaos .. You think streaming a live event and enabling vocal chat is a good idea ? you want to crash the servers ?
Isnt that what we all have been waiting for??? CONFIRMED ! I hooe it works out. Thats Great News!
..i'm not sure what to do with myself! Socomer, you are one funny dude man! Keep it up!
Nice, the theater will be full.
i don't know but it could be on the plaza or a whole new zone :)
except it's not in this area at all ... it's in a new space ( podium ) already open to visit if you wish ...
better download it now before the server get overloaded of traffic lol. Thanks 4 the hint.
Now all of a sudden HOME is hot heh? lol, watch mad people that never touched Home go in.
YYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYY YYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYEEEEEEE EESSSSSSSSSSSS!!!!!!!!! damm.. only thing that o worry about is.. that some perv on Home will go around E3's virtual place, doin the *running boy* even to the videos lol
Or u could just watch it on G4.
A live feed in Home would be sweet but it's not like we won't have places to watch the live feeds. Last year I watched the MS and Sony conferences on Gamespot which was pretty good. As long as I can watch it I don't care where...I'll just have my laptop, desktop and PS3 running at the same time with different feeds just to make sure I don't miss out lol.
Now i have a reason to start up Home again.
It would be better if You could watch it also from Playstation site. for those gamers who are at work, but I guess other sites would have to do I wonder though would there be playback videos in home or the store,.. Just in case the server's are slow.
is that a cannibis pastie in your avatar?! lol, love it! EDIT: this was supposed to go under the next one down, oops.
The good thing about using Home instead of GT is that you can see people thoughts on the announcements because people will be watching with you and text chatting! You can go in the room and watch it with your friends and we can both go AWOLLL over GoW3 and start dancing!!!!! E3 WAS MADE FOR HOME!
I'm there! :P
My tent is already set-up in that space lol
I will set up a virtual snack table for everyone. :P
When is this useless app getting off the beta?
When your mother stop sucking my coock.
