Sony's E3 Press Conference is usually a must see for Sony fans. Whether at the event live or watching online through one of the various streaming locales, the gratification is usually instantaneous. But if you won't be in Los Angeles, or you have a lousy internet connection, Sony will again let you see the show at one of 85 theaters across the United States and Canada.
Tickets have already started to be given out while supplies last. They are free, but you must register for a Gofobo account and be at least 17 years of age.
Anyone attending the show will get a poster, card #76 in the PlayStation collectable set, and a gift basket of digital goodies. Here's the catch, though. Attendees who have registered for a ticket will be seated on a first-come, first-served basis until the theater reaches capacity. Receiving a ticket does not guarantee you a seat. IDs will be checked at the venue to make sure the age requirement is met.
"This is the fourth year we’re broadcasting our E3 Press Conference live to theaters across North America and I can’t wait to bring the excitement of E3 straight to you," Sony Market Specialist Tiane Belle said in a blog post about the event. "Watching the announcements and news alongside other members of the PlayStation community is an experience like no other."
If you live in Brazil, Sony is working on some details for showings there as well, but nothing is official yet.

John Keefer posted a new article, Can't attend Sony's E3 Press Conference? See It In Select Theaters
I would love a theater around here to just do one press conference after another over here. I might take a few days off just for that.
They do this every year so it must be a hit. I can't imagine wanting to whoop and cheer for a press conference on a movie screen with a bunch of randos though
Shame they stopped doing it in Europe.
Ya, and the site is getting crushed.
Few times like this I wish knew how to be a scriptkiddie. I just assume those how people get through clogged servers like this. Like for preorders, I assume people just enlist script kiddies to unleash their botnot on whatever site to get the goods.
Tell me I'm wrong?!
