EA, Sony to Live Stream gamescom PressersBy Alex Co | August 15, 2011 | News | No comments | Share
In just a few short hours gamescom will open its doors and everyone will be bombarded by videogame news, trailers, etc. for the whole week.
Of course it wouldn’t be too much of an event if there were no press conferences. It looks like the only one doing a formal live-stream of their press conference will be Electronic Arts…and chances are, you will want to see it live.
The second largest videogame publisher in the world will unveil its heavy hitters for this year. Namely, FIFA 12, Need for Speed: The Run, Star Wars: The Old Republic, Mass Effect 3 and of course, Battlefield 3.
You can watch the live-stream from EA’s official site. The schedule and timezone differences can be seen below.
EA Gamescom press conference, Tuesday, August 16
4pm CET (Cologne, Germany)
3pm BST (London)
10am EDT (New York)
7am PDT (Los Angeles)
10pm Singapore, Malaysia
Wednesday, August 17
Midnight AEST (Sydney, Australia)
1am JST (Japan)
If you’re a Battlefield fan, Daniel Matros (zh1nt0) along with DICE”s Gustav Halling will be conducting a live-stream of their own to answer fan questions regarding the game! Be sure to keep that EA page open even after the press conference is done to get your Battlefield fix.
Aside from EA, Sony will also be doing a live-stream…but in the confines of their “Home” PlayStation Network service. It has not been determined if there are other streaming options, but we will surely updated this if any arises.
From Sony’s Official European PlayStation Blog:
On August 16th at 5pm CET the space will be available from the Navigator and the What’s New section of the XMB. We will be streaming the Sony press conference live into the space from 7pm CET onwards, but don’t worry if you miss it the first time round; we will be looping the hour long press conference once it’s finished and we will also be putting up video edits in the space later on.
While Microsoft will also be attending gamescom. word has it that they will be doing a game showcase and will not be doing a formal press conference. In the event that they or any other videogame company does offer a live-stream of their event or show floor, I will update ASAP.
Of course, DeltaGamer will be there on gamescom to cover the latest and biggest games. Be sure to check back regularly for the latest updates on the show floor.
