178w ago - Today PlayStation Home Community Manager Locust_Star has announced that Sony will be hosting a virtual booth and streaming E3 2011 live next week directly on the PS3 entertainment system via PlayStation Home.

To quote: With the E3 Expo just around the corner, the PlayStation Home team is happy to announce that you'll be able to be part of the convention excitement – right from your PS3!

For the first time ever, PlayStation Home will host a live public video stream of the Sony E3 press conference on Monday, June 6 at 5pm Pacific Time in a special screening room. You can watch SCEA President and CEO Jack Tretton reveal all of the big E3 announcements and watch never-before-seen footage of tons of upcoming PS3 and NGP titles.

If you visited the booth last year, you'll remember that we enabled you to explore a virtual recreation of PlayStation's E3 booth. Expect the same this year, with a few new surprises – including a 3D-rendered NGP to inspect from every angle.
