Plus, Project Morpheus! An Uncharted Retrospective! More!

Yoshida, president of Sony Worldwide Studios, will be interviewed onstage by Eurogamer editor Oli Welsh at 1pm on Saturday 26th September. Yoshida will discuss the launch of PSOne, how the video game business has changed over the years and his personal favourite PlayStation moments.

Sony will also host a meet and greet session on the Saturday on the PlayStation stand on the showfloor.

Other Sony developer sessions include The Journey of VR - Project Morpheus, set for 1pm on Friday 25th September, and An Uncharted Retrospective - Greatness from Small Beginnings, scheduled for 4pm on Saturday 26th September.

The September 2015 show - which will be the first to take place at Birmingham's NEC after the untimely demise of our previous home, London's Earls Court - will see a raft of playable games on the PlayStation stand. Here's the list:

  • Project Morpheus
  • Uncharted: The Nathan Drake Collection
  • Tearaway Unfolded
  • Ratchet and Clank
  • Until Dawn
  • Shadow Of The Beast
  • The Tomorrow Children
  • Everybody's Gone to the Rapture
  • Alienation
  • Star Wars Battlefront
  • Metal Gear Solid 5: The Phantom Pain
  • PES 16
  • Street Fighter 5
  • Need for Speed
  • Assassin's Creed Syndicate
  • Disney Infinity 3.0
  • Mad Max
  • Lego Dimensions
  • Soma
  • Once Upon a Life
  • Broforce
  • I Am Bread
  • FIFA 16
  • Rocket League
  • NBA 2K16

It's worth noting there's a sign-up process to play Project Morpheus, which means all slots across the four-day show will be pre-booked. There will soon be a dedicated site where you can pop your name down, and you need to be 18 years old or over.

The PlayStation stand also includes a 20th Anniversary area, which features a selection of classic games available to play on the PSone. There's a PSone Ridge Racer time trial competition, too, with 20th Anniversary PS4s up for grabs.

EGX 2015 runs from 24th to 27th September at the NEC in Birmingham. Buy tickets here, and don't forget to claim your Virgin Trains discount if you're planning to travel by rail. See you there!
