No PlayStation Experience event for 2018, confirms Sony

"I know this is going to be a disappointment for some people…"

For the past four years, Sony has held a PlayStation Experience event in the US in December. PSX, as it's known, has been used for video game announcements, big gameplay reveals and, for attendees, has acted as a festival of all things PlayStation.

We are living in a new golden age of video game music, and by way of a celebration there will be a lavish orchestral concert at the Royal Albert Hall at the end of the month (Wednesday, 30th May).

Dreams! The Last of Us Part 2! Ghost of Tsushima!

Sony has announced the full timetable for its 2017 PlayStation Experience event, due to be held - and livestreamed - from 4am on Saturday, December 9th, in the UK. Notable occurrences include the first new showing of Media Molecule's Dreams in absolutely ages, as well as a chat with the cast of Uncharted and The Last of Us Part 2.

Sony readily admits that its biggest reveals of 2017 have already been shown at this year's E3 and Paris Games Week, but it does promise "a few stocking stuffers" during PSX's opening event. These will apparently include "candid" discussions with developers, updates on key titles, and special announcements.
