First post!

Managed to score a ticket for the Seattle show, super pumped. Going to witness the birth of VR on the bigscreen and see all the amazing new PS4 stuff.

Been lurking since juuust before the PS4 reveal and been a daily reader ever since. Seen some epic, epic threads. Have many of you PS4 guys on my psn list.

Anyone going to be in Seattle for the show?
Welcome! There's a few people from Seattle going, you should sign up on the spreadsheet.

Hardline confirmed for the Sony conference I guess, no real surprise though.
I was only expecting it at Microsoft's conference, Battlefield 4 wasn't at Sony's last year and Microsoft and Ea are in bed together. I really hope that beta key isn't the only gift.

Welcome to the GAF. I think you'll find, if you haven't already, it makes all game sites obsolete.
Im a new member as well. Even as a lurker it made all game sites obsolete.
The day I was accepted felt like christmas :)

Hope Sony delivers on my first E3 as a member.

I think EA is about to start spreading the love

Yeah I'm not interested in a beta code for a series that hasn't fixed it's last game yet. No interest here. I hope we get something else. I feel kind of dumb for hoping we'd get TLOU downloads or PSN bucks.

If anyone has an extra ticket for Salt Lake City (or know where I can buy one), please let me know. I was out of town when the announcement was made and am wanting to attend this BADLY.

i'm not sure this is the main thing. this is an email, and they told us we would "go home" with the surprise.

unless it's a pamphlet of beta keys, i think this is just one of the extra goodies and not THE surprise

Sony better use this conference to rectify is holiday lineup. With The Order bring delayed, PS4s lineup for this fall needs some serious amelioration. I am hoping Sony's been saving up some exceptional titles for this contingency. Is gonna REALLY suck if they don't.

of course. i think they said as much. i just don't believe this rings "Big Playstation Surprise"
I think it does. What would you honestly expect? It's not going to be something extremely glamorous or expensive, and a beta invite would be unique/special for those who attended.

Look I am as down as you are about Sony's lineup for the rest of the year, but you are better off just forgetting anything big first party wise. The rest of the year is gonna suck, but 2015 is shaping up to be something special perhaps.

A beta code for a third party game is the special surprise?

i am expecting a copy of last of us remaster, a collectible, bunch of beta keys and maybe a plus membership and maybe a ps4 giveaway for one person. there is the whole naughty dog 30th anniversary and playstation 20th anniversary so expect some decent goodies.

I wouldn't be surprised. Hey, I'm not saying that I'd be totally satisfied with it (have very little interest in BF outside of single player since it doesn't have FFA), but I don't have high expectations for what they'll be giving out.

For one person per theater or for every single person? You don't think it's a bit much if it's the latter?

I haven't gotten a beta key yet. =(

Has everyone who got in the E3 theater experience gotten the code?
I only went as far as the page where you enter your info, I didn't get tickets. But, I got an email.

I'm expecting a pretty racous crowd and quite sure they'll be filming audience reactions across the country since it's an event, not just a "movie" . Will be especially fun attending the show right here in MS's backyard. And thanks to above poster, getting on the Seattle list :)

in the grand scheme of things a copy of last of us remaster(prolly digital code instead) and a plus membership isn't going to cost them much to give out to like what 25000 attendees max ? then again i probably do have high hopes lol and it probably is just some collectible and a bunch of beta keys. like i said the anniversaries could warrant a big surprise for hardcore fans

If the hype is too real and you've missed out, you could try going to the theatre anyway. There is always someone who books and then doesn't make it, and you might be able to grab their seat.

I had a friend do this for film festivals, he always got better seats than the ones I had booked :(

Couldn't care less about a BF Hardline beta key. Will give away.
Am I the only one would rather have something tangible? Key chain, poster, coin...

Maybe a beta key for now and a retail key for later. That'd do. Also, never happen.

Edit: I'm not counting anything out and I'm happy with anything I didn't pay for. Just. Betas, ew.

I have much lower hopes lol. I think it will just be some small PS collectible and this one beta key.

I think some of you are incredibly optimistic (although that would be very nice) to entertain the possibility of The Last Of Us: Remastered AND PS+. I expect a 12 or 3 month PS+ subscription code. I think a 3 month trial of PS Now might also be a possibility. This would be on top of the collectible they mentioned of course. But I don't think the beta will be the only surprise.

I expect something Sony/Playstation, not a third party thing. i guess being a beta on the ps4, it's a Playstation surprise, but i honestly expected an in-house thing

Yeah, a beta code for a game I'm not really hyped about would kinda kill my hype, but the conference would have to pick my spirits up.
