The third annual PlayStation Experience event will be held this weekend, December 3-4, at the Anaheim Convention Center in California. If you fancy a trip to Southern California, you can still purchase tickets. The event will be live streamed through Facebook, Twitch.tv, and YouTube. You can also tune in to PlayStation’s official streaming site and sign in with your PSN ID to unlock bonus content.

The PlayStation Experience is a PAX-like gaming convention that focuses on, you guessed it, PlayStation games and products. Sony won’t be the only developer and publisher, however. Both major partners and indie developers will be presenting their games, such as Activision, Capcom, Double Fine, EA, Naughty Dog, and Ubisoft.

For those in attendance over 100 games will be playable on the show floor. Most are demos and playable builds of upcoming releases. Promising indies include Flinthook, Cosmic Star Heroine, and Night in the Woods. Bigger releases include The Last Guardian and Horizon Zero Dawn. Several PlayStation VR titles will also be available.

The PlayStation Experience also includes several panels on Saturday and Sunday. Legendary game designer Hideo Kojima will host a panel for his upcoming game Death Stranding, and he’s also available for autographs. Other panels include Guerrilla Games discussing Horizon Zero Dawn, and a panel on accessibility and exclusivity in the gaming industry. For lighter fare there’s a Kinda Funny panel with Greg Miller and Colin Moriarty.

At least two major tournaments can be found at this year’s event. The Capcom Cup features the best Street Fighter V players from around the world. They’ll be competing for the title of SFV world champion, starting at 6 pm PT on Saturday.

The Call of Duty World League will launch its 2017 tournament season at the PlayStation Experience. The biggest teams will compete in the first official broadcast of newly released Call of Duty: Infinite Warfare. The tournament will be live streamed at MLG.tv and on Twitch.
