You won't have to miss Sony's presser at this year's Gamescom even though you can't physically bring yourself to Cologne, Germany.
Right in the comforts of your own home, through PlayStation Home, you can watch the presscon live, uninterrupted.
Said Sony of the details on their PlayStation Blog, "On August 16th at 5PM CET the space will be available from the Navigator and the What's New section of the XMB. We will be streaming the Sony press conference live into the space from 7PM CET onwards, but don't worry if you miss it the first time round; we will be looping the hour long press conference once it's finished and we will also be putting up video edits in the space later on."
Among the items expected to be delved into by Sony at this presser is the much-talked about new PS3 model, which would feature a different design. As for a price drop for the console, it's still left to be known, but hey, it's just a week away.
Gamescom 2011 happens in Cologne from August 17th to the 20th.
