Both Sony’s CES Press Conference and Kaz Hirai’s Keynote Will be Livestreamed: Here’s How to Watch

There have been rumors floating on the net about the unveiling of Sony’s new PS4 virtual reality headset at CES, and that’s most likely to happen during the company’s press conference on Monday or CEO Kaz Hirai’s keynote on Tuesday.

Luckily, even if you won’t be able to attend the event in Las Vegas, both conferences will be livestreamed.

The press conference will air on January 6th at 5 PM PST, and  will be livestreamed directly by Sony here (you can find the video embedded at the bottom of the post).

Kaz Hirai’s keynote will be livestreamed by Cnet here (Update: it’ll be livestreamed by Sony as well, in the video embedded below) on January 7th starting at 8:30 AM PST (the conference proper will start at 9 AM).

Will Sony really unveil its response to the Oculus Rift? We’ll know in two or three days.

    Unless it is cheap VR is a waste of time.

    Who cares about a VR headset.. for a console. You guys realise that it will be almost impossible to run a “1080p 60FPS” game like Infamous 2 via that headset? You need so much extra power to run one of those things… The games will be like PS2 quality.

    • Marvin Deonte’ McClain

      Im pretty sure Infamous 2 could run at well over 60 fps on a PS4. Try again troll.

        You do understand that it would need to support more than 1080p because it needs to be displayed on two separate screens? I love my ps4 but If its maxing out on one output at 1080 it very unlikely its going to magically get twice as good overnight. Its too early to tell, but it seems the evidence is stacked against them.

          we talking about wiiu or PS4?

          But the Oculus Rift, a PC peripheral, doesn’t even attempt that. It’s one 1080p display split down the middle, so 2x960x1080.

          Considering how parallel the PS4 architecture is, it might scale almost as well for 3D at half resolution per view as a 1080p 2D resolution.

      and with 4k and 8k TV’s on the horizon why would you even bother. I thought Sony was done making stupid mistakes like this after the 3DTV farce.

      Fundamentally people don’t like wearing stuff on their face/head hence it is a flawed concept from the get go, you can’t get around that fact.

      Ask anyone who has to wear glasses.

      Hell releasing smart watches was another dumb idea, why? because people can’t be bothered wearing wrist watches anymore.

        “Fundamentally people don’t like wearing stuff on their face/head hence it is a flawed concept from the get go, you can’t get around that fact.”

        That’s why everyone hates the Oculus Rift, right?

        • LordNorthEastWest

          Using small sections of press and public who have had their “wow” 5-10min experiences to justify something to masses is faulty logic.

          It is a good sales pitch but ultimately transparent. and wearing it on your head is just one issue it has many other caveats which limit its application, I suggest you do the research first.

          I’ve seen and heard plenty negative things about it if you are prepared to look for it. Or you could just keep your blinkers on.

            I don’t need to do research when I actually tried it. Did you? :D

            The experience was impressive. Personally, I don’t play sales, I play games, and the gaming experiences a VR headset can provide have a lot of potential.

            You throw around the term “faulty logic” and “flawed logic” and yet use it incorrectly.

            Anyways…condescending geeks are so 2003. To each their own. And anyone’s own is as good as anyone else’s.

            Although I do agree that VR headsets aren’t for everyone. If you ask me, the audience that will buy it won’t use it more than a handful of times. Really cool gadgets with an apparent wow factor but way too much down side.

            See? I did that without coming off like a douche! Wait…maybe not :p

        “Fundamentally people don’t like wearing stuff on their face/head hence it is a flawed concept from the get go, you can’t get around that fact.”

        “Hell releasing smart watches was another dumb idea, why? because people can’t be bothered wearing wrist watches anymore.”

        Man, you make a lot of baseless assumptions centered on your own opinion and those of a handful of others. There is no way to please, so of course VR-headsets won’t be popular with everyone, but that doesn’t mean that it’s a “flawed concept”

        Also, 3D TV’S was a great idea, I know because I own one. You’re just making another baseless assumption.

    • Bankai

      Obviously, the headset would be optimized for the headset, so it shouldn’t have much of a problem running Infamous. Also, Sucker Punch has stated that Infamous will be 30fps, not 60.

  • morbius

    sounds like next years christmas present!!!!!! :)

  • RealityCheck2013

    Not bothered about the VR head set thing. I just want to see New SONY TV’s & Phones & maybe some PS4 stuff(games but it’s not really a games show i suppose) LoL:D

  • Los Illuminados
