Many PlayStation fans were wondering about a possible livestream of Sony Computer Entertainment’s keynote titled “The World Created by Playstation 4”, that will be held tomorrow as part of the TGS Forum Keynote Address event.

While Sony did not announce any official livestream, the Japanese video portal Nico Nico comes to the rescue with its own livestream of the whole event, that will be available at the following link staring from 10:30 AM Japan Time (you can use this converter to find out the time in your country).

To make things even sweeter, the livestream is described as being in English, even if it’s not specified if it’ll be simultaneously translated or just commented. It’s also possible that the speakers will just address the audience in English, since Nico Nico will provide a simultaneously translated version in Japanese here and the conference is marked with “Interpreting Available” in the official program

The keynote will be hosted by Sony Computer Entertainment CEO Andrew House, Division President of Business Division 1 Masayasu Ito and SCE Worldwide Studio President Shuhei Yoshida, and will provide “detailed specification of the latest system and its exclusive software titles, and the new gaming experience that can be realized with the “Playstation 4” platform.”

The livestream will also include the keynote’s second part, titled “GungHo Online Entertainment: Our Images for Games and Future Directions” and hosted by Gung Ho’s honcho Kazuki Morishita.

If you’re interested, Nico Nico will also offer the same livestream coverage of the following Asia Business Summit, titled “Sudden Rise of the Game Market in Asia ― Exploring Its Full View.” The conference will begin at 1:30 PM Japan Time and will be available at the following link.
