Last year, Sony held its own video game conventions for fans in Las Vegas called the Playstation Experience. There, the company released a bevy of new information regarding upcoming games like No Man's Sky and showed off the first Uncharted 4 gameplay.

Well, as they announced on their official blog Aug. 14, Sony's doing it again.

PlayStation Experience is officially a go for 2015! The epic two-day PlayStation community event is back, relocating to sunny/foggy/windy San Francisco this December 5th and 6th.

What can you expect this year? For starters, a ton of hands-on time with 2015 and 2016's biggest games, plus a front-row seat for major PlayStation announcements. Plus some of those patented PlayStation surprises you've come to expect.



They're even lowering prices a little less than last year, with early bird two-day tickets running $60 while available. Those tickets are on sale now and can be purchased here.

Let's call him courageous writer Shivam Bhatt stole some time at the 2016 Game Developer's Conference held in San Francisco to chat with Blizzard Co-Founder David Brevik during a Q&A about Diablo

Bhatt carpe'd that diem and confessed to Brevik that he pirated the game almost two decades ago, offering up some cash on the spot for his transgression. Not only did Bhatt pretty much get rewarded with the most surreal reaction possible--Brevik taking a pic with him:

He even got a shoutout on Twitter from Brevik about the incident as well.
