In what is quickly shaping up to be a busy month for PlayStation VR, Sony has confirmed that the new hardware will be present at SXSW 2016.

Featuring hands-on demos, the event will be held on both March 17 and March 18, with the official word from Sony describing the press showcase as so: “We’ll have the latest PS VR demos in Austin at PlayStation House – a hub of innovative technology in entertainment, sound, and gaming, along with live performances from the next generation of rising stars.”

Shortly beforehand, expect Sony to take the stage at GDC 2016 for a PlayStation VR press event on March 15. It is here we expect to finally learn of a release date and price point for the head-mounted device. 

SXSW 2016 runs from Friday, March 11 through March 19. In the meantime, you can get the lowdown on all the nominees for the festival’s Gaming Expo.
