I’m back to give you the scoop on PlayStation’s presence at X Games 13, which was this past weekend in Los Angeles. As part of our sponsorship, we were on-site with the PlayStation Experience truck, where players were able to get up close and personal with our upcoming line-up for the PlayStation 3 including Ratchet & Clank: Tools of Destruction, and Heavenly Sword. Motorstorm and Tony Hawk: Project 8 were also on hand, and are still hugely popular! It was a really great event, and more than 5,500 people came on board the truck to play! Check out some of the pics below and via our Flickr page.
Congrats go out to Shaun White for taking home the gold in Skateboard Vert! After owning gold in snowboarding at the Winter X Games, Shaun is now the only two-season, board sport X Games champion of all time!
If you were watching TV or reading any newspaper this weekend, you no doubt heard about Jake Brown. During the Skateboard Big Air Finals, Jake Brown went up off the quarter pipe at the end of the mega ramp, lost control of his skateboard and fell 50 feet. He fell incredibly hard, but thankfully was able to get up and walk away!
Congrats to all of the participants and this year’s winners! We’ll see you next time we have the PlayStation Experience truck at one of these events and be sure to report back.
