Extreme sports and gaming come together this weekend at Winter X-Games 12!
If you’re going to be in the Aspen/Snowmass, Colorado area through January 27th, you’re invited to stop by the PlayStation tent. This is your chance to play Gran Turismo 5 Prologue; we’re showing new code that has never seen before in the US. What’s more, PlayStation fans will have the opportunity to play directly against some of their favorite X Games athletes.
PlayStation is hosting a hands-on game competition featuring Winter X Games champions Gretchen Bleiler (2007 Winter X Games Gold and Olympic Silver medalist for snowboarding), Simon Dumont (2007 X Games Silver medalist for skiing) and Tucker Hibbert (2007 X Games Gold Medalist for snowmobiling). See if these athletes are as skilled with the SIXAXIS as they are on the hill!
The PlayStation tent will also feature soon-to-be released Pursuit Force: Extreme Justice and futuristic, anti-gravity racer wipEout PULSE. Brand new third party titles Burnout Paradise (along with the PLAYSTATION Eye) and NFL Tour will be playable on PLAYSTATION 3 in the VIP and athlete lounges. Also, PSPs on-site will feature the new Internet Radio functionality via AOL’s SHOUTCast.
Hope to see you there!
