Take a tour of our Comic-Con Booth

Jeff Rubenstein's Avatar + Posted by Jeff Rubenstein on Jul 24, 2008 // Sr. Social Media Manager

I have to admit: my first Comic-Con International (this one) is not what I expected. While it’s got everything you’d expect – cosplayers, “limited edition” everything, and, yes, comics – there’s really a lot more. I’d venture to say, even if you’re into videogames and couldn’t care less about comics – this is still the place for you.

As we indicated yesterday, the PlayStation area is where the public gets hands-on access to our upcoming games – many for the first time. Because I know that many of you can’t make it down to San Diego this week/weekend, and because tickets have become rather hard to acquire, I shot this booth tour during yesterday’s “Preview Night.”

Sorry for the “but wait, there’s more!”-style, but if you can make it, we’d love to have you drop by.

BTW, here’s that Sweepstakes URL referenced in the video: http://www.us.playstation.com/ep/promotions/321/?ILC-psblog&PRMO=comicconsweeps08

Even if you can’t make it, you can still try to win a free PS3!

More from Comic-Con tomorrow!

From the contest page you pointed out, what is: PAIN™ Movie Lot?

hmm… maybe it’s just a part of the PAIN Labs upcoming release. But could it be more?

Dear Jeff,

Could you please tell whom ever is in charge of getting PSone Classics on the Store, that we are hungry for more titles and simply jealous that Japan not only has much more titles but gets them on a regular basis. Just to name a few are Gex: Enter the Gecko, Silent Hill, G-Police, R-Type Delta, Need for Speed, Colony Wars, Wipeout XL, Legend of Dragoon, Ehrgeiz. Heres an idea, put a poll on the Store or send it as a message through PS3. Watch the floodgates open wide.

Thank you,

Daniel B.

Jeff one thing I wanted to correct you on from your video… not all refridgerators are “incomplete” without magnets. It is true – my new stainless steel fridge isn’t “backwards compatible” with magnets. Seriously, no magnets work on this thing – so much wasted space.

@rahstar2003,
It’s ok. I think most people picture him as a rodent with a blue hat and yellow scarf. It’s easier that way.

I just need to see a knife attack and a sniper kill AHHHH!

I’m really jealous of anyone who gets one of those awesome LBP bags… Wish I could make it to Comic-Con but it’s just too far away for me to travel right now, there’s always next year though.

Maybe the PAIN Movie Lot is SCEA’s name for the new PAIN replay editor? That’s what satriales tipped me off to over on the playstation.com forums.

So i just pulled a solid snake and climbed in through the vents.
