PlayStation @ PAX

Natalie Behrman's Avatar Posted by Consumer Events Specialist

I know those of you who are attending PAX are seriously competitive gamers. We’re bringing that competition to the PlayStation Booth (#914) this year, so I wanted to give you readers times when you’ll be able to throw-down against your fellow attendees.

PAX Map

For the first time ever, you’ll be able to get your hands on Resistance 2 multiplayer. We’re going to have a number of kiosks for you to jump on anytime and blast away your opponents with a slew of unique weapons in gorgeous environments.

Experience the intense and authentic high definition modern combat action of SOCOM: U.S. Navy SEALs Confrontation in the booth Friday and Saturday/Sunday afternoons.

If racing is more your style, stop by on Friday evening or during Saturday and Sunday mornings to check out Motorstorm: Pacific Rift.

For those of you who like to take your gaming on the go, we’re going to have Resistance: Retribution on hand with its unique targeting system developed especially for PSP; alongside other PSP titles like BUZZ! Master Quiz.

Get discovered in Seattle with your talent or your brains (or both), with SingStar and BUZZ! Quiz TV taking over the main stage. Between sets of singing and trivia excitement, we’ll let you rest with onstage demonstrations of inFamous and level building with LittleBigPlanet.

While most of these games will be continuously playable throughout the three days, we’ll be holding tournaments at the times below to win PlayStation goodies.

    It\’s 5 years old, and has a bigger attendance than E3. Granted, it\’s *different*, but still huge and growing.

TheApprentice said:

@ #7 zezzler….you’re paying more attention this year :P

Wish I could be there…

Aside from the PAX excitement…
Any word on Life With Playstation and or Home Beta?

August 27th, 4:14 pm

I don’t think they’d delay LWP two months in a row, I could only hope it’s arriving soon since the playstation store was down recently and that usually happens before one of Sony’s surprise updates.

And stop teasing us with the Pax photos you know we won’t be able to make it to. :( *sniff sniff*

IceColdKilla44 said:

August 27th, 4:16 pm

August 27th, 4:39 pm

Ha, yeah bigd2510, that would make some REALLY good T.V.

….but those GIANTS….ugh…..

Guess Sony is the RIGHT way to go!

HAHA! Get it? BWAHAHA! *snarf*

You know, the “right” way……

The skull with the M16 in it is that a lion or some kind of 4 legged beast? It’s certainly not a chimera skull.

elfhunter said:

cell989 said:

August 27th, 5:03 pm

Hey Jeff,

Can you comment anything on E FOR ALL. I know its going to be held in LA, so I was wondering if you guys will be holding another KIngTaco event, like the one at E3. Also is PlayStation even going to appear at E for All.

cell989 said:

August 27th, 5:05 pm

THe reason I want to know is because my GF wants me to take her, but Im only going if PlayStation products are going to be shown, and since I have to plan all of this, I want to know if there is anything you can share with us regarding E For All, thanks.

Sony, after LBP comes out can you guys give us a game like Castle Crashers for XBL.

http://xbox360.ign.com/objects/844/844289.html

Also, these events(like PAX) are really cool, but can we get some in the Northeast?!

Canada never gets any love. No events, all contests are open to US residents only and no video store!

saintfighteraqua said:

August 27th, 8:54 pm

Always good to see Singstar getting more exposure at these events!
Please do some arm twisting or serious pep talking with SCEE to get us better updates, better songs, SingStar Queen, SingStar Disney and any other goodies!!
