PlayStation @ PAX

Natalie Behrman's Avatar + Posted by Natalie Behrman on Aug 27, 2008 // 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.

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

+ 001 on August 27th, 2008 at 4:14 pm said:

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*

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.

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.
