Orlando PlayStation.Blog Meet-up Details

Jeff Rubenstein's Avatar + Posted by Jeff Rubenstein on Sep 19, 2008 // Sr. Social Media Manager

UPDATE: The Facebook event page – which was inexplicably down for a bit – is back up. RSVP now!

Don’t let me hear that the East Coast gets no love from us.

As mentioned earlier, I’ll be attending a blogging conference in sunny Orlando next week, and I’d like to meet you well-tanned PlayStation fans. Here are the details – we’ll be meeting up next Friday (September 26th) from 7-9 pm near downtown (*not* Downtown Disney!) at UCF’s FIEA – the awesome videogame grad school program that they’ve got going on down there.

FIEA - UFC, Orlando, FL

We’ll be playing games competitively (yes, for prizes) and enjoying real southern BBQ, with sweet tea by the gallon. Mmmmmm, sweet tea…

FIEA people will also be around to answer questions – so if you’ve never seen a mo-cap studio before, this could be your big chance.

Afterwards, we’ll be conveniently located near the downtown bar ‘n’ club area, so I’m sure there’ll be some spillover as well. I’m a big fan of I-Bar, personally.

All you need to do is, um, show up. Yes, of course it’s free. RSVP at playstationblogorlando@gmail.com or on our Facebook event page, so we know how much pork to pull.

OK, the above, summarized into blurb form:

    Orlando PlayStation.Blog readers’ meet-up
    Friday, September 26, 7-9 pm local time
    Florida Interactive Entertainment Academy
    500 W Livingston St
    Orlando, FL 32801
    USA, Earth

Don’t forget to RSVP – see you there!

This is sweet you remembered us poor Floridians, I take back all the mean things I said Jeff. Well most of them.

Good news is my Sister goes to FIEA and I should be picking her up from class that evening too ^^. Also plan on going there for grad school (go me).

*runs to mark calendar*

Should we bring our PSP’s?!

BTW EA paid for that MoCap studio ^^.

So excited ^^. *chills*

Besides, I’m still a bit pissed about my lack of Home Beta invite problem. But I’m lovig Life With PlayStation. Just add more cities. Like Reno, NV and Detroit, MI, for example.

if anyone could arrange for a monitor on top of a headless mannequin, i would be glad to be there via webcam, eeirly projected onto the frankensteinain, er, fritosteineian visage..

but i won’t be able to taste the sweet, sweet tea…

such are the sacrifices we make,

you take the good, you take the bad,

you take them both,

and there you have..the facts of life!

sorry, too much sweet long island iced tea.

it’s pretty sweet, too!

Awesome! I’ll definitely go for sure. Live in the Southern Orlando area, just a 10-20 minutes or so drive to the UCF campus. I’ve been there a couple of times, however I’ve never actually had the chance to see what they actually teach at the college. So it will be an interesting experience indeed, never actually seen a MoCap studio in person myself…

Thank you Sony for taking the time to come down and visit!
(Hopefully rush hour will be over with by the time the event goes on..doubt it, but I hope it will…

Oh dear, I lol’d at that one.

I think with the PS4, we need to have some smell-o-vision add on for Home2.

If this idea is used, I need a Home 2 beta invite to make sure it’s done right. :P

Great to see that you guys are indeed going East, the E3 meetup was cool so I’m sure this will be great as well. Obviously cannot make it to this one seeing as I live near Los Angeles, but just letting anyone who can make it know that it’s totally worth the effort to go!

Completely unrelated Jeff, but can you get on the blower to SCEE?

Or Shuhei Yoshida?

That Eight Days footage looks unbelievable! Bring it back!

I kid, but it is a shame and I hope the tech gets used elsewhere.

I also hope there’s a meetup somewhere near London eventually.

Im sure Orlando is great and we appreciate you coming out to the East Coast but, i’m sure most of us were talking about the boston to D.C. area. And New York City would be the best bet cause its in between and cause its the center of the universe, lol…

have fun though…
