And We’re Back

Jeff Rubenstein's Avatar + Posted by Jeff Rubenstein on Nov 17, 2008 // Sr. Social Media Manager

Here it is, the redesign of PlayStation.Blog. In addition to being more attractive, we feel that readers will find more of the PlayStation information you’re looking for with less of that tedious “looking.” Please click around, search for older posts through our new category drop down menus, and indulge with the new, super-convenient “All Posts” button. If something doesn’t work, please let us know.

Over the new few hours/days we’ll be working on sorting/organizing some of the categories, so keep that in mind.

So now it’s time for us to kick back (feet on the desk) and rest on our laurels until the end of the yea- oh wait. We’ve got more good things planned (stuff you’ve been specifically asking for) to come, and rather soon. We’ll keep you posted.

OK, back to your regularly scheduled posting.

Like the redisign, i browse this site and the forums a lot.
This is a question off topic, but I wanted to know if there is any way the PS forums could get a Community Manager. There’s a ton of questions/concerns/feedback on the forums which seems to me goes un-noticed. Gamers want to have a voice and I think the forums, like this blog, is a great opportunity for gamers to have interaction with Sony.

@40

Is gears 2 crashing online? I stopped reading other websites awhile back because of their shameless 360 pandering. Would be hilarious if it was but I bet everyone’s trying to sweep it under the rug.

NEwho, PS Blog looks great, I want Killzone 2 NOW, and I have a feeling we all might be getting something nice riiiight around christmas time (home, surprise KZ2 early release, or a slew of PS1 games on PSN). Here’s to wishful thinking!

An edit button for comments would be awesome. Even if it’s a timed one (30-60 seconds to edit your comment.

‘Red posts counter’
I love the recent post section, very easy to find.

wow i didnt press enter and wasnt done with that so i appologize for this double post, but it does make me think, you should add an edit function to our comments.

**i love finally being able to see the older posts though!!, you should switch the older and newer buttons tho, older should be on the right and newer on the left.

seriously, like, def. hahah, like, do that. lol ok thanks. good job on everything else. keep up the awesomeness

Maybe I’m a bit late to posting today but I was out looking for an apartment. New changes are GREAT, The Blog looks so much more Professional. It’s nice to get updates, isn’t it Jeff. It’s very esthetically pleasing to the eyes. Everything is well within reach and the blog doesn’t resemble a jumbled mess anymore. Hey any word on when the Socom Blog gets and update? Also will there be a Playstation Home blog in the future.

Keep up all the great work Guys and Gals of Playstation.

p.s. Home Beta is GREAT!!!!!

I want to see our PSN ID’s be added to our Log In the Playstation BLOG.

Would Save the Pain and Spamming also have a more Private message if we needed to liked back to the Playstation Forms.

So others that are asking for help or need a quick fix that most of us Veterans Can answer.

Man, two years ago i was standing in line to buy my brand spanking new PS3!!! Man time flies! What a great 2 years!

**
New redesign looks great!

everything is working and functional, and nice archives! even a news ticker at the top!
(Jeff- be sure to slip in some random goofiness every 100 or so newslink ticks, just to keep us guessing!)

I did notice the gravatars are alot smaller now, it’s kind of hard to actually see them unless you are right in front of the screen, and now that we can post via the PS3 with no problems, could we make em a bit larger again so we can see em on the screen across the room?

I kind of recognize alot of people here by their gravatars..

anyhoo- GREAT JOB to all involved!!

it’s like a fresh coat of paint and some new appliances for my home away from home (since i didn’t get in the beta)

lol!

:)

I keep getting an “Invalid Username” error whenever I try to login via my PS3 :(

By the way, another feature that would be cool: (not neccessarily through the PSB) PSN messaging by computer :)

Oh yeah, i don’t really know that much about WordPress, so forgive my noobness, but is it possible to skin wordpress, like on some forums?

then we could choose which version to load by saving cookies when we log in?

I love the blog, don’t get me wrong, but it would be neat to have seasonal themes, or game-specific skins..

or just some new colors? it is kinda color-deficient now, BUT it is easy to read, and that is the main thing, right?..

anyway, just another idea!
