Help Us Help You: Take the PlayStation.Blog Survey

Jeff Rubenstein's Avatar Posted by on Jan 30, 2009 // Sr. Social Media Manager

Hey there, PlayStation.Blog reader! You may have noticed the addition of Chris Morell to our staff in December. If not, I encourage you to head over to his Flower interview and giggle at the freeze-frame there. It’s OK, I’ll wait.

There, wasn’t that worth it?

Besides making faces for the camera, Chris has enabled us, your PlayStation Social Media Team, to think a bit more expansively. We want to do more with our existing Facebook and Twitter accounts. We want to produce more video (and audio?) content for the Blog. Basically, to do more of the stuff that you like, and to do the things you already like, only better.

But what, exactly, *do* you like? That leads us the the first ever PlayStation.Blog Readers Survey. We’ve crafted together a fairly short web survey to ask you about your experience with the Blog, and a tiny bit more about your larger interactions with PlayStation. Don’t worry, there are no uncomfortable questions like “How much money do you make in a year?” or “How did you do on your SATs?” or “Really that’s it? Don’t you think you should’ve studied more?” Rather, the questions will be used directly to craft new content and, perhaps, new applications that you will love from Day 1.

PlayStation.Blog Reader Survey

Please click here to start the survey. You’ll be redirected to another site, but you will *not* be asked *any* personal information (not even an email address), and you will not be spammed, harassed, or made fun of in any way for having too few Trophies. And if you don’t want to answer the questions that don’t have an asterisk next to them (about half), you don’t even have to.

Thanks in advance, and I hope you have a great weekend!

Maybe if the PSN sign in ID was useful, you would know the questions to the BS you just asked. Like I track how much I play a day.


+ ClinToN on January 30th, 2009 at 6:16 pm said:

JKC31…right smart guy because your PSN ID can answer and comment on surveys for you. :|

My goodness, some of you…

Eh, the recession is happening because no one is lending really, and no one is buying. If you want to talk real economics, the recession is not some massive crisis, it’s a $10 word meaning somewhere, some guy said “Let’s lower this set value”. It’s bad for corporations, and we in america have a massive need to feed/live by these corporations, so we panic.

Don’t throw recession crap around. If we spent more money, and then there would be more money to make, more jobs, etc. Money IS Debt. That is how our economy works. If you didn’t have college debt, the college wouldn’t have jobs, and the college wouldn’t exist, and neither would your education, etc, etc etc etc etc.


I’m a programmer married to a CPA. So, common logic, and a little bit of research can keep you from labeling a “rough” time with a word you don’t understand and thus all of society blaming a random word for all of it’s problems.

I’m getting the card, and I’m buying a second PS3. These people writing this blog, and programming my games work hard. And they deserve the money, as that PS3, and the interest earned from the card, pays their paycheck.

Go Blog team! I read you daily via RSS!

Thanks Jeff.

Filled in the survey as you asked.

Glad you’re looking to improve things and glad you take our suggestions.

Keep up the good work.

if this site had i forum it would be awesome


+ BlackIceJoe on January 30th, 2009 at 6:28 pm said:

I know this was not the kind of Survey but I really was wanting to be able to say what kind of games I would like to see on PSN, PS3 & PSP. I really want a new Colony Wars game and a new Legend of Dragoon.

Plus I would have liked to have been able to say things I want to get out of gaming but this was for the blog and the ideas you guys had are pretty cool.


+ TopherTide on January 30th, 2009 at 6:33 pm said:

Always a pleasure to have the opportunity for feedback…thanks….


+ crustySox on January 30th, 2009 at 6:35 pm said:

Survey done…. Jeff, will we here about any of the results here on the blog?


+ DryvBy on January 30th, 2009 at 6:37 pm said:

Done, and I hope more people suggested Polls for firmware updates that we want (like multi-user logins)

+ NUD3_br on January 30th, 2009 at 6:56 pm said:

How about just turning the excelent PS Nation podcast into the OFICIAL PlayStation (PSB) podcast ?



+ psnbakaotaku on January 30th, 2009 at 6:57 pm said:

I think this survey is a huge improvement in term of creating a relationship with PlayStation players. Good job, Sony.


+ Squall2600 on January 30th, 2009 at 7:11 pm said:

Great survey. Hope people take this seriously and don’t just answer with a bunch of nonsense.


+ CrimsonFox13 on January 30th, 2009 at 7:20 pm said:

Well, I suggested somethings I’d like to see online in general that are Playstation related, and not really that I wanted in the blog… Heh.


+ edwineverready on January 30th, 2009 at 7:22 pm said:

please also make a survey about the psn. that would give you a lot of info what people want. thanks


+ Torgo on January 30th, 2009 at 7:26 pm said:

Done. The things that Jeff makes me do…..


+ ProwlingFox on January 30th, 2009 at 7:32 pm said:

Surveys are good. I said that we should have an “Ask Jeff” section on the blog ;D

Good survey glad to take it!


+ P3nguin_pris0N on January 30th, 2009 at 7:41 pm said:

Thanks for giving us a voice, Jeff. And for letting us hear yours.


+ Fenix on January 30th, 2009 at 7:55 pm said:

When it asked what new things we’d like to see on the blog, since it is now an extension of the PSN I asked for avatars ;)

Also I forgot to mention I like when devs actually reply to questions on the blog. Its the devs that post and leave I don’t pay much attention to.


+ Twinturbo120 on January 30th, 2009 at 7:56 pm said:

DONE. Nice and straight forward


+ eddieMX07 on January 30th, 2009 at 7:57 pm said:

Hey Jeff

I took the blog survey and it was quite easy to complete compared to other paid online surveys I completed. Now I am wondering when you guys will have a Playstation Network survey. I would like to take one because their is a lot of more more improvements. If I were to take that survey, I would mainly recommend that the Playstation Store offer PayPal as a payment option. Jeff, if you happen to read this comment, I would greatly appreciate if you told me the odds of this happening.

Thanks for listening…


+ Nick212004 on January 30th, 2009 at 8:06 pm said:

Great survey. Can not wait to see how you guys use this feedback.


+ eddieMX07 on January 30th, 2009 at 8:16 pm said:

If you don’t think paid online surveys are real, then you should join a panel called Global Test Market. Right now I am taking a survey from this company that is about the next Call of Duty game. I would tell you guys about it but I agreed to a confidentally clause that does not allow be to share the information I was shown. From what I read so far the game sounds good and might buy it since I am currently playing a lot of first person shooters…


+ RurouniSaiya-jin on January 30th, 2009 at 8:22 pm said:

Neat survey. Liked some of the questions asked like what we would like to see more on the blog, etc.


+ TrueStoryGuy on January 30th, 2009 at 8:23 pm said:

Completed. I’m hoping for an update to allow the Information Board on the PS3 to update with the posts on the PlayStation Blog.


+ Andrefpvs on January 30th, 2009 at 8:35 pm said:

It’s done. I gave away some detailed feedback as well, so hopefully you guys will take your time to read all the suggestions.

Hopefully :P

Hey Jeff, I forgot to add this on the what we want to see on the PSB question!

I would like to see a “Poll of the day” on the right side of the PSB :)

Thanks in advance!
