Want to Meet-Up at GDC 2009?

Jeff Rubenstein's Avatar + Posted by Jeff Rubenstein on Mar 18, 2009 // Sr. Social Media Manager

During the thick of this year’s Game Developers Conference, we’ve set up an area for bloggers/media to drop by, put their feet up, file their stories, play our new and upcoming games, eat our food, get caffeinated, and chat with some of our top developers. Not bad, right?

If I wasn’t working at PlayStation, sounds like something I’d want to attend. So, we figured, why not? Which is why we’re going to open up our PlayStation.Blog.Lounge to our readers and fans during a special GDC Meetup, next Wednesday evening (March 25th, 7-9pm) in San Francisco. BTW, please don’t complain that it’s not at [insert your hometown here] – we don’t run the convention!

PlayStation.Blog readers, fanboys, aspiring bloggers and gamers are all welcome to eat, drink, meet, chat, and maybe even play some stuff that isn’t out yet ;-)

Space is super limited, so you need to click the registration button below to RSVP and let us know you’ll be there:

We hope to see you next week!

PS: BRING YOUR PSP!

COOL! I wish I could go, but since I can’t drive and I have to go to school… It’s an extremely unfortunate no… :(

But, still, it’s a GREAT idea, and believe me, I WILL go to at least ONE of these events! I just have to! lol

@34 – How awesome would a Home Space of GDC be though? I am crossing my fingers they at least have an E3 Home Space complete with trailers, clips, and possibly exclusive access to demos! That would be so incredibly sweet.
