Happy 2nd Birthday PlayStation.Blog!

Jeff Rubenstein's Avatar + Posted by Jeff Rubenstein on Jun 11, 2009 // Sr. Social Media Manager

With all the shock of an alarm clock jolting us out of our sleep in the middle of the night, we’ve been informed that today, June 11th, is the PlayStation.Blog‘s 2nd birthday.

We’ve been very busy with E3 and stuff, but “Yay!”

PlayStation.Blog launched 2 years ago today to a pretty huge reception. In that time, I think we’ve gone from a “good first step” to a full-fledged social media program, with a robust Facebook community, fun community meetups, and enough Twitter followers to make Jamie Kennedy jealous. Watch out, Shaq, we’re coming for ya.

But in all seriousness, the time does fly, and I think it’s because of our very involved readership (this means YOU) that keeps us motivated and busy. In the last year, we’ve redesigned and added features, spawned a new European brother, survived a 20,000 comment onslaught, and adopted our very own Chris Morell (seriously, he sleeps here at night). And we’re working on some new features and integrations that, a year from now, should make today’s blog look very… 2007.

So, yes, thank you for reading, commenting, @replying, attending, subscribing, and, in general, doing what you’ve been doing to make this site what it is.

OK, that’s enough back-patting, now we’d like to go back to sleep. Er, work.

-Jeff

Happy 2 years PS blog, love to have you guys around. Honistly i check you guys every day when i am doing my website rounds and can’t wait to see all the new stuff that the PS blog brings to us from playstation!!!

I would love to see though a mobile version for the PSP, I have a very hard time accessing the blog from the PSP(to much graphic i assume), than i can have the PS blog with me on the GO!!!

Keep up the awesome work!!!!

*laughs* and remember what Playstation above the rest….. they have a song after them from Eiffel 65. It might be all old school PS games that are mentioned but most of those helped make PS what it is today!!! long live Sony!!!

Shocking that it took two yeard of this blog (almost) before Last Guardian was announced.

Man, if you’d told me, that the game would be revealed when the Playstation Blog turned 2, I’d be so upset. But good work guys!

Happy Birthday Playstation Blog, it’s been two years already dang! Getting old you are ;). Funny how I just had a birthday too and now it’s the blog’s turn, what a day for it too when we are getting a big PSN store update along with VidZone launches today I think from SCEE if I am not mistaken.

Congrats to all and remember to save me a piece of that cake now Jeff :).

You know, I’ve always wondered how many people work on the PS Blog. Either way congrats on 2 years and thank you for providing us with a way to voice our opinions to you and anyone else who has made a post on the PS Blog. There really is no better source for PlayStation information than the PS Blog.
