Happy 2nd Birthday PlayStation.Blog!

Jeff Rubenstein's Avatar Posted by 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.

f you S-E-G but Congrats Jeff and everyone at the ps blog. been a long time ps fan and my greatest moments have always been single player ps games and local co-op. but as the move into the ps3 happened i became more involved in online multiplayer but also the online community. the blog was something that really helped me get introduced to everything and helped spark my online presence in the ps community. So keep up the good work and can’t wait for the changes that will make it look so 2007.

Congrats PS Blog! I am here everyday and probably 20 times per day on the weekdays! ;)

Always enjoy what you and Chris post!

Oh, and I think we need to have another discussion on hard drive upgrading, I’m at that point and I’d like to see ones people have had luck with and anything to avoid. Thanks! :)

Oh, and any chance we can start purchasing items online (besides the PSP stuff) if we are away from our PS3 for awhile?
Then just download when we get back to it.
Mainly for anything that is on timed release, good to have that option.

Congrats on the second b-day, PS Blog. In dog years, you’re fourteen, pretty much a sixth of the way to expiration.


+ MisterB_66 on June 11th, 2009 at 11:25 am said:

What is inside the Uncharted 2 schwag bag the winners are receiving? Or is it a big surprise?


+ Ennkidu on June 11th, 2009 at 11:34 am said:

Gratz with the 2 years – i’ve been following this blog all the time and its just awesome. I will still be using this blog the most even when i’am from Denmark. The europe blog isn’t a real euro blog only a blog for the biggest euro countries – so it doesn’t really benefit me :P


+ ShotgunSean on June 11th, 2009 at 11:37 am said:

WORD 2 year Birthday ps blog rules HAPPY BIRTHDAY!!!


+ StargamerX on June 11th, 2009 at 11:38 am said:

I think it would be awesome if the PS Blog was integrated in the XMB! Is that a possibility? All Playstation news in one place!


+ BEMO-844 on June 11th, 2009 at 11:54 am said:

Hah, what do you know…it’s my birthday too.

Congrats to all of those who work non-stop on the blog, like Jeff.

It’s still my favorite site for PS news.


+ Delriach on June 11th, 2009 at 12:05 pm said:

2 Questions: How do you spank a website? And how do you spank a website twice?

Happy birthday and I’ve wasted so much time here – thanks for keeping us informed!

Congrats on the b-day PSN you guys/girls workin hard to keep that service up and running are doing great you guys have come a long way since last year when i got my ps3 and it not only looks better but there is more content, and over all is a much better service…..having said that the only REAL problem i have with the PSN and the PS Store is the store isnt updated fast enough. anyone have any insight into this matter, why cant it be updated at 12 midnight as soon as its technicly thursday?


+ ender411 on June 11th, 2009 at 12:48 pm said:

Hey, perhaps we should all be given a present to celebrate PSB’s awesome birhtday!
Can you say God Of War 3 demos?


+ jgb10 on June 11th, 2009 at 1:00 pm said:

Happy birthday! It’s always good to see Sony prevail, and Jeff you do a great job running the blog! When does the PS Store update? It’s map pack 2 time and I see no evidence of an update, very frustrating.

+ jdude95 on June 11th, 2009 at 1:17 pm said:

HAHA Speaking of the 20000 comments reminded me of how mad people got when the ps3 firmware update didn’t go live…I think it was the one for the in game xmb…Good times…good times…Why did you guys delete a bunch of the comments the next morning? WHY?


+ Steven_PSN-14 on June 11th, 2009 at 1:20 pm said:

Hey happy b-day! Just found the blog BTW. :P But IT’S AWESOME! If you could get the working versions of the PSN log in for the forums and the mobile blog… That would be great.
