Kyle Moffatt's Avatar + Posted by Kyle Moffatt on Aug 26, 2009 // Senior Public Relations Specialist, Sony Computer Entertainment Canada

Hi Everyone! Huge news for Canadian gamers attending Fan Expo this weekend at the Metro Toronto Convention Center:

Fan Expo Canada2

PlayStation Canada is attending the show in a massive way this year offering attendees the chance to get some hands-on time with a few major first party blockbuster titles. PLAYABLE the first time in Canada will be on the PSP Jak & Daxter: The Lost Frontier and for PlayStation 3, Uncharted 2: Among Thieves, Buzz Quiz World, Ratchet & Clank Future: A Crack in Time and God of War III. Be sure to stop by our booth this weekend so you can play these top titles well in advance of their release. Also if you are planning to attend the show on Saturday, be sure to check out the panel discussion featuring the host of Electric Playground Victor Lucas and SCEC’s own Matt Levitan at 4 PM.

We’ll be giving away plenty of prizes and tons of swag throughout the weekend so be sure to come see us when you are at the show. This will be your only chance to play Uncharted 2: Among Thieves, Ratchet & Clank Future: A Crack in Time, Jak & Daxter: The Lost Frontier and God of War III before release so don’t miss out!

For those not familiar of this show (now in its 15th year), Fan Expo brings together all that’s new and great in the five genres: Comics, Anime, Science Fiction, Horror and Gaming. See you there.

+ EVanHelsing on August 26th, 2009 at 12:04 pm said:

So the only thing NOT playable in Canada is the video store?


31

+ THE_LIGHT_05 on August 26th, 2009 at 12:05 pm said:

I know it’s off topic but…

I have a problem. it has nothing to do with this.
it’s about trophies. i downloaded the super stardust HD demo and all of a sudden i look in my trophies to find super stardust HD even though i don’t own it.

I wanna get rid of it. is it possible?


32

+ cornagandarub on August 26th, 2009 at 12:07 pm said:

@16 lmao yea


33

+ poodude on August 26th, 2009 at 12:08 pm said:

I didn’t even know this was going on and I live near Toronto. And @ 31 I totally agree that same thing happened to me. The stardust trophy list just sits there.


34

+ Kchow23 on August 26th, 2009 at 12:10 pm said:

@31 I think that if you delete the Super Stardust HD demo, the trophies will go away too… not sure though


35

+ Kchow23 on August 26th, 2009 at 12:11 pm said:

Correction… NOT DEMO, but the saved file… and again not 100% on it


36

+ Grondinm on August 26th, 2009 at 12:17 pm said:

damn now is when i wish i lived close to Toronto…kinda 2 far to go from new-brunswick(money wise anyways) have a great show guys. any big announcements for us Canadians?


37

+ MiltonMafia on August 26th, 2009 at 12:20 pm said:

Who said nickelback. That’s disgusting dude.

I live near Toronto and had no idea as well. They need to promote this thing better. All I hear about is the CNE.


38

+ piro_z on August 26th, 2009 at 12:22 pm said:

I hope there will more canadian announcements & if only thunder bay was closer to Toronto =(


39

+ klubjunkee on August 26th, 2009 at 1:01 pm said:

*rubs eyes* SCEC news?!?

I’ll drop by to get some hands on with GOW3.

Also, I’m going to ask again if the Video Store is coming. I know, I know… It’s been asked like a Trillion times but what’s one more just to show that the question won’t go away till someone at Sony answers.

Heck, I’ll even settle for news of a contest that isn’t US exclusive.

+ RaymondBel on August 26th, 2009 at 1:02 pm said:

I guess not even Canadians read the Playstation Canada website… oh, right… we don’t have a blog there!!!

Any chance you come to Chilliwack, BC?

+ geekdadcanada on August 26th, 2009 at 1:04 pm said:

The announcement of the Canadian Video store, complete with “Littlest Hobo”, “Beach Comers” and “King of Kensington”.

SCEC, this is amazing news!! I was planning to attend the Expo this weekend in order to enjoy everything besides gaming (typically the video game representation is very weak), but I’m going to be buzzing around the Playstation booth non-stop now!!! If I can get any quality time with Uncharted 2, Gow3 and Ratchet, I’m going to be one lucky Canadian gamer! (Usually we don’t get to see any of these pre-release demos north of the border)

See you guys this weekend!

“This will be your only chance to play… God of War III before release so don’t miss out!”

You mean SCE isn’t having another swanky Holiday event in the Distillery District this year? If they are, I WANT IN!!! Please…

+ Jeigh on August 26th, 2009 at 1:36 pm said:

Hurray for Canadia, home of the Fightin’ Canadans! =P

Really wouldn’t matter even if I did live near there- I just never really get to any of these types of events. Hell, there’s one in Seattle if I understand it correctly, but it’s sold out well over a month in advance. Don’t suppose you’ll be holding any events in my living room in the near future…

If there is a lick of truth this revolving in game sound tracks and cross game chat on PS3 then I’m all for Sony telling said company to shove it. I don’t care if said company is Square, Konami, Namco, or any other they can go take a flying leap off the deep end. 3rd Parties should not be dictating Sony PS3 policy in regards to the firmware. I don’t care how powerful they are, I don’t care if they are EA. Kick this company to the curb and move on.

+ mani8387 on August 26th, 2009 at 2:29 pm said:

How about some news on when Canada can expect to have some access to downloading movies? I’ve been waiting for us to get this service since it was announced at E3, what? 2 years ago? Still no word.


49

+ Lokiroo420 on August 26th, 2009 at 2:48 pm said:

Who is holding back the PSN? Give us the companies name, and Ill take ‘em behind the shed and put ‘em down. I will ask in every post about this until we have some answers!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
