Chris Morell's Avatar + Posted by Chris Morell on Mar 02, 2010 // Senior Social Media Specialist

UPDATE: The quiz is officially closed, and winners will be notified via email. Thanks to everyone who submitted!

There’s this PS3 game. It’s called Final Fantasy XIII. Maybe you’ve heard of it? Yeah, well if so, you’ll definitely be interested to know that we’ve worked with Square Enix to secure 100 very exclusive invites to the Final Fantasy XIII Launch Event in San Francisco. That’s right, 50 of you (plus a guest) will have the chance to mingle it up and play Final Fantasy XIII the day before it hits stores on March 9. It’ll be an afternoon of Final Fantasy where you’ll also get special fan treatment, browse a gallery of stunning artwork, check out some cool videos and meet the development staff. There are also some fantastic raffle prizes up for grabs.

WHEN: This coming Monday, March 8, 2010 (one of two afternoon sessions)
WHERE: San Francisco

Of course, we want genuine FF fans to attend, so we’re not going to simply give these tix away. But if you’re free and can be in the city of San Francisco this coming Monday afternoon and you are 18 years of age or older, take our quiz! If you’re one of the first to answer the questions correctly, we’ll send you your will-call tickets and all the info you’ll need to get to the complete Final Fantasy XIII Experience. And if you’re really quick and over 21 years old, then 5 of you (plus one guest) will be granted access to a super exclusive Final Fantasy XIII VIP event that night! Ready?

TAKE THE QUIZ NOW!

    Ouch! I don\’t feel sorry for you, though. New York is awesome, sans the Yankees.

Sony for the love of god stop going to SF, NY, and other big cities! Hit up the smaller places too once in a while. What about Texas? Minnesota? Vermont? Washington DC? Those places have huge collages and you could get huge turn outs for your products rather then just small numbers of hardcore fans.

    For what it\’s worth – this is a Square Enix party. We just asked if we could get PlayStation fans in, and they obliged.

I’m only halfway done with Final Fantasy 13 and I have had the damn game since December. It’s pretty, but something about it just doesn’t grip me to put in long gaming sessions like other RPG’s. I do plan an finishing it though.

@Gunwing
Sony hasn’t done anything in NYC dude. Get your facts straight. Don’t you see people on this blog always asking for an event in NYC?

This sounds really cool–but we (my bro, mom and I) live in MT and we’re saving up to come to the PS Blog Meetup at E3 :-) We already got confirmed for E3 itself so yeah, this year’s fun money is going towards that hehe!

Still–cool you guys scored tickets! Could you run the quiz again for people who can’t make it and let those people win swag? I want to take it to see how I rank as a FF fan, but I don’t want to enter a contest I know I can’t accept the prize in!

I will be in San Francisco, for the GDC, but guess what, my plane tickets are for Tuesday morning. I even have a hotel room starting Monday, but I bought my plane ticket a month ago. =(

Had to put a “No” in my quiz. Now I’m sad.

I’m still waiting for my confirmation. I seriously hope I can get in because I’m willing to drive all the way from the Los Angeles County to San Francisco for this event! Plus, I have the GDC 2010 to look forward to that same week!!

A big thanks to everyone at the playstation blog for allowing fans to attend this event. You guys are awesome (infinity+1), lol.

Great advertising job by the way, but I think you mixed up the logo at the end… Oh, wait, that was for the OTHER system that they were advertising.

I look forward to picking up a cheap, second-hand copy sometime in the indefinite future.
