Get a Grip on E3 at our PlayStation.Blog Meetup

Jeff Rubenstein's Avatar + Posted by Jeff Rubenstein on Jun 02, 2010 // Sr. Social Media Manager

E3: it’s the most important gaming event in the world. But if you’re not part of the games industry – good luck getting in the door!

Well, as we proved last year: we don’t feel that it’s got to be that way. Once again, we’re opening up E3 to our most loyal fans, and you’re invited: I’m happy to announce details for our 3rd annual PlayStation.Blog E3 Meetup.

E3 '09 Meet-up

On Sunday, June 13th from 5:00 p.m. to 7:00 p.m, we’re taking over Ciudad in downtown LA. As usual for these types of events, we’ll have food, games, prizes and the opportunity to mingle with your fellow PlayStation gamers. We’ll also be featuring new and upcoming PSP titles such as Hot Shots Tennis: Get A Grip (we’ll be holding doubles matches for advance copies of the game). And just like last yearthe first 150 people in the door will gain access to our E3 Press Conference, to be held at the Shrine Auditorium the following Tuesday.

If you live in the greater Los Angeles area, or will be visiting during that time, get your serve and smash ready – this will be our best meetup yet!

Now, the all-important details:

Please note – last year intrepid Blog readers started lining up 8 hours before the meetup… so if you want in to our press conference, you might wanna set your alarm ;)

And if you’re not able to make it, we’ve still got you covered. Stay tuned for details on how you can follow along with E3 from wherever you live.

AAAH! That’s me and my bro in the picture! (I’m the baldy)—that’s right peeps we flew in from Montana and camped out :-) Bring your A-Game for campin’ out–we sure as heck are bringing ours again!!!

LOL I will miss Mama’s Hot Tamales—guess my friends and I will have to hit it one other night just to say hi (the meet up was there last year and Mama is an amazing person–so awesome that PlayStation helped her get recognition!)

Last year’s meetup was great, but of course nothing will top the first meetup, was much more intimate with I think only 50 or so people.

Anyway RSVP’d! See you on the 13th! I’ll be in a blue PS Home shirt. :)

Hey Jeff,

What are the odds that this will be happening again next year? I live in Virginia but I have an old friend out near LA I need to go visit sometime and I’d be rushing too much this year to try and make it.

If odds are this will be happening again next year it’d be nice to know, or at least announce it a month in advance so I can finally make it out to a meetup.

Thx
Ramage

Makes me really happy to be one of the Sony loyal when I see events like this…BUT…I’m hoping that in the spring, you won’t leave your fans hanging at PAX East like you did this year. You were in town the night before the convention to show off Move..but no meetups and no presence on the expo floor?
Still love ya, but was disappointed with the lack of presence…we missed you! :)
Keep up the great work.
