Follow Friday: PlayStation Edition

Sid Shuman's Avatar + Posted by Sid Shuman on Aug 13, 2010 // Senior Manager, Social Media

Welcome to Follow Friday! In Twitter-Land, #FollowFriday is a cherished tradition — an opportunity to share the love by recommending your favorite personalities to your Twitter followership. We’re taking that concept and expanding it here on the PlayStation.Blog with a comprehensive list of our favorite gaming personalities and organizations every month.

PlayStation.Blog: Follow Friday Header

Today, in our inaugural edition, we’re highlighting the internal PlayStation ecosystem — the studios, personalities, and games that make up PlayStation. In future editions of Follow Friday, we’ll begin to flesh out this list with PlayStation third-party publishers, game developers, writers, and community members. Our goal is to create a definitive directory of the best sources of PlayStation news and discussion.

Got a recommendation for us to include in next month’s edition? Speak your mind in the comments, and we’ll take notes for the next column. Let us know what you think!

Great idea! Would be great to add some 3rd parties in there too to show some love.

    That’s fair feedback, what can we do to make it better? We’ll definitely be fleshing it out with more developers, publishers, and community members next time, but we wanted to start with the PlayStation accounts and grow from there.

This is a great idea :)

How about adding ‘Under Siege’ to the FaceBook listing (Seed Studios):

They also recently updated their site:

There’s a Naughty Dog.com?? WOO!! I follow the blog every day, I don’t (but used) to go to Modnation.com, and only seen Godofwar.com. I love the LBP website! Any ideas on LBP2 demo release dates or beta for LBP2??

I’ve seen a few site that do this, but I hope to see recommendations for community blogs and smaller sites that #FF you on a regular. I have over 1000 followers and I make sure that when you tweet news I RT then asap. :)
@0ldsch00ljunkie and @thesocialgamer

I’ll RT this post as well.!

Great idea. Giving out our requests for features on future games would work great with the developers listening towards the fans.

There is no way to make it better Sid.

Corporations use Facebook and twitter for advertising and nothing more. You have hundreds of thousands of followers/fans who agreed to recieve your spam and respam it to their friends.

Unless you stop using Facebook and Twitter entirly there is no way to make it better. The odd @reply doesn’t improve anything.

    Doesn’t sound like you’re much of a fan of Twitter and Facebook, which is fine. I should also add that readers sharing their favorite Twitter/Facebook/Blog links is a key part of the post. If you don’t like our suggestions, skip ‘em!

This is another great recent addition to the blog.

Perhaps in the future you could provide the details and handles of the key people who’ve been involved in the most recent PS3 releases. Maybe a list of such information could follow a game’s blurb in ‘The Drop’.

It would also be nice to have a follow-up post a week or two after a game’s release saying something like: “Did you enjoy the style of [game title]? Follow the game’s creative director (@handle) and lead artist (@handle). This would be great especially for getting more insight into indie developers, small studios, and talented individuals/teams within large game companies.

I normally don’t check twitter, but last night, I saw Jeff Rubenstein’s tweet on how the ending for Scott Pilgrim looked like they were trying to set up a Scott/Knives ending. I became upset, and proceeded to un-sober myself.
