This Friday in SF: Experience PlayStation Move, Win Prizes and Lounge in Kevin Butler’s Office

Jeff Rubenstein's Avatar + Posted by Jeff Rubenstein on Sep 14, 2010 // Sr. Social Media Manager

As you know, the PlayStation Move will be available this weekend, and to help give you a preview of the fun times ahead, we’ve set up “PlayStation HQ” locations in cities throughout the U.S. so you can get some hands-on time with the games before launch.

I haven’t had a chance to drop by and prop my feet on Kevin Butler’s desk, so I’m planning to rectify that this Friday. Why don’t you join me? I promise to bring along pizza, schwag, and even some PlayStation Move bundles and software to raffle off to those who visit.

San Francisco store front

The cool thing about these venues is, we’re granting hands-on time with some of these Move-enabled games that most people have never tried. Here’s the title list for Friday night’s meet-up:

Plan to arrive early, as we only have space for about 200 friends. You can RSVP here.

The details:

Friday, September 17
Location: 658 Market Street, San Francisco
Time: 6 – 9 pm
RSVP: on Facebook

What do you like on your pizza?
Hope to see you there!

Totally digging those Move pillars by the doors. Wish I could go check them out first hand, but the next time I visit San Fran won’t be until November, and even then it’ll be just for a weekend.

How about swinging back up by Seattle? Pax was sold out before I even knew about it!

OMG OMG OMG OMG OMG… *takes deep breath* OMG OMG OMG… Do I call in sick or make up an excuse to leave work early and drive to San Francisco? I mean, it’s only a 2 1/2 hour drive from Fresno, where I live. What do I do!? I really want pizza and I really want to play these games with Move, especially LBP2.

@Jeff

I said it in another post but, there are a lot of people in the middle of the country that would like to attend one of these events. We have a Sony Style in the Cherry Creek (#1 shopping tourist attraction ok the county) mall that would be happy to host corpo reps. I even believe there is an DOS office downtown. You could totally write it off as business for the blog by checking in with them on current and upcoming projects. Let me know what I can do to make it happen.

If you need to save budget money to put one of these events on in Denver you are welcome to stay with my wife and I.

Sincerely,
RedGiant17

I’m in Oregon, I know that’s a lot closer than the east coast but its still a helluva drive (which costs a lot of money these days). I really wish I could go It would be cool if you guys had some kind of event in Portland, or even better Eugene, someday.

I have a Move Sports Champions bundle and an extra move controller preordered. I’m really excited for MAG, Under Siege, Heavy Rain, Time Crisis Razing Storm, Socom 4, Killzone 3, The Fight, and possibly Resident Evil 5 Gold and maybe even Eyepet, I hear good things about that one. By the way Under Siege looks awesome, I personally think it should get a retail release. And I hope you guys have a sword/hack and slash/RPG type Move game in the works! Maybe Demon’s Souls 2 with Move? Now that would be awesome.
