Texas PlayStation Blog Meetup(s) This Weekend


Jeff Rubenstein's Avatar Posted by on Mar 07, 2011 // Sr. Social Media Manager

Every time we announce that we’re inviting you fine fans to a PlayStation meetup, we hear back from you, loud and clear: “Why don’t you come to [some city that we aren’t in]?” Many such requests come to us from the great state of Texas, which is understandable, as we’ve never held an event there. That ends this weekend; we’re bringing the show to Austin.

God of War III GDC 2010 Meetup

We’ve rented out a building on the corner of 2nd and Trinity, and we’re converting it to the PlayStation Lounge for SXSW Interactive. We’ll be bringing a lot of unreleased games to show to media during the day. But why let them have all the fun?

So, because sources tell me that things are, indeed, bigger in Texas – we’re holding not one, but two meetups this weekend!

So don’t make any plans for this Friday or Sunday evening, as we’re dying to give you a chance to play Ratchet & Clank All 4 One & Resistance 3, and SOCOM 4, respectively. We’ll also be bringing some great prizes to give out. Attendance is free, as are the refreshments, and you *don’t* need a SXSW badge to join us.

Here’s everything you need to know:

Friday, March 11th 5-8pm (Ratchet & Clank All 4 One and Resistance 3)
Sunday, March 13th 4-7pm (SOCOM 4)

PlayStation Lounge
333 East 2nd St, Austin, TX 78701

You, as long as you’re 18 or older. Bring your ID!

RSVP here (must be 18+) for Ratchet & Clank All 4 One / Resistance 3 and RSVP here for SOCOM 4; you’re welcome to attend both.

We expect big things from our first Texas meetup, and we hope to see you there!
Holler below with any questions.

There’s one dude in that picture who must be at least 50, dressed like he’s 25. The man has nerve, I’ll give him that.

Will there be a Comic Con/San Diego meet-up this summer? Perhaps one that doesn’t require a Comic Con badge (like this one). :D

Dang, I would love to go to this, but I hate having to navigate the crowds of SXSW, not to mention parking :(. Any chance of y’all making it back down for GDC Austin (woops, I mean GDC Online)?

This is awesome Playstation.

Xbox had a SXSW meetup last year that was quite fun and introduced many of us to the awesome LIMBO.

I am up north right now, but I will be heading back into town later this evening to make it to this meetup.

Thanks again Sony.
