Jeff Rubenstein's Avatar + Posted by Jeff Rubenstein on Jul 18, 2011 // Sr. Social Media Manager

We’re gearing up for a full slate activities at San Diego Comic-Con 2011 and we wanted to give you a sneak peek at our schedule for the show, since we’re hoping you’ll be a part of it.

CCILogo-NEW-Hi-Res

As you might expect, we’ll be demoing the latest content from our upcoming titles at our booth on the show floor (#4237). Come check out our booth and go hands-on with games including Resistance 3, Starhawk, UNCHARTED 3: Drake’s Deception, Journey, Twisted Metal and more.

For a special treat, we’re busy putting the finishing touches on custom arcade cabinets for Ratchet & Clank: All 4 One that we’ll be unveiling at our booth this week.

That’s a 40″ Sony Bravia 3Dtv with 3D glasses, custom artwork from Insomniac Games and a set of illuminated custom DualShock 3 controllers painted with the colors of Ratchet, Clank, Qwark and Dr. Nefarious! We can’t wait to set this and the 2D model up on the floor. If you’re going to be at the show, be sure to let us know how the cabinets look and tweet a picture to @PlayStation.

Now get out your day planner, as we’ll be hosting a blockbuster lineup of panels throughout the week featuring highly-anticipated titles including UNCHARTED 3: Drake’s Deception, Resistance 3, Twisted Metal, Starhawk and Journey. Here’s a taste of what you can look forward to at our panel sessions:

One of the top five panels I want to go to is actually thatgamecompany’s Journey presentation. Hoping I get in, knowing how lines are to everything. Warhawk/Starhawk panel is also something I’m going to try and check out. I’d love to go to all of them, but there’s so much going on that it’s impossible to see everything.

Can someone Interview Eric Lempel and ask him why no Cross Game Chat all this time and also why the Playstation.Blog.Share is not even addressed any more since the top three items have not even been addressed since it started.

Jeff how about a sneak peek at the schwag that’s sure will be given out at the show. Any chance of giving those less fortunate not being able to attend a chance of winning some here on the blog? I’d give one of my own kidneys to get that R3 t-shirt Marcus Smith was rockin at E3.

@DarkOne_PR…There is no need for a FF7 remake…Why remake a game that is in the middle of a series??? Doesn’t make sense…FF7 isn’t THAT good of a game to reboot…

I am buying EVERY single exclusive listed in the post! Seriously. These are all AAA caliber games. So stoked for all of them. SONY, you’ve been SO good this year. Lets keep ‘em coming.

Resistance 3 is up next and I’m so pumped for it. I’ve already preordered and paid it off (and all the others) bit by bit. I’m not rich by any means. I just go to my local store and pay 10 bucks here, 10 bucks there and POW! They’re suddenly paid off. So excited. I recommend my fellow gamers do the same.

Anyway, hope Comic Con turns out great for you guys. Wish I could go!

I love how two weeks before comic con, Sony pulls the plug on their comic service, and never had it for the PS3.
Another point is making a game out of a comic book is one thing, but you guys have games made into comics.
It kinda like my mother in-law just inviting herself to the party if you know what I mean.
