If you’re heading to PAX Prime this week, it will pay to make PlayStation your first destination. Pick up a PlayStation Passport at any PlayStation booth and then check out all five featured PlayStation titles to get your passport stamped and entered into a daily sweepstakes to win collectible prizes, including:
- Autographed UNCHARTED 3 posters
- Autographed Twisted Metal action figures
- Ratchet & Clank action figures
- Resistance 3 action figures
- PS3 Bluetooth headsets courtesy your friends Starhawk and more
Random winning tickets will be drawn at the PlayStation area at 1:00pm and 5:00pm Pacific Time each day of the show. The PlayStation booths won’t be hard to find, but here’s a simple map if you count yourself among the spatially challenged:
Read on to learn what you’ll get at the PAX PlayStation booth. Keep in mind that the swag options listed here will only be available while supplies last, so you’ll want to move fast!
Stop by the booth for a chance at a limited-run ICO t-shirt (featuring the game’s logo on the back) or a limited-run Shadow of the Colossus shirt (with the game’s Japanese logo on the back). I’m told that the t-shirts will be available in very limited quantities.
The ICO tee will be given out at 10:30am and 2:00pm on Friday (8/26), and the Shadow of the Colossus t-shirt will be given out at 10:30am and 2:00pm on
Sunday Saturday (8/27). Make sure you’re there when the PAX team busts out the boxes, because these shirts will go fast.
The Twisted team is bringing 14 multiplayer stations, a new game mode called “Hunted,” and a new level set on the Thrills & Spills Amusement Park. Play the demo and you’ll walk away with a PAX-exclusive latex Sweet Tooth mask (while supplies last, natch). Truly devoted PAXgoers can also get a shot at an ultra-limited-edition Twisted Metal t-shirt by visiting the Twisted Metal booth while wearing a Sweet Tooth clown costume. Only dedicated fans need apply!
In other news, Twisted Metal creator David Jaffe is serving as the 2011 PAX Prime keynote speaker. On Saturday, he’ll stop by the Twisted Metal booth for autograph signings. Bring those rare copies of the original Twisted Metal!
Grab your friends and some props before snapping a Ratchet & Clank-themed box art photo. The team will also be handing out free Ratchet, Qwark, Clank or Dr. Nefarious hats (while supplies last) to anyone who comes by to check out the game at the PlayStation booth. Check ‘em out below:
Here’s the twist: Come back to the booth with three friends while wearing all four hats (All 4 One!) and you’ll score your choice of these sweet t-shirts:
Be sure to share pictures of yourself with our PAX event team at @HeyPlayStation on Twitter. Protip: Tag your photo Tweets with #ratchetpax you might just get something cool in return…
The Chimeran infection plunges into the heart of PAX with the final public showing of Resistance 3 before September 6th. After trying out the game, you can become a part of the Resistance in the Polite in Public photobooth and get a themed photo taken with a Joseph Capelli outfit and a Marksman rifle prop. You can share your photos online with your friends and the PAX event team at @HeyPlayStation on Twitter. Tag them with #resistancepax so we can keep track of everyone who came by to see us!
You can also get a shot at a limited-edition Resistance 3 t-shirt by visiting the booth, but make sure you swing by early as supplies are highly limited. Even if you don’t get a shirt, you’ll be able to take on your friends in Resistance 3’s multiplayer, or try out the PlayStation Move sharp shooter support in the campaign mode.
One of the most anticipated shooters of 2012 invades PAX with multiplayer action set in outer space. Stop by the booth to try out 5 vs. 5 Capture the Flag: Everyone who plays will get a chance to walk home with a limited-edition Starhawk t-shirt while supplies last. Supply willing, you can also get your hot little hands on a Starhawk / UNCHARTED 3 swag bag that you can fill up with your various and sundry PAX goodies. Emmett Graves’ massive pistol will also be on-site for photo opportunities.
Naughty Dog’s Arne Meyer tells me that PAXgoers will experience a custom-built UNCHARTED theater showcasing an exclusive single-player demonstration designed only for PAX attendees. As you exit the theater, you’ll go hands-on with two new multiplayer maps for UNCHARTED 3: Drake’s Deception – “Desert Village” and “The Highrise.” The Dogs will be handing out a limited number of PAX Prime 2011 exclusive t-shirts each day along with PAX Prime 2011 exclusive PlayStation Store voucher cards redeemable for either a multiplayer character torso item or a mystery weapon skin. You’ll also get a sneak peek at the upcoming UNCHARTED 3: Drake’s Deception Collector’s Edition for the first time anywhere.
Finally, as part of the PlayStation Passport program at PAX, six lucky raffle winners will receive a limited-edition UNCHARTED poster featuring the cover art from our upcoming comic book. These six posters are truly rare collectibles: they’re each signed by the dev team behind UNCHARTED 3.
