Join Us: Play PS Vita in Atlanta, Boston, Chicago, Miami, NYC Next Week

Jeff Rubenstein's Avatar + Posted by Jeff Rubenstein on Jan 10, 2012 // Sr. Social Media Manager

Last month, we threw open the doors to a San Francisco location where gamers could just walk right in and go hands on with PlayStation Vita. The reaction was rapturous, but why should California get all the love? Frankly, I think the Golden State is starting to get a little spoiled.

Starting next week, Vita Hill Social Clubs are opening in five of America’s great cities, and we’ll be holding grand opening meetups in all of them:

Tuesday, January 17th

Chicago (click here to RSVP)
1444 N. Milwaukee Ave
Your host: Jeff Rubenstein from PlayStation.Blog

Miami (click here to RSVP)
749 Washington, Miami Beach
Your host: Rey Gutierrez from PlayStation.Blog

New York City (click here to RSVP)
154 Stanton St.
Your host: Sid Shuman from PlayStation.Blog

Wednesday, January 18th

Atlanta (click here to RSVP)
800 Peachtree St.
Your host: Rey Gutierrez from PlayStation.Blog

Boston (click here to RSVP)
579 Massachusetts Ave, Cambridge
Your host: Sid Shuman from PlayStation.Blog

All meetups start at 5.30pm local time, ending at 8.30pm. Attendees will feast on free food and beverages, have unfettered access to a dozen PS Vita titles, and enter for chances to win PlayStation prizes. PlayStation.Blog’s design guru Rey Gutierrez even whipped up a special T-shirt for the occasion, which will go to the first 100 people to show up to each meetup. So, you know, don’t be late.

These new Social Clubs are opening in addition to the existing location in San Francisco. We’ll also be opening Social Clubs in Austin, TX and the L.A. area soon. Click here for all locations, addresses, and hours of operation.

Be sure to RSVP to let us know you’re coming (ATL BOS CHI MIA NYC). Hope to see you next week!

Hey If I get the Vita with the 3G AT&T service, do I need an AT&T plan?

Wait, so is this free? Like anyone can go right? I could make a trip down to Boston to get my hands on the Vita and see if I like it or not, because believe it or not, I could potentially buy one when it comes out … along with Katamari a week later of course :)

I’d also like to get my hands on one of them t-shirts :P

So, we’re S.O.L. if we’re a PlayStation fan and we don’t live near these five cities? I’m sorry, but I’m not going to leave school and travel 300 miles to Chicago to try Vita. I understand that the PlayStation Blog guys can only be in so many places at once, but I really hope there’s a greater effort to get gamers in on this. I’m looking forward to buying my Vita, which makes this sting a little.

ARRRGG, you guys finally come to FL but it’s in the worst most southern part. You should have gone to Orlando or Daytona. Everyone can pass through to there. Miami is a 4 hour drive >.<.

FINALLY! AN EVENT IN MIAMI! WOOOOOOO!

My only concern: It says to RSVP but the only way we can do so is through FB. Do we HAVE to RSVP in order to attend the event or be eligible for prizes and so on? I ask because I do not have a FB and simply can not and will not get one.

Hey Jeff or Sid, can we still try out the Vita at the locations after the grand opening events, because I really want to drive down over the weekend to Miami to get my hands on it!

So while going from Miami to New York… Stop by charlotte! We got the democratic convention showing up so were a big enough city for Sony to show the Vita!

+ nutellapr on January 10th, 2012 at 7:44 pm said:

So Xperia Ion announced and screen resolution is far superior to Vita with a smaller screen and a 12M pixel camera. I just don’t get Sony’s product strategy. So inconsistent. Still operating like many different companies with standalone products that don’t really share very much DNA. How do you expect developers to deal with that kind of variety?

Sid, i think he was asking if we had to have a contract for the 3g service or if we just buy cards from month to month with the amount of data that we want for said month.

Whenever you decide to hold Canadian meet-ups, please make sure you give some advance heads up.
A week or two would be preferable.

The last Toronto event left me disapointed because I was scheduled to work.
That and the middle of nowhere thing, that didn’t help either.
