SXSW PS Community Event

Citizens of Austin, Texas! Join PlayStation and several hundred community members on Monday, March 12th at SXSW and enjoy an evening of entertainment with the latest PS3 and PS Vita games.

For the first time ever, we’re letting the PlayStation community get their hands-on PS Vita’s fresh crop of upcoming games: sci-fi shooter Resistance: Burning Skies, musical platformer Sound Shapes, and the mind-bending Gravity Rush. Come extra early, and you’ll walk away with a free copy of Unit 13 and limited edition PS Vita and StarHawk t-shirts (while supplies last). LightBox Interactive will also be on-hand with a rowdy Starhawk tournament, where you’ll be able to win a PS3, a copy of Warhawk, a PlayStation Wireless Stereo Headset…and a copy of Starhawk.

I’m guessing LittleBIGPlanet for Vita isn’t coming before summer at this rate huh? if it’s not coming april I’m going to be so disappointed seeing the 4 main games I wanted were these 4 but still nothing for me ended up with rayman and it’s platinum’d :( (list with issue)
- LittleBIGPlanet (disappeared with no release date)
- ModNation Racers: Road Trip (unresponsive menus, bad and dropping frame rate as in frame drop, & no OMP)
- Gravity Rush (Gotta wait till may, when it was said to be launch window)
- Resistance: Burning Skies (I believe June, I know it wasn’t coming first month but i was hoping the first fps wouldn’t take like 4 months from system release)

Hey do you know if anyone at Sony is working on the Wireless Stereo Headphone fix? What’s the point of giving them away if they don’t work properly? It’s been a whole month.

For one whole month, my 100 dollar investment is a mere ornament. And sadly I’m not alone.

Can we get some clarification on the prizes for showing up early?

“Be the First!
First 150 guests: Limited-edition PS Vita and Starhawk t-shirts
First 50 guests w/ a PS Vita: Free Copy of Unit 13 (after Foursquare check-in)”

Limited Edition PSVita? Or a Limited Edition shirt with a Vita on it?
Also, does it cost anything to enter the building and join the hangout?

This sounds like a good time. I’m right outside Austin, in Round Rock, and this would totally be something I’d love to go to. We need more gaming events here :(

Hi, I’m Esteban Tijerina with PSN maggot, and I won the Starhawk tournament today for the community event at Red 7 in Austin, TX. I need to contact someone for a question about today’s event, please let me know who I should talk to. Thank you.
