This past week the PlayStation Digital Platforms Community team attended E3 down in Los Angeles and hung out with PlayStation community members from around the world. This was also this third year we built out a virtual E3 booth in PlayStation Home, literally matching schematics as closely as possible to the real deal, and bringing the community the sort of experiences you would have if you were lucky enough to get entrance to the real expo.
The best part about the virtual E3 booth—no lines! Some games and experiences at the real E3 require waiting quite a while to get in.
We would like to share some pics from the real PlayStation E3 booth, so you can take a further glimpse into the excitement that is E3. Due to popular demand, we are extending the virtual E3 booth one more week. So if you didn’t get a chance to check it out, you have a little more time. But once it’s gone, it’s gone for the year.
We bumped into our buddy, writer and director of Platinum’d, Brandon Winfrey.
Aside from all the excitement, to attend E3 is to feel the beating heart of the games industry. There is a camaraderie that instantly forms .. It feels like a family reunion! Everyone in the games industry comes together and works hard (during the day) and plays hard (at night). There are many special events, dinners and parties, and it’s clear that everyone’s hard work is for one purpose: exists to bring joy and happiness to gamers around the world. In that way, we get to feel as if we are working together to make the world a more fun place. Witnessing all this, I am very proud to work for PlayStation, and to have an opportunity to connect gamers to one another and the products that they love.
Enough gushy insider gossip—you want to know what’s coming this week in Home!
As mentioned above, due to popular demand, the virtual E3 booth will be extended one more week, so if you haven’t run through all Christina Lee’s quests, visited all the kiosks and collected all your rewards, do so quickly.
