School is back in session, and while I love my job here at PlayStation, I’d be lying if I said I wasn’t jealous of all of you playing video games in your dorms, getting ready for big home football games, and sleeping till noon. Even though I can’t go back to school this year, PlayStation certainly can! Starting this Thursday, September 20th, we’re launching the PlayStation On Campus Tour, sending two vans packed with PlayStation goodness to college campuses across America. At each stop on tour, we will be rolling out four decked out gaming spaces, each dedicated to an awesome PS3 or PS Vita title:
Battle Royale Ultimate Dorm Room
There’s no better way to relieve the stresses of college than to whomp on your friends with your favorite PlayStation characters. That’s why we’ve created the ultimate gaming dorm room, complete with couches, two 50” TV’s and six PS3s for maximum cathartic healing! The Campus Tour will be one of the only places you can get your hands on PlayStation All-Stars Battle Royale before it comes out in November, so make sure you check out the Battle Royale Ultimate Dorm Room when we come to your school!
Step off your campus and into colonial America, 1775. That’s right, we’ve created an entire gaming space dedicated to Assassin’s Creed III and Assassin’s Creed III: Liberation – two of the most highly anticipated games of the year. Whether you’re new to the franchise or a die-hard fan, I’m positive you will find yourself glued to the screen for these beauties.
Are you ready for some football? We hope so, because a college tour wouldn’t be complete without paying homage to its great football culture (we’re even crashing a few tailgate parties on this tour). When you step onto the AstroTurf field at PlayStation Stadium, you better bring your ‘A’ game because you’ll need to rep your school and take out your rivals in NCAA Football 13 on PS3. For all you pro football fans out there, we’ll have eight PS Vitas for head-to-head gameplay in Madden NFL 13.
PlayStation Plus Members Club
The fourth and final space in this tour has the largest array of games to play. We’re letting everybody get a taste of what it’s like to be a PlayStation Plus member by showing off all twelve titles in the PS Plus Instant Game Collection. To top it all off, we’re giving everybody who stops by one month of PlayStation Plus for free so you can take the experience home with you, or extend your subscription if you’re already a member.
Not only will you check out the awesome gaming spaces and get hands on with some of the hottest PlayStation titles, you’ll also be able get access to exclusive offers and deals, created specifically for you, the college student. Check here for a list of campuses we’ll be visiting in the first two weeks. We will be adding stops to this list over time, so check back regularly to stay up to date or follow @HeyPlayStation on Twitter for live updates. Also, be sure to RSVP here and show a staff member, because they will hook you up with some awesome PlayStation swag.
Take a break from studying, grab some friends, and come hang out with us!
