So, Today is My Last Day at PlayStation

Jeff Rubenstein

After five years, 5,995 blog posts, and 10,888 Tweets, today is my final day at PlayStation. We’ve accomplished a lot together: we’ve built PlayStation.Blog into one of the most influential blogs in the world, amassed the largest Twitter following in the industry and the 8th most fans in the world on Facebook (watch out McDonalds!). I mention these stats not to brag, but because I continue to be amazed at the enduring strength of the PlayStation brand and its fervent fans, whom I’ve been lucky to serve as Social Media Dudebro since 2007.

Jeff yells at people a lot

PlayStation, specifically SCEA, has been very good to me. I’ve been sent to gamescom, Tokyo Game Show, PAXes East and Prime, Comic-Con, and E3 many times over. I’ve gotten to personally put PS Vitas into fans’ hands for the first time at Social Club events. I’ve gotten to share exciting news, first looks, and big reveals with you, then relay your feedback to the teams that created them. Keep telling us what you think; it really does count!

Most impactful of all, I’ve met thousands of great people — gaming industry, media, and PlayStation fans — some of whom have become true friends.

Jeff just pretends to play games

Now, I’m actually looking forward to jumping back over to the fan side of the fence. Working through my massive backlog of games (starting with The Unfinished Swan this weekend). Buying The Last of Us at a midnight launch. Actually being surprised at E3.

It’ll be a big adjustment for me — but not for you. Perhaps the most important thing I’ve done here at PlayStation is surround myself with people more talented (if not better looking) than myself. Sid, Rey, and Justin are the reasons PlayStation.Blog is as informative, entertaining, and influential as it is. None of that will change when I walk out the door this afternoon. And I guess that’s why I’m at peace with moving on; my work here is well and truly done.

Play with me on PSN (JeffPS) and/or follow me on Twitter (@jeffrubenstein). I’m practicing PlayStation All-Stars Battle Royale right now. Bring it, my Radec is ready.

TL;DR I’ve really loved working with, and for, all of you.


Jeff eats like a girl

P.S. — Confession time: I’m the one who spilled coffee all over the break room on October 15th, 2007. I didn’t know how to operate the coffee maker. I regret the error.

Sorry to hear you’re leaving Jeff, I recall meeting you at the MAG event in Las Vegas, you were a really cool guy. Wish you the best of luck in your future endeavors.

I’m a follower of Ps Blog, I just read on the Ps Blog that your no longer with Sony. I wish you well in your future endeavors. Oh & your friends list is maxed out.


+ ItsIntegrity on November 10th, 2012 at 7:29 pm said:

If its a planned event than good luck… If its due to SCEA’s ignorance and policy to ignore REAL issues then good ridance. A lot of things have been ignored, especially as of late, and Id hope you did everything you could do help the consumers.

BTW… if you were and thats why your leaving (cuz SCEA think they dont have to abode by their own TOS) then you’ll land a job 7 times better than this company.


+ ItsIntegrity on November 10th, 2012 at 7:29 pm said:

On yur way out… can you ask em to add a sort feature to our downloads listing on the PS Store?
