PlayStation All-Stars Trivia Tweet-up Starts Now

Josh Sepielli's Avatar + Posted by Josh Sepielli on Nov 14, 2012 // Associate Product Marketing Mananger, SCEA

Hey PlayStation Nation! A couple of weeks ago we released “The All-Star” for all of the PlayStation All-Stars Battle Royale fans out there. From the more than five million views it got in two days, we’re guessing that you liked it. For the hardcore PlayStation fans, we layered in more than 30 Easter eggs referencing the playable characters, levels, and some classic PlayStation heritage.

People have been decoding Easter eggs in the comments, and our friends over at IGN recently filmed a Rewind Theater of “The All-Star” the same day it came out. IGN did a great job finding a handful of our Easter eggs — but they didn’t find all of them! So we’re turning to our fans to help uncover more, as well as relive some key moments in PlayStation history, with a Trivia tweet up.

Here are the deets: Starting today and progressing through the next few days, we’ll be tweeting trivia questions from @PlayStation to find out who can answer tough questions about the game, the film, the characters, and general PlayStation history. Along the way, we’ll be flagging random US participants to score one of 500 digital copies of PlayStation All-Stars Battle Royale on both PS3 and PS Vita. Just be sure to mark your response tweets with #PlayStationAllStars!

We’ll pick 20 50 random winners in the US region for each trivia question, two per day. When the contest is complete, we’ll Direct Message out the codes to the winners on or before November 20th — launch day!

Time to put your PlayStation cred to the test. Are you in?

As a Canadian, would “ya’ll” mind if I pretended to be American for a few days? Oh well, good luck everyone, cool ( sneaky advertising) contest.

getting more and more interested in the game since i’m hearing there are lots of collectables and things for people to do outside of playing online. I’m watching the live stream of All Stars on IGN right now. :)

“US participants”

That just killed the article for me. :-( Why doesn’t Canada get any love in most of these contests?

I wish we could get these things in the Playstation Network. Instead of always needing to deal with twitter and facebook BS.

‘US participants’ , that killed all my enthusiasm and the excitement. There are so many EU fans, kinda unfair if Canada and EU dont get it. C’mon, 500 copys?? It isn’t enough to share to EU and Canada? Not another US only please :/…

Ok when u say in the us region that means Puerto Rico its not available to participate again right….?

+ DarkOne_PR on November 14th, 2012 at 4:25 pm said:

@luiskoelho

But good luck to all who participate.

Two down. Awesome giveaway guys. Do these digital copies come with the pre order bonus costumes? That would be great if it did, if not this is still a mega give away. Good to know how soaked with history that All Stars video is. Great stuff.

Looking forward to this ^^

I can’t wait. ^.^ If I can’t win one I’m gonna have to wait till Christmas to get my copy. That’s WAY too long in my opinion.

@13

Puerto Rico is not a state nor do the people pay taxes to the US.

That must be why you are not included in the contest. <– sarcasm

Love the promotion! Really cool way to get all the fans excited for the launch!

+ GrayWolf323 on November 15th, 2012 at 9:28 am said:

will winners be notified before the 20th? I’m hoping to win but if I don’t I wanna jump on the preorder deal for the bonus costumes before it’s too late


33

+ NewYorkNative28 on November 15th, 2012 at 1:04 pm said:

@31 I was thinking the same thing. I have posted answers to all of the questions so far on Twitter with hashtags to help keep #PlayStationAllStars trending. Not sure if I will win a free copy, but it’s worth spreading the word for a game that is a blast to play.

Best regards.
