PlayStation’s Guide to PAX East 2013

Eric Smith's Avatar + Posted by Eric Smith on Mar 21, 2013 // Senior Public Relations Specialist, SCEA

Itching to play The Last of Us? Heading to Boston next week? Be one of the first to go hands-on with the game at PAX East! Gameplay demos will be happening in a custom-designed setting modeled after one of the game’s locales. What’s more, the demo itself is set in Boston, after the city has been decimated by the Cordyceps infection. Hands-on time is limited for each player, but if you manage to reach the end of the demo you’ll be rewarded with one of our tension bricks (that we’ve playfully named Brock).

If you go hands-on with the demo, you’ll also receive one of these collectible t-shirts, available in male and female sizes.

Additionally, Dark Horse Comics has provided us with 250 of a limited run of 500 posters featuring cover art from The Last of Us: American Dreams issue #2.

Supplies are limited for all items and when they’re gone, they’re gone. If you want to get your hands on this extremely unique and limited memorabilia, stop by the PlayStation booth and be one of the first to play The Last of Us.

The world of Tearaway will also be at PAX East (booth 1193). Media Molecule will be there, and they want to reward everyone who visits with papery treasures! Complete simple challenges to collect buttons, shirts and papercraft items. You’ll also get a chance to meet the team behind the game and see some Tearaway papercraft concept art.

And, lastly, many titles from our PSN catalog will also have a presence at PAX East. Sportsfriends (one of our upcoming Pub Fund games) will be there — check out the panel, or see if you’ve got the moves to win the official Johann Sebastian Joust tournament!

DrinkBox Studio will have Guacamelee! (another upcoming Pub Fund game) for PS3 and PS Vita playable in the IndieMegaBooth, and Muteki will also be there demoing Dragon Fantasy Book 1 and Book 2 for PS3 and PS Vita (you guessed it — a Pub Fund game). Don’t miss the Do JRPGs Really Still Matter? panel, featuring Adam Rippon of Muteki.

Back in their own booths, Iron Galaxy will have DiveKick playable on PS3 and PS Vita, and FRIMA Studio will have Nun Attack on PS Vita and Zombie Tycoon II on PS3 and Vita.

Are you heading to PAX East this year? What are you going to play first?

That panel on JRPGs sounds like it would be interesting, and I am in the Boston area, but I didn’t think to get a pass. Maybe next year.

Oh cool, so Dragon Fantasy Book I will be released too? I knew the sequel was coming to PSN but I had been wondering about the first game. (Sounds like it’s a separate release or are they both the same package? If Book 1 is coming soon that’d be a nice prelude while Book 2 is being hashed out,)

    Book I is being released first. We’ll be announcing the release date soon but so far what I can say:
    It does support trophies
    It does support PS3/PS Vita Cross-Buy
    It does support Cross-Save (shared save slot between the PS3 and PS Vita)
    We’ll have a blog post here soon to go over everything :)

Issue #2 of “American Dreams” The Last of Us comic book, is what I want! The brick and the t-shirt just aren’t doing it for me. (but if I was at PAX, I would take all of thee above without hesitation) lol

I may not have a ticket, but I’m certainly going to head into town to see if anything shows up on Near. If anybody sees a Treasure Park sheet from me, give it a whirl.

guys i was there today, was one of the first to play the Last of Us and it is INCREDIBLE. I won’t say much cause i don’t want to spoil anything. It is not like uncharted so anyone who was concerned let me put your worries at ease, the game is incredible and far more unique in playing style/pacing and strategy. Everything is scarce, so all the decisions you make with what items to pick up and use (weapons, health, etc) become critical as you went through the 30-minute demo. YES, you got to play for 30 minutes. only about 10% actually finished the demo.

I DID in fact complete the demo (and according to them one of the faster completions) and did receive the tension brick. its about the palm of your hand if you’re wondering on size. Didn’t see the posters but did get the t-shirt.

Great stuff, the game is amazing and you’re all in for an experience when it comes out.
