PlayStation Blogcast: Live at PAX! This Weekend! Come See Us!

Nick Suttner's Avatar Posted by on Aug 29, 2013 // Lead Account Manager, SCEA

Bad news first: there isn’t a new Blogcast going up today. Good news: it’s because we’re doing it LIVE, BABY! This very weekend at PAX – specifically, at 12:30pm on Saturday 8/31, in the Pegasus Theater. It’s our very first live episode, and we figure we may as well make it as terrifying as possible by doing it in front of a room full of strangers. So please, come be one of those strangers!

Official PlayStation Blogcast Live!

Join us for our very first live podcast, farm fresher than ever! All the nerdy game talk and lame puns you’ve come to expect, crowd Q&A, live Mystery Themes with prizes, and much more! Hosts Sid Shuman and Nick Suttner (and a special guest or two!) will be rocking the mic, so come help us make this thing awesome! Bring your PlayStation love and your best Blasto cosplay.

  • SATURDAY 8/31 12:30PM – 1:30PM

If you’re not lucky/savvy enough to find yourself in Seattle, we should be able to record it and post the audio later, but no promises. And really, you’ll want to be there in person for Sid’s horribly inappropriate wordplay, Justin’s youthful gleam, and my general musk (it really fills a room!).

Joking aside, we have some awesome special guests, and some niiiiice things planned for the Q&A. Seriously, bring a question, it will be worth your time. In gold bullion.

Speaking of which, now’s a great time (to invest in gold bullion, but also) to send us an e-mail or voicemail – if it’s a good one, we’ll read/play it live on the panel!

E-mail us: blogcast@playstation.sony.com

Call us: 650-288-6706

That’s about it, hope to see you on Saturday!

hey is anyone having problems updating the new vita update 2.61? i cant seem to update my vita, then when the error comes up it freezes on me when i click ok. : (

You mean I get to see the beard in person and live? That’s worth the price of admission alone!!!

Is there a flame app for the Vita so we can have the crowd with lighters?

I should be there as long as I can find a seat.

    Hope you can make it, I’m sure there will be plenty of seats.

    Careful with the lighters, that beard is highly flammable.

Will this be an annual thing? Would give me more reasons to make the 2-3 hour trip to Seattle :)

    We’ll have to see how it goes. If it’s great, I don’t see why not! If it’s a disaster, never again. :-)


+ Alastor424 on August 29th, 2013 at 2:49 pm said:

Any word on a digital release for Kingdom Hearts 1.5?


+ Ryumoau on August 29th, 2013 at 2:51 pm said:


i’m hoping for that as well, since my ps3 doesn’t read game disks anymore. :(

But i heard Square can’t put any KH games digitally because of either Disney or Utada’s music legal issues.

Don’t let failure be a show stopper.

It’s not like it might turn out like the (in)famous Destructoid panel.


+ avatarguy on August 29th, 2013 at 3:08 pm said:

Could you guys pick one day and stick to releasing the podcast on that day please?

    It comes out on Thursday 90% of the time, so you can generally plan for that, there are just exceptions that often happen around industry shows, and in this case a live show. But Thursday is your day.

Look forward to hopefully hearing it online. I wont be there *hangs head down in shame* but I know you guys will be awesome I love listening to the show.

Hi, Nick!

Good luck with the live Blogcast this Sturday at PAX!

In a future blogcast, could you please have a Q&A with the appropriate people at Sony who can discuss how we’ll be able to upgrade the HDD in the PS4. Also, we’d like to know if/how PS3 headsets will be compatible with the PS4.

Thank you.

Is this open to anyone in Seattle or do I need some sort of PAX badge? They sold out to quick for me :(


+ erleikur on August 29th, 2013 at 4:57 pm said:

For anyone who might be as curious as me, the time is PACIFIC time, which means that would be 2.30 – 3.30pm CENTRAL time. Which is my time. ;)


+ BlindMango on August 29th, 2013 at 5:15 pm said:

You guys should definitely do a live stream video of the podcast, if it’s impossible to do it this time around then definitely do it next time around, video podcasts are much more enjoyable from live events =D And of course rip the audio from the video and put that in the iTunes Podcast RSS for those that don’t want to watch the PAX video, lol – It sucks I can’t see it live but I’ll definitely give it a listen! DLB is one of the guys who won the contest and he’s with you guys (I’ve known him for five years, I’m one of the guys in his group that works on his website and stuff), he’ll probably get to see you guys live, freakin’ lucky… haha

Wish i could be there in person. Hope you guys are able to record the audio, would love to hear it.


+ tusunami on August 30th, 2013 at 8:55 am said:

It’s been awhile since i’ve listened to the PS Blog, I have to try & get caught up at some point hopefully.


+ erleikur on September 2nd, 2013 at 8:15 am said:

Now, don’t tell us you did NOT record the Live show? When will it be posted for D/L? :)


+ TwinDad on September 2nd, 2013 at 9:15 am said:

It was a great blogcast. It was cool to meet Nick, Sid, and Justin. I won’t spoil the two special guest, but it was nice to meet them both too.

A big thank you to Sid for the GOW3 special edition.

Nick, I’ve got a long list of indie games that I hope are on your teams list of games to bring to PS4. I’m very excited that the PS4 hardware is esentially a customized PC, and that it makes it easy for teams to bring their games to PS4.
