PAX East: PlayStation WWS Community Exchange, Booth Events

Aaron Kaufman's Avatar + Posted by Aaron Kaufman on Apr 11, 2014 // Community Strategist, Santa Monica Studio

If you missed our first announcement, then hear us roar again. For the first time ever, five of PlayStation’s Worldwide Studios community teams have banded together to construct a community focused booth at PAX East. Additionally, there will be some great PS4 and PS Vita games showing at PAX from some of our talented indie developers as well, which we will detail below. The PlayStation family will be in booth #608 at the Boston Convention Center April 11-13. Not only will we be selling exclusive merchandise and highly collectible PlayStation memorabilia, but you can also discuss, share, and create PlayStation memories with community team leads from Guerrilla, Media Molecule, Naughty Dog, Sony Santa Monica, and Sony Xdev.

Wait! There’s more! We have a slew of daily booth and online activities planned for all attendees, even those who cannot make it to Boston. Join the conversation today and continue it all show long by using #PSPAX whenever you talk about PAX or PlayStation online. Here’s the grand rundown of events and our full booth schedule below!

Name That Tune

How well do you know our PlayStation music? We’ll be blasting tunes from our games all day at the booth. Find the designated “jar next to our speaker” and tell us a game you think the music is from. Random correct winners will be selected at the end of every day for great prizes.

Our live booth schedule

You didn’t think we’d just stand around flipping PlayStation controllers in the air now did you? We have a number of live activities planned every day at our booth, so stop by frequently!

PlayStation Community Town Halls

Every day at PAX East during the various times noted in the schedule below, each of our PlayStation studios will be taking the mic at our booth to answer your questions live in-person. We call it our “Community Town Hall”. We’ll be fielding all questions and aiming to share more about what we do as Community Managers at each of our studios, tidbits related to our current games, studio culture, and why it’s awesome being inside the development of great games. This is your opportunity to get to know us in a very fun, informal way. See the full schedule below.

Whew! We’re going to have some sore throats when all is said and done but there’s just one more thing…the Molecules and all of us want to make sure the PAX Exclusive Iota Pinny will get in the hands of those who interact with us. The pinny game of PAX has a simple rule: trade or kindly ask for it. Chat with any of us at the booth wearing a World Wide Studios PAX T-Shirt and perhaps we will pin Iota to your lanyard, shirt, or give to you at our discretion. Maybe we’ll even trade you for an Ellie pinny.

Wouldn’t it be awesome to be able to be able to make a 2 on 6 game-mode in KZSF. You know, be able to set the number of individual teammates for teams. (Ex: 2v6 or 3v1) Please let that be possible in a future update^-^
