Comic Con 13

As Comic-Con regulars know, there’s nothing more valuable at the yearly convention than time. With panel lines literally out the door and the Exhibitor Hall packed wall-to-wall with scurrying people, it’s often hard to decide how to allocate your precious time. This year, we’re making that decision a no-brainer.

PlayStation On Campus

School is back in session, and while I love my job here at PlayStation, I’d be lying if I said I wasn’t jealous of all of you playing video games in your dorms, getting ready for big home football games, and sleeping till noon. Even though I can’t go back to school this year, PlayStation certainly can! Starting this Thursday, September 20th, we’re launching the PlayStation On Campus Tour, sending two vans packed with PlayStation goodness to college campuses across America. At each stop on tour, we will be rolling out four decked out gaming spaces, each dedicated to an awesome PS3 or PS Vita title.

There’s no better way to relieve the stresses of college than to whomp on your friends with your favorite PlayStation characters. That’s why we’ve created the ultimate gaming dorm room, complete with couches, two 50” TV’s and six PS3s for maximum cathartic healing! The Campus Tour will be one of the only places you can get your hands on PlayStation All-Stars Battle Royale before it comes out in November, so make sure you check out the Battle Royale Ultimate Dorm Room when we come to your school!

Attention PlayStation Nation: we’re back with the biggest gaming tournament of the year – the $1 Million EA Sports Challenge Series powered by Virgin Gaming! Last year, we blew the doors off of the sports gaming scene and now we’re giving you another chance to take home huge cash prizes for playing FIFA 13, Madden NFL 13 and NHL 13.

To get a taste of what last year’s experience was like, check out this video recap from the 2012 tournament finals in New York. Last year in NYC, we made legends out of Adam Winster (FIFA 12 Challenge Champion), Tyler Glen (Madden NFL 12 Challenge Champion) and John Grasso (NHL 12 Challenge Champion). These gamers took home life-changing prizes and will be defending their titles in 2013. Bring your best game and you could be crowned this year’s champ.
