Hi all – We’ve got a lot of passionate Star Wars fans here at PlayStation’s US headquarters anxiously awaiting November 17th, the launch of Star Wars Battlefront on PS4 and the launch of the Limited Edition PS4 Star Wars Battlefront bundle. Based on the recent Beta, this is shaping up to be the biggest, most authentic Star Wars game of all time. And that’s thanks to the hard work of the digital wizards at DICE and LucasArts.
We officially introduced “Where the Greatest Play” at E3 with a gaming inspired mural, which was painted throughout the week. We asked you to vote for your favorite PlayStation character to be the flag bearer in our gamer masterpiece and you chose the legendary Nathan Drake. You can take a look at the E3 painting process in action in the video below.
So here’s something a little bit different: We want you to mail us.
Seriously, we do. We want you to tell us how games have affected your life. If they’ve shocked you, or scared you, or changed you, we want to hear why. We want to hear how your experiences with games have defined you.
PS4’s North American launch heralds the dawn of a new gaming generation, and today we’re upping the ante with an interactive event called First to Greatness.
