Meet up with us in LA at E3 2008

Jeff Rubenstein's Avatar Posted by Sr. Social Media Manager

So, apparently E3 is no longer a circus. No booth babes, no craziness. It’s for VIPs, not gamers. Media and industry types only, thankyouverymuch.

Forget all that.

King Taco

PlayStation.Blog is hosting a meet-up for all of our readers, fanboys (and Fanboys), fellow bloggers, and anyone else interested in PlayStation at the King Taco on Pico, down the street from the LA Convention Center, where all the E3 action happens. Bring your PSP.

Want to talk about that morning’s PlayStation Press Conference? Want to slam some free aguas frescas? Want to see if you’re taller than me? (hint: you’re not)

Then, we’d love to see you. Don’t forget to bring your PSP. If you’re in the area and can make it here are the details:

When: July 15, 5-7:30pm PST
Where: King Taco
Address: 2020 W. Pico Blvd. Los Angeles, Ca 90006

For more info and to RSVP, just visit our Facebook page, or send a note to Space is limited, so RSVP’ing is strongly encouraged. I’d rather not irk Chief Freeman.

Looking forward to seeing you all there, and digging in to some tasty al pastor tacos.

Oh, and have I mentioned, you should bring your PSP!

Add Your Own

will the PSP ever get Trophies support or maybe custom soundtracks?

I live in Oregon and obviously cant go, but make sure you tell us what everybody needed their PSP for.

Anyone who is going to king taco restaurant and to meet the Playstation blog team.
Can someone do me a favour and tell them to make trophies and custom music (in-game XMB) Mandatory!!!!

Yeah come to aussie (Australia), your gonna see alot of kangaroos hopping their way about and koalas climbing on trees. It’s once in a lifetime ;). Don’t worry about the killer ants but if we survive you should survive too, hehe. You will also experience the delaystation of games compared to Japan and America.

Damn I wish I was in America now.

DrunkMiffy@ said:

July 12th, 4:56 am


Oh hellz yeah! Thanks for that ‘correction’, Onna76_NL. You beat me too, it. ;)

Dammit tho’, it’s still lame sauce I don’t get to got to see the King Taco either! Why must I live in the dirrty South–North Carolina?!! NOTHING ever comes here. EVER… :(

Oh well, you guys and GALS that get to go chomp down a extra fajita for me, LOL. And somebody please ask about future better internet browser support–for the PSP & PS3!

Onna76_NL said:

July 12th, 5:21 am

@GanjaQueen I seem to have the habit of doing that around here :-D You’re a female gamer too?

Arion87 said:

July 12th, 5:41 am

Will the Sony press conference be posted on the US and EU store sometime? If so, when?

Thanks and I would love to come to the meet up but I stay in South Africa. Maybe 1 day though

GanjaQueen said:

July 12th, 6:36 am

@ Onna76_NL,

Yep, damn skippy!;)

Yeah, suppose that’s the path we choose–meaning the constant correction path–to get that point drilled to our gaming ‘brethren’, LOL. It’s pretty much a habit for me too. :)

If we can get some kind of event in NYC next year and start making it annually for the East Coast gamers, that would be cool. I’m sure someone can think of something.

thingg said:

So for those of us who can’t go for the free taco’s, schwag and what ever other goodies that involve a PSP if there’s any left overs how about a contest for those who couldn’t make it? Minus the tacos I don’t think they’ll be edible by the time the winner gets them.

Aaaah, how refreshing – personal, charismatic responses instead of the imposing business responses we’re assualted with from everyone else

Jeigh said:

July 12th, 9:24 am

Aw… I may not be as far away as New York, but it’s a shame I still can’t go. Besides that, classes start the very day of E3. Oh well.

Enjoy! :D

Trustter said:

Hi Jeff,

This is just amazing. Even that I am not going to attend this I already feel the community aspect of been a gamer.

I wish I could go. It’s one of my dreams one day go to E3. I am Brazilian and now I live in Canada. So it’s not too far away from I have been following since 95.

I cant wait to find out what all the big fuss is over bringing your PSP, unfortunately i cant go but it would be cool to!

Damballa said:

July 12th, 11:35 am

Hey Jeff,
Really cool that you guys are doing this. I live on the West Coast…..of Canada, so I wouldn’t be able to attend. Let me know if you guys ever decide to do something north of the border, on the west coast of course, and I’d be sure to stop by. Have fun at E8 thing to, looks like it will be a blast, even without the booth babes.

DJMayhem said:

Auroura said:

July 12th, 12:41 pm

Hey Jeff! I got an email saying I can RSVP. It sayed all I had to do is reply back with name, phone number, and email address. But hmm I did that and never got a reply! Nooooooooooooo!! I guess I won’t be going xD. I guess I can stream it right? :) . It won’t be as cool going to the actual event though. I have a silver slim psp too. Am hoping sony reveals another psp model so I can snag that! And if its blue, THAT WOULD BE AWESOME!!

GanjaQueen said:

July 12th, 5:28 pm

@ 142

Hahaha, yeah that was kinda funny….

But seriously, I wouldn’t have even admitted doing something like that(don’t do it anyway)….xD

Well my friend (cell989), I’m sure those Sony guys and girls will be ‘glad’ to see you come (…as plot to get you locked up for tampering w/ their system), LOL

hayejos said:

July 12th, 7:07 pm

I unfortunately am also too far away. Hey Jeff while considering doing east coast, don’t forget about us in the heartland(midwest) that would be awesome if you were in Chicago or KC or something like that. Oh well everyone who can go have a good time, have some tacos, and bring back some stories/info to the blog.

I wish, but don’t they have those crazy killer ants there?

We do. But we also have Jennifer Hawkins.

You might get attacked by killer ants but it’ll be worth it. lol

Just kidding, but can you make it happen?
