Flex Your Skills at The ESPN X Games

Natalie Behrman's Avatar Posted by Consumer Events Specialist

Calling all adrenaline junkies! The ESPN X Games is hitting Los Angeles tomorrow through Sunday, August 3 — and for those that are on the fence about attending, we’ve sweetened the pot with some pulse pounding opportunities to show off your gaming skills at designated PlayStation areas.


Here are a few of the PlayStation activities you don’t want to miss:

  • PlayStation Experience Truck: on hand at the XFest at the Home Depot Center, we will be offering jam-packed interactive and hands-on social gaming and competition areas, including access to some of this year’s most-anticipated titles prior to their general availability like Little Big Planet, and fan favorites like Rock Band (Take the Stage) and SingStar (Show Us Your Vocals).
  • “Play the Pros” competition with Tanner Foust: on Friday, August 1 on the PlayStation Experience Truck, you might have the chance to go head-to-head against former rally racing X Games champion, Tanner Foust, on Gran Turismo 5 Prologue, the fifth installment of the world’s best-selling racing franchise and intense precursor to Gran Turismo 5. One catch, you’ll have to compete on Gran Turismo 5 Prologue earlier in the day and make it into the top five ranking to compete with Tanner and win bragging rights.
  • You may also be the first to watch yourself play MotorStorm: Pacific Rift, the intense racing sequel to MotorStorm, on the STAPLES jumbotron on Friday, August 1.
  • PSP Zones: located at the XFest at the Home Depot Center will offer gameplay opportunities (including Internet Radio and remote play) on titles like Secret Agent Clank, MLB 08 The Show, and Hot Shots Golf Open Tee 2, and entry into a sweepstakes for the “PSP Frequent Gamer” for a chance to win a prize pack including a new PSP and games.

You need to hold these games in the capital city of California, and not way down there.

Move the X Games to Sacramento!

i got to go to one of the winter Xgames once, it was great!

Hope everyone that gets to go has a great time!

you know, the PS3 needs a mascot, the 360 has Master Chief, and the Wii has Meat-Fisted Reggie Fills Aime, why not the PS3?

I propose a giant Grimp from Eden!

it would simultaneously terrify and confuse people at the same time, thereby leaving them open for pick-pocketing and mind altering rays that beam love for Bravia tvs and UMD’s directly into their weak consumer brains! It’s a sure fire win!!

i’ll get busy on the schematics, and you guys at Sony just need to send that research and development payment…a few hundered thousand should suffice for start up costs.

oh, and plutonium, i will need lots of plutonium.

This sounds fantastic, however, your other regions should get some of these activities going as well.

Canada is right beside the US and I hardly ever hear anything from the Canadian PS3 team.

Any chance of a docking bay for PSP with a USB port + Bluetooth to let us use SIXAXIS/Dual Shock 3 controllers (and maybe the PS3 bluray remote)? I’d love that for TV out.

Not to brag but WAHOO I’m within an hour of that place, gonna see if I can go on Friday. I’m not really going for the X Games either, I have to try LittleBigPlanet haha! Oh, and maybe I’ll try my hand at the GT5P competition, though I play that with a DS3 much more often than with my Driving Force, simply because it’s an older wheel and I’m usually too lazy to bring it out haha.

X1rtam said:

July 30th, 5:03 pm

So the website you linked to says “The Home Depot Center offers free admission and parking on Friday,” and that’s where the PS3 truck is going to be right?

Be careful, I hear a super villain named DarkMane is trying to destroy the X Games with conformity and well starched athletic uniforms. Seeing as he has an army of loyal minions, there is a very good chance that all originality will be annihilated.

X1rtam said:

Not sure if anyone from the blog staff is reading this, but I’m gonna go down there very soon! I hope the GT5P tournament either hasn’t begun or is open for a few hours, though all that really matters to me is that sweet, sweet LBP!!!
