MotorStorm Pacific Rift crashes into stores today, and if you early adopters think you’re going to be cleaning up online – be warned: the athletes on the Dew Action Sports Tour have been practicing. The Dew Tour recently wrapped up with the PlayStation Pro – the final event of the year for this traveling BMX, FMX, and skate road show.

As the name implies, PlayStation had a big presence; some of the athletes met up at the PlayStation Experience Truck for some Play with the Pros action in MotorStorm – take a look:


For more pics and details of what went down at the PlayStation Pro, click over to this coverage from the Orlando Sentinel’s gaming blog (thanks to Matt for the above photo as well).

If you noticed the T-shirts or the kid with the MotorStorm Pacific Rift hat in the video – these numbers were pretty hot commodities at the event… so we saved some for you readers. The first 15 people to send a request to givemethatmotorstormschwag@gmail.com will score themselves a MotorStorm Pacific Rift shirt *and* hat, free of charge.

    The winners will be notified tomorrow. Then they can gloat all they want in the comments.

    In an on-topic fashion, of course.

enewtabie said:

Hey Jeff
Is that a R2 t shirt? and where can I get one!

    It is indeed a SRPA shirt. We were giving them out like mad at PAX…

E-mail sent.

A bit off topic but is there a way I could get the RSS for the PSBlog on my PSP???

    PSP handles video RSS, but not text.

AdeptHavoc said:

October 28th, 4:20 pm

Doubt I got it, but I sent it anyways. =D

jeff were those real PS3 controllers they look bigger and better to play with.

    Yeah, they just have this clear plastic thing around them that secures the wire so they don\’t go disappearing.

RNBaran said:

This is awesome. SONY has so many iconic games.

RNBaran said:

October 28th, 4:28 pm

Is there any way I can get emailed updates on events in my area?

antonisbob said:

October 28th, 4:29 pm

[DELETED], stupid U.S no cares about the Cand im Canadaian =,( they get every thing down there.

AdeptHavoc said:

October 28th, 4:29 pm

Hey, while we’re on the quick subtopic of RSS feeds, any idea if there would be support for text RSS in the future?

squevie said:

October 28th, 4:30 pm

oh oh i emailed….can i have a lbo beta code?! oh wait, thats not what this is for? oh. i was having flashbacks. sorry. I still emailed and im in the US. w00t!

tirminyl said:

October 28th, 4:38 pm

Squevie- LBP is out by the way. Go pick the game up, it is amazing.

Charliesdad said:

October 28th, 4:41 pm

@17 want to trade governments, health care or education systems?

squevie said:

October 28th, 4:41 pm

Can’t wait to dive in myself

schwaa said:

October 28th, 5:25 pm

First 15? Howabout the first 50?

twooh said:

October 28th, 5:36 pm

Here we go again with the 1st few people crap again. Can I say LBP keys all over? 15 people out of a few thousand readers? How fair!

    Jeff Rubenstein's Avatar

    Jeff Rubenstein said:

    October 29th, 8:21 am

    So if I have 15 of something (like in this case), I should just keep it for myself? That\’s more fair?

Spectrace said:

October 28th, 5:37 pm

damn i hope i was one of the lucky 15, i almost never get stuff from sony anymore, and im in the GAP. i used to get demo disks for psp and other stuff,

now, idk what happened, but dont get as much mailings. I still get paper mail from playstation every once in a while :)

Spectrace said:

October 28th, 5:38 pm

Oh, Jeff, Are there different sizes of hats/shirts? or is it one size for everyone, because if I happen to be one of the luckies, I would like a shirt/hat that fits and I can wear.

I’m pretty sure this question applies to all entrants. :)

wavesln said:

October 28th, 5:44 pm

Nice

nmc75 said:

October 28th, 6:30 pm

I’d love to be able to buy a Motorstorm t-shirt or cap myself, personally.

kspraydad said:

October 28th, 6:46 pm

@12…Google Reader for RSS works great on the PSP by the way.

kspraydad said:

October 28th, 6:47 pm

@30

Yep…I think they should have a schwag shop as part of the PSN store…all the developers could sell ton’s of cr@p on there…

uraizen said:

October 28th, 7:00 pm

Late, but hopeful, might as well try.

thingg said:

@22
rofl

@jeff
you guys should do like the 137th to 152nd responders or something random like that…. Still, free swag is always cool, even I didn;t get it this time. (still got my PSblog anniversary shirt though… B-) )

BZKlint said:

October 28th, 7:15 pm

E-mail sent, though I doubt it was in time :(

By the way, is there any way to get an R2 shirt still?

mendezgato said:

October 28th, 7:22 pm

men i think i emailed it on time

BabeBro said:

October 28th, 8:09 pm

I will be picking up my pre-ordered and fully paid for copy of MotorStorm: Pacific Rift @ GameStop tomorrow!

WHAT said:

October 28th, 10:15 pm

“if you early adopters think you’re going to be cleaning up online – be warned” our severs are not going to work for weeks.(fixed)

GGCAN said:

October 29th, 7:07 am

Thanks Jeff.

I’m in Canada so guess I can’t send in my email…’another one bites the dust’.

But I’ve got Motorstorm 2 on my pre-order list.

Transient said:

October 29th, 8:00 am

Maybe once in awhile these contests could include Canadians since the US site is the official one for them.

ajpfeif said:

October 29th, 10:05 am

Have the winners been notified yet? =D

Real Gambler said:

October 29th, 10:26 am

Dang, no love for canadians again…

Let me see…
Motorstorm is only coming out Tomorrow in Canada, but it’s available today in the U.S.
My set 3 Eye of Judgment cards will NEVER be available in Canada, and I have to order them from the U.S. (They came out already in other countries!)
Just got my LBP pre-order yesterday, but many U.S. gamers got theirs way before (and with my luck,the server is down since yesterday)
And now, as a canadian, I’m not allowed to get into this awesome draw. (Wow! The cap is awesome)

Just look up on a map guys… The huge country north of the U.S. is Canada. It’s a good chunk of North America too.

(Sorry, had to let go some steam, not my style normally)

I want one of those hats and shirts so bad.
guys send me some swag, I’ll wear it all on stage at my next big show and post the pictures here, !!!
Pleeeez

@ Jeff

“So if I have 15 of something (like in this case), I should just keep it for myself? That’s more fair?”

No. But make it to where people who have jobs and a life and who don’t sit and read the blog all day, have a chance. That would be fair. Some people don’t have jobs and are always the 1st posters. That’s not fair to the ones who have responsibilities.

Sorry to seem like a complainer, but be fair.

mendezgato said:

October 29th, 1:20 pm

enewtabie said:

bear0402 said:

Another thing Sony, don’t sweat sales/non-profits of the PS3. Here’s what happening…no one knew what u guys would bring to the table of next-gen. The reason Y everyone jumped to 360 was b/c expectations were high and that time (PS3 lauch) you weren’t able to deliver as well as the developers. This is where M$ was smart. They were the first to market next-gen hardware and get info to the consumer on HD gaming. This is where PS3 was left in the dust, however, u guys do now understand what next-gen is about as well as the DVs. Now, u can prove why u guys said next-gen started when u said so, it was just said prematurely, that’s all. Now its time to show the Competition and consumer alike what next-gen SONY Computer Entertainment is about!!!

SONY…..like.no.other.
