PlayStation Network and Gamebattles Auto Reporting

Bret Blount's Avatar Posted by Manager, Marketing Alliances, SCEA

Gamebattles and PSN auto reporting

Hi everyone! My group has been working hard with partners at MLG’s Gamebattles to give competitive PlayStation gamers a better tournament experience. Last month it was secure registration and authentication between PSN and Gamebattles. Today we’re happy to officially introduce auto reporting — a function of sharing game data between the PlayStation Network and Gamebattles tournament and ladder systems.

It works like this: When you finish a match which was scheduled on select Gamebattles PlayStation arenas, Gamebattles will fetch the score and statistics for both teams (or players). For the player, this means it will be much easier and faster to play PS3 matches on Gamebattles and there will be fewer disputes based on user input errors. It will also allow PlayStation to highlight PS3 Gamebattles activity in real-time, both on the interweb and within connected PlayStation communities.

This feature has been enabled first for the MLB ’09 THE SHOW All Star Championship, which is live and open for free registration now. This will be the first of many PLAYSTATION 3 titles to support such data integration. Enjoy and stay tuned for more multiplayer goodness!

This is pretty cool, but Sony – Where’s the PSN’s equivalent to You know, where you can see an official trophies leaderboards, see profiles automatically updated, etc?

Please add this feature to Warhawk. already has the ability to get the score from clan games using Warhawks stats server’s XML, so gamebattles should be able to as well.
