Want to Play God of War III Early? Come to our GDC San Francisco Meetup!

Come celebrate the release of the most anticipated game of 2010 – by playing it early!

Earlier today, we sent this God of War III invite out to media, industry luminaries, heads of state, space marines, surviving Greek and Roman gods, and select reality TV show stars (nobody from celebrity rehab shows, thankyouverymuch).

God of War meetup event

Assuming you don’t fit into one of those categories, we did what we always do here at PlayStation.Blog: score extra tickets for you community members. We’ve got a couple HUNDRED tickets to get some of our close, personal friends (this means *you*) into this super-exclusive event, where you’ll get to go hands-on with the final, polished version of God of War III, enjoy our legendary hospitality, and watch a Really-Awesome-Band-That-I-Can’t-Name-Yet perform.

What do you need to do? Well – just show up.

Based on previous meet-ups we’ve held, we know some of you will get there early. For this event – we’re expecting it. Heck, we’re practically demanding it!

While the hands-on event doesn’t start until 7pm – we’re setting up a Community-Only pre-event party that goes on all day. We’ll have free food from 12:00 p.m. to 1:00 p.m. (Tacos of the Gods, anyone?), limited edition schwag giveaways, free wi-fi (we expect you to Tweet!), the chance to put yourself on the God of War III box, autographs with the developers and CHAOS…in the form of games, of course. We’ve got some really good stuff planned, so take the day off, make the drive from LA/Vegas/St. Louis, and get there early!

This event will be limited, so if you want to go, be sure to RSVP on our Facebook event page.

Here are some important details:

  • The hands-on event goes from 7-10pm on Wednesday, March 10, 2010 at the SF Concourse Exhibition Center. The pre-party meet-up begins at noon (you’ll see our tent in venue’s parking lot). Directions here. Don’t even think of strolling up at 6.30pm – you ain’t getting in!
  • Keep in mind that you must be 21 or older to get into evening hands-on event, but anyone 18+ (or with their parent/guardian) can come to the all-day meetup. ID *will* be checked!
  • Parking is rough in the area, so try to take BART or Caltrain – both very close to venue.
  • Once you’re in, you’re in — no ins and outs (don’t worry, we will have bathrooms). Unless of course you don’t want to stick around for the amazingly awesome hands-on event at 7pm. Then you’re free to leave at will…but you’re making a HUGE mistake!
  • You must RSVP via this Facebook event invite
  • Be sure to leave your replica Blades of Chaos at home
  • You might wanna think about bringing your PSP ;-)

The End Begins at GDC. Will you be there?

      Yeah, we\’re trying to figure that out. MaryMyFantasy *is* a pretty amusing name though, you have to admit!

  • I wish I could go but I live in Hawaii

  • Dashing_R approves.

  • Why not Los Angeles? Anyways where is my store update? Why can’t it ever be on time? COME ON!!!!!!!!!!

      GDC is in San Francisco. Therefore all of the gaming industry will be in San Francisco.

  • Great post as always, but geez, will you just update the store already. It’s already after 8pm on the east coast and The Office comes on soon.

  • Awesome, March 16th can’t come soon enough…and where’s the store update?

    Out of topic question: Why isn’t the PS Blog white as’s new design? It isn’t that i would like it to be white as a matter of fact i like the blog design as it is…but just wondering.

      That\’s coming within a few days. Just sorting out all this login error business.

      Nice prediction!

  • TristanMike

    What’s up with this week’s PSN update ?

  • Can chicago get some playstation love?


    The store update will come soon guys. No worries. :) But, where is that blog update you promised Jeff? lol jk

  • Already played the demo even before it was on the store, so, no thanks. I’ll wait until release date. I’m guessing the PlayStation Store update is running late due to the issue with the in-game store in Battlefield: Bad Company 2 not working.

  • Cool.. but where’s the store update?


    Oh and why don’t emoticons work anymore?

    • Jeff Rubenstein
      Jeff Rubenstein

      They haven\’t worked in quite awhile. I know there was a good reason why (the tech people explained it), but now I can\’t remember. Bring back emoticons!
