Twitter users know that #FollowFriday is a cherished tradition — an opportunity to share the love by recommending your favorite personalities. We’re expanding that concept with a comprehensive list of PlayStation gaming personalities and organizations every month or two.

PlayStation.Blog: Follow Friday Header

Today, we’re expanding the internal PlayStation ecosystem while introducing a directory of PlayStation third-party publishers, game developers, and industry luminaries. Our goal is to create a definitive directory of the best sources of PlayStation news and discussion over time.

But we’ll need your help to make it truly complete. Got a recommendation for us to include? Leave your favorites in the comments, and we’ll take notes for the next column. Let us know what you think!


Developers, Publishing Partners, and Gaming Figures

Add Your Own

That is all fine and well, but you really need to start inter grading such things in the XMB more and native on the PS3. This is what your competitor does and it works very well. For all things PSblog wise we should have an app or something of the like one the XMB that displays such updates and information to the users so they are more or less forced to learn and are up to date on things. The Playstaion has a big issue with that currently.

Nice ADD ON, I thank you for doing that, and for those specific companies to allow you to do that, much thanks to them as well. I have a feeling that within 5 minutes of posting this, each of those listed, probably had their systems crash because they got flooded with e-mails lol. I love that idea and it’s a great thing to see. it’s cool to see that you are giving us their information.

Sorry to spam unrelated threads, Sid, but can you check something out for me, please.

It might be just me, but I’m having serious trouble viewing Blog, Blog Share and the PS Forum

Google Chrome: Can not log in to Blog or Blog Share, although forums work fine
IE9: Can log in, but the layout voting boxes on Blog Share is all messed up
PS3 Browser: Can’t log in to Blog or Blog Share, layout on share is messed up, and forum threads often get cut off after the first post

Is anyone else having the same issues as me?

The Google Chrome problems only started a few days ago, so I don’t know if it is Google’s, the Blog’s or my own problem

    I use Chrome in Windows XP and everything’s hunky-dory. I’ll check into this, but yours is the only report I’ve heard.

I’m having none of these problems, and I use both Google Chrome and the PS3 Browser.
