PlayStation Premieres at Sundance 2011

Sr. PR Specialist, Hardware

Hi Everyone! Part of my job here at PlayStation is to get out into the wild and show off our latest and greatest. Of course there are the usual events – e.g. E3, CES, GDC, Comic-con, etc.—where we often get to interact with all of you lovely readers. But every now and then we head out to more mainstream events to exhibit what’s new from PlayStation. This year, we were able to stop by the Sundance Film Festival, where some of our friends in Hollywood got to check out the PlayStation Green Room at Silver.

A general view of atmosphere at the PlayStation Green Room at Silver on January 21, 2011 in Park City, Utah.

As most of you know, the Sundance Film Festival is the premiere showcase for independent films. At the PlayStation Green Room, Sundance attendees were able to get their hands on AAA titles such as Killzone 3, inFAMOUS 2, and MLB 11: The Show, to name a few. We had a number of your favorite stars come by and found some unlikely fanboys/girls among them. Terrence Howard, Susan Sarandon, Jeremy Piven, Rob Lowe, Zooey Deschanel and more were spotted at the PlayStation Green Room. We even had a chance to meet Kratos himself – Brandon Molale, who did the motion capture for Kratos in the original God of War. We thought we’d share a few pics, so be sure to check them out below — and see more pics on our Flickr account.

Is there a Doctor in the house? Jesse Williams (“Grey’s Anatomy”) played Killzone 3 like a pro using the PlayStation Move sharp shooter.

With NGP, new PlayStation Move experiences, stereoscopic 3D games, and a slew of AAA titles coming this year, we’re sure to be on the road again soon. We love hearing from all of you so feel free to stop by and say hello if we’re in your area!

*sigh* there’s a wii zapper clone being used to play a playstation fps, but there’s STILL no official keyboard and mouse adapter for the Playstation 3.

Charliesdad said:

January 31st, 6:21 pm

wow….rich, spoiled celebrities getting even more perks and privileges that regular folks don’t get and they didn’t earn.
Glad Sony is getting more aggressive about their presence, but how about showing up at PAX East this year (you totally bailed on it last year) where actual fans and gamers can get their hands on the new gear and software?

Spacerac said:

January 31st, 6:23 pm

Unfortunately since it’ll soon only be a year since I’ve made the switch from PS2 to PS3, I’ve still got a whole bunch of games left to play. Thankfully those games are now cheaper, and I won’t be able to wait for the stuff this year to get any cheaper so I’ll be totally renting them when they get released. :)

TallCrowe said:

Dragun619 said:

January 31st, 6:36 pm

That is one dope game room….*clicks Like button even though it doesn’t exist*. Will there be a similar awesome game area like this when I go to Comic Con San Diego this year?

Also, Do you guys know what NamcoBandai are hinting at with their teaser site, Is there going to be an event happening soon?


January 31st, 6:42 pm

Zooey Deschanel was there! Oh man thats awesome! Great pics guys!


January 31st, 6:43 pm

P.S. are you guys gonna be at Coachella? I wasn’t able to work last years Oasis because of school, heres hoping I get another invite from GAP


January 31st, 6:43 pm

Susan Sarandon is very competitive! She’s got her own ping-pong club going on in NYC & LA, I believe. But they had a special ping-pong thing for Sundance.

Also, awesome Sackboy avatar, Abby! He looks different than the LBP2 CE Sackboy, as in more happier! Ever since Mike Fahey from Kotaku described the one in the LBP2 CE as a “corpse in a body bag”, that’s all I think about when I see it (minus the body bag it came in)!

Wow, every time I see that Move Sharpshooter, it makes me more and more ecstatic to have pre-ordered Killzone 3 and the Sharpshooter!

Of course, the fact that all of it was paid for with birthday money doesn’t hurt, either. :)

The next 3 weeks is gonna be terrib… oh wait! The KZ3 Beta with Move support starts in 2.5 days!!!

Thank you Sony!

MysteryMeatwad said:

I love the article “PS3 2011 preview: 20 exclusive games” It’s the article I always link people to when I want to show off all the amazing games I’m going to be playing this year.

Yes I do believe I saw scott wolf and terrence howard swinging the move like a baseball bat! I can live happy now alone by myself and the MLB the Show. Thanks for the update Abbey! And those couches look so comfy, too bad they’re all the way in Utah! hah
