PlayStation is Looking for a Few Good Gamers

Scott Steinberg's Avatar Posted by VP of Product Marketing


Hello PlayStation Nation,

We work day-in and day-out here at PlayStation to ensure that you never run out of reasons to be a proud PlayStation fan. It’s our way of saying “Thank you” to the millions of you around the world who demonstrate your passion and dedication to PlayStation on a daily basis. However, sometimes a simple thank you just isn’t enough to truly show our gratitude and that’s why we’re ready to take things one step further.

I’m joining you today to announce that we’re looking for a few good gamers to help us with a special assignment related to our new Long Live Play campaign (yes, we are intentionally being Chimera-like stealthy to pique your curiosity). I’m talking die-hard members of our PlayStation Nation from all over who are ready and willing to proudly wave the PlayStation flag for all to see. If you think you’re the ultimate PlayStation gamer, then we want to hear from you!

Send me an email at playstationgamer@playstation.sony.com by 10:00AM PT on Tuesday, 9/20/11 with the following:

• 30 words or less (yes we’ll be counting), telling us why you are the ultimate PlayStation gamer.
• Then attach a high-quality picture of you holding your PS3 controller in the environment you love to game in. It could be on your couch, in your man-cave or your desk chair in your dorm room —wherever you spend your time taking down enemy forces, racing dream cars, knocking out home runs and uncovering long-lost treasure.

I know PlayStation has the best fans out there and I can’t wait to see what you come up with! We’ll report back here shortly with more details….

I sent in a picture of me wearing my playstation headset and 3d glasses holding a move controller in front of my 55 inch bravia showing my trophy progress, with my PS3 and Playstation soundbar underneath.

I’m hoping this will involve gamers being involved in the development process with Sony’s first party devs getting feedback as the game development progresses, since a few games lately have been big disappointments. Namely GT5, Killzone 3 and Motorstorm Apocalyse. The former two in particular are supposed to be flagship titles but are both 84 on Metacritic, while their counterparts on other consoles are in the 90s. Had the devs gotten feedback along the way maybe they would have turned out better games.

Another ploy by Playstation/Sony to drum up support for its failing brand.

I could really impress with my Uncharted 2 t-shirt, Infamous 2 backpack, Move and DS3 controller…. but not going to bother. My living room is a nightmare, and my allegiance is not exclusive, it is shared with a big green monster.

The hardest thing about this was finding a way to take a photo of myself. I downloaded the cameratimer app for my iphone and set it to take multishot then put together my email and done :)

Hopefully a 4mb pic of my goofy mug wasn’t too big for your (I’m sure) increasingly full Inbox.

I’m gonna have to think about this Sony is my all time favorite company (game, electronic, etc.) and the Playstation 3 is my all time favorite system. Is this one of those “once in a life-time opportunities”?

AsianInvasian603 said:

September 14th, 7:23 pm

Ah what the heck, I’ve been a Playstation fan and gamer since I was in Elementary School, I’ll send a picture and email.

I wrote more than 30 words! I couldn’t help it. By the way, I’m waiting to send it right now…It’s done, but…My computer is super slow & my attached file (picture with me holding controller) hasn’t finished “uploading to email” :/ I’ve been waiting for 30 minutes..I’ve tried twice :(
Oh well…What if it won’t work for me? What do I do?

SynysterJak said:
