PlayStation All-Stars Trivia Tweet-up Starts Now

Josh Sepielli's Avatar Posted by Associate Brand Manager, Software SCEA

Hey PlayStation Nation! A couple of weeks ago we released “The All-Star” for all of the PlayStation All-Stars Battle Royale fans out there. From the more than five million views it got in two days, we’re guessing that you liked it. For the hardcore PlayStation fans, we layered in more than 30 Easter eggs referencing the playable characters, levels, and some classic PlayStation heritage.

People have been decoding Easter eggs in the comments, and our friends over at IGN recently filmed a Rewind Theater of “The All-Star” the same day it came out. IGN did a great job finding a handful of our Easter eggs — but they didn’t find all of them! So we’re turning to our fans to help uncover more, as well as relive some key moments in PlayStation history, with a Trivia tweet up.

Here are the deets: Starting today and progressing through the next few days, we’ll be tweeting trivia questions from @PlayStation to find out who can answer tough questions about the game, the film, the characters, and general PlayStation history. Along the way, we’ll be flagging random US participants to score one of 500 digital copies of PlayStation All-Stars Battle Royale on both PS3 and PS Vita. Just be sure to mark your response tweets with #PlayStationAllStars!

We’ll pick 20 50 random winners in the US region for each trivia question, two per day. When the contest is complete, we’ll Direct Message out the codes to the winners on or before November 20th — launch day!

Time to put your PlayStation cred to the test. Are you in?

Add Your Own

As a Canadian, would “ya’ll” mind if I pretended to be American for a few days? Oh well, good luck everyone, cool ( sneaky advertising) contest.

getting more and more interested in the game since i’m hearing there are lots of collectables and things for people to do outside of playing online. I’m watching the live stream of All Stars on IGN right now. :)

“US participants”

That just killed the article for me. :-( Why doesn’t Canada get any love in most of these contests?

I wish we could get these things in the Playstation Network. Instead of always needing to deal with twitter and facebook BS.

‘US participants’ , that killed all my enthusiasm and the excitement. There are so many EU fans, kinda unfair if Canada and EU dont get it. C’mon, 500 copys?? It isn’t enough to share to EU and Canada? Not another US only please :/…

Ok when u say in the us region that means Puerto Rico its not available to participate again right….?

DarkOne_PR said:

November 14th, 4:25 pm


at least u guys have a psblog eu with ur own constest and all that… Puerto Rico gets NOTHING! ZERO! even being part of the US.

I hope they get Crash Bandicoot and his gang; and some other tekken characters, not to mention someone/something from Resistance.

Oh Canada, our home and native land, overlooked by all, especially the American.
But good luck to all who participate.

Two down. Awesome giveaway guys. Do these digital copies come with the pre order bonus costumes? That would be great if it did, if not this is still a mega give away. Good to know how soaked with history that All Stars video is. Great stuff.

I can’t wait. ^.^ If I can’t win one I’m gonna have to wait till Christmas to get my copy. That’s WAY too long in my opinion.

Puerto Rico is not a state nor do the people pay taxes to the US.

That must be why you are not included in the contest. <– sarcasm

Love the promotion! Really cool way to get all the fans excited for the launch!

GrayWolf323 said:

November 15th, 9:28 am

will winners be notified before the 20th? I’m hoping to win but if I don’t I wanna jump on the preorder deal for the bonus costumes before it’s too late

NewYorkNative28 said:

November 15th, 1:04 pm

@31 I was thinking the same thing. I have posted answers to all of the questions so far on Twitter with hashtags to help keep #PlayStationAllStars trending. Not sure if I will win a free copy, but it’s worth spreading the word for a game that is a blast to play.

Best regards.

I’ve seen some people tweeting that they’ve won a copy.
I wonder if they’re all being given out at the same time or staggered.
