I can’t believe I’m writing this, but your friendly neighborhood PlayStation.Blog officially hits the big 1-0 today. Before moving onto tomorrow’s PlayStation Live From E3 2017 programming, I wanted to write you a personal thank-you note — and take a quick stroll down memory lane.
I bet some of you were wondering why we put a “select a language” option at the top of the Blog when we launched our recent redesign. Today I’m pleased to announce that the PlayStation.Blog is now extending service to a new region – Latin America. Over the past few years, PlayStation has increased its presence in Central and South America, and beginning today, you’ll have the news source to go along with it: PlayStation.Blog en Español.
As with this site, PSBeE (I think we’ll have to work on a better acronym ^_^) will be your go-to source for all things PlayStation from around Latin America, including the latest news, interviews, event info, and more. Additionally, as much of the content will be similar across the sites, those of you in the US and Canada who are more comfortable reading and interacting in Spanish should feel welcome to visit this new blog. Your existing login will work just fine.
Today, we’re quite ecstatic to unveil the new look of the PlayStation.Blog. As the site marches towards its 4th anniversary in June, the patchwork, add-on look of these pages began to resemble the Weasley house. Also, we were tired of being unfavorably compared to our more attractive, cosmopolitan European sister site.
Unlike commercial sites, we didn’t redesign to serve you more ads, or because we have an in-house art staff that we have to justify. We redesigned the PlayStation.Blog with your requests in mind. How do we know what you’re looking for? You’ve been voting with your clicks.
Over the past year, we’ve been analyzing where readers click on the site and, as you can see, items like PlayStation Store update posts and recent stories light up like a Christmas tree.
I wanted to use the last post of 2010 to take a quick look back and talk a bit about what we’re working on for early next year. 2010 has been a year of tremendous growth for the PlayStation Social Media program – average weekly page views have nearly doubled (to about 2 million), our […]
