"Calling all PlayStation faithfuls, we're inviting you to come and prove yourself on games before they're released, battle it out with the best of the best, win prizes, and speak face to face with your gaming heroes. While other people can only talk about future games, you can be launching yourself into them for real at our first ever PlayStation BETA event in Birmingham."
"So what kind of crumbling apocalyptic cities can you race through and what kind of power struggles can you get caught up in? For a taster of what's about to be unleashed on the market, you can sample all of these at the event: The Fight Move Edition, Kung Fu Rider, Sports Champions, Killzone 3 Dualshock, Motorstorm Apocolypse, GT5, Dead Nation, Eat Them, Heavy Rain Move Edition."
"We'll even stage a Motorstorm Apocolypse tournament. The prize? The champion of each session not only escapes a natural catastrophe but also wins a Sony 3DTV. And if you can't dodge enough flying concrete to claim a prize, don't curl up in shame as there are limited edition take homes for everyone. And there's free food and drink throughout, to fuel your shooting/racing/zombie addiction."
