151w ago - Today Sony's Senior Vice President of Marketing & PlayStation Network Peter Dille has shared a few videos from the new 'Step Your Game Up' PSP and PSPgo campaign which feature Kevin Butler and Marcus Rivers.
To quote: Back in September, I had the pleasure of introducing a new face to the PlayStation Nation through our "It Only Does Everything" ad campaign for PlayStation 3.
You've blown us away with an outpouring of positive feedback to the campaign and for Kevin Butler. In fact, the response was so great that we invited Kevin to E3 where he brought down the house.
We also showed the first glimpse of a new campaign featuring Kevin's new apprentice, Marcus Rivers, who wants to help spread the word about fact that the PSP and PSPgo are the only true solutions for those gamers who want to play the best, richest and deepest games on the go.
Today I'm excited to share with you more of this new "Step Your Game Up" campaign, currently airing on over 19 networks as well as during several high-profile events.

151w ago - The eagle eyes at JustPushStart.com (linked above) spotted a limited time GameStop promotion on trade-ins today, which offers up to $200 in store credit on used PS3 entertainment systems.
For those who aren't worried about losing OtherOS functionality, you can now trade in your old PlayStation 3 console for $200 credit towards a less-shiny new PS3 Slim model... just be sure to do so before the offer ends on July 18, 2010.
To quote: "By trading in a PS3 with one controller and the AV cables, GameStop will offer you a big $200 bucks (store credit). It doesn't matter if you have the fat or the slim PS3s. The store will gladly give you a store credit of $200 regardless of what model. Just make sure it works though!
Trading it towards something else is a great idea for this deal. Don't miss it! It only last until July 18th."
