PlayStation NBA All-Star Weekend, Custom PSPGos & PS3 Games

50°
217w ago - Today Public Relations Manager Alex Armour has blogged about the PlayStation NBA All-Star weekend, which features custom PSPGos, PS3 games and more!

To quote: The convergence of athletes and videogames was apparent this past weekend as PlayStation once again powered up the official NBA Players' Lounge at NBA All-Star Weekend in Dallas.

This was yet again a great opportunity to give players and families a chance to relax, get some food and drink, and play some of the latest PlayStation games including MLB 10: The Show, Gran Turismo 5, ModNation Racers and God of War III.

Of course we didn't just leave it at that. We also brought back the custom laser etching machine to carve some customized designs into PSPgos and wooden cases to provide for the all-star players. The PSPs were painted with unique all-star colors in a variety of styles, and etched with a design of the player's choice.

The laser machine went into overtime though, as the team laser etched the customized PSP boxes, a variety of notebooks, and even random guest items like phones and laptops. Additionally, Sony Electronics was kind enough to donate some equipment to also include for the players.

It was incredibly...
 

ModNation Racers PS3 Beta Final Lap is This Weekend

200°
218w ago - SCEE's European Product Manager Liam Quigley has announced that this weekend marks the final lap for the ModNation Racers PS3 Beta.

To quote: So this is the LAST WEEKEND you will be able to play the ModNation Beta. Sadly all good things have to come to an end.

For those of you who got on to the Beta and only had a quick play I would suggest you go back and just revisit the Madness and see how creative your fellow ModNation fans have been.

From some awesome wild and wacky race tracks that have completely blown my mind to some of the most amazingly creative Mods and Karts.

All I can say is thank you for testing the game and being so creative with a small amount of tools.

Finally, last week on the blog I challenged you to create a few more PlayStation Characters. You guys surprised even me with the most amazing Buzz, Jak and Daxter creations I've ever seen.

Well done guys you did me proud. Enjoy your last weekend of playing.
 

Sony PlayStation's VGAs Weekend Event Recap

50°
227w ago - Over the weekend we saw a lot of videos coming out of SpikeTV's VGAs, and today Sony's Social Media Manager Jeff Rubenstein has shared a recap of PlayStation's VGAs weekend event.

To quote: Congratulations to Naughty Dog (UNCHARTED 2 won three awards, including Game of the Year), thatgamecompany (Flower took Best Independent Game), and Sony Santa Monica Studios (God of War III is your Most Anticipated Game) for their Video Game Awards wins this weekend.

And thanks go to the 100 PlayStation fans who joined us to celebrate these wins in Hollywood on Saturday evening. It was a truly fun time, and the reaction of the crowd when UNCHARTED 2 claimed Game of the Year/Best PS3 Game/Best Graphics was made all the sweeter by the fact that several Naughty Dogs were there to watch along with us.

Along the way we raffled off multiple copies of our biggest games of the year (Killzone 2, inFAMOUS, Ratchet & Clank Future: A Crack in Time, UNCHARTED 2 and more), a couple of super-rare James Grayson-inspired Resistance:...
