235w ago - Today Sony's Social Media Manager Jeff Rubenstein has announced that SCEA has teamed up with IGN for a Haiti charity event.

To quote: We have watched in horror and sorrow as the events in Haiti have unfolded over the past few weeks.

As millions are suffering through conditions unimaginable to us, it's kind of hard to know how to even begin to help. Last week, [Register or Login to view links] came to us with an idea that gamers could get behind - a [Register or Login to view links].

Starting at 9am Pacific, the IGN crew will be broadcasting live for 12 hours, and taking donations for [Register or Login to view links].

236w ago - SCEE Social Media Manager Jem Alexander has shared a video today on the Europeam PlayStation Blog which includes timelapse footage from a recent Sony MAG256 PS3 event.

To quote: I'll have a full report from our MAG256 event – including more video, photos and more – on Friday, after I've got my breath back.

Many of you were there in spirit, using the [Register or Login to view links] Twitter hashtag to appear on our event Twitter wall. Thanks to all of you who did and, indeed, to all of you who showed up and helped give [Register or Login to view links] a good pounding! (Well, once at least).

To tide you over until Friday, here's a timelapse video of the setup process for the now legendary "256″ structure that housed our brave soldiers during the event. I think you'll agree it's a pretty impressive feat of engineering.

So here's the video. I'll be back with more very soon, but right now, I'm off for a lie down. I think I've got shell shock...

237w ago - Sony Social Media Manager Jeff Rubenstein has shared a CES 2010 event video today on the PlayStation Blog and also revealed some new MAG PS3 tournament details, as follows:

Not all the talk at this year's [Register or Login to view links] was about 3D. Last Thursday, [Register or Login to view links] and SCEA hosted a CES MAG event at the Aria Las Vegas.

One hundred community members (some from as far away as New York!) and a host of gaming and consumer electronics media joined us to celebrate MAG going gold, but the hospitality didn't end at the hors d'oeuvres line; the first attendees through the door will receive a free retail copy of MAG later this month.

If you weren't one of the lucky attendees but would still like to see some of the action from last week's event, head on over to our [Register or Login to view links] where you can see the highlights.

Right after we announced the gift, [Register or Login to view links] Designer Ben Jones talked with me about what Zipper learned in the beta process to make the final launch super smooth on January 26th.

And thanks go to the 100 PlayStation fans who joined us to celebrate these wins in Hollywood on Saturday evening.

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 [Register or Login to view links]

244w ago - Today PlayStation Home Online Community Specialist Locust_Star has announced news of a new Red Bull space and event, Fight Night Producer chat and more heading to PlayStation Home this week.

To quote: Mark your calendars - this Thursday, November 26th, the next phase of the wildly popular [Register or Login to view links] Island will be released in PlayStation Home. To complement the existing [Register or Login to view links] mini-game, Red Bull will unleash two brand new spaces that will appeal to sports fans and beach bunnies alike.

The first, an exhibition of action and adventure sports photographs from [Register or Login to view links]. The winning photograph from each of the competition's ten categories is displayed on large illuminate cubes, imitating the real-life exhibit.

The second is a [Register or Login to view links] mini-game where users can compete against one another by launching one of five wild flying machines off of a 30-foot high deck in hopes of achieving flight. Think: The Wright Brothers... or that time you and your genius buddies decided to pile into your wagon and take a ride off the roof.

He who flies the farthest wins the high spot on...
