161w ago - Sony's Creative Services Director Joby Hirschfeld of Channel Marketing and Events has announced today that beginning tomorrow the PlayStation Lounge will officially open in Manhattan and guarantees access to the PlayStation Move motion controller in addition to the latest PS3 and PSP software line-up.
To quote: I'm stopping by today to pull back the curtain on a new project that we've been hard at work on for consumers in the New York area.
Opening tomorrow afternoon at 550 Madison in New York City's Manhattan is the brand new PlayStation Lounge, the only place where you're guaranteed to get your hands on the all new PlayStation Move motion controller, in addition to PS3's, PSP's and the incredible line-up of software that accompanies them.
This site holds significance for our brand as it is not only the location of our New York SonyStyle Store, but also home to Sony headquarters in New York City.
The PlayStation Lounge, located in the lower level of the building, was designed from the ground up to provide you with a one-stop-shop for all your PlayStation needs. It's the must-hit destination if you're still trying to get your hands on PlayStation Move or searching for the latest PlayStation first and third-party games.
169w ago - Sony's Social Media Manager Jeff Rubenstein has announced today that those who wish to experience PlayStation Move in San Francisco can do so this Friday along with winning some prizes and lounging in Kevin Butler's office!
To quote: As you know, the PlayStation Move will be available this weekend, and to help give you a preview of the fun times ahead, we've set up "PlayStation HQ" locations in cities throughout the U.S. so you can get some hands-on time with the games before launch.
I haven't had a chance to drop by and prop my feet on Kevin Butler's desk, so I'm planning to rectify that this Friday.
Why don't you join me? I promise to bring along pizza, schwag, and even some PlayStation Move bundles and software to raffle off to those who visit.
The cool thing about these venues is, we're granting hands-on time with some of these Move-enabled games that most people have never tried. Here's the title list for Friday night's meet-up:
• LittleBigPlanet 2
• Resident Evil 5: Gold Edition
• The Shoot
• Time Crisis: Razing Storm
• Singstar Dance
• Sports Champions
• The Fight: Lights Out

249w ago - Irem became the latest publisher to join up with Sony's Home virtual world as it offered today a first look at its very own virtual lounge.
Similar to Bandai Namco's lounge, the Irem space is meant to be a general area for the publisher rather than for a particular game.
To quote: Named "Irem Plaza" ("Irem Hiroba" in Japanese), this lounge has been designed in image of a Japanese festival. Visitors will find the types of sights and activities one might find at a Japanese-style carnival, including booths and areas for food, shooting, fireworks, and Bon Odori.
The lounge will also offer a variety of items, including traditional "yutaka" festival clothing for player avatars and R-9 figures from R-Type as furniture items.
The lounge promises four areas from the start:
• Observation Deck Allows visitors to look out onto the beach and see fireworks and the setting sun
• Message Board Details lounge events and information about new stalls
• Night Stalls Players can play mini games and purchase items here
• Yagura (Watch Tower) This is the central area of the lounge where players will gather
The lounge will also eventually be updated with a special game lounge...
