E3 is officially back, and last night’s huge LA PlayStation.Blog meet-up was proof! We heard rumors before we got to Mama’s Hot Tamales that a line began forming as early as 9:30AM. But the sight of hundreds of PlayStation fans extending around the corner was almost overwhelming. Perhaps it was the smell of the delicious home-cooked Tamales, the early co-op access to Fireteam Bravo 3, or the first hundred people earning access to the Sony Press Conference (surprise, surprise…those hundred also gained access to the E3 show floor!) that drew the crowd.
Regardless, simply hanging out with Jeff, myself and hundreds of other excited PlayStation gamers was awesome enough justify the trip. Huge thanks to all who showed up and to everyone at Mama’s. And for those who couldn’t make the trip, below are some of the highlights (check our Flickr page for all the pics). Here’s to a great PS E3, and we’ll see you next time!
This is merely half the line outside Mama’s prior to opening. I bet Mama would love PlayStation to stop by every day! And in turn, I’d love one of these tamales for lunch every day of my life.

Yes! Hip Hop Gamer is a regular at our meet-ups, shooting some vids from within the line and chatting it up with Jeff.

The craziness inside. Seriously, this place was packed. Sometimes you have to endure some sweatiness to get the goods.
