This week, Jeff, Rey and I dispersed across the US to host a series of grand opening community events for our Vita Hill social clubs. I took on New York City and Boston, Jeff took Chicago, and Rey took Miami and Atlanta. The response was phenomenal: In NYC alone, more than 300 community members lined up to play PS Vita on Tuesday night; in Boston, more than 200 members braved icy winds for Wednesday’s showcase. As always, it was a treat to meet the PlayStation community (the best in the business, if you ask me) and quiz them on their favorite games. Thanks for coming out, guys!
Don’t forget: Vita Hill social clubs in eight US cities are open seven days a week through PS Vita’s launch on February 22nd (get details and info here). They’re open to the public and there’s no catch — come by and play PS Vita as many times as you want!
In other news this week, the team behind UNCHARTED: Golden Abyss showed off new motion-capture footage, Square Enix showed off its upcoming PSN release Scarygirl, our EU correspondent James Gallagher scored an outstanding interview with PS Vita designer Tokashi Sogabe, Jeff spoke with SCE President and CEO Andrew House concerning PS Vita, and The Tester teased first footage of Season 3 (Nolan North!).
