As Orlando and its various Disney attractions are popular holiday destinations for those of us in the UK, I thought it would be worth sharing this piece from the US PlayStation.Blog about the revamped ESPN Wide World Of Sports complex. Now when you travel to the Sunshine State you can do so safe in the knowledge there’s plenty of gaming to be done when you get there. Here’s Ginger Kraus from SCEA to tell you more:
We’re always looking for ways to extend the PlayStation experience by creating new opportunities for you, our PlayStation fans, to interact with our products whether you’re in the comfort of your own home or on-the-go. It’s because of this that we’re happy to share our latest “magical” installment with you.
This weekend, Disney celebrated the re-launch of the re-imagined ESPN Wide World of Sports complex in suburban Orlando, Florida. As part of the newly revamped, state-of-the-art facility, we’ve teamed up with Disney to create an exclusive game pavilion for all things PlayStation.
The PlayStation Pavilion at ESPN Wide World of Sports Complex showcases an evolving line-up of the latest PlayStation games including favorites from our publishing partners and our first party studios. The PlayStation Pavilion will play host to some of our biggest titles and PlayStation exclusives such as UNCHARTED 2: Among Thieves, MLB 10: The Show, inFAMOUS, Buzz! Quiz World, LittleBigPlanet, and MAG all on 40” TVs in glorious HD. The Pavilion is also outfitted with its own stage where you can grab the mic and jam to your favorite tunes.
We’ll also be working with Disney to host on-site tournaments and “gamer nights,” where leader boards positioned throughout ESPN Wide World of Sports Complex will keep you apprised of the latest standings and give others a chance to challenge your high score.
Disney says it best, sometimes you really do have to see to believe. Fortunately, we were on-site for the Hollywood-style ‘green’ carpet re-launch event and managed to sneak in a few shots of what awaits you just outside the Magic Kingdom. Hope to see your name on the leader board soon!
