- Sony's Social Media Manager Jeff Rubenstein
has revealed that those who attend the GDC 2010 San Francisco meetup can get a chance to play God of War III on PS3 early!
To quote: Come celebrate the release of the most anticipated game
of 2010 - by playing it early!
Earlier today, we sent this God of War III invite out to media, industry luminaries, heads of state, space marines, surviving Greek and Roman gods, and select reality TV show stars (nobody from celebrity rehab shows, thankyouverymuch).
Assuming you don't fit into one of those categories, we did what we always do here at PlayStation.Blog: score extra tickets for you community members.
We've got a couple HUNDRED tickets to get some of our close, personal friends (this means *you*) into this super-exclusive event, where you'll get to go hands-on with the final, polished version of God of War III
, enjoy our legendary hospitality, and watch a Really-Awesome-Band-That-I-Can't-Name-Yet perform.
What do you need to do? Well - just show up.
Based on previous meet-ups we've held, we know some of you will get there early. For this event - we're expecting it. Heck, we're practically demanding it!
While the hands-on event doesn't start until 7pm - we're setting up a Community-Only pre-event party that goes on all day. We'll have free food from 12:00 p.m. to 1:00 p.m. (Tacos of the Gods, anyone?), limited edition schwag giveaways, free wi-fi (we expect you to Tweet!), the chance to put yourself on the God of War III box, autographs with the developers and CHAOS... in the form of games, of course. We've got some really good stuff planned, so take the day off, make the drive from LA/Vegas/St. Louis, and get there early!
This event will be limited, so if you want to go, be sure to RSVP on our Facebook event page
Here are some important details:
• The hands-on event goes from 7-10pm on Wednesday, March 10, 2010 at the SF Concourse Exhibition Center. The pre-party meet-up begins at noon (you'll see our tent in venue's parking lot). Directions here
. Don't even think of strolling up at 6.30pm - you ain't getting in!
• Keep in mind that you must be 21 or older to get into evening hands-on event, but anyone 18+ (or with their parent/guardian) can come to the all-day meetup. ID *will* be checked!
• Parking is rough in the area, so try to take BART
- both very close to venue.
• Once you're in, you're in – no ins and outs (don't worry, we will have bathrooms). Unless of course you don't want to stick around for the amazingly awesome hands-on event at 7pm. Then you're free to leave at will...but you're making a HUGE mistake!
• You must RSVP via this Facebook event invite
• Be sure to leave your replica Blades of Chaos at home
• You might wanna think about bringing your PSP ;-)
The End Begins at GDC
