Who likes gaming?

 

SCE UK and the EN PlayStation Community Team are teaming up to bring you a super-special gaming event for all you hardcore gamers out there. Its name?

 

The PlayStation Beta Rooms.

 

 

UPDATE: 


Thanks to everyone who has applied for a place at the PlayStation Beta Rooms. Due to (stupendously!) high demand, we're no longer accepting RSVP's sent to our email address.

 

For those of you who have already sent us an email - thanks for getting in touch! We'll be responding to you all before 6PM tomorrow (22nd July) to let you know if you've secured a place.

 

For everyone else - keep an eye on the forum for coverage of the event, along with pictures and round-ups from attendees.

 

...oh and you should probably know - PlayStation Beta Rooms is far from a one-off. Once the Birmingham event is done and dusted, we'll be plotting to return with a vengeance.

 

Watch this space! Much love - MB

 

“PlayStation BETA is our access all areas community for gamers. It’s an opportunity for us to reward you guys with trials of titles way ahead of release, invitations to exclusive content and an array of prizes to further enhance your gaming experience.

 

We’re inviting you to come and prove yourself on games before they’re released, battle it out with the best of the best, win awesome prizes, and speak face to face with your gaming heroes. While other people can only talk about future games, you can be launching yourself into them for real at our first ever BETA event in Birmingham.

 

So what kind of crumbling apocalyptic cities can you race through and what kind of power struggles can you get caught up in? For a taster of what’s about to be unleashed on the market, you can sample all of these at the event: Killzone 3, GT5, MotorStorm Apocalypse, LBP2, The Fight, Kung Fu Rider, Sports Champions, Heavy Rain Move Edition and many more.

 

We’ll even stage a MotorStorm Apocalypse tournament. The prize? The champion of each session not only escapes a natural catastrophe but also wins a Sony 3DTV. And if you can’t dodge enough flying concrete to claim a prize, don’t curl up in shame as there are limited edition take homes for everyone. And there’s free food and drink throughout, to fuel your shooting/racing/zombie addiction.

 

So if you want to thrust yourself into games no one else can get their hands on at the BETA event in Birmingham, sign up now"

 

 

Saturday 31st July: 6pm- 10pm

Sunday 1st August: 12pm- 4pm

 

UPDATE: Just to let you know that, because of the PEGI age restrictions on the titles on show at the PlayStation Beta Rooms event, we've been asked to restrict admissions to those who are 16+ only. - MB

 

See you there!

 

Much love -

 

MusterBuster.

Enjoy everyone, I did consider applying but 10 hrs round trip just a stretch too far, maybe if it was Newcastle which is 3 hrs each way. Well hopefully there will be one north of the border. Have a great one and kill some Helghan for me :-)

If you wanted to be ultra safe you could park in the bull ring car park and walk down the road to the custard factory (its 5 mins max)

 

Plenty of parking on the streets surrounding but then again....

 

Anyways see ya there saturday..

No sleep for you then, Alex... Dedication! That's what I like to see!

 

Nice one wolves. I hunted for that but couldn't find it. Was I just being blind or did you find it somewhere obscure?

Indeed; no way am I missing the chance to play KZ3!

 

And thanks, GgT-Wolves-FC, I looked up the Custard Factory and apparently it has 120 car parking places, I'll get there early and hope I can grab on there, otherwise I'll just use one of your tips :)

OMG! I wish I never went on holiday now as i've missed so much stuff, including this. :(

I would have loved the opportunity to join in on this event, I don't mind the travel to Birmingham either, it's not that far away from me. Ah well, guess I arrived too late. :(
