You Are Invited to PS3T's 5th Birthday
Written Wednesday, June 12, 2013 By olsen77
As we approach June 30th, it's that time of year to celebrate again (and I'm not referring to Mike Tyson's 47th birthday). On June 30th, 2008, PS3T was born. Five years later, we're going stronger than ever. We were discussing how we could celebrate the site's 5th birthday. We looked at what we did last year with Call of Duty 4, and that was the line we had to beat this year.
We started the month off with the Battlefield 3 tournament, which is due to finish this weekend. However, we weren't finished there. We wanted something bigger and better. Yeah, we could have stuck to a similar theme by holding a game night for the likes of GT5 or World at War (both of which being the 5th instalments), but we decided to mix things up a little instead of taking the easy option. You guys also predicted that within moments of the birthday being mentioned in the wishlist thread, and predictable wasn't something we wanted.
This year we're running five game nights. That's five opportunities you have to join in and celebrate with us! Not only that, we wanted to make each game night sentimental to each year that PS3T has existed. The first game is from 2008, the second from 2009, etc. Here is the schedule (we've left the last couple unannounced to keep you on your toes ):
- Resistance 2 (2008) - Saturday 22nd (8:30pm BST)
- Killzone 2 (2009) - Sunday 23rd (8:30pm BST)
- ??? (2010) - Friday 28th (8:30pm BST)
- ??? (2011) - Saturday 29th (8:30pm BST)
- ??? (2012) - Sunday 30th (8:30pm BST)
Better yet, you get a unique award for participating in your first of these events. It doesn't matter which game night is your first, any of those will send the unique award your way. We also understand that some of you will participate in more than one of these events. Don't worry, you'll still be rewarded for your participation. As you have the unique award already, any further game nights will count towards the usual award we have. So there you have it, we're pleased to finally make this announcement.
On a final note, we have a nice surprise heading your way on the 30th. Be sure to check in and find out what it is.
