You Are Invited to PS3T's 5th Birthday
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 ):

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.

Gah, and I just started a new job. While I probably won't be able to make a Saturday competition, I should be able to hit that Sunday Killzone 2.

Resistance 2 will be competitive multiplayer mate. I say competitive, but a lot of people just sign up for a bit of fun and to hang out with other members from the site. You'll need 100 posts to participate, but trust me, you'll have a great time. Definitely recommended :)

Needing 100 posts is a bit unfair since I have posted way over 100 times in these posts and none of them add to my posts...

I don't either of those games. If all of them are something I don't own (and I own a lot of games) I'm gonna be pissed.

^ Ok, I don't own any of them. This is just as I feared. Looks like I can't participate. Horrible choices.

Damn, I'd love to play BF:BC2 but I'll still be at work. Can you join these things late or do you have to be there on time?

@22 @23

KZ2 has finished unfortunately. We've still got BFBC2, U3 and NFS Most Wanted though. Be sure to sign up for those! Uncharted 3 is free on the PS Store for those that do not currently own it.


You can join later, but you would have to sign up for the reserves. Depending on how late you are, we may still be going. Best bet would be to sign up and mention how much later you think you'll be. Then it's just a case of contacting group hosts when you come online. :)
