Sony's PlayStation Experience won Christmas before it even began

Ben Kuchera writes: The PlayStation Experience was part victory lap, part E3 and part PAX, but now that we're a few days out from the event we can clearly see its real value. This was one of the best pieces of marketing any console manufacturer has put on in the past few years, with enough big news to justify its awkward timing and the fact that so many industry folks and press flew out to Las Vegas to attend.

If you build it they will come. This is really just too cool down xbox one price cut.

Actually it was to celebrate 20 years of PlayStation, as well as promote their line-up of games for next year. They have a lot coming within the first three months alone, they need to show them off and properly support them

But no nice Christmas theme for all the money and support they've had out of us.

Or at least an editor so the gamers can create some.

medman1197d ago

I agree, I miss custom themes. But are you really whining about no free Christmas theme? They just gave us a nice anniversary theme.

The_KELRaTH1197d ago

Not whining but you can gauge what a company thinks of it's customers by the little things of which a Christmas theme would have been one.

It doesn't make them a profit or act as a marketing tool yet most appreciate it and think positively about the experience.

Yup , and by the looks of the sales charts Sony's genius strategy worked. The Xbones sales have stalled out and there is no sign of an uptick any time soon. There's no way Microsoft can afford to sell Xbones for any less than they are now.

Kribwalker1198d ago

I don't think it has stalled out, as it is still number 8 on Amazon and number one on bestbuy

hmmm...the event was announced before the X1 price cut. It takes months to put these things together. Are you saying that Sony can predict the future?

It was a fantastic way to celebrate 20 years of PlayStation, and show off more exclusives and games to come

This is cool, and now I have a bunch of reading to catch up on lol. The title of this article is so awkward. Who can win Christmas? I've never even heard that term before. And how can something win something that's not here yet, from a show that's the first of its kind?

Dat journalizm

Its kind of like How the Grinch Stole Christmas.

I mean come on, no one can actually steal Christmas. What are they gonna do? Hide Christmas under their trench coat and casually walk out of the store? And exactly what store would be selling Christmas? Thats impossible too.

Unlike other gaming shows throughout the year this one was 4 the players.

Xavior_Reigns1198d ago

No... not enough AAA


Common sense the big reveals would be for E3. Still PSX was pretty good, next year should be much better.

KiwiViper851198d ago

Are you meaning next years PSX?

I think it was a one off 20th anniversary celebration.

MysticStrummer1198d ago

@Kiwi - One of the first things said during the keynote was that it was the first annual PSX.
