With Christmas and the Sale season not far behind us, it’s the time of the year when thousands of new online gamers visit our platform for the first time. Maybe you’ve been going easy on them, maybe you haven’t :)
Here at PlayStation we believe that while there’s certainly a time and a place for closing the proverbial shutters and getting stuck into a beefy, immersive solo campaign, playing online is where gaming can get really interesting.
And we’ve been speaking to you over the past couple of weeks about some of your favourite online multi-player moments. Is it reaping glorious vengeance over your best mate? The friendly tips that have helped you level up? Shedding a tear over a departed companion in Journey, or proposing to your partner via the medium of LittleBigPlanet? Or maybe it was that time you wagered a week’s free lunch against your best mate on the outcome of a game of FIFA – and won… or lost.
We’ve called it The Way of Play (#wayofplay) because we want you to demonstrate those moments that best capture what it’s really like playing online with other people
PSN Way of Play
n. pl. Ways of Play
A gaming mantra, related to different aspects of online gaming life, that exemplifies why playing online against – or alongside – real living, breathing people rather than computer AI is where gaming comes to life. e.g. Couples who slay together, stay together; Actions speak louder than smack-talk
So, we’re running a competition (through our partner TalentHouse) to celebrate the true awesomeness of playing online, and we’re calling on you to bring to life what multi-player gaming means to you and to share some of your favourite moments.
All you have to do is put together a video or piece of art or send a photo that exemplifies what you love about online play. You can use one of our Way of Play mantras as inspiration or even make your own. Check out the clips below for a few of our own attempts.
We’re looking for creative, original and entertaining submissions – we want to see things that make us smile, laugh, give us goosebumps or reduce us to tears (in a good way!). Good luck!
