Today, along with the Press Release announcing SOE Live, we saw the first blog post by Linda “Brasse” Carlson about the new venue, some of the reasons why it was selected, and things we can look forward to improving and returning such as the Bazaar “phat loot” store and Player Panels.
HURRAH! SOE Live 2013 planning is underway! We will release regular updates every month, or even more often as we get closer to the event. Tell us what you want to know about on our forums, on Twitter (@SonyOnline) and on Facebook – we’ll get you the answers.
SOE Live is an unparalleled opportunity to exchange information and ideas with all of you and it’s just plain FUN – a weird and crazy sort of family reunion every year, each better than the last.
We warmly invite all players of our SOE games, but we’d love to have former players as well, whether you want to meet up with guildies or simply check out what’s going on with your old game. Bring along people who have not played our games yet – your extended friends and family are equally welcome to attend! This event is truly a “the more the merrier” gathering.
Kids will get in free again this year, so bring them along!
Experimentation leads to innovation
Yes, we are at a new venue for 2013! We took all of your detailed feedback from last year’s SOE Live and as a result, decided to move to a new location in Vegas: Planet Hollywood. We think this will improve the event in every respect:
- Better air quality – this was the number one complaint about our previous location.
- Better sound in the auditorium – you’ll be able to hear Smed more clearly than before!
- More flexible meeting space – more rooms with more room. Given how many people sat in on some of the sessions, we NEED more room!
- A more vibrant and interesting Bazaar – in a unique, open environment that overlooks the casino, while still being its own separate space.
In our planning, budgets are still a major consideration for all of us. We need to keep our costs down, and we want to make sure there is no huge jump in room rates for you – again, Planet Hollywood is a great fit on both fronts. We think you’ll really like it, and of course we gladly welcome your impressions after the event!
