The European PlayStation Blog has gone live – here’s the link – and it looks lovely. Bearing more than a striking similarity to the US Blog, the Euro version has a few nicer design stylings and obviously a more local twist on the news. “For the loyal PlayStation fans, the title of this post echoes what Patrick Seybold said when the US blog launched back in 2007. Yes, it’s taken us a while to get here and we know that many of you have been asking for a European blog for a long time now,” says the home page post.
“We’ve been listening and thank you all for your patience and support whilst we’ve been getting everything ready for today’s launch. Now that we’re here, it’s our hope that this blog will grow to become a one-stop-shop for your daily fix of PlayStation news from across the SCEE region. Like our US sister-site, we’ll be sharing with you all the latest PlayStation news, interviews, trailers, event coverage and much more with a European flair; everything will come firsthand from the people who work here at SCEE.”
Excellent news, and whilst everything will still naturally be under the same sort of corporate control as ThreeSpeech was, it’s really good to see that SCEE have finally got this thing up and running, and it’s all tied in with your PSN ID, so you won’t have to create a new account to post comments. French, Italian, German and Spanish versions of the blog will launch before August, we’re told, and there’s a twitter account to add to your follow list. Everyone head on over there and say from us, won’t you?
