Is the GAP still active

10 replies 138 views Edited Jun 30, 2012

can't remember if they removed the Game Advisory Panel. Looked for the GAP message board and can't find it anywhere.  I still have my card though I am not sure if I should hold on to it or get rid of it.

I think that program has long gone way of the dodo bird.

A few years ago one of the members here went to a PS convention and asked a rep about the GAP, to which the rep had no clue what the GAP was even after seeing the card. Like coreno said, and I think the program has since been replaced with Plus.

 

I'm keeping mine, never got the t-shirt though Smiley Sad

I forgot what I even got from the GAP. I just know that it sort of disappeared when Lithium transitioned to a newer version of the forums (before the jive disaster).

In a nutshell.. a game of chance to get invited to a club to make gamers feel an undeserved sense of importance. Sort of like a board of directors where you pretend to give a **bleep** what they have to say, even though you're going to reserve your right to make the decision yourself.

There was certainly some of that, but in fairness, the GAP members helped each other learn a lot about how things worked and had some really insightful discussions about the system and gaming in general. I'm biased, as I was one (I'm old), and sometimes found it both refreshing compared to the general forums and also more useful than tech support when I was trying to resolve certain obscure issues.

The GAP was disbanded years ago, following the PSN and ability to mass-publish betas Smiley Sad The RLS is still going strong, though Smiley Happy
