PlayStation MVPs

Almost twenty years ago, Sony launched a console. From there a brand was born that would provide entertainment and fun for all ages. Each generation, the brand delivered new experiences and wonderful IPs that gamers would remember and love. As the brand grew so did the fan base. To serve those fans, Sony built a destination where like-minded PlayStation Gamers could interact, and thus the PlayStation forums were created.

 

The PlayStation community does not JUST involve those dedicated to the official forums, though. It includes people active in outlets such as Twitter, Facebook, YouTube, and any social avenue where PlayStation fans are interacting with one another, and sharing their passion for everything PlayStation

 

The MVP program was born from this collective dedication to gaming and has evolved greatly since its initial inception. The MVPs all contribute to the community in some form or fashion whether that be game nights, info threads, streaming gameplay, providing  ideas to improve the PlayStation experience, or simply taking surveys to help shape the brand into what it is today.

 

Their opinions and ideas are all unique, and like any human being they interact with other community members in their own way. Some people can be brash, others subtle, snarky, arrogant, friendly, or even sarcastic. But no matter how they express themselves, their point of view is valuable to any discussion. PlayStation MVPs are no different.

 

As gamers, we don't have to agree or disagree with each other, or even communicate in the same way. That's part of what makes each of us special in our own right, whether an MVP or not.

 

With that in mind, it’s important to remember that MVP's are volunteers. They have their own lives to live out.  They have careers, families, and loved ones that they will always put first. They engage with the community voluntarily whenever they are able because they love PlayStation. They love the brand as much as anyone else, and enjoy interacting with the community while trying to lend out a helping hand any chance they can. They are here for all of you, and if you’d like to help them, you can always apply to the program. If not, then you can rest assured that someone is spending their free time to represent you, the gamer, for PlayStation.

I applied a couple of weeks ago for the ps mvp program and I am wondering how long it takes to get some sort of response?

As a MVP, How much time do you must to be online on the forums per day?

We take a look at applications in waves.  The next time we'll be looking is later this month.

We look at a lot more than just PlayStation forum activity.  We consider activity in other gaming communities, or in places like Twtich, or even if you have your own gaming related blog.  So it's hard to really answer that question directly.  But we are looking for folks that are engaged with the brand, and can represent other gamers when interacting with us here at PlayStation.
