PLAYSTATION®2 SPONSORS 2nd ANNUAL THUNDERDORM FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE

PLAYSTATION®2 SPONSORS 2nd ANNUAL THUNDERDORMSM CAMPUS TECHNOLOGY TOUR

PlayStation 2 Online Gameplay Comes to College Campuses Nationwide

FOSTER CITY, Calif., September 12, 2002 – Sony Computer Entertainment America Inc. announced today that its PlayStation®2 brand is a sponsor of the 2nd annual ThunderDormSM Campus Technology Tour. Hosted by 360 Youth, the media and marketing arm of Alloy, Inc., and the Consumer Electronics Association, the nationwide tour will run for eight weeks focusing on demonstrating the latest in consumer technology for the college lifestyle, and will feature on-campus entertainment, sponsor tents and interactive product demonstrations.

As a presenting sponsor, PlayStation 2 will have eight gaming kiosks available within its sponsor tent. Players can experience the recently released Network Adaptor (Ethernet/modem) (for PlayStation®2), the foray into online console gaming, competing with other gamers throughout the country. The PlayStation 2 games on display include:

• SOCOM: U.S. Navy SEALs – places you in the role of an elite SEAL commander whose team is asked to fight terrorists in 12 distinct operations within four diverse, real world environments. As the team commander, players must instruct their team on a mission, either through voice recognition technology (with USB headset), or via on-screen text options. In multi-player mode, up to 16 players will be able to play and communicate online in a competitive environment using broadband access.

• NFL GameDayTM 2003 – For the first time ever in a football videogame you will be able to challenge fellow armchair quarterbacks across the country for gridiron superiority. Weekly roster and player attribute updates will keep you from having that potential Super Bowl MVP on the bench. Live user stats, leader boards, 4-on-4 gameplay and complete in-game chat functionality with selectable presets and full USB keyboard support deliver the ultimate online football gaming experience.

• Twisted Metal:Black™ ONLINE – The most insane car combat franchise takes it one step further by moving the action online creating a new world of infinite possibilities. The action heats up with a more dynamic environment that’s dependent on the interaction of multiple live players. With up to eight players utilizing a broadband connection, or two players using an analog connection, gamers will enjoy four gameplay modes within 20 levels from the Twisted Metal Black universe.
