Bakersfield, CA isn’t particularly known for anything spectacular (unless you’re a fan of country music… I guess), so when the first Bak-Anime convention popped up here a couple years ago I wasn’t surprised that it was fairly lackluster. Well all cons start somewhere, and it was a quite a shock to see almost 1400 people packed into the halls of a Marriott for this small one-day convention. I didn’t even know that many anime/comic/video game fans existed in or around Bakersfield (shows you how much I get out).
Though I suppose the announcement of special guest Roger Craig Smith helped to boost the attendance. I didn’t believe it at first, but once I saw Roger himself confirm the announcement I had all of my Assassin’s Creed games, posters and figures laid out as I decided what I wanted him to sign.
Did I mention I’m a huge fan of Ezio? Well, I’m a huge fan of Ezio.

View PS3Blog.net Global Winners in a larger map
I can’t think of any sites off hand that do global giveaways. So when I took over PS3Blog.net in May 2009, one of my main priorities was hosting global giveaways. We always strive to do global giveaways a majority of the time because we have readers who view the site from across the globe. Plus, it’s fun to provide prizes to those in other countries. Does it cost more to ship? Yes. Is it worth it. Absolutely! I have created a dedicated page on this site with a embedded Google Map of the winners cities.
Earn 125 Points
This map does not contain a full list of all the physical/digital winners. So we need your help to get it as up to date as possible. If you have ever won something from PS3Blog.net and don’t see your city on the map. Please leave a comment below with your city, state or province & country. If you can remember what you won, let us know as well. I won’t include any names/usernames on this map unless you really want it to show. As a thank you, I’ll give you 125 points.
Just a quick note. Unless it specifies in the giveaway post that it’s restricted to a certain region, it would be a global giveaway. Thank you for all the support over the years. Looking forward to many more giveaways!
