PSX Extreme - 18 Years of Gaming
Before I begin this article, I’d like to give a huge thanks to all of our previous editors that worked tirelessly over the past 18 years. I’d like to also give an extra big thanks to Ben Dutka, our former Editor-in-Chief. You were the heart and soul of this community, and everybody here at PSX Extreme wishes you the absolute best with all of your future endeavors. It won’t be the same without you, and we will miss you dearly. Good luck Ben. :D
Well, I guess this is where I put my introduction. So yeah, hey guys. My name is Tyler Harvey, though some of you may know me as Wiiplay. I’m the newly appointed owner of PSX Extreme, and will be in charge of this site from here on out.
I go by the name of Sidular elsewhere, and am known primarily within the professional Team Fortress 2 eSport scene, both as a competitor, and as a league owner. I created the third largest pro TF2 league in North America, which sounds impressive, until you realize that there are only three leagues in North America… But whatever, I’m proud of it all the same.
Sidular is also the name of a company I own and run. But anyway, enough about me. Time to talk about PSX Extreme!
We’re Back, Baby!
So in short, PSX Extreme is back. I ended up acquiring this website in the hopes of restoring it to its former glory. I won’t lie, it’s going to be an uphill battle. But you know what? I believe we can do it, guys! You with me? :D
Let’s face it. This site is a tad outdated. The last major design update we had was in 2007. So, moving forward, we’re going to be creating a brand new responsive design, which means you will soon be able to comment from your mobile device! This new design has no ETA right now, though expect some updates on our forums.
Speaking of Forums…
Now that PSX Extreme is a part of the Sidular Network, we’re going to be moving the PSX Extreme Forums to a different platform. Something a little more open source, and easily expandable. Don’t get me wrong, what we’ve got now is awesome! But it’s also old, and a total pain to manage.
We plan to initiate the move within the next couple of days, so stay tuned for that. (all accounts and posts will be transferred to the new platform)
Remember when I mentioned that I run a company? Well, Sidular’s the company, and the Sidular Network is a large network of digital sites and services. It’s really more of a branding thing, and won’t affect PSX Extreme in any significant way.
Now that I own this joint, I intend to expand the crap out of it. I’ve been running a website called Gaming Rant for 7 years, and hope to be able to turn Gaming Rant into an all-purpose website for gaming media, with an indie focus. So if you like and enjoy indie gaming, and if you want to support PSXE and all of those awesome indie developers out there, do consider checking out Gaming Rant when you get the chance.
No Emails? D:
Our email servers are currently down for both the main site and the forums. We’re working on a fix for this, and should have a solution within the next couple of days. Until then, it won’t be possible to create a new account on our forums, and you also will not be able to request a password reset, or potentially even join our main site, at least until this issue has been resolved.
Custom PS4 Giveaways
Remember when we gave away those awesome PS3 consoles way back in the day? Well, we plan to do it again! Expect more news on future PSXE giveaways soon.
The future of PSX Extreme looks bright, and full of hope. We’re going to be swimming through some uncharted waters for a bit, but I’m sure that with the right amount of support and dedication, we can go beyond and into greatness. Again.
Anyway, that’s about it for now. Expect more updates soon. Also, if you’re interested in writing for us, please be sure to send us a message on Facebook.
