PS Nation Community Member Spotlight – October 2014

community-member-spotlight-banner

PS Nation is nothing without you, our dear community. As we have said many, many times before – we have the single best community. It is because of YOU that we are able to continue with the podcast, the website and everything else that we do.

October is a special month for PS Nation as it’s traditionally when Extra Life happens. We’ve been incredibly successful over the past few years raising tens of thousands of dollars for hospitals in the Children’s Miracle Network and it’s all because of you. Our community is full of fantastic, interesting, great people – and now it is your time to be recognized.

Every month a new community member will be featured in the PS Nation Community Member Spotlight during which we will dive into some information about them as a gamer. This is not only a perfect opportunity to recognize some of the great members of our community but also to gain more interaction within the community as well.

And so, without further ado, here is our first PS Nation Community Member Spotlight.

    I think it was suppose to be “nothing without you”. Aside from that, this is why I absolutely love this community.
