A podcast focused on community

The PlayStation Show podcast is quickly becoming one of my favorite gaming podcasts. I listen to several other shows during the week but since they cover games in general I'm usually left wanting more PS3-specific content. I've checked out a couple other PlayStation podcasts and while I enjoyed them they lack the one thing I think differentiates The PlayStation Show podcast: building a strong community connection with their listeners. Regular features such as welcoming new community members by name and asking for member feedback on weekly discussion topics go a long, long way toward building a sense of community. I also think the Xmedia Minute is a great idea. It's fun to hear what the hosts have to say about the latest demos and downloads I too might have downloaded and played during the week. This again is another way they connect with their listeners. The hosts are passionate about all things PlayStation and while other consoles are mentioned from time to time the focus always comes back around to PS3, PSP, PSN, etc. Sometimes the humor on the show can be a bit too risqué for my more conservative tastes but I'm able to look past it in light of the overall content. As the show grows in popularity I imagine the hosts will better evaluate their content in an effort to maintain their edge while reaching the largest possible audience. Please note this is simply my opinion as an older, conservative listener. Others might not find the humor more explicit than any other gaming podcasts out there. While I don't know how the show is produced the audio quality is typical of the popular Skype-in format. As a result the levels can be uneven and the audio suffers from time to time. Even with these technical limitations the hosts do a great job of giving one another an opportunity to speak and you don’t hear them talking over one another or having to constantly give one another verbal queues to “go ahead” like you do with other shows. Once again it’s the content that matters most here and the audio quality can only be expected to improve with time. Sony-specific sound clips are put to good use and are not over used. There is a nice balance among the personality types on the show. I think this is an often overlooked aspect of what makes a show click. Rather than 4 or 5 guys acting like clones of the “outrageous gamer” the hosts know how to play off one another and maintain their identities. They’re never afraid to challenge one another or call one another on their ideas, opinions and statements but this always happens in a friendly, humorous way. This makes the show move along quickly and gives the discussions a natural, down to earth feel. The show follows a regular agenda without seeming rigid. The regular format is as follows: announcement of new community members, what’s new as it applies to the community, what’s new in games and demos, what the hosts are playing, Sony-related news and the community topic. The show closes with each host recommending a game for the listeners to play. The suggestions are often surprising and sometimes consist of older, obscure games that you might not have considered otherwise. The heart of the show is the community topic. Early in the week staff lets the community know what the topic will be and listeners chime in and respond on the show’s Ning-based community forums. The content of those replies is then reviewed and read by the hosts and becomes the heart of the discussion during the show. As I mentioned earlier this sort of thing builds a strong community around the podcast. It’s evident the show staff wants their listeners to feel like they’re part of what’s happening and it works. In addition the hosts put on a community gaming night once a week and post a video recording of the evening via their Ustream channel. It’s strikes me as odd that other shows aren’t doing this sort of thing. Kudos to The PlayStation Show staff for thinking ahead of the pack and doing something different! If you’re a PS3 fan I *highly* recommend you give the show a listen.

WooT!
