AN INTERVIEW WITH PLAYSTATIONCLAN.BE

By Diana "DumeeGamer" Dumee and Bram Vonck on May 30, 2016

During my visit at the 2K studio I met four people of the PlayStationclan.be. My head was immediately filled with questions, so I asked them if they would like to do an interview. And, like the nice people they are, they said yes!

What is the PlayStation Clan?

Playstationclan is a group of people that want to play online games with other Dutch-speaking people. Most of the people who join us are approximately 30 years old. Just men and women with spouses/children/jobs who just want to relax and play online games in the evening or at any time that is convenient. We have a simple online Ďeventí calender on the main page of our website, on which every member can put an Ďeventí. Basically, this means he or she chooses the game, the date and the hour he or she wants to play. Other members can sign in on the event, and when the time arrives, they can play together. We also post news and try to do as many reviews as possible. Recently we also have added two streaming channels on Twitch and YouTube to our media outlets, so other members can watch the games that are being played. If they donít know whether they like the game or not, they can watch the stream or read a review, thus getting a good view on what that particular game is all about.

Do you only play PS exclusive titles or everything that will be released for PlayStation?

We/our members play everything thatís released on a Playstation console (PS VITA / PS3 / PS4).

Who came up with the idea to set up a PlayStation Clan?

We (Nico and I) came from another clan. Unfortunately, they didnít operate as a team, so we concluded we could do better and started something for ourselves. So we didnít come up with the idea, but we used it, implemented it, and expanded it as best we could.


Are you getting paid to play PlayStation games?

Alas, no. But who knows, maybe in the future ;)

You have .be at the end of PlayStation Clan which, of course, stands for Belgium. Are there any other PlayStation clans active in other countries?

Yes, we know there are some other Belgian and Dutch clans active.

Can anyone join the PlayStation Clan?

Yes, itís very simple actually. If you can communicate in Dutch, you can join. When we had just started, we implemented an age limit, which meant that you had to be 18+. Nowadays, if people are mature enough, even though they arenít 18 years old yet, they can join.


Do you guys only play PlayStation games? Or do any of you also own other systems?

There are team members who have more consoles or play on PC. The 2 main admins (Nico and myself) only play Playstation games.

Are you sponsored by Sony or do they at least know you?

No, we arenít sponsored by Sony. They do know we exist, but thatís all thereís to it.

Which games are you absolute favorites?

I liked the Borderlands games very much. Also, the first Castlevania for the PS3 is a game to never forget. I spent a lot of time in Tamriel (Skyrim), and letís not forget the God of War-series.


Which games are you looking forward to?

Dead Island remake (online fun), Technomancer, Deus Ex

Now for the question that should get your brains working; what was the first game you ever played?

The original Mario Bros.

And now, for the very last question; What are your thoughts on Garden Gnomes?

Shoot them on sight.
