What is the play schedule for PS3 games?
The PS3 play schedule is posted here and all are welcome to attend:
What if I canít commit to that date or the entire time?
The idea and spirit of Extra Life is that everyone pulls together at the same time, but we know thatís not going to be possible for everyone. Donít let a commitment on the 15th stop you from joining. Just do what you can and make up the game time later. What matters most is the time you put in BEFORE the event to raise money for these kids.
What countries can participate and raise money?
Extra Life is open to EVERY country on planet Earth. Martians are accepted on a case-by-case basis. The money you raise is directed to the Childrenís Miracle Network Hospital you select during registration.
What games can I play?
All games. From PS3 to poker on your phone, everything counts - even Facebook games!
What if I canít participate for a whole 24 hours on Saturday?
If you wonít be able to finish the whole thing, you can make up the remaining hours later. Itís all on the honor system and what really matters is that weíre all raising money for a great cause. Your sponsors should know they are supporting the cause whether you crash on hour 18 or not.
Who do I ask for donations?
Ask your family, friends, neighbors, co-workers, anyone in your local community and of course the gaming community! Ask everyone! We are inspired to make miracles happen for kids. We can't reach our goal without the support of our communities.
When will the PMS|H2O Live Stream begin?
The PMS|H2O Live Event will start on October 15th @ 8am Est and end at 11am Est on October 16th. A schedule for the events will be posted SOON!!
Any tips I can use if I plan on playing for an extended period or the entire 24 hours?
- Drink water. I know, itís fun to drink all those RedBulls and Rockstars. But you REALLY need to drink your water! All that caffeine is nice to have, but it can give you headaches and make you feel like you have been no scoped to the dome.
- Eat healthy. Donít sit there and eat candy and chips. You still need to eat your regular meals. Plan ahead and buy healthy snacks. Nuts and dried fruit are great energy boosters!!!!!!!!!
- Take breaks. Donít sit there the entire time. Get up and walk around the house every 1 to 1 Ĺ hours. Walk to the mail box. DO SOMETHING OTHER THAN SIT THERE!!!!!!!
- Sleep beforehand.. Donít stay up late the night before. If you are playing for 24 hours (or as long as you can), sleep for at least 7 to 8 hours the night before.
- Do not sit too close to your TV!!!!!!!! It will strain your eyes more than normal.
- Put your controller down between games. Do not sit there and grasp your controller the entire time. Give your fingers and thumbs a break!
