I applied through a staffing agency and the process took 3 weeks - interviewed at Sony PlayStation in June 2014.
Interview Details – Applied online via a job board, recruiting agency got back to me within a day, asking for specifics of my gaming experience. After a brief back-and-forth, I got some pointers on improving my CV, which was then sent to the company.
It took them about a week to come back saying that they wanted to interview me. First I was interviewed by the hiring manager and by another manager from the communities. It was rather informal, was asked to tell about myself, expand on points in resume, then provide specific ideas.
After that I was asked to write a short test for the language (2 pages, multiple-choice and open-ended), and a short welcome message for the community. Note: it's a good idea at this point to ask if there are any specific rules/guidelines for such messages.
They got back to me soon (just after the weekend), asking me in for a second round with the same hiring manager and someone even more senior from the company. That went very well, was even more relaxed and informal than the first one. No really tricky questions. Asked for impressions on existing content, and then some questions such as "how would you go about doing x?"
I applied online and the process took 4 days - interviewed at Sony PlayStation.

I applied through a recruiter and the process took 6 months - interviewed at Sony PlayStation in June 2010.
Interview Details – The most outstanding thing about this interview process was the duration. Probably a total of 4-6 hours across about as many months. SCEE is not the most decisive company. Meeting the same people for essentially the same interview over and over made you wonder what they were looking for and whether they knew themselves.
Interview Question – The lack of specificity was the hardest. There was sort of the sense of "I don't know what I want, but I will know it when I see it". So pinning down their expectations to the candidate and so on, was very difficult. Answer Question
Negotiation Details – It was done entirely via an recruiting agent. They put an offer to me. I declined and asked for a slightly higher offer - which they granted quickly.
I applied through other source and the process took 2 weeks - interviewed at Sony PlayStation.

Interview Details – I applied online, and received a phonecall from HR recruitment who scheduled the interview. A went to the interview and was given a fairly straight forward C/C++ test. After that I was given an interview by 3 senior technical people. This again was fairly straight forward and was asked about my technical background and the work I've done. I was also given a problem solving exercise.
I was told that there is usually a second round, which is more of a HR type interview.
After the interview, I heard nothing. Even followed it up with no response, so I assumed I was unsuccessful
