PlayStation Home update – Xi: Continuum is here
PlayStation Home will briefly be offline from 8.00am GMT on Wednesday 12th December for routine maintenance. Here’s what to expect after the update…
This week sees the release of Xi: Continuum. There have been strange things going on in PS Home recently, and it all comes to a head this week as you will need to come together to answer the question: what is the Continuum?
The game will take place over 47 days with new content each day in Home, on external websites or via community tasks. If you want to play it at your own pace you can do that as well. Xi: Continuum has been designed to appeal to everyone, whether you love teaming up with others or prefer to act alone.
If you missed out on Xi in 2009, here’s your chance to see what all the fuss is about.
