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…

Xi: Continuum

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.

Looks awesome. Wondering what the surprise in Estates might be. Would love to revisit the first home square, but I guess it’s got to be an apartment space.

 

is home tycoon a proper city builder as my wife is a big fan of these and i would reinstall home if it was.

1 can out Pets go thu xi space doing Xi games will there be danger the last Xi maze took out our avatars.

2. you said on our own pace how will it be about you said 49 days & update every day some ppl may not like going on everyday.

anyhows it a dam fine update kudos SCEE Home team & Ndreams.

I remember playing Xi but rarely use Home anymore, Xi: Continuum is a reason for me to load it up again.

I cannot believe that Xi 2 is not free.

 

I say turn it in to “The Sims” online. Intergrate the whole Tycoon part with the main “game” somehow. Live in someone elses city, purchase a house using in-game cash.. and all that lot. It’s boring otherwise.
