It’s a big, big week this week! Yesterday we announced our new Home Square and Shopping Centre spaces, as well as launching the PlayStation E3 Booth space … and there’s plenty more for you to read about below! We’ll get started with E3:
Millions of gamers across the globe are glued to their monitors this week, rabidly devouring every last detail surrounding the announcements made during the video game industry’s biggest trade show: The Electronic Entertainment Expo. Simply put, E3 is the place to be if you are passionate about games. Everyone wants to be there, but only a select few are able to attend.
This week, we take a huge step forward in bringing gamers closer to their favourite PlayStation titles, closer to the people that create these games, and closer to one another by delivering the E3 experience directly to their PlayStation 3 consoles.
Right now, you can log into PlayStation Home and experience E3 for yourself in PlayStation Home’s virtual E3 booth. Watch Jack Tretton’s 2010 E3 press conference and get briefed on what to expect from the PlayStation platform in the coming months. Check out the latest games and collect exclusive PlayStation Home rewards (we’ve got new ones waiting for you every day of E3). Unlock the VIP area and get a sneak peek at what’s in store for PlayStation Home fanatics this year. Only in PlayStation Home can you participate in the E3 action without boarding a plane, securing a pass, or stepping foot in the Los Angeles Convention Centre.
Moving on from E3, tomorrow’s update will be chock full of exciting new content. So much that we’ve not got the time or space to list it all in detail. The content explosion starts with the anticipated “Playground” space, and urban playground set in an environment reminiscent of Brooklyn 30 years ago. The playground contains plenty to do with a multiplayer basketball game (H-O-R-S-E), chess, rooftop lounge, and a stage perfect for letting your hair down while enjoying the original hip-hop and funk music pumping out.
Drop by the GAME space this week to check out the newest Lunar mini-game: Lunar Duel. In this two-player game you’ll be tasked with lobbing ammunition of various types across the lunar landscape in an effort to eradicate your opponent!
There’s an absolute shopping bonanza in the new Shopping Centre this week. So much that we won’t detail everything. To give you a taster of what to expect, however, those browsing the stores this week might be interested by the following: Yakuza 3 clothing, Lockwood clothing, Karate Kid content, Darksiders clothing, Neptune furniture, V-Store update, Japanese-themed clothing and furniture, and more!
There’s so much new content for PlayStation Home this week that’s there’s bound to be something for everyone. Join us in the brand new Home Square and Shopping Centre tomorrow and help us celebrate this exciting occasion!
