Ubidays Meets PlayStation Home Beta
Who says PlayStation Home isn't ready to go? Ubisoft decided to take advantage of this unique service, as they have teamed up with SCEA to offer the first ever third-party event to be held in a PlayStation Home Closed Beta: they're giving those in the closed beta (only in Europe) a chance to see a lot of what was unveiled during Ubidays 2008.
For the next five days, Home's media and events space will be reserved for Ubisoft and their upcoming titles like Far Cry 2, Tom Clancy's EndWar, Prince of Persia, Soul Calibur IV, Brothers in Arms: Hell's Highway, and more.
"We're excited about hosting Ubisoft's Ubidays as the first third party publisher in PlayStation Home. It gives us an opportunity to showcase how developers and publishers can begin to cultivate their passionate fan base beyond traditional static news announcements with fully integrated virtual interactive experiences," said Susan Panico, Senior Director of PlayStation Network. "And this is only the tip of the iceberg on ways publishers and developers will be able to interact with fans in PlayStation Home."
It's just another part of this diverse service that all PS3 owners will eventually get to experience. Ubisoft has some great titles on tap for the upcoming fiscal year, too, so that closed Home beta is gonna see a lot of awesome media.
