Home Central Plaza Getting Winter And Holiday Treatment?
If you take a gander at the picture here, this PlayStation Home user is walkin' in a winter wonder-...
Yeah, you get it. According to PlayStation Asia, there's a new update out for Home that covers the Central Plaza in a very pretty coating of freshly fallen snow. They even put a huge Christmas tree right in the middle of the square, so the whole place has an authentic holiday atmosphere. Of course, the Plaza will return to its normal look after the holidays are over so this will only be available for a limited time. We're also not sure if this White Christmas update will be available for North America and Europe; we'd like to assume it's coming, but it seems a little late...doesn't it? On the other hand, the Asian PlayStation site was the first to break the news on the MGS4-themed downloadable content for LittleBigPlanet, and then it appeared on the official PlayStation blog a few days later. So perhaps they know what they're talking about, but we've seen nothing from SCEA or SCEE. This could be a simple unannounced update that just pops up as a late holiday gift to Home users, or it may not be available anywhere but in Asia. Who knows?
Well, keep checking in with Home throughout the day to see if the Central Plaza suddenly gets that wintry look. If Sony has anything to say about it, we'll be sure to let you know.
