Home Updated: Godfather II Space, New Threadz, Xi Challenge
If you haven't logged into PlayStation Home lately, you might be surprised at the additions that have been made since your last visit. The latest batch of content, detailed and pictured by TAWKN, may cause you to explore the updated Home spaces.
First, you will find that the Resident Evil 5 space has been upgraded a bit and now features a new beetle mini game (give it a try!). Then, to celebrate the recent launch of The Godfather II, we get a whole new space that includes two separate floors complete with poker tables, where up to 8 players can sit down and have a game. Not surprisingly, the entire space screams, "I have lots and lots of ill-gotten gains!" so it's definitely worth a look; it's pretty damn sleek. Moving on, if you're bored of the clothes selection, you'll be happy to know that the Threadz store in the Mall just got a new shipment, and for all you fighting fans, Street Fighter IV figures have popped up in the furniture store. Lastly, there's a Xi update - who has been following along? - as Stapler sets forth a new challenge: beat Hexapolis, Maximum Tilt, and the text-based game, "Caverns of The Bandit King" on Expert difficulty. This Xi thing is almost like being part of a secret society, except that it's so secret, not even the members understand the organization's true purpose.
At any rate, there are plenty of new reasons to visit Home so if you've got the time, we suggest logging in and wandering about. This is one application that's definitely going to grow and expand with time; we wonder what it might look like in a few years time...
