Xi Update: Secret Manhole Now Open
If you don't know what "Xi" is just yet, you're already well behind in the game. If, however, you've been following along, don't forget to log into PlayStation Home today.
For those of you who don't know, Xi is a mystery you must unravel within Sony's innovative online social service, and you have to be both vigilant and observant. Nobody is really sure of the ultimate purpose just yet, but in exploring the Home environment, you'll stumble across new clues that will eventually lead you to your unknown destination. Most people just say something along the lines of, "...okay, what the hell is going on around here?!" Nobody knows; that's the point. And now, it's time to take the next step in the mystery: you may have seen that secret manhole cover before, and you probably wondered if you'd ever be able to open it. Well, worry no longer, 'cuz it's open right now. You can check the visual evidence over at VG247, and when you head down to the Maintenance area, you'll have a few more questions. For example, who is William Johnson? Of course, this won't really get you any closer to an answer for the overall "what does it all mean?" question, but at least we're progressing.
Anyway, if you still want to get involved and need to catch up, you can head on over to the official PlayStation forums, which features an ongoing Xi topic. If you just wanna find out what's down there, you're welcome to travel down the rabbit hole...
