Huge Content Update For Home
It's one of the biggest PlayStation Home updates yet, and it will definitely appeal to all you survival/horror fans out there.
As the first part of this huge Home enhancement, the PlayStation blog reports that a new space based on the freaky downloadable title, Siren: Blood Curse, is now available to peruse. There are three basic zones; there's an old rundown carnival section just outside the Ward of Despair, and the latter features video screens, places to sit, and a receptionist that will let you play a mini-game. This is the Saiga Hospital stage from Blood Curse and everyone "is tasked with objectives that must be completed within the 5-minute time limit." If you get nabbed by a Shibito, or zombie, it's all over, but if you can finish successfully, you'll unlock some new Home goodies! In addition, you may want to stop by on Tuesday, May 12, between 4 p.m. and 7 p.m. PST; they'll be hosting a "Siren: HorrorBowl" bowling tournament. If you show up to play wearing one of the special reward items from that mini-game, you will automatically qualify for a random giveaway of the first Siren: Blood Curse bundle, which includes the first four episodes.
Not enough? You want more? Okay, well, in celebration of this new space, the game in question will be on sale. The full game will now only cost you $29.99 and each of the 3-episode packs will go for only $10.99 (if you're not sure of the purchase, try the demo). For more new Home content, drop in to see the "Behind-the-Scenes" Developer Diary with the makers of Fat Princess; it'll be up for viewing for one week in the Theater. Let's see, what else...oh, the Living Room Stage Set will go on sale at the Mall; it boasts lights, cameras, backdrops and other movie-related equipment, and it'll only cost $4.99. There's another apartment to consider, too: the "Log Cabin"-themed area. Last but not least, a bunch of new virtual items, including Tekken costumes and figurines and 14 Killzone 2 shirts, plus the announcement that stuff is indeed on the way for inFamous. ...phew!
Okay, so...what are you waiting for? Home is expanding rapidly!
