Home Update: Move Debuts, More Star Wars Costumes
At this rate, you really can't miss visiting PlayStation Home for more than a week, or you'll miss out on a ton of new stuff.
The latest update is a big one, as detailed at the PlayStation Blog: as of August 12, the gates to the Presentation Podium will open once again to celebrate the impending launch of PlayStation Move. It's an exclusive community event and first thing in the morning, visitors will automatically receive a unique Move controller outfit that will be your key to access the full event. You and three buddies can then participate in the team challenge, in which you can earn new versions of the outfit, all in the aim of going for the ultimate prize- "a PlayStation Move outfit complete with the iconic fully animated multi-colored orb." So if you want to become a bigger part of the Home world, and you're all sorts of interested in Move, now's the time to jump into the friendly virtual environment.
But it hardly ends there. They continue to celebrate the second week of the "Empire Strikes Back" 30th anniversary with a few more "Star Wars" costumes (Han Solo, Luke Skywalker, and Boba Fett included), and they'll even have a Home booth up at the Star Wars Celebration V this weekend in Orlando, Florida. If you plan to attend, feel free to stop by the booth and say hello to GlassWalls. Then there's a homage to the new PSN game, Top Gun: if you purchase before August 24, you'll get a free limited-edition flight suit for your Home avatar. Oh, and game/movie screenwriter Jack Epps Jr. will be in the Central Plaza to hang out and chat on Monday, August 15, at 5:00 p.m. PDT (8:00 p.m EST) You just gotta wear your Top Gun avatar t-shirt to participate.
Home is jumpin'. Come on in and say hello to your PlayStation friends.
