Massive Home Update: Midway 2, Holiday Goodness
If you haven't visited PlayStation Home in the last few months, you'll be quite surprised at the bevy of new stuff. If you haven't visited this year, you have no idea what you're missing. If you only logged in once during the early days back in late 2008 or early 2009...logging in will blow your freaking mind.
Home gets an absolutely massive update this week; you can check out all the details over at the PlayStation Blog: first and foremost, they're unveiling the Midway 2 game space. Annexed to the Midway complex, Midway 2 gives the Home explorers no less than 10 new games and 100 new prizes. Grab that Golden Ticket and try new games like Kitty Cannon (oh dear God), Half Cocked and Tee'd Off, and see if you can unlock all the prizes. They've also updated the Mall's LOOT store, which now features the Ameratsu Yacht space, and you can always take advantage of LOOT's Entertainment on Demand (EOD) system so you can sit and watch cool content with buddies. What, you think that's it? We haven't mentioned the Winter Wonderland event space; "a snowy location filled with games and rewards galore."
They go on to talk about the new space for Tron: Evolution, an "epic event" slated for December 10 (check it out!), more items in the Mall, and the Community Theater's debut of the new HomeCast Rewind series. In the premier episode, host HearItNow tells you how to get the most out of the 1.4 client update, and don't forget that more stuff is going on around the theater section. It's just endless. And finally, we may be speaking to Home boss Jack Buser again tomorrow; sort of a spur of the moment thing, so we can't really take reader questions. But maybe we can make him read the comments in this article. ;)
