It looks like Capcom have been hard at work giving the fans something cool in PlayStation Home. The Japanese developer are adding a slew of Street Fighter costumes into Sony’s social service as well as Resident Evil 5 costumes and an RE 5 themed game space. Little is known about these add-on’s as of yet, but i’m sure they’ll sell if they’re not overpriced (of course, the game space is free). I wonder if they’ll chuck in a zombie themed mini game? I hope so. More on this when we get the info.

The day has finally arrived, Sony are letting the great unwashed (sorry) get their grubby mitts on PlayStation Home, almost a year and eight months after it was announced at GDC 2007. Sony have announced that the ‘open beta’ for the service will be launching and available to everyone as of December 11th 2008 (that’s tomorrow, if you wern’t paying attention). Users will, apparently, not need to download a new firmware update and more content will be added, such as, the Far Cry 2 game room and clothing from Diesel. Hit the jump for more. Continue reading



Home Out By 17th? by Anthony Barlow

The official word from Sony has always been that Home would make it out before the end of 2008, and personally I hope it does. The rumor has been flying around the interwebs that Sony will launch their new service on the 17th of this month. Sweet.

Joystiq have contacted Sony who did not confirm or deny the rumor, but stuck to their guns and continue to profess that Home will make it out before the end of this year.

I think the 17th seems pretty reasonable, I can’t see why it wouldn’t make it out soon. Only 5 days to wait and see people, let’s hope the rumors are true.

PlayStation Home was down earlier today, Sony’s people on both sides of the pond decided it was time to let the closed beta users test out some nice microtransactions. Sony have decided to treat closed beta users with some free stuff. Including sofas and shirts, very nice indeed.

Sony have said that these will carry over into the open beta, which is nice. They have also assured those who’re not in the beta that these items will be cheap-ish when they’re finally released to the masses. Nice of them, I

certainly hope those of us in the closed beta get some more free stuff, that would definitely be cool Sony.

Sony’s first third party partner within Home has been revealed. It is being reported that energy drink Red Bull will have it’s own space within Home and will be dedicated to the annual Red Bull Air Race and apparently the space will contain

“an aeroplane racing game based on Red Bull’s real world Red Bull Air Race series.”

It sounds a little sketchy, but it’s free so that’s cool. Hit the jump to see what ,Red Bull UK’s brand marketing manager, John Beasley had to say. Continue reading

[By Anthony]

For those of you lucky to be in the beta for PlayStation Home, i’ve got some good news for you. Home version 1.0 is being released tomorrow (November 20th). This has come from Tawkin.com, who also say that there’s going to be two new batches of invitations sent out in the coming weeks. This information has apparently come from the official beta forums for the service, but as we cannot confirm the information it remains a rumor. The ammount of information released makes us think that this could be legit though. Rather than type up the massive ammount of info available I have chosen to upload the screen grabs from Tawkin. They’re in the gallery below.
