    Burn Zombie Burn! Invades Playstation Home

    A graveyard now exists in Playstation Home in the new Burn Zombie Burn! Playstation Home Space. The new space has the cartoony art style of the game and has visitors wandering through the graveyard, crypts and a maze. There are goodies and extras in the two crypts if you’re brave enough to go in. I’m probably not. They aren’t saying what the third crypt has inside. Follow

    Club Fight Night opens in Playstation Home

    EA has created a club in Playstation Home for gamers to hang out in. Club Fight Night features content from Fight Night Round 4, like a main room, stage, and a full sized boxing ring. To complete the club atmosphere there is a VIP booth and DJ table. Club Fight Night has a new robot boxing game which will be available soon. The game is created for anyone to jump in and winners will get treated to exclusive virtual items. Club Fight Night let’s gamers take over the DJ turntables and try to entertain the crowd. I decided to load up Playstation Home and check it out. Right away, I’ve noticed a quicker loading and installing system which is nice. But as I step into Home, I am quickly surrounded by four dudes. *sigh* The club environment is pretty cool and seeing that it’s noon there aren’t that many people

    My First Impressions of HOME

    I was finally able to download the HOME Open Beta on Thursday. The download took several minutes but it automatically installed it as well. I had a few initial connection issues but I was able to get in and play around with it a little. First thing to do is to create your Avatar. They have some presets that you can build off of so I started with that and modified. The customization is somewhat in depth so you can create something close but not exactly like you.
