184w ago - Online Community Specialist Locust_Star has announced today that the 2010 FIFA World Cup, BioShock 2, Kekkaishi and more are hitting Sony's PlayStation Home this week.
To quote: This week marks a truly monumental point in the history of PlayStation Home, as one of the world's biggest sporting events receives a dedicated space.
PlayStation Home's FevaArena - a virtual stadium devoted to the 2010 FIFA World Cup - will serve as the rallying point for soccer (err... futbol!) fans that want to play exclusive games, collect rewards and limited items, and indulge in their affinity for the most widely-viewed sporting event in the world.
Start at the FevaShoot mini-game, where you can hone your penalty kick skills and earn points that can be cashed in for special rewards. Then head over to the FevaSimulation Center, and track the simulated progress of your favorite teams throughout the World Cup (and cash in some of those points for exclusive furniture and clothing rewards).
Afterwards, you and your friends can hop into the Photo Booth or shop for exclusive virtual items (such as your favorite team's jersey) from the FEVA Arena's unique Mall area - all from the comfort of your console.

Here at VidZone Towers we are as excited as the rest of the world about the upcoming World Cup... it excites us even more because it gives us the chance to feature all the amazing footy songs from over the years!
So... What we were thinking... was... that maybe you could send us the names of your favourite football anthems... Just to make sure we have all of them. That ok? Coooool.
My personal favourite football song lyric of all time, John Barnes... Anfield Rap... "I come from Jamaica, my name is John Barnes When I do my thing the crowd go bananas"... Genius.
We also have a very cool Dan Le Sac Celebrity Playlist - featuring videos from Fever Ray, Dead Prez and Bomb The Bass and a intro video from the guys which they filmed just for us... Which is nice.
Hot New Videos
Newer than a very new thing, hotter than the sun, and more videoey (no... it's not a word... but I like it) than a pile of DVD's. Featuring the brand new video from Ke$ha 'Your Love Is My Drug', Beyonce 'Why Don't You Love Me', Usher 'Lil Freak'and...
