164w ago - PlayStation Home Online Community Specialist Locust_Star has announced news of a Playstation Home Halloween Event, as well as Saw, Bleach, and Heavy Strike updates that are all incoming this week.
To quote: On Thursday, October 21st, Lord Pumpkinhead (aka "the Demon Gourd from Hell") will appear In the middle of PlayStation Home's Central Plaza, his gigantic glowing face sneering like an intolerant king at his unworthy subjects, rotating so that all can bear witness to his glorious image.
As an offering to your pumpkin overlord, you and your friends must toss coins into his mouth as it rotates past. Make a proper offering, and the exalted one will reward you as one of his followers. Fail in your tithing efforts, and you will anger the ever-powerful Lord Pumpkinhead, hindering your chances of entering the Demon Gourd's fold.
Legend has it that Lord Pumpkinhead has additional rewards for his most loyal subjects. Can you ascend to the ranks of his chosen few?
Speaking of Halloween festivities, this week our friends over at Heavy Water release their first pieces in the "Heavy Pets" line of items for your personal space. Celebrate Halloween properly by visiting the Furniture store (or the Central Plaza kiosk) in the PlayStation...

Tis the month to be trick or treated, and Lockwood's getting a head start this week releasing a range of new Halloween items. Those looking for their Halloween costume should drop into the Lockwood store and check out the two variations of skeleton suit.

215w ago - Today AtlusAram has unveiled that new dangers and rewards will be lurking in the shadows for those who play Demon's Souls for PS3 online this Halloween. Boo!
Press Release: IRVINE, CALIFORNIA - OCTOBER 29, 2009 - Atlus U.S.A., Inc. today passed along an ominous warning to online players of the sleeper hit Demon's Souls for PlayStation 3 computer entertainment system.
"Early reports from the Kingdom of Boletaria indicate that the Old One's power grows," announced Aram Jabbari, Manager of PR and Sales for Atlus, shuffling awkwardly under the weight of his full set of fluted armor.
"We've discovered that the nefarious Demon will seek to descend the land in pure blackness on All Hallow's Eve. His minions will be more powerful, but the rewards for those who seek to challenge them will be greater as well. We don't know how long this dark tendency will last, but we do advise those prone to controller-into-LCD syndrome to proceed carefully."
Jabbari then cackled as he quickly put a Thief's ring on his finger and disappeared.
Demon's Souls is out now for PlayStation 3 system and retails with an MSRP of $59.99.
