50°
227w ago - Today SCEA PR Manager Eric Levine has shared a MLB 10 The Show PS3 video celebrating the opening of Target Field.

To quote: It's always exciting to see new stadiums pop up. The amenities, the technology, and just the overall ambiance of new parks always adds to the experience of seeing a game live and in-person.

Today, our cover athlete, [Register or Login to view links], will be taking the field for his home opener at a brand new address that includes real grass, fresh air, and clear skies (hopefully).

The Twins will play host to the Red Sox as they say good-bye to the Metrodome, their home since 1982, and say hello to the state-of-the-art sports cathedral that is [Register or Login to view links].

So, to celebrate this historic day for Joe and Minnesota fans everywhere, we thought we'd give you a behind the scenes look into how we created the Twins new home in MLB 10 The Show.

Our development team strives for ultimate realism in all areas of the game, and that's no different in this case. I hope you enjoy the glimpse into the making of Target Field. Welcome to The Show!

PlayStation Home Celebrates April Fool's Day 2009

100°
281w ago - If you log into PlayStation Home and enter the Central Plaza, you'll be greeted with the cult hit that everyone loves to hate along with the promise of some "interesting" costumes.

Home Community Managers Locust_Star and CydoniaX had commented last week about bringing "The Chain Swing" back to PlayStation Home for April Fool's day.

Well, they delivered, making every single song in the Listen@Home play list "The Chain Swing".

Along with that comes posters advertising hamster costumes for Home users. So far, we've yet to see anything in the Threadz store as this may only be for April Fool's day and may have no chance of seeing the light of day.





In the meantime, we'll keep our eyes peeled if these suits become available and provide you with some pics of the event as well as the song that is currently driving Home users absolutely crazy.
