71w ago - Sony PlayStation Home Community Manager Locust_Star has announced today that beginning Wednesday eleven new games will be coming to PlayStation Home!
To quote: This Wednesday, January 11th will see yet another enormous update to PlayStation Home, with new games to play, a massive expansion to one of our most popular titles, and tons of collectible items.
For starters, our friends over at Digital Leisure are opening the doors to their all-new Casino game space.
Many of you have been asking for more casino-styled games since the launch of PlayStation Home Hold 'Em and we're proud to serve up an extremely elegant game space plucked straight from the Strip with all of the fun of a Vegas vacation without the high cost of admission.
From Blackjack and Poker and Casino War to Big Six Wheel and Keno and Slots, we've got you covered no matter what your game of choice is. Of course, no PlayStation Home game would be complete without some seriously awesome rewards, so Digital Leisure decided to add over 100 of them, including clothing, furniture, and even a luxury hotel room befitting the highest of high rollers (not that you'll be doing much sleeping once the Casino releases...)
74w ago - SCEE Manager James Gallagher has announced that PlayStation Home is being wrapped up for the year this coming Thursday, and shared details on the new Aurora v1.4 updates below as well.
To quote: On Thursday 22nd December from 8AM BST PlayStation Home will go offline for scheduled maintenance. Here is what to expect when PS Home reopens...
The darkness has been lifted from Aurora! Peace and beauty have finally been restored. Along with the return of daylight, Aurora is currently passing above a large mountain range.
Hopefully the islands will remain high enough to avoid any collisions!
There is now a new island holding a fantastic single and multiplayer game called 'Espionage 9′, along with another island containing the addictive 'Los Penguini Brothers' mini game.
We also have a new Teller of Tales story about the discovery of the islands which will be coming very shortly. Also, as well as new rewards for level 95 and a very special level 100 reward, we're giving everyone not one but two free items to celebrate the launch of Aurora 1.4.
One will be given on entering the space, and the other will arrive with the new Teller of Tales story. So what are you waiting for? Come and explore the wonders of Aurora now!
