PlayStation Home Celebrates April Fool's Day 2009

100°
299w 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.

300w ago - Some of you might of heard of Trend Micro... it's a useful tool you can use from keeping underaged children from going to explicit Web sites in the PlayStation 3's Web browser.
