147w ago - PlayStation Home Online Community Specialist Locust_Star has announced today that virtual AlphabeTees are hitting PlayStation Home this Thursday alongside the best of the PlayStation Home Community.
To quote: Last week we offered you a preview of a brand new game known as AlphabeTees - a social trivia game exclusive to PlayStation Home.
The reaction from the community was, to say the least, incredibly positive. Your overwhelming enthusiasm is the reason why it brings us such pleasure to announce that AlphabeTees will be releasing this Thursday into the wide world of PlayStation Home.

• Find friends who own the AlphabeTees game pack.
• Solve the question by lining up with your friends and spelling out the answer using the AlphabeTees shirts.

178w ago - SCEA Marketing Specialist Brian Chou has announced today that Patchwork Heroes is hitting PSN for Sony's PSP console, as follows:
Here's a first look at Patchwork Heroes, a new title that will be flying onto your PSP this spring via the PlayStation Network.
Patchwork Heroes puts the fate of a city in your hands as massive warships threaten innocent citizens. Come to the people's defense by dismantling each level's warship quickly before the ships can strike. Rescue trapped comrades along the way by releasing them from their confines.
Act fast or each ship will quickly close in on its victims in a matter of minutes. You can defeat each ship by cutting through its parts and chopping it down to size so that it can no longer fly.
To make things tougher you'll have to stop the enemy's repair workers from fixing the damage you've made mid-flight, all the while dodging enemy fire on board.
Once you've cut down a warship to a certain size it will no longer able to fly and the city will be saved.
Stay tuned for more details about the Patchwork Heroes!
179w ago - Recently old XBox 360 XDK's have been hitting the China market, in case any 360 Devs were interested in grabbing one.
After Microsoft released the new XNA, all XBox developers are entitled to get a free upgrade from their old one.
Where do the old ones go? Microsoft will pass them along to labs to destroy them before being thrown away.
The labs, however, often just breaks all the ports and front panel and then sends them on to China to be melted down. Instead of just melting them down, people there actually rework them and are beginning to resell them now.
If you know people who live in China or via the Internet, it's a good chance to get an XDK considerably cheaper!
