224w ago - Today PlayStation Home Online Community Specialist Locust_Star has announced that this Thursday over 100 new pieces of content will be hitting PlayStation Home.
To quote: Attn: Killzone 2 fans. We've seen you in Central Plaza all decked out in your Helghan wares. We've seen you in the Bowling Alley showing your love for the ISA. We've heard you proudly boasting your Warzone rank in the Gamer's Lounge.
So we know that this Thursday, August 27th, you'll be rushing into PlayStation Home to grab the new KZ2 content we'll have waiting for you - specifically, the Killzone 2 Visari Throne Room.
This special personal space is based on the final stage of Killzone 2 in Scolar Visari's Palace and is the absolute ideal gathering space for you and your KZ2-obsessed friends.
Releasing in tandem with the Visari Throne Room will be a variety of virtual items that you can use to customize your area (including the Helghan Defense Painting - my personal fave). Check out the video below for a sneak peek of this space and other Killzone 2 items available in PlayStation Home.
We know that you guys and gals love collecting personal spaces, furniture, and gear for your avatar, which is why we've been working night...
