183w ago - Online Community Specialist Locust_Star has announced today that the 2010 FIFA World Cup, BioShock 2, Kekkaishi and more are hitting Sony's PlayStation Home this week.
To quote: This week marks a truly monumental point in the history of PlayStation Home, as one of the world's biggest sporting events receives a dedicated space.
PlayStation Home's FevaArena - a virtual stadium devoted to the 2010 FIFA World Cup - will serve as the rallying point for soccer (err... futbol!) fans that want to play exclusive games, collect rewards and limited items, and indulge in their affinity for the most widely-viewed sporting event in the world.
Start at the FevaShoot mini-game, where you can hone your penalty kick skills and earn points that can be cashed in for special rewards. Then head over to the FevaSimulation Center, and track the simulated progress of your favorite teams throughout the World Cup (and cash in some of those points for exclusive furniture and clothing rewards).
Afterwards, you and your friends can hop into the Photo Booth or shop for exclusive virtual items (such as your favorite team's jersey) from the FEVA Arena's unique Mall area - all from the comfort of your console.
186w ago - SCEE Community Lead Alex Weekes has posted the European PlayStation Home update, which includes additions from LocoRoco, Bioshock and Dead Space among others.
To quote: This week sees the arrival of the all new, and very colourful, LittleBigPlanet PlayGround space in PlayStation Home.
In true LittleBigPlanet fashion, this space offers plenty to play, create and share. Start with making a fashion statement with the range of LittleBigPlanet virtual clothing available in the Space, then take part in the King's "Snap Happy" Photo Challenge.
Find the target, get the perfect shot, and you can win some great virtual rewards. It doesn't stop there: team up with your friends to create your own wallpapers for the PS3 XMB with the Creator mini-game!
And there's more to come! In a few weeks you will be able to release your competitive side and show off your sharp-shooting skills in the LittleBigDerby. Check out the trailer below:
Finally, no LittleBigPlanet experience would be complete without the iconic Pod... which is why you'll find the LittleBigPlanet Pod Penthouse in Estates this week!
Crafted from the finest cardboard, this personal space can be rotated to get the best out-of-this-world view!...

200w ago - Sony's Social Media Senior Specialist Chris Morell has posted up the first video of their FAQ on BioShock for the PS3 console.
To quote: We FINALLY got the invite up to 2K Games Marin to talk to the BioShock 2 team, and what better timing than a week away from the game's release on Feb. 9.
We certainly gathered by your abundance of Tweets that excitement for BioShock 2 is crazy high.
So on Monday, I sat down with Senior Producer Melissa Miller and Lead Environment Artist Hogarth de la Plante (with a chillingly lifelike Little Sister standing eerily behind us) who answered a heap of your questions - so many in fact that we had to split the video into two parts.
So today, you'll see part one that focuses primarily on BioShock 2's single-player campaign, including details on story development, philosophical influence, plasmids and much more. And head on back tomorrow for part two, which delves deep into the much-anticipated multiplayer mode.
