To quote: To start, we are celebrating the arrival of spring in the only way we know how - by throwing a huge event smattered with the irreverent humor you've come to know and love.
This Friday, April 2, all of you action movie fans will want to log into PlayStation Home to partake in our Easter City Huntdown event.
Pictures are worth a thousand words, and movies are worth a million pictures, so I'll let the clip below speak for itself. Needless to say, you won't want to miss out on this one.
The PlayStation Home Mall will also be seeing quite an update this week, with a host of Anime-themed virtual items (to complement the Anime personal space we released last week) and MAG costumes being released.
And if you head to the updated UNCHARTED 2 space or the Irem Carnival you can pick up new costumes (a Sark costume and a host of Western-themed items, respectively). Check the pics below for a sample of what is coming into PlayStation Home tomorrow, April 1.

201w ago - SCEE's Social Media Manager Jem Alexander has posted a video today on the European PlayStation Blog covering the round up of their recent MAG256 PS3 review event.
To quote: As you may have witnessed our MAG256 review event last week was a resounding success.
If you were among the one hundred and twenty eight players who fought so valiantly against each other – and the developers in the US – then I wanted to personally thank you all very much for coming. We hope you had a great time and look forward to hearing all your thoughts of the experience in the comments below.
For those of you who weren't able to make it, however, we've put together a little video and some photos to give you a feel of what it was like to attend. Extra points are awarded for those who manage to spot themselves in the video.
As you can see, the main attraction of the event was the 256 structure, which housed the 128 PS3s equipped with retail copies of MAG. Even when empty this was a pretty impressive set up, but it really gained a sense of gravitas when fully manned. Especially with the Voice Of MAG (who wasn't lacking a sense of gravitas himself!) making some very loud announcements over the tannoy.
