And thanks go to the 100 PlayStation fans who joined us to celebrate these wins in Hollywood on Saturday evening. It was a truly fun time, and [Register or Login to view links] when UNCHARTED 2 claimed Game of the Year/Best PS3 Game/Best Graphics was made all the sweeter by the fact that several Naughty Dogs were there to watch along with us.

Along the way we raffled off multiple copies of our biggest games of the year (Killzone 2, inFAMOUS, Ratchet & Clank Future: A Crack in Time, UNCHARTED 2 and more), a couple of super-rare James Grayson-inspired [Register or Login to view links]

50°
260w ago - Today PlayStation Home Online Community Specialist Locust_Star has announced news of a new Red Bull space and event, Fight Night Producer chat and more heading to PlayStation Home this week.

To quote: Mark your calendars - this Thursday, November 26th, the next phase of the wildly popular [Register or Login to view links] Island will be released in PlayStation Home. To complement the existing [Register or Login to view links] mini-game, Red Bull will unleash two brand new spaces that will appeal to sports fans and beach bunnies alike.

The first, an exhibition of action and adventure sports photographs from [Register or Login to view links]. The winning photograph from each of the competition's ten categories is displayed on large illuminate cubes, imitating the real-life exhibit.

The second is a [Register or Login to view links] mini-game where users can compete against one another by launching one of five wild flying machines off of a 30-foot high deck in hopes of achieving flight. Think: The Wright Brothers... or that time you and your genius buddies decided to pile into your wagon and take a ride off the roof.

He who flies the farthest wins the high spot on...
 

Video: Special Thanksgiving Event in PlayStation Home and More

50°
261w ago - PlayStation Home Online Community Specialist Locust_Star has shared news today of a special Thanksgiving Event in PlayStation Home and an Uncharted 2: Among Thieves Fortune Hunter Edition contest.

To quote: This Thanksgiving, you'll want to spend every spare moment in the ever-evolving world of PlayStation Home.

Starting this week, a new mini-game will appear in Central Plaza, occupying the space generally reserved for Saucer Pop. This Thanksgiving-themed game will only be live for a limited time and will prove to be one of the most addictive, action-packed, and ridiculously fun activities going on in PlayStation Home.

The premise is simple: in celebration of the impending Turkey Day, users will approach the giant stone turkey in Central Plaza and, of course, pledge their allegiance to the almighty Meleagris Gallopavo by stating "Gobble gobble" and/or other assorted turkey-isms.

If your homage pleases your turkey overlord, you will be given a chance to chase a bunch of wily turkeys around Central Plaza (word to the wise: these turkeys are quite cunning and as such get progressively more difficult to catch as the game goes on, so you'd better bring appropriate footwear).

If you can manage to catch them all, you will unlock some truly hilarious rewards...

262w ago - Today PlayStation Home Online Community Specialist Locust_Star has announced news of a Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 2 launch event in PlayStation Home.

To quote: If you are like us, you've marked your calendars and informed all and sundry that, come November 10, you will be shirking your day-to-day responsibilities in favor of tossing flashbangs and dropping brass on any and all opponents in Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 2.

Forget work, school, and jury duty - this Tuesday it's all about who can get the most Killstreaks as we embark on a shoot-or-be-shot journey through the war torn landscapes of one of the most highly-anticipated titles of the year.

For those of you who are saving the single-player campaign for a later time and instead opting to spend D-Day knee-deep in some of the most ridiculously addictive multiplayer modes you'll find in any FPS around, there's no better place to find a battle than in PlayStation Home.

Why? First and foremost, PlayStation Home allows you to easily find other CoD:MW2 fans and seamlessly launch into the various multiplayer match types including Free-For-All, Search & Destroy, Domination, Team Deathmatch and the new Demolition and Capture The Flag modes.

But to top it off we're also offering participants in our...
 

Video: Uncharted 2: Among Thieves PS3 Cinema Event Prizes

50°
267w ago - Sony Social Media Senior Specialist Chris Morell has shared a video today unveiling some of the prizes from the Uncharted 2: Among Thieves San Francisco Cinema Event.

To quote: Last night, four Uncharted 2: Among Thieves cinema events simultaneously took place across the country, one of them on our very own home turf of San Francisco. It was a night packed full of fun, surprises, special guests and crazy excitement.

For starters, fans (100 of you, to be exact!) and media were greeted by UNCHARTED 2 on the big screen upon entering San Francisco's Landmark theater. From there, a brand new section of the game's single-player campaign (in the snowy Himalayas) was shown and introduced by Naughty Dog Creative Director Amy Hennig, who then shocked the crowd by announcing that everyone would be going home with a copy of the game... eight days early!

Needless to say, the place erupted. Shortly after, we caught up with Amy about the whole experience.





From there, a multiplayer tournament kicked off on a never-been-played map, with a Fortune Hunter Edition up for grabs to the winner. Emotions ran high (take that, people trying to watch the French indie flick next door!) and we discovered that many of you have definitely been practicing...
