Celebrate Halloween PlayStation Home-Style at the Zombie Rally

50°
274w ago - Today PlayStation Home Online Community Specialist Locust_Star has announced news of a PlayStation Home Halloween bash set for this weekend.

To quote: As you may know from visiting Central Plaza in the last few weeks or watching one of the recent newscasts on PULSE, zombies have staged a full-on invasion of PlayStation Home.

It's certainly no coincidence that the living dead are coming out of the woodwork just in time for Halloween (it is their version of Thanksgiving, after all - complete with morsels of mortals upon which to ravenously feast).

We here on the PlayStation Home Community Management team want to roll out the proverbial red carpet for our reanimated brethren and throw the biggest (brainiest?) bash of the year, but we'll need your help in overcoming a few obstacles along the way.

First and foremost, we're asking that all of you ghouls and gals visit the DeadQuarters to "undead yourself" (and all of your friends). There's no need for any complex magical systems or exposure to dangerous radiation, simply enter the DeadQuarters (whether it is your own space or a friend's) and watch as your wardrobe fills up with free zombie items. Becoming one of the walking dead has never been easier.

While many of us are happy to embrace zombies...

274w ago - Konami announced today that Frogger Returns will be hitting the PS3 on PlayStation Network and the Nintendo Wii via WiiWare.

To quote: "This modern take on the franchise adds a few power-ups (like the ability to reverse and stop time) and invincibility.

Frogger Returns promises to be "12 times the size of the original" and will also offer "local multiplayer," according to the official press release. No details on price were revealed, but Konami's aiming for a release on both WiiWare and PlayStation Network later this fall."

Press Release: El Segundo, Calif. - October 28, 2009 - Konami Digital Entertainment, Inc. today announced Frogger Returns for Nintendo WiiWare and PlayStation Network. Based on the timeless arcade game, the latest iteration of Frogger delivers the addictive dodge-and-run gameplay fans know and love on an all-new platform.

In Frogger Returns, players are thrown back into the hustle and bustle of city life to guide their amphibious friend, Frogger, from the city back to his home marsh.

Frogger Returns stays true to the classic arcade gameplay style, but is enhanced with improved graphics, a new camera angle, and new levels. Streets, sewers, subways, and numerous other obstacles and enemies are in play - all for the sake of keeping Frogger away...
