PlayStation Home-esque Experience Coming to XBox Live?

300°
276w ago - Today Joystiq (linked above) received some interesting info from a reader, who claimed to have taken part in a survey run by Microsoft which featured avatars playing classic arcade games in a virtual arcade setting.

If that sounds familiar, you probably played PlayStation Home before.

To quote: If a consumer survey sent over to us by a tipster is to be believed, Microsoft is looking to bring a virtual Avatar arcade to the Xbox 360. Some of the potential names listed in the survey are "Game Room," "RetroCade," "Tower of ROM," and "Classics LIVE." Yeah, we're partial to "Tower of ROM" also.

If the proposed service sounds familiar, that's because it's nearly identical to PlayStation Home's arcade spaces - like Namco's virtual arcade - just replace the dead-eyed dopplegangers of Home with the scrunchable avatars of Xbox 360.

The second survey question sent to us asks, "Which of the following names would most compel you to purchase the product?" indicating that the "Tower of ROM" might not be a free space but could instead have a fee associated with it.

European PlayStation Store Update for October 8, 2009

276w ago - Today SCEE PlayStation Store Team Mike Kebby has posted the European PSN update, as follows:

It's been pretty hectic here since last week's store update (and Media Go store launch), but that's not to say we haven't been busy putting together more content for you this week.

We should also be back to normal service regarding update times, but we'll update the post once the stores are live (I believe Jem may even be planning to tweet you all once it's live too).

I think we've carried on the PSP momentum fairly well this week, with a few more minis titles available; Sudoku, Mahjongg Tales, Yummy Yummy Cooking Jam, (and made those released last week available to some additional stores) another batch of PSP games such as Tomb Raider Legend, Daxter, Holy Invasion of Privacy Badman! and Prinny?

Can I Really Be the Hero?, as well as a couple of new PSP games releasing on Friday morning (Obscure the Aftermath and NBA Live 10). We have also added some special offers to the PSP Store (and Media Go) and more information on these can be found in the content list below.

Our PS3 content also grows this week, with the addition of two games, Comet Crash and Digger HD, whilst we also finish off the Fallout 3 DLC with the final two packs Point Lookout and Mothership...
