Sony: Xi is Growing in PlayStation Home for PS3 Users!

50°
282w ago - Yesterday we reported on some PlayStation Home Alpha Zone 2 Images that were leaked, and today some official details are available from PlayStation Home Online Community Specialist Locust_Star, as follows:

Xi - the world's first console-based ARG, exclusive to PlayStation Home - just got bigger. The eagerly-awaited second Alpha Zone has opened up today, and there's plenty of fun stuff awaiting you. Can you escape the Fish Tanks of Good & Evil...?

There are a few numbered screens on the walls, promising more games and puzzles to come. The yin-yang symbol on the floor suggests there's a "light'n'dark, good'n'evil" theme to this place. But is everything as black and white as it seems? We're guessing not.

Given that this game has already included a giant jigsaw puzzle on billboards across Europe, a shiatsu massage game, flying cows, and a pair of classic text adventures, we're not quite sure what to expect next.

If you want to find out for yourself, fire up PlayStation Home and head for the Xi logo tagged on the wall in Central Plaza.

282w ago - It is not an uncommon practice to scour the Web, searching for news about your favorite upcoming games or a forum to discuss your favorite system.

Within the first 15 seconds of that search, you are bound to come across hordes of fanboyish articles stating that one console is better than the other. While neither side is innocent, there are many more Xbox love/PlayStation hate articles than any other, probably due to the system being around for an extra year.

What you may not know, or may not wish to admit, is that more and more Xbox 360, true fanboys, are making there way to the PlayStation 3. There are several questions I am sure you are wanting answered here, but lets focus on the general... What gives?

In the last six months, we have seen Sony step up it's gaming library with an onslaught of amazing titles that any gamer would feel naked without. Uncharted, Metal Gear Solid and Killzone 2 helped show the hardcore gamer that PlayStation 3 can brawl with the best of them while LittleBigPlanet, Motorstorm, Buzz and countless others helped involve even the most elementary of gamers into the next generation system.

It is true that Microsoft's LIVE service on the 360 is 2nd to none, and it should be. But what they don't want you to know, is that the PlayStation Network is gaining...
