200°
290w ago - PlayStation Home Online Community Specialist Locust_Star broke news today on an enormous update that will be heading to Sony's PlayStation Home.

To quote: Locust_Star here dropping in to give you the straight truth on what new goodies to expect in PlayStation Home this week. Simply put, this is one of the biggest content updates in the history of Home - and we think you're going to dig what we have in store for you.

By popular demand, we have brought the Siren: Blood Curse space over from Japan (this space will appear in the [Register or Login to view links] at a later date). The basic overview is this: The Siren Home space is broken up into three basic zones. When you first enter the Siren space, you're outside the Ward of Despair, in what looks like an old, rundown carnival space. The entrance to the Ward is just a few steps away.

Upon entering it, you'll find yourself in the mini-game's lobby. Inside you'll see video screens on the walls and places to sit and mingle with other players waiting their turn to enter the Ward of Despair mini game.

When you're ready to play, simply approach the receptionist and she'll send you into the Ward (assuming that the background downloading is complete, which begins upon entry to the lobby...

StageSet Machinima Tool for PlayStation Home Coming Soon

100°
290w ago - According to some [Register or Login to view links] at Loot, Sony is poised to release a Machinima Utility for PlayStation Home.

The reports say this could be realized within a couple of weeks. The developer of the project wanted to combine the best aspects of Home: social activity and interactive experiences.

To quote: Instead of making a traditional game, or even an ARG (which is the way a lot of Home development was going), we wanted to make something that would really encourage the player to get together with their friends and have some fun.





Being spawned from a movie company, it is pretty easy to see how we were inspired to make a movie stage/set. It's really cool to walk through the lot every day and peek inside the huge stages, so we figured that other people would be psyched to have their own stage and even make some movies, too.

After that, we went crazy putting all sorts of lighting and camera controls, green screens, backdrops, etc in the limited amount of time we had.
