247w ago - PlayStation Home Online Community Specialist Locust_Star made the following PlayStation Home RE5 announcement today via PS Blog:
We're sure you've checked out the awesome new Resident Evil 5 space, but in the event that you've been busy living under a rock (or dodging Helghast brass 24/7) there's no better time to log in to PlayStation Home and give the new space a spin than this Friday, March 13th.
Why? Cause this Friday is a ghoulish date sure to be made more deadly when you load up your brand new copy of Resident Evil 5, meet up with your fellow Home-boys and Home-girls in-world, launch into game, and start blasting the infected like it ain't no thang.
All you have to do is load Resident Evil 5 into your PlayStation 3 and then enter PlayStation Home. Once in-world, press Start > Game Launching > Set Up New Game > Resident Evil 5.
Remember, the maximum amount of players for any Resident Evil 5 campaign is two, so reserve a space for yourself and then go find a friend in the Resident Evil 5 game space to take the second slot. After you've done this, you'll be ready to descend into the waking nightmare that is Kijuju.
We'll be weaving in and out of the madness that is the Resident Evil 5 game space all day Friday, targeting you evil horde-slaying...
