197w ago - As part of PS3 and PSP Minis month, today SCEE's European Product Manager Adam Grant shared a video showcasing Red Bull X-Fighters in 2010.
To quote: Red Bull X-Fighters is currently on sale in the minis Special Offers section on the store. The game is based on the Red Bull X-Fighters International Freestyle Motorcross Championship and here is a re-cap of the 2009 Championship to get you in the mood!
After the most spectacular showdown in the history of Red Bull X-Fighters in London in 2009, the premier freestyle motocross series in the world returns in 2010 with new riders, new locations and plenty of new tricks.
This year will once again see the crème-de-la-crème of the international FMX scene battle it out for the coveted title of Red Bull X-Fighters Champion.
Jostling for a place with old classics such as the traditional curtain raiser in Mexico City (MEX) and the legendary two-day event in the Spanish capital of Madrid (ESP) will be new and exciting locations for 2010.
The second event of the six-stop Tour will take place in the shadow of the Pyramids and the world famous Sphinx in the city of Giza (EGY), where the dry heat and blazing sun will be sure to push the athletes to the limit.
204w ago - We first heard about them a few months ago, and today consumer brand Red Bull has officially added Flugtag and Illume to Sony's PlayStation Home.
To quote: "Red Bull Flugtag is a competition that challenges people to build human-powered flying machines, and the new PlayStation Home Red Bull Flugtag area will showcase some of the more creative contraptions that have been presented over the past 19 years.
Visitors will be able to try out some of these devices from the safety of their virtual representation, launching off the island's bamboo flight deck in an attempt to score a spot on the area's distance leaderboards.
The second area, Red Bull Illume, highlights pictures from the Red Bull Illume sports photography competition, which I'm sure is lovely if you're into that sort of thing."
210w ago - Today PlayStation Home Online Community Specialist Locust_Star has announced news of a new Red Bull space and event, Fight Night Producer chat and more heading to PlayStation Home this week.
To quote: Mark your calendars - this Thursday, November 26th, the next phase of the wildly popular Red Bull Island will be released in PlayStation Home. To complement the existing Red Bull Air Race World Championship mini-game, Red Bull will unleash two brand new spaces that will appeal to sports fans and beach bunnies alike.
The first, an exhibition of action and adventure sports photographs from Red Bull Illume. The winning photograph from each of the competition's ten categories is displayed on large illuminate cubes, imitating the real-life exhibit.
The second is a Red Bull Flugtag mini-game where users can compete against one another by launching one of five wild flying machines off of a 30-foot high deck in hopes of achieving flight. Think: The Wright Brothers... or that time you and your genius buddies decided to pile into your wagon and take a ride off the roof.
He who flies the farthest wins the high spot on...
225w ago - Some new PlayStation Home videos are available today via the Presentation Podium in preparation for the upcoming GamesCom event and also on the new Red Bull mini-game entitled Flugtag.
Check out the PlayStation Home GamesCom trailer courtesy of Alphazone4.co.uk (linked above), and the latter video highlights what Red Bull Flugtag is all about from fijiwaterboy on YouTube.
Finally, to quote from TheSixthAxis.com: "This is labelled 'Flugtag Game Space', and shows a similar island surrounding to the current 'Red Bull Air Race' space, along with a large pig being thrown off the side of a short pier.
We know that the real-life game is based on creating your own contraption that you think will take you the furthest through the air before you come crashing down into the water below. Some people make hand gliders, while others deliberately make massive rubber ducks just for fun. The crazier the better.
It's pure speculation how this game will be implemented into PlayStation Home, but looking at how the game is played in real life, and at Sony's 'Game 3.0′ view, this could possibly be one of the first user-generated content games that we've seen hit the Home service."
256w ago - PlayStation Home Community Manager CydoniaX shared the following via PS Blog:
For those of you who haven't already met me, I'm CydoniaX, the PlayStation Home Community Manager. I wanted to give you a quick update on new content coming to PlayStation Home this week.
First, the Red Bull space is going live! You'll be able to access it through your World Map by clicking on the Red Bull Air Race map tile. From there you can explore this tropical island and take part in different Red Bull events.
This week you'll be able to get inside the cockpit of a Red Bull Air Race plane and compete against other flyers on the Red Bull Air Race course. This is just the start of what we are working on for Red Bull Island with more to come in the next few months.
Ligne Roset and Diesel will now have their own storefronts in the PlayStation Home Mall, so that you will be able to locate these brands more easily.
For the SCEA region, if you pre-order "Killzone 2" for PS3 through Amazon you'll get an exclusive PlayStation Home costume for your Home avatar. With costume pieces for your head, torso, legs, hands and feet, you can customize your Home avatar to look like an ISA Soldier, a Helghast Assault...
