149w ago - SCEE Community Lead Alex Weekes has revealed today that Toy Story 3 is hitting PlayStation Home alongside this weeks content update, as follows:
The inner child in me went "squee!" when I first saw the personal space based on Disney-Pixar's Toy Story 3.
So it's with much joy that I can confirm the much-asked-for "Andy's Room" personal space releases this week! Upon entering the space you'll be transported to the world of Buzz Lightyear, Woody, and the other toys owned by Andy Davis.
Packed with mini-games and fun interactive elements, Andy's Room is a must-have addition to your personal space collection. To get the ultimate experience, pick up a costume of one of the much-loved characters from the movie.

152w ago - PlayStation Home Online Community Specialist Locust_Star has shared a video today highlighting the PlayStation Home E3 2010 Booth, Toy Story 3 and more!
To quote: Last week, PlayStation Home took a huge step forward in connecting gamers to their favorite PlayStation titles by bringing the E3 experience directly to their PlayStation 3 consoles via our virtual E3 Booth.
We wanted to take a moment to thank each and every one of you, the nearly quarter of a million gamers that have visited the booth since we launched it last Tuesday.
In the first day alone we had over 60,000 visitors (compare that to the 46,500 real world attendees -- more people visited the PlayStation Home E3 Booth in one day than did the Los Angeles Convention Center for the E3 festivities last week!)
Needless to say, the virtual E3 Booth event space has been a tremendous success. And we have you, the 14 million users that make up the illustrious PlayStation Home community, to thank for that.
After all, it was your idea to recreate the PlayStation E3 Booth for the hordes of gamers unable to attend in the flesh. It was your requests for bigger and better rewards that led to the development of all the awesome commemorative items associated with the space.

To quote: The game comes out in less than a week, and we can't wait for you all to get your hands on it. Developing this game was an extraordinary experience and a whole lot of fun.
Working closely with Pixar and in the Toy Story universe was an exciting opportunity, and we could not be happier with how the game turned out.
Back in April, we announced here that you can play as Buzz Lightyear's arch-nemesis Zurg only on the PlayStation 3. Despite being in Toy Story 2 for only a few minutes, he is our favorite character -- we're excited to have him in the game for you to experience and enjoy!
And today I wanted to share some more details on what you can expect when you pop in your PS3 copy of Toy Story 3: The Video Game and unlock the evil Emperor Zurg.
Zurg is quite a bit different from our other playable characters, which allowed us to create some fun things to do specifically as Zurg in Toy...
