Sony’s Home USA server finally getting some love with Xi

03/24/2009

It was once said about Sony’s Home Asian servers that “the grass is not greener over there it is made of gold”. It has long been the case that the Asian server has been the testbed for programming items and item functionality, such as mall transactions, Item drops while playing games, and free homespace item and clothing giveaways. On the US server we seem to be the social test server. With things like the first user to answer these questions on the forum and win a T-shirt, or having a Halloween “event”. BTW “event” turned out to be server load test with a few posters changed in the plaza and a <mod> showing up to take a few snapshots.

Well it looks like they are finally applying some coding to the US server. Xi is a VR world puzzle (ARG) game with weekly additions to content. It is a follow the clues type game.
