Sony E3 Press Conference to stream in Home

05/30/2009

So far I have avoided rumors in this blog. But if this one is true you must know about it in advance in order to take advantage. So that having been said the rumor is that the Sony E3 Press conference will be streamed live onto the home presentation podium space screen.

Sony presentation podium in Home

Rumors also say that Home might be integrated into the press conference something like “We now go live to Locust_Star in home.” I personally hate rumors because they so often turn out to be just wish full thinking but you know I will be at the presentation podium space at 2:00pm Eastern on June 2nd.

Free inFamous Cole outfit for Home

05/30/2009

On the PlayStation forum Home manager Locust_Star revealed that on June 4th “Assuming you completed the inFAMOUS demo, it (Cole costume) will magically appear in your inventories”.

The most humorous response to this post was a reference to a current bug in home “Hopefully it doesn’t disappear just as magically”

Free Realms Enters Into Open Beta on the PC

04/27/2009

SOE’s candy colored PC mmo enters into open beta on Tuesday April 28, 2008. You can think of this game as an mmo for the casual gamer. The attempt is to attract families, tweens and teens into a free fun casual environment. Variety is a key feature of this game. Activities include cart racing, exploration, pet training, mini games, a trading card game and the usual mmo fair of gaining experience to level fantasy characters.

If you understand mmo terms such as Grind, Pull, Power Level and Mob Aggro then this might not be the game for you, but the mmo curious and the young should find something of interest in Free Realms. Now you might be saying to yourself “Why is this PC game showing up in a PS3 blog?” Well the answer is that Sony Online Entertainment is no longer under the umbrella of Sony Pictures and has been moved under Sony Computer Entertainment. That means that SOE will finally start producing games for the PS3 and Free Realms is looking to be the first out of the gate later this year.

If you are interested in trying this free PC mmo head to www.FreeRealms.com and join the open beta.

Locust_Star says “Xi has not been ruined”

04/01/2009

Home moderator Locust_Star responding to hackers that maliciously hacked Xi and gained access to the last scene of the game, said that “Xi has not been ruined”. He/she goes on to say about the Xi hackers actions “Note that this is essentially the worst transgression one can be guilty of short of utilizing the Home platform for real world crimes. Its called game disruption, but I personally consider that term a bit too soft – this kind of behavior is antithetical to what gaming and Home is ultimately all about.”
