I Love Ninjas in PlayStation Home

CydoniaX's Avatar + Posted by CydoniaX on Feb 10, 2009 // PlayStation Home Community Manager

We’ve got some big plans for PlayStation Home coming up, some of which may involve ninjas and street fighters. We thought that would grab your attention. It did for us at SCEA.

And as we continue to expand upon existing content with PlayStation Home spaces, we’ve introduced a leaderboard for the Red Bull Air Race in the Red Bull space. We recently made the most of these new leaderboards with a contest to see who could get the highest scores. Shopaholics rejoice too, you’ll find some cool new virtual items at the mall, including ninja and pirate costumes.

As you may have heard, Capcom is set to expand its blockbuster franchises globally with Street Fighter and Resident Evil within PlayStation Home. Resident Evil 5 fans can launch straight from PlayStation Home into the game. And for the Street Fighter fans, Capcom is bringing Street Fighter IV costumes and additional themed content to PlayStation Home, much of which will be unlocked through in-game actions.

I know that is a lot to digest, but that’s not all … in the next few months, gamers will find even more clothing, furniture and events taking place throughout PlayStation Home, including the launch of the Warhawk space (complete with game launching), SOCOM space, and the recently announced Gamer’s Lounge. This will be another hang-out space for the community to mix and mingle, just like you would at a real lounge. We will also hold special events here such as developer talks and parties. Along with the spaces, you can bet you’ll find even more impromptu promotions and giveaways taking place.

And as for the ninjas …. On February 12th, sweet ninja outfits will be available for purchase at the Mall to dress your PlayStation Home avatar up in. Yeah, ninja outfits! And to celebrate their arrival, we’re holding a contest: On February 13th, we’ll be holding an event called “I Love Ninjas.” The first instance of the brand-new community-named Home hang-out space, the Gamer’s Lounge, to be completely filled with people in ninja costumes (or a reasonable facsimile using all-black clothing items in your inventory) that we see will win vouchers for SOCOM and Warhawk to celebrate the upcoming spaces.

What events would you like to see?

Slightly off topic:

Are there still codes available through Amazon for the Killzone costumes if I preorder this weekend?

Wow i’m looking forward and i think you guys are doing great. As for possible events,why not have an Artist event where everyone can submit art to be put in a virtual art exhibit or something. Also i saw the other day a list of 24 companies that will be making spaces in home,but didn’t see companies like Insomniac,2K,Guerrilla Games ,Square-Enix,etc…And was just wondering if you guys have contacted these companies about possible Home spaces? if not then i guess this a great opportunity.

Ninjas! Yeah! Will you release Naruto costumes as well?

It’d be great if you could unlock special moves as actions your avatar could perform so people could simulate mock battles.

It would also be awesome if you had like a battle arena where you can enter a fight mode to duke it out between Home avatars. ;)

YOU MEAN I CAN LOOK LIKE RYU WHILE I STAND AROUND AIMLESSLY DOING NOTHING IN A HORRIBLE MARKETING EXPERIMENT BEING PASSED OFF AS A GAME?! AWESOME.

Use your time more wisely Sony and game developers. Home is lame. In every single way possible. The only cool thing about it is figuring out how to exploit it and use glitches to do cool stuff.

If only there were some way to earn virtual money in home. It’s sad that I don’t have anything that makes me capable of buying any of these awesome things. But even when I’m crying because I can’t get anything in Home (European dude here btw) I still think it’s cool what you people are doing with (or to?) it :P

Keep up the great job

Why must game launching only be available to supported games???

We should have supported game rooms yes…but…
also allow us to load into whatever game we desire with individuals in our friend list.

I realize that I don’t have all the information, such as server restrictions, however; I have to admit, I sometimes wonder what really happens in dev brainstorming sessions…

Home has sooo much potential, yet the best ideas often go unanswered. Some of us, myself included have come up with fantastic suggestions, but have yet to receive any real feedback.

In all honesty, I don’t care what people say, if all my ideas on
THIS LIST
were added, there would be very few major suggestions left over.

I’m sure people would find something to complain about, but Home would be a much more difficult place to criticize.

Think about it…

@159

Maybe it’s because YOU HAVE NO FRIENDS TO ENJOY IT WITH!!!!!!!!!!!!!

We should have this type of acessories or costumes that can be unlocked or retrieved via promo-code for every PS3 game. Friends can meet up in Home and dress up as their favorite game characters – sort of a virtual “cosplay” – similar to what LBP has.
This would also provide additional incentive for purchasing PS3 merchandise.
