I Love Ninjas in PlayStation Home

CydoniaX's Avatar Posted by 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?

I really wont to SOCOM T_T.

Oh wow.. thats cool. I know someone will be really happy about the Pirate outfit. I just can’t wait for the Warhawk space to finally be here. I figured that would have launched way before Far Cry or Uncharted.

IS anyone else having problems getting into home ? I keep getting a message that there was a problem downloading content. Everytime sony do something to home I cant get on home.

Fiest I would like to say Playstation Home is Awsome it just needs some more stuff.I know you all are working hard and fast and all that but how about letting us have jobs on there and virtual credit cards to use as well.Sure the contests are cool and all that but jobs and virtual credit cards would be really cool and a dance hall with like songs from all styles of music to pick from and some food and drinks for our avatars and t.v.’s stereo’s and a frige for our house I’m talking a real virtual life.

I have all kinds of ideas for Playstation Home want to know more email me and let’s talk.


+ cmargary on February 12th, 2009 at 6:14 am said:

Home isn’t bad really… is just they only some spaces to talk and virtually hang out but the gamers lounge if is done correctly and not just a space to chat.

Love to see the Warhawk space and hopping to see a Killzone2 at launch or at soon as you can.

BTW… where’s the trophy room?

ummm. This is totally awesome. Its nice to see things on the Home front picking up with events and game spaces and ladder boards coming because as much as fun Home is to just sit there and talk, we need to give it some more meat and I see a lot of delicious meat coming *drools like Homer…..meeeaaatttt*

CydoniaX replied on February 10, 2009 at 12:43 pm
I like the meat analogy!

I love the possibilities of what HOME brings to the table… I hope the whole thing with the ladder boards continues to grow. I’m kinda getting tired of going to my PC to log on to web sites, sign in for a clan battle, and try an work all the gamespects out there befor returning to the PS3.

I-N-T-E-G-R-A-T-I-O-N is the key. Integrating the game battle website mentality with the system will be the coolest thing ever! It seems to fit with HOME. It just needs to be done.

FYI- Be nice if you could let us watch videos, listen to music, or put up our own pics in our personal spaces or club houses. Just a thought.

Did..did…did you say ninja’s? You said ninja’s right!?
UGH! *Foaming at the mouth*
This is looking really promising; who am i kidding, it’s already a great experience, getting better by the week.

suggestion (box):
Breakdance for one of the , “taunt/dance” movements
Hurray for Baggie pants.

P.S I apologies for the idiots , who host their “gamer input-tv shows” which criticize your (as a team) work. You guys are doing and outstanding job and needless to say, “you make us look good” (will smith)
Keep up the goodies


+ Flamehead222 on February 12th, 2009 at 4:33 pm said:

Wait. How are you supposed to get these costumes? It says you can get them from doing in game actions. Well what do you have to do?? Play games?


+ steveillegal on February 12th, 2009 at 7:53 pm said:

Oh man this is what I’m talking about.
You Guys are really going beastmode on this one!
Wow I am just woah I’ll see you at the ninja party!
Let’s see lame old XBOX top that!

Wrestling, bands and comic book days.

@ Jack Buser, CydoniaX or anybody who might still be checking out responses in this thread … I’ve GOT to ask the question – WHY does the “Gamer’s Lounge” have absolutely NO “ambient/background” noise going on?

Am I the only person that digs the space but can’t stand to hang out there for more than a few minutes because of the unsettling silence.

It just doesn’t seem in-line with the rest of the public Home spaces … every single one (and even some of the private spaces) have SOME type of “white noise” going on.

Are you planning on adding sound to “The Gamer’s Lounge” space? Please say yes because to me (and I would assume others – it’s like water torture in its current state.


+ etur0 on February 13th, 2009 at 7:49 am said:

does every1 in the lounge has 2 be in either the ninja suit or be in black clothing in order 4 me 2 get the vouchers or will the people that r in ninja outfits or all black will get with other people there that rnt


+ etur0 on February 13th, 2009 at 7:50 am said:

+ Frosty_Iceman on February 13th, 2009 at 1:57 pm said:

I sooo envy you guys…

I haven’t been able to use HOME…

I start it up and log in, but the initial download never finishes. I always get an error message before the bar even starts to fill.
I can play games online with hardly any issues, so I don’t know what the problem is here.

Any tips?

I really look forward to gearing up as Rikimaru or Ken…


+ DAVE_XNINE on February 13th, 2009 at 2:55 pm said:

It’s probably too late, but a lot of people are asking me if the baggy brown pants on the male avatar are acceptable for the Ninja contest.


+ maxima24 on February 13th, 2009 at 3:41 pm said:

This is getting better all the time. Keep up the good work. Thank you SONY. Thank you all the hard coders and Mods and hardware PPL for keeping my PS3 the most fun console out there.

+ Anubis80 on February 14th, 2009 at 1:45 pm said:

Ok I am not officially done with home. $2.00 for 1 shirt? Are you kidding me? What a rip off. I know you guys want to make money but thats a joke. You are taking advantage of people. I just now logged out of HOME and wont ever touch it again. Thanks for the huge disappointment.


+ psychomonkey350 on February 14th, 2009 at 1:50 pm said:

I really want to be more positive about Home, but it just seems to keep disappointing. I logged in today to check out the new Gamer’s Lounge. That was a waste of time. There’s nothing to do there except talk to others. I guess maybe that’s the point, but if all Sony wants to do is create a chat one, why don’t they just create a chat room and quit wasting resources on Home? And the place was dead silent. No ambient noise whatsoever except for the bubble machine someone had placed. Couldn’t Sony at least throw in same ambient noise, maybe make your character’s footsteps make a sound. But, no, there’s nothing. It’s one of the times I wish they’d bring back voice chat so that there wasn’t just dead silence. If Sony isn’t even going to provide the crappy muzak that the mall and bowling alley have, how about letting users have in-game music? It needs something to make Home seem lively.

im australian and how much of this stuff on the eu home will we get? i kno tht we dont hve cafe and or the ninja costumes

I wanna see you guys work some rewards in through MLB 09 that would be sweet to show my team allegiance in HOME.


+ Cobazz on February 16th, 2009 at 1:11 am said:

Hi, Cydonia, I have been trying to get a hold of you and Locust_Star for a while about an idea I had for Home. Some others have probably suggested it, but I still think it is worth a shot. I think it would be cool if we had jobs in Home. Like waiters and bartenders. We could have help desks run by people who play and know a lot. We could earn salaries that we might be able to use at a bar or restaurant to buy food or drink. It is just an idea. I really hope you will find my comment. I will keep trying to get a hold of you in the future. Please look for me! Thanks for reading.

(I also think it would be cool to be your friend on PSN, although you should already have a lot of friends. Hope to see you on Home. And I really appreciate all the work you do.)

hi, this looks great!
i would personally like to see more home spaces and picture frames to display on your walls at your home space. oh and wall papers for summer house?

you guys should get konami on board with playstation home so you can make a metal gear lounge! …or outfits at least. i think a series thats been around for 22 years deserves some recognition on here considering its fanbase grew drastically since being on the playstation. that and maybe more places based on lighter themed game series. oh and more mini games because bowling is always packed along with pool. that and bring over draughts/checkers to us home. i think im done ranting now lol
