XI HAS BEGUN!

CydoniaX's Avatar + Posted by CydoniaX on Mar 23, 2009 // PlayStation Home Community Manager

The world’s first console-based Alternate Reality Game starts today in PlayStation Home.

Called Xi , the adventure takes place in a series of secret areas in Home – and beyond – changing day by day, week by week, in real time. Anyone with a PLAYSTATION 3 can join in the fun for free.

To discover the mystery of Xi, simply log on to PlayStation Home and look for the graffiti on the wall in the main square. Find that, and all will be revealed….

    This is just the beginning…seriously, if you haven\’t checked out Home in awhile, we are now busting out new content regularly. Xi is just a part of this, though an extremely cool part of it. Check it out!

++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++
When are we getting game launching abilities for every multiplayer game in the PS3 library? Why is it that the most basic of features for both the XMB and HOME get prioritized and delivered before all the extra stuff?

1) XMB – Voice Chat across games
2) XMB – Voice messaging(30 sec clip)
3) HOME – Game Launching for all games

Deliver what the fans want first and foremost then surprise us with all this Xi stuff.

    All that stuff is still in development, game launching started with Warhawk and should be supported by all future game spaces now. It takes time, but we haven\’t forgotten about all the stuff that our users really want!

    Guys, some clarification seems to be needed on my above comment, apologies for being misleading. I was talking about voice chat for Home in general being worked on, not specifically about voice chat across games or voice messaging on the XMB. I can see how my quick answer was taken as a confirmation on all 3 items, but this is not the case.

I hope this is as good as the LOST alternate reality games!

If anyone hasn’t participated in ARG’s, you might be disappointed. But to those of us who have, let the games begin!

i stopped using home because it always has to load at the start up and it takes a long time, it also has to load every time i switch places, i cant take it, it takes tooo long, why? why not install the whole thing instead of dl all the time?

Thumbs up to the developers.
