UNCHARTED 2: Among Thieves Hits PlayStation Home + Tekken 6 & Street Fighter IV Spaces

Locust_Star's Avatar + Posted by Locust_Star on Oct 21, 2009 // PlayStation Home Community Manager

It’s one of the biggest releases of the entire year and it’s about to get much, much bigger. This Thursday, October 22 Friday, October 23, UNCHARTED 2: Among Thieves is coming into PlayStation Home, and you’ll want to do whatever it is that needs to be done to ensure that you are in-world to take part in the grand opening of this awesome new space. Why? Because not only is this game space chock full of amazing supplementary UNCHARTED 2 content that can only be experienced in the ever-evolving world of PlayStation Home, but there are quite a few exclusive items that can only be procured on opening day.

Home UNCHARTED 2 Space 2

Set inside a breathtaking Nepalese village surrounding that was constructed with assets pulled directly from the game, this immersive environment contains three unique UNCHARTED 2-themed mini-games that will keep you coming back for more. Treasure hunters will be driven to the Mask Mayhem questing mini-game where you must search throughout the village to assemble the scattered remnants of an ancient Ganesh mask (which, upon completion, miraculously appears in your Wardrobe). Adventurers that pride themselves on their agility will love the challenge presented by the Torch Race, and will revel in getting their PSN IDs plastered on the game’s leaderboard. Action addicts with a penchant for strategy will be engrossed by the Fortunate Thieves card battle game where players will seek out treasure on maps that are fully dynamic (with weather and terrain effects,) all while using the expandable card pack to thwart one another with a bevy of treacherous tricks. Check out the video below to see this space and the associated games for yourself, with even more details explained by PlayStation Home Director Jack Buser.

We also have two new game spaces launching this Thursday Friday that are sure to appeal to all of you fighting fans out there. That’s right – Tekken 6 and Street Fighter IV are getting their own dedicated game spaces. These game spaces come loaded with Tekken 6 and Street Fighter IV-related content and will serve as the perfect hubs for all of you bare-knuckled brawlers and PlayStation 3 pugilists that are looking for areas to organize game launching tournaments (or just looking for a new opponent to quickly pummel). To top it all off, 25 Street Fighter IV alternate costumes will also be released tomorrow, so head to the Mall to guile up and then get to swinging.

Speaking of great new content to collect, the new Penthouse personal space will be released tomorrow. High rollers, big ballers, shot callers, and those of you that simply have a taste for the finer things in life will find this luxury urban condo the ideal place to return to after a raging event in Central Plaza. You can pick this new place up for yourself at the Estates store in the Mall (along with a boatload of new virtual items releasing this week).

Last, but certainly not least, you’ll notice that a new version of PlayStation Home – version 1.32 – will be prompted for download when you attempt to login. This client update will address many of the issues that the community has reported to us post-1.3. You should find that gaining access to the service is much, much, MUCH easier. So if you’ve had problems logging into Home over the last few weeks, have no fear, and be sure to get into PlayStation Home later this week to take part in all of the radness scheduled to occur.

See you in Home!

Looks amazing guys :P

+ the only way i can get into HOME now is by Quitting HOME when i’m in the HOME Square. If i quit the game in my Apartment then the game will crash/get stuck when i try to load up HOME. So i have to Delete my Apartment saves all the time :( At least i can get in i suppose :D [i have deleted it all but it still happens to]
Hopefully the new update will fix this. Thanks :)

Hi everyone,
This publish is taking a bit longer than expected so to be safe, we’re prepared to see it go live on Friday. It’s a big one, but it will be worth it!

OH, OKAY!! There is going to be a penthouse personal space as in, an actual penthouse. When I saw this on PSU.com, I thought they were talking about a PENTHOUSE space. I thought, “Whoa, Sony is going NSFW?”

Starting to think my Playstation was turning into an XXXbox.

Tekken is awful! They should save bandwidth and just release Dissidia. That would be awesome because it still isn’t on PSN yet.

@57

No, it’s not “your fault” they released an update that would freeze up at the initialization screen. What IS “your fault” is not using your internet connection to see if there’s an easy fix for a problem you claim to be so upset about. And it’s also “your fault” for ingnoring other users continually giving you and other people complaining about the initialization freeze the answer to help you out.

Hey guys all of this sounds good but hopefully it will fix the logging in issues. Myself and many others have deleted home due to not being able to log in after update 1.30,after trying for hours to log in and trying all of the fixes. So to get to my point whats the use of all these spaces if most users can’t even log in.

Why does my PS3 freeze when I go to HOME? I updated it today, but when I try to log in, it freezes!!!

+ SpeedRacer1955 on October 21st, 2009 at 1:07 pm said:

@81 If you wait for tomorrow then you could get the apparent fix and not have to delete anything…

And since there is nothing happening until tomorrow then I personally would wait!!!

Hi Locust_star,

This is exactly what Home needs. Mini-games. Since PS3 is a gaming console, the only way to make people use Home and enjoy it, is to have games. We are gamers after all! Believe me, there is nothing worst than wandering around and doing nothing. :)

Here are a couple of improvements I would like to see from you guys and hopefully make it a kick ass place:
1) Add abilities to our avatars i.e jump, fly, shoot with water guns etc. We want our avatars to do something fun, not just walking.
2) Make Home universal. At this age of globalization, it is unimaginable to not been able to enjoy Home with friends who are from other continents.
3) Make Home open world like GTA. It will feel more like a virtual world than just lifeless rooms.

Thanks.

I know this may sound absurd, but I am wondering what would happen if a trophy system was implemented for using Home. For instance, get a trophy for participating in certain community events or for launching a certain amount of games from Home. I wonder if Trophies have that kind of power to have people visit Home more often?

And Home was made by SCEE (Sony Computer Enter. Europe)

either give us the full experience or please go [DELETED] yourself Sony and keep your [DELETED]
