This Week in Home: Castlevania: Lord of Shadows, Contra, Scion Event & More!

Locust_Star's Avatar Posted by Locust_Star on Sep 29, 2010 // PlayStation Home Community Manager

This week brings yet another exciting event to PlayStation Home’s Central Plaza. Scion’s “Take on the Machine” activity pits man against steel in a race (or shall we say “chase”) across plaza where players pursue a fleet of 2011 Scion tCs. The fastest and most agile players will unlock exclusive rewards and earn their place amongst the PlayStation Home elite. Log in to PlayStation Home this Thursday, September 30th to join the challenge and then head to TakeOnTheMachine.com for additional information on the all new Scion tC and to find a dealer near you.

Konami dives into PlayStation Home this week with both Castlevania: Lords of Shadow and Contra gear for your avatar. Dress up as Lance Bean and Bill Rizer of Contra fame as well as Gabriel Belmont from the upcoming Castlevania: Lords of Shadow PS3 game. Be sure to check out these new items, available from the PlayStation Home Mall this Thursday, September 30th.

Also available this week from the Furniture store in the PlayStation Home Mall is Shandor, the all-knowing, the all-seeing. This fortune telling-mini game is the newest addition to our line of personal games. Toss coins into the mouth of Shandor and, if you are successful, he will peer into his crystal ball (or maybe it’s just a magic 8-ball?) and tell you the future.

The mega-popular PlayStation Home Community Theater receives yet another update this week, with a new episode of the legendary GamerIndepth videocast. Narde15 – Executive Editor of GamerIndepth – had this to say about their newest addition to the PlayStation Home Community Theater.

“Hey everybody – be sure to log into PlayStation Home this Thursday to check out our second episode of GamerIndepth’s ‘ShoutOuts.’ The week we have a short, informative conversation on Mass Media (and all of the hot items and spaces they are responsible for) as well as an interview with Director_On_Duty from PSTalent, who tells us about how he got started and what his future plans are as far as PlayStation Home is concerned. Plus everyone that catches this week’s episode will be rewarded with an awesome GamerIndepth t-shirt!”

See you in Home!

How long will the Scion event be available? My PS3 broke and it’ll be about a week until I get a new one.

Guess we will have to see how much of what has been announced THIS week will actually make it into Home. Thanks for keeping everyone posted on what happened with the Heavy Rain content from LAST week. Why dont you get someone on board who cares enough about the community to follow-through with communication!!

Hey Locust and Glass. I just wanted to say thank you for listening to some of my suggestions on the message boards for Castlevania on Playstation Home. The Contra Costumes are a nice extra and the icing on the cake. Thanks for talking to Konami and getting the developers to make these new items happen. I’ll be sure to buy all three costumes tomorrow.

Are the Contra and Castlevania costumes available for female avatars? feeling is that every male version should have a female version, just like we had for the Assassin’s Creed costume, the Predator and Aliens costumes, and so on. :-)
