This Thursday, February 17th marks the launch of the newest member of the PlayStation Home Community Theater program: Urgent Fury! Urgent Fury is a gaming community focused mainly on FPS games, most notably the SOCOM franchise and will be sharing exclusive videos with the Home community beginning this Thursday. Patrick “Commander Fury” Gross of UF has this to say:
“Our goal in Urgent Fury has always been to create a ‘central hub’ for tactical gamers everywhere – a place where they can congregate and compete in a friendly environment. We believe that Urgent Frequency Television is an extension of that philosophy and allows us to reach a whole new audience. We can’t wait to bring our videos directly to the PlayStation Home community.”
Also playing this week in the Community Theater is the newest edition of the HomeCast Rewind series and the latest episode of Replay with Doc, which includes an interview with the winner of The Tester Season 2 (SPOILER!), Gaymer.
The PlayStation Home Mall receives an update this week with new furniture, clothing, and active items – including new lighting options for the party-minded. Check out this video that highlights some of this week’s virtual item offerings.
Speaking of virtual items, nDreams is bringing horror fans a variety of new decorations from the upcoming film Monsters. Visit the PlayStation Home Mall this Thursday to pick up yours.
VeeMee’s London Pub Radio – included in the London Pub personal space – gets new tunes this week. So Timeless blends the classic soul sounds of the 70’s with 90’s lyricism and today’s swagger while Pierre Massé showcases singer/songwriter stylings in “Give the World.” Electric Sugar Children’s sparkly and shiny “Lead Singer Syndrome” leads to Electroverse’s busy space-jams and Order 66’s bouncy pop-punk. Visit your London Pub personal space (available from the Estates store) this Thursday to check out the new music and then submit your own original material for potential inclusion in future updates at http://www.veemee.com/thelondonpub/radio/.
Your friendly neighborhood Home Community Volunteers will be offering tours of the Home Mansion’s Second Floor with Game Room. Sign up for a tour come this Thursday at http://community.us.playstation.com/community/general_home. Note the playable pool table and dart board!
