PlayStation Home Update: Urgent Fury Joins Community Theater, New Items + More

GlassWalls's Avatar Posted by GlassWalls on Feb 16, 2011 // PlayStation Home Community Specialist

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/.

Wait, if the HCV wave has ended, but the next one (which I’m hoping to be part of! Already applied and all!) hasn’t begun, whos giving the tours of the 2nd Floor?

Great Update! But I would like more original shows from Sony itself, such as an informative show that would address the news on PS Home, or something near GTTV (and free).

    Among the Home Community Theater partners, one is so perfectly right on with what you want, I’m surprised you haven’t heard of them. Gamer Indepth has a few series of shows that cover various aspects of the Home community. For timely news that cover Home’s hottest content updates, be sure to check out the HomeCast Rewind episodes. For community goings-on, ShoutOuts is sure to keep you kept up to date. Lastly, Replay with Doc and FxyMxy has been recently bringing us interviews with most of The Tester 2 folks—this week interviewing Gaymer.

The Killzone 3 offerings, and total take over got me back into home for a bit. I would really enjoy seeing something like this for every Exclusive released. I think it would help expand the community and turn PS Home into something greater.

Home seriously need a way to play your music directly into it, i thought the Mansion with such a price was to help cover issues for “rights management” to bring some sort of streaming.. my fav place in Home is Amesteau* Yacht.. alot of tv shows and mini shows to watch an its updated offten… i be there watching tv playing checkers!
