Dr. Abraham Zucco — eccentric billionaire, brilliant anthropologist, and global adventurer — has traveled the world far and wide in search of the Yeti or “Abominable Snowman.” Recent sightings and mysterious footprints have convinced the famed explorer that an entire colony of creatures is somewhere in PlayStation Home. The wealthy hunter has offered great rewards to anyone who can capture the violent and territorial beast. This Wednesday, January 25th, scores of hunters will descend on PlayStation Home to take down these vicious monsters.
