I Love Ninjas in PlayStation Home

We’ve got some big plans for PlayStation Home coming up, some of which may involve ninjas and street fighters. We thought that would grab your attention. It did for us at SCEA.

And as we continue to expand upon existing content with PlayStation Home spaces, we’ve introduced a leaderboard for the Red Bull Air Race in the Red Bull space. We recently made the most of these new leaderboards with a contest to see who could get the highest scores. Shopaholics rejoice too, you’ll find some cool new virtual items at the mall, including ninja and pirate costumes.

As you may have heard, Capcom is set to expand its blockbuster franchises globally with Street Fighter and Resident Evil within PlayStation Home. Resident Evil 5 fans can launch straight from PlayStation Home into the game. And for the Street Fighter fans, Capcom is bringing Street Fighter IV costumes and additional themed content to PlayStation Home, much of which will be unlocked through in-game actions.

I know that is a lot to digest, but that’s not all … in the next few months, gamers will find even more clothing, furniture and events taking place throughout PlayStation Home, including the launch of the Warhawk space (complete with game launching), SOCOM space, and the recently announced Gamer’s Lounge. This will be another hang-out space for the community to mix and mingle, just like you would at a real lounge. We will also hold special events here such as developer talks and parties. Along with the spaces, you can bet you’ll find even more impromptu promotions and giveaways taking place.

And as for the ninjas …. On February 12th, sweet ninja outfits will be available for purchase at the Mall to dress your PlayStation Home avatar up in. Yeah, ninja outfits! And to celebrate their arrival, we’re holding a contest: On February 13th, we’ll be holding an event called “I Love Ninjas.” The first instance of the brand-new community-named Home hang-out space, the Gamer’s Lounge, to be completely filled with people in ninja costumes (or a reasonable facsimile using all-black clothing items in your inventory) that we see will win vouchers for SOCOM and Warhawk to celebrate the upcoming spaces.

What events would you like to see?

Hey Jack, I have a quick question.
I’m a high school student in California and we have to do these senior projects. Now what we have to do is to job shadow someone in a field that we’re interested in. And I’ve been really thinking that I want to get into the videogame business. So would you be able to let me shadow you? or do you know of someone that I can shadow?

Hmmm seems like there won’t be any game launching with the SOCOM game space….

I’ll say AGAIN we need LEADERBOARDS in Bowling on Home. What are big white boards that have no purpose but to blind my eyes with the WHITE. I mean come on HOME TEAM and give us leaderboards. I’m sick of sitting with 4 people taking a hour to almost get ONE game done and have mothing to show for it in leaderboards but with the Aircraft crap you have leaderboards?? What did I miss here?

SLICK_T said:

February 10th, 5:36 pm

Leaderboards in BOWLINg I will repeat this till I hear a Answer from someone from this blog! I’ll keep coming back on every other blog bringing this up. You bring out stupid gear and clothes and its been months the beta has been out and no DA*N leaderboards to keep track of our scores and averages on home. I mean come on. Plus what the heck is up with the leaderboards JUST showing the top 10 it she be a leaderboard showing the Top 100 people. I mean come on you guys thats lame just top qo in a leaderboard COME ON! Plus in the aircraft I must be around the top 20 but I have nothing to show for it cause you have ONLY STUPID TOP 10 showing and no other way for others on home to see EVERYONES times. We deserve to see EVERYONE that trys that online to see our scores not only the top dang 10. GOD! Its like putting only a Top 10 leaderboard on COD4 or 5 games. you would piss a crap load of people off with that crap get it together HOME TEAM!

Keep up the hard work!

Havoc_Maker said:

Jack, thank you for bringing us this great news about Home! I would like to see dedicated game spaces for the following upcoming games in Home:
1) Killzone 2
2) Red Faction Guerilla
3) Dark Void
4) M.A.G.

February 10th, 7:11 pm

wish we had tv’s, to add killzone 2 trailers to them =D

BlackWaltzGDL said:

February 10th, 7:18 pm

It would be cool that if you get a platinum trophy, you get a costume of that same game in home.

Hope that happens.

HeavenlyScrewed said:

February 10th, 8:09 pm

can u you please make the movie theatre bigger w/ a lobby and multiple trailer rooms like it said on it’s description o and more arcades or just make the places larger so we don’t have too wait and add tv’s already plz ; ( think of sackboy.

Lil_Mermaid_Girl said:

More games need rewards for Home by doing stuff in the game, like unlocking trophies. That was mentioned along time ago (like say a platinum might give you a themed wallpaper of that game), and stuff like that. That and trophies should be worth virtual Home money (a very small amount, like 1 cent per bronze, that would be 1 Home dollar for every 100 bronze trophies.) Probably anything like that is a long way off though…

Dehshizknight said:

February 10th, 8:29 pm

Heck yes! This is one of the reasons why I like Home and why I’m in it all the time (aside from the fact that my disk drive is broke so I can’t play disk games right now :/).

Anyways, where is the rubber Ratchet suit!

hey i cant wait for the new stuff
great work so far

loki52 said:

I had an idea that I was wondering if you have thought of. For the clothes in home, what if you were to make a deal with clothing companies and sell representations(for your home avatar) of actual clothes for something just over what they retail for in store and then send the buyer the actual clothing item. That way you’re really shopping and your avatar really does dress as cool as you and vice versa. I would be more likely to spend an extra $2 on real clothes(avatar fee) than spend $2 on just clothes for the avatar.

The ninja outfits look good. Hopefully we can get pirate outfits too ^_^;

With all these game spaces coming out, is there a chance we’ll get a game space for RE5? Or even for the new Final Fantasy game that will coming out someday soon I hope?

EnigmaNemesis said:

February 10th, 11:05 pm

Awesome stuff! Keep up the good work.

I personally think the priced are too high for these goods, but to each is own.

Why do I get the irritating feeling that Game Launching is going to be even more piece mealed than Trophies.. or worse.. in-game music?

realmadpuppy said:

Gringo234 said:

February 11th, 4:35 am

Ninjas are the second ultimate badasses who have ever lived.

Alexander being the first, you guys should add some Alexander battle armor.

Nice progress for home,

Quick question. I found out on Joystiq and Kotaku, 24 companies are going to help support Home (http://kotaku.com/5149362/only-these-publishers-may-work-on-the-ps3s-home), Why is Square-Enix, Take-Two (Rockstar, 2K game), Midway, Atari, THQ, left out of the Playstation Home Support?? Please reply.

I’m glad i didn’t spend any more of my money today buying furniture for my homes.i think the ninja outfits are going to be super.
I’m also pre-ordering kZ2 off Amazon so i can get the Helghast uniform as well as the KZ2 solider uniform.

also had 2 questions. 1) are we going to get new expressions like ninja expressions and such when the ninja outfits come out?

2)when are we getting the TV’s or radios?
cause I’m dying to watch videos and listen to music off my hard drive.

so i had three ?’s sorry..lol

3)if its OK i think we should start getting more customization for our characters like more hair colors/styles,changing the color of the clothes we wear and etc.
or adding a better preview of what the clothes/furniture looks like before we buy it.

I’d like to celebrate new female clothing. Long overdue, long underrate, and long underappreciated.

Whenever it appears, that is. Hopefully sooner rather than over a few “months”. Thanks for keeping us informed and updated.


February 11th, 6:07 pm

new community-named Home hang-out space, the Gamer’s Lounge

^^^do this places exist or is it gonna be new

Rain84e said:

February 11th, 8:26 pm

tWeek651 said:

February 11th, 9:55 pm

nice adds, but it would be cool if u guys added some more games in the arcade section, @Home is a nice add to the Ps3, keep the good work up and this could be a real big hit for the playstation network an the Ps3.

Sekoku said:

Contest sounds stupid: Who’s the first to pay $.50 and hope to heaven that everyone else is stupid enough to pay $.50 and fill a server up AT RANDOM to get a free game.

Good job getting people that don’t see this as a cheap ploy to get people to buy clothes for what it is. Thanks, but I rather get Warhawk/Socom for free through other methods than random chance. If you’re doing quiz/question contests, I’ll be there. But count me out on paying for DLC and instance hope random luck.

I think the things sony is adding to home is cool but what about things like tvs, being able to change the color of your clothes b4 you buy them oh and maybe a few new dances (my legs hurt from doing the running man )lol.

P.S. Keep up the good work sony looking good!!!!

Home lacks 1 very important thing! the Caesar Cut! sure theres like 2 buzz cuts that get close but look too short and u can even see ur avatars scalp! maybe instead of having to chose from preset hair we can customize our avatar´s hair much like we do with the face!
