The world’s first console-based Alternate Reality Game starts today in PlayStation Home.

Called Xi , the adventure takes place in a series of secret areas in Home – and beyond – changing day by day, week by week, in real time. Anyone with a PLAYSTATION 3 can join in the fun for free.

To discover the mystery of Xi, simply log on to PlayStation Home and look for the graffiti on the wall in the main square. Find that, and all will be revealed….

  • time to finally find out what all the commotion is about!

  • Interesting. I’ll have to look into this.

  • I just read about this on the GAP forums, sounds interesting. Thanks for the heads up, I am gonna have to look into this.

  • looks abit like the animal logo…. but i guess ill check it out- IS THERE A PRIZE!?

  • Intriguing… This might actually get me into home.

  • XI is that Japanese?
    What does it mean?

  • I’m Confused??!?!

  • LongTallnUgly

    I know I’ll regret it but I guess I’ll have to redownload home and investigate this…later…maybe…

  • freakyzeeky

    Do I just run into it? :/

  • KazeEternal

    What the Hell Jeff are we not getting FF7 ACC with the FFXIII demo in June like the Japanese?!

  • DeforMAKulizer

    Cyd you and L_S rock! =D
    Will work on it immediately!
    Love having new Home stuff… And this Xi stuff makes me feel like sherlock holmes! =D

  • I don’t have enough time for present current reality, now alternate reality.
    I have to check this out!

  • KazeEternal

    BTW this sounds cool, keep it up and Home may actually be worth something.

    • CydoniaX

      This is just the beginning…seriously, if you haven\’t checked out Home in awhile, we are now busting out new content regularly. Xi is just a part of this, though an extremely cool part of it. Check it out!

  • ++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++
    When are we getting game launching abilities for every multiplayer game in the PS3 library? Why is it that the most basic of features for both the XMB and HOME get prioritized and delivered before all the extra stuff?

    1) XMB – Voice Chat across games
    2) XMB – Voice messaging(30 sec clip)
    3) HOME – Game Launching for all games

    Deliver what the fans want first and foremost then surprise us with all this Xi stuff.

    • CydoniaX

      All that stuff is still in development, game launching started with Warhawk and should be supported by all future game spaces now. It takes time, but we haven\’t forgotten about all the stuff that our users really want!

    • CydoniaX

      Guys, some clarification seems to be needed on my above comment, apologies for being misleading. I was talking about voice chat for Home in general being worked on, not specifically about voice chat across games or voice messaging on the XMB. I can see how my quick answer was taken as a confirmation on all 3 items, but this is not the case.

  • ok i have managed to find the first two pieces of the first puzzle , does anybody know wheres the last one???


    Looks interesting I might check it out and log into HOME… It’s been some time…


  • Can’t wait till I get Home and check this out, only 3 1/2 hours to go

  • What on earth is an alternate reality game?

    I’m so very confused…

  • i will have to check this out when i get home

  • I hope this is as good as the LOST alternate reality games!

    If anyone hasn’t participated in ARG’s, you might be disappointed. But to those of us who have, let the games begin!

  • Home is pretty uselss…I’ll pass

  • I will ty it today.
    Looks fun

  • >> The world’s first console-based Alternate Reality Game starts today in PlayStation Home.

    Bleh, ARG’s are lame. More Gamespaces.

  • I’m intrigued. :)

  • More stuff like this will keep me logging into HOME. Make it fun tough.

  • SirFleetALot

    Very intriguing. I will check it out!

  • FINALLY some REAL events planned for Home…I will be checking this out as soon as I get home.

  • i stopped using home because it always has to load at the start up and it takes a long time, it also has to load every time i switch places, i cant take it, it takes tooo long, why? why not install the whole thing instead of dl all the time?

  • Thunderstorm025

    I would love to have a look at this, but sadly i am not old enough to access home…

  • This does sound interesting. I hope it is good!

  • Sounds cool. I’ll give it a chance.

    and for all those asking:

  • jayrockslife

    Hmm.. is this a ploy to get more people to use Home? I haven’t been on it in a while. Too busy gaming.

  • I finished all today’s missions (‘expeditions’).
    I’m having a lot of fun.

    Thumbs up to the developers.

    Very well executed.

  • It’s pretty interesting.

  • I was curious about what an ARG is and found this:
    Good reading!

  • HOME really needs some fresh things.

  • Thanks for the post Cyd. So have you had any time for donuts today?

  • Sounds interesting – like Lost in Home.

  • Awesome!

  • OOOOOOhhh kay! You guys really need to figure out which direction PS Home is going. Whatever happened to the trophy room?

  • I’ll check it out. I haven’t enjoyed home yet but maybe this will help.

  • Home is the Developers Graveyard.

  • StalkingSilence

    so weird

  • Very intriguing. I’m liking it :)

  • Looks like I’ll be going into Home today.

  • Interesting, and fairly fun. My connection was laggy today, and I got kicked out of the hub a bunch. But overall, decent.

  • Sounds really interesting, I’ll have to check it out. I haven’t been in Home in forever.
