Who is Veilcorp?

CydoniaX's Avatar Posted by PlayStation Home Community Manager

Xi, the ARG based in PlayStation Home, has taken a sinister turn with the emergence of an unknown organisation called Veilcorp.

Veilcorp screenshot Xi

Veilcorp claims that ‘Xi’ – whatever it is – belongs to them, and anyone hunting for it is in violation of Veilcorp’s rights.

What’s more, they’re recruiting. Anyone in the US is invited to apply for an interview through the Veilcorp website. Are they for real? In this story, it’s hard to tell…

Eh, I’m really not prepared for a legal battle. Still, thanks for the update. :)

I need to check out this Xi thing. I haven’t logged into Home since the Beta, but stuff like this and some spaces for games I’m interested in makes me want to. Not enough time in the day. :(

I doubt that this is an actual legal battle Jeigh!!!

sounds like fun though… I’m checking their site to learn more

Socom and Warhawk VOUCHERS PLEASE….still waiting….

This is bull, I checked out the site and took the test, it stated that I was a “Team Player”
after reading the terms and agreement, all you get is a limo ride around LA or NY (all paid at your own expense) for 20 mins. that’s it…

Oh yea… if you live anywhere else, its pretty much poitless for you to even take the quiz.

screw this…

@12….

You will also be included within the Xi game through video interview…pretty cool stuff for FANS of Xi in NY or LA.

Too bad I can’t participate but truly imaginative stuff for the PSN / HOME.

Jess?

I work and have too much of a life for actual video games lately, let alone this. I need a day just for Xi lol.

tomsau said:

May 4th, 7:22 am

you all think they’re kidding, that this is a part of the game…
And in a few weeks time you’ll all be getting sued
its part of their plan
=O

So though this is not a job application, seems that either this particular thing, (Or maybe Xi all together) will only benefit US residence? Cause I looked into the official rules a bit (didn’t want to read any spoilers) and it seems that it is only for US residence.

As a Canadian, I can understand … but I’ve been understanding this kind of stuff for years! Since Home is an international service, can’t anything be done? I’m getting tired and frustrated from all this “understanding”. Either way, I hope I’m just guessing wrong.

I haven’t been following Xi, but after snooping around that page, taking the aptitude test, and being denied log-in, I don’t think I will bother. Gotta say it- that was pretty lame and a total waste of time.

usjvc said:

May 4th, 7:32 am

Who should i join? Veilcorp or Genesis? Or none?

KSPRAYDAD said:

May 4th, 7:36 am

@16…

There have been many parts of Xi that were EU focused…I’m sure at some point there will be a similar fanservice contest for the EU/JPN servers.

Insyt said:

May 4th, 7:40 am

I took the quiz deal, said i was an “Executive” haha, oh well cant participate no where near LA or NY…sucks oh well…

LOL, “Veilcorp”??? That’s about as subtle as “Darth Sidious”

Reigncloud777 said:

May 4th, 7:49 am

Running short on imagination?? Home has so much potential too, it’s a shame.

Midgetguy said:

Creepy… to say the least! :D

Can’t watch video untill I get home (at work and they block me from every thing). Work sucks. But I’m glad to see home getting bigger Although I don’t seem to go there that offten.To many good games I guess and there is that hole EA thing I really don’t care for. EA and card games doesn’t sound right.Gotta go LUNCH!!!

ProfessorMurder said:

May 4th, 7:56 am

Will Veilcorp bring us PSOne games?

If not, I don’t care.

Zookey said:

May 4th, 7:58 am

FYI I wasn’t allowed to finish the aptitude test–it asks me for a name and password I don’t know–I tried entering my PSN id info and it didn’t work–same thing happened when they initially put up the Ratchet and Clank site (although that one doesn’t do it anymore)

Please fix.

Reigncloud777 said:

There ya go,that’s how you get people to go in Home more…downloadable psone game store in the Home Mall…brilliant?!? I think so..

Ftwrthtx said:

May 4th, 8:02 am

I wonder how this will play into the game

@Cyd Any updates on our SingStar items?

Jon_Mclane said:

May 4th, 8:13 am

I wish you would have told me this was only in LA and NY before I took the time to fill it out

mixedkidbx said:

May 4th, 8:15 am

i took the test and was able to be accepted. after reading the official rules and finding out the only thing you “win” is an $80 limo ride to do some fake intereview, i passed.

D1balla said:

May 4th, 8:25 am

Spoiler alert if you go through the “aptitude test” there is a disclaimer that tells you that it is a spoiler for the Xi game. Just if anyone was still unsure like me.

Patchex said:

It brought tears to my eyes, Good job, who ever made that video… I can not wait to see what it is…love clues

@21

Hey! Darth Sidious was just seriously misunderstood, and poorly represented in the movies! It’s all Jedi-propoganda! :P

jipmg said:

idk?

You guys at SONY can just buy them and then kill them off, its not liek they pose a threat to sony

Elsa said:

May 4th, 10:14 am

veilcorp… my guess is that this might be the company hiring PMCs for MAG?

drdre74 said:

May 4th, 10:23 am

Is it me or is Home starting to turn into Lost with all the underground bases and mystery people looking for Xi and claiming it belongs to them? Hmmm but without the island lol!

GoldenGotGame said:

May 4th, 10:34 am

Off topic, but I’m one of the people who bought the male du-rag in the mall, but had it show up for female. I saw the note saying to contact Consumer Services, but how do I contact them? Thanks in advance.

That video looks really bad. Sony should either allocate a better budget for this sort of viral “promos” or keep them simple.

Trying to make a Minority Report GUI while being cheap or poorly choosing the companies or freelancers that do the post on this things is just bad.

Xi is great !!!! Thank You !!!

Time would have been better spent adding some background music and sounds so that Home doesn’t seem so bland and sterile. Would be curious to know the actual numbers of users of Home in any given week. Of the people on my friends list I haven’t seen one on there in months.

Background noise: Hum to yourself?
