Xi – dare you step inside?

Locust_Star's Avatar Posted by PlayStation Home Community Manager

Xi, the adventure based in PlayStation Home, took another step into the real world this week as a select group of players met with characters face-to-face – in a limousine.

The meetings were ‘recruitment interviews’ to join Veilcorp, a mysterious corporation whose motives have always been unclear.

But now their aims are becoming clearer. All of the candidates in both New York and Los Angeles were given a pen during their interview. Each pen contained a USB stick hiding passwords to a restricted area of the Veilcorp website. And it looks like Veilcorp has had plenty of reasons to keep their dirty business secret…
To find out more, switch on your PS3, download Home, and look for the Xi graffiti in the main square. The recap video in the Hub will help you catch up with the action.

Meanwhile, check out the video of some of the candidates in New York. (We’re not sure if these two guys were candidates as well or just big fans of Veilcorp.)

How about fixing the problems that are in Home first, then start up with Xi again.

SingStar reward items would be nice. Oh, and how about visiting the Home Support forum as well. It was created for a reason, right?

“How about fixing the problems that are in Home first, then start up with Xi again.”

The Xi people have nothing to do with the rest of Home dimwit.

I had done a lot of Xi, then I formatted my harddrive and lost all of it. Any way to make a save file so I don’t have to do it all again?

Having to reread the text game thing is going to be hard on the eyes :(

Xi is made by nDreams. Not Sony.

Ftwrthtx, go away. No one wants to hear yet another clueless and whiny little punk crying like a retard in forums.

“clueless and whiny little punk crying like a retard in forums.”

Talk about a whiny little punk. What are you, 7 years old?

How about learning what the hell is going on here, and then posting; let’s try that.

Xi is being done by nDreams, smart one. Has nothing to do with the actual Home dev teams.

XI is great! You people must of been in the trailers in jr high and high school. See you at the E3 meet-up !

Nobody cares about this XI veilcorp virtual garbage, that post is just wasting space on the psblog. The only reason 99.9% of us go into XI is for the mini games, and nothing else. Since the introduction of those factions, the XI plot has turned ridiculously pathetic. I am glad E3 is nearly over so we’ll finally find out the truth on June2.

nice :D

RaymondBel said:

I wonder what will happen to all those spaces once this Xi advanture is all over… will they be deleted?

I agree that since they introduced those two factions where people had to make a choice, lots of people refused to take sides. This was not a good move. Or was it a way to see how people would react given the real life choice? Is this an underground social experiment?

May 22nd, 4:39 pm

@30 Sometimes I have to walk to the right or left to actually enter the Hub. Face on to the symbol doesn’t always work for me.

XI is really awesome, HOME is really coming into it’s own i’d say i log in about once a week now, it just needs a few more features (streaming video), smoother transitions(load times entering and exiting places as well as signing in), and it needs to be a little more stable. Basically it just needs to shake it’s “betaness” and it would be great.

I took the test for Veilcorp and passed and declared my allegiance via email on Xi but I haven’t heard back from them yet. But then again I haven’t been on Xi for a while so I guess I’ll check it out.

I was late to the Xi band wagon and I got pulled in right away. But, I moved (which took a month) and then once my PS3 was setup, the BR Drive died ( oddly enough my 360 HD tanked too).

So here is hoping I will have enough time to get into home and finish Xi before it ends.

I’m tired of people treating this blog like an order form of stuff they want from the PS3. If all you’re gonna do is whine, then dont post at all. Seriously, it’s ridiculous. Everytime there is a post on blog, especially if it’s the notification of a firmware update, people start listing off what they want in a condescending matter.

This stuff costs money and time to create. How about not complaining about stuff that is FREE and OPTIONAL. You aint paying for it, dont use it if you’re so annoyed by it.

BalramRules said:

WOW! I don’t even know what this is, but I’m still excited because I have every Fragment and Butterfly so far and every game I have bought which has trophies has a platinum one and I have platinumed EVERY SINGLE GAME I OWN AND 100 Percented it : )
You don’t need to get EVERY Trophy to earn platinum (mostly/only for add-ons).

MobileTone said:

so Sony is actively encouraging people to go to strange locations and meet people they met over the internet who they don’t know in real life and get into cars with blacked out windows with them?

very bl00dy sensible.

Is_over_9000 said:

May 24th, 11:36 pm

please fix home first. It crashes and freezes my ps3 at least twice a day. I’m sick and tired of rebooting just because of a stupid update that home didn’t need. Xi can wait.

Salem13 said:

May 25th, 1:34 am

So I feel kind of stupid that I have no idea what this is. Guess I will just have to look into it.

EU, US, JP HOME.. i find it so boring to be honest HOME has nothing to do with the ps3 when using the xmb your character that you build within HOME has nothing to do with yr PSN gamercard.
