One of this year’s most anticipated games and eagerly awaited albums pair up in PlayStation Home this week for a special giveaway. Beginning tomorrow, Thursday, November 18th, visitors to PlayStation Home’s Central Plaza or Theater will be able to pick up an exclusive Gran Turismo 5 costume designed by the platinum-selling rock band, My Chemical Romance. The band’s single “Planetary (Go!)” from the upcoming Danger Days: The True Lives of the Fabulous Killjoys, is the main song in GT5’s opening cinematic sequence. This special racing suit will only be available for a limited time, so be sure to log in to PlayStation Home Thursday and pick yours up while you can!
Miles from civilization, hidden deep in a gorge that once housed a secret government facility, lies the long-lost Dam personal space, the perfect location for each and every aspiring arch nemesis that simply needs a proper hideout from which to formulate plans for world domination. Pick yours up Thursday from the Estates store in the PlayStation Home Mall and then commence becoming the evil overlord you always wished you could be (just don’t make the common N00B mistake of falling into the built-in piranha pool…)
In other news, the PlayStation Home Community Theater will air episode 5 of GamerIndepth’s “ShoutOuts” this Thursday. In the newest installment of this popular videocast, the GI staff sits down with Amped from the first season of the PlayStation Network original reality show “The Tester” to talk about the new season (and the new contestants). On that note, we’re pleased to announce that Episode 3 of “The Tester 2” is now live in PlayStation Home as well. So be sure to head to the PlayStation Home Theater this week to watch the newest episode of “The Tester” and pick up a limited edition t-shirt reward!
The PlayStation Home Mall gets an enormous update this week with standee furniture items appearing in the LOOT store from Top Cow’s famed Witchblade comic book series (including standees of The Magdalena, Sara Pezzini, and Danielle Baptiste), Dirk the Daring and Princess Daphne outfits from the classic Dragon’s Lair franchise, and new additions to the Sodium store.
In celebration of the impending holiday, we’re bringing the popular Turkey Chase game back to Central Plaza! To play, simply approach the giant stone turkey, proclaim your allegiance to the almighty Meleagris Gallopavo by stating “gobble gobble,” and then proceed to chase down legions of wily turkeys while unlocking some truly hilarious rewards. It’s not only ridiculous(ly fun), it’s the most festive way to pass the hours and days leading up to Thanksgiving. Check out this video for a sneak peek at what we have in store for you Thursday.
See you in Home!
