PlayStation Home gets 2 new spaces and a upgraded movie theater


The US movie theater has just been one screen since the open Beta. Now it’s being expanded to 10 movie screens and a lobby. Some of the screening rooms may be giving stuff away too. Sony said that you might be able to watch full-length TV shows or movies in the screening rooms in the future.

Others updates is a Burn Zombie Burn space. Which has a zombie maze with exclusive prizes, and movies. Then MotorStorm Pacific Rift will get Game Launching. They are working a Space for MotorStorm as well. Here is a sneak peak.


Next (and this is very exciting) as of tomorrow, we will be launching a new event in PlayStation Home – the Fat Princess “Quest for Cake.” Based upon the brilliant PSN title which launches today, all you have to do is click on the PlayStation Events Space chip on your World Map to join in this very special confectionary quest.

You have to find 8 pieces of cake in the Home Space to feed the princess to get your reward, a Fat Princess Throne. Good updates Sony, keep them coming.

The Curtain Rises on the 10-Screen Movie Theater in PlayStation Home, MotorStorm Game Launching Crashes In, and Fat Princess Needs Cake!

Motorstorm 2 debuts with teaser


MotorStorm for PS3MotorStorm 2 will start its engines on a tropical island this Christmas. This time around you’ll be able to enjoy offline multiplayer on the PlayStation 3-exclusive race simulator through the up to 4-player split-screen mode, alongside online play for up to 16 players. Sony also confirmed that a new vehicle type, the Monster Truck, will be included in the sequel to the Motorstorm launch original. You’ll need those big tires to roll through mud, tangled vines and lava pools. Destructible environments seem to be in too.

The PS3’s chaotic racer heads to the jungle! Watch the CGI Motorstorm 2 teaser:

Motorstorm 2 will feature 4-player split-screen multiplayer and new lush island tracks


Motorstorm 2 racing to PS3Motorstorm 2, the sequel to the PS3 launch racing game, is coming this Christmas according to the BBC who saw the game in action at the Sony-owned Evolution Studios in the UK. It’s no surprise the game is getting a sequel this year, since it’s been in development for a while and Motorstorm has a PS3 bundle in nearly every region, upping sales to over 3 million copies worldwide!

Apparently the game is some months away from completion but the game’s engine looked rock solid and the graphics were as impressive as one would expect from one of the best-looking racing franchises. The action will move away
from the desert locale of the original. Gamers will be able to race around a lush island environment, full of interactive vegetation. To top it off the game will feature four-player split-screen action, righting one of the obvious failings of the first game.

MotorStorm sells 3 million copies for PS3. Developer wants to turn it into “massive brand”


Motorstorm for PS3Motorstorm has sold 3 million copies, making it one of the most successful PS3 games and one of the best selling “launch window” titles for the system (note that it’s a PS3 pack-in game in Europe where it also launched with the system).

Published by Sony and developed by Evolution Studios, the off-road racing game made waves because of it’s intense speed, beautiful nearly photo-realistic graphics and physics model that allowed the muddy tracks to literally be deformed as the racers kick up the mud and dirt, changing the face of the track.

MotorStorm developer Evolution Studios has said that it wants to “dominate reaction racing for a long time”.

Asked about the future of MotorStorm as part of a feature exploring the game’s first year of downloadable add-ons, gameplay producer Jed Ashworth said the question “goes way beyond downloadable content”.

We have the aim of turning our launch-window title into a sustained, massive brand,” he said. “We plan to dominate reaction racing for a long time. We’d never aim any lower.”

Ashworth declined to comment on plans for MotorStorm 2, but confirmed that the first game’s considerable support since launch wasn’t getting in the way of development.

“The picture some people have of us all working on MotorStorm Downloadable Content is somewhat off the mark,” he said. “We’re a multiple-project developer now.”

I wonder if that means other projects outside the Motorstorm series?

Here’s a MotorStorm video discussing Downloadable Content.
