Sony details PlayStation Home updates
Resident Evil 5 Photo Studio on the way.
Sony Computer Entertainment shared details today on the next set of major updates for the PlayStation Home virtual world service. The service will see an update today, to be followed by another one next week.
Today's update adds a lounge for Irem's PS3 download title Minna de Spelunker. Visitors to this lounge will be able to access a special statue in order to kick off a multiplayer play session.
The next update, set for the 26th, appears to be far more substantial. The main piece of content for this day is an updated Resident Evil 5 Photo Studio. Users will have access to a mini game which will be playable simultaneously by multiple players, with Home Rewards being on the line.
New items are on the way on the 26th as well. Inside the RE5 Photo Studio, users will find a special shop called Adam's Shop. This shop will sell costumes from RE5's main characters Chris and Sheva. This will be the first time Home has offered in-lounge shops.
Street Fighter IV fans will be able to purchase items for the fighter using the more standard Home channels. Items themed around E. Honda, Zangeif, Dhalsim, and Blanka, will be available on the 26th.
Those who want some free goodies should enter Home today. Sony will be offering Home Rewards themed around Resistance and Gomibako to those who respond to a survey.
