Red Xbox 360 Resident Evil Limited Edition Console Official
Remember that Resident Evil 5 Red Xbox 360 bundle that was rumored awhile ago? Well, it looks like ArsTechnica’s source came through once again. Capcom and Microsoft announced the new bundle earlier today and the specifications for it were pretty damn accurate as well:
Two important announcements emerged from Games Developer Conference 2007, LittleBigPlanet and PlayStation Home. LittleBigPlanet arrived earlier this quarter and with the PlayStation Home service finally open to the general populous, I was finally able to explore this PlayStation branded virtual space. What I found was a mess void of feeling, function and most importantly, fun. As is, PlayStation Home looks to be a colossal waste of everybody’s time.
It’s news time, children. After quite a significant of time of waiting, Sony’s PlayStation Home will finally open its doors to the public tomorrow. I know some of you may already be poo-pooing this already, but I see this as a worthwhile experiment and look forward to trying this online community gimmick out.
For more info, I suggest reading this rather long spiel on what Home has to offer:
I’ve been wanting to try this PlayStation Home thing since its announcement way back when Phil Harrison was top cat at Sony Worldwide Studios. While the service has been delayed numerous times, my level of interest with it has not waned.
I’m interested. I want to try it out. If I don’t like, that’s fine.
Well, it looks like my opportunity to apply is coming up! All I have to do is download the “Home” theme off the PSN Store tonight. The theme (which is free, of course) should appear around the usual PSN Store update time, which is around 6 – 7 PM EST.
Home was announced a while ago, but it was met with its fair share of delays. Unsurprisingly, today Sony announced they’re delaying Home again til Fall 2008. I’m not worried, this is just icing on Sony’s online service. In-game XMB is coming later this year and that is significantly more important.
In addition, Sony is apparently in talks with movie studios over a PSN movie distribution service. Neat. Hopefully, it’s not just a rental service either.
Kotaku wrote up three pieces in relation to what Sony is bringing to Home with regards its own published games. Uncharted, Warhawk and Resistance will all have Home spaces ranging from game themed spaces to minigames.
I’m most excited for the Uncharted 2-D sidescroller game. It has potential. I think…
