PlayStation Home: New Minis Event in the Observatory and More!
SCEE's Home Community Lead Alex Weekes has posted up the European PlayStation Home update today, which includes a new Minis Event in the Observatory plus Star Wars and Indiana Jones.
To quote: We're bringing you a brand new minis experience this Thursday, with the latest PlayStation Home event. Make your way to the top level of the brand new "The Observatory" space, where you can challenge a friend to a duel of memory, wits and a little luck.
Enter into a minis duel, competing over a board consisting of a grid of glowing, face-down tiles. Flip the tiles over to reveal a variety of minis titles; reveal two matching tiles to score a point.
Sounds simple? The fun starts with random tiles hiding bonuses or traps, such as a tile that steals points from your opponent. You can even hide traps of your own, hoping to catch out your opponent. Beware, though: they may shuffle the board and your own trap could catch you out!
In true minis fashion this simple concept is fiendishly addictive, so don't forget to drag yourself away to explore the rest of The Observatory. The futuristic pool-like game FreezeBall returns exclusively to the minis event space.
Browse the latest minis titles, available for purchase and download for PS3 and PSP. Winners of the minis duel will be rewarded with a minis neon light for their personal space. This is an event not to be missed!
More of the very popular LucasArts content arrives this week! We've got more Star Wars, as well as a delightful selection of Indiana Jones costumes and furniture items. Kicking off the Star Wars list is the fantastic Obi-Wan costume, consisting of Tunic and Armour, Hair, Beard and Gloves (also available as a bundle).
For your personal space there will be three posters - Rex, Anakin, and Yoda - for your walls, along with three Clone Helmets on display stands. To top it all off there's a Homing Spider Droid prop and AT-ST statue!
Moving on to Indiana Jones, there's a veritable treasure trove of costumes and items coming tomorrow! There's the iconic Indiana Jones costume with Fedora, along with Young Indiana Jones.
You'll also find costumes for Mutt Williams, Dovchenko, Mola Ram and Henry Jones Sr. For your walls there's a framed Whip, while for fans of Raiders of the Lost Ark you'll find Staff of Rah, Ark of the Covenant, and Fertility Idol ornaments. Finishing the list is the Crystal Skull ornament.
Finally for this week, we're releasing a selection of clothing items for Assassin's Creed fans. This range includes t-shirts and caps and can be found in Threads, for both male and female.
