- Today PlayStation Home Online Community Specialist Locust_Star
has announced news of a new Red Bull space and event, Fight Night Producer chat and more heading to PlayStation Home this week.
To quote: Mark your calendars - this Thursday, November 26th, the next phase of the wildly popular Red Bull
Island will be released in PlayStation Home. To complement the existing Red Bull Air Race World Championship
mini-game, Red Bull will unleash two brand new spaces that will appeal to sports fans and beach bunnies alike.
The first, an exhibition of action and adventure sports photographs from Red Bull Illume
. The winning photograph from each of the competition's ten categories is displayed on large illuminate cubes, imitating the real-life exhibit.
The second is a Red Bull Flugtag
mini-game where users can compete against one another by launching one of five wild flying machines off of a 30-foot high deck in hopes of achieving flight. Think: The Wright Brothers... or that time you and your genius buddies decided to pile into your wagon and take a ride off the roof.
He who flies the farthest wins the high spot on the space's leaderboard. And he that visits these new spaces (and the Theater) to learn more about the art of Red Bull Flugtag during opening week may just win a PSPgo or Rock Band PSP3000 bundle. Want to learn more? Sure you do!
Starting Monday, November 30th at 6:00pm PT (9:00pm EST), behind the scenes videos of the real-life Red Bull Flugtag events will be placed in the PlayStation Home 10-Screen Theater, along with various trivia questions.
The first 5 users that email [email protected]
with the correct answers will win the aforementioned PSPgo or Rock Band PSP3000 bundles. Check out the official rules and regulations linked above for more details.
The Red Bull Flugtag event isn't the only event going on in PlayStation Home this Thanksgiving week (and no, we're not talking about chasing turkeys around Central Plaza - that would be preposterous!) EA SPORTS Fight Night Round 4
producers Mike Mahar
and Brian Hayes
will be in-world this Wednesday, November 25th, between the hours of 4:00pm and 5:00pm PT (7:00pm and 8:00pm EST), for a live chat with you, the PlayStation Home community.
The focus of this chat will be on the next title update and all-new Fight Night downloadable content, to be released this December. Rabid boxing fans will not want to miss out on this unique opportunity to get the scoop from the men behind one of the biggest boxing titles of all time.
Mahar and Hayes will be in one instance of the EA SPORTS Club Fight Night game space, so be sure to add the host PSN ID that will be announced in Wednesday's Message of the Day if you want to participate. At the time of the event, simply use the "Go To" feature to travel to the event instance (you can find the "Go To" option in your Menu Pad; simply select the Friends List and the name of the host account).
We have a real treat in store for all of you music fans. Come Thursday, vignettes from Kyocera's All Access documentary
of the Virgin Mobile Freefest
will be airing in the PlayStation Home 10-Screen Theater.
This behind-the-scenes rock documentary was created by 14 high school and college students and features exclusive footage of some of the hottest acts of our time including Weezer, Franz Ferdinand, Public Enemy, Blink-182, Taking Back Sunday and more! Come backstage and witness how one of the summer's most anticipated concert events came to be.
Last, but certainly not least, those full Ezio costumes that you all have been chomping at the bit for will appear in the PlayStation Home Mall this week. Be sure to pick these costumes up and show the world how much of an Assassin's Creed fanboy/fangirl you are.
