has announced today that virtual AlphabeTees are hitting PlayStation Home this Thursday alongside the best of the PlayStation Home Community.
To quote: Last week we offered you a preview of a brand new game known as AlphabeTees - a social trivia game exclusive to PlayStation Home.
The reaction from the community was, to say the least, incredibly positive. Your overwhelming enthusiasm is the reason why it brings us such pleasure to announce that AlphabeTees will be releasing this Thursday into the wide world of PlayStation Home.
AlphabeTees takes the standard trivia game to a whole new level. Think: Scrabble (or a crossword puzzle) that requires teamwork, with you and your friends using clothing to answer VeeMee's trivia questions. Here's a quick overview of the AlphabeTees game play:
• Buy the AlphabeTees Game Pack from Central Plaza (or Threads in the PlayStation Home Mall).
• Look out for questions on the Central Plaza Jumbotron screen.
• Find friends who own the AlphabeTees game pack.
• Solve the question by lining up with your friends and spelling out the answer using the AlphabeTees shirts.
• Take a photo of you and your friends spelling out the answer using your PlayStation Home camera.
• Upload your photo at the AlphabeTees game point in Central Plaza (simply go to the AlphabeTees kiosk, open the browser, and upload your photo!).
• Keep your eyes on the Central Plaza Jumbotron, where the winning photos will be displayed the day after the question has been posted.
To get everyone started, VeeMee
will be giving away a sample pack of 5 letters from the AlphabeTees game pack to all members of the PlayStation Home community. Get yours this Thursday, August 26th from the AlphabeTees game point in Central Plaza.
We've been seeing a lot of people turning into crime-fighting guardians of the community (and even a few nefarious archnemeses) ever since we released the first round of our PlayStation Home Superheroes and Supervillains costume packs last week.
This week, we add some new characters into the mix - Captain Inflame-O, Sandman, and The Cyborg. Add these characters to your collection by visiting the Costumes store in the PlayStation Home Mall this week (while you are there, be sure to check the Sodium store for updates - a full list of content can be found under the Latest Update tab in your Menu Pad come Thursday morning).
My good buddy GlassWalls has put together a list of some of the top sites, enthusiast media, podcasts, and other assorted projects that come from our most hardcore and loyal community members. When you can't be in-world but need your PlayStation Home fix, we recommend you check out these offerings and support the efforts of your fellow community members.
