announced today news that PSP Patapons are set to invade both retail as well as Sony's PlayStation Home online community.
To quote: It's a beautiful Cinco de Pata-yo
and as we speak, thousands of magical keys (read: PSN vouchers) are heading towards a destination near you...ready to unlock the internet's mighty download powers, filling your PSP with Patapon bliss.
In addition to these vouchers hitting the store shelves, on Thursday, May 7th, you will all be able to download Patapon 2 from the PlayStation Network and the Patapon 2 mass consumption can begin.
But that's not the only thing happening on May 7th.
We also wanted to announce really exciting Home exclusives (two actually). First: yours truly will be featured in the Home Theater, answering a few of questions posted in the forums by the Home Community.
Second: We've decided that this Thursday is also Home avatar makeover day...so we are giving you an exclusive Patapon 2 t-shirt (for boys and girls!). It's definitely time for you to upgrade your Home look with something more Eyeballish and warrior like.
Now, be honest... wouldn't you want to dress up your Home avatar with these fine threads? If so, be sure to head to the Home Mall since they will be flying off those virtual shelves.
You know you will look good... in fact, tell us which shirt you think is the best. Maybe we'll make an actual real-life
one. Just hop on over to the official PlayStation Home forums to start-a-votin' and get-a-wearin' or just let us know on the comments.
So what else is there to do on these two days between Cinco de Pata-yo and Thursday-download-o day-o? Well, you can hop on over to the Patapon 2 Web site
to download or make your own custom wallpaper.
Of you could just try your luck at winning
a Limited Edition Lilac Purple PSP (to go with the stylish Patapon 2 logo), or some Patapon 2 toys, or a big screen tv.
There you have it folks! Happy Cinco de Pata-yo!
