SCEE's Playstation Home To Actually, You Know, Get Updated

Thank you SCEE community manager "Ted The Dog"

Which Ted The Dog fully intends to do:"[This involves getting] up to date on some of the older..

Fancy Some Digital T-Shirts Involving Patapon?

Something exciting always happens when we see Playstation Home clothes

At first we think they're real. And we let out a little yelp as we scour the page for a "Buy It Now" link; until we finally realise they are DIGITAL clothes for our DIGITAL character in Sony's DIGITAL world. Sigh. At least these Patapon 2 themed shirts do look kind of cool. No word on whether they'll be free or not,..

This year we're not sure what we can expect from Sony, but we presume there..
