Last 28th of March, I decided to visit my avatar in PlayStation® Home, to check for new updates such as game spaces, new rewards and some other changes in PlayStation® Home (Asian/Hong Kong server). I used my primary asian account (ID: kenokenopi) and then proceeded to Harbour Studio (my own space).
So far, there are quite new rewards I owned. First, I’ve got a special KillZone 3 T-shirt and equipped it right away to my avatar. Also, there’s that fancy bottoms. Not sure what game it appeared, maybe TEKKEN? And some more goodies from LittleBigPlanet. Oh, and they’re completely a free reward.
I also decided to visit and create my avatar for PlayStation® Home (US server) using my US account (ID: kenokenopi_US). Unfortunately, it was offline at that moment. Maybe the US server is updating or something.

I’ve been to the PlayStation Home location for LittleBigPlanet, and I admit, the area’s so fun. Tons of mini-games and the environment is just so lively, just like how you would expect since it is LBP. There is a game there where you will snap 5 various photos hidden somewhere in the area. And another thing is a mini-game where you can create your own personalized LBP wallpaper.
It is true that you can personalize the wallie in your own self but it is however limited. You are given 5 backgrounds and tons of stickers which will generally make it more stylized and unique. Stickers can be moved, rotated or enlarged. Isn’t;’t it cool? Create your own now! Just visit LittleBigPlanet’s place in PlayStation Home!

So here’s the continuation of my adventure, exploring some cool locations in the world of PlayStation Home. You’re now here, don’t go back, go only if you want to read the other post again.
My next destination is…. dadadadaaaaaaaaaaaaaaa… The Abandoned Docks of Empire City, a location of the successful game by Sucker Punch, inFamous. inFamous is one of my favorite game in the PS3. Here in the docks, you’ll see a very dirty street of the New York-looking city called Empire City.
If you look at it at first, you’ll definitely think that there’s nothing to do here but only sightseeing. There’s a very huge theater-like video screen in a form of a billboard in the center of the location. Actually, I did not managed to take a shot of it, and even if I did, the video content is nowhere to be seen. I took some avatar-posing pics instead:
I forgot to turn on the flash of the camera, so what you see above is a bit darker. Here’s a funny story. While wandering, I saw this inFamous phone you can interact with. I pressed the telephone number in my house, and it’s busy. I jokingly asked my sis, “is the phone downstairs hunged up?”, “it’s not working sis” while she’s looking at my screen. Immediately, she checked it out and told me it’s working. LOL. The telephone booth is actually used to call and speak to your PSN friends.
Another pose with a train in an inFamous logo on it:
And an inFamous vending machine:
Now let’s move on to the interesting matter in the location. Actually, there’s a minigame here called Reaper Shock.
For your information, Reaper is the name of the enemies with electric powers in inFamous. The mechanics of the game is to kill them by shooting electric bolts at them while maintaining your electric powers. Once you’re out of electric powers, it’s a game over. You’ll see your score and again in the scoreboards.
Actually, I only played once and reached Round 17. Then my powers are all gone so, it’s a game over for me.
I managed to score up to 86182. I checked out the scoreboards and…
Too bad, i’m so far away in the list. After that, I moved on to the next and final destination of my PlayStation Home Adventure. The next destination is:
It’s a visit to one of Uncharted: Drake’s Fortune locations. This time, we’re here at Sullivan’s Bar.
What you can see here are mostly, photo frames of Nathan, and the rest of the cast of the first game, plus some cool replica of the artifacts seen in the game.
Honestly, there’s not much here, so I only took photos. There’s another room in the upper floor of the area called Artifacts Room.
Inside the Artifacts Room:
I noticed the area were very visually-detailed, much better than how The Sims 3 look like when you’re playing in on your PC.
Here’s a collection of photo frames of the cast of the game hanging in the walls of the stairs:
Anyway, I’m planning to go to that location once I have the time again. See you in the next adventure!! ^^

So I hooked up my PS3 on the internet this monday to check out for new patches, fix, and some cool new demos. Actually, I grabbed the ModNation Racers Demo from the PSN. I loved it. Much like how I loved LittleBigPlanet. You can do co-op game in a split screen system, create, edit, and share your custom made tracks, cars and avatar. Unfortunately, you won’t be able to share in this Demo version, atleast the custom track you made. I made one and and it’s kinda funny-lookin’. I’ll let you take a look at it, here it goes:
Too bad I forgot to take a shot of the gameplay, in my phonecam atleast. Aside from ModNation, I also grabbed Mushroom Wars. I haven’t tried playing it yet but i’m sure it’s another fun PSN game.
Anyway, after doing the PSN demo downloads, the patch for the Prince of Persia and grabbing the exclusive Assassin’s Creed Altair costume for Prince of Persia, there’s nowhere to go but, PlayStation Home. Apparently, there’s a 40-something-megabyte worth of patch waited for me. Hmm… interesting…
Upon my visit, I realize my avatar doesn’t look like myself anymore, sporting the fauxhawk hair. So, I decided to modify it and choose the longer one, kinda similar to mine. Upon my access to it, I notice the menu are rearranged, and I like it more. Maybe that’s what the patch did. When you press the Start button off from you DualShock 3, you’ve got 3 choices there: Navigator – to access PS Home locations and events, Options – to tweak the in-game settings and, Wardrobe – if you want to pimp your character.
I wandered around my room (Harbour Studio) and checked out my furniture. I noticed something. Where the heck are the Tekken 6 arcade cabinets??? Oh well, must’ve be removed from the catalog.
After sight seeing at my room, checking out my items, I took out the Navigator so I can move to another location. Here’s a phonecam shot of my first destination:
So it’s the Resident Evil 5 Studio Lot, and honestly, I feel so excited coz’ you can actually wander around the location of the first chapter seen in the game. This is where the African guys are beating someone, poor guy. And here you’ll see the guy where you borrowed the guns.
Here you see the guy who gave Sheva and Chris some weaponry. You can do some mission / mini game here. Actually you are not allowed to take some photos inside The Archives, and since the guy said, it’s a confidential data LOL. I also forgot to take some phone cam shot, atleast. Honestly, what you’ll see inside are just a collection of Resident Evil 5-related info, such as character profiles, locations, events in the game.
Wait a sec, my avatar is getting homesick, tired. He’s having foot cramps. Let him rest first, and take your eyes a rest too, before continuing to the next part of the adventure. The next part is my visit to the other PlayStation Home locations.

After PLAT-ing three games (Dante’s Inferno, Tekken 6, Resident Evil 5) consecutively in a week of October, I decided to visit PlayStation Home and check out if there are some new things going on there. Of course, I cannot forget my new items in my wardrobe, thanks to the games I have PLAT-ed. Upon my visit, I tried rearranging my studio to give visitors a new look.
So far, I have acquired these Tekken 6 Arcade Cabinets:
These Resident Evil 5 action figures (with Galaga mascot):
Resident Evil 5 treasure Chest:
Some Tekken 6 Health Bottle:
Those Namco Museum Cabinet you can see out there:
I feel so happy that my own studio looked very pleasing now, as compared before. I even changed the wallpaper and re-arranged the couches and sofas, but next time, I hope Sony will add more and more items and options. Nevertheless, I praise Sony for doing something like this. Take a closer look at it:
And we shouldn’t forget daydreaming in the PlayStation Home world ^^
I never tried going out of my own studio cause I am doing something regarding PSN and my older brother’s Facebook. Anyway, my visit in my PlayStation Home character feels like a vacation just before my birthday. For now, I have to wait for another game to buy. While waiting, I should finish Fatal Frame 4 on my PC (emulated using Dolphin) and the reboot of Medal of Honor. I also can’t wait for Joe’s Adventures. XOXO
