A few images leaked from the home Alpha zone 2 Looks like a game show to me what do you think ?
These look legit and they coincide with the flash of the yin-yang sign in an early trailer for Xi. Nice find.
I just laughed when I saw TedtheDog acting all incognitus trying to get info out of the guy. For those who don't know, he works for SCEE and is the one that talks to us on the Official EU PS forums. :shame:
now this is what im talking about home will become the next big thing with spaces like these also the new EA space rocks!!!!
The alpha area 1 has been fully unlocked now so it would make sense to open the new one. I'm expecting this to be open new week for everyone :)
if sony wanted to add 1vs 100 games they could easily do it on home
it's already been lined up for Buzz...
Personally I always nitpick on Home simply because it annoys me how many people in Home simply don't use it the right way. However, as a community for PS3 owners, I think it is a success.
I think it's great. I spent about 4 hrs on there once just talking to this guy about religion and a whole load of crazy stuff. That's what Home is about. It's not just playing mini games by yourself, it's about talking to people. The haters just don't use it wrong.
The biggest issue with Xi for me is the location, nobody really knows about it, sure if you read n4g you might, but so many of my fellow gamer friends(All my friends on the PS3) either didn't know about it, or just didn't know where to go to actually access it. I know it is supposed to be this whole incognito like space and it is pretty neat the way it is done, but how are people really supposed to know that some graffiti on a wall can be accessed, would like a proper doorway to Xi, just to get it out there as it is a fantastic space with some ripping mini-games and puzzles.
By talking to others players maybe ? i mean i was looking for the yellow paper friday , and i met another guy ..i told him i was doing a quest on Xi ... he asked me what Xi was ..i showed him the way to the entrance hub ... I mean isn't that the most obvious solution when you find people in the "man-hole " with no clue how to proceed next ?
Xi storyline so...no...not a game show. (Though they could easily add a Wheel of Fortune/Jeopardy (SONY properties) area to home but won't because idiots are paying $15 for those games instead)
Looks like another cyber cafe. Maybe with a movie streaming option?
At first i thought its something related to Killzone. But seriously what is it???
You'd know. Just to tell you anyway: its an "virtual adventure" campaign set within Home with its own areas.
but i have no time to play cause i must learn for my exams now. i was a month ago in PS-Home and i dont played Xi, so i dont know what it is. But as i read the Title "Playstation Home: Alphazone 2 images leaked" i thought it is related to Killzone or something like that. So what is Alphazone it is a Lounge, where you can Socialize or is it a Quest-Area????
Xi is hard to explain and really has to be experienced to know what it is all about. The easiest I could explain it would be, Xi is a virtual quest like adventure, it starts off by giving you a tutorial of the main space in Xi which has several 'pods' a bunch of computers set up, a robot, a couple of screens(One showing the daily updates in Xi, the other showing something I am yet to actually understand), and 3 portals(Alphazones), basically once you get through the tutorial you are sent off to decipher some puzzles that are done in a few ways, mainly using the computers that are set up in the Xi area, they connect to links that have faux sites that you can do your investigating on, some have videos, some have blogs, some are genuine sites too I think, but it all gives you info to solve the puzzles you are given. Now the Alphazones, the Alphazones are portal's that send you to another area of Xi that have a bunch of mini-games and challenges through them, the first Alphazone(Which is now fully functional) has several mini-games which include a bike game in which you use the SIXAXIS to control a motorbike on a moving plane situation and try and avoid trees and keep this helicopter in the middle of the screen, you can vs up to 3 other players while doing this too. Another section has a mini-game challenge, in which you have to complete 6 different mini-games within 5 minutes, there are 2 difficulties too. The last section involves a text-based adventure game, where simply put text scrolls on a screen and you choose where to go and what to do and the story unravels from there. That's about as best as I can explain it at the moment, hope it helps, but all I can say is to give it a go whenever you can and try it out for yourself.
Are you sure these are for home? They look like screens from the 1 VS 100 game that's coming out on Live. I could certainly be wrong though. If this is for HOME, it's a good look though.
Definitely HOME, you can tell by the portal, it's the exact same one in Xi.
"<MOD>Could all guest please join the forums as we will always bring you great news thanks" Nice try:/ Anyway...I'm down for this sh... But Sony seriously need to improve the damn PSN! You can't even try most of the games for trial like Flower or fl0w:/
JUST BUY THE GAMES! They are cheap enough and you will not be disappointed, I guarantee this 100%, both of those game are worth playing, take a look at my Flower demo for my impressions(In which I call it one of the Top 5 games I have EVER played). Basically you don't need a demo of either of those games, because they are worth a buy without a hands-on look. If you REALLY need to see what these games are about, check out the reviews, video reviews help too, you really don't need a demo of either though.
what the hell is xi??? XD
