Killzone 3 transforms PlayStation Home

I don’t have any statistics to back this up, but I’d imagine that the Killzone 3 fanbase and those who regularly utilise the social space PlayStation Home are not hugely overlapping demographics. But maybe that will change now that the Central Plaza has been turned into a Killzone themed FPS.

Sadly, the change is not permanent and you won’t be able to respond to nagging friend requests with a BFG.

The US PS Blog reports that Home is to be made-over on January 27 into “Central Plaza defender”, a three-level FPS against the Helghast.

Completing challenges earns Home bonuses, while finishing all levels grants you unlock points for an instant boost in Killzone 3′s multiplayer.

Another feature of the makeover is an Amazon-enabled pre-order booth, where signing your name on the dotted line earns you some exclusive gear: a Killzone 3 jetpack for your HOME avatar; the Unlock and Load Pack, instant access to three Unlock Points to use on the weapon or ability of your choice in Killzone 3 multiplayer; and the Retro Map Pack, featuring two of the most popular maps from Killzone 2.

    Nice try Sony, but I will not waste my time in Home.

    Well, some people might not see the point of Home, but just as many do. Sony have spent time and money improving the thing for its users, so props to them.

    Would still like to see that long awaited Trophy room, though.

    I was into it in Christmas, going to Santa Claus and doing his chores, to get rewards to put in one of my Home Spaces I bought.

    Hope this is available in Europe too.
    Might get back into Home just for this :)
