Sony Home community manager TedtheDog has put out a list of things to expect from the app in the coming months.
You’ll have to get it from CVG. There’s no link to the original post through there.
This week, users will get fixes to game-launching issues with patch 1.1, two free male and female Watchmen outfits and some Home avatar clothing.

Deadline’s confirmed that Faith and a .45 development has come to a screeching halt.
Cessation of work on the game was rumored last week.
Blame it on the upcoming Watchmen: The End is Nigh, slated for a March 6 release along with the film, according to developer boss CEO Chris Mottes.
“During the past year our team has been fully occupied with the development of Watchmen: The End is Nigh,” he said.
“We are proud to work on such a high quality online product and excited by how well it has been received by the press already,” said Mottes.
Mottes said that while development of the Great Depression era game was indeed stalled, work does continue on a ”negotiation level”.
Full thing on Eurogamer.

The mag’s out to subs now, so expect scans soon. It contains 20 screens and interviews with the Warner devs, so should be well worth a look.
We’ll give you the heads up when someone posts it.

Warner Bros just put out a press release saying the episodic Watchmen game – announced last night – will take gamers places the comic and 2009 movie won’t go.
“The videogame based on Watchmen will go beyond the film and delve into the characters, rivalries and challenges in a mature action-brawler,” said the firm in a press release. “The game provides gamers with visceral superhero combat as urban vigilantes Rorschach and Nite Owl.”
Watchmen’s first episode will release with the movie next March, with the second part hitting with the DVD later in the year.
Full thing after the break.

Watchmen (the game) dials back the years to when the game’s dual playable characters, Rorschach and Nite Owl, are younger, trimmer, more physically fit versions of their older graphic-novel counterparts. In the demo we saw behind closed doors at E3, both Rorschach and Nite Owl were playable, either as a single-player game with an A.I. partner (whichever character you’re not playing is controlled by the CPU) or as a co-op splitscreen venture. Since the game takes place before superheroes were outlawed in the graphic novel’s timeline, it allows both characters to do what they do best – fight crime.
