PlayStation Home Going Offline In Europe On March 31, 2015

about X hours ago from

PlayStation Home is slowly on its way off of Sony servers and into the history books. The service, which was announced for termination in Asia in August, will also be taken offline in Europe.

The European servers will cease operation on March 31, 2015. The last batch of new content will arrive on November 12, 2014, with downloads ceasing on December 3. Between then and the server closures, Sony will push free content out to users.  

The sunset dates align with those in Asia, though those territories have already ceased providing new content. We’ve reached out to Sony to inquire about operations in North America.

Capcom Adding Jill Valentine And Chris Redfield BSAA Costumes To HD REmake

Earlier this month, Capcom announced a community promotion to unlock more Resident Evil HD REmake content. The packaging is an infection scenario, with players becoming zombies as they signed up. There wasn’t much meat on this endeavor's bone, but now Raccoon City is teeming with the undead.

As a reward, Capcom is adding two new costumes to the upcoming Resident Evil HD REmake. Players will be able to put Chris Redfield and Jill Valentine in their Bioterrorism Security Assessment Alliance (BSAA).

Resident Evil HD REmake will be out in 2015 for Xbox One, Xbox 360, PlayStation 4, PlayStation 3, and PC.

Another Destiny Magic Treasure Cave Has Been Discovered

Yesterday, Bungie released a patch for Destiny that, among other things, stomped out a location for loot farming. It was as if a million voices suddenly cried out in terror, and suddenly had no drops.

Today, there is a new hope. PS4 Trophies has discovered another “magic treasure cave.” Well, it’s not really a cave. It’s a door, but let’s not get caught up in semantics.

Enemies pour out of it. You shoot them. Then you collect loot. This is MMO grinding at its most grindy.

Blizzard Giving Players Ability To Resurrect Deleted World of Warcraft Characters

Do you miss that old mage who bit the dust? Consider WoW your own personal Pet Cemetery.

In a post on the official World of Warcraft blog, Blizzard revealed this new feature, which will be released in an upcoming pre-Warlords of Draenor content patch: "We're adding a new feature that allows players to undelete characters...Undeleting a character restores all of its enchantments, gems, and items fully intact. You'll be able to get back into action right away, and your character won't remember being deleted - we won't tell, either."

There are some exceptions, read the full list of exceptions here. Also, after you delete a character, the name will be held for a limited time (Blizzard didn't specify how long), allowing you to bring back that character with the same name or transfer the name to a new character.

While The Last Guardian is still missing in action, some ex-Team Ico members are readying a bewitching new game titled Vane.

Friend & Foe Games is made up of five former employees of Team Ico, and the aesthetic of games like Ico and Shadow of the Colossus is evident in this teaser trailer Vane. While the shots of what looks to be a child exploring strange environments is very reminiscent of Ico, at the end of the trailer we see that the child can also transform into a hawk or some other bird of prey.

The game is slated to appear on PC, and possibly new-gen consoles.
