PlayStation 3 owners can now immerse themselves in a world of Hudson Entertainment as the company launches â€œHudson Gateâ€ for PlayStation Home. The portal lounge area will serve as a home-base for all things Hudson including games, virtual item shopping and product information. Within the lounge, there is also a racing match frequently conducted with â€œDolphyâ€ the virtual pet.
â€œHudson Gate is a central location for PlayStation owners and Hudson fans to explore and experience the Hudson digital world,â€ said Mike Pepe, director of marketing for Hudson Entertainment. â€œPlayers can shop for and play games, buy Hudson branded clothes for their avatars including customizable Bomberman costumes, all to enhance their PlayStation gaming experience.â€
As a central digital world within PlayStation Home, â€œHudson Gateâ€ will include the Dolphy racing mini-game, in which eight Dolphies compete. Players can watch, vote and participate in the races to obtain virtual rewards. Players can also purchase a â€œDolphy Roomâ€ which enables them to breed their own Dolphy pets for them to race. Also, the â€œBomber Dome,â€ which is situated within the big bomb-like dome, will open to coincide with the release of Bomberman Live: Battlefest on Playstation Network within this year.
