I have no idea what this means, but it was on the loading screen and a poster in Home Square.

Weird. Good find CMC.

First thing that crosses my mind is money god as that 'statue' looks a bit like him (the afro).

For those who dont know, in Asia Home there has been a tradition yearly where players chase an NPC figure around their Home Square to win a packet of PSN Cash to spend. If you catch the Money God you win a reward as well as the cash to spend.
Money God was the first and theyve had other similar characters like Money God junior at times.
Historically these events are put on by Sony Asia.

Maybe Granzella is getting involved this year?

Asia region still are supposed to be receiving new content until March although they havent got much in the last month.

That's the original Money God.  Looks like he will be making his return for the last Money God event.  My guess is that GZ will be producing the rewards or maybe it will be held in a GZ space this year.  I think one year nDreams had some sort of involvement with the Lunar New Year/Money God event.

Maybe it means that they'll be merging Granzella with Sony to keep Home from dying. I hope I'm right! Smiley Very Happy

im in agreement with cin here,  although its that time of the year  for the money god,  I think it woulda been advertised as the money god.  I strongly believe when home comes to a close,  region by region, a developer will come to the rescue.  I think thats what were seeing.

No, the "x" in that advertisement is frequently used as a collaboration event in the Asian territories.

Yup Nagon I believe it may be just a collabo and not a full out takeover but just imagine if Granzella ran an ENTIRE REGION'S SERVER?!? How cool would that be? It even fits into my Home theory that like Esco up there said I believe Home will potentially be sold to a developer from Sony eventually. No facts to back it up but it would be a wise move IMO
