Haha with all of the clues and hints we have been bringing to you, was there any doubt?!?!?! God you all should have realized when I posted Stapler in his party hat.... Be prepared for anything to the Xi noobs out there, you/we have no clue how awesome this could be... I have spent years waiting for this to return. People ask why you use Home? I have been waiting for this moment
Yeah, I'd say a LOT that's been happening in Home the past couple of years has really just been a method of time-killing until something like Xi could return!! Not to slight any developers out there, but I'd suggest you pay close attention to how this whole thing plays out, and you may not only see what users enjoy most, but also get ideas about how to explode your business.
I wonder about how many items will have to be purchased in order to complete the goals this time. Hopefully, it's just an overly cynical speculation on my part.
Home is a different place these days compared to a few years ago.
See, this is what I was hinting at in my earlier post. They HAVE to know that there'll be a significant number of us who are going to have this nugget of knowledge sitting at the forefront of our minds going into this thing. Here's to hoping they remembered what it cost to complete Xi before, and forget the disaster of a plan that was the Cone of Loyalty...
I agree with this Post...
The Xi Hub back then didn't require anything more then your Brain, & it put your Brain Power to the Test, that is what it was about, now that things have gone from Free to $1 to $2.50 to $3, to $4 to $5, to even up to $10...
I tend to wonder if Playstation HOME is going to use this Event to Rack Up some Funds for themself...
I really hope PS HOME sticks to the whole Brain Activity thing, & avoid the money being involved...
Too much Networking, & Socializing, but yet not enough Gaming... ~_~
Not My Style!!!

If Xi moves into a pay to play model most of us will not participate. I know I won't.
On another note! The original Xi had it's own forum. I'm wondering if we'll get a special forum for this event. I sure hope so.
So, your finally seeing the epic Xi ! HAHAHAHAHA! Be ready for an adventure unlike anything you've been through. A world in transition a world in limbo , a world that is in a shambles. Yes , it is happening be ready for the Xi2 adventure.
And it will be a world where community spirit and cooperation will be the name of the day. It's what Home is all about. Sharing and helping one another to reach goals.
The original Xi was amazing. Hopefully this one will be as good and even better.
In regards to community spirit, I think this one's going to really stretch us out. You know how in the first one there were puzzles that needed to be solved in real life, but those were all in Europe, so the rest of us had to wait?
Well, if you really take a look at the new XI island, you'll notice three distinctly different styles of buildings. The front building is obviously of Asian origin, I believe specifically to be Japanese. The building attached to the Japanese building is of the American Townhouse style with a subway (America is known for it's subways), and next is an English Corner Shop.
I believe this means we should expect real life clues to appear in England, Japan, and America. We're really going to have to work together on this one.
Although HK and JP have been getting the posters and ticker messages, they also did not have the burning Aurora treehouse. It remains to be seen if they will be part of it, but who knows at this point? I have been working mostly with EU users on this subject thus far as NA seems rather impartial to the hints so far...
With the trend home has been in, I would expect to see some ($$) dollar signs associated with the new Xi.
Just have to wait and see if it's going to be a reasonable exchange.
