The Godfather II Gambles On PlayStation HomeS

EA joins the ranks of companies with a PlayStation Home presence a bit earlier than anticipated with The Godfather II space, complete with Texas Hold'Em table.

EA's PlayStation Home space for The Godfather II arrives tomorrow, well before the highly anticipated EA Sports Complex launches later this spring. Where there are mobsters there's bound to be gambling going on, so EA has included a Texas Hold 'Em table amongst the leather furniture and undoubtedly smoky-smelling carpet, giving PlayStation Home visitors yet another interactive thing to do in the increasingly interactive service.

To celebrate, Sony is holding their first Celebrity Poker Tournament tomorrow night, urging Homies (term coined!) to show up dressed a generic approximation of their favorite celebrity. The tourney kicks off at 5pm pacific, and ends when the rival mob kicks in the doors, spraying the crowd with bullets...or whenever people stop playing.

If gangsters aren't your thing, be sure to check out Capcom's newly refreshed Resident Evil 5 space, where a new mini-game quest and a souvenir shop with character costumes awaits the wary traveler. Do Chris and Sheva count as celebrities?
