As the penultimate article in my series on PlayStation Home, we now delve into the mysteries of Xi which pushes the limits of what you’d think possible from a virtual world merely for socialising.

It’s worth reading what Joystiq has to say both about Xi in general and about the Hub in its article, ‘Xi infiltrates Home- and it’s kind of neat‘. My own thoughts echo Joystiq’s: why aren’t other Home spaces this cool? Quickly followed by the demand: let’s have more of this!
