Dead Island infects PlayStation Home

In what may be the most exciting PlayStation Home related news in living memory (topping even the announcement of Home itself), Dead Island publisher Deep Silver has announced that the upcoming zombie-survival/First person melee title will be making waves in Home's Central Plaza. Rather than give it a dedicated space as is the case with most games, they've opted for a full-on Home takeover.

Amidst the panic of the zombified Central Square, you'll find a Dead Island minigame which tasks you with crafting items and withstanding the zombie onslaught. Completion of the game and it's 10 challenges will unlock the "Exploding Meat" exclusive weapon in the full game. It's unclear what exactly that particular toy entails, but it sounds spectacular.

The event will go live shortly before the release of Dead Island and, because they care, you'll be able to preorder the game right from Home itself via a Central Plaza kiosk.

If you were looking for a reason to give Home another chance, this might be it.
