There appears to be something missing though. Though our UK neighbours get the COD:W@W Map Pack to download, it is suspiciously missing from non-UK European stores.
Videos depicting a new feature of Home have been popping up all over the web. These short clips show what appears to be random images, both from the real world and the world inside Home. Most of the clips feature the Greek letter Xi located on a building within Home. Needless to say, these videos are quite strange. It feels like watching an episode of Lost.

Itâ€™s common knowledge that the PlayStation Stores in Europe and North America lack many PSOne games.
For a company who made their landmark PS2 compatible with nearly every single PlayStation game, itâ€™s surprising that they appear to be making little progress in delivering classic titles to the PlayStation Network.
