Resident Evil Studio Lot was a PlayStation Home hub modeled after Resident Evil 5. The Hub is no longer accessible, as both the hub itself was retired and PlayStation Home itself discontinued. It was the first area in the game when starting from Chapter 1-1. The area had several photos of Majini along with main characters, a studio van, cameras, chairs, and several buildings which, when examined from behind, are propped up stage displays indicating the idea that Resident Evil 5 was all just a movie. Several rooms that are inaccessible normally are replaced with studio equipment and could be visited. A large projection screen was placed near the area where in-game Majini assault a bag on the ground with blunt objects. The projection screen played an endless loop of a trailer from Resident Evil 5.
Reynard was the only actual character to appear, giving the player a mini-game where the player hunted for bugs and reports back to Reynard when one was found, and allowed the player into his butcher shop from the game which contains some behind the scenes material or explanations of some of the happenings in Resident Evil 5.
There also was an arcade machine inside one of the buildings. Walking up to the machine and activating it with the Resident Evil 5 disc inserted in the PlayStation 3, the game would boot. Upon exiting the game, the player would be redirected back to PlayStation Home and loaded back to the Resident Evil Studio Lot.
There are several items one can obtain pertaining to Resident Evil 5 that can be unlocked in various methods. As well there is also a shop known as "Adam's Shop" owned by a male merchant known as Adam. The shop sells a large multitude of items which can be purchased through PSN on PlayStation Home, such as full body costumes for men (Chris) and women (Sheva) along with various random T-shirt designs.
