New Home Apartment, Rent-Free

Megan Ybarra's Avatar Posted by on May 14, 2009 // PlayStation Network Marketing Manager


Hey everyone, starting today you can download the exclusive “Chamber” apartment for free in PlayStation Home. Nope, that’s not a misprint. This interactive space comes complete with fire pits, waterfalls and a giant tree that’s more alive than you might expect. But make sure to come into Home and download your apartment now, because after May 21st, this premium personal apartment disappears from the housing market forever.

One last thing before we go. We’ve created a new video for Home and we’d love for you to check it out and let us know what you think. We hope you like it!

Do want. :)
Any news on R2 game space?


+ ProwlingFox on May 14th, 2009 at 6:34 am said:

Very cool vid! Comment #2 :) and also, add more free clothing items. Charging for everything definitely turns me off.

Sweet video. Home just gets better and better.

Free is always good.
Thanks for the update

I love free stuff.

The video is good too. What song is that?


+ onisat on May 14th, 2009 at 6:40 am said:

Does anybody knows if this is live now? Because I’m flying out of town and I wont be back before it becomes paid DLC.

    Eek! You might want to find a way to log in before then. This apartment will not become paid DLC. Its free for this week and then its gone forever.

It is crazy that they charge for clothes and furniture e.t.c… Probably only a matter of time before sony will be charging us to play online just like microsoft. Well the day they do, will be the day I throw my ps3 into the bin.

I LOVE Free Stuff


+ Nagash_MalKaVian on May 14th, 2009 at 6:46 am said:

Nice to see Home is evolving, I don’t use it very much, but is a nice place to do some stuff if don’t know what to do :)


+ jazzyrider on May 14th, 2009 at 6:47 am said:

Nice free apartment. Not sure about the commercial though- kind of confusing for people that don’t know about Home.


+ XxBigP123xX on May 14th, 2009 at 6:48 am said:

At 43 seconds you can see people on top of the railing. Great job.


+ XxDeathDoctorxX on May 14th, 2009 at 6:51 am said:

+ thor_604 on May 14th, 2009 at 6:54 am said:

The song is Far from Home, by Tiga.


+ WantAPopsicle on May 14th, 2009 at 6:54 am said:

Cool, getting the appartment right now


+ Buddyleej on May 14th, 2009 at 6:55 am said:

Any news on the spaces with the trophy rooms?


+ rocketdn on May 14th, 2009 at 6:55 am said:

Nice video. Am going to get that new place right now.


+ hife on May 14th, 2009 at 7:02 am said:

Very nice. I’ve fallen far behind on Xi, but I’ll hop on to download this apt, catch up on Xi, and finally check out the EA space later today.


+ MGSTigerFox on May 14th, 2009 at 7:02 am said:

That’s very cool news – great job!

I want to know if that horrible “Chain Swing” song will ever be removed from the Listen area… and also, when will we be able to display all of our trophies in our apartments? =) New apartment spaces are available, but it would be excellent to be able to really deck out the places we already have!

Thanks for the time and any replies!


+ Chimpanzee on May 14th, 2009 at 7:04 am said:

I love how even in an official video, there are people glitching on the railings!

Good news about the free stuff.


+ Vengeful-Chaos on May 14th, 2009 at 7:08 am said:

The video was quite funny, the normal guy turning into the mohawk guy and the punk rocker turning into a normal person was a very nice.


+ KSPRAYDAD on May 14th, 2009 at 7:08 am said:


Did SONY force you to purchase ANYTHING to participate in HOME? They didn’t force me to buy anything. I think you may have an issue with your PS3 if it is telling you that you MUST buy clothes and furniture.


+ KSPRAYDAD on May 14th, 2009 at 7:09 am said:

Where, other than here and in HOME will we see this ad? Television spot?


+ jasopan_ on May 14th, 2009 at 7:11 am said:

So where can i download this?


+ Trucidation on May 14th, 2009 at 7:12 am said:

Haven’t been back to Home after I saw that you had to pay $$$ for furniture.. riiight


+ GGCAN on May 14th, 2009 at 7:16 am said:

Thanks Megan…I remember reading about this space previously.

I want to see exactly what the talking tree says.


+ dwardu on May 14th, 2009 at 7:16 am said:

i cant find it !!!!!! damn european home. why dont we get the same stuff the us get.


+ mixedkidbx on May 14th, 2009 at 7:17 am said:

Hey free is always good! :D especially since i’ve bought things from home.


+ DEBO2U on May 14th, 2009 at 7:19 am said:

Great news.
I just visited my new apartment. “Fire and Water”, very cool. And the moving head, awsome.
I have a friend who just sent his playstation in for repairs. Any chance he can get this apartment if he pays for it?
Anyway, great news.

…and released on my birthday! How cool is that! Thank you for the awesome free apartment Sony! I will be picking up the other two as well, the log cabin and movie stage.

Look here for EU HOME plans…your ‘leader’ is TedTheDog.


This is who you should listen too/bug about HOME SCEE

@26 Estates store in the mall for NA users.


+ budmuhnquai on May 14th, 2009 at 7:23 am said:

It’s a good job you didn’t use the European version of Home to make the video, as there’d have been nothing to feature in it. Half of those spaces aren’t available in Europe. Once again, a prime example of how little care and attention has been paid to the Euro market.

I’d really love to get a good, honest, reasonable explanation as to why the Euro version of Home is so empty. I’m willing to bet good money that no one can offer one.

If I were in charge around here, I’d just shut Home down and stop pouring money into it. It’s a complete waste of time and effort on Sony’s part.


+ IceReign on May 14th, 2009 at 7:25 am said:

Thought that was a cool trailer.


+ KSPRAYDAD on May 14th, 2009 at 7:29 am said:

@35…see the link provided in #33


+ Quixote on May 14th, 2009 at 7:32 am said:

I know that I may be in the minority here, but HOME to me is a MMoB- Massive Multiplayer online Boring.


+ echogridlock on May 14th, 2009 at 7:33 am said:

Cool… I had no idea how cool home has become. I was one of the early beta testers and ive been riding along through all the updates but never until I had seen this video of home in its entirty did i realize how cool it is. Thanks. :)


+ TheZed88 on May 14th, 2009 at 7:34 am said:

I don’t use Home much but anytime the words “free” and “limited time” go together I just have to snatch it up. It’s a bit of a cumpolsion.


+ Loki_d20 on May 14th, 2009 at 7:36 am said:

Okay, going to have to log in and redownload everything just to get that homespace. Very nicely done based on the screenshots.

Vid was okay, bit long. Probably should show videos like that in movie theaters in the usual pre-movie advertisement that starts ~30 minutes before the previews.


+ zombie9 on May 14th, 2009 at 7:38 am said:

tryed to get in home 6 hours ago now I know why it was down!!! :0


+ RuthlessEd on May 14th, 2009 at 7:40 am said:

The day they censored text chat was the day I quite using Home.

I’m in my thirties…and I don’t need Sony acting as my mom and dad.


+ remanutd5 on May 14th, 2009 at 7:40 am said:

great video , this should be a tv ad , now give me my motorstorm , resistance , ratchet , little big planet , killzone , socom , gran turismo , heavenly sword , god of war home game spaces with in game support lol , im not complaining dont get me wrong i just happen to buy playstation exclusives and one or two long time series like call of duty , gta and prince of persia


+ Korbei83 on May 14th, 2009 at 7:44 am said:

I’m sure I’ve got better uses for the HDD space.


+ typikal82 on May 14th, 2009 at 7:44 am said:

Cool video, thanks for letting us bum around


+ Jeigh on May 14th, 2009 at 7:50 am said:

Freaking…AWESOME! I love trees that may or may not be alive! The video and the song go very well together (nice find!), but:

while I find the transitions between real life and Home life to be interesting, I don’t really think it brings anything to the table. If this is going to be made into a commercial, I’d think of cutting down on those and playing up the aspects such as the presence of games like Street Fighter, Warhawk and such within Home. Maybe a costume commercial! (A dance-off between the Helghast and the Street Fighters? ) :D

Nice work!


+ GordyNYC on May 14th, 2009 at 7:50 am said:

Love the new space. I’ve never noticed just how great the HOME HDRI lighting engine is. Love the interactive touches in the space and the pixies in the tree… Very cool. I can’t wait to have my pet dragon flying around in there ;^) Keep it up with the whimsical spaces.


+ h4rri3r0 on May 14th, 2009 at 7:51 am said:

Fantastic video. :)


+ Delriach on May 14th, 2009 at 7:53 am said:

Very nice video guys.
