Locust_Star's Avatar + Posted by Locust_Star on Dec 02, 2009 // PlayStation Home Community Manager

All of you über-dedicated PlayStation Home fanatics have yet another hundred or so reasons to log in this week. First off, another batch of Assassin’s Creed II virtual items are set to be released – specifically, Renaissance costumes pulled straight from 15th Century Italy. These items are must-have additions to the repertoire of any true AC2 fanboy (or girl) – just like a good ‘ole pistola kill. So sneak your way into the Mall this week you silent and deadly warriors, and add these awesome new items to your collection while the gettin’ is good.

All you rabid PlayStation Home collectors that have to grab the latest, greatest, coolest, and hottest content the second it hits the virtual shelves will be thrilled with the new line of Iron Fist virtual items, live this Thursday in the Mall. Iron Fist’s fusion of bold color and abstract action and sport-related designs result in cutting edge fashion apparel that has become popular among skaters, rockers, fighters, and others that insist on living on the edge. So if you’re bad, know it, and aren’t afraid to show it, be sure to come raid the racks this week.

We’re getting a head-start on our own festivities and releasing a heap of holiday goodies this week (and, yes, that was the sound of me not-so-subtly dropping the hint that there are some big things in store for all of my Home-boys and Home-girls this year).If you visit the Mall this Thursday, you’ll find a literal ton of festive items that will help you celebrate the holidays properly in PlayStation Home. And in the spirit of giving, we’ll be making many of these items available to you free-of-charge, so everyone can partake in the season in the style of their choice. This week’s content update is just the tip of the iceberg, so remember to stay tuned to this blog for more details regarding this year’s holiday celebrations in PlayStation Home.

Finally, if you visit the PlayStation Home 10-Screen Theater today and watch the clip from the upcoming season of A&E’s highly-anticipated new show Steven Seagal: Lawman, you will get a free commemorative Lawman vest. So come check out the clip, grab the free virtual item (it’s only available today), and then tune in to A&E on Wednesday, December 2nd to watch as one of the world’s foremost action movie stars takes to the mean streets of New Orleans with the Jefferson Parish Sheriff’s Office in the Steven: Seagal Lawman series premiere.

Another awesome update from the Home team.

Still amazed at what a massive success Home turned out to be. It has really blown everyone away.

What is it up to now? 9 million users last I heard.

What an Epic Humilation for Microsoft. Sony has this amazing and gigantic online world supported by all the major publishers and Microsoft only answer is a creepy and retarded Nintendo Mii ripoff.

Sounds like a good update this week.

Happy to hear about the free festive items. I hope there here for more than just a week.

Most of the other stuff doesnt appeal to me too much, but maybe next week will be better.

still no trophy room, stream media from HDD in your personal home space, and no universal game set up launch? HOME continue to be a failure until those features are implemented. Why brag about those features if they are not part of the HOME experience. I wish Phil Phil Harrison was still with Sony because we would have probable gotten all those features and more already.

Home isnt a failure without it, but it is something that would make Home so much better.

@10 FredPunella
how old are you? You accuse me of being a xbox 360 fanboy, but yet you know nothing about me. Do you honestly think any xbox 360 fanboy would praise Phil Harrison? Do you even know Phil Harrison is or what he has done for Sony in the past? Any true Sony fan would know how much Phil Harrison meant to Sony and how much respect Sony gamers have for that man.

@11 proskatercam
Home is a failure in gamers eyes. Why is it that almost all games do not have any kind connection with HOME? Very few games unlock any kind of reward in HOME and game specific spaces tend to come well after they game is release.

Sony if you read this all the above ideas for home are awesome but one thing i would like to point out: if you do something cool for Europe’s PSN Home then you should do the same for the US and everywhere else. Case in point the Santa stage in the Eu home. Also what i believe you should add as a feature is to allow the playing of music you have on your hard drive while your importing another (from cd). You say that you have all this power yet i still don’t see it. I can’t do all the multitasking I’d like to do. (granted some of it is obviously harder to come up with or harder to implement or just down right impossible but still). Not to be hating but you guy’s talk of big game i just haven’t seen it yet. PlayStation still rules.

This is great and all but has tech support found a solution for the bug that causes some users ps3 to lock up upon loading up the last space they were in.

I’ve tried deleting and reinstalling and deleting everything home related to no avail. However all my other ps3 accounts work fine in home =/

I will NEVER pay for virtual items on Home. Make virtual items free bonus items for your loyal fans who have supported you for years, along with including in dl content from a respective game developer and virtual items would hold more value.

How to make Home worth visiting:
Home needs voice chat back, and hopefully its being perfected(instead of constantly holding the R2 button maybe we could just click R3) and not canned altogether .
Put some comedies/cartoons/…something worth making a trip to the Theater worthwhile.
Would it hurt to put some 80s and 90s music in the mix of songs to choose from?
Add more mini games to play.

With these type of changes Playstation Home would thrive. Please don’t ignore my post because I’m sure everyone wants at least 1 of these changes, and if you peeps agree please state it in your post.

I really have to say home is getting better and better but is still missing a lot of the stuff that got people all hyped up about it when it first was announced. I mean I know it couldn’t all be brought out on day 1 but some things that I would really like to see implemented in home are…

- Day & Night Cycles or the ability to choose the time of day* so those Glow in the Dark items can be used anywhere in any space.

- Different Weather Effects* such as Rain,Snow,Summer Heat effects such as mirages. OK maybe the Mirages are going to far but I think you know what I mean.

*Make sure you are able to do this for any outside space weather it is an apartment you bought or a Home Space for anybody.

- Improvement on Previewing Clothes in Mall, Now what we have was better than nothing but when we are previewing clothes in the Mall it should take us to our Wardrobe screen where we can get a full view and see if any of our existing purchases fit with any of the new clothes and be able to keep some of the clothes on from the same store but basically what I am saying is all the previewing of clothes should be done in the Wardrobe Screen not in that little box in the mall description.

Why is home still in beta?

+ Wolf26pack on December 2nd, 2009 at 10:43 pm said:

- Previewing Option of Furniture, Now with this we should be able to look at furniture and move it around our existing apartments to see how well it fits in the Apartment. Now it could either allow us to choose an apartment to view it in from what we bought (Which is the better way) or it could just go to what you set as your default apartment and you have to change it to preview it in the different apartment.

Apartment Open Houses – The ability to walk through Apartments not yet purchased to see what they look like before you buy them.

Also if you allowed people to basically create full apartments by allowing them to preview different unpurchased furniture in unpurchased apartments you may end up getting more impulse buyers when it comes to Apartments and Furniture because they will already have an idea of what they want to buy and how they will put it all together.

+ Wolf26pack on December 2nd, 2009 at 10:53 pm said:

- More Interaction in spaces & Apartments, What I am looking for here is not only different mini games in apartments that release more home items but more interactive items to be released in Home.

For Example in the New Pirate Galleon Apartment there is the Mini Game which is cool but not much else. The water looks dull and lifeless. It looks like it could have been so much more, had they added a Plank with 3 sharks fins circling around below it and if we had the different weather effects we could have lighting and Rain in the background all while having moving different colored stage lighting attached to the top of the masts of the boat while Dance/Rave music is playing in the background or what ever music you really want playing. Basically a great party on the deck of a Boat, but it can’t be any of that right now.

Also items like what we got from buying that Breast Cancer T-Shirt from EA were great & we got some lights for DJ’s but those lights didn’t move they were static.

Now some things are just over priced such as the Ratchet & Clank Apartment. While it is a beautiful apartment & is huge it really has nothing you can do in it. The same could be said about the Post Apocalypse Apartment, that Apartment really is small and doesn’t really have anything interesting in it and finally…

It would be nice if we had the ability to listen to our own music on our HD’s while in Home. It doesn’t need to be broadcast to everyone just us, like how we can listen to our music while using the internet browser. Oh and while in the PS Store, I know that isn’t your department but I thought I would mention it anyways, well while I have tons of more suggestions those are all I will mention for right now. I do hope you are working on some and thanks for Home and I’m sure it will improve every week.

What are the actual daily user numbers on Home? Have they ever been published?

I was put off from Home because of the long loading times and constant downloads. Also found the spaces to be pretty sterile and the mini games lacked any creativity. The place needs more ambient noise and sound effects or radio stations, it’s eerily quiet. It’d be great to have a treasure hunt across all the spaces like in Uncharted 2 with prizes of free content or game voucher codes.

Home has so much potential but it has been sorely wasted. Instead every update there are more pointless spaces for people to run aimlessly about in and more virtual t-shirts. Home should be a place of fun and mystery and exploration and wonder.
