NBA Comes into PlayStation Home + NFL Player Jerseys, Paris Clock Tower Personal Space and More!

Locust_Star's Avatar + Posted by Locust_Star on Jan 20, 2010 // PlayStation Home Community Manager

If you’re like me then you are literally counting down the days until Super Bowl XLIV and wringing your hands in anticipation of the 59th Annual NBA All-Star Game. You’re a hardcore sports fan that spends all of his or her spare time either sitting in front of the tube watching the game or (better yet) sitting behind your DualShock controller and playing the game. And the only thing better than being at home with an ice-cold beverage cracked, watching your favorite team with old friends is being IN PlayStation Home finding new friends to launch into Madden NFL 10 or NBA Live 10. And that, my fellow ballers and leatherheads, is why PlayStation Home is THE place to be this week.

Continuing to come strong with the sports content, EA is bringing a boatload of football and basketball items to the PlayStation Home community this Thursday, January 21. From NFL jerseys that sport (pun intended) the names of some of the league’s best players – from Romo to Manning to Bush – to NBA jerseys emblazoned with the logos of your favorite teams, we have something for every sports fanatic this week (that is, unless you are a fan of curling or solo synchronized swimming.) Head to the EA SPORTS Complex or the PlayStation Home Mall come this Thursday and stock up on these hot items before Super Bowl fever lays you out or you get benched for throwing elbows on the court.

In other news, we’ll be releasing what is easily one of the coolest personal spaces ever to launch in PlayStation Home – the Paris Clock Tower. This unique apartment, overlooking the bustling Parisian streets, is a marvel of urban living, unrivaled in terms of luxury and highly-customizable so as to suit various tastes. Choose from a variety of furniture and clothing options, bundled together at an absolutely killer deal, and put your personal touch on the Clock Tower personal space. But first, check out the screens for a peek at what this awesome new space has to offer.

This week’s PlayStation Home publish is heavy on sweet new reward items, with White Knight Chronicles and PixelJunk Shooter rewards now unlocking in PlayStation Home after in-game performance milestones are reached, and a free Star Ocean t-shirt unlocking for users that visit the PlayStation Home Theater and watch the special video contained therein. Check the pics below for a taste of what’s in store for you this week.

Finally, those of you who grabbed the Waterfall Terrace will be thrilled to find that a ton of new furniture items are being released to complement this wildly-popular personal space. You can grab these Waterfall Terrace-themed items (and many more) in the Furniture and Estates stores in the PlayStation Home Mall. For a list of all the new content (and, in the case of virtual items, their locations), be sure to check the Latest Updates tab when in-world. You can access this tab by pressing Start to open your Menu Pad > Community > Latest Updates.

See you in Home!

Don’t go there man. Especially with Vancouver closing in really quickly.

I am kind of loving this update: Why is it the NFL gets teams with player names, but the NBA just gets teams? I love, LOVE to see a KOBE BRYANT, PAU GASOL, LAMAR ODOM, D FISHER, etc, etc jerseys instead of just the team LOGO on the front. It looks like a cheap jersey with no number and no name of player on the back! Will we see player names on jerseys anytime soon?

I love the winning of items for HOME from in game milestones. Great implementation. It adds tons of incentive and replay ability in games that builds on top of the already great trophy system.

+ HatmanTc on January 20th, 2010 at 12:09 pm said:

Can we get a player list of what NFL stars jersey will be available to purchase.
Odd how EA is sponsering the NBA unis, when Sony has their own NBA game.

So does this mean if EA is doing all the sports unis, that there won’t be any MLB themed goodies for HOME any time soon, since EA doesn’t have any sort of MLB licensing

That WKC figure, is that a Home avatar, or just a statue? Can we unlock a White Knight as an avatar for your users?

Please allow more games to add HOME features and goodies for unlocking trophies and other stuff in their games. That will definitely push people to visit HOME more than they already do.

Awesome update Locust_Star.

Are the new player jerseys the same as the 00 ones in terms of design? Looking forward to the updates, and the Paris space looks very elegant.

Are the PixelJunk Shooter reward items completely new items, or are they the same ones that were released before, just patched for those whom they weren’t unlocking for?

    + Locust_Star on January 20th, 2010 at 4:40 pm said:

    These items should now be unlocking for you. Give it a try and, if for some reason they don\’t appear in your inventory, give us a shout at the official PlayStation Home Support forum: http://tinyurl.com/y9gr7mc. We log all issues and pass them along to the devs so they can address any bugs.

If we don’t like EA can we delete it from Home I really could use that feature. Thanks :)

+ lyfestory on January 20th, 2010 at 12:34 pm said:

maybe EA should have a tie-in with the Madden game where you could just win the jerseys setting some kinda feat during your playtime… thats a good incentive right there…

and the NBA unis dont have the players because of the licensing probably, with Sony also having their NBA game..

which means Sony needs to get on the ball and start creating some spaces of their own, especially with the baseball season mere months away… if we dont get baseball jerseys come spring training, im crying ‘foul’!!!

its also too bad there werent some ways to win some of these personal home spaces rather than having to pony up for them.. i simply cant afford all this added stuff, and i work 40+ hours a week…

+ Sparx88 on January 20th, 2010 at 12:35 pm said:

@19 Yeah man I noticed that too. EA can have a lot of smaller schools but somehow missed a couple big boys. Even though I am a Buckeye fan not only was I sad to see that somehow OSU got left out but Oregon did too, and those are just the 2 I happened to notice. EA needs to get their stuff together if they’re going to offer things like this.

This paris clock tower thing looks very much much like the final fantasy free personal space from japan with a different view outside

    + Locust_Star on January 20th, 2010 at 4:36 pm said:

    It\’s a completely different space, I can assure you of that. And it\’s absolutely visually dazzling and makes for a very immersive atmosphere. You should check it out, whether than means picking it up for yourself or just going into a friend\’s and having a look around.

Great update! Can we please play our music and videos in our appartments? Atleast stream listen@home? Their is no difference between a friend coming over to your place and watch videos or a PSN friend coming to hang out in home and watch a PSN movie. Right now Home appartments are visually pleasing. their needs to be more intergration of PSN content and home.

Seems like a smooth update. Any word on TV’s and radios. Also I found a bug or a glitch and I would like to know if its fix or being worked on. I’ll give you the link but please tell me if its not just me having this problem.

the shooter rewards are something new or are they a fix on the suit issues?
or perhaps both?

otherwise, the WKC stuff looks neat.
