New Star Wars Content Comes to PlayStation Home + IREM Seaside of Memories, Two New Personal Spaces + More!

Locust_Star's Avatar + Posted by Locust_Star on Mar 03, 2010 // PlayStation Home Community Manager

Over the past few weeks, we’ve received tons of requests from you in-world, via Blog comments and in the official PlayStation Home forums. You’ve asked for more Star Wars and Indiana Jones offerings in the recently-opened Lucas Arts store. You’ve asked for us to bring over the Irem Seaside of Memories public space. You’ve asked for more dazzling personal spaces in tropical locales. So we’re bringing these things (and more) to you, the loyal PlayStation Home community tomorrow, March 4. Want more info? Read on, my friends…

You asked for more lightsabers – you got ‘em! You wanted more costumes, like the Dark Lord’s armor Star Wars: The Force Unleashed? Or maybe you want to dress up like a Clone Trooper? As a hardcore Indiana Jones fan, you might want Mutt Williams’ gear or a Crystal Skull for your personal space. That’s why our friends over at LucasArts are stocking the shelves with tons of hot new items this week (as well as dropping a Yoda Fountain in Central that answers all of your pressing questions). Here’s a taste of what to expect come Thursday morning.

We’re pleased to announce that the highly-requested Irem Seaside of Memories public space – with its resort-like atmosphere, complete with three huts (including one swimwear storefront), white sand beaches, and some totally rad rewards for all you guys and the gals – is launching this week. This serene oceanfront locale is the perfect place to catch some sun, take a swim, and just chill out with your friends. Check out the pics below for a sneak peek of what is in store for you this week.

In these short winter days it oftentimes feels like you can never have too much sun…or too much fun. And that’s precisely why we have decided to release two new additions to our luxury personal space line. These two spaces – a beautiful Santorini-based seaside mansion and a wave-faring Yacht – are the textbook definition of opulence and affluence. Since these dazzling new spaces complement one another perfectly, we’ll be bundling them together at a reduced price of $7.99 (they will also be available for $4.99 separately). Look at the pics to get a better look at these fantastic new personal spaces.

In terms of what is going down this week in the PlayStation Home Theater, you’ll find the newest episode of The Tester – the PlayStation Network exclusive reality series – playing come this Thursday (the previous week’s episode will be screening in the lobby for those of you who need to catch up). We’re also releasing a new The Tester commemorative item, pictured below. In addition to The Tester footage, you’ll find new footage from this here Blog, including videos relating to BioShock 2 and Final Fantasy XIII.

Are we ever going to get Demon’s Souls armors?

Japan Home has gotten them for a year now. I’ve been waiting since i saw them back then. I don’t see how it’s a problem for them to make something that’s been released for that long here.

I have suggested Hustle Kings content for Home
In the North to devs and the Home team American boards but it was delivered in the UK (Out of my reach) I thought that was unfair.

I’ve heard about the Irem seaside beach even before this was announced. I think this is where for the first time, your character can actually swim. This is kind of cool for most of us. 5/5 A+, Sony. Thank you.

+ xiked on March 3rd, 2010 at 2:51 pm said:

Great to see a personal space that you can swim around a bit! I want a personal space that is a big Island that you can explore and funny exiting challenges around it. Some inspired from great adventure movies.

btw. My idea that I wrote a while ago about people be able to challenge each other in open spaces would be cool to be implemented! Like you buy a Star wars challenge pack and then you could challenge other that have the same pack. Cool light saber duels and ppl could start betting on how that will win.

i was disappointed with the planetland space – not a single room! i could’ve put that $4.99 tag price on the clock tower! PLEASE! PLEASE! PLEASE! HAVE A PREVIEW OPTION OF THE PERSONAL SPACES!

now i’m stuck with it!

Do you know if/when we’ll get the updates to the Irem Festival space like the fish game and additional shooting gallery prizes? I am glad we are getting the Seaside of Memories space, definitely checking it out ASAP tomorrow.

now that we gots Sea Side of Memories can we PLEASE PLEASE PLEASE get the school uniforms and bunny girl outfits from IREM?

+ StephieRawks on March 3rd, 2010 at 7:32 pm said:

Thanks for finally bringing Seaside of Memories to NA! *packs a suitcase full of bikinis* I’m so excited!

Great move bundling the 2 personal spaces together too! I hope they’re each big enough to warrant the price, but at least seperately we can make better use of that pesky 50 item limit. Is there a door that connects them, like the ubiquitous doors to Central Plaza?

Umm…now about LucasArts content…
I have a hard time believing ANYONE requested a Mutt Williams costume. Seriously! Everyone hated him! I hope there’s a slave Leia costume and Padme’s picnic dress in there too. We didn’t get a single female character last time! A yoda backpack like they sell at Disneyland would be awesome too. I also know the guys have been saying for 2 weeks that they’d love to be Darth Maul and Darth Vader…but no one asked for Mutt Williams!

+ HeatherShow on March 3rd, 2010 at 7:51 pm said:

Please, please, I’m begging you, tell me that we girls got *something* in the LucasArts store that’s actually feminine? Something that actually LOOKS like a woman? PLEASE! We girls are dying out here! We don’t want to look like a MALE Stormtrooper, we want to look like a woman! Star Wars and Indiana Jones have NO shortage of strong female characters in awesome, kick butt costumes. Leia’s classic white dress, Slave Leia from Jabba’s ship, her gorgeous white gown from the closing sequence of Return of the Jedi! Or what about Marion’s wardrobe? That blonde chick whose name I can never remember from Temple of Doom, she had an awesome outfit during her song & dance number at the opening of the movie! There are SO many great options, but yet again, Home seems to falling into the trap of completely and utterly forgetting about the female population in Home.
So I’m left to wonder. Is it Home Management’s fault? Or does George Lucas just not care for girls?
Please, please, I’m begging you, give us girls some good news. Please tell us that there will be some distinctly feminine costumes available in the LucasArts store come tomorrow.
Thanks!

I really want the Dark Lord Starkiller armor. That was the main reason I got Force Unleashed-The Ultimate Sith edition. Lightsabers will wait till they reduce them far below $5. $5 for a virtual toy, isn’t worth it. I can find them for as cheap as $2 in real life.

i just pray to the GOD that they make the GOD OF WAR SPACE ..FUN.unlike the some of the other spaces we have with no mini games or anything special to keep us coming back to it :/ Im sure the HOME Dev team can impress us..RIGHT?

I’m so glad we’re getting the seaside of memories, I’ve wanted to check it out for so long! Also I agree, I hope we get the other IREM clothes like school girl stuff…the swim suits and locations are a good sign though!

+ CherylRose on March 3rd, 2010 at 11:27 pm said:

Glad to see the beach space! Any chance we’ll see interactions between avatars? At least between friends? I feel that would add a much more interactive experience to home.

Also any chance faster loading time could eb implemented? It take like 10 minutes for me to load home and almost equally as long to load items in the mall or my wardrobe.

I would really like to see earned Trophies as objects in Home. For me, that would give all these buy-able Home spaces a purpose and some value.

Maybe I’d be willing to invest a few bucks in Home if I thought it would be worth it. Right now, it still feels like an isolated experience. Maybe headset support in public areas would make it feel more immersive. And, yes, I know that would make it harder to control content(user language, etc.), but Home will never reach its full potential with communication being limited.
