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.

@ StephieRawks Oh come on!! Everybody wants to be a bad Shia character!! lmao I was wondering the same thing about the ‘two personal spaces that compliment each other perfectly’… I was actually HOPING that migration betwixt the 2 spaces was possible without the use of the PDA… for yourself AND your guests. As far as lucasarts stuff, I don’t see myself making too many purchases there until they recognize the fact they’re overcharging for their goods…

@Locust_Star Great stuff on the update, with the exception of the Mutt Williams costume, but I’m guessing you had no control over that… That being said, I was wondering if the Trinity had come to a concensus as to when we can look forward to the community Q & A. I understand that your position and schedule makes it difficult to give a definitive answer and probably even a harder time to nail down a specific date, but any info you could share would be deeply appreciated. Thank you in advance.

Santorini and the Luxury yacht are great. But there is a few things that might make them fantastic… Bubbles in the Yacht’s hot tub, fishing off the fan tail and water effects going in and out of the Hot Tub. Also would like to be able to use camera while seated in Hot Tub since I purchased that special watertight case for it I want to be able to use it in the water…

And I want to pilot the Yacht, not go back to central plaza…

The sea side ocean view, looks like North Freeport, going to Ocean of Tears in the PC game called Everquest, those that play EQ, should reconize the scenery.

The Santorini twofer looks great, but I also can’t locate the bundle. Where is it?

I agree with the previous poster, a personal space preview, or at least a better description of the spaces, is much needed. I also bought the Planetland space and was disappointed to find great graphics but no rooms, no games, nothing but a (fantastic) view. Sub-par, that one.

On a unrelated note, i was wondering why i and many other were unable to purchase the Limited Edition Ezio outfit? it didn’t appear in threads or anywhere else and i was itching to buy it. I know because i was well within the time limit. So what’s the deal? was it a bug? are there plans to make it available to those unable to purchase it by no fault of their own?

Because I don’t know where else to bring this up, I’ll say something here. I’m addicted to EA’s poker games. If only I could get one of those tables in my personal space. Or maybe create a new personal space that includes a poker table. Casino inspired personal space perhaps? I’d like to be able to have private games without the hassle of some of the random people who seem dead set on ruining the game. Seems like the concept has lots of potential. This is my first Home specific post, first time I’m motivated enough to share my thoughts.

I like that we’re now able to queue downloading content from the main screen. However I’d like to see a few more things:

1. Option to auto-queue the entire Playstation Home, to download everything that’s currently available.
2. Option to auto-update all existing content as needed.

Great Star Wars stuff. I have the blue lightsaber and the apprentice outfit. I would like to see a red lightsaber and a Darth Vader costume. That would be even better. Great job thus far.
