This Week in PlayStation Home: Twisted Metal, Resistance, inFAMOUS Content + Musicality Apartment, PlayStation.Blog Meetup and More!!!

Locust_Star's Avatar + Posted by Locust_Star on Mar 17, 2010 // PlayStation Home Community Manager

Every Thursday sees a deluge of new content publish on the PlayStation Home platform, and this week, of course, is no exception. From Resistance, inFAMOUS, and Twisted Metal items to beachside bungalows with built-in mini-games to personal concert venues (complete with all you’ll need to jam with your friends) to 100% exclusive community events, there is something going on in PlayStation Home this week for every kind of gamer – hardcore, casual, and any type in-between.

Our official forums (available at boardsus.playstation.com) have been buzzing with speculation as to when nDreams’ wildly-popular Musicality personal space was going to hit stateside. We here on the PlayStation Home Community Management have been anxiously awaiting the opportunity to announce that this highly-interactive personal space will be available in the Estates store come Thursday, March 18. Why? Because not only are we all bona fide music nerds, but because this is easily one of the most unique personal spaces to ever grace the platform. A veritable cornucopia of creativity, the Musicality personal spaces allows up to four people at a time to take control of an array of keyboards, drums, guitar, and a DJ console and perform music live in front of their friends. With hundreds of different loops at your disposal, the possibilities are endless in terms of the songs you and your friends can create and perform. Check out the video below for a taste of what to expect when this revolutionary new personal space releases this week.

Also available this week is a new addition in our line of luxurious personal spaces – a tropical retreat plucked straight out of the south Pacific and hand-delivered to your Home. Whether you are a straight up beach bunny or just taking a break from your latest surfari, this seaside abode is the perfect place to lay back and relax (or jump into the sand and kick a ball around). Watch this video for an overview of this hot (no pun intended) personal space, which promises to offer as much fun as it does sun.

Months back we asked you, the loyal PlayStation Home community, what kind of virtual items you would most like us to release. We all anticipated the answers we would receive (hello Star Wars!), but nonetheless I love to be the bearer of good news; the one that gets to say “boo-yah” in this here Blog. So, without further ado, we present new Resistance, inFAMOUS, and Twisted Metal ornaments and costumes galore! We’re talking everything from a Sweet Tooth costume to a Daedalus statue to a full Alden get-up. Don’t believe me? The evidence is below…

This week plays hosts to a ton of community events that can only be experienced in PlayStation Home. For instance, tonight from 6:00pm – 7:00pm PT (9:00pm-10:00pm EST) in PlayStation Home’s Theater 8, there will be a special meet-and-greet with Doc and Luge from the exclusive PlayStation Network reality show The Tester. Come prepared with your most burning questions, and stay tuned to the Blog for details regarding additional guest appearances from The Tester cast in PlayStation Home.

And, as with any week, be sure to visit the Theater each Thursday to watch the newest episode of The Tester, pick up free rewards, and grab commemorative items from the kiosks in the Theater and Central plaza (pictured below). This week we are airing Episode 5 as well as hosting a marathon screening of Episodes 1-4 in Theater 7 over the weekend!

Also scheduled for this week is a special PlayStation.Blog Meetup in the PlayStation Home Theater. Come out on Thursday night from 5:00pm – 7:00pm PT (8:00pm – 10:00pm EST) to watch an exclusive PlayStation Move video with the PlayStation Home and Blog community, get some face time with the players that bring you a never-ending stream of news on the Blog, and pick up free – and exclusive – virtual items. I grabbed a quick shot of my fellow HCM team member, GlassWalls, sporting the exclusive PS Blog belt buckle to post below. Be sure to come out tomorrow night and participate in the festivities or you will lose out on the opportunity to add these limited items to your collection.

Speaking of my buddy GlassWalls – As many of you hardcore Home-people know, he is heading up the Home Community Volunteer program, which is now accepting new candidates. He sent me this message just a few moments ago and asked that I pass along the good word…

Home is boring. Still takes too long to load. Sodium One was lagging/skipping for me. I visit the beach, walk around, OK….check out the swim store, the icons for items take forever to load, they finally do, notice that the SAME hat in each variety of color is $.99 EACH! RIDICULOUS!!, I quickly exit the store. I notice that EVERY single person I run into in Home barely plays games, they are usually trophy level 3’s or 4’s. I start to load the boat location, it takes too long and I exit Home.

I thought Home would have been something amazing. After a couple years of waiting, it just fails to impress or even excite me. I usually ask about bringing voice chat back, but I don’t even think that would make a difference anymore. I guess Home is just not for me.

I still find it funny people complain about Home. Its a free place, no one is charging people or forcing them to buy things.
But… people still complain how it doesnt have things they want, its boring, its slow, pout pout pout whine whine whine.

Home was meant as a place to meet gamers, sample games, take a break from playing. Your expecting ‘SecondLife’ for free… come on get realistic.

Home is a meeting ground a place to network with other gamers. So what if people spend more time inside it than playing games thats their choice. No reason to whine about them focusing in home as a way to socialize to each their own.

If you dont like the prices then DONT BUY IT… gawd
People act like a guns being put to their head I mean geez.
Home gives alot for free you can do no money needed.

You want to have a realistic voice in home and what happens in home. Then encourage them to go pay to use. Because your a guest in Home till you pay. Then your a customer with more power to your words.

Im glad to see musicality coming to home.. i heard alot of fun about it.

But :(
I agree too will we see FF13 costumes I want vanill…

I find it baffling that content and spaces are launched for TM that isn’t even announced yet there is nothing celebrating GoWIII.

I’m trying to think of ONE time that spaces and content actually got launched day and date with the game.

What is the issue with timing these things?

Will the new inFamous costumes include the promotional only reaper costume. I would really like to buy that costume because i have every promotional costume but the reaper costume. So please release the reaper costume for sale.

@ Kitty_Pyra

I find it funny people still complain about the complainers. boo-hoo.

So you are telling me I have to buy a private space, a hamster uniform, and a $.99 hat IN EACH COLOR before I can comment on MY perspective of Home? Thanks, but I will keep my real money and continue to comment on Home for FREE. Why would I spend money on something that I don’t see VALUE in?

Maybe if Home loaded faster, I would sped money.
Maybe if Home had voice chat, I would spend money.
Maybe if Home was more stable, I would spend money.
Maybe if Home actually attracted GAMERS and not ‘Second Life’ noobs, I would spend money.

Sorry, not going to buy all that crap week in and week out, AND THEN hope for those things to happen down the road. As I said, I was wrong waiting all this time, Home is NOT fo me.

Home is still too much peddling virtual crap and advertising swag.

If there were more games to do in there, more earned content from games we’re actually playing, and less obnoxious advertising screens screaming at us, they’d be on the right track.

Thank goodness for Sodium pointing in the right direction. PSHome needs to do more things like that to be relevant and interesting.

HELLO MODS!

There are MANY confused and lost people right now. Lost, because your “up to the minute” Twitter feeds are incorrect.

Some of us were at Central Plaza at 5:00pm AS ADVERTISED IN YOUR TWITTER FEED.
We went to several instances… there was NOTHING in any of them about the PS Blog Meet or any rewards.

In the end, we went to Theater #6… which is where everyone seems to be. It;s nearly 25m afterwards, and I have not received any rewards (although some people reportedly did).

Please correct your information – and get the rewards straightened out. We’d really really appreciate it.

Thank you.

We’d also appreciate it if some annoucement could be made theatre-wide as to what is going on.
