This Week in PlayStation Home: ModNation Racers Challenge, Assassin’s Creed II Personal Space, Fullmetal Alchemist, and More

Locust_Star's Avatar Posted by PlayStation Home Community Manager

Buckle your seat belts, Home-people! ModNation Racers — the upcoming kart racing extravaganza that allows you near-endless options in terms of designing and customizing your own characters, vehicles, and tracks — is barreling into PlayStation Home’s Media and Events space this week. Packed with interactive content, including the ModSpot Challenge game (and some truly awesome rewards), this special event space will only be live for a limited time. Be sure to log in to PlayStation Home this Thursday, April 29th, and check out this exclusive event before it disappears from the Navigator forever.

By popular demand, Ubisoft will be releasing another installment in the long line of Assassin’s Creed content in PlayStation Home this week. Finally you’ll be able to add an Assassin’s Creed II personal space (along with an assortment of ornate furniture items) to your collection. This gorgeous personal space transports its inhabitants to the water-lined “streets” of 15th Century Venice, and will be available in the Estates store come this Thursday, April 29th.

Attn: Anime fans. We will be airing a full-length episode of Fullmetal Alchemist this week. Head to the PlayStation Home Theater this weekend and watch as Edward and Alphonse search for a rumored stone that could amplify their alchemy and restore their broken bodies.

In other news, when you visit the Central Plaza kiosk this Thursday to pick up some of the latest and greatest goods for sale in PlayStation Home, you’ll notice three new icons that denote the category of content available for purchase. First is the “New” tile, which contains new virtual items published in any given week. Second is the “Featured” tile, which includes a diverse array of some of our most popular items. Lastly, we’ve created a “Community” tile, which includes some of the items we’ve created for you based upon direct feedback from our users over at the official PlayStation Home forums. This “Community” tile will be populated over the course of the coming months with new and legacy content — we appreciate your patience as we wade through the thousands of items created over the course of the last 15 months at the best of our most loyal and vocal community members (there are a LOT of items to choose from, that’s for sure!)

That’s a nice looking AC2 Personal space actually. I like how you left that in Ezio’s world.

So is the Modspot challenge only tomorrow? I’m currently without my PS3 and I probably won’t get it back until next week. I don’t mind not pariticipating in the challenge, it’s not really too important I’m just curious if I’ll get the chance to.

I can’t wait to try the “ModSpot Challenge” game and see what kind os rewards I can win! — Sounds like a pretty cool update. I’m happy to see ModNation Racer in Home!

That’s cool we’re getting the new Icons in the store. So will there be any new items in the “NEW” category for us this week?

    This week is not a big week for virtual items relative to some other weeks, but there will be plenty of “new” items from recent publishes available under this chip.

Those Home characters are HUGE!

Conrad_Max said:

April 28th, 10:27 am

I’m excited about the Community Tile. The update looks good, but the tile is intriguing.

i don’t get it, we are constantly forking out cash in HOME and we still don’t have features we’ve been asking for 3 years now, what are you guys doing with all that money?

imajinetion said:

April 28th, 10:29 am

Good update and another newsletter report to the masses on my end. Thank you! ^^

polo155 said:

@8 all 60gb’s are doomed eventually due to lead free soildering used on the mobo, when it heats and cools the solder cracks giving you the red flashing light.. aka hardware failure. or poorly aplied thermo paste. check the fourms.

Well..imust say HOME is interesting..im alil impressed by the Mod spot that going to be up..but very dissapointed about the limited time. This should be a permanant spot since its a PLAYSTATION XCLUSIVE as is LITTLEBIGPLANET.SONY should be on HOME devs should be working on ASAP on Xclusive game spaces!and also working on Voice chat and video and audio apps for PERSONAL SPACES..you heard L_Star :p Anywho..HOME is always being improved ..so keep up the good work!

just wondering if the tecmo bowl throwback will be getting released onto the network today.
i am curious because xbla has it for today and the wii had tecmo bowl a while ago. it would be nice to see an honest retro classic come out for the system today.

I was thinking of suggesting a Venice personal space in the suggestion thread of the forum so the AC2 space is perfect. I’ll be all over it come Thursday. Thank you!

Fly-boi_2009 said:

April 28th, 10:53 am

Locust.. can you please answer this.. Are you all working on the missing main features, like televisions, and working radios, trophy room/hall of fame.etc. ?? would be gratefull if you reply..

nYcFrEeWiLL82 said:

April 28th, 10:55 am

“SONY should be on HOME devs should be working on ASAP on Xclusive game spaces!”- what i meant to say was..that – SONY should be working on XCLUSIVE GAME HOME SPACES ASAP! sorry for the misunderstanding.

I really wish you all would update the mall, specifically the treads stores, because it’s been going on 2 months since the last update, and there really aren’t any fresh articles of clothing out, especially for the men. I’m not trying to be demanding, I would just like to see, more clothes; pref-ably fashionable clothes. The mall has been very stagnate. And this is just me personally but I don’t like all the big slouchy clothes for the men all the shirts are big, all the pants are either big or baggy… We need more metro clothes to cater to different peoples taste. The women have a plethora of different types and styles of clothes…. so should the men. Nonetheless, keep up the good work.

Great update.

How much is the personal space?

stardeth said:

April 28th, 11:14 am

AT LAST!!!! After the long wait, a personal space to purchase!! Okay, I know it was only 2 weeks, but a fella starts to jones after several weeks of multiple space introduction/reduction… and it looks schweeeeet!! lol

zKAPOWz said:

April 28th, 11:26 am

has the AC2 public space even been fixed?

my guess: no.

NoobianGod said:

April 28th, 11:27 am

Looking forward to checking out the MNR Space and picking up some prizes. Those Mod Furniture items look very cool.

Love FMA! Would love to see more from their franchise rather then just Theater Viewings.

Thanks and keep up the great work!

SIM’s 3 will kill HOME if paid content is the only thing HOME has to offer

Manifest37 said:

April 28th, 11:33 am

FULLMETAL ALCHEMIST!!!

Is it the original or the exquisitely constructed, FullMetal Alchemist: Brotherhood?

Fly-boi_2009 said:

April 28th, 11:36 am

SIMS 3 WILL MOST DEF KILL HOME..Because Home is missing the important features, pool table , games for personal spaces, public voice chat, tvs and radios.. Where is our MONEY GOING TO ??

Kid_Fleetfoot said:

April 28th, 11:49 am

I give 5 stars for the “new” “community” and other logos. ha ha ha, that cracks me up, me giving it 5 stars ;) Five stars to me for that.

Alchemist look like a nice space from the picture but I know nothing about it. We shall see.

redknight355 said:

April 28th, 11:52 am

Are any item’s being given away for FullMetal Alchemist? As in statue’s of Al & Ed, stirt’s, Ed’s jacket.How about the update for the Xi hub?

S-E-G said:

April 28th, 11:56 am

will the community items be free or will you be milking us from our ideas?

rafael_martines said:

April 28th, 12:00 pm

Fullmetal Alchemist Brotherhood?

Zarxce said:

April 28th, 12:11 pm

Huh, the random events with freebies are pretty much the only reason I ever log in to home. Guess I’ll be checking it out sometime later this week.

yukiboy23 said:

S-E-G has many good points…. also where those NHL jerseys at???

SOOPERGOOMAN187 said:

April 28th, 12:23 pm

I think it’s kinda a funny coincidence that the two Mod Nation Racers Statues in that picture up there look so much like ‘Marvin the Paranoid Android’ in The Hitch Hikers Guide To The Galaxy movie. Nice, That I will Buy. What’s the word on TV’s within Home. Any chance of that Vampire Full Suit coming to these shores?
Oh and can you check this Idea of Mine out?

nYcFrEeWiLL82 said:

April 28th, 12:33 pm

@28..I HIGHLY DOUBT THAT..SINCE HOME IS FREE AND SIMS ISNT..ALSO HOME DOES HAVE POOL TABLES..JUST BEING ABLE TO PLAY WOULD BE ALIL DIFFICULT.ALSO HOME HAS UPDATES ON GAMES AND MOVIES.THE SIMS IS MORE LIKE A RPG..HOME IS LIKE A COMMUNITY CENTER TO CONNECT AND MEET NEW PLAYERS.IVE MADE QUITE A FEW AMIGOS ON HOME..THANKS TO THE GAME SPACES ITS VERY EASY.THIS IS ALSO THE REASON WHY IM EMPHASIZING ON SONY WORKING ON XCLUSIVE GAMES ASAP :)

Fly-boi_2009 said:

April 28th, 12:42 pm

POOL TABLES FOR APARTMENTS.. AND OTHER GAMES, LIKE CHECKER BOARDS ETC.. ITS HARD GETTING A TABLE TO PLAY WITH FRIENDS, BECAUSE IT BE TO CROWRDED..AND THESE GAMES FOR APARTMENTS WILL MAKE THE APARTMENTS USEFUL TO VISIT WITH FRIENDS, SO WE CAN HAVE SOMETHING TO DO, BESIDES CHAT AND STARE AT EACH OTHER..

hardy_83 said:

April 28th, 12:47 pm

May I ask how much the personal space is?

I LOVE personal spaces, but I’ve never been a fan of how much they cost.

Thanks!

Fly-boi_2009 said:

April 28th, 12:59 pm

WHY ARE YALL KEEP MAKING THESE PERSONAL SPACES FOR..?? WITH NOTHING TO DO IN THEM ???

    Locust_Star said:

    April 28th, 2:20 pm

    How about tomorrow? That’s right – I just got word that we are releasing items for both titles tomorrow morning. Hows that for a quick response? ;)

Zezzler said:

April 28th, 1:11 pm

Does ModNation Racer have PS Home support and/or Home Rewards?

GreyWulf said:

April 28th, 1:28 pm

Not Sure if I missed all the new features but has sharing music and video in our personaly owned spaces on tvs and jukebox’s been added yet?

Been waiting for that promise since 2005 hope it is still comming would be devestating to learn that it will never happen…

SpyDudeFX said:

April 28th, 1:30 pm

LS, would all of the new tiles be accessible via the theater kiosk too? Hope so because I can’t load CP anymore.

SpyDudeFX said:

April 28th, 1:34 pm

Oh yeah, are we getting the new SodiumOne update tomorrow too?

    Locust_Star's Avatar

    Locust_Star said:

    April 28th, 2:21 pm

    Yes, there will be a Sodium update tomorrow. Details will be posted in MotD.

    Remember everyone: We publish so much content in Home that it is impossible for us to list it all in the Blog. This is why we keep a running list of all new content under the Latest Update tab in the Community section of your Menu Pad. Check it out tomorrow!
