He’s one of the most iconic villains in the history of video games, and this week he appears in PlayStation Home courtesy of our friends over at Konami. That’s right – Red Pyramid (a.k.a. “Pyramid Head”) virtual items are coming to you just in time for Halloween. And that’s not all – girls can pick up the grotesque Bubble Head Nurse costume (from Silent Hill 2) as well as a female version of the Saw franchise mascot, Billy the Puppet, from the PlayStation Home Mall come this Thursday, October 28th.

Continuing our Halloween celebration in Central Plaza, an updated version of the Lord Pumpkinhead game is being released this week. Be sure to log in to PlayStation Home on Thursday to play the Lord Pumpkinhead game and unlock tons of exclusive rewards.


After you are done playing the Lord Pumpkinhead game, head on over to the Central Plaza kiosk to pick up two special gifts that we are making available to you, the PlayStation Home community, as a sign of thanks for your ongoing support. Guys will be able to pick up the “Moonslayer Sword” while girls will be able to add the “Shadowpiercer Weapon” to their inventories free-of-charge through Halloween night. Take advantage of this special Halloween offer by logging into PlayStation Home and visiting the Central Plaza kiosk before Monday, November 1st.

In other Halloween-related news, Codeglue releases some super spooky clothing items this week (a fantastic Mummy costume and the gruesome “Bone shirt”) along with some truly horrific furniture items for your personal space (like the Skull Throne and Guillotine – pictured below).

The LucasArts store receives a massive update this week with four new costumes from the recently-released Star Wars: The Force Unleashed II – including the dual-lightsaber wielding Starkiller, Rahm Kota, Imperial Jump Trooper, and the all-new Terror Trooper (dual lightsabers are also available separately). Visit the PlayStation Home Mall this Thursday to pick up these items along with the veritable ton of other Star Wars items currently available from LucasArts.

Also releasing this week are the newest addition to the long line of PlayStation Home original costumes (such as the female “Red Dragon” outfit and the male “Mechanical Abomination” suit) along with three amazing new active items – “Johnny the Mysterious Doll”, the “Magic Cauldron” and the “Miniature Dragon” companion for your personal space. Check ‘em out!

You asked for it, so we’re bringing it to you: The mega-popular Hudson Gate and Dolphy Room are being updated this week with more items as well as some changes and optimizations to the Dolphy game!

Speaking of popular games, Lockwood Publishing are excited to announce that over a million gamers have played through Sodium! As a token of appreciation they’re offering a selection of fine gifts and offers to the whole PlayStation Home community. Whether you’re a battle-hardened tank pilot or expert bartender there’s something for you this week. Head to the Sodium Hub this week for a golden “Thank You” reward, additional earnings for Sodium bartenders, extended free-access to the Sodium Salt Shooter, and even discounted Pilots Jackets!

See you in Home!

Will there be upgrades to CP for Halloween or just the minigame? I ask because on the forum, there’s 60% of people that have voted that are very dissatisfied with the current Halloween setup. Part of this appears to be being fixed with the improvement of the Lord Pumpkinhead game. But another part of it also spans into the look and feel of CP. Anything to fix this major dissatisfaction rate?

On another note, it’s good to see Lockwood keeping tabs on Sodium One. Can we expect to see the hinted at Sodium Two soon or new unlockable apartments?

    Hi TheUndertaker85,

    The updates to the game will address the issues reported to the HCM staff regarding users being unable to enter/play the game. No changes will be made to the weather/time of day in CP.

    Best,

How about that Netflix streaming in Home rumor/suggestion I read about?

    No new personal spaces tomorrow. However, the Zombie Deadquarters is available from the Estates store, and is about as creepy of a personal space as I can imagine (it even grants you and your friends free zombie costumes upon entry).

Also Locust you may have noticed that there is a lot of discussion on the PlayStation Home forums about the EA Sports Complex. Can you please reveal any information as to when we might be able to expect the complex spaces to return back to the Navigator.

There are a ton of poker players especially who are very distraught about the loss of their favorite game.

    There are no updates to share at this time. We recognize that people are eager for this space to return and I can assure you that we are doing what we can to make that so.

Tried to play the game at Central Plaza, but I was often timed out because the service was unavailable (I MEAN F**KING! OFTEN!!!)… Can you please fix it or to have it available for one more week after this week? I am quite frustrated that the service is not available… PLEASE FIX IT!

Can we get an Active Item increase?

Now with all these Active Item’s coming to Home…

2 Active Item’s is not enough… Can we up it to at least 5?

Thanks.

PS. I got the Zombie Deadquarters last year and it is really nice. And Nice Zombie Costume as well. So if anyone hasn’t gotten that yet do so it’s a great personal space!

Home team,
Thanks for fixing the pumpkin game before it was too late, Home team! (Really, that was sincerity, not sarcasm!)

I’m so glad we’re finally getting the Hudson update too. I’ve been looking forward to it ever since I heard about the star track, animated skins and new unlockables from Japan’s update. Any word on when North America will be getting more of the awesome Irem updates Japan has?

And congrats to all 1 million+ of the Sodium players! Next round of vetoxade is on me!

<3,
Stephie

PS: Please keep Johnny the Mysterious Doll out of all of my personal spaces. He totally creeps me out already! :O

I’m so happy for a Pumpkinhead game update. I managed to get in once by sheer luck and loved it. I was trying to help my sister get prizes for her avatar but couldn’t and was worried the even was one week only.

I don’t know what the issue with the game was, but I really hope you guys were able to take care of the glitch that many inconsiderate Home users were exploiting this past week: Walking on the Central Plaza Fountain.

Obviously that shouldn’t be done, but I read multiple articles/forums online last week that said that only made the issues with the Lord Pumpkinhead game worse, preventing it from playing at all. I tried reasoning with these people, and they just refused to leave the fountain, and made the situation worse by showing other users how to exploit the glitch and just camp out on the fountain.

I’m really digging the events & rewards Home has been dishing out in the past months, they’ve pulled me back in to utilizing this part of my PS3.

I eagerly await the updated Lord Pumpkinhead tomorrow, and hopefully won’t have such a Home-related headache this week.

Hope you guys have a just as awesome Halloween as you have been providing us with.

Guys get Pyramid Head, I`m so jealous. Oh well, I hope this “Red Dragon” outfit for girls looks as cool as it sounds. Is there a pic? I`m hoping it`s actually a dragon costume, with dragon head/mask. Skimpy clothes just asks for more harrassment from guys, and we already get enough of that, thank you. The doll looks creepy, I might actually get that one, and that`s awesome of you guys to give us free swords(they ARE free, right?).

And I`m also glad you`re looking into fixing the Pumpkin game in CP as it`s really unfair that 95% of the Home population can`t get in. After a full week just trying to play ONCE, I`d finally given up, but if it does get fixed this time, I might try again.

We are in need of a serious IREM update. Sea Side of Memories & IREM Square should both be updated to the way Japan currently has they’re spaces and we should also get the other 4 spaces IREM has in Japan. We also need new IREM clothing they have so much to offer. As far as they’re games go we should get those in our PS Store like Spelunker and they’re older PS1 titles. None of the games have to be dubbed just put em under our Japanese imports in the PS Store.

Hi Sackfolk, at around 08:00am BSTon the 27th of October we will be taking the LittleBigPlanet servers offline for approximately 24 hours.In this time we will be fixing the servers up with lots of new technology to make them ready for both LittleBigPlanet 2, and the features that will be available on LBP.me.During this time, you will be unable to access any of the Community levels, or play online.When the servers come online again, you may notice one or two small differences, but most things should remain largely the same and the fun shall resume!Sorry about that, hopefully it won’t be too inconvenient for you all.Mm
