Dead Nation in PlayStation Home

Dead Nation in PlayStation Home

Beginning this Thursday, February 3rd, PlayStation Home will serve as a respite to the battle-hardened survivors of the zombie apocalypse known as Dead Nation – the explosive action-shooter now available exclusively on the PlayStation Network. The Dead Nation “Safe House” is one of the last bastions of humanity in a world ravaged by a deadly virus that has turned the majority of mankind into a sweeping horde of brain-thirsty zombies. Complete with an improvised shooting range, the Dead Nation “Safe House” is the perfect retreat for you and the remaining pocket of survivors to recoup and reload. Hone your skills in this brand-new game space by taking out as many zombie targets as you can, placing on the leaderboard and demonstrating your undead-slaying abilities. Just remember to always aim for the brain.

NovusPrime: Codebreaker

Novus PrimeHellfire Games’ hit sci-fi space shooter – receives an update this week. Earth Fleet scouts have reported sightings of very large fighter ships among the enemy armada. Evidence also suggests that all bot vessels are being outfitted with new weapons. In response, a new shipment of gear is arriving at Novus Prime. The commercially-built fighter ship known as the Codebreaker leads the new arrivals. Outfitted with the latest in defensive shielding technology, the Codebreaker disrupts nearby AI systems, turning bot ships into allies. A specialized interface helmet is included, which may be worn at any time.

NovusPrime: Ion Cannons

New weapon technology: Capable of dealing out massive damage, the Ion Beam is a turret-mounted cannon that fires upon the turret’s target for as long as the fire button is held. Once the beam connects, it takes a few seconds to reach the maximum damage potential. If you buy the Ion Beam you also get the Ion Blaster Cannons. Slip these cannons over your arms and feel the power of a thousand suns!

NovusPrime: Jetpack boots

Looking to experience the ultimate freedom? Now you can with the Zero-gravity Simulator jet pack! With this on your back, you can float freely throughout the space station. And if you want an extra speed boost, grab a pair of Propulsion Boots. The Propulsion Boots also include the Turbo-Matrix Speed Booster which can be equipped to a ship’s upgrade slot to significantly increase its top speed.

NovusPrime: Databot

Two new companions are now available! Say hello to DataBot Jr., a highly-portable companion bot that hovers over all terrain, following diligently as your faithful pal. It also fits into most overhead storage compartments.

NovusPrime: RogueMech

These Rogue Mech Suits were recovered from an abandoned outpost that was believed to be operated by space pirates. They are fully operational and should not require oil changes for at least 3,000 miles.

Blue Toad Murder Files in PlayStation Home

    LOL! Did you notice last week’s variety of ladies’ socks and stockings? The ability to just add socks to various shoes is not here, as you know, but Lockwood is bringing you more options anyway.

Are the arm blasters animated in some way?

And if so, is it limited to just the novus space or can they be used throughout Home? They actually look pretty cool IMO.

    + GlassWalls on February 2nd, 2011 at 2:19 pm said:

    Amazon will be sending out the codes around the date that Killzone 3 ships.

Decent looking update, but anything new on the Mansion?

    + GlassWalls on February 2nd, 2011 at 1:41 pm said:

    You can bet that starting tomorrow, you can ask one of the friendly, neighborhood Home Community Volunteers for a tour of the Infinity Pool (the second release of the Mansion).

When will the Subway and Slurpee Codes work for Home?

It seems people are getting Subway Codes for Home but there not working yet?

What’s the deal on these?

    + GlassWalls on February 2nd, 2011 at 2:38 pm said:

    The Subway codes should work starting on tomorrow, February 3rd, so try again in the morning. The Slurpee codes have not been released to the public yet.


+ DCS-Tekken on February 2nd, 2011 at 1:51 pm said:

    Keep your eyes on 2 places: our Wednesday blog posts and in Home!

Konami should be generous during events. The soccer one last time only gave an extra 14 pts every 10 min or so. Unless you’re awesome at DDR, it just takes way too long to earn 25k.

    I know I’m not a DDR super star, but I know several people who are. There’s always a balance to be found in making the game challenging enough for the pros and still fun for everyone else. I suggest practicing so increase your rate of gaining points, and in the meantime having a great time doing it.

They’re is problem with the Slurpee code! I didn’t get a code, and yet it sold out?! Maybe is a bug!?

+ SpyDudeFX on February 2nd, 2011 at 2:07 pm said:

Pretty big update tomorrow, looking forward to the new Novus Prime content and some of the V-day stuff looks cool.


+ CD6405 on February 2nd, 2011 at 2:08 pm said:

+ BigFreezy1975 on February 2nd, 2011 at 2:14 pm said:
