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

I think this is a great update. I’ve been wondering what the Dead Nation space that’s been listed in our Navigator would be. Glad to see it will come with rewards. Also I personally love the home pets. I’ve got all of them so far, but now my collection will almost double it seems.

Any chance of any freebies or something similar to what you guys did last Valentine’s Day? There was the photo booth in the Mall with the cupid outfit rewards & the free items from the Mall stores (heart shaped box of chocolate, bow and arrow ornament, etc).

I really like the Idea of The Dead Nation Space Because I am a Player and Fan. It looks like Ndreams Did a good job, and I heard loot might have helped as well. Yet I agree with the statement that Dead nation gets a HOME space before it gets Voice Chat Update. I know that Housemarque didn’t really develop the space if Ndreams is the one who did it, so Why did Housemarque make a Voice Chat update yet? And I know Mr.Locust_Star and Mr. Glasswalls that you have no control over that, yet maybe you can ask the Developers of the Game for us and give us an answer?

Eh, this is my first time posting here, even though I’ve been using Home over a year, and I just wanted to ask.. Will we ever see the return of that rainy Central Plaza we had for a week in fall? It was hands down the best plaza yet, and I’d really like to see it again…

Hey Glass,
Great job by you & the Home Team!! The update looks quite good.
The Dead Nation space seems pretty awesome, you know if there will be any unlockable (free) rewards for there and the updated Novus Prime?
Also, do you know if the Ford Sync building will be open when the plaza returns to normal, or was it just there for advertisement?

Alright home alright, no more of my money. :/ Those novus prime items are “cool” and all, but i dont need the bloody bundle. i have never and WILL NEVER use a female avatar on home so WHY would i need those items as well. Riddle me that glasswalls. BTW, the killzone jetpack >_> it just transerves the X plane. Why not the y? sure youd have to put a roof or a wall on top of all the public spaces, but im sure being able to go UP in the air will encourage more people to get jetpacks and etc etc…. oh and if you havent already, look at nycfreewills comment. they are all AWESOME ideas. especially if paintball and lazer tag or war games could be done out in public. turned on just like pvp is turned on in DC Universe. READ UP HOME MANAGEMENT TEAM. youve got alot of work to do and ALOT of good ideas from your loyal supporters. Afterall, without us? home would just be alot of empy space for mods and guides to hang out.

Why is it after I purchased the Dead Nation Zombie Companion it doesn’t show up on my Purchase List or on any list actually and when I go to the store page again it tells me this item isn’t available yet my money is already gone?

I was looking forward to the Blue Toad costume. I logged onto Home all happy…then saw it was ONLY FOR GUYS!? Oh, girls can dress as the male dog but we can`t dress as a toad? I was happy to see the moose head come out couple months ago, being canadian, but the female moose head is all wrong too. Female moose DON`T HAVE ANTLERS. I refused to buy it cos of that. Did you guys fail science and biology classes?

Instead of pampering the guys and giving them exclusive costumes, patch Home. Fix the crashing problems, and the broken costumes we paid for. People have missing pieces to their outfits and would like them back, and the female mummy costume by Codeglue is STILL BROKEN! If you won`t fix the costume issues, then give us our money back! You`re gonna start losing customers.

I stopped spending on home, I was blowing alot of real cash on it. BUT too many ignored questions about one simple to thing. The Grass Couch for Canada- in the golf room – you wan’t to hate Canadians and hold back items because of nationality well we don’t need to love home or spread love for home. it’s my money and I’ll interact with my PSN friends on facebook.
sorry you hate our flag.
bye.
