Home Mansion Expands, New PixelJunk Content Arrives + Weekly Update

GlassWalls's Avatar + Posted by GlassWalls on Mar 02, 2011 // PlayStation Home Community Specialist

This Thursday, March 3rd, PlayStation Home welcomes the second expansion to the Home Mansion. This week, everyone will be able to get their hands on the Second Floor with Game Room. Like the previous parts of the Mansion, it comes complete with its own gift machine, ready to hook up your friends with a handful of glittering gold items. Unique to this floor, it comes with its own pool table and dart game.

Landing the same week as PixelJunk Shooters 2 on PSN, PixelJunk is bringing new content to Home related to sister titles, PixelJunk Monsters and PixelJunk Racers. Included are a variety of fun racecar suits for men and trackside attire for the ladies, and to decorate your pad Monster-style, there are more than twenty furniture items, including cute miniature trees and various miniature characters from the game. Head to the PixelJunk Home space tomorrow to check it all out.


From our own collections, this week we bring several wild outfits. Whether you’re into Mech, Battlesuits, or Desert-style camo, you’re bound to want these.

PlayStation Home: Lockwood Formal

PlayStation Home: Lockwood Formal Acsessory

Lockwood is introducing a new brand line. Figment is about being able to stride confidently into any party, room or restaurant knowing you look great. But most of all, Figment is about imagination and the ability to combine separates in ways you hadn’t considered before to produce even more incredible looks and outfits. You may find Figment in the Mall, starting tomorrow.

PlayStation Home: female jersey PlayStation Home: jersey

And last but not least, the Home Community Theater is being updated this Thursday with a couple new videos. First up is HipHopGamer’s newest video, where he enthusiastically reviews Killzone 3. If you stick around for the whole episode, you’ll be granted some blinged-out swag that represent the way only HipHopGamer could before. Next up, Gamer Indepth’s own Doc brings his latest episode where he and Sami interview Luge on her experiences at the record breaking LittleBigPlanet Guinness Book of World Records event in New York City.

See you in Home!

I’ve recently found out that there are people on PlayStation Home who are “freeze glitching” when you do it, it freezes everyone around you. One of the steps includes doing the “coin toss command”. I was at playground in a full server and almost everyone got booted, it also causes a lot of lag. This needs to be fixed or patched and the “coin toss command” should be removed, it’s useless anyway. The “freeze glitch” is ruining PlayStation Home and it’s messing up my PS3!!! D:<

You might catch HipHopGamer himself as well as Austin and Daniel from LittleBigPodcast, and the boys from Urgent Fury, not to mention all the crew from Gamer Indepth. They all are known to hang out in the Community Theater from time to time. If you bump into any of them, be sure to say, “Hello!”

    Anime Battle Suits 1 and 2, Desert Marauder and Smoke Jumper Bundles are sets of individual pieces. The Mech Suit Outfit is a full outfit of locked together parts. Basically, the “Bundles” = sets of individual pieces, and “Outfit” = a single body suit that is locked together.

    + GlassWalls on March 2nd, 2011 at 3:54 pm said:

    Actually it’s the second, since the first part released is not an expansion. The First Floor is not an expansion, since it was the first. Think of it like you’re counting, starting from zero. Make sense?

Unless you have a female avatar, in which case you’re bound to be disappointed. Only one of the four bundles is available for females. Weak.

    Actually, “anime” is such a broad term, it does apply to these outfits. If you look WAY back into anime comic history, you might find similar styles shown here. The same applies to the Anime Style personal space already available in Home—it’s stylized to look like it came right off the pages of comic book or graphic novel.

Why is the Konami dress changed? I bought it cos it looked so fancy and luxious, a beautiful bergundy and rich brown with lots of detail. When I put it on the other day I saw it`s now a plain, drab brown with no details whatsoever, and the feet have turned silver and really weird, it used to be black shoes under there. Please fix it back,it`s poor service to sell your customers something then change the way it looks after they`ve bought it. Fix it and the girls mummy costume from Codeglue, or give me my money back. I`m serious, you sold me broken stuff >:(

And the people that are freeze glitching Home should be given a life ban, I kept getting hit by those lag bombs and as a result both Home and my HDD got corrupted. I could`ve lost my sytem, so this shouldn`t be treated lightly! Home Team you could lose ALL of your customers cos these idiots are breaking all our systems!

To begin with, arrogance aside…ok update guys, moving on, the suits look astonishing, I am a female n I’m considering buying the male suit from Lockwood n the other anime ones.
Dear Glassy Glass,
“Basically, the “Bundles” = sets of individual pieces, and “Outfit” = a single body suit that is locked together”.
correct me if I am mistaken, but nuh uh to ma knowlesge ive always called outfits sets that are composed of different pieces n as was arranged can also be separated n matched with other clothes.
N e ways Glassy I was wondering if when I buys the mansion’s floors n infinity pool..will it amount to the same total disregarding the order i bought ‘em in?
TY <3, ur bff Lyn :) xoxo

    + GlassWalls on March 2nd, 2011 at 5:14 pm said:

    I just outlined what to expect in Home, particularly for the sets of looks shown in today’s video. It’s all nomenclature, but in Home-speak, an “outfit” specifically refers to more than one virtual clothing item that is locked to another in the Wardrobe, rather than be an individual part. It’s often three to five parts, but can occasionally be just two. Whenever it’s less than five, it can still be mixed and matched with the remaining available body parts.

    As for purchasing the Mansion in a different order than they were released, if you buy all 4 parts (First Floor, Infinity Pool, Second Floor with Game Room, and the Garage), it will be the same total price in the end. Down the road, the pricing structure may change, for as for now that is the situation.

Hey GlassWalls

I hear you guys really want the old Home users to give home another chance?

how about this allow users to use the Home avatars as PSN avatars.
for example Home users could use a “photobooth” to either take full body pic or zoomed in head shot which will then become the users PSN avatar.

With this new PSN avatar friends that are non Home users will become curious as to where this user got this new avatar knowing that the PSN store does not have it for sale.

Resulting in a couple message exchanges
in the end this non Home user will most likely try out this “avatar Photobooth”

free publicity is good publicity?

To 42 nYcFrEeWiLL82,

We are able to add two more active items to each section of the Mansion, including the Second Floor. Thus, we can add two active item games. Additionally, there are some games that are not active items. And, if we have the arcade cabinets from the Namco Museum (or any other arcade cabinet) that increases the games that we are able to have on the Second Floor.

Please take into account that since each section is fully furnished, we can add 50 items, plus two active items, to fill up each space. We also get five gifts for ourselves per section. This means that for the whole Mansion, fully furnished, we can add 200 items plus 8 active items. We get 20 gifts (actually 22) and the ability to give them to millions of people. If these items weren’t available in the Mansion, they would sell in the Mall for even more money.

We basically have a great deal going here. But of course, it’s just a matter of perspective and opinion.

As for our own videos and music, I believe we will get them eventually. It’s all a matter of patience, understanding the issues and allowing Home to continue growing. They will come. Hopefully you will be here to enjoy it with us.

It is highly recommended, and encouraged, to use the report option that we have in Home when experiencing disruptions. Press the SELECT button and then scroll to the report option. Follow the instructions.

If reporting from Home is not an option, due to freezing or being kicked, you can send a report to the Home Moderators by going to http://community.us.playstation.com/people/HomeForumMods, or typing in HomeForumMods when sending a PM. Send them the details and any other information needed to take care of the problem.
