Huge Update to PlayStation Home Mall – More Than 100 New Items!

Locust_Star's Avatar + Posted by Locust_Star on Mar 23, 2011 // PlayStation Home Community Manager

PlayStation Home collectors will be treated to a massive content update this Thursday, March 24th, when a ton of new items hit the shelves in the PlayStation Home Mall – we’re talking more than 100 new items this week alone. Don’t believe me? Here’s a quick look at some of the latest and greatest virtual items to hit the streets of PlayStation Home.

Heavy Water expands their line of Heavy Pets with their new Peeps collection. From companions to active items and furniture for your personal spaces, these unique items are available in multiple bundles including the “Super Peep Pack” which gives you all 10 Peeps at a price that simply can’t be beat. Check out this video for a look at the new Heavy Water Peeps.

Heavy Water assures us that plenty of new Heavy Pets items will be made available in the near future – stay in the loop by visiting www.heavy-pets.com. And if you have any comments, ideas, or requests you’d like to share with the team, go ahead and drop them an email at communityinput@heavy-pets.com.

Fan favorites nDreams bring more awesome content into the ever-evolving world of PlayStation Home this week with their new Funksters ’74 line of virtual items. This new range of retro and utterly funktastic clothing items includes two limited edition outfits. And for those of you that want to have the coolest pad imaginable, nDreams has expanded their Funksters ’74 line to include groovy 70’s Furniture and 70’s Shag Carpet bundles.

Home: Funkster 74

Also available this week from nDreams is the new Lil’ Reaper companion. This remorseless, unforgiving creature has one goal: to drag you into the abyss from whence it came. But until the day of reckoning comes, why not show him off to all your friends? Because, let’s face it, the Lil’ Reaper is pretty cool…

Home: Lil Reaper

This week sees the Lockwood formal wear collection growing with more fashionable items like the exquisite men’s Chinese jacket and the silk Cheongsam dress, complemented by a decorative fan – also available in value packs.

Home: Lockwood

The mega-popular Lockwood Gift Machine will be available as an automatic reward to all players that enter Lockwood spaces (like the Sodium Hub) come this Thursday, March 24th – just check your inventory! Lockwood has also taken the time to adjust the Gift Machine workings, making it even more efficient. If you’ve had a gift sent your way and haven’t been able to receive it, you’ll surely find it heading your way with the latest version of the Lockwood Gift Machine!

More Blue Toad Murder Files furniture items are heading your way this week, including the Miniature Toy Collection, the Animal Furniture Collection, and – brace yourself – the Collector’s Collection (how meta!). The full range of 20 new items includes: Sheep Chair, Blue Toad Chair (also available in gold), Blue Toad Rug, Blue Toad Table, Cow Sofa, Grand Piano, Miniature Toy Cars, Buses, Tractors and Trains, Vintage Car Seat, Red Tractor Seat, Green Train Sofa, ‘Gold’ Blue Toad Light, Ornate Little Riddle Painting, Vintage Camera, Magnifying Glass Wall Art and Surf Board Backdrop (for more detailed descriptions visit bluetoadmurderfiles.co.uk).

THQ brings brand new items from some of their hottest games into PlayStation Home this week. Visit the PlayStation Home Mall this Thursday to pick up the Homefront clothing and furniture items (including RC Recon and Assault drones), the Red Faction: Guerilla Marauder suit, and the Saints Row 2 “Hot Dog” and “Flashy” clothes!

Conspiracy – the PlayStation Home exclusive action/espionage game – receives yet another update this week, with some truly awesome new clothing, furniture, and companion items (like this limited-edition Mark IV Interceptor Bot).

Home: Conspiracy

One of America’s coolest film festivals – the Disposable Film Festival – will be sharing the top videos of 2011 with you the very same evening as the real-world finals event occurs at the Castro Theater in San Francisco. Join us on Thursday, March 24th in the PlayStation Home Theater to watch some of the best short films made on everyday equipment like cell phones and other inexpensive video capture devices. Then, log in to Twitter and send a tweet that calls out your favorite video before 12:00am PT (3:00am ET) on Sunday, March 27th and help the Disposable Film Festival select the winner of the exclusive PlayStation Home Audience Choice Award! For more details on how to participate, click here.

This week in the PlayStation Home Community Theater, Hip Hop Gamer reviews Kontrol Freek’s analog stick add-ons and then sits down with Yakuza 4 Community Manager, Aaron, and ends up giving him a surprise he’ll never forget. Next up, HomeCast Rewind looks at the latest updates in PlayStation Home – including February’s hottest items!

Finally, be sure to head to the kiosk in Central Plaza this Thursday, where over 100 of our top virtual items can be found with their prices slashed to a mere fraction of their original cost. Be sure to take advantage of this special deal while it’s still available – these items won’t be priced this low for very long…

See you in Home!

Cool update.. I like when we get a lot of mall items, but it doesn’t excite me much since probably all of it is costly. Is that a Conspiracy arcade in that picture?

Awsome Update, especially the lil reaper companion. I wanted to ask a question on the new Aurora public space. When will we be able to play the other games such as the pirate shooting game or the other ones previewed in the public space. Really liking the artistic design in the space.

Are these 100 brand new items actual clothing pieces? Not costumes or $5.99 exclusives? I mean, the fashion in Threads hasn’t updated since the ’80s…haha.

Amazing!!! There’s so many new items to purchase that many people don’t know where to start! I enjoyed Dragon’s Green and The Midways 1 & 2, by the way. Any info on new exciting additions to Dragon’s Green and something new from Mass Media? It would be even more exciting if we knew what new additions they’re working on. I can already imagine more new holes, new challenges, new obstacles, new minigames, new prizes, and much more!! I like playing those games!

When are we gonna get our “mini” lights back that you stole from us???? Cuase I remember you saying “I’ll look into it”. I don’t beleive you did, cuase we never got any kind of update on it. and there alot of people who mising it, not just me and my son. Way I see it, We need a new home team, None of you care about what idems we want or what we missing. and in the past month. You been releaseing stuff that no one wants or asked for.

How about giving us the TV’s and stereos we was promised in 07, When home was first showed off a GDC.

And if you gonna do a 70′s furniture bundle, It better have a spool table in it. And the furniture should be put in the store seprately too. So we can buy what we want.

And you really need to answer your messages on PSN && the forums when someone pm’s you. I messages you & Glaswalls in 09 over something in home and never got any reply. And you call yourself a Community Manager. And tell us, contact us if you need help or need to report a bug or something. LOL, what a joke.

Easter bunny costumes that hop, from EU? Konami werewolf costume(for guys AND girls)? Dragon costumes?

I was hoping they might be in the 100 item update but once again they aren`t there. *sigh* I grow tired of asking every week, but you shan`t get rid of me. I will keep asking until all 3 are there.

So, I won`t be spending money on Home tomorrow UNLESS the queen outfit`s price gets cut, cos I`ve been eyeing it but don`t want to spend $5.99 on one outfit, that costs more than a personal space and you get less for it. You`ve been getting too expensive lately, what with $6-$10 outfits, $15 personal spaces($35 for the mansion altogether), and having to pay to play any games now :/
