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.

Home needs some sort of MMO integration. There’s no reason to play it besides sitting around and talking to people. If everything you could do in the game lead to a personal level with rewards, I’m sure I (and many others) would play it a lot more.

Hi Sony,

I have been waiting for a lil more than 10 hours now, a few suggestions from your paying customers:

1. some way to inform us how long you need for the maintenance – countdown timer etc

2. get another server or something so less downtime is needed during updates

3. try not to perform amazing massive update like this as it gives us the feeling that something is unable to handle the load

Try to understand that our time is as much appreciated as your effort to bring us awesome contents. ^.^
