You want your PlayStation Home weekly content update? You got it!

New Heavy Ink tattoos are now on the shelves of the PlayStation Home Mall. Choose from seven different tribal designs (for both male and female avatars). All of the tattoos cover the back, chest arms and legs for maximum inkage! Three of the tattoos have striking designs with glowing accents: Demon’s Rage, Hell Hound and Hydra’s Hex.

Jet Set Games has just released new Conspiracy items – including the vintage 2-way wrist radio (which allows you to receive secret messages through the animated talking face), the hilarious “I Have No…” t-shirt line, the saucy Pixelated Identity Protection items, and the Dastardly Disguise pack. Check ‘em out!

PlayStation Home: Dastardly
PlayStation Home: Vintage Communicator

PlayStation Home: I have NOPlayStation Home: Pixelated

Those of you who are gearing up for the release of inFAMOUS 2 next week can pick up special inFAMOUS 2 clothing and furniture items today. And speaking of pulse-pounding action and adventure, be sure to pick up our new line of male and female Solider, Armed Vigilante, Blackhawk, and Rhino costumes (and while you are at it, be sure to stock up on gasmasks and bulletproof vests, also available this week in the PlayStation Home Mall). Of course, don’t forget to swing by the Sodium store to pick up the new Lockwood furniture items. Afterwards, head to the Threads and Furniture stores to stock up on the new Dragon’s Lair clothing and furniture items – just in time for the release of Dragon’s Lair II on PSN!

When you are strolling through PlayStation Home this week, be sure to keep an eye out for the Sprint posters. Find all three and you can get cool gear for your avatar. Just text the poster codes to 99158 and walk away with sweet Sprint sneakers.

    Additional Sodium 2 news is coming very shortly, including release date.

    There are no Duke Nukem items currently scheduled to be released in Home. But if that changes you can rest assured that we’ll let you know here in the blog.

This is 6 weeks worth of Home content? Or is it 1 week with Home getting multiple updates a week ala the PS Stores to catch up?

    + Locust_Star on June 2nd, 2011 at 10:28 am said:

    Home will be resuming our regular publishing schedule (every Thursday) effective now. The content that has been developed over the course of the last 6 weeks will not be released all at once but rather it will be staggered out over the weeks to come. We realize that this week’s publish appears to skew towards virtual items, but please note that this publish also includes the virtual E3 Booth (which will be opened on Tues at 12pm PT) and the E3 Theater, so the amount of content made available this week is actually relatively large.

Are we going to be able to watch E3 live in like our homes, like the Mansion, and the Yacht, and the Hollywood Hills House?

    You will have to visit the E3 Theater in order to watch the live stream.

Seems to me that sony is rushing to satisfy their customers, which they’re failing at. I think they should take their time to fully accomplish it.

If you’re getting booted out of Home it’s not Sony’s fault! There are waaaay too many people trying to log in and are flooding the servers. Those of you who are crossing servers and going to other regions where you don’t belong in like Euros getting on USA’s server stay the EFF in your own region until this is worked out. Your just gonna make it take longer.

I know I don’t have the best grammatical skills in the world but could some of us at least try to keep up the quality control of the English language. I don’t really need to be told, “it gonn’ this” or “it gonn’ that”! Tooo many street corner philosophers!!!

+ echogridlock on June 2nd, 2011 at 10:44 am said:

Why bother?

Home as it is now, should be overhauled or scraped all together.

When I log in and select a space I feel like I’m back in the 90s, early 00s selecting a chat room. Not to mention the boxed in feeling of any given space. Anybody ever have to take a shoe box and make a 3D mural as an art project in their early childhood. Seriously, that’s what Home is, a series of decorated shoe boxes with the same you can look but not touch guidelines. Except for those great mini games that you play a few times and forget about an hour latter. (Not including Sodium) I don’t feel that there is a community anymore just your diehards and newbies who don’t know any better, yet. You know what would be truly ground breaking in Home? A new space without a commerce point!

It is as they say though you get what you paid for.

I would gladly pay a subscription of $5 to $10 dollars for Home if it was overhauled with better spaces to EXPLORE, (not run around in circles) some sort of game based theme/storyline, better web integration and premium video services for everyone not just for people who buy a personal space. Dynamic interactive AI would be amazing!
