PlayStation Home Update: Heavy Ink, inFAMOUS 2, Conspiracy, SOCAST and more

Locust_Star's Avatar Posted by Locust_Star on Jun 02, 2011 // PlayStation Home Community Manager

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.

Hello Locust_Star Can we get a “I survived the PSN Downtime” PS Home Shirt :) ?


+ 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!

Apparently the only place in the world where Tribal tattoos are still cool is in virtual reality.

+ agnugget on June 2nd, 2011 at 1:17 pm said:

when do we get the 100 free home items and new stuff.. also map packs for black ops


+ stardeth on June 2nd, 2011 at 1:39 pm said:

Any idea when the new item freeze bug will be fixed??? Not to be a pest, but I’ve PM’ed you about this in the forums before you locked us out of it, and numerous threads were created then later merged about this specific problem, with more being inflicted with this problem daily. Your “let’s ignore the problem and it’ll go away” attitude isn’t getting the job done. What would be the point of having a welcome back package for HOME, when soon nobody will even be able to get in there?


+ Busca-Cabezas on June 2nd, 2011 at 1:47 pm said:

WooT!!! WooT!!! Now this really feels like HOME! :P


+ Ms_HelloKittyNYC on June 2nd, 2011 at 1:57 pm said:

@53 Exactly….I guess when Everyone affected with this bug and no one can get on HOME and its a total ghost town they’ll fix it. Its getting ridiculous I cant even enjoy HOME anymore. FIX IT!!!!!

Ahh, I see… now my voicing a complaint is a problem… However, I don’t think I’ll be going away anytime soon, so it may behoove you, Glasswalls and Locust_Star, to provide your community with an answer to my question.


+ Chuckbait on June 2nd, 2011 at 5:18 pm said:

When will we be able to download the E3 Theater?

(Shouldn’t it be before Monday, so not everyone downloads it at once?)


+ stardeth on June 2nd, 2011 at 5:41 pm said:

@Chuckbait You can download it now. I just did.


+ Cage890 on June 2nd, 2011 at 6:00 pm said:

Great update guys, so amped for E3!! =D


+ Alternate_Larz on June 2nd, 2011 at 10:13 pm said:

Alright, don’t goof on me for not knowing this guys name, but I want a costume of the character with the wolf tattoo on his left forearm from Black Ops. I have the game, but really haven’t been able to enjoy it much with my crazy college schedule so I’m not entirely familiar with the names of the characters yet. That guys a B.A. Any possibilities of getting that? I had seen it on the UK server, did I miss out on it on the US server?


+ tonydamiani on June 3rd, 2011 at 12:55 am said:

I cant find the inFAMOUS 2 posters or clothing :(


+ MrDaBucket on June 3rd, 2011 at 8:33 am said:

The SOCAST seems interesting.
It reminds me of a Killzone podcast I know of called Killzone Unit. If you guys would be interested, I’m sure they’d do a Home show. They love Home.

I’m having a problem everytime I try to log into ps home my system keeps freezing once the “you have recieved a reward” pops up. This first started when I went into the mansion grage when I recieved an item then it froze. Can anyone help? It seams that every time I try to get the mansion grage reward items it freezes my system.

+ WHO_STOLE_MYCAKE on June 14th, 2011 at 1:24 am said:

Yeah I agree with these guys above me, I texted the codes last week and I didn’t get my sprint shoes the text I got back said error or something


+ WHO_STOLE_MYCAKE on June 14th, 2011 at 1:32 am said:

Lol the Sony devs boasted onehundred different virtual items on Home, uh what lol? I think most were just free minigames or whatever for your virtual space which I don’t care about at all. Only personal space I have is my default harbor studio personal spaces seem like a waste of money.

    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.
