Finally, our friends over at SOCAST return with their second episode, where the FPS gamer meme “Juggernaut” makes a visit.

Last, but certainly not least: When you log in to PlayStation Home this Thursday you will be prompted to download our latest client update – v1.5.1. This update addresses some recently reported bugs and also includes optimizations that will improve the speed with which you can view items in the Wardrobe and Furniture browsers. Please note that if you are upgrading from any version of Home prior to 1.41 (i.e. more than 2 patches ago) then you will need to wait for the orange “hard drive activity” light to stop flashing on your PS3 before commencing the process of applying the 1.51 patch.

See you in Home!

    Thanks to Home v1.5, which introduces real-time multiplayer functionality, enhanced physics, and other developer-facing features, you can expect more robust game experiences on the Home platform in the future. Sodium 2 is the first in a long line of games that take advantage of this technology.

I was lucky enough to go to E3 , and I got a super code. I was wondering when I can enter that in so I can get all the FREE stuff it mentions on the back of the card? Also when is the full version of Scribble Shooter going come out for HOME? All HOME needs is trophies for games like Scribble Soother and Sodium, and more , and more people will use HOME.

    You can redeem that code right now! As far as Scribble Shooter goes, we don’t have a date to share at this time, but I can assure you that we will be releasing the full version very, very soon.

Thanks: Nation.

It’s good to see that mature content is coming to PS Home.

I’d still like to see a multiplayer underwater sci-fi/futuristic combat game with vehicles in PS home.

Played some Sodium 2 @ E3…..pretty exciting stuff. Looks really cool. Will there be any trophies for Home ever?

+ Conaaando on June 15th, 2011 at 10:47 am said:

I love updates. :-) It looks great! I think this home thing is letting games kind of popular among girls (at least the Playstation Home). And that’s good. Some days ago I saw a girl with no trophies. She told she just uses the Playstation Home. Bizarre, uh? But in a good way. ;-)

umm L_S…is there seriously strippers gonna be sold in Home now? O_O

Prices in Home for items for simply stupid. The new Metal Gear outfit of big boss is $6??? You can buy a new PSP game for 3 more dollars.

-Put all Home items on sale on the PSN Store for easy access. like the hong kong store.
-Put your Home avatar picture in your PSN ID.
-Gran Turismo 5 public space.
-killzone public space.

Like the updates to the Home Community but I have one small question. Were any lizards hurt in the making of the Sodium 2 Racer vid, it was humorous the little Gecko stuck to my screen…

I am so looking forward to the updates coming Thur June 16th.

@Locust_Star

Does Sodium 2 have a Personal Space like the Sodium 1 Salt Shooter space? Also, can we play every level of Sodium absolutely free or is there a new outfit we have to purchase? If so free or purchase, I’m game either way. The beta has been a blast and I’ll be looking forward to tomorrow.

This is the best update we have had in a long time – not that I am complaining about the others. This one just knocks my socks off.

As for the dancers, maybe some bad boys might decide to stay home (in their personal spaces)?

Project Velocity looks hot. I have fun with the beta, but now it’s time to take on the world.

Thank you, Locust_Star, for this great news!

Still waiting to see very necessary things in Home like Netflix party support in personal spaces and Pandora Radio support. I also am wondering where that trophy room is, although I understand the trophy room probably can’t really be brought out until the release of the PS4. =/ Please reply! lol


37

+ Conrad_Max on June 15th, 2011 at 2:34 pm said:

Our avatars are limited to the short list of dance that we currently have. It’s a limitation that is part of the hard programing. One way to have more dance steps is to create new avatars with the dance steps built in (such as the Sync dancers). They are not our normal avatars but a separate one. Thus they cannot be made to look like us.

The other way to have more dance steps is by eliminating (taking away) one dance step for each new one added.

This is a topic that can be discussed on the Home suggestion forum.

+ FORMIK on June 15th, 2011 at 2:42 pm said:

I’m a big fan of Sodium 1: Salt Shooter. Are there any plans to release any new Home games in the tank combat genre?

It’s a stretch – but any plans on releasing additional DLC for Salt Shooter, bonuses to players that have both Sodium games, or an update to Home games that allow for trophies?

I’m digging the improved games possible now with Home.

OK – IM GOING TO WRITE THIS IN CAPS TO SHOW HOW SERIOUS I AM ABOUT WHAT IM WRITING! THE SODIUM 2 IS RIDICULOUS…FLYING CARS…LIKE WIPEOUT….ARE YOU SERIOUS? IM VERY DISSAPOINTED IN THE HOME DEVS WHO DECIDED TO PUSH THIS GAME FORWARD. THIS JUST SHOWS THE LACK OF IDEAS YOU GUYS HAVE TOWARDS HOME. ALL THE TIME IMPLEMENTED IN THIS “NEW GAME” COULDVE BIN USED TO MAKE A BETTER GAME…OR IMPROVE THE AVATAR FEATURES LIKE ALLOWING US TO VIEW THEM OFF OUR XMB RATHER THAN HAVING TO GO TO PS HOME. DONT GET ME WRONG PS HOME HAS ALOT OF POTENTIAL BUT TO MIMIC A GAME THATS WITH OUT A DOUBT GOING TO LOOK BETTER AND IS ALREADY FREE – DUE TO THE PSN OUTAGE, IS JUST SAD. THERE ARE PLENTY OF GREAT IDEAS ON THE BLOG THAT COULDVE BIN USED FOR HOME. HONESTLY I DONT THINK YOU HOME DEVS ARE EVEN LOOKING AT THEM BECAUSE IF THAT WAS THE CASE HOME WOULD HAVE TV’S AND RADIOS THAT READ OFF OUR HDD.NW THATS AN UPDATE IM SURE EVERYONE ON HOME WOULD BE PROUD TO DOWNLOAD. SO YEAH..STOP TAKING SHORT CUTS AND JUST READ AND ACT ON THE IDEAS OF THE PLAYSTATION COMMUNITY BECAUSE IT WOULDN’T BE A HOME WITH OUT US!

THANK YOU :)

looks like a good update to home. I’ve been popping in a lot more lately and stuff like this will keep me coming. Sodium 2 looks like it will be a great addition for us Wipeout fans.

I also agree with #16. A home RPG/dungeon crawler would be great. Could sell equipment and armor for our avatars and let us group up to play the game.
