Locust_Star's Avatar + Posted by Locust_Star on Jul 27, 2011 // PlayStation Home Community Manager

A public service announcement from Lockwood Publishing: Sodium 2 has seen its 3 millionth race! This means that Sodium 2 players have collectively traveled more than 75% of the way from the Earth to the Sun. In recognition of this amazing achievement, Lockwood Publishing is unlocking new Reverse Mode tracks in Sodium 2 this week. Head to the Sodium 2 launch grid on Thursday, July 28th to tear it up on your new tracks!

You may have seen the teaser posters placed throughout PlayStation Home that show a variety of mech silhouettes. This Thursday, these incredibly awesome MechJet costumes will finally be available from the Sodium store in the PlayStation Home Mall. These are seriously some of the most impressive costumes to ever be released in PlayStation Home. Watch this trailer and then tell us what you think in the comments section.

Days may be blazing in the Sodium Desert, but nights can be brutally cold. The latest range of Sodium Desert Nights Track Gear addresses the problem of what to wear to Scorpio’s after the sun goes down. Pick up this future-blasted utility wear this Thursday from the Sodium Store. And while you are there, be sure to scoop up the latest additions to Lockwood Publishing’s Fool Throttle line!

Being a participant in Home ever since closed beta in 2008, it’s been disheartening to see how this has become nothing but a money pit for $ony since then. Comment after comment goes ignored by $ony all the time. Their arrogance never ceases to amaze me.

Considering they knew how their network security was substandard (more like nonexistent), it’s no surprise that they got attacked several times. But the real kicker is that they did nothing to protect our personal info when they had known. Heck, during the outage they downright lied to all of us paying customers several times.

And remember people, the network is NOT free!! Where do you think all the money $ony gets from royalties on games goes to? All the sales on Home here? The money from ads, from just everything. Heck, on one of their servers that got hacked by LulzSec, our passwords were NON-ENCRYPTED, not even hashed. Just plain as day like this text here.

When are they going to start listening to us? Take cross-game chat for example. Why does Vita get it, but yet PS3 customers (the ones who have been asking for it) don’t? This can only last so long before many of us jump ship… So Sony! Wake up, start listening to your paying customers, and treat them as you should, like the lifeblood of any company. Without us, you’ll lose.

That’s good Home is adding new stuff…now if only I could figure out if the Home I have has a bug cuz it keeps disconnecting and freezing me almost constantly. I can play other stuff online just fine but PS Home has some serious issues. Honestly, I’m getting pretty tired of it. That fact that I’m spending more time going back into Home each time than actually playing it is kinda sad.

Just got into Home and looking forward to watching EVO. Also very cool MechJet costumes, might pick one up.

Man the lack of anything in Home for Comic Con was disappointing. Especially since Sony had such a big presence at Comic Con. I would buy a Helicarrier Shield Home Space in a minute , also Avengers Suits and Shield Uniforms….Please take my money… that is all. Thor / Asgard space would be sweet too.

Hey lol atleast I’m happy with what I have, instead of you who are unhappy with what you have in some freakin beta. I spent more than $2000 lol but do I constantly complain about what I DONT have? No, because im not some spoiled brat. BETA BETA you fool. do u even know what a beta is? And to that guy, cross game voice chat. SO what? PSP wil have it. PS4 has it. XBOX has it… who cares. Im playing call of duty, as you play Sonic Classics., you think I want to hear about your sonic spins while im busy arguing with some fool on black ops? no I would call them or just text ngry messages about how I am not playing sonic and to shut up. PSHome is free, if you pay to buy things, that is your own problem. Dont spend money, then complain that you spent money. you need a doctor to tell you how messed up you are. its a gme, and home is a virtual gaming network, meaing, socialize and play games with friends. not complain cus u cant have 4 active items in some apartment. if you cant handle a beta then get the F*** out until its full version

@HoIlyWoodCeIeb

WHETHER I COMPLAINT OR NOT IS NONE OF YOUR BUSINESS, IF MY COMMENTS BOTHERS YOU THEN DONT READ THEM, JUST LIKE NOONE IS FORCING ME TO SPEND 2,000 DOLLARS IN HOME, IM NOT FORCING YOU TO READ MY COMMENTS.
IF I SPEND “MY MONEY” PURCHASING VIRTUAL ITEMS IN HOME IS BECAUSE REGARDLESS OF ALL MY COMPLAINTS I LOVE HOME.
IF IM A SPOILED BRAT OR NOT IS NONE OF YOUR BUSINESS AND THE ONLY 1 HERE PROVING TO BE A FOOL AND A FAULT MOUTH IS YOU, 1 RULE FOR POSTING COMMENTS IS “NO SWEARING” BUT THEN AGAIN I DONT EXPECT MUCH FROM SOMEONE OF YOUR LEVEL AND CLASS.

im not much concerned for the Alien Casino being released. thats not to say im not goin to like it, as im sure its gonna be a cool little minigame.

although i would like know if any of the other original spaces have any upcomming updates. because for almost a year since i have been logging into Home, i have noticed that at least one of the spaces that i know of still has a specific area that says “coming soon.” … just wanting to know out of curiosity.

Hey guys, wow, this week’s costumes are sick! Thanks PlayStation Home! I mean seriously, but does anyone know where I can get the shoes that change color? If one of you guys could answer, it would be much appreciated. Thanks!

I still really don’t see the value in Home besides a marketing talking point for the execs, pointing out that “we too have virtual avatars”. I’ve visited it a bunch of times and it’s nothing more than a novelty and digital hangout. Now if you let us use our Home avatars in certain games, that would be progress!

Looks interesting and a lot of content this week. Looking forward to it!

I have a feeling I’ll be seeing a lot of those mechas on Home… at least it’ll be more than back flips this time. Hehe.

Holy schnikes. There were so many great items made available, today.

I’m especially pleased with the recent Billabling clothing. That preview for the Lovelorn (black) dress doesn’t do the actual product justice; I was sure I wouldn’t find it flattering on my avatar — boy, was I wrong.

I’m curious why Street Fighter and Tekken comprise the featured items in the Central Plaza kiosk. Are these categories/items to be removed from the stores?

I think it would be great if you put out more bundle packs like the log cabin and clock tower packages, or update the real estate pack to newer spaces, real estate 2?

Ohlawd. My bad.

Ignore the last part of my previous comment (if you haven’t already). I failed to make the connection to the EVO event. I don’t have enough palms nor enough faces for this.
