The Dead Island Total Game Integration continues in PlayStation Home as the third and final wave of the zombie horde is unleashed this week. Head to the Central Plaza this Thursday, September 1st and get to slaughtering swarms of zombies with the new Sawblade Mace weapon. Survive a series of bloody, hyper-violent challenges that allow you unlock a host of unique rewards – including the exclusive “Exploding Zombie Meat” weapon for use in Dead Island. Can you help the community exterminate 20 million zombies? Get your hands bloody this week in PlayStation Home.

Dead Island: Meat Bait

The Velocity Racing League enters a new phase this Thursday with the Sodium 2 Nemesis Update. With the start of the Nemesis stage of the Velocity Racing League a new challenge awaits you in the form of a new track (complete with reverse mode) – Wasteland Spires!

New technological advances pioneered on Iridos have also paved the way for a new set of Velocity Racer upgrades, also releasing this week. New rocket boosters and hover engine upgrades will give you even more customizability options for your craft, allowing you to make the decisions that could see you sitting pretty at the top of the Sodium 2 leader boards.

Your hard-fought quest for bragging rights also gets a boost with the introduction of the Holo-rank system. When you enter the Launch Grid, your level will be displayed on the back of your avatar for all to see – wear it with pride! Also added are a range of smaller improvements to Sodium 2 based on your feedback such as the ability to quickly select new classes of vehicle in multiplayer, and removing chat bubbles during the race. Check out this huge update to Sodium 2 when it releases this Thursday!

The long-awaited Winter Vacation Villa personal space releases this week. Experience the frills and chills of winter in this ski chalet, nestled neatly in between a white-capped cliff and snow-dressed forest and overlooked by an icy cascading waterfall. Complete with its own outdoor Jacuzzi, indoor fireplace, and veranda bedroom, this is how the winter was meant to be spent! Don’t believe me? Take a tour by selecting the Winter Vacation Villa Personal Space Open House from the PlayStation Home Navigator and get up an up close and personal look at this luxurious abode. If you like what you see, you can easily add it to your collection for the low price of $4.99.

VeeMee is packing the shelves of the PlayStation Home Mall this week with its new line of Across All Arenas virtual items. Choose from a wide array of items from hit musical acts like The Wanted, White Lies and Florence + the Machine as well as designs from the popular clothing brand Star in the Hood. While you are in the Mall, be sure to pick up LOOT’s adorable schnauzer companions and the recently-released Deus Ex: Human Revolution costumes. Afterwards, head to the Central Plaza to receive an exclusive X-MEN: FIRST CLASS reward!

I find it extremely hard to believe and I’m really surprised at Sony that they give more support, improvements, features, content, etc. to Home but none to more important core things like the UI, in-game UI and all the mandatory features YOUR consumers have been dying for for years! yes, like cross party chat, universal game invites, universal music playback, PSN Online ID change to name a few, and don’t give me any, “the PS3 can’t do cross chat” because it can, all Sony has to do is improve the UI and in-game UI for examples (which they already need a huge overhaul) and have them use less RAM and cross party chat can be implemented. If not, worse case scenario release new PS3′s with more RAM, just like you did with the PSP so your consumers dying for these features can finally get them. If games need to be patched than the devs that want to patch them will, simple! Sony could even make it mandatory just like they did with Trophies.

Hey Locust_Star Im still having problems with the zombie-survival game
it seems that wave 2 and 3 are still locked, even the double-axe and Sawblade Mace weapons are also lacked, even the challenges I clear keeps on resetting. Because of this problem I can’t even complete any of the challenges since everything is still locked and they keep on resetting even if I manage to clear a challenge

I have the same problem like him i want to know if this will have solution plis

Where the hex is my severed zombie head? I was watching how we were doing. I know we got 20,000,000 kills. Right after that is when they changed it to the X-Men Magneto game. When are we getting it? Please be a zombie head you carry in your hand by the hair… please….
