Granzella Island Hideaway Comes to PlayStation Home + Weekly Update

Locust_Star's Avatar + Posted by Locust_Star on Sep 21, 2011 // PlayStation Home Community Manager

Calling all members of the PlayStation Home Community!

Great news: This Thursday, September 22nd the eagerly-awaited Granzella “Southern Island Hideaway” game space will be released in PlayStation Home! This tropical locale includes a variety of free games – such as a jet ski racing game and the Ocean Floor Treasure Hunt. Of course, these games come with a wide range of rewards (additional Granzella clothing and furniture items will also be available for purchase), so all you reward hunters out there take note. We’ve snagged a trailer from Granzella to whet your appetite – check it out!

Heads up: Lockwood will be releasing their Showcase public space this week! Visit “Caramel” in the Central Plaza this week to receive a Lockwood Emote reward, available for a limited time only. Afterwards, head over to the Showcase Lobby and pick up five limited-time rewards!

Lockwood Showcase

The PlayStation Home Mall receives an update this week with new companions (including a robot sidekick and pet dragon), clothes (new Home hoodies), a ton of new hairstyles for the guys and the girls, and some seriously psychedelic furniture!

Head to the PlayStation Home Community Theater this Thursday to receive a special reward to help commemorate the end of Summer (we think it will pair nicely with your Granzella rewards) and watch as HomeCast Rewind looks at the recently- released Resistance 3 space (providing a few tips and tricks to help you get all the rewards) and the luxurious Tycoon Penthouse personal space. Next up, SOCAST serves up some “vintage” SOCOM action.

Community Reward: Animated Electric Palm Tree

See you in Home!

Looks terrific! Can’t wait to go visit Granzella.

Just a question did Granzella add Prizes to the JET Ski game as Japan there are no Prizes?

Makes me wonder?


22

+ DCS-Tekken on September 21st, 2011 at 4:12 pm said:

Granzella we know has two spaces so far in Japan and they release a HOME Apartments u buy also in Japan but we know it won’t be in USA Home for awhile…

Most likely the Granzella space will be Version 1 and prize’s 1 batch! As Japan’s has second batch now!

LOL!

quick question locust i purchased the cag mech suits and in the details about the home outfits it said the mech suits had special animations but i don’t see any was it a miss print or something?

    + Locust_Star on September 21st, 2011 at 5:29 pm said:

    Hi Mike,

    The Lockwood Mech suits have custom animations that can be triggered by avatar actions (such as dances and emotes). The CAS (Combat Armor System) costumes do not have custom animations, though they are mech-styled in their appearance, which might be causing some confusion.

@crazy_kracker1:
When will people understand that Home was shown off too early and that a trophy room just isn’t happening?

On the other hand it would be nice if trophies translated into virtual items. Devs hardly do that.

    Ah, I see. This space is not releasing this week. That said, more Granzella content is definitely coming to NA Home in the future, we just have no dates to share at this time.

Im hoping we get BOTH the Recycling Bin and something like the Gift Machine, in which we could send items we have but dont want to our friends, without them paying for it cause is already paid by us, sometimes i have befriend people that are New to Home but because they are broke or limited in their money, they cant get much of anything so it would be nice if i can send people some of the items i have but dont want that can be useful to them .
I so love the new Jet ski game , im just hoping that i get to compete with other owners of the same personal space , we need more personal spaces with racing games in which you are able to compete with other owners of the same place, that would be sweet.

@ 43 erickafollie

i totally agree with you. i have something i never use that possible my friends who play on Home, or other people might have a much better time with using. why something like this has yet to be implemented yet is questionable. I really hope we see something like this in the future.

Plus it would be cool to do contest and thus be able to give out prizes to people.
