Celebrate Halloween In PlayStation Home

Locust_Star's Avatar + Posted by Locust_Star on Oct 26, 2011 // PlayStation Home Community Manager

Darkness falls on Central Plaza this week, as ghosts and ghouls alike rise from their graves and converge upon PlayStation Home for an evil event full of unspeakable horrors beyond what the human mind can fathom. We have tons of spooktacular content coming just in time for this weekend’s Halloween festivities, so log in to PlayStation Home this Thursday, October 27th and check out this monstrous update!

The celebration begins with the launch of Aurora v1.3 and continues with some devilish community events courtesy of nDreams. Visit Aurora on Friday, October 28th to start the nDreams’ Halloween competition; visit the space on Monday, October 31st and join the nDreams team for their 19-hour “Around-the-World” Halloween party. Whizzing around the globe on their broomsticks, nDreams staff will be hosting the Truly Terrifying Quiz in Aurora and handing out some spellbinding prizes. The party starts in the dead hours of the morning on October 31st and ends shortly before the clock strikes midnight – so log in to PlayStation Home this Hallows Eve to take part in this special nDreams event!

Lockwood Publishing introduces the Cemetery Shadows – the no-bones-barred baseball team that’s in it to win it, even if that means soiling their hands with grave dirt. Take a walk on the dark side with the Cemetery Shadows baseball uniforms and get ready to bury the opposition alive!

To help you get into the Halloween spirit, we’re unleashing a series of blood-chilling costumes, creepy companions, and frightening new furniture items. Prices on Halloween items from the darkened past are being hacked and slashed and new items are being placed throughout the shelves of the PlayStation Home Mall. Here’s a look at some of the nightmarish new items coming your way this Thursday!

nDreams’ new nSanity headwear line features some of the most fang-tastic avatar customizations we’ve ever seen. And with the Lil’ Bling Reaper releasing this week, it’s never been easier to strut your stuff with a seriously scary look. Codeglue has expanded their collection of demonic products this week with their new Mummified companions and Dia de Los Muertos (Day of the Dead) masks while VEEMEE conjures up more Access All Areas/ Alice Cooper Halloween prop bundles and costumes. To top things off, Juggernaut Games releases the Cutterridge Estate personal space – a macabre mansion haunted by a legion of evil spirits (and hosting some eerie hidden rewards). (Be) head to the Estates store in the PlayStation Home Mall this Thursday and pick yours up!

    Yes – you are getting the Showcase and new items in the Gift Machine. Which means I can now use this as an opportunity to post the blurb I originally wrote for this blog post…excuse me while I make some more bad jokes:

    The Lockwood Publishing Showcase has been updated for Halloween, adorned with diabolical décor perfect for gathering with your friends for a poltergeist-filled photoshoot. Go to the Showcase starting this Thursday, October 27th to pick up six sinister, limited time rewards – you’ll have to visit each day to collect them all! And if your friends are short on costumes this Halloween, you can put them up on a meat hook in your apartment…I mean, meet up with them in your apartment and hook them up with up to 10 ghastly gifts from the Lockwood Gift Machine!

Hey Locust:

I have quick two questions about the update.

As for the new personal space, are the rewards available for visitors/guests or just for owner?
And will there be any free Halloween rewards tomorrow when we go the the Plaza?

Thanks!
Shinra

Is there a way to tell Granzella Inc that their Southern Island Hideaway is a total Fail, firstable a lot of people hate it or dont like that place entirely, i invite any of you to go there and see how much it LAGS, just to say a complete sentence like, hello, how are you ? takes about 2 to 3 mins to pop on screen, this place needs to be remove from the Home list and be redone , it needs serious improvements, if they were pretending to make a better SEASIDE they failed, make this BEACH – SAND part a lot wider.
As for the new Halloween stuff i hope i dont pay for them and dont get anything like last week, which i bought the Witch costume at 10 am and didnt get it til after 8 pm , and not until i got 4 new rewards and made the Witch costume to pop in Storage . Get rid of Public Places people dont visit anymore and improve the ones that people like , then maybe , there will be less lags among the public places and rewards.

i’m not too much in a rush for the new hub. Home is already full of bugs and glitches, i rather they take their time and make sure the load times are fast as possible and that they rid the hub of as many bugs as possible.

i mean i hope we get it before December, but i rather they make sure the Hub is playable and bug free.

the outrage the would ensure if they bring the Hub out with slow load times, glitches and bugs.

i’m looking forward to the Cutteridge Estate. i’m not much into parties, but other than that seems like a decent update this week in my opinion.

Home is getting boring there isn’t anything to do anymore. They need to release the hub because the public spaces thatt they have have been around to long and are just played out. Also what must you do to get into closed beta I’ve spent 3000 dollars on home and nothing. I even have plus on my dream_eyes737 account and nothing

Are you ever going to make a Personal space that friends can change clothes without leaving ? The clubhouse has that feauture, whats stopping you from making a personal space with the same feauture as the Clubhouse ?
Im with Erickafollie about the Southern Island Hideaway , it lags a lot and when you try to leave , you freeze, therefore you have to Restart the PS3 and it sucks .
I remember SWAG_SKOOL_101 talking about a Private section (V.I.P) for us big spenders, where not just anybody has access to it , i say if you have spent $ 750.00 dollars and up , you get a V.I.P PASS to this exclusive area, that way us the Adults , wont have to deal with kids being annoying and trying to recruit us for their pointless Families, among other things , like the lack of communication skills or knowledge about whats going on in the world, we need this V.I.P section for the adults right away .

@ stevev363 YES get rid of public spaces people dont visit or hardly visit anymore, or are you gonna tell me you go to any of these places every single day BUZZ :HQ public space , Backstage with Guitar Hero , Hot Shots Golf , iNFamous abandoned docks , Magic : The Gathering , Namco Arcade Center ,Namco Theater ,PixelJunk Exhibition , Resistance station ,and these are just to name a few . Unlike you , i go to many of these places on regular bases and i always see 2 to 3 people the most, at any given time . that way in place of all these old places we get new ones with less bugs and more feautures to enjoy .
And next time , Dont make a threat , unlike you , i wasnt raise by thugs or violent people , Get Help .

I also agree with ericka & Ra_the_sun_king! I have been complaining about the southern island since it came out. I even spent money on a jet ski. I wont go there anymore & mayb they should do away with sum of these older unused places on home & fix popular newer places. But sum times I wonder y I bother complaining. It gets me No where. Just same **** different day!! But I enjoy home & love this weeks update! I just love halloween!!! I will always b a kid at heart but @22, you got the right idea 4 sure! I have spent thousands on home between myself & bf & my 2 kids!! A V.I.P Room for adults that have spent large amounts of money is a wonderful idea.
As far as the hub, I have a really good feeling about it. I almost think that due to the lack of attention that sum of these spaces require but dont recieve is due to the Hub. Sony has everyone working on the hub so why bother to fix the old when your creating something new.. I can understand that I really can but I just wish that someone would take it off the explore menu. We cant enjoy it or explore it, so why is it there?

Good job to the Home team management on this weeks update & special events! I cant wait to spend another 20 bucks this week! Thanks guys!

What home needs is improvement of the existing areas so they at least work. There have been many buggy places. More importantly home needs better security against lunatics like stevev. I mean his “commantary” can best be described as absurd. Complaining about massive lag isn’t “spewing filth” and threatening to cut someones arms off isn’t tolerable in the real world or online period. In fact doing so in real would result in a less than friendly visit from the local police.

YESSS!! I’ve been anticipating what would come for this Halloween. Definitely gonna be running around Home tomorrow. Although I missed the last Lockwood Showcase items due to traffic and freezing on a daily basis, I’m determined to get in there for this event. As far as the personal space goes, that’s a crazy-awesome-lookin’ place! Can’t wait for tommorow and Monday when the costume party will be held. You guys rock!

Also, Locust, I have just one question:
By now, most of us who have been using Home for quite awhile have tons beyond tons of items in our wardrobe and inventory for personal spaces. For the items we really don’t want to keep, is there any plans on giving us the option to just delete them completely? I mean, I know that’s why we have the storage section (at least, that’s what I use it for.). Anyway, if you could answer this question, I’d greatly appreciate it. :)

That aside, I’m really diggin’ this update! Keep up the good work, guys! :)
