This Thursday, November 30th, join the PlayStation Home community as we celebrate the one-year anniversary of PlayStation Home’s exclusive multiplayer space combat shooter Novus Prime. To kick start this special event, Nebulon and Experience boosters will be absolutely free for all players (available for a limited time only)! Each booster lasts for 24 hours and increases gains by 150%. To top things off, select Novus Prime items will be on sale for 50% off. This deal won’t last forever, so report to the Novus Prime space station this Thursday and join the fight!

Snow has begun to fall in the Lockwood Publishing Showcase, transforming it into a magical winter scene. Visit the Lockwood Publishing Showcase this Thursday to dance with Timmy the Gingerbread Man, marvel at the new festive Stitchkins and get a sneak peak at what Figment and Iron Fusion have in store for the future. And if that’s not enough, there’s a fantastic winter spa area where you can have chill out in a hot tub with your friends… not to mention a new batch of limited time rewards! Pro tip: pay attention to what Locky says, as he’ll give hints on how to unlock the rewards. Some of his clues may help, some may confuse, but one way or another, they will eventually lead you to the prizes – just be sure to keep checking back in order to collect all the Holiday rewards.

In other Lockwood news: Vintage and Athletic clothing packs are being released as part of the Drey collection. Give the gift of impeccable style with Drey items available this week exclusively from the Lockwood Gift Machine!

The newest additions to the LOOT EOD screens (available in the LOOT EOD Theater public space, Sunset Yacht personal space, and the Hollywood Hills House personal space) will arrive this week as part of Crackle’s monthly catalog update, which brings new movies to you free-of-charge (and some excellent movie poster rewards) . Don’t miss out on your last chance to catch Cruel Intentions, Rudy, Bat*21, Krull, Loser, Silent Hill, Starship Troopers, Striking Distance, Tekkonkinkreet and Universal Soldier: The Return before the new batch arrives. December brings you awesome titles like: The International, Quarantine, Fright Night and Deuce Bigalow: European Gigolo!

The PlayStation Home Mall will host a Community Appreciation event this week with prices on select items being slashed and a variety of free items being hidden within the stores, so be sure to log in this Thursday and start the treasure hunt. This is just the first of many special Community Appreciation events scheduled for the Holiday season in PlayStation Home – keep your eyes on this blog for more details!

Konami expands their popular B’Loons line this week with the new Breakdancer, Pirate, Hula Dancer, and Martial Artist costumes —each with custom animations. Also available this week from Konami is the new Urban Camo line. With these outfits you will be able to hide in plain sight.

While the cooler days here in San Francisco make me bust out my winter hoodies in real life (yes, I arrange them according to season), we have some new virtual hoodies hitting the shelves of the PlayStation Home Mall that will help keep you warm in the winter months. Choose from among the Glowing Star, the Checkered, and the Atomic designs in our new line of animated hoodies (available for both men and women).

To help kick off the Winter Holidays in PlayStation Home, some classic holiday outfits are being brought back to the shelves of the PlayStation Home Mall- including the Elf outfit, the Christmas Tree outfit, the Ms Claus outfit, Reindeer Horns, tons of statues and ornaments, [cue singing] and a Partridge in a Pear Tree [/singing]. Log in this Thursday to stock up and deck your halls (and yourself) out with these festive fashions.

Finally, be sure to head to the PlayStation Home Community Theater this Thursday to check out the latest episodes from HomeCast Rewind and SOCAST. This week HomeCast Rewind covers what’s new in PlayStation Home, while SOCAST returns with a discussion of the new SOCOM 4 Demolition DLC!

See you in Home!

I’m guessing Pier Park is going to be the new Plaza? I mean the place where you put a special theme for the holidays?

    Nope! We can design and deploy fun anywhere with the new core spaces—and we plan to for each of them in the coming year. Stay tuned!

    The next PSTALENT video that arrives will give everyone another shot at picking it up. HomeCast’s next video is great, as usual. HearItWow really does a spectacular job each and every time.

    Ho ho ho!

I can’t wait for the Christmas activities and new items to be released in Home.This is when Home shines the best.Keep up the great work and patience is a virtue with free reward items.Missing items from purchases on the other hand shouldn’t still be happening.

the rewards for LBP AND CRACKLE are not working , i have both the Loot Yatch and the Hollywood Hills apartment and all i got was some picture, thats it , i went to the loot theater stayed for 2 hours and got nothing , are you ever gonna fix this or should i just give up on Home entirely ?
Many Home Users do a lot of shopping every week , including myself and it seems like ALL OF YOU ignore what we have to say .
