Home for the Holidays – New Games, Events & Special Deals in PlayStation Home

Locust_Star's Avatar + Posted by Locust_Star on Dec 14, 2011 // PlayStation Home Community Manager

The holidays arrive in PlayStation Home this Thursday, December 15th with the force of an F5 gust, bringing games, quests, rewards, and plenty of wonderful, wintry fun for all. Beginning in the newly-decorated PlayStation Home Mall, players will find a plentitude of festive items at deals that simply can’t be beat. From free goodies hidden within the stores as a sign of goodwill towards all to special bundles priced as low as they go, ‘tis the season to go shopping in PlayStation Home.

Of course, no winter holiday would be complete without a special event, which is why we have called in favors with our friends Snowman, Snow Bear, and some very special guests for what is sure to be the celebration of the year.

Hosted in a snow-covered Pier Park, the Winter Holiday Hullabaloo is a collection of quests and community activities that reward players with exclusive items and collectibles only available from this limited-time holiday event. Start by going to the Activity Board to start the Winter Holiday Hullabaloo quest; then catch a boat from Pier Park to transport to this chill(y) locale where Snowman and Snow Bear will provide clues that will lead you throughout a vast winter wonderland filled with tons of surprises. Complete all the quests to unlock a variety of special rewards that will leave your inventory bulging with awesome mementos of the 2011 holiday season!

Just in time for New Years, Lockwood releases their Midnight Glade personal space, which lets players unleash a pyrotechnic display against the dark sky. With grassy fields that turn into gently sloping hills, an idyllic spreading oak tree, and a campfire area the Midnight Glade is the ideal spot to ring in the New Year with your friends.

Pick up the Zeus and Comet rockets from the Lockwood Publishing store, choose your favorite colors and then position your launcher (diagrams and details on the back of the launchers which will help make setting up the perfect display easy). Get eight of your friends in the Midnight Glade at the same time to unlock the Supernova Firework reward – you can use the built-in Gift Machine to send them home with a gift or two (and they can return the favor)!

The PlayStation Home Mall receives yet another huge update this week with new Mydeco items from VEEMEE, additions to the popular Drey line from Lockwood, Adidas clothing courtesy of Konami, more Urban Camo costumes (also from Konami), and tons more!

To help celebrate the release of PlayStation Home v1.6 last week (which now allows for up to 100 items to be placed in your personal space), we’ve even put select decorations on sale in the Furniture store. Here’s a look at some of the clothing, furniture, costumes, and companions coming to the PlayStation Home Mall this week – be sure to log in this week and add these items to your collection!

Sodium2 sees the second part of the Payback Update this week with the introduction of brand new fuel additive and frame upgrades for your velocity racer. If it’s sheer speed you’re after then you can now turbocharge your racer with a selection of new fuel additives. Shave precious seconds of your best Sodium2 run with these indispensible additions to your Velocity racer set-up. And for those of you hankering after the perfect racing line, you can now upgrade your crafts frame to provide previously unmatched levels of stability. Show your rivals who the boss is with these new awesome upgrades – available this Thursday in Sodium2!

We here on the PlayStation Home team are feeling especially festive this holiday season. In the true spirit of giving, we’ve created a special holiday quest that will take you through the stores of the PlayStation Home Mall on a scavenger hunt for a variety of free items (special thanks to the wide community of PlayStation Home developers for donating content to this special holiday quest).

Finally, we wanted to give you all a sneak peek at one of our soon-to-be-released clubhouses – the Desert Haven. Set amongst the red rocks in the sunny and sand-strewn desert valley, this remote property is a shared space that allows up to 32 members a private location to meet up and play games together. Check it out!

@Locust_Star

Please read the post above and now (x2 PROBLEMS)

Cabin Boy Arcade Game is having issues. You catch about 1 fish then the second one the screen goes black. The game is un-responsive. The music still plays but screen black can’t play. It’s a problem

The Musicality Space is having problems. The min-game played there. Its says loading something…But when it comes on and looks ready. I play it and the screen keeps saying loading. Until finally it goes black. Reloading and clear cache DID NOT fix. There is a problem with this.

You need to fix this!

Last year in Hong Kong Home there was a billboard that said “Let’s Celebrate Christ Together”, but in America you won’t even use the word Christmas. Winter Holiday? Your political correctness would be sickening if it weren’t so hilarious.

@52 Exactly! This year, they should totally put something up that says, “Satan Claws loves you this holiday.” to balance it out.

Home was down yesterday. And now it’s back down once again. I hope the bugs people complained about are getting fixed and solved.

I see they have a new patch on PlayStation Home. Firmware update to home. So you are making some progress.

No rush. Just get things fixed.

@CHIBEAR77
I’m having a similar issue. I did everything (all pictures, fish, and quest objectives) but I cannot turn the quest in. So basically I got a bunch of seasonal items (which I wont use) but not the companion I really wanted. Nor can either of us join in part 2 or 3 til its fixed.

So yeah, this sucks pretty hard right now.

Love the holiday quests but what’s up with requiring 10 barrels from that Bootlegger ’29 game? Trying to stay in the Christmas spirit while at the same time wanting to curse out some random person for camping the end zone and blowing me away carrying said barrel is not an easy task >_<
