Special Holiday Update For PlayStation Home

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

The Winter Holiday celebration continues this week in PlayStation Home, with tons of awesome new content scheduled to arrive on your PlayStation 3 this Thursday, December 22nd. This week will see the release of some seriously spectacular personal spaces that are packed to the brim with goodies, as well as a massive overload of new items on the shelves in the PlayStation Home Mall (along with some sales you will not want to miss out on). From updates to the popular Winter Holiday Hullabaloo event to a multitude of new videos in the Community Theater (complete with special rewards), PlayStation Home is truly the place to be this Holiday season!

Forget snow and ice, mittens, scarves, and frigid weather. Lockwood Publishing’s new Board Figment Dream Yacht will help you get away from the cold of winter. Spend your holidays like the Home elite, basking in the sun on the deck of your private yacht, or soothe your cares away in one of the two on-board hot tubs. It’s the perfect place to entertain guests, with several lounge areas and exquisite views of your own private tropical hideaway.

The Dream Yacht comes with some beautiful furnishings already in place, but if you spend some time exploring its expansive three floors you may find more things to add that special finishing touch ;) With such opulent surroundings, it’s only natural to dress to impress. Visit Lockwood’s Exclusive Store (only available on the Dream Yacht) to gain access to a variety of elegant fashions that will assure your style is a cut above the rest!

Leap into the future with LOOT’s brand new Space Apartment, a three-story personal space with expansive views of outer space. This future-forward personal space is equipped with highly advanced technology powered by the unique Space Apartment’s Remote Access (S.A.R.A.) system. With S.A.R.A you can:

  • View up to 5 different Twitter feeds from a ticker.
  • Search for photos from your Flickr account and display them on any or all of the 15 photo screens available throughout the space. Each photo screen even lets you set-up your own slideshows.
  • Choose from 8 screen locations to view LOOT EOD (Entertainment On Demand) content. LOOT EOD screens let you watch free full length movies and TV shows from Crackle, listen to live music radio from RadioIO and watch live events powered by Ustream and NASA TV!
  • Control your Space Apartment’s retractable ceiling, automated blinds and dynamic lighting options.

S.A.R.A. and LOOT welcome you to the home of the future – available this Thursday only in PlayStation Home!

The first new clubhouse in 3 years releases in PlayStation Home this week. Set amongst the red rocks in the sunny and sand-strewn desert valley, the Desert Haven is a clubhouse that allows up to 32 members a private location to meet up and play games together. That’s not all – those of you that purchase the Desert Haven clubhouse will receive the classic PlayStation Home clubhouse for free! Check out this guided tour from our buddy Sal (he’s been spending time in the desert ever since he retired from the waste management business) and then visit the special public space version of the Desert Haven this Thursday to get and up-close-and-personal look at this awesome new clubhouse.

Ever dream of flying? We all have – which is why we are excited to announce an update to one of the most popular PlayStation Home spaces of all time. Enter Red Bull Flugtag, which has been updated to allow you and your friends to assemble into teams of four and create and launch your very own custom craft. You’ll be rewarded handsomely for your skills, assuming the wind doesn’t blow you over. Red Bull has also made updates to the Red Bull Beach where the latest Red Bull Illume action adventure photography is on display. Pay a visit to the Red Bull MXT vehicle, which is fully equipped with flat screens displaying special videos and speakers that are sure to be pumping some sick beats. Afterwards, make your way over to the Red Bull vending machine where you have to play to get your wings. You’ll see what we mean…

    If you’re feeling nostalgic, you can visit versions of Central Plaza from the days of the Helghast invasion (Killzone Total Game Integration) or the zombie swarm (Dead Island TGI). You can find both in the Navigator under Explore.

    The Dream Yacht is $9.99, and the Desert Haven Clubhouse is $4.99.

Is it that hard to say “Christmas”? Home is so politically correct! lol. Even the Christmas Tree I purchased a few years ago was called like a festive or winter tree or something!

    In Home, we celebrate all kinds of holidays, and there is content available to cover all major beliefs from Christmas to Kwanzaa, to Hanukkah and even Festivus!

    My point is, they’re all happy, and they’re all holidays. So happy holidays (or in your case, happy Christmas)!

Locust have you seen the HADES OUTFIT (MALE ) at Costumes Store, is there a way the Development team can create wings just as big and wide open as the HADES outfit has …..Please Pretty Please
and Please Please Please we need Music in Home, maybe a boombox we can fill up with songs we buy from Qryocity , I decorated my Midnite Glade Personal space with Fireworks but Music is missing , im sick and tired of the Playground boombox and all the so call musical items , we need real music , music each of us listen to .

Im happy about the 100 items per personal space but at the same time im NOT
it should of been :
12 furniture items + 1 active item
34 furniture items + 2 active items
56 furniture items + 3 active items
78 furniture items + 4 active items
then 100 furniture items
a Personal space doesnt get filled up with 34 or 12 furniture items just so we can put , 2 or 3 active items , you gotta make possible for us to put more active items .

+ ChaseHammerJ on December 21st, 2011 at 12:39 pm said:

I have totally given up on HOME. Which is funny because it was one of the reasons I was so excited to get a PS3 back in 2007. None of the friends play in it. Many of my items where I religiously earned have disappeared from my inventory for no reason (ie. Cris Angel Coffin Couch). I absolutely HATE the new home layout, the original Central Park with connecting building was WAAAY better. The mall is an absolute mess. Gah there are so many good memories from enjoying Home and now its all gone.

Good job guys you managed to turn something I loved about PS3 into something I couldnt care any less about.

ABSOLUTELY AMAZING UPDATE! So many great things!! I don’t even know where to begin! I’m so excited for the new club, dream yacht, Juggernaut pets and the new xmas stuff most of all!

I just am wondering about how having multiple club houses will work. Do we still get to keep the name and memberlist of our current club?

    + GlassWalls on December 21st, 2011 at 3:32 pm said:

    As always, you can only own one active club at a time, though the Desert Haven will allow a new design to choose from. As for converting the club, it will be a manual choice. More details, I am waiting on, and will share via the Home forums when I have it. http://us.playstation.com/home-forums

Dream yacht is mine. Clear cut choice. I do wish all the Christmas Costumes would have come last week. Ill probably skip them since Christmas IS only a few days away. I also think it’s a very good idea for the colored suit bundling. I also want to thank you all for bringing Home Internet radio in the Loot spaces.It has made my visits to Home SO much more”real”.Nothing like some smooth jazz and classical music while chilling out and decorating and entertaining.

I send warm wishes to the NA Home team,managers and team leaders and our across the pond team.Our HCV’s and the Home users and all of you here. I wish you all a Merry Merry Christmas.I am looking so forward to what 2012 will bring us all and am so proud to be a part of Home.Sony,Your my friend!

@Fly-boi_2009 – Loot apartments that have an EOD such as the Hollywood Hills and Sunset Yacht personal spaces have RadioIO streaming through them currently. It is real music by actual artists and to be honest, it’s very refreshing. If you have any friends with those personal spaces you should check it out. If not add me as a friend and I’ll show you the feature.

Questions:
1) Can that yellow submersible vehicle (that is located on the Board Figment Dream Yacht) be put into the water and be piloted?

2) When is Novus Prime going to get new ranks, ship weapons, and ship upgrades?

3) Will Home ever get a multiplayer underwater sci-fi/futuristic game involving submersible combat?

With these new clubhouses coming out does that men Sonys going to start charging that monthly fee? Im aware it says the fee can be charged anytime and since now after 3 years the clubs are being paid attention it makes it seem that the fee will be right around the corner. Im interested in the clubhouses but not in paying a monthly fee and if i dont pay the fee id assume that would prevent me from going to the clubhouse, correct?
