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…

When is Sony going to realize that PlayStation Home is a complete waste of their resources? All the money they have spent on this (which its STILL in BETA phase right?) could have gone to a better more robust and secure network. To this day I still can’t understand why people spend their real money on virtual items which the moment Sony decides to close Home for good, will be as real as unicorns(yes I’m guilty on that one). I did go and checked out the redesign, but I actually got bored so quickly that it actually made me fall asleep. So it wasn’t just my avatar that was sleeping for a while. There wasn’t anything good about it. They designed it so large spaces do not exist, since they can’t have that many users per server. As far the people that I encountered, most where either just wondering around like me or just standing there doing nothing(also asleep?). To be fair, I was quite exited about Home when it was first mentioned and when I got a access code (before it became available to all users) I was really happy. Over time, this has dwindled since a lot of the promises either never materialized or where really short in expectations. There are so many other better ways to use your PS3. This is just not one of them.

I haven’t been on PlayStation Home in AGES!
I’m gonna go on it, for a bit, in the Summer Holidays (it’s quite a long time away, but I just don’t have the time at the present circumstances), and see how far it’s progressing.
But PlayStation Home could really use a diverse weather system, seasons, pets, real-time voice chat, where you can expect places to get noisy when you’re in crowds, and so much more!
Sony, COME ON! Home can be a far GREATER success than it is now, but I’m sure you guys are workin’ at your best, so thank you! And Good Luck! xDD

@MrSniffer, well considering that Lockwood Publishing there development studio is based in Nottingham, United Kingdom then some of there words may well be to do with British, with the word as *decadent* that is basically the posh term of good, quality clothes which is mostly wore formally to going out to such places in the evening.
