This Wednesday, April 11th will see yet another spectacular PlayStation Home update with the arrival of the x7 nightclub. Also, Novus Prime launches their 5.5 update for x7 members (complete with tons of new items that enhance gameplay) and Granzella brings updates to the Grand Edo of Nippon. Here’s your must-do list for this week in PlayStation Home:

x7 – Wednesday marks the grand opening of x7 – the nightclub for the PlayStation Home elite! This VIP nightclub is for PlayStation Plus subscribers and collectors of the PlayStation Home Exclusives line and is packed with premium content not available anywhere else. All x7 members get early access to select content before it gets released to the public, special discounts, and even free items!

Hit the dance floor or mix and mingle with the hottest members of the PlayStation Home community with FLIRT, a game for singles and socialites where you can compete against others for a chance to be crowned king or queen of the x7 nightclub!

Novus Prime 5.5 UpdateNovus Prime gets its newest shipment of game-enhancing outfits and virtual items this week! Suit up as the new Obsidian Bladewalker foot soldier with four custom animations, holographic weapon, and a 5% experience boost in Novus Prime! You’ll also get 20% off the price if you own the Obsidian Pilot outfit.


Gain the golden touch with the new gold-plated Midas Reactive Defense System and get a 25% Nebulon collection bonus when you own the entire outfit! Power up your avatar with the sleek new Ion Stream Power Armor, and don’t forget to show off your deadly side with the newest Obsidian technology available to the Earth Fleet: the Obsidian Throwing Star. Warp to the Novus Prime space station today to check out all the new gear and Join the Fight!

Members of x7, the new VIP nightclub, will gain exclusive early access to these new Novus Prime 5.5 game enhancing virtual items and bundles, including the Midas Reactive Defense System bundles, Obsidian Bladewalker Suit, Obsidian Throwing Star, Ion Stream Power Armor, for one full week before becoming available to the public.

Defend the Great Edo of Nippon – Edo is a peaceful city. There is, however, another Edo that you have yet to see. This alternate world is very similar to the Edo you know, but horrible Mononoke (evil and mischievous spirits), such as Oni and Hitodama, roam the streets. Samurai may take on this mission alone or battle in a group, and can use the free bamboo sword or purchase more powerful weapons and armor. In the fight against the Mononoke you can attack, defend, crouch, and jump.

PlayStation Home: Operation Defend Edo

Be sure to make full use of these various actions. Use vertical cuts, side cuts, and other various attacks against the Mononoke. Accept the mission goals and destroy the Mononoke!

Create dark, masculine scenes with the vintage leather sofa and cushion, or dreamy feminine vignettes using the swing bench and the frilled parasol. Or combine all the items at your disposal to create a completely unique place for your avatar to preen and pose. There’s even a horse!

In other Lockwood Publishing news, If you want to dress like a winner, you have to BE a winner – Sodium2 Legendary Racers coming soon to PlayStation Home.

Sodium: Legendary Racer

Spring Fling Quest – Complete the new Spring Fling quest, which will test your attention to detail as you race around Home in search of clues, so keep your eyes peeled! And remember to check the Activity Board regularly for new quests.

There is so much new content coming this week – what will you check out first?

See you in Home!

What an overwhelming update, very excited to see all of this! I had my doubts the Edo monster battle would ever come to US but I’m very glad it finally did!

The Drey prop pack is also something I’ve been looking forward to for months!

Also so glad to see X7, it’s about time. The early release of items for members is the most interesting aspect for me. A few questions:

What are the requirements for getting into X7 in terms of Exclusives purchases?

Will there be new levels and rewards in Novus to go along with the new upgrades?

Kinda nice to see PlayStation Plus becoming more involved in NA Home.

Care to share what some of the new free reward items are for X7?

    We’re very glad to enhance everyone’s PlayStation Plus benefits of membership. As for the x7 items, you’ll have to come in and find out! It’s no secret though that the exclusive early-access to the Novus Prime 5.5 items is likely the most special bonus.

Not too shabby! I like the x7 Club! There needed to be a club for PS Plus members and I like that you included members who own the exclusives items too! It’s about time PlayStation Community members are able to receive the amenities of being PLUS member inside of Home. Just my 3 cents…

    I think you have enough of the options met to never worry about being blocked by the big guy at the door.

    Since everyone is curious as exactly what criteria to gain access to x7, here’s a tidy list (you only need one of the following):

    - PlayStation Plus membership
    - Gold Suit
    - Diamond Suit
    - PlayStation Home Mansion First Floor
    - PlayStation Home Mansion Second Floor
    - PlayStation Home Mansion Infinity Pool
    - Emerald, Ruby, and Sapphire Suit Bundle
    - Animated Diamond Furniture Collection
    - Ultimate Diamond Furniture Collection
    - 7 or 30-Day Pass

Awesome update though. Super stoked for Edo of Nippon!

i think it is a bad idea plus members are able to get into X7 when some people paid $30 for all of the mansion then all the other stuff that is in the exclusive store. i mean now all they have to do is pay $17.99 for 3 months of plus to get into the vip club. you really don’t think about the people who spend a fortune on home every week to get excluvive benefits that others can’t get. so thank you again for messing up something only a few people should have access to.

    That’s true, but the ongoing pre-access to virtual items, exclusive sales, and exclusive rewards will continue on beyond the 3 months. You will have access even longer. ;-)

+ Shinra_Soldier7 on April 9th, 2012 at 2:16 pm said:

Really? I waited for the x7 vip space and Im not even eligible? I own the loot space apt among others but none of the mansion pieces and basically have every reward in Home and maxed out to the max level in all quests and games including S2, cutthroats, NP, and am 1 month form maxing out Aurora. That is unfair coming from a long time Home fan.

Can I ask at least one question? Does the Playstation Mansion garage count and make us eligible for the club?

+ retro25 on April 9th, 2012 at 2:26 pm said:

*sigh* I won’t go to the X7 space cause I’m not a PS plus member and I don’t own all Home Exclusive items (cause their really expensive) :( but the Great Edo of Nippon mini game is finaly here and that’s all. I wonder if there will be a animal costume with animation (maybe a wolf) or a retro 80′s theme Personal space and items comes to PS Home that will be awesome :) .

+ Shinra_Soldier7 on April 9th, 2012 at 2:27 pm said:

Dont see how spending money makes you elite. It should be accomplishment based as well. I feel like I have been thrown to the side and Im sure many other long time Home users will too. Ive done basically everything in Home but buy from exclusives. It sucks to see that does not make me good enough to get in. :/

+ icydogs on April 9th, 2012 at 2:52 pm said:

I’m just wondering, but how does the Suggestions Forum process work exactly? Do a few people read them, only one, or a community team relay their favorite and most likely candidates for future home items to the developers? Does the Home team read through the various threads and take those into consideration as ideas, try to do them exactly, or only focus on the monthly suggestion thread? Is a lot of Home’s content based on user suggestions? Sorry if I’m asking too many questions, I’ve just been pondering this for a while. :P

    + GlassWalls on April 9th, 2012 at 3:07 pm said:

    Anyone on the Home team can and often does look in there from time to time. What gets made is not chosen randomly, but from a combination of things—popularity of the idea, originality of the idea, if that concept is already represented in Home somehow and feasibility occasionally comes into play. Our 3rd party developers also are welcome to check it out, and I’m quite certain many of their ideas have come from there too. It’s open to the public so everyone can chime in as well as read. I always link the most recent monthly suggestion threads links to previous ones because all ideas are good ideas, not just the most recent.

    Any long-standing Home user who regularly looks in there can vouch that many ideas have come to life since a request was dropped in there. ;-)

A little off-topic, are you guys (devs) looking into stereophonic sound for the next Xbox? (example – must wear headphones: http://www.youtube.com/watch?fmt=18&gl=GB&hl=en-GB&v=8IXm6SuUigI) I believe excellent audio is more important for immersion than high-level visuals. (It would be so disappointing if gaming missed out on this for ANOTHER bunch of years.)
