This Wednesday, July 11th, brings a ton of summer fun to PlayStation Home. Here’s your weekly to-do list:

1. Juggernaut Steampunk Adventure Pack
Juggernaut Games introduces the Steampunk Adventure pack bundle that includes clothing, furniture, a companion, a clock that tells real time (using only three furniture slots) and an animated clockwork table (only two slots). Adventure awaits!

2. Crystal Seashores Personal Space and Clubhouse
Members of x7 were able to check out and pick up this stunning new personal space and clubhouse design last week, but it is making its public debut this Wednesday. Reminiscent of classic European estates, the Seashores Personal Space and Clubhouse evokes an Old World charm that is destined to put you at ease. Complete with a spacious interior, upper balcony, stunning pool and even lounge chairs you can fully relax in, you will be king (or queen) of your castle. Own your own little piece of stately paradise with the Crystal Seashores Personal Space and Clubhouse, available this Wednesday.

3. Lockwood July Medusa Collection
Over the past year, Medusa’s hair stylists have provided you with a style for every season. Now they’re branching out with a range of styles intended to help you fulfil your fantasies.

Always dreamed of being a high flier? Then you need the sleek, feminine Socialite, or the tough, business-like Power Broker. Maybe standing in front of hordes of screaming fans is more your thing? Charlotte and Sebastian know a thing or two about fame and their luscious locks are all part of the rock star look! Maybe you long to be an iconic actor like the Legend, or appear in a fantasy epic as the Elven Princess. Whatever you’ve dreamed of being or doing, Medusa has the look to help you get there.

The special day is fast approaching – look forward to the Lockwood Wedding set next week! If it’s not your special day, then you’d better send a little something so they know you’re thinking of them. The Gift Machine has plenty of knick-knacks available this Wednesday to make sure the happy couple can start furnishing their new apartment together after their fantastic wedding! Member of the exclusive nightclub x7 can take advantage of early access to the Lockwood Wedding Set this week.

5. Heavy Ink Reining Blades Tattoos
Heavy Water, continuing their release of the new Obsidian and Ivory tattoo collection, the Reining Blades designs bring the perfect edginess any dungeon warrior craves. These tattoos are meant to be worn with your existing clothing, and if you don’t have clothing that matches, Heavy Water has provided Bare Canvas torsos free of charge for male and females to proudly display your ink!

The Knight outfit is perfect for courtly gentlemen, or hardened warriors. The King and Queen outfits combine elegance and lavishly intricate detail.

    Individual pieces of the Juggernaut Steampunk clothing items will go from $0.49 – $1.49 each or bundled for $3.99 (entire outfit). The furniture also offers a bundle at $4.99, though it looks like there is a bundle to rule them all. Check the Mall starting Wednesday for more details.

    CCP Games owns the Dust 514 space where Slay lives, and I believe they have more plans for it down the road (not sure if it includes Slay or just other parts of the space), but there is nothing to announce at this time.

The ad/picture for the Medieval set perfectly highlights my most major gripe with Home (aside from no custom sountrack support when it’s such a small piece of code), specifically for the costume pieces/sets I pay for. The Home developers REALLY need to put a bit of effort into separating your (our) Avatar’s hands, from what they hold in their hands.

It’s so odd (and by odd I mean lame) that you have a nice armor set like that but you have to choose between having the matching gauntlets for the armor OR holding a sword and having to look rediculous with bare hands.

And also not having them as seperate slots means you can’t hold swords or items with the full one piece costumes. For me in particular, I can’t hold the lightsabers I’ve bought…..including the $5 ones with my STAR WARS costumes. It drives me crazy I can’t have my Chewbacca or C-3P0 hold lightsabers.

That being my major gripe, you guys are doing pretty good. But that’s just my most wanted change to Home because it’s SO disheartening.

New Granzella suits :) Hopefully we can use them at the new beach soon that Japan just got. Any news on it for us?

    No news at this time. Granzella brings over what Granzella wants (though we always encourage them to bring more, faster).

I like the Juggernaut Steampunk Adventure Pack do you know how many adventure packs are Juggernaut going to make and when are we getting the Granzella Hot Beach for Two. Nice update keep up the good work. Can you please ask veemee to add a single player map to NML thanks Glass

Steampunk items with low active slots nice. But the Veemee age of swords stuff is a bit odd. Shield in the right hand, sword in the right hand. You have the ability make items for both hands that would make more sense with these items….

Steampunk items with low active slots numbers nice. But is the developers going to revisit the old active items already here?

All that looks real great. Bet anyone’s looking forward to trying all that! Any word on new Novus Prime missions and content? I would really enjoy more new Novus Prime missions and adventures! And when is Mercia gonna be out? I’m very anxious to play that game! I’ve forgotten how to sign up for the Midway Cash Carnival Sweepstakes. How do I get in and win the cool prizes? Please tell me.

Yay for Granzella releasing new swim gear!

Regarding the “Neck Towel with Bikini (Leaf Green, Men)” item listed in the breakdown… Any word on whether this is separates or a one-piece full body suit since it is clumped together in the descriptions at the end of the video? I hope I won’t be forced to get the towel wet (personal pet peeve).

That Granzella leaf green swimsuits are looking good! I can’t wait to get the tattoos too! I wonder if they will be releasing more? Also I can’t wait to get the wedding set from x7 too. :)

A nice update, and love the constant flow of Granzella items we’re getting, thankyou :)

Silverado2366, the swiming your seeing is from Japans Granzella Island. Hopefully in a future update we will be able to do the same.

This update looks sweet, Steampunk looks awesome! Can we have more steampunk items, especially if Juggernaut is making them. What about the animal companions that did not make it to X7 last week? Will we see those this week also? 👀

    The Rare Animal collection from Lockwood has been delayed for a very special purpose. Bear with us, but I think the community will really like what we have planned for them. ;-)

    If you want more Juggernaut goodness, be sure to share your love for their stuff on the Home forums. They keep up on our forums, and I’m sure would appreciate to hear your compliments and feedback: http://us.playstation.com/home-forums

+ Jacked-Assassin on July 9th, 2012 at 4:36 pm said:

1. Juggernaut Steampunk Adventure Pack – I may or may not buy…. Leaning toward may not…. But only because it sounds like a game minus the game.

6. VEEMEE’s Medieval Collection – Maybe just coincidence but I feel like my Skyrim example about NML was taken out of context. Still I already bought all 3 outfits & the knights gloves from x7.

7. Granzella Spring Swimwear – Forget the Swimwear! How were they swimming?! That’s what I really want!

8. Konami Raver Items – I want bikini bottoms for the 2 glowing bikini tops for my female avatar.

Hello Cade Peterson , just a little comment on something that is starting to bug me out .
Names of people , places or furniture, i see them at the bottom of my screen and they never fade away , if im talking to a friend of mine, somewhat close to me i see his or her name at the bottom of my screen, and if he or she says a long line, my friend`s name is in the way , so i have to walk away somewhat to read what he/she said.
Same thing with Furniture , if im standing by a table or anything else, the names never fade away, causing my avatar to either look down , up , sides. All these names need to fade away .
Something else , you guys need to reduce the amount of items 1 single active items takes, i placed 4 simple active item lights in my Loot Space apartment and then i was left with only 12 regular items , that needs to change.

+ Solace_Sanctuary on July 10th, 2012 at 10:41 am said:

Yeah… Hi… totally random and unrelated question Cade. The melodies in the two preview videos, those aren’t by chance available for purchase somewhere are they? I’m guessing since I couldn’t track them down, they were made specifically for those vids. I was just wondering cause I really like them. Especially the Steampunk one. Thanks c:

Hello Cade, looking good today, LOL………………..on with business , not thrill about the same bathing suits with different colorsfrom Granzella but im sure will appeal to someone .
I love the new Crystals Seashores just because of 1 item and 1 item only , The Lounge chairs.
All the previous personal spaces/clubhouse have lounge chairs in which you can only sit , that would P.me off, i mean thats the point of having lounge chairs to LAY DOWN .
Now , it would be great if those lounge chairs were on sale , individually with the LAY DOWN feature .
I also agree with Ra The Sun Kiss….lol the name thing of members and furniture , really need to fade away .
Active items too , 1 active item takes the place of 22 regular item , thats a bit much .

awesome!, love the steampunk outfit wasnt a big fan of the steampunk top previously available in the store, and the furniture would give more life to my paris clocktower space i barely use it but that would be a great match!, although i do agree with some of the players that being able to use swords or other handheld items while wearing the gloves u see fit would be nice, like having those items in the accesories slot, and some new animations for the avatars would be nace (dances, actions, poses ,ect)

The poor guy in the leaf-green speedos looks cold, like snapped-off & lost forever frozen cold… Just remember developers, if you can over state the bumps on the female form, then I’m sure, for the sake the the other half of humanity’s masculinity you could at least go to the the trouble of understating the male form. It’s not the 1950’s anymore America, you don’t have to get offended at a possible discreet bump…
