2. PlayStation Home Mall Update

Magnus is back in his 60th volume of the Virtual Item Showcase. This week he showcases items from the new Shark and Donkey teeth from Lockwood to new Locomotion items from nDreams. Be sure to pick up the free Homelings Head Extender too! Check out the video below for all the details.

3. nDreams – Aurora 1.6 Update

With Blueprint: Home, F.U.B.A.R and other projects going on, there has been a lot to do at nDreams. We’ve made a couple of additions to Aurora 1.6, as well as some movement of existing Aurora favorites, so watch the video below to get a quick overview of where you want to head when you set foot in Aurora.

For the first time, you can take to the skies of Aurora with your friends. Blimps lets you play a game of tag with 32 people. You’re given a free blimp to start, but then you’re able to purchase new blimps with different designs and better maneuverability to help you avoid being tagged! If you do purchase a new blimp you will be rewarded with Aurora XP as well to help you level up and reach Level 100 — netting you the Aurora Champion Apartment.

This is just the start — we want to hear from you and allow our community to help shape how Blimps evolves over time. We are looking for your feedback with what you think should be next for Blimps. Head over to the forums and let nDreams know what you think.

Following the launch of the Space Station clubhouse, on land the Casino is celebrating Thanksgiving this Monday. Some people may think it’s a little too early to start even thinking about this holiday, but it’s right on time for Canadian Thanksgiving.
