PlayStation Home: Uproar Debuts, New Halloween Outfits, and More

Cade Peterson's Avatar Posted by on Oct 15, 2012 // Community Manager, PlayStation Digital Platforms

This Wednesday, October 17th, new free-roaming, third-person shooter, “Uproar,” hits Home, Konami brings some devilishly delightful Halloween-themed outfits, we proudly introduce new Home publisher JAM Games, releases another of their fantastic machinimas and more!

Here’s what you can enjoy this week:

1. Lockwood – Uproar + Weekly Update

Uproar is a frantic new third-person shooter exclusive to PlayStation Home. It pulls out all the stops to bring you an experience unlike anything seen on the platform before. The game is extremely easy to jump into and play — the controls and gameplay will be instantly familiar to anyone who has played a third-person shooter before. However, there are some very interesting tweaks in place to spice up the gameplay and keep it all feeling fresh. We think it’ll give you and your friends countless hours of fun, battling it out within the Uproar Arena.


You can choose to fight on the side of either of our two gangs, the Outlaws or the Swyfts, as they battle for respect within the Uproar Arena. Each gang has its own unique set of clothing available within the inventory screen (all of which is wearable outside of the game), as well as a set of gang booths in the Uproar Lobby to hang out in with your fellow gang members and chat before you go and battle it out in the Arena. Be sure to let your rival gang know what you think of them with the full range of taunts available for use within the Arena!

Starter Pack

Also back by popular demand, the Cauldron of the Sunless Kingdom returns just in time for the spookiest holiday of the year.

2. JAM Games – Race On!

At Jam Games we’d like to say a huge hello to Sony Home members in the USA and beyond! We’re racing onto the scene with our first collection that includes a range of male and female clothing inspired by the world of motor sport! We also have a small range of furniture to complement our Garage Apartment! We can’t wait to see how you guys use it…. whether you convert it into an urban apartment, turn it into an underground nightclub or use it for something completely different! We’d love to see your pictures, visit us at

Now get to the starting grid… JAM Games are ready to race!

Check out their new apartment and clothing!

Um ok…FUBAR and Uproar are great for all the fams and teenage boys, but for the rest of us, there’s alot of stuff missing from this blog update, so I’m going to double check and ask if this other stuff is still coming, as mentioned on the official forum and alphazone:

-Cutteridge Ghost Stories update from Juggernaut
-Savage Manor, The Morbids, and Wings from Ndreams
-Granzella Flight Attendant bundle and Doctor/Nurse outfits

Are these things still coming this week?

    I can confirm that all of those things in question will be available this Wednesday. They were left out because at the time the blog content was locked, their promotional assets were not received yet. Still though, you’re very on top of current events, so I hope you enjoy them all!


+ erickafollie on October 15th, 2012 at 11:22 am said:

By the way , any news on the new nDreams wings, i thought they were going to be out with this Update ? .
Cant wait to get my hands on those , im blocking myself from ever thinking that i bought 2 set of wings from Hellfire Games, apparentely not everything is big in Texas .

    nDreams’ next batch of Locomotion items are not out quite yet. They’re still in QA, but I’m sure they’ll be out in the near future.

    Make a friend and then I recommend hitting the Gift Machine by Lockwood—there are several goodies you can receive for free, if you and a friend send them to each other. This month, they have a lot of cool pink items available to commemorate breast cancer awareness month, but if pink isn’t your thing, there are always a few other cool goodies in there to check out.


+ LiLBlueEyes on October 15th, 2012 at 11:53 am said:

The Bomber Girl outfits are sold as individual clothes, so you don’t have to buy the pre-rendered face….
The Halloween costumes look cool, but will probably be very pricey..
Are we getting a Halloween space, Japan already has theirs up…

    + Cade Peterson on October 15th, 2012 at 4:27 pm said:

    The Bomber Pin-ups are available as full outfits (that allow customized emote functionality) as well as individual parts that allow you to mix and match.

    Halloween isn’t here quite yet, so stay tuned! I’m sure we have some tricks and treats up our sleeves yet to share.

Please can you confirm if we’re getting any Granzella content this week, in particular the flight attendant outfit?
Its mentioned elsewhere but would be nice if you could confirm thats correct.

    CONFIRMED! You may expect the Nurse and Cabin Attendant items this week from Granzella.


+ THrules on October 15th, 2012 at 3:23 pm said:

Regarding the new Halloween costumes: can we get those outfits for our own avatar? and with the new locomotion system we should be able to have the same actions. the pre made avatars give no room for individual creativeness. I would like the Halloween outfits separately. I remember posting outfits like this in the suggestion thread but made it very clear for it to not be a pre-made costume. And also with these outfits you can only be 1 skin color, you got it right with the bomber girl pinups, no more pre-made outfits!


+ Shinra_Soldier7 on October 15th, 2012 at 3:43 pm said:

I love the Halloween clothes but all of the Halloween stuff are in mall updates. Last year broght tons of free Halloween items from many developers but I have yet to see anything so far this year besides the LOOT Killcount 2 even in the theatre next week in which we get a axe head item. Will we see many or just some cool halloween freebies in coming weeks?

    6pm Pacific is when the maintenance is supposed to finish, so Central time would be at 8pm.


+ MistyRainne on October 15th, 2012 at 4:31 pm said:

Is the current downtime related to these things? Normally Home doesn’t go down for maintenance during the afternoon.

Uproar looks fun. I’ll take a swing at it, but if it turns out to be just an elaborate way to milk money out of people in order for them to get something out of it, I won’t get attached to it. I don’t put down emotional roots in hostile ground, even if I do have the money.

Also, where’s the eye candy males? Common, mediocre designers always seem to overlook that.

Haha. Ill be wiating then! Thanks for the reply Cade

Also, JAM Games’ items have been delayed. Sorry to get everyone’s hopes up, but they’ll be out in the very near future. In the meantime, I hope everyone jumps in and checks out Uproar. Choose your side, and begin the gang war!

Wewt, thanks for the reply Cade. Glad to see all that stuff is still coming. I’m going to be spending a fortune until the end of October, lol.

Ndreams wings aren’t coming out this week though? But Savage Manor and the Morbids are? Is that correct? I’m a bit confused there after seeing reply to comment 3.

Hahahaha, last PS Home update in November (2011) bricked my PS3… Red screen!

PS Home never!


+ Traumatizer on October 15th, 2012 at 7:14 pm said:

The new speedwings look great, but the hoovering animation of the avatar looks weird, some minor adjustments would help. And since they disappear when you pose or dance maybe add an emote or 2 while hoovering, we did spend $4 after all.

Werebat costume looks cool, I wish there’s animated werewolf costume avalible (arrrrooooOOOOoooo).

Awesome update :) How much for the Konami Halloween outfits? Also I’m sad the Ndream wings are not coming out this week T.T

    + Cade Peterson on October 16th, 2012 at 9:53 am said:

    They will be priced at $3.99, and come in a variety of colors. I’m going with the red Werebat, though the “glowing” Death Knight looks like he’d be the hit of any party.


+ Conrad_Max on October 15th, 2012 at 9:32 pm said:

It all looks great. Uproar looks action packed. But with the fact that we’ll be able to wear the clothes out of game, I can see that the wars will continue outside of Uproar and into other areas of Home. Maybe an expansion of the “text wars” some people participate in, but this time with gang colors and gear.

Other than that, like I said, it does look good. I am looking forward to the fight.

An arsenal of pinups, 8 various female racing suits, nurse outfit variations, and female only flight attendant costumes. Please tell me there was more content than this for the week. Something awesome that hasn’t made it to the blog.
