PlayStation Home Update

Cade Peterson's Avatar + Posted by Cade Peterson on Jan 16, 2013 // Community Manager, PlayStation Digital Platforms

Today, Lockwood’s Gift Machine has a Unicorn (squeee!), nDreams brings sexy Venice Beach even closer, Granzella has a bunch of goodies for us, and more. Check out all this and more this week in PlayStation Home.

nDreams – Venice Beach

Are you the King of the beach or the ultimate beach babe? If so then the new Venice Beach clothing range is perfect for you. With new muscular torsos for the guys and some gorgeous swimsuits for the ladies you will be the envy of everyone else on the beach. The ladies’ swimsuits go great with the High Heels locomotion.

Lockwood Publishing – Update

LKWD_Horse_160113_1280x720

A soft breeze stirs the long grasses. Sunlight dapples the dusty ground through the trees, their leaves red and gold. On the horizon, the rusted out hulk of an old steam train begs exploration and a snuffling sound in the grass outside the perimeter fence warrants further investigation. The only thing is, that fence is so far off. Walking there would take so long. If only… Oh, wait!

Lockwood has temporarily left the dinosaur rearing and lion-taming behind, and gone for something a little simpler, but just as exciting – Horses of the Prairie! Including mustangs and ponies, plus something truly magical for the Gift Machine.

Unicorn_160113_1280x720

As a special bonus, horse owners (and Unicorn owners) get free reign in the Prairie public space! Explore the landscape, collect rewards, but best of all, let your horse cut loose and canter along those dusty trails. So mount up and get riding!

I for one hope Home for PS4 if they plan to make it for that system be of higher quality.I’m kinda at a loss to why Home looks like a PS2 game and handles like a PS game.Hair’s don’t move and look super stiff I guess we use alot of hairspray.We need more room in our wardrobe tired of my stuff going to storage.Also wish we had more categories such as the following:

Hair:For hair obviously
Head Accessories:Anything like a cute rose behind the ear, headbands, bows, horns ect
Hats:Self explanatory cus they shouldn’t be attached to certain hairs
Face:For face paint, tattoos, piercings ect
Glasses:Got to have some style to your Avi
Earrings:No need to explain
Neck:For necklaces, scarfs ect
Under shirts:T-Shirts, tanktops, dress shirts ect
Jackets:Cus we should be able to layer clothes
Back:Backpacks, Wings ect
Pants:We all need to cover our most valuable area
Belts:I like to be able to wear any belt I choose
Socks:Socks, stockings ect
Shoes:Not recommended walking on Home barefoot
Tattoo:Cus I don’t feel we should have to wear certain stuff just to have a cool tattoo
Body Shape:This can have voluptious, preteen, teen, normal, buff, chubby, fat or fantasy stuff like centaur ect

Come on now we all know Home would make so much more money this way.idk Maybe I’m just a dreamer but I would love Home to someday be like that.Plus I don’t think our poses and dances should be an activated item.It should be permanently in our R1 section once bought.I can’t look sexy posing with my bought poses and have a companion out.

P.S.I want Marla’s outfit from Midway 3′s Whack Off.I would also like the Ninja-Swallow from Peakvox in seperate pieces head torso hands legs feet you get what I mean.Plus when do we get the victorian maid out fit Japan got on Dec 5th and the nun outfit on Dec 19th? Sorry for the long post :P

    + Cade Peterson on January 16th, 2013 at 9:03 am said:

    For the Midway stuff, we’d have to encourage Mass Media to consider making it for public release, rather than just Marla getting to keep it to herself. ;-) As for Japanese items, it really depends on who makes it and if they’re interested in importing it here—that’s always on the 3rd party to decide if and when.

@RemyReznor
The victorian maid comes from the Shoei stuff which I believe is exclusive to Japan. i doubt it’ll get released here.

this update is OK.. finally something new for x7 and the only thing that i am interested in is the horse of the prairie thats about it.. the vinec beach is just another advantage kids can buy they muscular looking body and Rome around home with mean intentions and messing up the home experience.. Just a question., will we be getting a major home update this year, like one that offers more space slots, or betting animations or better face expressions? Just curious // Thanks

    Re: Home update—we’ll be getting another Home update or two for sure this year with upgraded and additional features and improved functionality. A major update like our fall 2010 update with new districts, etc., is not in the plans, though we do have more quests coming in the near future. Everyone’s been asking for more of those, so we’re planning a regular release of them this year.

@RemyReznor

I agree with you, i dont see why hats have to come with certain hair style’s . And there should be more options for customization. Granzella hats do give us a lot more ways of wear are hats by putting in the head accecory section. But in short of a major home, aka Home 2.0, where pretty much stuck with what we have. And as far as the graphic’s, That has to deal with the technical limitations of Onlime MMO’s on consoles. Basicall need a lot more RAM for those effects. Hopefully when PS4 ,along with PS Home 2, drops it can solve these problems.

First PSHome was up before the Blog Update even came out. This is not working. Second, it was said that this was done for accuracy and prices to be added, and I don’t see no prices. There is no need for prices anyways, even if you do, this may cause more in-accurate information. So, lets just put things back to the way it was, and get the blog update before the Home update, please.

    Wow, that must have been years ago… like 2008 or 2009. It’s so vastly different, you will not recognize it. Since you’re sort of a born-again noobie for Home (no insult intended), I would recommend asking a veteran for a tour to get oriented. Here’s a link to the Home forums. Feel free to browse there, and even ask for someone to take you around and show you their favorite spots, things to do and games to play. The Home community is very friendly and quick to help others. http://community.us.playstation.com/t5/PlayStation-Home/bd-p/22046
    (Would others reading this maybe send this be interested in helping show him around?)

Home is cool. But I must express my opinion that Christmas was absolutely terrible this year. I’m glad i was on there 3 years ago when prizes and stuff had meaning. I’ve spent tons of money on there, and I enjoy everything I have. I just wish we had better quality items. Christmas disappointed me, entirely.

    Everything is a learning lesson, and every year there’s good feedback for us (we listen to everything)! Some years, people get mad because we keep it very similar to the last, others always want us to experiment with new ideas. This year was very experimental, and while some enjoyed various aspects of the events (Halloween – NYE), we’re being mindful of all feedback when planning and developing future events. There’s more coming, that I can guarantee, plus quests are coming back in the near future too. Stay tuned! It’s always a new day in PlayStation Home.

Yeah, I’m really not digging on the post-update blog thing. I kept quiet, gave it a shot… but the fact is, I found just about everything myself about, according to the comment timestamps (and factoring in my timezone vs the blog’s timezone), 3 hours before the blog happened. Had to do some digging for some of it (seriously, if you’re gonna make the blog AFTER the update, at least make the new tab in new and featured show ONLY that week’s content…), but still.

Why is Home under maintenance?! Seriously, you had PSN down for almost two days for maintenance, and then you close home as soon as it’s back?! On a FRIDAY NIGHT?! Sorry, I’m going to violate your “DON’T BE A JERK” request for a minute because this sort of crap is just intolerable. I understand maintenance for update day, but why would you make it impossible to get into home for three days after said update? Why should I even bother paying for items in game if I can’t rely on the service?
