PlayStation Home Goes Green for St. Patrick’s Day

Cade Peterson's Avatar + Posted by Cade Peterson on Mar 13, 2013 // Community Manager, PlayStation Digital Platforms

This week in PlayStation Home, things get a little greener just in time for St Patrick’s Day and new dance moves groove their way into our hearts. Exomechs have also arrived just in case you want to stomp around in a mech body suit, plus much more!

VEEMEE – St Patrick’s Day, Billabong + Locomotions

St Patrick’s Day

From shamrocks to shenanigans join VEEMEE in celebrating St Patrick’s Day. Enjoy the craic on St Patrick’s Day with your very own Leprechaun Suit. Relax in the company of the amazing Leprechaun Companion. Look refined with the Irish Top Hat and Beard Bundle. And what St Patrick’s Day would be complete without a Pot of Gold to liven up your apartment?

Get all the VEEMEE St Patrick’s Day items in the St Patrick’s Day Value Pub Bundle and get The Irish Pub personal space with Darts game. If you own The London Pub you also get an additional discount on the St Patrick’s Day Value Pub Bundle. An Irish Pub is the best place to celebrate Paddy’s day.

Go! Locomotions

VEEMEE would like to introduce “Go!” their new range of locomotion items. Go prehistoric with the “VelociRacer” ridable raptors in green, blue and pink. Surf’s up with the cool “Billabong – Surfboard And Wave” with two authentic Billabong surfboards. Try out the flying “Helicopter Beanie”, show off your circus skills with the “Balance Ball”, get abducted by the “Flying Saucer & Tractor Beam” and the “Astronaut Helmet” is out of this world.

I just may get the dances. Looking good.

But what really looks good is the Irish Pub. Hopefully the bundle isn’t doesn’t cost much. I’ll be out of a job on April 30th.

Wow! These blog entries are getting later and later. I used to look forward to Monday’s blogs because I knew that I’d find out what was coming this week on Home. Once Home comes back online, I don’t need to see the blog. I can just go on and see for myself. I’m fully expecting to see next week’s blog entry on Thursday afternoon since each one is later than the last. It will be just as useful then as it is on a Wednesday afternoon. Why not shock us and post before it’s blatantly obvious or is that asking too much?

My wardrobe/furniture problem is fixed, for now that is. I wanted to thank whoever helped fix this problem, and you Cade for passing the info on to the proper people. Also, I had a question regarding the Bramblenook Farm. There’s a special axe you can buy that increases the wood you get, but when you go to the space for the first time, you get an axe with the same name. Is there a difference between the two? And that house is just really amazing. I also bought that Irish Pub, a very nice house. Nice update!

    We had a little mini-update last Friday aiming to address this particular issue. It appears on all fronts that it worked perfectly.

    As for the axe, I am not sure. Perhaps ask the question in the Home general forum. There are several Bramblenook experts who will likely know the answer. Here’s a link directly to it: http://community.us.playstation.com/t5/PlayStation-Home/bd-p/22046

Would be cool to switch up the music in X7. Maybe put a little Deadmau5 in the mix. Once a month music mix up would be great.

Those 80’s moves are RAD so does the Rubik’s cube background (I wonder if that’s the personal space coming soon) and I like those awesome bikes, great update.

Is the storage issue ever going to be fixed or will we have to wait for the next core update for something else to go wrong.

Hmm, tempted for that pub pack. Is it limited-time? And how much is it for London Pub owners (like my IRL Home-y)?

Good to read on the wardrobe issues getting ironed out. I’ve spent time chucking everything on my folks’ accounts into Storage for the time being. Tangentially, could we have an alphabetical sort option? I dunno why Sony’s gaming systems seem so shy toward that. Maybe they’re afraid of their library being compared to a real one? At least there’s no Dewey sort option (though it wouldn’t really surprise me to see that implemented first).
