PlayStation Home Update: Sunset Lounge Expands the Dream Universe

Cade Peterson's Avatar + Posted by Cade Peterson on Apr 24, 2013 // Community Manager, PlayStation Digital Platforms

This week in PlayStation Home, Lockwood introduces the Sunset Lounge, Atom Republic launches exciting new locomotions, and HellFire games has new Aqua Mounts to fly around on. There’s more below, and don’t forget to get engaged with the PlayStation Home Community on the PlayStation Forums.

Lockwood – Sunset Lounge, Air Band Animations + Lock-a-doodle Update

Sunset Lounge

The Dream Universe has always been about enjoying the finer things in life. Now, as a special thank you to all Dream Universe patrons, Lockwood have created the Sunset Lounge, an exclusive public space accessible only by owners of Dream estates.

To celebrate, two new outfits are available in the Exclusive Commerce Point. The white pinstripe suit and gold dress are the perfect attire for an afternoon of Blackjack in the Sunset Lounge’s beautiful seafront casino. Blackjack is absolutely free to play, and there are rewards for the best players.

If that all sounds too formal, then slip into some swimwear and take a dip in the incredible ocean, or feed the fish from the unique glass jetty.

Air Band Animation Pack

Rock it like a stadium star without letting a clumsy ol’ instrument get in the way. The Air Band animation pack gives you the option of that old classic air guitar, plus the lesser known air saxophone, air vocalist and air drummer. Join up with some friends and show off your rock star style!

    It depends on the individual pair of wings. Often you need to ensure they are the “locomotion” type of wings, as many of those do allow your avatar to lift up and float around.

I wanna see more Doctor Who and Pottermore!

I bought like everything for both but you guys really need to speed up load times, taking 10 minutes to load the shop and another 10 to load after buying is unacceptable.

I also really wanna hear anything about the future of home on PS4.

I’m with CherylRose… when will LOOT be putting out the Doctor Who Wave 2 item bundle? I love my TARDIS clubhouse…and I’d dig some old/new alternate interior layout skins for it! Plus, some outfits of past Doctors would be amazing! (Please gimme the 6th Doctor’s gaudy coat! LOL)

PART 1 : Am I the only one who clicks on these PS HOME updates on the blog just to see / laugh at what new crazy stuff HOME has??? lol, I remember being in the BETA in HOME years ago… I NEVER thought it would turn into the crazy “house” it is today!! :P I stepped into it again last summer I think… saw some crazy outfits and some new areas, but nothing that would catch my eye more than a few minutes. I just don’t get it I guess, but to me it just seems like a big 3D chat for people to mostly hang out in………. am I right? I’m just curious to know… do you people who actually “play” HOME actually play the mini games SONY releases or do you mostly use HOME to just to chat with people you know / people you don’t know..? Just curious. And also, this DLC reminds me of the little big planet costume DLC… just curious how many people actually buy it. Must be profitable since SONY keeps making it I guess.

Part 2: I would love / WOULD have loved to see the PS4 launch with a version of HOME.. (I say WOULD because SONY obviously didn’t mention it when it announced the PS4 and it doesn’t seem like it’s gonna be a focus or a main feature of the PS4′s menu or anything…who knows though…) but I would love to see a HOME on ps4 that CAN support VOICE chat in ANY public area within HOME, so you could walk around in this virtual world and talk to people and of course chat with all your friends in the “pregame” to a battlefield, uncharted, or socom match for example.. and also a HOME where you can watch MOVIES together and share your own music and your own videos / photos with friends too, a lot faster than is possible now… THAT is what I thought HOME was going to be on the PS3… and I think that was the original vision… just the PS3 wasn’t powerful enough to handle all that…. PS4 should be able to… so how about it SONY?? THAT is the HOME which would not just be for a niche market but would be a KILLER app for your PS4…

Still no word on PS4 either. So yes, seems like there’s a real plan there to keep going past PS3… /s
