PlayStation Home Update: Spring into Acorn Meadows Park

Cade Peterson's Avatar + Posted by Cade Peterson on May 01, 2013 // Community Manager, PlayStation Digital Platforms

This week in PlayStation Home just in time for spring, VEEMEE opens the games to the Acorn Meadows Park, the Cinco de Mayo Adventure Pack arrives from Juggernaut, and the Magic Lamp Set arrive from Granzella this week. There’s more below, and don’t forget to join the PlayStation Home Community on the PlayStation Forums.

VEEMEE – Acorn Meadows Park + MyBedroom

Acorn Meadows Park

Spring is here, and it’s time to experience the great outdoors in VEEMEE’s Acorn Meadows Park.

With wide open grassy spaces, rolling green hills, leafy hedges, oak trees and a beautiful lake, Acorn Meadows Park is the perfect place to relax, hang out with your friends and meet new people. You can exercise your dog, mess around on the lake with a friend in a pedal boat, or take a bicycle ride for two. Why not take a ride around the Park on the miniature steam train and tour the park in style. Feeling hungry or thirsty after your exercise? Buy a steaming cup of Joe from the coffee kiosk or a hot dog or ice cream cone. For the dog lovers amongst you, spend your time with your favourite VEEMEE dogs in the Dog Park or take them for a run around the Park. If you don’t have a dog yet don’t worry; you can choose from six new best friends in the Park store.

As a special welcome from VEEMEE, every player is given 200 Acorn Vouchers for free the first time they enter Acorn Meadows Park.

Use your Acorn Vouchers to enjoy the many activities available in the park. The more you do in The Park the more experience points you earn. Cash in your experience points to buy an ice cream, a coffee, or even a bike! Each time you level up you will be given even more free Acorns. There are loads of ways to earn experience points in Acorn Meadows Park. There are also lots of rewards up for grabs, with tasks and challenges galore. Can you find them all? Check out the Notice Boards around the park for more information. Acorn Vouchers can also be purchased in the Park store – buy or earn them; it’s up to you!

VEEMEE are delighted to bring a bit of nature to PlayStation Home. Over the following weeks and months, more and more challenges, rewards and activities are going to be added to Acorn Meadows through regular updates. We hope you enjoy them! We would love to build future content for you so let us know what you think by posting on the Official Home forums, sending us a tweet, or emailing them your ideas.

MyBedroom

This week VEEMEE releases the stylish Black Marble range of MyBedroom furniture, the final suite in the series. As with the previous ranges already on sale, the Black Marble suite features an interactive double bed you (and a friend) can lie on as well as wardrobes, cupboards, chests of drawers, a mirror, a vanity table with stool, and a bedside lamp. In addition to this final range VEEMEE have also released a Four Color Bundle. This bundle contains all of the items from the Teak Wood, Burgundy, Birch Wood and Black marble sets in one great value bundle. Sleep well.

Granzella – Arabian Costume, Blazers + Cheerleadering

Arabian Costume

The richly decorative exotic outfit set and matching magic lamp set have arrived! The Exotic 5-piece Set includes a top, pants, shoes, and hand accessories for both men and women. In addition, for men, a Plumed Turban is included, and for women, an Exotic Ponytail & Hair Ornament is included. The Magic Lamp Set 5-piece set includes two types of portable items, the Genie of the Lamp and Sprite of the Lamp, as well as a Genie of the Lamp Figurine, Sprite of the Lamp Figurine, and a Magic Lamp. The Genie of the Lamp and Sprite of the Lamp portable items will move around the player when used and follow by floating behind. Dress in exotic outfits, and be accompanied by a genie!

Blazers

The blazer-type school uniform has arrived, allowing you the freedom of combination!
Blazers, pants, miniskirts, hairstyles… Dress stylishly and a youthful mood will blossom from within! With each miniskirt, there are a variety of 7 types of stockings which you can freely chose to wear.

Cheerleading

With a cute and vigorous cheer, pom-poms and cheerleading outfits are available in sets, 3 colors to choose from. The iconic cheerleading pom-poms are locomotion items enabling you to perform 3 types of dance cheers.

Two types are included, the classic cute type, and a stylish sporty type. Hairstyles, shoes, and boots are tailored for each of the three sets! Each set includes 10 pieces!

Dr Pepper

ATTENTION. This is an urgent broadcast from the Dr Pepper TEN®. We have infiltrated your system. Our group has been scouring the gaming community in search of you. We know who you are and according to the prophecy, only you can liberate all of Mankind from the horrors of unmanliness.

Challenge yourself to some of the manliest missions ever imagined. Emerge victorious and you’ll be rewarded with incredibly manly avatar gear and free Dr Pepper TEN® (while supplies last).

Our shuttle is hovering in the HUB for a limited time. Find us. Your destiny awaits.

Billboard

Clearasil

We hope you’ve enjoyed your time spent on the Clearasil Kart Racing track and are happily sporting your cool racing helmet. As we promised when the game launched two weeks ago, the second reward item is now available: a custom racing jacket! This item can be earned through the accumulation of points simply by playing the game. Hopefully you are familiar with the course by now, but can you shave any seconds off your previous times? Show your friends who the best racer is by donning the custom jacket, courtesy of our friends at Clearasil.

Lockwood – Drey

Drey’s latest collection encompasses looks for day and evening. The Sweetheart outfit is smart and practical enough for meetings with its pale pink vanity case and chunky platform sandals, while the plunging top and cute collar bring enough sexiness to be a hit on the dancefloor. The Starlet oufit’s sweeping gown and fur stole are more obviously partywear, but the gown is actually made up of separates, meaning the strappy midnight blue can actually be teamed with jeans or trousers for a more casual look.

The guys have the choice of the dashing Aviator, comprising of a smart leather jacket and turn-up slacks, or the stylish Mariner, which includes a more formal jacket and loafers. Again, both outfits can be dressed up or down with the addition of jeans or shirts.

It’s all the usual versatility you’d expect from Drey.

*USER FEEDBACK*

It’s been years since I’ve used home and it has blown my mind. It’s amazing! So much fun! Here are my 2 cents.

1. Locomotion idea: teleport: avatar starts at point A, hold square button, avatar ghost walks anywhere in a 10-15 foot radius to point B, let go of square, avatar teleports to point B.

2. I’ve met some really cool couples on home, we have all mentioned having the abilities like on the Sims, to get just a little more intimate, *kiss on the cheek, or lips* *amourous hugs* u get the idea… Show more affection then blowing a kiss lol.

3. I just have to say it, Naruto costumes, I wanna have the 4th hokages clothing while keeping my Venice beach abs lol.

That’s it, I love home, although I recently lost 3million on texas Holden :( lol

PS Home is awesome, this new stuff is really exciting. But I’m not putting another cent in PS HOME till I know everything will be transferred to Playstation 4. I hope sony mentions what’s the future of ps home soon.

Nice updates as of late!
As for a few things I’d like to see in Home I have a few ideas, as yes, I’ll be happy to purchase them if they end up going into existence:
.More skin color options. The natural skin options are all lovely but like with how Plus members can change their hair and make-up to any color they can pick on a color wheel I think a similar idea would be amazing for more skin options. On my part I’ve wanted lavender skin for a very long time and I’m sure other users would like to be colors beyond the normal skin tones even if it’s a Plus only deal.
.More thong items in Home. Though I love my Cammy outfit I noticed that there’s a lack of thongs even though items that show great amounts of cleavage are everywhere. I feel that thongs would a cute and sexy addition to swimwear, lingerie and for anything else a user might use them for. (Mostly wanting them as a female option but open to men having them too.)
And lastly I have to agree with The_4th_Hokage_X on this:
.hug,kiss,couple animations.

I went to the store in Edo & found them there as bundles under “New Item”. Try that.

Something is wrong with the New and Featured Store. I can’t find any of this update’s new releases in it, just stuff from last week. Comment #12’s advice on finding the granzella items at Edo worked, but that still leaves a lot of other releases I can’t access.

@Neko_Girl_Alice:

For the mini GoKarts – Those can be found through the “Boosters” tab under Atom republic store (if anyone is stil having trouble) . Guessing all the content on this update can be found though their actual store & not the “New Items” tab.

Also, the Acorn Meadows Park kiosks seem to “break” at times & become inaccessible. Hope there’s patch update.

With Disney now owning the rights to Star Wars and the 30th anniversary arriving this month, can we expect to see anything as we did for The Empire Strikes Back? It’d be cool to finally receive some new costumes and hopefully a few companions i.e. Yoda, R2-D2, and whatnot. Any information would be great.

+ Alternate_Larz on May 4th, 2013 at 8:57 pm said:

On another note, when might we expect to see the other half of the Cantina open?
Here its been 3 years since the 30th anniversary of The Empire Strikes Back with many other personal spaces and public spaces being released in those 3 years, yet dust collects on a section of the Cantina that was supposed to open years ago. What gives?
Don’t get me wrong, I like many features on Home and glad to see some really cool virtual items coming out, but it seems the reasonable comments get ignored while pointless, kiss psn’s behind comments get plenty of attention.
