Game Mechanics – Magic Rug + Racing Gate

Game Mechanics is back again this week with some fun new personalized items. First off, they are offering three items you can post your text on: a Whiteboard, a Doormat, and a 2-sided Large Sign. In addition, they are releasing a Magical Leaf Rug. When you or your friends walk on this rug, the leaves part creating an open path to walk on the grass. It really is magic. And lastly, this week they are offering up a Start/Finish Gate. You set up the gate and tell it you want it to track your time. When you go through the gate, the timer starts. And it does not stop until you go through it again. This is great for those people who have set up a space as a track. You can finally see who is the fastest going through it. Plus, it works with locomotions for all those who have been begging to see which are the fastest. As you can see, Game Mechanics is definitely bringing the fun.

Sexy Bartender

The Sexy Bartender is a new face in the Bartender series. Sexy outfits and a friendly, flirty attitude is sure to keep her tips high. Other sexy tops, bottoms, and heels are available as well as a lineup of attractive natural hair styles. With looks like that, maybe she’s the reason business is thriving.

VEEMEE – Mini Motos, Billabong + Street Styles

Mini Motos

Fans of speed and miniaturisation rejoice! VEEMEE releases a range of super-powered mini-motorbikes this week.. There are four different styles of bike to satisfy the tiny petrol heads inside all of us. For bouncing around on the sand dunes there’s the Mini Moto Quad Bike. For the man or woman around town there’s the rather more conservative Mini Moto Road Bike. If offroading around the rolling hills of Acorn Meadows Park is your thing then you can turn some heads with the Mini Moto Dirt Bike. Finally for the ultimate in pocket-size performance, there’s always the Mini Moto GT. Each comes in a choice of two colours and there is also a discounted bundle featuring all the bikes. VROOOM!

Billabong

There is a new selection of amazing clothes in the Billabong Store this week. Choose from a selection of new hats, shirts, shorts, skirts, sweaters, vests, trousers, dresses and 2-part bikini bundles. Don’t miss the amazing White Bezzle Fleece for men and the Off Black Beach Me sweater for women. Complete your female avatar’s spring wardrobe with the stunning, must-have Whitecap In Ur Dreams skirt.

Street Styles

There was a time when an authentic street look wasn’t much more than a pair of high-tops a basketball shirt and snap-back cap. Those days are gone! VEEMEE is proud to announce Street Style, a range of clothing inspired by the glitz and glamour of the urban music superstar lifestyle. Choose from high contrast patent leather jackets, bold printed material on a mix of close and loose fitting garments accessorised with heavy gold chains and diamond encrusted pendants. The Blue & Yellow Superstar Neon Jacket for men is something special and don’t miss the Pink Megastar Dress and Jacket for women.
Fortune favours the bold so get Street Style!

Decent update, but I’d like to know when Acorn Meadows Park will finally be fully functional. Either you can’t do the boats and bikes or you can’t do the food carts. Makes it a pain when trying to do some of the photo challenges.

PS HOME should be connected to the PS4..in ways that its part of the HOME SCREEN..like the XMB. In other words..HOME should be the HOME SCREEN for PS4..running faster and smoother and allow our friends to see our AVATAR and if ew wanted to have a group chat before we jump into a game..it would go to our PS4 HOME APT. NOW THAT WOULD BE COOL..BUT knowing SONY..ITS NOT GONNA HAPPEN..

Ah interesting not that many post for PS Home, is it that people are not populating home like that anymore. Or is it they don’t like to post about the wealth of content that keeps on coming?

kinda okay update – really wish peakvox would be updated – if i was in a wheelchair in real life I would be offended with the wheelchairs you brought out – my daughter-in-law said “Im not even in one and Im offended” – just sayin

    Why be offended? They look fun, and offer another way to zip around Home. Many folks have requested them for years, including many who rely on them in real life.

@12 – tweetybelle:

I think you have to receive it from a friend of yours to use it. (unless you’re saying your received them from your friends already..not sure).

They say you send them to friends from what I can see on the post above.

Please Playstation Team let me say something really important for me.
Playstation Home for me, has been one of the cooles experiences I have experienced after buying a console,without a game yet, when I first bought my PS3 before tons of games I have.But I never got the fun I get everyday, meeting new people, chating, dancing, plaing, havinf fun actually.
Playstation 4 is a must have for me at the end of the year.
Even doesn’t knowing what is all about, if it’s SONY for me it’s awesome,always will be like that for me and I think that for many people also.
So I want to swear to you,please,keep Home as a tool inside the amazing Playstation world, to meet new people and keep experiencing the virtual life, that I always loved.
And finally but not less important, thanks for make it happen,and hopefully, keep it alive :)
For this space where I can share my opinion,and for caring for us, the players, the community,Thank you so much Sony!You all are amazing!
