New to PlayStation Home: Inspect Items

Paul Sullivan's Avatar + Posted by Paul Sullivan on Sep 18, 2013 // Community Manager, PlayStation Digital Platforms

Inspect Feature

This week sees the launch of a new Inspect system in Home, allowing players to see what items other players are wearing and where they got them. So, if you spot someone wearing a great outfit or using an awesome portable item you can quickly and easily find out more about them.

To use the feature simply walk up to the player you wish to inspect, select them and choose the Inspect option from the menu. This will bring up a screen showing your avatar and a list of all the items the other player is currently wearing or using. You can see details on the item, whether it is a reward or purchasable and where it can be acquired. If it is an item of clothing then you can also preview how it would look on your avatar and, if it is purchasable, you will be able to directly purchase the item from the Inspect screen.

Free Gift For All!

Everyone who enters PlayStation Home today will receive a free Totino’s T-shirt for your avatar. Have your taste buds died from eating so many bland snacks? Bring them back to life with Totino’s new Bold rolls! Then keep your eyes peeled for more fun from Totino’s.

Lockwood Drop Science Batch 2

Batch 2 of Lockwood’s Drop Science line of outfits has arrived! This week check out the Fo Shizzlin’ cap pack.

Drop Science brings together the hottest hip hop trends and some old skool ghetto fabulous in this latest clothing range available now in the store and Gift Machine. Sleek urban threads decked out with hard edged rings and gold plated bracelets. Drop Science’s signature piece is the cap and every cap comes twisted every which way, so you can switch up your look without losing your identity.

Break out some Drop Science poses for suitably relaxed stances to go with your tricked out ‘fit. Throw in some flava or just chill; it’s all good.

And once you’ve got the look, you need a place to show it off with likeminded souls. Bring it all together in the Drop Science Subway; the perfect urban hang out. There are even some sweet rewards on offer.

Lockwood Relaxed Poses

It’s easy to get caught up in rushing from place to place in PlayStation Home, hurrying to try out everything on offer. Swimming, running, playing games – everything is available somewhere. But sometimes it’s nice to just lie back and take stock of your surroundings, or quietly chat to friends.

With this latest animation pack, Lockwood provides every pose you could need for a relaxing time, from lying around to sitting about. Head to the store, and then head home – the store owner might be a little perturbed if you kick back right there!

Lockwood Mechsuit Pilots

IFG Interplanetary News
Astra Corps Mission Control reported the loss of a further Solar Fusilier Unit this morning. The incident occurred in Sector Sigma Eta 35, a sector previously deemed safe by an elite Abyss Trooper unit. Little information is currently available, but foul play is suspected and Wraith involvement has not yet been ruled out.

In response to the incident, Astra Corps has dispatched a squad of specialized Mechsuit Pilots to investigate further. These highly trained pilots are outfitted in the latest flight suits created by Iron Fusion Laboratories. The suits incorporate materials recovered from captured Wraith units obtained by the Panthabot Taskforce. It is hoped that this technological advancement will help turn the tide in the on-going struggle against the Wraith forces.

Lockwood Gift Machine Release Update

This week it’s a mixed bag from Lockwood, with an assortment of oddities and attractions added to the Gift Machine and store. Giftable goodies include alien eyes in a variety of colors and a couple of pairs of thigh-high leather stilettos. There are also some stiletto boots in the store for those who want to treat themselves as well as their pals.

Motorbikes roar into the store once more, but this time around they’re seats. Put them in your lounge for a real talking point that won’t drip oil all over your carpets. They’re in all your favorite biking colors to match the originals, so you can have one in your apartment and one outside it. There are giftable versions too for those with motoring mad friends!

Clearasil Update

All you “school dashers” get ready! Our “Ultra Fast Back to School Dash” game in PlayStation Home will be updated today with a new nighttime environment. It seems that the school dance didn’t turn out so well, thanks to the appearance of zombies! Skate your way to safety through the darkened hallways, avoiding obstacles and collecting products for a speed boost. As before, high scores will be posted to a leaderboard, and you’ll be graded on your performance. This time, an “A” will earn you a pair of rocket skates for your Home avatar. And for the high achievers (a.k.a. teachers’ pets)? If you earn an “A+” on both levels, a special golden version of the rocket skates will be yours!

Granzella Chinese Costumes

Chinese style suits and miniskirts have arrived!

Granzella introduces the new Mandarin Suit Set, Mini Mandarin Dress Set, and Facial Hair 6-piece Set. Show off your legs with the Mini Mandarin Dress, drape yourself in gold with the Mandarin Suit, and choose the perfect style of facial hair to top it all off with the Facial Hair 6-piece Set! The women’s Mini Mandarin Dress Set features a rose patterned dress, lace gloves, high heel sandals, and a Chignon hairstyle with two high buns. Available in black, blue, and red. The men’s Mandarin Suit Set features a gold embroidered suit jacket, suit pants, gloves, shoes, and a ponytail hairstyle. Available in black, indigo, and crimson.

Home Update, 9-18-2013, 01

Also available for men is the Facial Hair 6-piece Set, featuring handlebar and drooping mustaches and a goatee. A near and a far piece are available in each style to help you find one that best suits your face!

    Thanks. And I agree about the inspect feature. I got to play around with it some over the past few days and I really like what it offers, and how it operates. It’s a very cool addition to Home!

    The second stage of the Clearasil game has been opened, and the Totino’s shirt can be obtained by re-entering the Hub. You might have to exit and re-enter Home itself in rare cases.

Man. I wish there were new game space(s) every week rather than just items (I get bored mostly). Is there anyway to get some GTA 5 virtual items at PS Home? I really hope PS Home leaves beta soon on the next firmware update(I really don’t know how long the beta last for).

Just wondering… Will there be anything special in PS Home for the release for Killzone Shadow Fall? The Defend the Plaza event for Killzone 3 was pretty fun, it had great rewards, and the jetpack exclusive for pre-ordering from the kiosk in the Plaza was cool. Really looking forward to this next installment of Killzone!!!! By the way- the Inspect feature is nice!

Kills me how a game named “Diabolo” has more wardrobe parity between genders than the regular contenders (glarin’ at you, Granzella!).

Some players work hard NOT to be a look-a-like, cookie cutter image of most avatars on Home. Inspect has it’s place. However, there should be a way to opt out or deselect the inspect option. I no longer wear some of my rare hard to find or discontinued items. Please fix or update the ability to not be inspected. Thanks
