PlayStation Home Thanksgiving Update

VEEMEE Acorn Meadows Park – Thanksgiving

It’s time to celebrate Thanksgiving with your friends and family in VEEMEE’s Thanksgiving Acorn Meadows Park. VEEMEE have got a handful of brand new attractions for park visitors to try out! Brace for impact and join your friends on the Bumper Cars. Like the Bikes, there are 6 to choose from and you can get each of them as a locomotion item as well. The pedal boats have had a makeover and now look like Thanksgiving Turkeys. Share a slice of Pumpkin Pie or a Turkey Drumstick with friends at the Thanksgiving food stalls and Re-enact the historic voyage of the Mayflower with the new Remote Controlled Mayflower. But what would Thanksgiving be without the dinner? Join your friends and family at the Big Thanksgiving Dinner Table and enjoy a 3 course meal. The table is situated just north of the lake.

There are also a number of Thanksgiving themed items for sale at the Pumpkin Patch. Turn into a Turkey with a very special Thanksgiving Animal Avatar. Try on the Pilgrim Costumes for men and women. Have some fun with the comical Riding Turkey locomotion. The Refined Thanksgiving Dining Table will let you host a Thanksgiving dinner of your own. VEEMEE would also like to introduce Acorn Meadows Park Day Passes. These passes can be purchased with Acorns and grant the owner 24 hours access to an activity. You can also get a Multi Pass which gives you access to most of the activities in the Park. Finally, if you use the Relocator in The Hub and get a special reward.

Lockwood Abbey Hill Cottage

It is a truth, universally acknowledged, that a Home user in possession of a PSN card, must be in want of a cottage. Fear not, gentle Home users, for Lockwood has a charming estate ideally suited to your rural sensibilities. Abbey Hill cottage unites the blessings of existence within its humble stone walls. Standing in beautiful gardens, numerous rewards are available, allowing you to furnish your new residence in the manner of a perfect country idyll.

If you are to be Lord or Lady of all you survey, then appropriate attire is a must. Regency clothing and hairstyles will ensure you are invited to every ball, piano recital and grand banquet. Cut a dash in a tailcoat and top hat, or dance the night away in an empire line dress with a ribbon sash and matching frilled gloves.

If you’re more accustomed to outdoor pursuits, an English Setter is the ideal dog to follow faithfully at your heels, or perhaps a gambolling lamb to add a sense of spring-like joy to the lush countryside surroundings.

Move into Abbey Hill Cottage and experience the warmest gratitude towards the persons who, by bringing you into PlayStation Home, united you with this fine accommodation.

Madmunki Spunland Update

Madmunki release the 6th Set of Spunland Commerce items. Do the Spun with the Spunims Dance pack (or the Sonic, or the S-P-U-N poses!). Express your mood with the fully animated Rabbit Head portable, ride around in high Spun style on the Spunland Jayraf LMO. Deck out your apartment with a new set of Spunland Character Cubes, or puzzle yourself spun with Spunland Picture 4, the new slidy-picture puzzle wall hanging. You can even about Hop around Home wearing rabbit ears and tail with the Spunland Rabbit Hop LMO – add a pair of fetching Spuntacles for extra Spun style!

VEEMEE Element and Street Style Updates

JAM Games Painted Bare

Why wear clothes made of boring old material, when you can be your own work of art and wear paint? These hand-painted masterpieces let you show off in style and be a little different from the crowd!

Bedazzle all those around you… Show your artistic flair, be Painted Bare!

nDreams Military

Conquer & Command with these new items from nDreams. Be the best operative you can be with this range of military outfits and rifle LMO items. All items are available in three different camouflage options so wherever your area of operation you will be well prepared. Each LMO is available in different stances and all have built in emotes as well for extra value.

Lockwood Update

Two very different Lockwood collections see an update this week, with Figment looking to the past to expand its clothing and furniture ranges, and Whimsy Hollow launching new colours of Whimsies and tails inspired by the seasons.

Figment has created a modular kitchen that would look at home in any of the Dream Universe personal spaces. From the gas hob to the cupboards and shelving, every section is designed to be positioned in a variety of places, allowing you to fully customise the perfect kitchen for you.

The clothing has a similar aesthetic to the kitchen – clean modern lines drawing on classic styles. The dress provides a flawless day to evening look, easily made more formal with the addition of gloves. The suit offers the same versatility, switching from business to casual with the removal of the fedora and trench coat.

The Whimsies of Whimsy Hollow are such friendly little creatures, they always have room in their homes and their hearts for more Whimsies and Whimsy-tailed friends. Can you show the same generosity of spirit?

If you’re looking for something even more magical than a Whimsy, you can’t go far wrong with a wizard outfit, available in two colours. More luxury gifts added to the Gift Machine too!

Atom Republic VIP Companions

Show off your social standing with Atom Republic’s VIP companions: a butler or a bodyguard at your side is the ultimate status symbol! Your loyal companions will always be at your side, to make you look like a real VIP.

ToyLogic Flower Accessories

VIP x7 Update

Once again, x7 adds new content this week. VEEMEE brings Dinodaur Animal Avatars and a Billabong Update. JAM Games adds more to the Painted Bare line. nDreams releases their Luxury Bed with room for 6 as well as Dance and Martial Arts poses and gestures! Lockwood adds to their Drey collection, and brings in new hairstyles and Motorcycle Club gear.

Are there any trophies to be had in the apps/games in Home? I might bite if I could earn trophies in there. Tried getting into Home the first year or so, and just couldn’t get into it. (Don’t attack me guys, I am asking an honest question)

If I were Sony, I’d stop wasting money on Home. It’s a service no one cares about, and gamers would be glad to see the money invested in Home going to games.

Hopefully on tomorrow’s Playstation conference on Spike’s livestream, we can see some new announcements

I will really look forward to PSHome for PS4

I’m not unconfident with the actual service, I think it’s great to socialize, making friends as I did, it’s a unique experience that I know many people enjoyed and others that still enjoy it like me, but I think it will be much appreciated by everyone to have the service also on PS4 maybe changed or not, you Paul and the team will know how to manage it but I really hope for Home on PS4

Let’s keep our fingers crossed and for now,

Great updated as always :)

Instead of reasons to come into Home and have fun, I see reasons to come into Home and BUY stuff … “It is a truth, universally acknowledged, that a Home user in possession of a PSN card, must be in want of a cottage” … laying it a bit thick there?

With the PS4 arriving Friday, and no word yet on PSHome’s future, it’s a strange way of trying to lure in users

Still nothing interesting this week. Is there going to be a event space to celebrate PS4 system? I really don’t know if PS Home be available for PS4 and I hope there’s a another firmware update for PS3 PS Home because there’s some issues like the bowling alley pool table acting glitchy and some errors we had. Good luck Sony!!!!! ;)

@3 None at all, although some games may unlock items in PS Home.

eah, we really deserve an answer as to if or if not Home will be coming to PS4. Us knowing makes a big difference on how much money we will/will not spend there in the immediate future. With the total silence on the matter, I’m guessing “not”. A simple “yes”,”no” or even “maybe so” would be nice.

I use Home Every day since early 2009, and that’s why i am here asking for more Furniture slots , 250 or 300 would be nice, due to all the ACTIVE Furniture Items we have 100 is no longer workable, 100 is the new 50 of 2009 .
Since many of us have PS PLUS , I want to see a color customization for our skin , our eyes, our POP OPS , I mean , who was the genius that gave us only 8 additional colors when it could of been COLOR Customization ?
How about let us fly HIGHER with our Locomotions, I have the Eagle locomotion and it is lame that you can only fly to an avatars shoulder height or Lower .

So now that PS4 has launched, I think its time to migrate Playstation Home to PS4. Playstation Home has been in beta since its release and with the power of the PS4, I think it can finally come out of beta! With all that RAM and processing power, it would look so much better and run so much smoother, more things can be on the screen at once, more players can be in a server, subtle environment effects can be placed, and so much more possibilities! PS4 is where Playstation Home can truly shine and bring out what Sony really intended for it.

PLease Sony bring PS Home to PS4. There is so much potential. Make it better. Bring things to new levels. Higher flying! Better graphics. Multiple inventories at once. Faster running. Please. Sony.

I am so amazed when people like LuiSpartanMIMIMI makes comments such as:

“If I were Sony, I’d stop wasting money on Home. It’s a service no one cares about, and gamers would be glad to see the money invested in Home going to games.”

I personally only go on Home maybe once or twice a month to check out what is new but there are always tons of people on it. So first LuiSpartanMIMIMI is wrong about that plus why do so0me people always think taking resources from something they do not care about automatically means those funds and resources will go to something that they do care about. You know what would happen if they shut down Home? Quite a few people who probably enjoy their jobs would lose them. The world does not revolve around LuiSpartanMIMIMI and people who think like him/her. If you do not like it do not use it but do not act like you represent “gamers”

LoL – “If I were Sony”! I wonder if he thinks Sony is a man or a woman? Maybe it is an androgynous super hero.
