Today, Lockwood’s Gift Machine has a Unicorn (squeee!), nDreams brings sexy Venice Beach even closer, Granzella has a bunch of goodies for us, and more. Check out all this and more this week in PlayStation Home.

Are you the King of the beach or the ultimate beach babe? If so then the new Venice Beach clothing range is perfect for you. With new muscular torsos for the guys and some gorgeous swimsuits for the ladies you will be the envy of everyone else on the beach. The ladies’ swimsuits go great with the High Heels locomotion.

A soft breeze stirs the long grasses. Sunlight dapples the dusty ground through the trees, their leaves red and gold. On the horizon, the rusted out hulk of an old steam train begs exploration and a snuffling sound in the grass outside the perimeter fence warrants further investigation. The only thing is, that fence is so far off. Walking there would take so long. If only… Oh, wait!
