SingStar Rooms, Dizzee Rascal Event, Far Cry 2 Updates and Katamari Forever in Home

Locust_Star's Avatar Posted by PlayStation Home Community Manager

Aspiring rock stars can breathe a sigh of relief – SingStar is finally coming to PlayStation Home this Thursday, September 24. And to top it off, we’re kicking off the launch with an extra special event.

Those of you who visit the new SingStar space this Thursday will find that the critically-acclaimed UK rapper Dizzee Rascal has taken over the VIP lounge. To celebrate the release of his new album Tongue n’ Cheek (and his new SongPack available now at the SingStore), we’re decorating this super elite space with all things Dizzee Rascal, airing some exclusive Dizzee videos, and dropping a bunch of Dizzee-themed virtual items on you (including a few limited edition rewards for all attendees). See the below video if you want to learn more about the content and features in the new SingStar space.

Far Cry 2 fans will be excited to learn that the FC2 game space is being updated with a new mini-game entitled “Reuben’s Report”. This whodunit game will appeal to all of you sleuthy and snoopy types that love to hunt down arms dealers, thwart assassination attempts, and prevent all types of sabotage via explosive devices. Y’know, stuff you do on quiet Sunday afternoons to help pass the time…

Last but certainly not least, we’ll be releasing a handful of new items for your avatar, including Scuba Guy and Space Girl costumes, some Katamari Forever-themed virtual goods, and more.

See you in Home!

The vip space isn’t exclusive to us in the EU but the in-home concert by dizzee is still exclusive to us.

Will this update include full game launching support? That’s the only important thing really…

Sweet! So excited about this much new stuff all at once!

This is why so many people have a sour taste in their mouths towards the managers. Not a word about 1.3. Little rid bits of info here and there. Barely any open communication. When will it change? Is another staff division needed?

Look forward to the update.

Would love to see clothing items get a second layer for the torso. Like having a coat over a random shirt.

@ FlatulentGhost

I use to own a 360 but sold it for a ps3 this is the only console i own, but i was only giving my opinion about HOME that’s all.

September 23rd, 4:53 pm

there must be a ton of people with absolutely NO LIFE! if they are spending all this time in home. i barely find time to play the games i want to on my ps3. no time to wander around a pointless virtual space created to sell me [DELETED]!

OMG this is what pisses me off!!!!!!!! i mean i just hate this sh..! i hate how this people just try to make us think that by realesing this new space we are going to shut up and forget about 1.3!!! we are not stupid ! dont try to cover up 1.3 by launching this space! we want 1.3!! i hate when they think we are lil dummys that we dont realize about anything.

But then I suppose I shall just go back to our entire CONTINENT, because, you know, scones and tea are really popular in Spain, The Middle East and Australia.

Anyway, this looks really cool. Dizzee Rascal is brilliant. A new event that makes Home so much better than anything the 360 could ever do.

I have to agree with the general angst on this blog and in the forums. We were told 1.3 in September. Tomorrow is the last Thursday in September. Are you going to release it on another day of the week? Oh, sorry. I forgot I’m addressing someone who doesn’t respond to Home’s biggest supporters. SCEA, it’s time to clean house. We need a Home manager like Travis Williams of Idol Minds. He responds to everyone on the Pain blog. Oh no, now I’ve done. Time to get banned!

proskatercam said:

September 23rd, 9:12 pm

WOW! 1.3 coming in September. Yeah right! You idiots have no damn brain! Dont tell us 1.3 is coming in September and not do so. Frankly, Home got me banned PSN and forum bans…I dont even think its worth it anymore.

Come on HOME managers!!!!
make HOME more PS3 tigh in……universal game launching is a big step to this so tell us something about it.What happend?
Other big steps are HOME avatar-XMB avatar tigh in,game to home trophies,hall of fame HOME space.
If you dont do that HOME is just something diferent from PS network and that make users turn their back to it

Also allow users to upload their videos and music to their HOME spaces through virtual TV’s and music players and make posible the diferent HOME version (EU,US,JP) interaction and HOME becomes a success

It seems quite obvious that until people vote with their pocketbooks, Sony is going to keep doing this. I don’t mean to be a complainer Locust, but is 1.3 still coming in September or not? It can’t be that hard to answer that question. Is your boss not allowing you to say anything? If so, and it is coming in September there are only about 7 days left in September. Why would it need to be kept secret if it is indeed approaching that fast? That endlessly confuses me. :(

vistadreamer said:

September 23rd, 10:19 pm

Oh well, such is life. lol. It isn’t the end of the world, but it would be great to know the reasoning. Maybe once I have finished earning my Bachelors Degree in Game Development and get hired as a Game Developer I might find out why. Until then, the lack of information will probably remain as mysterious as Area 51. :(

Wow, Home is still around? Did someone just forget to cancel that project or are people actually using it?

steveometer said:

It would be awesome if we could actually take the stage in the Singstar space and have our performance voted on live.

Dear Home,

I have paid a lot of money and so have a lot of other people that use home, so as your bosses and inspiration that help fund this project we deserve why we can’t have the 1.3 update. Please give us an update on progress otherwise I am boycotting and not spending any more money on this destined-to-be-useless product until you can provide answers. Considering I was one of the closed beta testers I have been a supporter since October and it seems you have failed to meet up to any standards that your consumers expect of you. All we ask is to be heard and honesty of your product in exchange for how much patience and loyalty we have given you. As I fall into your early adult demographic and have enough sense to know when enough is enough I hope that other users will follow this stand and you will finally know how important we are to your job. This may sound like a threat but in this case I am only representing the people who enjoy home but are frustrated with how much you take advantage of our patience and money.
