Mos Eisley Cantina Comes to PlayStation Home + Exclusive Star Wars Events & Items!

Locust_Star's Avatar Posted by PlayStation Home Community Manager

This year marks the 30th anniversary of one of the most critically acclaimed installments of one of the most popular films of all time — Star Wars Episode V: The Empire Strikes Back. And this Thursday, August 5th, we kick off the celebration with the release of a slew of exclusive Star Wars and Empire Strikes Back content, available only in PlayStation Home.

Plucked straight from the iconic planet of Tatooine, the Cantina — situated in the spaceport town of Mos Eisley — is a rough-and-tumble intergalactic watering hole that welcomes only the toughest and bravest of souls (no Droids allowed!) From the Figrin D’an and the Modal Nodes house band to Wuher, the resident bartender, the Mos Eisley Cantina is an immersive environment that faithfully recreates one of the most memorable scenes from The Empire Strikes Back Star Wars Episode IV: A New Hope. Releasing alongside a score of items — including Chewbacca, C-3PO, and Leia Organa costumes — the Mos Eisley Cantina is available this Thursday via the PlayStation Home navigator.


While you are expanding your Star Wars experience by visiting the Mos Eisley Cantina in PlayStation Home and picking up the special Star Wars items (available from the LucasArts store in the PlayStation Home Mall), be sure to keep an eye on the posters throughout PlayStation Home’s Central Plaza during the next few weeks for portions of a secret voucher code. The first 10,000 users that assemble and redeem this voucher will receive a highly limited The Empire Strikes Back furniture item for their personal space. This item will only be available to those of you that participate in this ongoing scavenger hunt and will never be made for sale. So be sure to get in-world this Thursday to collect the first portion of this secret code and stay glued to this blog as well as the official PlayStation Facebook and Twitter accounts for more details surrounding future Empire Strikes Back events and content!

We wanted to take this opportunity to congratulate the winners of the ModNation Racers “Snap a Trick” contest, which we announced on this blog a few months back. We were inundated with entries, but have finally whittled it down to the top contestants. So, without further adieu, I ask that you join us in congratulating the following racers: ADRSKYLINE14, DTC_2010, FerrariThugs, kidd94, Mangus_Lorcan, ManiK, QCVic, silentkillerrei, and tbt924. Visit the ModNation Racers space in PlayStation Home this Thursday and check out pics of these guys and gals’ awesome kart tricks (here’s two of our favorite shots, just to whet your appetites)!


Finally, we wanted to draw your attention to a site ran by one of our hardcore PlayStation Home community members, Bandit731, who hosts a truly gorgeous gallery of photos taken in-world at the following site: http://photographyhome.tumblr.com/. Give the link a click when you get a moment and check it out for yourself — this user is very talented.

See you in Home!

Hey Locust, when is the Trophy Room coming???

GooniesAndy said:

August 4th, 9:21 am

I don’t think Mos Eisley cantina is from Empire Strikes Back… it’s where they meet Han Solo in the first movie.

SpeedRacer1955 said:

Yahoo finally we get some Star Wars items. Not for free like those uniforms from the new movie that came out recently in the EU who got them as a movie tie-in when it released.

I know they jacked with a bunch of stuff for the special editions, and specialer editions.. but Since when was this seen in Empire?

Are these spaces public or do we have to buy em? I hope its public because it seems they are all becoming paid for.

    This is a public space that is available for all to enjoy at no cost!

Conrad_Max said:

August 4th, 9:32 am

I always thought that the Cantina should be added to Home. I nice social watering hole for fans of the series and those who just like to hangout in bars.

spoonTRex said:

August 4th, 9:35 am

Ah, what a perfect way to celebrate a movie than by slumming it in a location from another movie. :)

Mgillila said:

August 4th, 9:36 am

Nice. Thats cool. I wonder if it’s a personal space, or a Home space. either would be awesome. I’d still like to see Matrix stuff for playstation home. A Neo costume, a Smith costume. A home space for the dance club where neo meets trinity. sweeeet…

Nintendo451 said:

August 4th, 9:37 am

I don’t know if this is really the right place to ask, but I guess it wouldn’t hurt. Will PlayStation be making any type of presence at Star Wars Celebration V next weekend? This seems too coincidental to me…or I just really love Star Wars and PlayStation :


August 4th, 9:41 am

I’ve got to say I can’t even read that second paragraph without fighting back a complaint. Empire Strikes Back? Really? Please Locust_Star tell me you know better

footballrule said:

August 4th, 9:44 am

You’re really early today Locust_Star!

So, will the new space have some freebies? You know how everyone loves free stuff. :p

AceSpade said:

August 4th, 9:45 am

I know it’s already been pointed out but, STAR WARS FAIL

footballrule said:

August 4th, 9:46 am

Locust_Star or GlassWalls, what will the item be for the first 10,000 to redeem the code for the scavenger hunt?

    It’s a taxidermied Tauntaun for your personal space ;)

Jetup said:

August 4th, 9:48 am

Ok, were going into a future people
Thursday, August 4th!
When the next time we are going to see that date?
I’ll check calender later

But will we see rewards or stuff to buy from the Star Wars space?

sassyGIRL311 said:

theman_714 said:

Hitman-Merc said:

do it do it now ill be on here waiting 6 more months till something happens right “add more military type modern spaces”

swrebel181 said:

August 4th, 10:07 am

Locust_star . . . I don’t need to say that you have probably invoked the righteous cry of Star Wars fans everywhere, the Mos Eisley Cantina is DEFINITELY from A New Hope, not Empire Strikes Back.

“We can pay you two thousand now, plus fifteen when we reach Alderaan”

Barring that mistake, I believe this may be one of the more used spaces on Home, given the amount of Star Wars fans, though if you were celebrating Empire Strikes Back Echo Base on Hoth or Cloud City might have been better.

worldwidewonder said:

August 4th, 10:09 am

What’s next? A faithful recreation of the Ewok Village from The Phantom Menace? The serene underwater kingdom of Otoh Gunga as seen in Return of the Jedi?

Somebody didn’t do their homework.

Perish_Song said:

August 4th, 10:10 am

lol, something told me not to bother with that contest. Months later, here are the results. I can’t blame you guys though, you were focused on the second week of the weekly home avatar contest at the time.

awsome_robot said:

August 4th, 10:16 am

so, will we ever be able to purchase a darth vader outfit? i don’t understand why star wars’ most iconic figure isn’t available for purchase in home and let the inner geek flow through you.

Great update again.thanks! congrats to : ADRSKYLINE14, DTC_2010, FerrariThugs, kidd94, Mangus_Lorcan, ManiK, QCVic, silentkillerrei, and tbt924

Cantina is from A New Hope, Not Empire.


CommaderKoopa said:

August 4th, 10:33 am

NO! ya know what NO you dont get it, those code vents are unfair and biased and what keep people off home, stop catering to the ‘nobody deserves this fake item but me’crowd!

lxatruch said:

August 4th, 10:45 am

Awesome!! i love when you made stuff like this! !!!!

BTW wrong movie and wrong day, you mean from A new hope and Thursday the 5th! :P

Just link HOME avatars with PSN someway.
Add an extra option in users card showing HOME avatar or something like that

August 4th, 10:48 am

AstralCannibal21 said:

August 4th, 10:59 am

Just one very important question….are we going to have the Cantina Band and the song playing? Have Han-Solo and Chewy sitting in the booth, Luke and Obi-Wan at the counter. This is going to be my favorite Home space! THANK YOU!

jimmyfoxhound said:

August 4th, 11:04 am

Did he just say the Mos Eisley Cantina was in The Empire Strikes Back?? No, this is too obvious.. he’s trying to lure out all the true star wars nerds who will call him on this. Then he will point and laugh at us! yes. I can feel it. IT’S A TRAP!!!

megamixer said:

August 4th, 11:06 am

I’ll never understand why so much effort is put into appeasing Star Wars fans. It’s truly a viral menace which has infected several tv shows making them waste entire episodes to devote themselves to it, numerous mentions in moves and books, and it’s even infected gaming (Soul Calibur IV, ugh)… Besides, 20 years? The average age of Homelings is far below that. Did their parents force them to watch and “like” these movies?

On another note… fix the Gamers Lounge! It’s always empty because just being there crashes your PS3! :|

I rarely use home, but if the prize is a Frozen Han Solo in Carbonite I WANT IT.

Sophronia said:

August 4th, 11:10 am

Star Wars fan or not, I think this update is gonna rock! Who wouldn’t want to run around Home in a Chewbacca, C-3PO, or Leia Organa costume!


phinnv8 said:

August 4th, 11:13 am

Mos Eisley wasn’t even in Empire so that’s a typical epic fail on PS Home’s part. Shoulda been a cantina on Vespin over looking some huge orange/red cloud scenery.

Good news about the Modnation Racers patch, time to give that game another shot… Hopefully its good now and they fixed that horrible 3 minute load just to get into the game (what the hell game has a load just to get to the main menu).

August 4th, 11:38 am

Hey Home guys, can I have a Cybertron Apartment from Transformers? Pretty please? The windows can look into a Cybertronian landscape. Come on, at least consider it. Tie it into War for Cybertron’s game or something, heheh

The futuristic locations in playstation HOME are truly beyond words.. SCI-FI style locations are the greatest things about HOME… And now with a Star Wars public location, HOME is on its way to the next level.. next generation.. THE FAZEONES LOUNGE..

Spideywebs said:

August 4th, 11:42 am

The only Star Wars item I want is Boba Fett. And…..where is the God of War stuff?

Jetup said:

August 4th, 11:50 am

Now it says “Thursday, August 4 5th”
Em I not seeing something?

redknight355 said:

August 4th, 11:57 am
