PlayStation’s 15th Anniversary Comes to Home, Hudson Shows the Love + New Community Theater Partner

Firstly, to commemorate a very special moment in gaming history, we have a special video celebrating the 15-year anniversary of PlayStation up for you to enjoy in the Theater. It’s been a long time since we started, and I hope you’ll join us in celebrating our “birthday.” As a party favor, each person who checks out the video will get a commemorative ornament, nodding praise to the platform that started it all.

PlayStation virtual item in PlayStation Home (15-year anniversary)

Bomberman fans unite! Visit the new Hudson Gate game space when it is released in PlayStation Home this Thursday, September 9th. Explore the “discs” of this futuristic space and place your bets on the regular Dolphy races, unlock unique rewards, and even pick up Bomberman outfits. Purchase your own Dolphy Room Apartment, where you can raise your very own Dolphy to take part in races. Raise your Dolphy right and you’ll be rewarded as it streaks its way to victory!

Also this week, we have more MAG items including the RAVEN armor now available to further complete your collection. Lockwood’s sweet generosity is definitely not lacking this week either. This week, you’ll find the Lollipop collection of outfits or both male and female, a ton of new furniture and for the ladies, a luxury leather handbag delivering some serious bling in a diamond ring.

Finally, we have a new partnership in the Home Community Theater to announce — GamerIndepth!

GamerIndepth in PlayStation Home

As one of Home’s longest-running fan groups, it seemed only natural to further connect with them. I was able to get a burning question answered by several members of GamerIndepth.

GlassWalls: “I have a question for each of you. You’ve all been supporters of Home for a long time, and now we’re partnering up in the Community Theater. Where do you see the future for both of us heading?”

From Narde15: “Home is such a unique and cutting-edge application that I don’t know how to answer that question. What I can say is that as long as GamerIndepth is around it will keep its ear to the ground and continue to shine the spotlight on everyone making positive noise in PlayStation Home. That’s what we’ve always been about and with the support of the Home Team and the community, we’re not going to limit ourselves.”

From Hippe: “The future looks bright for ALL those that love Home. The future of both Home as an application and the community depends on the bonds we establish with each other. The Home of tomorrow will not be the Home of today. It continues to evolve daily and I hope GamerIndepth can be a part of that evolution every step of the way.”

From homeboy79: “The future of Home looks brighter everyday. The community’s involvement in Home is ultimately key to its success. This is where we come in. I’m confident that together we will continue to provide the highest quality of media and material that is for the community, by the community.”

From YowsahsItsMeesh: “Being an avid Home user soon after open beta was released it has truly been an experience to watch Home evolve into what it has become today….I can definitely see future partnerships such as ours, drawing in more gamers and non-gamers alike, and taking social gaming to an entirely new level.”

There you have it. Go check out their first video playing now in the Home Community Theater.

See you in Home!

Will PS Home always be “beta”? Also Bappy-H day!! and Home is sooo fun. I always thought of a thermometer that can control the environment around Users houses, or seasons? A little fun Idea.

Happy birthday Playstation!

I can still remember when I got my first Playstation. Sooo many “sick” days from school laying on the floor in front of the tv, playing Metal Gear Solid, Final Fantasy 7!

Soo many good memories and plenty more to come as Playstation has, and always will be my #1 console brand of choice.

Here is my virtual heart to you guys. <3

First off. Happy birthday :) Second, you made the right choice in partnering with GamerIndepth. They are some of the most dedicated and knowledgeable gamers I have ever met. Each of them have brought a unique personality and wit to their podcasts. Gamerknights and Replay with Doc included!

Goodluck :) and I will be around for the Home celebration!

September 8th, 7:52 pm

OMG this is awesome cant wait to have a PS1 in my personal spaces.

b-b-b-b-bad b-b-b-b-bad bad to the bone LOL

nice prize,how long will the ps1 be available?


September 8th, 9:03 pm

quote: With the recent client updates we reduced load times significantly and streamlined the whole experience.

Mine still takes up to 15 minutes to load fully… Also how about fixing the lag in Central Plaza.

The psone is a nice touch but you folks should give away each of the consoles thus far. That would really be a nice treat. Playable too…with minis on ur tv in Home…


September 8th, 9:03 pm

Happy B Day playstation. Me love you long time.

I wasted time looking for the anniversary video tonight. Sloppy job not to mention it won’t be available until tomorrow! And where will it be, the Community Theater? Sir, you are CLEAR AS MUD!

I wish the Virtual PS can be used virtually and be able to display content on a virtual TV so your friends can see what PS Game your playing off your HDD/Disc.

How about an Item for the Jewish New Year… (Example an apple and a jar of honey to display on a table). (Wish i could design something for home..)

I went to the Community Theater tonight to get the ornament & the only video’s that I saw were from PSNation, no anniversary video & no ornament/reward, same as with the A&E Lawman vest reward a few months back, when everyone was told to show up at a certain time/day for a “Special preview” of Steven Segal’s Lawman to receive the reward (the Vest in question).So, another Big-Time FAIL!!

How is it a fail when any moron with a right mind knows that home never ever updated on Wednesday. It’s always Thursday. So u fail

PS is 15 and I am …

I’ve got a PS1 PS2 PS3 and a PSP and for me, this means that I am a big kid but a bit older as well. I was speaking with a female when the question of age came up. Well, the reply I got when I told her my age was ” YIKES “. I am single but play Little Big Planet with my daughter along with a few other games.

My question to Sony is:
What can you do to accomodate an older age group into a somewhat younger dominated Virtual Land? It is quite likely that in 20 years, those 20 something’s running around in Playstation Home, will be asking that very question. I wish the PS3 was around in the 80’s but I’m making up for lost time in any event.

Final Thought’s: How about making some cool shirts with the year you were born in for those who have the virtual guts to do so.

So instead of putting actual full-legnth movies in the theater you decide to put up the podcast of a bunch of fangirls who have no lives. Where’s the mp3 players to play XMB music, where’s the TV’s, where’s MySoti, where’s Steampunk? I don’t give two flips about GI, they know less about gaming than a newborn baby. Just give us the features that we know should already be in Home, but for some odd reason aren’t.

Thanks for the fake PS1 to DISPLAY, it’s cool. BUT, what you NEED to do is make that PS1 ACCESSIBLE to actually PLAY PS1 GAMES!!

For years all we want is to access our PS3 Hard Drive, to be played in OUR Personal Home Space & Clubhouses.

3 main MUST HAVE issues STILL

1. The ability to PLAY the music we have stored on OUR hard drive!!
Were NOT selling it, it’s to be HEARD ONLY! Our HD cannot be accessed like Napster used to do. There is 0 copyright infrignement, it’s OUR PERSONAL SPACES! Then anyone can see or hear what we have stored.

This has yet to be done in any shape or form, and it’s one of the highest priorities for US!

2. The ability to PLAY games IN our Home spaces via, PS1, or a PS2.
Yes we can game launch certain games in Home,any Space and play their mini games, but letting us ACTUALLY access PS1, or PS2 games TO play IN HOME SPACE/CLUB HOUSE is a MUST HAVE FEATURE!

3. Also, the ability to PLAY any VIDEOS,etc, that we have STORED in our PS3’S H.D., that we can play,in our very OWN PERSONAL SPACES and/or Clubshouse!

Nice 2 get a REAL response TODAY. We’ve been asking for since Beta began, OVER 2 YEARS AGO!!

Wow… I miss having my PS1 and my PS2. I hope there are ornaments of PSone (slim), PS2 fat and slim and PS3s too soon. And just saying…BACKWARDS COMPATIBILITY.

Fixing the many bugs in home is long overdue. Stop with the minor and useless incremental updates. As it stands the report feature is unusable nearly all of this year and far back as last fall. Abstergo labs & gamer lounge are just two examples of how home has become an embarrassment.

More important is how home has become a well known stomping ground for both racists and perverts. Fixing this problem should be foremost on your teams efforts. But effort on this problem is non existant. Are you going to wait until some national news outlet picks up on that? or until one or more of the troublemakers commits a real crime?

Remember Home has been in beta for years now. It cannot go on that way forever. Sooner or later something must be done so you must ask yourselves this: would you rather see it fixed and go into full release or be scrapped? As it stands theres only one way it can go unless positive changes start NOW.
