This Week in PlayStation Home: Heavy Ink, Time Crisis, Medal of Honor, Loco Roco & More!

Locust_Star's Avatar Posted by PlayStation Home Community Manager

This Thursday, October 12th brings a wide variety of content into the ever-evolving world of PlayStation Home – from unlockable rewards from top PS3 games to stylish body art for your avatar to spooky Halloween items to help you get in the spirit of the season.

Our friends over at Heavy Water kick things off this week with their Heavy Ink line of body art. Choose from full-body, back and arm tattoos – including animated and glow-in-the-dark designs. Check out this video for a sneak peek at some of the wild tattoos releasing this Thursday in PlayStation Home.

The Heavy Ink line will be expanded in the future. The developers over at Heavy Water encourage you to reach out to them with any comments or suggestions: And if you have a specific tattoo design that you’d like to request, go ahead and give ‘em a shout at:

Lockwood brings even more Halloween content into PlayStation Home with the new Cauldron of the Sunless Kingdom. Toss ingredients into the boiling pot and, if you manage to get the right mix, you’ll unlock some uber-exclusive rewards.

The newest additions to our line of Superhero costumes will be available this week from the Exclusives store. Check out this video for a sneak peek at these hot new costumes – including my personal favorite: the Fire Elemental.

Come this Thursday, you’ll be able to purchase a special Medal of Honor Tier 1 outfit from the Costumes store and celebrate this critically-acclaimed title properly. And if you pick up Namco Bandai’s Time Crisis: Razing Storm, you’ll be able to unlock special rewards in PlayStation Home. Here’s how:

  • Boot up Deadstorm Pirates from the Title Selection Screen and receive a DeadStorm Pirates t-shirt.
  • Boot up Time Crisis: Razing Storm from the Title Selection Screen and receive a Razing Storm shirt.
  • Boot up Time Crisis 4 from the Title Selection Screen and receive a Time Crisis 4 shirt.

Scion’s “Take on the Machine” activity returns to the Central Plaza this week. Log in to PlayStation Home this Thursday to join the challenge and unlock special rewards. Then head to for additional information on the all new Scion tC and to find a dealer near you.

Finally, be sure to head to the Threads and Furniture stores to pick up the new LocoRoco clothing and furniture items – from Doonga Doonga hats to Loco Sofas for your personal space.

See you in Home!

Looks like an okay update, the MoH outfit piques my interest. Any news on the Heavy Rain gold ornament?

Wow…looks bland as usual. Yet another week of not bothering to get back on Home…

SpyDudeFX said:

October 13th, 12:31 pm

Looks like a good update, are the tC rewards the same or new ones from the week before?

    The Scion event remains unchanged – we are simply making it available for all of those people that may have missed out during the first week.

Rene_Led said:

October 13th, 12:32 pm

Hey tat Lava Golem gear looks cool! looks like War’s Chaos form! lol
Is the Scion game going to have new stuff or the same as the rewards 2 weeks ago?

SpyDudeFX said:

October 13th, 12:35 pm

Locust glad to see a detailed list of rewards and how to earn, please continue this for future updates. Thx.

    Sometimes developers wish to keep these details secret (they treat the unlockables like Easter Eggs). But in the event that we are given permission to include instructions with our announcements, I can assure you that we will!

Sony should stop funding Home and instead use the money to get their exclusive games to actually come out on time.

StephieRawks said:

3 questions:
1) Is last year’s Vampiress halloween costume making a comeback this year?
2) Are the Scion rewards new or the same as last week?
3) Will the Heavy Rain gold ornament be up this week?

    Hi StephieRawks,

    Please see the above comments for the answers to your questions regarding the Scion event and the Heavy Rain gold ornament.

    The Vampiress costume will not be making a comeback this year.

I was a big supporter of Home but key word “was”…where are the features?

Joanna_Dark_ said:

October 13th, 12:45 pm

I would also love to get some information as to the timing of the return of the EA Complex and Club Fight Night.

I would also like to know Locust if there are any plans to bring the Capcom Skylounge to North America. That is an awesome space and I’m sure users here would love it.

Please share! :)

No IREM, Demon’s Souls, or JP Home standard events = NO CARE!

will the cauldron disappear within a month from the Home Mall?

which items are most likely only available in the PS Home during the holidays

    Locust_Star's Avatar

    Locust_Star said:

    October 13th, 1:34 pm

    I’ve not heard from Lockwood yet regarding how long they will keep the Cauldron available, but I would urge you to pick it up soon if you plan on adding it to your collection. As a general rule, items tied to holidays and holiday events are only available in the time period surrounding that holiday (that said, we let the publishers decide how long they wish to make their content available).

@ Joanna, I would also like to see the Fight Night space come back. that was a big hang out spot 4 me & I REALLY miss the DJ game =(

I must agree with Buzz those tats look freakin EPIC!!! lol

VincentVendetta said:

October 13th, 1:18 pm

You know what would be epic with Time Crisis: Razing Storm? Your own arcade cabinet in your personal space. Actually, you should do it for any Arcade-based game released on PSN. Your own NBA Jam cabinet would also be full on win, if not more!

King4Ransom said:

S-E-G said:

October 13th, 2:43 pm

you never see news about community events for home anymore
now it’s all about what you can buy and when.
what are you guys doing with all that money you make from home?

    Hey there,

    Actually, there is a community event scheduled for every night of the week. You can check out the calendar on our site (or just go to the Gamer’s Lounge on any day to see what the Featured Game of the day is):

    Furthermore, the Scion challenge is technically and event. And it is free! And there’s plenty more fun, free experiences coming soon. Stay tuned to this blog for announcements.

I know I’ll never get a reply but oh well…

I loving how every week you HOME Staff keep giving HOME buyer these horrible virtual items.

How about giving us Open Public chat back.. If someone is annoying I mean that’s what the MUTE button is for. I thought the PS3 was all about (buttons)KB!!

How about you guys just scrap PS HOME as we know it and make it a big A@@ MMO or something.

BraidedWALLACE said:

October 13th, 2:50 pm


They don’t care, they want your money on these useless items..

I mean have movie night every Thursday or something.. have a voting room where we can vote on movies from the PS Store. i don’t mean the newest movies but you get the point. I can go on and on.

King4Ransom said:

October 13th, 2:56 pm

yeah so many options Playstation has to improve the whole Home experience yet the only thing they really add is more items to buy. smh.

footballrule said:

October 13th, 2:59 pm

Loving the Halloween themed clothing for our Home avatars! Do you guys have any Halloween planned events for us this year? Last year, I won Burn Zombie Burn for an event we did last Halloween. :)

When is the Xi Alumni hub going to return?

BraidedWALLACE said:

October 13th, 3:04 pm


Thank You for seeing what I see… These mindless drones only care for virtual items ..what can HOME users gain by buying them nothing. You sure can run any faster, Load any faster, etc…

io-knight said:

October 13th, 7:21 pm

Is it just me, or do a lot of the superhero costumes look like they came directly out of City of Heroes (PC MMO)?
