Exclusive Halloween Event Comes to PlayStation Home + Saw, Bleach, Heavy Strike

Locust_Star's Avatar Posted by PlayStation Home Community Manager

On Thursday, October 21st, Lord Pumpkinhead (aka “the Demon Gourd from Hell”) will appear In the middle of PlayStation Home’s Central Plaza, his gigantic glowing face sneering like an intolerant king at his unworthy subjects, rotating so that all can bear witness to his glorious image.

As an offering to your pumpkin overlord, you and your friends must toss coins into his mouth as it rotates past. Make a proper offering, and the exalted one will reward you as one of his followers. Fail in your tithing efforts, and you will anger the ever-powerful Lord Pumpkinhead, hindering your chances of entering the Demon Gourd’s fold.

Legend has it that Lord Pumpkinhead has additional rewards for his most loyal subjects. Can you ascend to the ranks of his chosen few?

Speaking of Halloween festivities, this week our friends over at Heavy Water release their first pieces in the “Heavy Pets” line of items for your personal space. Celebrate Halloween properly by visiting the Furniture store (or the Central Plaza kiosk) in the PlayStation Home Mall, where you can purchase a ghostly tombstone, an eerie bell tower, or a flaming brazier. Place one in your personal space of choice and watch as a trio of Halloween creatures comes out to play – ghosts will rise from the tombstone, vampire bats will fly from the belfry, and flaming skulls will stream out of the brazier. These spooky new items are available for single purchase and are also offered together as a bundle at a special low price.

Also available this week from Heavy Water is the new Heavy Strike game. Place the Heavy Strike cannon in the personal space of your choice and then strap on your helmet, grab your walkie talkie, and order in an artillery strike. Simply place your sights over your intended target and tap X to fire away. You can even drop two cannons across from one another and exchange fire with a friend! Pick yours up from the Furniture store (or the Central Plaza kiosk) this Thursday.

“Want to play a game?” Join Konami this Halloween by sporting the infamous mascot Billy the Puppet’s costume from the horrifying hit film and game franchise Saw, available from the Costumes store in the PlayStation Home Mall. Konami also passes along the friendly reminder to make sure you check out the Castlevania: Lords of Shadow demo. After you’ve completed the demo, check your PlayStation Home wardrobe and you’ll find a special Castlevania: Lords of Shadow t-shirt!

The newest additions to our long line of Costumes are being released this week in the PlayStation Home Mall. Choose from a new Ninja costume (male), Midnight Rogue costume (female), or the Aqua Suit costume (female). Check out the picture below for a sneak peek at these brand new costumes.

PlayStation Home costumes: ninja, Midnight Rogue, Aqua Suit

Finally, Lockwood has updated the Sodium store with a literal ton of creepy contact lenses, perfect additions to your Halloween costumes. And our friends over at VIZ Media have given us a full episode of Bleach to put up in the Theater for a week starting this Thursday. Watch episode 168, where a new captain joins Squad Three, taking the place of the rebel Gin Ichimaru.

See you in Home!

For the Lords Of Shadow shirt; do you automatically get it added to your home wardrobe if you boot up the retail version of the game on Thursday or is it only if you finish the demo?

I don’t want to download the demo for the shirt when I already own the retail version of the game =P

    It’s pretty cool! One thing to note: This week we will release Saw items, but they are male-only. That said, next week we will release the female versions. So all the girls out there – just hold tight!

And are we ever getting a Haunted House Personal Space?

Gotta love the SCORPION nockoff costume… Now if we could only get some real Mortal Kombat outfits in Home when the new Mortal Kombat game comes out March 2011… That we Great! I also hope the game itself will include some Home Rewards…

But for now this Ninja knockoff will have to do for us SCORPION and MK fans…

I know you plan to bring some more contents in PS HOME for Costumes section, but what I am curious about is…

Let’s say that I missed two years ago that you offered one Halloween costume and it wasn’t there last year (I can’t remember what it was) that goes for Mrs. Santa Claus from two years ago was not there last year as well. What I really wanted to know is:

Can you PLEASE (TRULY PLEASE) bring those missable contents from last year and two years ago to Costumes Store? PLEASE I’d love to purchase what I MISSED(!). Hope to see more of great contents coming from you and your team!

Sycophant said:

October 20th, 2:58 pm

@16 Ah, thanks, just did that now =)

DCS-Tekken said:

October 20th, 3:10 pm

Well last year for Halloween 2009 we had a Male Vampiric Costume and a Female Vampiric costume. I have both. The female costume came with Vampiric Hands that had long Red Fingernails. I had them at the time i bought that costume. After Halloween they removed those costumes. And at the same time they removed the female Vampiric Hands from my Wardrobe… Darn it Home Give me back my Female Vampiric Hands…

Anyways here it is a year later i waited an entire year to see these costumes on home this year just to get back those Female Vampiric Hands… An Entire Year I’ve waited for these… But no they say those Vampire costumes won’t be returning this year… WTH….

AWW!

At least Home give me back my Female Vampiric Hands as least… U can do. For crying out loud…

But yeah all costumes should return for the season this is not right and fair to the ones who waited all this time for nothing.

Get with the program Home…

Darn Darn Darn Stomping as Herman Munster!

The pumpkin game sure looks like a lot of fun – and just in time, too!

It looks like Heavy Water put together some videos for their cannon and their Halloween pets…

Lookin’ good Locust! I just bought a PSN Card a few minutes ago, looks like i’ll be spending a bit on costumes this Halloween in Home. :)

KarateChampChad said:

October 20th, 4:05 pm

Great update :)

I’m probably a bit to catch you Locust but, that last bit about the few additional rewards for Lord Pumpkinhead’s most loyal subjects, will those come from being up a leaderboard of some sort, or from achieving a certain score in the minigame?

KarateChampChad said:

October 20th, 4:08 pm

A bit late*

footballrule said:

October 20th, 4:09 pm

Locust_Star, will the Halloween Central Plaza have a night sky?

FormerPSfan said:

October 20th, 4:38 pm

How bout instead of more useless overpriced virtual garbage we’re not using more than once we get some useful things on home such as:

-Abstergo labs getting fixed, its never worked
-Fix the report function which rarely if ever works
-enforcement of the rules on home as stated (ie. start banning the pedophile stalkers not those who report them)
-Update the paid items for both quality & pricing, as it is know we’re paying for gold but getting male bovine excrement.

October 20th, 4:43 pm

So, you’re putting my head in Central Plaza… Thanks guys.. xD LOL

Epiclees said:

October 20th, 4:54 pm

Can’t wait to toss a gaint coin into the rotating head like in the European crab toss which was histerical and also is it free??

Zombieman007 said:

October 20th, 5:01 pm

Regarding the Midnight Rogue costume, I am glad to see some bdsm items making it into Home. I figured Home was too family friendly for that type of thing. Hopefully this is the first of many such outfits / items. Looking forward to seeing all the ladies with their whips tomorrow.

ForgiveMyAim said:

October 20th, 5:17 pm

Cool i love saw, btw there should be a way to show display all your costumes in your personal home because i bought alot of cool stuff but i can’t wear it all at once :/

blakseed said:

October 20th, 5:31 pm

Nice update.

TheUndertaker85 said:

October 20th, 5:39 pm

Will it at least be dark in CP this year? Cause I remember last year along with other events where night time should’ve been in the scenario but wasn’t… Making these “events” extremely lame and really destroying the holiday spirit of many of those in Home.

mzladmae1 said:

October 20th, 5:51 pm

I dont think I will be entertain’d long with these new items. Would love to have seen more personal spaces. The cat suit will be in the wardrobe though.. I am ROOT’N For a Winter Wonder Land… something where if you have a coat items you wont look out of place. I have lots of hats I can’t wait to start wear’n.
