Pilots who have earned the rank of Airman or Captain will receive pilot jacket rewards upon reporting for duty on Thursday, December 16th. Earth Fleet is also proud to announce the new Mini-Mech companion (there’s no longer any need to walk alone!).

  • Joanna_Dark_

    Locust the EU is getting a female pack from Codeglue. Will North American women be getting that content as well at some point in the future?

  • Joanna_Dark_

    Locust can you please share the fate of the EA Complex with poker fans. It’s been 3 months now since the spaces were removed and I do believe we should at the least get an update as what we can expect.

    Please give us some information.

  • Woo, update to Novus Prime! Also more Christmas mini-games. Now if I could just find more time to play all this stuff.

  • Just UK for soccer or other countries too? Also Tester theater is only giving Big Fazeek male shirt.

    • Locust_Star
      Locust_Star

      Items for Australian and New Zealand teams are currently available as well.

  • @SCEA
    all I have to say is you guys better be making sure Namco brings this game to the US or I’m going to be even more pissed than I am about Tales of Vesperia still not having a US release:

  • Any info on the black cat that we saw from the Amaterasu Yacht video?

  • I love it that the scorpions in sodium are wearing neon party hats. :)

  • ForgiveMyAim

    I want trophies

  • Marvel vs Capcom is coming soon! Maybe this is a good time to put in for those Wolverine Claws from the EU……… Just sayin O_O

  • I went in around midnight, and downloaded the update. Home was down for maintenance, so I guess I’ll swing in again tonight!

    • Locust_Star
      Locust_Star

      Please do. Home was offline for a moment last night while we pushed 1.41 update live. Everything is up and running now though.

  • 1.41 is great, glad colors are back. Also glad we got the Burn Zombie Burn hat from PS+ but it’s not an exclusive item like blog says?

  • …also great Sodium update. The birthday hats are great! I might try to get some customer credits to level 3.

  • Are you going to release Hannukah items? And also, release an Israel soccer jersey!

    • Locust_Star
      Locust_Star

      Yes! In fact, some of the Codename items releasing this week are Hannukah-related.

  • PHIBALNATION

    You need to make our home avatar available in games. Like monopoly streets and family game night 3 had the avatars available in game for the 360, hence I bought both for the 360, would have loved to bought it for the PS3, but I like the involvement of your personalized avatars in the game. Hook it up Sony.

  • Not sure if you or Mass Media is aware of a problem I’ve been having at my Darla’s Den. After finishing the cannon game in the plaza, I tried the one in my Den. I had already beat the one in my Den, but it started me out on level 3. After clearing level 3, I got the level 3 prize from the Wet N Wild game at Midway 2. After I cleared level 5 of Wet N Wild at Midway 2, I tried the cannon again and it booted me out an said it was unavailable. Also, my friends can’t play the bell rigner game. I’m able to but they get placed in queue even when NO ONE is playing.

    • Locust_Star
      Locust_Star

      Yes, we are aware. Updates to the Midway space that will address these issues are coming shortly.

  • Screw the trophy room.

  • King0fHearts2007

    I still have a large number of items that are not showing up will this be fixed soon?

    We are still looking for The Hall of Fame, TV’s, radios/MP3

  • MAN-OF-PEACE

    wheres the original santa outfit Q_Q
    Dont get me wrong the new one looks cool but I wanted to dress up as santa but with evil wings and horns.
    The bling reaper looks ehh ok I prefer the floating cloak better.
    I am really happy that home has made it for 2 years of
    PURE EPIC-NESS just gets better.
    2010 is the evolution of home starting with sodium, pool tables and darts game, and Midway & Midway 2, poker table, and lest we forget the novus prime game. To me the most impressive thing about home is the outfits and cloths from star wars and the goth updates. Thumbs up go for HOME. keep up the good work!!!!
    I AM EXPECTING HOME TO BE EVEN MORE EPIC IN 2011!!!

  • XxadrammelechXx

  • YAY!!! Happy 2nd Anniversary PS Home and a year anniversary to Sodium one, I’m having a good time at PS Home keep it up. Now let’s PARTY WOOOOHOOO!!!

  • KoalaAteYoBaby

    I’m sick of hearing about the trophy room on forums and this blog. No one’s going to make it, so drop it.

  • @Locust_Star I’m having a little problem in the Storage for redecorating the personal space. When i put the itens i want in the Storage they come back as NEW when i turn off my PS3.
    Can you look into this? It’s really annoying…

  • Another patch so soon?! That’s amazing! And this one has some good fixes to boot! Keep ’em coming guys!

    P.S. How about creating a permenant global space? Please!

  • about the new ghostbusters stuff. What if we already have the ghostbusters apt do we get that stuff for free?

  • Attn: Locust
    Tester 2 T-Shirts are Broken it seems. We get one Male Shirt of Big Fazeek Only…

    The Female Version of Big Fazeek is not given at all.

    And the Male and female shirt of War Princess is not Given at all.

    There should be 4 shirts total at Tester 2 now. But we only are getting 1 of the 4 then.

    Is this going to be fixed today or tomarrow?

    Thanks.

      Hi DCS,

      We are looking into this now. Thanks for alerting us.

      Best,

      L_S

  • kewl update..alot ppl been asking bout new and old xmas items, just glad we be able to purchase them this week at the mall

  • that-acmilan-guy

    Ever since 1.4, there is some sort of sheen over the glass frames makes it difficult to see the pictures. I am using the black frame.

  • UltraRazpacho

    I still don’t see why I should bother with PS Home. I mean what is there to really do?

    BTW, I think PS Home should have trophies. Goto Central Plaza, get a bronze trophy. You could always add trophies when new stuff comes out that goes with those things. Like you add a new area and if you go there you get a trophy. Would be a nice thing to have and would be really cool. I can already think of hundreds of trophies.

  • Great, more updates to Sony’s bland, buggy dollhouse. Please end the home project, it’s embarrassing to those of us who are trying to support our purchase of a ps3 vs. a 360.

  • MetalGearCrysis

    Comments #1 and #8 are all that matter.

  • footballrule

    Finally, my 2nd year veteran shirt! Thanks Locust, been wearing my 1st year veteran shirt for a long time now. :p

  • Please could you let us know what is hapenning with regards to the Poker Rooms? We’ve been without them for quite a while now, and without any information as to if they are coming back or not. Please just let us know either way, thankyou :)

  • V_E_N_O_M666

    im having a hard time install the new update as soon as i click install my PS3 just shuts off & restarts on its on =/ help please

  • fuzzyclutter

    @32 dont like it ??? dont go there . as if the ps3 is designed specifically FOR YOUR WHIMS . get over yourself princess … the world doesnt revolve around you .

  • Any News on IREM Square getting an Update. We got the Space way back in Jan and yet the Shooting Gallery has not been Updated with the other item’s. So is IREM Square going to get updated?

    Thanks.

    By: DCS
    And of course it be nice if Spelunker got updated with the Cave area as well. AWW!

  • erickafollie

    Hello Locust, i would like to start by saying how awesome it is to see the chat log fixed, i like the fact that our online names are the colors that we have chosen, on that note i would like to get a TRASH BIN for clothes and Furniture, there are so many things i have i dont want, not even in storage, i just want to get rid of them completly.Please, give us a TRASH BIN along with storage.Another thing is what a member said before, everytime there is an update or something , furniture and clothes i have put in STORAGE comes back as new and to tell you the thuth i have over 1,100 pieces between clothes and furniture and its annoying to have to put stuff back in storage all over again .

  • Feral_Dragon

    Please DON`T have a trophy room, I think it`s the stupidest idea ever. You want to see trophies, you can see them in other ppl`s profiles. END OF. Stop pestering the Home team for this useless feature, and let them work on much more important features like this new patch.

    I`ve just read the Patch info, thank you so much! I was having loads of those problems and I`m glad they`re getting fixed, especially the merging costumes stuff. I was having trouble trying to change my outfit in my wardrobe because of that. I don`t merge, but a friend told me that the problems I was having were ones that those who DO merge get. So they`ve badly affected my Home and I`m so relieved that you guys have put a stop to it! Will this mean the constant crashing is fixed too?

    Any more animal costumes on the horizon? And btw, the female mummy costume from Codeglue is still broken, ppl only see us standing still when we do the Extra Mummy Dance. Now I`m scared that every female costume from them will be broken too, like the new ones tomorrow. Will it ever get fixed or do we have to start asking for our money back?

  • V_E_N_O_M666

    @ 40 hey lori o.O

  • erickafollie

    Something else that bugs me is the amount of NETWORK ERRORS we have been getting,also the fact that til this day us members cant even lay on the sand at SEASIDE or even hold hands, i mean give us that at least, Sony wants to be kids Friendly, i get that, but there are many members that are not kids,many that BUY all the stuff you put out,we also want more gestures, like body gestures, more realistic not STATUS ( sad,happy,angry etc.. ) so THANK YOU .

  • MoneyMaker110

    i’m liking the names in the chat window are back in color. easier keeping track of the conversation.

  • NotoriousGamer

    Home used to crash a lot with the last version update. Every time it did, all the items in my clothes section and furniture section get the “New Item” status. Fix this issue. Even with the new update the issue is not resolved.

    Please add a “delete” option for Home items you own. I made a lot of suggestions for Home here and on forums but I get constantly ignored. I even directly messaged the Home ppl in charge but again no response. So I quit Home for a while and just started Home again today. I hope you make Home better for ppl who dont buy items to make them feel Home is fun.

  • MAN-OF-PEACE

    @25
    I agree everything placed in the storage always gets spit back into new
    I dont know why but yeah it gets annoying

  • So when is EA sports complex coming back if ever? Since there’s no other reason to even use Home unless you like being nickel’d and dimed every week.

  • There is currently a SNOW WOMAN head in the store. Will there Be a SNOWMAN head?

  • Locust Star,

    One of the accounts on my PS3 only gave the female version of the Uncharted 3 announcement shirt and no make version. I will try posting in the support forum, but if you happen to see this can you have someone look into it. The other accounts on my system awarded both shirts without issue.

  • can we have an ETA on the features for HOME that we really requested now please?
