Granzella Island Hideaway Comes to PlayStation Home + Weekly Update
10 Author Replies

Calling all members of the PlayStation Home Community!

Great news: This Thursday, September 22nd the eagerly-awaited Granzella “Southern Island Hideaway” game space will be released in PlayStation Home! This tropical locale includes a variety of free games – such as a jet ski racing game and the Ocean Floor Treasure Hunt. Of course, these games come with a wide range of rewards (additional Granzella clothing and furniture items will also be available for purchase), so all you reward hunters out there take note. We’ve snagged a trailer from Granzella to whet your appetite – check it out!

Heads up: Lockwood will be releasing their Showcase public space this week! Visit “Caramel” in the Central Plaza this week to receive a Lockwood Emote reward, available for a limited time only. Afterwards, head over to the Showcase Lobby and pick up five limited-time rewards!

Lockwood Showcase

The PlayStation Home Mall receives an update this week with new companions (including a robot sidekick and pet dragon), clothes (new Home hoodies), a ton of new hairstyles for the guys and the girls, and some seriously psychedelic furniture!

Head to the PlayStation Home Community Theater this Thursday to receive a special reward to help commemorate the end of Summer (we think it will pair nicely with your Granzella rewards) and watch as HomeCast Rewind looks at the recently- released Resistance 3 space (providing a few tips and tricks to help you get all the rewards) and the luxurious Tycoon Penthouse personal space. Next up, SOCAST serves up some “vintage” SOCOM action.

Community Reward: Animated Electric Palm Tree

See you in Home!

  • tonydamiani

    YAY!!!!!!!!!! CANT WAIT. QUESTION THE APARTMENT FROM GRANZELLA IS GONNA BE FOR SALE? :D

  • ATRamos1652

    Since FFVI and Chrono Trigger didn’t come out this week, I know where some of my PSN wallet money will be going. XD

    Looks terrific! Can’t wait to go visit Granzella.

  • GenomeGirl_33

    Finally, Ive been looking forward to Granzella ever since it was anounced. Hey Locust, Any word on the hub? Early fall? Late fall? Also looking forward to the lockwood showcase, Hopefully they can 1Up themselves. They keep setting the bar to dang high HaHa! XP

  • GenomeGirl_33

    Also.. Is that blue palm tree Active/Animated, Or just animated? Or a Light Possibly(hopefully).

  • wow lots of rewards with this update & with Lockwood…an emote reward? hows that work, we get a new R1 action added or is it a certain item we have to wear then we can use that emote…also can’t wait to see wat we get within the Granzella store

      It’s one of the emoticons that appear over your avatar’s head (it occupies the headphone slot).

  • You had me at Moonlight sonata.

  • Will NA HOME get the new Ndreams apartment? Ansadafone.

  • whyaskdouknow

    will we be getting the apt as well ?

  • nice update! Granzella is awesome, will we see the wedding chapel?

  • Any NEWS on STAR WARS sale in USA home like EU has where item’s are 60% OFF?

    @10. All time stops when I hear that sonata, especially when it’s played in classical guitar. It’s just that beautiful!

  • crazy_kracker1

    what ever happen to the trophie room for home that never took place

  • DLC in home is a joke.

  • Please tell me they’re not going to make you wear the castaway outfit forced on you in JP Home.

    Little too metro.

  • Seiryuki2002

    Granzella looks amazing! Nice work. Really beautiful stuff.

  • Just another way to keep me busy and having fun. Thank you Locust-Star, Home, Lockwood and Granzella.

  • Just a question did Granzella add Prizes to the JET Ski game as Japan there are no Prizes?

    Makes me wonder?

  • Granzella we know has two spaces so far in Japan and they release a HOME Apartments u buy also in Japan but we know it won’t be in USA Home for awhile…

    Most likely the Granzella space will be Version 1 and prize’s 1 batch! As Japan’s has second batch now!

    LOL!

  • quick question locust i purchased the cag mech suits and in the details about the home outfits it said the mech suits had special animations but i don’t see any was it a miss print or something?

    • Locust_Star
      Locust_Star

      Hi Mike,

      The Lockwood Mech suits have custom animations that can be triggered by avatar actions (such as dances and emotes). The CAS (Combat Armor System) costumes do not have custom animations, though they are mech-styled in their appearance, which might be causing some confusion.

  • GOOD FR THIS UPDATE WENT PSN GOING BE UP AGAIN

  • I like it

  • @crazy_kracker1:
    When will people understand that Home was shown off too early and that a trophy room just isn’t happening?

    On the other hand it would be nice if trophies translated into virtual items. Devs hardly do that.

  • tonydamiani

    lol Locust the question is about the Apartment not the Public Space :P The One Granzella Is selling on Japan Home. The giant Gazebo on the mountain dont ring any bells? >.>

    • Locust_Star

      Ah, I see. This space is not releasing this week. That said, more Granzella content is definitely coming to NA Home in the future, we just have no dates to share at this time.

  • Majin, you gather items for Home when you play alot of Full games, Red Dead Redemption fir example!

    For the other guy, PSN is already back.

  • So now that Granzella is coming into home, any word on IREM? I don’t recall hearing anything yet on when all IREM stuff will be leaving.

    Looking forward to the update!

  • footballrule

    Jets ski looks like fun. Are you able to just jet ski around with friends or do you have to do the race?

  • @ItsNymo Irem is leaving next week

  • Bluejays20012

    awesome home update i love it

  • Aww, no video to show the new hair… guess I’ll wait, lol. Nice update!

  • u have to RACE the Jetskis… And getting into the game is gonna be a pain as only four can play at a time…

    GOOD LUCK!

  • Yeah PSN is ok now(so is Xbox LIVE) Yep even the so-called perfect Xbox LIVE had problems today LoL

    Anyway the Granzella “Southern Island Hideaway” looks FUN. I will try that soon;)

  • @DCS-Tekken ah another Ward of Despair huh :P

  • toxicboy007

    eh i have a questoin is it true that were gonna get a free shopping bag????????

  • TheGuardianFID

    Um, we seriously need some swimming animations added to our Avatars, because there’s no way in hell I walk that fast under water lol, Locust get on it!!! >8( 8P 8)

  • never seen an Avatar like the one in all black before

  • The guardian, use the balloon outfit when you fly underwater you’ll be swimming lol

  • WastelandDan

    Another use for the snorkel??

    I read through didn’t see anything but the oxygen count down bar.

  • erickafollie

    Im hoping we get BOTH the Recycling Bin and something like the Gift Machine, in which we could send items we have but dont want to our friends, without them paying for it cause is already paid by us, sometimes i have befriend people that are New to Home but because they are broke or limited in their money, they cant get much of anything so it would be nice if i can send people some of the items i have but dont want that can be useful to them .
    I so love the new Jet ski game , im just hoping that i get to compete with other owners of the same personal space , we need more personal spaces with racing games in which you are able to compete with other owners of the same place, that would be sweet.

  • Are we getting Loot Office Furniture Bundle like EU had last week?

  • Sweet! Well, My Thursday evening is tied up ;)

  • Busca-Cabezas

    Woot! :P

  • wheres the NDREAMS Horror party pack

  • crazyman047

    looks cools cant wait for thursday update ,btw iam really happy with the hard work the home team has done in the past and home too me seems too be geting better and better with every update thanxs for all the hard work locust , glass and the rest of the home crew lots of love and thanxs for making home a fun place too be at my love

    p.s keep u the hard work and thanxs

  • @ 43 erickafollie

    i totally agree with you. i have something i never use that possible my friends who play on Home, or other people might have a much better time with using. why something like this has yet to be implemented yet is questionable. I really hope we see something like this in the future.

    Plus it would be cool to do contest and thus be able to give out prizes to people.

  • shadowdragon2007

    LS i have a problem with the tycoon penthouse, every time i board the helicopter to go to one place in my home mansion, the ps3 freezes up. Is there going to be a fix or is it just my ps3?
