Home 1.75 Platform Update Today

Today, the Home 1.75 update will arrive, bringing with it several new features including several for PlayStation Plus members. Also new is the fact that all current save data for your account will be uploaded to the server cloud, so your experience will be smoother, faster and more streamlined. For full details, check the patch notes posted here.

As usual, if you are updating from an old version of Home (1.40 or earlier), please wait for the orange “hard drive activity” light to stop flashing on your PS3 before commencing the patching process.

Lockwood – Dream Hideaway, Iron Fusion Wraiths + Screen Sirens

Dream Hideaway

The latest addition to the Gift Machine is something special. The Dream Hideaway incorporates all the high quality fixtures and fittings you’ve come to expect from a Dream apartment, but in a rather different setting. Sequestered in a tranquil, twilit forest, the Hideaway’s sleek interior and peaceful exterior provides your friends the perfect location for rest and relaxation.

14 hidden rewards provides them with everything they need to furnish this halcyon bolthole, from an avante-garde egg chair to a futuristic fridge.

Iron Fusion Wraiths

Request assistance from all IFL Mech Units for deciphering radio recordings previously dismissed as static, now believed to be extraterrestrial declarations of aggression. High Alert Status granted. Move to Severe Alert Status pending. Wraiths have been unleashed in PlayStation Home!

The Screen Siren

She’s got the va-va-voom curves and is just as happy draped across a piano singing her heart out as she is basking in the light of paparazzi camera flashes. Now you can steal her style with the Screen Siren dress and hairstyle from Lockwood.

The daring cut of the dress and tantalising sweep of the hair are not for shy wallflowers. Be ready to be the centre of attention.

nDreams – Jetpack + MiniMotors Locomotions

Everyone wants a jetpack to fly around wherever they want, right? nDreams are bringing you two styles of jetpack in their Bladestream Corp Range. The A3000’s have a futuristic design with extendable arms where the J3000’s are a little more old school and use propellers to get you off the ground before kicking in with the flame powered speed boost.


Also nDreams is bringing it’s take on MiniMotors this week. Hop on and ride around Home and even pull off the special Donut emote to run rings around others.

February 13th, 7:27 am

Is there someone I could E-Mail about a question I have regarding playstation home?

It has to do with a very important issue involving the community directly, however I feel it would be more appropriately addressed privately.

Any response that points me in the right direction is very much appreciated.

Thank you.

Why no mention of the 1.75 or the fact that home is down for maintenance right now?

    Cade Peterson's Avatar

    Cade Peterson said:

    February 13th, 9:47 am

    The Home 1.75 platform update and the weekly content update together takes longer than the usual. We expect Home to be fully online again today very shortly.

carfreak13 said:

February 13th, 7:33 am

I got a message about Home updating to v. 1.75. The description was in English but the pictures were in some other language. Now that i see this update, I’m guessing we’re not getting it? Cause I literally got extremely excited to play Home later on. All of the great features that were listed. Can you follow up on that at all, Cade?

    Cade Peterson's Avatar

    Cade Peterson said:

    February 13th, 9:48 am

    No worries—Home 1.75 is going to arrive today and I expect everything to be online and ready for your enjoyment soon.

Hitmanwwe said:

February 13th, 7:36 am

Love the update But did not see anything about the Home Update 1.75? Still in the works or is it going to be an surprise update. Also Will we be getting any Cars to drive around in? I would love to be able to drive around in a car, i liked the motorcycle but a car would be epic :). One more question/ suggestion, i know we have gold fish but can we have a Cat/ Dog we have to care for as well :D Now that Will win me over in a second hahaha. Thanks And Great. Awesome, Spectacular Update!!!!!!!!!

MistyRainne said:

February 13th, 7:41 am

The heteronormativity is strong in the VIS video showing the boyfriend/girlfriend companions. :P Though I don’t think companions are gender-linked anyway. They better not be!

Also, the one night I’m actually fired up to come Home again rather than play Skyrim, and it goes down an hour early (effectively) and stays down for maintenance seemingly longer than usual. ¬_¬ Any word on when it’ll be available?

The_Dukenator said:

February 13th, 7:58 am

@5 That’s why its down.

The 1.75 update was announced weeks ago, originally was to come out Jan 30,2013. But was delayed due to issues and it should be out today (Feb 13, 2013)

Syrlis said:

February 13th, 8:15 am

@9 yes I am very aware of these things, this is not what I was asking nor was I asking you.

I’m asking Cade why, in this blog post, was there no mention of 1.75 update coming out today. Is it because there is going to be a seperate blog post in regards to the update? Are they just assuming people will check the forums for more info on the 1.75 update as it becomes available?

Why get everyone interested in todays content update, but fail to mention home is down for maintenance right now? Just weird to post this now instead of after home is back up.

subzer007 said:

February 13th, 8:30 am

as always I look forward to the updates on home I was laughing so hard at the fact for valentines day home now has A.I. boyfriend/girlfriends now


February 13th, 8:45 am

How do you legally get away with ripping off other peoples intellectual property, the pulp fiction dances, Jessica Rabbit up there and a lot of other items in home, like the unicycle that was developed by a fellow Canadian? Do you pay any royalties for stealing peoples hard work or do you just do that, steal it, without thought? Really some of the things you guys do are just down right ILLEGAL.


February 13th, 8:46 am

1.75 is delayed as well and as usual, no mention of it.

subzer007 said:

February 13th, 8:48 am

btw how much for atomic republic companions ? cool I’ve already dl the 1.75 update just waiting for home re open

    Cade Peterson said:

    February 13th, 9:50 am

    Each of the new companions will be $2.49.

MistyRainne said:

February 13th, 8:57 am

Will Home be back online before Valentine’s Day has ended? So far, there has been no evidence nor word to suggest that it will be. Even a “no” is better than utter silence.

At least before this, we still had 1.7 available.

    Cade Peterson's Avatar

    Cade Peterson said:

    February 13th, 9:51 am

    Yes! Most definitely it will.


February 13th, 9:12 am

LMAO hi here’s an update for Home but guess what, YOU can’t log in…FAIL

Barto900Z said:

February 13th, 9:38 am

ok here is a song recomendation for the flash mob. have you heard ‘Marvin and Chardonnay’? that’s from Big Sean & Kanye West.

Conrad_Max said:

February 13th, 9:42 am

the 1,75 can be downloaded right now. If you want to learn about it, go to and read up.

Today’s update has been previously described as being very big. Thus it’s taking longer than usual.

crumdd said:

February 13th, 9:48 am

    Hmmmm, I think he has a couple times, but he’s obviously partial to his Diamond Suit. He loves bling like no one else.

MistyRainne said:

February 13th, 10:49 am

It’s up now! And looks like no more typing lockdown after accessing the Wardrobe. For that alone, this is a big win!

Largely counterbalanced by the “neener neener, you don’t have PS Plus” crap, though. Such things only breed resentment. I don’t spend money on such things, where I might have otherwise.

Night_Ieopard said:

February 13th, 11:34 am

Wow Cade, did you really just call the new Lockwood Dream Hideaway a “halcyon bolthole”? You should watch your language – we are censored on Home for saying such things. LOL. On a more serious note, I wish your crew and all the users of Home much success with the new 1.75 update.

    Cade Peterson's Avatar

    Cade Peterson said:

    February 13th, 12:19 pm

    LOL! “Halcyon bolthole” might sound naughty, I suppose, but it really means a peaceful and idyllic place to retreat—a personal sanctuary, of sorts.

    Thanks! So far, the launch seems to be going smoothly and people are enjoying it quite a bit. I hope you will join in the fun when you get a chance.

erickafollie said:

February 13th, 11:45 am

Great, im trying to look at all the new items using Navigator and it says Download Failed and it just gave me an M10 error code , after trying 3 times to get into Home , its not working .

FeddeCampo said:

February 13th, 11:48 am

Awesome update even for Plus members, I love all the stuff coming out these days.
I just wondering if u can answer me a question Cade.
Will PSHome still being avaliable in the future on next-gen?

CommandingTiger said:

February 13th, 1:04 pm

I’ve had that same issue, so I used my fat ps3.
Still having some problems? Cuz I’m in on my fat, hehe.
Having tremendous difficulty doing anything with the 60Gb fat, lack of RAM maybe?
The PS4 Needs at least 2Gb of Ram just for the online portion of it and needs 8Gb minimum DDR3/DDR4, whatever is compatible.

Would also suggest going for Intel core processor since they last longer and often offer more stability.
Graphics are less generic too.

quick question to Glasswall what happen to the valentine day quest that was suppose to be on the activiy broad today

The_Dukenator said:

February 13th, 2:29 pm

@35 No idea. might have something.

@34 Infamous 2 doesn’t come with dlc as I recall and I did download it over Plus awhile back.

@33 Maybe. What is your PS Home cache set to? 3GB is the default, while 12GB is the max.

@32 Maybe. It might be cross compatible with ps4 & ps3.

jada42 said:

February 13th, 3:19 pm

wheres the valentines day quest its not in any of the activity boards

skin2121 said:

February 13th, 4:19 pm

Very awesome thanks Sony!

So, now that my system saves are obsolete I assume they can be deleted, but how does that affect the cache size option now? Does it make a difference whether its 3 gig or 12 gig? Is there a post somewhere that discusses this? I read the patch release notes discussing the features but it didn’t have any info that would answer my question. Also thanks for the new plus perks they rock.


chabala said:

February 13th, 7:29 pm

Lucky fountain is glitchy for me. I got the pop-up that I won the reward, but not the new item notification, and the bra doesn’t show as awarded in the info booth.

Any advice? Should I trash my cache or something?

As some people said already, Wardrobe is all messed up, I went to change clothes and to my surprise everything i had put in Storage, was back into my regular wardrobe items, i fixed it, logged off , went back in , and Again, everything i had put in Storage was back in my regular wardrobe .
Also, when you go and purchase something , it takes Forever and im not exaggerating, takes a really long time to get out of the store mode, when i go check on my purchases takes another Forever to load , when i go check on my rewards or inventory , takes even longer .
Now i have the download symbol going on and on , 2 hours already and it hasnt stop spinning, what can it possibly be downloading ? for 2 plus hours ?
I do understand is the first week and as such , the update has some bugs but Please, Fix this as soon as Pissible .
