Comedy Moves

If you like having fun and don’t take yourself too seriously, this week Atom Republic brings you Comedy Moves avatar animations and two hilarious locomotions! With the Comedy Moves, you can be sure to raise a few smiles: do the chicken dance, the conga line, the mime behind a glass wall, and last but not least, the famous Harlem Shake!

Finally the Silly Walk is probably the most ridiculous locomotion you can buy in Home… You have been warned!

Rock, Paper, Scissors

Play Rock, Paper, Scissors with your friends anywhere in Home, with this new avatar animation pack!


Granzella – Casual Cardigans

Enjoy the spring dressed in a cardigan set! For women this 3-piece set includes the Bowler Hat, Long Cardigan Outfit, and Open Toe Pumps and is available in 3 colors.

Konami – Vehicle Locomotions + Raver Update

Konami adds to their raver line with a huge update! In addition to clothes, Konami releases all new vehicles! Intimidate with your very own mini-tank or fly around in your glowing space fighter. There are multiple colors of each, so collect them all!




Lockwood – Motorbikes

You look like the kind of person who loves power! Lockwood’s LMO Motorbikes pack that power. Their horsepower is so powerful, it hoofs horses out of the way to make room for unicorns. That’s right, Lockwood’s Motorbike engines run on unicorn power. You want to see the unicorns? Well, you can’t! They’re tiny and they live in the engine and make the bike vroom! You’ll just have to be content with vrooming.


What’s that? You love power, but not as much as you love gifts? Well that’s good too, because Lockwood’s LMO Motorbikes also come in gift flavor! Okay so it isn’t a flavor, it’s just an alternative but equally convenient way to get hold of an awesome motorbike. Stop licking the gift machine already! You’ll just get a sore tongue.


Also, the ever popular Baron’s Eggcellent Plan active item gets re-released for a limited time. Pick yours up and enjoy all the shenanigans that Easter was meant to be.

x7 Update

This week in exclusive VIP nightclub x7, there is a new exclusive value bundle, a new freebie, plus new “Flaming Hair” items from Lockwood, and new hairstyles from Konami! Head to x7, take the elevator upstairs, check out these fine items, then dance the night away!

Mall Update – The Virtual Item Showcase, Volume 80

Magnus is back again, sharing with us all the hottest new items this week. Check out the video below for all the details. Highlights include Easter Egg Heads, Egg-inspired companions made in-house by two of our talented Home QA guys (props to Sean and David!), funny new walking styles, positively glowing new Raver clothing items and Flaming Hair and Eyes in x7.

See you in Home!

Will we see that new Killer plants from outer space game coming out next week? Or is next week mainly based on the new Pottermore content that will be coming next week?

“Flames not included” Why not? Would have been sweet, oh well.

Has there been an update to Sodium 2 racers lately? I haven’t been on Home in ages…

If you visit The Complex Modular Apartment after getting it from Aurora, you might get 2000XP for Aurora first time visiting it.

The TARDIS is very big and you can easily get lost in it.

Sony please fix the 2013 MLB.TV PS3 App. I’ve un installed and re installed the MLB.TV PS3 App at least 20 times on the PS3 Slim and did the 4.0 update also did a power cycle and still the same thing Black Screen and the PS3 Freezes. MLB please fix the MLB.TV PS3 App. Thank You.

why would i invest into any more online purchases when the playstation 4 is coming and we don’t get to take any of our purchases with us. its a waste of money to buy online items if you are soon only planing to stop suporting the PS3 for the PS4. How long after the release of the PS4 are you planing to keep the PS3 servers going? the answer to this is what make me not want to buy anything that is online related only.

@Bcrichmark … why would you believe items don’t port over when Home data is saved in the cloud linked to your account and not on your machine?

I can’t imagine that Home will end with the PS3 so presuming that Home is on the PS4 at all, I’m quite certain everything you buy now will still be there when you log in with the new console.

Bcrichmark said:

@maluraq and SONY why would i not believe that? sony already announced that the PS4 is not backwards compatible to any older formats. also that your older purchases from PS3 store will not be able to carryover to the PS4 and your trophy’s don’t even carry over. So until SONY who could respond to this post easily tells me that my investment in online purchases will be usable for more than a year or two i don’t plan on buying anything that requires me to be online to use. when the PS3 servers shutdown all your online content is useless. So how is it Sony do we get to carryover our Home purchases to our Home on PS4 ?????

So, I’m thrilled there’s a TARDIS space in Playstation home. It’s wonderful, it’s fun, it’s almost perfect – except for the sexism.

Why can’t a female character hold the sonic screwdriver? River Song actually uses it in two episodes – the Doctor actually gives it to her, so it’s not like it’s a male-only device.

A bit disappointed.
