PlayStation Home update: v.1.75 is here, with love.

 

PS Home will briefly be offline from 8.00 a.m. GMT on Wednesday 13th February for routine maintenance. Here’s what to expect after the update…

 

First up, this week sees the arrival of the 1.75 Home client update. Check out details of the patch notes here. We’ve also made some changes to the layout of the Home Navigator, so it’s easier to find the best content and you can directly access stores.

 

Valentine Event

Love is in the air, and a romantic stir has taken over Pier Park. Everything from the full moon to love-themed mini-games help set the mood, including a kissing booth to open only on Valentine’s Day, February the 14th.

The Casino

You’ll be breaking hearts with the new Lucky Fountain reward. The Hearts Bra will be available just in time for Valentines. Head to The Casino, toss a chip or two into the fountain, and get this reward for this special day!

Digital Leisure have doubled the limit in Craps, so now you can bet 400 chips at once! The stakes are now higher for those who want to feel the rush of rolling the dice.

The Desire Collection from JAM Games Ltd

 

If you haven't yet checked it out, take a look at the Desire collection from JAM Games. Here’s what they have to say about it:

 

“In perfect time for Valentine’s Day we bring you our Desire Collection.  Turning up the heat on romance, we have created a range of outfits for him and for her that will definitely ignite your virtual flames of desire. 

 

 

Whatever your romantic mood we have the outfit to suit.  If you want to soar on the heavenly clouds of love, choose our angelic ensemble in pink and white or do you want to show your more devilish passion for another in our little red devil number? 

 

Desire_promo_684x384.jpg

 

For the guys we have pure enigmatic style!  Burn with desire in red and black or show your romantic side in white and pink, in either you’ll certainly have angels and devils falling at your feet.

Lockwood

Extra-terrestrial declarations of aggression detected. High Alert Status granted. Move to Severe Alert Status pending. Wraiths have been unleashed in PlayStation Home!

The latest addition to the Gift Machine is something a bit 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.

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. Steal her style with the Screen Siren dress and hairstyle. Be ready to be the centre of attention. 

 

LKWD_ScreenSirenPink_130213_1280x720.JPG

 

Skinny jeans have gone even skinnier and come in a variety of colours plus value packs!

peakvox ninja

Backflipping its way into Home this week is the first update to peakvox ninja! Including an all new traditional Japanese ninja lair and outfits which bring enhanced ninja powers for Peakvox Ninja!

 

nDreams

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 before kicking in with the flame powered boost.

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

Spin the hoop around and vigorously shake your hips. When you use the hoop, it will keep spinning around your waist.

The Wizard outfit for men has arrived! In addition, the Flying Broom locomotion item can be used to fly up in the air. Choose from 3 poses by pressing the R1 button.

This large Poncho comfortably covers the upper body, giving a warm and cute impression. The bottoms are denim with leg warmers, and the cute Knit Beanie covers the ears like ear muffs.

Perfect for the City of Flowers Penthouse, stylish new furniture has arrived. Live the rich life with some stylish furniture.

That’s all for now. See you in PlayStation Home!

Depends where you live to be honest. In the U.K. it does come back on round 12:30 pm - 1 pm time but since we have a core client update too it will take a bit longer before Homes up again.

It's a client update, it always takes longer.

Imagine how long it takes you to upload a 10 minute long YouTube video. A fair while right? Times that by many many times, all those Home spaces, data, everything, all has to be uploaded.

Now imagine doing that over a 10GbE link on to a SAP application cluster running on AIX on Power Systems servers... that 10 minutes has turned into 10 seconds.

Will this update be a new home square design? Sick of the one we have it's horrible, they need to make it more realistic and make it look beautiful like that dream apartment instead of this silly kids playground look it has, less childish and more realistic I say, plus make some nice new tied up hairstyles please for women because i'd definitely purchase stylish realistic stuff thanks

As much as we HATE the new Sq. and much rather have either of the old ones back Sony won't do this. You can thank gamers for the new Sq. they said they wanted more game and game themed content ......

defo true lol I think they should make the new home square like this but with a few inside buildings for gamers to talk to other gamers inside, plus a big shopping and cinema area, it would get more people to visit the home square if they made it beautifull because everytime I've been to square its not as busy like it used to be, just a thought lol
