PlayStation Home Scheduled Maintenance 25th April 2012

[ Edited ]

PlayStation Home will be offline from 8AM BST on Wednesday 25th April for routine maintenance. Here is what to expect after the update…

 

The big news this week is that the PlayStation Home 1.65 update is here, bringing improvements to speed and ease of use on the menu screen, graphical UI tweaks, clearer representation of furniture limits, and much more.

 

Some of the highlights include:

 

Menu Screen

The new Menu Screen replaces the old Menu Pad. It functions in a very similar way to the old Menu Pad but we have made many improvements to its speed and ease of use. Browsing your inventory from the Menu Screen now uses the same system as the Wardrobe and Furniture Browser.

 

Personal Voice Chat

The new Personal Voice Chat system replaces the old Telephone Call system. The major benefit of this new system is that a Personal Voice Chat is treated as another voice channel by the chat log which means all communication is now managed from one place: the Chat Log. You can switch between voice channels while remaining in a Personal Voice Chat without having to end the conversation.

 

Furniture slots

Each apartment or clubhouse can hold up to 100 items of furniture measured in slots. Prior to patch 1.65 a Normal Furniture Item always took up 1 slot and an Active Furniture Item always took up 22 slots. With patch 1.65 developers will now be able to create Normal and Active Furniture Items of different slot sizes. Therefore Active Furniture Items can be created that take up fewer slots and you will be able to place as many Active Furniture Items in your personal space as will fit. How many slots a piece of furniture will use is also displayed on the detail page of each item when you are viewing it in the store.

 

There are several other improvements in this patch. For full details of the 1.65 client update, visit this thread here: http://community.eu.playstation.com/t5/PlayStation-Home-General/PlayStatio-n-Home-1-65-Patch-Notes/t...

 

Also this week, Lockwood brings to you two sophisticated yet scintillatingly glamorous outfits to clad yourself in. You don’t need to be a celebrity to look amazing, after all! But, you CAN be a celebrity if you look amazing!

Timeless design with the beautiful Bombshell dress, watch jaws drop as you strut by in this sensual yet sophisticated attire. Complete the look with the value pack including voluptuous hair and glitzy heels!  The playwright is a sucker for a pretty face, look the part and he might create a dreamy role for you in the next blockbuster film. Gentlemen, wear the playwright suit to attract the eye of a beautiful lady, and let’s hope your social skills are a suave as your garb in case she comes your way! Why are you still reading? Get to the Lockwood Store and pick up your new outfit right now!

 

 

Wrangler open the doors to their first ever concept store in PlayStation Home.  Set in the West Mall, the Wrangler store brings the very latest designs to the PS Home community in virtual form. The storefront incorporates key elements from the brands rich history such as the iconic Blue Bell.  With 10 new items at launch, the Wrangler store will continue to bring the latest designs from the brand to the PS Home community in the months ahead.

Just when you thought you couldn't get any better with the new Ground Floor PS Mansion... now you can get the PS Mansion Infinity Pool to impress your friends with!!

It even comes with six items to reward them with! There is a hidden treasure somewhere in the backyard. It will unlock something special somewhere in the mansion (...not necessarily the Infinity Pool!). If you purchased the ground floor already you can now get the Infinity Pool at a discount. Either walk to the pool doors in the Mansion or head to Estates to get in on the action!

Other updates this week include a new arsenal of weapons and armour for those battling the Mononoke in the Great Edo of Nippon. Konami’s recent Secret Agent costumes are now available as individual clothing parts in Alter Ego, while in the Home Stuff store it’s peace, love and trees! Get Eco-conscious with Juggernaut Games' GreenMachine. This robotic companion was “liberated” from a top-secret government facility and reprogrammed as a free-spirited bohemian. Groovy!

Lastly, the nDreams Spring sale will be ending after this week’s maintenance, so bargain hunters be warned, this is your last chance to snap up some cut price nDreams goodies!

Meh ... Only part I like is that Sodiums having double XP weekend

 

So... which shop is closing down to make way for Wrangler ... and I hope they come up with better stuff than that ... they look like your typical run of the mill fashion you get from Threads.

Double XP weekend? Thank the gods!

Trying to get to level 40 to fulfil my weird 'I'm must collect ALL THE THINGS' Home disease, but I'm only at level 16, and I've lost the will to live.

Sodium 2 is a soul destroying grind, but it took me two days to go from level 8 to 40 by doing the industrial sector over and over and over again. Dont waste credits on rocket boosters save them up for the best afterburner upgrade, aerofoils and if possible the thor engine. and dont use airbreaks as you get bonus xp and credits for that. towards the end I was getting about 575 per run in xp and that was without using rocket boosters. I was getting xp for completing a race,not touching air breaks, staying supersonic (dont let your speed drop below 750mph), air distance bonus, and honing your skills (not using rocket boosters)

I'm so impatient with it I've broken my 'no spending money on Home' rule...again (I broke it to buy raver gear because shiny things attract my magpie instincts) and bought a couple of the best upgrades as I've unlocked them, just to make it a little more bareable and to help to keep getting the personable best bonus.

Now that the Home errors have been fixed I should be able to stop being booted as well, which will help.

But man, it's boring. Fun at first, but that was for about 5 levels. I thought getting to 30 in Novus Prime was a bit of a grind, but that seems like a breeze now.

The new Wrangler shop does seem promising, lets hope it doesn't turn out another retail for fruity male clothing. As for the 1.65 update, I'm very happy with what I saw on the leaked video.

No it means your router is broken, looks like you got a Linkseys router. Go out and buy a new one and Home will be back up for you and your socialising needs.
