PlayStation Home will be taken offline for scheduled maintenance this Thursday 25th August at 8AM BST. During the maintenance, you will be unable to access PlayStation Home. Here’s a taster of what to expect from the update…
We have unconfirmed reports of a second wave of zombies ravaging the once peaceful island resort of Banoi this week as the undead virus continues to thrive. It is as yet unknown how far the virus has spread throughout PlayStation Home and authorities advise stocking up on the weaponry now available at the local store before leaving the area.
In a more peaceful corner of PlayStation Home, Diesel have a few tricks up their sleeve. Here’s what they have to say:
Here at Diesel we’re as proud as excited mountain goats to present you with a whole heap of tantalising new things. Our Island now has quaint, but not too posh huts that you can now own as your very own personal space to do with what you will. House parties, soirees or even teddy bear tea gathering all excepted.
We’re also introducing items that no telemarketer would dare rival: a vintage sewing machine, transgenic fruits and a nice fluffy army kit with all you need for a successful bellicose campaign. And best of all? All profits Diesel make will be given to the charity: Only The Brave Foundation, who work in education, agriculture and development in many countries around the world.
Over in the AAA store, it’s time for a little bit of Alice Cooper!
Ol’ Black Eyes is back!

To mark this most monstrous of occasions, Alice comes to PlayStation Home with a whole host of incredible new items stamped with his own unique and darkly warped twist including mind-blowing stage props and one-of-a-kind outfits from his latest tour.
Visit the AAA store today to delve deep into Alice’s nightmare and get that edge your apartment and avatar desperately needs. Do it now, or Alice might just ‘Bite Your Face Off’!

Double Time are back and this time, things are going to get messy. Lockwood’s leading sports brand have produced everything you’ll need for a day’s paintballing.
Before you embark on a paint-firing mission, you’d better make sure you have everything on Double Time’s checklist:
- Paintball Shoes – When the ground is slick with splattered paint, you need shoes with grip.
- Paintball Gun and Gloves – Only to defend yourself, naturally.
- Paintball Body Armour – When those paintballs are zinging at you at 200 miles per hour, they HURT! Double Time’s lightweight body armour will ensure you get through your game with minimum bruising.
- Paintball Trousers – You don’t want to use your designer jeans for this!
- Paintball Mask – Because a paintball in the eye is not something any avatar should have to experience.
Got all that? Okay, then you’re good to go! . . . What do you mean you don’t want to get it dirty?
