PlayStation Home Client 1.55 Arrives
On Thursday 29th September from 8AM BST PlayStation Home will be briefly offline for scheduled maintenance. Here are some details on what to expect after update:
This week’s PlayStation Home bumper update kicks off with the 1.55 client update, with some improvements to the Home start up flow, wardrobe and furniture browsing, and much more. Full details of the client update can be found here.
Two weeks ago, we asked the PlayStation Home community to post on the official PlayStation Forums, screenshots of their favourite places, activities or games in Home. Users did not miss the opportunity to try on their favourite outfits and work out their best angles and poses. Some even invited friends to a very special photo shoot. Their creativity really showed up and you can now have a look at a selection of the best bits by heading over Home Square. And because sharing is what makes us a community after all, continue unveiling your talent for in-game photography in Home at community.eu.playstation.com.

This week also sees the arrival of the Ansa da Fone apartment from nDreams. This truly unique apartment is unlike anything you’ve ever seen before in Home. It’s a huge 4-storey cartoon apartment seen from a side-on camera view, where you can play a frantic 4 player mini game with your friends or chill out and redecorate.

Ladies, get ready to go adventuring in deep space with this week’s addition to the Novus Prime store! The Nebulon-Interweave Power Suit is the latest in high-tech functional fashions that all the female pilots of the Novus Prime fleet wear under their armoured gear. While this suit is usually hidden behind layers of power armour, you can finally show off these sweet threads. The included tiny Nebulon reactor creates channels of cascading energy to provide all the power any pilot needs to jump into combat with your Mech-Suit or fighter ship. Not only does it provide the full array of comfort and mobility, you’ll also look great wearing it.
In Sodium2 this week you’ll find an awesome new track – Descent. Descent is set within the network of cave left behind by an unregulated iridium mining operation deep below the surface of Sodium exoplanet Iridos. The Velocity Racing League has since claimed this area for the purposes of extreme underground racing. This dark and twisting track provides some serious thrills, and is also available in reverse mode! Head to Sodium2 now to test your skills.
