PlayStation Home: Hip Hop Heroes
In PlayStation Home everyone loves to dance. Wherever you go there are people showing off their moves. This week though there are some new dance kings and queens arriving to destroy the dancing competition. Street Moves Vol.1 from nDreams is a collection of four full body outfits, available individually, each with their own unique street inspired dance animation. You have B-Girl and B-Boy who will leave everyone dazzled with their moves and then there is Hip-Hop Honey and Hip-Hop Hero who will bring their own attitude to PlayStation Home.
And you can’t dance without a little accompanying music so you should check out the Street Moves Vol.1 Companion, your very own Boom Box that will follow you around helping to set the stage wherever you are to pull out some seriously impressive moves. Check out the Street Moves crew at the nDreams store or any shop in Aurora.
When it launched three weeks ago Blueprint:Home allowed users to create their own apartment space for the very first time in PlayStation Home. The last two weeks have seen the Classroom and Asylum style packs released giving users even more options when customising their apartments. The community has been using their imagination to build some great apartments including a Silent Hill inspired maze created by AkumaPrince and how about mybro92’s Killzone inspired Helghast Base of Operations?
To aid in even more fantastic creations, this week sees the Bling Style Pack being released for Blueprint:Home. The Bling Style Pack gives you access to six new feature items to compliment your own furniture, six regal looking interior wall options as well as new ceiling, floor and external wall options. When you have put the finishing touches to your creation make sure to share any images or videos with nDreams and the rest of the Home community.
You can pick up the Bling Style Pack and all other available Style Packs from the Blueprint Store, the Estates store or any shop in Aurora.
