Crystal Hunter is a free update to the Avalon Keep personal space. Crystals have started appearing on the ground and in the sky! Trade them with Barlow the Merchant to buy new items or donate them to the Noble Houses or the Kingdom itself to unlock community rewards.

Granzella Japanese Teahouse
The Japanese Teahouse from Granzella is a peaceful personal space. On this secluded wilderness mountain-side lies a small teahouse. Host a tea party and welcome your guests. Forget the hustle and bustle of the city for a while and enjoy a peaceful moment. By building this personal space according to wabisabi thinking, the small teahouse is designed to bring guests closer together. Dressed in the Tea Ceremony Kimono, enjoy peaceful moments, wrapped in the aroma of tea.

Cucumber Modern Lines Bathroom
Cucumber returns with a range of bathroom furniture. Make your apartment that little bit more comfortable with the Modern Lines bathroom suite. Head to the Lockwood store and choose from the traditional Woodland colour scheme, or the bright, contemporary Dazzle set. If neither of those take your fancy, there’s also an exclusive monochrome set available from the Gift Machine.

The Casino
Here’s an important message from The Casino Management:

Dear Guests,

As some of you might have noticed, your complimentary room is a little bit warmer than usual. This may, or may not, be a result of the spontaneous combustion that has recently occurred in the building. Firefighters have been dispatched and they are advising that if people return to their rooms to remember to bring crumpets and marshmallows. Remember, only you can prevent Casino fires.

Sincerely,
- The Management

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

Did you enjoy this?

Another pointless game for Home where other contents cost money. Do we need more FTP games while the contents cost money. Any chance for more ”interesting” public spaces? I mean all we get is private spaces and game spaces now. :(

Also, disappointed there is no T-500 Arnie (the one with the glasses) on there. -_-

    Hey Supersmith,

    PS Home is always evolving and getting new content, spaces and games. There is still a lot to come out on the horizon. Definitely stay tuned for more details.

 

sigh, hanging on to dare life still..

Retro_1973 30 October, 2012 @ 5:20 pm   4

Great update! Terminator outfits FTW! :D :D :D

 

what a really dumb acronym you are using just to call a game FUBAR when FUBAR is already an acronym for F*&^%£ Up Beyond All Recognition

oh and its a military term like SNAFU

 

Hi guys, I just downloaded version update 4.31… but see no difference. It didnt tell me what changes there were either.

Can anyone tell me what changed?

@spikkle

Apparently it was just to improve system stability and fix issues with Monster Hunter Portable 3rd HD(only out in japan)

Hmm, Nothing for me this week. Happy Halloween to everyone soon.

Wishing everyone a Happy Halloween!

 

British Summer Time (BST) ended on Sunday 28 October. Why are you giving details of down time in BST?

First, that teahouse looks really nice.

Second, can we please keep the old Home Square? I’ve been going there first because it’s a nice hangout. I only liked the idea of the new square because you told us we wouldn’t constantly be re-downloading it every one/two weeks. But we still do and it’s a bigger download to boot. It really is a bland space, so yeah. Old square ftw.

Third, I agree with supersmith, more interesting public spaces, less shoddy game spaces. I come on home to socialise. I play my PS3 games for gaming. The only issue with more public spaces is there aren’t even enough English speakers anymore. It feels like the population is dwindling, please merge NA and EU spaces in a 2.0 client update.

 

Hey, I’ve bought the Borderlands 2 season pass last week but the DLC just doesn’t appear for download in the in game list! Who can fix this issue?

“Terminator 2: Judgment Day” clip from Youtube is marked as private and unable to play.

Tried to play FUBAR (dreadful name) twice, both times it’s frozen up after about 10 minutes so won’t be trying a third time. Shame because for once, this actually had some promise of being playable unlike the rest of HOME!

 
CoolRichy008UK 31 October, 2012 @ 1:33 pm   27

craggyisland TOUGH

 

I just had to laugh when I saw that the game was named F.U.B.A.R.

I hope the people behind it were aware of it.

 
XzSlLENTSNIPERzX 31 October, 2012 @ 1:58 pm   29

Hahaha at the FUBAR definition. I think it is quite a bad name but the game looks good; speaking of HOME, why not add trophies? That would double it’s population by attraction trophy hunters.

In regards to COD4 being offline, they’ve shut off the servers for MW, WAW and MW2 due to the server building being in the path of hurricane Sandy; It’ll be up in a few days though.

 
lianplay_1985 31 October, 2012 @ 4:22 pm   30

WoW!!! Terminator 2 in PlayStation home…. Mega!!!

 

Start FUBAR and yellow title screen with “Server Error. Please try again later.”

Does not work!

Another problem with your service Sony. Thanks.

Keith

 

I do like that new Cucumber ergonomics going on there, very swish…

What I do not like is the rehearance of the very loud, infinitely looped screen in our beloved Shopping Centre, and worse it’s SOUND whilst I am trying to shop and choose something in Threads. I thought we went over this and you learnt how-not-to-scare-off-customers the last time you finally sounded it to off for Threads shoppers. Yes, I know I can turn the sound down on my TV, but then I have to go and remember to turn it all the way back up when I finish. Funny how we all move in this near-dreamlike silence in Home, yet this awfulness ad infinitum can disturb the rest of the silence that is Home(namely ADVERTISING). Switch it off within the Threads Store boundaries PLEASE, for the love of LordRoss…

Well the Home staff cannot, nor the readers herein, but Sony Playstation support can. Call 0600 411 911 in Suomi9 (but beware it costs)or you could trythe official forums. Keep trying the code because new hgame’s codes sometimes do not get undudded until after the weekly store update
