PlayStation Home update: City of Flowers
PS Home will briefly be offline from 8.00am GMT on Wednesday 6th February for routine maintenance. Here’s what to expect after the update…
After 47 Days Xi: Continuum came to an end. For those of you who didn’t play along live you can now experience Xi at your own pace. This week also sees the addition of two Locomotion rewards. The first is for all players who complete the introduction level. The second is available to those who continue and reach Day 7. There are also some new items available for purchase:
On Valentine’s day 2013, get together in the Southern Island Hideaway and try the Valentine’s Super Flight with someone special, flying in the sky with the power of love! If the chemistry between the two of you is good, you’ll both receive special rewards only available during the event.
In the City of Flowers Penthouse, begin your luxurious life. In addition to the luxurious dining room, kitchen, and living room, there’s also a spacious bathroom. The wallpaper, time of day, background music and lighting can all be changed. With a bath and Jacuzzi overlooking the city and a spacious balcony, you can live a rich life.
Grace, Elegance, Beauty. Perfect, aristocratic clothes appear in the city of flowers with an elegant design. Also why not try the Magic Umbrella and drift around at your leisure like a fluffy cloud?
Visit the Home Grown Laboratory and check out the new Creature outfits. Now you can be a Troop, Critter, Sonic or Undead with full body animations. Don’t miss the new HGL Mini-Creature companions. Each “Creature Costume” or “Mini-Creature” purchased gives the owner an additional 20 free-pays of HGL if they do not already have access to the game!
Introducing “Go!” – the new range of locomotion items. Go prehistoric with the “VelociRacers”, and surf’s up with the “Billabong – Surfboard & Wave”. Try the flying “Helicopter Beanie”, show off your circus skills with the “Balance Ball”, get abducted by the “Flying Saucer & Tractor Beam”, and the “Astronaut Helmet” is out of this world.
The popular Billabong store has a load of new gear for all you fashion conscious guys and girls. Pick from a range of hats, shorts, hoodies, tops, jackets, dresses and two-part bikini bundles.
