PlayStation Home update: Fly over the Kingdom of the Skies!

PS Home will briefly be offline from 8.00am BST on Wednesday 10th July for routine maintenance. Here’s what to expect after the update…

Lockwood – Kingdom of the Skies
The Genie has heard tell of a gem not yet added to his collection, hidden in the distant Kingdom of the Skies. Genie magic has granted access to this Kingdom’s bustling bazaar, but only a chosen few may progress beyond. Those without magic carpets are of no use to the Genie – how will you gather his gems if you cannot fly? However, even owning a carpet is not enough to be permitted to alight on one of the Kingdom’s many scattered islands. Only those who have taken the time to know the Genie and understand his ways are invited to explore every island and uncover every secret.


Fairytale
Some of you may remember the launch of the Fairytale King and Queen of Hearts way back in February. These were outfits based on designs by Home user Jennifer Whitbread and created by Lockwood. Shortly afterwards, users were asked to vote on which of Jennifer’s designs they’d like to see in Home next. The overwhelming result was for Red Riding Hood and the Red Rider, so Lockwood got to work making them a reality!

Screen Siren Gift Machine Edition
Help your friends get those va-va-voom curves with the Gift Machine editions of Lockwood’s popular Screen Siren outfit. In three luxurious colours – gold, platinum and sapphire – send the Siren in your life a head-turning treat!

Home is like bad, interactive Poser “art” where “special” people dress up as scantily clad women in “awesome” fantasy surroundings. It is all kinds of creepy! I would never, ever let my kids near Home on our PS3.

@3 well if that’s what you think it’s about, it kinda says more about your own perceptions than what it’s actually capable of. What you described can pretty much describe most online social gatherings if you’d like to. I’ve been using Home to keep in touch with friends and family across Europe since so very few of them live in the UK anymore. No I’m not really into all the ‘trendy’ clothes and such (my avatar tends to be deliberately older and rugged looking, sorta Wolverine-inspired helped by the Origins claws given away a few years ago), but I’ve bought a few things which I’ve liked such as the TARDIS personal space since most of my friends are Doctor Who fans. It’s neat having a 3D avatar hub of sorts to get together and chat and play a few games and very easy to set up even for my parents in Spain who are not very tech-savvy at all.

My perceptions are merely based on the images on this blog, and that’s the kind of vibe I get from those. It looks scarcely different from the horrible Poser doll galleries you inadvertently stumble across from time to time in the world of 3D graphics and galleries.
