December is definitely a month for celebrations. The festive season is upon us, and it’s also Home’s first birthday! We’ve got some great new updates for you this week:
The first anniversary of the PlayStation Home is rapidly approaching, and we’re rewarding everyone who has joined us in making Home an amazing community. As our treat to you, we will be giving away the fantastic new Tree House personal space for free. Available from Home Estates from this Thursday, the Tree House will be free for a period of two weeks only. The Tree House is sure to be a great addition to your estates portfolio, so make sure to get yours!
Once you have your Tree House, you may want to check out the new MotorStorm: Pacific Rift camp personal space. This is the perfect beachfront campsite for you to unwind in after a day of brutal off-road racing.
Complete with a dance tent, and your own personal dock for any incoming nautical traffic. Let’s hope the volcano in the distance doesn’t erupt any time soon. Available from tomorrow, in the Estates section of the Shopping Centre.
Not content with celebrating our anniversary, we’re also celebrating the festive season with the opening of the Winter Wonderland space. This space will evolve over time as you help Santa’s bumbling elves complete the festive decorations. Make sure to visit Santa in his grotto regularly so you don’t miss out on any of the mini-games. Finally, being the festive season, you’ll also find plenty of gifts and other rewards that will make this space somewhere to visit daily.
Finally, over in the Alter Ego store, a crazy fashion designer has been let loose. If you’ve ever wanted to saunter around home with a coloured light on top of your head, now you can! For both male and female, these flashy hats come in four colours – red, blue, green, and yellow – and are sure to make you stand out in a crowd. For those who enjoy hiding their identity, there are also two new masks available.
As an additional piece of news, a resolution for the Z(7,-104) error that a small number of people were encountering when logging in to Home has been identified. In order to resolve this problem we will be rolling back the last reward item that was received on affected accounts during the Thursday downtime. Once this rollback is complete, those affected will be able to log in to Home again with all of their other rewards and items intact.
Due to the extra work being carried out, this maintenance period will need to be extended. We will endeavour to have Home back online as soon as possible.
