PlayStation Home: Neptune Suite Personal Space, plus Alien vs Predator Furniture and more!

I’ll start out today by confirming that the Ghostbusters Firehouse personal space, which we previously announced two weeks ago, will be releasing this week. In addition to the Firehouse, we’ll also have some Ghostbusters items in the store to help you get started decorating and movie-making. Here’s the rundown on the space from the 31st March blog post:

This space consists of three floors packed full of furniture and decorations, not least of which is your very own Ecto-1. The Ghostbusters Firehouse comes complete with movie props and portable blue screens that will be perfect for creating your own machinima movies. Just make sure you have your eyes open in case of any supernatural activity

So now onto the content for Thursday’s update that you aren’t aware of yet! Top of the list is the Neptune Suite personal space. Situated deep under water, this space comes complete with the multiplayer Blast Zone mini-game, and the rather puzzling Scramble. You’ll find the Neptune Suite in the new “plus” section of Home Estates, which indicates personal spaces with additional functionality. We’re also releasing a collection of things to wear on your head, such as horns and elfin ears.

Check out the Furniture store this week for our second release of Alien vs Predator content. This week we’ve got three pictures that can be hung in your personal space, along with the amazing face hugger display unit. Remember: the Alien vs Predator content will only be purchasable for a limited time!

This week will also see the release of the SOCOM OPFOR game space. Here you’ll be presented with a mini-game to assemble an assault weapon, with a special reward waiting for the most skilled players. Those who can successfully complete the assembly in under 12 seconds will receive an exclusive fully-playable Golden AK-47 for use in SOCOM: Confrontation. The space also features a highly addictive 5-Finger Fillet mini-game and leaderboards.

Finally, visit the Resident Evil space this week where we’ve got 22 new shirts available, spread evenly between male and female.

great looking update sounds all good

Thanks

Where’s the Namco spaces Alex?

3.1

I’ve not got any information I can share on this space at the current time.

Nice update but what’s with the American vid ?!

4.1

That’s being removed as we speak … was meant to be a Neptune vid, but we ended up with the wrong one >.<

Not too shabby. The AvP-pictures looks great:

neptune FINALLY lol , does this mean the waterfall terrace with fishing game is coming too alex , kinda bad theres no free space like namco this week bt gd update for people who buy stuff out home

Sweet the Neptune duite has finally come Epic stuff also will be picking up the ghostbuster firehouse Take a bow Thy :p

@4. I was wondering ’bout the same thing:P

also alex can we expect more gaming posters in near future , gow 3 , uc2 , ratchet , siren etc would be great but not at 1,59 a pop especially since we DONT have picture frames

Will any of the personal space items be out for Neptune this week Thy? The space as loads designed for it, going up todate the personal space tours with it, but will miss out the items for it if not due.

10.1

We have a small amount of Neptune-related items this week, and I believe we have more in the schedule.

11

Alex you said a when the Namco Essentials hitted the store it brung SCEE closer to publishing it, why isn’t SCEE publishing it?

11.1

As I said earlier, I don’t have any information I can share on the space at the moment. The decision to release this space for SCEE needs to be taken by more than just the team here, as the content is owned by Namco.

12

@11 It was said that Namco was working on a updated space so SCEE was waiting for that to save getting a old space ready when a new one is due.

13

I’m sorry i’m not really impress with this update, sure new stuff & 1 old as new that got delayed.

it been 2 weeks since NAMCO museum essential was release in our store. & a commet “a big step closer” is SCEE haveing problems with that.

it sure look like it so the update get a so-so from me :p

we should all know by now scee sit on content people and do it months later

they make sure content that costs £££ is prioritised and free spaces we actually want are left till they can be bothered

16

Hey Thy.

Do you know if the Neptune Suite’s mini game will include prizes?

Thanks :)

hi Alex,
Home needs more updates with substance not just a deluge of cosmetic additions. I don’t think ayone could argue that the content hasn’t been of a higher quality & certainly more frequent of late, but considering the disparity between the model which was first touted by Phil Harrison and what we have in actuality today, Home isn’t delivering.
Good looking avatars & spaces are all well & good but realistically quite superficial. Is there any substantial updates due which are designed to enhance user’s experience in a major way?

– VOIP in all spaces
– Media streaming functions between users. TV’s, music systems & picture frames in personal spaces.

I understand the complex legal issues surrounding some of these additions but are they actually still being considered, or have they now been abandoned from the future Home model?

18

@16 blast zone you win a little table and the puzzle gets you devil horns for your head.

plus fyi carl , scee may have most free cloths bt we also have worst home out all regions and HIGHEST prices

Alex can we get that AK-47 as an ornament at some stage for completing the mini-game?

Would be cool.:p

Wow, some of this content could be considerd as antique.

Not a surprising update, next week better be better.

23

Is the Namco space getting updated Alex? If it is I’ll forgive you

is it 1,59 for avp posters

25

@seany1 come on man! this is not the place for that type of comments!

Danny, we haven’t got the namco space yet

@ 29 yea true m8 bt so is my comment but ill leave it at that

28

@DANTE234

I’m aware of that friend. The Namco Essentials got released two weeks ago it would make sense if they launched the Essentials with the space. Thats all I’m getting at friend

29

Is the Ghostbusters furniture free? I’d be grateful if you replied Alex :)

HORNS!? Finally. As a Taurean you can understand my elation.

31

@33 The Ghostbusters space comes with free furniture items, their is a few payed items designed for it also. Take alook at the thread, i have the items that come with it listed there: http://community.eu.playstation.com/t5/PlayStation-Home/Home-Personal-Spaces-Information-amp-User-Tours/td-p/10104290;jsessionid=3A90C0C48FD4F61A7688532F1E2113B9

well well well the u.s are getting real live psn news feeds from the xmb ticker in home as of tomorrow plus a lovely new ghost ship space lol never seems to amaze me that scee are way behind in implementing actual features we need in home , redeem stations , home square world map and now the live news feeds . sorry but our home is a joke and will continue to be until we get said features

32.1

The Monkey Island personal space and other related content is due for release here in the coming weeks. In fact, we have several weeks in a row due to include LucasArts releases.

Cool update, for the good video check: http://www.playstation-home.nl/2010/04/14/neptune-suite-alien-vs-predator-furniture-en-meer/
Scroll down there are 2 video’s :)
1 for SOCOM and 1 for the personal space

34

I’d trust Carla.
And great update :D

Oh, and when does the Monkey Island Personal Space and Items arrive over ‘ere? coz the US are gettin’ it tomorrow or today.

35.1

Due next week for us!

36

this update is poor over 40 posts & only 4 response alex knows is [DELETED]

i’m not surprise that scea get better update then us.
as scea likes better more to show us up. :P

its really bad u.s is gettn features when home is made in uk

38

I like the news thing the U.S are getting in there gamers lounge, just a shame we dont have either

Lucasarts is the company that make the monkey island content, their american, so SCEE has to talk to them to get their content onto europe home i.e. monkey island, star wars, indiana jones etc, they also had to talk to SCEA to get the neptune personal space, they will have to do the same for the waterfall terrace as well, so SCEE has to talk to these companies to get this stuff onto europe home

Pretty cool update. Still waiting for an overhaul for the central plaza though, it’s really barren. :(

thought you deleted home last week anyways seany no?

@Seany1

Has Home slept with your girlfriend or something? Because all of your comments on this blog are either bashing Home, or saying that the American Home gets whatever first.

For a kickoff, the NA region consists of 3 countries. Secondly, all the major gaming press is based in the USA. Thirdly, correct me if I’m wrong, but isn’t the USA the most powerful (and richest) country in the world?.

The EU region is not as badly done by as the rest of the world. So much so, that we have the second highest number of public spaces, and two unique ones in Audi and Game. The second highest number of personal spaces, again with some of our own unique ones.

Also, did I mention you can potentially meet the Iron Man director? Or you could’ve met Dizzee Rascal/Sterophonics. That sort of thing doesn’t happen too often in real life, let alone in a virtual world.

No, you’re right, EU is stitched up by the world at large. Our Home is obviously a waste of time.

I don’t like starting flame wars, so I’l...

I don’t like starting flame wars, so I’ll end right there. And no, I don’t have the Sony TOS stamped on my forehead. I just happen to be a realist. I don’t expect the world to cater to my every whim.

Europe has a great Home, The Game and Audio are two very good exclusive spaces. I wish we had a car maker and games retailer interested in our region of Home. So I was wondering if FF13 costumes are hitting EU tomorrow?

Oh no, we don’t get redeem stations or Listen@Home, or a twitter feed! It’s a travesty! /sarcasm

I hate to break it to you, but neither do Asia or Japan. It should surely be understandable why the USA gets treated the best.

Should I mention that if you don’t want to get your comments deleted, or you don’t want to be banned from the forums, then why doesn’t anybody try speaking in a decent or positive manner? It’s also the easiest and best way of getting a response from Sony. I work in retail, so I get a massive number of customer complaints every day, and about anything it’s possible to even think of.

The majority of people who get banned are the people who flame others for no real reason other than they think said person did them wrong. I know exactly what goes on in the forums. Which is why I no longer visit them, and neither do the large numbers that used to.

gunnalot lets be honest m8 right cards on table , would you not like to be able to boot up ps3 then log right into home knowing you would have redeem stations , live psn news feed and a gd music area all in there coz i tell you i would love that and im sure loads would too as i want home to be a big part of my ps3 but the way it is now it just isnt , i know i may moan and such but u know what dude i say it like i see it unlike most who just accept 3rd best .

@Sir_Gunnalot so what do you do when you get a perm ban? and Sony will NOT say why and refuse to converse with you anymore, sit back and shut up? When you know that some members get away with ANYTHING and in fact are encouraged to stay by being activity helped on a Day to Day basis.

EU Home will NEVER fully take off till this behaviour is stopped

seany you do know that a new Home Square is being worked on right? and most likely a new shopping mall amongst other things? why not wait till then before kickin a fuss bout redeem stations etc, i’d say we’ll have quite a few good things comin in our exclusive EU home update

well plambey if they come with new home square then great but im just voicing that we definetly need them asap as its a pain logging in and out to type codes in all the time

I would love for it all to be in Home. The US even has it’s own TV series in Home! (do want)

But I know how much effort and work has to be put in as far as software publishing is concerned. And it’s much more than changing language and determining the legalities of items. Let’s not forget the NA region deals with three countries, Japan’s region with one country, Asia’s region with over ten countries, and the EU region with over forty! And yet, we’re still second best for content, rather than 4th best.

Home needs alot of interactivity as well as features that people will want to log onto Home for.
