PlayStation Home: Aliens Abducting Cows!

Following on from the very busy week just gone, we have a relatively quiet week this week. For those who haven’t visited the E3 Booth space and watched the trailers found within, drop by tonight as the Booth will disappear tomorrow!

How is your team doing in the World Cup so far? Mine seems to think football is meant to played 10 vs 11… Anyway, arriving in the store this week we have a big selection of shirts for you to show your pride for your team. We have official team shirts from Umbro and Puma, and a range of interesting designs for the other nations.

Now that the Stuff store is open, we plan to stuff it full of interesting items. Last week saw the release of the Dice object; this week you’ll find a new item that’s out of this world. Place the Active8: Apartment UFO in your personal space and watch the aliens come to abduct cows.


The Playground store updates this week with more 80’s styled clothing for both male and female. We’ll have even more in the weeks to come, so keep checking back! Of particular note this week is the music playing Boombox, which allows you to bring the unique music found in the Playground to your personal space.



With June rapidly disappearing into history, we wanted to remind you all that time is running out to set a score for the chance to win one of ten Iron Man costumes! If you aren’t on that top ten leaderboard for the Iron Man 2 mini-game yet, you’ve only got less than two weeks left to set that score!

Sweet :)

Hey Thy, do you have any news about chess fixes?
Thx for this update :)

Alex Weekes 24 June, 2010 @ 11:17

There’s fixes for Chess coming, however they weren’t ready for this week. We do have fixes for the Shooting Hoops and Tug Of War mini-games that we hope will resolve the ‘game is unavailable’ problems many have encountered.


Nice updates for HOME lately, love it :)

Not the update i was expecting. Oh well.



Anymore news on the Waterfall Terrace apartment?
Are we getting the Cabin Boy game that the US got?
Lastly any news on the hovercrafts?

TheSabreman 24 June, 2010 @ 11:06

Would it be possible to include prices in future updates ?

Not necessarily all items as that could be a big job some weeks but maybe list prices of items mentioned in the blog.

no toy story space like u.s and there was me thinking you guys said you would be getting spaces out faster now coz the backlog is pretty much cleared up , well the stuff you want to deal with anyway .

Alex Weekes 24 June, 2010 @ 11:18

We’re working with Disney to bring the space to Europe as well.


Wait the e3 booth is disappearing?
Then why was there a shop in the booth it was empty :/


Another good update, just wish every update was like last weeks one :)

Alex Weekes 24 June, 2010 @ 11:22

We’d all be insane inside a month if they were…

Alex Weekes 24 June, 2010 @ 11:16

There’s an additional item that was added to the update late and therefore didn’t make it into the blog post:

Visit Stuff this week to pick up the Darts board furniture item that you can place in any personal space.

thy can i ask why you always just ignore the prices of these items when u.s always list prices of stuff in posts , maybe start listing prices for everything instead of trying to get people to enter home just to see they are overpriced

Thats great, thx for the answer :)

Any news on Disgaea spaces?

Seany probably because for EU it has to be typed in a large amount of different currencies whereas the USA its only the dollar.

LagunaHeartly 24 June, 2010 @ 11:49

Great update.
LOVE Playground space, 80s FTW.



thanks for the cool update.

Could you please tell me if the Toy Story 3 personal space (Andys room) is going to make its way onto the EU Home space?

JENNA-BABE-88 24 June, 2010 @ 12:06

@ 11, good point, well made. Details of pricing would be nice on the blog, especially as pricing seems to be a hot potato at the moment… *thinks that is possibly why prices are NOT included here*

kool-chris93 24 June, 2010 @ 12:18

Nice update (:

I’ve got a question though, how do you actually get the digital E3 suits? I went to the PlayStation booth in home, watched the trailers to unlock the second area and I didnt recieve anything and I’m not sure if I was supposed to :P

Nooo thts not fiar i didnt even get a chance to go to the e3 space cause my ps3 is broken :( bad times



Is the pool table due for next week Also are EU getting Cabin Boy?

Alex Weekes 24 June, 2010 @ 15:31

I can’t confirm a date on the pool tables just yet, however they are due very soon.

Cabin Boy – not 100% confirmed yet, however we want to release it here. We’ll let you know once it’s all nailed down. Same applies for the Toy Story 3 personal space.


@Danny It was meant to be today but I guess Sony pulled it away again like they do most things. But yes I’d like to know if it’s coming next week now too.

@Thylaudax Is the Playground Boom-box free with playground apartment? It goes with it and it comes from playground so it should be right because that apartment is empty and you get nothing with it.

Also home seems to be laggy once again since new square and shopping centre, it also crashes sometimes too.

Alex Weekes 24 June, 2010 @ 15:32

The Boombox is a purchased item, as is the rest of the Playground themed furniture.

jome is just a lgfest these days when you first enter any space you are stuttering about for at least 2 minutes , also just reading about people buying dartboard and ufo thing and its not showing they have it lol should teach people to stop buying things time and time again then , how many times do you need to get burned before you stop playing with fire

Alex Weekes 24 June, 2010 @ 15:33

No bugs with the UFO, and the Dartsboard purchase issue has already been resolved.


lol the E3 space, that’s priceless..
it’s already gone, that first paragraph is such a tease.

Alex Weekes 24 June, 2010 @ 15:34

Apologies for that – the blog post was meant to be posted last night, however it was delayed until this morning.


Why is the helicopter hit game still on the reflection of the bubble machine, but its not in shopping centre? It was a great move to not put it back in, well where it was meant to go, but please tell me thats just a bug and your not planning on putting it there still, because many people would hate that.

BalramRules 24 June, 2010 @ 19:44

we need animals in PS Home don’t we?

@Alex Weekes:
Will we ever get to just buy the Iron Man suit? Any variation would be fine… though if not Iron Man then at least some other Marvel hero? As I’ve probably said in the past, minigames within Home are played by the same people 24/7 just to become number 1 and play some more to cement their positions.. hardly fair but you’ll probably argue otherwise. Heh. Perhaps I should leave my job and play Home full time?

Also, I like the playground space. I was wondering, though. The firehouse would be a good place to link the Ghostbuster Personal Spaces to, any chance of that happening? And maybe… I dunno.. getting XMB music into the game?

Oh and, I havent checked in a while. Do we have picture frames yet? And does the tug-of-war game allow more than 1 guy to play? *cough* and did the HomeTV team forget about the rewards? :P I think I won the first ever competition hehe.


Every time i go in the shopping centre & look in a shop then i go to another shop home keeps freezeing why is that?

churchill-5 26 June, 2010 @ 19:51
