PlayStation Home: PlayStation Move Event, Plus More Empire Strikes Back!

So what’s happening in PlayStation Home this week? The two key highlights are the newest event – PlayStation Move takes over the Presentation Podium – and the next batch of costumes for LucasArts’ Empire Strikes Back 30th Anniversary. There’s more as well, so let’s get into the details!

With its latest transformation the Presentation Podium becomes the perfect party space for PlayStation Move fun and games. Kicking off tomorrow, visitors to the PS Move event space will be granted a unique PS Move controller outfit that you’ll need to access the full event space and team challenge. Don your outfit, grab three other event attendees, and commence the team challenge. Coordinate with your team successfully and you’ll earn new colour variants of the controller outfit, with the ultimate prize an outfit with animated multi-coloured orb! Also available to purchase within the space is a special sparkly multi-colour PS Move controller outfit with exclusive all-new special emotes!

Week two of the Empire Strikes Back 30th anniversary celebration kicks into gear with more fantastic costumes! Looking to capture a Rebel and claim a bounty? Look the part in one of three new bounty hunter costumes, including the Boba Fett Mandalorian Outfit! Make sure to browse carefully through the LucasArts section of the store this week, as there’s a special item available free for one week only! Drop into the Cantina space Thursday evening, starting at 5:00pm BST, for a live chat with Star Wars continuity expert Leland Chee.

If you’re a lady in search of a new pair of shoes, Lockwood have the answer this week with a range of stiletto shoes in a variety of colours and two styles. Also available is a range of full length trench coats (male and female), and three very cute fluffy bunnies for your personal space.

The classical piano: re-imagined by Audi Design & Bosendorfer, brought to life in the Audi Home Terminal in PlayStation Home. Playing the piano is about concentration, flair, and timing. And so is the Audi Design Bosendorfer piano game. Completely free to play and with 3 classically inspired difficulty levels, the piano game challenges you to hit the right notes at the right times in a bid to win 2 great formal wear reward items (one male, one female) and, for the most talented pianists, the prestige of being on the leaderboard. The Audi Design Bosendorfer piano game from Audi: find it in the Audi Home Terminal after Thursday’s update.

Finally, as previously mentioned through the Message of the Day, the FevaArena will be removed during maintenance.

Looks good! :)


OMG great update guys the females of Home will be happy this week lol. also Move event looks epic


The PS Move controller outfits are rather cool :)

Nice update there alex.

Cleavaged trenchcoats, yay!


I’ll be around to answer comments until half past, then I have ot run and do more work. I’ll respond to further comments later tonight and tomorrow morning.


Wow, there’s going to be a LOT of Boba Fetts running around.


Oh no keep the Arena! :(


Lockwood :D
Thy is any of the new Star Wars costumes for female or more planned over the next weeks?
Nice update, Thanks :)


The bounty hunter costumes are all wearable by female avatars, however Luke, Solo and Lando are male-only.


Do Sony actually consider this a success? The amount of ‘visions’ they had for it and 70% of them never came through mainly streaming videos to friends to watch together and a trophy room.

I guess the main problem I have with it is, its neither a XMB nor a game. It doesn’t really know what it wants to be.

Anyway if putting less time into move means you are putting time into developing the stuff that people really want such as cross party chat, cross party chat and cross party chat then great!

Is there going to any plans to do a Playstation Plus space, Littlebigplanet 2 and GT event spaces?
And when will the new part of LBP Playground open?


None of those are questions I can give answers for currently, sorry!


Also could you tell James about the bug where if you have already played a game for a rent for example then play the full game trial game.

It deletes your trophies (locally) and resets to 0% and as I still have the game in my list I can’t sync it back up to PSN again to get the trophies back listed properly (locally).

My trophies on my id are fine but it has major messed up my local stats.

whats the lucas store freebie?


You’ll have to check and find out :p


Gonna be a LOT of Boba Fetts running around.

Another great update for tomorrow but I’m curious as to where the Irem Square content went, is it due tomorrow or is it coming soon?



It’s not this week, but definitely (I’m crossing my fingers!) coming soon. Busy few weeks coming up…

No Jar Jar costume? :D

Lucas should have made some mini game like a pod racer game or a 2D shooter, that would have been nice.

Probably going to play the piano mini game.

Thanks for the response Thylaudax, Home’s improving alot recently!

*Fingers crossed!*


i love me a guitar hero type mini game.

i’m undefeated on tug of war even when i played 2 against me.
