PlayStation Home: Racing Suits And Apocalyptic Fashion

While yesterday’s announcement of PlayStation Home Version 1.50 leaves us wondering at what gaming possibilities the future holds, today we are back to the present day and this week’s content update.

After last week’s PixelJunk Monsters furniture items and today’s release of PixelJunk Shooter 2, we have more love from Q-Games in the form of five race car suits for the men and five pieces of track side attire for the ladies.

While we’re catering for any petrol heads, anyone that enters Home Square will receive a MotorStorm Apocalypse T-Shirt directing them to an online promotion where they can claim yet another T-Shirt.

Additionally, you can grab surfer clothes including board shorts and jackets in Billabong; two new dartboards, a standalone English pool table and some 50s and 60s appliances from the Vstore; St. Patrick’s Day hats and Mesmo Clothing at Codeglue; and a selection of translucent, chrome and faux leather furniture from the Furniture Store.

“yet another T-Shirt” kinda sums Home up…

@Kegs
Have u looked into the Storage? i found my missing Sodium Pilot Jacket. ;)

ill check but i never had storage last time i played, so would it have kept them?

Yes, Storage area in your wardrobe is your best bet. Make sure you give it a good 30 seconds or more to load as it can take a while to display all your items sometimes.

WhoopdeDoo wonder what over the pond gets hmm 1 thing for sure It be better then ours & when 1.50 hits they still get better stuff then us is that due to legal reason is the normal excuse. :/

Looks like the GT5 content’s been forgotten about…

@StevoB_

There was no GT5 content for Home. Read comments carefully. ;)

Probably nice update, but se scandinavians can’t enjoy it. It is six (6) weeks now that we can’t enter Home. Hello? SIX weeks? How long it takes to fix it? Have you even tried to fix it? It really is so sad…

“Yet another tshirt” indeed.
That’s home in a nutshell…

@Death_Seaker3000

I do read carefully, as I have done for each update since Home first entered open beta…

Over a month ago Thy said that some sort of GT5 event or content would be appearing in Home that would be linked to the racing suits that we got for free from Home Square, however the week that it was planned for it was left out of the update. Nothing has been mentioned since.

“There’s Gran Turismo 5 footage in the cinema – including race suit reward! – and we’ll be announcing details of some great GT5 prizes we have secured to give away very soon!”

Just thought it was worth mentioning, seeing PixelJunk and Motorstorm reminded me about it. (Oh and sorry for the double post :))

Well i never heard bout GT5 content there was nothing bout it bout few weeks ago

i reinstalled home, read a post of how it was getting better and we should check it out again, so i did.. i liked the killzone 3 minigame, was quick and fun and better than most i’ve seen in home so far (the lbp one was cool too)..was nice to see getting a free ISA outfit with that too.. the prices are still too high (i already wasted too much money on home outfits in the beginning of home:p) but yea its gotten a little better, hope it keeps that up.. ill keep it installed for now, its on my second ps3 anyway :p

oh and btw, when will i be able to download my helghast tactician boots and helmet again? suddenly disappeared out of my closet a whole while ago and it still isnt up for redownloading?

Boringggg, no more t-shirts please. Give us more games like that space one I forget the name of. Give us Mass Effect stuff, Resident Evil.. etc. Theres no incentive to buy furniture or t-shirts. Or anything really but the other stuff is actually good.

No wonder very few people go on home. you might be surprised to learne that most people who own ps3’s are over 12 years old and male but week in week out content is mainly clothes to dress our vurtual dollies or furniture for the vurtual dolls houses. But you already know that and continue to ignore feedback.

really now, home has over a million users and I doubt your grand statistic on 12 year olds who can’t spell ‘virtual’ is true. (Y)

I must say that Billabong’s men’s range of jackets, and in particular the two pairs of pants which have been quietly slipping in the store over the last few weeks, have been a very pleasant surprise indeed. The pants, I think are the coolest lookintg ones ever made available in Home, and the fact you can go to your local Billabong store and buy them for real means you can have your cake and eat it as well. Not so for Pixeljunk. Last weeks items, tho very visualy well made were, in my view over the top priced. They cost in their intirety FOUR times the cost of a top priced perspace. Add to that the fact that you are buying shades of the same tree for example, and folks we have a scam. Enough moaning from me on that subject. Looking forward to BOTH upcoming home updates. Many thanks to the team at Home.
