There is some very exciting news this week for PlayStation Home users. Lockwood Publishing are proud to announce that Sodium2 – Project Velocity, the sequel to the immensely popular SodiumOne Salt Shooter, is now here. This free-to-play, futuristic racer makes full use of PlayStation Home’s true potential as a gaming platform and players can expect the following awesome features:
- A free to access gaming experience – Get straight to the grid and out on the track, anyone can play for free right from the get-go.
- Real-time multiplayer Action – Challenge your friends to exhilarating supersonic showdowns to see who has what it takes to cross the finish line ahead of the rest.
- Customisable Racers – The game’s XP and Sodium Credit systems allow you to continually modify and adjust your craft with new upgrades. Head over to the Sodium Garage and tweak your craft to pick up the pace and stay in the competition.
- Explosive Soundtrack – A relentless track listing from CoLD SToRAGE, Future Funk Squad and Subjex increase the immersion and further add to the sense of power and speed.
- Following a hugely successful closed beta period, during which the game was tweaked and tuned in response to the feedback of brave test-pilots, the game is available now to all PlayStation Home users.
Head over to the teleportal in the Sodium Hub or your Blaster’s Paradise apartment now to jump right into your Velocity Racer and get ready to feel those Gs!
The velvet glove to Sodium’s iron fist sees Lockwood indulging their softer side with the release of the Stitchkin range of companions. After the huge success of the Lockwood kittens there’s been a push to get even cuter. So Grandma Lockwood’s been knitting this week and the results are magical.
So check out this collection of crocheted cuties. These knitted Bulldogs, St Bernards, Bunnies and Monkeys now all have little woolly lives of their own! Mischievous and cute, the Stitchkins have escaped the knitting basket to roam about in Playstation Home and into the snuggliest part of your heart!
If all that wasn’t enough, these friendly little creatures have inspired Lockwood’s designers and artists to create a set of clothing and wall art as well.
Sweeter than a sweet shop, you’ll find a range of long-sleeved layered tees are available for you to wear around Home. Each and every Stitchkin has a top and a piece of amazing wall art so you can show your love for these cuddly companions.
Pick up a value pack to create a woolly wonderland in your apartment. All Stitchkin tops are available in male and female variations.
Also in the Lockwood store this week – new casual-wear and a variety of animated clothing for both male and female avatars. You can also show off your angelic side with the Angel and Fallen Angel Packs.
You asked for it. No, you really did. After the people’s poll in the Audi Home Terminal on what questions to ask the men behind the machines we sent our man Ralf in to find the answers. Ralf will be joined on stage and by satellite (sort of) by Audi representatives starting on 16th June 2011. Come and see the show in the Audi Home Terminal.
Audi 1936 Auto Union Type C e-tron – Unveiled by Audi at the International Toy Fair in Nuremberg in February 2011, this innovative and exclusive toy car is powered by an electric motor and lithium-ion battery. It is a half scale model based on the Thirties Grand Prix racing classic. It can be recharged in around 2 hours, can reach a top speed of 30 km/h and even has a reverse gear. It is suitable for children and adults of up to 1.8m in height and has a range of about 25km. The hand-finished body is made of aluminium and carbon-effect material. It is not yet in production, so once again you can admire your own Audi in PlayStation Home while you wait.
Following the announcement of Hitman: Absolution you can now wear Agent 47’s iconic suit, complete with barcode tattoo. The suit is available in both male and female variations from Alter Ego, with 47’s sleek sniper rifle case also available in the Furniture store.
Last up this week, we asked ourselves, ‘What’s the coolest thing ever?’ Answer: Dinosaurs!!! So, the LOOT wranglers have brought you our fiercest, deadliest and oh-so-cutest companion – The Lootosaurus. But beware, while all six styles are adorable, they’re clever girls. Raaaawr!
All of this and more will be available in PlayStation Home from Thursday 16th June.
For those wondering about the Welcome Home Pack, details are being finalised and we’ll post more information about this in the coming days.
