PlayStation Home: More Zombies And Alice Cooper

PlayStation Home will be taken offline for scheduled maintenance this Thursday 25th August at 8AM BST. During the maintenance, you will be unable to access PlayStation Home. Here’s a taster of what to expect from the update…

We have unconfirmed reports of a second wave of zombies ravaging the once peaceful island resort of Banoi this week as the undead virus continues to thrive. It is as yet unknown how far the virus has spread throughout PlayStation Home and authorities advise stocking up on the weaponry now available at the local store before leaving the area.


In a more peaceful corner of PlayStation Home, Diesel have a few tricks up their sleeve. Here’s what they have to say:

Here at Diesel we’re as proud as excited mountain goats to present you with a whole heap of tantalising new things. Our Island now has quaint, but not too posh huts that you can now own as your very own personal space to do with what you will. House parties, soirees or even teddy bear tea gathering all excepted.

We’re also introducing items that no telemarketer would dare rival: a vintage sewing machine, transgenic fruits and a nice fluffy army kit with all you need for a successful bellicose campaign. And best of all? All profits Diesel make will be given to the charity: Only The Brave Foundation, who work in education, agriculture and development in many countries around the world.


Over in the AAA store, it’s time for a little bit of Alice Cooper!

Ol’ Black Eyes is back! The shock-rock master returns with his epic new album ‘Welcome 2 My Nightmare’, produced by the legendary Bob Ezrin (Pink Floyd, KISS) and featuring huge guest spots from rock and pop megastars like Rob Zombie and Ke$ha! To mark this most monstrous of occasions, Alice comes to PlayStation Home with a whole host of incredible new items stamped with his own unique and darkly warped twist including mind-blowing stage props and one-of-a-kind outfits from his latest tour.

Visit the AAA store today to delve deep into Alice’s nightmare and get that edge your apartment and avatar desperately needs. Do it now, or Alice might just ‘Bite Your Face Off’!


In other news, Lockwood Publishing is very proud to present the new Silicon Lounge personal space from Sodium. The Silicon Lounge is a personal counterpart to the Sodium Hub festival environment; allowing friends to get together and party under the desert moonlight for the first time.


We like to think that this magical party space is the perfect solution to all your entertaining needs. Set in a secret desert location, the Silicon Lounge contains everything players need to host parties the likes of which PlayStation Home has never seen. Make a statement in this neon paradise, show off your moves on the interactive animated hexagonal dance floor or surprise your friends with luxurious gifts from the integrated Lockwood Gift Machine. And of course, when you’re all partied out, relax in the space’s hidden underground chill-out snug – if you can find it that is!

The Silicon Lounge personal space from Sodium contains:

  • Ultra-cool after dark desert setting
  • Colourful and stylish neon environment
  • Animated interactive melodic dancefloor
  • Integrated Lockwood Gift Machine
  • Luxury underground hideaway snug
  • Teleporters to Sodium2, SodiumOne and the Sodium Hub
  • Animated raised stage area


The Silicon Lounge also comes in 3 excellent value bundles. Look out for the Silicon Lounge in the Lockwood or Sodium store this week.

Double Time are back and this time, things are going to get messy. Lockwood’s leading sports brand have produced everything you’ll need for a day’s paintballing.


Before you embark on a paint-firing mission, you’d better make sure you have everything on Double Time’s checklist:

  • Paintball Shoes – When the ground is slick with splattered paint, you need shoes with grip.
  • Paintball Gun and Gloves – Only to defend yourself, naturally.
  • Paintball Body Armour – When those paintballs are zinging at you at 200 miles per hour, they HURT! Double Time’s lightweight body armour will ensure you get through your game with minimum bruising.
  • Paintball Trousers – You don’t want to use your designer jeans for this!
  • Paintball Mask – Because a paintball in the eye is not something any avatar should have to experience.


Got all that? Okay, then you’re good to go! . . . What do you mean you don’t want to get it dirty? Oh well, Double Time have thought of that too, you pristine little creature, you – slip into the non-splattered version if you want the look without the mess. Value packs are available containing both a clean and a splattered set of clothing.


In the Threads store, Castlevania: Symphony of the Night shirts are now available in Konami’s Retro Collection. Sport your favourite character with Dracula, Alucard or Death. Also check out Konami’s new Gothic range of clothing with some arcane apparel for female avatars.

Due to popular demand Baseline Battle is back! And just in time for the US Open. Whether you’re defending your title or competing to be the new champion, you’ll be mad to miss out on this ace game. Available in the Home Square from this Thursday.

Did you enjoy this?

Paint-balling outfits, without being able to paintball?!

Home is EPIC!

Great all round update.

Do you have any comment to make about the ‘hub’ coming to Home this Fall?

    James Gallagher 25 August, 2011 @ 9:36 am    

    I read that and I’m trying to find something out this morning. I don’t work on Home personally but I’ve emailed the people that do.

    James Gallagher 25 August, 2011 @ 2:59 pm    

    I’ve been chasing this all morning. I’ve been told that the core PS Home experience will indeed be getting an overhaul for SCEE towards the end of the year. We’ll be making a formal announcement in the coming weeks with more details, so watch this space.

Skookie30 24 August, 2011 @ 6:38 pm   3

Oh God sake SCEE give up give Home To SCEA this is a epic Fail just like this Post “Home be down for maintenance 15th august”

so we not getting the New improve Home like i said before a SCEA exclusive they announce it on they Blog what do we get scraps.

Indie-Boosh 24 August, 2011 @ 6:42 pm   4

Omg, Alice Cooper outfits lol Cool, going to see him live in October and will have to pay a visit to PS Home just to see his stuff.

Retro_1973 24 August, 2011 @ 6:51 pm   5

Schooooooools out for summer… 😀

tom1234321 24 August, 2011 @ 6:53 pm   6

So no HUB for us then? What big update we getting instead.. probably nothing as always.

Carnivius_Prime 24 August, 2011 @ 7:03 pm   7

Alice Cooper? Very cool 🙂

prycestation3 24 August, 2011 @ 7:08 pm   8

Do you mean the 25th august?

Skookie30 24 August, 2011 @ 7:10 pm   9

we dont know what we getting, the point is i had to go on SCEA Blog for the answers that a site said what about the shopping centre etc. a usa user ask what about stuff & jack said the answers i‘m looking for.

but should be here ask question here, we getting the core client yes but the New hub is a other client, so that doesn’t mean we be like them.

it be a remodel & relaunch if any but still different servers & same stale content notice SCEA Says UGC in the blog.

we still having got picture frames that‘s UGC too.

Skookie30 24 August, 2011 @ 7:18 pm   10

What seriously konami is having a laugh at us EU very bad taste.

“In the Threads store, Castlevania: Symphony of the Night shirts”

for the game is not out yet in EU, & Maybe never Ross said the other week konami had licence problem. yeah right.

smokeypsd 24 August, 2011 @ 7:37 pm   11

Business as usual then for us… Too bad that Home was already stupidly more formed and capable as a social tool in America to begin with even before the huge update it’s getting. I’m trying to get people involved in a club for Mubi. It’s extremely hard with the lack of support base SCEE is giving home right now though in functionality.

ErwinR55 24 August, 2011 @ 7:46 pm   12

Need more of that gothic clothing!

AaronSOLDIER 24 August, 2011 @ 7:56 pm   13

Please save IREM Square, Sony! Can’t you guys buy the rights or something? 🙁

millgate1 24 August, 2011 @ 8:10 pm   14

Ugh..please tell me that we will be getting the massive update too..

DAVIE222 24 August, 2011 @ 8:28 pm   15

no new places 🙁 hey james it would be nice if you could tell us the time evry week 🙂

cheers 😀

DAVIE222 24 August, 2011 @ 9:17 pm   16


i just heard the U.S is getting a completly new ps home! are we? please answer mait

DAVIE222 add me on psn


Alice outfit = awsomeness 🙂


That design for the US home is in a american style and probably wouldn’t suit european tastes. The euro hub if they make one has to be suited to a european style and don’t copy the US


Why ask a question here when you KNOW IT WONT BE ANSWERED



sure thing mait



do you know who i am?

if not then ask anyone on the blog. lol

bitbydeath 24 August, 2011 @ 11:55 pm   23

Hi James,

I saw the US are getting an entire “Home” revamp, will the EU side get it as well? If anywhere needs a faster running version of home then surely it would be us?

maddogarchie64 25 August, 2011 @ 6:28 am   24

Alice Coopeeeer!!!!!!!!!

l_skynet_l 25 August, 2011 @ 7:26 am   25

@10 I agree. It seems like Konami dont care much at all about the EU.

i sometimes wonder if there’s any poiunt to diesel. i learnt the hard way when i bought the jelsom hoody from them back in the days before u could try stuff on. if atop with it’s appended hoody somehow made you feel like you were wearing a nappy, then that awful jelsom fitted the bill. if you want to go about outfitted as if your mummy dresses you,then imao, go diesel. for an ever so slightly beta look then force yourselves n’dreams…really cardboard should stay in lbp. vee mee lkwd and billabong make some cool stuff…btw i’ve seen the sodium perspace and it’s an acer. getit…)

Sragonfast 25 August, 2011 @ 9:35 am   27

Sragonfast 25 August, 2011 @ 11:37 am   30

ChairyBoyArmy 25 August, 2011 @ 12:20 pm   31

To whom it may concern James or others, since the UFC space came out(in home), I and others have been unable to use the ufc spaces inculding people that have brought the personal space. It didn get mentioned on the usa blog, saying it would get fixed. but alas it has not. I understand home is not under your jurisdiction. But could you please help, if not to get in contact with someone to fix this problem, then point me in a correct direction to get it fix. Some people inculding myself wont pay for anything more on home till this is fix, as you just dont know if stuff is gonna work for everyone, just cause we are a small % that cannot get it to work, doesnt mean we are not here or have a voice. please help

Prima di imbarcarsi in una pittura-combustione missione, è meglio assicurarsi di avere tutto in lista Double Time è:

Scarpe Paintball – Quando il terreno è liscio con vernice SPLATTERED, hai bisogno di scarpe con grip.
Paintball Gun e Guanti – solo per difendere se stessi, naturalmente.
Body Armour Paintball – Quando quelli paintballs sono zinging a voi a 200 miglia all’ora, fanno male! Armatura leggera Double Time sarà sicuri di ottenere attraverso il vostro gioco con il minimo ecchimosi.
Pantaloni Paintball – Tu non vuoi utilizzare il jeans firmati per questo!
Maschera Paintball – Perché un paintball negli occhi non è qualcosa che ogni avatar deve avere per esperienza.

Capito tutto? Ok, allora siete pronti per partire! . . . Cosa vuol dire che non si desidera ottenere sporca? Oh beh, Double Time hanno pensato anche a questo, è creatura piccola incontaminate, è – scivolare nella versione non-schizzato se volete lo sguardo senza il disordine. Sono disponibili pacchetti di valore che contengono sia un ambiente pulito e una serie schizzato di abbigliamento.

polynski 25 August, 2011 @ 1:14 pm   37

Nel negozio Threads, Castlevania: Symphony of the camicie notte sono ora disponibili nella Collezione Retro Konami. Lo sport il vostro personaggio preferito con Dracula, Alucard e la Morte. Verificate anche la nuova gamma gotica di Konami di abbigliamento con alcuni arcani abbigliamento per gli avatar di sesso femminile.

Grazie alla battaglia popolare Baseline domanda è tornato! E giusto in tempo per gli US Open. Se stai difendendo il titolo o competere per diventare il nuovo campione, sarai pazzo di perdere questa partita asso. Disponibile in Piazza Casa da questo Giovedi


by now you should know that SCEE is one big fail cause they promote failure just look at their CEO getting promoted without actually improving playstation in europe not 2 mantion all the lies that flying around in the store update just 2 make it look like they doing something.

Jordyboppers 25 August, 2011 @ 4:21 pm   39

I can’t believe how awful SCEE is at communicating with other regions, why should people have to chase around for answers each week about home. There should have been a simultaneous announcement with SCEA either saying the HUB is either coming at a later point or not at all.

To be honest I really like home but all this unequal and exclusive content per region just seems bizarre, obviously some cultural specific events and items being left out I can understand but spaces/clothing just seems ridiculous.


When are we going to see Free Realms in EU?

stardeth 25 August, 2011 @ 5:23 pm   41

I don’t understand what you all are complaining about as far as the Hub is concerned, WE’VE been howling for a revised Central Plaza since you got yours. This won’t be a life-changer, people, relax!! If curiousity is gonna get the best of you, just do what us Americans do to see YOUR HOME… create an alternate account!!

DAVIE222 25 August, 2011 @ 9:50 pm   42


you shouldnt be here…..

DAVIE222 25 August, 2011 @ 9:52 pm   43


you always moan, please stop.

DAVIE222 25 August, 2011 @ 9:55 pm   44


just make a U.S account.

DAVIE222 25 August, 2011 @ 9:56 pm   45


and the beach!!!!!!!

DAVIE222 25 August, 2011 @ 9:57 pm   46


it will be difrent then the U.S update due to diffrent servers but yes we will, i just hope all servers joins into one.

DAVIE222 25 August, 2011 @ 9:58 pm   47


they dont copy U.S



heres a tip: MAKE A U.S ACCOUNT AND SHUT UP. 🙂

Skookie30 29 August, 2011 @ 8:08 am   50

@dgnfly i have known what SCEE can do or in this case can’t do i post it in the forums just tiny question jack said autumn, james said “end of year” so does that mean we don‘t have it at same time we always have a core client at the same time?

@stardeth we do make USA account unfortunately i can’t buy things as i haven’t be able to get a SCEA PSN card however i known that you have better spaces & other content like the spy game & namco game space the 1 with those games machines.

@Davie222 before you tell ppl to stop morning & shut up i know you like being helpful, but i seen you morning about things not meaning about your avatar problem.

@dante123 you say different taste so it wont work i take that content full different taste then our lackless content anyday, i too can’t judge the new home till it launch.
