On Thursday 13th October from 8AM BST PlayStation Home will be briefly offline for scheduled maintenance. Here is what to expect after the update…
This week PlayStation Home gears up for the release of Uncharted 3 with a brand new space and game – Fortune Hunter! Set in the sun-baked streets of Yemen, Fortune Hunter challenges you to step into the shoes of Nathan Drake and explore your war-torn surroundings while collecting hidden treasures. You must survive wave after wave of incoming attacks from enemies who are out to stop you from grabbing the loot. Ruthless gunmen, toppling crates and collapsing walls are all dangers to watch out for, so do Nathan Drake proud and keep your eyes peeled at all times.
To help you on your quest are loads of hidden weapons – there’s a pistol, a machine gun and even grenades to get your hands on if you’re wily enough to spot them. Use your ammo to take down enemies and complete objectives, hunt out all of the treasure and battle fierce bosses.
Check back over the coming weeks for new challenges – complete them all and you will receive a voucher code for a Kickback Endurance Booster for use in UNCHARTED 3: Drake’s Deception!
Also this week, following Hudson Soft’s recent release of the Elemental Monster Online Card Game on PS3, you can now find the Elemental Monster Lounge in PlayStation Home. Head on over to find out more information about the game, discuss strategies, or just to chat with fellow players.
VEEMEE releases a fabulous new range of tables and chairs in their Original V-Store this week. With twelve colours to choose from you’re guaranteed to find one that suits you.
Continuing from last week’s action theme, the Alter Ego store has a new range of elite combat suits for both male and female avatars.
For the men and if brute force is your thing, take your pick from the heavy Bruiser and Druiser armour and crush any resistance you encounter! For something a little more mobile, get equipped for any hostile situation with the Renegade, Blackhawk and Rhino combat suits. If you prefer the stealthy approach, go for the cutting edge Viper Ninja and prototype Cyborg Ninja outfits, designed for those who circumvent danger and then poke it in the eye!
Female avatars can get kitted out in a sneaky Ninja outfit, look stylish yet deadly in a guerilla Soldier uniform, or opt for the Armed Vigilante’s scintillating bad girl look. If you want to mix and match, all clothing parts are available individually or to make a saving just grab one of the value bundles.
As we’re approaching the spooky season of Halloween, we’ve re-released some classics such as Frankenstein, Werewolf, Witch and Ghost costumes – just check out the Featured items from Home Square or the Navigator. Keep an eye out of the next couple of weeks for some new ghoulish items!
Recently you may have noticed some purchasing issues occurring in Home, most notably users have not been receiving some of the paid for items from nDreams that have been released over the past couple of weeks. We’d like to inform users that these were SCE issues and have now been fully resolved, so everyone that has bought some of the affected content should now have received it. We’d also like to thank the community for bringing this issue to our attention and would like to encourage you to continue to do so in future.
We are also investigating the other content related issues that have been occurring recently and will keep the community posted on our progress.
