PlayStation Home: Yeti Sighting In Winter Event Space

PlayStation Home is offline from 8AM GMT on Wednesday 25th January for routine maintenance. Here is what to expect after the update…

Reports of a mysterious cave opening up down by the water in the Winter Event space are rife this week, along with suspected sightings of what some have claimed to be an abominable snowman. Hunters and other enthusiasts are flocking to the area to see if they can catch a glimpse of the mythical yetis in the hopes of bringing back evidence of their existence. Extreme caution is advised to all those intrepid enough to go in search of the yetis and the government is advising that anyone attempting to face them stock up on precautionary ammo and other supplies at the store located at the site.

Here’s an unsubstantiated picture sent in by a local hunter, allegedly in support of these wild claims.


Inside, away from the colder regions of Home, Cucumber aren’t just about eye-popping colours (although there are still some of those in their latest collection). They also have a strong desire to create useable sets that will help you set the scene in your apartment. With Dolly’s Diner, that scene was of a bustling 1950s diner. These latest bedroom ranges are more subtle, but they still allow the creation of a complete, unified look.

Whether the look you’re aiming to achieve is one of contemporary chic, or peaceful comfort that expresses your personality, Cucumber has the furniture for you. Large double beds in a variety of colours with matching drawers and lamps are available in store now!

In other furniture news: it’s that time again! Yes that’s right, MyDeco are back with some more tantalising and tasty treats to decorate your apartments with. Quench your thirst for fruity furniture with the very inviting watermelon chair. Or jazz up your wall with a pair of luscious KissMe Neon Lips. And if you’re feeling a little tired after your trip to the Shopping Centre, why not end the day in the new Xtreme Hot Jacuzzi! Other furniture updates from SCE this week include some sleek and stylish pieces in Modern and Round Rattan styles, or turn your apartment into your very own chocolate factory with the Sweet Treats range which includes Candy Floss Rugs, Donut chairs, and Cake Couches to name a few. Tasty!

That wraps it up for this week. See you in Home…if the yeti doesn’t get you first!

With all due respect… Home is boring as hell. Sorry.

Hey James,

Is there any word on if Quests 2 and 3 will be made available in the Winter Event Space? This is something that has been an issue amongst the users of Home ever since the end of December. There has been nothing said officially regarding if this is to be fixed, if it was an oversight or if we weren’t to be expecting this to happen at all.

Any info in regards to that would be very helpful.

I just spoke with the dev team and they are still working with the questing tools to try and get those live. Sorry it’s not better news…

Can’t support the hunting of yeti’s.All they are trying to do is breed.I remember the outbreak on Piney Ridge back in 05,I can still here their song now :(

i’m sorry to break this to ppl Yeti/big-Foot doesn’t exist, it a myth unles yeti/big-Foot stomping up behind you & Kill you then it real.

you are safe to know it a myth.

@james i haven’t seen the SCEA home blog post yet, but when is home going into next phase & lose it’s beta status.

thanks :)

Not much stuff this week. Also have the Playstation Unwrapped prizes been sent out yet?

Hmm the quests 2 and 3 didn’t even got available, not sure if this new mini-game will…

I went to the novus prime page and it only allows you to pick US as your region :(

James Gallagher 24 January, 2012 @ 17:30

I just emailed Hellfire to ask for advice. Will get back to you when they reply.

James Gallagher 25 January, 2012 @ 10:50

They got back to me and it seems that they were still working on updating their site when this went live. They’re all set up to give out EU codes now so head over.

Why do all ps home games have inverted aiming ? should be an option to at least change it because of inverted aiming the games suck .

James Gallagher 25 January, 2012 @ 11:03

That’s an interesting question. I had a play around and many games (like the new Yeti one) have the option to invert aiming. For others, such as Novus Prime, if you change your native camera settings in the options menu on the Start Pad, the game should detect that change and adjust the controls accordingly.

Hope that helps.

Another Quest probably doomed to fail????

hi james is there any hope of ever getting skyrim or fallout costumes on home??

James Gallagher 25 January, 2012 @ 11:04

Nothing in the plans I’m afraid.

kinda have to agree with orton (at the moment)

James-where will see info. about your e-mail reply from Hellfire that you mentioned?

James Gallagher 25 January, 2012 @ 10:54

They got back to me over night and their site has been updated so you can head over now and register as an EU user.

When will be the new Clubhouse designs availabe like the US ones?

1st off all im having alot of question and hope to get answers.

1. is there any info about the quest’s..?
2. when do we get the new clubhouse.?
3. when do we get new personal space’s like USA has..?
4. Why do we in EU get a small update against a huge update for USA..?

James Gallagher 25 January, 2012 @ 11:05

Which clubhouses and personal spaces were you after? We quite often get the same spaces come to EU once we have had a little more time to localise them.

matthewgardiner 24 January, 2012 @ 20:29

yes i agree sony seem to think that they can just give NA all the best updates and the best we can hope for is to get these updates months down the line i used to be a huge fan of home nowadays i pop on for 5mins once on a blue moom thanks to sonys bad form
