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!
