PlayStation Home: A Pirate’s Life For Me

PlayStation Home_Cutthroats01

PlayStation Home will be offline from 8AM GMT on Wednesday 4th April for routine maintenance. Here is what to expect after the update…

Avast ye scurvy swabs! Man the cannon and hoist the main sail for the arrival of Cutthroats – The Battle for Black Powder Cove this week. This fun and frantic piratical extravaganza allows crews of up to 24 salty sea dogs to duke it out on the high seas of Black Powder Cove with up to six ships each holding four crew members. The game features a levelling system and a number of upgrades and of course a plethora of associated rewards. Enjoy (or we’ll keelhaul ye)!

In loftier regions of PS Home, a new dawn has broken over Aurora. Explore the wondrous islands to see what new and exciting things have arrived. Play the OMG Trap-O-Matic game for the chance to win fantastic prizes. There are a few more additions we will leave to you to discover, welcome back to the beautiful Aurora.

Delirious Squid has been away for a while, but this week marks its triumphant return! More laidback looks for budding skate stars and streetwise squidsters.

All the delirious ladies will love the Delilah dress and backpack, which comes in Black or Violet. It’s accompanied by cute ankle boots and a hairstyle with super-bright braids – not for wallflowers! Guys can get straight to skating in the comfortable shorts and hooded shirt combo offered up by the tentacled delight! There are also some leather hi-tops and fitted caps to complete the look. Both outfits are available in two colours which can be purchased in bundles.

Show your love for the Squid – don some Delirious!

The Baron is back for a limited time only! Pick up the Baron’s Eggcellent Plan Active Item from the Lockwood store and help collect those Easter Eggs!

Head over to the Threads, Furniture and Alter Ego stores this week to browse new items from the forthcoming instalment in the Hitman series – Hitman: Absolution. Kit out your avatar with a pair of Agent 47’s twin Silverballers, or give them the esteem they deserve with an ornamental gun case for your apartment.. Also in Threads this week you can find a snazzy new range of beachwear. Strut your stuff on the sand in a surfer outfit or take your pick from a variety of bikinis and other items.

Lastly, the Journey space will sadly be removed in next week’s update 11th April, so please be sure to make the most of it and bag your Journey based goodies while it’s still available!

home = no more
put u mony in games
rent movie service in europe

let me earn trophies in home games, and i would give HOME another go..
why dosent home game support trophies?

3

home used to be good……….. -____-

Don’t understand why people are always bashing Home and saying stuff like #4. Home has improved immeasurably since the early days, with tons more games and free rewards and content. It’s a great place to meet friends who own the same games and to matchmake/launch the games themselves from within home.
For a free service I don’t think there is much to grumble about except for the disparity of content between different regions and (as mentioned by #2) lack of trophy support…

are we getting the home games no man’s land, mercia and are we getting the adventure district like the usa?

this new pirate place looks fun! is it free?

Yes its free to play, its good fun too. If you have any americans on your friendslist, ask them to jump to cut throat island in their region so you can jump to them for an early look. It hasn’t been region locked. ;)

@james what the logic off removing journey space in a region that constant whine & moan about less content that EU has & SCEA has more.

this is’nt the only space to vanish dead island is a other 1 so we haven’t got every thing SCEA got but what we have will do but no sense to then remove content.

has farcry-2 space been pulled? No not many ppl were on it.

i haven’t seen the SCEA blog or been on home for a while still muslcless, videoless & home got a nasty habbit of deleteing your hard earnd rewards & bought items. :|

ninjas > pirates. ^_^

“I MIGHT JUST STOP COMMENTING ON PS BLOG FOR NOW”

PLEASE stop commenting if you’re going to use all caps like that. You look like a total idiot.

As for Home… this pirate thing actually looks good enough to draw me back in for the first time in years… BUT…

Have they fixed the stupid animation in Home yet? I hate the walking/running/whateveritis animation… it feels like trudging through a sludgy swamp in slow motion. If it was more like Uncharted’s movement, that would be better.

But not only that, the lack of any “footfall” sounds makes it feels like you’re walking on air. It’s the most rudimentary of rules for traversing through a game… make the player feel like they are actually touching physical. Walking on wood? That makes a noise. On metal? Different noise. Earth? A subtle noise, but SOMETHING.

Home has had potential to be enjoyable but gets so much wrong, it’s just not worth firing up.

But… add pirates… hmmm, now you’re thinking along the right lines…

James, can you please remove commenting rights to some of the more annoying commenters I see on every post. Davie being a shining example above with all that crap.

It looks like a nice update but I’m not feeling it.
@5: I think fourth commenter is right. Although Home has improved leaps and bounds client-side, things have definitely changed for the worse in other aspects. Lately, EU Home feels lifeless and barren, like nothing exciting is going on, as if it could just vanish tomorrow.

I’ve been spending more time in US Home and they’ve nailed the community feeling right on the head, it’s much better, people are nicer, everywhere, the place feels alive. I’d be all up for merging EU/US spaces and keeping the stores separate. B)

Come on people, I thought we got past all this hate, name calling & aggression on this Blog?

Shouldn’t we be talking about the things that we all have in common (Gaming), as that’s why we use this site on a daily basis isn’t it…..no?

DAVIE222 & CoolRichy, you just need to ignore each other & stop this. I had enough when it happened to myself & i’m fed up of reading it against other people. Why so much anger & hate though? I don’t understand it, as this is a Playstation Blog! Before you call me a hypocrite, then try & remember that I only ever replied to nasty comments directed towards myself & others, that never deserved it!

Enjoy gaming like we all do ;)

The pirate thing looks epic, i think i might give home another try!

the reason i typed in caps is because the blog constantly freezes my ps3 at it annoys me so much.
i gues im sorry for getting angry guys.

I have to say that homeEU has gotten better in the past few months. But yet as they are offering some things that they also offer in the US home site i would like to see it offer more of what UShome offers. For example pier park in the UShome offers music why doesnt EUhome? Its set up the same.

“Oh cool nice squid clothing” *Gos on home.. “Wow 2 pound for avatar cloths, F@@k that”
