PlayStation Home: Get Gothic

PlayStation Home will be offline from 8AM BST on Wednesday 13th June for routine maintenance. Here is what to expect after the update…

For those who may not be aware, a late addition last week was the PlayStation Home Mansion Garage, which is now available from the Estates store. A mansion really isn’t a mansion without an expensive place to keep your rides. That’s why we created this over-sized four-door garage. Your showroom comes equipped with overhead lights to help show off your prized vehicles, and even comes with its very own golden Chess and Draughts tables to keep your brain sharp. There is more to this fancy showroom that meets the eye; can you find the missing pieces? As an added bonus, each section of the PlayStation Home Mansion includes up to 5 unique gold rewards for you and your guests.

GoldClock - Home Update

When passing by the Casino you may also notice that the renovations are now complete, and we’re happy to announce the installation of all new Roulette tables now available in the Roulette & Big Six Wheel Room. The croupiers are standing by for your play right now! Stop by and have a spin today!

Gothiccathedral - Home Update

Elsewhere, in a more eerily lit part of PS Home, an abandoned Gothic cathedral rests on the Cliffside above a quiet town. Konami invites you to move in and make this mysterious place your home. Sit by the fireplace, admire the stained glass windows, admire the gargoyle statue or look over the town below from your very own balcony. Furnish this cathedral with a 7 different items including wall statues, rug, bed, chairs, throne, table and pews. Once you settle in, you’ll never want to leave! This apartment is also available for Open House viewings for a limited time. Simply check out the preview on the PS Home navigator and explore the cathedral for yourself.

Also this week, a selection of Zodiac themed statues arrives in the Furniture store. Whether you’re a passionate Scorpio or an adventurous Aries, one of these star sign statues will make a fitting addition to any apartment. If astrological sculpture is not your thing then head over to the Stuff store where three new companions are waiting to be taken home – a fox, an iguana, and a giant spider. There’s also some new clothing in Threads, including the much-requested Corset Bundle for the ladies, and some bombastic bling for male avatars.

Corsets - Home Update

Good news for Ninjas fighting in Operation: Defend Edo! The Sexy Ninja series turns the image of the once stoic Ninja on its side. Also available, the Kunai throwing knife. Each one a powerful projectile. This week we’re introducing another new item for the Ninja! Come on! Today’s the day you become a Ninja and prepare for the upcoming Ninja 2012! Stay Tuned for more details.

FireJugglers - Home Update


It’s the willingness to follow you anywhere. It’s the urge to go crazy with excitement when you’ve returned home. It’s trust placed in you. It’s knowing that you’re in it together. It’s the way th- Oh hey! Is that a treat? Gimme gimme gimme! Introducing the Loyal Shiba Dog from Granzella for PlayStation Home!

That wraps it up for this week. See you in PlayStation Home!

where can i get such Journey Avatar like yours ?

Hi there Benny,

How great is Journey? I really enjoyed it. You can get it from the Little Big Planet Website.



Good to see some new furniture come, the lack of choice in furniture during the last 6 months makes apartments boring.

Surprised SCEE didn’t create any football related items with the European Championships happening.

It seems questionable that the the worlds biggest sport has little or no coverage in Home infact there are more US baseball/football things ?

Would it be possible to bring back the Feva Arena with a few modifications & just call it SCEE Arena. Or how about bring back the items you could get from that space ?

Yup, new apartments will keep coming. Just hold tight and stay tuned :-)

Crawford_CG 12 June, 2012 @ 22:24

I take it this gothic cathedral is a free apartment to start with?

Hey Crawford,
We are super excited to offer an Open House for the Gothic Cathedral. This is the first time we are running this program. This is a great opportunity to test out the space. Enjoy!

my very first dog when I was a nipper was called Shiba, she ‘went to live on a farm’ when I moved..yeh right Dad! I’ll have to pick that one up now, thanks :)

Any news on the x7 club and the dimond suits that are on US home?

At the moment x7 Club will not be available in the EU but in the meantime there are lots of other amazing spaces in the pipeline that is going to come out. Stay turned for more information.

Will look into the Diamond Suits.

Cool more boring home stuff I’ll never look at thanks Sony.

MIDNIGHT-QUEEN25 13 June, 2012 @ 07:51

i have been on my US account and seen the gothic cathederal and there’s nothing really there there’s no games there and it’s just a place to talk and it is really boring from my opinion they need to bring a new place what US hasn’t got yet


any chance me helgast helmet can be fixed its only availble on a female when i bought the outfit for male.

joshstevens 13 June, 2012 @ 10:30

When is this going to be back on then?

hiya Josh,

Home is up and running! Come and play!

@2, bout the EUFA not being on Home, i think it’s more of a problem from the side of Home Team, i think their advertising Team isnt doing a very good job at promoting Home to companies. I’m 100% sure the football leagues will do more on Home if there was somethign done from the Home Team. It’s really not that hard to bring out a Football space. They have a template for Home shirts, they’ve been using the same template for years now for all the Movie Promo Shirts.

So yeah….really not that hard

SirJake_Brookes 13 June, 2012 @ 14:52

X7 club is for ps + members only so really not for us. @ Zoba. open houses is great idea for UK & Eu server & will desert heaven clubhouse becoming soon to us. I really miss going there. update is good so I’ll give it Royal seal of approval. Yours Faithfully HRH Crown Prince Jake of Sodium.

Thanks SirJake,

There are more spaces coming that the UK and EU will have access to and be able to play around in. It is some exciting times. More information is coming.

Take care!

Atomic_robot77 13 June, 2012 @ 21:20

Home has come a long since i last logged in.

Hey Atomic,

Yes, Home has come a long way. It is constantly evolving and will continue to change. This is large scale on-going collaborative project that is made to facilitate a socail gaming environment and made with the continued input of Home Community members.


Any news on the x7 club?

Hey there Eelboy,

As I mentioned above, at the moment x7 Club will not be available in the EU but in the meantime there are lots of other amazing spaces in the pipeline that is going to come out. Stay turned for more information.

Whats the point of asking a question on here? I could ask a question for a month + & never get a answer, Why buy home content then when they take for eva to reply to the same question, Clearly home team/sony dont care about questions or advise & its stupid that home regions are different. See yas never..


Sorry that you feel that way. Your thoughts and opinions are valuable and are taken into consideration. However there are a lot of feedback we get and like anything it takes time to get through everything. Please do keep sending in your comments and they will be answered in due time.


@DJrya, the problem isnt with the ppl who work at Sony, it’s the whole system of how they do Home Business. In 6mnths time Home will be 3 years old, but there’s STILL problems from April 2010 on the forums that hasnt been sorted, like the Helgast stuff. You can go & look, the Mods posted then that the Home Dev’s were looking into it.

2 YEARS LATER…….has it been fixed?


It’s all just *facepalm* moments.

Complaining really doesnt help. Not here or anywhere.

Sony as a company is just to big. To many ppl doing,….i dont know what. It needs a complete restructuring. (thats my opinion & should not be taken as the opinion of SEN staff, users or any publishers)
