PlayStation Home: Simply Marvelous

PlayStation Home will be offline from 8AM BST on Wednesday 27th June for routine maintenance. Here is what to expect after the update…

If you missed them during E3, don’t miss Discobot XT6000 and the Nebulon Storage Backpack from Hellfire Games, available in Novus Prime today! Create an instant dance party anywhere in Home with the Discobot XT6000 outfit, complete with holographic dance floor projection, detachable disco ball head, 4 custom animations, and laser light show – and show off your Nebulon stash and get a permanent 10% in-game bonus with the futuristic Nebulon Storage Backpack for Novus Prime!

Next up, Granzella Can’t Wait for Summer!

Their latest set is a spring-leaf green that shines lushly on a white background. It features two styles for both men and women. For women, two styles are available in both a bikini top and bottom combination and also in one piece swimsuits. A total of 8 bracelets and anklets are also offered.

For men, there are two types of pants and neck towels, and a total of five bracelets and anklets.
This set is great value for money. The wait is over, it’s time to hit the beach in a sparkling new swimsuit!

Heavy Water brings a new collection of tattoos to Home under the Heavy Ink brand. Visit the PlayStation Home Shopping Centre where you can purchase these tattoos for your avatar, male or female, light, dark or medium skin tones! The designs come in Obsidian and Ivory, so pick the colour that works best for you or buy both colours and mix and match! These tattoos are meant to be worn with your existing clothing (although some clothing items are made differently so clipping might occur – preview them in Threads just to be safe). If you don’t have clothing that works, Heavy Water has provided Bare Canvas torsos free of charge for male and females to proudly display your ink!

New styles will come to PlayStation Home next week, so save up and get more ink next week! Stay in the loop by going to to see what’s in development or follow @heavyh2o on Twitter: Comments, ideas or requests? Drop them an email at

T-shirts? If there were Spider-Man and Deadpool costumes I’d have probably snapped them up in a second. But t-shirts?

Thanks for your feedback. It will be shared. Stay tuned to find out about more new content coming to Home.

yorkypud1976 26 June, 2012 @ 17:57

agree with #1 theres too many t shirts in home, costumes for marvel and yes id definately buy but t shirts no thanks!

residentSteve 26 June, 2012 @ 17:59

Home never understood the point of it.

Hey ResidentSteve,
The point of Home is to be a social gaming platform that caters to a diverse range of gamers – from the causal to the hardcore – to give them a space meet, chat, share and play together. Just wondering if you have been in Home lately? Home has definitely developed and keeps on evolving. There are new games, content and interactive, multi-player and social elements being added all the time. Have another poke around. Perhaps you will find something worthwhile in Home.


Neither have the people developing it, but it looks like they’re going to settle for turning it into a massive strip mall for vanity items with no functional use.

It’s been a while since I’ve seen updates that contained new spaces or interesting features that were not just another free to play honey trap from a third-party company. Wasted potential.

CoolRichy008UK 26 June, 2012 @ 18:43

1 2 3 4 more t shirts

COME ON SONY T SHIRTS REALLY that just proves sony are loozing more money

if i ran ps3 home id make all marval costumes not stupisd lazy assed t shirts

OMFG… Home still printing money for SCE, as long as theres a silly lot buyng this crap so late in the PS3 cycle.


Sad lot dancing in bakinis on a virtual beach……. REALLY?! wow!

Notice “No man’s land” is absent again this week, is this coming to EU anytime soon?

Hiya Grothraw,

‘No Man’s Land’ is coming to SCEE. Have no fear. Keep checking the Blog and the Forums to stay up-to-date.


@#7 It actually doesn’t matter much (to me) as I’ve jumped to NA Home to try it out and find absolutely nothing knew. It’s a “copy” of the uncharted game but with different scenarios, characters and weapons. It keeps lacking free movements, it’s point+press+go -.-

Anyway, another below weak update this week introducing… wait for it…. just a bit more… more virtual stuff to buy, tada! This will keep going on and on because there’s always silly people buying them stuff. That’s also why they don’t even bother to do better things, they know people will buy lower ones.

”The wait is over, it’s time to hit the beach in a sparkling new swimsuit!”

Yeah, even when there is no Beach to explore and enjoy and all it is just a tiny small tropical island with no sand on it. Come on Granzella it least bring it back since there are MANY swimsuits EVEN Konami has ANIME version of girls in swimsuits. Have to have a personal space just to get on top of the roof in the tropical give me a break.

All I see from the updates is more personal spaces and that’s it and Konami has the Cathedral space but only short time. Could you it least release more public spaces to explore?

It’s not even a beach, it’s more like a tropical island than a beach.

hitman_stephen 26 June, 2012 @ 20:08

bahh if the new remote play allows the vita to go on home then i’l be all over it, not got enough time to sit at home, always about, so yeh, looking forward to the vita and ps3 combination, you may not even get me off of home if remote play works with it D:



Hey Davie, thanks for your input. As always it’s a great to hear from the community about what they like and want. This feedback will be shared.

i agree no more t shirts got nuff need marvel costume spiderman , xmen etc

What about bringing room x7 to europe?

CoolRichy008UK 26 June, 2012 @ 22:05


WE DONT WANT *****Y T SHIRTS WE WANT PROPPER MARVAL COSTUMES who ever came up with the marval t shirt idea for them right now

THE COMMUNITY HAS SPOKEN MAKE MARVAL COSTUMES TO BUY NOW if marval dont let you make them (Stuff marval just make them) WE WANT SPIDERMAN COSTUMES NOW

and for the last time PLAYSTATION HOME WILL NOT BE ON VITA it was designed for ps3 ONLY so to the next 1000000000000000000 thatsay we want ps home on vita ITS NOT GONNA HAPPEN!!!!


Any chance of an update to the PlayStation Plus Private members club as it has “Latest content 3-30 November 2010 & Coming Soon 1 December – 5 January” ????

A missed opportunity for SCEE to make PS+ relevant for Home users, not even any occasional discounts like we get with games.

Hey there Saberman,

Good to hear from you. There are developments in the works to add more to the PS+ Home user experience. Stay tuned for more information.

Great update, Keep up the good work. Im going to be checking out home tommoro night asap. :D

Heya DJrya,

So glad you like the update. Enjoy!!! :-)

CoolRichy008UK 26 June, 2012 @ 22:36


SONY DIDNT BOTHER TO ADD MARVAL COSTUMES now we know how tight them are they give NA the good stuff and yet again leave us with the crap

Richy, child, calm your mojo down. Egads the poor child is ganutting to the max, someone fetch the guerney with the restraints and wheel it into the soundproofed room so we can calm him with Marilyn Manson music …on repeat for four days(& nights).
But seriously procion the official Playstation Home bunny must, somewhatmore lethargically agree with the still echoing opinion of the bepadded richy, that we do get a little of the overkill on the tees in Home. I for one, for moi-même, seek a greater fecunditity on the availability of bunny costumes therein… There just are not enough of a selection for official Playstation Home bunnies such a moi to choose from *snifff sniff* I mean what other noise can a bunny make but *sniff*.

CoolRichy008UK 26 June, 2012 @ 23:07

i dont like Marilyn Manson music LMAO and if you want bunny costume go and get a real 1 :D


bring ps home to vita


coolrichy clam down you need to chill out

CoolRichy008UK 27 June, 2012 @ 10:16

i dont need todo NOTHING manuwhatever

people are angry cuz we get stupid marval t shirts and not costumes that just proves that sony spend more on NA ps home then EU home

& like i said if anyone dont like my opinyon tough is it hurting anyone NO il sya what i want about updates you lot say what you want and anyway i only read my comments and the updates



if you only read your own comments why did you read manutreble’s comment? dude you even worse than me on this blog lol :)

by thd way CoolRichy i cant wait fo ps home to come to ps vita :D


did you guys know CoolRichy008UK is a man? hes 32 years old.


@ DAVIE222

What’s that got to do with anything?

People will suspect he’s a child by the rants, spelling & comments. He has mentioned numerous times that he has learning difficulties & it shows.

Sometimes we need to give him a break but other times he needs to think before he types, as it hurts people & doesn’t do him any favours by being nasty… all! It must be hard & I can sort of understand, as one of my friends kids has Asperger Syndrome.

With all the research i’ve done i’m amazed that he’s still allowed to use the internet, especially social forums. His Father frequented this blog back in November stating that he will be monitored, but obviously it wasn’t his Father due to the comments that i’ve read since. Sometimes he can be really nice but other times unbearable.

I do see the good in people & hopefully with medication he can tone it down & take control.



learning difficulties? oh, i did not know that :(

im sorry coolrichy.

also Catkiller1 i have seen that coolrichy can be a nice friend as well but he deleted me because i said mait instdead of mate….but yeah like you said he has learning difficulties and i now know that, thanks for telling me.


i hear on the youtube app on ps vita you cant view peoples channels…thats a huge letdown.

” Davie. Good on you for saying that we need to give him a break(within limits)as a forgiving accepting nature can allow him to work his kinks out and get what he needs to say out there. The worst thing that can happen is what happened with the official erasure forum recently. Sadly that forum had whittled down to several old queens gurading the forum like a bridge and taking residence up underneath said bridge in order to troll anyone they considered new, each other and this started reflecting bladly on the band.They caused folk to not want to post nor even visit the site and they got into the habit and daily mindset of being awful to all and sundry. EIS decided to shut the whole forum down because of just a few peoples behaviour. I’d hate to see that happen here.


@ procion

ummmmm I said to give him a break lol!

nice update but when will eu get the assassin creed 3 avatars the usa have had them for a few week now and on home can we have the predator costume back i missed it first time and would like it

wwechelseafan 29 June, 2012 @ 10:13
