PlayStation Home Update: Do The Locomotion

PlayStation Home will briefly be offline from 8.00am BST on Wednesday 26th September for routine maintenance. Here’s what to expect after the update…

With the Home 1.7 update comes the ability to equip inventory items that affect the way that your avatar moves. The very first set of Locomotion items available in Home, brought to you by nDreams are available for use on your avatar regardless of what outfit you are wearing. The first set includes:

    • Super Dash – Which will allow your avatar to run faster than normal.
    • Zen Flight – You will no longer walk or run, you will float in the air in the lotus position. You can also travel faster than the normal run.
    • Super Flight – Majestically fly through the air like a super hero at different speeds.
    • Ninja Run – Your run animation will become a slick ninja run and can change into a Ninja Sprint.
    • Inferno Hero – A fantastic fire will swarm around your avatar and you can fly through the air surrounded by flames.
    • Ice Hero – You can ride the ice coming from your hand and move quickly through whichever space you are in.
    • Skateboards – With four different styles you can skate around Home and go quicker than you have ever been able to before. These also come with an ‘Ollie’ emote animation.

    Equip these items in your inventory and see what effect they have. When running forward hold the square button to change the way your avatar moves.

    You can pick up any of the new Locomotion items by visiting the nDreams store or any shop within Aurora. Speaking of Aurora, rumour has it that some details surrounding the next update will be available via the nDreams newsletter which you can sign up for here

    There are new companions this week from Lockwood’s captive breeding program – Sammy the Skunk is cute, fluffy and friendly, but don’t annoy him, ‘cos he’ll kick up a stink! Bartholomew’s a playful little chap who sometimes forgets he’s a bear and tries to walk like a person. Wulfred enjoys human company, but sometimes he misses life with the pack and howls to make sure he doesn’t lose touch with his wolf brothers.

    Great job to Ndreams and Granzella for releasing decent content must say but I have a question Zoba, there is been issues with Gz’s Southern Island’s load screen, when I enter there all I can see is a blank white screen and there’s a similar issue happened with the Action space but with loading bar fully loaded but won’t load the scene. Any chance you can look into that.

    Also regarding EOD TV’s LOOT released. When will it decent video content on Crackle or are we stuck with the one’s we got now? Also when will the infamous 411 error get fixed? Thanks.

    Hey Supersmith,

    Yup the Home Team and Granzella are aware of the load screen issue. This has to do with the way the scene is coded, which at the moment cannot work any other way. I suggest if the loading screen is taking to long simply try going to your menu bar and going into wardrobe or something then relocate back to the Granzella space.

    EOD LOOT TVs are being worked on and updated. More details are to come.

    Will find out what’s the status on the 411 error.

    Hope that helps.

    Ndreams has just pulled off a great way to get loads of cash :P Im going to have to grab the fast running motion. All depends on the price tho. Lockwood black fox pets looks nice as well. p.s Great update!

    Hi! I for a week already play in the demo Double Dragon Neon bought for the money! the Russian support does not respond, what do I do? Why there are no official statements on the matter? What compensation of damage will I get? how Much I have to wait?

    Hi DuMapa,

    Thanks for writing in but I am not exactly sure what the issue is. This is post is about Home related content. As far as I know Double Dragon Neon is not related to Home. If have been charged for something that you shouldn’t have been please feel free to contact Customer Service.

    It’s going to be mad seeing all the running/flying/floating/skateboarding avatars tomorrow – great update! :D

    It’s a good update, but by the look of it only Wulfred will be mine <3 :)
    I guess since the 'Locomotion' items are in Inventory we can't use Companions?! Would be a shame and needs to be done different.

    But please bring me some Inline skates soon, okay? :D
