PlayStation Home update: FREE Boutique Apartment

Find out what’s new in Home Square this week

Hello everybody and welcome to another PlayStation Home update. This week we have a FREE modular Boutique apartment from nDreams, Home Tycoon receives a Community Feature Update, JAM Games’ release their final Tour Bus, and much more. Here’s a summary of these and other top updates which will go live after Wednesday’s maintenance.

Boutique Apartment

nDreams are releasing a FREE apartment for visitors of Aurora and Home Square! The Boutique Apartment is the perfect place for the suave and sexy socialites of PlayStation Home to hang out and have fun.
The free apartment gives you access to the lobby and the library and you can expand your apartment by purchasing the extra rooms: bathroom, bedroom, kitchen, lounge and terrace. Unlock all rooms or purchase the clubhouse to receive a set of luxurious reward items!

Aurora 1.85

As well as Aurora having a shiny new look, the level cap has been increased to 150 which means new rewards, including a brand new apartment! There are also two new awards to be won in the Trap-O-Matic mini-game. So what are you waiting for? Dive into Aurora 1.85, earn rewards, and have some fun!

Home Tycoon

Home Tycoon gets a FREE upgrade this week with the new Community Feature Update! This fan-requested update brings more VIP perks, new features, and gameplay improvements — including a new VIP Pack with the Gold Car Companion and a permanent boost to 60 maximum Workers. Play for free at the Home Tycoon Train Station!


GZ Gift is even more packed full of presents with the addition of over 50 new items you can send to your friends! Pet cats, wrist watches, and even triple scoop ice cream…there’s something for everyone!
In addition, Gift Coins have been added to GZ Gift, which can be used in place of GZ Tickets to purchase gifts. Send a friend some Gift Coins, and they can share the wealth by sending out even more gifts to their friends! Maybe they’ll even send you something as a thank you…

JAM Games

This week JAM Games brings you their final tour bus. Show them you’ve reached the top and flaunt your celebrity style as if through rose tinted spectacles! This tour bus truly is a Pink Paradise! Which Tour Bus suits you best? The choice is yours; just remember ‘What Goes On Tour…. Stays On Tour!’


This week’s release also brings you the ‘Animal Fridges’ to the Living collection – fun, cute, and stylish to add that quirky finishing touch to any kitchen space. More styles to come in the next few weeks! Remember – Fashion passes, style remains, LIVING is the key!


Figment has a day at the races in mind with tailcoats for the gentlemen and A-Line dresses paired with statement hats for the ladies.

To fulfil your inner shopaholic’s needs, Lockwood’s other big ranges, Secrets and Figment, will help you turn heads without working up a sweat. Secrets has a selection of new form-fitting bodycon dresses that are on the scale from sleek to wowza!


This week Kovok gets animal again with another set of locomotion items – the Ostrich and the Pig! Traveling at maximum speed has never been so fun!


The cutest clothing collection has arrived to PlayStation Home with Kawaii! Pop and Asian inspired outfits from Kovok will make you feel like a living doll!



The hi-low hem trend takes on an edgier form with the dramatic look of the You’re Smitten dress. It’s a hot mix of emotions for the Indigo Luv dress with its 90s baby doll silhouette and 60s tie-dye print. You’ll agree, this look is fresh and futuristic.


Split Ends and 3D Printer


The ladies can rock out with the Riot or cute it up with the Sleek Pixie. For men, slick it up Tunnel Snake style with the Slick Buzz, or let it grow out with Scruffy. Variations of these hairstyles are available from the 3D Printer, along with the Sad Head and Grin Outfit plus a range of Strut leggings.

Half Price Hot Deals

Things are getting mythical this week with the Centaurs and Evil Shadows and Centaurs making their way into the Sale. Check out the Sales icon in the VEEMEE store each week for great deals; all AT LEAST 50% off!

Don’t forget PS Home will briefly be offline from 8.00am BST on Wednesday 16th July for routine maintenance. That’s all for now, see you in PlayStation Home!

Hi Jorge197

You would need to see the SCEA post or discuss with a SCEA representative for confirmation about this but as far as I am aware yes you should be.


We’d love to check the SCEA post, Andy. Unfortunately, there hasn’t been an SCEA PlayStation.Blog post about Home since November 20, 2013.

Do you know an SCEA representative that we can discuss it with? :)

Andy Stewart 17 July, 2014 @ 17:05

Oh I am sorry to hear that, sorry I don’t know but I will see if I can find out for you guys, have you tried the US forums?

A post on a ps home blog no one posted on the story last week is home still going? I thought it had been shut down lol.

paula13pain4you 15 July, 2014 @ 21:41

There is a thread about this on the PlayStation Home Forums.

Ow god just let home die and use the servers for stability of psn or something.


I think no one is posting because no one is listening. We need something to drive the excitement in home. An event would be nice. New stuff, slogging tasks, apartments and dances aren’t cutting it anymore. On the bright side I’m saving money.

Andy Stewart 16 July, 2014 @ 13:58

We are always listening/reading :D

We have had events recently like the ‘May the 4th be with you’ meet up and we have more being planned with our MVPs to come soon so watch this space and check the forums.


Ok, good, listening then lol. By this time in. 2013 we had 8 new public spaces, 1 dedicated game space and 2 event spaces released, not including Christmas 2012. Along side any MVP and user generated events of course. This year has been a bit leaner so far. I don’t mind buying stuff if there’s something new to do. Next main event is gamescom in August is there going to be an event in home for it?

Andy Stewart 17 July, 2014 @ 17:07

Sadly most of the content you are mentioning came from 3rd parties so it will be up to them if they want to continue doing this. As for GamesCom, watch this space and hopefully we will have some good news for you soon but I can’t confirm at this stage.

what’s the point of posting a comment if no one at Sony bothers to read it!

Andy Stewart 16 July, 2014 @ 13:58

We do read your comments


In the hope someone hears and listens. And of course acts.

Andy Stewart 17 July, 2014 @ 17:09

We do try our best but we can’t always act on every request which I hope you guys can sympathies with.

Hi again, and again and again… since we didn’t get Quest for Greatness 2, what will we get instead? It’s been a truckload of months now :/

Andy Stewart 16 July, 2014 @ 14:53

Hi Lance_87

Good hear from you again dude, check the forums all details are on there.
