Memories of Sony's madcap virtual world
There's a big 'To Let' sign in the Home Plaza today, and the remnants of makeshift toilet paper streamers scattered about its tufts of unkempt grass. Hours earlier, avatars congregated to wish the virtual world farewell, with one last cabbage patch dance under silky blue skies. Now, the weather is moody, and...
Like that final episode of Brookside where Jimmy Corkhill departs the boarded up Merseyside estate for his new life as the lord of a stately home, PlayStation Home has closed its doors for the last time. The service shut down officially at 08:02AM BST this morning according to Eurogamer.net. The servers were packed as congregations...
Sony is locking the front door on PlayStation Home — and swallowing the key. The divisive virtual world, which has been in beta since the hazy days of 2008, will officially close on 31st March, 2015 in Europe. At the time of typing, there's no official word on the future of the platform in North America, but given that this was a...
May still be worth the trip, though
Some may argue that you deserve a Platinum Trophy for sitting through PlayStation Home’s protracted patching procedure, but the virtual world will sadly lack the most prestigious of pots. As previously teased, a brand new update for Sony’s online service has deployed today, and it includes 13 tasty trinkets...
No impressive cabinets, though
When former PlayStation executive Phil Harrison revealed PlayStation Home at GDC many moons ago, one of the big features announced was a virtual Trophy cabinet that would allow you to inspect your dusty digital trinkets in a three-dimensional hallway. Much like many of the platform holder’s promises at the time, it...
Swigging a pretend pint on PS2
Love it or loathe it, PlayStation Home is one of the most ambitious products that Sony has ever produced. The online virtual world launched in late 2008, after being revealed by former Worldwide Studios president Phil Harrison at GDC 2007. But its roots date back much further than that, as the basis of the idea was...
Ceasing support in September
If you’re a proponent of digital avatar dancing you may want to apply a moody expression to your PlayStation Home protagonist, as Sony has announced that it’s to stop updating the virtual world in Japan from September. While you’ll still be able to access the online application for the time being, there’ll be...
Tons of other cool goodies up for grabs
Not everyone’s lucky enough to attend E3 in Los Angeles – but PlayStation Home annually offers the next best thing. Sure, the real convention may not be filled with shirtless avatars performing the running man in front of favourably proportioned polygonal ladies, but you’re going to want to visit this...
Dancing into the next generation
The word ‘social’ cropped up a lot during Sony’s big PlayStation 4 coming out party late last month, but we’re still yet to learn how PlayStation Home will be integrated into the next generation platform – if, indeed, it will be incorporated at all. The virtual world was Sony’s big bet on casual gaming...
Retro games on the go
As spotted late last year, a new application is heading to the PlayStation Vita that will allow you to take your PlayStation Home arcade cabinets out and about with you. The free download – set to release in both Europe and North America this week – features full cross-buy compatibility, meaning that any titles you’ve...
A new application that allows you to play PlayStation Home mini-games on the PlayStation Vita has been spotted in the European PlayStation Store. The free download – discovered by PS Vita Round Up – features playable versions of WipEout 2D, Ice Breaker, and Scribble Shooter. The latter is represented in demo form, but the full...
West Bromwich Albion fans will be eager to learn a little more about PlayStation Home's latest arcade cabinet. The release – simplistically entitled A Game About Bouncing – is the brainchild of Dyad developer Shawn McGrath. There's no price attached to the premium mini-game just yet, but we doubt it'll break the bank. Purchasing...
PlayStation Home is on a bit of a winning streak at the moment. Within the span of just four weeks the virtual world has seen the arrival of management simulator Home Tycoon and third-person shooter Uproar. This week sees yet another full game added to the social platform, in the form of tower defence title Fight Until Blood and Ruin...
PlayStation Home just keeps getting better. Hot on the heels of Hellfire’s impressive business management simulation Home Tycoon, developer Lockwood has released Uproar – a fully-featured free-to-play third-person shooter with a gang theme. Upon loading the game for the first time, you’ll need to choose between two opposing...
Bricks and mortar
If you haven’t set foot in PlayStation Home since the virtual world’s initial roll-out, you may be surprised by the current state of the social platform. The free-to-play destination has erupted with activity over the past 12 months, prompting a location that’s both bursting with content and brimming with life. The catalyst...
No place quite like Home
PlayStation Home has grown exponentially over the past six months with the release of innovative free-to-play experiences like Mercia: Fractured Realms and Bootleggers ’29 – but Home Tycoon developer Hellfire Games believes there’s still plenty of potential for the social platform to expand. “You only need to glance...
Hardhats at the ready
Hellfire Games has finished building its tantalising free-to-play construction simulator Home Tycoon. According to a newsletter from the developer, the game is set to launch in Europe and North America this week. You’ll be able to access it through PlayStation Home from 3rd October. For those out of the loop, Home Tycoon...
Chances are the majority of you weren’t born when the original Intellivision released – but games such as Astrosmash and Shark! Shark! have left an indelible impression on the modern games industry. Now, courtesy of PlayStation Home, you’ll be able to play a handful of these classics lovingly re-mastered in HD. “We kept the basic...
PlayStation Home has had its fair share of ambitious content lately – but Home Tycoon looks like a real step above. The free-to-play city building game promises a strategic business simulation with a twist. Indeed, in addition to growing and nurturing your own hometown from a top-down perspective, you’ll also be able to explore...
Mercia: Fractured Realms is set to travel into PlayStation Home this week in North America. The ambitious endeavour aims to deliver a full-scale free-to-play role playing game within the virtual world. We’ve heard some pretty great things about this, so you might want to go and check it out. The game can be played in single-player or...
If you’re not lucky enough to be soaking up the festive atmosphere in Cologne this week, Sony has concocted a novel solution. The platform holder has announced that it is bringing the excitement of GamesCom to PlayStation Home – and everyone’s invited. In addition to live streaming the PlayStation press conference in the Home...
Fit for a king
We’ve all dreamed of living in an enormous penthouse kitted out with tennis courts and swimming pools – trouble is, few of us will ever come close to affording one. Thankfully, things aren't quite as expensive in the digital world. Sony has announced a new application for PlayStation Home named Blueprint that will allow you to...
Out this week
PlayStation Home may have been an empty shell of potential when it launched all the way back in 2008, but it’s gone from strength to strength in the years since. No Man’s Land is a perfect example of that evolution – it’s a fully featured third-person shooter set within Sony’s virtual world. The multiplayer title –...
Big business, big fun
Tucked away in the upstairs section of the PlayStation Home E3 booth is an area dedicated to the spaces coming soon to Sony’s virtual world. One of the new activities featured is Home Tycoon, a simulation title in development at Hellfire Games. The preview doesn’t reveal much about the game, but it does hint at some...
Splash of paint
Sony’s divisive virtual world PlayStation Home is set to get a few upgrades this week. Version 1.65 brings with it a new user interface and speed improvements – making it even easier to stalk avatars wearing nothing but swimwear. Tweaks include a new menu screen, personal voice chat and more intelligent use of furniture slots...
Home from home
PlayStation Home really has come a long way since it launched back in 2008. What originally started life as an overhyped chatroom has blossomed into a social gaming network, and that transition is emphasised by today’s trio of new announcements. Starting today, Sony is plotting the release of three new exclusives in PlayStation's...
Total game integration
In order to promote the impending release of Street Fighter X Tekken on PlayStation 3, Sony’s announced a new tie-in event for PlayStation Home which will allow you to duke it out beat ‘em up style as your own custom avatars. If you complete 10 challenges in the Home exclusive space, you’ll unlock special Ryu and Kazuya...
Be known, valued reader, that some facets of the PlayStation Store will be unavailable this coming Thursday, February 2nd
As usual, the whole "scheduled maintenance" notice seems a bit overboard — as we've never had a problem connecting and playing games online during these periods of "supposed downtime". But it's still worth...
Fancy watching some free movies and TV shows with your buddies in PlayStation Home? Sony's got you covered
A new partnership with Crackle will allow you to stream movies such as Resident Evil and Starship Troopers directly into the virtual world. Sadly, the feature's only available for North American residents. Don't purchase any popcorn just yet,...
If you're one of those people that tried PlayStation Home back in the hazy days of 2008, danced around in the main plaza and then decided to devote the next three years of your life to ragging on the social world in forums and blog comments -- then you're about to get a shock
PlayStation Home has been going through a subtle transformation for a good...
Blimey, PlayStation Home director Jack Buser wasn't messing about when he said the virtual world's relaunch was coming soon
It's coming tomorrow. "We are launching a new experience for PlayStation Home that will feature a revamped Home Square and a new 'districts' design that will help you find games, people and places that fit your favourite game genre," explained Sony online marketing..
We've always seen the potential in PlayStation Home as a gaming platform, and its great to see Sony finally deliver on that
In a new video posted on the PlayStation Blog, excitable director Jack Buser has offered a tour of the new features we can expect in the rebooted virtual world. Buser's really keen to emphasise Home's new focus on games,...
We'd just like to spend a few moments to thank James Gallagher of the PlayStation Blog
Sarcastically, of course. His latest PlayStation Home update, entitled "What Goes Bump In The Night", has totally got us listening to the AllStars on loop. So thanks for that. Thanks a lot. Anyway. Lots of bits-and-bobs in PlayStation Home this week. New...
Sony's really starting to pack PlayStation Home with promotional mini-games
Already this year we've had supplementary experiences for Resistance 3 and Dead Island, and now Naughty Dog's Uncharted 3 is about to receive its own space in Sony's social world. A new mini-game set in the "sun-baked streets of Yemen" challenges you to step into the shoes of Nathan Drake and "explore your..
As PlayStation Home continues its transition into a gaming platform, director Jack Buser has stated that he believes the social network is the "easiest point of entry" for budding PlayStation Network developers
Speaking with Shacknews, Buser commented that a "lot of developers" start in PlayStation Home. Home is all scripting (LUA), and...
Earlier in the week Deep Silver announced a PlayStation Move enabled sports mini-game compilation called Winter Stars
The news was met with little fanfare, but I couldn't help but feel a flutter of anticipation. Thing is, I adore games packed with variety. I love the idea of being able to play around with different mechanics, jumping from one mini-game to another. Even though compilation packages..
No, the much publicised PlayStation Home reboot is not launching tomorrow
But the platform's still getting a major update as it jumps to version 1.55. New features include updates to the Wardrobe function, as well as a new Furniture browser that makes sifting through digital goods as straight-forward as an Ikea catalogue. Hit the jump for the full...
We've been mulling over the possibility of a free-to-play PlayStation Home first-person shooter in our heads for months now
We concluded that some kind of paintball game would make the most sense. But Sony's gone further, announcing Bootleggers, a full-on free-to-play first-person shooter set within the PlayStation Home universe. Woah. Bootleggers...
Sony intends to transform PlayStation Home into "the biggest and best social gaming service on any console", the platform holder has said in a new post on the European arm of the PlayStation Blog
We already know that Sony's got a full reboot for the series in the works, but SCEE's Darren Cairns has given a little more indication as to what we can...
Lockwood's announced that it's adding a new track to its popular PlayStation Home free-to-play racer, Sodium 2
The Nemesis update includes a new track entitled Wasteland Spires, which is set within an "ethically questionable and borderline illegal mining operation on the exoplanet Iridos". A reverse version of the track will also be made...
Earlier today we reported that Sony is looking to completely redefine PlayStation Home as a social gaming platform in the Fall
New genre specific districts will be complimented by a new 'Hub' system — the entrance into PlayStation Home's new world. The aim is to make Sony's digital platform less of a sophisticated chat-room, and more of a...
We've been saying it for years
In fact, we feel like we were one of the few publications that even noticed. PlayStation Home has transitioned. It is less about interaction — though that's still a key component — and more about gaming. And that's absolutely the right direction for the service. But we've seen nothing yet. According to a series of...
GamesCom is usually an odd event
Despite housing announcements on par with E3 — the PlayStation 3 Slim for example — SCEE's never quite got round to setting up a reasonable live stream for the event. Perhaps finally realising that its fans do genuinely care about press conferences, the company has announced that its GamesCom presser will be...
As PlayStation Home continues to push into a more gaming oriented direction, Sony's announced that it's launching Scribble Shooter this week
Scribble Shooter is a retro sh'mup with hand drawn artwork and tons of unlockable items and rewards. In addition to Scribble Shooter, GAME's launching top-down arcade shooter Savage Cosmos in the Moonbase...
Fighting games are serious business, with many of the top competitors duking it out later this week in the annual Evo 2011 championships
Those unable to make the event in Las Vegas, will be able to watch the entire thing live via PlayStation Home. Players will be competing across a variety of fighting games, including Marvel vs. Capcom 3, Mortal Kombat, Tekken 6, BlazBlue: Continuum Shift II and..
What PlayStation Network outage? Seriously, perhaps it's just our blase reaction to the whole scenario, but do people still feel wronged by Sony's alleged inability to protect its data centre? Either way, SCEE is continuing its welcome back process by bunging you an approximated £65 worth of PlayStation Home gubbins
All the stuff is available from the plaza centre apart from Go Fish, a new..
Eagle-eyed readers may have noticed that Sony's tweaked the splash-image for PlayStation Home
Previously touted as a virtual world for PlayStation 3 owners, Sony now refers to the service as a "social gaming network". It's a transformation we've witnessed take place over the past several months, and it concludes with the implementation of...
The virtual E3 booth in PlayStation Home was a stroke of marketing genius
It directed you to watch eight of Sony's E3 trailers in order to receive virtual items and access the space's VIP area. Given the casual nature of PlayStation Home, we imagine there were people learning about Twisted Metal and Resistance 3 for the first time in the virtual...
Kazuma Kojo's new studio, Granzella, is hard at work on multiple projects according to Siliconera
The creative designer behind Steambot Chronicles and Disaster Report left Irem earlier in the year, citing a disconnect between fan expectations and management demands. To emphasise PlayStation Home's transformation into a social gaming platform, Kojo's...
As PlayStation Home continues to grow, Sony's announced that the virtual world has been experiencing record traffic over the past week
Of course, this is surprising because it comes on the back of the PlayStation Network outage. Were having record traffic in Home. The week we restored the service, we hit a new record in terms of weekly unique...
Well this is pretty neat: Sony's confirmed plans to stream its E3 keynote inside PlayStation Home
The action kicks off at 17:00PT on June 6th. In addition, similarly to last year, Sony will also be recreating its E3 booth within PlayStation Home. The virtual space — which will open at 12:00PT on June 7th — will allow players to take a tour of...
Sony's confirmed that PlayStation Home will be updated to version 1

If you wanted to turn your PlayStation Move controller into a plastic representation of a tennis racket, then SEGA's got your back
Posting on the PlayStation Blog, veteran SEGA executive producer, Mie Kumagai, has revealed a bunch of exclusive features for the PlayStation 3 version of the upcoming Virtua Tennis 4. So ok, the tennis rackets look terribly tacky, but the other features are pretty..
nDreams is launching its official PlayStation Home headquarters in Sony's digital world this week, revealing the fantastical floating land of Aurora
The world is packed with mini-games and secret bonus rewards to unlock. It also looks stunning. In addition to the Aurora island, Sony's announced a bunch of other goodies that are launching in Home...
Given the financial success of PlayStation Home, we think it would be a glaring oversight to not bring a similarly social experience to the NGP
Thankfully Sony is looking into the idea according to a report in the latest issue of Famitsu. Reporting on the upcoming major Home update, Famitsu mentions that Sony is considering some method of...
Sony's virtual world, PlayStation Home, could be getting a fresh lick of paint in the near future
That's according to some leaked concept art picked up by FourPlayerCoOp.com. The new screens demonstrate a cleaner, web 2.0 Home plaza, with a bigger emphasis on gaming made possible through the service's latest update. The art was apparently sent out...
As part of GDC this week, Sony took to the stage to announce a new milestone update for PlayStation Home
Version 1.50 brings with it a suite of new technology that's set to bring Sony's virtal home closer to the reality we've been dreaming of for some time — a real gaming portal. At present the best experience you can have in Home is by navigating the Midway carnival, Sodium and Novus Prime..
While the headline is certain to smack of desperation to those that took one look at PlayStation Home in its infancy and vowed never to return, we'd encourage PS3 owners to take another look at Sony's virtual world too
Just to clarify: we don't have any financial ties to Home. The thing is, it really has improved. Speaking with Develop, PlayStation Home's platform director, Peter Edward, has said..
We know you're still going to crawl back into your uninformed corner of the Internet and complain about how PlayStation Home is all about waiting in a line to play a game of pool, but that's just not the case anymore
PlayStation Home is awesome. It might not be your particular flavour of herbal tea, but we love the direction Sony's taking with the virtual world. Take this week's update: in North..
We've said it once, we'll say it again, and we'll continue to champion it until it sinks in: PlayStation Home is starting to get really, really exciting
It feels like Home's finally beginning to reach the potential it always aspired to. Spaces like Sodium One are what we won us over, so it's exciting to see more games implemented into Home's...
Unfortunately, most users who've visited PlayStation Home did so in the service's first month or so online
The original app was admittedly barren, and it's proving a challenge for Sony to convince users to give it another go. On the social network's second birthday, Sony's released an infographic detailing the service's growth. Most importantly, the infographic details the service's growth in..
PlayStation Home has been getting awesome behind the scenes for a while
Today Sony's launched a new client for the virtual world which brings with it new wardrobe support, voice chat and new character status settings. Are you happy, angry or sad? Now you'll be able to tell the world — or at least the small portion of the world using Home. Naturally the client fixes a bunch of bugs too, all of..
We love the big PlayStation Home updates
Mainly because Sony appears to finally be achieving their ambition with regards to the virtual world. And that's meta-games. Dragon's Green is the latest big game to be added to PlayStation Home. It's a mini-golf game with a fantasy twist, and it looks rather exciting. You'll need a ticket to get access to the full nine-hole course, but Sony's offering..
Let your virtual you have a look
There are already some pretty oddball ways to interact in PlayStation Home, but dressing up as a PlayStation Move controller to take part in team tasks probably takes the biscuit. Move's dedicated space opened up in PlayStation Home this week, letting you learn more about the peripheral through your PS3 – though,...
One of the big new additions to PlayStation Home is Oscar's Lobster Mania - a target-practice game that challenges you to toss lobsters into the mouth of a greedy mechanical dummy
The whole thing's a showpiece for how PlayStation Home's developed as a platform; not only does it look great, but it actually plays fairly well too.The contraption's...
You know what we've always thought PlayStation Home lacked: lobsters
Nah, not really, but now that we mention it... Thank goodness for this week's PlayStation Home update then (as detailed on the PlayStation Blog). From tomorrow, the service is set to introduce a new mini-game called "Oscar's Lobster Mania". You'll find the...
As far as weekly PlayStation updates go, they don't get much better than this week's Home update

Sony's confirmed that they'll be opening two new PlayStation Home event spaces this month
The first will launch this week and will be used to build up to the launch of Sony's upcoming motion controller, the PlayStation Move. Hilariously, the Move space is set to include "lots of PlayStation Move fun including a unique PS Move costume to wear...
The moment I realised the true potential of PlayStation Home was when I visited the Sodium One game space
I urge anyone who's still got negative impressions of Sony's virtual world to visit Lockwood's meta-game space and pick-up the gear you need to access the full game. Sodium One is a complete experience tied into the PlayStation Home engine —...
Sony's detailed a stonking PlayStation Home update on the PlayStation Blog this week
In aid of celebrating The Empire Strikes Back's 30th anniversary, PlayStation Home will be kitted out with a new public space based on the Mos Eisley Cantina. Star Wars nuts will know that the location first appeared in the original Star Wars movie, A New Hope...
This week wasn't supposed to be like this
I had a whole other series prepared for this week's There's No Place Like Home. I was going to do my best Laurence Llewelyn-Bowen and make-over my Personal Space. But in my quest for fancy neon lamps, this happened . As I clicked the shutter of my PlayStation Home camera, I was photobombed. Allow me to...
PlayStation Home has grown so much since it launched
We get it now. It's truly time for everyone to give it a second-chance. The service has found its identity, its beginning to fulfill its potential. And that potential is basically meta-games within a bigger world. You may have checked out our report on Home's Carnival space — a brilliant...
We've never been to a carnival
Not a real carnival like you see in the movies anyway. We've been to fairs, fetes and gatherings. But never a carnival. PlayStation Home's new Midway Carnival space is the kind you never see in real-life — its set at night time in a vast opening. There's a gothic feel to the place, it's almost like stepping into the...
The only people still hating on PlayStation Home these days are those who haven't given it a second chance
To be fair, a service shouldn't take two chances to win people over, but Home's vision has taken a while to realise. In our opinion, it's finally got there. While we understand why the service might not be for everyone, it's definitely come on...
British retailer GAME's PlayStation Home presence just got a bit more noticeable with the launch of its "Moon Base" space's second mini-game, Lunar Duel
The press release notes: "With the ultimate aim being to battle one-on-one against your opponent until their force field has been reduced to zero, Lunar Duel is a tense game where planning your...
As announced during Sony's E3 press conference, those unable to visit E3 for real were able to enjoy a meticulous recreation of the Sony booth via Sony's digital world, PlayStation Home
Turns out, that was quite a successful move. As much as people like to rag on Sony's totally free online service, it's got quite a following. In fact, according to...
Two years after the services launch, Sony's ambitious virtual world, Playstation Home, will finally leave beta
Veemee's Kirk Ewing - whose company working on the Audi space - confirmed as much at an event in Dundee last weekend. Home is due to come out of its beta-testing phase in December of this year. One in three PS3 owners use Home. There are 1.7 million repeat users each using Home..
TheSixthAxis are speculating that Playstation Home is about to get a new Home Square that will allow players from varying regions to meet up and communicate
Users of Home will know that as of right now you can only meet people from the same region in Sony's digital world. All rumour and speculation for now though, innit.
Playstation Home can often be a stange and unusual place
A typical day in Sony's virtual world will offer some extraordinary sights. Boys dressed as girls. Weird snowmen doing the robot in their underwear. People actually playing chess. If Lewis Carroll dreamt it all up, we reckon he'd be pretty proud. So when we heard Aliens vs Predator was coming...
Is Twisted Metal coming? Is Twisted Metal coming
.. Of course it's coming. What better hint could you have than an awesome Sweet Tooth costume rocking its way as part of this week's US Playstation Home update. There's a bollock load of stuff in this week's update, including inFamous and Resistance stuff, a music themed personal space, and more. Hit...
GAME, the UK's largest video game retailer, has announced they are to debut in Playstation Home - albeit on the moon. Yep, as we thought, it sound even weirder when typed. But it's true. The new Playstation Home space will feature video screens, billboards, Internet browser stations and free astronaut costumes. Could this be any better?...
Playstation Home's usership has grown to a whopping 12million, according to director Jack Buser
He announced the figure as part of a panel at last week's GDC, emphasising that the population of the virtual world had grown by 2million since December 2009. Sony also stated that these figures on based on "one-off" visits; according to their...
Sony's announced via the Playstation Blog that they will upgrade the Playstation Home client to version 1
35 tomorrow - binning the old World Map navigation tool and replacing it with a new interface. The Navigator will help you to find your friends and "Featured Spaces" much quicker, and looks to resemble Sony's XMB interface. Aswell as the client upgrade, there'll also be a host of..

Playstation Home is actually a pretty busy service considering
Sure, when the Home open beta launched what seems like an eternity ago, it was pretty sparse. But since then the space has grown quite a lot, still not quite delivering on its potential, but still giving users plenty to do. Sadly, according to Brand Week the service isn't quite attracting the level of advertising expected. That's..
.. Finally our wish has come true, as SCEA and LucasArts has announced a bunch of Star Wars themed content is coming to Playstation Home. In fact, you won't just be getting Star Wars content, LucasArts has also pledged Indiana Jones goodies via a new themed store front in the Home mall. There are a ton of screens over at Kotaku. Check them out if...
If you fancy rolling up to the Playstation Home bowling alley dressed as a Big Daddy then, erm, you can

As the first few seconds of your family's diabolical Christmas anthems CD declare: "it's chrrrrrrrrrristmas
" Well, actually, we're not totally happy with Christmas chatter until tomorrow, when it actually becomes, y'know, December - but still. Close enough. So we're totally happy passing on word that from December 10th Sony have a festive wonderland planned for Playstation Home. There'll be..
The executive director of Relentless Games, Andrew Eades, reckons Playstation Home is totally not for him
"Home doesn't appeal to me personally that much," he told VideoGamer.com. Bad news? Not quite, as Eades reckons Home is just starting to reach its potential. He reckons that Sony should focus on " the tools to allow people to...

Ever fancied a Ratchet & Clank: A Crack In Time themed four player tower defence or an Uncharted 2: Among Thieves two player tresure hunt? Thank goodness for Home then, eh, as 1Up report spaces for the both franchises will be launching in Playstation Home fairly soon
The Ratchet space will also allow you to travel through time, seeing various...
As far as we're concerned, our Playstation Home avatar has always been missing something
That's right, Wolverine claws. Rather awesomely, you can get these babies for free. All you'll need to do is sit through the 2 minute-long X-MEN Origins: Wolverine trailer and they'll pop up in your threads menu. Sweet, right?
Playstation Home had one of its biggest updates ever recently
The v1.3 update added lots of new content, including support for the Home camera amongst other things. Sadly, a small minority of users are reporting numerous errors since the update. Home manager Locust_Star says this could be down to a number of in-game objects, such as the Fat Princess...
