Home was a welcome surprise to horror game lovers when it launched on PC in 2012, and it delighted a whole new audience on mobile in 2013. Its simple controls and heavy reliance on rich sound and atmosphere, though, make it a great choice for a console system — so I’m happy to announce that Home is making the jump to PS4 and PS Vita this year!

Part of Home’s charm is that it’s entirely dependent on the player; it isn’t a march toward Ending A or Ending B — it’s the journey itself that is affected, as all your little choices subtly change how your character perceives the world around him. It’s a game that people love playing and then discussing afterward to compare notes and theories.

More importantly, it’s a game that’s meant to be played alone, in the darkest room (or alley, or barn, or deep, dank forest) you can find. On PS4, this means you can turn off the lights, crank that sound system and let the dread wash over you. If you’re extra brave, you can play the game on your Vita — somewhere scary, where no one will find you, and with a fat pair of headphones, of course.


Home received several updates after its original launch to add content and extra features, and everything that’s in the game is making the trek to Playstation. Will you find anything new in this version of Home? Folks who have played the game before know that you can never be sure what you’ll discover the next time you start it up; I’ll be back on the blog to discuss specifics as we tinker around a bit more.

Home is a game that depends on the players who play it. It doesn’t just talk to you; you’re part of the conversation. So the most exciting thing about seeing the game arrive on PS4 and PS Vita is going to be reading and hearing the myriad new stories, theories and comments that players will continue to contribute to the discussion surrounding the game.

I hope you’re as excited as I am to see Home in the hands of a whole new audience; I can’t wait for you to play it!

Oh, now this looks intriguing. A while back, Benjamin Rivers released Home, a side-scrolling horror experiment about building a character’s personality through moment-to-moment gameplay. Choices re-contextualized and even outright changed backstory elements, and the whole thing was just a really interesting way to tell a story. So then, what’s next for Rivers? Why, an equally experimental, er, dating sim, of course – but with fewer menus and more open exploration. Alone With You is about the lone survivor of a failed terraforming project and his/her AI companion. But there’s a sinister undercurrent creeping its skeletal fingers around the game’s mushy gushy heart. Trailer below.

Time to chuck out the PlayStation 4 and drop the Xbox One like a titan - PlayStation Home is getting trophies! The PS3-only social app will soon be updated to support PlayStation's brand of achievements, PlayStation Europe Community Manager Chris Owen said on Twitter.

Trophies for the hamster-loving, secret identity-laden platform will arrive in the 1.86 update, set to launch worldwide on March 12. Details on the retroactive trophies will be revealed on launch day. Despite continued updates to Sony's social hub world in North America and Europe, Owen says there's no news of PlayStation Home moving to new platforms like PS4.

PlayStation Home is a free virtual 3D social gaming platform that first launched in 2008. It features mini-games, microtransactions and ad space. It's a little like the MMO Second Life, but with fewer flying phalluses. [Image: Sony Computer Entertainment]

VEEMEE Acorn Meadows Park – Thanksgiving

It’s time to celebrate Thanksgiving with your friends and family in VEEMEE’s Thanksgiving Acorn Meadows Park. VEEMEE have got a handful of brand new attractions for park visitors to try out! Brace for impact and join your friends on the Bumper Cars. Like the Bikes, there are 6 to choose from and you can get each of them as a locomotion item as well. The pedal boats have had a makeover and now look like Thanksgiving Turkeys. Share a slice of Pumpkin Pie or a Turkey Drumstick with friends at the Thanksgiving food stalls and Re-enact the historic voyage of the Mayflower with the new Remote Controlled Mayflower. But what would Thanksgiving be without the dinner? Join your friends and family at the Big Thanksgiving Dinner Table and enjoy a 3 course meal. The table is situated just north of the lake.

There are also a number of Thanksgiving themed items for sale at the Pumpkin Patch. Turn into a Turkey with a very special Thanksgiving Animal Avatar. Try on the Pilgrim Costumes for men and women. Have some fun with the comical Riding Turkey locomotion. The Refined Thanksgiving Dining Table will let you host a Thanksgiving dinner of your own. VEEMEE would also like to introduce Acorn Meadows Park Day Passes. These passes can be purchased with Acorns and grant the owner 24 hours access to an activity. You can also get a Multi Pass which gives you access to most of the activities in the Park. Finally, if you use the Relocator in The Hub and get a special reward.

Lockwood Abbey Hill Cottage

It is a truth, universally acknowledged, that a Home user in possession of a PSN card, must be in want of a cottage. Fear not, gentle Home users, for Lockwood has a charming estate ideally suited to your rural sensibilities. Abbey Hill cottage unites the blessings of existence within its humble stone walls. Standing in beautiful gardens, numerous rewards are available, allowing you to furnish your new residence in the manner of a perfect country idyll.

If you are to be Lord or Lady of all you survey, then appropriate attire is a must. Regency clothing and hairstyles will ensure you are invited to every ball, piano recital and grand banquet. Cut a dash in a tailcoat and top hat, or dance the night away in an empire line dress with a ribbon sash and matching frilled gloves.

If you’re more accustomed to outdoor pursuits, an English Setter is the ideal dog to follow faithfully at your heels, or perhaps a gambolling lamb to add a sense of spring-like joy to the lush countryside surroundings.

Move into Abbey Hill Cottage and experience the warmest gratitude towards the persons who, by bringing you into PlayStation Home, united you with this fine accommodation.

Lockwood Update

Two very different Lockwood collections see an update this week, with Figment looking to the past to expand its clothing and furniture ranges, and Whimsy Hollow launching new colours of Whimsies and tails inspired by the seasons.

Figment has created a modular kitchen that would look at home in any of the Dream Universe personal spaces. From the gas hob to the cupboards and shelving, every section is designed to be positioned in a variety of places, allowing you to fully customise the perfect kitchen for you.

The clothing has a similar aesthetic to the kitchen – clean modern lines drawing on classic styles. The dress provides a flawless day to evening look, easily made more formal with the addition of gloves. The suit offers the same versatility, switching from business to casual with the removal of the fedora and trench coat.

The Whimsies of Whimsy Hollow are such friendly little creatures, they always have room in their homes and their hearts for more Whimsies and Whimsy-tailed friends. Can you show the same generosity of spirit?

If you’re looking for something even more magical than a Whimsy, you can’t go far wrong with a wizard outfit, available in two colours. More luxury gifts added to the Gift Machine too!

Lockwood Prehistoric Valley

When museum curator Anton Lindles received a crate containing a model mammoth for her latest exhibition, he got way more than he bargained for. Not only was the mammoth alive, the crate contained a dimensional portal to a lush Prehistoric Valley populated by cave people and dinosaurs! Get your crate from Lockwood and see what surprises await.

If the chance of a savage Sabre tooth or trampling T-Rex sounds too risky, you can always just opt for some Stone Age fashions, as it seems those cave folk really knew their way around a needle and thread.

The 3rd installment of the exciting new Element clothes and skateboard locomotions launch this week.

Zombies never sleep, so it’s no wonder that their parties tend to last indefinitely! That’s no excuse to serve bland snacks that suck the life from your taste buds, however. Stage Two of Totino’s “Snackterlife Challenge” mini-game is available today. The party has moved outside, but your goal remains the same — grab the Totino’s Bold Rolls before your fellow party zombies to earn your rightful place on the leaderboards…as well as a cool Halloween “zombie mask” for your avatar.

Granzella Mononoke Race, Lancers and Autumn Costume
Can you escape from the Ushi-oni? Great Edo of Nippon’s Underground Mononoke Race is here! Deep beneath the streets of Great Edo lies a mysterious cavern. Those who carelessly enter, beware! The Ushi-oni appears! Will you make it back to the surface and live to see the light of day once more?!

Wielding a massive sword and shield, Granzella’s all new Lancer class is ready to overwhelm the opposition! Clad in plate armor, the Lancer holds steady, guarding against his enemy’s attacks until he finds a gap…and strikes! The Lancer’s strength is a perfect match for the Great Blue Centipede now marching through Edo. When the centipede opens his mouth to breath fire, attack the red core inside! The Armor 3-piece Set comes with plate armor, gauntlets, and solleret, the armored shoes of a knight. The women’s Armor Set includes bikini style plate armor, an interesting choice for battle, but with an irresistible allure.


This stylish outfit has arrived just in time for autumn. For women, this set features sunglasses, a jacket with scarf, a pencil skirt with or without stockings, and high heels. For men, the set includes sunglasses, a jacket with scarf, chino pants, and arabesque-pattern shoes. Also available are the Center Parted Long Hairstyle for women and the Swept-back Hairstyle for men.

This week VEEMEE releases the third selection of MorphMasks. Another collection of colored and patterned masks for both men and women. With Halloween a little under a month away, masks such as Alien and Killer Clown would go great with any costume ideas you might have!

Complete the look with a jeweled cane or the family violin case; we also have a couple of furniture items for you too!

Lockwood Salopette Dungarees

Slowly but surely, Lockwood have been revisiting all their most popular classics and giving them a fresh new look. And Lockwood wouldn’t be Lockwood without Sodium, so it’s only fair that Sodium’s hugely popular salopette dungarees are the latest wardrobe staple to get a revamp.

Choose from zesty yellow, dramatic red, eye-popping blue or cool white. Pick up a brand new color (or four) today!


Lockwood Victoriana Gothic Furniture

Whether it’s gangsta rap squids, or fashion pirate bears, Delirious Squid likes to do things a little differently. They could have made the ‘Magick’ store variations of their popular Gift Machine Gothic Furniture range purple, or deep red. There is some purple in there, it’s true, but as an entire colour scheme? That would be too obvious for Delirious Squid. Instead, they’ve trailed their tentacles over the entire set, making key pieces white and silver, without losing any of the Victoriana Gothic appeal. That’s magick!

This week sees the launch of a new Inspect system in Home, allowing players to see what items other players are wearing and where they got them. So, if you spot someone wearing a great outfit or using an awesome portable item you can quickly and easily find out more about them.

You can see details on the item, whether it is a reward or purchasable and where it can be acquired.

PlayStation Home won't receive new content in Japan starting next month, while other regions in Asia will stop seeing Home updates starting March 2014. But don't fret just yet, Home users in North America and Europe: According to Sony Computer Entertainment's announcement, the PS3 avatarium will continue to be updated weekly in your regions.

While maybe not the focal point it once seemed it might be, Home has been going strong for nearly five years, featuring content updates that have included new areas, games, gear, and other goodies. It's even been a hub to watch Sony events from, like the PS4 reveal.

Whether or not today's news signals the beginning of the end for Home remains to be seen. Back in 2011, Sony said PlayStation Home had been visited by 23 million users worldwide, a fair deal of those happy to stump up cash in the virtual world.

Luckily, you won’t need to choose because we’ve gone ahead and built the lot!

Explore the vast shelves and dusty nooks of the Library for scattered fragments of text from the Harry Potter books. Test your knowledge and your memory by piecing them together in an all-new Reading game.

Ladies and gentlemen, I would like to introduce you to the new definition of luxury in PS Home: The Diamond Beach Mansion!

It’s time to upgrade from your Harbor Studio and move to your own personal island paradise. The Diamond Beach Mansion is luxury; our designers have worked tirelessly creating the most opulent personal space available in Home.

Much like the exclusive Mansion #1, the Diamond Beach Mansion was designed in four distinct sections, all releasing in the coming months.


First to release is the spacious First Floor. The First Floor contains a kitchen that would make any celebrity chef jealous, with more interactivity than any other personal space inside of Home. The ground floor also has a floor to ceiling aquarium, which you can maintain to help the aquatic life thrive. Because an empty mansion isn’t much of a mansion at all, the First Floor comes with 14 complementary furniture and decorative items as well as a gift machine with plenty of exclusive items to give your esteemed guests.

The fun isn’t limited to the interior of the Diamond Beach Mansion; the surrounding island has plenty to see and do. Go for a swim in the ocean on your private beach or catch big air behind your speed boat on your wakeboard in the new mini game. Ownership of the mansion even includes a membership to the Diamond Beach Marina and Yacht club where you can rub shoulders with Home’s most influential members. Hang out with Home’s most prestigious users in the bar, or catch up some rays with other beautiful people in an oceanside cabana.


The movers and shakers inside of Home have been asking for control – the control of time. Since the Diamond Beach Mansion pulls out all the stops, the builders of the Mansion are happy to announce that they have listened. Dynamic control of time of day and night is included in the Mansion. Want to wake up to the sounds of the ocean, or party all night long in your beach oasis? The choice is yours — change the time of day whenever you like and see what it feels like to be Father Time.

The First Floor is the first of four parts of the Mansion being released in the coming months; don’t forget that purchasing your first part of the Diamond Beach Mansion entitles you to discounted prices on future portions of the Mansion as they are released. This makes it easy to go full baller status and own all four parts of the Mansion and discover all the secrets they hold… which of course unlocks the secret fifth portion!

If the life of beach luxury wasn’t enough we’re excited to announce that if you buy the First Floor of the Diamond Beach Mansion within the first ten days of release, a bonus exclusive First Floor item bundle will be included with your purchase. This bundle’s combination of clothing and decorative items will give your seaside mansion even more flare to show off.

So what are you waiting for? Start living the life you’ve always dreamed of today in the Diamond Beach Mansion!

This week Lockwood releases Kingdom of the Skies and Haven of the Skies, and we’ll be able to enjoy nDreams’ Masquerade Ballroom, complete with event appropriate clothing. Additionally, Home Tycoon’s Home Improvement Week Returns from the 10th to July 16th, and Konami releases a new space.

Of course there’s even more to enjoy, so let’s hop in and see what’s new!

Lockwood’s Kingdom and Haven of the Skies

Genie has heard tell of a gem not yet added to his collection, hidden in the distant Kingdom of the Skies, and has granted access to this Kingdom’s bustling bazaar. Those without magic carpets are of no use to the Genie, as flight is required to gather gems, so they may not progress beyond. Even owning a carpet is not sufficient to be to alight on one of the Kingdom’s scattered islands. Only those who’ve befriended the Genie may explore every island and uncover every secret.

Lockwood’s Fairytales

Some of you may remember the launch of the Fairytale King and Queen of Hearts way back in February. These were outfits based on designs by PlayStation Home user Jennifer Whitbread and created by Lockwood. Shortly afterwards, users were asked to vote on which of Jennifer’s designs they’d like to see in Home next. The overwhelming result was for Red Riding Hood and the Red Rider, so Lockwood got to work making them a reality!
