First up, the US

First up is Ooblag’s Alien Casino, a game made specifically for the PlayStation Home community as part of our Welcome Back package. Enter this interstellar casino and try your hand at Ooblag, a multiplayer game of craps…with a twist. Winners will be rewarded by being transformed into extraterrestrial high rollers while losers will be punished severely by Raaksu, the casino’s ruthless Pit Boss. As an added bonus, players that access the Ooblag Alien Casino space will be rewarded an active item version of the Ooblag game that can be played in their personal spaces. Check out the trailer for a peek at this exclusive (and 100% free) game – coming soon to PlayStation Home!

Next, the highly-anticipated top-down, shoot ‘em up game, Scribble Shooter, will be released in just two weeks! This charming arcade-style game (which was hand-drawn by a developer’s 12 year old son) will take over PlayStation Home’s Central Plaza on Thursday, July 21st. Play the first level and then purchase the full game as an arcade cabinet for your personal space. Those of you who played the demo of this game in our virtual E3 booth are familiar with Scribble Shooter’s addictive gameplay and unique style, but what you haven’t yet seen are the collection of awesome rewards, which will be granted to players as they beat each level’s boss battle. Mark your calendars, my friends – Scribble Shooter will be in your hands before you know it…

This Thursday, July 7th, we will be updating the PlayStation Home Mall with a ton of new items – from Sodium “Abyss Trooper” costumes to new LOOT space furniture and more. Here’s a short video that highlights some of the new content that will be on the shelves this week!

Speaking of new items, Codeglue releases a new batch of items under the Mesmo line this Thursday – including what may be my favorite companion to date, the hilarious Hamster in a Ball!

Now Europe

Onto this Thursday’s update and we begin with a selection of brand new and very funky MESMO clothing from Codeglue in the Cardboard Cartel store. The Stuff store sees the arrival of a range of Solitaire game tables for use in your apartment. In the Furniture store, fantasy fans can find a collection of dragon figurines, including a bundle of all six at a reduced price. For ladies who love pink, the Threads store is host to the Pink Butterfly outfit, which includes a stylish skirt, bikini top, heels, gloves and hairstyle.



Old school gamers listen up! Remember those classic games you and your friends played all night? Show your love for the good old days and dress your PlayStation Home Avatar in items related to many Konami Classics, such as Sunset Riders, Blades of Steel, Gradius V, Track & Field and Double Dribble. Head on over to Threads and travel back in time.

Impressed by the technology demonstrated in Iron Fusion’s recreational mech suits, intergalactic military organisation Astra Corps commissioned them to produce armour for their soldiers. The first batch of uniforms, specifically designed for Abyss Trooper units, ships today.

Other Astra Corps units have already taken to calling the Abyss Troopers ‘Honey Ants’ because of the honey-gold colouring on the uniforms, and the unit’s role in forming an ‘Ant Trail’ for other soldiers to follow.


Abyss Troopers are tasked with exploratory and reconnaissance missions. Expected to go to dark, unchartered corners of the galaxy, they’re required to prepare the way for the more heavily militarised, less manoeuvrable units. Close-fitting, flexible armour ensures they can move quickly when encountering unexpected danger. To guard against getting lost in the blackness during these missions into the unknown, their helmets are fitted with emergency phase lighting and state of the art scanning technology. Their gloves incorporate a communication device to ensure no trooper gets left behind. Join the Corps and experience Iron Fusion’s extraordinary design mechanics for yourself. Available in all Lockwood and Sodium stores.

New from LOOT this week: Decorate your personal space with the eight stunning PLANETS of our solar system! Sorry, Pluto, you didn’t make the cut. Also new to the LOOT store, the OCTOPOOTS have landed! Octopoots are cute angry little creatures that clog up our ‘interwebs’ and slow down our bandwidth! So, LOOT Chemical went out, collected the pesky critters, and turned them into hats and hoodies galore. Recycling is fun!

Last but not least, float on over to the Alter Ego and Stuff stores in the first Shopping Centre and check out the new B’Loons range of items. Now you can have a faithful balloon animal companion follow you everywhere you go, or even don your very own balloon suit and float around Home Square with some unique movements.
