The Curtain Rises on the 10-Screen Movie Theater in PlayStation Home, MotorStorm Game Launching Crashes In, and Fat Princess Needs Cake!

165 7

Greetings Home-boys and Home-girls! It’s time for another PlayStation Home update

We’re proud to announce another major core space update. The Movie Theater brings you ten times as much exciting content [including from the PS.Blog! –Jeff] with a brand-new 10-screen layout, a new lobby, and the ability to unlock rewards in select screening rooms. Be sure to check out the screening rooms often – you never know when one of them will be giving something away. Stay tuned for lots of exclusive new videos over the coming months, including the future possibility of full-length TV shows or movies, with new features debuting on a regular basis.

But that’s not all! The Burn Zombie Burn space brings its classic cartoony graveyard style to PlayStation Home with a crypt for lounging in while you watch Burn Zombie Burn videos, a zombie-infested maze mini-game where you’ll be challenged to find your way out before you get zombified, and as always, an exclusive reward. Don’t get lost in the graveyard!

Next, the first wave of MotorStorm content will be swerving into PlayStation Home with MotorStorm Pacific Rift Game Launching functionality topping the bill. If you’re new to Game Launching, click here for more info on how this great functionality works.

There will be more MotorStorm news coming your way very soon; in the meantime, check out the screenshots below for a tantalizing snippet of some of the great MotorStorm content coming to PlayStation Home over the coming weeks.

Next (and this is very exciting) as of tomorrow, we will be launching a new event in PlayStation Home – the Fat Princess “Quest for Cake.” Based upon the brilliant PSN title which launches today, all you have to do is click on the PlayStation Events Space chip on your World Map to join in this very special confectionary quest.

In the fully redecorated space you will find eight pieces of cake, locked away in cages. To unlock the cake and feed your Princess you need to search the space high and low for clues. If you do manage to unlock all eight pieces of cake, and feed the Princess, a special reward will be yours – the Fat Princess’ very own throne for your personal apartment. Here are a few screenshots of the space to whet your appetite…

See you in Home!

  • You guys have finally taken my advice (and it’s probable that many other people offered similar advice) about the multi-screen theater, so I’m really happy about that.

    Fat Princess space looks great, and I can’t wait to log in there!

  • No Visari Throne Room?

  • what an amazing fat update XD

  • yay! sweet update.. now if only home was online :P

  • Why on earth would *anybody* waste time in the clunky world of Home to watch a TV show or movie?

    Looks like the programmers gave up trying to tighten up the code for efficiency and are looking for something else to do.

  • sounds like a great update.So showing movies in the theater a work around from not being able to share movies in your own home spaces?

  • whens the store gonna update??

  • Fat Princess Game Launching and Map table/strategy room?

  • sony hurry up on the psn store update pleaseee ,,, i want fat princess

  • Hey Guys, Home is up actually for Moderators right now, So get ready soon, apparently its a tech issue that we can’t get on. So be ready. PSN updates at night

  • Sounds good keep it up!

  • shouldn’t there be game launching in home available as the game is itself is actually launching? kinda too late for motorstorm isn’t it? I remember when there was a motorstorm game launching demonstration from home at E3…. in 2007!

  • Will the videos in the new theater be synchronized to all users? This will be crucial if anyone wants to watch a show with other people.

  • @63
    Game Launching really was taken in different ways. Also MotorStorm JUST got the patch not that long ago to support Game launching. What home will do for Game Launching is pretty much setting up a match with people you find on home and you going directly to the game. That helps?


  • @66
    The Game is on the store right now, also it is in the UK as well. Um…..I can’t really do anything for you there..

  • When I said in the store, its loaded but they need to update it as well.

  • When you say ‘give away prizes’ in the theatre… how? just by watching some videos, or by some weird mini-games?
    Please explain.

  • I could go for some cake right now!!!

  • It’s true what the guys from home staff said. That if we don’t log in on home, we will be missing out. So my butt is going in on home today!! Great update. I just hope we can game launch Fat Princess today @ the home space. Will it be available? o.o

  • Oh also guys, The EA Pro Shop opens to day besure to check that out!

  • Great work as always, and I am guessing home is still down to implement all of this.

  • Finally, movies and TV shows on the movie screen. And a Fat Princess mini game to boot?!??! This is the best update yet! Keep up the hard work.

  • @73
    I said this kinda already but apparently Moderators can get in but not normal users sadly ;(

  • The 10 theatre intrigues me

  • Sweet! I told someone in Home I thought there would be full length movies in there, will you need to pay for them though? Or since there are advertisements will that help foot the bill?

  • Here is my guess on how it works
    You enter the room and pretty much watch the whole trailer and are awarded your item. Its like how Japan does theres.

  • Anyway for a Sub account to use home Yet? I don’t want to make a masters because all my trophies are on my sub but I really want to use Home with that I account not my masters.

  • I have been waiting for fat princess for so long and it is finally here today, the burn zombie burn space and fat princess space will be fantastic for everyone enjoyment today. I will be playing all day to get all the unlockables so I hope to see everyone on today for a few laughs, I hope the mall has what I like this week because I stocked up on some psn card Monday.

  • Oh sorry 75

  • I’m glad to see that a better theatre has finally returned to the US Home. Thanks for the update Cyd.

  • HOME just gets better and better…

  • 6 months ago, I’d have bought Fat Princess in a heartbeat. But, I’ve had so much time pass that the hype is gone, and it’s $5 more than I expected as well. So, I’m passing on day one, and will wait to see what people think after a week or so, when the hype is gone.

  • awesome Home update! \o/

    thx Home ppl ^^

    but what about a WipEout game space ? 8)

    and how about including support for that XMB screenshot feature in Home? It would be great to be able to capture the crazyness moments in Home ^^

    People in Home always it would be a cold day in hell when the theater’s are filled.
    Personally this is awesome. I can’t wait till it becomes like what we saw at e3 in years past.
    I believe it comes out today cuz Europe is getting the same updates.

  • Awesome, thanks so much!

  • @#86: QUIT COMPLAINING! I’d so rather have rewards, fat princess, and motorstorm than lousy screen shot feature.
    S***! People like this is why Sony finds it so hard to please their people.

  • Fantastic update… I’m so excited for the new theatre and the Fat Princess game!

  • When Fat Princess is released on disc, I’ll buy it.

  • Cydonia you guys are Rocking my Home lol, awesome job sweetheart awesome job!!! :D

  • nice job guys, great work, but realy down to business u need to update the US store. seriously fat princess needs her cake!

  • Can’t wait to feed the Princess and get her fat. Definitely getting that today. By the way, is it possible to make some Fat Princess themes and wallpapers? I’d like to represent my Fat Princess pride, thanks.


  • What’s the point of a game specific Home space once the game gets dated? What’s it purpose?

    What else is there to do six to twelve months after the launch of the space?

    When will game launch work accross all titles?

    What happened to the Trophy room? “That was the coolest room you guys show.”

  • To #7: I’m the biggest Sony fan boy, but Sony is “dominating online console gaming” ? Really? If there’s one thing I’ll give to Xbox, it’s that there Live service (from what I’ve seen/read) is where online gaming is it. Yes, I know it costs money and it’s flooded with immature punks but despite that, it still seems to offer the best online gaming.

    PS3 might offer Free online gaming and Home, but I’ve never seen the allure of Home. I’ve gone there and there is almost nothing to do. Any media I see there can usually be found online (or just isn’t worth the effort in loading Home and then running around to find/see it) and the games (as of 3 months ago) were just blah. Once they offer true matchmaking for most games, it’ll be much better. Aaannnddddd, most PS3 gamers don’t use headsets and to enjoy online gaming, you need headsets… otherwise, it’s like you are playing smarter bots.

    I came to the blog to find out if there was a time for Fat Princess today as I plan on picking that up and hoping for a high bluetooth turnout, but I have small expectations.

  • Cool, movie theater sounds nice and I love Burn, Zombie, Burn, so looking forward to that- BUT…


    Seriously… :(

  • 91: Are you that against not being able to have a physical tangible game? What’s the difference?

    It loads faster and even if your PS3 dies, gets erased, or the game somehow corrupts itself, you still get 4 more times to download it.

    I guess I can see your point if it’s a $50-60 game (as you may want to resell), but when a game is $15, that point is almost irrelevant.

  • @30 MeltTech

    Dont Get OFF Topic… Im Tech Support on Diffent Things over the Phone.. Im sure you dealed with Someone over in India or the Philippines for Tech Support.

    They Gave you a Price and thats a good deal for fixing a failed 60GB Model

    for Home Fat Princess “Quest for Cake.” .. Thats the Same Room that was Used a while back from “Europe PSP Hunt Space” just with diffent things changed and added in..

    Why Didnt you Make a New Room Just for Fat Princess Space or is it being Made.. or is that the Final Space??

    Keep up the Hard work for Home “Beta Tester of Home :D”

    And Yes I agree The Theater needs a Option when you Sit down in a Seat you should get the Option to Show Full Screen or just Hit Nothing to keep in Normal View with out Full Screen or Something.

    Cant wait for Tonight :D
