Batcave Outpost Apartment, MotorStorm Event Space, and Tons More Coming to PlayStation Home

Calling all citizens of PlayStation Home!

It’s that time again – and by “that time” I mean “the time where I put the proverbial pen to paper and let you all know what’s coming up next in the rapidly-growing world of PlayStation Home.” I think you’ll be glad to see that – whether you come into Home to game launch with your friends, unlock rewards from your favorite games, or check out free music and video content and socialize – there’s a lil somethin’ somethin’ going on in-world this week that you can get down with.

We know that you Home-dwellers just love your rewards, so we’ve worked with the fine folk over at Eidos to ensure that their next release integrates tightly with our platform. Those of you who scoop up the highly-anticipated Batman: Arkham Asylum for your PLAYSTATION 3s next week will be pleased to see that the game unlocks a special Batcave Outpost personal space. It’s safe to say that hardcore Batman fans are going to seriously spazz out when they unlock Bruce Wayne’s secondary lair under Arkham, so if you count yourself a disciple of the Dark Knight, you’d better rush to get your hands on this title when it is released on August 25th.

Hardcore gamers have yet another reason to enter into the PlayStation Home fold as we will be launching a new game-themed event space specifically to host our MotorStorm: Pacific Rift game launching parties, set to occur every Monday night between 6pm and 10pm PT. This space, which marks the first ever “Globe of Death” to publish in Home, will showcase some rad MotorStorm footage and will serve as a hub for all of you racing fanatics in the Home community to meet and launch into games of MotorStorm: Pacific Rift. This event space will only be up for a limited time (though we do have some more surprises for fans of the franchise scheduled to release in the not-so-distant future, including a bunch of awesome MotorStorm clothes, so stay tuned to this here blog thingy for more news).

PlayStation Home MotorStorm Sphere

Many core areas of Home will see content updates this week, with new tunes being loaded into the Listen@Home kiosk, new clothes and furniture appearing in the Mall (including animated furniture – this stuff has to be seen to be believed!), and some new videos screening in the Theater. One of these videos, scheduled to go live on Sunday the 16th, is part of the ongoing Criss Angel: Mindfreak event. Much like the Criss Angel: Mindfreak video currently screening in our new 10-Screen Theater, this clip will reward those that dare enter with another exclusive virtual item – this time, a Criss Angel custom coffin table. But you’ll have to come in between the 16th and the 19th if you want this limited item. Those of you who check out this clip will also entered into a giveaway for 1 of 2 Criss Angel: Mindfreak Coffins and 1 of 3 Criss Angel: Burn DVD’s and Book sets (5 winners total).

Home Criss Angel

As a demonstration of the ever-evolving nature of PlayStation Home, there are a few updates scheduled for the EA SPORTS Complex and the Burn Zombie Burn game space. You’ll also see some significant additions to Central Plaza in coming weeks, but you’ll have to keep your eyes on this blog for all the details as they are released. In the meantime, head over to the Listen@Home kiosk and check out our updated events calendar. You’ll see that there is a regularly-occurring event scheduled for every night of every week. Whether it’s a game launching event for Street Fighter IV – or any of the other titles that launch in Home – or an official PlayStation Home forums party (like the one set to go down on Thursday night), there’s truly something for every gamer in-world. And if you want to throw your own event or attend one of the many awesome gatherings our die-hard community members regularly throw, just check out the Clubs and Events sub-forum on www.us.playstation.com.

  • no @101 posted to wrong blog page

  • PS Home, what a waste when manpower SHOULD be used for:

    -Cross Game Voice Chat
    -Party Features
    -A web browser that actually works well (webkit based or something)
    -Ability to stream internet music
    -Get Hulu working

    -Ability to launch ANY game from Home

  • the batcave looks real cool, i cant wait till the game comes out.

  • thats a bad ass bat cave

  • PS3 rules! Home is always a blast!!! Can’t wait for my Batspace!

  • The News Alert page in Playstation Home mentions two Criss Angel reward items – a couch/sofa (Aug 14 to Aug 16) and a table (Aug 16 to 19).

    Has anyone gotten the couch/sofa? I watched the Criss Angel video in the Theater and got the table today (Aug 16) but didn’t find another Criss Angel video for the couch/sofa.

  • guys i can’t wait tell batman arkham asylum

  • Thats all fine and well but you know what I really miss.

    A beach space cuz its summer let us have a little fun this summer with swim suits sun palm tree’s and the likes something with pine apples , coconut that stuff.

    Just for the fun of it an autumn and winter team for the up comming season will be nice to.

    ;)

  • I forgot some new dances would be great 2.

  • great bonus for getting the game, i can’t wait !!!

  • I am extremely happy to see that Sony & Game Developer’s are starting to get it together. I like that we PS3 owners will be the only one to get the Joker & we get a great Home space as well when we own the game. The only thing I think sucks is the look of the Batmobile. It looks like a Hotrod with a Sun Roof that has a Batmobile Shell on it. Also the Front Glass as far as I know was never Partioned like that. It just doesn’t look like a good batmobile.

    I also wish that Home Apartments were a little bit more interactive. Espically when you have a space like this, you want to interact with it.

  • im carloenrique if u wanna add me

  • im batman beyond

  • @ArcticTundra The sofa was in the same auditorium the week prior, but you probably know that by now. Da na na na na na na na na na Woo Batman!
