NFL Comes to PlayStation Home + Dethklok, PixelJunk Museum and MotorStorm Personal Space

152 1

Hold on to your seats, Home-people, because I have some news that is going to blow you away. To start, EA SPORTS has brought the NFL into PlayStation Home. That’s right – you’ll now be able to represent your favorite franchises (Go Steelers!) by sporting your favorite team’s jersey while in-world. These jerseys are now available in the EA Sports Complex (and the Home Mall) and cover every team in the entire league (32 jerseys total). With v1.3 now live on your PlayStation 3s and sporting universal game launching functionality, PlayStation Home has truly become the destination for all of you football fans. Log in, toss on your favorite jersey to let your fellow man knows what’s up, launch into online co-op games of Madden NFL 10, and then return to Home to do it again and again. Never before has finding a friend to sack the ‘back with been easier. Bring the wood!

You’ve all been waiting since last Thursday’s v1.3 core client update for the highly-anticipated camera item, and that’s why we’re happy to announce that every one of you devoted PlayStation Home community members will now have a free camera. You heard me – free! This camera will automatically appear in your inventory today and will allow you to take photos from the 1st and 3rd person perspective. Any pictures you take will immediately be saved to the “Photo” section of your XMB where you can then share these photos both in-world and out, whether it is in the Picture Frames that decorate your personal spaces or on Flickr, Twitpic, or Photobucket accounts.

You’ll also find two new spaces have been released in PlayStation Home today– the PixelJunk Museum and the MotorStorm Monument Valley Campsite. The PixelJunk Museum is a sleekly designed public area dedicated to the PixelJunk series where you can explore and collect content related to the PixelJunk Eden, PixelJunk Racers, PixelJunk Monsters and PixelJunk Shooter titles. The MotorStorm Monument Valley Campsite is a mesa-top personal space with its own MotorStorm caravan and an amazing vista of the MotorStorm festival across the Valley. There’s also a ton of MotorStorm-themed furniture available to customize this exclusive hideaway. Check out the pics below.

Dethklok – the death metal super group from Adult Swim’s Metalocalypse cartoon – is pleased to announce that their never-ending quest for intergalactic domination has extended into the world of PlayStation Home. Show your support for all things evil (and metal…but mostly metal) and pick up the new Dethklok merch, available in the Mall, and check out the Dethklok video, now live in the Theater. Raise high the horns and rock out in a manner most deadly with Dethklok in Home!

While you’re in the Mall, you can also grab the new Neptune Suite furniture and other assorted virtual items and the new Jon Burgerman line of virtual goods. World-renowned for his hand drawn cartoon characters (which have been shown in galleries around the world), Mr. Burgerman has lent his talents to Home and has produced a special line of animated clothing for the guys and the gals. If you ever wanted a tattoo for your avatar, it’s high time you check out some of Burgerman’s patented designs.

We here at PlayStation Home are all about spreading the love around and supporting important charities. This is why we have partnered with EA SPORTS to produce and distribute exclusive virtual items that serve to support National Breast Cancer Awareness Month. 100% of proceeds for these items will go to the Brees Dream Foundation in support of breast cancer research and awareness programs, so please pick up these items and show your solidarity with all the breast cancer patients around the world. Remember, together we can fight this deadly disease.

  • So where is the camera and stuff???????

    Can someone from Sony say whats going on!!

  • Wow, you guys actually found a way for me to spend money on my avatar. One Dolphins jersey for me.

  • I think it would be cool if there was a playstation home area that would act as the PSN store. so your avatar could walk around this online store, look at game covers, (front and back) and be able to buy them. since alot of games are becoming digital, i think this would let us keep the in store game shopping experience as we know and love.

    idk it’s just an idea, i’m just throwing it out there!

  • Hey guys,

    Just a quick clarification. These items will be available on Thursday (which is the regular time that we publish content). The announcement for the EA SPORTS Breast Cancer Awareness items was supposed to read that those items will be available on October 15th. I must say that it’s very encouraging to see all of the support just in this comments section for this charitable initiative. Your words of support for this undertaking is proof positive that the PlayStation Home community is the best out there.

  • ha, should have known the today part threw me off.

  • All of this new content is cool, but what about a patch? Is there a patch going to be released soon. Deleting and reinstalling is not solving all the errors that still occurs on Home.

  • you know, all this stuff for home sounds cool, i haven’t seen any of it yet. my ps3 just freazes every time i try to get into home. when are you going to send out a patch to fix this.

  • Yah gonna fix home first before releasing this???? Problems should be addressed first before releasing more problems. Did I read that right, tattoos? We can put on tattoos? Or, if we put on tattoos, home will crash?

  • attention! i want to report that there’s currently hacking activities going on in home.i was there a few minutes ago and i was booted twice from my chess table!
    because of this incident i’m going to delete the whole program because i don’t want my password/identity to be stolen or anything

  • whenever i try to get on home it freezes right when the game actually launches please help!

  • GO DOLPHINS, yeah I know I know they suck, a man can dream can’t he??? >:( :P :D

  • 100% to The Brees Dream Foundation, that is great. I know where I will be shopping tomorrow.

    All right then, now I know where I will be shopping next Thursday. Thanks for the clarification L_S I would have been very disappointed to get home and not find any of these items in the stores.

  • PS Home for Brazilian PSNs? Please? Hello? Anybody?

  • I can’t even log into home after the latest update.

  • You might want to fix the freezing issues with logging into Home before adding more stuff.

  • Still no Biohazard 5 update?

    Come on, SCEA/Capcom? What’s the holdup?

  • So Home still freezes when I try to login, is there gonna be a fix for that or are you guys gonna conveniently forget about it and hope it goes away?

  • Has the camera been released yet? I’m not seeing it.

  • How come Europe gets Wolverine claws and we don’t? :( I’ve been looking forward to that ever since Home was announced..

  • COME ON!!! When are the WORKING Televisions going to come out!?!?!?!?

  • Yeah like everybody else i too had a problem signing into HOME. But then i just deleted HOME and reinstalled it and it works. I do like the idea of NFL jerseys and Deathlok, are they player jerseys or just 00 jerseys?

  • To everyone who’s Home crashing their PS3 when they try to login: just delete and re-download Home. Worked like a charm on my 60GB 3.01 FW.


  • … instantly went on home when I read dethklok stuff was available… and couldn’t find in in the mall :(

  • This new stuff would be awesome if I was actually able to get into Home. I have FW 3.01 and just updated Home to 1.3 and it freezes at initializing every time I try to log in. Off-subject, but inFamous freezes constantly since 3.01 so I can’t even play it any more. FIX THESE PROBLEMS!

  • IF HOME FREEZES DURING START UP FOR YOU: I’m pretty sure it’s just the Harbor Studio apartment. Delete that file file from the Save Data utility on the XMB. It will reset you decorations, but you’ll be able to log in. You should be able to change it back, but don’t log out while in the apartment. So when you log back in it won’t start you back there and it won’t freeze up. You can still visit there, just don’t log out from there. Anyway, this has worked for me, hopefully it will for everyone else too.

  • if u r having problems logging into Home
    delete it from the XMB then reinstall, u wont lose any data

  • NFL jerseys, Dethklok merch, the camera, Home has outdone itself. My credit card is on fire from the anticipation to be used. Carolina Panthers jersey, Dethklok jeans, a quick click from the camera, and I am showing off on MySpace & LittleBigPlanet!

  • i have a psp one of the umd series i would love to get a psp go but if i trade in my umd psp i can’t play my games and not just the old games but the ones i just got this summer Dissidia: Final Fantasy,Monster Hunter Freedom Unite,SoulCalibur: Broken Destiny & Dynasty Warriors Strikeforce. it seems as if sony really whats the psp to fell. the only way i’ll get a psp go is if i can tradeup to one, but not at the expense of losing my favorite new games:(

  • Well, seeing the words “now” and “today” a few times apiece got me all excited for COLTS and MURDERFACE! oh well, tomorrow I guess.

  • WoOT! Ravens Jersey!

  • Hear that TIBERIUS. This is actually the first PSP I won’t be buying. Sold my 1000 for cash on a 2000. Did the same for a 3000. I got quite a few UMD’s (no movies), and several DuoSticks. This PSP is a knife in my back.

  • Are you guys ever going to do anything about the atrocious character models and animation in Home? They look like they were done by a couple of twelve-year-old kids at summer camp. Seriously, how does that happen when some of the best looking games of this generation were developed at Sony studios?

  • they better fix all the problems home has so far. when i first heard about home i was looking foward to it but now im like…this sucks !!


  • Sweet! I was wondering when you guys were going to add sports jerseys to Home. Now just get working on some from the NHL ^_^

    Also, now both Home and PlayStation Life are working to fight cancer. Awesome stuff Sony. Definitely going to support the Home charity.

  • Somehow I don’t feel that Dethklok fits in with the flamboyant world of home.

  • Um I went in Home and NO CAMERA. WHAT HAPPENED??? And where in the mall are those jerseys???????

  • I think they should have posted the tread topic TOMORROW. I see no new updates,the message of the day doesn’t reflect the update this site said happened. SOMEONE should be fired for releasing this blog too soon. There is no jerseys,no camera…. Wow PS.BLOG GOOFED on this one. BIG TIME!!!!

  • Where is this camera suppose to be exactly?Nothing in either wardrobe or inventory.No jerseys in the mall unless they are in some hidden store…

  • Why didn’t they say that the new content is coming tomorrow?

  • Should have realized they wouldnt do anything until sometime on Thursday.Maybe thats a bad idea as the updates all at once seem to cause the servers problems.Do what MS does and spread it throughout the week as it helps in not crashing the systems and encourages more visits.

  • Yay! Thank you, Home admins and programmers! Cannot wait to see this in the morning! :)

  • Dethklok is Frackin AWESOME!

    Getting Gay Bashed in Home ISN’T!

  • I AM LOVING THE CHARGERS JERSEY… Yeah, yeah, so what if your Steelers beat my Chargers last Sunday, L_S? My bolts were getting destroyed most of the game, but you’d have to admit that they put up quite a fight in the last quarter! Good luck to your Steelers, and best of luck to my Chargers, baby, yeah!

    And major props to PlayStation Home and EA SPORTS for supporting National Breast Cancer Awareness Month. Together, we will fight, and always, we will remain strong!

  • Home is awesome now. Kinda boring before, but great now. You guys rock, keep it coming! :D

  • Again, another disapointing update. I was so let down with the last HOME update that I’ve about stopped going on home anymore. Not sure if I’ll even bother checking out this weeks updates :*(

  • Is this update for some other region?!? Because nothing mentioned here is available in USA! It is now October 8 4:30a.m. EST…

  • Sorry, noticed the clarification comment after posting. Thanks Locust_Star!

  • When does the Home update happen?? When will I see the FREE camera???????? I want a Chicago Bears Jersey, They might not be the best team but you gotta love your HOME TOWN team if not you get shot,lol,jk. L_S thanks for verifying the content comes out on Thursday, why the Blogger didn’t PROOF READ IDK. I guess they need a verbal warning. If they ever mess up again, you can fire ’em.
