Another Huge Home Content Update
With so much content, it’s hard to know where to begin! V1.3 was just released last Thursday, and this is the first big content update since then. I guess to start things off, you will be able to get NFL jerseys (for all 32 teams) at both the EA Sports Complex and the Home Mall. Since I haven’t been on yet, I’m not sure how much they cost. Since you can preview your items now, you can see what your guy looks like with it on (they should be available today).
Also available today is the camera item, so you can snap photos in first and third person and they save to the HDD so you can access them via the XMB as well. Apparently, you’ll also be able to use pictures for picture frames as well. This would also make it easier to share with friends online if you choose to do so (Flikr, Twitpic, etc).
As far as new spaces go, there is a new PixelJunk Museum, which is a public space dedicated to the world of PixelJunk, from Racers to Shooter (with included content you can collect as well). There is also a new personal space available today as well. The MotorStorm Monument Valley camp site. You can also purchase MotorStorm-themed furniture for it as well. It sits atop a Mesa, overlooking the festival, giving you a grand view of the valley.
Going beyond that, there’s also a ton of new content based off of the fictitious metal band Dethklok available in the mall. In the theater, there is a Metalocalypse video playing in there as well (I will have to check it out, big fan of the show). The Neptune Suite is available for purchase and there’s also a new line of Jon Burgerman virtual goods, including animated shirts and tattoos.
And last, but not least, EA Sports and PlayStation Home are in a partnership with Brees Dream Foundation, to help support the fight against breast cancer (since this month is Breast Cancer Awareness Month). There are exclusive virtual items you can buy to support this cause. 100% of the proceeds will go to that foundation. That’s it for this Home update! It seems to really be picking up on third party activity anymore. You can view the source here.
