Alien Invasions on Home

Aliens vs Androids

Androids are now being recruited to defend Home from a new alien threat. Aliens have been spotted abducting small animals and threatening Home residents. In much the same fashion as the zombie vs humans and hamster vs humans battles, there’s going to be a dance-a-thon to see who stays and who goes on PS Home. Check out this new HOME News broadcast and decide which team you wish to join. Afterwards, visit the new LOOT store at the mall to grab your alien or android costumes:

New Real Estate, New Spaces, Events, Updates and Issues

New Real Estate

Planetland Personal Space
This futuristic personal space is set on a strange planet and is guarded by a giant plant. It overlooks a gorgeous alien landscape complete with waterfalls for $4.99. This space offers very little (if any) spaces to hang personal photos, but does have an exit to central plaza. Check out the PlanetLand Personal Space:

 
Loco Island Personal Space
Fans of the LocoRoco series will love this interactive personal space available for $6.99. This island paradise is filled with adorable little creatures from the game. Players can fill the island with more Loco or MuiMui inhabitants by collecting Piktories. Piktories are little purple bugs that buzz around the island or on the MuiMui King’s ship (see new spaces) and tend to hide in tall grass. Simply dance in front of one of the little yellow guys and take him over to the grass to find the Piktories and collect them. There’s a personal reversi game table, bar, dance floor and more on this personal island. Check out the Loco Island Personal Space available now at the Real Estate store located on the second floor of the Mall:

New Spaces

MotorStorm Carrier
The old MotorStorm space has been replaced with a more interactive MotorStorm Carrier. It features an arcade game called Lunatic Launcher, a huge dance floor and a NPC Treasure Hunt mini-game that unlocks MotorStorm virtual items. It also has a DJ turntable game that allows players to act as the dance floor DJ by mixing or playing with music from the Listen@Home center. Check out the new MotorStorm Carrier:

MuiMui King’s Ship

LocoRoco's MuiMui King's Ship is a new space that's full of interactivity

This large ship has several interactive creatures that react to you simply by dancing. There are several games to participate in such as the Domingo Races and Loco Reversi. Players can save the Piktories they have been collecting in their personal space to purchase virtual items or shop the shopping area. They can purchase LocoRoco series games, demos or special items like extra MuiMuis or Luche’s for their island. Not sure what your personal island inhabitant’s are doing? You can spy on them from the ship using the binoculars near the Domingo Race upstairs or dance with the MuiMui’s in the club area downstairs near the gift shop gazebo.

Events

Make dot Believe
In Central Plaza players will find floating black orbs of electricity near the apartment complex. This is part of Sony’s new “Make.Believe” campaign. This week’s campaign is about music and the freebie is a full drum. It will look exceptionally cool next to the Guitar Hero 5 Guitar obtained from the Guitar Hero 5 VIP area.

Freebies at the Movies Today
The trailers for SOCOM: Fire Team Bravo 3 are now playing at the Theater located in Central Plaza. The last virtual t-shirt will be available until February 23, 2010, so visit the theater now to claim your freebie before they disappear forever.
