PlayStation Home Update: Sunset Lounge Expands the Dream Universe
by Cade Peterson // Community Manager, PlayStation Digital Platforms
This week in PlayStation Home, Lockwood introduces the Sunset Lounge, Atom Republic launches exciting new locomotions, and HellFire games has new Aqua Mounts to fly around on. There’s more below, and don’t forget to get engaged with the PlayStation Home Community on the PlayStation Forums.
Lockwood – Sunset Lounge, Air Band Animations + Lock-a-doodle Update
The Dream Universe has always been about enjoying the finer things in life. Now, as a special thank you to all Dream Universe patrons, Lockwood have created the Sunset Lounge, an exclusive public space accessible only by owners of Dream estates. To celebrate, two new outfits are available in the Exclusive Commerce Point. The white pinstripe suit and gold dress are the perfect attire for an afternoon of Blackjack in the Sunset Lounge’s beautiful seafront casino. Blackjack is absolutely free to play, and there are rewards for the best players. If that all sounds too formal, then slip into some swimwear and take a dip in the incredible ocean, or feed the fish from the unique glass jetty.
Air Band Animation Pack
Rock it like a stadium star without letting a clumsy ol’ instrument get in the way. The Air Band animation pack gives you the option of that old classic air guitar, plus the lesser known air saxophone, air vocalist and air drummer. Join up with some friends and show off your rock star style!
New doodle packs are available for Lock-a-doodle! We have Figment and Stitchkins themed packs in the store, owners of the pre-order pack will see their game automatically update with theses two gems. We also have a fool throttle pack available exclusively via the Gift Machine.
Atom Republic – Lightspeeders
Explore Home in style, riding this slick animated motorcylce: neon lights cycle through all different colors, and at high speed a streak of light will stretch from your tail lights!
Digital Leisure – New Fish Pack
Oh man, new fish pack, full on, all the way. What does this mean? It means Digital Leisure bringing you another expansion to your aquarium! The Rainbow Pack is filled with 4 very colorful fish that will add an extra splash of color to any tank. With this pack you’ll receive a Mandarinfish, a Rainbow Notho, a Cortez Rainbow Wrasse, and a bi-color Parrotfish. Check out your aquarium and see how intense
these new fish are! Now go on and feed your fish, and make your aquarium how you want. It’s your aquarium – your rules!
Granzella – Silky Blouses + Carp Streamers
Each of the three Color Variations on the Silky Blouses include 4 items. A blouse and skirt as separate items are perfect for mixing and matching with other items, but we also include the blouse and skirt as a single item for a perfect fit for when you want to stun in full matching outfit. And OMG, how about those pumps?! You're going to look great no matter how you wear these!
The Self-assembly Carp Streamer Set includes an arrow streamer and base which can be decorated with up to three carp streamers. In addition the set includes a Miniature Carp Streamer. Decorate your personal space with a carp streamer swimming gracefully. You can move like the wind on riding on top of a Locomotion Carp Streamer. The R1 button will present a menu allowing you to choose from 3 different sitting positions. Available in black, red, and blue variations.
HellFire Games – Aqua Mounts
A brand new batch of Aqua Mounts arrives this week from Hellfire Games! Swim through the air and instantly boost your speed to 150% with the new Savage Hammerhead, Graceful Manta Ray, Beluga Whale, Mercury Shark, Lovely Pink Dolphin, and Golden Shark Aqua Mounts, available in the Home Tycoon Train Station and Novus Prime.

Konami – Dragons + Wings

UPDATE: JAM Games content removed as it is delayed.
Looks like a nice update. Glad to see that you don't need to own all Dream estates to get access to the Sunset Lounge. Any word on when some of the mentioned features that core update 1.80 introduces, for release?

Not so sure on the stripped bedding yet but will certainly take a look on Wednesday.
