has revealed today that Toy Story 3 is hitting PlayStation Home alongside this weeks content update, as follows:
The inner child in me went "squee!" when I first saw the personal space based on Disney-Pixar's Toy Story 3.
So it's with much joy that I can confirm the much-asked-for "Andy's Room" personal space releases this week! Upon entering the space you'll be transported to the world of Buzz Lightyear, Woody, and the other toys owned by Andy Davis.
Packed with mini-games and fun interactive elements, Andy's Room is a must-have addition to your personal space collection. To get the ultimate experience, pick up a costume of one of the much-loved characters from the movie.
The Midway carnival space has proved a massive hit since release, with huge numbers of carnival rewards being picked up every day. This week we release the Trigger Happy In-A-Box arcade cabinet, which you'll be able to place in any of your personal spaces to bring the fun of the carnival home. If you've already bought the key to unlock access to this cabinet in Darla's Den, you'll get a discount.
Elsewhere in Home, we have a large variety of new content available from the stores. Those who have previously picked up the Neptune Suite personal space will be delighted with the range of furniture items launching this week. This week's collection includes seating and tables, such as the "Spider Legs collection" and some framed art for your walls.
Last week we released the first batch of Monkey Island 2 content to the stores. There's more this week, expanding the range of piratical content with some great new headwear. Watch out for the bundle pack coming soon, which will include all of the Monkey Island 2 content. Talking about hats reminds me of hair ... Visit the Playground store this week to go mad with a variety of '80s hairstyles!
Last weekend we saw a surge in the population of red scorpions in the Sodium space. We've been warned to expect a similar population explosion this weekend, so make sure you have your stomp boots to help cull the population! With so many red scorpions around, this is the perfect opportunity to unlock upgraded stomp boots.
As some may have already seen on the Message of the Day, we will be removing the ability to buy balls for the Supa-Fun Robo-Goalie Time!! mini-game during Thursday's maintenance. Those who still have balls, or bought balls recently, will have until July 29th to use them, when we remove this game to make way for a new feature. This won't be the end for the Robo-Goalie though, he'll return later this year.
Finally, as mentioned last week, the Hustle Kings event will be removed during maintenance.
