VEEMEE – Acorn Meadows Park + MyBedroom
Acorn Meadows Park
Spring is here, and it's time to experience the great outdoors in VEEMEE's Acorn Meadows Park. With wide open grassy spaces, rolling green hills, leafy hedges, oak trees and a beautiful lake, Acorn Meadows Park is the perfect place to relax, hang out with your friends and meet new people. You can exercise your dog, mess around on the lake with a friend in a pedal boat, or take a bicycle ride for two. Why not take a ride around the Park on the miniature steam train and tour the park in style. Feeling hungry or thirsty after your exercise? Buy a steaming cup of Joe from the coffee kiosk or a hot dog or ice cream cone. For the dog lovers amongst you, spend your time with your favourite VEEMEE dogs in the Dog Park or take them for a run around the Park. If you don't have a dog yet don't worry; you can choose from six new best friends in the Park store. As a special welcome from VEEMEE, every player is given 200 Acorn Vouchers for free the first time they enter Acorn Meadows Park. Use your Acorn Vouchers to enjoy the many activities available in the park. The more you do in The Park the more experience points you earn. Cash in your experience points to buy an ice cream, a coffee, or even a bike! Each time you level up you will be given even more free Acorns. There are loads of ways to earn experience points in Acorn Meadows Park. There are also lots of rewards up for grabs, with tasks and challenges galore. Can you find them all? Check out the Notice Boards around the park for more information. Acorn Vouchers can also be purchased in the Park store - buy or earn them; it's up to you! VEEMEE are delighted to bring a bit of nature to PlayStation Home. Over the following weeks and months, more and more challenges, rewards and activities are going to be added to Acorn Meadows through regular updates. We hope you enjoy them! We would love to build future content for you so let us know what you think by posting on the Official Home forums, sending us a tweet, or emailing them your ideas.

Lockwood – Drey
Drey’s latest collection encompasses looks for day and evening. The Sweetheart outfit is smart and practical enough for meetings with its pale pink vanity case and chunky platform sandals, while the plunging top and cute collar bring enough sexiness to be a hit on the dancefloor. The Starlet oufit’s sweeping gown and fur stole are more obviously partywear, but the gown is actually made up of separates, meaning the strappy midnight blue can actually be teamed with jeans or trousers for a more casual look. The guys have the choice of the dashing Aviator, comprising of a smart leather jacket and turn-up slacks, or the stylish Mariner, which includes a more formal jacket and loafers. Again, both outfits can be dressed up or down with the addition of jeans or shirts. It’s all the usual versatility you’d expect from Drey.
LOOT – Men In Black™
Coming from your friends at LOOT™ are five new Men in Black™ locomotions that will have you riding - and flying - around PlayStation Home. Be like one of the Agents, saving the galaxy in style with your very own Monocycle and Jetpack. Wanting something a bit more…Animal? Channel your inner Boglodite and cruise about on Boris’ Bike.
