A new nightclub, an update for Novus Prime, an update for Great Edo of Nippon, new clothes, and a new quest are all part of this week’s PlayStation Home update arriving on Wednesday. An announcement about a game coming to PS Home next week is made as well. Read on to find out more, as well as take a look at some PSLS exclusive Novus Prime images.

The first addition to PlayStation Home is the x7 nightclub. x7 is a VIP nightclub where PlayStation Plus subscribers and collectors of the PS Home Exclusive line can get early access to select content before it’s released to the public, discounts, and free items. Other PS Home users can access x7 for $4.99 for a weekly pass. The game FLIRT can also be played in x7, where users can compete against each other to become king or queen of the nightclub. A video of the nightclub can be seen towards the bottom of this post.

Novus Prime Update 5.5 is being released to PlayStation Home as well, when the items listed below will be released. Members of the x7 club will receive one week early access to the below items.
