Home celebrates birthday with free stuff

Tree houses! Santa Claus! Flashing hats!

PlayStation Home is one year-old this month and to celebrate Sony is releasing a bunch of free virtual stuff.

According to the European PlayStation blog that'll include a free Ewok-style Tree House. There's also the MotorStorm: Pacific Rift camp personal space, which has a dock and a dance tent.

Today will see the opening of the Winter Wonderland space in the Shopping Centre. Your help is required to help Santa's elves finish decorating, and you can visit the man himself to receive some mini-games. Careful now.

Meanwhile, you can now pick up a flashing hat, choosing from red, blue, green or yellow, in the Alter Ego store. Plus there are two new masks.

And finally, Sony has found a fix to an error which caused problems for some people trying to log in to Home. There will be some extended downtime today while it's all sorted out.
