VICKIE & Sodium Companions

13th August 2012

VICKIE has evolved from a simple user interface to a firm fan favourite and now it’s time for her to take that next step. VICKIE is breaking her programming and escaping the Sodium Hub and she needs your help to explore the rest of PlayStation®Home. She has created thousands of replica units you can wear and using her multi-link neural net, she can experience all the sights, sounds and fun PlayStation®Home has to offer while her central processor remains safely running the show at the Sodium Hub. You’ve got to love modern technology!

Leaving the Sodium Hub, even in a virtual sense, is going to be quite nerve-wracking for VICKIE. The Sodium Hub is all she’s known for a very long time now. So, to add a little moral support, Sodium’s scientists have created a couple of plucky little robot companions to keep her company. Sijed the Cobra looks fierce enough to keep VICKIE safe and Bijel the Jerboa is so bouncy and friendly, he’s sure to keep her spirits up as she battles to comprehend a new data stream.

Rare Species Pack – $1 of every purchase to charity!

7th August 2012

Lockwood have teamed up with The Red Endangered Animal Connection Trust (REACT), a UK based charity, to support them in protecting endangered animals across the globe. We’ll be donating $1 for every purchase of the Rare Species Pack directly to them – so dig deep, adopt these companions in PlayStation®Home and help REACT protect endangered animals.

Most people only see pandas, lions and penguins on TV. Some might get to see them at the zoo or wildlife park. A lucky few might get to see them in the wild while travelling, but opportunities like that don’t come along too often. However, by the magic of Lockwood and PlayStation®Home, you not only get to see all these amazing animals, but you can also have them follow you wherever you go as your constant companion.

Xiong Mao the Panda enjoys rolling happily on his back, Maliki the Lion is just like his rarer cousin Kiburi and likes to prowl and roar. Pirta the Penguin is a kooky little bird – she slides everywhere on her belly! Continue reading

LKWD Summer Clothing

6th August 2012

At Lockwood HQ there hasn’t really been much of a Summer yet. In fact, there was one, fateful monsoony day when everyone downed tools for a moment to watch the trees outside bent double by the howling rains and lashing winds! So a couple of the Summer items are a nod towards the British Summer – the men’s light jacket and the ladies’ jeggings will help you keep covered up if your Summer is less than ideal too.

If you’re lucky enough to see some sunshine this Summer, or if you’ll be spending it on your Dream Yacht to escape the bad weather, then there are some options for sun-seekers too. Crop tops, shorts and loose fitting vests will keep you cool while you work on that tan! Mix and match a variety of colour combinations to create your perfect Summer outfit. Gift Machine exclusive colours coming soon. Continue reading
