Home’s “chamber apartment” free for one week

It seems these harsh economic times are impacting real estate markets both actual and virtual, as Sony will be offering their new “Chamber Apartment” free to Home users for the first week.

Available in the Home Mall on May 14, the exotic personal space will be free to download until May 21, after which it becomes premium content. In addition to the waterfalls, lava pits and lush rugs, the new digs will feature an atrium with a gigantic face-embedded tree growing in the center, seemingly inspired by the famous fig tree-encased Buddha head in Ayuthaya, Thailand. Not Lord of the Rings. Not Star Wars. Not Fallout 3. That is, unless it talks.

God, I hope it doesn’t talk.
