Sony’s divisive virtual world PlayStation Home is set to get a few upgrades this week. Version 1.65 brings with it a new user interface and speed improvements – making it even easier to stalk avatars wearing nothing but swimwear.

Tweaks include a new menu screen, personal voice chat and more intelligent use of furniture slots. Unless you’re a regular user of Home the changes won’t mean much, but they should help to improve the experience for frequent users.

If you still consider Home to be a stain upon your PS3’s XMB, then we encourage you to dive back in – especially if you haven’t ventured into the virtual world for a couple of years. It’s a much more active place these days, with a much bigger emphasis on games.
