Well this has taken bloody long enough
We've been expecting this for months. Sony have taken the idea of Playstation Home and scaled it down for the PSP — readers, meet Playstation Room. Playstation Room will be added to the PSP's XMB and will offer a complete digital service for designing 3D avatars and spaces, along with blog, album, group...
Playstation Home is becoming quite the place to promote your products

Are you ready to don your second life and visit some Coca-Cola vending machines within it? That's exactly what's happening in Japan's Playstation Home, where vending machines for the famous sugar soda will hit the streets enabling you to purchase branded avatar items
You'll be a walking advert. But a sweet one at that!
Home hasn't stopped growing since the day it launched roughly a year ago
People still base their experiences on Home by those initial few disappointing months, but it really has hit its stride in recent times. A report via Andriasang.com continues to highlight the growth of Sony's Social Networking platform, listing a number of new features announced at CEDEC 2009. One new feature announced is the..
Playstation Home is getting lots of goodies

Purchasing the apartment alone gains you access to over 70 items to direct your space with. Note SCEA's new promotional campaign at the end of the trailer. "It Only Does..
We're sure our homosexual readers won't take offence when we declare this Gundam outfit for Playstation Home avatars a teensy bit camp
The costume will come as a reward for those who watch the trailer for Kidou Senshi Gundam Senki Gundam (which is being bundled with some Slims in Japan) in the Playstation Home theater. The trailer is only...
Actually, this is really a very good idea
We know people like to labour on about Playstation Home but we think it's come on leaps and bounds, and will continue to do so with Home 1.3. And photography is really smart based on the social atmosphere they are trying to create in Home. Pictures you take can be stored on you Playstation HDD, allowing you to relive classic Home moments. Or just perve up..
Singstar is finally coming to Playstation Home, with a Space that packs jukeboxes, quizzes and dance floors
Exactly what more could you want from a Home space? The answer is of course "nothing". Still, the trailer teases more to come.
Remember Xi? The alternative reality game that made Playstation Home a real living place to be
Yeah, it was awesome wasn't it? People always think we're being sarcastic when we talk about Home being awesome, but we think the developers and its audience are really starting to find their niche. There are a surprising number of people who spend a lot...
Hey MotorStorm: Pacific Rift fans
Up for meeting some likeminded gamers in Playstation Home and launching a game of your favourite off-road racer? Wicked. It's heading to Home as part of tomorrow's update so now you've got your bases covered. The Playstation Blog are also teasing big announcements for Home/MotorStorm connectivity.
As part of a brilliant new Fat Princess themed Playstation Home quest, the Princess needs cake
And you're going to stuff her full of it. You'll participate in a quest for slices of cake throughout the Home based adventure and eventually unlock gigantic gateux to stuff her majesty. Fantastic stuff. This launches tomorrow. We'll see you in there.
PSNow have some of the first screens of the new Fat Princess themed Playstation Home space

A Playstation Home survey has been sent out to Playstation owners in order to help gauge the future of the platform
The survey hints at music sharing, video sharing and trophy support among many others. Recipients are asked to rate the concepts based on how likely they are to get them to return to the Home service. One section asks users to indicate...
SCEA's Katy Field has revealed that inFamous' demo became the first to ever reach 1,000,000 downloads
Hopefully everyone that downloaded the demo ended up buying the game. Still, a successful number for the Sucker Punch team that, at the very least, showcases a lot of interest in the game. In fact, evidently such was the interest that a Playstation...
Playstation Home has gained 7 million users to date
To be honest we think that's a rather decent number. Joystiq disagree. They report that with over 21 million PS3s in the wilderness, adoption rate for home is probably less than 33%. It's certainly a valid point but not necessarily one that we think matters. Seeing as Home is making a rather decent...
Beware your eyes valued reader
Beware your eyes indeed. For the frightening Playstation Home event involving humans and hamsters dancing for ghetto supremacy has been immortalized in the chastised YouTube video we've embedded above. Reader press play at your own peril.
We're so darn tempted by this it hurts. A Playstation Home update will allow you to purchase the Ghostbusters Firehouse and make it your own personal space. Not only do you get the full three story building perfectly replicated, but you'll also be able to control Slimer and make your own movies with StageSet. SOCOM: Confrontation will also...
Already available in the Japan, Namco Museum Essentials is coming to North America this July

The Everbody's Golf Home space has been a major hit in Japan
And, as of tomorrow, it will be available to Europeans. Not only that, but users who happen to spot an avatar wearing an unusual pair of trousers will do well to say "Fists of Plastic" to it — they'll receive a specially themed Rag Doll Kung Fu rug for their efforts. You can...
For those of you interested in owning some new real estate in Playstation Home, you'll want to take a look at Visari's Throne Room from Killzone 2
The suite overlooks the war-torn world of Helghan and is lit by a murky sunset which sweeps in through the gothic windows. The new space will be available sometime after June.
If anyone was wondering whether Sony's press conference would be available via the Playstation Home platform, the answer is yes -- albeit not live

HQ is heading to Sony's Playstation Home platform very soon. In the area you can chat and meet up with other quiz fans in a new lobby area or take part in a multiplayer Buzz! quiz game extravaganza. Rob Rutter, European Product Manager for Buzz! had this to say on the new Playstation EU Blog:The game works by making you run around the studio to...
An interview conducted with Home director Peter Edward in The Escapist concludes that the population of Sony's digital world is on the way upwards: "We're at the point now where we're starting to see our active user-base go up and we're getting more people coming back than are leaving," said Edward
"So, we're at the tipping point of where the...
Sony just emailed to let us know that the Resistance 2 Home Space is available in Europe now
Don't know what they're smoking but, erm, it's not. Anyway. The Resistance 2 Home Space - which we're presuming will be on European servers soon and May 21st in US - features Resistance 2 game launching and a jazzed-up space invaders minigame where you fend...
Thank you SCEE community manager "Ted The Dog"
You've finally admitted what we've been thinking. The European Playstation Home is way, way, way behind other regions. And that means there's less for us Europeans to do, less for us to see and less reason for us to visit. All in all - sort it out. Which Ted The Dog fully intends to do:" up to date...
We've often sat around in the office wishing our Playstation Home apartment had a tree in the middle
Thank goodness for the new "Chamber Apartment" which will be available for free between the 14th and 21st of May. It has a tree in the middle.
Something exciting always happens when we see Playstation Home clothes
At first we think they're real. And we let out a little yelp as we scour the page for a "Buy It Now" link; until we finally realise they are DIGITAL clothes for our DIGITAL character in Sony's DIGITAL world. Sigh. At least these Patapon 2 themed shirts do look kind of cool. No word on whether they'll be free or not,..
EA are supporting Playstation Home bigstyle
There's already the Godfather II home area with a rather excellent game of Texas Hold 'Em, and released today is the first part of the EA Sports Complex. Which includes a racing game. It'll also act as a massive hub for EA Sports fans including trailers of upcoming releases. Nice one EA. Home is continuing...
We have to admit, Playstation Home is beginning to motor now
After an initial "there's nothing to do", it's looking more and more likely that there's something for everyone to do, even if you only spend 5 minutes or so doing it. On its way to the service today (April 9th) is another new space. This time a The Godfather II themed area. And guess what? It has a full Texas Hold 'Em mode,..
Xi has really got us interested in Playstation Home
I mean, we really think it's a genius idea. So it's no idea Sony are pretty pleased to see their pet-project beginning to gather some steam."You have publishers and brands coming into Home looking to engage with an audience, but they also have the opportunity to generate revenue. It's a model that makes sense for everybody," said Buser..
With the arrival of Xi recently, many of you might have dipped back into Playstation Home for a while
But we suppose you've run out of stuff to do until the next set of Xi missions right? Seems like many of you are just running out of reasons to visit Home. Which is why Sony have just announced their plans to "refresh" the experience with...
Playstation Home Xi has just launched
It's essentially an Alternate Reality game that takes place within the Playstation Home application. We've spent a few minutes with it and think it's absolutely brilliant. Essentially, you enter a new area called The Hub via the Home Square. From here you're giving a tour around a mysterious room. Nothing is...
We're not entirely sure how much will get announced at this years GDC
Usually the really big announcements are saved for E3, with smaller announcements at GDC. In 2007 Sony announced Playstation Home and LittleBigPlanet at GDC, as part of Sony's focus on "Game 3.0" — or community-focused, interactive gaming. This year we're not sure what...
Those of you with enough patience to sit through the most annoying video teaser in history might be able to catch a glimpse of (i
e. just a little logo) of something planned for Home called "Xi". We've no idea what it is at all, but we're open to answers on a postcard. What do you reckon?
.. You've had an update! Not only is the Playstation Home Square now tree infested but there's a new Resident Evil area for you to seduce boys dressed as women in. There's not much at the Resident Evil space yet, although there does look like something promising at the far end of the area. You need a Resident Evil 5 game to play it though. We're...
Playstation Home is finally about to get some fresh content according to community manager Ted The Dog
The Warhawk Space (which was expected last week) is now "imminent" alongside spaces for SOCOM: Confrontation and Uncharted: Drakes Fortune. Siren: Blood Curse and Resident Evil 5 content is "being prepared" as are the Street...
Fans of Warhawk will be interested to hear that the game centric Home space opens today, allowing fans of the game to communicate and team up
Within the space, a piece of furniture (the Warhawk Sand Table) will allow players to draw and plan game strategies with each other. You do this by using small objects and moving them around 2D recreations of...
If you haven't stopped by Playstation Home for a while, now might be the moment
There's a very stange "error" message on the news section of your PDA. We say "error" because it's blatantly been written in such a way to tease something. We'll be damned if we know what though. Perhaps that rumoured Firmware update?
Yoshinori Ono has told Japanese gaming-bible Famitsu that he'd like Namco's Tekken series to take advantage of Sony's social networking platform Home
Why? Because he wants to see a cross platform fighting tournament between Namco's brawler and his own Street Fighter IV. Capcom have already committed their support to the service with a bunch of...
Is Home finally starting to take shape? Capcom have announced today that the Street Fighter Home space will include a post-release patch to allow users to meet up in Home, have a little chat and then launch a game straight from the application
Resident Evil 5 will also have it's own Home space, taking the form of the "Public Assembly" area from the game. According to Capcom there will be..
