Move Gets a Space in Your PlayStation Home

Let your virtual you have a look

There's No Place Like Home: Stomping Scorpions In Sodium One

The moment I realised the true potential of PlayStation Home was when I visited the Sodium One game space

I urge anyone who's still got negative impressions of Sony's virtual world to visit Lockwood's meta-game space and pick-up the gear you need to access the full game. Sodium One is a complete experience tied into the PlayStation Home engine — there are multiple mini-games, a complete arena..

There's No Place Like Home: Photobombed In The Minis Space

This week wasn't supposed to be like this

I had a whole other series prepared for this week's There's No Place Like Home. I was going to do my best Laurence Llewelyn-Bowen and make-over my Personal Space.

PlayStation Home has grown so much since it launched

We get it now. It's truly time for everyone to give it a second-chance. The service has found its identity, its beginning to fulfill its potential.

There's No Place Like Home: A Carnival Without Coconuts?

We've never been to a carnival

Not a real carnival like you see in the movies anyway. We've been to fairs, fetes and gatherings. But never a carnival. PlayStation Home's new Midway Carnival space is the kind you never see in real-life — its set at night time in a vast opening. There's a gothic feel to the place, it's almost like stepping into the opening of a Goosebumps novel (remember those?)..

Buser: PlayStation Home Is A Very Good Business Model, Quite Profitable

The only people still hating on PlayStation Home these days are those who haven't given it a second chance

A typical day in Sony's virtual world will offer some extraordinary sights. Boys dressed as girls. Weird snowmen doing the robot in their underwear. People actually playing chess.
