There Was No Place Quite Like PlayStation Home

Memories of Sony's madcap virtual world

There's a big 'To Let' sign in the Home Plaza today, and the remnants of makeshift toilet paper streamers scattered about its tufts of unkempt grass.

Someone Beat Bloodborne in Around 40 Minutes

Respect

Bloodborne takes at least 30 hours to complete, but if you're not a DualShock 4 sensei, you could end up exploring Yharnam for upwards of 65 hours.

The streaming application – which you'll find on your console's dashboard – is about 10MB in size, and is exclusive to Sony's systems for the time being. How long will things remain that way?
