Ability To Launch Games From Within PlayStation Home Hits This Fall

Illustration for article titled Ability To Launch Games From Within PlayStation Home Hits This Fall

One of PlayStation Home's biggest drawbacks to date has been that it's so...disconnected from the rest of the console. Making it an impractical thing. Home v1.3 is looking to change that.

As we liveblogged, sometime this "fall", Home will be upgraded to v1.3, and with that upgrade a host of changes will be made to the social service. Chief amongst those will be the ability for people to launch any PlayStation 3 game from within the program (currently only a few titles support this).

Those games that already support the feature - like Street Fighter IV, Resistance 2, MotorStorm, and Far Cry 2 - will have additional "launching" capabilities, like jump-in multiplayer.

Other features being added as part of the update include the ability to preview store items, an in-Home camera for happy snaps and more emoticons for you to use while dry-humping the only female avatar in the plaza.

For a short time it seemed like the negative comments about Home on Kotaku were trailing off ...

... sadly this phenomenon looks to have course-corrected itself.

There's nothing more sad (and mildly amusing, but mostly sad) than somebody taking the time to write something like "Home sucks Sony should stop making it!" as a comment for an article clearly detailing multiple improvements in the service.

I wonder if people who post negative things in threads like this get angry when improvements happen in their real life ... do they cry when they get a raise at work? Do they complain to the manager when they win a free burger in Monopoly at McDonalds? Do they punch their girlfriends when they tell them they they love them?
