PlayStation Home, one of the most ambitious (and weirdest) things Sony has ever done with video games, closes down today. It will not be missed, but it should at least be remembered.
PlayStation Home is ending its service in Japan. Today, Sony announced that Home's service will end in Japan (and the rest of Asia) as of March 2015.
Retro-styled indie horror game Home is coming to PS4 and PS Vita this year. Released in June 2012 for PC, Home has got numerous updates and lots of new content since then—all of which will be part of the game's console versions. Check out the creator's post over at the PlayStation Blog for more details.
I'm sure Geordi La Forge would be pleased as punch to see the visor he used to overcome his handicap reduced to a fashion accessory for a backwater virtual world. Oh, I guess he wouldn't.
Last time we checked in on Sony's PlayStation Home service—yeah, it's still around—we found that, over the years, it's... changed. The people still using it, and paying money for things, have...interesting tastes.
This shouldn't come as a surprise. Folks at Sony own Nintendo game machines. They own the Xbox 360, too. And the same is true of those companies, too. So, it's no shocker that Shuhei Yoshida, the president of Sony Computer Entertainment's Worldwide Studies, just got a Wii U. It's also no shocker that he loves…
It feels like an age ago, and in gaming terms I guess it was. The launch of PlayStation Home, one of the cornerstones of the PS3's launch era, was meant to usher in a new kind of online interaction. A place where the connectivity of Xbox Live could be turned into a virtual world, blurring the lines between community…
Next week is Thanksgiving. Excited? No way you're more excited than Sony is about its Thanksgiving sales on movies and TV and phallic imagery.
PlayStation Home, the digital hang out space for Sony's PlayStation 3 that opened to the public in 2008, is getting an extreme makeover later this year. Sony's console social network will be redesigned for the fall, reemerging as an experience that's part theme park, part online game and part social network.
The zombie strain that strikes the vacationers on Dead Island is so virulent that even advertising the game results in a full-on undead plague, as European PlayStation Home users will discover shortly before the game launches in September.
Would you prefer to experience the magic of Sony's E3 2011 press conference from the comfort of your PlayStation 3? Of course you would, just like you'd prefer that announcement-filled keynote speech to have dozens of people doing the cabbage patch.
Sorry, PlayStation Home fans, but news about furniture in Sony's PlayStation 3 virtual world seldom excites me...except when we're looking at an AT-AT table or a chair based on the Millennium Falcon escaping a space worm. Starting tomorrow, $10 for this set in Home.
Kirk Ewing, from PlayStation Home developer Veemee (who make virtual spaces and items), reckons Sony's underwhelming virtual network service will be emerging from its long-running beta at the end of this year.
Just because a Spring blizzard just dumped a foot of snow on my house last night doesn't mean that other people can't enjoy a bit of spring fever.
PlayStation Home director Jack Buser bragged about the social network's latest population accomplishment, saying that Sony now has an impressive 12 million users signed up for the service worldwide. Why was Sony broadcasting that particular figure at GDC?
Taking a cue from the popular PlayStation 3 cross media bar, PlayStation Home 1.35 goes live tomorrow, with an all-new navigation interface that makes getting around easier than ever.
Now that everyone can finally connect to PlayStation Network, this is probably a good time to tell you that you can pick up a free baseball jersey for your Home avatar, just by going and watching a trailer.
