PlayStation Home update

"We have an incredible number of new surprises ahead," says Sony

Sony has released a lengthy update promising some big changes to the world of PlayStation Home, PS3's online virtual world.

"As we start the new year, we are not slowing down," said Jack Buser, director of Home. "We are adding new spaces, community events and virtual items each and every week, with many of these updates based directly on your feedback.

"Last week marked an important milestone in our evolution with a new iteration of the Mall, which was heavily influenced by our community's request to have a more streamlined shopping experience. The Mall now features stores from some of our closest partners, including Loot from Sony Pictures who brought us all of the awesome Ghostbusters gear, our friends at Lockwood - creators of Sodium, and of course EA Sports, who have been among the strongest supporters of PlayStation Home since the earliest days after launch. One new face to PlayStation Home is LucasArts, who brought both Star Wars and Indiana Jones to their new store in the PlayStation Home Mall."

Buser continuned, "Many of our long time community members have been asking for features, fixes and content that we have been secretly hard at work on, and will be rolling out over time.

"Rest assured that we hear your requests loud and clear (I personally use Home and read the forums daily), and although we can't deliver everything we're asked for, we will compliment all of these new features and content with a renewed focus on open dialogue and service.

"Our Home Community Managers, along with myself, continue to work on addressing your questions regarding our direction for the next year, so stay tuned to the PlayStation Home forums for what is sure to be a lively conversation!

"We have an incredible number of new surprises ahead, so if you're not already a member of the PlayStation Home community, there has never been a better time to jump in and experience all of the fun."

So there you go. Sony hasn't forgot about Home and plans big things for 2010. What do CVG's Home fans want to see?
