Home redesign: A video tour

Sony shows you around the all-new PlayStation Home

PlayStation Home is set for a massive refresh soon, and Sony has released a video tour showing you around the many new features you'll see in the redesign.

As Home director Jack Buser explains, the new Home will feature "a brand new Hub, genre-based districts, Total Game Integration, and a new questing system that turns Home itself into a game".

Going into further detail, he says: "PlayStation Home's new genre-based districts include a number of diverse and exclusive games that cater to players' different interests and styles. For example, in the Action District, you'll be able to enjoy the free and exclusive first-person shooter game that runs inside Home itself, Bootleggers '29. We'll also be bringing back some of your favorite Total Game Integration events here such as Dead Island and Killzone 3, as well as feature teleporters to popular games such as Sodium.

"If sports are more up your alley, you'll definitely find yourself at home in the Sportswalk, where players will have access to games like Home Hold'em (a full-featured Texas Hold'em poker game), live sports scores and video highlights, as well as a game of PlayStation Home Sports Trivia where you can reap plenty of rewards. And in Pier Park, you can race your own remote controlled car against friends in RC Rally, or relax with friends and take a ride on the Ferris Wheel."

Buser adds: "All of this is tied together with a new quest system that turns PlayStation Home itself into a game. All you'll have to do is check out the Activity Board in the Hub when you're ready to get started, and you'll be ready to start racking up the rewards."

Here's the video tour:
