Sony’s PlayStation Home will get a new design this coming Fall, re-focusing the intent of the “Home” environment from a virtual reality space into more or less a place to find and play games. Sure, the new “Hub” will still push community events, quests and user-contributed content via the Activity Board, but lots of free games and an enhanced shopping experience seem to be what Sony has focused on with the re-design. Upcoming on the new PlayStation Home: the “Action District,” “Sportswalk,” “Adventure District,” and “Peir Park.”
Sony has also improved user experience with an update for users that reduces the time for players to get into games. Once logged in, users will get customized tracks giving them quicker access to past activities.
According to Sony, PlayStation Home is used by more than 23 million users worldwide.
