Sony to Redesign Playstation Home


Sony Computer Entertainment America (SCEA) today announced major changes coming to PlayStation Home in Fall 2011, adding more games, community events, user-generated content, while providing players with additional navigation, shopping, socialization and entertainment options.

From the Hub, players will be able to teleport to various genre-based districts, where they will encounter games tailored to their interests and style, while introducing them to a selection of games.

The new core experience focuses on connecting players with game content that pertains to their style and mood. In the Hub, players can head over to the Activity Board, where they will discover the questing system that transforms PlayStation Home itself into a game, find games and content, and create their own events to share with their friends.

"PlayStation Home's new core experience is a giant leap in the evolution of the platform, not to mention a major milestone for PlayStation Network, and its new model quickly deploys our users to many compelling free-to-play games that fit their interests," said Jack Buser, director of PlayStation Home, SCEA. "With this update, coming this fall, PlayStation Home becomes a game itself, making it the most robust gamified social experience available."

PlayStation Home's new core experience provides players with a dynamic pool of activities and challenges throughout the Hub and districts, with thematic content that enables players to find games that are relevant to their interests:

The Hub: The new Hub brings games directly to players with a featured game front-and-center upon login, the Activity Board where players can engage in quests and community activities, and a direct path to free games via the teleporter.





Action District: A gathering place for the hardcore demographic, the Action District has an urban feel reminiscent of a first-person shooter level and provides a direct travel point to action and horror games.



Sportswalk: The Sportswalk has an outside-the-stadium feel with instant major league sports scores, headlines and highlights, ample space for sports-themed games and provides direct travel points to sports-related games.

Adventure District: The Adventure District drops you in a lush island jungle with an air of mystery, hidden treasure and discovery, where players will be able to launch directly into adventure-themed games.

Pier Park: A waterfront boardwalk leads players to carnival, puzzle, outdoor and arcade games.



Also planned to be released this fall as a separate core client upgrade is a revamp of the underlying user experience in PlayStation Home. This update will deliver a more streamlined experience upon login with customized tracks for new, returning and regular PlayStation Home users, minimizing the time it takes for players to get into games.

Sony said that PlayStation Home has been used by over 23 million users worldwide.
