PlayStation Home revamped and relaunched

Sony's PlayStation Home social gaming space has been relaunched and is hitting PS3s in the PAL district today (3 November).

The new Home is more game focused, with extra detail to reward the 23 million or so users of the platform.

New features include The Hub, which looks to be the seemingly compulsory social networking side to the platform.

There's also the Action District, which is aimed squarely at FPS fans and contains a free-to-play game called Bootlegger 29; Sportswalk, with live scores and sports sim based action including pool, darts and poker; the Adventure District, where players will be able to launch directly into adventure-themed games and is themed on Uncharted 3: Drakes Deception, and Indie Park which is "a unique opportunity for up and coming developers to show off their talent and for users to experience their innovation first hand".

"The new revamp of PlayStation Home puts you right at the centre of a world of games", said Darren Cairns, head of online marketing at SCEE. "We now have multiple spaces, games and activities themed around the types of games you know and love on your PS3 - and it's free to join in and have a look around.

"PlayStation Home provides a completely unique way to meet your PlayStation Network friends and play, interact or simply hang out with them."

The all-new PlayStation Home is rolling out now and the buzz on Twitter suggests some folk have it already. If you don't, keep trying - it should hit your PS3 XMB soon.
