PlayStation Home hits 10 million users

Sony announces landmark figure alongside three new interactive spaces

PlayStation Home now has more than 10 million users, Sony has revealed.

It announced the figure alongside three new Home spaces themed on Uncharted 2, Ratchet and Clank: A Crack in Time and MotorStorm. According to Sony, a Home game space should now be a paramount part of the marketing strategy for any new game.

"PlayStation Home is fast becoming the meeting place of choice between users and developers," said Dan Hill, European Home business manager at SCEE.

"Every new game space enhances the overall experience for consumers, offering more variety, more choice and more enjoyment from a PlayStation Home session. The more game spaces there are, the better it gets, and the number of spaces keeps on growing.

"For developers, there's no better way of driving interest in their titles than giving fans a hands-on, interactive experience based around the game itself. A game space in PlayStation Home ought to be a core element of every studio's marketing strategy for new titles."

This week Sony also launched Sodium One, Home's first microtransaction based MMO, which introduces mini-games, purchasable virtual items and socialising areas such as a bar to users.
