Photo Sharing is Coming to Sony's PlayStation Home
Update: We experienced a minor glitch this morning with the Buzz space in PlayStation. We know what the issue is and we are working to resolve it as soon as possible. Please check back with the blog for an update on when it will go live.
Today PlayStation Home Community Manager CydoniaX has announced that Photo Sharing is coming to PlayStation Home, as follows:
Greetings, Homies. Fasten your seatbelts, because we have the most exciting news to hit PlayStation Home since Open Beta! We know you loyal Home fans have been asking for media sharing since the get-go, and we're very happy to tell you that the first stage is here!
Photo sharing, the first feature to support user-generated content, is finally coming to PlayStation Home! Starting today, Thursday, June 4th, you'll be able to purchase picture frames in the Mall, upload photos from your hard drive or select from a gallery of default pictures, and then display them in your personal apartments.
So if you've got photos from your latest game tournament that you want to share, all you have to do is upload them, choose the angle and size options for display, and then invite your friends back to your Home pad for your viewing party. Awesome!
But that's not all! As usual, we have more exciting content updates coming today, including the highly-anticipated launch of the brand-new Buzz! game space. Get ready to strain your brain and freak your mind with this fast-paced, interactive quiz game. You'll have to work with your friends and fellow community members to answer the questions lickety-split (hint: some organized sprinting may be necessary).
Join the Home Community Management team in the Buzz! Space throughout the day where we'll be challenging you to a game or three. Be sure to visit the [Register or Login to view links] to discover what it takes to get your own quizzes into the Buzz! game space for future challenges.
When you need a break from thinking, be sure to visit the Mall for some retail therapy. It will be packing brand-new Ghostbusters costumes, designer duds for dandified men and women, and still more Street Fighter IV costumes.
Last but not least...word on the street is that everyone's favorite ARG, Xi, will be revealing new spaces, ornaments, and mini-games.. Keep on playing, because it's not over til the last butterfly flutters.
