127w ago - Sony PlayStation Home Director Jack Buser has announced today that PS Home is turning two, and that some new video games are incoming as well!
To quote: It's amazing to look at the evolution of PlayStation Home and see how much it has changed since we launched in December two years ago.
From our humble beginnings in 2008, we've become a world filled with hundreds of games enjoyed by 17 million users worldwide and given PlayStation Network users a unique and dynamic gaming experience that can only be found on our platform.
The idea of what games mean in PS Home has also changed. In contrast to the handful of simple mini-games offered at launch, we now see a huge variety of games, including massive full-length games developed by some of the most prominent and innovative indie developers in our industry.
The experience of PS Home itself has radically improved over the years as well, with faster load times, zero-wait game access, intuitive navigation, and the addition of features such as group-based voice chat and robust inventory management.
They say a picture is worth a thousand words, so check out the infographic below to see how PlayStation Home has evolved over the last two years into an industry leading social game platform:
