289w ago - Sony Computer Entertainment Europe today sent over a selection of screenshots showcasing the new PlayStation Media & Events Space in Home. Last week, the PlayStation Day media event was broadcast within the area to a total of 10,000 Home BETA testers.

We'll be in Home in the new Media & Events space on the evening of Wednesday the 28th of May between 7pm BST and 8pm BST time and Ubisoft will be showcasing their new titles for you all.
And there's more to come. While Ubisoft is the first, SCEE is promising that other third party publishers will use the newly-created Home Space to broadcast events as well.
