127w ago - SCEE Home Community Lead Alex Weekes has announced news of reliving old favorites in the PSN Sphere as part of this weeks PlayStation Home content update.
To quote: December is a great month for events, and so it is that this week we announce the launch of the PSN Sphere public space.
The brand new PSN Sphere will showcase the top PlayStation Network titles and act as a hub for accessing the uniquely themed event spaces devoted to each title. At launch, the Sphere will host three classic and much-loved event spaces: Fat Princess, Hustle Kings and Gravity Crash.
In addition, those who love puzzles should try out the maze mini game, in which you'll use the SIXAXIS controller to navigate a glass ball towards a portal against the clock. There's a reward on offer for each area navigated... if you're fast enough!
The Sphere will be worth revisiting over time, as it grows with information about upcoming titles as well as themed areas for the best titles; the first of which is due soon, and is sure to send a shiver down your spine!

128w 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:
