Sony Sends Out a New PlayStation Home Service Survey

50°
278w ago - Whether you are a first-time user, come back all the time or haven't been back in a while, it appears Sony is seeking your input on PlayStation Home.

The survey asks how many times have you visited Home since it's public BETA launch last year. Questions also include general awareness of Home and what it offers including the Spaces, Mall, Theater and so on.

Game launching was also a subject touched upon, with how frequent you do it or if you even know about it.

To quote: Sony is asking questions, and you are giving answers. What Sony wants to know:

"How appealing would each of the following potential features be if a new public space was created that was dedicated to the PlayStation brand?"

That's the main question, and Sony then breaks things down into smaller, bit-sized polling that covers everything from PlayStation dev video interviews to trailers of upcoming games to the history of PlayStation.

Confirmation: PlayStation Cloud Exists, Domain Belongs to Sony

200°
278w ago - Here we go again- another chapter in the Sony debunking a rumor turned truth saga.

A week ago PlayStation Cloud details surfaced, which Sony was quick to debunk only to have PSW Magazine July '09 Issue reveal more concrete PlayStation Cloud details.

Today, PlayStationLifestyle (linked above) has revealed that SCEA has indeed registered PlayStationCloud.com, as follows:

Registrant:
SCEA San Diego Studio
10075 Barnes Canyon Rd
San Diego, CA 92121
US
858-824-4760

SCEA San Diego recently mentioned while speaking to [Register or Login to view links] that they would be exclusively working on PSN game development. This goes against all speculation so far pegging PlayStation Cloud as a social networking service. Of course Sony San Diego could very well be developing a service or application, for the PSN with PlayStation Cloud.
