Sony announces new design for PlayStation Home

Posted By | On 04th, Nov. 2011

Sony today announced that the new design of the virtual world of PlayStation Home fwill be available from today. The redesign includes all-new exclusive gaming districts and social content themed to fit your preferences.

“The new revamp of PlayStation Home puts you right at the centre of a world of games”, said Darren Cairns, Head of Online Marketing at SCEE. “We now have multiple spaces, games and activities themed around the types of games you know and love on your PS3 – and it’s free to join in and have a look around. PlayStation Home provides a completely unique way to meet your PlayStation Network friends and play, interact or simply hang out with them.”

The four new districts are:

Action: With a gritty, urban aesthetic, the Action district is the perfect destination for players looking for action, shooter and horror games. Check out free-to-play game Bootlegger 29 that brings real time first person shooter gameplay to an authentic Prohibition-era environment. Team up with other users to have your own adventures for free!

Sportswalk: Experience the collective atmosphere and feel of a major sporting event with sports-themed games, special features, sports quizzes and trivia. Share your latest sporting achievements with friends over a game of pool, darts, or even drop into the poker lounge and see if you’ve got the nerve to beat your opponents and leave with your chips stacked high.

 Adventure: Immerse yourself in a beachfront jungle full of sights to see and adventure-themed games to discover throughout Adventure district. Themed around blockbuster title Uncharted 3: Drakes Deception, users can experience a Nathan Drake-style adventure, with their very own avatar.

Indie Park: The place to go to check out a huge range of bite-size games showcased by a variety of different indie developers. This zone offers a unique opportunity for up and coming developers to show off their talent and for users to experience their innovation first hand.

As well as these four gaming districts, the new design of PlayStation Home includes fresh spaces where players can meet up and interact, including The Boardwalk, have a go at playing Cogs, or hanging out in Home Square (which has also had a makeover).
