We have all dreamed of this. VEEMEE, an independent creator of branded and original content for games platforms and virtual worlds, has announced that you too can own your own Pub in SCEA’s PlayStation Home. Move over Guy Ritchie, looks like you may have some competition in the Pub business. Modeled after the famed The London Pub, gamers can have all of the goodness that comes from running their own Pub without ever leaving the house. Dart boards, a fireplace, and beer pumps await you as you take a plunge in the watering hole business.

Commenting on the upcoming release of The London Pub, Caspar Thykier, CEO at VEEMEE said, “We’re really excited to be launching such a high quality, interactive PlayStation® Home space, themed around such a famous and quintessentially British icon. The London Pub in Home is sure to become a favorite hang-out for the ever growing community of Home inhabitants, and is the perfect place to relax, meet friends and play games after a hard day at work.”

Kirk Ewing, Creative Director at VEEMEE explains, “It’s always nice to inject a bit of humor into the games industry. In a virtual pub you can get all the banter but obviously none of the booze. In The London Pub in Home we always encourage people to ‘Think Responsibly’!”

So head over to the PlayStation Network and grab the deed to the Pub of your dreams. Available now for $5.99 US.
