Happy Anniversary, PlayStation Home
Today marks the two year anniversary for the social game platform, PlayStation Home. In just a matter of two years, 17 million users have seen a world unfold before them, with over 60 public spaces and more than 200 ready-to-play mini-games to keep busy for a while.
“It’s amazing to look back at the evolution of PlayStation Home over just two short years. In contrast to the 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,” said Jack Buser, director, PlayStation Home. “Furthermore, the experience of PlayStation Home itself has radically improved over the years, 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. We are seeing incredible momentum and can’t wait to deliver even more games and content to PlayStation Home’s 17 million worldwide users.”
Usually its the other way around, but as part of its anniversary, PlayStation Home is introducing a few new games exclusively to the platform. Indie developers like Outso, Mass Media and Hellfire Games have had great success in developing full-length titles for PlayStation Home. Well, 2011 will be no different, as new IPs from Jet Set Games and a sequel from Outso is in the works.
After the break, you’ll find more information regarding each of the upcoming titles that are coming to PlayStation Home within 2011.
