New PlayStation Home Update Brings Navigation, Interface Changes

Sony Computer Entertainment America is rolling out a new update to PlayStation Home tomorrow, designed to speed load times, streamline the user login process and ease navigation through a new category-based interface.
Sony Computer Entertainment America is rolling out a new update to PlayStation Home tomorrow. The company says Home version 1.35 will bring faster load times and a new navigation interface to its console virtual world. The new interface features several categories designed to make it easier for users to find their friends and favorite spaces in the Home environment, and to navigate quickly via a category system of favorites. SCEA also aims to make the login process faster and easier through the update. Users can access the new navigator directly from the PS3's XrossMediaBar. According to the company, Home's now up to 12 million registered users worldwide, who average about 60 minutes per session in the world. Players interact with one another via avatars, and in addition to socializing among themselves, they can play games, get virtual items and engage with spaces themed around major console titles. "With new users, games, entertaining new spaces and virtual items added weekly, PlayStation Home continues to dramatically evolve to offer new challenges and experiences with every visit," says PlayStation Home director Jack Buser.
