Sony Computer Entertainment Europe (SCEE) have announced that the new design for PlayStation Home will be available from today.
The redesign of PlayStation Home has all new exclusive gaming districts and social content to fit your own preferences. Games, people and places are easier to access and all this helps create the biggest social gaming platform.
The four new districts of PlayStation Home 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 DeceptionTM, 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.
There are also new places in order for gamers to meet up. Bowling and chess amongst other old favourites have also been kept to preserve some classic and nostalgic gaming. Darren Cairns, Head of Online Marketing at SCEE had this to say:
“The new revamp of PlayStation Home puts you right at the centre of a world of games, 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.”
