Warhawk Patch To Feature PS Home Integration

What does PlayStation Home have to do with Warhawk? Well, plenty, if you look closely at the upcoming v1.3 game update for the addictive online flight/action title.

According to Ripten and Warhawk game creator Dylan Jobe, v1.3 will bring along several enhancements, including Home integration. ...oh really? Yep, Jobe says we'll be able to form groups, meet up in Home apartments and other "Home spaces," chat about strategy and even launch a game from within the online communication service. We've heard this would be one of the big draws of Home, as Sony revealed at last year's E3. Jobe spoke more about the possibilities between his brainchild and Home, although it's fairly obvious he can't speak about anything official just yet.

"Now this is just the beginning of what we’re gonna to be doing with HOME and there’s some really neat stuff on the horizon. I’d love to show you more of the cool HOME stuff that we’re working on but I suspect I’d get a PR-shank to the spine…or possibly a lung.

So I gotta say that I’m actually super relieved that we’re putting in *REAL* legit value for players and *NOT* making HOME a portal for SONY to jam branding and marketing schwag down player’s throats!

As a gamer, I’m excited *and* relieved to see the direction HOME is taking.

Now, all of this is great news, but perhaps most intriguing of all is the fact that since this patch has been in testing for a while, it can't be that far off. In turn, does this mean we can expect PlayStation Home to arrive not long after? We can't wait to hear more about this; let's hope Jobe provides more info, and Sony is willing to release an actual Home launch date. Soon.

I'm hoping to hear more about Home from GDC next week...because right now, I don't think too many people are all that excited about it simply because there isn't a whole lot of information out there yet

When Home was first announced almost exactly a year ago, I was stoked. But since then my excitement has nearly disappeared about it. The more I hear the more I see bullshit micro transactions and stupid glitz and glam. I suspect that a release date will be set next week and that Sony will eventually delay it yet again. So I don't think we'll actually see this until July or August.

Even if it is being delayed again or no new announcement, I'd really rather see a virtually bug free environment vs. a rush job. I really can't wait for HOME, I guess I just like customizing stuff really :)
