Namco, Nippon Ichi Contribute Content To Japanese Home

Yeah, we know: everyone wants more stuff in PlayStation Home. Don't worry, though, because Sony has plans to deliver plenty more content in 2009 and beyond, and it could all start tomorrow.

According to this European site, the first software maker's impact will be felt in Home. As you can see, Namco will throw up Tekken, Soul Calibur and Ridge Racer-themed Lounges, plus provide an even bigger Namco Museum Arcade Lounge. Nippon Ichi will also toss up a few items for sale (see the little Disgaea figures?), and that includes furniture for your interior decorating pleasure. Bandai Namco will contribute items as well, and Sony plans to issue plenty of Christmas-themed updates, as you can see by the picture posted here. In the Japanese version of Home, they already have the Siren and Everybody's Golf (Hot Shots Golf to us) Lounges, and it seems they're getting more. This information comes directly from Famitsu, as do those pics via the link above, so we have to assume it's fairly reliable information. However, whether or not these Lounges are coming to North America is debatable. Even though Sony has always said they want Home to be a worldwide service, territorial boundaries may still have an impact...

Anyway, we'll keep you updated with any and all changes and updates scheduled for Home. Remember, this is just the beginning...by this time next year, you'll be shocked to look back and see just how bare Home was when it kicked off.

I'd pay fifty cents to have a Disgaea figurine in my Home. :)

Game-specific content should be the focus of Home, now that I think of it. You can trick out your space with things from your favorite games, so right when people walk in they have a true, visual representation of what games you're really into.

Can't login lately, I guess it's alright till they straighten it out, I'm pretty busy gaming. I have 8 days to beat a couple games before the xmas games must be played. I'll just let Home sit under the sunlamp and grow bigger.

Jeez DigitalStorm...I've noticed you've been posting that alot lately...Waste of space much?

But yeah i've already spent 15$+ in home lol. If anyone from here wants to add me to their friends list, just send me a message! And by the way, that PS3 Thumbpad they advertise works great. Working at gamestop helped get me a discount to ^.~

I wouldn't mind but I'm helping you all out here. But you're all too blind to see.

Now you're $15 lighter, for what??

It's not just me either, home pre-launch was defo more upside than it is now.

The content just isnt there to make it worthwhile.

But hey - it's got potential!

/sarcasm.
