New Enhancements, Fixes Coming With Home Update 1.21
Think you know PlayStation Home? Well, if you logged in when it launched back in late December and wandered about for five minutes, and haven't returned...you don't.
Another big update is around the corner; it's set to arrive on May 21 - that's next week, people - and this version 1.21 will not only include a variety of upgrades to the new EA Sports Complex, but it will also boast a horde of improvements, repairs and alterations. You can read the entire list over at PlayStation LifeStlye, but just as a summary: the chat log has been updated, "the process of moving between spaces has been streamlined which should make relocating a bit faster," loading times have been reduced, they've changed how furniture is saved in a Clubhouse (this should put a stop to missing furniture), and some of the fixes include dealing with a problem that may cause Home rewards to disappear, and with the issue of a bug "that would cause a crash when the user is signed out of the PSN while logging on to Home." Really, there's a whole lot more than this - just visit the link above - and it seems that with every passing month, PlayStation Home evolves and changes...as it should. The potential is undeniable and although it was a little bare when it first launched last year, things are really starting to take shape.
We can't wait to see more Home spaces and materials, and you can bet that more exclusive games will see distinct connections to this innovative virtual social communication service.
