PlayStation Home's New TV Channel
Before the holidays, we heard about Sodium One, the MMO-type game within PlayStation Home. Now, the ambitious social service gets its own TV channel (of sorts).
If you wander on into Home, you'll probably notice something new in the Home Theater: it's the "Home TV" channel, hosted by Perry Flynn and designed to keep you updated on everything related to this virtual community. They'll tell you about all the latest news and updates (which is helpful, considering the rapidly increasing size of Home) and give you the details of upcoming events and gatherings. Furthermore, you can feel like a member of the family by forwarding your own photos or news to Sony, thereby making them aware of parties and get-togethers. If they deem it cool enough, it just might show up on a new Home TV episode and your party will suddenly experience a big influx of attendees. All you gotta do is send an e-mail to firstname.lastname@example.org and cross your fingers... It's probably a good idea that Home has its own update channel, primarily due to the significant additions frequently made over the course of any given month. These days, it's easy to miss some of the small updates given the community's expansive size. Besides, although we have the likes of Pulse and Qore, we haven't yet had anything that's exclusively dedicated to Home. So it's a nice touch.
The potential for Home has always been there and if you've been busy doing other things, you need to reacquaint yourself with the significantly upgraded PS3 community.
