Home Update 1.35 Streamlines, Enhances Service
PlayStation Home continues to expand and the latest update will once again make your online social experience that much better.
Today, Sony Computer Entertainment America (SCEA) has announced Home update 1.35, which will make "exploring and connecting with friends quicker and easier." This update will be available tomorrow and it will really help to streamline the entire process: load times will be decreased and it also replaces the Home World Map with an intuitive navigation system. The system will allow you to move quickly through the Home universe, and locate all your friends in just a matter of a few clicks. The categories in this navigation system include:
- Favorites: Personalize your own section to make locating and going to your favorite places quick and simple.
- Personal Spaces: Your clubhouses and personal spaces are now right at your fingertips. The personal spaces you own and the clubhouses you belong to will be viewable in one convenient location.
- Friends: Finding your friends that are signed into PlayStation Home has never been simpler. View the current location of your friends in PlayStation Home, and then navigate there to enjoy the action together.
- Explore: Browse all the spaces PlayStation Home offers. Finding spaces that suite your taste and mood is now even easier.
- Recommended: Keep up with what is “hot” in PlayStation Home. This regularly updated category will feature the newest and most exciting spaces and additions to PlayStation Home.
Lastly, update 1.35 enhances the login process; once you've started up the application, you will be taken directly to the navigator so you can start exploring almost immediately. In the past, one of the major complaints of users has been that maneuvering through Home can take a while. Obviously, this update addresses that critique, so as of tomorrow, everything will move faster and more smoothly.
