Home is where the Virtual heart is

Sony modifies Playstation Home to provide a social gaming experience with free-to-play games. Will “Home” become a destination for online gamers? Articles and analysis from:

VentureBeat ” Home is evolving to become more of a platform for playing social games. The 230 titles available on Home are aimed at Home’s mostly hardcore fans, but they are lighter and more casual experiences than users would find in disk-based PlayStation 3 games. “

Financial Times ” With Sony providing core back-end services, Home is an attractive and easy environment in which publishers can develop, experiment and evolve their titles.  It is pushing a freemium model of free-to-play games with players able to buy virtual items. “
