Universal game launching coming to Home in September

  • Posted August 20th, 2009 at 02:48 EDT by Adam Dolge

Sony is trying to place an even stronger emphasis on its Home project. We now know that perhaps the most requested feature is coming soon. PlayStation Home v1.3 will launch in September, and one of the biggest additions is universal game launching, allowing you to launch into any PlayStation 3 game directly from Home.

Over at the PlayStation Blog, there’s quite a bit of information about the updates coming to Home. A simplified game launching system will bring you from Home to the start menu of your favorite game, meaning you no longer have to sign out of Home to play a game. All you have to do is insert your game disc while in Home and follow the on-screen directions.

Other additions include an in-store item previewing option, and additional portable objects. Everyone will get a free camera so you can take and share photos, which will be saved to the Photo section of your XMB. You’ll get some new emotes, new poses, new clothing categories, a new queuing system, and a new optimized targeting system.

Look for all these updates, and more, coming with Home v1.3 this September.
