PlayStation Home is getting a new service update tomorrow, 1.35, which will decrease load times and allow users to access Sony’s service much faster than before. The Home World Map will be replaced with a new intuitive navigation system.
The new interface will feature multiple categories to allow for faster navigation. Everything, Sony says, will be faster – locating friends, and navigating your preferred spaces.
Here are some details about the catagories:
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.
In addition to these categories, Home 1.35 will enhance the login process. Immediately after launching Home via the XMB, users will be directed to the Home navigator to begin exploring instantly.
There are some 12 million registered Home users around the world. These users average 60 minutes per session to play an assortment of games, attend events, watch videos, listen to music, or launch into multiplayer PS3 games. But, we know why you really play Home – to collect PS memorabilia for your personal space.

Sweet! I play some stuff in the Bowling Alley with my sister on Home all the time. It's nice to see that it'll load faster.

@1 - "There are some 12 million registered Home users around the world" - but, that's just registered - so hard to say who still uses it.

@1..... #2 pretty much answered your question there

@1 be serious, since it's free why don't you sign in and see how many people are on. A lot.

@5 Someone could invite me to watch paint dry for free. . . . doesn't mean I want to do it.

I don't see a need for an update, this update should not have to be an update it should have been "faster" from the start. It took them this long to make things "faster" getting around in HOME?

Home ? what's that again ? i used to use it abit but there was nothing to do...this '' update '' should have been when Home started...if only they made it like GTA so you could kill each other

That was my #1 complaint about Home. It takes FOREVER to load up and travel from area to area. I also hate the bubble machine. What a dumb idea...

Nice, it does take quite a long time.
@ all the haters: Who cares? Nobody gives a **** if you use Home or not, stop wasting time even commenting. Its the same BS every time a Home article is posted. We get it - you don't like Home, get on with your lives and don't use Home then, we don't care at all.
@7 I guess my point would be that things are painted and paint dries even if you aren't there or interested.@16 Well said. Most people think that their personal choice not to use home or their lack of interest in it is divine mandate. As if there is no reason to update it because "they" don't use it. I guess they are delusional enough to think they're the only customers sony has. All they have to do is sign in once to see all the people who are using home and how little weight their opinion carries in that community.

It's weird how people happily socialize on websites but as soon as a similar thing is suggested in Home (with an assortment of mini games etc to give you something else to do at the same time) it's "rubbish."
