It appears that despite the complaints regarding the nickel and dime efforts Sony has made in their social networking application, it has paid dividends. It has been revealed that Sony's PlayStation Home is now responsible for over one million dollars worth of micro-transactions. These sales figures include everything from 0.49 USD T-shirts to 5.00 GBP Santa Clause outfits. Regardless of what users are purchasing, the sales figures are climbing.
There have also been reports that Sony is also looking into allowing user generated content within Home. Such an idea isn't exactly groundbreaking, as Second Life has been enjoying the benefits of this implementation for years now. While it would definitely help Sony's bottom line, it goes without saying that this would be a moderator's nightmare.
Whichever way Sony decides to go, Home should continue to thrive.
