PlayStation Home Goes Old School

May 13, 2010 Written by Mike Hartnett

Those of you out there who frequent PlayStation Home will be pleased to know that an all-new, relatively large space is on its way and we’ve got the first details for you!

This new public space, simply entitled “The Playground”, will be one gigantic space reminiscent of old-school urban New Jersey/New York and will serve as one of the more impressive publicly accessible spaces to date. If you happen to be walking about the city, you’ll be able to join in on some block party fun, dancing to some old school 1980’s beats (hopefully licensed), play a game of H-O-R-S-E on the basketball courts or stroll through the park for a game of chess. The city rooftops are also accessible via fire escapes for your all-around chill out sessions where music will also be playing.

So far we haven’t received any ETA but, according to Home producer Jeffrey Gullett, we can expect the space to hit our consoles “soon”. We’ll be sure to let you know if we hear anything further regarding the release details for this new addition to the Home universe. In the meantime, check out the pics of this upcoming space below, they’re actually quite nice.
