Ability To Launch Games From Within PlayStation Home Hits Soon

One of PlayStation Home's biggest drawbacks to date has been that it's so...disconnected from the rest of the console. Making it an impractical thing. Home v1.3 is looking to change that.

As we liveblogged, sometime this "fall" (our spring), Home will be upgraded to v1.3, and with that upgrade a host of changes will be made to the social service. Chief amongst those will be the ability for people to not just launch PlayStation 3 games from within the program, but meet people in Home and jump into a game together.

The catch? Not all games will support this feature. Indeed, when 1.3 launches, only a select few will, those being Street Fighter IV, Resistance 2, MotorStorm, and Far Cry 2.

Other features being added as part of the update include the ability to preview store items, an in-Home camera for happy snaps and more emoticons for you to use while dry-humping the only female avatar in the plaza.

PlayStation Home v1.3 Coming This September [PlayStation]


    I think you miss understand the blog MATE.

    " Universal. Game. Launching. That’s right – you can now launch into any PlayStation 3 game directly from Home. Titles that fully support game launching (like Street Fighter IV, Resistance 2, MotorStorm, and Far Cry 2) will be identified by separate icons"

    Notice the last sentence quoted. Games like R2, etc will have different icons............my understanding is that it will be ALL GAMES
