Sony Sends Out a New PlayStation Home Service Survey

Sony Sends Out a New PlayStation Home Service Survey 50°
296w ago - Whether you are a first-time user, come back all the time or haven't been back in a while, it appears Sony is seeking your input on PlayStation Home.

The survey asks how many times have you visited Home since it's public BETA launch last year. Questions also include general awareness of Home and what it offers including the Spaces, Mall, Theater and so on.

Game launching was also a subject touched upon, with how frequent you do it or if you even know about it.

To quote: Sony is asking questions, and you are giving answers. What Sony wants to know:

"How appealing would each of the following potential features be if a new public space was created that was dedicated to the PlayStation brand?"

That's the main question, and Sony then breaks things down into smaller, bit-sized polling that covers everything from PlayStation dev video interviews to trailers of upcoming games to the history of PlayStation.

Confirmation: PlayStation Cloud Exists, Domain Belongs to Sony 200°
296w ago - Here we go again- another chapter in the Sony debunking a rumor turned truth saga.

A week ago PlayStation Cloud details surfaced, which Sony was quick to debunk only to have PSW Magazine July '09 Issue reveal more concrete PlayStation Cloud details.

Today, PlayStationLifestyle (linked above) has revealed that SCEA has indeed registered PlayStationCloud.com, as follows:

Registrant:
SCEA San Diego Studio
10075 Barnes Canyon Rd
San Diego, CA 92121
US
858-824-4760

SCEA San Diego recently mentioned while speaking to Gamasutra that they would be exclusively working on PSN game development. This goes against all speculation so far pegging PlayStation Cloud as a social networking service. Of course Sony San Diego could very well be developing a service or application, for the PSN with PlayStation Cloud.

Whatever PS Cloud is, it seems as though it's going to be coming from Sony's...

296w ago - Sony's PlayStation Home platform group director Peter Edward has told SPOnG (linked above) that PS3 Motion Controller support for Home is likely, though not in development yet.

To quote: Peter Edward, director of Sony's PlayStation Home platform group, has told SPOnG that motion controller support for Home is likely, though not set in stone just yet.

Asked whether we'll see a use for the wand popping up in Home, Edward told us at the GameHorizon conference in Gateshead that "I'm sure that at some point in the future, it's something that will happen".

Explaining what the circumstances would have to be, Edward said, "That's something that I guess there would have to be a case that instigates that development. If one of our internal teams or a third party or whoever, had an amazing way that that could be implemented within Home... and there was sufficient impetus behind it, then we would have to work together on that.

297w ago - Today IGN has published a statement from Sony's Product Publicity Rep on the rumored PS3 Firmware 3.0 features.

To quote: The worldwide Web is abuzz with another PlayStation 3 rumor. This one claims that PS3 Firmware 3.0 will be out by Christmas and bring a complete overhaul in the vein of the new Xbox Experience.
