Following the announcement of PlayStation Home at the Game Developer’s Conference (GDC), a question lurking on everyone mind is if the service will be available on other devices. In a Home technical FAQ on Sony Computer Entertainment’s DevNet service, the company addressed the question of whether Home will be accessible outside of your PlayStation 3. The company confirmed that aspects of Home are being considered for use on the PSP and possibly even mobile phones. Sony did not release any information about a mobile version of Home or give a timeline of when to expect further answers on these possibilities. The full quote about how Home relates to PSP is as follows:
“Q: Is Home a PS3 specific service? Will users be able to access Home through other devices? Initially Home will only be accessible via that PLAYSTATION 3, although over time our intention is to enable users to interface certain Home features and services via other networked devices such as PlayStation Portable (PSP) and mobile phones.”
If a PSP version is released in the future, it could feature standard communication service like text chat, VOIP exchanges, AIM-style Friend Lists, etc. instead of a 3D version of home seen on the PlayStation 3. Here are some screenshots of the upcoming Home service for the PlayStation 3:
Sounds like we have a long wait for what?
More speculation over what could be amazing updates for the PSP or more lame security updates.
Until Sony steps it up and releases a PSP keyboard I’m not likely to be satisfied with what they are spending their time and resources on.
this is like a more advanced version of second life. I heard its coming our in october.
if this came out 4 psp da we have to download it or can we just get a umd
most likey a UMD. The PS3 version is gonna be around 500mb.
