During Sony’s Press Conference yesterday, Phil Harrison demonstrated a feature that is new to Home. PS3 games will be able to be launched directly from inside Home, from both a Blu-Ray disc and from the hard drive. Harrison stepped into a room with eleven other people in the virtual world. He then proceeded to invite them all into a game of Motorstorm, which booted straight from Home’s PSP menu system into the multiplayer lobby, with all the people he invited ready to start.
After a few minutes of playing, Harrison decided that he’d played enough Motorstorm for now and quit the game straight back into Home. This is a feature we’re very excited about and we cannot wait to take full advantage of it once the open beta hits next month. Harrison also mentioned that the Home client is now running on mobile phones, however, it will not support 3D avatars.
