GDC09: PlayStation Home to feature three new spaces every month


Have you seen everything there is to see in the Red Bull Air Race? Have you met with gamers in the Warhawk and Resident Evil 5 spaces? Hankering for more? No problem -- Sony's online community is rapidly expanding, whether you want it to or not. Jack Buser, director of PlayStation Home, promised GDC attendees that "you'll see about three new spaces launched a month." Unsurprising, considering the 20+ companies signed up to make content for the service.

Surprisingly, Home has already accumulated quite a following, with over 5 million users worldwide, 2.2 million in North America. According to Buser, a "good space" will get a quarter of a million visits each week, with 75 percent of its users spending more than 10 minutes online. For advertisers, that looks like quite the sweet number.

Buser didn't reveal a timeline of future Home spaces, but we do know that EA Sports and Guitar Hero will be getting new Home communities very soon.
