Home Client 1.5

46 replies 84 views Edited Mar 1, 2011

PlayStation Home to Add Suite of New Developer Tools and Tech with Version 1.5

Today, at the Game Developers Conference in San Francisco, we lifted the veil on PlayStation Home’s version 1.5, which will be coming to your PS3s in early spring. The update will introduce a suite of new technology with tools that will enhance your experience with real-time multiplayer, improved physics, as well as more realistic graphics and animations. PlayStation Home v1.5 was developed with one singular goal in mind: high-quality games. Developers will utilize the improved network mechanics to bolster the multiplayer experience with the fastest action available. With the revamped physics engine, developers will carry more control over physics elements, graphics, rendering and animations, which will translate to more realistic and more intricate game experiences.

This update is significantly different from what you, the PlayStation Home community, have come to expect from past core client updates. While versions 1.3 and 1.4 brought user-facing features like Voice Chat, Cross Game Invites, Navigation Improvements, In-Store Previews, New Item Types (such as Active Items and Companions), Optimized Load Times and Universal Game Launching, PlayStation Home v1.5 is packed with tools and features that will enable developers to expand the types of games possible on the platform – from first-person shooters with real-time, peer-to-peer multiplayer to kart racers and more. These new developer tools also allow for richer graphics and an overall improvement to frame-rate, which is something on top of everyone’s wish list.

The proof, as they say, is in the pudding – which is why we want to take this opportunity to show you how PlayStation Home v1.5 will impact your in-world experience. Behold SodiumTwo, the follow up to Lockwood Publishing’s massively successful tank combat game, Sodium One. The game, which is scheduled for release in conjunction with the 1.5 update, takes advantage of v1.5 and features heavily customizable jets squaring off in fast action multiplayer races at supersonic speeds. Check it out


So what are your thoughts? Its disapointing to be sure that we wont get any new toys right away, but by the looks of it this is going to enable some really cool games in Home.

lol, the idea that they improve Home's APIs so that devs can create stuff and keep it to themselves is a bizarre interpretation to reach after reading that.

Anyway, FPS? I'm there.

Improving Home's framework in any shape or form is always a plus.

Jersquall: Any new news on Home on PS4 yet?

Tempest_Fire: Due to a shifting landscape, PlayStation Home will cease publishing new content on November 12, 2014.

If the Devs have more fun developing their game,shirt,outfit..etc,I will be happier as a Home comsumer. A gamer in Home and have a better overall experience It will allow me to "Feel",what the dev had in mind even more so and appreciate it.Things like active items truly cannot judged on a grand scale yet. It is more frustrating than anything.

Please let your talents shine and show more now than before Crew. Make me dream(yes,thats gonna take some music also no matter what you do).Make me wanna stand up and applaud you and your Home Space.

Yep.  Definitely anything that make the graphics better/more realistic is most epic.
