Good Morning Home Community,
This week on Wednesday, April 10th, PlayStation Home is getting an update to version 1.80. With this new version comes more item types, improved moderation tools, event tools and more.
As usual, if you are updating from an old version of Home (1.40 or earlier), please wait for the orange “hard drive activity” light to stop flashing on your PS3 before commencing the patching process.
Significant changes have been made to the client to allow the development and release of future features without requiring a client update.
This means that future client patches will be more focuses on bug fixing and stability while New Features will be delivered on an individual and more regular basis outside of a client update.
Developing features in this way means we can make changes and implement bug fixes much faster, potentially on a weekly basis rather than having to wait until the next client release.
As this is a big change to the client, we aren't including a headline feature with this update to ensure it is as smooth, clean and focused as possible.
New features based on the 1.80 technology will be released throughout the coming months. Here is an idea of some that are currently in development:
