For anyone still using Playstation Home, or really just those looking for an excuse to use the application, Sony has announced via their Playstation blog that Home v1.3 will be available this Thursday.This is probably the most significant update for Home since it hit open beta at the end of last year, mainly because v1.3 will includes universal game launching straight from Home. Any game already inserted into your PS3’s blu-ray drive can now be accessed while in Home. With this important feature, Sony hopes to attract more users to start using the free service on a regular basis.
With the addition of Universal Game Launching comes item previewing, more emotes and actions, more item types, and a multitude of bug fixes. With all these new additions, Sony will also be updating the Central Plaza yet again, and including the new Neptune Suite which is simply a personal space underwater.
