It's finally getting here. Sony wanted PlayStation Home to be able to launch games from within itself since, well, since the beginning of Home. Now it will, this autumn.
Sony also reveal that "shop-a-holics will be stoked" thanks to the "in-store item previewing option" that's coming in version 1.3. More portable items will be added, and free cameras.
"I got three words to start us off: Universal. Game. Launching. That’s right – you can now launch into any PlayStation 3 game directly from Home," posted Sony on the .
"Titles that fully support game launching (like Street Fighter IV, Resistance 2, MotorStorm, and Far Cry 2) will be identified by separate icons that appear over an avatar’s head and will have varying degrees of additional multiplayer functionality built in."
"Simplified game launching will take you from Home to the start menu of your favorite games with ease. Never again will you have to sign out of Home to play with (or against) your friends. Simply insert the disc of your choice while in Home and follow the on screen directions and you’ll be good to go." It's quite shocking that Sony left it this long.
