PlayStation Home Gets Its First Free-To-Play RPG, Mercia: Fractured Realms

Posted by Cade Peterson // Community Manager, PlayStation Digital Platforms -

Note: PlayStation Home’s content update is scheduled for Thursday this week instead of its usual Wednesday publish window.
This Thursday, August 30th, Home’s very first RPG opens its gates — and it’s free-to-play. Lockwood’s Dream Island floats into view, LOOT’s Active EOD (Entertainment On Demand) TVs arrive in a variety of sizes, and much more. Here’s the list of what’s new and happening in PlayStation Home. (Mercia:Fractured Realms, PlayStation Home, PlayStation Home Mall, PS3)

Does anyone still use Home? Haven't used it for about a year, might actually check this out. I just hope it doesn't take a year to actually log on.

for future reference, yes, 20 million people use it... ok? Maybe that will help to prevent the same question in every single HOME article.

That's why I don't even bother to reply to those kinds of questions anymore.

20 million? They must be playing hide & seek when I go on there!! (20 million TOTAL visitors maybe) Even during E3 it wasn't THAT busy!

I've been wandering if the final version of home will be finalized in the next Sony console, because it always says beta next to home logo as you start home
Godmars290  +   979d ago
No. That one comes up EVERY time in a Home related article.

Sort of on subject: wonder whatever happened to a steampunk themed area they were doing? That was suppose to have RPG features as well.

That 20 million is spread out across several versions of Home, 4 that I can think of, and people are on at different times of day, so yeah 20 million users is very possible. Also when a space reaches it's user limit another one is created, so for example there are sometimes multiple Singstar spaces.

Yeah guys I'm just like soooooo sorry I asked such a simple question considering I haven't read a Playstation Home article or logged on in over a year.

If the community's as friendly as you guys I sure as hell am glad I don't log on.

Cut them a little slack. I click on N4G articles about Home expecting to see multiple Home haters, and there's usually someone near the top asking the very question you asked. People say it's failed, despite the number of users and the money Sony makes with it. Correcting the haters on here gets to be a reflex after awhile.

That's the thing i'm not a hater, I love my Playstation 3 and I just wanted to know how the community was on a game I haven't visited in well over a year.

I use it sometimes. This looks interesting. Might login as well.
nik666uk  +   979d ago
If it had newer game trailers people would use it more, it has all those cinemas going to waste

People keep bringing up PS4 but yet PS Home is still in BETA.
