Sony discuss future evolution of Home

Robots, TV, podcasts and more sighted

Chatting in Japan at the CESA Developers Conference, Sony executive Masami Kando has detailed some of the work being undertaken on Home (thanks Joystiq).

A future update to the online virtual world will allow users to access the PlayStation Store, downloading demos and entering directly into online play sessions.

Radio, podcasts and even television (complete with adverts) will also be added to Home, and this content will be synchronised between users.

A sort-of pet robot was also shown off in Home, your mechanical pal reacting to your calls without direct controls - and this feature too could add another dimension to the currently occasionally spartan Home experience.

More soon.
