PS Home announces 10 million users

Ain't no place like it.

Sony's PlayStation Home trumpet is blowing as the company announces that 10 million users inhabit the virtual world.

This revelation coincides with the release of two new Home spaces, one for Uncharted 2 and one for Ratchet & Clank 2. Sony no doubt hopes developers other than first-party flock appreciate the value of displaying their game in PlayStation Home.

Despite still being in open beta, PlayStation Home is starting to gain traction, as Red Bull, Resistance 2, Buzz!, MotorStorm and SingStar areas attract attention. Plus, many of those key features promised when Home was announced are beginning to seep into the final build, such as game launching and media streaming.

Home may not be the runaway train of success Sony had hoped, but it's no turkey.
