Speaking to Edge at the London Games Conference, Sony’s Pete Edwards has admitted that PlayStation Home no longer has “priority” status, saying that the firm has proved that there is a market for the online community and no longer sees its development as its first concern. “It’s been a long road,” he said. “We’ve proved there is a market out there and we’ve got a lot of people that spend a lot of time in [Home].”
“It’s not a priority right now but there is a business model there.”
I’m not really sure what he means by those statements, and with the Edge website currently down for maintenance it’s tricky to get more from the quotes saved. I’m presuming he means that actually developing for Home isn’t a priority anymore for SCEE, but courting publishers and developers to create their own content will still be up there on the to-do list. We’ll try and clarify.
