These Video Game Publishers Can Work On PlayStation Home Stuff

As of January 2009, Sony Computer Entertainment handed out 24 licenses for PlayStation Home development. Just because a publisher has a license doesn’t automatically mean they have plans to set up shop and hock virtual items. A license means they can do that kind of thing or utilize the PlayStation Home reward system.

 

Nippon Ichi is doing exactly that by selling Prinny decorations and avatar items based on physical t-shirts. Namco Bandai used their license to integrate a collection of classic Namco arcade games into PlayStation Home in addition to selling Pac-Man t-shirts. Paon who holds the rights to a handful of Data East intellectual properties haven’t done anything with theirs.

 

Here’s the list of approved PlayStation Home developers so far:

 

Acquire
Activision
AQ Interactive
Atlus
Capcom
D3 Publisher
Disney Interactive
EA
Game Republic
Genki
Gungho
Hudson
Irem
Koei
Konami
Namco Bandai
Nippon Ichi
Paon
Q Entertainment
Sega
SNK Playmore
Spike
Tecmo
Ubisoft

 

Notice anyone missing? Square Enix isn’t on there so don’t expect a Final Fantasy XIII lounge yet.

    Seeing this list I think we will see a Disgaea lounge at some point and Yakuza 3 lounge is not far a way.
    Its shame about Square Enix as Taito has like a million old arcade that they can add to Home.

    All the Playstation fans thought Home was going to be the center of the PS3′s online experience. A portal leading you to all aspects similar to what the 360 has. Instead what they got was this weird useless app and no amount of additional downloadable content from the business world is going to change that.

      It’s sad to realize that after the wait. I could have sworn we were going to be able to develop our our content and set up our own shops to become @home entrepreneurs of sorts…

    Noooo!!!!! SQUARE ENIX!!!!!! but i don’t really care, i don’t have the money to waste on home.

    Everyone knew Sony’s Home for the PS3 was going to be amazing. But I don’t think anyone knew it was going to be this massive of a success. It’s only been released for a little over a couple months and there are already this huge amount of game companies supporting it.

    The Home servers are constantly filled with gamers every day. I can’t imagine how insanely popular it is going to be as all of the company’s Spaces come online. With Sony already making a million dollars just from the first month of Home being public, they are going to be making gigantic profits from it six months to a year from now.

    It must be humiliating to Microsoft to only be able to come up with that silly little Nintendo Mii ripoff. One has to wonder where those massive online fees they force Xbox owners to pay has gone to.

    Um..reward system? What reward system? Are you referring to the stuff you get for beating minigames?
    I’m still waiting to see what they plan to do with Trophies…so far they aren’t really good for anything, except maybe bragging rights. And what’s the deal with Trophy ‘levels’, anyway?
